Putin is refusing to lay down his weapons which could mean trouble ahead for all of us. Has tensions rise between pro-Russian militants and Ukrainian forces in the eastern part of Ukraine, CIA director has gone to the capital of Kiev to meet face-to-face with officials. Meanwhile, ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych is accusing the CIA of encouraging Ukrainian authorities to conduct tactical operations, and, of course, this is a claim that the US agency denies. Who is right or wrong in this exchange of words? I for one know whose side I’m on 9and it’s not Putin’s side). The CIA boss' Ukraine stop came as armed, pro-Russian separatists occupied government buildings in 10 cities in the east despite warnings from Kiev.
A big war could be just around the corner if someone loses his head, with Ukraine's acting president Oleksandr Turchynov coming forward, blasting threats out of his mouth, threatening a "large-scale anti-terrorist operation" to reclaim the buildings, but so far that has been nothing but talk.
Meanwhile, according to US military officials, a Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea at the weekend.
The officials said a Russian Fencer made 12 passes, and flew within 1,000 yards of Navy destroyer USS Donald Cook at around 500ft above sea level.
War games as of yet.
Let’s hope it stays that way.
