No tanks needed by Putin to annex eastern Ukraine...yet.
Can you imagine what Putin would do if these were pro Ukrainian people storming Russian buildings. Oh wait......!
Phase II has begun. Putin no doubt wants a contiguous land bridge to connect Russia to Crimea. Agitation by Russophiles in eastern Ukraine is the first step. However will Putin again deploy the Russian army and force the West to impose mutually destructive sanctions? Will the Ukraine fight to defend it sovereignty or will NATO support it and risk war? Will Ukraine and Russia negotiate a debt for land swap? Should the US be involved or even care?
Cherkassk province prosecutors said Vasily Sergiyenko was abducted in his home city of Korsun-Shevchenkivskyi on Friday evening and later murdered. The nationalist Svoboda party, of which Sergiyenko was a member, said the reporter was found with stab wounds and signs of beatings to his head and knees.
Oh dear, the MSM will be upset about this.
Yes,Vlad,I've ordered the 101st Airborne and the 1st Marine Division to be "flexible" as well.
Have the pro-Russians thrown any firebombs at the cops like the Obama/Soros/sodomite EU mobs did in Kiev? Has the Kiev junta ordered the police and military not to touch the pro-Russians like the rump parliament in Kiev ordered the police and military not to touch the Obama/Soros/sodomite EU firebomb throwers.
There are many who do not trust Kiev.
If Kiev won’t move to a federal solution, the country will break up.
Characterization is Kremlin style book approved?
Oh come on , Russian military is tattooed on their foreheads
Looks like some old school communist agitProp....agitation and propaganda. Vlad Putin is reviving this
Spetznaz in unmarked uniforms again?
Hey! What are Agitational Specialists getting paid these days?
Russia isn’t done taking over sovereign territory yet
Sad to see some cheer this on
Boy, did I just get a history lesson on Ukraine today
I have a friend who returned, got his story from where he lived, thought he would have a good grasp on things since he lives there for 12 years now
but, just chatted with a lady friend from Odessa, she sent me to soem links...
that place is all messed up
and the claims that there are Nazi sympathizers from western Ukraine? it’s true, very true, people who organize themselves after Stepan Bandera, a freedom fighter from WWII, the Nazis allowed him to rabble rouse for a while, then threw him in jail, then formed SS brigades using his reputation in soem ways telling Ukrainians they would get freedom from Stalin through them
Anyways, if you read OUN UNSO, those names are from WWI, they are using the historical names of the fighters to unite today’s radicals, highly anti-semitic, anti-Russian, who shot at a LOT of people recently
The whole place is corrupt more than a Tiajuana cartel with bi-polar disease
