Here are four old articles about Russia and the Crimea…

For years I have been telling about the Crimea and what will happen if the west continues to push Russia around…

The head of the State Duma committee on CIS affairs, Alexei Ostrovsky, said in April that Russia could reclaim the Crimea if Ukraine was admitted to NATO. Media reported that President Vladimir Putin issued a similar threat during a closed-door speech to NATO leaders at the Bucharest Summit earlier in April.

As I live amongst the Russians, I have come to conclude that there are several areas that are still considered Russian! The Caucus Region, The Crimea and The Black Sea are just a few. When you talk about areas like these, many Russians just automatically consider them Russian.

Ukraine demands Russia to give 72 hour notice on Black Sea Fleet movements. Ukraine passed a bill announcing that Russia must……. “restrict Russian warships at the leased military base at the Black Sea port of Sevastopol, saying the vessels` movements were subject to Ukrainian approval.” (Bad move Ukraine)

Ukraine to increase rent for Russian Fleet by up to 25 times. From January 1, 2009, the Ukrainian leadership is planning to up the rent for the Crimean territories where Russia’s Black Sea Fleet is stationed…… (Can some say, Stupid move?)

Why would Ukraine do this?

My only thought is that they want to lose the Crimea……

In Moscow, coverage of Georgia has so far drowned out the rumblings in Ukraine, but some Muscovites are clear where they stand…

“No one in my circle —and they’re rather well-educated— would say the Crimea is Ukrainian territory.”

What is happening in the world is not a surprise and is totally the west’s doing and fault. The red lines were drawn years ago by Russia and stepping over them by the west triggered the reactions that are happening now…

I have said before, “Russia does not bluff…”
