Dear john,


Coexistence seems to be the most difficult assignment ever on Earth.

Sorry to hear that, but your use of "us" is a bit presumptuous. While it may not matter to you, it does to me.
Our parents and grandparents that we may remember have worked hard; after all the tireless effort to come to the point where we become the losers for our silly leaders' decisions is heartbreaking to say the least. So, what’s substantial to you or to me must be as material to the rest of the world.

Western powers put down non-negotiable and superficial policies which landed Kiev in catch 22; the Ukraine and Russia have nothing to work out, to agree to. The economic sanctions against Russia are soon to backfire in the backyards that our previous generations labored on. Have you voted for that?

Respectfully yours
Joe

The government that had orchestrated unrests and got such a support from the west before it overthrew the legally elected president Yanukovich says

Although the Russian liberators are on their way to Eastern Ukraine, I fear the worst; the western liberators. I'll sleep tight tonight and hope for only one saving force to come.

Dear wonderingjoesmith,

Reminds me of Lenin:

"April: the German government helps the Bolshevik leader Lenin return to Russia. He publishes the 'April Theses', offering people: 'Peace, bread, land', and proclaims: All power to the Soviets'. Though historians disagree about specifics, they concur that the government of Germany deliberately facilitated Lenin’s return to his homeland in the spring of 1917. Without question, the German leadership did so with the intent of destabilizing Russia. The Germans provided Lenin with a guarded train that took him as far as the Baltic coast, from which he traveled by boat to Sweden, then on to Russia by train. There is also evidence that Germany funded the Bolshevik Party, though historians disagree over how much money they actually contributed."

Regards,
John

Regards,
John

Dear John,

V I Lenin had followed neither his nation's politicians nor their ideology before he got to Czar but some others such as Marx or Engels. Guess where those people where from?

However, I see your point and I agree that without the outside influence who knows where Russia would have been today.

What has powered the Ukrainian revolution is the modern way to make an impact; bribery at the highest levels where the opposition to the legally elected authorities is corrupted.

With such a dishonesty the financial institutions like the Swiss bank, which has just frozen 200 million Swiss Francs in the Ukrainian assets, will further undermine the coexistence on Earth.

Respectfully yours,
Joe
