The Road To World War 3: Russia And Ukraine Are Now Engaged In A Shooting War

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Russian Tanks - Photo by Yana AmelinaRussian soldiers and Ukrainian soldiers are now shooting at each other in eastern Ukraine.  Could this conflict ultimately lead us down the road to World War 3?  This week, a very robust force of “tanks, artillery and infantry” has opened up a “third front” in the Ukrainian civil war in a part of southeastern Ukraine that had not seen much fighting yet.  Exhausted Ukrainian forces are suddenly being pushed back rapidly and many outsiders are wondering how the nearly defeated rebels were able to muster such impressive military strength all of a sudden.  But it really isn’t much of a mystery.  The tanks, artillery and infantry came from inside Russia.  In recent days, Ukrainian units have captured ten Russian paratroopers and there have even been funerals for Russian paratroopers that have been killed in action back home in Russia.  Even though it has become exceedingly obvious that Russia is now conducting a stealth invasion of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin is still choosing to deny it.  But if he did publicly admit it, that would be even more dangerous.  Barack Obama would be forced into a position of either having to do something about the Russian invasion or look weak in the eyes of the public.  And as the Russians have already shown, they are more than willing to match any move that the Obama administration makes.

There has already been much written about who is to blame for all of this, and I am sure that much more will be written about who is to blame in the future.  The western world is blaming “Russian aggression” for the mess in Ukraine.    In return, the Russians point out that it was westerners that funded and organized the groups that violently overthrew the democratically-elected government of Ukraine.  To the Russians, the current government of Ukraine is made up of neo-Nazi terrorist usurpers that are attempting to brutally oppress millions of ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine.

So the Russians seem themselves as “the good guys” in this conflict and so does the western world.  But that is how most wars start.  Both sides usually feel morally justified at the start of a conflict.

In the final analysis, however, is it really going to matter very much who was “right” and who was “wrong” if the end result is World War 3?

If the rebels in eastern Ukraine had been able to defeat the Kiev government forces on their own, Putin probably would have been content to let them do that.  But instead, they had been pushed back to two major cities and seemed on the verge of defeat.

But now it is the Ukrainian forces that are experiencing “panic and wholesale retreat”

Tanks, artillery and infantry have crossed from Russia into an unbreached part of eastern Ukraine in recent days, attacking Ukrainian forces and causing panic and wholesale retreat not only in this small border town but a wide swath of territory, in what Ukrainian and Western military officials are calling a stealth invasion.

The attacks outside this city and in an area to the north essentially have opened a new, third front in the war in eastern Ukraine between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists, along with the fighting outside the cities of Donetsk and Luhansk.

How is this happening?

It is the Russians of course.

In fact, if you talk to Ukrainian soldiers, they are very clear on who they are fighting now…

“I tell you they are Russians, but this is what proof I have,” said Sgt. Aleksei Panko, holding up his thumb and index finger to form a zero. Sergeant Panko estimated about 60 armored vehicles crossed near Novoazovsk. “This is what happened: they crossed the border, took up positions and started shooting.”

The Ukrainian Vinnytsia brigade met the cross-border advance over the six miles of countryside separating Novoazovsk from the Russian border, but later retreated to the western edge of town along the Rostov-Mariupol highway, where soldiers were collapsed in exhaustion on the roadside. “This is now a war with Russia,” Sergeant Panko said.

And as I mentioned above, Ukrainian forces have even captured ten Russian paratroopers.  Rather than denying who they are, the Russian government is claiming that they wandered into Ukraine by mistake

Ten Russian soldiers were detained in the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine, that country’s Security Service said Tuesday, as tensions simmered over the conflict between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian rebels.

The Russian soldiers were captured with documents and weapons on them, the Security Service said.

Moscow has repeatedly denied claims by Kiev that it has sent troops and weapons over the border into Ukraine, where the Ukrainian military is fighting pro-Russian rebels.

Russia’s state-run RIA Novosti news agency cited a source in the Russian Defense Ministry as saying the soldiers had been patrolling the border and “most likely crossed by accident” at an unmarked point.

The denials that Russian forces are actively operating inside eastern Ukraine have become so absurd that even some in the Russian press are openly questioning them.  For example, just check out this excerpt from a USA Today article that was posted on Wednesday…

Vedomosti, a liberal business daily, published an editorial Wednesday on events in Ukraine under the headline, “Are We Fighting?”

It noted the recent capture of the Russian soldiers on Ukrainian territory and reports of “mysterious funerals” of Russian soldiers, some of whom are officially counted dying during training exercises.

“The number of questions that hang in the air of the dead and detained Russian troops on the territory of Ukraine has reached a critical number. Does Russia fight in Ukraine and, if so, on what grounds? If not, then who is in those freshly dug graves or giving testimony at SBU (Russian Security service) interrogations?”

A Bloomberg editorial contained some more details about the “mystery funerals” that have been taking place inside Russia…

One such burial, of two soldiers, took place in the village of Vybuty near Pskov in northwestern Russia, where an airborne division is based. Efforts to conceal the deaths produced a fiasco. Though the wife of one paratrooper had reported his death on the Vkontakte social network, when a reporter, Ilya Vasyunin of the Russian Planet website, called the wife’s phone number, a woman who answered stated that the paratrooper was alive and well. Two reporters, from Russian Planet and TV Dozhd, who visited the cemetery where the two fresh graves had been seen were immediately attacked by men in black tracksuits. Local journalists, however, succeeded in photographing the graves. According to the independent TV Dozhd, the soldiers’ names and wreaths have been removed from the graves.

