Russian President Vladimir Putin called on pro-Moscow separatists in Ukraine to postpone a vote on secession just five days before it was to be held, potentially pulling Ukraine back from the brink of dismemberment.

It was the first sign the Kremlin leader has given that he would not endorse a referendum planned for Sunday by pro-Russian rebels seeking independence for two provinces with 6.5 million people and around a third of Ukraine's industrial output.

Lets hope he can reign in some of these protestors to stop the violence and let calm prevail.

Mr. Putin better start talking to Lavrov, as he is saying something quite different. I respect Mr. Putin for taking the stand and can only see this as helping to clean up the situation and hope that he can work with the new Ukranian government to rebuild their relationship.

I do not like it. I think Putin is losing his nerves. Or maybe he is just being clever. He knows the people will never accept those Nazi thugs in Kiev. So he has nothing to lose by giving lip service. Ukraine is ancient history already. It is those Nazi's fault. As long as they are in power, there will be no peace in Ukraine.

The costs are too high now that his bluff has been called. He knows the Russian terrorists in Eastern Ukraine hold only a few public buildings and a few piles of tires on the roads, and that the referendum stunt is a certain failure. He hopes to cling to Crimea to save face, but the fact is he lost Ukraine, forever, and is unlikely to even hold Crimea in the end.

Lavrov can just say he was drunk again to explain any inconsistencies. But Mr. Putin's past agreements mean nothing to him, so his integrity is seriously in doubt.

I am wondering if the people in Crimea will ask for another referendum when the Ukraine crap is over. Putin and russia have renegged on all the promises including increase in pensions, water, oil and gas and the investment of billions to bring the economy up. Now that would be the coup of the century, especially if Crimea asks russia to remove the rust buckets from the port or charge them double what they were paying Ukraine.

There's no bluff, idiot. There's a tit for tat deal being worked out to bring this civil war to a halt. Moving troops away from the border and delaying the referendum is Putin's side of the deal. Lavrov is the real diplomat here. Kerry is a nothing more than a dancing puppet.

That's the way I read it and I hope to God that it works.

“May 11 is not a referendum,” said Petro Poroshenko, a Ukrainian oligarch, former government minister and leading presidential candidate.“It is a sham aimed at weakening the Ukrainian state and tearing it apart.”

“People are afraid to go out on the streets in conditions of anti-terrorist operations, let alone go to vote.”

Kosovo: A European Narco State
by Tom Burghardt

When Kosovo proclaimed its "independence" in February [2008], the Western media hailed the provocative dismemberment of Serbia, a move that completed the destruction of Yugoslavia by the United States, the European Union and NATO, as an exemplary means to bring "peace and stability" to the region.

If by "peace" one means impunity for rampaging crime syndicates or by "stability," the freedom of action with no questions asked by U.S. and NATO military and intelligence agencies, not to mention economic looting on a grand scale by freewheeling (Western) multinational corporations, then Kosovo has it all!

From its inception, the breakaway Serb province [of Kosovo] has served as a militarized outpost for Western capitalist powers intent on spreading their tentacles East, encircling Russia and penetrating the former spheres of influence of the ex-Soviet Union. As a template for contemporary CIA destabilization operations in Georgia and Ukraine, prospective EU members and NATO "partners," Kosovo should serve as a warning for those foolish enough to believe American clichés about "freedom" or the dubious benefits of "globalization."

From the beginning Putin has been against Kosovo's independence yet when he occupied Crimea he compared it to Kosovo. How can compare Crimea to Kosovo when he doesn't recognize Kosovo's right to be independent or join Albania? What kind of drugs is he using?
