Ukraine Says It Has Repelled A Russian Army "Invasion"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With a day left until the critical, if widely expected, results from the Crimean referendum are revealed, it is worth recalling the main footnote in last night's State Department travel alert for Russia: "all U.S. citizens located in or considering travel to the border region, specifically the regions bordering Ukraine in Bryansk, Kursk, Belgorod, Voronezh, and Rostov Oblasts and Krasnodar Krai, should be aware of the potential for escalation of tensions, military clashes (either accidental or intentional)." See, for the purpose of a military provocation, "accidental" will do. It is therefore not surprising to see that moments ago all major news wires blasted the following headline, quoting the Ukraine ministry of defense:

  • UKRAINIAN MILITARY REPELS ATTEMPT BY RUSSIAN FORCES TO ENTER REGION ADJACENT TO CRIMEA-UKRAINE'S DEFENCE MINISTRY

The incursion allegedly took place in the Ukraine region of Kherson, neighboring the Crimea.

Below is a video allegedly showing the Russian military helicopters involved in the incursion:

Here is the full google translated statement from the Ministry website:

Another provocation on the part of members of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation has failed.

 

Today, 15 March 2014, forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine halted the penetration of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation on the territory of Kherson Oblast from the "Arabatka." Response was made immediately.

AFP summarizes the incident as as follows:

Ukraine accused Russia on Saturday of invading a region bordering Crimea and vowed to use "all necessary measures" to ward off an attack that came on the eve of the peninsula's breakaway vote.

 

The dramatic escalation of the most serious East-West crisis since the Cold War set a tense stage for the referendum on Crimea's secession from Ukraine in favour of Kremlin rule -- a vote denounced by both the international community and Kiev.

 

The predominantly Russian-speaking Black Sea region of two million people was overrun by Kremlin-backed troops days after the February 22 fall in Kiev of a Moscow-backed regime and the rise of nationalist leaders who favour closer ties with the West.

 

President Vladimir Putin defended Moscow's decision to flex its military muscle by arguing that ethnic Russians in Ukraine needed "protection" from violent ultranationalists who had been given free reign by the new Kiev administration.

 

But Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had told Secretary of State John Kerry in London on Friday that Moscow "has no, and cannot have, any plans to invade the southeast region of Ukraine."

 

The invasion reported by the Ukrainian foreign ministry was small in scale and concerned a region that lies just off the northeast coast of Crimea called the Arabat Spit.

 

The Ukrainian ministry said 80 Russian military personnel had seized a village on the spit called Strilkove with the support of four military helicopters and three armoured personnel carriers.

 

The Ukrainian "foreign ministry declares the military invasion by Russia and demands the Russian side immediately withdraw its military forces from the territory of Ukraine," it said in a statement, "Ukraine reserves the right to use all necessary measures to stop the military invasion by Russia."

 

There was no immediate response to Ukraine's announcement from Moscow but Washington's UN representative Samantha Power called any new Russian troop movement in south Ukraine an "outrageous escalation".

So the official line is that the Ukraine repelled a Russian "military force" in a region inside east Ukraine and out of Crimea the day after Russia's foreign minister Lavrov said Russia has no plans to Invade Ukraine? Call us cynical, but something tells us if Russians wanted to "penetrate" east Ukraine, the would have done so without "being repelled."

Additionally, here is Reuters' take:

Ukraine's military scrambled aircraft and paratroops on Saturday to repel an attempt by Russian forces to enter a long spit of land belonging to a region adjacent to Crimea, Ukraine's defence ministry said.

 

"Units of Ukraine's armed forces today...repelled an attempt by servicemen of the armed forces of the Russian Federation to enter the territory of Kherson region on Arbatskaya Strelka," a ministry statement said. "This was repelled immediately."

 

It said the Ukrainian military used aircraft, ground forces and its aeromobile battalion in the operation. The territory in question is a long spit of land running parallel to the east of Ukraine's Crimea peninsula, now controlled by Russian forces.

