Cartoon: Russia, Ukraine and the Crimea


© Matthew Buck Hack Cartoons for http://tribunecartoons.com

Europe is apparently unable to do much about Russia’s apparent re-annexation of the Crimea from the Ukraine because it is very dependent upon its gas supplies. The BBC provide a handy round-up of the strategic geo-politics here.

An anecdotal observation to support the idea of a changing power relationship is the recent sponsorship of the Champions League football by Gazprom, the Russian energy conglomerate.

The cartoon belongs to a memory of an aged British Gas advertising campaign.
