Никто ещё США от РФ не предъявлял притензии по поводу Аляски и Калифорнии
А надо раз их презиидент так волнуется, что ему отдавать?
Примечательные куски речи сегодня в Таллинне в которой он поблагадарил "лесных братьев" оставленых нацистами в Эстонии (It was defended by Forest Brothers in the resistance) и сказал что это не нацисты на киевской площаде! (on the Maidan were not led by neo-Nazis of fascists.)
Obama Transcript: из речи Обамы в Таллине (September 03, 2014 Remarks by President Obama to the People of Estonia)
"That dream of freedom endured through centuries of occupation and oppression.
It was defended by Forest Brothers in the resistance, and sustained by poets and authors who kept alive your languages and cultures.
Today, people working to build their own democracies to Kiev to Tunis look to you for inspiration."
"Economies had to be reformed. Foreign forces had to be removed from your territory."
"We’re stronger because we’re democracies. We’re not afraid of free and fair elections because true legitimacy can only come from one source, and that is the people. We’re not afraid of an independent judiciary, because no one is above the law. We’re not afraid of a free press or vibrant debate or a strong civil society because leaders must be held accountable. We’re not afraid to let our young people go online to learn and discover and organize because we know that countries are more successful when citizens are free to think for themselves."
"And yet as we gather here today, we know that this vision is threatened by Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. It is a brazen assault on the territorial integrity of Ukraine, a sovereign and independent European nation. It challenges that most basic of principles of our international system, that borders cannot be redrawn at the barrel of a gun, that nations have the right to determine their own future. It undermines an international order where the rights of peoples and nations are upheld and can’t simply be taken away by brute force. This is what’s at stake in Ukraine. This is why we stand with the people of Ukraine today."
"The protests in Ukraine on the Maidan were not led by neo-Nazis of fascists. They were led by ordinary Ukrainians, men and women, young and old who were fed up with a corrupt regime and who wanted to share in the progress and prosperity that they see in the rest of Europe. And they did not engage in an armed seizure of power."
"After an agreement was brokered for constitutional reform, the former president then abandoned his office, and parliament endorsed new elections, so that today Ukrainians have a new democratically elected president. And I look forward to welcoming President Poroshenko to the Oval Office this month. He was chosen by the people of Ukraine. It was not the government of Kiev that destabilized eastern Ukraine. It’s been the pro-Russian separatists who are encouraged by Russia, financed by Russia, trained by Russia, supplied by Russia and armed by Russia. And the Russian forces that have now moved into Ukraine are not on a humanitarian or peacekeeping mission. They are Russian combat forces with Russian weapons in Russian tanks."
"Now, these are the facts. They are provable. They’re not subject to dispute. As a result of state-run propaganda, many Russians have become convinced that the actions taken by their government is strengthening Russia. But reaching back to the days of the czars, trying to reclaim lands lost in the 19th century is surely(!) not the way to secure Russia’s greatness in the 21st century. (Applause.) It only shows that unrestrained nationalism is the last refuge of those who cannot or will not deliver real progress and opportunity for their own people at home."
"Now this week our alliance must unite around a new plan to enhance our readiness, and that means we need to step up our defense planning so we’re fully prepared for any threat to any ally. It also means we need to have the infrastructure and facilities that can receive rapid reinforcements, including here in the Baltics. We need to enhance NATO’s rapid response force so it can deploy even more quickly and not just react to threats but also deter them."
"And even as we meet conventional threats, we need to face other challenges, and that includes propaganda campaigns that try to whip up fears and divide people from one another. We reject the idea that people cannot live and thrive together just because they have different backgrounds or speak a different language. And the best antidotes to such distorted thinking are the values that define us. Not just in the Baltics but throughout Europe, we must acknowledge the inherent dignity and human rights of every person, because our democracies cannot truly succeed until we root out bias and prejudice, both from our institutions and from our hearts."
"Fifth, we must continue to stand united against Russia’s aggression in Ukraine. (Applause.) "
