Petro Poroshenko, the president of Ukraine, waved a white flag, gave in to Putin’s demand and let rebels in Eastern Ukraine control their own region. We might call this ‘The Treaty of Donetsk and Luhansk.’

It is a capitulation anyway you slice it: for Petro Proshenko, that’s.

When Ukraine soldiers ‘retreated’ in large scale from the battlefield in Eastern Ukraine against Russia-backed rebels, Petro was, all of a sudden, out of option except going back to the negotiation table.

Weak country has no diplomacy. Period.

Putin probably told Petro when they met behind closed doors that Russia would help Petro staying in power but Petro had to give up the Eastern portion of the country.

Capitulation! Surrender! Waving a white flag! The outcome is the same.

Take the deal while you still can, Petro because American won’t help you; EU won’t help you and UK won’t help you either. Petro also knows that all sanctions in the world won’t stop Putin at getting what he wants.

China was in the same situation more than a century ago. There was nothing China could do back then just like Ukraine is now except giving up territory for temperary relief.

這叫 ‘賠了夫人又折兵。割地賠款息事寧人也.’
