There is no need to send Russian Military Forces as there is plenty of people who are coming on voluntary base.


Yeah, I don't agree with that.

Russia wouldn't leave such urgent matters to ''volunteers''

Russia is starting to step over the line, up until now I haven't cared. But now, they are starting to push it a bit.

But when the western powers supported and financed maidan and svoboda it was not a "step over the line"?
Curious double standards there...

Reports: Mayor of eastern Ukraine's Kharkiv wounded by gunfire - @BBCBreaking breakingnews.com/t/NCb

The mayor of the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkov, Gennady Kernes, has been shot in the back by unidentified gunmen, the city council’s press service reports.

According to local media reports, Kerness was shot while jogging in the morning. At about 11:30 am (8:30 GMT) local time Kernes was taken to the local hospital. The City Hall's website says that doctors are fighting to save his life.

Th e shooting comes a day after ultranationalists clashed with anti-government protesters in the city, leaving 14 people injured.


This doesn't seem like just some pro-( insert your preference here ). If he was shot while jogging it most have been in a place where it was quiet ( no unrest ). No political figure would go out for a jog if there where fights on the streets.

Also shot in the back, i'm pretty sure this is an action from a gun for hire group further escalating things and increase tensions more.

Just my opinion though.

Unconfirmed reports are coming from Konstantinovka, a city with in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, of anti-government activists taking over the city hall and police station.

The city is located in the northern part of the turbulent region and has a population of about 77,000. It’s known as a large glass and glassware production center in Ukraine.

I find your posts confusing. You use terms like "anti-government" without specifying which "government" they are "anti." Your use of "we" and "they" is also extremely ambiguous. Sometimes you try to appear American or European, other times you definitely speak for the Kremlin. Please be more specific about who you consider to be the "good guys" and the "bad guys" in future. Also, you need to find an idealistic theme to give color to your propaganda.

The reason why Communist propaganda was so effective in the last century was because it provided a specific economic alternative to the status quo. All Putin's propagandists can muster is anti-Americanism. It is hard to sell a negative, especially when the alternative being offered is so similar to what is being opposed. Plus, there is the added complication that officially, Russia is no longer anti-Semitic. This means that it cannot use its beloved "Zionist Banksters" card. (Every once in a while someone will slip up. I assume they are suitably punished.)

It must be extremely difficult to construct a suitable story line. On the one hand, Putin wants to appear as the defender of international law. On the other, he wants to appear to be the greatest military leader since Alexander Nevsky. (This is why the Russian instigated violence in Maidan was originally blamed on the Germans, and only later on the Americans.) It also doesn't help that Russian propagandists are being asked to deny the presence of troops that Putin himself acknowledges. They have to claim that a government in Kiyev that was elected is illegitimate, but that self appointed governors in the provinces are legitimate.

Good luck with all that.

Repeating a lie does not make it true. Those are Russian flags flying over Ukraine, not "western" ones.

apparently this mayor was pro-russian... hmmm...



On the day in which Barack Obama announced earlier he would unveil another round of sanctions against Russia (most likely involving the heads of both Gazprom and Rosneft), moments ago the already tense situation took another turn for the worse when Interfax blasted news out of East Ukraine that the pro-Russian mayor of Kharkiv, the second largest city in Ukraine, Gennady Kernes, has been shot in the back and is currently undergoing an operation. Will this be the provocation that finally breaks the Russian bear's back and forces the Kremlin to send in "peacekeepers"?

This can go both ways, I can't help the feeling that someone desperately wants to pull Russia in a war. Don't ask me why but that's just how I see this situation.

And for all you obummer people, remember during a war there are no elections
something to keep in mind. I always thought Obama would be the last president.

Also food for thought, the FED ponzi scheme is running to a close, the card house is almost falling.

Who ordered 40,000 troops to the Ukrainian border? That would be my suspect.


And for all you obummer people, remember during a war there are no elections something to keep in mind.


Irrelevant. Wars are not exclusively about domestic politics. If anything, his "lame duck" status gives the President greater freedom to act.


