Weird how history repeats? Isn't it? Then there are the Kurds & Israel, yet another special 'relationship'?
Recall two previous posts on the lack of border demarcation?
You can access them both at the link below
Does the Ukraine occupy Russian Territory? Ukraine attempts one sided demarcation
We have had conflicting reports regarding Ukraine's planned buffer zone? And curiously the Globe & Mail was reporting on the buffer zone and then censored the coverage???
What the heck is up with that?!
100 km zone
Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko proposes to create a 100 kilometers-wide buffer zone along the Ukrainian-Russian border, Valery Chaly, a deputy chief of the presidential administration staff told a news briefing Friday.Valery Chaly- member of the British Ukrainian Society
“We’re saying today that a buffer zone of about a hundred kilometers wide should be created along the border,” Chaly said as he spoke about the details of Poroshenko’s peace plan.Direct quote? 100 km buffer zone?
Or 10 km buffer zone?
As the Oman Observer observes calls for a buffer zone pretty much moot the 'peace plan' proposal
Right now, it seems to me the direct quote from the Poroshenkos' man takes precedence.Details of the proposal to create a 10-km buffer zone, contained in a photographed copy of the 14-point plan and carried in Ukrainian media, were not spelled out. It was not clear if the whole of the proposed demilitarised no-man’s land would be on Ukraine’s side of the border or part of it on the Russian side. It was also not clear what the status of people living in border areas would be.
I am a big fan of direct quotations, personally.
Interesting that the Globe & Mail, affectionately known in Canada as the Mop and Pail, sanitized Ukraines land grab- Keep in mind Canada is a NATO nutty nation.
The Globe and Mail-Details of the proposal to create a 10-km buffer zone, contained in a ...
When one goes to the actual news article, there is no mention of the buffer zone whatsoever!
( I have the edited story saved)
Reuters Africa is still reporting on the buffer zone proposal- Ukraine peace plan to call for 10-km buffer zone on Russia border
Discussion in previous post regarding this news:Israel accepts first delivery of disputed Kurdish pipeline oil
The port authority at Ashkelon declined to comment. Securing the first sale of oil from its independent pipeline is crucial for the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) as it seeks greater financial independence from war-torn Iraq. But the new export route to the Turkish port of Ceyhan, designed to bypass Baghdad's federal pipeline system, has created a bitter dispute over oil sale rights between the central government and the Kurds.
