Kenya Expresses Grave Concern Over Russia Ukraine Move

Kenya’s ambassador at the U.N. Security Council said it was gravely concerned with recent Russia’s announcement.

Kenyan Ambassador Martin Kimani drew parallels to African history and spoke about nations in Africa that had their borders drawn by distant colonial powers.

“Kenya is gravely concerned by the announcement made by the Russian Federation to recognize Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine as independent states. In our considered view, this action and announcement breach the territorial integrity of Ukraine,” Ambassador Kimani said.

Putin’s directive came hours after he recognized two separatist regions in Ukraine in a rambling, fact-bending discourse on European history. The move paved the way to provide military support.

Kenyan Ambassador Martin Kimani drew parallels to African history and spoke about nations in Africa that had their borders drawn by distant colonial powers.

“Our borders were not of our own drawing. They were drawn in the distant colonial metropoles of London, Paris and Lisbon with no regard for the ancient nations that they cleaved apart. …. At independence,– had we chosen to pursue states on the basis of ethnic, racial or religious homogeneity, we would still be waging bloody wars these many decades later. …..Rather than from nations that looked ever backward into history with a dangerous nostalgia. ….”We chose to follow the rules of the Organization of African Unity and the United Nations Charter. Not because our borders satisfied us, but because we wanted something greater, forged in peace,” said Kimani.

A vaguely worded decree signed by Putin did not say if troops were on the move, and it cast the order as an effort to “maintain peace.”

The move paved the way to provide them military support, antagonizing Western leaders who regard it as a breach of world order and set off a frenzied scramble by the U.S. and others to respond.

  1. Some opine that PUTIN has made an INT failure !

    There is NO INT failure !

    Putin has made a 3 pronged attack – and each is a hedge !

    The shortest route to Kiev was from Belarus – but that would drag Belarus, into the war ! If Bela is sanctioned – then the troops will pour in,from there !

    A 1 single sided attack would have allowed UKR from South and North, to attack and also choke the Supply lines from the South And East,As of now,UKR troops are bogged down in South,East and North – WHICH IS WHAT PUTIN WANTED !

    He is quarantining the UKR army in 4 zones – and then choking them of arms,food,fuel,drugs and is pounding them !

    Now,UKR has 3 logistics supply chains of Russia to break – and even if they succeed in 1 – the other two will move ahead !

    Also,the key for Putin is to take the UKR airports.Once that is done,the logistics supply chain and time – shrinks and has a new variable !Troops and fuel can be airlifted to Kiev and other locations in less than 40 minutes from Russian airfields That is Y intense battles are on at all key airports.

    Once UKR knows that Kiev and Airports will fall,then the UKR ARMY WILL HAVE TO BLOW UP THE AIRPORTS AND ALL FUEL DUMPS.That will be end of the UKR army and the start of urban war !

    As of today,there is ENOUGH FUEL and FOOD in UKRAINE AND PUTIN’S ARMY CAN JUST STOCK UP ON THE SAME – AND THERE IS NO NEED FOR THESE – THEY ONLY NEED THE MILITARY ORDINANCE SUPPLY CHAIN ! EVEN THERE,THE RUSSIAN TROOPS ARE NOT TOO FAR FROM THE RUSSIAN BORDER !

    PUTIN IS CRUISING AHEAD ! IF HE WANTED,HE COULD HAVE SHUT DOWN THE POWER AND GAS GRID AND WATER SUPPLIES AND THE WEB – BUT HE DID NOT !

    Y ?PUTIN WANTS TO RUN UKRAINE !

    IF HE FOLLOWED THE US PATH IN IRAQ – HE WOULD HAVE TAKEN OVER UKRAINE,BY NOW !dindooohindoo
