@DimaMiryan: #Ukraine's ministry of Defense: 3 massive groups of #Russian army are ready to take action any moment.


Honestly, how many times have the Ukrainians been saying by now Russia is ready to invade? Look trough this thread and count them. Every damn day some Ukrainian is sending a warning Russia is about to invade.

In the mean time they are using military personal to eradicate their former civilians. The "government" in Kiev is clearly not fit to lead. No experience what so ever.

Slovakia and Ukraine agree over gas supply


Not so fast !

The Ukraine kept cutting the electrical power off to the Crimea but Russia steped in and should have that all but fixed quite soon now so then the Ukraine cut the water off saying that Crimera had not paid it water bill so Russia steped in and said it would pay the bill up front but the Ukraine refused.

The right wing in the Ukraine hold power on the streets and could blow the gas pipes tomorrow to hit Russia in the pocket, this has not happened so it must be the west telling them not to "Pull it" but I would not be sure they will listen unless they are given more power in the Ukraine.

Russia so far is still holding a gas bill owed by the Ukraine and are stil giving the Ukraine credit but if this phony war is real like people say then then Russia would had taken moved to stop selling Gas to the Ukraine and let Germany tell the Ukraine not to switch the pipes off don't you think.

What Russia could do is meter the gas pumped into the pipes and bill Europe for the full amount and then let Europe deal with the Ukraine for any gas that went missing en-route.

Phony war I tell you.

Thats nothing and according to some Russia attacked months ago.

Russia did send tanks into the Crimea after the people voted to stay with Russia and one person got killed during the elections but that's no invasion by any strech of the imagination.

Any military attack would invloved tanks fireing shells, jets and bombers droping bombs or at least machine guns killing hundreds of defending troops. If the Ukraine has been invaded then Europe has been invaded because we have more american bases in Europe than anyone.

What chance do you have trying to debate with people who are seeing thnings in their heads or do you think they have been playing world of warcraft a little too long.

if/when we seen a Russian invasion into the Ukraine then I don't think anyone will be arguing about what an invasion looks like because we have seen vietnam, Iraq, Libia,Afganistan (won naff all) on our TV screens and I would not like to guess what Russian "Shock & Awe" would look like but given that the USA is trying to apply sanctions to Russia which is an act of war then Russia won't need to come up with a feable excuse like invisibale WMD like our banker puppets in Washington used to attack Iraq.

So when Russia sent tanks and troops into Czechoslovakia in 1968, that was not an invasion either. Tell me, kind sir, if sending tanks and troops into another sovereign country is not an invasion what, pray tell, is it exactly? Go ahead, stretch my imagination.

86 people got killed at the start by their own side in Kiev, Russia has been screaming to the UN for an investigation and has a leaked recording to back up these alligations. This I call murder, not war since they were not shoot by the army.

In the east we have about ten dead so far for demanding a vote since they don't have an elected government in Kiew but I won't call it murder since it was the right wing attacking armyed protestors with guns with the military backing them up so one side was fighting with one hand tied behind their backs.

This is not war and you will know it if/when you see it.



This is a real confrontation of idealogy.. same one that Russia V West has been in for centuries.


The clash is between Muslims and the west, Not Russia and in fact we in Europe have been getting on quite well with Russia for the past 20 years until the USA poked it's nose in because Russia and Germany was getting along just a little too fine.

Do you see any protestors in France, UK, Germany, Spain on the streets demanding that our governments takes action against Russia because I don't but you might find protestors on the streets telling the USA to pack it's bag in Europe and to leave us alone and hopefuly a lot of american tax payers will also take up the call across the pond.

Pro-#Russian activists plan to storm the airport of #Kramotorsk in south east of #Ukraine, acc to liberal tv channel Dozhd



The airport is currently controlled by #Ukrainian army & reports say that the pro-#Russian activists are outnumbering the Ukrainian forces



They are now calling on the #Kiev gov't to send in more troops but Kiev has not yet sent anything



A reporter on the ground says the #Ukrainian army is surrounded.

I will try to anser but you will have to help me first because I don't pretend to know much about that conflict.

1. Did the people of the Czechoslovakia vote to let Russia in by 96% before opening the roads?
2. Did Russia have hundreds of tanks or above 10,000 men marcing down the road.
3. Did these invaders vanish into the night or stay on the streets to be seen by all.
4. How many people died on the day of the invasion at the hands of Russians, not killed by own side
5. Were the people united in screaming for international protection from Europe/USA

Option 1 Excludes the Crimea from being an invasion but feel free to make a case for the Ukraine

Since you are trying to split hairs did you know that an un used oil platform off the coast of Kent was invaded by I think 4 men and the owner/squater who lived on the rig landed back on the rig via helicopter, took out his gun and posession back of the rig and held a few people in jail for a few month. I think he was ex-SS and the rig even produced its own stamps and isued passports, worth billions and was on the market last time I looked

en.wikipedia.org...

Hope that stretch your imagination kind sir
