update.

Russia has made public three interrogations of Ukrainian marines taken prisoner during the Kertch incident on 25 November 2018 and a document (photo) seized on board one of the ships.

According to this document and these videos, the incident had been planned by Ukraine collaborating with foreign powers. Two officers from Ukraine’s military intelligence service were on board the ships to coordinate operations. They were the ones that forbade the marines from responding to messages from the Russians when the war ships entered Russian territorial waters, waters that Ukraine was claiming to belong to it.

Our collaborator Valentin Vasilescu thinks that prior to the incident, some US and Israeli electromagnetic reconnaissance planes flew over the area to detect Russian defences [1].

While Israel is still not a member of Nato, it does have a bureau of liaison within Nato headquarters in Brussels. During the coup d’etat in Kiev, in the context of Nato’s stay behind secret service, thirty Israeli officers and thirty one Israeli soldiers participated in the fighting that broke out in Maidan Square… yet they were fighting on the side of the former Nazi party Svoboda.

The operation at Kertch seems to have been sponsored by Nato. Any why? To create a “Russian threat” which would serve to justify Ukraine becoming a member of the Alliance. This operation was supervised by Ambassador Kurt Volker. The CIA recruited him when he was still a student at Georgetown University. After working at the Agency’s headquarters in Langley, he entered the diplomatic service and became “adviser” to Richard Hoolbroke during the wars in Yugoslavia. He became Victoria Nuland’s assistant when she was the ambassador to Nato and following her departure, stepped into this post. Today he is the ambassador to Kiev.

Yeah if you watch the televised statements you can clearly see they are reading from a script.

Several months ago the UK explicitly warned Russia that any attempt at an economic blockade would be responded to. The UK is deploying an additional 500 marines and is deploying naval assets to guarantee Ukraine's access to the Black Sea.

Near the beginning of 2018 Turkey warned Russia that any further aggression against Ukraine would result in Turkey blocking Russia access to the Bosporus / Dardanelles straight.

oh you mean the nations sanctioning russia dont want russia to # with their little fascist junta that they just installed on their border.

"The UK is deploying an additional 500 marines and is deploying naval assets to guarantee Ukraine's access to the Black Sea. "
because the black sea is a real concern for a north atlantic island.
and you mean the sea of azov, not the black sea, i reckon.

You mean where the soviet government transferred Crimea to Ukraine and then codified it in the agreements after the USSR collapsed? The excuse Russia gave to invade and occupy Ukrainian territory which led directly to the sanctions on Russia.

Nope, not at all.

enlighten us.

Also if we use your logic then Russia needs to vacate the Kaliningrad territory immediately and transfer it back to Germany. We can use history as well to support that action but something tells me you cherry pick history.

us? you schizo?
"In 1783, Crimea became a part of the Russian Empire as the result of the Russo-Turkish War (1768–1774). Following the Russian Revolution of 1917, Crimea became an autonomous republic within the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic in the USSR. "
"According to the 2014 Russian census, 84% of Crimean inhabitants named Russian as their native language; 7.9% – Crimean Tatar; 3.7% – Tatar; and 3.3% – Ukrainian.[citation needed] It was the first official Russian census in Crimea since Ukrainian that held in 2001."

and finally
"
The next day after the referendum, the parliament of Crimea asked the Russian Federation "to admit the Republic of Crimea as a new subject with the status of a republic".[225] Later on the same day, March 17, Putin issued a decree formally recognizing Crimea as an independent state.[226] On March 18, the Russian, Crimean, and Sevastopolian leadership signed the Treaty on Accession of the Republic of Crimea to Russia,[227] which was ratified by the Russian Federal Assembly on March 21.[228] A transition period was in force for integrating Crimean governmental institutions, ending on January 1, 2015.[229]"

enlightened yet?

In fact nobody expected USSR to disintegrate so fast. USSR was only one subject of the international law, no matter how many Soviet Socialist Republics were inside (15). So whether Crimea would be inside the Ukrainian SSR or the Russian SFSR it didn't make any difference, it was still inside USSR.
Things changed drastically when Yeltsin and his Ukrainian and Belorussian colleagues decided to dissolve USSR without even telling Gorbachev. The first to be informed for their decision was president Bush (R.I.P.)
And of course, history rolls back to Catherine the Great, as you show the article above. Thanks God, Turkey doesn't pretend for Crimea anymore.

Still ranting on about Moscow giving away its territory to the Germans Xcath
Kaliningrad was won fair and square and is a compensation for the loss of 27 million people to the murderous German regime. Crimea is Russian pure and simple and shares nothing with your comparison, it's time to accept that Russia has its sphere of influence and near abroad and the west should accept this and give them some room. Quite simply it's non of our business

as I remember from history, Königsberg was found by the Teutonic knights in 1255. The Polish kings had a lot of trouble with the Teutonic knights, something described very well in the books of Sienkiewicz.

At the end of WW2 Stalin wanted piece of Germany and received it. Notice the territory was divided between USSR and Poland. Of course other border changes occurred, that I do not discuss.

The problem now is, any new war in Europe may become a war between Russia and NATO, that at one point will go nuclear.

Most of current Poland is actually German lands until living memory. Poles lived in the east back then in modern Ukraine and Belorussia but moved west by Stalin when he took one third of pre war Germany as compensation for their genocide and murdered or expelled the German natives and replaced them with Slavs. The very fact that any German people are alive today is an incredible miracle after what their government perpetrated in the east, a miracle and something where a debt has still not been paid in any way.

Russia has its back yard and the west should accept that it also has its pride too. Al, the west has tp do is let Russia have its influence over the FSU bar the Baltics and western Ukraine and everything will be just fine.

Looks like the US IS planning on a troop contingent in Ukraine but under a classified status recruiting started BEFORE the incident happened i think So that would mean it's planned or the MIC runs stuff and we're just along for the ride:
