Im in the dark about this one and slightly confused. See all the media images I seen of Putin his physical appearance and projection comes across as a very soft careing nature. But then again looks can be deceiving.

Another thought that crossed my mind is, is this Russias way of saying it will not give in to westen control ? Im really in the dark about this. Why would he do this if he knew it could start WW3 . Lets just hope it dont turn into a government type war. Democracy vs communism would = the apocalypse. Can someone throw some insite on the origional issue that started in Ukraine please?

Here's all China has to say so far as I can tell.

BEIJING, March 2 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese spokesman on Sunday urged all sides involved in the Ukraine situation to comply with international law and seek a political solution to their disputes through dialogue and negotiations.

"China is deeply concerned with the current Ukraine situation," Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said when responding to a question on China's stance after Russia's upper house of parliament, the Federation Council, authorized President Vladimir Putin to use military forces to protect Russian citizens and soldiers in Ukrainian territory.

And here's what they've been doing.

While the developed world is focusing on the rapidly deteriorating developments in the Crimean, China, which has kept a very low profile on the Ukraine situation aside from the token diplomatic statement, is taking advantage of this latest distraction to do what it does best: quietly take over the global periphery while nobody is looking.

It's entirely possible (WWIII). We are on the brink of a WHOLE lot of stuff happening. WWIII will start with various fighting all over - expect Israel to seize this opportunity to strike Syria and/or Iran. Eventually, it will bite Israel in the arse.

We have a stock market crash coming as well.

Is this true...because if it is... 😱




With the threat from Russia’s military invasion, some of Ukraine's oligarchs are uniting to accept to accept top government posts in their home regions. Igor Kolomoisky, the controversial billionaire owner of PrivatBank, was appointed to head Dnipropetrovsk Oblast and Serhiy Taruta, the owner of the Industrial Union of Donbass, is taking over the Donetsk Oblast administration. Acting President Olekandr Turchynov made the appointments on March 2. Other oligarchs have been approached by government envoys with offers to take charge of other potentially troublesome regions since the rise of separatist sentiments in eastern and southern Ukraine, heated up by Russia's ongoing invasion of Crimea, which began on Feb. 27. Some of them have already refused the offers. Ukraine's oligarchs, who own much of Ukraine’s industrial economy, have always exerted their influence on government, but running the government would give them more direct responsibilities and power. Taking charge of the most troublesome regions is a precedent. Economy Minister Pavlo Sheremeta explains it quite simply: “The country is in danger.” Ukraine's government hopes that by appointing some of the richest and most influential people as governors, they will have a chance to unite the nation.

Doesn't Russia have a treaty giving it the right to troops on Crimea?

So far, all Russia has done is taken action to defend its base.

If Ukraine starts taking military strikes on Crimea, then Ukraine would be violating the treaty. Then Ukraine would find it very difficult to get anyone to back them up.

If Russia were to launch an invasion into Ukraine, then Russia could find itself taking on the European Union, and in that case, Russia would be outmatched.

No reason for the US to get involved. We would be better off on the sidelines.

Unless someone does something really stupid, or some other entity (ICBs) were to arrange some false flag situation, it is doubtful that this will go anywhere.

But I wouldn't doubt that some other entity is looking for some way to get the war started.

I was also thinking that Israel may use this to strike Iran as Russia is busy with this entire mess.

That's kind of what I've been thinking. If a similar situation were taking place in Mexico or Canada what would we think of Russia making veiled threats as to how our country took action?

So when you say "pro Ukranian", are we talking ethnic Russians or Ukranian.

When I read that bankers and industrialist were taking over parts of the Ukranian government...huge red flags went up!!!

I'm telling you...something stinks.

Nothing much going on today.

Till now, some pro Russian protests in the eastern regions along with anti Russian protests. The eastern city of Lugansk saw its administrative building being stormed by pro supporters.

Russians tank movements near the birder at Chernihivschini region some 200 miles from Kiev. Tanks were reported moving up to the border then turning back, repeatedly.
