Video below:
The footage was uploaded yesterday. Hopefully somebody will be able to verify its authenticity but it does show Russian APC's moving around. I highly doubt they are in mainland Ukraine otherwise Ukraine would be making a big song and dance by now.

Russian aerial exercises prompt emergency alerts in eastern Finland

Russian aerial exercises prompt emergency alerts in eastern Finland Unusual lights in the night sky prompted residents of eastern Finland to contact local rescue services over what they believed to be emergency flares.

Rescue services say the lights came from Russian aerial military exercises close to the eastern border. Russian aerial military drills tricked residents of eastern Finland into reporting sightings of emergency flares. The jet depicted was not involved in the drills in this report. Ilmavoimat Residents of eastern Finland made a number of calls to rescue services Wednesday evening over what they thought were emergency flares. The reports came in from Imatra, Joensuu, Kuopio, Ilomantsi, Rantasalmi and Puumala. Most of the callers believed that the flares were fired to alert authorities to a marine accident. However checks of bodies of water by local rescue services revealed no accidents.

Officials from the southern Savo rescue services unit said that aerial shots were fired by aircraft during Russian military drills near the eastern border, adding that the discharges left a yellow light that observers may have mistaken for emergency flares.

Finland’s Defence Force declined comment on the matter.
Russia better save their ammunition and stuff rather than wasting it on all these exercises on the borders of their neighbours. When NATO come knocking they are going to need it. However, President Obama needs to find his dangly bits first.


sorry, but USA/EU/NATO seems not so united as they would like you to believe.
we are talking bunch of powerful countries vs one powerful country.
and Russia got them by their balls.
Putin/Russia is putting it's plans into action with lightning speed and "The West" proved unable to provide timely reaction mostly because of conflicting interests and complicated (long) way to make decisions between the "allies".

I am not pro - Russia or pro - anything; just trying to describe the current situation as I see it.
Is NATO more powerful? Yes, definitely.
but the power that is misused or not correctly applied goes to waste.

Ladies and gents, it appears that this blogger lives in Klimov, Bryansk in Russia. Take a look at some of the videos and pictures showing all sorts of Russian military assets being moved around in the region. In one video the locals looked stunned to see a tank rolling through with a soldier standing there. Maybe the anti-west crowd think I'm reading too much into things but the videos speak for themselves. Russia should also have a system in place where they tell the local residents when they are conducting military drills by the looks of the video I watched (the second video down) they appear quite surprised. Click here to see the blog and videos.

And Now The Real Economic Pain Begins As IMF Unleashes $27BN Bailout In "Near Bankrupt" Ukraine



Gazprom must really be demanding payment on overdue Ukraine invoices which is the only way we can explain the unprecedented speed with which the IMF has managed to cobble together a makeshift bailout package of up to $27 billion - the bulk of which will naturally go to Russia - which has just made Ukraine its latest vassal state.


Much more including IMF statement here...

Just putting this out there...Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych is due to give a press conference in Rostov-on-Don, Russia tomorrow. There are rumours circulating that he will announce an assault by Russian troops on the South East of Ukraine. This coincides with Kiev stating there are 100,000 Russian troops all along the Eastern border between Ukraine and Russia.

UN Gen Assembly adopts resolution backing Ukraine's territorial integrity



The UN General Assembly has overwhelmingly voted for a resolution submitted by Ukraine denouncing the referendum in Crimea that made the Black Sea peninsula an integral part of the Russian Federation.

One hundred UN member countries voted in favor of the resolution, while 11 voted against and 58 abstained. The resolution is non-binding.

The 193-nation assembly also voted on the Crimea referendum, which the Ukraine resolution says contains “no validity, (and) cannot form the basis for any alteration of the status of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea or of the City of Sevastopol."

The resolution "calls upon all states to desist and refrain from actions aimed at the partial or total disruption of the national unity and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including any attempts to modify Ukraine's borders through the threat or use of force or other unlawful means."

And the resolution invites "all parties to pursue immediately the peaceful resolution" of the crisis "through direct political dialogue."

In an effort to attract votes in the General Assembly, where there appears to be little enthusiasm for allowing the situation to create an irreparable rift with Moscow, the draft made no direct mention of Russia.

"The draft resolution is not aimed at condemning any member state," said Ukraine's UN envoy Yuriy Sergeyev in a letter accompanying the draft.

Take a look a few pages back. I think you even said you had heard about it if you remember!

I've just found this video of Ukraine seemingly showing their first bit of aggression. They have taken over a base in Kherson Oblast which allegedly belongs to Russia's Black Sea Fleet. These guys actually look like solders.

Now WTF are you ranting about now??


Thanks for the source.

I was referring to the article that came out several weeks ago claiming solar eclipses on the 1st of Abib and 1st of Tishri. If that information was incorrect than I apologize for saying such.

You need address your definition of "ranting" if you think my post qualified as such...

ETA: the solar eclipses on the 1st of Abib and 1st of Tishri are for NEXT year's cycle 2015. Thanks for the correction


God Bless,
