Russian RIA Novosti reports that it has received satellite photos, "which clearly show the accumulation of a large number of Ukrainian military equipment and weapons on the border with the Russian Federation and in the vicinity of Slavyansk." RIA cites a source in the Russian Defense Ministry, who commented that the pictures show a military formation designed "to wipe out the city and all its inhabitants from the face of the earth."
According to source, the group has more than 15,000 troops from the Ukraine army and national guard, about 160 tanks, 230 infantry fighting vehicles and APCs, and as much as 150 mortars, howitzers and multiple launch rocket systems ("Grad" and "Smerch").
The source concludes that "This concentration of troops in one area is not compatible with the potential of self-defense forces, armed with only a small number of pistols and submachine guns."

Yet for some strange reason the Ukraine didn’t do it for the last 20 years when it had all the chances to do so it needed.
Russia, for heaven’s sake, put a f’n cork in it!
Oh and secret documents also show that Ukraininan leaders met with space aliens and Moscow is now under Direct threat!
Translation...stand by for an invasion by hundreds of tanks,none of which have identifying markings,manned by "Ukrainian patriots",to crush the European aggressors.
How can we stop this Ukrainian superpower from threatening poor, defenseless Russia?
LOL, this is comedy gold!
Precusor to an invasion.
Communist propaganda has always been so.
Yet billions, even here, will lap it up like honey.
Our entire education system is fine tuned to condition our young to believe it with a religious fervor.
So what’s Putin going to do?
It would be a good thing if true, however this is just more Russian propaganda / justification for seizing the entire Ukraine.
The Ukranians are preparing to invade and occupy Russia. Blitzkrieg, shock and awe, etc etc.
I don’t think Russia has any desire to seize and occupy the entirety of Ukraine, but only the eastern part. The west of Ukraine is more naturally aligned with Poland and would be a hostile captive, so it would be better left alone. On the other hand, the eastern part of Ukraine leans toward Russia, would easily assimilate, and would provide the non-hostile land bridge to Crimea and the Black Sea that Russia so desperately needs. I expect an east-west division of Ukraine will occur, and that it will provide Kiev with more stability than the present demographic time bomb. The only reason for Russia to invade the whole of Ukraine would be to prevent Kiev from joining NATO.
All the Russian chessmaster options have expired. They lost their stooge puppet. The suvbersives are isolated and can either surrender and vote or not vote.
Elections will soon elect a pro West President and E Ukrainians polls show they want one Ukraine.
The Russians have failed.
Their only option is invasion. The incompetent Russians should just STHU or do it.
The old Soviet style propaganda is getting tiresome.
