I want you readers to understand me well. I always give proper titles leaving gist of the matters to read them later alone.
Let’s see for example few excerpts and let me to drop a line of few words explaining why I’m choosing such controversial titles.
Moscow never put Kiev’s right to develop closer ties with the EU into doubt, it only wanted to escape risks that Ukraine’s economic integration into the European Union might have brought about, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.
“I stress this: we never questioned Ukraine’s right to develop partnership with the EU,” Lavrov told the Verdens Gang (VG) Norwegian newspaper, when he was asked about what he thought of Ukraine’s leadership seeking an agreement with the EU.
“We only want to make sure that it does not inflict damage on Russia, its Customs Union partners or any members of the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) free trade zone, including Ukraine,” the minister added.
Lavrov explained the economic agreement between the EU and Ukraine might result in duty-free imports of European goods into Russia and that had to be prevented.
Strong, formal and signed partnership with EU means that Ukraine will be part of NATO automatically, without signing nothing new. But Mr. Lavrov lies that the issue touches only free trade zone.
But what is more dangerous is betrayal of Novorussia! Read such Lavrov’s statements carefully, for Christ’s sake!
“It’s now necessary to support fledgling ties between Kiev and People’s Republics of Lugansk and Donetsk and then to start a comprehensive political dialogue with the purpose of finding ways for reaching national accord and conducting constitutional reform with the participation of all regions and political forces,” Lavrov said.
Quoting other Mr Lavrov’s platitudes from the text published on RT.com is pointless. How Moscow works to stifle creation Novorossia I expressed in my post titled Dear Kremlin Idiots.
That’s what the image shows – dear Ukrainian morons.
