Obama issued a warning to Putin... Get out of Crimea or all diplomatic relations between USA and Russian will be no more. That's a pretty big statement and likely signals the return of Cold War. Also, Russia is not just after Ukraine, apparently after Ukraine Russia will try to capture part of Antarctica which is considered "international" but Russia wants it because it's full of oil.
Also, Obama is trying to heavily increase output of natural gas in US and over-saturate the demand causing prices of natural gas worldwide to drop. Russia makes shitload of money by selling natural gas to Europe, decrease in demand should force Russia to cut prices and will cause Russia to lose a lot of money. This will not go well with Putin. US can actually start selling natural gas to Europe at subsidized prices. It will be rough because there is no pipe going through but it's doable if US want to make EU independent from Russian energy source.
Another big thing... Ukraine's East part near Russia is full of natural gas. Russia actually gets a lot of natural gas from Ukraine, they ship Ukrainian gas to Europe but money go to Russia... If Ukraine becomes independent from Russian control, they can use Russian supply lines and directly sale natural gas to Europe. That's why US is so involved in Ukraine. it's a huge piece of the puzzle for global dominance. US can destroy Russian economy and send them back 20 years by simply making Ukraine part of Europe.
Putin is in Ukraine not to protect his people but to protect his investment and future of Russia. If Ukraine becomes part of Europe, Europe can become independent of Russia. Putin will lose all the leverage.
Congrats Arsen. Hope the first night was pleasant....
I'll come by and drop off the Liverpool jersey that my son has outgrown. I do have a Jonathan Stewart Jersey 2T if you want it. Mine son, Aiden, was 8lb 12oz at birth and now he's 3ft tall at 19mos. The best advice I've got is to not let your wife buy new clothes every week like I know shes going to want to.
Congrats man and best wishes to your new family.
Thanks bro. He got tittie hungry at night and nurses were in out the whole night to see how we're doing. We're leaving the hospital in 4 hours, only 34 hours after birth. Btw, we got jerseys from my family members but not Liverpool jersey. When I was a kid I had a Liverpool jersey so I got nothing against it!
