No Russia has had a plan to secure them clearly for a long time, Russia has know for decades Ukraine would end up moving towards closer ties with the EU ever since the break up of the Soviet Union,
Maybe you should concentrate on refuting the info with facts.
Dear Mr. President, You actually claim Russia is "moving into Ukraine...really?" So what do you think Victoria Nuland's $5 billion was for, and all the color revolutions we have been supporting, even after we got our Nobel Peace Prize president, who has made a joke of that award, cheapened it?
We have our State Dept., CIA, NATO and military contractors running all over the place in Ukraine, creating mayhem along with the Israelis. The graft has already started with "children of politicians" lining up to get a piece of the action, like VP Joe Biden's son. The list is growing already, the usual suspects.
In case you forget, we are well aware of the US and NATO plan to march up to the Russian border. We are also aware of Russia's long time relations and investment in Ukraine with its major Black Sea base, huge industrial development, huge energy subsidies which have made products from Ukraine cheaper for Western buyers and giving the EU a trade surplus.
You are right, Amnesty = NGO of NWO.
Pro-Russian separatists have opened fire on unarmed Ukrainian soldiers as they were crossing back into Ukraine from Russia where they had taken shelter from fighting, Ukrainian defence officials say.
The soldiers made their return on Tuesday, the day after Ukraine acknowledged that 311 soldiers and border guards had been forced by fighting with separatists to cross into Russia.
It said they had destroyed their weapons before crossing the border, but the rebels said they had left them behind, enabling separatists to seize them.
"Today at about 6am [separatist] fighters treacherously fired on a column in which there were 195 unarmed Ukrainian troops returning from the Russian Federation," Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for the national defence council, told Interfax news agency.
He had no immediate word on casualties.
The soldiers crossed the border on Monday, leading some reports that they had "abandoned Kiev".
Vasily Malayev, head of the Federal Security Service's border patrol in the Rostov region said the Russian side had opened a safe corridor for the soldiers into Russia.
Late on Monday, Malayev said 180 of the troops had since been returned to Ukraine after consultations with Kiev while the rest were deciding what to do next.

Actually I'm willing to wager most of the educated folks either stay away from these issues or have left ats altogether. Don't mistake the influx of russian trolls as some sort of stamp of ATS approval. You might star and flag yourselves to a self proclaimed majority here, but you are still a global minority. The world knows the truth, no matter how hard you try to change it on the internet.
