    The UK, US and Russia (and later China and France) signed the "Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances" with Ukraine in 1994, providing security assurance for Ukraine in return for them dismantling their nuclear warheads.

    Russia has violated this obligation with Ukraine by invading Crimea, and in accordance to the Budapest Memorendum the US and the UK are partially responsible for the countries protection and security.

    Yeh, I know this, just some sort of sarchasm from me... in fact, I am full heart with Ukraine people and hope that everything will turn out for better... I believe that western countries especially US should do more than just repeating the same text over and over. :)

    Yeah I guess so, but what can the US really even do? It's not like they can just face up against Russia militarily, that would cause World War 3...

    Plus the US has been involved in so many illegal conflicts around the world, whatever they say comes off as somewhat hypocritical don't you think?

    Russia is not afraid of west anymore, like it was ~ 20 years ago... I believe there should be power balance between West and East in order to ensure peace in the world, especially in Europe... US, EU, NATO should give more direct signals to Mr. Putin for him to chill a bit... I have watched Putin's live conference today, and it seems that diplomatical, economical pressure on Russia started giving some results already but it's pretty early for conclusions, as Putin could be quite unstable and you never know what could happen next... I believe that Ukraine did the right choice by trying to go diplomatic route to solve this without "opening fire" first... as it's what Russia waited... that Ukraine would fall under their provocation. (We could remember Georgia - Russia conflict back in 2008... it was a provocation from Russia, just heavy PR propaganda machine showed that Georgia were aggresors).

    And now Putin has nothing to justify his actions, here are some remarks of Samantha Powers from yesterday's UN Security Council Meeting on Ukraine, that I believe concludes some of my thoughts.

    Thank you Madam President. Listening to the representative of Russia, one might think that Moscow had just become the rapid response arm of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights. So many of the assertions made this afternoon by the Russian Federation are without basis in reality. Let’s begin with a clear and candid assessment of the facts.

    It is a fact that Russian military forces have taken over Ukrainian border posts. It is a fact that Russia has taken over the ferry terminal in Kerch. It is a fact that Russian ships are moving in and around Sevastapol. It is a fact that Russian forces are blocking mobile telephone services in some areas. It is a fact that Russia has surrounded or taken over practically all Ukrainian military facilities in Crimea. It is a fact that today Russian jets entered Ukrainian airspace. It is also a fact that independent journalists continue to report that there is no evidence of violence against Russian or pro-Russian communities.

    Russian military action is not a human rights protection mission. It is a violation of international law and a violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the independent nation of Ukraine, and a breach of Russia’s Helsinki Commitments and its UN obligations.
