A rticle


MOSCOW — Ukraine on Wednesday briefly severed electricity to the Crimean Peninsula, nine months after it was annexed by Russia, in a pointed reminder of the territory’s reliance on Ukrainian energy sources.

The electricity shut-off came as Moscow threatened a greater rift with the West if Ukraine tried to make good on its intention to join NATO.



Unfortunately Putin couldn't be reached for comment, however his aides said he is "completely in the dark over the whole situation".

It's a really complex relationship despite the pretty much open warfare between Ukraine and Russia. Sadly provocations like cutting off electricity to Crimea just gives Russia more reasons to attack in the South and link up with Crimea and Transneistria.

Since Russia is all high and mighty with international law lately they need to brush up on responsibilities as an occupying power. The same holds true for the Russian rebels in the east and south of Ukraine.

The responsibility for those areas fall squarely on Russia / Russian rebels and not Ukraine.

This is not a provocation. This is Putin getting what he deserves for acting like Hitler and Stalin. If they don't like that fact then they should withdraw from Ukraine and return all Ukrainian territory they currently occupy, like Crimea.

How dare someone stand up to the West instead of just subjugating itself to them.

There can only be one World power, and no matter how many country it destroys it should be hailed and admired as the one and only righteousness in the World.

Evil bastard Putin for not recognizing that !

Im not sure if the OP is confused or if the title is just misleading.......

But putin didnt cut power......the Ukraine cut power to the embattled area that Russia is sympathetic too ,to remind them of how dependent they are to the Ukraine.....

I can tell by some of the responses already by people who are Pro Putin that they have no idea whats going on in the region because they think Putin is the one that did this and are cheering him on lol.....

get your regions and factions straight guys.......

I bet you think I`m pro-Putin, which I`m not however.

I was merely responding to the ridiculous post of Xcathdra and I will bet stirling was responding to my post and also at Xcathdra its post.

Don`t you think we don`t know how the situation is in the Ukraine and Russia (Crimea) ?

I can`t even believe you think we have such low knowledge about the whole situation...maybe try and inform yourself about the general level of knowledge and its differences between Europeans and Americans to not make such a mistake again.

so you would have no problems at all with Russia cutting the rest of the Ukraine off from the gas they need? which would be an appropriate and equal response. after all just as supplying electric is the responsibility of those pro Russian faction in control of the areas they control, supplying gas for little things like heating and cooking etc is up to those occupying and in control of the pro western faction's controlled areas.

i guess if the those of the pro west faction don't like being without that gas they should return power to the legitimate elected government they overthrew.

You really need to read and understand posts before you reply.

You keep demonstrating your lack of knowledge of the situation in every post. How is illegally seizing territory from a neutral neighbor "standing up to America?" Was America's invasion of Iraq "standing up to Russia?"

They have done it before...

Secondly if Russia is going to occupy Crimea then they can be responsible for its energy needs.

I'm pretty sure the naval bases have their own generators. Perhaps they can learn to share....

You don't "stand up to the West" by invading and annexing a part of your neighbour. Russia shelved all hope that Ukraine might want to work with Russia when they started to act like the school bully.

If you took offense then what does that say?

I didnt single out any single person..........

What I did say , which I thought I made fairly plainly...........

Was that people who think that puttin was the one that cut the lights CLEARLY arent familiar with the conflict or the region....

I think that would be fairly obvious by not knowing which one is which.......

But hey if you took offense.........thats not my problem......

But thanks for taking a pot shot at America and eluding to us being stupid for good measure........classy

yes and look at the reaction to when it happened compared to the reaction to this which is pretty much the same thing.......

as for Crimea, they have every right to "occupy" it since they leased it from the Ukraine under the legitimate, elected government.

The rest of the West follows the US in all it does and the US is the one who acts like a bully in the World.

Russia is looking out for its interest in the region, and what is the US doing with making a coup in the country next to Russia ?

So yeah, it is nothing more as standing up for its own interest in the same way US did in `62 with Cuba.

It said, I was thinking you weren`t capable of looking it at as anything else as, "if you don`t support the The West its foreign policy, you must be a pro-Putin fan."



Was that people who think that puttin was the one that cut the lights CLEARLY arent familiar with the conflict or the region....


Only the OP is the one who might be confused reading the posts, so you were clearly referring to me and stirling when you said guys, because the other two are anti-Putin.



But thanks for taking a pot shot at America and eluding to us being stupid for good measure........classy


Just a simple logic conclusion which was right on the money.

Er, no they don't. That's a starement that flies in the face of the evidence.

But, like I said, Russia invaded and annexed Crimea. Hardly a successful policy in taking the moral high ground.



Russia is looking out for its interest in the region


Er, Russia is looking out for their own interests, which is why practically all ex Soviet vassals have run from their warm embrace. In Russia, the kleptocracy who runs the show is looking out for themselves.
