Eurasian Union is a project for conservation of identity of the peoples populating the historic Eurasian space in the new century and the new world. Eurasian integration is a chance for the territory of the former Soviet Union to become an independent center of global development, rather than [remain] the periphery of Europe or Asia,”  –Vladimir Putin, 2013.

Part One if wishes were horses…

So, this week has been swift, long, erratic and unexpected. But in the midst of this stream of events, some very interesting things started to become evident.

1. The main good news for March 7, 2014, for me, was a report that some person from Ukraine, a Mister Viktor Y. [Yanukovych], was hospitalized at one of the medical institutions in Moscow, in serious…

Opinions have divided to the extent that relatives and loved ones within one family do not understand and do not hear each other, and this in turn means that we have one foot already entered into a civil war, brother against…
