While the latest official development surrounding the Ukraine crisis is that in under two hours, or at 3pm, the UN Security council will meet to discuss the situation in Crimea,, citing Christopher Miller, the editor of Kyiv Post, reported the following:

Below is the google translated story from Censor:

In Crimea, Black Sea Fleet commander of Russian Federation Alexander Vitko announced the beginning of the war with Ukraine. Such information TSN confirmed MP from the "homeland", the former chairman of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Cemil


According to him, on Thursday, February 27 in Sevastopol Vice Admiral Vitko gathered all the generals and said, "We start war with Ukraine. "


About the Jemilev meeting only became known today, February 28.


In addition, according to the deputy, the morning without permission border of Ukraine, trying to bypass finders crossed four helicopters from Anapa. Moreover, he noted that Ukraine is now Russia does not oppose, and Ukrainians are on the verge of very dramatic events.


"The only way out here, I think that we have the strength to impose emergency rule, bring our troops and take control of all state institutions," - said Cemil.

He asked about acting Ukrainian President empowered Commander of the Armed Forces, Alexander Turchinov.


"Now I'm with Turchynov said that what we have military units, the forces necessary to throw everything in the Crimea. Elsewhere us no threat yet, enter PE and throw under control. But again, there is concern that we provoke, that we may not have enough forces, "- stated the MP.


He believes Russia will not go to full-scale war, but "the country must defend their dignity, basic rights of its citizens."


"I constantly call and say: if Ukraine can not do something, let us at least a weapon," - said the ex- Head of Mejlis.


Moreover, he noted that the Crimean Tatars no sense to stand with machine guns and pistols against "armed to the teeth with the Russian army" which means "let the people to death."

Is this merely a provocation from the Tatar source, or a glimpse into the endgame? We will find out soon. In the meantime, here are some of the other more recent developments from the Ukraine:

Gotta laugh at the "can he do that?" part.

Well, of course not! Everyone knows that hostilities "just break out" for some unknown reason.

So that's why the stock market is up today? Maybe we need to blow up the NYSE in New York to get it really surging.

Looks as though Ras-Putin has called it right. He will do what he likes because he knows they are all too pussy to face up.

Even these Navy Seals at the border can't find a good reason to go into the Ukraine!

So now we rely on Google (NSA) translate and tweets to determine when a war breaks out?

According to a link from that article Mustafa Cemil, the man quoted, is a lifetime hardcore anti-Russian activist, who has spent 15 years in prison for his views. So he certainly may have an agenda, perhaps trying to create a virtual "False Flag" with rumors to rally people to a preemptive confrontation with the Russians and pro-Russian Ukrainians.

Obama: likes to talk, likes to make ultimatums, likes making empty threats... Does not act.

Putin: doesn't talk, doesn't make threats...
Just acts.

Putin totally disregards empty threats made by the West.
Sends warships.
Mobilizes 150,000 soldiers.
Puts airforce on combat patrol.
Seizes Crimea in broad daylight.
Then publicly denies it on the news wires.

Putin: Your move Obama... Your fucking move. Where's your red line at now? What are you going to do? Your threats are a joke, you have no power here. You talk too much. We do not fear the US any more, this is not 2002. We all know you can't afford another war let alone get it through congress.

This was a very good post on a website I thought I would share it:

 I'm from Sevastopol, was born there and lived there for the most part of my life. I couldn't speak or even understand Ukrainian till I was about 17 years old, we never learned it in school, the TV was both in Russian and Ukrainian and I, as well as the others, watched russian-speaking channels. Western and Eastern Ukraines were apart for about 700 years and fought multiple wars with each other, First and Second World Wars including. I understand you, westerners, support new-born Ukrainian democracy but what you don't understand is that this new Ukraine is actually exclusively Western Ukraine. We speak Russian in the South-East, they speak Ukrainian. They are of absolutely different culture. What's more, they hate Russia which is our Motherland. We fought for it in the Second World War and our cities were burned to the ground, millions died. They fought for the Nazis, for what they thought was civilization and Europe. And now they are the same. What's more, they are fanatics, they want their Ukraine so much that they'll willingly sign the association with EU that will bring extreme poverty abd degradation as it already did with Bosnia and Herzegovina, Baltic states, Romania, Bulgaria and to a lesser extent Poland, Hungary, etc. Well, we are tired of being poor and humiliated. We are Russians and we want home.
I'm also half-jewish. My jewish grandfather fought in Sevastopol. He was an officer in the Black Sea fleet. He knew he wouldn't survive if captured. And he wanted to spend his last bullet on the nazi. So, he always carried a capsule od cyanide with him to take his own life when the last bullet has been used. He survived but the majority of his family was murdered by nazis. When they came here, the firsy thing they did was they made all the jews gather at the stadium and then murdered them all, women and children included. Every single one.
When you think of Ukraine, think of the wetern ukrainians willingly and enthusiastically helping the nazis in their atrocities. Tatars did the same. They hunted partisans and jews and killed them or gave away to the nazis.
They still hate Russia and russians thinking of them as barbarians and long for "civilized" EU. Well, farewell. They'll find only more poverty and serfdom.
I've written this lengthy post because I've been to the USA and respect ordinary americans for their love of freedom, their morals and industry. But the West doesn't always understand what's going on here.

That is sound about right.

Was that your translation of the article out of The Censor? Got to love Google translate.

"We are start war with Ukraine"

That is sound about right".

Today in Ukraine there is no legitimate authority and any legitimate president or ministers of Internal Affairs. Today in Ukraine there are only rebels, buyout force seized power in Kiev.

And also in Ukraine, there are regions that have remained faithful to the Constitution, democracy and legitimate democratically elected Ukrainian President.

I repeat: The authorities in Kiev are now thugs and criminals. It's a fact and it does not depend on opinions EuNATO of USA . All these criminals, have committed particularly serious crime. They have committed armed coup and eventually they all will be arrested and prosecuted.

Including an accomplice of criminals that today nazyvetsya himself "Ukrainian President ." He is not the Ukrainian President. He is impostor. It will be sent to jail , along with all the other members of his criminal gang.

Vlad has gone too far.  I want to see his face when NATO blasts him with at least three lines in Tweeter.  That is at LEAST THREE LINES, I tell you.  And just wait until Obama gets his teleprompter plugged in.  He is fully prepared to say he is disappointed and ANGRY.

He will also try to pitch Obamacare to the Russians, but I doubt anyone will be intrested.

Vlad is quake and cower for anticipation of dispatch of sternly word letter. ... Nyet! Vlad is remove shirt and flex pectoral muscle in teleprompter for USSA amateur in chief.

Independent's picture

Yeah we only know too well how the Crimean Tatars treated the Slavic kids, read about fate of the captives about half way down

to quote from there "The Tatars slit the throats of all men over 60 years old who were thought to be incapable of work, forty-year-olds were saved for the galleys, young boys for their pleasure and girls and women to continue their kind and then later to be sold."

So why should I feel bad for the Tatar Tots when they did this...

 "the old and infirm, who were not worth much money, were given to the Tatar youths like rabbits to hunting dogs for their first military practice and were either stoned to death, or thrown into the sea or killed in some other way."
