Russia, Ukraine: Medvedev's Address

Foreign Policy's Passport links to the vlog post with president Medvedev's Ukraine address and the English-language translation of the transcript. Eternal Remont comments on some of Medvedev's statements: “[…] ‘The leadership in Kiev took an openly anti-Russian stand after the Georgia War.’ This is not allowed under Section 6 of the “Official Rules for Former Soviet Republics” handbook. (Ukraine, you should have received a copy at orientation.)”
