Description

A guardian comment piece recently wrote about the impact that money and power in the City of London has on geopolitics, and how it could potentially stop the UK going along with EU wide sanctions. Read the piece here: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/mar/04/o-10-ukraine-sanctions-gaffe-city-profits-diplomacy-britain-russia and see what you think

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT ? UKRAINE & RUSSIA WERE BOTH PART OF THE USSR UNTIL 1991 THE VERY COMPLEX SITUATION HAPPENING IN THE UKRAINE THE USE OF SANCTIONS (STOPPING TRADE) TO ‘PUNISH’ OTHER COUNTRIES THAT THERE IS A LOT OF MONEY AND POWER IN THE CITY OF LONDON THE HISTORIC AND POLITICAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN UKRAINE AND RUSSIA THE IDEA THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN COUNTRIES WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO ACT LIKE WORLD POLICEMAN & THAT THIS POWER THAT MONEY CREATES CAN INFLUENCE WHAT POLITICIANS DO A LITTLE BIT OF CONTEXT ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON UKRAINIAN PEOPLE WANT DIFFERENT THINGS. SOME LIKE THE EU & SOME LIKE RUSSIA RUSSIA STILL HAS A LOT OF INFLUENCE IN UKRAINE, THROUGH CULTURE, AID, GAS AND MORE NO 10'S UKRAINE GAFFE SHOWS CITY PROFITS COME BEFORE PRINCIPLED DIPLOMACY CLICK HERE THIS IS SUCH BIG NEWS IS BECAUSE OF THE HISTORY OF RUSSIAN INTEREST IN COUNTRIES AROUND IT (LIKE LATVIA, ESTONIA, BELARUS & GEORGIA). PUTIN (THE RUSSIAN PRESIDENT) IDEALLY WANTS UKRAINE (AND SOME OTHERS) TO BE UNDER RUSSIA’S DIRECT INFLUENCE FOR ORIGINAL http:/www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/mar/04/o-10-ukraine-sanctions-gaffe-city-profits-diplomacy-britain-russia IT IS ILLEGAL IN A PART OF SOUTH UKRAINE CALLED CRIMEA WAS GIVEN TO UKRAINE IN 1954 BY RUSSIA PROTESTS ABOUT JOINING THE EU TURNED VIOLENT IN JANUARY 2014 & IN MARCH THE PRESIDENT FLED RUSSIA HAS SENT TROOPS INTO CRIMEA & THE EU AND USA ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT IT IS VERY COMPLICATED, THOUGH. A LOT OF UKRAINIANS, ESPECIALLY IN THE CRIMEA (WHERE THE RUSSIAN TROOPS ARE), WOULD RATHER BE CLOSER TO RUSSIA THAN THE EU - THEY SPEAK RUSSIAN, WATCH RUSSIAN TV ETC. | OTHER COUNTRIES ARE WORRIED THAT RUSSIA IS GOING TO MAKE CRIMEA (& MAYBE MORE OF UKRAINE) PART OF RUSSIA AGAIN THERE ARE CERTAIN COUNTRIES THAT FOR MANY REASONS ENFORCE THESE INTERNATIONAL LAWS (OR IF IT IS NOT LAW, BUT JUST THE WAY THINGS ARE DONE, THEY ARE CALLED INTERNATIONAL NORMS). INTERNATIONAL LAW TO VIOLATE THE SOVEREIGNTY THESE ARE: OF ANOTHER COUNTRY THE USA NATO THE EU (ALTHOUGH MAINLY FRANCE, GERMANY & UK) UN SECURITY COUNCIL SOVEREIGNTY IS THE IDEA THAT A STATE (SO LIKE FRANCE , OR UKRAINE) IS IN CHARGE OF ITS OWN AFFAIRS, AND THAT NO OTHER COUNTRY HAS THE RIGHT TO INTERFERE OR GET INVOLVED. THIS GOES BACK TO 1648! THE UNITED NATIONS (THE GROUP THAT INCLUDES ALL THE COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD) HAS 5 COUNTRIES THAT ARE IN CHARGE OF SECURITY: UN SECURITY AND THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A BIT OF A COUNCIL USA | UK | FRANCE | CHINA | RUSSIA PROBLEM IF RUSSIA IS INVOLVED SO INDIVIDUAL COUNTRIES AND GROUPS HAVE TO ACT INDEPENDENTLY. THIS IS WHY WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ‘THE EU’ OR ‘THE USA’ ECONOMIC SANCTIONS $ $ $ $ $ RUSSIA UK FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS AND INDIVIDUALS OFTEN KEEP A LOT OF MONEY IN BANK ACCOUNTS OUTSIDE OF THEIR OWN COUNTRY. THERE IS A LOT OF RUSSIAN MONEY IN THE CITY OF LONDON, IN LOTS OF DIFFERENT FORMS (LIKE HOUSES, BANK ACCOUNTS, BUSINESS ETC) WHEN THERE ARE ECONOMIC SANCTIONS, THIS MONEY AND PROPERTY IS TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM - PUTTING PRESSURE ON THE FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO STOP DOING WHAT IT IS DOING. IT ALSO MEANS THAT NEW DEALS AND BUSINESS CANNOT TAKE PLACE PUT SIMPLY THERE IS A LOT OF RUSSIAN MONEY IN LONDON, THE RUSSIAN ELITE BUY EXPENSIVE HOUSES, SEND THEIR KIDS TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS, SETTLE DISPUTES IN BRITISH COURTS & MUCH MORE THE EU IS THINKING ABOUT PUTTING ECONOMIC SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA IF IT KEEPS/SENDS IN MORE TROOPS TO OCCUPY UKRAINE. MANY EU COUNTRIES HAVE A LOT TO LOSE FROM SANCTIONS, GERMANY IMPORTS MORE NATURAL GAS FROM RUSSIA THAN ANY OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRY PHOTOS WERE TAKEN OF A UK MP CARRYING A DOCUMENT SAYING THAT THE UK WOULD NOT BE PART OF ANY ECONOMIC SANCTIONS BECAUSE OF THE HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY THAT RUSSIANS SPEND IN LONDON WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? THAT WHEN IT COMES TO TAKING A STANCE ON ONE COUNTRY INVADING ANOTHER, IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THE UK GOVERNMENT IS MORE INTERESTED IN PROTECTING THE MONEY FLOWING INTO LONDON THAN SERIOUSLY ATTEMPTING TO STOP THE AGGRESSION SHOWN BY RUSSIA £ £ £ £ £ £ £ £ £ £ WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE 'BANKER'S TAX' (WHERE THE EU WANTS TO LIMIT THE AMOUNT THAT BANKER'S CAN TAKE IN BONUSES). BUT LONDON WANTS TO OPT OUT. & JUST LIKE SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA, IT ONLY WORKS IF EVERYONE DOES IT TOGETHER
