Joe Santoro, and who do you think are those extremists, terrorists, occupiers? The people of Donetsk, Kharkiv and other Eastern regions of Ukraine? Since when they become terrorists in their own home? The places they where born and live in together with their parents and grandparents, their children, friends etc.? Where do you want them to go? Perhaps they should become refugees in Bulgaria? They had no problem with Ukraine ever before, neither had Ukraine with them. The problem now is the Government of the country and the people who helped this Government to power. They are the Nazis extremist, separatists and bandits, but just because they are pro-Western - they are the heroes and are doing no wrong. However, as soon as word pro-Eastern, especially pro-Russian pops up - the whole world goes into a hysterical frenzy. Sadly, you are the one of the screamers. Russia is there to stay. It always will be the main player in the Worlds stage - strong, rich, not prepared to take orders from anyone and not waggling its tail before any foreign leader or alliance.
Yes Joe the deal on the Ukraine uses great words and is completely useless.
The illegal government cant disarm their supporters in the West who no longer trust them.
The EU leaders can say we have a satisfactory deal done on the Ukraine and can carry on doing business, stock markets are up and Shell Petroleum announced significant new investment in the Uraine.
The Crimea has disappeared off Western News.
This is brilliant Western Politics, who gives a fuck about the Ukraine anyway, Western business wants to make money and does not want governments messing things up.
There is nothing in the deal that now stops the East holdind referendums on self determination.
The Western Ukranians have been used by the West and now that things are not working out the West is abandoning them in a well worded deal.
President Obama and Secty of State John Kerry have betrayed the trust of the Ukrainian people and left them hanging out to dry. This new agreement enables Russia to do nothing and claim that they simply can't do anything to push the extremist terrorist occupiers to abid by the agreement because they're "not really ours". On the Ukrainian side, their hands are tied and are now obliged not to use legitimate and lawful force against these occupiers. Some deal!! With friends like Obama and Kerry, who needs enemies? And don't think the EU, particularly David Cameron and Angela Merkle will ever agree to meaningful sanctions....they only have their own self interests at heart. What the Ukrainians should realize is that our leaders in the "West" have no balls, no principles, no resolve, no honor.
