China Agrees With Russia On Handling Of Ukraine

From an unfazed (and historically ignorant) Reuters:

China says agrees with Russia on appropriate handling of Ukraine

Mar 3, 2014

(Reuters) – China and Russia’s foreign ministers spoke about the crisis in Ukraine on Monday, and both countries agreed it was very important to "appropriately handle" the issue, China’s Foreign Ministry said.

"Both sides believe that the appropriate handling of the Ukraine crisis is very important to maintaining regional peace and stability," the ministry said in a statement on its website.

We have previously mentioned the ‘Budapest Memorandums on Security Assurances’ of 1994. And the fact that Russia and the US and UK were signatories. And that France and China became signatories as well. (As noted below, they later issued individual statements signing on to the memorandums.)

For the record, he is are some excerpts from those assurances, via the Council On Foreign Relations:

Budapest Memorandums on Security Assurances, 1994

Published December 5, 1994

The Presidents of Ukraine, Russian Federation and United States of America, and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom signed three memorandums (UN Document A/49/765) on December 5, 1994, with the accession of Ukraine to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Through this agreement, these countries (later to include China and France in individual statements) gave national security assurances to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.

The Joint Declaration by the Russian Federation and the United States of America of December 4, 2009 confirmed their commitment…

Confirm the following:

1. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine, in accordance with the principles of the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, to respect the independence and sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine;

2. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their obligation to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine, and that none of their weapons will ever be used against Ukraine except in self-defence or otherwise in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations;

3. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine, in accordance with the principles of the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, to refrain from economic coercion designed to subordinate to their own interest the exercise by Ukraine of the rights inherent in its sovereignty and thus to secure advantages of any kind…

This Memorandum will become applicable upon signature…

For Ukraine:
(Signed) Leonid D. KUCHMA

For the Russian Federation:
(Signed) Boris N. YELTSIN

For the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland:
(Signed) John MAJOR

For the United States of America:
(Signed) William J. CLINTON

      GetBackJack/ Interesting. It pulled up Armageddon on the unofficial wikipedia

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armageddon

      It says once in Revelations, 12 times in the old testament. I used to think the old testament was just history that led to the Birth of Christ. But it talks about the end times. I have the Greek version of the New testiment, but bought some maps from Christs era, and with the internet you can find where seas have been renamed, but it’s clear Syria is going to play a large part in destruction.

      Lot’s of Christians all say Russia will be one of two countries that attack Israel and they guess as to the other of the two countries. I have books but think it’s kind of copy catting, and so I’d rather
      study the bible. Babylon is significant for some reason.

      I never dreamed the US would come this state of oblivion to Christianity, and figured we’d part of the earth that is not destroyed, but this nation is becoming like nations that God was not happy with. And I just really know one scripture about two in a field and one disappears as to the idea of the rapture where Christians are zapped up to heaven. I figure it might two are in a field and one get’s blown up.
