This action is openly declaring war on Russia, and is the same as attacking any other province of Russia.
No matter what the dirt bags in DC say, or the the dirtbags in Ukraine say, Crimea is lawfully Russian, because that is how the people of Crimea voted in a referendum.
Russia did not arbitrarily annex Crimea with miitary force.
Putin is a man with patience when it comes to Western schleps of the CIA or brain dead neanderthals of NATO.
He has shown restraint more than any other world leader.
However, if Ukraine is actually foolish enough to think that even with the assistence of Turkey, which is a NATO memberstate, Ukraine will be able to take Crimea from Russia without resistence, Ukrainian officials are in for a rude awakening, no matter how CIA scumbags describe their motives, while using Ukraine government pawns as fall guys.