But just so Russia isn't accused of being inert, moments ago it too re-escalate the war of words and provocations, either accidental or intentional, and stated that:

  • RUSSIA'S FOREIGN MINISTRY SAYS REQUESTS FOR DEFENCE OF PEACEFUL CITIZENS IN UKRAINE WILL BE CONSIDERED

Specifically, the Russian Foreign Ministry says in website statement that it will examine Ukrainians’ requests. Armed radicals are heading to eastern Ukrainian cities of Donetsk, Lugansk. Radicals provoked 2 deaths at pro-Russian rally in Kharkiv. The full statement is below:

On March 14 in Kharkov Ukraininan elements including the "Right Sector" arranged provocation against peaceful demonstrators who came to express their attitude to the so-called new government. As a result, the militants opened fire, killing two people, some were injured.

 

Of disturbing information that from Kharkov Donetsk and Lugansk left column with armed mercenaries "right sector" , whose leaders have announced the opening of the "Eastern Front" , and on one of the garment factories in Russia urgently sew uniforms.

 

At the risk of making the Verkhovna Rada of legitimizing the "right sector " and other radicals by converting them into system power structures like the National Guard

paid attention Secretary of State John Kerry Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during their meeting in London on 14 March . of While Lavrov urged John Kerry to use Washington's influence on Kiev to curb rampant ultra- nationalists.

 

Russia To receive many calls asking to protect civilians. These applications will be considered.

Meanwhile in Crimea, the Russian flag is already flying above the Crimean Supreme Council:

And finally, just in case things weren't exciting enough, the US appears to finally be flexing its muscles too.

  • U.S. WARSHIP TRUXTUN TO CARRY OUT FURTHER EXERCISES WITH ALLIES IN BLACK SEA-COMMANDER

From Reuters:

The USS Truxtun, a U.S. guided-missile destroyer, will carry out more exercises with allied ships in the Black Sea, its commander said on Saturday, in a further sign of the international response to Russia's actions in Ukraine. Commander Andrew Biehn was briefing reporters aboard the 300-crew destroyer as it lay docked in a Bulgarian port.

 

The USS Truxtun last week took part in drills with Romanian and Bulgarian ships a few hundred miles from Russian forces that entered Ukraine's Russian-majority of Crimea after mass protests toppled the country's pro-Moscow president.

If all this has happened while it is still light in Ukraine and before the Crimean referendum, we can't wait until darkness falls on Sunday night.

These are classic tactical moves by the Russians. Launch a weak offensive at a non-key location and make a quick retreat. Build overconfidence within the Ukraine army. The bulk of the forces will invade elsewhere as a surprise. Easily take the country. Game over in the next week for Eastern Ukraine.

Vamp, you aren't thinking clearly. No offense, but turn off your TV, get your shit together and ask yourself: WHY would Russia do anything at this juncture?  THEY DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING.  Only the opposition would benefit from the PERCEPTION OF an incursion. Case in point, as discussed on ZH previously: 

Hacked Email from U.S. Army Attache in Ukraine - For False Flags to occur so U.S. can take military action against Russia (12-Mar)

On a different note: Since 1-Mar-2014, the price of Gold has gone from $1349.90 to $1381.80:  up $30.00 (a drop in the bucket in percentage terms).  The price of Silver has gone from $21.47 to $21.46:  down ONE CENT.  If allegations are true, it appears that JPM and associates have been very successful in suppressing the price in the face of current affairs and unprecedented global demand. 

If I was Mr. Yatsenyuk, trying to do right by the Ukrainian electorate (HA!), I would be concerned for the security of the bullion belonging to the Ukrainian people.  Perhaps it ought to be repatriated to the Ukraine.

Even if Russia wanted Ukraine (which they don't) Russia does not need to fight at all to get it. If you haven't noticed, the new "government" has no money. EU only gave them promises and US is in no rush to give them money since half of the country is going to rebel against Nazis in Kiev shortly. So investing in that mess is stupid. Meanwhile, the only thing that can keep the Ukrainian government afloat is war backed by US money. This is why they are trying hard to start something.

