Bah, it is only to discourage rioters from attacking our bases, nothing more. There is no invasion.

First time on the forums in almost 24 hours and I'm flooded with pictures on the topic.

Guys, to clear the status of Sevastopol for you, let me quote Wikipedia:
"The city continues to be the home of the Russian—formerly Soviet—Black Sea Fleet, and is now home to a Ukrainian naval base and has Russian naval facilities leased from Ukraine through 2042."
So the presence of Russian military there doesn't mean that some kind of "Normandy landings" took place in Sevastopol.

T-90's are also a possibility. It would be stupid if russians doesnt use their advanced MBT atm. Maybe they are not deployed to crimea but I would think that they are close to the Ukraine-Russia border.

Ukraine has large number of T-72's and -64's and some T-80's of their own.

Yep, the whole situation is escalating pretty quickly. let's just hope it won't end up in a war...

It is not an amphibious landing invasion yes, but a troop crossing the border is still an invasion, like SEAL or Green Berets stationed at your nearby American embassy walked out and secured Eiffel Tower or those Americans at Rammstein suddenly spread out to Kaiserslautern and secured the Hauptbahnhof train station.

It is still an extraordinary event.

Ahh yes, the rioters in front of russian bases in the Crimea. So strong in numbers, so dangerous. How can you stand the pressure knowing that they outnumber your soldiers 10:1?




Honestly, after Georgia and Syria, this is the latest punch into the face of the international community. Putin is isolating Russia, asking for the next cold war. And right now my heating is pouring money towards Russia for that natural gas for them to continue their wars. I'm so pissed.

Unfortunately, if I get my gas from elsewhere, others will buy that russian gas in return. That's no solution.

Ukrainian volunteers being drafted for the ukrainian army. Kiev today.

RT today reports about 675.000 people having fled from fascist hords in Ukraine into Russia. I just wish I'd see pictures. Then I'd take my hat off to the russians, serving 675.000 people without a single gym being converted to dormrooms.

So it seems that Crimea is already lost... I wonder if Putin will grab his hands also for Eastern Ukraine. There wom't be war against NATO - there won't be any reaction from Western countries, nobody will risk cutting off Russian gas... There can be only local war between Russia and Ukraine. But if there will be, the question is where Russian army will stop? USA also will do nothing - they have weak president...

So, the options are either a war between NATO and Russia or a war between Ukraine and Russia? Sure, let's bomb Russia and cause a global war that causes death and destruction. Because that surely is a better alternative to just splitting Ukraine into two parts ::).

Yeah sure just let any nation fuck another nation in half and live our lives happily ever after right ? Worked before WW2, worked in Korea, worked in Cyprus. Just because we do not want to be bothered we will let someone else get stuffed. Let the Ukrainians solve their problems on their own and if not I wouldn't mind gearing up for WW3. It's been 100 years since the first one after all.

If not for the nukes and the nato pact we'd already have a war.

And Bouras why exactly should anyone play the role of the world's policeman?
Also ww3 will suck balls, as there is no final goal for either "side" (anyone)
