PUTIN WILL ACT TO RETAIN UKRAINE
The Ukraine is the most valuable and most beautiful of all former States of the USSR. It is the largest, the most fertile, it has the strongest military with an aerospace industry and houses Russia’s Black Sea fleet. As corrupt as it may be, Putin will not lose it to a social networking rebellion. It is far too strategically valuable.
Something will give despite Obama’s warning that it would be a “grave mistake” for Moscow to make a military move against the uprising. Ha, that’s tantamount to Putin warning Obama not to move against a Californian secession.
European leaders and the US would do well to desist from luring The Ukraine westward and allow the dust to settle.
There are many options open to Putin, it’s now a case of sit back and wait to see what action ‘Action Man’ will take.
