Several Ukrainian bases have reported threats from the Russian military

Some bases are surrounded by pro-Russia militia and unidentified gunmen

Pro-Russian mobs attempted to storm a region government building in Odessa

In the eastern city of Donetsk, pro-Russian protesters occupied a floor of the regional government building http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-26424738#

But in a sign of concern among Russian liberals, members of Putin’s own human rights council urged him on Sunday not to invade Ukraine, saying threats faced by Russians there were not severe enough to justify sending in troops.

Ukraine, which says it has no intention of threatening Russian speakers, has appealed for help to NATO, and directly to Britain and the United States, as co-signatories with Russia to a 1994 accord guaranteeing Ukraine’s security….

Putin’s justification citing the need to protect Russian citizens was the same as he used to launch a 2008 invasion of Georgia, where Russian forces seized two breakaway regions. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/02/us-ukraine-crisis-idUSBREA1Q1E820140302

About protesters and money. People themselves gave their money to support revolution, those people who stand on Maidan. Many of us have gave all the money that we had(a lot of people have a monthly income $100-200 for a family, they survive, it is not life), because all understand that it is a last chance to change the situation. We are buying food, water, medicine, equipment etc by ourselves, no one gives money to us, people from all the country give their money for to support those who stands on the main square – Maidan. Would you agree to stand for 3 months(while there was a temperature -30C) on the square, sleep on the floor(as a best), put your life and all your family under risk just to get money? No, of course. We are standing there because it gives us a chance to save our children and their future.

About policemen. There is no police in Ukraine… at all. Also there are no ‘classic’ criminals, as such. The criminals are the police. Police do not allow criminals to be, because they control everything beginning from prostitution, drugs and ending by trafficking of children.
They can arrest anyone on the street, blame him in drug trafficking (by putting drugs into his pocket or into flat during rummage) or in someone’s murder in order to improve the statistics or just to get money from their victim. During these few months police

About Parasiuk. He is not a radical, he is the same as all of us, millions of Ukrainians, who are in deadlock.

About Ukraine and Russia relationships. Please read history carefully, not that history that is given by Russian killers. Find some neutral sources. During last 100 years russians killed ~15 millions of Ukrainians. Can you imagine this in you country? Please read about Holocoust – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Holocaust_in_Ukraine. During First and Second World Wars russians killed millions of Ukrainian people(mostly from West of Ukraine), a lot were deported http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Population_transfer_in_the_Soviet_Union.
Russian KGB officers are slaves of devil. They were killing little children by torturing them so that parents could see that and vice versa, murdered parents in eyes of their children. Please also remember about sexual violence of russians http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_during_the_occupation_of_Germany.

And in these years our president wanted to bring that horror back, he wanted us to become slaves of Russia. We said – ‘No!!!’. That is why we are radicals?

Please remember that most of people have $200 income per month for whole family.
And our president and all of government, heads of police etc have this:

Ukraine’s former president Viktor Yushchenko, the father of five children, liked to describe his country as a ‘sleeping beauty’, awaiting her prince. After the Orange revolution of 2004 it looked as though the fairytale had come to its happy end, but eight years later it is obvious that Ukraine is still sunk in a deep, lethargic sleep.

For three years now the government led by Viktor Yanukovych has been dismantling democracy in Ukraine. In its latest report on world press freedom, the organisation Reporters without Borders places Ukraine in 126th position (out of 179), between Algeria and Honduras. In 2009, just before Yanukovych took power, it was in 89th place, but the new president decided not to tempt fate any further by playing the game of western values.

Two perceptions of reality exist side by side in Ukraine. The first is that shown on television, the main source of information for 87% of the population, owned by the country’s oligarchs and so obliged to remain loyal to the regime. The second, for the small minority of Ukrainians who use it, is that of the internet, where opposition voices dominate. …

The main result of Yanukovych’s media takeover has been to stop corruption allegations leaking from the internet to television. Since Yanukovych’s election as president in 2010, not a single major channel has mentioned the scandal of his out-of-town residence Mezhyhirya. This tale of corruption on a fantastic scale would be a sensation anywhere in Europe, but in Ukraine it is simply a non-story. The government owned estate, formerly used by Ukraine’s communist bigwigs, is now 140 hectares of presidential private property (an area almost the size of Monaco) with a palatial residence where a single chandelier cost $100, 000.

The interesting thing, however is that although television has made no mention of the president’s scandalous palace, it seems that the public is well aware of its story. A poll commissioned by the popular internet newspaper ‘Ukrainska Pravda’ showed that 42% of Ukrainians know about the machinations around the president’s residence despite the silence of the TV channels http://www.opendemocracy.net/od-russia/sergii-leshchenko/two-worlds-of-viktor-yanukovych%E2%80%99s-ukraine

Actually, I agree. Putin doesn’t want to invade Ukraine right now. He wants to start a Ukrainian civil war. And THEN invade.

Merkel saying Putin doesn’t live in reality is fine, but it appears we are all now living in Putin’s reality. He’s acting, others talking.

………………
ry Kasparov ‏@Kasparov63 Mar 1 It is essential to watch Putin’s propaganda inside Russia & abroad. He needs the people to go along, so propaganda must rival his actions.
Garry Kasparov ‏@Kasparov63 Mar 1 How one man or a few leaders become brutal mass murderers is not the key. It’s how millions of normal people come to carry out their orders.

Garry Kasparov ‏@Kasparov63 Mar 1 “What would YOU do now?” misses the point. Deterrence works on a track record. Every time you don’t act, you invite the next, bigger crisis.
Garry Kasparov ‏@Kasparov63 Mar 1

I wrote in 2007, before Putin invaded Georgia, that he was a Russian problem, but soon he would be a regional & global problem if unchecked.
