Putin to Obama: Mind your own business

The days when the West could speak with any moral authority have long gone. Nobody listens any more.

“Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of the United States Barack Obama on the American side’s initiative,” announced Putin’s office this morning.

The Russian President spoke of a real threat to the lives and health of Russian citizens and the many compatriots who are currently on Ukrainian territory. Vladimir Putin stressed that in case of any further spread of violence to Eastern Ukraine and Crimea, Russia retains the right to protect its interests and the Russian-speaking population of those areas.

That’s as close as you can get to ‘mind your own business’ in diplomatic language.
