Primakov: “There’s Been no Such Surge of Patriotism since the Victory in the Great Patriotic War and the First Human Spaceflight”

On Wednesday, ex-Chairman of the RF Government Yevgeni Primakov said during a lecture at Moscow State University, “Russia’s reunification with the Crimea and Sevastopol wasn’t a well-thought-out decision, but rather a reaction to developments in the Ukrainian crisis, which outside forces orchestrated. Russia took measures to ensure security of the peninsula’s population during the vote from raids and provocations by radicals. There’s been no such surge of patriotism since the victory in the Great Patriotic War and the first human spaceflight”.

The Republic of the Crimea and Sevastopol, a city with a special status on the Crimean Peninsula, where most residents are Russians, refused to recognise the legitimacy of the new Ukrainian junta that seized power amidst riots after a coup in the Ukraine in February. Crimea and Sevastopol adopted declarations of independence on 11 March. They held a referendum on 16 March, in which 96.77 percent of Crimeans and 95.6 percent of Sevastopol voters chose to secede from the Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. President Vladimir Putin signed the reunification pacts on 18 March. In the USSR, the Crimea was part of the RSFSR until 1954, when KPSS leader Nikita Khrushchyov signed it over to the Ukrainian SSR.

This is the reason most unreported in the Western media:

There’s been no such surge of patriotism since the victory in the Great Patriotic War and the first human spaceflight.

To put it simply, the people of Russia have unity and they have confidence in their leadership. The same isn’t true of the USA. No leader has the American people’s confidence… no one trusts the media or the government in the USA… no one… and the right opposition has LESS cred than President Obama does (would YOU trust a quitter and ignoranus like Sarah Palin or a cruel heartless harridan like Ann Coulter?).

From the outset, the junta’s done stupid shit… first, it outlawed the Russian language, then, it outlawed President Yanukovich… and then, it started to backtrack! For me, the main reality is that the junta hasn’t reined in the Euromaidan terrorists, who’re the real “power behind the throne”. The Ukraine is an anarchic mess, so, it’s no wonder that people want out. The status quo ante is unrealisable as the junta’s bumbling and pro-fascist statements shattered it. The American-fomented coup saw to that… and most “Ukrainians” don’t wish to be American slaves.

The USA doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude to face down the Russians on their own turf. Make no mistake on it… the “Ukraine” IS Russia. Kiev is “the Mother of all Russian Cities”… full stop. Besides which, the Ukraine isn’t the USA’s business, after all… it’s part of the Russian sphere of influence. The world and the USA would be a better place if the USA abandoned its drive for global hegemony. Not only would it be FAR less expensive in terms of money, it’d give us peace for a generation, at least.

What shall the USA choose? It’s all dependent on what YOU choose… do choose well.
