FOREIGN PRESS ON POROSHENKO
According to Western observers, Peter Poroenku with his knowledge of English helped in dialogue with world leaders. The circumstances of the signing of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and EU and the historical parallels with the first world war - overview of the foreign press on June 28.
POROSHENKO AND RUSSIA
The probability of zaprovadennâ sanctions against Russia increased after President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko accused Russia in promoting separatists, who are waging a war in the east of the country, wrote the British Guardian.
"Freely communicating in English Poroshenko expressly/straightly stated in Brussels that the militants are directly controlled by Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin. He said that Russia manages these illegal groups: we are talking about Russian citizens, Russian officers, Russian mercenaries. Poroshenko described the strategy of the Kremlin in Ukraine as not very pragmatic and very emotional"- quoted by Guardian.
The newspaper writes that Poroshenko discussed his plan for peace with the leaders of the EU and got their approval and full support.
"The Council of the European Union on Monday will decide whether to take targeted action against the Russian Federation, including sanctions against the Russian economy, although the EU is not unanimous on how far should these sanctions go/reach," the newspaper said.
Meanwhile, the situation in the territories controlled by pro-Russian militias, is deteriorating.
"There are banks not paid pension. There is no water and electricity. Mass of armed men there in the streets. Peaceful people are afraid to leave the house. Conversely, 87 percent of the territory controlled by the Kyiv is a normal life, peace and order" - quoted by Mr. Poroshenko Guardian.
MADE A PROMISE
Signing the association agreement with the EU, President, Petro Poroshenko fulfilled an election promise, writes the New York Times.
The newspaper notes that the refusal of association with the EU cost the former office of President Viktor Yanukovych. Now, the Poroshenko is a new task - to reach a settlement on the east.
"Russia denies its role in the standoff, but the militants get weapons, funding and volunteers from Russia. United States and Europe have repeatedly urged President Vladimir Putin to stop this flow. However, Putin is unlikely to do so. Russia has expressed its disagreement with the signing of a trade agreement with Ukraine Brussels. Last week, the Kremlin warned that the deal would force Moscow to suspend preferential tariffs for Ukrainian goods. There are fears that Moscow will continue to exacerbation of confrontations in the East"- the newspaper.
The signing of the association agreement has become symbolic of a political victory, which congratulated on independence square in Kiev. Within months, the demonstrators demanded that the authorities of this step. However, given the opposition to the East, integration and Europe will not so fast, adds the newspaper.
The EU gave Russia time until Monday to begin settlement of the situation in the East of Ukraine. Otherwise, there will be sanctions," wrote Polish by Rzeczpospolita.
The Ukrainian President arrived in Brussels to sign the historic document-the association agreement with the European Union. Both Georgia and Moldova, Ukraine wants to gain access to the European market and to reform its economy according to the standards of the EU.
However, as the newspaper, condition of stability in Ukraine is giving Russia policy disruption.
"On Friday, the EU leaders gave Russia an ultimatum. Until Monday, Moscow has time to elect to sepereatistìv to get them to stop military actions, to convey Ukraine three points passes on the Russian border, to release all hostages, including observers of the OSCE, to accept the verifìkacìjnij mechanism under the auspices of the OSCE, which would effectively kontrolûvti the cease-fire and resume control of the borders, as well as the beginning of negotiations on the implementation of the peace plan, Petro Poroshenko, "-wrote Polish newspaper.
In addition, the newspaper noted the tremendous precedent that had place during the EU Summit.
"Poroshenko sat next to the leaders of the EU and actually they dictated the conditions to be met by Russia and the separatists, whom she [Russia] supports, that would allow cessation of hostilities" - writes Rzeczpospolita.
THE LESSONS OF WAR
On this day 100 years ago in Sarajevo, there were gunshots, echoes of which are heard around the world, writes British Telegraph about encroaching upon the Austro-Hungarian Archduke Ferdinand.
Immediately after the assassination attempt, no one expected that he will end apocalyptic war. Despite the odds of a political solution to the conflict, the country began to declare war on each other. The civilization began to crumble like a deck of cards.
"The anniversary of the assassination attempt is the opportunity to remember those who gave their lives for their country. It is also an opportunity to realize how fragile peace can be. In 1914, major European countries realized that in international relations is not all right. However, they were not prepared for the potential aggravation and to the dire consequences that it can bring"- the newspaper.
However, with the passage of time, nothing changes. Humanity does not make conclusions from the mistakes of the past.
"Today, in a world of many tensions that could escalate into a global conflict. Civil war continues in Syria. Sunnìti-fundamentalists threatening to split Iraq. Russia threatens Ukraine's independence. It is feared that under Russian threat might be the Baltic States that are members of NATO. Be aware of these nebezepeki and be prepared for them from the military point of view-not just a sign of bravado. This is a sign of realism. That's why our newspaper appropriate stresses that Britain should have the highest capabilities. We must be able to act in situations, the consequences of which are sometimes difficult to predict," the Telegraph concludes.
EU dictating conditions Russia must meet. EU dependent on Russian gas. EU with military that couldn’t take on Libya without American forces. Russia has had historic ties with Eastern Ukraine for centuries. Russia especially hates Nazism. Everybody misses the cold war money train. NATO relentlessly expanding to the east.
Obama is our leader.
Yeah. . This is gonna end well.
What I find scary is so many folks pushing Ukraine into EU...
Same EU with some of its nations at 25% unemployment.... running out of money to fund EU mandated government funded programs....dependent on Russia for energy...and some (wiser) EU nations pushing to get out
