Russia warned Tuesday that any use of force in Ukraine's eastern region could lead to civil war, as Kiev seeks to regain control after pro-Moscow uprisings in three cities.
Pro-Russian protesters seized government buildings in the three cities of Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv on Sunday. Rebels occupying Donetsk's regional government building Monday declared a "people's republic" and called for a referendum on secession from Ukraine to be held by May 11.

Oh, so Ukrainians can overthrow by force the elected government, but ethic Russian Ukrainians can’t do the same?
Its only allowed when the overthrowers work for Soros and the NWO Globalists.
If Kiev does not heed Russia’s warning, it will be setting in motion events the outcome of which no one can predict.
I think its safe to say the warning will fall on deaf ears.
OK, this is how Puuty-Poo gets into the Eastern Ukraine. Get the usual thugs to go in and break things and people and then get the military to go in to restore order to a chaotic situation endangering local Russkies.
Please try and keep up. It’s ok if the Russians do it. If anyone else does, they cry like babies.
I knew it.
I knew it would turn out this way.
At the very least Russia will take the eastern part of Ukraine.
They might even go as far as Odessa to create a land bridge and reannex Moldavia.
Putin is following the playbook written by Clinton, Obama, (HR)Clinton, and JFK(the one who served in Vietnam) .
1. Instigate “peaceful protests”.
2. Escalate vandalism and violence, until you get a police response.
3. Have compliant media focus on police violence, and minimize “protester” violence.
4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 until you get a full-on military response.
5. Send in the air-force to “protect the peaceful pro-democracy protesters”. (Claim that it’s ‘not war’ because there are “no boots on the ground”.)
Putin’s main modification, so far, is the use of ground troops instead of aerial bombardment. He’s got no reason to pretend that it makes a difference whether or not there are “boots on the ground”. (It’s an act of war either way.)
If Kiev does not heed Russias warning, it will be setting in motion events the outcome of which no one can predict.No one can predict? Putin is going to invade again.
Correction: they cry “fascists and Nazis and anti-Russian and...”
I swear, it’s as if the Russians have the most severe case of geo-political penis envy on the face of the planet.
The Ukrainians didn’t exactly use force to overthrow their government. The entire administration abandoned their offices and fled when they realized the people were fed up with the corruption and the demonstrators weren’t going to fold their tents and go home.
Putin’s concerned because just like Ukraine, Russia has a corrupt, criminal government. Since Maidan, Putin is concerned that the truth could be his undoing. That’s why the Russian disinformation program and provocateurs have been busy. And while we’re at we can screw every Middle Eastern country that’s been sponsoring terrorism at the same time. What’s not to like about that?
Best of all, it won’t cost taxpayers a dime and the military and the public can break out the popcorn and watch.
When you’re the godfather, occasionally you have to remind the peons who is boss. You can’t allow people who want basic freedoms get uppity. Here’s an example of freedom of speech in action in Russia. Note that even the folks holding up invisible signs protesting the arrest and incarceration of previous protestors get hauled off.
We need to proceed with all possible speed to kick the Russians in the balls economically.
I’m sure Putin will conduct a “civil war”.
It really would help them avoid the Nazi label if they didn’t form as the socialist nationalist party, give Nazi salutes, adopt the Wolfsangel emblem of the 2nd SS division as their emblem, and have torchlight parades carrying the portrait of Bandera.
Oh, please. The Western Ukrainians were Occuparasites on steroids. Yeah, the elected government just decided on their own to pack up and leave, like Brendon Eich of Mozilla just decided on his own to leave.
