D. Ripper. Though I doubt Chizhov shares his feelings about the communist conspiracy.

At a riveting session Friday before the annual Brussels Forum, the Russian ambassador to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, appalled the audience of international officials and national security specialists by brazenly spouting the Moscow line: Russia was compelled to annex Crimea because Ukraine was in danger of becoming a chaotic “failed state” — as though the audience was unaware how much Russia’s own manipulations helped bring about this very chaos.

… [T]he former president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, [responded:] “I have no respect for Ambassador Chizhov. He reminds me of a character from ‘Dr. Strangelove.’”

    Hell, what’s appalling is that the government in Kiev is trying to take the Ukraine into the failed economic system such as the EU. It was apparent, when I was watching ABC national, that the whole thing was staged, when a masked protestor was clamoring for western freedoms, and to do so by having his country join the EU. Let me get this straight, the US narrative is that Ukrainians are willing to die for freedom and autonomy, in order to join a foreign organization based in Brussels, which has failed in nations such as Cyprus, Greece, Italy and Spain, an organization which is demanding an austerity so severe in those nations that pensions are destroyed, social services are done away with, economic policy is made for the benefit of western bankers. American flack, sorry, State Department Undersecretary Victoria Nuland was caught conspiring to install a handpicked US sponsored stooge, and even she knows the EU isn’t worth a damn, that was made clear with her “Fuck the EU” comment.

    charlie: I agree that the EU isn’t much of a prize lately.
