    Russian Roulette: The Invasion of Ukraine



    Update:part two


    Russia has invaded the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine and taken over its civilian and military infrastructure. Not a shot has been fired so far, but Russia is using its superior force to intimidate Ukrainian troops in an attempt to get them to surrender.
    Fascinating first hand look at the situation. More videos are coming soon.

    One of the best unbiased video's and reports I've seen.

    Thank you for posting this.

    Also, if you want to see what Ukrainian TV is saying LIVE (not in English however) you can go to the following link:

    Espreso TV - LIVE - YouTube

    Have you see what RT News is saying??? It's almost laughable to see the way the Russians are trying to convince themselves that they're the protectors of peace by their invasion and occupation of Ukraine, and that they are protecting Russia and Russian citizens from... wait for it... Nazi's.

    Nothing new or original, all the footage, faces and opinions were already expressed by BBC and CNN.

    Here is someone that I think manages to produce some good reports from the area - Katie Stallard (Sky News).
    Ukraine: US Halts Russia Military Engagements (The main video report - Tensions Rise In Sevastopol )

    How dare those Russians support a legitimate democratic government over a violent coup.

    The Ukrainian President was democratically elected. The Constitution requires the approval of the Constitutional Court for the removal of the President from office. The Parliament illegally removed the President without the approval of the Constitutional Court, and did so under the influence of violent protestors. Thus making the current government in Kiev illegitimate and the result of a violent coup.

    They voted unanimously, and BTW apparently there's been irregularities in the elections. Democratically elected in the most coarse sense of the term.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    They still didn't get the approval of the Constitutional Court.
