    Ukraine warns of 'full scale' invasion as Russia moves its artillery close to the bor

    Russia could launch a 'full scale' invasion that would see troops overrun Ukraine in hours, a senior security official warned today.

    The secretary of Ukraine's National Security and National Defence Committee Andriy Parubiy claimed Russia has 80,000 troops, 280 tanks and 170 aircraft massed on the border ready to invade.

    'They are adding to this military potential,' he said. 'We have a critical situation on the entire southeastern border. The Russian army is only two to three hours from Kiev.'

    Ukraine's defences would be incapable in the face of a Russian invasion, he said.

    The Russian "Invasion" has already begun and will likely continue until it takes all of Ukraine. Putin knows damn well the NATO alliance will not risk all our war because he wants a chunk of lost property back.

    The people of that country are torn, some wanting the old and some dreaming of the new.....This is far to undecided to fight over.

    NATO, and the U.S. can do noting but bitch about it.

    I think that is a bit dire. No doubt, Ukraine would get creamed, but Russia would struggle. They would especially have a hard time in the western and northern areas of the country, which would undoubtedly put up a violent resistance. As such, I do not expect Russia to just barrel through the country to Kiev. Such an action would be disastrous. You may see an intervention in eastern and southern Ukraine, but not until there is sufficient instability in the country to make action defensible.
