Ukraine and Russia on the brink of war? Syrian War Report – August 19, 2019: 2 days ago   07:07

DW News
Ukraine has imposed martial law in parts of the country. Ukraine's president said it was necessary to prevent the "extremely serious" threat of a Russian invasion. The move follows Russia's seizure of Ukrainian warships off the disputed Crimean Peninsula. A number of Western nations have condemned Moscow, but the Kremlin insists that it was provoked. At an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, US envoy Nikki Haley said Russia had committed an "outrageous violation" of Ukraine's sovereignty.

Read this you Anti-Russian racist trolls! The Crimean went through series of conquests and invasions; by the early medieval period it had been settled by Scythians (Scytho-Cimmerians), Tauri, Greeks, Romans, Goths, Huns, Bulgars, Kipchaks and Khazars. In the medieval period, it was acquired partly by (KIEVAN RUS) but fell to the Mongol invasions as part of the Golden Horde. They were followed by the Crimean Khanate and the Ottoman Empire, which conquered the coastal areas as well, in the 15th to 18th centuries. In 1783, the Ottoman Empire was defeated by Catherine the Great. Crimea was TRADED TO RUSSIA by the Ottoman Empire as part of the Treaty provision. After TWO CENTURIES of CONFLICT, the RUSSIAN FLEET had DESTROYED the Ottoman navy and the RUSSIAN ARMY had inflicted heavy defeats on the Ottoman land forces. The ensuing Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca forced the Sublime Porte to recognize the Tatars of the Crimea as politically independent. Catherine the Great's INCORPORATION of the Crimea in 1783 from the defeated Ottoman Empire into the RUSSIAN EMPIRE increased Russia's power in the BLACK SEA AREA. The Crimea was the first Muslim territory to slip from the sultan's suzerainty. The Ottoman Empire's frontiers would
gradually shrink for another two centuries, and Russia would proceed to push her frontier westwards to the Dniester. In 1954, the Soviet government transferred Crimea from the Russian Soviet Federation of Socialist Republics (RSFSR) to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic(UkrSSR). Basically Soviet Russia borrowed Crimea to Soviet Ukraine which at that time Ukraine was still a Soviet territory! so now History repeats its self time came for Russia to take whats rightfully theirs! before the NATO forces and Yankees take it and turn in into a Military base against Russia! You think Russia will standby and watch? No why? 1. History 2. Russian Speaking people 3. Land 4. Military Strategy and access to Black Sea! 5. Russian Naval Base

Hey Russia🖕😶🖕
All Ukraine had to do was tell him they're going through there and there wouldn't be any problem. somebody wants them to go through there so that Ukrainian ships get blown up Ukrainian sailors get killed and then the certain country would put a base there or two or three or four

If you are a usa puppet then your good or not youre a dictator
Niki Haley talks about Russian Aggression after the -USA- CIA has invaded or overthrown or meddled in -every single- almost every country in the world.
And anyone who doesn't "SIDE WITH" the -Americans- CIA, must automatically either be on the side of "the terrorists" or a Russian troll. American logic! Winning!
Can we finally just nuke russia?

Government forces are rapidly advancing in southern Idlib inflicting large casualties to radical militant groups.
During the weekend, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Tiger Forces and their allies have liberated the villages of Khirbat Abidin, Hursh al-Tawilah, Mughr Hunta, the farms of Nijm, Nisr and al-Safar, and the Nar Hill. According to pro-government sources, at least 7 units of military equipment and 2 dozens of militants were eliminated in recent clashes.
In own turn, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies carried out several counter-attacks involving suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices in Madayah and northwest of Khan Shaykhun. Despite some tactical successes, they were not able to turn the tide of the battle and stop the SAA advance.
Government forces are currently aiming to cut off the M5 highway and encircle the town of Khan Shaykhun and other militant positions to the south of it.
