You can count on CNN to make it sound harsher than it probably was.

Scary for those involved, I'm sure, but it seems to me that if they wanted to abduct him they would have.

So this UN rep just showed up at the airports, and decided to go walking around in an area where there is an on going conflict?

What if somebody decided to shoot the guy?

Isn't there some kind of diplomatic protocol that should be followed?

Agreed. I read here first and saw he was safe and fine and saw no use of the word ' abduction'. So I thought I would share CNN's take on it since that is the one many Americans will take to heart today " a un diplomat nearly abducted by russians'...... right ? It's accurate enough, right ? Oh brother !

ETA
Now Wolf Blitzer is making it even better " Gunmen FORCE UN ENVOY out of Crimea ""......
Ok the guy said he's going straight to airport, presumably because it scared him and it's not necessarily safe so he' s leaving town? Correct? CNN m akes it sound like the gunmen forced them out at gunpoint " leave or we shoot and don't ever come back'' type of thing and as far as any reports, that is not at all what happened, correct?
( be much easier to post the mistaken/biased reports than to try to find the real ones at this point ) sorry

Surprising how you prefer to remain ignorant , peoples displeasure was used for their own greedy purpose, one corrupt govt. replaced with a worse one , one who would hire snipers to kill its own people just to achieve its goals and blame the opposition govt.

Considering his normal duties he more than most should be well aware of the risk he took. I mean if any area is full of opportunity to be kidnapped or harmed it would be as a westerner in the middle east. It is almost blatant what the goal of his little visit was and the east west tug of war rolls on with normal Ukrainian citizens caught in the middle.

That was a mistake Russians should have made sure the UN envoy was ok now hes going to go back reporting Crimea is out of control.and in control of angry mobs.


Unless that's exactly what he was sent there to achieve, in which case for one side it was a massive success.


It certainly is somewhat the impression Putin is trying to create, that he has no control over the pro-Russian forces in Crimea and that they are not Russian military. And it may very well be the impression that the other side wants to create as well.

Interesting that the group of people who stopped the envoy knew where he was and who he was and allegedly claimed they had orders to take him to the airport. But definitely not kidnapped, just detained inside a coffee shop against his will by armed people and not allowed to leave until he agreed to go directly to the airport and leave Crimea.

I wonder who is driving him to the airport, his original driver, or the armed group that detained him?

was reading the statement realeased by NATO on there plan to the crises and then i got to this part.




"Earlier this week, I directed the Department of Defense to suspend all military-to-military engagements and exercises with Russia," he added. These include two scheduled trilateral exercises with the Russians, one with the Canadians and Russians and the other with the Norwegians and Russians.

"Also, this morning the Defense Department is pursuing measures to support our allies, including stepping up joint training through our aviation detachment in Poland ... and augmenting our participation in NATO's air policing mission on the Baltic Peninsula," the secretary said.


This sounds to me like troops are going to poland and there sending planes into the Baltic i guess troop movements.are going to start just in case.
