Ukraine: Russian Flag Raised In Donetsk, Odessa, Kharkov
In Serbia ^

Posted on 03/02/2014 7:42:07 AM PST by kronos77

At the moment the square in front of the regional administration building is packed with people holding Russian flags.

The protesters elected Pavel Gubarev, the commander of the Donbass People’s Militia, as the Donetsk region’s new Governor.

For his part, he called on the demonstrators to set up a tent camp in the square in front of the regional administration.

Thousands of Odessa residents have gathered under Russian and Soviet flags in the Kulikovo Field, the Interfax-Ukraine reports Saturday.

The demonstration organizers state there are some 20,000 people, the police says they have counted about 5,000 participants.

The purpose of the meeting is to elect an empowered and authorized representative to speak with the authorities on behalf of the Odessa residents.

In Kharkov, the largest city in eastern Ukraine, pro-Russian protesters managed to break through the cordon of Maidan supporters and captured the government building. The storming was accompanied by clashes and shooting, RBC daily reports.

The Russians are now waiting for some “incidents” that will be used as a pretext for Russian troops to come in to “protect ethnic Russians”.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch Obama proclaims “DON’T CALL MY BLUFF!”.

They have lost 50% of the country - even without Russian military intervention.
Tragedy is, that they, Kiev puppets will try some armed action, and ... war is there...

Not Odessa. Look at the map you posted under your statement.

The Kiev Ukrainian nationalists made a big mistake by attacking the Russophones. This drove away many people who were Russian speakers but would probably have been for a more Western-oriented Ukraine - but suddenly felt that they weren’t welcome there anymore and in fact were going to become targets of Ukrainian nationalism.

I hope not, their value to the EU is greatly reduced. The EU won't war on their own territory to steal farmland, they wanted the rich east, and port south. Russia will protect those like in Georgia, and they have organized and chosen Russia, who is already there.

That, and Obama is a backstabbing coward. It's a dim future for the Kiev crowd.

Never forget that these “people” are the descendants of those who were relocated there after the legitimate residents were murdered by Russia.

There are some who claim the American "people" are descendants of those who were relocated here after the legitimate residents were murdered by imperialist Europeans.

Crimea is Russia’s access to the Black Sea - and Russia has controlled it for at least 3 and a half centuries.

No way they will give it up now.

"All in the Eastern part of the country. "

Not Odessa which is west of the Dnieper River.

Perfect staging point for the support of the 2000 Russian troops already in Moldova (Transnistria).

Essentially making "Ukraine" a land-locked country with no prospects.

All the way to the Romanian border....inclusive of Moldova, which still wants to be part of Mother Russia.

In fact, we are likely to rue the day we brought Romania and Bulgaria into NATO, as those countries stand in the way of Russian reach into Serbia.

During the Cold War, Bulgaria was the most zealously pro-Soviet of the satellite countries, but I don't know if that means anything for their current attitudes. They lost their bit of Aegean coastline after WWI so they don't have that to offer Russia.

Russia poses as the friend and protector of Serbia when it serves Russian interests and ignores them the rest of the time. Since Montenegro became independent, Serbia doesn't have an Adriatic coastline so they can't offer a Mediterranean port (ships from the Crimea must pass through the Straits to get to the Mediterranean).

Most of Moldova was part of Romania until 1940. The strip east of the Dniester may be pro-Russian but I don't know about the rest of the country.

Obama is an historic godsend to Putin in this Ukrainian affair.

Without Obama Putin could not have pulled it off.

Has Obama commented on how all this is affecting the GLBT community yet?
