Correct, he is a Dem Sec Of State carting out the same failed policies as the Repubs!
If I recall correctly, economics had a great deal to do with the collapse of the USSR.
Putin is using Russian energy sources as his hammer. The US and Canada's new-found energy power could be a factor in thwarting Putin. How about using energy clout to put pressure on Putin? Exploiting our energy power would strengthen our economy and weaken Putin's. Sounds like a win-win to me. OTOH, unfortunately the present administration ideology above pragmatism in this regard.
Canada has recalled its ambassador to Moscow.

I don't use the PM feature, so just email me direct at the address shown above.
Russia is the largest producer in the world. They sell most of it to China which is probably why the Chi-Coms are siding with Russia on the Ukraine. The rest is either consumed domestically or sold to India, N Korea etc.

Over the last year they lost arounrd 17% of there value, with 4% in the past few days, but at the same time Canada has lost 10%. Our dollar has been getting stronger and this leads to good investment opportunities in safe currency like AUD, CAD and NZD. Ours has to come back down for trading purposes. GM will be moving their factories out of China to Russia if this trend continues.
