IT SADDENS ME that the unrest in Ukraine continues. It is a delicate situation unfolding. Extremely delicate. Crimea is an important providence to Russia. It has a large military base there, the Black Sea Fleet.
The Majority of Ukrainians that live in Crimea call themselves, not Ukrainian, but Russian. They speak Russian and they desire Russia’s support. The majority want Russian troops to come in and protect them. Russia wants Crimea, it is too vital of an area for them to lose it. They won’t walk away from Crimea.
With the Crimea population’s majority pro-Russian there is only one logical thing to do if one considers the “democratic” process that political and media leaders have been advocating and that is to break off Crimea from Ukraine and hand it over to the Russians. The people of Crimea have spoken that they are Russians and that they want Russia, the Mother Country, to come save them. While that is the logical thing to do “Democratically” there is the dilemma, Ukraine, except for Crimea and areas that border Russia on the east that are mostly pro-Russia are anti-Russian.
If the escalation is not defused immediately civil war is inevitable. It is unlikely any nation on this planet will stop Russia from taking Crimea. The turmoil in Ukraine is an event of escalating sorrow. We all must pray for peace, and for comfort for all the souls that endure these turbulent times in Ukraine. A war with Russia spells only one thing, Russia would crush Ukraine. That would be tragic for all parties involved, and the world.
These are trying times for Ukraine, a nation that has a history of trying times and hardship that few nations have endured for such a prolonged history. While I support peace in the region, it is difficult for me to either choose sides or to vision peaceful results to a situation that has been stirring for decades and is inevitably about to come to the boiling point. The region will likely see an eruption that will likely spill blood in magnitude portions. The world will be absolutely helpless.
Failing to choose sides, does not mean I do not desire to see peaceful democratic solution to a tragic problem, it means I have zero confidence in today’s world leaders, at home and abroad, to lead toward peace. I wish I could. I wish I did.
The events unfolding in the Crimea region of Ukraine greatly disturbs me. The world stands behind and stood behind the Ukrainian people for their plea for democratic society and the right to self-governed and to be a sovereign nation. The fact that the people of Crimea desire Russia as their sovereign power and representative support constitutes the dilemma that will likely shed a dark period in the region as was seen in Georgia. Sarah Palin had warned of such escalation in the region years ago. The world ignored and rejected the notion. Now the souls of Ukraine will pay the price.
What we have is a problem that years ago should have been at the discussion table and has been rejected. Now we are faced with the ultimatums, simple and pure, peace or war, between Russia and Ukraine, peace or civil war between Ukrainians, Crimea separated from the body of Ukraine or Russia performing an unlikely precedent in its history, especially among former Soviet Union states and allowing Crimea–and its naval base and majority Russian people– to remain in the control of an anti-Russian Ukraine. Flipping a coin can only predict the outcome if both sides of the coin are either heads or tails. Regardless, the world, Ukraine, Russia and Crimea, all lose. The future could never be the same.
The world body needs to act at this very hour to enroll Ukraine into NATO or forever hold it’s peace.
The rest of us, especially Orthodox Christians, need to pray and pray relentlessly.
The tears we shed will forever flow in the river of agony and despair.
The gates of hell are wide open.
Will the iron fist and the hammer and sickle swing low and forceful again?
Sarah Palin’s 2008 Prediction Comes True. The world leadership, or lack thereof, gave Russian President Putin the green light to go into Crimea. It should have been expected. Russia simply has too much at stake to walk away. The instability in Ukraine threatened the Russian interest, now the entire mess will get ugly.