There are other reports of paratrooper funerals, which are hard to conceal. Soldiers have grieving families who do not necessarily share the authorities’ desire for deception. In any case, Ukrainian troops have captured some Russian paratroopers. For the first time since the conflict began in March, they were able to record interviews with them.

Sadly, most Americans are not paying much attention to this conflict.

Most Americans are not really going to care much about a war on the other side of the planet that does not directly involve us.

But they should care.

Because things are about to escalate to a level that we rarely saw even during the darkest moments of the Cold War.  Relations between the United States and Russia are spiraling downhill, and that could end up having a huge impact on all of our lives.

For example, in my previous article entitled “Russia Is Doing It – Russia Is Actually Abandoning The Dollar“, I discussed how this tug of war over Ukraine was causing Russia to think about moving away from the petrodollar.  Well, it turns out that now the Russians are actually taking concrete steps toward abandoning the petrodollar for good…

The Russian oil company Gazprom Neft has agreed to export 80,000 tons of oil from Novoportovskoye field in the Arctic; it will accept payment in rubles, and will also deliver oil via the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean pipeline (ESPO), accepting payment in Chinese yuan for the transfers, the Russian business daily Kommersant reported Wednesday.

The Russian government and several of the country’s largest exporters have widely discussed the possibility of accepting payments in rubles for oil exports.

Last week, Russia began to ship oil from the Novoportovskoye field to Europe by sea. Two oil tankers are expected to arrive in Europe in September. According to Kommersant, the payment for these shipments will be received in rubles.

That is huge news, but you probably haven’t heard a thing about it on the big mainstream news networks.

Meanwhile, one thing that you probably have heard about is how “Russian hackers” attacked JPMorgan Chase earlier this month

Russian hackers attacked the U.S. financial system in mid-August, infiltrating and stealing data from JPMorgan Chase & Co. and at least one other bank, an incident the FBI is investigating as a possible retaliation for government-sponsored sanctions, according to two people familiar with the probe.

The attack resulted in the loss of gigabytes of sensitive data, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the probe is still preliminary. Authorities are investigating whether recent infiltrations of major European banks using a similar vulnerability are also linked to the attack, one of the people said.

As relations between the United States and Russia continue to decline precipitously, both sides will be looking for ways to hurt one another.

And that won’t be good for any of us.

So let us hope that cooler heads prevail.

But ultimately, this current conflict could end up taking us to a destination that the Cold War never did.

World War 3 will probably not happen next week, next month or even next year, but right now we are on a road which could eventually lead to the unthinkable.

Let us pray that our politicians are able to find the exit ramp at some point.

  • K

    Well you can argue back and forth on who started it. From my perspective, no overthrow of the elected Government, no war. So I would say we started it. The fact that this Country, will ally itself with nazis, arab terrorists, etc. Just shows how morally bankrupt we are.

    • Richard

      K is right. The “Mother of Harlots” Rothschild who rides the American Beast uses our military might & reserve currency of the world ($) to buy politicians and Nations and bash the brains out of other countries so he controls their resources. Redman wants Syria in order to deny gas pipelines from Iran to the Med. Redman wants to deny the Russian gas pipelines thru Ukraine and also to control the shale gas in west Ukraine and also turn Ukraine into a little playground for his star of david banker elite minions. He could care less if the Ukrainian people All die in the process.

      • Mike Smithy

        Your synopsis is outstanding.

        • Richard

          Redman is Rothschild. In German Rothschild means literally Red Shield, as in a coat of arms representing a family name. This was begun by Mayer Amschel Rothschild who was born in Frankfurt Germany in 1743 with a last name of Bauer but later changed it to Rothschild. Do a google search and learn all about this father of banker devils.

          • Mike Smithy

            Good stuff. Thanks for the info.

          • Priszilla

            He must be quite old now when he was born in 1743?

          • Richard

            Sorry to disappoint you, but Mayer Rothschild died in 1812 and has been burning in Hell since.

          • peace angel

            AND about all the other Rothschilds who head up almost ALL of the major banks in the world. THERE is a map with ALL of them on it and the banks they run.

            THE Bush family also at one time had a German name that I can’t remember and they changed their name to come to America and in and around the time that Preston Bush was funding Hitler for the Rothschilds.

            Today they are literally everywhere since the spread of their worldwide dominance began before Hitler was put into power by the Cabal.

          • Richard

            True. They are Global.

      • Hammerstrike

        The best part is that the banksters have invested so much money and armament supporting the regime in Kiev, if the Kiev regime cannot reclaime these territories then there is no way the banksters will get the money back.
        In late 2013, the deal with Russia had to be signed to prevent a default, this was before the revolts happened, the maidan parasites have been under non-stop life support since the secession happened.

        • Richard

          True. But remember. The Banksters first evil deed after coup and overthrow of the elected Gov of Ukraine, was to airlift (Steal, Take Possession) their 28 tons of Gold out of the country. This was priority one. Now, as for future funding needs, the Federal Reserve (which They control) can create as many of these little computer digit ($) as are needed. So, don’t fret about that.

          • Hammerstrike

            Well, if this gold wasn’t in the form of tungsten bullions.

          • Richard

            The Banksters Know what is real and what is Not. Who do you think? salted the fake bars with tungsten? That’s right. The Rothschild banksters.

