ripinsnort - I apologize for not getting to this sooner. It is not impossible to believe Vlad being out there "talking" up a position under the "auspices" of the UN. It would go a long way towards Russian interests - which I'm sure are not lost on him.
Having said as much - It is JMHO both the UN and US have given up SIGNIFICANT influence in the region with the way we walked out. Again - JMHO
