Hear things suppressed by media's deceptive narrative. Russia's response to engineered coup & facts about Ukraine, Crimea & NATO most aren't seeing on TV. Much of alternative media gets it wrong too!

Ukraine is part of this expansion. Using what is called by the CIA "subversive incitement" the ordinary people's dissatisfaction with the government was harnessed by right wing and foreign sponsored elements who seized control of power in Kiev, resulting in a government controlled by right wing anti-Russian and foreign linked elements that make it a "counter-revolutionary coup". In an interview with the Voice of Russia renowned author Edward Herman gave his views on the situation in Ukraine and more calling the West the real aggressors in Ukraine." http://voiceofrussia.com/2014_03_20/U...

Russia was pushed up against a wall.
My view is that actually what's happened in Ukraine made it imperative for Putin to make a move. If he hadn't made a move, in this case where a hostile government has been emplaced in the Ukraine, with the definite aid of the West, and with the threat of NATO coming forward further into Ukraine. If Putin did not resist this, Russia was dead. I think he had no alternative.
The hostile government came into power in Kiev and it was put in there with the help of the West. This constitutes really a great security threat to Russia, that would make it kind of a defensive action. You could argue that the real aggression is from the West. They engaged in what the former CIA officer Ray McGovern calls "subversive incitement."
Maybe the most important point is that the West had engineered a coup in Kiev and placed in power a government that was definitely hostile to Russia and aligned with the West, posed a real threat that eventually they would close down the Russian naval base. So, this was genuine national security threat from the coup.
There was that deal between Gorbachev and the high officials of Germany and the US that in exchange for giving up East Germany, NATO would not expand one inch eastward. ... there was an understanding, and that understanding was violated very quickly, and the West and the United States have moved east steadily.
They've encircled Russia to a quite remarkable scale, they even placed missile defenses right at the Russian border pretending that this was to protect Europe against Iran, which was a fraud that would fool nobody.
