I see you have greece ukraine and georgia on the list...


Are you saying these countries aren't western allies, because I believe you would be wrong.


Greece enjoys a prominent geopolitical role, due to its political and geographical proximity to Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Its main allies are France, Italy, Bulgaria, United States, the other NATO countries like Albania, and the European Union.


en.wikipedia.org...


Georgian–American relations continue to be very close and encompass multiple areas of bilateral cooperation. As a key U.S. ally in the war on terror, Georgia was the third largest troop contributor in the Iraq War and is currently the largest per-capita contributor to the U.S. led mission in Afghanistan.

We all know Ukraine is an ally to the west.



interesting....
clutching at straws a bit there.
still


Yes it is...and yes you are.



none of them are even that big or important anymore.


Why because RUssia doesn't have that many allies, and why are they not important...because you say so, interesting.

Have you seen what's going on in spain?? They are putting everything out about Putin and how he used mob ties to take power. And the corruption in his government. This makes those wiki leaks on him look like child's play. They are showing Putin to be a gangster.

I read about that sometime back, but I can say I am not surprised that it's coming out...Putin had to have help from certain people to get to where he did.

You mean the American installed (via STRATFOR) government in Kiev is an ally to the west. Ukraine as a whole is split straight down the middle

Ironic -

they have no issues broadcasting the issues in Chernobyl with the fire and increased rad levels yet had absolutely no desire to communicate the same to the world when the thing melted down on the Russian's watch. It only took them a week + to let the world know and only because rad detectors in Europe started beeping like cell phones at a crack dealers convention.

Russia Already Working to Relaunch Tu-160 Supersonic Nuclear Bombers



Russia is already working to relaunch production of the powerful Soviet-designed Tupolev Tu-160 supersonic nuclear bomber, the Defense Ministry's senior procurement official told news agency RIA Novosti on Friday. “We are already working quickly [on the project], we have created a working group, scheduled monthly meetings with the Industry and Trade Ministry on how the work is progressing and appointed chief designers,” Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov told RIA Novosti. Designed in the twilight of the Soviet era, only 16 Tu-160 bombers were built before production ceased when defense funding dried up in the early 1990s. The aircraft, affectionately known in the Russian air force as the “White Swan,” are advanced supersonic bombers capable of delivering nuclear weapons. The move to relaunch production of the Tu-160 bomber comes after more than a year of Russian strategic bomber patrols near NATO borders, which have contributed to escalating tensions between Moscow and the West. Russian officials promised months ago that production of the Tu-160 would be relaunched, but details about the project's status have been sparse. Borisov said in early June that the new Tu-160s would be substantially upgraded versions of the Soviet-era design. While the plane's body will be unchanged, the components used in its construction will be entirely new, making it essentially a new aircraft, Borisov said. In May, the head of Russia's air force, Viktor Bondarev, said the Defense Ministry was interested in purchasing up to 50 of the new Tu-160s.


Why the rush job?

According to UNIAN, the Right Sector said in a statement addressing the Ukrainian nation: "Today, Ukraine has seen an extraordinary event that could change the course of history. In the town of Mukacheve in Zakarpattia hundreds of thugs besotted by impunity, working for abuser and drug dealer, [former] Regions Party member Mykhailo Lanyo, who is now Member of Parliament of Ukraine, have attempted to physically destroy Right Sector members. Criminals wearing the police uniform who are dependent on Viktor Medvedchuk, the odious fellow sponsor of the Ukrainians' main enemy [Russian President Vladimir Putin], also took part in this operation with the use of force" .

The Right Sector demands the immediate and public arrest of MP Lanyo, who took part in the event in person, as well as "all the criminals and law enforcers who opened fire [on the Right Sector members], and those who ordered to open the fire." The statement said that "the entire Right Sector military and political movement" has been placed on combat alert."


The Guardian
www.theguardian.com...


Near the city of Mukachevo, the site of a fierce gun battle involving Right Sector fighters, private security guards and police on Saturday, Right Sector members were camped in the forest and did not plan to put down their weapons, spokesman Artem Skoropadsky said. It was previously reported that police had surrounded some gunmen in a wooded area and were attempting to negotiate their surrender.

Lano said a Right Sector commander had met with him to ask his help in arranging sanatorium stays for men who had fought in eastern Ukraine, during which time an unknown man was shot outside. According to local medical staff, nine people were wounded, including three passersby, in addition to the fatalities.
A video published by journalist-turned-MP Mustafa Nayyem on Sunday shows Right Sector fighters shooting Kalashnikov rifles and a heavy machine gun mounted on a pickup truck, in what appears to be the direction of police who had arrived on the scene. Another piece of footage shows a police car burning.

About 200 people rallied in support of Right Sector outside the presidential administration in Kiev, many of them in military uniforms.

Kiev has allowed nationalist groups including Right Sector to operate despite allegations by groups like Amnesty International, that Right Sector has tortured civilian prisoners.
