They Began to Shoot in the Crimea

Russian and Ukrainian military have fired at each other in Simferopol. The details are still unclear, as well as who exactly was guilty (although it’s of course Putin’s government who’s guilty first of all because it was their decision to invade the Crimea), but several persons are wounded and at least one was killed. Ukrainians still hope to find a diplomatic decision, but the limited mobilization is going on, and the Ukrainian troops in the Crimea received an official permission to make use of arms: (in Russian) (in Russian) (in Russian) (in Russian)

One more (and almost inevitable, unfortunately) step has been made on the way to war. God help us to avoid an escalation…
