US: Russia has 'days, not weeks' to follow accord

Russia has "days, not weeks" to abide by an international accord aimed at stemming the crisis in Ukraine, the top U.S. diplomat in Kiev warned Monday as Vice President Joe Biden launched a high-profile show of support for the pro-Western Ukrainian government. Russia in turn accused authorities in Kiev of flagrantly violating the pact and declared their actions would not stand.

Biden, the highest-ranking American official to visit Ukraine during its conflict with Russia, planned to meet with government officials in the capital of Kiev on Tuesday. The vice president also planned to announce new technical support to help the fledgling government with energy and economic reforms.

SNIP----

In Moscow, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov rejected charges that Moscow was behind the troubles in eastern Ukraine and failing to live up to the Geneva agreement.

"Before putting forth ultimatums to us, demanding fulfillment of something within two-three days or otherwise be threatened with sanctions, we would urgently call on our American partners to fully recognize responsibility for those whom they brought to power and whom they are trying to shield, closing their eyes to the outrages created by this regime and by the fighters on whom this regime leans," Lavrov told a news conference.

Words and actions by Ukrainian leaders are "absolutely unacceptable," he declared.

Russia wants Right Sektor/Svoboda disarmed, before they disarm the other groups. The US is demanding Russia disarm the pro-Russian groups first.

The two sides are talking right past each other. And the Ukrainians are the victims in the middle.

“OR WHAT ?”

Obama will defriend him on Facebook, and Jarrett will make sure that he gets blacklisted on Tina Brown’s Manhattan media cocktail party list!!!

Or else Kerry will regale Putin with his life story starting with "did you know I served in Vietnam?" and decade upon decade of other fantasies. And if that is not enough he has albums of boudoir photography of Theresa. That right there is enough to make even Putin crumble!

Obama will give him an Amish shunning. On top of that, when Putin has to build a barn, Obama will not come.

“ultimatum”
The VP’s not leaving until you promise to be nice!
And tomorrow he’s putting on a shadow puppet show.

Probably another massively bungled false flag op.

Benghazi II or something.

IMHO, Americans in Ukraine better watch their own six.

Everyone is expendable in the eyes of the bankers.

The bankers want an excuse for war, I can only guess that they’ve tasked their minions with coming up with a plan to get one cookin’.

Billions to be made reconstructing a Ukraine that’s been bombed into oblivion.

And how would either of those things be perceived as other than a plus by Putin?

After the way Right Sector/Svoboda brutally attacked and murdered Russian speakers in the East, Moscow is going to step up its assistance to them.

The US seems oblivious to the real nature of the situation and from Russia’s viewpoint, the Geneva Agreement is not being implemented. Naturally, Russia will keep its pledge to those being affected.

Whether Washington likes it or not.

Unlike the bust of Churchill, Obama is really attached to his bust of Lenin and complete collection of speeches.

Putin has complete KGB dossiers on Obama, Biden, Kerry, Hagel, Jarret, and Reid.

It ain’t even fair.

You really think the Russians are the victims in all this?

You're joking, right?
