Because Russian sees itself as a belligerent, against Western interests, I believe that Ukraine will receive special attention from the West in that it is occupying the furthermost eastern border areas confronting Russia.
One man finally said the truth. Ukraine is viewed in West as a hammer against Russia, and Ukrainian political elite is trying to exploit this status. Though many young Ukrainians prefer to escape the life in the hammer according to polls. If depopulation of Ukraine will continue with the current rate, who will fight to return Crimea back to Ukraine (after Russia evaporated somehow)?

Funny thing:  I had breakfast with a gal from Moskva this weekend.  She pulled out the new 2000 note Ruble pictures.  She showed me the back of the bill which is an engraving of a bridge.  She immediately told me that it was the bridge being built between Krim and the Russian mainland.  Then she went on to say how important Krim is to the Russian psyche.  I had to laugh to myself.  Because when I looked at the engraving, it is not the Kerch Strait Bridge, but instead is the Russky Bridge in Vladivostok.  I would have thought that a good Muscovite would have known the difference.


Good story, thanks. Even Moscow blondes want to keep Crimea in Russia, that is a strong indicator of the mood :) Tomorrow first cars will pass over the bridge, and the rail will link Crimea with Russia in the next year.

then explain the complete reorganization of Russian military post-crimea
which has been reorganized from top to bottom as a blitzkrieg attack force striking out from
the southern military district in Rostov
instead of a counter-NATO force...

guess what"
thanks to "where's my iphone" app, I know the position of several Russian brigades in the southern military district
the gift that keeps on giving...

When I was stationed in Ft. Bragg, there was a paratrooper unit always ready to be dropped anywhere in the world in 24 hours. It was never used when I was in the military. Russia may have a unit ready for blitzkrieg on Ukraine but it may never be used. These military unit are an option a president can use. Russia's high speed military units job now is to intimidate and discourage Ukraine from retaking control of East Ukraine just by being stationed near the border.

how does he acquire 10 million USD of swiss watches on such a small salary

Putin has been reorganizing his military to be stronger even before Ukraine. He's fond of the USSR glory days and would like to bring back those memories.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said the new bridge “will definitely be handy for the occupants when they have to urgently leave our Crimea.”

Russia will not ask for anyone's permission to build infrastructure on its territory. This was the response to the US, which condemned the opening of the Kerch Strait bridge between Russia and Crimea.
The US State Department accused Russia of flouting international law by building a bridge to "occupied" Crimea without the permission of the government of Ukraine.
“As one could predict, Washington is not happy with that. But Crimea is Russia,” the Embassy of Russia in the USA said in the statement on Tuesday. “We shall not ask for anybody’s permission to build transport infrastructure for the sake of the population of Russian regions.”

Well, everyone needs a hobby.  Besides invading other countries and killing your political opponents/dissidents.
