    The ruling elite of a NATO country which pushed for a strengthening of ties with USA was exterminated (Smolensk 2010 Crash) in the country which is  the first adversary of the same NATO and USA  and no-one asking inquiries, investigations, eventual sanctions except the Polish-Russian joint investigations which openly manipulated evidences???

".....Russia recognizes Crimea’s independence, defying new U.S. and E.U. sanctions
 By and , Published: March 17

The U.S. sanctions include asset freezes and travel bans on some of Putin’s closest aides. The European Union separately announced sanctions on 21 individuals, including several Russian military commanders. The European list did not include Kremlin aides.
A senior administration official said the White House would not respond to Putin’s decree recognizing Crimea as independent from Ukraine. Putin has scheduled a speech to the Russian parliament Tuesday morning.
Eastern European nations bordering Russia and Ukraine have been especially alarmed by the Russian moves. The United States has sent additional military assets to Poland and Lithuania, and Vice President Biden is being dispatched to those countries to offer further reassurance.
Some Republican lawmakers criticized the administration’s measures as insufficient. Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) called for “a far more significant response,” saying that sanctioning only seven Russians “is wholly inadequate at this stage.” Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.) described U.S. policy toward Russia as “appeasement” and called for an expanded American military presence in Eastern Europe.

    "...Poland plans to reform military brigade with Ukraine and Lithuania
    The proposal, to be discussed this week, will bring Ukraine closer in to the Western fold ....

    Poland’s defence ministry has announced it will re-launch plans to establish a joint Polish, Ukrainian and Lithuanian military brigade.

    The ministry said defence ministers will meet this week to discuss the formation of the brigade that would straddle Nato’s eastern border and bring Ukraine’s armed forces closer to the Western fold.

    Plans for a joint brigade had originally been struck in 2009 but had failed to make significant progress due to foot-dragging by Ukraine’s previous government, and difficulties in Polish-Lithuanian relations.

    But the Ukraine crisis appears to have provided fresh momentum to the organisation of the brigade.

    “Last week Ukraine’s deputy defence minister visited Nato headquarters and returned to the idea of the Polish-Ukrainian-Lithuanian brigade,” said Pawel Kowal, a Polish MEP who, in 2007, was the first to advocate the benefits of forming the multi-national brigade.
    “Now is the time to only to refresh the idea but also realise it,” added Mr Kowal. “Regardless of the result of the referendum in Crimea we have to continue with our commitment.”

    Given shared historical anxieties over Russian intentions Poland and Ukraine have, in the past, pursued good military relations. Some 1,600 Ukrainian troops served under Polish command during the Iraq war, and Ukraine’s forces also co-operated with Poles during the Nato-led peacekeeping operations in Kosovo.etc etc etc

  2. Jesuitical Biden in Poland - on the path of SJ Wolodimir Ledochowsky?


    Biden in Poland, Lithuania to reassure allies on Russia's borders

    By Roberta Rampton

    WARSAW Tue Mar 18, 2014 8:02am EDT
    (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Joe Biden landed in Warsaw on Tuesday on a mission to reassure allies in eastern Europe that Washington understands their anxieties about Russia's actions in Ukraine and will protect them if needed, officials said.
    On the two-day mission, Biden plans to discuss ways to help the region become less dependent on Russian oil and gas and limit Moscow's ability to use its energy supplies for political leverage, a senior administration official said.
    On Tuesday, Biden is scheduled to meet with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk and President Bronislaw Komorowski.

  3. Situation looks bad, Russian military attacking Ukrainian troops in Crimea

  4. Kaliningrad/Koenisberg also to keep divided Poland from Lithuania? And to melt them in NATO? Pls appreciate that "Both Poland, a former Soviet satellite, and Lithuania, a former Soviet republic, are now NATO members, largely because of their fear of Russia." and "The former head of the Ukrainian security service, Aleksandr Yakimenko, claimed that snipers in the Ukrainian unrest were acting under Polish and American orders.":


    Poland And Lithuania Wary Of Kaliningrad Being Base Of Next Move From Russia
    By Christopher Harress

    The passage of Crimea's secession referendum and the peninsula's likely annexation to Russia brought jubilant crowds into the streets there, but cast a chill over most of Ukraine and its neighbors.

