Tyler Durden's picture


On the heels of the Russian navy intentionally sinking a vessel blocking the Ukrainian navy from entering The Black Sea, Ukraine Pravda reports that it is "most probable that Russian troops will assault units in Ukrainian Crimea overnight continuing to the weekend." Citing a source in the uniformed services, Ukraine Pravda warns that "despite reports that Russian troops ended in learning, active phase lasts. They did not return to the barracks," and maintain "peak readiness."


Via Ukraine Pravda (via Google Translate),

On the night of Thursday to Friday a great opportunity to assault Ukrainian part of the Russian special forces.


This "Ukrainian Pravda" reported a source in the uniformed services.


"Despite reports that Russian troops ended in learning, active phase lasts. They did not return to the barracks. Could maintain peak readiness by the end of the weekend," - said the source.


"The most probable that the assault would take place that night, but the danger will persist to the end of the weekend" - source added.


"There are three scenarios. First - this air strike," - said the source.


He said that if Russian troops will withdraw from parts of the Ukrainian, that would mean this version.


"Helicopters are already relocated, and it is possible that they will do exactly helicopters," - said the UP.


"The second option - a special operations force for disarmament," - he said.


The interviewee said that in the Crimea are Russian special forces "Alpha", "Vympel" and "Zaslon."


"The third option: they can come up with ryazhenymy Cossacks, as with a living shield. Example is happening" - he added.


He also reminded that the Russian troops flooded his ship to block the path of Ukrainian courts.


According to the source, impacts may not be in all parts, but only by those who are the most combat-ready, including Sevastopol and Feodosiya.

And this follows the sinking of a ship to block the Ukrainian Navy...

An anti-submarine boat may have been the first casualty of the Russian incursion into Crimea, but it was hardly an act of violence, much less war: The Russian navy sank one of its own, junked vessels to create an obstacle, a Ukrainian official said on Wednesday.

The sinking was the latest in a series of moves by Russian naval forces in the area that were jangling the nerves of Ukrainian officers... the mouth of the bay was blocked by 10 Russian vessels including the formidable guided missile cruiser Moskva.

The sinking of their own ship was to trap the Ukrainian ships in the harbor, where they can be attacked by special forces if necessary.

This is interesting because if Crimea is really so pro-Russian, why the need to block the escape routes? Instead, this gives one the impression that this whole thing is a forcible annexation. It has been noted that several Crimean MPs that would've voted "no" were blocked from attending the secession vote. Also, I've heard that while the vote was being taken, armed Russian forces were surrounding the Parliament.


If Crimea wants to seceed, make it obvious that no coercion is going on by withdrawing Russian troops back to their bases. Then let them vote.

What the Russians did was just plain MEAN... but it makes sense if you would rather not have to sink their navy.

Look at where they sunk the ship in Google Earth ( 45.327537°, 32.987222° )- you could almost walk from shore to the wreck without getting you hat wet. And whatever naval assets were on the protected side of the coastal barrier aren't going anywhere (unless they aren't much larger than rigid hull inflatable).

Number 6 had a bad fate over in Africa...or so we are told.


But Team 6 implies that there are five other teams at least.


I pray for peace and, if they are there, bring them home.


You know that they were there at the start of this CIA mess.


PUKIN is an asshole. I will grant you that...in a heartbeat.


But that does not in anyway serve to minimize the fact that our Fag President is not better or worse.

No.  The Modus operandi is that you only invade countries that you accuse of having WMDs but is widely known to actually have none.

Don't forget this one:

Dr. Elizabeth O’Bagy, Syria expert, made quite an impression on Senator John McCain


"Dr. Elizabeth O’Bagy, Syria expert, made quite an impression on Senator John McCain. During Senate hearings, the former Presidential candidate quoted at length from her recent Wall Street Journal op-ed painting a rosy picture of a mostly secular, pro-Western anti-Assad insurgency.
“John, do you agree with Dr. O’Bagy’s assessment of the opposition?,” the Senator asked the Secretary of State John Kerry. “I agree with most of that,” he replied.
Except Dr. O’Bagy wasn’t actually a doctor. Her PhD was fabricated, a lie she told her employers at the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), an influential neoconservative-aligned think tank, to get hired. Ironically, it ended up being the lie that got her fired Wednesday. ..."

Bosphorus is Turkey.

Turkey are the only option for the TANAP pipeline which is the only rival to the South Stream.

So the West needs Turkey to be compliant. Scuttling their shipping lanes would be shooting ourselves in the foot.

This stuff was leaked to play with their minds and keep these guys up all night and on the edgel.  The Russians may just try some of that knock out gas again.  Pipe it into the ships, heck they may even use snipers to take out the sentries, or this is all to give the suckers one last chance to go to their wives walking instead of in a body bag.  Putin wants Crimea clear of any other troops and fast before they move on other parts of Ukraine like Odessa. He doesn't want his men tied down babysitting suckers who dont realize the West is selling them and their families into indentured servitude.  They had their chance to go to mother Russia.
