It Begins: Ukrainian Soldier Dead as Russians Storm Base
Bang a gong, it is on:
Troops stormed a Ukrainian base on the outskirts of Simferopol on Tuesday, according to a Ukrainian military spokesman.Normally Hitler comparisons are over-the-top rhetoric. In this case, though, the comparison works.
One Ukrainian officer was initially reported to have been wounded in the neck. The Interfax and Reuters news agencies reported that a soldier had been killed.
Kyiv has blamed Russia for the attack.
Oh, yeah, Russia has "annexed" the Crimea and Putin is -- literally -- laughing at the sanctions the US has placed on them.