As for invasion. Russians are on the territory of Crimea at Arabat Spit.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Kosa+Arabatskaya+Strelka/@45.6957985,3...

March 15, 18:14 GMT: The Crimean self-defense forces have prevented an attempt to damage a gas pipeline at the Arabat Spit, said the Crimean Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov as cited by Itar-tass.

"Those trying to damage the equipment - according to preliminary data, up to 40 people – introduced themselves as employees of the Border Service of Ukraine and quickly left the station," said Aksyonov.

In connection with the incident, Aksyonov has asked the Russian Black Sea fleet to keep watch over the gas distribution station in the area.

I think, that the whole world has gone mad.
About what kind of "invasion" of Russia can be discussed, if Russia acts on the basis of a request for military assistance, on behalf of the legitimate and democratically elected Ukraine President?
Yes, the whole world has gone mad. Because now, we call as "Ukrainian government" illegitimate, criminal rebels, who came to power undemocratically.
Criminal rebels, which represent a minority of the population of Ukraine. And which made the seizure of power in Kiev via massacres and who is in fact, are fascists.

People, you are normal or not?

There is at least one lawyer here, who thinks the law criteria, but not criteria blah blah blah from false propaganda ? Who of lawyers, can give the official conclusion, that criminal rebels which seized power in Kiev, came to power legally and democratically?
Or Washington's opinion, already finally and decisively replaced the any rule of law and universal norms of morality and ethics in our minds?

By "repelled" they better hope they mean, fired some warning shoots at a scout unit, who pulled back and reported their positions!  Because if they mean killed any Russian soldiers, there's going to be a whole lot of dead Ukrainian 18 year olds in a minute!  

If you read the blogs coming out of the region and not pay attention to the US dominated BS, even the Euromaiden crew in Kiev, is starting to question what happened and doesn't want the ultra-nationalist crowd running shit!

Putin justs has to wait for the votes to keep coming in and the defections to keep rolling out of E Ukraine, and the whole Country will be back under Russian influence by Summer, without a shot fired! 

The real question, as it always is, is what do the US/EU interests do in the face of another humiliating defeat? I fear some 18 yera old Ukrainian boys will still have to die!

Quite right. This situation is exactly why our founding fathers wanted us to stay out of other countries problems. The borders in this part of the world have shifted so many times that ethnic groups who consider themselves Russians, Poles, Ukrainians, Germans, and many others have shifted from country to country without ever leaving their village or town. I understand it's a threat to stability in that part of the world but it's none of our business.

If you really want a good overview then ... [...] It was very much part of a concerted programme to detach Russia from its allies, under a programme called the "Eastern Partnership policy", encompassing Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine [...] The EU has just had its tentacles burned.

Expect more demonization of Russia as the belligerent aggressor leading up to the referendum so that for world opinion the results of that vote can then be represented as coerced and illegitimate.

the real fight here is about legitimacy. hence non-soldiers in non-uniforms and no badges. I have to admit it would not even work without some legitimacy by the presence of Russian-speaking populations

yet the referendum can't by all means be presented as uncoerced and fully legitimate if there no international monitoring is allowed, not even from strictly external parties

Edit:

Oops, sorry. Four days ago, the OSCE chair, who is also Switzerland's foreign minister, opined that the referendum was illegal under Ukrainian law and thus the OSCE will not be sending observers.

Nevertheless, Ukrainian Pravda reported that Russia formally invited all Russian speaking EU citizens and expats to be election observers. As of today, RT reports that nearly 70 observers from 23 countries are registered to observe the referendum.

You are wrong. OSCE observers received official invitations to come to the Crimea to the referendum. But they refused. Earlier in the Crimea did not let come OSCE military observers, who did not have a proper mandate and his visit with the Crimean authorities did not agree - not documented. 
They were trying to get to the Crimea in agreement from Kiev.
But Crimea does not recognize as legitimate criminal rebels, who seized power in Kiev, by force of arms.