I always thought Obama would be the last president.


Why?

People have been saying that since 1929.

Look , the US can start "drills" whenever it wants, wherever it wants, even amid tensions the US say *** you. IF Russia does the same thing it's an act of war and all the bullocks.

Reverse this whole situation and see who would act differently.

It's not for me to decide who's wrong or right, both parties commit the same crimes, some do it with drones, some with radiation poisoning. And some do it so blunt to post an army on its borders.

The Russians did have that agreement with Crimea that at every point in time it was allowed to have up to 25.000 troops in Crimea. ( but that little thing seems to be forgotten easily ).

then again,cutting of power lines and putting up a no-flyzone probably isn't allowed.

i just don't get why only the US feels it can do what it wants and every other nation get's dragged into the aggressor role.

and to answer your question.

It's just a feeling in my stomach lol.

I don't think anybody has "forgotten" that, but it is a moot point now. Either way, all Russian troop movements needed the agreement of the Ukraine Government, they did not get this prior to spilling out all over the peninsula.

Exactly - no where in the agreement did it say Russia could annex the nation after a questionable referendum organised in less than a fortnight whilst those Russian soldiers were out of base, armed and facing off against the Ukrainian authorities.

Do point out the last time the US invaded a sovereign nation and annexed it's land - then we can compare the US actions against the Russians.

Something people "forget" there, that little bit about annexation...

Seriously?

I think most here are clever enough to see that " deliberating " and " removing the tyrant regime " and annexing are just semantics.

That's what happened in say... Afgan, Iraq, Iran... at no point did they insert a pro-american government ( read puppet government ).

But I really don't want to see this thread derailed for another two pages because I brought this up. I understand you will want to respond, please do so, but I won't answer it ( for the thread sake ).

Russia drills all the time without comment from the US. When the US chooses to drill on a nation's border, it is intended as a warning or provocation. It is the same for Russia. Russia has been threatening Ukraine very publicly, and one would be a fool not to see their hand in the "spontaneous uprisings."


Reverse this whole situation and see who would act differently.


The United States does not send troops to the Canadian border when Quebec hold a referendum to secede.


It's not for me to decide who's wrong or right, both parties commit the same crimes, some do it with drones, some with radiation poisoning. And some do it so blunt to post an army on its borders.


And yet you condemn the United States while defending Russia.


The Russians did have that agreement with Crimea that at every point in time it was allowed to have up to 25.000 troops in Crimea. ( but that little thing seems to be forgotten easily ).


They are allowed to have 25,000 troops stationed in Crimea, not ranging around Eastern Ukraine blowing things up. Besides, who's counting?


then again,cutting of power lines and putting up a no-flyzone probably isn't allowed.


Correct. Glad you agree.


i just don't get why only the US feels it can do what it wants and every other nation get's dragged into the aggressor role.


The United States has not always come down on the right side of history, but it tends to make amends when necessary. After the Second World War, the Marshall Plan helped Europe rebuild while Stalin set up police states in Central and Eastern Europe. After the Viet Nam War, United States NGOs helped that country rebuild, and American businesses invested capital there.


and to answer your question.

It's just a feeling in my stomach lol.


Try some bicarbonate of soda. But seriously, people who are down on "The Fed" don't seem to realize it is just a Central Bank. All countries have a Central Bank, even Russia, to facilitate financial transactions between institutions and to control the supply of money. The only alternative to a Central Bank is financial chaos.

The agreement between Russia and Ukraine is not how people are portraying it.

The agreement allows only so many troops / weapons / etc. There is an agreed amount of initial equipment / soldiers etc. If Russian wanted to increase troop presence / deploy heavy military equipment (tanks etc) per the treaty / agreement Russia has to submit the information to Kiev for review and approval prior to taking the action.

The agreement also required Russian forces to be in their base areas and they were prohibited from venturing outside those borders with military equipment.

Russia abrogated the treaty by deploying military assets in violation of the treaty.
