Ukraine: APCs and choppers descend on Slavyansk

APCs and military helicopters carrying Ukrainian interior security troops could be seen entering Slavyansk on Thursday, reportedly leading to fighting with anti-government protesters on the outskirts of the eastern Ukrainian city.

As interim government forces attempted to take control of the city, five people are alleged to have been killed as a result of shootings, one policeman injured and three checkpoints manned by anti-government activists destroyed.

Locals in the neighbouring village of Hrestische reported sightings of eight armoured infantry vehicles in the morning. Two military helicopters were also allegedly visible above Artyomovsk. Residents of Slavyansk are being warned of the escalation of fighting by police via loudspeaker, with most shops and schools remaining closed as a result.

A civilian is no longer a civilian once they pick up weapons against a group of people. In this case, pro-Russians against eastern Ukrainians. This takes them from civilians to combatants.

This wave to retake government buildings would have happened one way or another.

Don't go breaking into your neighbors house, burning and destroying things, beating up the occupants, and telling them, and everyone in the neighborhood that its your house.

Revisit the facts. The riots started before the previous president evacuated to Russia. The government had no choice left except vote and appointed a leader. That is not illegal. Its smart. It leaves a nation still governed, even if you don't agree with his/her views.

In the moment of opportunity Russia floods a sector of Ukraine and annexes said parcel as its own via votes. (Pretty convenient).

Then the riots and protests turned on the current leader/s (now current).
Combatants storm and take over government buildings (not citizens).
Now the government comes back to reclaim their buildings on their lands. Who would have thunk!?

Russia threats assault.
No one ever would think Russia would do that! Pfft. With troops on the border, sly military flights as far west over Europe.. Ahem.. Err international waters...

U.K. and the Netherlands must be closer to Russia than even the best maps provide..

No. Russia is not the one being provocative. Right.

Putin should declare a no-fly zone over the entire South-East of Ukraine and start shooting down everything flying.  This will send a message to the punks in Kiev and their Nato puppet masters that from now on their own physical safety is in question.
