- The key questions are: What will the Russian Bear do? Will Putin send in the Russian army and invade Eastern Ukraine? My belief is: NO! Putin knows full well that US+NATO are trying to provoke a full-scale WW3 against Russia. The real objective is not pro-Russian Ukrainians, it is war against Russia. Sending in the Russian army to rescue the pro-Russian Ukrainians is exactly what US+NATO need, a pretext to start war with Russia. The pro-Russian Ukrainians are largely screwed !
- However, does that mean Putin will not retaliate? Of course NOT! He will increased efforts to destroy the petrodollar. He will destroy the source of the western Illuminati’s strength: the global currency hegemony, the world reserve currency, the US dollar. Once the petrodollar dies, it will cripple the ability of the western Illuminati to finance their military machine, to wage wars, finance terrorism …. etc. It will end their global economic and financial hegemony.
- Ukraine Mobilizes Military, Gives Separatists Ultimatum; Russia Slams Escalation As “Criminal”, Yanukovich Warns Of Civil War!
by Tyler Durden, www.zerohedge.com
If Russia’s intention was to give Ukraine enough “escalation” rope with which to hang itself once again, it may have succeeded when a little over an hour ago acting president Oleksander Turchinov said in a televized address that Ukraine has mobilized its armed forces to launch a “full-scale anti-terrorist operation” against pro-Russian separatists. Furthermore, knowing the only real escalation Kiev can engage in is in the war of words department, Ukraine set an 0600 GMT Monday deadline for pro-Russian separatists to give up their weapons and leave buildings they have occupied in the east of the country, a presidential decree said. It is unclear if this would be the catalyst to launch the military operation, but should Kiev indeed bring in the army it is certainly clear that Russia will respond in kind.
Angered by the death of a state security officer and the wounding of two of his comrades near the flashpoint eastern city of Slaviansk, Turchinov gave rebels occupying state buildings until Monday morning to lay down their weapons.
He blamed Russia, which opposed a pro-Europe uprising that forced Moscow-backed former president Viktor Yanukovich to flee, for being behind the rash of rebellions across Russian-speaking towns in eastern Ukraine.
“The blood of Ukrainian heroes has been shed in a war which the Russian Federation is waging against Ukraine,” he said in an address to the nation. “The aggressor has not stopped and is continuing to sow disorder in the east of the country.”