          • Guest III

            33 metric tonnes to be pricese. Libya, 144 tonnes. Iraq, unknown. See a pattern? It goes back a looong way…

          • ZyklonBaDDict

            All those shekels!

      • Billy Singleton

        Well, we know what happens to the harlot. The Beast turns on her and burns her with fire.

        • Richard

          Amen, Brother.

      • peace angel

        THEY want IRAN’S banks too.

        • Guest III

          They want Iran and every last country not yet subordinate to the fractional-reserve fiat paper ponzi game under their thumb. Cuba, N. Korea, Venezuela, Iran, Russia to name a few.
          Libya and Iraq were holdouts, but then ‘crossed the line’ by selling oil for other than US petro-dollars. Ghadaffi was promoting gold dinar currency for entire african continent. Two inter-continental conferences too many. Bang-bang, out go the lights.

          • peace angel

            Yeah, I KNOW and things are not working for them anymore at all and they have no allies these days other than Israel and the UK.

    • Mike Smithy

      I never dreamed that one day I would be rooting for the Russians to win. But here I am, it’s official. The USA is morally and financially bankrupt

      • Ian

        Careful, you might be called a “domestic terrorist” for saying stuff like that. Although, I agree.

        • Mike Smithy

          I think we all know where the domestic terrorists are. Let’s start with the White House.

          • Ian

            Actually, I don’t know where they are? Could you fill me in? I know some are in congress and the White House. Can you name of a few more that aren’t on CNN?

          • Ian

            How could I forget bankers?

          • Ian

            Probably some zionistic Jews and neo-paganists as well? Did I manage to leave anybody out? Ignorant Americans who don’t know the constitution? Who else did I fail to offend? Lol

      • Hammerstrike

        “The USA is morally and financially bankrupt.”

        1 ) It is not the USA any longer.

        2 ) You have seen nothing yet.

        • Gay Veteran

          amen

    • Airedale

      We may be morally bankrupt, but don’t forget how morally evil Russia is. Ukraine does not have a nice history with Russian occupation. I’m sure Ukraine has no more love for Putin than they had for Stalin and they have a great fear of Russia.

      • Little Aussie

        Loving the Putin.
        Think I’ll apply for a job with the brics bank.
        I’d love to help Putin fund his alliance

      • Billy Singleton

        If we’re going to examine history, which we should, we need to remember that Russia was under the boot of the horrific Bolshevik rulers and their brothers, the Communists. Now, whether they are still covertly under the control of the international cabal is not so clear, but suspicions and paranoia aside, the fruits that are evident point to a revival of the Christian heritage destroyed by the Bolsheviks, a resistance to the demands of the world dictatorship(so-called international communi(sm)ty), and support for traditional values.

        • Richard

          True. Well stated Brother Billy.

        • Guest III

          Bolsheviks were financed by NY bankers. Nikolas Romanov ws reputed to be wealthiest man in the world with hundred of millions in European banks. Elimination of his entire family left no heirs to claim the wealth. And as usual, a few profited mightily….

      • Gay Veteran

        the ones killing civilians TODAY is the neo-nazi backed government in Kiev

        • ExposeRussia

          Neo-Nazi this Neo-Nazi that. Wow your script must be pretty short and taken straight from an East German speech.

          So predictable yet you forget how many Neo-Nazi and Skinheads are in Russia. Oh wait you can’t talk about it because Putin won’t be pleased.

          • Gay Veteran

            hey moron, the neo-Nazis are the ones supporting the coup “government” in Kiev.
            btw, how much is NSA paying you?

    • tayronachan

      We are morally bankrupt…I never thought I’d say it. We can’t continue going around the world destroying and destabilizing countries.

      If we are a Republic founded on democratic principles, then in reality we are all at fault for allowing ourselves to be swayed by the MSM propaganda machine, into attacking countries that never attacked us. Ron Paul was right.

      What have we allowed ourselves become? How are we all going to be Judged when our time comes to meet our maker?

      If it all flies apart, I’ll stand with those seeking a return to the US Constitution, as the Law of the Land.

  • Bill

    The imposter is no help. We should be more concerned with other things the Russians are up to like hacking our banks.

    The economy will be more influenced by the coming stock market crash than Russian problems.

  • Bill

    Glad the trash just left.

  • TECB has gone off the deep end and swallowed the US/NATO/EU narrative, propaganda and lies hook, line and sinker.

    If Russian troops are fighting in Eastern Ukraine, President Putin will let you know. Some may have accidentally crossed the unmarked border as Ukranian soldiers have do so themselves and even fired upon and destroyed a couple of Russian checkpoint buildings. Did Russia respond?

    If and when Putin sends his military into Eastern Ukraine, he will send in his tactical nukes like he did in Georgia In 2008 as a no uncertain warning to US/NATO/EU not to intervene or else.

    Make my words, this entire article is disinformation.

    • bobbobbob

      who is TECB?

      • Richard

        TheEconomicCollapseBlog

    • ExposeRussia

      Tactical nukes were not used in Georgia 2008. You are a delusional Putinbot.

      I hope you earned your monthly vodka allowance as it will be a bitter and cold winter for Russia.

  • It is extremely rare that I would disagree, but it is rather difficult to get a deep analysis of a geopolitical situation such as this by focusing on only one news source, DC fed mainstream media. I do agree in the direction things are heading which is not good for anyone, no matter what side of the fence they may be on.

