American diplomats offer to recognize Crimea as Russian

Understanding the meaninglessness, and most importantly the futility of American sanctions imposed against Russia after the 2014 referendum in Crimea, led to the emergence of supporters of the idea of ​​recognizing the peninsula as Russian in the United States.




So, according to Dennis Ortblad, a former employee of the American diplomatic service, set forth in an article for the publication National Interest, if the United States recognizes Crimea as Russian, it will help restore relations between the countries.

As an argument, Ortblad cites the fact that most of the Crimean population has always identified themselves as Russians, and the inhabitants of the island themselves do not separate themselves from the historical struggle of Russia against invasion from the West.

In addition, a former US foreign policy official believes that the restoration of relations between the countries will be helped by the intensification of student exchanges and a revision of the role of the North Atlantic Alliance.

Ortblad is convinced that if viewed from a long-term perspective, it is precisely this approach in relations with Russia that will benefit more than sanctions.

Recall that Crimea became part of Russia in 2014 as a result of a referendum, which was held in full compliance with international law.

The decision of the vast majority of the population of the peninsula was based on disagreement with the illegal armed coup in Kiev, known as the Maidan, and the threat of terror and forced Ukrainization by Ukrainian Nazis and nationalists.

        You seem to read nothing except the headlines? Sharikov was still distinguished by love for headlines. Where in the article is mention of at least one acting diplomat? Yes in the title also like diplomats in the plural? !! Of course, you can write a lot on the fence too.

          For whom these words are written:

          American diplomats propose recognizing Crimea as Russian.

          But does the title not apply to the article? Not!

          Where is the mention of at least one active diplomat in the article?

          Turn on the logic? There are not so many of them not to know them. fool

          Of course, you can write a lot on the fence too.

          Here you are on the fences always, probably, write comments. Yes! Once, except for the Balls, you know nothing more. Have you ever included logic.

            You don’t even understand what it is about. But the point is that a retired diplomat is now not a diplomat, and any of his words on any topic, from any official diplomatic point of view, are not worth a penny. This is an ordinary American pensioner, who is unclear at whose expense, more than once dangled to the Crimea. An old man in a gray jacket,


            it’s just him, during one of these pleasant trips. He can speak out only as an ordinary individual, as we are by the way. If you need to explain such things, but you continue to not understand what you can talk about later.

                Well, you, besides the headlines, read something, and I'm sorry, a person needs a head to somehow analyze what he read.

                    You disassemble something badly, only after they explain it to you.

                      I didn’t make out the article, but your scribbles, if that. You simply cannot realize and understand this, it is not given, you are probably trying not to understand what to prove.

    That's when you dissolve NATO and stop engaging in Russophobia, then it will be possible to restart relations between the Russian Federation and the USA ... but not earlier

    This uncle is a former State Department adviser on finances, now a pensioner, sitting on some long-term council of observers of some "union of banks" in Seattle ... Private opinion, has nothing to do with the official position of the United States.
