Since I am going to be very busy until Monday morning, I want to leave you with a “semi-open thread”. If you see something interesting, by all means please post it here. If not, I would like to survey your opinions on two questions:
- In the latest gas deal between the EU, the Ukraine and Russia – who won and who lost? (The junta in Kiev? Russia? The EU? Novorussia? The US? The oligarchs? Gazprom?)
- Who won and who lost in the latest Ukrainian elections? What is the most important conclusion you make from these results?
I will give you my take on this on Monday when I also hope (time permitting) to record my first podcast. I will make this first one “hyper-informal” so please feel free to post any questions (not here!! and not by email either!! but here: http://thesaker.is/podcast-project-lets-give-it-a-first-try-okay-2/) and please feel free to make them questions as informal as you want. I see this podcast as a chat amongst good friends, not a “proper” and uptight academic exercise. Even the topics discussed do not need to be serious. If you want to discuss music, or philosophy – please do so. I will try to answer as many questions as I can, though I will only answer those inspiring me to answer in the first place (troll, idiots and provocateurs will be ignored). Anyway – you can post question until Sunday 1800 GMT/UTC.
Kind regards to all,
