Skip to comments.Russian minister's advice to US over Crimea: do yoga and chill out
Posted on 04/03/2014 10:47:10 AM PDT by goldstategop
A top Russian official has accused the US of "childish tantrums" in its response to the annexation of Crimea, and suggested that American politicians practise yoga and watch sitcoms to help chill out.
"Clearly, the US leadership is really annoyed, and cannot come to terms with the new situation, which has arisen in large part due to the deliberate line taken by the US and its allies in Europe to prepare anti-Russian forces to take power in Ukraine," said deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, in an interview with Interfax.
"Trying to demonstrate how unhappy it is with the exercise of free will by the population of Crimea and the decisions we took related to it, Washington is ruining contacts even in places where continuing dialogue is in their own interests.

The Russians are improving in the use of slang. What a hoot!
They should tell 0bama to reset hisself.
Chill out... as in getting ready to serve revenge cold? Check.
Power has to have a heart or in the long term it goes down to hell. This is why the humongous charade to make it look like all Crimea asked to be part of Russia.
A blast listening to this:
“The situation is turning into a joke when, for example, meetings between meteorologists are cancelled,” said Ryabkov.
“What can we advise our American colleagues? They should get more fresh air, do yoga, eat healthily, maybe watch some sitcoms on television.
“This is better than getting themselves and others all worked up when they know very well that the train has already departed and that childish tantrums, tears and hysterics will not help things.”
They’re laughing at us. This is what Zero has brought the United States to. This is a “reset” alright.
Chill out, it’s just a small piece of territory. And the rest of them are Nazis, anyway.
They are indeed laughing at us. They loathe weakness, even in adversaries.
He probably should have taken things more seriously.
Could they be goading the US into doing something stupid or encouraging Ukraine or its thugs to do something stupid and then they'll be justified to take a corridor in eastern Ukraine to connect Crimea to Russia?
Yoga and chill out.
What Putin really said to mac daddy was: “ Pink bra and Pink Panties and visit your favorite bath house”.
This shows you exactly how seriously they - and the rest of the world - take us now.
Obama has reduced the US to a laughing stock. We are perceived worldwide now as being powerless, concerned only with the bizarre combination of homosexual and Muslim “issues,” and consciously weakening ourselves economically to the point that we will be about at the level of South Africa (if even that good) before too long.
Yoga is easier in those loose mommy jeans...
It is wise to examine this tactic and consider it among all the others.
It is also wise to consider the exact opposite situation, that Obama is tactically trying to goad Russia (Putin) into doing something stupid so the world will see Obama's actions as justified.
The US and EU fund and arm Christian slaughtering Al Qaeda foreign mercenaries to overthrow the legitimate government of Syria. Is it such a stretch to believe that the US and EU would instigate the overthrow of the legitimate Ukrainian government?
Well, Washington also didn’t cotton to foreign entanglements. The Barbary Pirates got engaged only when they were menacing trade to the new USA.
That said, technology has made the world so small that Russia might as well be at our doorstep. If isolationism made sense at one time, it doesn’t now.
Anti-Russian means not wanting to be assimilated into Russia. I guess that’s some big crime.
Sorry, B.S. don’t fly in Moscow.
You mean the “legitimate government of Syria” that does the same things and is funded by Iran and Russia among others?
I think everyone agrees that what the USA and EU are doing by backing al-Qa’eda is an exercise in madness. The so-called “legitimate government”, though, is the same one that funds Hezbollah and illegitimately demands the Golan Heights from Israel among other things. Ain’t that funny?
Imagine the Russian reaction to their own advice to chill out and do yoga after a NATO invasion and seizure of Kaliningrad (East Prussia).
I wasn’t aware that Ukraine was being assimilated into Russia before the Obama/Soros/sodomite EU staged coup. Now the Ukrainians are going to be assimilated into the NWO whether they like it or not. People in the EU go to jail if they just speak out against assimilation into the NWO.
There's your problem.
They’re being bullies.
Obama is a bully, kind of. But one without the cajones of the Bear. Hubris, meet nemesis.
I’d normally grieve over this, but even Putin knows this is a lightweight. He hasn’t knocked over America’s best, far from it.
“Coup” of what, political leaning?
Was Ukraine ever declaring war on Russia? No.
Just because we don’t like how a particular government acts doesn’t mean its not legitimate. For example, our government funds Christian slaughtering Al Qaeda mercenaries to attack countries and overthrow governments that are no threat to the us people yet it is still our legitimate government.
I guess Russia has its share of adolescents in charge, too.
Yanukovych ditched his country’s agreement with the EU in favor of reactionary globalist Putin’s plan for a free trade agreement and closer ties.
The bottom line is that Putin and Obama really, really don’t like each other. Or so it seems.
Sorry, B.S. dont fly in Moscow.
Who cares anything about Obama BS in Moscow?
You should be concerned about Obama BS everywhere else, that's where it's working.
Pretty much a safe bet.
You didn't see on TV those Right Sector and Svoboda extremists throwing firebombs at cops until they forced the rump parliament (conveniently half its members, most of which supported the legal government, had fled for their lives) illegally installed a Globalist Bankster puppet regime.
Putin has opened a Pandora’s Box that is going to ultimately end very badly for Russia with long lasting consequences, regardless of what does or does not happen to non-Russians worldwide.
Is Pajama Boy really Aronofsky?
Yet those brave members of Parliament returned to impeach Yanukovych by a vote of 328-0 (half of them mistakenly voting the wrong way, apparently).
Maybe that’s what he thought Obama meant about having “more flexibility”.
I’ve heard that line before. Especially applied to Iran’s ecclesiocracy.
I know what the lefties in DC are doing and I don’t agree with it one whit. Christians are the biggest victims there in Syria; I often suspect that such is the real reason for the current mess occurring there and whether or not Assad, al-Qa’eda and the other alleged combatants are not colluding to that end.
The overthrow was a done deal two days before that when the rump parliament (only 238 of the 450 members were present) "voted" to ban the police or military from taking action against the insurrectionists, leaving the legal government personnel totally defenseless against the firebomb throwing mob. The overthrow was a fait accompli after that.
The non-opposition members who voted to illegally remove the President (it was still only 328 members of the 450 total) were more worried about saving their own necks from the firebomb mob that surrounded the parliament than the future of their country.
Putin is a Globalist????? That is some Alinsky style word games right there.
shelter in place
Obamas foreign policy message to Poland, Taiwan, South Korea ... and Benghazi.
Putin and his possie can mock us all they want. This too shall pass, and in the end Russia will remain a Sh!t hole and continue its 1000 year history of misery. And by that history, his most likely end will be a 9x13 to the head and or a rope hung from a lamp post.
The only question is how many he kills in the process.
