  • Argent : Scorched earth in Ukraine: Army demolishes Luhansk airport in retreat

    User Avatar
    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. Adam, respect you so much, but, there are many things that need to be taken into account. - September 2nd, 2014 04:24:52 PM

    hello: I don't think Poroshenko and his kin see it as their own country - in their eyes, they are destroying Russian land/people. In order to improve morale during war time, one has to view the enemy as something inhumane and evil. As such, pro-russians see their enemy as nazis, while Ukrainians see this as an invasion by evil Russia. All those buildings and civilian deaths? Russians did it! Our weapons always hit military targets - collateral damage is non-existent ;) I must say though - it is somewhat shocking that CNN is starting to provide a much more balanced picture as to what's going on over there (a big credit goes to Diana Magnay - who was recently moved to Ukraine from Israel - after reporting that Israelis were laughing at the Gaza bombings and threatened to blow up her car if she did not fall in line with the Israeli narrative). CNN, however, is alone - as far as the rest of western media outlets are concerned. - September 2nd, 2014 03:35:12 PM

    Callit Whatitis: East Ukraine is no more a part of Ukraine. Russia has claimed it, like in Moldova and Georgia. Ukrainet is now trying to contain the spread of the russian forces. They destroyed the airport to prevent the "rebels" from claiming they now have the capabilities of air attacks and preventing aerial attacks from Russian Air Forces to begin unhindered, like the recent attack on a Coast Guard vessel near Mauripol waterl which the "rebels" attributed to shelling even though there is video of it being attacked by air. - September 2nd, 2014 03:27:32 PM

    Xin: ... It's hard to fathom that with all the information out there anyone could see this is as anything but a civil war. PS Still waiting for pictures of those smash Russian columns (fantasy) they claimed or even battalions of Russian tanks they claim they've been fighting the past week too... Of course it doesn't mean Russia is not involved however so are many other countries via mercenaries or other material support. It's a civil war with many nations supporting both sides. Sadly only the Ukraine itself could diffuse the situation with dialogue as neither sides nation backers will back down, that option looks unlikely with the current composition of politik in Kiev. - September 2nd, 2014 03:23:11 PM

    Adam Button: ok, ok, take a breather. It is what it is and everyone knows what's happening. There are Ukranians fighting for separatism and 'invasion' is no more clear than civil war. The point is that it's a bad idea to demolish your own country, especially when you're deep in debt. - September 2nd, 2014 03:19:49 PM

    Callit Whatitis: Why would you say something as ridiculous as "specially in a civil war"? Russia is invading Ukraine. This thing was never a civil war other than by Russian Propaganda and those fools like you who like to believe and repeat it. - September 2nd, 2014 03:16:30 PM

    kowalski: In Poland, many (me too) are calling them "banderowcy" (from Stiepan Bandera, a sick person, but "representing" most of them well,a leder of extrem nationalists , responsible for genocide on polish inhabitants of ukraine durring WW20, or "riezuny" ('rhiezoonie", from "riezatc", =slaughter, they killed, "ISIS-way", for nationalistc reasons =/- 150 K native Poles in"Wolyn", a part of Polad before WW2), then do not trust them, is seems to be a kind of normal for them. - September 2nd, 2014 03:10:44 PM

    Neymar: First it is not a civil war, it is an invasion of Russian forces of sovereign Ukraine territory, secondly buildings are destroyed by the Russian army shelling. Ukraininan troops blew up the run way before retreating to restrain Russian airborne landings. Know your facts before jumping to conclusions. - September 2nd, 2014 03:07:17 PM

    mart: @TR "I can’t see NATO/Russia going to nukes over, say, Estonia. " the people who pay the price for these games are the Ukrainians. I assume you are one of the armchair knowitalls who live comfortably somewhere in the west where it's easy to talk with no knowledge of what's happening to the people. - September 2nd, 2014 03:26:35 PM

    mart: @TR Mexico was invaded by the US many times. Much territory was stolen from Mexico by the US. So no it's not stupid. The only stupid thing I see here is an ignorant statement coming from you. In any case it was just a hypothetical analogy. it's irrelevant to say whether it's possible or not. The point is what would you think would be the US response. bye now - September 2nd, 2014 03:23:51 PM

    mart: @TR yes in diplomacy it matters but only to you reading a headline in the newspaper. It doesn't matter when a country's core security is threatened. And that is exactly what NATO is doing by attempting to expand further. The russians have been remarkably restrained but adding a NATO country on the border in a strategic area as the black sea in an attempt to cut off Russia's naval base is absurd. And they knew what would follow. It is just a shame that the ukrainians have to pay the price for these games the west plays. - September 2nd, 2014 03:17:51 PM

    Ryan Littlestone: I can't see any lasting effects from the independence story Xin, from an overall economic impact point of view. The risks for longs is that we continue to see this 2nd half slowdown which will push back rate expectations as well as raising questions about the economy. With the US looking fairly good it won't take much for the trend to continue. - September 2nd, 2014 03:37:55 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
