Re: Eastern Europe/Ukraine

At this point the Russians might as well just takeover the Russian-dominated parts of Ukraine and establish a direct land-link to their newly-acquired Crimean peninsula. Why not? It's clear the US orchestrated this whole Ukraine uprising from the very beginning as part of a broader plan to revive th...
