Ukraine Is Not the Crisis You Think It Is

The crisis happening in Ukraine is not the crisis you think it is. In global economics and politics, the Ukraine situation will be seen as a tiny blip in a few short years. Fears that it would escalate into a full blown crisis with serious repercussions for the western world have been blown out of proportion painful as it may be to the Ukrainian people. The social mood of the times suggest that events in Ukraine and between Russia and the US and EU will blow over. Social mood is upbeat and compromise and forbearance are the order of this time.

Unfortunately for the Ukrainian people Russia is re-establishing its boundaries. Distance¬† is its security. From the Ukrainian border to Moscow is only 300 kilometers. Russia simply cannot afford to own the Ukraine as it did after WW2. Having access to warm water ports and the Mediterranean and establishing a pro-Russian influence in the Ukraine satisfies¬† Russian imperialism on it’s western border.

We see the Ukraine situation as now having largely played out and and attention will soon divert elsewhere. Russian stock market prices are heavily discounted as well as it’s currency and are probably a good buy looking for a strong bounce.
