It is Putin's way of starting a war in Ukraine. This is a flashback to Georgia . Long live Ukraine as a free nation . May it prosper as Poland did and Germany . Hey and no one is hating on Putin but taking over a nation because he wants something from it . Yes it gathers discontent .

  


Actually, the Georgian crisis was the same provocation from the western-influenced Saakashvili. I remember how some people were asking 'what's Russia doing? Why is it attacking?" and then some time later the truth has surfaced - Georgians started it first. Same is happenin now.

Let the Ukraine break up and let those who wish to be aligned with Russia given autonomy.

Without the bloodshed NATO imposed on Yugoslavia.

It's not like the Russians would like the horror of running the tea party states.

Obama should shut up and try to sort out the mess the US has placed the world in.

The US doesn't run the the world anymore ....so go to McDonalds and stuff your mouths for comfort.

Russia should cut gas supply, that will teach them a lesson.

European leaders should more realise that Ukraine is historically part of Russia, but a referendum can answer the question how the situation is today...Anyway Ukraine cannot denie its russian roots

I agree . If they want to go back to Russia so be it but to make the citizens while they live in Ukraine is insane .Ukraine is one nation and wants its freedom . Every nation should be able to decide what direction it wants to go .

  


F reedom from what? Independance and sovereignty? So it can join the United STate of broken EU? Yeah.. Great idea... Join and get your little finacial boost then become broke like the p.i.g.g.s. nations

It would be a good idea to let Ukrainians who want to become Russian, move to Russia and become citizens. Just let the Country of Ukraine move towards Western ideals, without the threats. It is clear the President ran away from his actions. Nothing to be proud of there...!

What is going to happen to the pensions? Who is going to pay that?

Will Sevastopol become the capital of a new Eastern Ukrainian nation?

If the minority from the 'West' can unilaterally destroy Kiev, then Sevastopol is free to do the same.

  


The money they put into the fund should be returned to the people of Ukraine.

I hope these intolerant attitudes toward ethnic Russians are rejected immediately. As a Canadian, it seems obvious to me that Ukraine is as much part of the greater Russian community as Canada is to the US (and British) community.

In my opinion we shall greet those ethnic Russians. Always in such moments The Russian Federation (The Russian Empire, The Soviet Union) became stronger. We have problems inside of us, all have. However, we always had united, become like a monolith to answer the challenges of the time. The history demonstrates this fact.

What's next? Being friends with the EU gives you a weird illness?
When things turn dark-grey towards the Russian Ukrainians then EU might not be very happy at all. I doubt a mass migration will be needed. Fear can be nasty, but having children and elders safe can never hurt for the time being.
I don't like the destruction of statues and other things too. It's very pointless when you need to pick up things and move forward.
It only creates more mess to clean up and heritage is lost.
The man is gone, it's really time to start have decent governing again between all Ukrainians.

Vatican and Austrian empire created synthetic ukrainian identity to create a split between the little Russians and Russians. Galicia was the Piemont of this project. Now the galician ideology is spreading in central Ukraine. Russians shouldn't play this game. the little Russians are orthodox and russians too, and Russia would be wise to imagine a strategy to counter the expansive galician ideology, whose nation-building project is to create a catholic anti-russian Ukraine.

Being biggest country russia must open it doors for like minded people to adopt it as their country. People from India have lot of respect for russia than any other country.

It feels as if Putin is allowing himself to be pushed around.

I don't get it, maybe I'm wrong but for sure he doesn't want the West so close to his borders. I mean from an strategic point of view.

Maybe he doesn't care if Ukraine goes to the E.U.

This whole thing is intriguing and interesting.

The NATO agents are itching for war with Russia.
