(KIEV, Ukraine) - The struggle over Ukraine's bid to join NATO intensified Friday with a Polish expression of support for Kiev and a Russian offer of more cooperation in Afghanistan if the alliance shuts out both Ukraine and Georgia.
The summit is turning into a critical test for the alliance, which is split on the issue of Ukraine and Georgia. The United States, Canada and Eastern European members are backing them. Germany is leading Western European opposition and warns that granting the membership plan would torpedo hopes of improving relations with Russia.
Our meeting today confirmed that ... friendship between Poland and Ukraine is not just a motto, but it is a fact," Tusk said. He added that since both prime ministers assumed office at the end of last year, bilateral ties have acquired "new breath, new wings."
We understand why Ukrianinas welcomed Germans with flowers ... during WWII ... they thought Germans are better than Soviets ... once again they were wrong ...
At the peak of the genocide, which was in March 1933 according to Prof. Conquest, Ukrainians were dying at the rate of 25,000 per day, 1,000 per hour or 17 every minute. Estimates of the total deaths vary from 5 to 10 million but 7 million is the accepted figure. This was almost one-quarter of the population of Ukraine.
Ok I would like to notice that international situation changes dramaticly.
I think that we shouldn't sell Ukrainians for Russians. I think they should have the right to have free choice.
Russia+submissive Ukraine is problem for EU and USA and nightmare for Poland.
Polish people are the most loved nation on Ukraine. I think that Polish people don't love Ukrainians (because of some reasons) ... we have practical view on this issue and leting Russians to decide about Ukrainians is horrible mistake.
They are not mature nation and they need more time, all I want to say is that we shouldn't close doors for them just because Russians say so.
