."Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko requests the supreme court of Ukraine to declare that his predecessor, Viktor Yanukovych, was overthrown by an illegal operation

Wrong, the parliament wants to remove the title of president from Yanukovych as he wouldn't be able to receive the benefits that former heads of state are given.

And Poroshenko is actually trying to get that stopped, but of course you refuse to actually understand the truth.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has sent a request to Ukraine's Constitutional Court, asking for designating as unconstitutional the law on depriving Viktor Yanukovych of the title of President of Ukraine because the law is not of "a regulatory character," the court's press service said.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko submitted to the constitutional court of Ukraine the submission on compliance with the Constitution of the law "On the removal of Viktor Yanukovych the title of President of Ukraine". This WAS Reported by the Press Service of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine.

You just believe the first thing you read don't you, because there is nothing that even remotely resembles what your source thinks is the truth. It all has to do with letting Yanukovych keep the title of president and nothing to do with him being removed illegally.

Actually they're not challenging the US much in the Arctic. It's Canada that The threat is addressed to .

...and that challenges the US. Yet another of those pesky treaty obligations. An attack, or intimidation, on Canada means an attack on the US.

That's true, at least Canada would do the same for us .

They would.

Regardless of political wrangling, when push comes to shove, we'll be there for each other.

Historically, Russia does not go around attacking nations. Both Georgia and Ukraine have been responses to Western designs in the area. Russia is merely defending its interests.

No they have both happened because Putin thinks he can go in and overwhelm those two countries under the lies of protecting Russian speaking citizens.

And when he couldn't do that those countries looked west...Putin is the biggest reason those former Russian Federation states started looking West.

Like mentioned before, Russia should not attack Baltics and test NATO. If the alliance does not come to defense of Baltics, then NATO as an entity would hold little meaning.

It won't be a test, as soon as RUssia steps foot into a NATO country the game is over.

NATO countries aren't Ukraine...they will be there to defend their Baltic countries. As far as non NATO countries that is a different story.

you can foresee the potential for a flash point with some instigation of local radicals into occupying buildings which gives the pretext for Russian involvement to "protect ethnic Russians"...

What................Like the USA and European "involvement to protect ethnic" Kosovans in Sebia? Then carving up Serbia to create a new 'nation' from this minority? I remember at the time a Times article saying this was going to unleash a can of worms in Europe and give the the green light to others to do the same. As far as Russia is concerned, what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

NATO will rather CLEARLY state otherwise.
AND thus ...YOU as well.

If Russia, were to go in and snatch Narva from Estonia, I cannot imagine the Germans agreeing to NATO going to war. They would veto any such action right out of the gate.

Until and unless the Russians in Baltics are totally persecuted with daily well being at stake.............until such situation, Russia has no business in the Baltic states.

Germans might not want to fight a war in Europe (from the WWII experiences), but they can shut off the Russian gas and seek alternative, albeit slightly more expensive sources to stay warm in winter. This alone will be a massive hit on Russian economy and geopolitical interests.

Push comes to shove, Germany will as a last resort go to war to honor NATO obligations.

Instead of fighting expensive wars, Putin should give heavy financial encouragements to Russian having more kids and staying at home rather than fleeing overseas.

I would like to sound one warning. Unlike in the previous world wars the UK won't have the resources of the British Empire to call upon in a fight for its very survival. Putin knows this when he is planning Russia's westward expansion.
