Last quote by Piotr Smolar

Separatism is an old sea serpent, especially in the region of Crimea, which, let's remember, only became a part of Ukraine recently, in 1954, thanks to Khrushchev. There is, effectively, considerable tension today in this region, but it mustn't be exaggerated into a disaster scenario. It's not certain that such a departure from Ukraine and a realisation of this threat of separation would really be in Russia's interests. Again, things are more complicated than that on the ground.feedback

Piotr Smolar has most recently been quoted in an article called Is crisis-hit Ukraine moving towards separatism?. Piotr Smolar said, “It's a two-track reaction. Some of the surface reactions were fairly predictable. For example, the Kremlin checked the readiness of its troops in case there's major trouble. There were also pretty strong statements from Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev this week saying he didn't consider the new authorities in Kyiv as truly legitimate. But President Putin isn't saying anything. We could say these events don't suit them at all, but that for the moment they are exercising a sort of restraint, to see how things develop.”.
