Ukraine Crisis: Russia Deploys Ships and Troops in Crimea
Photo of SARYCH southern most point of Ukraine on the Crimean Peninsula and used by the Russians as a naval base with Russian troops illegally occupying several maritime structure such as light houses. The territory around the Sarych headland has long been closed to non Russians by Russian troops and above the barbed wire the Russian flag has flown over the headland since Ukraine's independence from the former Soviet Union. As more Russian troops enter they already hold without contest important beach heads and bases of operation. Expect no opposed landing. Few headlines outside of the Ukraine. They will move out from these bases that they illegally never left and relatively quietly take what they want of the rest of the Peninsula.

HOWEVER, WE PREDICTED RUSSIAN INTERVENTION YESTERDAY AND DESCRIBED RUSSIAN MARITIME INTERESTS. THE PHOTO CAPTION ABOVE PROVIDES THE REASON WHY THE ARRIVAL OF RUSSIAN SHIPS AND TROOPS IN THE TERRITORY OF THE UKRAINE HASN'T DRAWN MUCH GENERAL MEDIA INK. THE TROOPS WILL DISEMBARK QUIETLY AT BASES THEY ALREADY HOLD. NOT ALL LAND GRABS BY THE BEAR ARE NOISY.
FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS TIMES
"Russia is believed to be deploying military ships carrying troops in the disputed autonomous Crimea region of Ukraine, as Moscow continues to refuse to recognize the interim administration which has taken control of Kiev.
Reports suggest the movement of Russia's large landing ship Nikolai Filchenkov, with at least 200 soldiers on board, at the Russian Black Sea Fleet's base at Sevastopol.
The ship is said to be accompanied by at least four other vessels with an unknown number of Special Forces Troops on board, sailing from the Russian port of Anapa to the Crimean/Ukrainian Sevastopol." -Source: INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS TIMESBy Vasudevan Sridharan , February 25, 2014 No internet link found.
AS THE BASIS OF THIS INFORMATION THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS TIMES NOTED:
"Oleh Tyahnybok, leader of the nationalist Ukrainian Svoboda, said he has proof of the movement in the form of a text message. Citing security sources in Crimea, Tyahnybok said: "I can show sms. Today at 12:00 foreseen arrival of Temryuk port in the Russian Federation in the city of Sevastopol large landing ship 'Nikolai Fil'chenkov' from the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation."
EDITORIAL NOTE: It is estimated by sources we consider reliable that the existing Russian bases on the Crimea Peninsula already house approximately 26,000 Russian troops. The Crimea Peninsula is an "autonomous"part of the Ukraine. The Russians will simply take what they want of it. The Western Reaction according to our predictions, less than the exertions over Hungary when the soviet tanks moved in during the Cold War.
