We have across all Crimea Russian armies. In Evpatoria yet I didn't see) All Southeast of Ukraine wants that we became Russia. Already the president of Russia protects us from the Ukrainian bandits. John Southeast of Ukraine it generally Russian inhabitants.
it's look more and more that the crimea will go back to Russia. I think even the Ukrainian are thinking this now. the tatar are only one with the problem as they don't like the Russian for what they did to them.
KYIV CORRECTS A DEEPLY FOOLISH MISTAKE: NATIONALISM VS. PATRIOTISM
After Yanukovich fled, I was startled and angry to read that Ukraine's Rada (parliament) had voted to repeal a 2012 law, allowing Ukraine's regions to adopt a second official language, in addition to Ukrainian.
This was an obvious affront to those Ukrainian citizens who identify ethnically with Russia, and/or speak primarily (or only) in Russia. One of the problems of the Euromaidan movement has been a significant component of NATIONALISM -- that is, people who focus on Ukrainian ethnicity and culture. In a country where so many people DON'T share that identification, the wise and just policy is PATRIOTISM: pride in and loyalty to country and its institutions.
Though Putin very likely would have acted anyway, the Rada's vote was fuel onto the fire in eastern Ukraine, and contributed to Russia's vile pretext.
Today, Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov vetoed the Rada's repeal, in a belated gesture of conciliation to Ukraine's millions of Russian speakers.
Fortunately, I think it isn't too late for Kyiv to reassure Ukraine's eastern regions that the new government will represent them also.
Today, Prime Minister Medvenev said Yanukovych is the real president. Russia will not deal with those who used violence to gain power. He suggested that they put Yanukovych impeach and try him for murder if they have a problem with him.
Sounds fair. Although the Russians are liars and it is in question if they will deal with the new administration if that took place, I think that would be a good next move.
I agree with you Durak,,, that was just the excuse Putin was waiting for. Russian speaking people are all over Ukraine,,, so now he wants the world to believe he has a legitimate reason for “protecting?” Russian people throughout Ukraine.
Ukraine’s army isn’t a threat to anyone,, I just looked at a news article showing 4 unarmed Ukrainian soldiers guarding the gate to a base,,,, with fully equipped Russian soldiers surrounding it.
The 2nd link is self updating,,, it will give up to the minute,,, or 30 minute updates.
I wonder how Facebook and VK are monitored. Nothing close to what happened in Ukraine is happening in the US. Yet, Facebook is full of political posts about US politics. There were not that much political posts about Euromaidan since its beginnings. It diminished greatly after the invasion.
Europe will become a vital part of a new European superpower—a resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire. This prophecy is directly related to the Crimean crisis! The fear you see in Europe because of events in Crimea is going to cause 10 leaders in Europe to unite in a sudden and dramatic way—and in precise accordance with prophecy
With the political foiling with Russia, the Brits have made a political error in judgment. They proposed disputed art going to St. Petersburg for display. Likely the Brits will never see it again, as it's provenance is under question.
Sniper shootings on 20 February 2014 in Maidan killing more than 50 protestors:
"At the time, riot police were blamed for the deaths, but they were not the only ones shooting that day. Yet the official investigation into the violence appears to be going nowhere. Gabriel Gatehouse [the reporter] hears for the first time from a man who says he was recruited to be a sniper on the protestors’ side. So what did happen on Maidan square, an event that has pushed the world to the brink of a new cold war?"
This BBC reporter who witnessed the shootings, investigates who the snipers were. New facts, yet still much uncertainty due to courts blocking information to investigators.

Idiocy. The focus of the protesters was on the regime. Taking on the police/military at that level is a total absurdity without any goal except to be crushed with overwhelming retribution. The leaders of the regime are not on the front lines. It is a goal of the regime to try and decimate the opposition as they are on the front lines. The desperation of the regime assassinating the leaders of the opposition in such a manner caused the regime itself to self destruct. Revisionist's attempt to subvert the facts only will have credibility with the usual suspects and idiots overreaching their intellect.
Yanukovich is speaking to the media about returning to Ukraine. That is a great idea. Come tomorrow and use the same trucks that brought arms to the traitors to bring back the billion of dollars embezzled during his tenure of decimation. Then stroll down Khreshchatyk to the Dynamo Stadium and be received by your loving proletariat. Appropriate because you will resemble Il Duce` and his bitch 2/3 of a century ago.
