Putin: Deploying military force is last resort, but we reserve right

Russian President Vladimir Putin (RIA Novosti / Alexey Nokolskiy)
There was an unconstitutional coup and an armed takeover of power in Kiev, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated. Russia is puzzled why there was a need for it at a time when Viktor Yanukovich had conceded to all opposition demands.
The assessment was voiced at a media conference in Moscow.
Putin stressed that the Ukrainian people had a legitimate reason to protest against Yanukovich’s power, considering the overwhelming corruption and other faults of his presidency.
But he objected to the illegitimate way his ouster took place, because it undermined the political stability in the country.
He said that while he personally was not fond of months-long streets protests as a means to pressure the government, he sympathized with the Maidan demonstration members, who were genuinely outraged with the situation in Ukraine.
But at the same time he warned that what happens in Ukraine now may be a replacement of one group of crooks with another, citing the appointments of certain wealthy businessmen with questionable reputations.
Yanukovich is certainly powerless in Ukraine, but legally speaking he is the legitimate president of the country, Putin said. The way the new authorities in Kiev replaced him did not enhance their credibility.
Putin, who was given a mandate by the Russian senate to use military force to protect civilians in Ukraine, said there is no need for such an action yet.
He assured that the surprise military drills in Russia’s west which ended on Tuesday had nothing to do with the Ukrainian situation.
Putin cited the actions of radical activists in Ukraine, including the chaining of an official to a stage as public humiliation and the killing of a technician during an opposition siege of a parliamentary building, as justification for Russia to be concerned for the lives and well-being of people in eastern and southern Ukraine.

Incidents like those are why Russia reserves the option of troop deployment on the table.
The Russian president stressed that Russia wants to see equal participation of all citizens of Ukraine in defining the future of the country. The resistance to the authorities in Kiev, which is evident currently in the eastern and southern Ukraine, shows clearly that currently Kiev does not have a nationwide mandate to govern the country.
Asked about criticism of Russia over its stance on Ukraine, Putin dismissed the accusations that Russia is acting illegitimately. He stated that even if Russia does use force in Ukraine, it would not violate international law.
At the same time he accused the United States and its allies of having no regard to legitimacy, when they use military force in pursuit of their own national interests. He cited the campaigns in Iraq and in Libya as examples of such behavior.
As for the sanctions Russia faces over Ukraine, Putin said those threatening them should think of the consequences to themselves if they follow that path. In an interconnected world a country may hurt another country if it wishes, but it would be damaged too.
Threats are counterproductive in this situation, Putin warned. He added that if G8 members choose not to go to Sochi for a planned G8 summit, that would be up to them.
Putin dismissed the notion that the uniformed armed people without insignia who are currently present in Crimea are Russian soldiers. He said they are members of the Crimean self-defense forces and that they are no better equipped and trained than some radical fighters who took part in the ousting of Yanukovich.

Russia is not planning to go to war with the Ukrainian people, Putin stressed, when a journalist asked if he was afraid of war. But Russian troops would prevent any attempts to target Ukrainian civilians, should they be deployed.
Asked about the presence of snipers during the violent confrontation in Kiev last month, Putin said he was not aware of any order from the Yanukovich government to use firearms against the protesters. He alleged that the shooters could have been provocateurs from one of the opposition forces. He added that what he was sure of is the fact that police officers were shot at with lethal arms during the confrontation.
Putin does not see any political future for Yanukovich, which he told the ousted Ukrainian president himself. He added that Russia allowed him to come to its territory for humanitarian reasons, because if he remained in Ukraine he could have been summarily executed.
Russia will be watching the planned presidential election in Ukraine, Putin said. If it is conducted in an atmosphere of terror, Russia will consider it unfair and will not recognize its results, he warned.
The Russian government is currently engaging with the self-proclaimed govern of Ukraine with the goal of preserving economic ties between the two countries. However, any normal relations would only be possible after Ukraine has fully legitimate branches of government, Putin said. He considers that he has no counterpart in Kiev now, so he personally has no partner to communicate with.
Putin commented on the issue of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, which Russia committed to preserve. He said that Western powers reject Russia’s assessment of the events in Ukraine as a coup and insist on calling it a revolution.
Some Russian experts, Putin warned that if Ukraine had undergone a revolution, then the nation that came out of it is not the same that it was before, similarly to how Russia transformed after the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917.
If this is the case, Moscow may consider itself no longer bound by any treaties it has with Ukraine, Putin warned.

