Ukraine Calls Up 40,000 Troops After Crimea Vote
« on: March 17, 2014, 05:32:01 AM »
Via Sky News:

Ukraine's parliament has approved a partial mobilisation of troops following Crimea's referendum supporting a union with Russia.

More follows...

Was there every a doubt Crimea would vote to join Russia? Between a very skilled agitprop campaign and the benefits Crimea will obtain from shifting back to Russia, it was a foregone conclusion.

Look for everything east of the Dnipro to start agitating for secession from Kiev next.
