WW4 File: UKRAINE, RUSSIA AT WAR: Kremlin full of vitriol for Kiev “junta,” Western “meddling” in Ukraine; Putin condemns neighbor’s revived “anti-terrorist” campaign against pro-Russia separatists (i.e., under control of Russian special forces): “If Kyiv really began to use the army against the country’s population… that is a very serious crime against its own people”; Russian FM Lavrov blames West for Yanukovich’s ouster: “In Ukraine the US and the EU tried to stage – let’s call things what they are – another ‘color revolu- tion’, an operation to unconstitutionally change regime”; Russian DM Shoigu: “If this [Kiev’s] military machine is not stopped, it will lead to greater numbers of dead and wounded. Planned exercises by NATO forces in Poland and the Baltic countries do not foster normalisation of the situation surrounding Ukraine, either. We are forced to react to such a development of the situation. As of today, our battalion tactical combined-arms groups from the S. and W. Military Districts have begun drills in areas bordering Ukraine”; video from Novoshakhtinsk, 10 km from SE Ukrainian border, shows columns of Russian tanks, APCs, artillery on city’s main motorway
