Easterners take their turn on eastern European conflict

Klimov, Karasin, Matvienko on Ukraine
Reported at RT
Minor edit by Carolyn Bennett

Russian MP Andrey Klimov Russian author, economist, came of age during 1980s Perestroika

“‘In the current situation I would recommend that Brussels and Washington introduce sanctions against each other. The U.S. must answer for instigating a civil war and adding to the explosive situation in Europe.

“‘A number of EU countries should be made responsible for opening the Pandora’s Box by violating the February 21 agreement of Ukrainian stabilization.’”
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin
Career diplomat born in Moscow

“‘We will support all forces that favor the strengthening of bilateral relations between our countries, especially now when the European stability depends on these relations. Western politicians who are currently cursing us must understand this.’”

Head of the Russian upper house, Valentina Matvienko
Highest-ranking woman politician born Valentina Tyutina in Shepetivka (Khmelnytskyi Oblast of Western Ukrainian SSR, Soviet Union) 

“… [O]nly Ukrainian people can decide who will run their state and this decision must be made through honest, clear, transparent and lawful elections.”

Andrey Klimov
Paul Abelsky said in his review of Andrey Klimov’s A Russian MP: The Insider’s Notes, “The book’s real contribution is an attempt to articulate both Russia’s distinctive historical path and to encourage the country’s citizens to take responsibility for its future. Ultimately, the working model Klimov proposes hinges on mobilizing a national consensus, a consolidation of the federal center and the regions, the political elite and other classes. Only this attitude will help Russia grow more introspective, enabling it to face the century’s new challenges.” He came of age “during Perestroika”, entered politics in 1990, and is currently a member of Russia’s parliament, the State Duma. Andrey Klimov was trained as an economist.

Valentina Matviyenko
Born in the Ukrainian SSR, Valentina Ivanovna Matviyenko is the first woman leader of Saint Petersburg and the highest-ranking woman politician in Russia. She is the current Chairman of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation and a former governor of Saint Petersburg, in a political career that began in the 1980s in Saint Petersburg (then called Leningrad). In the 1990s-2000s she was Russian ambassador to Malta (1991–1995) and Greece (1997–1998); Deputy Prime Minister of Russia for Welfare, and briefly the Presidential Envoy to the Northwestern Federal District (1998–2003). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentina_Matvienko

Grigory Karasin

Perestroika: a political movement for reformation within the Communist Party of the Soviet Union during the 1980s (1986), widely associated with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and his Glasnost (‘openness’) policy reform. The literal meaning of perestroika is ‘restructuring’, referring to the restructuring of the Soviet political and economic system. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perestroika
