  • ICDiplomacy

    Hello viewers, feel free to comment or submit questions to the panel.

  • Matt

    Mr. Kozin mentioned that “The West” should have a persuasive role in solving this issue. Is he suggesting that the economic sanctions placed on Russia have not been/will not be effective?

  • ICDiplomacy

    Barry: One question Peter D. Scott, a former Canadian diplomat, had emailed me for the entire panel was the following: “How can a discourse of this nature between civilians contribute to a positive outcome from the current crisis?”

  • Guest

    Your lips are so nice 🙂

    Question: What support does the Minsk agreement need so it can be successful?

  • John Smith Comment Testing

    A second question: how can educational institutes help resolve the conflict?

  • Bogdan Poprawski

    Would Ukraine as a federal republic solve Russia’s concern of NATO expanding into Ukraine? Or has the current failure of the Minsk Protocol eliminated the possibility of federalization?

  • martin smith

    why now? Why not 6 months ago or 6 months from now? What made conditions right for the annexation of Crimea and the mobilization of the Russian bear; ignoring (I believe) the Minsk accords?

  • Taras Byk

    I wonder if there is anyone else besides Yuriy who still believes in those ridiculous Russian myths about ‘civil war’ in Ukraine and ‘extremists’ who came to power in Ukraine…

  • Guest

    So, this is a “split country”?… At the last presidential and parliamentary elections, absolute majority of Ukrainians have demonstrated their clear pro-European civilisational choice.

    So, this is a “split country”? At the last presidential and
    parliamentary elections, absolute majority of Ukrainians have
    demonstrated their clear pro-European civilisational choice!

    • Taras Byk

      Here is the map.

      • Taras Byk

        To some reason, I cannot post the map which shows that absolute majority of Ukrainians voted for pro-European political parties in the latest elections.

  • Paul McArthur

    1st speaker – violence – evidence for Russian snipers at Maiden? Evidence for MH17 being downed by the rebels? Massacre at Odessa ?

    As a Canadian trying to find the truth, having been lied to so many times by Western mainstream media (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Global War on Terror), I have come to find RT’s propaganda much more believable than that of the Western MSM. Could it be possible that the legitimate Ukranian protestors with an historical legitimate grievance with Russia, can be blind to self serving Western propaganda and militaristic and violence promotion.

    • Taras Byk

      “Evidence for MH17 being downed by the rebels?”
      You are kidding, right?

  • Bogdan Poprawski

    My question would be how can non-governmental citizens make any difference in the US-Russia relationship when the governments’ policies are so viciously anti-Russia, when they have repeatedly resorted to defamation, bullying, condemning and trying to strangle Russia’s economy and government by dropping oil prices, gold prices, and arm twisting European majors to go along with their strangulations?
    How can peace ever be pursued in this environment?

    • Taras Byk

      You suggest the worl should support Russia so that it could invade not only Georgia and Ukraine, but Baltic countries and Poland as well?

  • Aila

    It is an incredibly informative discussion – and thank you to the panelists. It is most useful when you attempt to understand each other’s point of view and keep a good and productive discussion going.

  • Aila

    Also, what can citizens outside Ukraine and Russia do in general to help stop the conflict?

  • Taras Byk

    “Humanitarian convoy”???!!! Yuriy, stop lying, you know the truth!!! You know that those trucks are used to supply Russian weapons for the Russian soldiers and terrorist in Eastern Ukraine!!!

  • bob korol

    Your panelists did not raise the issue of the oustering of Yanakovich. It was illegal, and those opposed to his policies should have waited a month or so and vote in a new government instead of creating circucmstances involving a referendum with Eastern Ukraine clearly wanting a democratic expression of governance. Not liking that circumstance, the Kiev military was given the green light to invade those provinces and to kill their own people. Surely, Putin should not be villified by allowing humanitarian help being supplied to those poor people who did nothing to deserve being slaughtered.

    • Taras Byk

      Yeah, bob, keep on watching Russian propaganda…

  • Hana M.

    A new cold war, quite a bold statement!

  • William Hadrian

    I think the terms – “New Cold War” is all too often thrown around. Given the facts on the ground in that Russia is in a more vulnerable position than it was two decades ago and is willing to take more risks to ensure its own national interests- is it safe to still refer to this as a resumption of a ‘cold’ war, or something new and more ‘hot’?
