Coup Government in Kyiv Demands U.S., Britain Mount Military Response in Crimea

•, Kurt Nimmo
 The corporate media in the United States identify the armed men as Russian soldiers, although it was reported on Thursday they “were wearing uniforms without any insignia, refused to talk to journalists, and it was not immediately clear who they were,” according to ABC News.

Ukraine’s scandal plagued speaker of Parliament, Oleksandr V. Turchynov, who is now the acting president of Ukraine, convened a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council to discuss the situation in Crimea. “Terrorists with automatic weapons, judged by our special services to be professional soldiers, tried to take control of the airport in Crimea,” he said.

Arsen Avakov, the newly installed interior minister and member of Yulia Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna party, said the incidents in Crimea amount to “military invasion and occupation.”

“It is a direct provocation of armed bloodshed in the territory of a sovereign State,” he wrote on Facebook.

In response to the activity by unidentified forces in the Crimea, the coup government in Kyiv demands the United States live up to an agreement signed in 1994.
