Today Putin's inner circle spent the day laughing at America's and EU's toothless sanctions.

I remember how my father cringed 20 yrs ago, when Ukraine signed away its nuclear weapons in exchange for guarantee of its borders. He shook his head and commented that this was a huge mistake, because none of the signers could be trusted to uphold their agreement. These were the same countries that had betrayed Ukraine in 1945. In the last few weeks the chickens have come home to roost.

Since Russia did not stick to its agreement to uphold Ukrainian territorial integrity, the treaty re Ukrainian Disarmament is null and void.

"In the future, no matter how the situation is resolved in Crimea, we need a much stronger Ukraine," he said. "If you have nuclear weapons people don't invade you."
Ukraine may have to go nuclear, says Kiev lawmaker

Hannia, your dad and my dad think alike. Whats amazing in all of this is that the Budapest agreement is no longer mentioned anywhere. It's as if it never existed and the other countries are just stepping in because they're kind. Which must mean that Ukraine gave away it's nukes for free.

Londongrad

U.K. regulators had already expressed discomfort with some aspects of London’s status as the preferred destination for capital from Russia and other emerging economies. The London Stock Exchange (LSE) last year introduced new rules designed to make it harder for foreign companies predominantly owned by a single shareholder to list in Britain.

The rules, which increased the influence of independent directors and made it harder for controlling investors to direct day-to-day operations, were greeted with caution by some London lawyers and bankers, who worried they could drive business elsewhere. Rosneft (ROSN), state-controlled gas export monopoly OAO Gazprom (OGZD), and steelmaker OAO Severstal (SVST) all have London listings.

The potential of being locked out of London by sanctions is a real threat to Russian businesses, said Sergei Ostrovsky, a partner at law firm Ashurst LLP in London.

“In the long run,” he said, “there are not many alternatives to the City of London for Russians to get all the financial services they need.”

Nick, you seem to not understand the context of my message, come back to Earth when you get a chance.

Nick, have you see what was found in offices of the Party of Regions? Stamps. Virtually every approval you would ever need for anything, they have the stamp for it. For instance, you need to be an offical observer for elections, "there is a stamp for that."
