    US warns Russia against intervention in Ukraine

    US warns Russia against intervention in Ukraine


    UNITED NATIONS (AP) The United States warned Russia on Friday that any further intervention in Ukraine, including under the pretense of delivering humanitarian aid, would be viewed as "an invasion of Ukraine."

    Power said Russia has not only increased aid to the separatists but has amassed "more and more" troops and hardware near the border, began extensive military exercises this week and launched shells across the border into Ukraine.

    "Therefore, any further unilateral intervention by Russia into Ukrainian territory, including one under the guise of providing humanitarian aid, would be completely unacceptable and deeply alarming, and it would be viewed as an invasion of Ukraine," Power warned.


    I wouldn't draw a false 'red-line' with Russia, because they'll take a lot of latitude with it in the future.

    Haven't we warned them a half a dozen times already?

    At least. But we've never done it with as much a threatening tone. Once we start warning there will be repercussions and don't follow up, that becomes a problem. Putin has little respect for our leadership as it is.

    I was afraid he might do that. He should help the Europeans, not parrot them.

    Putin is the kind of leader that, without warning, I would just keep pulling the carpet out on him with economic power. Reagan broke the former USSR with an arms race in space, so they're soft in that area.

    Putin's govt is to the point of openly and directly disrespecting Obama. They dont care about any US "Warnings". They know to disrespect democrat presidents.

    Yes it does appear as if Russia is attempting to reopen the cold war. Just as they're using the Ukrainian seperatists as proxy fighters we too will probably in turn start supplying arms to the Ukrainian government.

    .... And the cyclical nature of history continues....

    The thing is, that we no longer command the same proportion of gross world product.

    But Ukraine is already invaded from Russia in Ukrainian Crimea. I suppose Power means that such activity in Ukrainian eastern border would mean an invasion also.
