S’inspirer du modèle hongkongais pour résoudre la crise ukrainienne

Le traité concédant le territoire de Hong-Kong aux autorités britanniques pour une durée de 99 ans, un modèle de résolution possible de la crise ukrainienne ?

Alors que le coût politique et économique du conflit dans l’est de l’Ukraine ne cesse d’augmenter (sans évoquer les souffrances endurées par les populations vivant dans l’est de l’Ukraine et, dans une moindre mesure, en Crimée), la nécessité de trouver une solution à la crise ukrainienne devient de plus en plus pressante.

Germany | Yatsenyuk’s Ukrainian His-Story and Merkel’s Sound of Silence

During an appearance on the German State-owned TV channel ARD on January 8, 2015, Ukrainian PM Arseny Yatsenyuk interpreted the advance of Soviet troops via the German occupied Ukraine and toward the German capital Berlin in 1945 as “the USSR’s attack on Ukraine and Germany”. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and German government officials wouldn’t comment on Yatsenyuk’s view of history.
