"Ukraine is not even a state"

It appears now that Putin was not necessarily on his best behavior during the NATO summit, threatening to split Ukraine in two should that country join the alliance.

"'Do you understand, George, that Ukraine is not even a state!' Putin told U.S. President George W. Bush at the closed meeting, the diplomat told Kommersant. After saying most of Ukraine's territory was 'given away' by Russia."

While Igor (our in-house mad genius) correctly notes, "We knew this all along," someone really needs to tell the Ukrainians about this. The poor souls are under the impression they have a country.

Thanks to James as well for the heads-up.
