I am writing as your constituent to say that I do not want any hostile response by the British Government to what the Russians are doing in the Ukraine.
We do not understand what is happening in the Ukraine. We have no control over events there. We have no vital interests in the region. As in Serbia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and all the other places we have invaded in the past few decades, there is no chance whatever that any intervention we made in the Ukraine would make life better for the ordinary people there.
Above all, the Ukraine is within the Russian sphere of influence. The Russians do have vital interests in the country, and will do whatever is necessary to secure them.
The one interest we have is to avoid a flood of refugees across the eastern border of the European Union. This is best secured by not interfering with Russian efforts to stabilise the Ukraine.
William Hague is mad to go even as far as he has to provoke the Russians. I trust that you will, the next time you see him, draw my concerns to his attention.
