“For Russia, Ukraine is crucial in a historical way, in a psychological way (they call it “Little Russia”) and, above all, in a political, economic and strategic way. More importantly, Ukraine is a key country for Russia?s national security”

“The battle on the streets of Kiev, which has already claimed many lives and thousands of wounded, is a tragic fact which might lead to a civil war. Ukraine?s army is the largest in Europe after the Russian and can be deployed at any moment”

“Vladimir Putin?s strategy regarding Ukraine is the same than that regarding other countries of the former Soviet Union: an indirect control. Russia does not intend to govern Ukraine. But it wants a “negative” control: that Ukraine does not do what Russia does not want it to do”
