Kiev is getting little money from the west because they did not exterminate enough Russians in the east of the Ukraine and the sooner Russia steps in the better
Russia respects, but does not recognize results of Novorossiya elections. 53910.jpeg
The Russian authorities do not recognize the elections in the breakaway People's Republics of Luhansk and Donetsk. Presidential aide Yury Ushakov said that the Kremlin respected, but did not recognize the November 2 elections in the people's republics.
Previously, policy-makers of foreign countries have threatened to tighten sanctions against Russian politicians, officials and businessmen, as well as state-run companies, should the country recognize the elections in the People's Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk. According to foreign officials, the elections were held in those territories contrary to the Minsk agreements from September 5th.
"Russia's official position has been expressed in a short, albeit capacious statement from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. It uses the word "respect," Interfax quoted Ushakov as saying.
When asked whether it was possible to equate "respect" and "recognition", he replied: "These are different words. The word "respect" was chosen deliberately. We fundamentally respect the will of the voters."
Noteworthy, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov stated that Vladimir Putin was not going to meet with elected heads of the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitsky.

Looks like this thread will need to go into the HOAX bin.
I wish there was a way an easy way to identify all the people who said this wasn't going to happen
This from the guy constantly ignoring other people's opinions and screaming "REFUTE IT".
Let's see what has Junta achieved since the Maidan. NOTHING! But they lost Crimea, Donbass, stand to lose more than half of the map of what was Ukraine. They have also lost more than 10,000 KIA in troops, many more WIA, billions in machinery and 10s of billions in economic losses.
You dont agree with it. Why would I waste time trying to argue something you refuse to acknowledge?
