"I'm almost sure that this opinion will change," – Ukraine’s Representative to UN Yelchenko comments Trump’s statement on Crimea

Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko downplayed the statement made by the U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to recognize illegally annexed Crimea as Russian territory.

Ambassador Volodymyr Yelchenko said in New York on July 28 as he urged the UN Security Council to declare a recent Russian move to incorporate Crimea into southern Russia "null and void" and once again reaffirm that the peninsula belongs to Ukraine, Censor.NET reports citing Radio Liberty/Radio Free Europe.

"If this is his opinion as a candidate for the president of the United States, well, this is his opinion. I hope and I'm almost sure that this opinion will change," Yelchenko said at the United Nations Security Council meeting dedicated to Crimea July 28.

"Mr. Trump is not the president of the United States, at least not yet," ambassador of Ukraine to the United Nations Organization stressed.

Earlier, Russia blocked statement of the UN Security Council on Crimea drafted by Ukraine.

EU may partially remove sanctions from Russia next year

EU may partially remove sanctions from Russia next year



Diplomat ziyavyv that sanctions will not be lifted soon, but next year may be decided to withdraw them from one sector

EU will immediately repeal sanctions against Russia, but next year may be decided on their removal on other sectors of the Russian economy.

This writes Reuters citing a diplomat from a country that advocates the preservation of sanctions.

"It is becoming difficult to keep the line (saving sanctions - Ed.)" - Said the diplomat.

"Probably the sanctions will not be lifted soon, but next year may be decided to withdraw them from one sector" - he added.

As noted, the Kremlin's tactics internationally is doing Kyiv guilty of lack of progress in the implementation of the Minsk agreements. And some diplomats say that this view could support in countries which are in favor of sanctions.

"One of the scenarios is that those countries that want the lifting of sanctions say: Ukraine is not doing enough for the implementation of the Minsk agreements. This is true, but this truth apply to Russia. However, this will lead to the lifting of sanctions "- said the diplomat.

As you know, the EU earlier this month extended the economic sanctions by the end of January 2017. Before that, some EU countries stated that the automatic extension of sanctions will not need serious discussion on this issue.

EU diplomats say that the tactics of, which is lobbying for its interests in southern southeastern member states began seriously undermine unity in the bloc on this issue.

"Russia is constantly trying to find a way to circumvent the sanctions, focusing on countries that favor a softer approach" - said the diplomat from another country, which is also in favor of maintaining sanctions.

"The result is that we see more and more countries are saying that we should analyze the sanctions, to assess what impact they have and see them again" - he added.

Italy, Greece, Hungary, Cyprus, Slovenia, Slovakia and Bulgaria were among the main goals of Moscow, diplomats say.

In addition, the unity of the EU on the issue of sanctions threatened by the countries most affected by the Russian counter sanctions.

However, the agency, there is no indication that will be lifted sanctions imposed in connection with the annexation of the Crimea.

No wonder member countries want to leave the EU, and the UK's not the only one that's been talking about it. They're weak, when it comes to building its economies within members. Their banks are getting ready to go under all at one swoop. And the EU was put together for economic purposes. Member leaders like Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel have screwed the pooch, when they opened their doors to Putin. Interesting why both countries are the ones mainly having issues with terrorist attacks. Ever wonder why, after turning their backs with sanctions against Putin suddenly they start to occur, mainly in both those countries?

Now they're planning on dropping many sanctions! I know the US won't follow suit. Just shows how weak European leaders are. They have no backbone and Europeans do shyte about it or say anything about it. Then they wonder why Europe's having so many issues and the US isn't. It's time for Europe to grow a couple. I hope the UK does leave the EU. Let them go down on their own. At least the Brits had the gonads to speak out. The UK will survive and do great on their own. Remember, many European countries depend on imports from the UK. If they go elsewhere, they'll pay more. Germany and France are on top of their importers. They'll hurt bad, if due to the UK going on their own are restricted from doing business with the UK. So that won't happen, which will make the EU less relevant.

Familiarize those faces above that are deliberately breaking the law, including sanctions THEY agreed to. But the rest of the west won't lift a finger, to make sure they don't repeat this which they have. France and Francois Hollande must be called out on this. We need to hear their justification for this. Perhaps they should be removed from NATO and let them fend for themselves. That's how much respect towards them should be shown.
