Seems to me that the Ukraine leaders think that as long as they yell, "the Russians are coming" no one will pay any attention to what the new leadership is up to.
I can't decide whether the Ukrainians or the Russians are tossing more manure around. If the Ukrainians can't get their act together pretty soon the Russians won't have to do anything except accept the delegations from the Eastern Ukraine who show up to ask to be part of Russia. They won't even have to send anyone, just nice new uniforms and ammo.
I’d wager that the amount of manure is 80 - 20 in favor of the Russians. Of course, we have a good number of FReepers who are skeptical of everything, unless it’s sourced through Russian state-owned media.
