"In Budapest Memorandum is not written anywhere that Russian troops had landed in the Crimea.

This was stated by Foreign Ministry spokesman Russian Maria Zakharova broadcast Radio Liberty .

Zakharov admitted that at the end of February 2014 in Ukraine were Russian Armed Forces "in very large numbers." However, she said, "this number does not exceed the amount that is prescribed."

This Zakharov said, commenting on the issue of paragraph Budapest Memorandum, which obliges signatory states, including Russia "refrain from the threat and use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine that none of their weapons will ever be used against Ukraine "."


If this is going to be their excuse, it's total BS. The Russian forces in Sevastopol was an agreement between Ukraine and Russia. There was no exception in the Budapest Memorandum. If no agreement, not foreign military forces in Crimea. If it comes down to an international court to hear this out, the Kremlin will be made to look like fools. So their annexation in Crimea because of an agreement in Sevastopol alone will not wash, including in eastern Ukraine. End of story.

FYI. The above initial article is in Ukrainian. The English translation doesn't do it much justice. If you know Ukrainian, you'll get a clear meaning of the original article.

"The tragedy began for citizens of rapid devaluation of the currency. The dollar was worth eight hryvnia was adamant, and the fact that it dropped - a plan", - said Tymoshenko....

Grandma Tymoshenko, the delight of the Yulia Post - sorry, KyivPost.
60 year old Soviet brain.
What does she want - the hryvnia to be fixed to the dollar again? A controlled Soviet economy under Putin's wing?
I saw her on Schuster last night. But I changed channel. I cannot stand watching this woman.
I stood on Maidan for the Orange Revolution, and she and Yanukovich together destroyed this. To preserve her riches, and power.
Because of her actions 10,000 people have died.
And then she declares an income of 2 dollars a day, and buys 10,000 dollar handbags. ?!
And in the next breath she talks about corruption and oligarchs?!
But she has the money to keep the publicity going through Shuster and others. The same old scumballs. She will stay on the fringes of power for sometime.
Power = money, and money = power in Ukrainian politics.

P.S. Of course, you could argue that there is no real middle class in Ukraine because Tymoshenko, Akhmetov and others "stole" (acquired, they would argue) billions and billions in illegal (legal they would argue) deals in the 1990s.