    • Mike Smithy

      You will never get a comprehensive analysis of geopolitical events through the MSM.

  • Blind

    Michael this is just deal between Obama and Putin.
    Syria in exchange for Ukraine, don’t you see what is going on now. Americans will be bombing ISIS???? inside Syria.
    It is all just game or theater as war criminals call it.

    • alan

      We will bomb ISIS and then just happen to kill Assad. Then the Saudis will stop funding ISIS and they will fade away. The US will look like it won the war and the Saudis get their pipeline, win win. Then the Jihadist will go back to the EU, LOL!

  • Russia is not the only one abandoning the U.S. dollar.
    China is actually ahead of Russia on this account.

    • Andrew

      correct, but Russian currency is weak and the trend will continue unabated

      • Gay Veteran

        LOL, the petrodollar is dying

  • Hey ho Steverino

    The Rothschild Empire wants Ukraine so that they can loot it. The Russians don’t want an imperial banker satrap on its border because they know they’re next. The missiles circling Russia are no accident. After 50 years of M.A.D. thermonuclear “cold war” the money maniacs are at yet again.

    • peace angel

      YES so true. THEY are ultimately going after Iran’s banks and hope to kill as many civilians as possible along the way.

  • Hey ho Steverino

    The BRICS may be a breakway froce from the Rothschild Empire or they may be owned by the Rothschild Empire. If the former the empire will try to destroy them. If the latter the bankers will sell arms to both sides – at interest of course.

  • Anthony

    Doubtful Obama would take time away from his busy golf schedule to consider going to war.

    • Richard

      You got that right.

  • Bruce

    Putin can do ANYTHING he wants to in the Ukraine. Invade, annex or destroy and we won’t do a darn thing except some trivial economic sanctions. Why? Because it most certainly would be a world war and one that has China and Russia as allies. A war we certainly would lose hands down.

    • Phil from Germany

      Yep, more or less my opinion as well. The other question has got to be, how much support would the US from the rest of Europe get ?. Strong anti sanction mood here in Germany.

    • Kirill

      Invade and destroy is US foreign policy not Russian. Russia is trying to keep peace as much as possible.

      • Andrew

        are You blind?!
        Putin is bolshevik like his grandfather & father! Russia and peace HAHA look what they did with Polish elite few years ago, how they treat they neighbours, how they constantly violate NATO’s members borders, look at they appalling army exercises – always attacking others, never defending themselves, look at hackers attacks, how Kremlin lies non-stop about everything, how they distort history, hidden files and persecute political dissidents, where are numerous cultural treasures reds have stolen en masse from other nations PRIMITIVE BARBARIANS!

        • chrisalien

          I think YOU are the blind one. Russia is no longer RED…they all left and are living the life of luxury in the USA, Israel or the City of London.

          • Andrew

            no! they didn’t severe ties with Kremlin – don’t trust my words, look for recent comments made by some of them from Swiss [after Swiss government took more drastic steps along with Anglo-American sanctions]. Don’t be naive – in Russia is impossible to be super-rich without ties to secret services, and as old saying goes: “once with SS = always with SS”.

          • Richard

            And who do you think the Super Rich in this country have ties to?

          • Andrew

            good question Richard!
            in the USA the super-rich own these services, in Russia the ss elite owns all strategic sectors of the R.Federation

          • Andrew

            The collapse of the Soviet-Union…. That is what they wanted you to think!

            I tell you this, the Polish leaders where killed by nano-trees that grows in seconds, soon the Berlin wall will re-appeare and they are also using the evil powers of science and communism to bring Lenin himself back to life!

            there wasn’t a problem until the U.S. sponsored a neo Naz I backed coup against the democratically elected government of Ukraine. Then the coup government started oppressing the Russian speaking people of eastern Ukraine.

      MH-17 was shot down by the Russians!!, but still no audio released from the flight recorder, Kiev tower or Brussels control.

      • peace angel

        MH17 was shot down by Ukranian fighter jets at the direction of the US. THAT has all been proven on Before It’s News by lots of pilots.

          A wild putinbot has appeared !

          Oh please research the Su-25 service ceiling and you will see that even fragments of 30mm Gsh30 don’t make those kind of impact holes.

          Only a Buk-M1 system can cause such an airburst fragmentation.

          Your story is full of more holes than Russia’s corrupt system.

          • Gay Veteran

            why hasn’t the US released the satellite photos? or the Ukranians released the air traffic controllers tapes?
            because they do NOT support the US/NATO case

            Oh please resorting back to your old Putinbot script.

            There is a good reason why they haven’t released them and that is for you trolls to find out.

          • peace angel

            WHAT STORY???

            I did not recite any story. I referred my fellow commenters to DO their own homework and go read the pilots accounts.

            ACTUALLY, there is NOW proof that the Israelis did this with our assistance.

            THERE is pilot PROOF that the Ukraine jets fired an air to air missile that took that plane down. THERE were lots of them analyzing the whole thing from day one. HOW does that make me a Putin anything??? IT does not.

            I KNOW who he is and I KNOW what he stands for and I KNOW he also signed AGENDA 21. However, I also KNOW he has either changed his mind about killing off 90% of the world’s population and creating a ONE world order OR he has the best strategy EVER in getting the whole world to follow him out of a worldwide UN CABAL take over.

