That fight between them will never be over, Kashmir fight is just a tail end of the 2000 yr old war
The history of the Crimean peninsula covers more than 2,000 years, with many different conquerors and settlers throughout time. The Cimmerians, Greeks, Scythians, Goths, Huns, Bulgars, Khazars, the state of Kievan Rus', Byzantine Greeks, Romans, Kipchaks, Ottoman Turks, Golden Horde Tatars and the Mongols all controlled Crimea in its early history. In the 13th century, it was partly controlled by the Venetians and by the Genovese; they were followed by the Crimean Khanate and the Ottoman Empire in the 15th to 18th centuries, the Russian Empire in the 18th to 20th centuries, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic and later the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic within the Soviet Union. In 1991 it became part of independent Ukraine, as the Autonomous Republic Crimea together with the city of Sevastopol.
While many emerging markets are taking a beating, a fantastic growth story in the developing world is widening and drawing in new countries
Emerging markets are taking a beating these days, most of all the famous BRIC economies — Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four once seemed poised to dominate a post-American world. Not anymore. Brazil and India are posting growth rates that are only a fraction of what they were a couple of years ago. Russia’s prospects, already hampered by an overbearing state, are unlikely to improve as its aggressive moves into Ukraine could force Europe and the U.S. to impose economic sanctions. Even mighty China, while still notching admirable growth, must confront rising debt and a distorted financial system. The supremacy of the emerging world suddenly seems very far off.
But look past these headline grabbers, and you’ll find other emerging economies continuing to show economic strength. So for now, forget the BRICs; take a look at the PINEs.
It makes sense, I do not know why more people are not focusing on BRICS, does it not make sense that the International Banksters will do anything to stop this from happening and on the flip side of course India/China will be behind Russia, the power is shifting in the world, that is all there is too it.
either china and india stand with russia or the west will destroy them one at a time.
BRICS are far more powerful than given credit to, hell not many people in the west even know what it is. Then have like 3-4Billion populations of the earth.
As person who works in Drug/testing field, our companies are shifting everything to CHINA/INDIA/BRAZIL.
According to them "that is where everything is going to be", West is a stale market, nothing is getting better, same old same old.
