So started a hand written note, in French, delivered to Secretary of State John Kerry from none other than Vladimir Putin.
While the full letter has not been released we have it from reliable sources that Russian President Vladimir Putin penned a missive to John Kerry thanking him for sending $1 Billion to Ukraine.
According to those who have seen the letter, Mr. Putin voices his appreciation for the move to clean up Ukraine’s financial situation before he officially takes over the country.
In other parts of the letter Mr. Putin reportedly also speaks highly of Mr. Kerry’s command of French and expressed how appropriate it’s use has been in the Negotiations with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov.
We are told that Mr. Putin promised to delay the transition in Ukraine until the United States was finished with the Economic Plan they have set forth in order to “not upset the world markets”. He attributes Secretary Kerry’s superior skill in Diplomacy for the progress being made in Ukraine. President Putin also made it clear that he knows the United States really doesn’t have the money to spare Which in his words “made the gift mean so much more”.
There were also minor pleasantries included for Teresa, whom Putin eludes to a long-standing relationship.

To My One Reader,
Please forgive Me.
Everything is Fine… Nothing to see here!
Judging by the News this Morning (030414) everything is A-OK on the Eastern Front.
The Ukrainian Troops are Surrendering En Mass and The Markets are happy… it’s all cool, right?
Not to mention, Surrendering is Very Cool! Just ask the French or Establishment Republicans.
Just between you and Me, I Hope Vlad can keep up this level of Gentle Diplomacy throughout Eastern Europe. (BTW – I understand a great number of Ethnic Russian’s live in the Detroit area. Lord knows they could use some help. There’s even a Port! And, I’m willing to bet if Soviet troops started to seize the airfields no one would notice.)
As long as it doesn’t affect me it’s all good.
I apologize to everyone for my getting upset about Russian Expansionism. Clearly I overreacted because if there Were an issue it would still be front page news. I’m just Glad John Kerry’s arrival in Kiev put a stop to what was evidently a non-issue. Thanks John Kerry. I knew you’d be the Perfect Secretary of State.
I also want to commend China in their latest deployment of Medium Range Missiles that can reach Guam. I fully understand how difficult it can be deploying a brand new platform. And, I Hate Snakes. Well Done guys!
So again, I’m sorry. I’m Sorry, I’m Sorry, I’m Sorry.
Please accept this apology for my Hysteria.
And, I do not think Taiwan will end up a full-fledged part of China tomorrow. Definitely not tomorrow. Possibly by April… but definitely not tomorrow.
