TRT World
Russia has deployed the advanced S-400 anti-aircraft missile system in Crimea, as tensions with Ukraine continue to escalate. The deployment comes after Russia seized three Ukrainian navy vessels on Sunday. Moscow and Kiev have traded barbs, with Russian President Vladimir Putin accusing his Ukrainian counterpart of plotting the standoff to boost his popularity ahead of elections. While Petro Poroshenko has accused Putin of seeking to annex Ukraine and urged NATO to send warships to the Sea of Azov. For more on these rising tensions, Sarah Morice has this report.

Im a Pakistani. I love both countries and Ukraine is not weak. It is about tactics. Im not saying Russia is better or Ukraine is. I hope things settle down and all russians and ukrainians must try coming along for an era of peace and prosperity.

Good luck to both from Pakistan

I know for a fact that whenever a video exposing Russia is released millions of Russian agents or patriots run to try and make the west look bad. Russia is the aggressor. Invading countries like Ukraine!

This will not go well for Russia .
Putin is bogged down in Syria dealing with Israel , Turkey , ISIS and the US . Spending millions . Russia has deployed forces on the western front facing ever increasing NATO MILITARY Hardware. Spending billions .
Russia may have to help Iran once the US begins the slaughter.
Now they may have to fight a war with Ukraine . There is no upside here . Ukraine will fight , they will inflict casualties , they will damage billions of dollars of Russian weapons . They will lose without US and NATO Support. This will convince the west to increase military spending and to isolate Russia economically .
Russia could face a huge defeat against the west . Let me stress this point IN UKRAINE .
Russia will obliterate any forces heading towards the homeland as would the US or NATO .
This must stay confined to Ukraine. Putin could underestimate US and NATO Resolve and face extremely destructive firepower on multiple fronts .
This is a very dangerous situation.
The US is not going to allow a small elite Russian Force to wage war in Ukraine . The US is growing more and more anxious over Putins belligerence and threats . Time for a smack down .
The West needs to arm And train Ukraine and deploy NATO forces in a defensive line against Russia. Then cut Russia off from all trade and transit from the Black Sea controlled by Turkey .

On the Front Lines with the Ukrainian Russia - Ukraine Tensions: Russia, 1 day ago   09:42

Since mid-January, fighting between the Ukrainian military and Russian-backed rebels in Eastern Ukraine has escalated. Dozens of civilians have died due to the heavy shelling.

The rebels of the Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) have been attacking Ukrainian Army positions in an effort to reach the city of Sloviansk. In this dispatch, VICE News travels to the Ukrainian Army's front lines in the village of Kodema to see how soldiers there, clad in German and British gear that has been donated to them, are preparing for the much talked-about DNR offensive.

We also visit the Ukrainian-controlled mining town of Dzerzhynsk to see firsthand what effects the fighting between the two sides has had on the local population.
