This may be the reason Russia gives for going into Ukraine.
Ukraine’s Defense Ministry says a grenade fired from a launcher caused an explosion in a helicopter at an airfield outside the eastern city of Kramatorsk, wounding a pilot. (April 26)
If it is unmarked, hhmmmmm,,,it is likely Russian...Right?
Escalation. Obama really has diffused the situation, hasn’t he?
It does seem that the Kiev temporary government is aching for a war instead of an election.

You mean like the Poles attacked the radio station at Gleiwitz?
“In response to the escalation of violence in eastern Ukraine Russian President Vladimir Putin slammed Kiev on Thursday saying that the use military force against the civilian population is a serious crime which makes Kiev authorities a junta.
Russias UN envoy Vitaly Churkin pointed out in an interview to Rossiya 1 channelon Friday that if the violence in the southeast of Ukraine doesn't stop, Russia will call a special session of the UN Security Council.”

Putin’s operatives are inside the Ukraine attacking the Ukrainian people, their citizens at checkpoints et al, and he has the brass ones to complain about the Ukrainians.

Vlad has jumped the shark.
