WW4 File: UKRAINE, RUSSIA AT WAR: Russian military wraps up massive exercise, pulls back to bases after reportedly massing near N., E. Ukraine, test-fires ICBM near Caspian Sea to make point; deadline for Ukrainian forces to surrender in Crimea passes without threatened Russian assault; Putin finally addresses crisis: denies Russian troops in Crimea, only “self-defense teams”; no plans to annex Ukraine’s autonomous region; insinuates Kiev’s leaders are “neo-Nazis, Nazis and anti-Semites,” orchestrated “unconstitutional coup,” “armed seizure of power”; admits Yanukovich “legitimate president” but “no political future,” Moscow received request to “protect welfare of local population,” but no immediate need for military intervention in Ukraine

So, is the Ukraine crisis over just like that? Not if Moscow has its way. See previous post, with link to Nyquist’s analysis.
