Ukraine's Yanukovych asked for Russian troops

Yes, indeed. Now pull the other one, please.

The oldest Soviet trick on the long and barbarous Soviet record of "brotherly international assistance". And it seems to be dusted off and reused successfully.

I only wonder whether it was printed, scanned and e-mailed to Putin or faxed. And how old the printer ink on it is. My guess will be about two or three months.

How do they say "Bye bye, Crimea" in Ukrainian? Beats me.

Putin found in the party archives the letter by Janos Kadar from 1956 and simply replaced the word Hungary to Ukraine. The signature is not really relevant anyway.

Imminently possible. Good shot.

Ah, what does Kiev want with the beaches, anyhow? Nobody in Ukraine can afford the excursion. Besides, think of all the rusted ordnance from the "Crimean War" of, what was was it, the 1850s?

Oh Crimea, so many fond memories in my addled brain. Beautiful place really.

You mean that one?
