"Piu' di 20.0000 persone al canto di "Russia" hanno partecipato ad un corteo a Sevastopol , lunedi u.s chiedendo la secessione della Crimeas dalla Ukraina. Secondo Euronews, un corteo piu' grande, di protesta, si è tenuto a Kiev domenica u.s.
Il Presidente Oleksandr Turchynov, seguito all'estromesso - eletto democraticamente- Viktor Yanukovych, ha messo in guardia sul pericolo di "segni di separatismo" e che il separatismo sarebbe stato punito.
Sergei Shoigu, il Ministro della Difesa Russo, ha detto che Mosca "sta osservando con attenzione cosa sta succedendo in Crimea" e che la stessa avrebbe preso misure " per garantire la sicurezza delle strutture, infrastrutture ed arsenali della Flotta del Mar Nero.”
Nella prima giornata di oggi (26 feb ndt) , la Russa ha ufficialmente confermato che il Presidente Putin ha messo in allerta le truppe nell'Europa Occidentale : Russian military began combat readiness drills in Western and Central Europe. (Esercitazioni per essere pronti al combattimento, in Europa Centrale ed Occidentale)
A seguito della mossa russa, la NATO ha annunciato la sua lunga e stretta collaborazione con l'Ukraina. Il capo della NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen ha detto:
"Siamo printi a continuare ad assitere l'Ukraina nelle
sue riforme democratiche"
The Globe and Mail is reporting Russians have established checkpoints dozens of miles outside Sevastopol. The southern Crimean city is home to the Russia’s Black Sea Fleet.
“The Globe and Mail saw least a dozen men wearing fatigues – supported by an armored personnel carrier – standing under a Russian flag at a checkpoint erected roughly halfway along the 80-kilometer road from Sevastopol to Simferopol, putting it close to the administrative border that separates the Sevastopol municipality from the rest of Crimea and Ukraine,” writes Mark MacKinnon for the Canadian newspaper. The men, wearing balaclavas, identified themselves as “volunteers.”
On Tuesday it was reported residents of the port city had signed up as volunteers in self-defense and pro-Russian groups. Crimeans are said to fear violence from Ukrainian nationalists in the northern part of the country.
More than 20,000 people chanting “Russia” attended a rally in Sevastopol on Monday calling for Crimea to secede from Ukraine. A larger rally protesting the coup in Kyiv was held on Sunday, according to Euronews.’
Oleksandr Turchynov, the acting president of the country following the ouster of democratically elected president Viktor Yanukovych, warned of “dangerous signs of separatism” and said separatists would be punished.
Sergei Shoigu, the Russian Defense Minister, said Moscow was “carefully watching what is happening in Crimea” and would take “measures to guarantee the safety of facilities, infrastructure and arsenals of the Black Sea Fleet.”
Earlier today Russia officially confirmed President Vladimir Putin had put troops in Western Europe on alert and the Russian military began combat readiness drills in Western and Central Europe.
“We stand ready to continue assisting Ukraine in its democratic reforms,” he added.
Russia puts military on high alert as Crimea protests leave one man dead‘The Kremlin ordered major military exercises on Wednesday as concerns about unrest in Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula continued to grow and scuffles in the region left one person dead.
The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, ordered an urgent drill of his country’s armed forces in western Russia, in what appeared to be a display of sabre-rattling aimed at the new government in Kiev.
The US reacted in a strongly worded message, with the secretary of state, John Kerry, saying that any military intervention in Ukraine would be a “grave mistake”.
“For a country that has spoken out so frequently … against foreign intervention in Libya, in Syria, and elsewhere, it would be important for them to heed those warnings as they think about options in the sovereign nation of Ukraine,” Kerry said last night.’
