Russia to Offer Ukraine ‘Counterproposals’

•, by Jason Ditz
Western officials continue to reiterate demands for Russia to withdraw from the Crimean Peninsula and push the government there to cancel a planned referendum on secession. That’s not going to happen.
Rather, Russian officials say they are preparing “counterproposals” on the situation in the Ukraine, but say that the starting point for them would be the forced ouster of Ukraine’s elected government.
The US and other NATO officials see regime change as a done deal in the Ukraine, and simply want to force an end to the secessionist movement in regions of the nation, chiefly the Crimean Peninsula, which supported the elected government and oppose the new, pro-West government.
