Today i read a proposal by multi biljonair Musk, that would in his view be a start of peaceful coexistence between Russia and Ukraine. It stated the following:
1-New referenda in 4 regions under UN supervision, 2- Chrimea stays Russian, 3-Garanteed water supplie to Chrimea and last but not least 4- Ukraine remains neutral.
First of all mr Musk appears not to be a fine psychologist. Who would think Ukrainians and Ethnic Russians will peacefully live together for two generations to come is very much naive, mildly put. Will those that fled first be able to return before the vote? And after the vote, will then the ukrainians or the russians move out of the region?
Second, as it maybe a mistake made by Khrushchev to donate Chrimea to Ukraine, it was a peacefull gesture. Quite something else was the taking back by force. No way, they, the Russians, should have their way.
Third, considering the first two No Can Do’s, a non-proposal.
Fourth, Russia is not a democratic state. There can be no garantee as to the quality of the next leadership. Ukrain will never be put in this threatening position again. Besides it has already stated that there will not be negociations with the present leadership of Russia. Mr Musk should be continuing at what he does best.
