Comment on the Situation in Ukraine from Lviv Women NGO
We, as women's NGO calls on the community to take more strong power actions to the Heads of States who violate international treaties and do not respect the sovereignty of other countries.
A letter send by Iryna Trokhym, our friend from Lviv
Today in Ukraine, the same scenario is repeated which provoked by Russia in Georgia in 2008. Imperial Russian leader's habits do not allow citizens to live safely in Eastern Europe and beyond. Russia has repeatedly violated every possible international agreement. Russian impunity from the side of European Countries and the United States allow it to do so today.
While many EU countries and the United States convicted Russia's actions in Georgia in 2008, however no serious economic or political sanctions have been imposed. Mechanisms of applying soft power is completely ineffective for the person (do not even want to use the word president) who violate basic democratic laws in their own country and in relations with all the rest of the world .
Putin could not admit his defeat - when democracy finally won in Ukraine (Yanykovych run from the country) - and began to be a model for democratic changes in Russia. This is what scared Putin the most and he began intervention in Ukraine.
Previously, Putin used dirty tricks in Ukraine: imported Russian citizens who abet society in the Eastern part of the country to the separation from Ukraine; Russian resident hang the flag of his country on the building of regional administration during the demonstration and it was shown in russian mass-media as the will of the citizens of the East Part of Ukraine.
Russia completely mired in false information : Russian media constantly present population of Western Ukraine as hostile towards the East Ukrainian people, they absolutely discredit the idea of the “Majdan Revolution” against corruption and struggle for the European choice - to a hostile confrontation between Western and South- Eastern Ukraine; he flirts with the Russians, residing in Ukraine – promised them financial assistance, while most of the population of Russia live in poverty and unemployment. Instead there are promoted vivid life in Moscow and Petersburg - as the most expensive cities in the world .
Yesterday, March 2, 2014 the residents of cities in Eastern Ukraine came to the demonstration and appealed to Putin that people do not need his "help”, Russian-speaking population can speak their language in Ukraine, and they do not want a dictatorship in Ukraine, what allowed the Russians.
We, as women's NGO calls on the community to take more strong power actions to the Heads of States who violate international treaties and do not respect the sovereignty of other countries. After all, we do not know where can lead the intentions of person with "Napoleon" complex, which have felt that he never be punished ...
As, appeared in the last minute, there are no people who would follow the international law in Russian Council either – they just registered a Law of accession of Crimea to Russia.
