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.