            Either way, I KNOW the US is the leader of the NWO and the take down of the US economy and the US dollar and I KNOW 90% of the Ostrich Nation is UNAWARE of who the bad guys even are and this is why I am getting out of here and expatriating this once great nation.

            I could care less about your technical BS about what they used to kill all these AIDS research scientists. I only needed to KNOW who did it and WHY. THEY had a cure. EVERYONE in the past 100 years with a cure GETS KILLED.

            NOT only that there is real evidence this was NOT MH17 BUT was actually MH370. THE bodies were badly decomposed that hit that field and they were FROZEN. THE US did not EVER go to investigate it. THEY already KNEW what happened. THEY caused it to be able to try to blame Russia.

            Putin has been threatening to tell the world that 9/11 was an inside job and let the Ostrich Nation KNOW the truth.

            90% of the NON propagandized world KNOWS this already. THE proof is all over the place. ONLY stupid Americans who spend all their time trolling the internet DO NOT KNOW.

            Americans are the only ones who are flailing around in the dark. EVERYONE else KNOWS we are all headed for concentration camps.

            I didn’t have a story and neither do you. I gave no indication that I am a Putin fan, but believe this worldwide he has far more support than the US or Obama has AND that is the only thing Americans need to be concerned about.

            Bla Bla Bla… You Putinbots are really desperate these days. I guess you have to make up for the massive capital outflows from your Mother Russian right?

            You also have no idea of what you are talking about if you flaunt the Su-25 story around or even believe it.

            Then again it is pointless to argue with Putinbots such as yourself. I hope you earned that Ruble well.

          • peace angel

            You must be ON something or just have the world’s WORST reading comprehension.

            I do not and have never lived in Russia—mother or otherwise and have never been paid in RUBLES. My dad went there when I was in the 6th grade to a Cattlemen’s convention and HATED it, so I have NEVER even been there and have NO allegiance to Putin or his country.

            And THERE IS NO Su-25 around any of the places I get my news. I have NEVER read anything about Su-25 either.

            My story right now is ALL over Before It’s NEWS, the whistle blower news blog compiled by hundreds of insiders and others and I have vetted all the sources I reference and NONE of them are EVER wrong.

            TRUTHER pilots for 9/11 are a group of guys my brother flew with in the Air Force and two of them fly with him at Delta today. ALL of them are 40 year pilots and KNOW their stuff. IN addition, numerous other pilots got the truth out about this false flag and now it is ALL over the world except for on MSM news in the US.

            I don’t just read any story and BELIEVE it. I am a forty year investigative reporter who is ONLY paid to tell the truth to underground news sources.

            You are just looking for someone to call names and to fight with. I am not that girl.

            I hope you someday find the truth about what is going on under your nose before you are herded into the camps.

            K who comments just below me and who has been a long time commenter here has also said that WE started this and 65 people agree with her. It is you who is either an Obama troll and not very good at it or you are just a pathetic troll. Either way, you bore me.

            You have taken this GOOFY stance of exposing Russia and it makes you sound as uninformed as Obama. Are you on a golf course??

          • ExposeRussia

            Bla Bla Bla… You sound incredibly desperate and hyping it with phony credentials isn’t helping your cause either.

            Putin isn’t the Angel or the Savior you think he is. Just look at what happens in Russia with investigative journalism or the corruption that is rampant there. Lets not even mention how many wars Russia has been involved in and the false flags orchestrated by Putin for the Second Chechen war.

            Investigative reporter more like an idiotic troll and Putinbot who has never covered Russia.

    I doubt this will go far. I suspect the Russians will push them back and arm the rebels and pull back is my gut feeling.
    The US will dupe Spain or Italy into sending troops there to provoke the Russian’s a little more. No body wants any 100 kiloton mushrooms clouds over their cities so pick your fights wisely.

  • chris

    As a spokesperson for the White House recently said that USA would not respect borders in matters of National Security why should the Russians respect them? This is equally if not more so a matter for Russian national security.

    • Andrew

      How about their neighbours? their voice don’t count?! I personally give a f… what murderous Russians rulers what; they don’t even care what they own citizens want, so why should we…?! Your point of view is weak – tell us where are the limits of their National Security? Poland, maybe Germany, or maybe Holland, or [like Lenin used to say] Atlantic coast? The phrase “National security” can be used freely by any regime to crush any opposition domestically or abroad. Do not forget: it was Kremlin who invaded Ukraine, not the other way around!

      • chris

        The phrase national security is often used by the fascist regimes in the USA and UK. Ask them where the limits of their national security is. Don’t forget it was the USA that has engineered all of what is happening in Ukraine. Your point of view is basically worthless because you don’t recognize the hypocrisy of your fascist overlords.

        • Andrew

          I bow to no one but God Almighty! I’m not the citizen of USA nor UK so do not jump to wrong conclusions. You misread what I wrote, besides this very conflict is more complicated than bipolar cold war-like struggle.

      You are correct. It’s the Banksters fight. Same as it ever was. Young Soldiers, Airmen, Marines and Sailors die, and the tax payers finance it only to enrich the oligarchs. Just once, I wish our troops would object and refuse to fight as conscientious objectors.

      • XSANDIEGOCA

        I think the Draft needs to be brought back. Nothing against the Volunteer Force but it has become way too easy for some swinging dick in the WH to send us into War. With a Draft, the powers-that-be would have to go to the country and sell it. Another advantage, with my version of the Draft there would be NO EXEMPTIONS. No hiding in the Seminary or BSchool or Law School. All in. You say you are a CO? Fine. You become a Medic. Two more things: a 10% war tax during hostilities on all financial transactions and a DECLARATION OF WAR. This should limit our involvement to existential conflicts.

