On November 27, Russia started deploying Bal coastal missile systems near the Kerch Strait, south of which an encounter between a group of 2 Ukrainian Gurza-class artillery boats and a sea-tug and Russian coastal guards had taken place on November 25.

Every launcher in the Bal coastal defense missile system carries 8 Kh-35 anti-ship cruise missiles equipped with 145 kg High Explosive Fragmentation warheads. The KH-35 has a range of 130-260 km (depending on the modification) and is capable of defeating ships with a displacement of up to 5 000 t.

The detained Ukrainian ships are currently stationed in the port of Kerch while local courts are determining measures of restraint for the 24 Ukrainian servicemen, including several intelligence officers. So far, they have been indicted with illegal crossing of the Russian state border.

On November 28, martial law is entering into force in 10 Ukrainian regions, in particular those near the borders of Russia, Belarus and the breakaway republic of Trans-Dniester.

Local sources fear that the Poroshenko regime may use the martial law regime to launch a large-scale crackdown on government critics across the country, first of all directed at opposition politicians, journalists and bloggers. Over the past few years, the current Ukrainian regime has become widely known for its oppressive actions against political and civic opposition as well as for its suppression of non-loyal media outlets.

In an escalation of absurdity, Chief of the General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces Gen. Viktor Muzhenko came up with a new fiction story about the mighty Ukrainian Navy and Russian aggression. According to him, a Russian S-30 fighter jet launched two missiles at the Ukrainian ships during the November 25 incident.

Clearly, the Ukrainian Gurza-class artillery boats and sea-tug evaded these missiles with Matrix-style moves because there is no other explanation as to why none of them was sunk.

    Although I want compromise in this region from both sides in order to redeploy forces South and East against ABORTION banning ISIS and Taliban; if I must choose sides here, I would have to choose Ukraine (and with it my own country, the USA, for once). This is primarily because one of the breakaway republics, I forget which, banned abortions, but also because according to Wikipedia, Ukraine has a much smaller disparity of wealth than Russia, and with it mostly goes the socialist argument. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_income_equality

      What has abortion to do with it? U have a fixation or what?

        Hes a Jew. What do you expect?

    • alejoeisabel

      Glad to see you, Mr. Cohen, taking sides with the Nazis. Zionists have always make strategic alliances with Nazis with so much in common.

      • Jonathan Cohen

        Nazis banned abortion in Norway, thus abusing Norwegians.

      And here you go, talking about abortions again… what a surprise.

    • basarov

    I read on another site an interesting ‘theory’ – that the Ukrainan Minister was telling the TRUTH – a sort of ‘coded’ truth to alert people but without having a car crash on the way home.

    Does anyone remember all the reports about thier being x5 Ukranian ships / boats and x1 NATO vessel escorting (perhaps Ukrainian flagged)?

    Apparently x2 Ukrainian ships/boats already in the Sea of Azov, and x3 Ukranian boats/ships were tracked approaching the bridge WITH x1 unidentified NATO / Ukranian flagged ship / boat.

    What happened to the Ukranian flagged NATO ship? If it was flying a Ukrainan flag it was Ukrainan.

    Is this the one fired on?

    If it was, surely not by an SU30 unless it was a specialist munition.

    Is the ship fired on the ship that had the NATO divers onboard to recover what many people are talking about and was thrown into the water?

    What if the SU30 talk is to get people thinking about what an SU 30 is used for?

    Why has everyone forgoten about the US EW plane and escort flying over head at the time (and reported on all English language Rusian News channels)?

    An SU30 or two, or four would be put up to get rid rid of those. Is this really what he is trying to say but cant?

    My personal opinnion is that ths whole incident was a war starting event, planned, funded and equipped by NATO (UK keeps coming up) that was foiled by joint Russian and Ukrainian coordination.

    It is clearly being covered up and downplayed by all sides, but the lieral PANIC of Ukraine and the massive movement of arms by Russia to the Crimean bridge tell a story that something much more serious than a tug getting rammed occured.

    Real interesting stuff. I love the deep conspiracy element. Will continue following this.

    The Ukrainians are very nice people and when somebody say against Ukrainians then I become angry because they are the people like us like native American or like Palestinians but the problem is their proxy regime that imposed by Washington on them to hold Ukrainian nation hostage. Now they cannot protest against these proxy regime. A bunch of evils from Washington have held them hostage.

      The overwhelming majority of the Kiev Junta are Jews. Jews were behind the forced famine in the Ukraine in 1936-37 that killed off 6-7 million people.

      Now they are back, and plan on more genocide.

  • Rob

    The child butchers from Washington want to make Ukraine a terrorists fast breeder country close to Russia…

  • Hisham Saber

    Whenever Jews come to power, crackdowns, oppression commence. See. The Ukraine, U.S. and even the whole Soviet Union during the Bolshevik Red Terror Revolution. Just ask any Palestinian henceforth, and you will get you answer.

    After the Holomodor ….. I cannot understand why Ukranians would allow any Jew inside their country.
    “The whole cement floor of the execution hall of the Jewish Cheka of Kiev was flooded with blood; it formed a level of several inches. It was a horrible mixture of blood, brains and pieces of skull. All the walls was bespattered with blood. Pieces of brains and of scalps were sticking to them. A gutter of 25 centimeters wide by 25 centimeters deep and about 10 meters long was along its length full to the top with blood.
    Some bodies were disemboweled, others had limbs chopped off, some were literally hacked to pieces. Some had their eyes put out the head, face and neck and trunk were covered with deep wounds. Further on, we found a corpse with a wedge driven into its chest. Some had no tongues. In a corner we discovered a quantity of dismembered arms and legs belonging to no bodies that we could locate.”
