Ukraine was not Invited to NATO Summit

Ukraine’s foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba doesn’t understand why Ukraine wasn’t invited to the NATO Summit scheduled for next month. What kind of ZRADA is this?

Dmytro Kuleba

Ukrayins’ka Pravda quotes Kuleba:

We understand the desire of the allies to meet in secret on the Summit to discuss transatlantic unity… However, we totally do not understand how it is possible to conduct closed summit of NATO while Russia is behaving aggressively against Ukraine in the Black Sea region, and against members of the alliance. I have in mind the recent results of investigation in the Czech Republic. This we cannot understand, how can you not invite Ukraine, why isn’t there a place for Ukraine in this summit?

Kuleba is thankful for the policy of open doors declared on the summit in 2008.

However, 13 years have passed since that summit. When we in Ukraine are blamed for the slow pace of reforms, what then can we say about the implementation of the decision of the Alliance, which are catching dust? It is very important for Ukraine that the policy of open doors does not become feeding us promises.

😭😭😭

Earlier this year, in January, Zelensky said in an interview broadcast on HBO:

If Ukraine was in NATO, there wouldn’t be escalation in the Donbas.

That means, we would have the obligation to defend you?

Yes that is so because today we are defending Europe. We are thankful to Europe for her policy of sanctions. We are thankful to United States. But you cannot return people’s lives through sanctions.

You must understand that today it is Ukraine. But who is next? This is a provocation. Tomorrow it could be any European country or the United States. We are not just talking military matters. We are dealing with an information war…

Sneaky fucker that Zelensky…

Ukraine Will Not Become a Member of the EU or NATO any Time Soon

Despite the wish of Ukraine to become a member of the EU and NATO being enshrined in the country’s constitution, the fulfillment of this wish may be further than some may hope…

It is unfortunate for the Svidomites, but 7 years after the signing of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, Ukraine is still not a candidate for membership. At the recent visit of US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken to Kiev it became apparent the US gave a cold shoulder to Ukraine’s NATO aspirations. Rumor has it, Victoria Nuland told Zelensky to cool it with his NATO aspirations. Ukraine gets the same reaction from the EU. The Ukrainian officials demand fruitlessly guarantees by the EU that Ukraine will one day become a member of the EU and the EU does not give any such guarantees.

I may have mentioned it before on this blog but Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia are not targets of the EU expansion. Ukraine’s, Moldova’s, and Georgia’s situation is however further compounded by territorial disputes. It is clear that these disputes prevent the assertion to NATO for these countries but little less obvious is that these disputes prevent Ukraine from joining the EU as well.

And while, Transnistria does not have an armed conflict, and Abkhazia, and South Ossetia are quiet too, we hear almost every month about casualties in the Donbas. Donbas has a small intensity war. And while the other frozen conflicts can be mediated through the UN before the country ascends to the EU, see the case of Cyprus, the conflict in the Donbas would first have to calm down if Ukraine is to ever seriously consider an EU ascension.

Ukraine has a wretched economy. It is literally the extreme East of Europe and it closed its door to Eurasia. This does not bode well for any economic development. It is said Ukraine will reach economic parity with Poland in 40 years. Ukraine even lags behind any of the current candidates for EU membership. Economically, the Russian Federation has more chance of becoming a member of the EU than Ukraine.

Also consider that the Kiev regime is unwilling to fulfill its obligations under the Minsk Agreements. The current strategy of Kiev is to get the US, UK and Canada on board of the Minsk group. The continental guarantors of the treaties, that is Russia, France, and Germany would hardly find a common ground on this, and quite frankly affairs here on the continent should be delegated to continental powers.

The internal conflict, the bad economic configuration, the unwillingness of Kiev to resolve the conflict in Donbas, and the expansion plans of the EU, all postpone the Ukrainian ascension to the EU by many decades. The EU may even disintegrate before Ukraine even manages to become a candidate for membership, Ukraine may disintegrate too. The Ukrainian politicians should stop using the EU and NATO as their ideological mantra because the goals are improbable.

These Shitheads Still Believe That Ukraine Will Have Some Influence Over Russia?

Browsing Twitter for mentions of my website I encountered this…

I thought the Western commentariat is now over such comments. It ain’t 2014 now and 6 years have passed to assess Ukraine’s success. These people must have their head so up the ass they do not see how good their post-Maidan Ukraine has faired.

  1. Ukraine is competing with Moldova for the title of the most impoverished country in Europe. Good luck getting anyone in Russia to want the same.
  2. Repression against the Russian cultural element by the government are rife making the country repulsive to any true Russian out there. Do you honestly think that a country that bans the Russian language would have any influence over Russia?
  3. Political opponents of the current regime are being literally killed. Oles’ Buzyna, an author, who advocated good relationship with Russia was killed outside his home by Neonazis one day after his address was leaked by Myrotvorets, a database run by the Ukrainian Secret Service.
  4. Neonazis, who are under control of the Ministry of Interior attack political opponents of the government, who are allegedly (according to fabricated evidence) pro-Russian.
  5. Nazi collaborators are being given monuments throughout Ukraine, as documented by Eduard Dolinsky. I understand that in the West, the propaganda tells us Neonazis in Ukraine are a fiction but the Russians are not exposed to such obscurantism.
  6. Ukraine has been part of several provocations against Russia, for instance they downed the MH17 (yes, I believe they did) plane to frame Russia. You honestly think such a gangster state that killed 300 people to frame rebels in Eastern Ukraine that are fighting against a regime that glorifies Nazis would inspire anyone in Russia?
  7. Also, statements about successful Ukraine having influence on Russia are never made by Ukrainian nationalists, who do not want Ukraine to be some kind of alter-Russia.

Honestly, the Russians ought make a quick process of anyone, who wants this kind of democratization in their home country. It is not even clear to me why Russia is deemed less democratic than Ukraine?

NATO Cargo Cult Discovered in Kiev

A friend of mine visited Kiev and discovered an example of a cargo cult. The latter is when aboriginals in peripheral countries build totems and displays to attract the help of a more advanced civilisation. I am living in a NATO country, and I have not seen any such displays…

Note the underground walkway. The tiles look like they haven’t seen a repair since comrade Brezhnev, and I bet it stinks like piss in there. That does not prevent the local government from commemorating the 70 years of NATO.