  • Bosnian Serb

    This was written by someone who does not follow closely military events. Lnr and Dnr were not on verge of collapse but their soldiers had to regroup and organize because there was not strong military organization until Strelkov and his boys from Slavyansk arrived. In fact Dnr politicians signed a deal to turn over city to government troops. Now you have brilliant luthenant arriving with 5000 hardcore fighters to a city of several million. Number of regular troops had joined them there plus there were 250 tanks to be serviced aready stationed in Doneck. Now the military ” experts” decide to cut off Strelkov and his men from the Russian border, so they send the best of the best soldiers they have deep into rebel territory. Superior in numbers and equipment they easly penetrate but forget to protect their rear. Now Strelkov orders his most battle ready troops to encircle them and cut off supply lines. Many Ukrainian soldiers in order to stay alive had to turn over tanks and Grads to the rebels and to surrender. With the newly captured hardware Strelkov orders full artillery attack and in process destroys several divisions of the most battle ready troops of the enemy. After this disaster we have conrta offensive where today there are encircled about 5000 Ukrainians. There is no battalions left to stop rebels. Yes, there are thousans constrips and hardcore nazis but they are poorly trained and can’t stand attacks by Motorola’s unitis. This is the truth Ukrainian government is trying to hide and instead blame regular Russian troops. Would you think that they would send only 10 paratroopers or 100 tanks without air support?

            Yes. Truth is the first victim of war, so we all have to do our homework. Some truths are much harder to discover than others. One Truth that is very little known is that the “Golfer in Chief” is actually “Jewish”. Again, one really must do his homework to discover this. And BTW, he is “Jewish” by conversion – Not by Blood.

          • peace angel

            I see it as it is NOT likely that the US would sponsor a coup in Ukraine NOR would Russia sponsor a coup with Mexico against the US>

      • peace angel

        THERE are many former Russians living in Ukraine and until the US invaded Ukraine along with Israel and the UK the Russians were left alone.

        WHEN PUTIN went into Crimea to KEEP them from a Us invasion the Ukrainians with our money and our military on the ground backing they began to persecute the local Russians. THIS IS fact.

        NO one trusts Putin but it is the US that is wreaking havoc all over the Middle EAST a plan made after 9/11.

        parts of Ukraine were parts of Russia that the USSR later transferred to Ukraine

  • DJohn1

    The weakness of the Russian Armed Forces is logistics not economics. Any time you have a huge investment in fancy military equipment(US also?) then it can be destroyed easier than it can be replaced.
    The way that the weaker Ukraine armed forces can win is not to fight a war of real estate. Instead hit and run. That means they have to have missiles fired from motorcycles and then leave immediately before there can be any return fire. This has been done elsewhere in the last decade or two by the Arabs against the Russians in which the Russians lost a combat helicopter a day or more. It logistically bankrupted the Russian Armed Forces in a no-win situation.
    The Russians have bought into superior weapons and vehicle equipment as a way to win. That is in line with their “chess strategy” mentality. The only way around that is Air Warfare against the hit and run people. But if the people disappear immediately, there is nothing to hit.
    The Chinese depend on the ancient “Go” game mentality in which you surround your opponent with so many people that there is no way to win against it. That is obsolete also. Modern warfare is quite capable of taking human waves out with superior explosive forces.
    The question is do we want to even be involved.
    A wise general once said, pick your battles. He was right. We have to pick the battles we can win and this is not one of those battles we can win without a lot of equipment and people lost. And for what? What do we get out of it?
    Those are the questions we have to ask before we commit to enormous financial losses abroad. That is why Vietnam was such a loser for us.
    We also have to ask, who wins financially if we go to war?
    I see how some very big companies might win production wise if we are spending huge sums of money we no longer have in wars where we do not have a good vested interest.

    • Gay Veteran

    Now What is in our Interests? Fair Question! The same thing is in our interest with regard to Russia for the last several hundred years is PEACE, FRIENDSHIP, AND ALLIANCE WITH RUSSIA.

    Anyone who wants us to oppose Russia hates America, and that has included the worst of the worst in world history. Hitler & Germany, for example, and Napoleon & France for another example, and Poland & the Baltic States for another example, & China and the Muslim World for yet another.

    Russia has been our ally against all of these aggressor haters of America. It is also in Russia’s interest to be always allied with us.

          FOR more than a decade Russian troops have been here building our concentration camps and training with our special ops guys learning to put us into them.

          And it has been 50 years since the USSR WAS infiltrating and working with Mexico to pull a coup in the US—because they NOW have nuclear weapons—

          I didn’t think we were saying the same thing based on your comment and if we were then I am sorry I misunderstood.

            no, I said for the U.S. to sponsor a coup in Ukraine is like Russia sponsoring a coup in Mexico, the point being that the U.S. would go crazy at such a brazen act in its own back yard

  • Gay Veteran

    “…There are billions of dollars of highly sophisticated western spy satellite technology focused on that region…..”

    interesting that the U.S. provides NO proof regarding the Malaysian airliner

  • Colin

    Ukraine has great value for the Russian government. This large landmass has good soil for crops and, in the waters surrounding the Crimea, major fuel reservoirs.

