I guess we'll be waiting awhile to hear from United States officials... This, just across one wire feed:


White House press briefing canceled due to inclement weather, press secretary announces - @NBCNews


An earlier bulletin had mentioned 1-3 inches on the ground with more in northern suburbs. Err.. Well, I'm sure they're busy.

Perhaps the plan is to absorb the advance of Russia until Putin has taken his meds and diplomacy prevails?



Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Secretary Andriy Parubiy has said he believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin has set the world against himself and will find himself in international isolation.

"I'm confident that the plan drafted by the Russian Federation has already failed, and I'm confident that we can preserve the territorial integrity and sovereignty of our country.

I'm sorry but is 2 inches of snow something that stops Washington DC in its tracks? I thought they were used to that type of weather and carried on business as usual in much more snow than that. Stalling, right?

They're moving the status from 'concerned' to 'really concerned' and updating to 'watching very closely'. As opposed to just watching.

About the surrender of airmen and fighter jets of the Ukrainian airforce, reported on tweeter.

This is what the Ukrainian media has to say:


March 3, 4:25 p.m. -- A Belbek military fighter aviation unit near Sevastopol remains surrounded for the third day by Russian soldiers. Ukrainians were pressured to swear allegiance to Russia or face "the most stringent measures," according to Vladislav Seleznev, the Defense Ministry Media Center of Ukraine in Crimea. Roman Beregovy, a Ukrainian 4551 military unit guard, told Ukrainska P ravda that initially the Russian soldiers took the over the house that housed VIP visitors. “The following day they took the space where the planes are parked, after that they occupied the watch," he said. "They took away the weapons. We did not have the order to go into action. We did not respond to the provocation. We handed (over the) warehouses" to the Russians, Beregovyi said. "As of right now, they occupied almost the entire unit. They only parts remained are an administrative building and a flag. That is what we guard." A reliable source with the Belbek military aviation unit said that at about 2:20 p.m. today, a Russian truck with around 30 armed soldiers came to the base, saying that within an hour, the Ukrainian soldiers would be forced to surrender. He also clarified that Russian soldiers demanded that the Ukrainiains give an oath to Crimea, not Russia. There are 300-400 military personnel at this unit, but none has switched sides and are obeying Ukrainian law. There is also a video in YouTube, which shows a Russian Kamaz truck without a license plate number. Their armed soldiers shouted: “We are ready to die today. -- Iryna Yeroshko

Ukrainian PM spoke with Russiam PM Medvedyev. I will highlight one line from Medvedyevs reply:


President Vladimir Putin has not yet decided about giving the order to send Russian military forces to other areas of Ukraine.


Heres the whole text from kyivpost


3, 4:43 pm. -- Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk on March 3 spoke to possibly 1,000 business leaders today in a packed room of the InterContinental Hotel in Kyiv, trying to offer reassuring words. He repeated his stance on the Russian military intervention in Crimea: it is illegal and violates treaties between Ukraine and Russia. He also repeated his demand that all Russian forces must return to their bases. However, Yatseniuk said that he believes the peak of the crisis has passed and that he spoke to to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev by telephone on March 2. Medvedev reportedly said that Russian President Vladimir Putin has not yet decided about giving the order to send Russian military forces to other ares of Ukraine. Yatseniuk said he is happy with the arrival of a mission from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, and expressed hope because not a single shot has been fired yet in this standoff. The Crimean government that took power is illegal and the Ukrainian government has a plan to return security to the region, Yatseniuk said. -- Evan Ostrazhnyuk.

Note Donetsk is the hometown of the ex president of Ukraine and is very near to Rostov on Don.

I would guess they want to completely and quickly consolidate Crimea before moving onto rest of Ukraine. Thats the reason of this haste.
