For your consideration.

Canada pays $1.6 million to ship $5 million worth of surplus gear to Ukraine
David Pugliese, Ottawa Citizen
Some former diplomats have pointed out the Conservative government�s support is more geared towards domestic politics than international affairs in that Canada�s more than one million Ukrainian-Canadians are potentially a game-changing voting bloc in October�s federal election.

An Ottawa Citizen analysis last year identified 12 ridings where such voters could help sway the outcome of an election. In six of the ridings, Conservative candidates won victories in 2011 of fewer than 1,000 votes and in some cases just several hundred votes.

Stephen Cohen, contributing editor to The Nation, was interviewed yesterday on the theJohn Batchelor Show, WABC radio in New York City. They discuss the news of a ceasefire agreement in eastern Ukraine for a cessation of hostilities beginning September 1 and the recent meeting in Berlin on August 24 of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Fran�ois Hollande and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

According to Cohen, by summoning Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Fran�ois Hollande made clear that the U.S.-backed government in Kiev, not Moscow, is blocking implementation of their Minsk plan for negotiating an end to the Ukrainian civil war.

By publicly rejecting several premises of U.S. policy, Dr. Henry Kissinger recently breached the political-media orthodoxy that Putin�s Russia alone is responsible for the new cold war.

Listen here to the August 25, 2015 interview with Stephen Cohen.
