    But the fact is: people die every day. Two days ago Ukrainian troops shelled school in Donetsk, killing 2 boys, 4 severely injured. Today few civilians killed again. Where is 'civilized' world? The West would rather impose sanctions on Russia which has taken 700,000+ (officially! UNO report) refugees from that area. Have western countries taken any? None!

    I know this is true and I know very well how hypocritical western governments are, because your story is just a deja-vu for me.

    The recent evolution of Russia's economy has suffered from "Dutch-disease", while Norway is the best example of handling oil revenue to the long term benefit of its economy. Falling oil prices may have a greater effect on Russia's intentions than sanctions.

    Is that the same as having placed the You-know-whose son (who was kicked out of Navy becouse of drugs) to Ukraines top energy company?

    Jarmo, the West does not want to see it. As well as they do not want to see whom the West is supporting in Ukraine. The video shows a lot of photos of open Nazi hired by the new Ukrainian government as 'law enforcement' soldiers. In any civilized county those will not be allowed to wear special force uniform and been awarded with medals by ministers and president. And these photos are only small part of the iceberg. People in Ukraine are now terrified throughout the country; those thugs are allowed to kill anyone and the regular police will just walk away. Those Nazi regiments are now located in every city in Center, East and South, excerpt those controlled by the rebels. The civilians have to take arms and/or rely on Russia for protection...
