Putin will march Russian troops into the area stating instability threatens the region. Catherine the Great invaded Crimea in 1783.....then broadened her reach....
The US has spent 5 billion to create havoc. This is a not so cold war....Prepare your portfolio accordingly. Please research via Google. The signs are here and we can no longer close our eyes.
Occupation cost money and Putin knows that! He benefits more from instability much more than having boot presents; effectively he controls East side and does not wanna pay for west side! EU will move their forces into Poland and surrendering countries and that is not what he wants. Over night his popularity went up by a 20 factor; he is now the most popular president; west effectively killed the opposition in Russia Those who understand the recent conflicts in Europe (such as Kosovo) won't repeat the same mistake. with that said, watch how the "Elected" officials messed that. Replace one corrupt government with another and one postpone the inevitable
Immortal Sammy, you are 100% correct. Now what happens when Kiev leadership have pressure from the people, and of course Nadal's A team? That is why "instability" will rule the day. Putin is a good chess player. I grant him that. In reality, there are also forces in one country ( starts with I) that is aghast at Putin's ties to Syria and Iran. They remain fumigating and may have had a hand in the rights, as a way of striking back.
