[31.10.2014] Russia and Ukraine // Statement by YABLOKOs Political Committee, 30.10.2014, Submitted by Grigory Yavlinsky Russia's aggressive policy towards Ukraine is central in the anti-European policies of the Russian authorities.
The annexation of Crimea and transfer of the Russian arms to the so-called "separatists", sending volunteers there, propaganda and military support from Russia - all of this fits into the concept of "incitement of war".
This policy does not have the slightest meaningful perspective - either political, or economic, or military, or diplomatic. It only leads to endless bloodshed, rapid growth of crime, lies and even greater degradation of the situation both in the South-East of Ukraine and the Russian state and society. Support of quasi-state formations that have absolutely no political or economic means in addition to other things a lie and unforgivable attitude towards people as some “material” for geopolitical experiments.