Hmmm, where have I seen this sort of thing before?  Oh yeah:

In 1976, Australia Post refused to handle Hutt River mail, forcing mail to be redirected via Canada. Following repeated demands by the Australian Taxation Office(ATO) for the payment of taxes, on 2 December 1977 the province officially declared war on Australia. Leonard Casely notified authorities of the cessation of hostilities several days later.[10] The declaration was simply legal maneuvering, Casley wrote to the Governor-General; "Sovereignty is automatic to a country undefeated in a state of war...and if the state of war is not recognized by the other party, once the notice is given then these conventions apply to their relations."

"If you want to worry, worry about the poor suckers on the US destroyer.  They'll be false flagged if war is to escalated."

 

First of all, those "suckers" chose to be right in the middle of the action, that's what they are getting paid for, it's their entertainment, it's what gives them their "charge". Personally, I don't worry, AT ALL, for any American "Service" man/women who has intentionally chosen to spread their vile form of "freedom and democracy" around the globe. 

 

Second of all, at this point, worry only makes the blood pressure rise, so for someone who cares about others, it's the last thing to bring to the table for any solution to be achieved. My concern is here at home with the "suckers" who are too busy with their worthless lives, consuming Rx and nonRx drugs, texting ad nauseam, eating gmo-junk food, buying shit loads of AK ammo, SWAT cops on steroids, etc., etc., etc., as the walls close in, and they start to get hungry for their next "fix".

 

But really, I don't know who the real suckers are, those that I mentioned, or those like myself who are thinking we're somewhat prepared for the catastrophic "Phase Transition" tidal wave about to slam dunk America in one fell swoop.

They want you disarmed so a few oligarchs can control everyone like the Ukraine.   Ukraine TV is totally controlled by the same people just like the USA.   I don't watch shit TV but it seems like all the media including many conservatives and web properties are all on this crazy evil Putin meme.

Do not believe the propaganda. Troops, about 60 people, seized one gas distribution station. Right now, they are there and not go anywhere. There's also a 4 helicopters and three armored personnel carriers. Ukraine's Foreign Ministry issued a statement condemning the actions of Russian military. Russia has issued a statement that it is not the Russian military, but it military from Crimea.

Sorry to contradict you, but Americans are LOVED by the people of Ukraine and Crimea !!!!

I have lived in Ukraine since 2009 (with homes in Odessa and Simferopol) and I can assure that Americans are in absolutely NO danger here! Indeed, once people learn you are an American, they are extremely friendly and eager to talk with you and get your opinions on events

You see, the people here understand that there is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between the American people and the U.S. government, which is true in Ukraine and many other countries. Most people I talk with here cannot understand how the U.S. government can call the post-coup Kiev leaders, who gained power through armed force, the "legitimate government" of Ukraine! Even some of the Maidan Square protesters have complained about the Yatsenyuk faction and the neo-NAZIs he has named as government ministers.

One of the most remarkable things to note is if any American really wants truthful and well reported news, they have to go to RT or other foreign sources to see what is really going on in the Ukraine.

Just now finishing up watching the latest top of the hour report on RT and the difference between the hyped up western propaganda and what resonates in the heart from RT news, is a world of difference. Quite the phenomena considering, the USA was founded on the first amendment and a free press. The sad reality is it is no longer free, and it is no longer America.

The truth comes on RT news. It just feels good.

Plane Mystery Extra Deepens... NOW 7 Hours ...

