I am implying the attack upon the outpost was conducted by the Ukr military,adding fuel to Russia's argument that their citizen's are in danger,add water shut off to 1.5 million Russian's in crimea and it's all but a given imo.



Yea, all that Ukraine is doing now is specially provoking the Russians and openly daring them. They recently stopped conceding. Maybe the Ukrainian thinks that Russia is bluffing and does not intend to invade.


They have no choice Ukrainians were losing faith in there government as im sure you can attest to. They began demanding there government do something other than concede to Russia.As far as Ukraine yes i believe they may have indeed come to the conclusion Russia is bluffing i personally think they are as well. There time to attack has actually passed they have allowed Ukraine to mount a defense. There new national guard is starting to be operational there military they had has redeployed they have taken control of there airspace. All of these things makes an invasion harder for Russia. Also i expect there has been some deals in the background to supply Ukraine with things like anti tank weapons. You know if Russia was to attempt an invasion you would see anti air and anti tank rockets show up all over the country. And frankly Russia cant afford to put there tanks in that kind of a risk because NATO would love them to make that mistake.

This is not getting good coverage. And Ukrainians usually carry AKs only, never seen an M16.

Looks like the Russians are unwilling to invade and Ukraine has noticed this and stepped up against their bluff.

Very true you can buy m16s at most gun shops so yeah your right. But trust me an invasion is the last thing Russia want they dont have the resources and the public opinion would eventually change in Russia as well.




“The scenario is like what happened to Iran,” said Igor Korotchenko, a member of a civilian board that advises the Russian military and the editor in chief of National Defense Magazine. “The Russian Federation is not interested in bringing troops into eastern Ukraine.”

Beyond economics, the specter of Slavs killing Slavs would soon sour the Russian public on any invasion. Although the Ukrainian Army is weak, it numbers 70,000, and the country has a history of partisans’ attacking invaders. Mr. Korotchenko said Russians would probably embrace military intervention only if the army was dispatched as a peacekeeping force should the Ukrainian military cause mass casualties.

And the locals could also prove hostile. In eastern Ukraine, regional polls have found that at most one-third of the population, depending on the city, supports joining Russia.

In Crimea, Russian soldiers were greeted warmly, and needed to hold only the Isthmus of Perekop, three miles wide, to sever Crimea from Ukraine. In eastern Ukraine, if the 40,000 Russian troops now estimated to be camped along the border crossed over, they would probably be attacked. Russia would also be responsible for a flood of refugees.

“You cannot occupy this region only with these small green men,” said Alexander M. Golts, an independent Russian military analyst, referring to the anonymous soldiers in Crimea whom Mr. Putin later admitted were elite Russian soldiers. “So you beat those poor Ukrainians. What then? You will have to establish a new border. You will not need 40,000 troops, you will need 140,000.”

With all respect tell that to the 1.5 in Crimea, and genuine separatists in E Ukraine,granted half of which want nothing to do with either Russia OR Ukraine.
Flip it around and consider millions of Americans/Canadian's without the basics for survival.
No public support? think again

Pro Russians arent thinking at all there making themselves intentional terrorists.




Pro-Russian gunmen in Ukraine demanded a “prisoner” exchange for a team of kidnapped Western officials yesterday, as the G7 announced further sanctions to put pressure on the Kremlin and its “cronies”.
The 13 officials, part of an international observation team, were being held in “inhuman conditions” in makeshift jail in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slavyansk, where separatists seized control a fortnight ago.
Yesterday their captors said the men were Nato “spies”, and vowed they would only be freed in exchange for the release of pro-Russian activists arrested by the Ukrainian government.