    I think it’s hyperbole to say that this will lead to World War III. I do believe that this war might occur, in the future, and it will be over our planet’s finite resources.

  • Westcoastliberal

    K is right. The U.S. helped overthrow the elected government and is responsible for the conflict. And where is the “proof” of Russia invading Ukraine? With all the lies from the West so far, I would demand proof before making the statement in your headline. And for the record we overthrew the Libyan government and supported the terrorists who have suddenly morphed into ISIS or ISIL or whatever terror-tag we’re using this week. Remember how Assad didn’t gas his own people (but we were going to invade), those same “rebels” who we backed in Syria are now invading Iraq. Hope this clears up the picture for you editors here at economiccollapse.

  • Little Aussie

    Yes agree.
    Based on my take of the fact. The USA NATO and the western alliance is pushing very hard to destroy Russia.
    I just hope Putin can pull together to create an earth alliance to keep the western alliance under control.
    Russia, China India, Iran, nth Korea, South America
    Chuck in the brics for funding and all that’s left is to create a military.

    Then we got some proper teams.

  • JJ

    Why would the Ukrainian people wish to join with a bankrupt and morally decadent West. In one generation it will be majority Muslim anyway, in Europe. Do they wish to be flooded with Somalis, and North Africans, and Central Asians. Then have the government put these people before their own, as they have done in Sweden, and England , and France.

    • Rob W

      CNN just reported on 1400 rapes in one small English town… what I found interesting was this: “The perpetrators often worked together and were mostly of Pakistani heritage; the victims were mostly white girls, the report says… Social counselors often took a hands-off approach to the cases for fear of being branded as racists or stoking a right-wing backlash in the city.”

      I dunno; maybe it’s long past time for a backlash?

    • Arius1071

      The Ukrainians are blinded by their hate. You are right that it makes no sense, but few people are rational.

  • Herbert
  • Richard T.

    It is very clear who started the whole thing. The US instigated the overthrew of a legal, elected government of Ukraine and started the crisis. It is clear that the US/NATO is trying to push the boundary (literally) closer to Russia. And I think, in their arrogance, they miscalculated the will of the Russians to resist and their ability to strike back.
    Starting from the Bosnian War, Afghanistan War, Georgian War, now the Ukrainian War, the US/NATO has tried to pick away piece after piece from the weakened Russia. And the US has been successful, until now. So now, the US has to decide whether to go through with it or to step down before bigger humiliations would occur.

  • BS STORY

    this story is BS, and when i think that the western media which is jewish owned, spread this lies. THIS STORY IS BS, BS, BS

  • Andrew

    but Blackwater is voluntary well-paid service, Krasnaya Armiya quite the contrary

    • Gay Veteran

      Blackwater are murderous thugs

    You underestimate Satan by spreading such a nonsense

    Kerry is a crook and a traitor and always has been. It appalls me that he’s been put in position as Secretary of State… but then again look at who was his predecessor and who put both of them in!

    • peace angel

      It is his WIFE who puts him there. Heinz is German Cabal member.

  • ExposeRussia

    Even RT’s own anchors detest their own propaganda that they spew or are forced to reiterate and you quote that garbage. No wonder you are a Putinbot.

    • Gay Veteran

      unlike our American pressitutes who lap up government lies

      • ExposeRussia

        Yea and like Russia is any better. You idiots really need to get your head checked if you think Putin is the messiah or against the NWO.

        Oh and here is a thought try living or going to Russia especially outside of the cities and tell me that Putin has made Russia the envy of the world.

        • Gay Veteran

          never said they were better.
          but at least Russia isn’t going around the globe waging imperial wars (Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc.)

        • James D.

          RT certainly is much better, you can’t even compare RT to the lying US media. It’s pretty obviuos that Putin is a an of peace, his actions are pretty clear, compare that to the warmongers like Obama and EU leaders. By their fruit you shall know them.

          • TheTruth

            Putin’s words do not speak for his actions. Whatever he says he does the opposite.

            Sara Firth , Liz Wahl are some examples of RT losing their anchors and on live air because of the propaganda RT represents.

          • Richard

            You have Putin mixed up with Obama.

          • Gay Veteran

            propaganda is what you getting from the western pressitutes.
            say, what happened to that plane? where’s the EVIDENCE?

          oh look, a McCain-bot, crazy warmonger

  • Woodland Echo

    LGBT’s are the only ones who molest children. Study History a bit, they want children in their grip. These vile disease spreading creatures have no limits on their depravity.

    • peace angel

      YOU need to study history. THE HUGE majority of RAPISTS and PEDOPHILES worldwide are STRAIGHT men.

      AS a forty year rape crisis counselor it is MY job to know this. Go to RAINN and you study the FACTS about rape and pedophilia. YOU have gotten it ALL wrong.

      Man, some people will just throw out the BS and claim it is TRUTH without a care in the world IF it is TRUE OR NOT.

      Your opinion is NOT true.

      IN fact until the Catholic Priests STOPPED raping the NUNS as the NUNS exposed them and their baby killings—-they did start raping and molesting children. THIS is an epidemic in the Catholic church that has been allowed for the past 80 years and covered up and it has happened worldwide.

