Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk and NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who is visiting Ukraine now, discussed joint steps meant for further deepening of the country’s cooperation with the alliance, the government’s Web site reported.

“To be more precise, the matter concerns cooperation in the frames of the instrument of Annual National Programme, as well as a use of the NATO-based new Trust Funds to maintain defense capacity of Ukraine with the material-technical provisions, communication management system, cybernetic protection, and social adaptation of soldiers transferred to the reserve,” the report said.

Yatseniuk said how important to apply joint efforts to overcome menace to European security represented by Russia against Ukraine. He also welcomed an active position of the alliance that condemns Russia’s annexation of Crimea and aggressive actions on the east of Ukraine.

Yatseniuk and Rasmussen said it is important to take additional measures to respond to the development of the situation in Ukraine on the results of the NATO future summit, which is to be held in Great Britain on September 4-5.

    Rick, your compilations of news is indispensable to many watching from a global perspective. What are your personal thoughts…

    #1) on the next stage in this entire engagement? Will Putin finally recognize the early May eastern Ukrainian referendums (calling it R2P) organized by separatists in Donetsk and Luhansk? Such a move, of course, would be headlined in the West as another “annexation” and “invasion” – the very casus belli US-EU-NATO needs to begin a “hot war” with mass support and one Western leaders, it seems, are preparing to fight.

    #2) Is Putin’s job security at stake? Although his popularity is very high according to pollsters, are other actors within Russia pushing him out or, at least, vying to control him? If so, who are these actors? Are they hawks, oligarchs, Westernizers, etc.

    #3) Finally, if a de fact engagement occurs between Russia and NATO, what war strategies will be used and from where will they be used (type of forces, nations)?

    #4) If even a local nuclear exchange occurs, what next?

    Thank you Rick. You and the site are indispensable..

      My gratitude for your supportive and generous words.
      I doubt my ability to offer a definitive response to your – very incisive, pertinent – questions.
      I also wander if – no, I am convinced that – it’s too late for words.
      The final massacre is underway in and around Lugansk and Donetsk and nobody – not the Russian government, incontrovertibly – is doing anything to stop it.
      I said toward the end of May, immediately after the first massacre of anti-fascists in Donetsk, with Russia not doing – not even saying – anything about it, that the game was over, the jig was up.
      This is what the aggressive and unchallenged “world’s sole military superpower” can be expected to act like.

    Thank you, Rick, for responding. More than anyone, I trust your insight. Someone once said that it is a very lonely to know something others don’t know. Further, it is worse than disappointing to learn that others don’t care to know. Indeed, it is despairing.

    Those who know, know. The truth is out and has germinated in many to write, speak-out and express the passions and fears of the moment. Those who cannot hear at this time will hear later. We don’t know what fate awaits the course, we only can surmise it.

    Nevertheless, one is required to make suitable arrangements for mentally and emotionally coping with the forthcoming times. Wars destroy more than bodies; they kill dreams and ideals also.

    Hold fast your dreams, ideals and values while surviving the times ahead. Good people must live to rebuild a world destroyed by madness.

    La Chaim,
    Michael T Bucci
