Moscow Rules Ukraine

Putin’s stooge in Ukraine cancels their NATO bid, then extends Russia’s base lease in Sevastopol for 25 years! Two big Ukrainian national security decisions have effectively been decided in Moscow. The Ukrainian opposition is right; this is treason by Yanukovych—taking orders from a foreign power.

What else will be given away to Moscow, short of a large part of the country? As the old idiom goes: give them an inch and they will take a mile.

“NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said NATO policies had not changed since it promised Ukraine eventual membership at a summit in 2008.”
