Ukraine's Elusive Peace Lies in Moscow

Ukraine's sustainable peace could be reached today or tomorrow should Vladimir Putin wish it. But Putin's considerations of peace in Ukraine have been far from true since he fears the reality of Ukraine's inevitable departure from Russia's sphere of influence to join the European Union(EU) and western standards of civility.

So whatever overtures Putin might hint at, or agree to, with regards to peace in Ukraine when he meets later today with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, in Moscow, will be short lived.

Pro-Russian separatists wrecking havoc upon eastern Ukraine have agreed to various cease fire agreements since the conflict started last April. Yet, armed with funds, weapons and troops from Russia, they have broken agreement after agreement as the death toll balloons to over 5,300, only to return to the bargaining table once they have gained more territory. To this end, separatists and Russia could now agree to a new cease fire since the rebels have gained new territory from their latest offensives against Ukraine forces. But any agreement would last a maximum of three months.

Only when Putin is satisfied with a Russian influenced connecting territory of Ukraine that merges Crimea and sections of eastern Ukraine, will he then make peace with the rest of Ukraine.

Thus, like Star Wars did the former USSR, perhaps arming Ukraine could pull cold Russian currency away from a much needed Russian economy forcing Putin to rethink Ukrainian peace and global security.
