American diplomacy in the Ukraine crisis was summed up earlier this month by State Department senior official Victoria Neuland, a leading neocon: “F….k Europe.” On Friday, Europe responded by brokering a sensible compromise to Ukraine’s increasingly dangerous crisis just as the army was about to intervene. If the pact holds, Ukraine’s president Viktor Yanukovich will relinquish some of his powers, a unity government will be formed, elections held, and jailed protestors freed.

The fate of imprisoned nationalist leader, Yulia Timoshenko, remains unclear. Russia accused NATO on Thursday of using the Ukraine crisis to justify its existence by creating an imaginary threat, while the alliance’s head urged Moscow to pull its troops back from the Ukrainian border.

NATO to Putin’s list of bashing. “We see that military resources of certain states and members of the NATO alliance are being built up right by our borders and in contravention of previously reached agreements — We cannot allow ourselves to remain indifferent to the obvious ‘muscle-flexing’,” Putin has been quoted as saying.

Here’s the best part. The Russian President also said the response to the NATO problem will be that strategic nuclear forces — which control Russia’s long-range nuclear missiles — should be on call “to deliver a swift and adequate response to any aggressor”.
