For the first time in the history of the EU an official communique of the member states is explicitly rejected by a member state after being issued. Greece has vehemently rejected the latest anti-Russian statement of the EU blaming Russia for the shelling and killings of civilians in Mariupol. As I already published, this was a false flag attack of the Kiev nazi thugs to put the blame one more time on the Russian insurgents and hide the fact that they were the ones who broke the ceasefire and started with the shelling and killing of innocent civilians.
I knew that this incident will have huge repercussions for the future political development in Europe and worldwide as analysed in more depth in this comprehensive article:
My journalist instinct coupled with the constant presence of my HS told me this immediately and that is why I was adamant to present irrevocable facts that the Kiev troops were responsible for the casualties in Mariupol and elsewhere in Eastern Ukraine (read also here). How could it be otherwise?
Can you imagine that the insurgents who are risking their lives to liberate their compatriots from the Nazi occupation of their country will begin to kill their own citizens especially now when they are so victorious on the battlefield? How stupid do the criminal Western cabal believe the people are? And how insidious and desperate the European plutocrats and eurocrats in Brussels must be to even dare issue such a communique when they know that they have lost the war against Russia and that the chicken will come home to roost.
The new Greek government has started well, really very well and better than I expected it. Let us hope that it will keep up the line of opposition against the criminal EU cabal in Brussels. Then other countries like Hungary, Austria, Slovakia and Czech republic will follow as this recent eclat has already revealed. When this happens, it is not a long way when the quick collapse of the whole EU structure and its policy of docile American vassals will occur.
Russia must be now only patient, which it knows best, and just wait until the Western front will fully collapse, now that the Ukrainian proxies are being completely defeated by the Russian patriots in Eastern Ukraine.
The next days will be crucial and much more will happen with the speed of light. Keep an eye on these events. Especially if the EU idiots decide to exclude Russia from the SWIFT payment system, which the Russians already warned will be a declaration of war and their response will be “nuclear” and without any limits at the economic front.
New Greek Government Furious over EU ‘Unequivocal’ anti-Russia Statement
RT, January 28, 2015
The new Greek government has spoken out against the EU partners over the statement that lays the blame for Saturday’s fatal attack on the Ukrainian city of Mariupol on Russia. Hungary, Slovakia, and Austria voiced similar objections earlier.
The government, headed by Prime Minister Alexis Tripras, said in a press release on Tuesday that “the aforementioned statement was released without the prescribed procedure to obtain consent by the member states, and particularly without ensuring the consent of Greece.”
“In this context, it is underlined that Greece does not consent to this statement,” Tsipras added.
He voiced his “discontent” in a phone call to EU foreign relations chief Federica Mogherini.
The EU statement was published on Tuesday morning, saying that all 28 EU leaders had agreed that Russia bears “responsibility” for a rocket attack on the city of Mariupol that left 30 people dead on Saturday.
Brussels objected that the Greek government had been informed about the statement on Russia and Ukraine, but no one had contradicted it until Tuesday.
European Council President Donald Tusk initiated the EU statement, and claimed he had called Tsipras and the “sherpas” – top officials taking care of EU issues in each leader’s office.
One EU diplomat reportedly said that Greece had attempted to remove the line blaming Russia for the Mariupol killing. Also, Austria, Hungary, and Slovakia tried, and failed, to “water down” the communiqué, the EU Observer website stated. It’s the first time that such a situation – a retroactive abjuration of an EU line – has happened, EU Council official

Foreign affairs analyst Serja Trifkovich told RT that other countries might follow suit and oppose Brussels’ policies on the Ukrainian crisis.
“It’s very difficult in the EU to break the ranks. Now that Greece has made a move, I confidently expect that the Hungarians in particular, but perhaps also Slovakia and Cyprus, will [find] the courage to say no to the dictate from Brussels.”
The EU statement on Russia and Ukraine also urged for more sanctions, for considering “any appropriate action” against Moscow.
One of the measures being mulled is to block Russia from the global interbank SWIFT payment system.
Economist Max Fraad Wolff told RT that this would be a drastic measure.
“Let’s be fair and honest here: if you’re cut off from SWIFT, your ability to have any kind of normal business flow with the global commerce community is hampered.”
However, what he envisages is that “cooler heads will prevail” and that “we won’t see Russia cut off from the SWIFT system,” as it is “in very few parties’ long-term interests.”
