Thank you for posting from a feet on the ground perspective for us, Asen.

I have a quick question, of a more personal nature, if you don't mind. We are hearing and seeing a lot of the political side of things in the MSM.

But, I'd like to ask. With all the conflict and confusion where you are. How is life for the common everyday people faring?

Are you seeing a lack of goods for purchase, like food , fuel, necessities for everyday life. Are the avenues for restocking of supplies being kept open for people, or is it becoming more difficult to get certain items. Are everyday medical needs being met.

Stay safe Asen, and thanks again for your updates.

Well to say the least, here in western Ukraine life is absolutely normal, as it was last year or the year before, if someone never turned on the TV, he would never know that Russia has annexed parts of Ukraine and is building up a massive force on the border.

Thanks for the update! I'm really glad to hear things are normal where you're at. So many times in recent years we seem to see a nation slip into a state of unrest.....then never quite come back out of it entirely. I'm happy to hear that doesn't seem to be taking hold there, of all places.

One of my Taekwondo instructors is from Western Ukraine and he stated the very same thing coming from family there. Granted, he says there are still tension and worry that Russia will also annex them as well with no help from the West. I see their worries as we've done nothing to stop Russia.

Thank you for the reply Ansen, and for setting my mind at ease about your personal safety and everyday life.

One thing I've always said regarding uprisings and political change in a region. If you want to know how things are really going, look in the cabinets and fridge of the common people. If it looks normal, then what we see on the MSM is not depicting an accurate view of the situation. We only get the hot spots flashed in front of our eyes over and over again. Leading us to wonder if that region is actually a tinderbox ready to explode.

I'm happy to hear things haven't reached a point, of interfering with getting the things one needs to live life as you require.

According to a Ukrainian news source on Twitter the electricity has been turned off in Crimea. I would presume this has been done by Ukraine but seeing as Russia 'are in control' surely they are also in control of the power stations in Crimea. I wonder if Russia will use this as an excuse to, in their mind, retaliate?!

Apparently Odessa wants to hold a Referendum, too



Rallies have swept eastern Ukraine, with residents protesting against Kiev’s coup-imposed government and demanding a referendum to decide on the future of the region. Thousands took to the streets in Kharkov, Donetsk, Lugansk, and Odessa on Sunday.

If this electricity cut off is motivated by political reasons, I see it as a crime against humanity.
You just don't cut off power to civilians unless there is very good reason for this.

Whereas stealing another country's land and cutting off its gas is perfectly acceptable? The hypocrisy is staggering.

This latest news pretty much confirms how much propaganda Russia Today puts out. Their headline for the lack of power was "Ukraine cuts half of electricity supply to Crimea – vice PM" and then shortly later they update it with the news that the loss of power was caused by accident. RT needs to be disbanded.

Thanks for asking.
Why yes, but those are military objectives, these are civilians. And Russians used non lethal method to force them out. What would have happend if they decided to use fire power? Thank god they didn't. Think about it.

I was comenting on power cut off to civilians.
If you don't have nothing to add to that issue, I couldn't care less for your general stance on the matter.
Move along...

Don't worry; the military bases have emergency generators. I'm sure they will provide electricity to the Crimean civilians for free. After all, they are only there to help them, right?
