Ukraine crisis

But, but, but, why do the charts not show the Ruble down against the greenback? Did you answer a little too hastily friend?

Not according to the Economist I didn't answer too soon. Oh I forgot, you get your info from RT.

Beware, the following link is not for the uninitated. It's another commie lie because it shows the Ruble nearly unchanged since the first business day in January.

Commie pinko lies, and living right here in B.C.. Why, they've infiltrated the universities now! What next, the churches and the homes of Canadians?

My topic all differ in a significant way so unless I'm ordered by the forum's admin or mods to do what you demand, I'm just going to ignore it.

Don't worry, looks like it's already been done. You didn't need to lift a finger! :)

Must be a forum glitch of some kind? No notification from the mods at all. If I could remember the title of my latest thread I would restart it.

Give me a hint and if the admin or the mods don't provide an explanation then I'm sure the won't mind be bringing it back.

Please, no hint's everybody, OK?

Just kiddin. If there was a thread eliminated I'm going to hear about it from the admin. I'm now wondering if I should start a new thread for different topic or take a chance of introducing a new topic on an old thred that wouldn't be suitable? What's a boy to do?

In the meantime, what's your advice for posting a bunch of quotes of the warmongers who lied to get the Iraq war?New thread? Use one of the old ones? In any case, it's really good stuff and it's being brought up now because of what ISIS is doing in Iraq and why the US warmongers are responsible.

Coming soon to a theater near you!

See, you didn't even need a hint. And I can't wait to hear how the US is running ISIS. Should be a hoot and we all like a few laughs now and then.

Capitol flight from Russia around 60 billion for Q1 of this year, stock market down 20%, Ruble down 8% against the buck, interest rates up from 5.5 to 7.5%, IMF forecast of growth down from 1.3 to 0.2%.

The "Capitol" is a building in Washington DC that holds the House and the Senate. It does not fly.

Ruble is low now. What keeps it from falling is interventions of Russia Central Bank. They spend large amounts of currency to keep Ruble within good looking "corridor". It's a matter of principle for Putin. They have large reserves.

I'm entertained by your excuses for why the Ruble isn't low as on guard for thee suggested here:

........., Ruble down 8% against the buck,...............

I mean, it could ease his pain knowing that you're volunteering reasons for his ignorance of the facts!

Russian Central Bank (100% government owned) currency interventions to keep Ruble afloat are widely discussed in Russian Internet.

E.g, http://bankir.ru/novosti/s/tsentrobank-rf-prodal-v-ponedelnik-do-10-mlrd-dlya-podderzhki-rublya-10069069

$10 Bln a day.

Russia can afford it.

He made the assertion on the Ruble and he was WRONG!! Your excuses and halfassed explanations aren't going to make it any better for him now. Wrong is wrong. And fwiw, if Russia can afford billions to prop up the Ruble then what more do I need to say about WRONG!

Are we supposed to now think that all countries except Russia are permitted to prop up their currencies?

Tell you friend to hop on another band wagon if he wants to go toe to toe with me. This one is settled!

US Ministry of Propaganda: Russia is bombing houses of the people in the Southern Ukraine and causing residents to flee in the thousands now! And the few deaths caused by Yanukovich fighting back is a lot different because, because, well just because the American people will swallow it and a few braindead Canadians will too!

And now the Ukraine's defence minister is vowing to retake the Crimea militarily! LOL

Should they even try after the people made it very clear that they chose Russia?

Can you tell propaganda from a lie? The guy didn't tell that. Though, the Russian propaganda is a big and only lie.

Check your grammar before you post ASIP. If English is your second language you're not doing too bad but some of it is impossible to understand.

English IS his second language, but I find his posts a lot more understandable and coherent than your posts.

Russian intellience service kidnaps Ukrainian pilot.

So it seems during an attack on a rebel checkpoint a couple of Russian "journalists" were killed. And somehow or other, a Ukrainian army pilot who was involved in the fighting wound up being kidnapped and spirited across the border into Russia, where she is to be 'tried' for her crimes.

And what does Russia say? Well, in the spirit of openness and honesty the Russians are becoming known for the Russian government says she 'voluntarily' crossed the border into Russia. Uhhhhhhh. okaaayyy.

The battle continues with ethnic ties superseding line on a map. Those oblasts in East Ukraine will remain as a kind of buffer between Kiev and Moscow. Even if Kiev takes those areas militarily I believe the continuing ethnic unrest would not be worth the troops and money to keep the occupants in line with Kiev. It would be interesting to see if then the UN would put peace keepers in that area if asked.
