Four-Party Agreement on Ukraine
by Stephen Lendman

On April 17, Russian, US, EU and Ukrainian foreign ministers met in Geneva. Discussion focused on deescalating Ukrainian crisis conditions.

A joint document was agreed on. It’s not worth the paper it’s written on. Washington’s word isn’t its bond. Its history reflects one broken promise after another.
Don’t expect this time to be different. Ukraine’s crisis may escalate. Perhaps the worst of all possible outcomes will follow. The fullness of time will tell.

Following discussions Sergei Lavrov explained an agreement reached, saying:

All parties must refrain from “violence, intimidation, or provocative actions.”
“Participants strongly condemned and rejected all expressions of extremism, racism and religious intolerance, including anti-semitism.”

Agreement “calls for an immediate commencement of a broad national dialogue which must be inclusive, transparent and accountable.”

More NATO Forces for Eastern Europe
by Stephen Lendman

US-led NATO threatens world peace. It’s a global killing machine. It prioritizes militarism and war. It threatens humanity in the process.

On April 16, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said:

“We have just taken further measures to respond to the crisis in Ukraine.”

“We call on Russia to be part of the solution. To stop destabilising Ukraine, pull back its troops from the borders and make clear it doesn’t support the violent actions of well armed militias of pro-Russian separatists.”

NATO deployed warplanes to Eastern Europe provocatively. US navy vessels patrol Black Sea waters. France plans sending one of its own to join them.

Rasmussen announced stepped up measures. He called doing so “reinforc(ing) our collective defence and demonstrat(ing) the strength

Kiev Violates Four-Party Agreement
by Stephen Lendman

The ink wasn’t even dry. On April 17, deal terms was struck. A previous article discussed them. Hold the cheers. They’re not worth the paper they’re written on.

Washington negotiates duplicitously. Promises made are systematically broken. Don’t expect this time to be different.

Kiev’s illegitimate putschists didn’t surprise. They violated agreement terms. They did so straightaway. They acted with full US support. More on this below.

On April 17, a joint US/EU/Russia/Ukraine statement said the following:

“The Geneva meeting on the situation in Ukraine agreed on initial concrete steps to de-escalate tensions and restore security for all citizens.

All sides must refrain from any violence, intimidation or provocative actions. The participants strongly condemned and rejected all expressions of extremism, racism and religious intolerance, including anti-semitism.

All illegal armed groups must be disarmed; all il
