Russians losing grip on reality

THE Russian leadership seems to have forgotten both history and logic in their statements about the Ukraine.

Russia claims that any Ukrainian use of force against internal separatists would be illegal. Are they now admitting their internal war in Chechnya was criminal?

Russia talks about the $2bn allegedly owed to Gazprom for gas supplied through Ukraine, but the vast majority of this debt was accrued under the ousted president Viktor Yanukovych, who is now their guest.

They should ask him about that – not the current interim leadership.
