On the occasion of his visit today in #Greece #Russia President Vladimir #Putin has published in the English-language Kathimerini daily a detailed op-ed where he makes, as it seems, an 'indecent proposal' to the EU: "I am convinced we should draw appropriate conclusions from the events in Ukraine and proceed to establishing, in the vast space stretching between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, a zone of economic and humanitarian cooperation based on the architecture of equal and indivisible security". The text does not make it clear whether Mr Putin is proposing the EU and Russia to distribute in a Crimean way the territories in this "vast space" or he means everyone to forget the Ukrainian developments for the sake of mutually beneficial economic cooperation. Further on in the op-ed the Russian president reminds Europe that it is facing a growing competition from "other power centres in the contemporary world" pointing to the Pacific region where the US has strong interests.
