Hollande sez France doesn’t Want the Ukraine in NATO nor Wants to Send Them Arms

FRANCE-GERMANY-NATO-SUMMIT-DEFENCE

______________________________

French President François Hollande told a press conference in Paris that France finds Ukrainian NATO membership “undesirable” and that Paris doesn’t plan to supply arms to the Ukraine, saying, “We must state it clearly, we should tell other countries the truth, including about what we aren’t ready to accept. This is France’s position”. He noted that Paris is ready to do everything possible to prevent war in the Ukraine by diplomatic means, “France doesn’t fight in the Ukraine and doesn’t want to see war in the Ukraine; we want to prevent war. We must do everything possible in order for diplomacy and politics to gain the upper hand”. Earlier, Hollande said that he’d travel to Kiev with German Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel on Thursday to seek a solution to the intensifying conflict in Novorossiya. On Friday, Hollande and Merkel will hold talks with President V V Putin. Presidential Press Secretary D S Peskov confirmed the meeting, “Indeed, I can confirm that we plan talks tomorrow (6 February) between Putin, Merkel, and Hollande. Leaders of the three countries will discuss what they can do to help end the civil war in [Novorossiya] that has considerably intensified over the last few days and resulted in many casualties”.

Mixed signals out of the West… bellicosity from the USA… France pulls back… Germany tries to (unsuccessfully) steer a middle course between the two. This is why the West will fail in the Ukraine. It’s internally-divided. Do note that countries with relatively larger Galician diaspora populations are more hardline than those without such a pressure group. The Galician Uniates and “Ukrainian Orthodox” are sellouts and suck-ups to Langley (as the ROCOR/OCA duopoly once was… some elements in it still are)… that’s why the US Republican Party will use it as a political football to gain their approval (these groups have concentrations in Ohio and Pennsylvania, two states that always seem in contention in US presidential elections).
