The "Ukraine Situation" Explained In One Map

Tyler Durden's picture

Sadly, everything you need to know about the crisis in Ukraine in one worrisome map which summarizes all the relevant "red lines."

Given this - is there any doubt this will not end with peaceful resolution.
As Martin Armstrong warned this morning:
BOTH the USA and EU will now fund the rebels as Russia will fund Yanukovych. At the political level, Ukraine is the pawn on the chessboard. The propaganda war is East v West. However, those power plays are masking the core issue that began with the Orange Revolution – corruption. Yanukovych is a dictator who will NEVER leave office. It is simple as that. There will be no REAL elections again in Ukraine. This is starting to spiral down into a confrontation that the entire world cannot ignore.

Tyler Durden. Really? So the U.S. never protects "its" assets (which btw is everything in the world, you know). Durden thinks the corruption is one-sided? How can he when his source admits both sides are funding this mess?

I mainly posted this for the map. I lived in Europe for 9 years, and people here in the U.S. don't know much about the natgas situation and how Russia can just cut off the supply if they feel like it, like they sorta did once over pricing.
