Signing ceremony of the Association Agreements with Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine
EU leaders sign Association Agreements with the Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova Iurie Leanca, and the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. The political part of the agreement with Ukraine was signed in March.
Arrivals being broadcast now at http://video.consilium.europa.eu/webcast.aspx?ticket=775-980-14612
Of note, Poroshenko’s Ukraine “Ceasefire” is set to expire at the same time as the signing...
Cool. Has Moldova’s average income hit a thousand bucks or not yet?
Would they bring Zimbabwe to EU too?
EU Association Agreement = economic disaster and eternal indebtedness.
Sigh up now! Help prop up the use of a shaky fiat currency. Help stave off the inevitable crash for a while longer...join the sinking ship and start bailing.
Ukraine signs EU deal that sparked months of upheaval
” Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a cooperation agreement with the European Union on Friday, the same deal whose reversal set off a crisis in the nation.
His predecessor’s decision to shun the deal last year and work with Russia instead unleashed deadly strife that led to the ouster of the nation’s President, the loss of Crimea and a pro-Russia separatist rebellion.”
A statement by Vaclac Klaus, the former Czech president, a few days before the overthrow of Yanukovich:
A very prescient essay, in my opinion. Regarding the events yesterday at the EU-meeting note especially point 8:
" It is very irresponsible from the West to nurture the ambitions and illusions of radicals from Western Ukraine that there really is a choice between East and West and that the EU and the US can not only support the Ukraine as an entity in its direction towards the West, but can guarantee it in the long run. Such a clear and firm interest on the side of the West is in reality missing and so is the willingness to carry the costs. The West helped to start a crisis that it in fact does not want and the consequences of which it is not prepared to bear."
2. On one hand, it includes territories in the west that had never belonged to the Russian empire (Transcarpathian region, Galicia and others) and became part of Russia only after WW2, and on the other hand territories that were from the 18th century purely Russian (Crimea, Odessa, the Eastern part of the country), for which the independence of the Ukraine meant the extraction from their original nation.
As a matter of fact, the Russians murdered something like between 2 to 7.2 million Ukrainians during the Holodomor via starvation. They also did their best to wipe out non-Russian ethnicities with the Cheka, such as the German farmer population, and then shipped in their own people thereafter. The idea that Putin and his communist buddies have some kind of a claim over Ukraine against the will of the Ukrainian people is ridiculous. I will also add that every poll conducted over there by both national and international organizations, as well as the official poll results from the election, all show again and again that only a minority, even in the East and South, support annexation by Moscow. Hence the difficulty of the GRU to find local born volunteers, and have to rely on Muslim Chechens and other Non-Ukrainians to provide the manpower for this farce of a "civil war".
This kind of language of Ukraine being a "artificial" entity is the trash of Russia's Communist and racist National Bolshevik groups. They argue that Ukraine is not a "real" country, but is Russian territory already, and the racist ones add that the Ukrainians are not a "real" ethnicity, and therefore Ukraine ought to be conquered and put back under the Kremlin's yoke. Mind you, Russian dissidents tend to refer to the average Putin supporter as "Homo Soveiticus," while acknowledging the better spirit of the Ukrainians.
This is also part of the satanic "Eurasian" project by guys like Alexandr Dugin, one of Putin's stooges who appears on state controlled Russian TV, and who is also an apparent fan of Aleister Crowley and bringing about the End Times:

Putin fans like tcrlaf, and other Ron Paul/Libertarian types don't know who they are propagandizing for. Or if they do know, they do not care.
The European Union is not so great, but the reason why both ethnic Russians, Ukrainians, and people of all stripes, supported it in the first place was because of the anti-corruption laws that the EU offers, and that corruption emanates from the cess-pool of corrupt Moscow that simply refuses to leave its neighbors in peace.
Vaclav Klaus is a honorable man who is not afraid to tell it like it is.
And I am honored to almost been run over by his motorcade a few years ago while in Prague
Klaus’ reflexive Pro-Putinism is not a new phenomena, and it is very likely he is one of Moscow’s many agents that it keeps in its neighboring countries.
From an interview with Petr Cibulka, former Czech politician and anti-communist, commenting on the revelations of Klaus’s association with a Russian GRU agent:
Q: There was a report published in the Czech press that Czech president Vaclav Klaus is frequently in a contact with Russian national Alexander Rebyonok, who lives permanently in the city of Karlovy Vary. Can you tell us something more about Rebyonok?
Cibulka: Vaclav Klaus’s anti-American stand was for some years a big mystery for many people, as he was always criticizing America whenever her politics came into conflict with Moscow.
After the Czech magazine Reflex published this massive article about Klaus’s long-term contacts with Alexander Rebyonok, who is regarded as a so-called “illegal” of Russian military intelligence (GRU), and whose vital records in the Russian Federation cannot be found, I can offer an educated guess about the true source of Vaclav Klaus’s anti-American orientation.”
If Klaus was as pro Russian as the writer suggests, I doubt he would have ever been elected President of a post Soviet Czech Republic, and also being pro-Soviet with a German surname.
Wonder if these same sentiments are being directed at Nigel Farage?
No, Russia is no choir boy, but, surrendering sovereignty to the EU is no answer to alleged Russian hegemony
I recommend reading stuff from former KGB defectors or Russian dissidents. Moscow operates under the principle of subversion and provocation, even using "anti-Russian" groups by founding their very own, and having their agents aiding Russian policy even under the banner of a anti-Communist party. It is as old as Lenin, with groups like the Monarchists Union being created by the Communist Party to attract real dissidents (for later murder) and aid communist policy. Klaus' sentiments on the Ukrainian situation and his reflexive criticism of the U.S. whenever it aids Russian interests, and his contacts with Russian GRU agents, give enough red flags that if one is familiar with Russia's methods of infiltration, it has a familiar sound.
You should also check Trevor Loudon's blog to read up on these same types of connections even our own politicians have, either of being members of communist/KGB front groups in the past, or else having deep connections with people who do.
