Posted on 07/02/2014 1:02:55 AM PDT by tcrlaf
Germany's Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is hoping to establish a new ceasefire between Kyiv and pro-Moscow rebels in eastern Ukraine, as he hosts Ukrainian, Russian, and French diplomats in Berlin on Wednesday.
A German Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, and French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius had been invited to the afternoon meeting. Lavrov reportedly welcomed the initiative.

Very interesting development tcrlaf....
Also word is now fast becoming known the US Gov. has blacked out the truth of what’s going on in Ukraine.....John Bachelor’s show was interesting about this very thing.
We’ve been saying all along that the US Gov. and MSM has not only has kept the truth from American citizens on Ukraine’s atrocities commited by Kiev.....but they’ve outright lied and mocked the events happening there.
Most recently the state department was asked about the thousands of refuges leaving Eastern Ukraine.....the State Department said....”They’re not refuges, they’re visiting their grandparents”....and the deny that thousands have left despite reports from UN’S numbers this is so.
All Nations are now opposed to Poroshenko’s esculation of shelling and stopping the ceasefire as well as the USA supporting fully Porshenko’s decisions.
Best news I’ve heard is Nation Leaders are becoming convinced this is the US attempting to force Putin to come into Ukraine with the idea of forcing a war between Russia and the US..... Thus Nato/US troops can not only enter Ukraine but Crimea as well in order to secure the nation for the plans the US has for Ukraine.
Because!......The EU is beginning to back off from IMF loans and further loans to Ukraine unless the East, South East and Crimea are part of the package.
This meeting is stunning in that the US is not invited.....looks like the EU is figuring out who really is the cause of this whole affair in Ukraine.
Steinmeier seems to be off the reservation as far as the Obama/US Media combined front is concerned.
He reportedly “strongly” urged Poroshenko to not go ahead with a big military op in the Southeast after his election, and again this past weekend.
He is widely talked about as Merkel’s successor, so his opinion matters, and he hasn’t been playing ball much with Kerry’s BS.
Ouch. That's gonna leave a mark.
I hope also the dis-invite included George Soros...
I may be new...but quickly I notice the more statist globalist one is...they tend to blame everything on Russia...and in the end support Obama’s positions on Ukraine
Also, some of the more liberal elements of the GOP were quite nasty towards Germany and Chancellor Merkel. Wonder if this has something to do with it as well?
What about McCain? This is his war.
would you care to sit down with this horses ass Kerry for ANY reason?
And as for that jive punk ass obammy, pathetic poser?
“would you care to sit down with this horses ass Kerry for ANY reason? And as for that jive punk ass obammy, pathetic poser?”
Putin really exposed Obama as the useless paper tiger that he is. It is refreshing to see people that don’t live under our media blackout tell it like it is...
pathetic how you can read a Canadian or British news paper and get the real poop on this administration and punk ass poser in chief.
Yet American media is still enthralled with this punk or are running scared.
“Yet American media is still enthralled with this punk or are running scared.”
Definitely the latter; they have the same bosses as the affirmative action puppet.
“would you care to sit down with this horses ass Kerry for ANY reason?”
My wife and my family know, that ever since Kerry joined sides with Jane Fonda and the other hate America traitors. I should never get into a face to face situation with the traitor Kerry.
“Pathetic how you can read a Canadian or British news paper and get the real poop on this administration and punk ass poser in chief.”
Joe that reality has been going since the Clintoons were raping in the Outhouse and stealing America.
The major news papers in the UK carried front page stories of the Clintoon realities/crimes while our print mediots and ABCNNBCBS ignored what was going on.
Now thanks to the internet, we can read those UK and Canute newspapers for the real story about the rats in charge of America.
Below is the big reason why the Germans and any sane Nato countries don’t want the USA/Obozo/Kerry screwing up the works:
When it comes to Germany’s relationship with Russia, this relationship is very important for German companies as we highlighted in in our July 2012 conversation “The Game of The Century”:
The European Unions seven former communist members outside the common currency will have an average budget shortfall of 2.6 percent of gross domestic product and an average debt load of 44.7 percent of GDP this year, the European Commission estimates. That compares with 3.2 percent and 91.8 percent for the euro region according to Bloomberg. No wonder Germany, frustrated in the West, is increasingly looking more and more to the East.
“Russia is important for German companies. In 2011, there was a 30 per cent increase in trade between Germany and Russia, with a total volume of 75 billion euros. German economic representatives have been talking about the huge potential of the Russian economy for many years, and it is seen as advantageous that Russia is nearly as important for trade as Poland. In 2011, Russia ranked 12th in German exports behind Poland (10th) and before the Czech Republic (13th).” “Russia is Germanys biggest supplier of gas and oil, providing around 40 per cent of its gas and 34 per cent of its oil supply in 2011. With the governments decision to stop producing nuclear energy by 2022, German demand for gas will increase in the short and medium term.” - Source An Alienated Partnership - Vestnik Kazkaza - 7th of July 2012. As we indicated in our conversation “Eastern promises” on the 9th of June: “We think the breakup of the European Union could be triggered by Germany, in similar fashion to the demise of the 15 State-Ruble zone in 1994 which was triggered by Russia, its most powerful member which could lead to a smaller European zone. It has been our thoughts which we previously expressed.”
