MEP Béla Kovács: After the EU parliament elections in May sanctions against Russia most likely will be withdrawn

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

After the May EU parliament elections sanctions against Russia, which have been put in place by the EU due to developments in Crimea, most likely will be withdrawn said Hungarian MEP Béla Kovács in Moscow to the the Itar - Tass Russian state news agency on Wednesday.

Jobbik MEP Béla Kovács is in Moscow as a co-Chairman of the EU-Russia inter-parliamentary working group on energy to prepare for the next board meeting.

The Jobbik politician stated that the new EP management wouldn't impose further sanctions on Russia instead it removes the existing ones.

Kovács deplored the punitive actions against Russia, because the reunification of Crimea with Russia has been affirmed the right to self-determination to all "peoples".

The Crimean referendum on March 16 "was entirely legal". The Hungarian politician participated in the Crimean referendum as an observer. According to official records, almost one hundred percent of the population of the peninsula and the city of Sevastopol voted to join the Russian Federation.

Béla Kovács deplored the fact that the EU-Russia Inter-parliamentary Committee suspended its activities; the EU-Russia Energy Working Committee however, will continue its work.

Hungary is very much interested in developing good relations with Russia, not only in the energy sector, but in all other areas said the Jobbik politician.

Ukraine Crisis: How Much War Does Washington Want? by Paul Craig Roberts

I doubt that the Ukraine crisis precipitated by Washington’s overthrow of the democratic government is over. Washington has won the propaganda war everywhere outside of Russia and Ukraine itself. Within Ukraine people are aware that the coup has made them worse off...
How this will play out is uncertain at this time. The violence provided by the Right Sector and other ultra-nationalist groups was essential to the success of the Washington-backed coup in overthrowing the elected democratic government. But the Right Sector has emerged as both an embarrassment and a threat to the unelected coup government and to its Washington sponsors who are selling the Washington-installed puppet government as a progressive exercise in democracy. This sell is difficult when ultra-nationalist thugs are beating up the imposed government...
The purpose of the Washington financed and orchestrated coup in Kiev was to put Ukraine, with its artificial boundaries, into the EU and NATO and to evict Russia from its warm water port and ring Russia with US missile bases. Washington and its European puppets described this as “bringing democracy to Ukraine.”...
Ukraine already had democracy, a young one trying to put down roots, and Washington destroyed it. As Russian President Putin observed, overthrowing a brand new democracy destroys democracy. Washington’s coup established for Ukraine the precedent that force and propaganda rule, not democracy...
Washington’s intervention in Ukraine has unleashed dark forces. Yulia Tymoshenko, the criminal Ukrainian oligarch, who braids her hair or hair piece over her head like a crown, was released from prison by Washington’s stooges and has not stopped putting her foot, or both feet, in her mouth. Her latest in her intercepted and leaked telephone conversation is her declaration that “it’s about time we grab our guns and go kill those damn Russians together with their leader.” She declared that not even scorched earth should be left where Russia stands.

Tymoshenko was sentenced to prison by Ukrainians, not by Russians. Contrast her extreme language and Russophobia with the calm measured tones of Putin, who reaffirms Russia’s interest to continue good relations with Ukraine...
The European, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, and UK governments have betrayed not only their own peoples but also the peoples of the entire world by lending the support of Western Civilization to Washington’s lawlessness.
