I am searching. I can't find anything else but the breaking headline on RT. I have checked Itar tas and other Russian news sources. If anyone can help that would be great. I am going back to look again.

In my opinion, this is what Russia has been waiting for. One can assume they've been rocking the boat in Ukraine. That's doesn't go without saying the US/EU didn't have their part in this to begin with. I guess we'll see what happens next..

So far, the latest I have is this from AlJazeera -


Two pro-Russian politicians have been attacked by pro-Ukrainian activists in the capital Kiev as tensions grow over unrest in eastern parts of Ukraine, where pro-Russian gunmen have seized government buildings in nearly 10 cities.

Oleh Tsaryov, a pro-Russian lawmaker and a candidate in the May 25 presidential elections, was beaten by dozens of enraged activists in the early hours of Tuesday as he was leaving a television studio.

The activists pelted him with eggs, shouted insults and then assaulted him. Tsaryov's press service said in a statement that he was "brutally beaten". Another Russian-leaning politician and presidential hopeful, Mikhaylo Dobkin, was sprayed with a green disinfectant and had flour thrown at him late Monday. Moscow accused Kiev authorities of condoning such activism. [AP


AlJazeera

Even Twitter is pretty quiet tonight/this morning.

Yes, thanks. But I can't find anything anywhere else.

This is pretty scary. Russia WILL retaliate if blood is spilled.

That is a little old. This just broke 10 minutes or so ago. But thank you for that. According to RT, Kiev has begun military action.

Kudos to "AnIntellectualRedneck" in the main thread for getting this first -

Turchynov: Anti-terrorist operation has begun in northern Donetsk (Live Updates)


11:23 a.m. -- Interim President Oleksandr Turchynov has announced that Ukrainian special forces had launched an anti-terrorist operation in the northern part of Donetsk oblast before dawn on April 15.

"Tonight an anti-terrorist operation began in the north of Donetsk oblast. It will be conducted step-by-step, responsibly, deliberately. The goal of these actions, I want to underline, is to defend the citizens of Ukraine," said Turchynov, speaking before the Verkhovna Rada.


Edit - There is some confusion because it was posted not 10 min ago but the wording "tonight" is used, although it occurred "before dawn".. It's 11:30am there.

Further info that came earlier -


11 a.m. -- On April 14, Danylo Lubkivsky, the Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine, said that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s clandestine operation in eastern Ukraine is directed by the FSB (the successor to the KGB) and military intelligence units in concert with a well-prepared network of trained agents in Ukraine.

Lubkivsky said that the operations in Ukraine have moved into a paramilitary stage. Russia’s plan of action mirrors how it took over Crimea, he added.

First, they recruit and arm professional military, second, they deploy them on Ukrainian territory, third, they hire local radicals to pose as “pro-Russian forces”, fourth, they try to make it look like a turmoil coming from beneath,” he noted.

Ukraine's coup-appointed acting President Aleksander Turchynov has announced that an "anti-terrorist operation" was launched in the northern parts of the Donetsk region early on Tuesday morning, Interfax reports.

"An anti-terrorist operation was launched in the north of the Donetsk region early this morning. It will be conducted in a stage-by-stage, balanced and responsible manner. I would like to emphasize once again that the goal of these measures is to protect the citizens of Ukraine," he said in the Verkhovna Rada on Tuesday."

It appears that the EuroMaidan twitter feed has picked this up as well:

It seems as if the Kyiv Post twitter feed is not updating either. As of 5:15AM EST, the last twitter update for Kyiv Post was 44 minutes ago.

CNN article

Apparently, the news is starting to hit the MSM here in the States, and it seems to be saying the same thing over and over, confirming what has been said here.

So all the people in the east of the Ukraine are now terrorists and I am sure the people protecting the Bundy family are also terrorists !

With the USA provoking trouble with it's ships in the black sea and now Kiev is trying to kill people in the east who want nothing more than a vote on who runs the country that the bankers running the USA are looking for a fight with Russia.

Get the USA out of Europe before they get us all killed I thinks
