The European Commission has abruptly terminated new trade talks with Ukraine 48 hours after they began. The news came in two tweets from neighborhood commissioner Štefan Füle on Sunday (15 December) morning. […]

Füle met with Serhiy Arbuzov in Brussels on Thursday. At the time, he promised Ukraine extra funds if it signs an EU free trade pact and agreed to launch talks on a new “roadmap” on implementation of the treaty. […]

But the roundtable, also on Friday, turned into a farce when (Ukrainian President Viktor) Yanukovych threatened to prosecute Ukrainian officials who negotiated the terms of the EU pact.

“His [Füle’s] nerves snapped,” an EU diplomat told this website on Monday. “I think he’s realized that the Ukrainians are not serious about the treaty and are just trying to buy time,” the source noted. …

Funding the “Palestinians” is one of the EU’s reasons for being. Every time Israel had a victory before 1979, the EU (back then the EEC) would squawk loudly about how wicked Israel was. They sure can’t stop now, can they . . . ?

What do Ukraine want to join the dictatorship of >Europe ?
Only this morning the EU signed an agreement with the islamist in Turkey to allow free movement of their people.
Without the consultation of the European people.
Being Europeeen I shall vote for an extreme right party just to get rid of the European Union.

The so-called “extreme right parties” don’t want to get rid of the EU; they just want to remake it in their own image. And the way the EU behaves, I suspect that the elites want people to start doing just that.

Odd since no country in Europe had had free trade since before the first world war.

The main Hamas fundraisers are the Scandinavians. They love Muslims.

“and with Ukraine’s Prime Minister going around talking nonsense, like ‘the EU treaty will force Ukraine to legalise gay marriage,’ the balance tilted to the other side,”

Hardly nonsense. The EU court just ruled that Greece would be forced to recognize homosexual civil unions. These people are progressive fascists.

“They were joined by US senator John McCain, who criticised Russia for its threats to bankrupt Ukraine.”

And who the hell told McQueeg he could go there? He’ll likely have a kiss-in with Linda Gayham.

yes, EU seems to continuously back the IslamoNazi and anti-Semitic elements including the so-called “Palestinian authority” ... a tragic course that we know will destroy Europe if it doesn’t go under sooner by importing the same Satanic krap into its own constituent countries...
part of the problem may be the basically unresponsive or uncontrollable bureaucratic EU bureaucracy itself ... seemingly Europe has created its own dictatorship, in effect ... and dictatorships are usually against the Jews and the Church. Dictators seek to put their own power above that of God...and they are therefore naturally hostile to believers as messengers of God’s word. (and yes, I do see the same problem in USA these past several years)

“What do Ukraine want to join the dictatorship of >Europe ?”

Majority of Ukrainians want to join the EU because they are extremely poor. Ukraine is the third poorest country in Europe (just behind Moldova & Kosovo) but with a large population of 46 million people.
