After pressuring President Yanukovych into not signing the EU Association Agreement, Russia then effectively offered Ukraine $15 billion as a thank you gift. However, the Euromaidan protesters refused to accept this and finally, when the bloodshed became too much to deal with, Yanukovych fled Kiev.

Knowing that a democratic government would be contrary to their interests, Vladimir Putin sent troops into Crimea. They quickly occupied airports and forced Ukrainian soldiers out of military bases. Putin's justification for these provocative and illegal actions, was that he was protecting the ethnic Russians living there. Interestingly enough, that was the same reason Adolf Hitler gave when invading Sudetenland - saying the ethnic Germans there were being persecuted. Predictably, it was a lie both times. In fact, the only ethnic Russians to have been persecuted so far are the ones who showed up at a anti-war rally in Moscow.

As of now, the Russians have issued an ultimatum to the Ukrainians, saying if they do not surrender by 0300 GMT, they will launch an all out assault against them. Knowing that the Ukrainian military will not give up as easily as first thought, Russia are now turning to the threat of full out war.

So, to sum up, Russia's invasion of Ukraine is completely unjustified, comparable to the German invasion of Sudetenland and illegal under a 1994 treaty honouring Ukraine's territorial integrity.


The West has done its best to destabalise Ukraine, as they have done to great effect in Syria and Libya. The Whitehouse and its allies have decided that they need to do more than just fund and arm extreme Islamists so as to order the world as they desire it.

Through the US agency for international development (USAID), the USA co-funded the destabalisation in Ukraine.

The West has lead the coupe by funding ultranationalists to overthrow their legitimately elected leader. The violence has become so bad that the legitimate president Yanukovych, like many compatriots has been forced to flee to Russia for the sake of his life.
Russia, with Ukraine on their border and a large population of Russians living in Ukraine, cannot allow the neo-nazi anglo-american proxy state to persist.

They have without any violence entered the Ukraine and performed rudimentary operations to try and secure stability in the country.

The Western media have ignored the fact that the legitimate president was overthrown by a violent coup after weeks of bloodshed by ultranational Nazi's. And after one day the new, illigitimate, self-elected prime minister of Ukraine Mr Yatsenuk is having his words beamed all around the world "Russia are invading us". As though he is the legitimate leader and the last few weeks of bloodshed and riots never happened. The West, having orchestrated the whole thing now use their controlled media to repeat this mantra every day until it legitimises conflict with Russia.

The Western people, me included, will end up paying for the actions of their governments like the Nazi public in 1944. History will have little compassion and look on them like it did the Nazi public: Moronic sheep-like creatures who deserved their fate after never questioning their government or media no matter how much pain it caused the rest of the world. That though, is where the comparison ends.

The invasion of the Ukraine by Russia is sending a ripple effect through out Eastern Europe. With the prospects now for possible cold war starting all over again investors brace for sanctions against Russia. And with the already falling economy of the Ukraine, investors and business are bailing out as fast as they can.

During the next few years, the Ukraine economy will be pushed to its limits. Currently, the Ukraine desperately needs 30 billion in loans to survive, and with ousted former president Viktor Yanukovich having already pulled the country out from the European Union, and the new government wanting nothing to do with Russia, the government will be in dire straits.

The US State department has issued a travel warning urging Americans not to travel to the Ukraine. Tourism is a huge part of Ukraine economy. with hotels, airlines and restaurants depending on tourism. As these businesses cut back, the ripple effect in cities like Kiev, Odessa and Yalta will have devastating consequences on the economy. Just as when the housing market died in the US, the effects were felt world wide. Not only will Ukraine's economy continue to decline, but most of Western Europe's fragile economy will also feel the effects.

One industry that seems to thrive on the situation is the foreign bride market, A Foreign Affair operates four office in the Ukraine. Kenneth Agee the marketing director says, "In the last few weeks we have seen the biggest surge ever on women signing up. Not only have we seen the biggest surge, but we have seen the highest quality of women signing up; doctors, engineers, even some of Ukraine's most beautiful models, With the possibility of war looming over the horizon, American men are looking very desirable." A Foreign Affair 's new member Irina of Kiev says, "America is stable, American men have very good family values. These are important to Ukraine women; we want a good environment to raise our families. With Russian tanks rolling down our street
