There it was, trundling into view like the latest Police Academy instalment. The west’s response to Crimea’s reunification with Russia 4 years ago. Good ole Britain’s own Boris got the ball rolling last week even, jumping the gun on all the #CrimeaisUkraine antics, with his usual hadn’t-read-the-memo bluster, containing so many omissions and errors that the Russian Embassy in the UK just sat back and picked them off one by one.
Back to the #CrimeaisUkraine and there was the to-be-expected offerings from Ukrainian embassies around the world –
Here actually not a bad reflection of some of the work done by Russian in stopping ‘pro-Ukrainian’ acts of terrorism on the peninsula.
The rest just blah-blah propaganda, as per….
Here, Ukrainian’s foreign minister Klimkin thanking Boris for his above support, followed by Lithuania –
Latvia, even more, clearly keen to show the USA that all the money they’ve spent promoting western propaganda in Latvia, is reaping the results –
Back to the UK, with UK ambassador to Ukraine, Judith Gough tweeting this out, with the presumably unintentional side-effect of making it look like there was no one either on the stage, or in the audience, for Chubarov’s offering.
The UK to the OSCE meanwhile, took the most risible part of Boris’ Crimea-flail and served it up as a self-standing tweet –
Noble words indeed, which would have far more credibility if the UK hadn’t been one of the foremost proponents of bombing Serbia in 1999 to create the US, NATO enclave of Kosovo.
And to Kiev, where the rally held there to show ‘solidarity’ for Crimea came out something like this –
A few dozen protesters grimly clutching propaganda placards written in English, for the benefit of western media. Such a forced, limp show of ‘solidarity’, it seems cruel to even point out the difference between that, and the ‘victory parade in Ukrainian Sevastopol’ promised to Ukrainians back in 2014….
So, another year, another anniversary of Crimea’s reunification with Russia, sees the west in the stable with Ukraine, trying to rather pathetically piss on all the straw, with the horse having long bolted, never to return.
