Bomb Head Mohammed: The bigger question is why yannick has fired his top military guy at a time like this.


I'd imagine that some derivation of the phrases "I gave you an order, mister!" and "Well, I told you to stuff it, Mr. President." were involved.

I dunno.. Putin is probably in a pretty bad mood today and once he.. uh.. hears.. uh . . about Alexander Ovechkin falling off his hotel balcony... uh , if Ukraine asks for hsi help he just might send it.

 I also wonder how these Un sanctions will work?  Russia is on the security council and could easily block this.. ala USA/Israel issues

Either way this is BS, just break the country up and let the Western Ukrainians run their own deal with the west. Poland can't be amused by this either.

zimbomba63: vpb: devildog123: Do these guys have any troops with guns on their side, or are they just hoping that the central government won't drop the Army on their laps and tear them apart?

The Minister of Defense has stated that the Army isn't going to get involved.

Besides, Ceausescu tried that and he ended up against a wall.

Always my favorite scene, Ceausescu and his wife, sitting at the table, threatening the military officers, while outside the firing squad is being formed up.  Well, bye!

2014-02-19 04:31:04 PM  
My fear is once Sochi is over and all the fanfare dies down, Russian Federation tanks and troops move in to Ukraine to support Yanukovych and are stationed in eastern Ukraine. That would be very very bad.

I hope I'm wrong but I'll check back on this post in a month and hope this post does not become self prophetic.

rockradio1: If this is even remotely successful in the Ukraine, look for Belarus to erupt and Minsk to become a battleground that's far worse.

If Ukrainians thought they had it bad -- take a look at the near dictatorship and staunch Communist hold-outs ruling with an iron fist in Belarus.


Yeah, except that while Ukraine is heavily split between pro-Ukrainian/Western and pro-Russian/Eastern halves, pretty much all of Belarus (at least the people who haven't already emigrated to the west) is fanatically pro-Russian, perhaps even more so than Russians themselves. If anything, they would probably love the idea of becoming part of Russia again.

FUN FACT 1: 1991 post-USSR breakup was the first time in history than Belarus has been an independent country.
FUN FACT 2: Only about 10-30% of Belarusians even use Belarusian language as their primary tongue. The rest mostly just speak Russian.

(Western Ukrainian, too! Went when I was too young to appreciate it.)


I've spent two weeks in a Pioneer Camp in Ukraine when I was a child about 25 years ago. It was USSR country then. All I remember is that there were some awesome huts made of lumber in the camp, I also saw a few amazingly big forests, and some beautiful mountains covered with trees. And it was always easy to find someone who spoke Hungarian.

I mostly liked it but I also had some mixed feelings because the food was awful and I almost drowned in a river when we went swimming.

2135 GMT: We now have confirmation, from the President's website, that a truce is in effect:
President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych held a meeting with Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Rybak and members of the Working Group on the Settlement of Political Crisis.

The meeting was attended by Head of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine Andriy Kliuyev, First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine Andriy Portnov, Acting Minister of Justice Olena Lukash and leaders of opposition parties Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Vitali Klitschko, Oleh Tiahnybok.

Following the meeting, the parties declared:

1. Truce

2. Beginning of negotiations aimed at cessation of bloodshed and stabilization of the situation in the country for the sake of civil peace.

It's not just the President saying this, either.

Really a differenct situation. In Georgia, the Georgian army attacked an autonomous region that had be de facto independant for years and which requested Russian help.

Ukraine is a bit more complicated. It would be a lot harder to ppolitically support moving significant troops into the Ukraine to stop what is (at this time) a non-violent declaration of independence. Now, sending a few advisors in is not out of the question, but you won't see tanks rolling across the border. Unlike the Saudis they can't send their army into their neighbours when the masses get uppity without any objections.

If Russia takes action, it is far more likely to be its standard manipulating natural gas supplies, which it has used to keep the Ukraine in line for decades.

That is Russia's standard manipulation tactic but isn't there another pipeline in the Ukraine now? Also I always though south Ossetia was part of Georgia, was there an internationally recognized government at the time shooting started between Georgia and south Ossetia?
