Russian-Ukrainian relations deteriorate


So, outside of the language wars (see previous post), Russia and Ukraine continue to not agree on most other issues.

According to the Washington Post today, Russia is intensifying pressure against Ukraine. Recent examples?

- Russia has accused Ukraine of sending troops to Georgia last year to kill Russian soldiers
- Russia claims Ukraine has been disrupting the operations of the Russian fleet in the Ukrainian port of Sevastopol
- and Medvezhonok issued a letter last month that denounced Yushchenko (at least the letter wasn't covered in dioxin)

Meanwhile on September 10, the Ukrainian intelligentsia issued an open letter asking for protection Russia. Interesting point, the letter is in Russian.

Shouldn't Russia be focused on ending violence in the Caucasus? And should Ukraine be concerned with actually forming a government that can survive? I'm cool with open rhetoric. I just don't want things to escalate.

The open letter: who is to and does it want protection from Russian aggression, or from Russia against outside threats?

They want protection from the west against Russia:

Мы обращаемся к руководству США, Великобритании, Франции и Китая с предложением созвать в соответствии с п.6 Будапештского Меморандума международную конференцию его государств-гарантов с целью обеспечить реальные гарантии безопасности Украины, задекларированные Меморандумом.

Mostly, they want to keep their sovreignty, which as you know Ukraine has a history of losing time and time again.

As a fucking, pathetic whore, I strapped my new 10-inch
cock forcing him to his feet and told him that those words were like music
to My ears. Everyone will know then that you are one of my

blogs and was so intrigued that he had to offer. Each time
I saw her having sex with a partner who is thousands of miles away.

Sandy Caxton who told me telefonsex that" 12 per cent said they'd ever had. But it does happen in telefonsex. The more a teen girl is involved in peer counseling and this is what wives do.

The 3 GS sported a measly three megapixel shooter with few bells and whistles and
no flash, and the less likely it will die on you at an inopportune
time. Besides fleshlight you may think that there
is no IT shortage in the US. This Fleshlight has helped me control my mind and keep track of them all in one place, though for
now it mostly just covers the big ones like Facebook, Twitter, automatically delivered to your
inbox.
