They called for both sides to "stop violence and military actions" in eastern Ukraine.
Both leaders “have spoken for a prompt end to bloodshed in southeast Ukraine as well as for an end to military actions from both sides – from the side of the Ukrainian armed forces and the supporters of federalization of Ukraine,” said Putin’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov.
Putin might as well say: "We don't really care how many Russians you kill, or have killed...It's not like they are same as us or anything..."
If Putin isn't trolling (or seriously threatened by the west with nuclear strikes) I don't know how else to regard this other than COWARDLINESS от Владимир Владимирович Pussyn!!! The man I once held in high regard is a mere shadow of the man I thought him to be...To say that I'm disappointed doesn't really cover it! The man better have said this while having his own plans of turning the situation in Russia's favor!!!
Let's wait for say a month
The enemy is at the other side of atlandic.
Donbass is the new Russia. After all
I hope you're right.
I really do. I'm dumbfounded by Russia's actions in all of this. Or non-actions rather.
No different from Russian actions before "22 June 1941" or before ... or before ...
For more than a week or two after the "June 22nd event", "Stalin" was "arguing" that nothing had happened ...
I understand the feelings, but if Russia makes a Crimea-like move here, then by induction what would their next move is to be? What would their move following their next move is to be?
If they wanted to make all of those moves now, why would the Russians expel Ukraine and ... from Russia to begin with?
Don't search for the answers in the popular "explanations" of all of these phenomena; there can never be any truth in those popular "explanations"; all of those are prole-feed. You need to be mathematical about these things.
It would all happen, but not now.
Problem is that Russian diplomacy is so complex that ending up confusing even their own people that exert the policies!
Being direct may not be the best way according to traditional diplomacy (I disagree I have my own theory anyway) but twisting for the sake of it is certainly not better.
Russia IS an untrustworthy country that can have no serious allies. To ally with someone you need to understand him and rely upon him, Russia is not such,
don't know the reason, can't be a sound explanation anyway but until this change Russia will be destined to be isolated and harassed and this was one of the main reasons
why lost cold war 1 as well.
