Topic: Turbulence in Ukraine
MOSCOW, March 20 (RIA Novosti) – Making Ukraine a federal state is the only way to stabilize situation in the country, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday.
“We want to understand, who exactly will represent legitimate authorities in Kiev. In this regard we have a proposal: first of all, a constitutional reform should be held, so that interests of all Ukrainian citizens and regions are respected. This is the only basis for forming legitimate authorities, legislative and executive, central and regional,” Lavrov told members of the lower chamber of the Russian parliament.
“And we are convinced that the situation in the country can be stabilized only through making Ukraine a federal state,” he continued.
Crimea, previously an autonomous republic within Ukraine, refused to recognize the legitimacy of the government in Kiev that came to power amid often violent protests last month and sought reunification with Russia after 60 years as part of Ukraine.
The reunification treaty, which sparked the most serious geopolitical showdown between Russia and the West since the end of the Cold War, was ratified by the State Duma on Thursday.

- mythoslightEven the US...22:21, 20/03/2014..cold war, smart *ss retards understands two things:
1)Only a federal state can save Ukraine from their failed little Drang nach osten/Brzezinski experiment and 2) Nobody would benefit from having these Nazi maniacs running around killing, sniping and threatening people.
A third thing that they will start to realize is that they (the tribal trio Nudelman, Kagan & Pyatt)can´t put this monster they have been conjuring up, back in the bottle or satan back in the hole again. Only Russia. They did it before and they will gladly do it again.
When that is done, the US "empire" is dead and over with.
