I've been observing this event for quite some time now and I see it as a potentially serious flashpoint as it can trigger a conflict between Russia and the west. Although in my opinion, the chances that full scale war between the superpowers will occur because of Ukraine is slim because the economic impact on both sides will be devastating and the loss of life would be very huge. But with world politics involved, you can never be too sure.

So what is your guys' opinion on this event and how do you believe it can be resolved? On whose side are you on, the West and the Interim Ukrainian Government's Regime or Russia and President Yanukovich's Regime?(is that how you spell his name?) For me, I don't have a stance yet since I am only beginning to understand how this situation came into being. Guys, it would be nice to hear your input on this. Smile

Things seem to just keep getting worse over there.

I side with the East.

Well, long time since I've posted on this forum and my first message since then is not a happy one.

MH 17 shot down over the border.

That's the second time our national airlines has suffered a downed plane.

This was all across the newspapers yesterday morning and the media were pushing their 'free press' a little too far with headlines such as 'Putins missile of death' and 'Russian missile downs airliner' yet they aren't so keen to print headlines such as 'American weapons shed blood on the streets of Belfast'

Agreed, American media shouldn't be so quick to blame Russia for such a thing.

Well. I just returned from living in Russia for about a year now.

The sanctions didn't do anything to Russia as a whole, but the normal people feel them. The central bank had to change the laws of prices going from indexed prices to free adjustment of the prices. It's difficult to explain, and I don't remember the correct therm for it - but at least in Murmansk, the tickets for bus and public transport went up several rubles in one night. Basic products like bread and milk instantly became more expensive, and during the month - everything had risen in price. The working class really felt these sanctions, and as all sanctions ever, they are inefficient of doing what they're supposed to do, and only created more disbelief in the western society and politics.

Sanctions will never do anything useful, other then making those who can least afford it suffer. Putin doesn't seem like the type to back down now.
