The relative calm of the last two weeks as US talking-heads proclaim Ukraine ‘fixed’, Russia ‘under control’, and Europe ‘recovering’ is being obliterated this morning. The storming of various non-Crimean Ukrainian city government buildings suggest round two of the push is beginning and Russia is wasting no time explaining how this will go down. Russian Senator Viktor Ozerov stated that “Russia has no right to [send peacekeepers] unilaterally” to Eastern and Southern Ukraine (unless the UN agrees)… but… “Russia is interested in stability in Ukraine. At the same time, the will of the people must be documented. A referendum is the most democratic way of expressing one’s will.” In other words, “we can’t help you unless you hold a referendum to annex.” Stage 2 is beginning… and it seems Ukraine is getting it as they are preparing to issue a state of emergency.
From Russia with no love – we can’t help you, our poor Russian Ukrainian friends…
