Russia To Deploy ‘Full-Scale Military Unit’ In Crimea

Russia To Deploy “Full-Scale Military Unit” In Crimea (ZeroHedge, Sep 17, 2014):

Just a day after NATO began military exercises (with troops from the US) near the city of Lviv in Western Ukraine, WSJ reports Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu is responding to the “rising foreign military presence,” near Russia. In a not-so-de-escalatory move, Shoigu explained that NATO’s comments were “light-minded” and his ministry’s key task now is to “deploy a full-scale and self-sufficient force grouping” in the Crimea region.

First this…

Russian Defense Ministry official calls light-minded NATO general’s statements about Russian military presence in Ukraine

Then, as The Wall Street Journal reports,

Russia will set up a full-scale military unit on the annexed peninsula of Crimea in response to “rising foreign military presence” next to Russia, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Tuesday, Interfax news agency reported.

One of his ministry’s key tasks now is to “deploy a full-scale and self-sufficient force grouping” in the Crimea region, Mr. Shoigu said.

The statement comes a day after the North Atlantic Treaty Organization began military exercises with troops from the U.S. and other NATO members near the city of Lviv in western Ukraine. The exercises had been slated to take place earlier but were delayed to Sept. 15-26 because of the turmoil in eastern Ukraine. The U.S. and NATO accuse Russia of deploying tens of thousands of troops along its border with Ukraine.

As far as the ceasefire.. it’s still on…

  • “More than 10” civilians die in shelling of east Ukraine town – military
  • OSCE DOESN’T REGARD EXCHANGES OF FIRE BETWEEN MILITIA AND UKRAINIAN SERVICEMEN AS END TO CEASEFIRE – RUSSIAN REPRESENTATIVE KELIN
  • LAVROV: CEASEFIRE IN UKRAINE REMAINS, THOUGH CERTAIN INCIDENTS TAKE PLACE BUT THEY SHOULD FADE AWAY

Hhmm – seems they have a different definition of truce… though Ukraine needs to keep stocking up its arms deliveries.

  1. Of course they will. Anyone would do the same. The only reason NATO got into the Ukraine is because of the US puppet government. Nobody wants them there, and if they had any sense, they would get out.
    The Ukraine is part of Russia, not the US. No amount of soldiers or bullying will change the hearts and minds of the citizens. This is a waste of time, NATO was never supposed to get into wars, but this is how desperate the US has become.
    I don’t understand why the US wants a war with Russia. They will lose. I don’t understand why my country wants war so badly they create people to fight them…….it is sick, it is destructive, and it has bankrupted the nation.
    At some point, credit is going to get cut off.

    A very important, but under-reported story is about the FED. Until recently, they were going to continue the give away plan into 2016 or 2020. Now, they will stop buying all US debt and treasuries in November…….4 years from the time Putin and China set up their own trade agreement, using their own currencies, leaving the dollar out. From that date until today, nations using the dollar have dropped from 100% to 33%, and continues to fall.
    The FED has been carrying a minimum of 86% of the interest on the national debt for years……once they stop buying, what happens to the interest on the national debt? How can the US carry it without the FED? If they could, the FED would not have been carrying it.
    Could the FED be ready to cut their losses with the US?
    They are not part of the US, they are a private bank.
    It has been 101 years since the bastards were set up in the US.
    I don’t see where we go from here.
    Does anyone else know more? If so, please post it.
    Thanks,
