Netherlands to ratify EU-Ukraine association deal after clarifying declaration issued, - Prime Minister Rutte

As reported by NRC Handelsblad, Rutte says that a legally binding declaration must also stipulate that the EU will not grant Ukraine military and additional financial assistance.

Moreover, the agreement must not provide for the right to free movement of labor force between Ukraine and the European Union.

Earlier, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said the Netherlands were not going to stop the ratification of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU and would continue consultations that were to end on Nov. 1.

Even before, the Dutch parliament ordered the government to decide on the ratification until November 2016.

Russia’s renewed might rests on weak economic foundations

Putin’s bravado does not extend to modernisation of the economy

Speaking at an annual conference near Sochi last week, Russian president Vladimir Putin once again railed at the US for allegedly misusing its global hegemony of the past 25 years and shutting Russia out of creating the post-cold war world order.

There was also an implicit assumption in his speech: that as the US-dominated world order dissolves into what Mr Putin portrays as chaos, and Russia’s rejuvenated military challenges it in Ukraine and Syria, Moscow can address Washington on equal terms.

Yet the gap between the image Mr Putin portrayed at the 13th Valdai Discussion Club for invited foreign academics and journalists and the reality was exposed by a sobering assessment of Russia’s economy by another senior official who spoke there without attribution. It was further emphasised by a draft budget the government submitted to Russia’s parliament a day later — envisaging a 27 per cent cut in defence spending next year...............

How Putin pulls the strings - Times

Russia has four state-funded media outlets in Britain, described by Ben Nimmo of the Royal United Services Institute think tank as part of a "co-ordinated but undeclared information campaign against the United Kingdom".

Analysis of its television station, RT, reveals a pattern of favourites. Nimmo found that Jeremy Corbyn featured in 89 per cent of all RT website headlines on the 2015 Labour leadership contest - compared with 43 per cent on the BBC website. Corbyn's picture was shown on RT six times more often than all his leadership rivals put together.

Who watches this - and do they believe it? RT reached 718,000 UK viewers in the week ending October 16, about a seventh of Sky News's reach. A controlled experiment by Monica Richter of Oxford University exposed 1,000 uncommitted western viewers to rival discussions on Ukraine by RT and the BBC. Those who watched the RT discussion were more likely afterwards to express an unfavourable view of the West.........

What will Ukraine do without Uncle Joe?

No one in the U.S. government has wielded more influence over Ukraine than Vice President Joe Biden. As the Obama administration's point person on Ukraine policy, he has rallied support for Kiev in the face of Russian military intervention and cultivated a personal rapport with its leaders. But he has delivered tough love as well, delaying financial aid more than once over concerns about rampant corruption.

With Biden's tenure as vice president about to expire, the next U.S. president will have to decide who will take up his unique role as Kiev's go-to guy. The transition comes at a pivotal moment for the festering war in Ukraine, America's increasingly tense rivalry with Russia, and Europe's growing fatigue with Kiev's incessant corruption......

Hopes that Putin Will Turn Away from His Fascist Course Misplaced, Skobov Suggests

Every time Vladimir Putin makes even the slightest suggestion that he is moderating his position, there is a chorus of people who argue that he is about to scrap most or even all of his recent policies and return to where he supposedly was at the beginning of his time as president.

But such hopes – and it is entirely likely that Putin himself is interested in promoting them to keep the West off balance and interested in making a deal with some new “new” Putin – are almost certainly misplaced. According to Aleksandr Skobov, there is little chance he will stop his drive toward fascism and allow Russia to become again a normal country.

In a commentary for the portal, the Moscow commentator says that he does not believe “even for a second” that Putin will return his regime “to some kind of ‘bourgeois normalcy.” Instead, he argues, “the objective course of events will push the regime further in the direction of fascism”.

Moreover, Skobov says, he does not believe in the possibility that “there will appear in the ruling elite some kind of health-thinking progressive forces.” That group of people is so thoroughly compromised that “there is no one in it with whom one can enter into a dialogue” about a better future.

But those just below that level, he suggests, are very different and may include those who are deeply disaffected with the ruling elite. “In this milieu, it is entirely possible that disappointment in Putinism will begin to appear and at first take the form of a striving to “cleanse from perversions Putinist legality.”

Up to the present, he continues, “all attempts to construct a certain moderate ‘Putinism with a human face’ have failed.” Those interested in doing so have been so attacked by the regime for even the most modest suggestions that they have moved away from it into positions of silence or of radical opposition.
Everyone’s fed up with Putin playing madman – Slava Rabinovych

There is no danger Vladimir Putin will unleash a world war – he is not interested in doing so, Russian financier and blogger Slava Rabinovych said, speaking on Obozrevatel Oct. 31.

To start the WWIII, camps of warring sides including influential and strong countries need to exist. It is difficult to name a single country that will fight on Russia’s side. Second, Putin and his criminal gang stole billions of dollars and funneled them to the West not to have this wealth and themselves turned into radioactive ashes, Rabinovych said.   

Putin’s political declarations are no more than acting aimed at the Russians.

 “In his typical manner Putin shouts, “I am mad, you better hold me tight. If you do not meet my terms, I’ll blow up the world.” This is mere bluffing. There is no danger of a nuclear conflict and the WWIII.

There is a risk some fatal mistakes or a series of incidents like the Russian plane downed by Turkey might happen. Several such incidents may trigger off a military confrontation between NATO and Russia,” Rabinovych assumed.
