    Crimea is mostly populated by Russians. It was back and forth between Russia, Crimea, Ukraine, Mongol Golden Horde, Ottoman Empire, etc. for centuries and in 1954 Kruschev made it part of Ukraine. Russians populaterd the region and became the majority (as well as in east Ukraine). Wouldn't be surprised if Vlad had his people engineer another election to grab east Ukraine and make it part of Russia. This is sort of like Hitler and Sudetenland all over again. Vlad could stop Ukraine ammo exports by cutting off access to the ports in Crimea or the Ukraines may decide that they just might need the ammo themselves. More likely will be Barack imposing sanctions (he doesn't need an okay from Congress for this) and block imports of ammo shipped from Russia or through Russian held territories. And why not?Barack loves guns and gunowners ..... right? Hmmm....

    Russian Spetsnaz arrested in Ukraine

    Posted, 2014-03-17



    The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) confirmed March 16 the arrest of a group of Russians in the Zaporizhzhia (Zaporozhye) region of Ukraine. The men were armed with firearms, explosives and unspecified 'special technical means'. This follows the March 14 arrest near Kherson, Ukraine of several Russians dressed black uniforms with no insignia, armed with AKS-74 assault rifles and in possession of numerous ID cards under various names. One of which was an ID card of Military Intelligence Directorate of the Russian armed forces; commonly known as 'Spetsnaz'. These men were being guided by an ethnic Russian Ukrainian in what appears to be reconnaissance of the 3 Ukrainian army divisions deployed in Kherson.

    The Next One: Moldova’s Transnistria Region Said To Seek Russian Accession



    zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 03/18/2014 10:35 -0400

    Many had feared (or expected), fallout from Crimea’s referendum and subsequent accession to Russia may embolden ethnic minorities in many bordering nations to seek self-determination. It appears that is taking place in Moldova where Vedomosti reports that Mikhail Burla, head of the Transnistria region’s legislature, has asked Russia’s Duma for draft laws on accession to Russia to be altered to allow the region to join. The timing of this move is surreal as headlines appeared this morning that Europe is looking to speed up its “association” with Moldova. In a 2006 referendum, over 97% of Transnistrians voted to join Russia…