      ONLY in the past 30 years have a bunch of genetically gay men started moving into their churches BECAUSE the KNOW they can molest little boys and get away with it, BUT today 90% of the rapists and pedophiles in the Catholic Church are WHITE STRAIGHT men. PERIOD

    • Gay Veteran

      sounds like projection.
      and those kind of LIES were the exact ones the Naz-is spread about the Jews

    • Gay Veteran

      sounds like projection, you pervert

      • Woodland Echo

        Projection eh, I speak Fact and Truth, you call yourself Gay. You are full of perversion and filth. Your kind is visited on this Country for it denying God’s Creation.

        I only like Women which is the normal thing for a Man to do, you have things wrong with your mind and then you think everyone else has problems with their minds. This is a common problem for Thieves, Liars, Cheats and Queers, they think because they say or do the things they do, that everyone else is like them.

        • Gay Veteran

          LOL, like ANY woman would want a sick lying troll like you

            All time prophecies have ended, the burden of Damascus and Horrible War is soon to come. Our Cities are going to be destroyed so most of his kind are soon to end. Twenty years ago I ruined myself financially to get out of the City, best decision I ever made in my life. I did not decide to believe in Christ, I have believed in him since before I was aware. Our God is self evident no matter where you look.

            These Queers are all Atheists, some play act that they believe. The Bible repeats many things to get it through our thick heads, but concerning Money Sin and Sins of the Flesh, God made it a point to mention these two things over and over. All Atheists are Queer, no one can convince me otherwise. I would not let a Child or Animal alone with one of these.

            Call it a character flaw but I enjoy putting these type in their place, but it is no challenge, I liken it to playing Chess with a four year old.

        • Gay Veteran

          you’re a self righteous Pharisee, and bigots like you rarely hate just one group

            hey pathetic bigot, do everyone a favor and blow out what little brains you have.

          • Woodland Echo

            Being disgusted by Vile Filthy behaviour just as our Lord is makes no one a “Pathetic Bigot” You saying I have little brains is pathetic as I know young Children who possess magnitudes of intelligence beyond yours. To be Gay and a Veteran does not say very much for your character also.

            Jesus weeps at hate filled bigots like you.

            Jesus is real close to saying; Let He who is Filthy stay Filthy, you just might want to change your ways.

          • Gay Veteran

    Didn’t take long for you to respond. I guess they must be running you on overtime in Russia.

    Please remind me which tactical nukes are you talking about because the Iskander was never deployed to Kalingrad only up until recently so there goes your own BS story. Also they by default are configured for conventional loads not tactical nuclear by default.

    Everything is a conspiracy with you idiot Putinbots and repeating the same script and lines won’t change anything.

      the Warsaw Pact dissolved, yet NATO (after promising the Russians they wouldn’t) has expanded to the borders of Russia.

  • CynicalGuy42

    What do the Ukrainians want?

    We talk so much about the Western perspective and the Russian perspective. What about the Ukrainian perspective?

    • James D.

      Most Ukrainians want to be with Russia, and certainly all residents of E. Ukraine who are really ethnic Russians.

      • TheTruth

        Based on what information you say that most Ukranians want to be with Russia.

        Sounds like Russian propaganda again. Just look at the ethnic makeup and Russian population within other parts of Ukraine and you will see MOST do not want to be part of Russia.

        • Gay Veteran

          the eastern areas certainly do, and that is where the Kiev coup government is murdering civilians

    I hope America does not have to send its soldiers to fight Russian Soldiers. Fighting a well armed military force like Russia would be a terrible culture shock for America more used to fighting Farmers, Goat herders and Lebanese taxi drivers.

  • James D.

    This whole article is full of anti-Russian propaganda. if I really
    wanted WW3, i’d write stuff like this. Even if everything said in this
    article was true, Russia would have the full moral right to invade. The
    pure evil that runs Ukraine now needs to be eliminated and freedom restored..Russia is the only country that can do it. This has nothing to do with America or EU. The world is sick and tired of American ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’.

  • tacoma

    Russia does not have a single troop, less invaded, Ukraine. This is backed up by credible intelligence. Not the kind anti-Russian western press routinely doctored and released. And certainly not the hotair and lies the new Ukraine president proclaimed. This Poroschenko guy started the civil war on the same day he assumed office – by ordering massive air strikes. Now a month later he is losing the war he started. This is why this loser is yelling ‘Russia is invading Europe!’ to drag NATO to his rescue.

    You know, Ukraine has screwed itself big time since gaining independence from the USSR 20 years ago. Endless in-fighting, ethic violence, economic disaster, industrial decline, massive corruption, you name it. This is why it is in today’s state of being taken over. No, Russia does not want to take it over – why mess with a bankrupt state? It is the EU who wants to take it over. It is the perfect state for capitalist exploitation. This is why EU leaders are huffing and puffing proclaiming impending WW3. Because they screwed up on their takeover strategy which gave Putin the perfect excuse to grab Crimea. And how they are seeing their puppet Poroschenko losing the civil war.

        Most Americans are still caught in the two party paradigm. They really don’t see it took both parties to bring us down. People keep blaming one party or the other. Divide and conquer.

        • peace angel

          Yes, for two hundred years since the take down was planned America has been and still is an Ostrich Nation.

  • FortuneSeek3rz

    I don’t really think this will lead to WWIII. Europe and America are both broke and neither want to get involved with Russia who has a reasonably advanced arsenal of surface to air missiles and a decent Navy w/nuclear subs. Too much risk, too little reward.

  • bobcat

    The Russians have not invaded the Ukraine. The rebels are now referring to themselves as the Donestk Republic. If rUssia invaded, it would be with a lot more than 1000 troops.
