You're reading: Boris Danik: Mr. President, how many aircraft carriers?

The Russian naval base in Sevastopol on the Crimea made me
recall the above mentioned show of ingenuity. After all, in Sevastopol they
have a bunch of naval ships described in the last 20 years as rusting junk, but
now made appear like a power house, and showing lots of political hey.

Not only that. Russia’s recent occupation of Crimea probably
was planned as the first step in a military assault on Ukraine  —  or
as an option depending on the level of anti-Kyiv turmoil that can be generated
in Ukraine’s eastern cities. The optimum scenario would be to overrun most of
Ukraine, capture Kyiv, and install a puppet government.

Russian media today are orchestrating brazen lies  — the kind exuded from Berlin radio just
before the Nazi onslaught on Poland in 1939 
— this time accusing Ukraine’s new government of mistreating ethnic
Russians, calling the government illegitimate and ruled by extremists.
