"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Remember that Ukraine is in Europe, that Poland and East Germany were once under the influence of the Russians. This is primarily a European issue rather than an American one, it's your safety and prosperity on the line, not ours.
You better hope the US is in the mood to help you.
The key player to impose any solution to Russia regarding this issue could be Germany.
And I do not see the Germany to be or want to be in the 1st place.
Germany didn't support enough Obama admin. for Syria and I do not see any change regarding Crime's issue.
Envidia te mata !!!
The blind leading the blind !!!
For that reason, the USA must do all the talking and the EU must slip in to the background a bit on this issue. Russia has you by the balls.
Of course Russia couldn't have done this legally, because there was no pretext to bring to the UN.
This isn't just an EU issue, but it does have particularly significant consequences for Europe.
