A major problem in Russia, Ukraine and the world is President Putin’s complete and absolute control over all aspects of the government. He has no institution or people able to check this power, and thus the bully man so enjoys speaking to the world in tones that insist it is either his way or no way. Speaking before a pro-Kremlin youth camp, the boss made clear, that “Russia is a one of the leading nuclear powers,” and “it is best not to mess with us.” In any language these words are a threat, but hopefully, not a promise. Putin has decided what will take place in Ukraine, and it that government either agrees with his decision or it faces the prospect of more Russian soldiers entering the country.
What then for the world?
1. The European Union and the United States of America must announce a complete boycott of the purchase of goods from Russia as well as the sale of such products.
2. The United States must admittedly announce it will sell oil to European nations as well as gas.
3. Both the US and the European Union must cease allowing planes to fly to Russia or allow passengers from that country to land in their countries.
4. Leaders of China, the US, and the European Union must meet with an open agenda. Make clear to Putin that no force will be employed against Russia, but that country will become an isolated entity in the world. No sanctions will be lifted if Russia forces its way into eastern Ukraine.
Make Putin explain economic chaos to his business community!
