As well as three months earlier Ukraine faces crucial need of foreign financial assistance. But in December it was about Russian or the IMF’s funds and now for Ukraine it is about to stand its ground against Russian occupation with or without foreign financial assistance.
While the European Union calls on all partners of Ukraine to give it the financial aid through the mechanisms of cooperation with the IMF, the Russian Federation expressed non-co-operation and froze the second tranche of loan to Ukraine according to the agreement of financial assistance provision signed by the government of Ukraine in December 2013. The Russian Federation even discusses the issue of announcing a default on debt obligations of Ukraine. Besides, the government of Russia does not exclude the possibility to overview the price of natural gas for Ukraine in the direction of its growth, in case of new government of Ukraine will choose the European direction.
Delaying in the provision of financial aid to Ukraine, which is oriented to laying of reforms and stabilization of the situation, threatens the security of Europe and will lead to another defeat of U.S. policy.
Further delaying in the provision of financial support to Ukraine, especially on the part of the IMF, and the lack of compelling stand of the Western World on destructive policy of the Kremlin concerning the choice of the Ukrainian people to live in a democratic and non-corrupted state will reliably lead to another geopolitical victory of Putin.
Putin’s initiation of military action with the silent consent of other strategic partners and security guarantors of Ukraine may flow out into a bloody echo throughout Europe. Everyone will become engulfed in hostilities including Frau Merkel and gentlemen Bildt and Hollande. Are they ready to the situation that Moscow will not stop on Ukraine? Russian Empire is from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean, or what did the ideological mouthpiece of the Kremlin Mr Zhirinovsky say?
What do you think, dear Mr President of the United States? Who are you to enter into a world history: the first black president of America? A little-known politician in the times of the Great Vladimir of Moscow? A loser who could not stop another fratricidal war? Or finally a peacemaker who has kept the world from another disaster that could be the most ambitious since the Second World War. Time to think has run out.
