I added the link,

Something from my local newspapers, keep in mind this is one of the biggest in Belgium.

Janoekovitsj in ziekenhuis na hartaanval
Translated : Janoekovitsj in Hospital after heart seizure.
www.hln.be...


De op 22 februari afgezette Oekraïense president Viktor Janoekovitsj zou volgens een Russische krant na een hartaanval zijn opgenomen in een ziekenhuis.
De krant Moskovski Komsomolets bericht dat de 63-jarige Janoekovitsj volgens een anonieme bron een hartaanval leed en in zorgelijke toestand verkeert. Moskovski Komsomolets is de krant met de grootste oplage van Rusland.


Translation:
The deposed on February 22, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych would be hospitalized. According to a Russian newspaper after a heart attack
Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper reported that the 63-year-old Yanukovich according to an anonymous source suffered a heart attack and is in a precarious state. Moskovsky Komsomolets, the newspaper with the largest circulation in Russia.

Was this an attempt to take his life, or is this a plan set in motion the make him disappear... Also this does imply Russia doesn't want him to return.

Ukraine Proposes to Host NATO Council Meeting


BRUSSELS, March 6 (RIA Novosti) - Ukraine’s interim prime minister said on Thursday he has invited NATO Council to hold a meeting in Kiev over the recent developments in the political crisis in the country.
“I invited the North Atlantic Council to visit Kiev and hold a meeting there,” Arseny Yatsenyuk said during a visit to Brussels, where he met with NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and EU officials.
“We believe that it will strengthen our cooperation,” Yatsenyuk said.
He also reiterated Ukraine’s request for additional military aid from NATO “to strengthen the country’s defenses on the technical level.”


I was wondering, is this even allowed? Being Ukraine isn't a part of the nato?

Yes, technically it is allowed as Ukraine and NATO entered into a 'special relationship' back in 1997. The agreement is called the "Nato-Ukraine Commission" and it's stated mission is strengthen ties between NATO and Ukraine on a wide range of issues. I got the impression while I was researchig this a few days ago, that it seemed as if NATO may be working with Ukraine to get the country in shape for entering NATO in the future. Here are some NATO links that you may be interested in:

Offical NATO Statement of 3/6/14
NATO-Ukraine Commission (NUC)

It's important to note that NATO has a similar commission set up with Russia, which is what the NATO head was referring to when he announced earlier in the week when he said talks with Russia would be suspended:
NATO-Russia Council (NRC)

Edward, Chichester
emails: It usually takes months to organise a referendum, with such a short time frame and with the denial of access to OSCE observers, will the referendum in Crimea truly be free and fair? Bearing in mind that 58% of Crimea's population is ethnically Russian and not all of them pro-Moscow, is it a referendum that can be won by Russia without vote rigging?

The US is sending an additional six F-15 fighter jets and one KC-135 refuelling aircraft to Lithuania to bolster Nato's watch on Baltic airspace. Here is one of the four American F-15s currently stationed at Siauliai Zuokiniai.

It seems there was a security scare involving the Ukrainian prime minister's jet last night, as he flew back to Kiev from Brussels via Vienna. Acting on a security warning from German flight controllers, Swat teams boarded his Austrian Airlines flight after its scheduled landing in Vienna, AP reports. They found nothing out of the ordinary. Mr Yatsenyuk then took his scheduled connection on to Kiev. German flight control spokeswoman Kristina Kelek says the initial warning came from Belgian police. It was, she adds, a vague warning that "there was possibly a terrorist attack planned".

I can add a little more to that story about the Ukrainian PM's plane being detained for a bit in Vienna. The Guardian Live Feed story adds this:


It did emerge, however, that the Ukrainian prime minister was on board. He caught his connecting flight Kiev an hour later, said Vienna’s Kurier newspaper. “Russian secret service circles are assumed to have been pulling the strings behind this terrorism false alarm,” said the paper, quoting Vienna police sources. All passengers were questioned. None of them noticed anything suspicious, the paper said.
Bold mine.

I thought you were following the events...
Russian troops were in crimea all along, nobody "invaded".
The separatists-fascists are controlling the kiev regime right now, have you not followed the news?
Russias agreements are their own, nothing to say about that.
And, the (fascist) "prime minister"(quoted, because its a fascist coup who put him there), has (or should have must say) no real bearing in international affairs, it was a coup d'etat.

The moment they set foot outside of their base bearing arms against Ukrainian citizens, they were an invasion force. Try to keep up.

30 Russian Nuclear Bombers Amass - Who Is Russia Preparing To Bomb?



According to Turner Radio Network, Russia has amassed 30 nuclear bombers at an airfield adjacent to Russia’s Borisoglebsk national level nuclear weapons storage facility and US satellites have seen “numerous transfers from the storage facility to the aircraft.”

Is this Russia’s way of visibly showing they will strike out with nuclear weapons if attacked? Are they preparing for a retaliatory attack or their own offensive attacks?

As of March 4, 2014, according to the satellite imagery, there were only two bombers parked at that airport and now there are 30, loaded up and ready to strike, as evidenced by Auxiliary Power Units (APU’s) attached.

Because? The country is under the rule of a fascist coupist regime, seems that such term does not sink with you lot. Ofcourse as they are russian bashers (and the first day the "declaration of intentions" was clear: "we will die killing jews and russians" was the quote, right?) all is forgiven.

I can't see this as a positive development if proven true:


13:23: BBC Monitoring writes: Ukraine's 5 Kanal TV says Serbian nationalists are patrolling the streets of Crimea alongside Russian Cossacks. The TV showed one man, who was captioned as a Serbian citizen, saying that he and his brother had come to Crimea "at the request of the Russian Cossacks". It noted that the men were wearing "Chetnik badges". Serbia's Press website also reports that five self-declared members of the nationalist paramilitary Chetnik group arrived in Sevastopol earlier in the week, at the invitation of the Cossacks.

First, I want you to provide a link to a source that supports your quote. Not a Russian source. Second, I agree that Russia is under fascist control, but that does not give them the right to interfere with the internal affairs of other countries.
