Well it's good the US will give them financial aid so they can pay their gas bill .I wonder if that will be in gold or some BRIC currency ...time will tell ....peace
Whatever the "currency", it will go to Russia for the debts.
Which might be the plan in the first place.
Russia benefits from the whole charade.
So it is bad that a deotor has to pay back their debts now?
No it's not bad.
But what prevents the debt from adding up again later?
Debt = Slavery and economic insurrection.
It's happening right now.
Why is there debt in the first place?

You do realize that Russia had a agreement with Ukraine to have 25,000 troops in Crimea and that Crimea was a fully autonomous region of Ukraine . So Russia did not invade Ukraine as was reported in the western MSM and Crimea decided to separate from Ukraine and join Russia .The province of Quebec in Canada has had similar referendum to separate from Canada in the past and may have another one in the near future ....peace
This may force Ukraine to use their nukes against Russia if they become backed into a corner with nothing to lose.
This is a sad day for the US. One has to wonder how strong the NATO alliance is, and how long it will be before it is tested. This is not the US I know.
So let the Svoboda party get their nukes, the world will turn on them in a flash and every Ukranian around the world will have a very unhappy life.
