Who is Petro Poroshenko?

Posted June 16th, 2014 at 09:35 AM by Magnate

On 29 May, the Central Election Commission of Ukraine announced that Petro Poroshenko had won the 25 May presidential election, with 54.7% of the votes.

Many people have not heard anything about him untill he became the 5'th president of Ukraine. So who is he? Does he have any political experience?

Poroshenko served as the Minister of Foreign Affairs from 2009 to 2010, and as the Minister of Trade and Economic Development in 2012. From 2007 until 2012, he headed the Council...

Law of the jungle? or a more united world?

Posted March 24th, 2014 at 11:22 AM by Magnate

In my country Sweden the politicians are talking about larger military budget, and a recent poll showed that 24% are ready to take up arms if necessary against intruders.

2 months ago there would be nothing of this talk and if anyone even talked about a larger military budget he would be laughed at.

Russia invaded Crimea and executed a silent and smooth annexation of Crimea (then part of Ukraine now part of Russia). Russia broke several international laws & agreements...

Time for the Russian federation to split up?

Posted March 12th, 2014 at 03:12 PM by Magnate

The russian goverment stated that Crimea should belong to them because the majority of the people are ethnic russians.

The Russian Federation is divided into 83 federal subjects, 21 of which are republics. In many of them the russians are in minority. Maybe it's time for them to break apart from Russia?

The Chechen Republic is already rebelling, and been doing so for a while. 1.9% are ethnic russians in the Chechen republic.

Russia pays the price: Isolation

Posted March 4th, 2014 at 06:35 AM by Magnate

We all know what happend. Russia transporting soldiers to Crimea, trying to dismantle ukrainian troops and supports a pro-russian separatist movement in Crimea.

Seems it all backfired at Russia. Putin even ready to negotiate with Nato. The russian ruble faling like a coin from a churchtower and so far Russia lost over 100$ billion dollar since monday.

Pissing the whole west of with his 18'th century rethoric claiming he is protecting the interests of the russian people...

It's time for Ukraine to step up

Posted March 1st, 2014 at 08:08 AM by Magnate

Obamas speech was a joke, he just said it would cost Russia to intervene in Ukraines internal conflict. It seems Russia is planing to strike, since Putin asked the upper house of parliament to approve sending armed forces to the Ukrainian territory, and it was approved. Putin even sent the russian criminal mc-gang "the night wolfs" to Crimea to start a grey war since they are not associated with the state they can cause chaos without having anyone to blame then the mc gang.
