I give up. There is literally NOTHING easy to understand about Russia. I love history, i like educating myself, but Russia is out of my league. Putin is a fascinating character, but trying to learn anything Russia is pointless for this guy.

THIS IS PROPAGANDA. To state Russia "invaded Crimea" is a LIE.      Legally Russia had already troops in Crimea because it has a large Naval base there, so to say "Russia invaded Crimea" is an extreme SPIN to confuse ignorant people who rely only in Corporate Media for their news. The results of the COMPLETELY LEGAL Crimea Referendum where the majority voted to RE-join Russia, by its RUSSIAN SPEAKING INHABITANTS has more to do with Kiev's demands to forbid Russian speaking in Ukraine than the Economic Benefits they immediately enjoyed when they again became part of Russia. IMAGINE IF A NEW GOVERNMENT IN SWITZERLAND ANNOUNCED THE GERMAN LANGUAGE WILL BE BANNED?  Don't you thing the German speaking Swiss people would feel angry and threatened?     Or what would Quebec say if the new Canadian government announced French speaking was forbidden? So it is understandable if Crimeans had a choice to belong to a country economically stable, like Russia, and move away from a country that is not allowing them to use their daily language and that has been a basket-case economically for many years, (and in fact was about to get much worse with the IMF new restrictions.     SO THEY DID CHOOSE TO JOIN RUSSIA..... LEGALLY while the Kiev puppet government was attacking them as a culture and as a people.

GCU ht if Russia invaded Crimea in 2014, then West Germany also invaded East Germany in 1989. Inclusion of Crimea into Russian Federation is more legitimate then the annexation of Eastern Germany. Why? Because of the Crimean referendum.

China imports 53% of fossil fuel from USA 13% from Angola 10% from Russia. Also, mankind already digs more natural resoursces than it can consume. Iran, as example, digs less oil than before fundamentalist's coup de tat. Imagine what's gonna happen if India will finally supply its miners with excavators and jackhammers.

+David Perrier and you think RUSSIA has NO port facilities ??? since china and india are the also biggest consumers of oil and natural gas, u think CHINA and INDIA has NO port facilities ???  Why USA policy makers are so dumb thinking that if Western Europe votes against of Russia for Ukrain crisis & this thing will make Russia's Economy to crash ?  the USA did same mistake with IRAN but IRAN economy is doing fine infact more than just fine ... USA policy makers knew that sanctions on Iran and Russia will not do any harm to these nations but just a drama made for the european(allies) audiences ... In geo-political language its called symbolism or symbolic without any hard substance in it.

You got it all backwards: Sanctions had virtually no effect on russian economy and they mostly affect  oil exploration industry. Considering dropping oil prices investing in oil drilling is stupid idea anyway Sanctions and invasion actually help Putin a lot because there is someone to blame and there is some uniting factor for russians to endure all those hardships Giving up  would not make things better in russia. Ruble will still fall and people will be even more angry.

If people paid attention they would realize what led up to russia taking over parts of Ukraine and for what reason. All of this started because the original leader and parliament did not want to join the euro and the IMF. Of course George Soros stuck his nose in it. since he wants to rip off Ukraine resources. Add them to an overnight added debt. Throw in the IMF to rip off Ukraine citizens. Basically will turn them into another Greece. He and others sent people in to start riots and snipers to shoot people in order to over throw the leader. Just like they did in Libya. It also cut off Russian ports when they added a non friendly banker they put in power. Putin had no choice but to control parts of Ukraine. They also used this crisis to bring in rockets along the border that threatens Russia. So the Saudis still mad over Russia interfering with Syria and keeping America out of the war. They decided to crash the economy period. They also do not like any country who sells oil to another with out going thru the US exchange. Look at all the wars in the last 20 years. iraq, libya,syria, iran and a few other countries has by passed the stock exchange. Im not a Putin fan boy by no means. But to destroy a country and hurt its citizens because you don't like a leader is BS. If China felt that way the US would have been sunk. These politicians and elite bankers need to get a grip on reality. They easily could open a pandora's box. If they do they will be hunted down by citizens from all around the world. Collapse the worlds economy and before its all said and done, They will be public enemy number 1 for generations

