    I bet the phones are ringing off the hook at the usual suppliers. Luckily, I don't really "need" any ammo at the moment.

    Ukraine’s Military Mobilizes, Prepares For Combat: Trucks, APCs, Tanks Rolling Out

    Did somebody say de-escalation?

    Earlier today, photos were distributed showing the latest military convoy reinforcements heading into the Crimea, accompanies by a Police car demonstrating Moscow license plate numbers, most likely providing further support to the pro-Russian forces in the peninsula.

    From SG Ammo:

    Attention SGAmmo Customers: Expect a 2 to 4 business day delay in shipping orders due to high demand and order volume
    http://www.sgammo.com/catalog/rifle-ammunition/762x39

    Seems all the "cheap" ammo is gone.

    Milsurp 5.45x39 is going fast in the last couple days and milsurp 7.62x54R gone.

    http://www.sgammo.com/catalog/rifle-ammunition/545x39

    http://www.sgammo.com/catalog/rifle-ammunition/762x54r

    SMG - Milsurp 7.62x54R crates listed but at $30 higher than yesterday and milsurp 5.45x39 $40 higher per crate. Could be forcing some rationing now by raising prices.

    Fortunately most of us here are serious preppers and survivalists so we are well prepared but just watching ammo inventories and prices is our proverbial "canary in the coal mine".

    BREAKING NEWS: Novofedorivka Air Base in Crimea Seized by Russian Troops

    johngaltfla.com / by John Galt / March 9, 2014 14:25 ET

    Breaking news this afternoon from Ukraine Pravda (translated via Google Translate):

    Russian invaders stormed another airfield in the Crimea

    Sunday, March 9, 2014, 18:15

    By the airfield, which is located in the village Novofedorivka (Crimea), arrived at 4 trucks with Russian soldiers.
    This is the head of the Crimean Ministry of Defence media center Vladislav Seleznev on his page on Facebook .

    In his post, there are 2 trucks with activists.

    “In the sky above the aerodrome pair overflying helicopters MI-24, about a dozen passenger civilian cars trying to enter the territory of the airport from the surrounding villages,” – wrote Seleznev.

    He also added that the Russian military insist that their missing out on the aerodrome.

    According to the Command / h, also the territory of the Russian military stormed 4 KamAZ, military special forces and people in civilian clothes.
    Currently, the Marine commander Saki Aviation Brigade went to the negotiations.

    As you know, without Jankoi military insignia took control checkpoint military airfield and military objects of the A1387.
    Earlier also blocked the work of unidentified armed military airfield “Bel’bek.”
    This base is located to the north of Sevastopol so the seizure of this air base fits the Russian profile of controlling every Ukrainian military facility before engaging in any conflict where live fire might begin.

    Pro-Russia Troops Install Minefields, Border Markers in Crimea; Gazprom Ups Price of Natural Gas 37%, Calls in $2 Billion Gas Debt



    globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com / Mike “Mish” Shedlock / Sunday, March 09, 2014 2:10 PM

    The takeover of Crimea by Russia is nearly complete. All that remains is the final vote on March 16. There would not be a vote if the outcome was uncertain.

    Troops Install Minefields, Border Markers in Crimea

    Bloomberg reports Pro-Russia Forces Occupy Ukraine as Separatist Vote Looms.

    Pro-Russian forces advanced in Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula, ignoring Western calls to halt a military takeover before the region’s separatist referendum. The U.S. estimates Russia now has 20,000 troops confronting a smaller Ukrainian force there. Ukraine has stepped up its eastern border defenses in the worst standoff between it and the West since the Cold War.

    Pro-Russian units planted minefields in the Kherson region, north of Crimea on Ukraine’s mainland, and began to install border markers between the two regions, news website Khersonskie Vesti reported today. Ukraine’s border control service said Russian forces now control 13 border bases as well as the ferry crossing across the Kerch Strait to Russia, preventing guards from inspecting trucks arriving in Crimea.

    Where The Russian Troops Are – The Full “Pre-Takeover” Infographic



    zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 03/13/2014 11:47 -0400

    As we reported yesterday, Crimea is last week’s story. Now it is all about east Ukraine. In that vein, moments ago John Kerry’s latest stand up comedy routine hit the tape which contained, besides the usual laugh lines, this particular pearl:

    KERRY SAYS RUSSIA DOESN’T YET HAVE FORCES FOR UKRAINE TAKEOVER

    US Drone “Intercepted” Over Crimea By Russian ‘Self-Defense’ Forces



    zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 03/14/2014 15:20 -0400

    An American scout-attack drone, “almost invisible at a height of 4000 meters” has, according to AFP, been intercepted in the Crimean sky. Reports from the Russian state arms and technology group Rostec stated, judging by side-markings it was an MQ-5B drone – which is likely part of the 66th US Recon Brigade based in Bavaria. It was possible to break the drone’s link with its American operators with the help of the EW (electronic warfare) complex Avtobaza. As a result, the device made an emergency landing and passed into the possession of the self-defense forces almost unbroken.”

    BREAKING: Russian Ammunition Being Held Up In Port (Update)



    Shipping traffic in the black sea

    UPDATED at 9:25 PM eastern time.This is a fluid ongoing situation. This is what we have been told so far …

    Phil White is in Florida attending the Big3 industry shoot. Wolf is one of the main sponsors and the provider of all ammunition used at the event.

    Yesterday Phil spoke to a ammunition representatives. They told us that the Ukrainian situation would probably not affect ammunition supply.

    The situation suddenly changed this morning. An industry spokesman informed Big3 organizers that shipments of ammunition from Russia are on hold.

    Ships carrying ammunition from a Russian port (we don’t know which port, but I assume it is Novorossiysk) should have arrived in a Crimean port to pick up additional ammunition from Ukraine before sailing West. These ships have not arrived in the Crimea or the United States. It is not known why they have not arrived (or if they have arrived, why they are not reporting in). The lines of normal communication with the shipping companies have either chosen not to cooperate or provide information as to the status of the shipments.

    According to spokesperson from the ammunition industry, Putin may be responding to threats of sanctions from the European Union and the Obama Administration by holding ammunition shipments. Russia considers their need for ammunition to be greater than Russian ammunition makers need to earn export dollars. This may be an accurate assessment, or it may be incorrect. Right now nobody knows for sure what is going on.

    He have also been told by industry insiders that Ukraine factories are not shipping ammunition either. Likely because the Ukrainian Military is also stockpiling in advance of a potential conflict.

    Afew days ago a TFB representative spoke to Tula (one of Wolf’s Russian competitors). They told us supply would not be a problem even without Ukrainian factories, but the political situation was what they feared most. I was planning on reporting this on TFB today. Turns out their fears may have been justified.

    We will endeavor to keep you up to date as the situation continues to develop. I want to stress that this is a very fluid situation. It may change at any moment.Only time will eventually answer our questions.
