Russia is trembling in its boots on the prospect of Ukraine joining the NATO. Their fears are justified in many a sense. The question is how long shot or wild a response they are going to take to cancel that threat.

Russia in the past, especially when under commie ideology, had a very bad habbit of stomping on its allies, milking them of resources and being a big giant overlooking each step taken by the nation. This was very true for countries beyond the borders.

Russia should have given gestures that such approach ended in 1991 and nations in the middle of Europe have nothing to fear. Such policies need to be addressed and shown in practice. Such actions will save a common man in this world from lots of jolts and shocks in daily lives.

For those interested.
Officers Of 76th Russian Shock Troops Division Operating In Ukraine

Everyone is curious who those unmarked men in unforms that have been seen in youtube clips from the Crimea are. Courtesy of Russian blogger Lev Shlosberg who writes for the newspaper Pskovskaya Guberniya, we now have an answer: according to him they are the officers of the 76th Chernihov (Pskov) Storm Troops Division and have slowly dispersed across key choke points in Ukraine.

From his post, translated by

According to one of the participants in the operation, officers and contractors of the 76th Shock Troops Division have been re-locating to Ukrainian territory since last week. By early this week, there were already more than 100 soldiers. The last of the famous detachments was sent on Thursday, 27 February. They are fully armed, with 5,000 rounds of ammunition per person. There is one truck per 10 soldiers, and they are completely loaded with weapons including flame-throwers. Upon arrival on the territory of Ukraine, they did not report their geographical locations to people, and they were assigned local tasks. Most likely, this was Sevastopol and Simferopol. Emergency troops remain in Yysk, and did not take part in the operation. The barracks of the 76th Storm Troops Division on Margelova Street in Pskov is practically empty.

So it looks like this is what is going to happen:

Russia now controls Crimea. Referendum is going to take place and Crimea rejoins Russia after majority agree.

Next step, Russia instigates problems in East and South Ukraine. Another referendum for a new independent state. Russia and allies recognize and East and West Ukraine are established.

Russia gets its buffer space vrs NATO expecting W. Ukraine to join it in next 3-5 years.

Biggest loser in this treachery are the West Ukrainians who instigated the recent events.
They think EU/West will embrace them with open arms...................NO !! No more sick ducks please !!
They think billions in aid and business contracts will be awarded..............NO !! Sorry your industries are not efficient !!

On the otherhand, Russia was offering both of the points above:
$15B in aid,
more business via Customs Union in addition to $17B in imports that it takes from Ukraine,
more subsidies and discounts in Gas prices for years to come



West worked its rear ends off and still become what it is today. Former commies do not understand that and want to stab their mothers, hoping to get donations and handouts from the debt burdened Western world. Most of these funds even given are quickly siphoned off to offshore bank accounts of the leaders and government bigchicks.

End of THE story for the BROTHEL OF EUROPE. DaaaSvidanya !!

Reminds me of the mission No Russian in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. I hope there isn't an American spy among them to blame the slaughter on.

If the American government has any sorts of sense left in it, it will stay clear of the whole area. Russia won’t be playing about when it comes to the Crimea. And if Ukraine value there independence and want to keep their new government then they need to accept that Russia will want the Crimea back. Unfair yes, but life aint fair!

If we did not have such a weak president this wouldn't be an issue.
