So they finally did meet as the OSCE had wanted.  Who “they”?  Well, whomever the junta invited, but not the representatives of the southwestern Ukraine, that’s for sure.  The BBC made it look really “diverse” with this photo:

The beauty of “diversity”- all that is missing is a Ukrainian Hare-Krishna

I have found no list of participants.  All I know is that the one key party to any such negotiations was not present.  I am not sure whether this was because the proud junta did not want to talk to “terrorists” or because the said “terrorists” did not want to talk to the “occupying power” of their sovereign state.  What is certain is that such “negotiations” are a total waste of time, which nobody in the Ukraine can afford.

According to one website “the talks lasted 2 1/2 hours and ended inconclusively”.  Amazing?  What could they possibly have “negotiated” about and what kind of “conclusion” would anybody have expected?!

Anyway, if you find out:

1) the list of people attending the talks and
2) what topics were discussed

I would be most grateful if you could post that info in the comments section.

Many thanks and kind regards,