      Wake up People!

      • CHESS: PUTIN 7-0 OBAMA

        Putin is ready to swat Obama like a fly. It’s better for Obama to stay on the golf course than to get involved in this “man only” war.

    • voiceofreason

      I am no fan of Putin but, he is making more sense than I thought he would.

      • SuperDave2

        He makes more sense than Barack Insane Obama! :evil:

      • HereAmI

        Putin always speaks simple common sense, as does Assad.
        And, it is always unscripted.
        This is the difference between him and the sodomite.
        Putin has values, he has morals, he supports the Church.
        Obama has nothing but perverted desires; and he will say anything to anyone at any time depending on the circumstances.
        Instead of reason and logic to fight his employers’ battles, he uses Ericksonian hypnosis.
        He is a complete unmitigated fraud and antichrist.

    • doofus

      Once again, Putin steps to center stage. Syria, then Ukraine, what (where to) next? Whatever the purpose of his actions, he has stepped up twice now and taken the responsiblity of power from the US, and in the process has surrounded the US.
      /sarc/ Not to worry though, he means the US no harm. /end sarc/ What’s shaking next, Japan? S Korea? Cuba? Venezuela? etc…

      Yep and Kerry is planning on throwing more borrowed money to buy the gobbermnet in that country, typical of the neo-cons.

    • Barking Wolf

      So for a monetary consider of one billion US dollars, we can call off the war.

      Just have Yellen lower the bank rates between member FDIC banks (essentially printing money) and cut a check for the funny money.

      Stroke of a pen. Now it exists. Kinda cool.

      And we are not doing this for our own national debt is because …..?

    • willhart

      That is softening that suggests the Poer-Elite got together to have a closed door meeting…the G8 session scheduled for Sochi in June will probably be back on and the War is Off…

    • TC

      At one time the Soviet Union was in the same position as the US. It had a huge military machine and bases all over the world, but it was broke. It could attack and hope for victory or it could collapse and start over. Reagan managed to convince Gorbachov that collapse was better than war. Putin is giving it the old college try, but the cards are not in his favor. Gorbachov was a patriot who loved his people. It does not appear the leaders of the West are cut from that cloth.

    • StarRyder

      So if I get this, according to Putins way of thinking, if say here in Canada, the Quebec regime were to be replaced by a English government. Then that would give France the right to invade Quebec, militarily so as to “protect” the french speaking people.

      In Richmond B.C. China could send troops because they all speak Chinese.

      India can take over Surrey and Abbotsford because they are mostly Sikhs and Hindus.

      Welcome to Putins new world……I think the guys elavator is stuck between floors…..

      • SuperDave2

        You Got It! :smile:

      • HereAmI

        You haven’t got it at all. Putin must retain control of his Crimean naval base. That is the overarching consideration. He has a treaty with Crimea that allows him to do that, up to and including military intervention. If the illegally-installed ( by the jewess Victoria Nuland from the State Dept ) millionnaire jewish banker “Yats the Yid” is allowed to continue to run Ukraine from Kiev, the base would be shut down and replaced with a NATO base. This is why the US State Dept funded the “freedom fighters” who ousted Yanukovich; they want to shut Russia down and surround it with missiles. No great nation can allow this to happen, especially one which has all the aces by virtue of its gas exporter status. Your Canadian and other examples do not recognise this fact. If the UK took over in Quebec, France would not be militarily threatened by that fact.
        Putin has been extremely generous with the bankrupt Ukrainians wrt their several billion dollar gas debt to Gazprom; and he already gives it to them for about half what European nations pay. There is no reason why he would continue to be so generous if the country allied itself with the jews in Europe and the US; so Ukraine would lose its favoured nation status, plus it would be hooked into massive debt for ever, which is what the west wants. Already Christine Lagarde from the IMF is offering them huge loans. Is that friendship? Or more like a dealer selling the first line of crack for half price, until you are hooked; and then you can be destroyed.
        Read “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”. This is how the west works to achieve its vile aims, which are always to benefit Israel, no-one else.
        Thank heavens for V. Putin.
        A great chess player.

