Ukraine SITREP May 12th, 2015 by Raskolnikova

1)The IMF confirmed the prediction of the fall of the Ukrainian economy in 2015 
Ukraine’s economy went into a deep crisis, and there is clearly a confusion of the government of Arseniy Yatsenyuk. Even the IMF sees that all the talk about reforms remain being just talks. In fact, the government of Arseniy Yatsenyuk by their actions (introduction of new taxes, rising utility prices, the ruin of banks) destroys the economy of the country. A business cannot work in such conditions.

Special Report: Vietnam between the US, Russia and China

I don’t know who “Conical Hat” really is.  All I know is that he is a Vietnamese reader of the blog.  And judging by his article, he is somebody with superb knowledge and understanding of Vietnam’s history and international relations.  We emailed each other a couple of times and, one day, I suggested that he write up something about the geostrategic position of Vietnam.  What Conical Hat sent back to me was the most detailed and most interesting analysis of Vientam I have seen in a very long time.  I am immensely grateful to him.