    With Vladimir Putin's Russia seeming intent on redrawing international boundaries, other nations formerly under Soviet power may be wondering if their frontiers are secure.

    Wedged between Lithuania and Poland is the small Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, a snippet of the Soviet past that was left behind in part so Russia could have access to the Baltic Sea, and where it currently keeps its Baltic Fleet. The Russian Navy's Black Sea Fleet is based at Sevastopol, Crimea, center of the present conflict.

    While the Kaliningrad region doesn’t share the unrest that has troubled Ukraine and the Crimea, which Russia says obliged it to intervene there, it is still a cause for concern to its neighbors. Of particular note to Lithuania are the 170,000 ethnic Russians living within its borders, primarily in the port city of Klaipeda, which is close to Kaliningrad, and Visaginas, which is on the eastern border with Belarus.

    Nadia Diuk, vice president of the National Endowment for Democracy, said on a recent PBS show that Kaliningrad could act a base of operations for all kinds of incursions into non-Russian territory. Both Poland, a former Soviet satellite, and Lithuania, a former Soviet republic, are now NATO members, largely because of their fear of Russia.

    The Poles have been looking over their shoulders since the Ukraine conflict began, and since Russia accused them of setting up military training camps for the Euromaidan protesters in Kiev. The former head of the Ukrainian security service, Aleksandr Yakimenko, claimed that snipers in the Ukrainian unrest were acting under Polish and American orders.

    Just last week, Poland appeared to be fearing the worst, as it invoked a NATO rule allowing a member state to call for military consultations with allies if it feels threatened. Since then Poland and the United States have stepped up military exercises. In additon, the United States supplied additional military aircraft to assist the NATO air defense mission for the Baltic states.

    A fragment of the former German East Prussia, Kaliningrad, formerly known as Königsberg under German rule and famous as the birthplace of philosopher Immanuel Kant, was annexed by the Soviets in 1945 and during the Cold War was one of the most secretive and militarized regions of the USSR.

    The Russians still consider the Baltiysk naval base, their only ice-free port on the Baltic, a vital asset. Kaliningrad is also home to two Russian air bases. It’s unclear how many soldiers Russia has in the region, but it is known that short-range ballistic missiles have been deployed there since 2012.

    Ukraine officer 'killed in attack on Crimea base'

    Ukraine's military says an officer has been killed in an attack on a base in Crimea, the first such death since pro-Russia forces took control in February.

    Ukraine has now authorised its troops to fire in self defence.

    The attack came shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin and the leaders of Crimea signed a bill to absorb the peninsula into Russia.

    Western powers condemned the treaty and a G7 and EU crisis meeting has been called for next week in The Hague.

    The Ukrainian crisis began in November last year after pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovych abandoned an EU deal in favour of stronger ties with Russia. He fled Ukraine on 22 February after protests in which many died.

    'Military stage'

    An eyewitness told the BBC that armed men arrived in two unmarked vehicles, storming the base in Simferopol firing automatic weapons.

    'Military stage'

    An eyewitness told the BBC that armed men arrived in two unmarked vehicles, storming the base in Simferopol firing automatic weapons.

    Defence ministry spokesman Vladislav Seleznyov told Reuters the attack was by "unknown forces, fully equipped and their faces covered".

    The Ukrainians had had their IDs, weapons and money confiscated, he said.

    Interim Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk told an emergency government meeting: "The conflict is shifting from a political to a military stage.

    "Russian soldiers have started shooting at Ukrainian military servicemen and that is a war crime."

    Reports from the Crimean news agency, Kryminform, said a pro-Russia defence force member had been shot dead.

    Neither of the accounts can be independently confirmed or whether they relate to the same incident.
    Etc. etc. etc.
