More Russian Tanks Are Coming While Russia-US ‘Remain At Odds’ Over Ukraine

The Tanks Are Coming While Russia-US “Remain At Odds” Over Ukraine (ZeroHedge, March 14, 2014):

With Interfax reporting that Belarus has begun full-scale military drills in a “readiness check”, images from Russia and Ukraine suggest the worst-case scenario – that Russia is making preparations to invade Ukraine, not just Crimea but perhaps as far west as Kharkiv, or even beyond – is more possible. Talks have broken down:

  • *LAVROV SAYS RUSSIA, U.S. REMAIN AT ODDS ON UKRAINE: INTERFAX
  • *LAVROV SAYS RUSSIA TO RESPECT `WILL’ OF CRIMEAN PEOPLE

Russia now has a massive force of tanks, troops, artillery, aircraft, and naval forces in position to potentially invade mainland Ukraine from Crimea in the south, but also from positions east and north of Ukraine.

Lavrov adds:

Chernobyl Children Are ‘SICKER NOW THAN EVER’ (Video)

At 2:15 into the video.


Local program helps children receive treatment years after Chernobyl (King5, June 25, 2013):

For most of us, the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster is history. But the reality is its effects linger for thousands still living around the site, which will be contaminated for centuries to come.

Two decades ago, a program was started locally to help those in Belarus receive treatment, and now Hope for Chernobyl’s Child is continuing that mission in Renton.

On Tuesday, nine children landed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and met their host families. For the next six weeks, they’ll visit with doctors who volunteer their time for everything from surgery to dental work.

Over the years, more than 350 kids have been helped; organizers say children now are sicker than ever from Chernobyl’s lasting effects.

“Even our poorest day is better than their best,” said Dave Lyon, who is hosting a 10-year-old girl named Alina. “We have so much, and what little ways that we can give back, we should.”

Belarus – Hyperinflation In Action: Beer For Bag Of Cash (Video)

Hyperinflation In Action: Beer For Bag Of Cash (ZeroHEdge, Jan 12, 2013):

In May 2011, Belarus surprised its citizens by devaluing its currency by 50% overnight in an attempt to kickstart its economy, leading to swift and brutal hyperinflation. And while written narratives of the most recent episode of monetary collapse are one thing, nothing is quite as amusing, and grounding for those attempting to “value” money (such as Nobel prize winning economists writing out of their steel exoskeletal ivory towers), as watching a bag of cash be used to pay for seven boxes of beer. And nothing is quite a cathartic as spending several hours trying to count said cash – cash backed by the “full faith and credit” of the Belarus central bank…

Russia Negotiates Union With Ex-Soviet States

Russia negotiates union with ex-Soviet states (The Nation Dec 20, 2012):

MOSCOW  – Russia sought Wednesday to expand its influence over former territories during integration talks that Washington has cast as a bid to “re-Sovietise” the region.

President Vladimir Putin met separately with the leaders of Belarus and Armenia before engaging the head of resource-rich Kazakhstan about ways to more closely bind the neighbours’ economies.

He also attended a collective security meeting that resolved to create a Moscow-led air defence unit that would focus its activities on the regions surrounding war-torn Afghanistan.

Western attempts “to force other nations to accept their own standards can lead to the most serious circumstances,” Putin said in a trademark swipe at the United States.

This is especially underscored by the “dramatic situation in North Africa and the Middle East,” Putin said.
