Russian state television was reporting a huge turnout for the referendum and claimed there were "no armed men" at the polling stations.
State news agency Interfax quoted an international observer, Enrique Ravello, as saying he had seen an "unprecedented turnout". "There's no coercion, pressure on people. The referendum is being held peacefully, freely and openly," said the Spanish nationalist MP.

Ukraine Crisis: The last days of a united nation ~ link ~ The Crimea was given to the Ukraine Republic within the USSR by Khrushchev in 1954, prior to that it was always part of Russia proper. The Ukraine itself was a part of the Russian Empire and later the USSR for centuries! Stirling
While there was outward calm in Simferopol, military moves and strife further afield threatened the continuing dismemberment of Ukraine. The government in Kiev reported last night that Russian forces had moved across the border to occupy a strategic location in the Kherson region.
The foreign ministry in Kiev maintained that Ukrainian forces had scrambled aircraft and paratroopers to confront the “invaders”. Border guards in the area, however, insisted later that tensions had eased, with the Russians pledging that they had no offensive intentions and had made the move only to protect petrol depots against any “terrorist attacks”. The Foreign Office last night said they would be “very concerned if these reports proved to be accurate”, adding that Russia would be “held accountable” for the incursion.

The Ukrainian Pendulum ~ link ~ The is a good article, do take the time to read it all at the link. Stirling
A great European country the size of France, the biggest republic of the former USSR (save Russia), was taken over by a coalition of Ukrainian ultra-nationalists and (mainly Jewish) oligarchs. The oligarchs who financed the Maidan operation divided the spoils: the most generous supporter, Ukrainian Jewish multi-billionaire Igor “Benya” Kolomoysky, received the great Russian-speaking city of Dnepropetrovsk in fief. His brethren oligarchs took other Russian-speaking industrial cities, including Kharkov and Donetsk.
Washington sets World on War Path ~ link ~ Good article, do take the time to read it all at the link. Stirling
As I have been pointing out, the propaganda and lies issuing from Washington, its European puppets, New York Times, Time, and the entirety of the Western media are repeating the path to war that led to World War 1. It is happening right before our eyes.
Obama Off the Ukrainian Deep End ~ link ~ The neo-fascist coup d'état that overthrew the democratically elected government of Ukraine has the President of the United States firmly on board. Obama's support for this illegitimate, unlawful transfer of power in Ukraine has reached schizophrenic heights as an Executive Order has proclaimed a "national emergency" in defense of the Molotov tossing, spiked bat-swinging Neo-Nazis of Kiev. As Secretary of State John Kerry threatens to escalate the East/West conflict in cryptic allusions, the world now awaits the possibility of World War. US warships, planes and troops continue to scurry toward the region.
What Obama has done is absurd. There is no more diplomatic way of stating it. His hypocrisy and support for clearly illegitimate and unelected Ukrainian leaders now threatens the freedom, and lives, of Americans who call out this insanity, such as yours truly in this very article.
Obama's official embrace of the ridiculous rivals his predecessors, Bush and Cheney. This is no coincidence. The architect of the Ukraine regime change plan was none other than Dick Cheney's former adviser and Obama's current Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland. The Project for a New American Century lurches forward like Frankenstein's monster.

Right Sector Fuehrer: Kiev should be ready to sabotage Russian pipelines in the Ukraine ~ link ~ The leader of ultranationalist group Right Sector, Dmitry Yarosh, has threatened to destroy Russian pipelines on Ukrainian territory if a diplomatic solution is not reached with Moscow.
In a fiery address loaded warmongering rhetoric, Yarosh told his followers they should be ready to resist the Russian “occupiers.” The leader of the Right Sector made his address to the coup-appointed government in Kiev, as Crimeans made their way to ballots Sunday to vote to join with Russia or to remain within Ukraine.
“We cannot allow the enemy to carry out a blitzkrieg attack on Ukrainian territory. We mustn’t forget that Russia makes money sending its oil through our pipelines to the West. We will destroy these pipelines and deprive our enemy of its source of income,” Yarosh said. Continuing the bellicose rhetoric, Yarosh appealed to his followers, urging them to take up arms against Russia, if a diplomatic solution cannot be reached.

Ukrainian ultra-nationalist groups actively fought on Maidan to overthrow President Yanukovich. Now as the fierce riots in Kiev are over, they are unwilling to give up their violent ways, unleashing their “revolutionary” power against local authorities.
They hide their faces behind masks. They wear jeans and camouflage, helmets and bulletproof vests. Their arsenal is not rich, but it's quite powerful: spiked ball maces, baseball bats, batons, spades, and flames. Under the guise of "self defense units,” they attack activists without distinction in Kiev.

These are our questions to Senator McCain:
- Why did you have your service record and POW debriefing classified FOREVER?

- Did you narrate 32 propaganda broadcasts for the North Vietnamese and give interviews to communist papers as is stated at www.mccainbetrayspows.com?
- Why have you kept your Presidential Pardon secret? Did you know that you are the only person serving in Congress with a Presidential pardon?
- Was Colonel Hopper accurate when he accused you of providing flight paths and altitude information to North Vietnamese gunners, to help them shoot down American planes?
- Are you aware that Colonel Ted Guy was in the process of preparing treason charges against you when you received your presidential pardon?
- Why did you work to end all POW inquires? Why are you referred to as the Manchurian Candidate by POW/MIA groups?
McCain and Durbin to Obama: Send arms to the Ukraine ~ link ~ US senators John McCain (R-Arizona) and Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) have called on President Barack Obama to immediately send arms and other military equipment to Ukraine.
McCain, who lost the 2008 presidential election to Obama, said if he were the president, he would have already sent arms to Ukraine, adding one of the urgent requests of Ukraine’s new government from Washington is to supply them with weapons. “To make it happen, all the president has to do is order it tomorrow,” McCain said. "He can have it done tomorrow.

The missile launches are a continuation of North Korea's drills which it calls a preparation for an attack, and a test of its own weapons systems.

Flight MH370 watchers asking questions about Diego Garcia ~ link ~ During Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak’s bizarre and alarming press conference last night on missing airliner #MH370, he revealed that the multi-country search has now turned to a vast swath of the Indian Ocean.
Many civilian observers pulled out their maps and are asking questions about Diego Garcia. Nope, not a person named “Diego Garcia,” but Naval Support Facility Diego Garcia, which “provides logistic support to operational forces forward deployed to the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf areas of responsibility in support of national policy objectives” on “an atoll of the Chagos Archipelago in the British Indian Ocean Territory, located 7 degrees south of the equator.”
