I wonder if the pair of left wing bell ends who attacked me for saying the Ukraine crisis would escalate have heard the latest. These two both claimed to live in Kiev and were certain that now the evil dictatorship had been toppled, the nation would become a westernised progressive democracy conforming to the model laid down by The New World Order.
Funny, I could have sworn I’ve heard lefties saying the same of Egypt, Libya and Syria.
So how’s that smooth progression to an Obama worshipping oligarchy going then?
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) is reporting Russians have set up roadblocks outside Sevastopol, Ukraine. The southern Crimean city is home to the Russias Black Sea Fleet. Today’s front page story reports:
The Globe and Mail saw least a dozen men wearing fatigues supported by an armored personnel carrier standing under a Russian flag at a checkpoint erected roughly halfway along the 80-kilometer road from Sevastopol to Simferopol, putting it close to the administrative border that separates the Sevastopol municipality from the rest of Crimea and Ukraine, writes Mark MacKinnon for the Canadian newspaper. The men, wearing balaclavas, identified themselves as volunteers.
Last weekend Russia sent an army contingent and a navy flotilla to Sevastapol. On Tuesday it was reported residents of the city were rushing to volunteer for self-defense and pro-Russian groups. Crimeans are said to fear violence from Ukrainian nationalists in the northern part of the country where reports suggest that extremist right wing groups now have the upper hand in the interim government.
More than 20,000 people attended a rally in Sevastopol on Monday calling for Crimea to secede from Ukraine and chanting pro – Russia slogans . A larger rally protesting the coup in Kiev was held on Sunday, according to Euronews.