Ukraine ended up with a purin pupppet in Ukraine, this was not known at election time , millions of Ukrainians demanded that this russiam scum get out ! the Ukrainian people REMEMBER HOLODOMOR

Ukraine had a DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED President  Viktor Yanukovych whose government was attacked by CIA, Mossad and MI6 paid "non-violent protesters" using molotov bombs, and eventually caught shooting their own protesters together with the unarmed Ukraine police (intercepted phone call  http://mindetox.com/ukraine-_the_phone_call_change.html  ) to confuse supporters, and finally force the collapse of the elected government.    It was then that a "new" puppet West backed "president" was installed by the US controlled elections in Ukraine, where the Russian speaking provinces of the western Ukraine couldn't even vote. Ukraine's turmoil has been fed by the West in order to shut up Putin and his government to eliminate an obstacle for the Financial Cartel that controls "democratic" governments using DEBT as its lever-weapon, so this Cabal can fulfill its next plan to collapse the US dollar and impose a new currency called SDR's  http://philosophyofmetrics.com/2014/01/21/sdrs-and-the-new-bretton-woods-part-one/  . It is this infectious CABAL who controls Fractional Reserve Banking in the world, who benefits from all this turmoil, and they are able to do it in front of our eyes because of the vast information control they apply on the education system and Media, keeping the vast majority of people ignorant of what they do while infecting the whole planet with their disease. THIS video explains what Fractional Reserve Banking is doing to the world   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iBSBVew-3Y

I know Russian history.  It's full of them being invaded and them invading others.  If there are no Russians in the Ukraine or Crimea then that means those rebels just happened to have armoured vehicles sitting around along with artillery, anti-aircraft guns, missiles and Russian uniforms.  Doesn't seem likely. I'd really like to see you do all that stuff you said.  Is your bite as funny as your bark?

You fucking ignorant fuck, you. There are zero Russian troops in Ukraine. I guess you are doing a great job reading the fucking News paper. Maybe pick up a fucking Russian history book and read exactly what happened from 1991 to now. Ukraine was part of Russia you scummy little fuck they just didn't want to be part of it no longer and Putin has no problem with that its the Russians that are still living inUkraine and were given Ukrainian passports and through them out. now if you wanna keep making your self look like an incompetent fuck that you are go ahead and reply but you are a low payed cockroach that keeps paying half of your money in taxes to your government. so shut your mouth before I kick a fork down your mouth and shut it for you.

How about the west sanctioning Saudi Arabia for violating human rights and invading Bahrain, putting their flags on the Parliament and streets of the tiny island.. Hypocrites! 
RealDeal441 (11 months ago)
why doesn't Iran sanction the Gulf countries and Saudi Arabia? Oh wait: 1. Iran is powerless and weak to sanction any country in the world 2. Thousands of Iranians leave Iran and work happily and voluntarily in Gulf countries......end result: try to fix Iran's huge problems before lecturing the West on anything!

Are rumors of possible small energy company acquisitions, like the purchase of TexHoma Energy Inc. (ticker symbol = TXHE), a sign of things to come as oil prices continue to plunge?
oterenceo (3 years ago)
The other way is to increase oil prices back up.  This can be either be done covertly or overtly.  I prefer it covertly.

They do not want this but putin is best of the worst choices. russians are not some cult idiots, but just practical and reasonable people. They all know that no matter whom they will elect it will be just stealing and corruption and nothing can be done about that, Putin Is at least capable to control that corruption best of all. and he is capable to stand up for russian interests.

+Nozownikzkgb "There's still cult of authority and people have been  bullied since 1918. " And before that, they were bullied by the Tsars since Ivan the Terrible. YET 28% of Russians polled in 2013 want to _restore the monarchy._ http://rt.com/politics/russia-monarchy-return-poll-661/ Russia has a "Monarchist Party_ that actually chose a tsar last year: Prince Karl Emich of Leiningen, who is apparently related to the Romanovs. I don't think they'll be restoring the monarchy, but it seems pretty clear that Russians _do_ seem to favor a strong handed ruler. Even to their detriment.
Nozownikzkgb (3 years ago)
The thing is that they still have post-soviet mentality and nothing can change it. There's still cult of authority and people have been  bullied since 1918.
