Read this and cry !!!

If there were more people like you around the White House advising the POTUS, US would be a third world nation within a decade. More money into defense would mean more cuts in other areas and chain reaction goes on.

One village idiot Texan slipped/conned his way into the Oval Office and took the main chair also...............however he brought the US onto its financial knees from his deeds and decisions and cursed the future generations all the while his types started to loot from the pension accounts of the old and frail.

With all this going on.........you are harping on Sovereign Nation logic and inviting the Cold War II.

Retarded !!

Further sanctions against Russia are outlined, tied to Ukraine’s presidential election




The Obama administration said Thursday it is ready to target broad sectors of the Russian economy if Moscow continues what Washington calls a campaign to sow violence and disrupt Ukraine’s presidential election this month.

Drawing the clearest picture yet of what the next phase of economic sanctions would entail, administration officials outlined possible penalties on Russia’s defense, high technology, engineering and energy sectors.

These sectoral sanctions would be tailored to address particular areas of Russian trade vulnerability, Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland told the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

“The idea here is to use a scalpel rather than a hammer,” Nuland said, by focusing on trade and investment categories “where Russia needs us far more than we need Russia.”

Why make fun of yourself and putin? Nothing else to talk about?

anything on topic?
Like the economic pounding Russia is taking because of Putins inability to take his medication and live in reality instead of the fantasy land he is in?

Or maybe because the pro Russian movement in Ukraine is a extremely violent minority who are throwing their version of a temper tantrum because they aren't getting there way?

Or the fact Putin has no credibility left in the international community except from the great powerhouses of Kazakhstan and Belarus?

Russia would have been better of keeping Boris Yeltsin.

Why the absence of updates?

This thread is usually vivid with comments about Ukraine.

I just read in a Portuguese news site that Putin visited Crimea and that the Ukrainian army recovered a police station captured by separatists.

Is there a lack of info from there?

To answer your question, this thread has turned completely away from breaking news updates from the Ukraine. The last 50 pages or so have been full of approxiamtely the same 5 people or so constantly posting Russophobic opinions and spreading propoganda. Hint hint 80% of the links being spread come from the same western biased sources and are barely updates but more recycled articles....The rest is bickering lol anyways,

There is still some good info and updates in here though for sure if you are willing to dig.

I found this interesting

Putin marks Victory Day in Crimea as Ukraine violence flares




(Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin flew in to Crimea on Friday, marking the Soviet victory in World War Two and proclaiming the success of the peninsula's seizure from a Ukraine that Russia says has been taken over by fascists.

In east Ukraine, where pro-Moscow rebels plan a referendum on Sunday to follow Crimea in breaking from Kiev, several people were reported killed in the port of Mariupol, one of the bloodiest clashes yet between Ukrainian forces and separatists.

The head of NATO, locked in its gravest confrontation with Russia since the Cold War, condemned Putin's visit to Crimea, whose annexation in March has not been recognised by Western powers. He also renewed doubts over an assurance by the Kremlin leader that he had pulled back troops from the Ukrainian border.

The government in Kiev called Putin's visit, his first since the takeover of the region two months ago, a "provocation" that was intended deliberately to escalate the crisis.

The pro Russians havnt figured out the journalists could be there best friend if they stop mistreating and torturing them. They want so badly to control the information but should be trying to control the story.The journalists can be easily used if you do it right look at the Palestinians there good at it. Instead they keep reinforcing the same image to the west there violent and oppressive.

For Pro-Russia Militants, Ukraine's Journalists Are Bargaining Chips




KIEV, Ukraine — With tears running down his cheeks, Ukrainian photojournalist Yevhen Hapych tells a nightmare of a story about the time he and his brother were kidnapped and subjected to psychological and physical torture.

“They [the captors] filled our ears with cotton, blindfolded us with a thick bandage. We could hear something, but saw nothing. We were placed on the floor of the car. It was like a police car, because it had a siren,” Hapych told Ukrainian news station TSN in an emotional interview just after the two were released last Friday.

