Cold War Reheats: U.S. EU NATO Warn Russia Re Ukraine/Crimea

Russian-army        Today at 8:00 p.m. EST, the President of the United States warned Russia to back away from confrontation with Ukraine, and that Russia’s military in the Crimea represents “a profound interference in matters that must be determined by the Ukrainian people” and would be “a clear violation” of international law.

Karen DeYoung of the Washington Post further quotes the President: “[T]he United States will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine.  Just days after the world came to Russia for the Olympic games, it would invite the condemnation of nations around the world.

“Any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing, which is not in the interests of Ukraine, Russia or Europe.”  In addition, the U.S. Vice President called Ukraine’s new Deputy Prime Minister “to assure him that in this difficult moment, the United States supports his government’s efforts.”

In ‘Top Ukrainians Accusing Russia OF AN INVASION,’ Michael D. Shear and Andrew Higgins, for The New York Times, open with:  “Ukraine’s fragile new government accused Russia of trying to provoke a military conflict on Friday by invading the Crimea region.”

Russia has moved several military units into Crimea––a spot situated between Russia and Ukraine and heavily men-tankpopulated with native Russians––taking over Crimea’s two main airports.  Ukraine’s U.N. Ambassador, Yuriy Sergeyev, told the United Nations Security Council that 10 Russian military transport IL-76 aircraft and 11 military attack helicopters had illegally crossed Ukraine’s borders.

According to Shear and Higgins, “Analysts said the increase in the Russian presence in the area had parallels to steps Russia took before beginning a war with Georgia in 2008 over the largely ethnic Russian regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, but there was little to indicate whether President Vladimir V. Putin intended to escalate the challenge to Ukraine.”
Russia justifies its actions because Ukraine’s ousted ex-president, Victor Viktor Yanukovych, held a press conference in Russia today, claiming he is still the President of Ukraine, and that the nation has been taken over by terrorists.

Meanwhile, the United States has pledged to augment support Ukraine should soon receive from the International Monetary Fund.  Gerry Rice, IMF spokesman, says “We are talking to all interested parties.”

Russia’s major problem is either identifying itself as a thuggish rogue ‘tribal’ nation, unwilling to negotiate without pointing weapons, or as a leading 21st century First World nation unwilling to resort to such primitive behavior.

If the U.S., U.N. and E.U. cannot convince Russia to enter this post-modern struggle to maintain peace, all nations should fully prepare for World War III. Russia already strongly backs Syria––home of the coming anti-Christ––in its civil war, and instigates revolts in Egypt, the Middle East and Latin America.

Anti-Christian fiction cajoles Russia into thinking it will win such wars, but God’s Word aligns the nation with Satan:  “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.  And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority (Revelation 13: 1 – 2).” Russia is always symbolized as “a bear.”
