Military Review

Respect can not be recognized. Putting commas?

Respect can not be recognized. Putting commas?We are waiting, in fact, the results of the elections in Ukraine. What they will be in terms of honesty and legitimacy is generally a separate question.

The theme of the legitimacy of the Ukrainian presidential campaign in recent days has repeatedly touched Vladimir Putin. And he did it in an unexpectedly benevolent manner for official Kiev.

On Wednesday, he called the political processes in Ukraine positive steps, “including the legitimization of the existing authorities.” However, he added that "it will be very difficult to build relationships with people who come to power against the background of the ongoing punitive operation in the south-east of Ukraine and impede the work of the press."

On Friday at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, Putin spoke in an even more peaceful manner: “We understand that people in Ukraine want the country to come out of this protracted crisis. We also want, at the end of the day, at least some calm, and we will respect the choice of the Ukrainian people with respect. ” According to the head of the Russian state, Moscow will work with “newly elected structures,” despite the fact that the campaign conditions “do not meet modern standards.”

These standards we see. It makes no sense to list, everything is clear and so.

So Putin’s phrase “Well, God bless them, even if they do it,” bears enough information to draw some conclusions.

One can speak of three basic scenarios of Moscow’s reaction to the results of the Ukrainian elections: either completely refuse to recognize their results; or, on the contrary, to clearly and unambiguously recognize; or, finally, hang the situation.

I think it will be the third option. "Respect for the choice of citizens" - we have already passed.

An unequivocal refusal to recognize the legitimacy of the outcome of the Ukrainian election campaign is possible only in one case: if something extraordinary happens on election day or right after it. It is unlikely that Kiev will go for it. Rather the opposite. Everything will be quiet and peaceful.

Dramatic events, of course, cannot be completely ruled out, but even in this case, a possible refusal to recognize the results of voting in Ukraine will not be final and irrevocable.

An unequivocal recognition, however, does not have to wait either. In international practice, however, an unequivocal, albeit informal, evidence of the recognition of the elections is a congratulatory telegram on behalf of the head of state or by phone. This gesture is optional, but traditionally used. Poroshenko congratulations hardly wait. Too ambiguous situation, which side do not look.

The logic is very simple. Recognition is a negotiating position. The question arises: if we recognize the elections, what do we get in return? At a minimum - the implementation of the Geneva Agreements and the solution of the problems of the Russian-speaking population. Gas - too.

Anyway, in the Ukrainian crisis there are too many "ifs" to accurately predict how Moscow’s relations with Kiev will develop. In the end, unfortunately, nobody canceled radical scenarios for the development of the situation.

        I agree. In fact, all the same Hari remain in power. In addition, given Parashnik’s utter dependence on the United States, this will be a worthy successor to Turchinov’s case. At the expense of unitary Ukraine, he spoke out very clearly.

        The author of the article missed one point that Russia needs all of Ukraine, without the possibility of creating a springboard for NATO forces. Therefore, most likely there will be recognition of the new government, BUT recognition should be fraught with such a tough economic framework that, apart from cooperation with Russia, the new government had no other thoughts.

          Russia doesn’t need the whole of Ukraine, it’s not feasible. Russia needs either an ally or a really neutral Ukraine. Hard frames will not work either, everyone understands that without Russia, in economic terms, Ukraine will fall to the level of Moldova. And temporary workers in Kiev carry out tanned teams, and on his agenda the normalization of the situation in Ukraine does not appear.

Is it really the example of Yushchenko, when Bush simply said - we do not recognize the other, but contrary to the constitution, they voted for the desired result? They said from overseas - Poroshenko, that's it. Nuladn said - I give 20 lyams for reformatting the "Right Sector" into a party. So what? As Yarosh didn’t get busy, the party was registered. Why all these articles about "elections" ??? Leave it to the "political scientists"

    Clearly unlikely to succeed. Donbass and Lugansk did not vote. And that means: if Ukraine recognizes the elections as valid, it also recognizes that the DPR and LPR are cut chunks. However, they have their own (not their own) logic.
    for some reason, elections are considered to be a turning point. IMHO: no.
    Zhulya will say: let's start the 3 maidan. And all over again.

    Poroshenko - His statements yesterday
    - Will you negotiate with Moscow if you become president?

    - Russia is our neighbor, they do not choose neighbors, we may and would like to be neighboring with Sweden, for example. But we are bordering Russia, which means we will communicate. We will negotiate. Russia is our partner. Peace in the east of the country cannot be restored without Russia.

    - On which side can negotiations be held?

    - Maybe in Kiev, why not. Or there is a format for the Geneva Agreement.

    - How are you going to resolve the conflict in the east of the country?

    - Firstly, you need to protect civilians. Secondly, disarm people. Thirdly, it is necessary to guarantee citizens the right to speak. In the language they want.

    - Vladimir Putin said that it would be nice for you to return the gas debt to start negotiations. Will you return?

    - We will return. But only after a court decision. It is necessary to make the gas issue cease to be painful and normal.
    According to RBC-Ukraine, Poroshenko also commented on the future interaction with Moscow.

