Russia Annexing Crimea is the Cost of US/EU intervention in Ukraine. By Michael Scheuer March 17, 2014 "Information Clearing House - "RPI"- - One wonders how deep a hole the United States and the EU are going to dig for themselves in Ukraine.
It was, of course, U.S. and EU leaders — and their media acolytes — who caused the problem we face today by intervening on behalf of self-styled “democrats” in Kiev who without foreign intervention could not have overthrown the Ukrainian president.

After Initial Triumph, Ukraine’s Leaders Face Battle for Credibility. KIEV, Ukraine — The United States and the European Union have embraced the revolution here as another flowering of democracy, a blow to authoritarianism and kleptocracy in the former Soviet space.

The challenges for Ukraine’s new leaders are many and varied. With President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia now openly intent on a military showdown over control of Crimea, the government faces a powerful test of Ukraine’s territorial integrity. 2014 Crimean crisis. The Crimean crisis is an ongoing international crisis principally involving Russia and Ukraine.
It involves the Crimean Peninsula, a multi-ethnic region which until February 2014 was administered by Ukraine as the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the administratively separate municipality of Sevastopol, both are populated by an ethnic Russian majority and a minority of both ethnic Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars. Currently, the Crimean Peninsula is administered by the Russian Federation as the Crimean Federal District. The crisis unfolded in late February 2014 in the aftermath of the Ukrainian Revolution, which resulted in President Viktor Yanukovych's impeachment by the Ukrainian parliament after his flight from the capital, setting May 25 for a new presidential election, the appointment of an interim President, and the formation of an interim government. Beginning on February 26, pro-Russian forces began to gradually take control of the Crimean peninsula. Background Crimea - Curiyo.com.
