Enemy at the gates: Russia rolls in the tanks, armored personnel carriers

 

“I  can only describe this as a military invasion and occupation,” Ukraine’s newly named enemy at the gateinterior minister, Arsen Avakov, wrote in an online statement.

Meanwhile, Russians armed with rifles and wearing military uniforms  stormed into  Crimea’s main airport and took up positions on Friday. Agence France-Presse confirmed that 2,000 armed Russian were airlifted into the area.

The  Russian Foreign Ministry said movements of armored vehicles   belonging  to the Russian Black Sea Fleet were prompted by the need to ensure  security of its base and didn’t contradict the lease terms, Haartez reported.

BREAKING: US Sixth Fleet moves toward Crimea, NATO troops land in Western Ukraine

ww IIIEditor’s Note…

Remember those US warships who were so eager to “protect the Sochi Olympics” ? According to Russian sources they have now been detected moving in the black sea towards Crimea (according to their motion vector). As Russia rapidly completes its takeover on the Crimean peninsula, those ships will be able to survey the situation and gather intelligence for the Pentagon. Simultaneously, NATO troops have arrived at the Lviv region in western Ukraine, possibly in expectation for a Russian backed military coup against the NATO installed puppet regime in Kiev. It remains to be seen to whom the Ukrainian army itself is loyal to – Russia or NATO (it is known, however, to be based on Russian military hardware and tactics). If it decides to declare an emergency situation and martial law in order to neutralize the new regime and sweep the Svoboda Nazi gangs (who have just threatened to “resume Ukraine’s nuclear status” vs. Russia) out of the way, NATO could be facing a major strategic defeat, at least in eastern Ukraine. Either way, the prospects of WWIII have just increased by a considerable margin.

And finally, see Kathy’s post, “Russian Military Permitted to Enter Ukraine.”

Included in the report is a link to Charles Krauthammer’s reaction to the Resident’s statement on the events in Ukraine.

No matter how you slice this pie, a LOT of people are going to get the pits left in the filling.

What’s your thinking about all this?

    Yes, that’s right. zero guts the military, puts fags and dikes on the front lines, threatens Putin, and then skips off. To the golf course no doubt.
    Putin must be shaking in his leathers.

    It’s simply this idealogue’s stance on international relations that has caused Russia to invade Ukraine. Those people can thank our president’s idiotic woosey demeanor for this invasion. Russia’s looking to regain the soviet states that they lost through Reagan’s actions. Great.
