You are 100% correct in what you say. You put it very well and I wish I could star that post 100 times over.
I've been listening to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister ever since the escalation of events in Ukraine and what I don't know is what does
it mean to have 150 thousand troops on alert /exercises.
While Russia claims it has no intention of invading Ukraine, it also stated that it must protect all its important munitions and base in the area. I
had not even thought about the munitions protection aspect, but given what's going on, it makes uber sense to give that lots of consideration,
doesn't it? So given that armed people have taken hold of the Crimean Parliament building, and taking the Russians word at face value for now,
doesn't their reaction make sense so far? Or are 150 thousand troops way too many?
