US Official Claims 6,000 Russian Troops In Complete Control Of Crimea – Crisis Map Update

US Official Claims 6,000 Russian Troops In Complete Control Of Crimea – Crisis Map Update (ZeroHedge, March 2, 2014):

While the images and local news have been suggesting that Russia is in control on the Crimean peninsula, US officials (according to Bloomberg) have confirmed this:

  • *RUSSIAN FORCES IN COMPLETE CONTROL OF CRIMEA: U.S. OFFICIAL
  • *RUSSIA HAS 6,000 TROOPS IN CRIMEA, U.S. OFFICIAL SAYS
  • *KERRY TO REAFFIRM SUPPORT FOR UKRANIAN SOVEREIGNITY, PSAKI SAYS

Obama, Merkel, and Cameron are now on a conference call to discuss this “fact” and officials have just reported that US Secretary of State John Kerry will visit Kiev tomorrow (though we suspect not Sevastopol):

  • U.S. IS FOCUSED ON ECONOMIC, POLITICAL AND DIPLOMATIC OPTIONS ON UKRAINE, NOT ON ANY POSSIBLE U.S. MILITARY INTERVENTION, U.S. OFFICIAL SAYS
  • *U.S. CONSIDERING SANCTIONS ON RUSSIAN BANKS, OFFICIAL SAYS

  1. The US needs to stay out and get lost. The Ukraine is part of Russia, and always will be. Clown Kerry is the last idiot needed. What fools lead this nation.
    Looking at the nuclear leaking from Japan, San Diego, New Mexico and now Washington State, CA is surrounded. Let Clown Kerry pay attention to this crisis, it is a real one, not cooked up by greedy corporate media.

  2. This is just another terrorist act by the un and the United States
    Poking thier nose in internal differences of Russia and it’s former republic
    So they can try. to be the policeman of the world let us no forget
    What happened to Serbia in 1999. a soveign nation bombed by the USA and it’s allies just Because a bunch of Albanian terrorist wanted to hijack the land of Kosovo And take thousands of Serbs away from Serbia to give a bunch of Albanians What they planned to do to secede from Serbia from the start. and be able to make Kosovo a part of greater Albania