Lol in other threads perhaps but this thread is majorly western propoganda at this point....anyways, indeed it does. I am dealing with it fine.

I think Putin's visit to Crimea is also being blown out of proportion. So he was there on Victory Day during a celebration so what? At least he was not off on vacation somewhere. To me it only makes sense that a president would make an appearence toin front of his new citizens....Whether you agree with the annexation or not, Putin visiting just makes sense. Surpised it did not happen sooner.


NATO will be offended at anything at this point.

Ok, it's enough to be on out of town and on the road for a couple of hours to miss a very bussy day in Ukraine:

Apart from the shoot-out in Mariupol and Putin's visit to Crimea after the Moscow parade we had:

Russian Deputy Prime-Minister Dmitry Rogozin was in Transnistria, the breakaway Moldova republic, for the 9th of May festivities:

pressimus.com...


Putin is in Crimea, nuclear weapons are in Moscow's Red Square, Russian-backed militants are parading APCs through Slavyansk, but there is another message Russia is sending -- Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin is celebrating Victory Day in the Breakaway Moldovan region, Transdniestr. RFE/RL reports:

Rogozin, the Russian president's special representative for Transdniestr, said in Tiraspol May 9 Russia would do everything possible to guarantee the security of the self-declared republic.

He suggested that the government in Kyiv posed a danger to Transdniestr, which is between Ukraine and Moldova.

"On the borders of Transdniester a genuine blockade is being set up," Rozogin said, referring to Ukraine. "They don’t allow men 16 and 60 years old into neighboring Odesa, this speaks of the fear the fascists there are experiencing."

Rogozin arrived May 8 after a delay he said was caused by Ukrainian authorities denying his plane access through Ukrainian airspace.


A family's car shot at a Luhansk checkpoint close to the Russian border, mother and father dead 10 year old daughter hospitalized:

hromadske.tv...


In Lugansk region separatists at one of their checkpoints shot the car, which was a family of three. It is reported by "The Island " , citing a source in the local SBU.

According to the message , May 9, around 2 am on 850 km of Rostov -Kharkov in the area of ​​Novi - Borovitsa , 15 km from point " Dolzhansky " were found 2 cars Toyota FJ Cruiser with lots of bullet holes . One car was a dead body in the other - the corpse of a woman and wounded 10- year-old girl who was hospitalized in serious condition.

As we found out , the man and the woman - a married couple , girl - their daughter.

According to witnesses, the car did not stop at the request of the militants who staged a road checkpoint and were fired from automatic weapons.


More reports, with photos, allegedly shoinwg separatists deploying anti-tank weapons in Sloviansk:

pressimus.com...


This picture appears to show a man, wearing a St. George Ribbon and dressed in the classic garb of Russian-backed separatists (or perhaps Russian Spetsnaz in eastern Ukraine), hiding behind a barricade. Ridus, a Russian citizen-journalism outlet, reports (translated by The Interpreter):

A few kilometers from Slavyansk, outside of Semenova, militia are putting up a new checkpoint made out of concrete blocks. They will guard it with the help of anti-tank weapons, Andrei Krasnoshchekiv, a Ridus correspondent reports.

But that's not an RPG he's looking through. It appears to be a 9P151 launcher, which could fire either a 9K115 Metis or 9K115-2 Metis-M missile, an advanced Russian anti-tank weapon.

Is the picture real? We've seen the Slavyansk separatists use heavy construction equipment to construct barriers like these. The man is wearing a St. George ribbon. The picture does not appear to have been uploaded before now.

So it's possible that this is one of Slavyansk's Russian-backed separatists, using a highly advanced piece of Russian military weaponry. Where did he get it?

Who the bloody Hell is head of NATO to approve if Putin to visit Crimea where 97% of citizens voted to become a part of Russia.

It is NATO nations in the first place who spoiled the peace and normal lives of Ukrainians.........via covert NGO/CIA mechanisms.
