I am convinced that Ukraine needs a broad public debate about the long-term strategy with regard to Russia. I am a Russian citizen, born in Odessa (ie the Ukrainian SSR 44 years ago) and living in Kiev since December 2010, I believe that murderous discourse of "brotherly peoples" and "Russian world" must be countered by an adult, the European discussion about the real issues . Yes, a strategic ally proved treacherous enemy (namely perceived as Moscow is the population of Ukraine). Yes, at the mention of the word "Russia" in the company of the Ukrainian patriots in the best case hangs an awkward pause. But the wall itself off from the troubled neighbor fail. How not to get, and forget about it - come and remind.
