The Russian Side of the Story

It is very refreshing to see that, unlike most other Western media, The Guardian gives a glimpse of the Russian side of the story. Here are few points from the article:

- Russian speakers are understandably alarmed after the new Kiev authorities scrapped a law allowing Russian as an official language in their areas.

- At the back of Pentagon minds, no doubt, is the dream that a US navy will one day replace the Russian Black Sea fleet in the Crimean ports of Sevastopol and Balaclava.

- Since independence, every poll in Ukraine has shown a majority against Nato membership, yet one after another the elites who ran the country until 2010 and who are now back in charge ignored the popular will.

- The deposed Viktor Yanukovych ... persuaded parliament to make non-alignment the cornerstone of the country's security strategy, on the pattern of Finland, Ireland and Sweden.