Missing airliner may have flown on for 7 hours
By Chico Harlan, Ashley Halsey III and Annie Gowen, Updated: Saturday, March 15, 7:55 AM

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said Saturday that a missing passenger jet was steered off course after its communications systems were intentionally disabled and could have potentially flown for seven additional hours.

magpie One possibility... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diego_Garcia and here's a possible "where"   Four days after a missing flight, a patent is approved by the Patent Office for maximizing dies on a wafer. 4 of the 5 Patent holders are Chinese employees of Freescale Semiconductor of Austin TX. Patent is divided up on 20% increments to 5 holders. Peidong Wang, Suzhou, China, (20%) Zhijun Chen, Suzhou, China, (20%) Zhihong Cheng, Suzhou, China, (20%) Li Ying, Suzhou, China, (20%) Freescale Semiconductor (20%) If a patent holder dies, then the remaining holders equally share the dividends of the deceased if not disputed in a will. If 4 of the 5 dies, then the remaining 1 Patent holder gets 100% of the wealth of the patent. That remaining live Patent holder is Freescale Semiconductor.   Who owns Freescale Semiconductor ?? Jacob Rothschild through Blackstone who owns Freescale. Here is your motive for the missing Beijing plane. As all 4 Chinese members of the Patent were passengers on the missing plane. Patent holders can alter the proceeds legally by passing wealth to their heirs. However, they cannot do so until the Patent is approved. So when the plane went missing, the patent had not been approved. Thus, Rothschild gets 100% of Patent once Patent holders declared deceased. Rothschild, you are an evil bastard

That's more of a reason for KIA for all passengers...imho the hijackers (with or without compliant MAS pilot and Malaysian authorities) were fed BS that they would reach Pakistan or Yemen and then crashed somewhere.

Or the flight was remote controlled in the first place.

Clearly, you are incapable of Elite Level Thought.

Why blow the plane from the sky if you can capture it and sell it to the highest bidder or keep it in inventory for future false flag use?

And did the plane not contain children? Sweet, innocent children? Yes, yes it did.

Do the passengers not contain 100s of thousands of dollars of organs?

What was the cargo? Golly, I wonder if it was valuable? I wonder if it was transporting some VERY valuable artworks that were very over-insured? Another payday!

You need to upgrade your analysis; any creature that would foment a war and kill millions is in fact capable of literally anything...

The "assignee" of a patent is considered its owner. The listed applicants and/or inventors have no ownership rights. The assignee of this patent, is Freescale Semiconductor, and has been since the application was submitted in 2012. There would be no financial benefit in eliminating the inventors.

I agree Magpie. I have some experience with the transition from analog controls to digital computer controls. Not in aviation, but in military and then civilian electronics controls of weapons systems and heavy industrial processing. The idea of a totally computer fly by wire aircraft open up amazing possibilites for third party control. This plane mystery, how can not all the world's spy satellites not have information. Fuck there are hundreds of them up there, their sensors track many different input types. Somebody fucking knows, there is no way the world's militaries, or one of them, probably USA, doesn't know form their electronic and spy sytems.

This is well within even the initial full operational range of the JORN OTHR radar network, which is perhaps the highest resolution long range OTHR in existence today. Thus the ADF should have a pretty solid idea on where that aircraft went, if they had the OTHR pulsing at the time, and if they're prepared to say anything about what they tracked. They generally won't say a damned thing along those lines - ever. But it is known it can see as far as North Korean missile tests, and has tracked Chinese ASAT weapon testing many years ago. It's been radically upgraded since then so it can definitely see and track an airliner at that range. If Malaysia were to quietly ask Canberra if they know where it really went, they just might find out.

Comment(not mine) on this topic: "My theory is that the Chinese Martyr's Brigade, who did claim responsibility for the missing plane, was able to either fly the plane or force the pilots to fly the plane to Xinjiang Province, the semi-autonomous region in Northwest China and historical homeland to the Uyghur people. Xinjiang Province is littered with abandoned oil fields and decommissioned Chinese Military bases that were all serviced by air due to their remote locations in the Gobi Desert, and could still have serviceable landing strips. A flight path north staying to the east of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, then over east Burma, north east Bangladesh, crossing the Himalayas in Nepal and then a rapid decent for a low flight over the Gobi to an abandoned airfield would avoid the more sophisticated air traffic control systems and air forces of India and China."

Yes, however China has some OTHR capability as well though it's probably looking E, N and SW, rather than due south. Plus OTHR also does not work at short range (contacts need to be above ~750 km range some days). But Russia should also have picked it up with their OTHR coverage (not sure if India even has OTHR).

