In a telephone conversation with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned against "hasty and reckless steps" that could harm Rssian-American relations, the foreign ministry said.

.....”financial stakes”....

The amount of revenues flooding across nation boundaries now are staggering....that IS the war...who has it and where it’s going...There’s a reason it is said..”Follow the money”...

Forbes now in scandal for a billion put in the hands of Ukraines former President’s Oligark...(staff links).

“Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned against “hasty and reckless steps”...”

Help me here: Is Obama “Mr. Hasty” with Kerry “Mr. Reckless”, or is it the other way around. (Sounds like a vaudeville comedy act.)

There is no “crisis”. Putin will do as he pleases and no one will do anything about it other than talk.
