    Russia does not need to be desperate to keep trading with Ukraine simply because Moscow can't disengage from Ukraine without damaging it's own economy and society in the process.

    Your wrong then. Because there is almost nothing left now since Ukraine cut military trade with Russia and that is really the only thing they obtained economically. As well, it was Ukraine who pushed Moscow back and got growing popularity with their own population, not the other way around. No, they dont need Ukraine either economically or socially, and it is ever more evident now than before. You should have noticed this. I am starting to believe the others that your not what you portray yourself to be.

    Economically and especially socially, Russia doesnt need Ukraine.

    So how does this down syndrom strucken woman expect to have good relations with Russia when all they are doing is demonizing them, threatening them and placing troops near her border? F me, the people are beyond retarded and even not trying to hide it. Europeans must feel really stupid right now.

    I agree, but with the Ukrainian currency value where it is and is going, buying stuff there will be pretty cheap for Russians. Then there is the temptation, even the need to survive, for some Ukrainian companies, who's main customers have been and are Russian, to get their goods to their customers, one way or another (with the 'commission' potential to exploit). With Poro saying 'No trade' we have no idea what is actually happening. Watch out for new turbine and diesel engine customers over the next year or so in countries ignoring the US sanctions perhaps.

    Russia is already showcasing VK-2500 engines for helicopters from their st.pete plant and already recently made 10 of them for tests and such. They hope to have 60 by year end and then possibly full development, and already started work on replacement of Ukraine ship engines.

    What sort of trade is Russia going to keep with Ukraine?  

    Ukraine is busy cutting off both Russia and its nose.   Russia is not desperate for Ukrainian goods and would only trade if it
    achieved something.

    Interview, in Russian I assume, at Kharkov tank restoring factory. Think it is about T-64 or T-80. Pictures of lots of old and tatty tanks.

    On Youtube, but I can't link to it as still too new here, this is it 0Y1VvyWXp8o

    Regarding the pics from that protest, or demonstration or whatever it is, what are they trying to say exactly? That "moskals" are zombies? But if that's so, then some aspects of their costumes confuse me. Like, why does that one guy have what loks like a Ukrainian flag around his neck? And some of it looks like an imitation of Ukrainian folk clothing rather than Russian. scratch

    Can anyone translate the sign they're carrying?

    Lets face facts. Russia does need Ukraine, at least now. Look up how much of its natural gas Russia exports to Europe through it. Then look up the gas disputes that happened in the past between Ukraine and Russia before Maidan and the losses that both sides incurred.

    Russia will need Ukraine for as long as it can't find ways to circumvent it as a transit country. It's probably why Gazprom announced plans to build an extension to Nord Stream last week.

    Turk Stream will be complete by the end of 2016.  The EU has until then to get its pompous ass in gear and build the necessary link to the
    Turkey-Greece border.   As of January 2017 there will the zero transit of Russian natural gas through Ukraine.   Russia is also
    expanding Nord Stream to make sure that Brussels retards don't leave south and east Europe stranded without any gas in their game
    of chicken with Russia in an attempt to coerce Russia to retain Ukraine as a transit country.

    It states in Ukrainian:

    "Vesti:

    Thanks for the support of Russian propaganda."

    A retarded sign carried by a bunch of retards. BTW, they are trying to dress up like ethnic Russian folk.

    These people are the lost generation of the post 1991 era. They have lapped up the Holodomor koolaid and
    loved the taste. They are inadequates who project their inferiority complex onto Russia in the form of hate.
    Russia should embargo Ukraine to make sure these maggots feel the consequences of their actions on their own hides.

    BTW, I am half Ukrainian from western Ukrainian stock. But I hate Banderites and all their fellow travelers in Ukraine
    and NATO with an intense passion. You can't fob me off as "a Russian".

    Very powerful video from clips of the war in Donbas. Lyrics are from Victor Tsoy, but I believe the singer is Polina Gagarina from this years Eurovision.

    im dumbfounded by this display of asshattery. i mean it makes sense if you can read the slogans that they are against the Seps and the Russians but instead it looks like they are portraying the Ukrainian side as the braindead zombies here. hello! St. George Ribbon as stand-in for brains- that suggests to to me root for the living side(the ones wearing St George ribbons) going by what dozens of hollywood zombie flicks have taught me(as is most of the world).

    I only head over there when something major breaks out, like the battle in Marinka that happened recently. If there is no major offensive from either side, there is no point in visiting that forum. Full of people who rarely have accurate info on whats happening on the ground.

    Trade it's not only direct exchange between governments, you have to take into account the whole picture. Cutting trade for real means sending droves of people straight into poverty in both Ukraine and Russia with no benefit in sight unless you're suggesting not touching banking, small companies, individuals, gastarbeiter, smuggling, etc. but then you are not cutting trade at all.

    What I've noticed is that Kiev has little input into Moscow's stance and that it's renewed popularity is the result of a tactful approach that has been able to cater wide parts of the society, at home and abroad, if that's not an achievement then I don't know what could be. But Russia is not a monolithic society so any change towards drastic measures can easily spark hatred if people start to blame "others" for their misfortunes, something not far fetched when there're literally millions of people with strong opposing views.

    Not needing it does not mean that a harsher stance is going to improve the situation for anyone but it's the shortest path to disaster.
