    The Russian strategy is obvious. Have the EU pay the deadbeat Ukraine’s energy bills so as to insure a reliable gas supply to them.

    Putin has checkmated them all.

      I don’t think Putin’s that clever. The real problem is that the EU thinks that they’re clever.

    Hmmm, maybe if Putin stripped naked in the middle of Kiev and invited everyone there to flog him, then offered the Crimea and reparation payments for Russian aggression, then maybe that might be a good opening offer.
