AFP (French) has a report up now saying Russians are flowing past border guards into Crimea.

It doesn't come as a surprise, as Putin isn't remotely kidding here. He obviously has claimed it for it's own future autonomy or to correct what a previous Soviet leader did...either way, this isn't Saddam in Kuwait to say the least, on any level.

There are also rumours of US military ships arriving in the Black Sea. And US specialists in Kiev.


shame you cant linky a rumor.

Given that this story pretty much just happened.......

US naval ship runs aground in Black Sea: Pentagon (Last Month..and at least it wasn't a protected Reef this time...Ugh)

....I'd say US naval vessels in the Black Sea should come as no surprise. It sounds like we sent some in for the Sochi games anyway and could have had something left for the Paralympics which were still to come....tho I guess that's a scratch now.

Ukrainian border guards reported a build-up of armoured vehicles on the Russian side of a narrow sea channel dividing Russia and the Ukrainian region of Crimea. A border statement guard spokesman also said on Monday that Russian ships had been moving in and around the port city of Sevastopol, where the Russian Black Sea Fleet has a base, and that Russian forces had blocked mobile telephone services in some areas. The build-up of Russian armour was near a ferry port on the Russian side of the Kerch Channel opposite the Ukrainian city of Kerch, a border guard spokesman said. [Reuters]

Ukrainian media has stopped reporting on the pro Russian rallies in the eastern regions, instead they show the smaller anti Putin rallies being held there.

Just to point out that the BBC is not yet describing it as a war, just read through their spiel and came accross
-'Europe's biggest crisis in a century'
-'unscripted revolution'
-'[russian troops] to stay in Ukraine'
Seems they are saying everything but war, which leads me to speculate that there is intense fighting! it's 1984 over here for sure!
Can anybody recommend any decent English language news sources to follow this one on.... I daren't watch the telly news, it'll send me under i'm sure... balance and intellectual integraty are what i'm looking for and i'm struggling.
I can only pray that those who respect human life prevail and those with grandiose agendas are unable to instigate them. I'm not religious but i do think there is real power in this kind of positive thinking, Let's hope for the best.

my perspective.

Typical conspiracy nonsense. You "believe" it's war and so because the BBC does not match your unverified view on the subject you declare the BBC null and void for news. The BBC have not stated it's war because nobody has (except doom porn merchants on conspiracy sites).

Be careful what you wish for this could easily escalate out of control especially with a gangster like Putin on one side !
