    Not good. Specially when we're at a delicate stage of striking important deals with them. We want our trade/business partners to be stable nations.

    Second you. Just a bit of wild thinking, but maybe FSB is somehow involved. maybe a bid to bring Ukraine closer to RF and make it more dependant on RF for security. What's your line of thinking sir?
