I've been checking constantly for updates. It's tricky because it's a very dynamic situation with a strange sort of static reporting. It kind of feels like most news agencies are waiting for it to be done so they can post-analyze it rather than risk saying the wrong thing now.

Now they won't even send their soccer team to Cyprus to play us in a friendly. Thanks for ruining the late lunch I was going to take to watch that, Putin :gomez:

I don't think the car bomb going off in Cyprus helped the situation.

It seems that the invasion is deeply unpopular in Russia, and the former soviet states are very much against it (most of which have large russian speaking populations. They can't be happy with Russia's excuse for invasion.)

Seems pointless.

so does no one around here actually care about this?

seems pretty tragic, that the protesters went through what they did to get control of kiev only for this to happen. I think the pro-russian citizens living in the Ukraine have legitimate concerns but there is no way that having the russian military on their side is fair.

where is this all heading?



John Kerry will end up throwing money at the problem.

The Ukraine regime was shooting medics in the neck, it had to go. If Putin doesn't understand that, he's an idiot. I hope that Ukraine is allowed to go through this transitional phase in 1 piece. After that, Crimea should have the right to self determination. In other words, all sides are twats.

This is how you troll:

http://news.yahoo.com/russia-demands-uk ... 27311.html

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Friday demanded Ukraine pay back $11 billion that he said Kiev had saved through discounted gas prices in return for hosting a Russian naval base in Crimea.

Ukraine owes the money because Crimea is now part of Russia and the two countries' 2010 lease agreement was now "subject to annulment," Medvedev said at a meeting of the Security Council.