    “Russia is our biggest neighbor, and despite all the problems that arose not due to Ukraine’s fault, we still have enough formats to normalize relations,” he noted.

    And right there-

    "KIEV, May 26 - RIA Novosti. The active phase of the special operation in eastern Ukraine, which was actually suspended for the presidential elections on May 25, will resume in the near future," First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Vitaliy Yarema said at a briefing on Sunday evening.

    In my opinion, nothing will change either!

      piglets have a significant part of the business in Russia, and in addition, he understands that if he does not provide at least some positive, compared with the Turkish, he will also be thrown off. I think that sooner or later he will become a new prostitute like Yanuk and will try to negotiate with both the amers and us. Something seems to me that the piglet will still surprise the western hosts. In any case, the GDP has many levers of pressure on it - property in the Russian Federation, debts, a yanuk in Rostov, the possibility of recognition, which will be waved in front of him like a carrot. So it seems amers awaits a lot of interesting things.

    "If something out of the ordinary happens on election day or immediately after it. Kiev is unlikely to agree to this. Rather, on the contrary. Everything will be quiet and peaceful."

    Here's just what to do with it:
    “The National Guard fighters shot the members of the election commission who refused to open the polling station.
    As a result, one person died and another was injured.

    Without victims in the presidential elections in Ukraine could not have done. So, as a result of shooting at a polling station in Novoaydar, in the Luhansk region, one person died and another was injured.

    As reported by RIA Novosti in the press service of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), the dead and injured are members of the election commission. Fire from them was opened by fighters from the Dnepr detachment (this is the battalion of the National Guard of Ukraine). The reason was the refusal to open the polling station in the presidential election.

    The fact that as a result of the incident one person died is confirmed by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. "

People will not believe more, people will sigh bitterly with longing! And again thoughts and hopes for a miracle will disappear - suddenly, let there be one, the only one who has not betrayed, has not sinned!
    I'd like to hope that gloomy days have ended! And that the Crimean sunrise will continue, and the SUN will rise at its zenith!
    Russian world waking up from hibernation, you surprise the rest of the world!
    The greatest flight of the SPIRIT, and your asceticism!

    Julia has not yet said "the last word", although she is still purring quietly.

    Yulia Tymoshenko, who promised a permanent revolution if she was not elected president, received 13% of the vote, but on pain of a life-long deprivation of the right to enter the Schengen zone and the publication in the United States of the testimony of her accomplice Lazarenko (who was serving time in an American prison just during her premiership) renounced her revolutionary statements and recognized the "choice of the people of Ukraine."
    So, don't expect the "last word" from her. As well as from Yarosh. He is also silent for now, but for a different reason - since he has not yet been translated from English into Ukrainian and, accordingly, he has not yet voiced the text of "his" statement.

    To admit or not to admit is still open to discussion. But it is necessary to congratulate Ukraine on the new president! Why, it's not for nothing that for three months on the Maidan their asses were freezing, it was not for nothing that they shouted at the top of their lungs: "Bandera will come, put things in order." And here he is "pryishol" - such a curly "fat svidomit", the son of a Moldovan guild, who was tried in the USSR for fraud. On the Maidan 2013-14 they fought with the police, broke their arms and legs, poisoned themselves with tire smoke, froze their butts for three months, the hryvnia dropped by half, the country went in pieces, the civil war began - and all in order for the unprincipled oligarch to become president.

    I didn’t understand the author’s thought: what to do with the 7 million Donetsk and Luhansk people who did not take part in this farce called the presidential elections of "All Ukraine"? Don't give a damn about them? To give it to the "right sector" to be torn apart, what is happening now? After all, both Poroshenko and Avakov have already announced that the ATO in the East of Ukraine will continue! This means that the blood of innocent civilians will continue to flow. What kind of recognition can we talk about without stopping the ATO and the withdrawal of punitive troops? And the existing regime in Ukraine will never agree to this, for whatever reason: the presence of huge reserves of shale gas in the Donetsk region, which American gas producing corporations have laid their eyes on, undermines the foundations of Russia's safe existence in the modern world, so I predict not only non-recognition unfair elections, which the majority of Ukrainians sabotaged, but also further exacerbation of the existing situation between Russia and Ukraine. Russia must finally choose one of two things: either to come to terms with the existing situation, when international aggressors in the person of the United States will be the masters of the situation at the very borders of Russia and to destroy the Russian population, or to be indignant and finally really go from words to deeds, and support its entire economic and by military force the Russian uprising in the East of Ukraine. I understand that it is difficult to decide on this, but there is no other way. First of all, to turn off the gas to this fascist conglomerate of Ukraine for non-payment, second to recognize the existence of Novorossiya with all the ensuing consequences. This is what the progressive public of Ukraine expects from Russia. I do not think that Russia will put up with the role of a third-rate power, when all sorts of mongrels such as Romania, Poland and the Baltics will put a spoke in the wheels of Russian history.
