What ever happens in St Petersburg today, World’s politicians and journalists ought to learn more History in order to understand each other better! Words might seem just like ”only words easy to understand” but same word might mean completely other things when translated as well within a country due to cultural/religious or tradition….

World forgotten what consequense analyse is, and why it’s needed
There are two main questions that the World including US and Russia had been able to put on table long ago, had they only had historic knowledge about European history’s roots from long ago….
* Might be true that European Union started as a project for peace. Most politicians back then probably thought so. But not being aware of and especielly not acknowledge the history from WW1 up to today have caused hugh problems.
When President Putin yesterday in the program re. Crimean penisula accused US to be behind the Ukraine problem, he was barking on the wrong tree just as so many here in European Union been barking on him instead of Russians in military and/or the Duman. The thoughts regarding Ukraine goes back long before the fall of Sovjet in 1989. In many case I remember same politicians within countries now belonging to EU had suggestions in same direction back in 1975-79. Ultra Right Feet people here in Sweden has been celebrating Karl XII (Charles XII) no matter that he lost in Poltava after several big victories against Denmark, Sachen-Poland and Russia who had declared war against Sweden in 1700. They had a dream of winning Poltava and Ukraine ”back”….
When Ukraine ”emerged” as an own country not so long ago, same Right Wing Feet-people joined the Left Wing ”elfs” and dreamers among the Liberals. In retroperspective it’s obvious that same politians never understood that the groups in Ukraine’s politic weren’t all angels. Some if not all had long roots themselves….
Thus EU of today isn’t what we here in Sweden was told back when Sweden voted to join EU. (I myself voted NO)
* We here in West better remember this:
– Rus, Swedish-Rus and old Scandinavian Goths had been living in Crimea long before Rurik’s days
Please read: Sveriges okända rysk-ukrainska historia Sorry but I haven’t had time to translate into English…
Ostrogoths had many names given to them of Historians in Migration Age and after. Several of them can be traced due to more than one independent contemporary source. Among those sources you can read Armenian Historian, Greek Priests as well as Roman Historians.
* You also need to remember: From 890’s on up to the Ottoman Empire’s expansion into Europe you also find information in works written by Byzantic Empire and many others such as Historians and Fathers of the Church.
True history of Crimea goes back to the days when King Olof Skötkonung (King in Sweden around 1000 AD) had his daughter Ingegerd married to Jaroslav of Novgorod. Irina was here Russian name, after Jaroslav’s death she went into a convent and her name as a nun was Anna. Irina and Jaroslav moved to Kiev and Irina became Emperess of Kiev. The two became ancestors to almost all European Kings in the years to follow.

Personal reflexion the last years
You better remember that History is my main subject, especially period from Migration Age up to today in Northern Hemisphere. Also please remember that I vote on Sweden’s Conservative party Moderaterna I always tried to give same rights to everyone no matter who.
The line below you can find in earlier blogg articles quotes translated into English as well as abstracts:
What began with Pussy Riots actions in Russian Orthodox Church last year. Something that many in the West exclusively related to criticism of Putin, was something completely different. There may have been an element of the Putin Critic who then was heard from the so-called. Russian intelligensian while Gammel Communists and clean Stalinists who increased their demonstrations around Russia. The big power struggle that began then and there was basically a battle between the Russian military and the Russian Orthodox side, Pussy Riot not only criticized Putin, it would have been one thing if it ‘only’ been there – then it would possibly have been interpreted as attempts to greater freedom of expression. The grave was that Pussy Riot blasphemed the church. This is where the limits of decency went and goes in a Russia where the Russian Orthodox Creed has 1000 years of history as well as its oldest saint Anna who was the daughter of Olof Skötkonung. The verdict against Pussy Riot was established last month.Gordiska knuten Ukraina
As I see it, it is the same group that I use to call the Left of the Left who supports Pussy Riots behavior many old-communists but also the so-called ‘neo-liberal’ (read those who believe that the world may be living Rosseaus dreams of freedom What we knnow is that the Russian military and the Russian Orthodox Church already started the battle for what is to come in Russia after Putin, it shows more and more. from blogg article summer 2013.
