But so far, things haven't worked out quite as intended. Russia declined to mobilize forces to eliminate the nazi/oligarch monstrosity in Kyiv, but quietly retook possession of her ancient naval base of Crimea in accordance with an overwhelming democratic mandate from the largely Russian population of the peninsula.
As a further provocation, the fascists of Kiev sent a band of psychopaths to Odessa to commit an atrocity against citizens restive at the undemocratic turn of events in Kyiv. But Russia failed to invoke the Empire's principle of "R2P," which is to say the right to bomb the hell out of any country where the government has engaged, or is said to have engaged, in killing its own people.
At the same time, the Kyiv junta was itself faced by a provocation from its own people, namely, a referendum in Donbass in which more than 80% voted for autonomy within a federal Ukrainian state. In response, the Kyiv fascists sent an army of 70,000 regular troops, conscripts and nazi volunteers marching beneath their Wolfsangel banner, to bomb, shell and bayonet the "subhuman," "terrorist" Russian-speaking civilians of Lugansk, Donestsk and surrounding Donbass communities.
But again, Russia failed to intervene directly or even indirectly so far as could be convincingly demonstrated by the imperialist media. Thus, the Russophobes in Kyiv, Russia's ancient capital, committed a new atrocity: they shot down a civilian airliner killing all 298 innocent civilians on board, while faking evidence to show that the crime had been committed by the Eastern dissidents with direct Russian assistance.
Even the CIA found that hard to stomach and directly refuted Imperial Warmonger in Chief, President Obama, by pointing out that there was no direct Russian involvement in the destruction of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17. The Russians went further, revealing that a Ukrainian air-force fighter jet was within air-to-air missile range of the downed airliner at the time of the crash. Moreover, Russia pointed out that the Ukrainian proof of "rebel" responsibility was fabricated and place on YouTube the day before the crash.
So, what to do? Apparently, with the aid of the Guardian, Britain's wholly Zionist/Chatham House controlled news outlet, announce a Russian military incursion into Ukraine, an announcement shortly to be followed by President Porky's triumphant claim that Ukraine had destroyed the Russian force. But now the question arises, did the Russian incursion actually occur, or was it a total fabrication?
The Russians deny any incursion by their forces, and on the face of it, the Ukrainian claim is inherently difficult to believe, quite apart from the total untrustworthyness of the source. If Russia decided to intervene militarily in Donbass, would they not deploy something more significant than a dozen trucks, easily destroyed by Ukrainian artillery, of which an abundance has been moved to the Donbass for the purpose of killing Ukrainians in their own homes. But to find out, we will have to await further developments.
Meantime, the Ukie fascist friends of the Western empire, are deploying white phosphorus against the "subhumans" of Donbass: maybe that will move the Russians to embark on a military intervention on humanitarian grounds. If they do, it will be denounced in the West as an imperialistic adventure that must be repulsed with the full force at NATO's disposal.

...First they (the Kiev Junta) asked that the convoy pass through Kharkov instead of rolling straight toward Donetsk, making for a big detour. Then they demanded that the goods be offloaded at the border and loaded onto Ukrainian trucks, but they couldn't come up with enough trucks. Then they demanded that the Russian trucks cary Ukrainian license plates and that each truck carry a Ukrainian representative. Next it will be something else.The Professors' Blog:
You may be confused at what might be behind all of these fairly ridiculous conditions and stalling tactics, so let me explain. The Ukrainians are doing their best to figure out how they can steal the goods from the convoy.

Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End To Russian Sanctions
Trade sanctions were imposed on Russia at the urging of the Empire of Lies, aka Obamastan, on the pretext that Vladimir Putin cold-bloodedly murdered the 298 souls aboard the downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17. Now that it is known that the destruction of MH-17 had nothing to do with Russia or the Russian-speaking Federalist rebels in Eastern Ukraine but was almost certainly an act of mass murder by America's fascist puppets in Kiev, the Europeans look like what they actually are, dupes of the O'Bomber—Fogher Rassmussen lie machines and their oligarch-owned media accomplices. Moreover, they look like really stupid dupes, since the counter sanctions imposed by Russia cause more pain to the EU, both economically and politically, than Europe's sanctions cause Russia. In fact, the Russian economy will likely come out stronger as a result of the reciprocal sanctions, since they will stimulate Russian agriculture, particularly the horticultural sector, while strengthening economic ties with the BRICS nations.
So much for the EU's grovelling submission to the United States of Aggression.

The leadership of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic has dismissed the Ukrainian government's statement on destroying a convoy of what appeared to be Russian armored vehicles in eastern Ukraine.RT:
"We haven't received any armored vehicles from Russia. No Russian units, including Russian armored vehicles, have crossed the border. Hence, no Russian armored vehicles could have been destroyed," DPR First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Purgin told Interfax on Friday evening.
Purgin claimed that, on the contrary, the militias destroyed about 100 Ukrainian armored vehicles.
"A lot of Ukrainian armored vehicles were destroyed today, 7 at one place, 12 at another. And the same all over the DPR territory. A total of about 100 of them," Purgin said.
