Moscow Interfax admits forces occupying Sebastopol airport are Russian military deployed "to prevent the arrival of some militants."

https://twitter.com/20committee/status/439312010845495296

If that's actually true and not just an excuse, that is very interesting.


You know what Mark Twain said: "A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."  Especially when it involves Russia.

Is it just me or are every single one of those AK-74's (yes 74) being carried with no magazine in the rifle?

Someone on Twitter said one of the armed men looked like he was carrying an AK-103.

https://twitter.com/alessaprentice/status/439309361593462784

I was not aware that rifle existed.  So, they replaced the AK47 with a smaller more accurate caliber in the AK74, only to put out a new rifle based on the 74 that's in the OLD caliber of the 47 but not actually a 47.

The More You Knooooowww!!!


You know us Texans, if we can't recognize a gun, we'll find one who can.

No you're not understanding it correctly.  The airport is operating normally.

TFA was poorly worded. Russian didn't send in its own military, they provided weapons to a small group of local idiots and told them to storm the airport and parliament while flying the Russian flag.

Now that's not true. The U.N. can make plans to schedule a phone call to discuss calling a meeting to vote on a resolution to form a committee to draft a strongly worded letter.

Which Russia will veto.

This happens here in Indiana. Every now and then, the town is patrolled by hundreds of stony faced armed men in riot gear and gas masks with no insignias and brandishing automatic rifles who will not speak of their identities or intentions. They just stand around and look intimidating for a few days, and then they disappear as mysteriously and quickly as they arrived.
Is this not normal?

Why are the police not rounding them up.  No national insignia,  no reason they cannot be armed terrorists and the police are acting in public interest.

spawn73: NobleHam: Russia's just trying to remind Ukraine what it could do. It doesn't want an anti-Russian government revoking its leases in Sevastopol, so it's asserting that it could just take the whole Peninsula if it really wanted to. Obviously, of course, it couldn't. The Tatars wouldn't allow it, and the Russians don't do that well in hostile occupations, not to mention the international consequences. Russia likes to play tough enough to get what it wants, but it doesn't step over lines that could hurt it economically or its leaders financially.

Ukraine will gain control over Crimea again before long, but Russia will push for a unity government to ensure its interests are looked after and it will likely seek concessions from Ukraine, such as continued favorable trade agreements and an agreement not to seek further integration with the EU and continuing to abstain from NATO.

The parliament of Crimea has announced that they're voting for independence in May, so, there.


One benefit of Crimea declaring independence would that it would make Russia's claims on Ukraine that much more transparently bullshiat the next time Russia takes it over.

Not that it matters much.

Looks that way to me.

The rifle intimidates. Keeping the magazines in their pounches minimizes accidents. 'scuze me, "accidents".


Which is fairly smart. Putin is a thug, but if he's behind this he's being a smart thug.

violentsalvation: And there is nothing the west can do.

If the Ukraine can get its shiat together fast enough, they can petition for EU or even NATO membership. Russia would get noisy about it, but they'd be in a bind then.
