Russia moves nine warplanes to Belarus to 'counter massing of forces on the border' ~ link ~ An interesting question is: Will Belarus join Russia in any full Ukraine invasion? Stirling
Six Russian Sukhoi-27 fighter jets and three transport planes have been deployed at Bobruisk airfield in Belarus. Earlier this week Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko invited Russian forces to fend off potential NATO threat.
“In case of continuing build-up of military forces in countries bordering Belarus, the country will take adequate response measures,” says a statement from the country’s Defense Ministry in Minsk.
Russia intensifies field exercises ~ link ~ We are witnessing a massive 'train wreck in slow motion' that will result in the Third World War or the total economic collapse of the world or both!!! Stirling
Merkel: Russia to face massive damage if no progress made on the Ukraine ~ link ~ The level of arrogance and outright obnoxious behavior from the western "leaders" towards Russia and the Ukrainian people is horrible. The global banksters and Zionists created the mess in the Ukraine, even going so far as to have Mossad and CIA snipers shoot people on both sides in Kiev's demonstrations, and to kidnapping MPs family members to force them to vote to unconstitutionally remove the elected president. Now they make demands that Russia basically surrender to their aggression! What the citizens of the EU/NATO nations need to understand is that their inaction is facilitating this madness! Where are the demonstrations in Europe and North America against this drive towards World War III. When ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE it will be TOO LATE!!! When good people do nothing, the evil ones run amok! Stirling
Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned that Russia risks “massive political and economic consequences” if it sticks to its position on Ukraine. On behalf of her EU and Western counterparts, she said they support imposing sanctions.
"We would not only see it, also as neighbors of Russia, as a threat. And it would not only change the European Union's relationship with Russia," Angela Merkel said. "No, this would also cause massive damage to Russia, economically and politically."
Speaking in Germany’s Reichstag on Thursday, Merkel said that EU members and other western nations, if necessary, are prepared to freeze bank accounts and impose travel restrictions on people and firms that Brussels suspects of being involved in violating Ukraine's territorial integrity.

Read full interview with Aleksandr Yakimenko
Shots that killed both civilians and police officers were fired from the Philharmonic Hall building in Ukraine’s capital, former head of the Security Service of Ukraine Aleksandr Yakimenko told Russia 1 channel. The building was under full control of the opposition and particularly the so-called Commandant of Maidan self-defense Andrey Parubiy who after the coup was appointed as the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, Yakimenko added.
Furthermore the former security chief believes that Parubiy has been in contact with US Special Forces that could have coordinated the assault.
Russia deploys 8,500 troops for artillery drill in south - with video ~ link ~ The way Russia fights a land war is to use mass artillery fire, from both tubed and tubeless (rockets) artillery, to 'sanitize' the line of march. What that means is they destroy everything in the way of their armored divisions and mechanized divisions. If they decide to take over eastern Ukraine or all of the Ukraine there is little that NATO can do to stop them without using tactical nukes or launching a counter-invasion at a later time...and that would go nuclear quickly!!! Stirling
Russia’s Defense Ministry has launched massive artillery drills in the Southern Military District involving some 8,500 troops and a large amount of hardware. It coincides with war games conducted by the country’s Airborne Troops.
Artillery units are to be deployed in 10 ranges as part of the training, the Defense Ministry said in a statement. They will demonstrate their tactical, technical and special skills and will carry out more than 50 field maneuvers. “The event involves some 8,500 artillery troops and a large number of rocket artillery systems, military and special hardware, including Grad-M, Uragan and Smersh multiple rocket launchers, Msta-S 152-mm caliber self-propelled howitzers, Nona artillery systems and Rapira 100-mm caliber anti-tank guns,” the statement said.
About half of the shooting practice exercises will be carried out at nighttime. The drills are focused on inter-service cooperation between artillery units and motorized, armor, airborne and amphibious troops, the ministry said.
Ukraine creates a 'National Guard' ahead of Crimea vote ~ link ~ The Rothschild's did the same thing during the French Revolution. This will allow the bandit coup government to fully arm the fascist radical forces. History is repeating itself in Europe today!!! Stirling
Ukraine's parliament has voted to create a 60,000-strong National Guard to bolster the country's defenses.
Russian troops hold military exercises near the Ukraine - with video ~ link ~ Russia said on Thursday it was stepping up field training for tank, artillery and infantry units in three regions next to the Ukrainian border in a powerful display of military might.
The move came as thousands of paratroopers also began exercises close to Ukraine on Thursday, while Russian gunmen patrol Crimea ahead of a referendum on it joining Russia on Sunday.
Obama issues new threats against Russia ~ Military action contemplated ~ link ~ The same day that Obama made these statements, one of the Maidan “freedom fighters” incorporated into the new government, Andriy Parubiy, the new security chief, announced that the parliament would vote Thursday to establish a 20,000-strong National Guard recruited from “activists” in the anti-Russian protests and from military academies to prevent “terrorist activities.”
Parubiy, one of the leaders of the fascist-dominated forces that spearheaded the coup, is described by Wikipedia as having founded “the neo-Nazi Social-National Party of Ukraine” in 1991, the year of the break-up of the Soviet Union. Wikipedia notes that in 2010, Parubiy asked the European Parliament to reconsider its negative response to awarding the World War II Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera the title of Hero of Ukraine.
Parubiy’s deputy in the new government, Dmytro Yarosh, is head of the fascist Right Sector. Together, they will head up a state-sanctioned and financed ultra-nationalist militia with a mandate to terrorize opponents of the new regime, as well as Jews and other minorities.

Obama issues new threats against Russia ~ link ~
Following a White House meeting with interim Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk designed to underscore US support for the newly installed government and ratchet up pressure on Russia, President Barack Obama issued new threats against Moscow.
Obama declared that Washington and the “international community” would “completely reject” the referendum to be held Sunday in Crimea on secession from Ukraine and affiliation with the Russian Federation. He reiterated the US demand that Russia withdraw its forces from Crimea and recognize the new right-wing, anti-Russian regime in Kiev, which was installed last month in a US- and European Union-backed coup led by armed fascist militias.
Russia starts new military exercises near Ukraine ~ link ~ The exercise includes a large number of artillery and Grad, Hurricane and Tornado multiple-rocket launchers, the Defense Ministry said in a statement on its website.

The State, the Deep State, and the Wall Street Overworld ~ link ~ In the last decade it has become more and more obvious that we have in America today what the journalists Dana Priest and William Arkin have called two governments: the one its citizens were familiar with, operated more or less in the open: the other a parallel top secret government whose parts had mushroomed in less than a decade into a gigantic, sprawling universe of its own, visible to only a carefully vetted cadre – and its entirety…visible only to God.
