    david: Hi Adam, Oil has had a great shank down today. Getting to the shaky $100 mark on Brent. I'm wondering whether sanctions are having a play on oil, in the sense that the IS and their bad ways being sponsored by wealthy individuals in places like Saudi and Qatar we are seeing a concerted push downwards. OPEC may well come out rise above the parapet and announce a reduction in output soon. New lows being carved out as I type. - September 2nd, 2014 06:22:31 PM

    Argent: Dmitry, this another Russian mantra - whatever happens to Russia, blame US... You guys, get a life... try to build a strong and successful country, with all those resources you have - this should have been an easy thing, much easier than for Japan after ww2. And then all those countries would be attracted to you...but alas, you are not able to do it...just insatiable desire to prove the world that you are great..

    Dmitry: Ukraine is over like an independent state, Russia will be hit by sanctions and economic situation will be very-very bad, europe will be hit as well by sanctions znd money they shud spend now to compensate losses from restrictions doing busness with Russia. There Is only one winner in this conflict - US. Other players all are in the loss-hole. US with Ukrainian politicians triggered this crisis. There is no way to stop it now. World cannot blame Putin. He had only one way to respond - September 2nd, 2014 06:06:17 PM

    hello: You know - whether or not there is propaganda in western/ukrainian/russian media - one would hope that there would be enough people that would actually promote peaceful outcome to this situation. Yet, time and time again, I see people here and elsewhere state how they support the troops and hope that they'll annihilate their enemies (of whichever side they are supporting). That, to me, is disturbing - though it clearly highlights just how little progress has been made by humanity over the centuries. What happens when you give nuclear bombs to two dumb kids? Eventually they'll use them. - September 2nd, 2014 05:57:55 PM

    hello: Clearly, Padryk has access to independent sources - I wonder - is it Fox news that is his primary source or perhaps he gets his info from the US state department briefings? ;) By the way, former US intelligence staff members sent this letter to Merkel. http://consortiumnews.com/2014/09/01/warning-merkel-on-russian-invasion-intel/ Too bad they are dumb-wits and do not have Padryk's sources. - September 2nd, 2014 05:30:20 PM

    Patryk: Hi Igor May I call you guys Kremlin Gremlins? It sounds cute, it rhymes and perfectly decribes things you do. Ah provocation - I`ve got one for you - the one you guys prepared. Do you remember Sergiey Shoigus trip to Slovakia from friday? On the way back home his plane has been refused access to the Polish airspace.Then he has been granted passage. Why ? It is simple. Shoigus plane flew to Slovakia thru Poland in the morning. This flight had a civil flight status. In the eavning , on the way back home, flight status has been changed to military shortly after a take-off and a demand to enter Polish airspace has been made. Russian military flights all over the NATO are possible only after a 7 day prior written notice. So he has been refused the access. Later on, as a civilian flight, he safely returned home. But that didin`t change the outcome of EU summit didn`t it? - what a shame for you. Looking forward to debunk every piece of propaganda you show up with, Yours sincerely Patryk - September 2nd, 2014 05:13:05 PM

    Patryk: Woohoo - Igor, hello and Xin - the whole Kremlin propaganda team in one place - busy start of the week/month You guys started posting comments shortly after Putin decided to annect Crimea. There are no comments from you on issues other than the ones Kremlin cares about - so nice of you. In the meantime: Russians no longer send bodies of killed soldiers back home. From yesterday they bury them in Ukrainian soil. There are two reasons for that : firstly,too many widows and mothers start to protest, secondly : morale in Russian army is not at the highest level. Despite overwhelming advantage in force Russia is forced to send 18 year old cadets threathend to sign a contract instead of well trained soldiers - do Russian soldiers refuse to kill their Ukrainian brothers? Also: according to latest poll by Levada Centr percentage of Russians ready to pay for supporting crippled Crimea dropped 10 percentage points from march tvrain has lots more info on Russia. Get your knowledge about Russia from independent sources while they still exist - not many of them are left. Cheers commarads Patryk - September 2nd, 2014 04:47:34 PM

    Argent: Igor, it were Russians in ww2 doing same in occupied Europe. Then Russians were doing it in Czech in 1968, in Afganistan in 80th. In Chechnya Russians destroyed all the country - there is no single family where someone was not killed, including kids...in Georgia in 2008, Russians invaded and were doing shit. Now they invalided Ukraine and all this bloodshed is your government's shit.

  • TR : Putin says that he hopes common sense will prevail in the West over sanctions

    User Avatar
    TR: @martin, you should read more carefully to whom you reply before insulting. Whatever I thought about your comparison, I did not call it stupid. Seems emotions took the better of you. Mexico was invaded by the USA once. In 1846-48. Stretching things, one can mention also the Texan Revolution of 1836. You can assume whatever you want about me, but my comment about nukes was in response to commenter "hello" who suggested that the invention of nukes changed all the rules compared to last century, with which I disagreed. My point was that local conflicts are still conventional (though they may be asymmetric, hybrid, whatever) and that smaller NATO members in Eastern Europe cannot put 100% trust in NATO's guarantees of security. Yes, Soviet Union was Russian Empire by another name. Many Russian nationalists see it as an age of greatness and president Putin deplores Soviet Union's collapse. Russian Federation assumed the Soviet Union's rights and obligations and is internationally recognised as SU's legal contination. How else then should I see Russia and why? And I'm not in the business of defending USA, I can easily agree that some of their recent interventions were wrong. It does not justify Russia's actions in Chechnya, Georgia, Ukraine. - September 2nd, 2014 05:02:20 PM

    Xin: I'm drawn to building up a cable long position. UK is in much better shape vs EU some recent UK data over the last month may have slid a little but it's still very positive compared to it's peers (I'd even argue over the US too). Of course there is referendum which I have pointed out many times when above 1.70 as reason to build a sell side position. However I feel we're getting deep into depressed value here & that may make a great risk/reward trade. - September 2nd, 2014 03:28:37 PM