      When the country you were taught to hate starts making more sense then the country that taught you hate, you have to ask yourself how long were so many fools. I for one have never hated any other nation, though they tried to teach me these things. But I can understand why people throughout the world are so against the USA. I can only hope they have not allowed that hatred to also be directed at the american people. While some may deserve it for being ignorant, or blind patriots, the people are not the problem, its the policies and agenda of the leaders. And while the people are not stopping it, there are many that are trying and awake, lets hope they all wake up and prevent what was written long ago.

    • CHESS: PUTIN 7-0 OBAMA

      You have to like Putin just for his smart chess like comments. Compare these answers with Obama and the American arsehole president looks like a little boy with no toys.

      • Corporate Slave #010699-501C-3

        Some jokes just can’t figure it out. Listen to SS: PUTIN 5-0. You will get it soon, I hope. :lol:

    • Alan

      Iam- in re-bel-lion, of self… :!:

    • TRUTH

      HOW DOES IT FEEL WHEN PUTIN DOES NOT LISTEN TO THE GANGSTERS?
      THE SAME WAY THE GANGSTERS DID TO US WHEN THEY INSTALLED ALL THEIR DRONES, THEIR MONITORING HACKING GIZMOS, PUT ON MASKS AND CALLED THEMSELVES ANONYMOUS HACKERS, INSTALLED BY FORCE THE SMART METERS, SPRAY OUR WORLD, WATER SUPPLY, FOOD WITH HARMFUL CHEMICALS, ROBBED WORKERS IN THE FINANCIAL WORLD OF QUADRILLIONS AND QUADRILLIONS AND MURDERED INNOCENTS ETC ETC ETC.

      WE DID NOT LIKE IT AT ALL BUT THEY DID NOT LISTEN OR CARE TO LISTEN TO US SO TODAY,

      WE GIVE HONOR TO PUTIN AND WISH HE WAS OUR PRESIDENT AND RULER INSTEAD OF THE DEVILS THAT ARE RULING NOW TRYING TO CONTROL.

      PUTIN IS RIGHT, THE USA WILL BRING MORE GANGSTERS IN KIEV THAN THE CROOKS THAT WERE THERE.

      WE NEED PUTIN TO HELP US GET RID OF THE LOSERS THAT MADE OUR LIVES SUCH A MESS AND PLAN TO INVADE US AND OUR FAMILIES, CATCH US IN THE NIGHT AFTER THEY FORCED US TO GIVE THEM OUR WEAPONS. LOSERS LOSERS
      CAN YOU BELIEVE, WHAT SORT OF LOSERS WE ARE DEALING WITH. THEY WANT US NAKED OF DEFENCE, WHAT LOSERS. I HOPE PUTIN SHOWS THEM WHAT IS A REAL MAN. AS HE IS A REAL MAN AND SURELY NOT THE GARBAGE GANGSTERS HIDING BEHIND THEIR TRICKS

      HE SHOULD BE PRESIDENT OF THE WHOLE WORLD AND JAIL ALL THE BAD LOSERS GANGSTERS THAT WE WANT TO SEE IN JAIL SO MUCH. OH HOW WE HATE THEIR EVIL WORKS.

      WHO THE HELL THEY THING THEY ARE???????

      GO PUTIN GO

      GO PUTIN GO

      AND THANK YOU FOR TAKING CARE OF SNODEN SO THE GANGSTERS CANT KILL HIM

      GO PUTIN GO

    • SGde3a

      Bet you Kerry is dreaming about all the false flags that Ukraine can do to provoke Russia, now.

      This is all smoke and mirrors for the folks lower down the food chain……it could well result in a third world war….but at the highest level it is a big stakes poker game where the top military intelligence and masonic mutha luvers sit around a big Dr Strangelove table and make their “plays”…

      If Russia or China was really at odds with the USA …then their Presidents would quite simply announce on nationwide TV that 9/11 was a set-up …..but the reason they don’t is because they were in on it….”they” (Black Ops) had to let the top chaps in China and Russia etc know what was going to happen on that day otherwise there would have been what is known as the “spiral of alerts”

      And similarly neither China or Russia has confronted the USA over Chemtrails…that’s because once again they all sat around a table and came to an agreement……remember..comet ison followed by the polar vortex then floods across northern europe and china smogapocalypse……then lo and behold the entire worlds attention is grabbed by the “viking apocalypse”
