The video above and the story below say it all:
Ukraine’s interior minister claims Russian forces have now taken control of two airports in Crimea.
Eyewitnesses in the regional centre of Simferopol say the group was dressed in the same clothing as those who seized the parliament in Crimea yesterday.
One man in uniform told euronews: “We want the people of Crimea to understand that we will stay here for a long, long period of time and that it’s a place not only for Russians and Tatars, but also for Ukrainians, Germans, Jews and they want to live here in peace.”
An airport spokesperson said the attackers eventually abandoned their plans and apologised.
But shortly afterwards a military airport near the port of Sevastopol was seized. There are no reports of any bloodshed or clashes near where the Russian Black Sea fleet has a base.
Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov has described the raid as an armed invasion in violation of international accords.
The United States has not looked this weak since the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. The truth is there isn’t much Obama could do at this point, and Vladimir Putin knows it. A POTUS with balls would have made moves weeks ago to prepare for this – moving troops and ships into position to counter Russian aggression.
Obama did nothing. Other than make speeches filled with empty threats, Obama will do nothing.
We are so fucked. Looks like I’m gonna start drinking early today.
