Article by Vladimir Putin ”On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians“

Article by Vladimir Putin ”On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians“

An interesting read. Kinda' lets you know where the author's mind is.

http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/66181

"During the recent Direct Line, when I was asked about Russian-Ukrainian relations, I said that Russians and Ukrainians were one people – a single whole. These words were not driven by some short-term considerations or prompted by the current political context. It is what I have said on numerous occasions and what I firmly believe. I therefore feel it necessary to explain my position in detail and share my assessments of today's situation...."

Kinda reminds me of similar thought by a guy in 1938

While he should embarass many other heads of state who can't lay down their country's history anything close to that, I notice he (out of chronology) pretty much dusts over 1932-1933 famines in a general fashion.

So, which battlefield is being prepped?
