After any “goodbye” inevitably comes a “good day.”
I have long thought about “lot of in common” between Russian and Ukraine. The reality is such that today, after the annexation of Crimea and the aggression in the Donbass, what is left of “in common” is the state border,
2295 kilometers and 400 metres in common. And from the Ukrainian side, Russia ought to return control over this border. Only then can continue searching for commonalities.
The ban on export of oil products, and the distribution of passports to the citizens of occupied territories, the holding of Ukrainians as captives, doesn’t bring closer the settlement of relations between our countries, even by iota, and we cannot call such relations “brotherly.”
Now, from the “common” to “personal.”
Regarding show, which was announced on the Russian federal channel. I want to remind [everyone] that it was acting in TV shows that made me popular in Ukraine, and in the end made me a President of Ukraine. The airing of this show, which was filmed a long time ago, looks weird. I don’t have ambitions to do a political career in Russia.
(If you know the name of the show please write in the comments)
I will briefly cover what happened on 2 May 2014 in Odessa…
Right Sector goons, reinforced by hooligans from Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk burned alive some 50 (at least according to official statistics) anti-fascist protestors in the House of the Unions in Odessa.
This was a complete act of barbarism worthy of countries of Africa. And it justifies Putins’s actions in defending Crimea, and stopping the Ukrainian advance in the Donbass.
That’s all from me folks, if you don’t like my version of events, the comments are free:
Recently, the president elect, Volodymyr Zelensky expressed the desire to grant citizenship to Russians, who suffer under the repression of the Kremlins. The darkest one commented on this…
If in Ukraine they will start giving out passports to Russians, and we in Russia will give citizenship and passports to Ukrainians, sooner or later we will inevitably come towards an expected outcome. All will have a single citizenship. We cannot but welcome that.
Russian president Vladimir Putin signed a decree on Wednesday to allow residents of Moscow-backed rebel-held territories in eastern Ukraine to obtain Russian passports.
The decree — published on the Kremlin website just three days after Ukraine elected a new president in a landslide — allows residents of the two separatist “republics” in Ukraine’s coal-producing Donbass region to apply for Russian passports under a simplified three-month procedure.
Though the move may make lives easier for vulnerable local residents who still face daily artillery bombardments, it is likely to further complicate moribund peace talks between Moscow and Kiev, which president-elect Volodymyr Zelensky has vowed to renew.
