It's like John McCain said, Russia is nothing but a Gas Station. They can't produce enough food to support their country. They depend on other countries for practically everything. These protesters have been set up by Putins propaganda. Russia don't need the EU? B S.

EU will have to be terminated.
Why did EU push Ukraine to join, which gives rise to all these troubles of US making in doing a crisis in the first place?
With no EU, then there won't be such messes.

WHAT IS IT FOR TO CREATE EU ?
EU meddles and troubles sovereignty of countries
EUROPE DOES NOT NEED EU TO HAVE TRADES.
Since Most countries after WW2 HAVE ECONOMIC GROWTHS, Poland and others have economic growths is not because as Nazi-west UKRAINE THINKS SO.

Most countries on the planet HAVING BETTER GROWTHS ARE NOT EU COUNTRIES.

EU, thus , needs to be dumped away for good.

Plainandsimpl, Russia's economy is actually worth something, even if its only gas. America is over 15 trillion in debt and has lost most of its manufacturing in the last 20 years. Russia and the USA have many interests in common, and should be friends. Russia was your ally in two world wars and before that had cordal relations with the USA.

Just one little thing dumb Putinko has miscalculated.
Russia may say bye bye to any foreign investment.
In the long run, Russia will lose.
Much less trust in Russia means less investment by foreigners.

Yes, Russia's economy was just slightly larger than ITALY's, but now that Dwarf Fuhrer Putin has ruined it, it has shrunk below Italy.

Russia's economy is only "hot air", not gas, and your desperate attempts to claim its tiny size is somehow superior to the US with an economy NINE TIMES THE SIZE OF RUSSIA'S only shows how witlessly desperate you Putin lackeys are getting!

It's a GOOD SIGN!

Emerging economies such as El Salvador, BRAZIL, CHINA, India AND RUSSIA have larger growths than that of US while US has suffered contraction some 6 years ago.

US is no longer the focus of the new world's economic growths and markets.

US has dropped about 29% in composition of global economies from the past.

In other words, US is not powerful in economics and grabbing of world markets surface by Russia as well, especially to Russia while world wants Russian markets as they are very lucrative.

With no and less investments for US but many other investments from around the world and mutually by Russians to rest of world, US will be deprived of beneficial economics but becomes worsening.

US has proven as a military loser,from Iraq, Vietnam, North Korea ,
Afghanistan.

US taking ion communism North Korea is not the new world direction, which sows as a backward degrading nation, because any business is a worthy business that North Korea has a lot of business for people of world to make benefits.

The emerging world sees US has less worldwide economic benefits by being against the world.

US taking on communism North Korea is not the new world direction, which shows US increasingly lacking business, because any business is a worthy business that North Korea has a lot of business for people of world to make benefits but not US as well besides Russia and other nations.

The emerging world sees US has less worldwide economic benefits by being against the world.

Russia sided with us during the Revolution and also sided with the North during the Civil War. Russia has been there for us countless times throughout our history. I don't know how often we've been there for them though, so I'm not too surprised we aren't friends.

They've been bankrupt before, remember? I'm sure they do. But it won't get that bad this time.

Thank God that Russia is keeping Russians and others, like those in the Ukraine from being exploited by the wonderful west who only cares about itself and gaining more wealth. The wonderful west neither understands eastern europe nor cares about them, except in what they can gain, from being able to manipulate those countries into whatever it wants, especially in attempts to steal the learned and talented people for itself and natural resources which do not belong to them.

But the majority of ethnic Ukrainians feel they would be better off with closer ties to the West and not Moscow. For the majority of Ukraine's existence it has had closer ties with Russia than the West......yet has nothing to show for it.

So why is it so wrong for the majority of Ukraine's population (ethnic Ukrainians) to want to give a relationship with the West a chance?

Ethnic Russians in Eastern Ukraine don't seem like good citizens of Ukraine when they put loyalty to their ethnic background FIRST and loyalty to the country they live in.....Ukraine SECOND. That's why they went to Ukrainian local government buildings and RIPPED DOWN the Ukrainian flag and put up the flag of their ethnic background....RUSSIA. My God......what terrible citizens they are to show loyalty FIRST to another nation instead of the nation they live in Ukraine.

As an American......if I saw a group of people storm a government building hear in the US and RIP DOWN the American flag and put up the Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, Israeli, Russian, Mexican, French, Puerto Rican, etc flag.......I would think they are horrible American citizens and should be DEPORTED to the nation that represents the flag they love so much.

You keep on posting the same message on different threads; this is spamming!

Why are you against Russians showing their allegiance to their country?

People in East Ukraine ARE Russian in their majority.

It's only an arbitrary administrative decision at the end of the Soviet Union that make them being in Ukraine.
