Presidential Administration's response to Pinchuk: Ukraine won't abandon EU, NATO integration, won't 'make deals' on Crimea

Presidential Administration's response to Pinchuk: Ukraine won't abandon EU, NATO integration, won't 'make deals' on Crimea

Ukraine's Presidential Administration (PA) has declared the inadmissibility of compromises with the Russian Federation in terms of aggression on its part, on which businessman Viktor Pinchuk called in his article in the British edition the Wall Street Journal.

The Wall Street Journal published an official response of the Presidential Administration (PA) of Ukraine, signed by PA deputy head Kostiantyn Yeliseyev, to Pinchuk's article. The PA's position is published under the title "Respect for Ukraine Vital for a Lasting Peace," the Internet news service Yevropeiska Pravda (European Truth) said on Thursday.

Yeliseyev strongly denies the possibility of a compromise on the key points proposed by Pinchuk. "I cannot agree with the appeal for compromises based on worries. Fear and weakness are bad advisers. They play into Russia’s appetites, invite even more aggression and greater human suffering," he said.

The article lists three key positions of Ukraine: "No reversal in European and Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine. This would be a surrender of independence, sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Ukraine. No trade in the territory of Ukraine, be it Donbas or Crimea. These territories cannot be part of a trade-off for peace. No elections in Donbas with Russian [military] boots on Ukraine’s soil," Yeliseyev wrote in his response to Pinchuk's suggestion.

According to him, "compromises on Russia’s terms are the wrong policy."............

France's Le Pen Dismisses Ukraine Blacklisting Threat Over Crimea Comments

French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has dismissed Ukraine's threat to bar her from entering the country following her assertion that Russia's annexation of Crimea was not illegal.

"Marine Le Pen had no intention of going there anyway. This issue will be solved via diplomatic channels when she becomes president of the Republic," a spokesman for Le Pen told the Reuters news agency on January 4.

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry earlier had threatened to blacklist Le Pen, saying she had shown "disrespect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine."

In a TV interview on January 3, the leader of the National Front party said: "I absolutely disagree that it was an illegal annexation."

"A referendum was held and residents of Crimea chose to rejoin Russia," said Le Pen, who is running in the April 17 presidential election on a platform that includes forging stronger ties with Russia...........

A Trump-Putin Deal on Crimea Could Trigger a Much Bigger War, Israeli Analyst Says

Post by Admin on Thu Jan 05, 2017 4:48 pm

A Trump-Putin Deal on Crimea Could Trigger a Much Bigger War, Israeli Analyst Says

“Putin himself has acknowledged,” the head of the Israeli Institute for an Eastern Partnership told Kseniya Kirillova in an interview published today by Radio Liberty, “that the Syrian war is a training ground for his army and that the state of his army has really improved” (ru.krymr.com/a/28210963.html).

The Kremlin leader is “evidently preparing his country for war” in order, among other things, to preserve his own power by launching aggression abroad. The rest of Ukraine is less likely to be in his sights than the Baltic countries, Poland, or “some countries in the South Caucasus such as Azerbaijan.”

And in the current environment, Shmulyevich says, it is possible that Putin will reach an agreement with Turkey’s Recep Tayyp Erdogan “about the participation of the Middle East or a dash into Central Asia,” a region Ankara has long coveted and one that Moscow would like to rebuild its power in.

With regard to a settlement on Crimea, he continues, “the return of Crimea is even more important for some representatives of the West than it is for the ruling Ukrainian elite.” That is because Kyiv wants to end the conflict as soon as possible, while some in the West want to maintain the principle of the inviolability of international borders by force alone.

That commitment explains the recent UN General Assembly resolution on Crimea, but Shmulyevich says, “it is important to understand that for the majority of the Western establishment, returning Crimea to Ukraine is not as important as simply finding a way to resolve it in a legal fashion.”

Putin clearly understand this, the Israeli analyst argues, and that explains why he bases his actions on what he says was Khrushchev’s illegal transfer of Crimea from the RSFSR to the Ukrainian SSR and on the fact that the Budapest Memorandum is null and voice because none of its signatories has lived up to its provisions.

Putin’s people are also arguing that “the Helsinki Accords fixed inter-state and not intra-state borders, and that the state which signed them was not Russia or Ukraine but the Soviet Union.”  Indeed, they point out, the only high-level international agreement both Russia and Ukraine have signed was the one creating the UN.

But from the point of view of Ukraine and the West, that too is a legal argument that undermines their case, Putin thinks, according to Shmulyevich. That is because when the Ukrainian SSR signed the UN treaty, it did not have Crimea within its borders, something other UN members may take note of.

What is thus likely to happen, he says, is a willingness in Kyiv to accept a deal if it formally keeps Crimea as part of Ukraine even if it does nothing to end Russian occupation, an arrangement unlikely to spark massive protests by Ukrainians given their reluctance so far even to declare war on Russia following Russia’s invasion and seizure of their territory.

In exchange, if such a deal were to be arranged, Russia would fulfill the Minsk agreements, returning the Donbass de jure but in fact retaining control there through the pro-Russian separatists on the ground who “redressed in Ukrainian uniforms” and with power remaining “in the hands of the local oligarchs.”

That would be a tragedy for Ukraine, Shmulyevich says; but a far greater tragedy would likely emerge from how Putin would read such a deal, as an indication that the West is not ready to stand up to him and that he can engage in more aggression with impunity......
