Look's like the Russians are baiting the Ukrain to retaliate and look like the bad guys, giving Russia an excuse to use military force.
Using Russian supporters like this hoping for one to get killed so they can claim to be the victims and use military force in the name of protecting their people.

A far cry from the counter propaganda that pro Russian civilians are feeding the Ukrainian troops they have blockaded from advancing to set up a defensive line near Crimean territory....
Ukranians are living a strange and foreign created dichotomy ...........................................

Given that the majority of Crimeans are ETHNIC RUSSIANS...the fact that they are doing this doesn't surprise me at all. Perhaps you missed the ten's of thousands of Crimeans in the streets drinking champaign and celebrating their return to Russia.

In any event...the US/EU is going to fail miserably at trying to impose it's will on the Crimean people. They voted overwhelmingly to reurn to Russia.

Deal with it. This is what self determination and democracy looks like.

Not sure some of this article makes any sense. Russians ram the gate, there's rifle fire and stun grenades going off. Then the Russians hold the Ukrainian soldiers at gunpoint. Then the Ukrainian solders go to the parade grounds and sing songs so the Russians let them stay a while and give them time to decide to go peacefully back to Ukraine? Huh?

Armed men streamed inside the air base and pointed their guns at Ukrainian soldiers, who were unarmed. The Ukrainians were reported to have lined up with their backs turned to the Russian forces, singing the Ukrainian national anthem . Explosions were also heard, believed to be from stun grenades.

Maybe I just need more coffee.
