It's official: China is now openly warning the United States against meddling further in Ukraine
China Sat, Feb 28

Xinhua reported that late on Thursday Qu Xing, China's ambassador to Belgium, was quoted as blaming competition between Russia and the West for the Ukraine crisis, urging Western powers to "abandon the zero-sum mentality" with Russia.

Cited by Reuters, Xing said that Western powers should take into consideration Russia's legitimate security concerns over Ukraine.

Reuters' assessment of Xing speech: "an unusually frank and open display of support for Moscow's position in the crisis."

Ukraine Debt Rating Now Super-Duper Junk
4/10/2015

On Friday, Standard & Poor’s cut Ukraine’s long term foreign debt rating to CC from CCC-. The rating of CC is one notch above C, which is used when a debtor is in the process of filing for bankruptcy protection.
In 2008, Ukraine’s GDP was $180 billion. This year, Standard & Poor’s estimates it to come in at just $73 billion, a 50% drop. That has direct impacts on an otherwise educated workforce seeking to integrate with the West.

GDP per capita is expected to fall to around $2,000 this year, an embarrassment which puts the number on par with India. Ukraine’s population is 45 million.

In 2008, Ukraine’s debt to GDP ratio was a solid 20%. Today, it is very high 93% according to Standard & Poor’s.
