Opinion: Russia waged the war [but warns everyone about the possible affects it has]

It is like Kremlin, Duma and the Russian Federation is living in such a vacuum and closed quarters of the world. That the ones working with diplomatic measures or incentives forgets that the rest of world can think for themselves as well. Because, the Russian-Belorussian invasion of Ukraine has effects all across the globe and in the near proximity of the Russian borders.

That is all natural that the West and European Union reacts when the Russian Federation violates, destroys and occupies Ukrainian territory. The Russians are directly invading and attacking a sovereign nation. This is why the alliances and the governing bodies of Europe is changing. They will not naively believe in goodwill from a nation who brought war to it’s borders.

The war of Ukraine is close to the Baltic nations, its close to Moldova, Bulgaria and Poland. Heck, the Ukrainian war is even involving the waters of Turkey. Therefore, this war is European and the European neighbours are acting accordingly.

The Russians are warning everyone about the sanctions. They are screaming out loud and mocking them. The Russian government are coming with counter-measures against the “unfriendly” countries. The latest was to banish diplomatic people “non-grata” in Moscow. Just like the European nations has done to the diplomatic corps across the continent.

Alas, here is the issue. We know early on in the war. That President Vladimir Putin warned Finland and Sweden of joining the defence alliance of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Just like it warned and wanted Kyiv not to do the same. These are all nations with borders to the Russian Federation.

Ukraine has as well pushed for closer relations with the European Union (EU) and showing it’s Eurocentric means at heart. As they are distancing themselves from the ones who is waging war, looting, destroying and massacring their citizens. The Ukrainian has all the rights to pick their alliances and create diplomatic ties as it see fit. However, we know Kremlin and Moscow thinks otherwise.

We also know that Moldova and Georgia have both applied for membership in the EU after the war started. As that is happening, the Russians are occupies vast amount of territories in both of these nations. Which is implicating them both and their sovereignty as is. Therefore, they seek stronger ties to Brussels and Europe to help them. Because, they see what the Russians do and there is no hope for redeeming factors in the regime in Moscow.

That’s why Russia is now warning Stockholm and Helsinki. They are doing this by the voices of Kremlin. Using RIA Novosti and Komsomolskaja Pravda is now busy printing pieces of damaging sort. Where they are further warning and speaking of the implications of joining NATO. However, the damage was already done when the Russians decided to wage war in Ukraine.

What did they expect everyone else to turn a blind eye and look the other way? Hoping that the Reds of Moscow wouldn’t come their way. Alas, the Swedish and Finish decides this, because they fear and alarmed by what the Russians are currently doing. The way of the warfare and how it is handled. Isn’t giving much credit or goodwill for a respectful or an honest neighbour in the East. No, Russians has made this bed and they got to sleep in it.

It seems like the Russians expected the world not to see the hurt and damage. They expected that an attack in it’s backyard wouldn’t have any consequences. However, it does and sovereign nations change their ways. When they see a similar nation and a bordering one being invaded. They don’t want to be violated or destroyed by Russia either. These just wants alliances and defence mechanisms that can possibly counter the Russian army. Because, there is no trust that Russians wouldn’t use their armies and violate them in the future.

When the Russians can try to invade and annex the whole Ukraine. What stops them from going further? Heck, it wasn’t long ago Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev wrote in March “About Poland” and had romantic ideas about Warsaw. While glossing over how the Soviet and Russians terrorized and killed the Poles. That just shows what sort of mediocrity of propaganda the Russian are producing of late. When he can direct and pin Poland. Where else can the Russians plan to go next?

Because, the Russians thought this would be a quick blitzkrieg and takeover Kyiv within 48 hour or 3 days. However, we are at 50 something days and they are now trying to tear apart the Donbas regions, which they have already “liberated” and promised “freedom” as the “Special Operation” was announced by the mighty President a while ago.

With that all in mind. The Russians cannot think warning the Swedish and Finnish now. They waged war and they are reacting within reason. It is only reasonable for them to do something. We the world can easily assess that the Kremlin, Duma and Moscow isn’t to be trusted. They can easily speak of military training exercises on the borders for months and with a blink of an eye decide to invade a sovereign nation. When the Russians could do that to Ukraine. They can do that to everyone else too and the neighbours should find ways of defending themselves.

So, the Russians cannot use NATO as an excuse either or the EU membership of former USSR republics. That ship is sinking like the Naval Ship “Moscow” did the other day. If not it is burning on the open sea and struggling with the damages made. The Russians should consider for a moment that their actions creates a reaction. However, the imperial powers thinks they can act and it will not have any sort of reaction. This is not new, by Russians or Americans who cause havoc and hurt. While thinking it doesn’t carry any costs or ramifications. Nevertheless, it does and the neighbours does what they see fit.

In Europe and the neighbours of Russia should consider their stances and what sort of alliances they want to have. For their own safety and the values of their states. Some might consider close ties to Moscow and others wants to distance themselves. That is all natural and how things evolves. Now, the Russians have to live with it and warning others isn’t the way to go.

Kremlin can warn everyone… but it doesn’t help their cause. Only weakens it, because they cannot bully everyone into submission. Everyone isn’t Putin’s bitch like Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko. Minsk will answer every call and memo from Russia. That’s for one simple reason, the Belorussian President wouldn’t stay in power without help from Moscow. He knows that and the world does too. It is sad, but someone has to be the side-piece of an imperial power. It just happens to be Lukashenko and we know Putin wants more puppets in office.

That’s why the Russians are bitter and coming with warnings. Their power and intimidations aren’t helping. The Kremlin might think this is a power-play, but it is not. It is a pity-party and a sausage-fest. This is a kitty funeral and an honourable priest will not make a farewell-ceremony for that. However, Putin is asking for that… and think the world will cry out loud for his dead cat. Peace.

