The British Empire occupied one third of the world's surface. We invaded and colonised everywhere and even drew and created boundaries making counties up like Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Isreal, Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi and so on, places that litteraly didn't exist prior. The Amercians took North Amercia from the native Indians. The Amercias "stole" or "Annexed" Texas from Mexico, now Amercia says it's thiers and doesn't let Mexicans in: The list is literally endless....

As i said at this point Crimea is Russian, the Ukranian ships were tresspassing. Crimea is Russian as Canada or Australia, India and so on and so were once British....
The Fauklands: Argentinia say it's thiers, we say it's ours.

We took Gibraltar from Spain 300 years ago, as Amercia took Costa Rica and Peurto Rico from Spain or as the French took Vietnam from the Vietnamese and the French Congo from the Africans etc, etc, etc.

The Japanese, the Turkish Ottomon Empire, the Roman, Empire, The French Empire, the German Austro Hungarian Empire, the British Empire, the Spanish Empire, the Russian Empire, the 4th Reich, The Soviet Union, the Europian Union etc, etc.

If the Spanish roled into Gibraltar we, the British would be saying it's ours and the Spanish saying it's thiers, same as what a happening in Ukraine.
It's all semantics, as the saying goes: Possession is 9/10 th's of the law
О чем мы говорим? Украинские военные корабли вторглись в воды Российской Федерации. Российские военные более десяти раз сообщали им, что они вошли на территорию России и *предложили* вернуться в нейтральные воды. Украинские военные корабли проигнорировали все предупреждения и перешли на стратегический объект - "Керченский мост".
Для справки: нынешние депутаты Украины и Поддерживаемые правительством радикальные нацистские организации неоднократно заявляли о намерениях взорвать Керченский мост (совершить теракт).
Ситуация: 2 боевых катера + буксир (поиск показал: внутри много оружия), вторгаются в территориальные воды другого государства и стремительно двигаются к стратегическому объекту - что делать?
Согласно Уставу российских военных: контакт (радио, Ракетная установка), предупредительный выстрел и если нарушитель не прекращает дальнейшее уничтожение нарушителя государственной границы. Русские моряки показали человечность и не топят корабли! Много часов их блокировали, велись переговоры, в итоге заставили сдаться!

Украицы сами смеются с этой причины военного положения, великий порошенко знает что делает

Idiots,in USA they will shoot you like pirate. slaves always like this poor Ukraine.
This actually goes back to obama whether you like it or not. Back in the day when Ukraine wanted to give up their nuclear weapons, they contacted us. We worked out a deal with Ukraine saying that we would back them up(physically) if anything were to happen to them. When Russia invaded Ukraine and took over Crimea, obama did absolutely nothing even though we promised to help them.
Pip Yorkie
Russians in Ukraine wanting to join russia, shocker it's almost as if like multiculturalism doesn't work.

The Ukrainian ship entered to waters of Russia. The laws you invented EU, Ukraine broke. So do not be hypocrite.
Jasen Jahn
This is like if USA attacked Mexico. Of course we could take over Mexico—politically (cia takeover) or with force.
Arkadiusz Konwerski
I hope the USA is going to crush Russia one day. Greetings from Poland

As much problems is Kiev has been it's hard for Russia to say that they are not at fault in this situation
Colin Tan
Attacks on Ukrainian vessels are considered Act of War on NATO.

Can Russia Invade Europe? Ukrainian president summons war cabinet 1 day ago   10:02

if Russia was to invade Europe, how would it do it and could it do it at all?

In 2017, Russia conducted a series of military exercises known as Zapad, or “exercise West”. With their roots in the Soviet Union, Zapad military exercises have traditionally been shows of force, meant to let NATO know that Russia was willing and ready to fight. Despite assurances that Russia's 2017 Zapad exercises were nothing more than preparations for counter-terror operations, an exercise that was supposed to feature only 10,000 personnel turned into a 100,000 strong mock-invasion of eastern Europe with one clear message: Russia's military might is back. Today, we look into a very scary scenario, in this episode of The Infographics Show, Can Russia really invade Europe?

After the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia's military severely atrophied, and despite remaining a sizable force its readiness and capabilities were all but defunct. . After such an embarrassing performance, Vladimir Putin vowed to improve the readiness and capabilities of the Russian military, culminating in a ten-year modernization push that has yielded huge results. While still mostly a conscript army, Russia's military is seeing a huge expansion in the size of its volunteer forces- an important development given the drastically better performance and morale of an all-volunteer military force such as the US' versus a conscripted force. New battle tanks and fighter aircraft have also dramatically improved its capabilities both on the air and on the ground, and while its fleets remain a glaring weakness, they would ultimately have limited use in a European battle. Russia has also dramatically improved its logistical capabilities, something that it has historically struggled with even under the former Soviet Union. Heavy road transport units for ferrying armor to the front lines via road networks has reduced Russia's reliance on rail transport to get its tanks to the front lines, with rail lines being a natural first target for NATO bombardment. Russia has also doubled down on the one area it has traditionally outperformed NATO in, ground-based anti-air platforms. The introduction of the S-400 and the future deployment of the S-500 anti-air defense system has given NATO planners serious concerns, and with a range of up to 250 miles (400 kilometers), a single battery of S-400 units can threaten large swathes of a European battlefield. Russia has also invested heavily into modernizing its non-strategic nuclear forces, outpacing even the US in this arena.
