Security forces are on alert after the buildings of the Crimean parliament and administration have been seized by an unknown armed group. Ukraine's autonomous region is divided over the acceptance of new authorities in Kiev.


The buildings were seized by an unknown armed group at around 4am local time, according to the Prime Minister of Crimea Anatoly Mogilyov, who added it was not yet clear who those people were.

The men wore black and orange ribbons, a Russian symbol of the victory in World War II, according to AP. They placed a Russian flag on top of the Council of Ministers, one of the occupied buildings.

Crimea is an autonomous republic within Ukraine and has its own prime minister, who is appointed in agreement with central government in Kiev.

Some local pro-Russian groups, fearful of the nationalist rhetoric emanating from Kiev in recent days, have called for Crimea to secede from Ukraine and asked for Russia to intervene. Pro-Russian demonstrations, where protesters wave Russian flags, have been held in several regional cities since the weekend.

Two Russian Warships Enter Black Sea Through Bosphorus; Another Docks In Cuba


Huh. Then I found this comment:

Quote:The cuban story is very suspicious, it is likely propaganda planted to make Russia look more evil and threatening,,, they may be evil but this is psychological warfare..

two problems,,

First, the pictures of the ship in Cuba are fake or very old, not current

this is the ship on Jan 31 2014… note the rusty anchor and black marks on side… NOT on current pics..


Second, the Russian ship was there in 2012, so it isn’t anything new..

Ship in 2012… in Cuba


1 month ago,,,


Why would AFP say a Russian warship was docked in Havana?