Money and Madness!

In a day where we saw the monster of money winning its second title at Ethiad Stadium. It’s more stories of money and power brewing in the world. We have Dr. Dre and Jimmy Lovine’s company of Beat Elecontrics apparently sold to Apple Inc for a blistering 3,2 billion dollars and making the mighty doctor the first Hip Hop billionaire! Somewhere is Jay Z and Diddy (Puff Daddy aka P.Diddy aka Sean Combs) crying or wondering why they didn’t start selling lavish headphones.

I could have discussed the matters of Fiancial Fair Play of UEFA and their so called fine on Manchester City. In that same matter I could been discussing the issues of Sepp Blatter asking or nodding his head towards the headboard and complying for a new term as leader of the governing football establishment FIFA. No, I am not talking about either. The fall of United and Moyes ousting is not worth mention, though the proposed new signings and use of money will make the Glazers a bit unhappy in New York. At the same time not discussing the power of Roman in Chelsea where Diego Costa supposed to be at next season.

No I will talk about something which isn’t about money madness of the Premier League or Champions League, even if one of that competitions is over, the other one has yet a final to be held the 24th of May at Lisbon. But, still I can tell that is not where my mind is. Not even the flabbergasting last night show called Eurovision. Where the Hungary should have won since that was the best song in my opinion… However, the theme of the song wasn’t really Eurovision like, which was more the San Marino, UK or Swedes. Secondly after reading both national and international press – seems like the Poles and their breast got votes from drunk European men on the continent. Even though the national Eurovision councils and voting agents gave points to the half-man half-woman, That made the half and half a winner, though the rise of the phoenix (by some reports in the international press: the penis) would get the nod of and actually win in the shin ding in Copenhagen. Russia and Ukraine showed their true hearts to each other, then the usual 8, 10 or 12 points to each other.

It’s here the money and madness will be discussed. Referendum votes in the regions of Luhansk and Donetsk regions happen today, and those who voted, is reported to vote for separation from Kiev and the Ukraine state. Something that isn’t surprising for anybody. Vladimir Putin has just recently been in the new region of Crimea. Which for a few months ago was a piece of the federation of Ukraine and had a military and navy base rented to Russia so they had a well, and Ice free navy base, because the ones on the Kola Peninsula isn’t open for a few months of the year. So they need that to have a secure one all year around. Putin just secured the needed base and now own the area. No matter what Europe does or thinks. It’s doesn’t hit him, because well, the sanctions they have showed to the Russian leaders is scrap metal and dozen loads of waste of time and orders.

When Europe is still in the verge of economic recovery and need the big spenders of oligarch money. London and the City would be hurting like a baby who lost their lollipop and then the baby would cry. The Russian gas and money is so needed. Like Manchester City would be lost in the wildness without the Dubai Oil money.

The way it looks like for me. EU and USA is having their hands tied. They have the powers in their hands, but their washing their hands and at the same time trying to make their hands dirty. That is wretched tale that the beard of the recent winner of Eurovision wouldn’t even cut off.

We are here in situation where Russia and Putin has the upper hand and is carving up new territory for the federation. In Ukraine is there it has been mighty and important battles for Russia. It’s a saying: When Kiev sneezes Moscow get a cough. So after the fall of Yanukovych the friend and former president of Ukraine who himself ran to Putin’s Russia. It’s the actions of the former government and the fall of the weak institutions of Ukraine that is unleashing the opportunities of the separatist in Luhansk and Donetsk. These elections are not legally correct after the 92 constitution of Ukraine. So even if the turnout is massive and by expected reports are all for the mighty mother Russia. My bad it’s for independence from the Nazis of Kiev and the democratic European loving rebels of Ukraine. Which is the bad seed if you listening to the rhetoric of the Russian media and master Putin.

We all know there are other actors and other carrots at stake. The dancing Slavic poles from yesterday even know that. Ukraine and the main in the hamster-wheel know that. The interim government in Kiev knows that Moscow knows this. Even if them all is saying something else. And nobody is telling anybody what the else is. We all know that this is for the long term and securing ruling and master of their own backyard. Putin is having the upper hand. Ukraine has the weak but halting support from the rest of the world. Sadly like Goodluck Johnatan has from the rest of the world in finding the 200 missing schoolgirls who is nowhere to be found so USA and UK are sending hostage specialist to help the Nigerians and their effort to find them. Also the rumors of sending them over to the border to Cameroon and sell them. Sounds just like what a group of men who bombs public areas all over Nigeria could do.

The same helplessness must the interim government of Ukraine feel. They haven’t a single shot to go with full force against Russia. It will be run so hard over that the roadrunner would smack their ass before the first bullet gets to say “hello”.

While Putin and Russia can play cool and see the pawns move. Piece by piece getting all bicycles and town of certain parts of Ukraine, if not the whole thing – why not? He has already had one slice, why not the whole pizza and that to go? Please!

So what is next? The money and the madness is already action. The kings has set up shop and playing their pawns. The next move will be interesting but if he is not swallowing the areas of Luhansk and Donetsk. They can either become annexed like Crimea or they will have the stories of the Abkazia(Georgia), Transnistrina(Moldavia) and the Nagoro-Karabhk(Azerbaijan) republics.

What do you think, will the EU and USA really react like grown men or crybabies to the actions of Russia? Will Russia take more territories in their backyard, since they haven’t really paid much for Crimea? What is the next move from either party now that Manchester City, the Poles have washed cloths on stage and Putin has taken a ride in the new Russian territory? Will Obama have another fascinating anecdote in a speech about the rich Russian culture or will he send a transformers -car to Moscow?

Peace!
