I do not watch this TV channel (RT) and cannot judge. These are facts (easily verifiable if you are able to go beyond the BBC propaganda), except for the last sentence which is just my guess.

Do not mean to change anybody's mind, all are grown ups and some are pretty old :-) Just wanted to advise to study different points of view and sources of data and information. I look through Russian (gov and opposition) sources, Ukrainian ones, also can read/watch TV programming in English and French . I understand that it's difficult for those who speak English only, but why rejecting other point of view immediately...

I lived many years in a country in the Soviet block and that taught me few lessons how they dominated the area. If someone says that 97% of population voted to leave but there are only 58 to 65% Russian (depends on the source of information) and the rest are mostly Ukrainians and Tatars than I would call it bollocks.

I guess to get back on topic we should discuss what , if anything, would be done to support Ukraine if there was an incursion - or perhaps somewhere like Moldova???

ORAC: When has criticism ever gotten Mr Putin to change his course? He seems to be very much a "my way or the highway" sort of leader.

Just incredibly surprised any paper had the nerve to print the piece - and that the columnist hasn’t been arrested.

Although he he could be found to have thrown himself off his roof or out his window in remirsevover the next few days......

Poroshenko declaring War if he is relected. Wonder how many stuffed ballot boxes there will be. I want the comedian to win.
