Putin Warns Ukraine for Arming Georgia

with 4 comments

On Sept 19th, I blogged about the possibility of Russia invading Ukraine after Georgia. On Sept, 27th, I blogged about the warning Ukraine had given Russia: don’t encourage separatists. Yesterday, Putin accused Ukraine (and its President, Yuschenko, without naming him) of sending weapons and military personnel to Georgia during its war with Russia:

The outcome of Putin’s talks with Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko on that and other issues signaled an effort by Moscow to increase its leverage over Ukrainian politics amid persistent turmoil in the ex-Soviet republic.Without naming Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko, Putin suggested Thursday he authorized weapons supplies to Georgia before and during Russia’s war there in August. He also alleged that Ukrainian military personnel fought on the Georgian side in the conflict.

  • Russia: 64% pregnancies end in abortion. My personal consideration on this subject is very easy: a country with very bad demographic prospects (about which I blogged here) shouldn’t be worried about being a super-power but just about surviving, something it’s not going to do if they cotinue this path.
  • The Stalinification of Russia. Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Grin  told the Duma that current enforecement was “ineffective” and specfically stated that “Internet and computer games are being used to promote terrorism and hate crimes. The Internet offers instructions on making explosives and blowing up buildings, while popular computer games promote racially motivated violence.” So-called “President” Dmitry Medvedev backed him up, telling Interior Ministry officials in the Kremlin on Tuesday that they must “step up the fight against extremism and ultranationalism.

  1. Ukrainians should sleep with one eye open at night. I would have speculated a move for invasion and “Russification” of Ukraine would take place “sometime in the next ten years.” Now? Maybe even in the next ten months.

    Massive emmigration from Russia, immigration by ethnic Chinese to Siberian and Far Eastern Russia, and 6 out of ten pregnancies ending at an abortion clinic…

    But there sits the autonomous nation of Ukraine, with a number of pro-Russian sympathists and a sizeable minority of Russian-ethnics, and the largest Orthodox church in Ukraine is under the control of Czar Putin’s patriarch… who steadfastly rejects any possibility of the loss of Kiev from his spiritual omophor.

    Oddly, the Russians would do better to eyeball a country that is actually MORE fertile than itself. Ukraine ranks 191 in the world at 1.15 births per woman… Ranking them a few notches lower than Russia (at 177) with 1.3 births per woman.

    But this is old “Commie-think”… The long term does not really matter… and it does not have to be rational. On paper, as long as you can show an increase in numbers, no matter how it occured, your overlords will be happy.

  2. I agree entirely with your comment. Although I think that maybe the invasion happens in the next ten weeks!

    How sad! They are not worrying about their citizens… at all, whatever they say…
