Ukraine Navy is No More – Joins Crimea


Why are we not surprised?   The United States neconservative initiated action in the Ukraine is backfiring.  The head of the Ukrainian Navy, Admiral Denis Berezovsky, just announced that the navy is now in the service of the Crimean Autonomous Republic.

I, Berezovsky Denis, swear allegiance to the Crimean people and pledge to protect it, as required by the [army] regulations. I swear to take orders of Crimea and Sevastopol’s Supreme Commander,” Berezovsky said as seen in video footage.   All Navy troops dislocated in Sevastopol are ordered to disregard any commands coming from Ukraine’s new self-proclaimed authorities,” the PM also declared. “Do not take any orders of using arms till my personal instructions.”  RT (Russia Today), Mar 2, 2014   

With Crimea out of the question, there are only four regions of the Ukraine that offer access to the Black Sea, Odessa, Kherson, Zaporizhia, and Donet’z each more aligned with the Russian Federation than their parent country.  That leaves the new government of the Ukraine virtually landlocked.  It also raises questions about the remaining forces in the Ukraine military.

Will other forces mutiny?  Will other forces follow orders by the self-proclaimed government of the Ukraine?

When you give  Russia the opportunity to act like Russia, it will do so based on its best interests.  On August 8, 2008, the colour revolution installed president of Georgia, Mikeil Saakashvili , decided to attack Russian troops in South Ossetia, a part of Georgia.  The Russians were there legally, according to previous agreements, but the president decided to flex his muscles.  He had “elite” Georgian troops attack.  The Russians responded, seized a number of key installations, and humiliated the Georgian military.

The Russian response to Georgia’s attack on August 8 was predictable. They have a number of vital interests in the region. The provocation by the tiny Republic of Georgia was a gift. It created an opportunity to extend Russian influence in response to an attack on their peace keeping personnel. In retrospect, this outcome was probably guaranteed with the installation of an intemperate, rash leader who received nothing but praise as he replicated the policies and tactics of the corrupt regime that he helped remove from power.  Michael Collins, Sep 5, 2008

Ironically, the overwhelming Russian response was greatly enhanced by its naval presence in the Crimea.

Why would the provocations from the Ukraine work out differently?

  1. Ah maybe because the tragedy unfolding from Imperial hubris requires a major war with Russia.

  2. “To save the world from nuclear annihilation . . . “

    Society was deceived worldwide after WWII by frightened world leaders who:

    1. Formed the UN on 24 Oct 1945

    2. Hid information about Japan’s atomic bomb production in Konan, Korea and the capture of that facility by the USSR in August 1945

    2. Hid knowledge of “powers beyond the dreams of scientific fiction” [1] in cores of

    _ a.) Heavy atoms like U & Pu
    _ b.) Some planets like Jupiter
    _ c.) Ordinary stars like the Sun
    _ d.) Galaxies like the Milky Way

    To understand how deceit put the survival of mankind at risk, study the last paragraph of F. W. Aston’s 1922 Nobel Prize lecture [1], the 1982 book by P. K. Kuroda, The Origin of the Chemical Elements and the Oklo Phenomenon [2], and Chapter 2 of my biography [3].

    • This is the information in Aston’s 1922 Nobel lecture that apparently scared world leaders into taking totalitarian control of society at the end of WWII:

      “Should the research worker of the future discover some means of releasing this energy in a form which could be employed, the human race will have at its command powers beyond the dreams of scientific fiction; but the remote possibility must always be considered that the energy once liberated will be completely uncontrollable and by its intense violence detonate all neighbouring substances. In this event the whole of the hydrogen on the earth might be transformed at once and the success of the experiment published at large to the universe as a new star.”
