via Excerpts from interview to German TV channel ARD – President of Russia.
Personally, I found President Putin‘s remarks insightful. For me, he raises valid concerns about the Ukraine. I worry about the Ukraine’s sustainability from an economic, social and political perspective.
The EU and the IMF have given billions of Dollars of financial help to the Ukraine but I question whether these debts will be repaid? – the risk is high with little evidence of effective risk mitigation strategy.
Let me ask an open question:
Surely, it would make more sense for the EU to give Southern Europe the billions for investment, rather than shoring up the Ukraine which is not even an EU member?