As long as we're OT, Yours Truly already posted the update: (Sat, 03/15/2014 - 03:00 | 4551340)…

The relevant questions that Captain(s) Unobvious might now ask include:

(1)     Why did it take so long for Boeing to come forward with this data?  E.g., did they have to reveal it because they could not risk the legal liability and PR damage if this was going to be leaked sooner or later anyway?  IOW, the fear of the Snowden effect.

(2)     (a) Since when has this technology been Available for in-situ Beta-testing, and (b) since when has it been in Regular use?

(3)     Based on question (2), does this mean that Boeing actually has data on other plane crashes that it does not wish to share?  It does not take a genius or an overly active imagination in a post-Snowden era, to envision a scenario, where US Agencies (NSA, CIA) wanted to have this information about planes, but did not wish to have the FAA or the Public to know about it.

(4)    Given that Expert Pilot skills were required after the hijacking, did the plane not actually land somewhere, and is it not possible (or likely) that the passengers and plane are being “repurposed”?

Kirk, this technology is not new, it's been in commercial use for many years now. Many small private jet manufacturers and engine makers incorporate this sort of near real time reporting technology. For instance, Embraer offers a SATCOM-based trend-monitoring service for all aircraft systems in their business jets, that can also send the engine performance data and operating trends to companies like Pratt and Whitney, if you've entered into an engine servicing and maintenance agreement with them, at time of engine purchase. This technology is becoming a standard feature of all new aircraft as are the software 'Apps' for owners and operators to access their aircraft's gathered flight data, online, using an iPad or PC. Nothing sinister here, it's just leveraging maintainability options that a SATCOM modem and digital FADECs make possible. There will be a lot more of this to come.

Excellent, excellent post, Kirk.

I would urge one and all - esp. my fellow ZHers - to use great wariness regarding all future info coming into the public eye regarding this incident, particularly coming from sources such as this from Bezos' rag.

The initial reports from Boeing - 5 hours transmission after "disappearance", coupled with the southwesterly direction as recorded/reported by Malaysian military - would indicate the final transmissions ended just about at Diego Garcia.  

Expanding the flight range (now by possibly two more hours), along with the already underway demonization of the pilot, may offer up semi-viable scapegoats for the motherfuckers who are behind this.

God help us all if theses pricks succeed after all this universally visible, damning evidence of an AWACS hijacking.

I just returned last night from a visit home in Ukraine (Poltava) in the "Russian" part of the country.  If cabbage rolls and Deruny were all it took, we'd have universal peace.  LOL  There's a favorite phrase - "How many ways can you fix a potato?"  Despite the enthusiasm of the "nuts for Putin" I can count on one hand the number of Russians wanting "protection."  We're helpless so the feeling is "Take Crimea and just leave us alone".   

Talk about unintended consequences.  Before the "Professor" (previous Pres) broke the EU agreement the country was divided on which way to go.  Today it's 90-10 (and that's being generous).   Russia could cut off the gas but since tourism has vanished that's their only source of hard currency. It's as if they're trying to harm themselves.

Right. Because Iraq and Afghanistan were such cakewalks for us.

Apples and Oranges.  Try sending the US military to the Ukraine which is on the border with Russia.  You will see what the Russians are like when you are close to their borders.  These wars attacking far off countries are bullshit and the troops know it.  They just want to survive and get home.

The oligarchs in the USA and the Ukraine are f***king all of us over.   They are the enemy.

It's easier to moan about The Other, who lives far away then to take responsibility right at home.

The Northern Border of Afghanistan was that shared with the Soviet Union. Maybe it is not Russia in the proper sense...but the SovietStates of the Soviet Union were centrally controlled by Moscow at the time.

 

And still Moscow faltered...

 

Of course this is not to suggest that the US Military has fared any better.

The Ukrainians must wait till McCain and his mighty band of Senators arrive to lead them to vanquish the Russians in Crimea.
