See my previous blog entry regarding the situation in Ukraine.
And here from intelNews.org a follow up with key points and much greater elaboration.
Go to intelNews and read it all.
"News you may have missed #869 (Ukraine edition)"
►►US and UK warn Russia not to deploy troops in Ukraine.
►►Analysts touting Ukraine’s East-West division are just plain wrong.
►►The global implications of the Ukraine conflict.
There is NOT a predominant Russian speaking region of Ukraine potentially a break-away secessionist state as has been suggested? Unless that area of Ukraine in the vicinity of the Sea of Azov and Crimea is taken into consideration? I am not sure.
[P.S. ONLY as covered on the News Hour this evening the Crimea has a large and restive Russian speaking population a large portion of which are retired Russian military personnel. Also Sevastopol is home to the Russian Black Sea Fleet.]
