USA = MUST REMOVE SANCTIONS TO HANG ONTO ANY REMAINING GOODWILL IT HAS IN THE WORLD TODAY!
HOW DID THE UKRAINIAN MASS MURDERS START? VICTORIA NULAND, USA CIA CREATED MOST OF IT!
John Kerry = US lift Russia sanctions = If Minsk agreement implemented = “United States is prepared to consider rolling back sanctions on Russia when the Minsk agreements of September 2014, and now this agreement, are fully implemented.” = 16-Hour Talks = France + Germany + Russia + Ukraine
KERRY + White House = Praised Minsk deal = “potentially significant step”
Restrained Minsk optimism = New Russia sanctions off table
Withdrawal of all foreign troops and equipment from Ukraine
Full restoration of Ukrainian control of the international border
Release of all hostages
State Dept spokeswoman Psaki = US was continuing consultations on possible new sanctions against Russia = “We have not taken … options off the table. Those discussions are ongoing.”
PSAKI = Must not know much about the terms saying = “Certainly our preference would be to see this agreement and components, including a ceasefire, including the pullback of heavy weapons and a complete withdrawal of foreign fighters, implemented.” = CLEARLY SHE IS IN THE DARK!
PSAKI = Threatened that if the Minsk deal is not implemented Russia would be blamed — NOT UKRAINE!
PSAKI = Said Washington may still ship weapons to Ukraine = VIOLATES AGREEMENT. = CLEARLY SHE IS IN THE DARK!
EU LEADERS = Positive impressions of Minsk deal = Expressing hope that peace and stability would soon reign in Ukraine.
Germany’s Merkel tweeted = “Therein lies hope”
France’s Hollande called the deal a “comprehensive political solution” which would engender “serious hope, even if everything is not done.”
Nato’s Secretary General Stoltenberg said, “…a welcome step towards what I hope will be a durable, and peaceful solution to the conflict in Ukraine.
VP of EU Commission Mogherini said = New sanctions against Russia were unlikely at EU summit in Brussels + Will focus on how “all possible EU means” can be activated to help sustain the ceasefire deal.
President Hollande & Chancellor Merkel = KEY TO DEAL = Invested time and effort with Putin and Poroshenko = Reportedly without Washington.
At same time Kerry was visiting Kiev to negotiate NOW IRRELEVANT weapons for Ukraine army = USA claims only “defensive” weapons involved
USA = Alleges a Russian military’s presence in Ukraine = Unsubstantiated claims = Rebuffed repeatedly by Moscow.
Ukrainian experts = Stated they have not observed any Russian military activity or troops during inspection held on Russia’s southern border with Feb 9-12.
