Ukraine: UK rules out Russia trade curbs?

The government will not curb trade with Russia or close London's financial centre to Russians as part of any possible package of sanctions against Moscow, according to an official document.

The document, which was photographed as a senior official carried it into a meeting in Downing Street, says that "the UK should not support for now trade sanctions or close London's financial centre to Russians", while it confirms that ministers ARE considering - along with other EU countries - visa restrictions and travel bans on key Russian figures.

It also says that ministers should "discourage any discussion (eg at Nato) of contingency military preparations" and support "contingency EU work on providing Ukraine with alternative gas" and oil supplies "if Russia cuts them off".

Until now ministers have made no specific threats of action against Russia and Downing Street have stressed the need to keep open the possibility of de-escalating the crisis.

The prime minister said this afternoon that Russia would face "diplomatic, political, economic and other pressures" to send a "clear message" about its actions in the Ukraine.

No surprise there then. Money speaks loudest. coffeetime.gif

'Nazis' & 'Hypocrites': What Russia's saying on TV

Russian-language TV news monitored over the weekend by CNBC revealed two main themes about the crisis in Ukraine's Crimea that now threatens to spread to the rest of the country: Ukrainian protesters, commentators said, are radicals and neo-Nazis. And the Americans, along with their European allies, are hypocrites.

http://www.cnbc.com/id/101460690

Interestingly, I read an article on Swedish news where they interviewed a neo-Nazi from Sweden who along with at least 10 other Swedes went to Ukraine to "help the people". He said they're keeping the order in the absence of police, patrolling the streets. damned.gif

Chris Morris BBC News says there is strong language in the EU statement - Russia has violated the UN charter and its troops should withdraw to their bases in Crimea without delay. If that doesn't happen by Thursday, when EU leaders will meet in Brussels for an emergency summit, then talk will turn to possible sanctions, some of them diplomatic, some potentially economic.

Chris Morris BBC News adds that there are also differences of emphasis within the EU - several countries want to focus first on getting Russia and Ukraine to talk directly to each other in an effort to de-escalate tensions and avoid a military conflict.

US President Barack Obama says Russia has violated international law in Ukraine. Russia is on the "wrong side of history", he said, adding that the US would look at a series of economic and diplomatic sanctions that would isolate Moscow. Mr Obama was speaking from the White House before a meeting with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu.

EU foreign ministers statement on Ukraine.

The European Union strongly condemns the clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and
territorial integrity by acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces as well as the
authorisation given by the Federation Council of Russia on 1 March for the use of the
armed forces on the territory of Ukraine. These actions are in clear breach of the UN
Charter and the OSCE Helsinki Final Act, as well as of Russia's specific commitments to
respect Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity under the Budapest Memorandum of
1994 and the bilateral Treaty on Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership of 1997. These
actions are also a clear breach of the Ukrainian constitution which specifically recognises
the territorial integrity of the country and states that the Autonomous Republic of Crimea
can only organise referenda on local matters but not on the modification of the territorial
configuration of Ukrain

The EU calls on Russia to immediately withdraw its armed forces to the areas of their
permanent stationing, in accordance with the Agreement on the Status and Conditions of
the Black Sea Fleet stationing on the territory of Ukraine of 1997. Russia should also
without delay agree to the request by Ukraine to hold consultations, as foreseen in the
bilateral Treaty on Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership of 1997, and to take part in
urgent consultations among all signatories and adherents of the Budapest Memorandum of
1994.

The EU calls for a peaceful solution to the current crisis and full respect of the principles
of and obligations under international law. The EU remains ready to engage in and
promote any constructive dialogue with all parties aimed at reaching such a peaceful
solution and will continue its engagement in international facilitation efforts, working with
the UN, the OSCE, and other international actors, including on proposals for international
observation and mediation, and welcomes a possible OSCE fact finding mission in this
regard.

The Council recalls the EU's ambitions and openness to a relationship with Russia based
on mutual interest and respect and regrets that these common objectives have now been put
in doubt. The EU and those Member States who are participants of G8, have decided for
the time being to suspend their participation in activities associated with the preparations
for the G8 Summit in Sochi in June, until the environment comes back where the G8 is
able to have meaningful discussion. In the absence of de-escalating steps by Russia, the EU
shall decide about consequences for bilateral relations between the EU and Russia, for
instance suspending bilateral talks with Russia on visa matters as well as on the New
Agreement, and will consider further targeted measures. The Council decides to remain
permanently seized, in order to be in a position to take rapidly all necessary measures.


The European Union commends the measured response demonstrated so far by Ukraine .
The European Union stands by the efforts of the new Ukrainian Government to stabilise
the situation and pursue the course of reforms. The EU reaffirms the necessity of further
constitutional reform in Ukraine and to hold free, fair and transparent Presidential elections
with OSCE-ODIHR observation. The EU reaffirms the utmost importance of ensuring
inclusiveness at all levels of government by the Ukrainian authorities, including through
steps designed to reach out to all Ukrainian regions, population groups and to ensure full
protection of national minorities in accordance with Ukraine’s international commitments.
In this regard, it encourages Ukraine to draw on the expertise of the Council of Europe and
the OSCE.


The EU is ready to further pursue its efforts with the international community and
international financial institutions, especially the IMF, to assist Ukraine. To this end, the
EU and its Member States will lend their full support to an international assistance package
to address the urgent needs of Ukraine, based on a clear commitment to reforms. The
Council welcomes the efforts already undertaken by the Commission, which has
dispatched a fact-finding mission to Kyiv in parallel to the IMF mission. The Council also
encourages interested third countries to join such an international assistance package.
Recalling its conclusions of 20 February 2014, the Council agreed to swiftly work on the
adoption of restrictive measures for the freezing and recovery of assets of persons
identified as responsible for the misappropriation of State funds, and the freezing of assets
of persons responsible for human rights violations.

The Council reconfirms its offer of the Association Agreement, including a Deep and
Comprehensive Free Trade Area. The Agreement would bring opportunities for sustainable
economic development and prosperity to all the regions of Ukraine, including Crimea, as
well as to its neighbours. The Agreement does not constitute the final goal in EU-Ukraine
cooperation. The EU reiterates its commitment to enhance people to people contacts
between the EU and Ukraine, i.a. through the visa liberalisation process, in line with
agreed conditions in the framework of the VLAP.

The Council calls on High Representative Catherine Ashton to continue her contacts with
all parties with a view to contributing to a peaceful resolution of this crisis."

The Ukrainian border guard tells Reuters that a checkpoint at the ferry crossing between Russia and Crimea has been seized by three truckloads of armed men after they crossed from the Russian side.
Acting Ukrainian Defence Minister Ihor Tenyukh says that about 16,000 Russian servicemen are currently on Ukrainian territory, the Interfax-Ukraine news agency reports, as seen by BBC Monitoring. The agency quotes Mr Tenyukh as telling the Inter TV channel that about 5,500 Russian special-purpose troops had been relocated to Ukraine.

Former Ukraine leader calls for 'strongest means' against Russia if diplomacy fails

If diplomacy fails to persuade Russia to withdraw its forces from the Ukrainian region of Crimea, the world should apply the "strongest means" on Russia, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview Monday.

Amanpour asked Tymoshenko if she was calling for the West to use military force against Russia.

She would not directly answer the question, saying that she "cannot solve this issue," but she issued an appeal to help Ukraine.

"I am asking all the world, personally every world leader, to use all the possibilities in order to avoid Ukraine losing Crimea."
