Well Putin has a friend in Assad & Syria.


Assad described the Russian leadership’s stance as a “wise policy” in the face of “coup attempts against legitimacy and democracy in favor of the terrorist extremists”. He reiterated Syria’s commitment to Putin’s “rational approach” which he described as supporting “the right and truth” and applauded Russia for “saving the world from dangerous events”.

I believe this is the only country, not involved, to support the Russian actions in Crimea.

The problem I see with the situation, are not the Russian or Ukrainian soldiers, since they all seem totally professional and the ones at the bases seem, from the vice reports, to get along pretty well since they are just doing their job and it is nothing personal.

BUT! the local people there are just real a**holes, sorry, but they got along years and years and now they are blocking a poor woman, cutting electricity and water even for their own forces in the base (from another report) and just provocating everybody.
I have no idea if they do that, because they want to do it freely or if they are paid by either side to somehow escalate the conflict


No the ethnic Russians in Crimea are ok hard to find a better way to put this tend to be racists or more pro russian as being superior. This is why the tatar population is worried about whats going on in Crimea and starting to worry. The Ukrainians sort of balanced out the area so to speak because there moving to becoming more westernized. And i dont mean politically they want to go buy cokes watch movies and be more like they consider 21 st century society should act. Ethnic Russians want things the way they were they liked the security and the structure of the Soviet lifestyle. So its almost like in the US you have conservatives that want thing like they were in the 50s. And progressives who want to move to a global world. I guess its the same everywhere if you think about it.

The hypocrisy and irony from both sides is quite amazing. Russia accuses the west of staging a coup, while they themselves are staging a coup. Russia says there are not troops in Crimea, but yet Russian troops stated they were indeed Russian troops and the acting Deputy PM of Crimea stated that Russian troops were indeed in Crimea. Oh and lets not forget that according to all that Crimea is NOW considered to be a part of Russia, even before a "referendum." In other words, Russia invaded, staged a coup, then proclaimed Crimea Russian territory, but a referendum has to be done at the point of a gun.

I think that it is more like the west first staged a coup.

And now Russia has recouped.

Just reading an article things are going to change looks like the Ukrainian commanders arent going to play around anymore.However there is a weird development Russian troops pulled back??




Russian troops in Crimea lifted part of their days-long blockade of Ukrainian military sites Thursday, although it was unclear whether the move was a display of confidence that they had the peninsula firmly under control or an effort by the Kremlin to begin a quiet, strategic retreat in the face of international outrage.




The Russians also lifted their blockade of at least two other Ukrainian bases in the cities of Bakhchisaray and Novoozernoye, though they continued to surround other sites, including the naval headquarters in Sevastopol.






"Wednesday late at night the Russian paratroopers that deployed all over our base suddenly packed and went away," said Lt. Col. Oleksandr Lomako, deputy commander of Ukraine's antiaircraft regiment stationed in Yevpatoria, about 60 miles north of Sevastopol. "But when leaving, their commander said that they will be back."
Lomako's officers retrieved stored weapons and rearmed their men. "The Russians captured our base and disarmed us only because they took us by surprise and because we didn't want to start a big war by armed resistance," he said. "Should they reappear again and attack us we will use every means at our disposal including firearms to defend our base."

Reportedly, only close to major military compound Crimea 79th separate airmobile brigade (Nikolaev), trying to do something for the benefit of the new government as a result of 25 years of looting almost incapable of fighting in the country: on forums and blogs of Nikolayev appeared numerous calls for help to the population of the radio stations and their accessories, as well as other equipment.

As far As I understand that the Ukrainian Navy also doomed to failure. None of the U.S. aircraft carriers can not enter into the Black Sea.

It makes no sense to provoke the Crimean population . If there was partial use of any military equipment and special forces in the Crimea from Russia , only to ensure the safety of the new leadership of the Crimea. Terms referendum as close as possible , all the military units in the Crimea or defected to the new government of Crimea , or completely disorganized and can not fulfill the will of the junta from Kiev. Ukrainian Navy blocked in places where flooding ships. Everything is done quickly and accurately . I think the referendum is nothing to prevent.

Like i said from the begining, this whole Russian military exercise, not war, has been to show exactly what would happen and how easy it would be to take Ukraine if need be.
But, instead of using brute force and causing bloodshed, they left the EU / US not having a clue what to do, because they stayed in the political and military "grey zone".

This has been one huge "cock block" for the EU / US tag team and their plan of a quick muppet change and on with business.

Wait a minute – the US, EU, NATO supports those individuals who overthrew the democratically elected government of Ukraine which then by whatever definition makes those in control of Kiev illegitimate. Yet when an autonomous region does not recognize the racist fascists and through a democratic referendum vote to cede from Ukraine and side with the Russian Federation (for their own protection, mind you) – and that process is called ‘illegal’ by the West? Wait – wha? Why?

Haha that’s hilarious! To say the least
