Looks like the cold war is heating up. What happened with the President who won the Nobel Peace Prize? What about Hillary’s reset button with Russia?

On the border Ukraine demanded Russia secure so there wouldn't be any personnel and weapons brought into Ukraine, or are we talking about some other border?

This is the second round of this particular, "damed if you do what we demand, damned if you don't" game.

Putin should invade or NOT—Pull out and let the Ukrainians take over—or just annex the land into a greater Russia. One or the other.
