    The Russians Have Already Shot Down Numerous US Drones Violating Crimean Airspace



    And one of them, the mother of all drones, the massive Northrop Grumman RQ-4 Global Hawk, was apparently commandeered by Russian electronic warfare and landed in Simferopol.

    The war you don’t hear about: numerous American military aircraft (albeit of the unmanned variety, though with the possibility of being armed and dangerous) have apparently been violating Russian airspace, leading to the Russians shooting - yes, shooting - them down following the refusal of the Americans to acknowledge Russian diplomatic notes of protest.

    The military violation of the territory, including the airspace, of a sovereign state is ordinarily taken to be a casus belli - an act of war.



    But to be fair to the Americans, they may justify their belligerent behavior, flagrantly refusing to respect Russia’s sovereignty, on the basis that they do not recognize Crimea to be a part of Russia. Therefore, they do not recognize any violation of the airspace of Russia as having taken place. Rather, they would contend that the American aircraft in question were flying within the sovereign territory of Ukraine, with the permission of the government with the only legitimate authority to grant or refuse such permission, namely the government of Ukraine.

    Nevertheless the Russians have made it clear that they consider Crimea to be a sovereign part of Russia. The Russians have made diplomatic protests over what they see as violation of their territory. The Americans have ignored them. The Russians have therefore shot down - and in one case commandeered and landed - these aircraft making incursions into their sovereign territory.

    An act of war has been committed by America against Russia; and if you accept the American position, an act of war has been committed by Russia against both the Ukraine and the United States. Shots have been fired, and the Americans have lost materiel.

    Note that these are not exchanges of fire through proxies, as happened throughout the Cold War and is happening now through Syria and in the east of Ukraine. No, these are two nuclear-armed powers already in the process of shooting at each other!

    Reunification with Russia has served a beneficial purpose for Crimea and its people, western reporters observed after visiting Sevastopol. They noted the “impressive” work on the 19-km bridge that will link the peninsula with the rest of Russia by 2019.
    Journalists from the US, the UK, Germany, South Korea, Bulgaria, Romania and Iraq have arrived to Crimea on the invitation of Russia’s Foreign Ministry.

    Some of have admitted Crimea’s reunification with Russia did led to some positive developments and even acknowledged that it was really the choice of the Crimean people after they visited the peninsula and spoke to the locals.

    Does this mean a downgrading of Crimea's local government?

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree merging Russia's Southern and Crimean federal districts into an enlarged Southern Federal District led by the former justice minister and former prosecutor general, Vladimir Ustinov, the Kremlin announced on Thursday.

    "Reorganize the Southern Federal District and the Crimean Federal District into the Southern Federal District…Appoint Vladimir Vasilyavich Ustinov as the presidential commissioner to the Southern Federal District," the decree reads, as quoted on the Kremlin's website.

    The president instructed the Russian government to implement the decree while submitting corresponding legislation amendments to the State Duma.

    Ustinov has been serving as the presidential commissioner in the Southern Federal District since 2008.

    It will have no effect on local government. The Presidential Commissioner is the liaison between the local governments in the Federal District and the President (cabinet level minister if you wish). At first there was a separate Commissioner for Crimea and Sevastopol only. This makes perfect sense.

    There is more to the inclusion of Sevastopol and Krimu in to the district, much more.

    For starters, S. Menyailo, the appointed 'governor', read mayor, of Sevastopol was removed Thursday, this event producing dancing in the streets. Menyailo was 'promoted'....and sent to Siberia. Talk about a fall from grace, removed from what is in essence a heavenly little city and sent east to the snows. The subtle implications of this removal are not lost on others who may or may not be considering or actually doing what Menyailo and his henchmen were doing.

    Second, many of the sanctions imposed by us/eu/nazo were specifically against The Autonomous Republic of Krimea and The Federal City of Sevastopol. Since both are now part of the Southern District and technically no longer exist as before does this mean the aforementioned sanctions will have to be rewritten or do they now encompass the entire Southern District? The next days will be interesting in that respect.

    @ Auslander,

    I have a question for you about the situation on tourism in Crimea, (since you're actually from Crimea, you have better knowledge about the situation there). A few weeks ago I read news about Russians going back to resorts in Turkey after the travel ban was lifted, now this made me wonder, are beaches in Turkey really better (climate, water temp, whiter sands etc.) than in Russia (Crimea + Kuban)? Or is it because of the infrastructure and/or inadequate advertising (modifiable causes) why Russians are not choosing to visit domestic beaches instead?

    Can someone else answer instead? Are Turkish resorts/beaches superior in quality to the ones found in Russia? Why are Russians still flocking there?

    So Natalya Poklonskaya is no longer the Crimea’s chief prosecutor as she has been elected a Russian Federation Duma deputy. Still a cutie though.

    Always fun to watch that project grow. TPP on the bypass just south of Inkerman is roaring along also. Completion date is now late this year according to 'them'.

    The bridge, there are plans afoot for the opening day ceremonies but at this time nothing is engraved in stone.

    Could somebody update us regarding new powerplants that should be build in Crimea?

    IIRC there were several solar plants and thermal (gas?) power plants that were in plans or their constructons were even started.
    Are any of them finished? Or being close to be finnished?

    Now i found this article>
    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-ukraine-crisis-crimea-power-idUSKBN17T0N4

    They claim that Russia have problems to finish them as they have no turbines ( Simens turbines were planed but due sanctions Simens refused to deliver them).

    Never trust an article from Reuters and especially one from several 'anonymous' sources, that's a sure indication it's a lie. Of course one could also check out who generated it and that will tell you the truth. Orcland is where it came from.

    I know the top dogs in this berg personally and in '14 no one was even discussing TPP's for Sevastopol and Krimea, the orcs had a lucrative deal to provide Krim and this berg with electric power as they've always done, paid in advance 3 months at a time plus the orcs got Krimea gas for a pittance. When the orcs blew down the power lines in late fall of '15, they did it the day after the three months advance payment had been paid and verified. What a surprise.

    As for 'power outages' in Krim or Sevastopol, don't happen since the power lines from Krasnodar Krai went operative not long after the orcs cut off the electric.

    Sanctions? Sure, they hurt.....us little people. You want a new S Klasse? Go to your Benz dealer and you will have it that day, exact colour and appointments you want, anywhere in Russia. TPP at Inkerman is building rapidly. Turbines? I can guaranty you they are either installed or ready to be bolted to their foundations as I type. As an aside, right across the road from the new TPP is a vast and new in summer '15 electrical grid power system that serves all of Sevastopol. Ensconced there are 6 massive diesel generators which automatically handle any overload of power demands for the entire Sevastopol region. I've never seen more than 3 working at any one time and that happens in July and August when the AC demands peak and in mid winter when the electric heater use goes way up.

    Bottom line, Sevastopol is Russia and everyone is happy to an extreme that the Ukrainians are finally gone. Only fly in the ointment is we have 25 more years of repairs and upgrades to everything to make up for the 25 years of orcs stealing everything here and allowing the entire physical plant to rot to nothing.

    Target of the sanctions is to HURT the people .

    It is not targeting Russia, or Putin, or weather, all of these try to make as bad the life there as possible.

    See Iraq, Serbia , Japan or Germany.

    Target is to kill the civilian population with terror actions (like using nuclear bomb on cities), if not possible then to make they life as miserable as possible.

    No, no, the idea behind sanctions is to put pressure at the same time on State and people. With different kinds of sanctions.

    Till it comes to the point when political opposition gains enough of critical mass via annoyed people to change gov. Gov. that will be far more easier to control or that will yield to all the requests. Thats what happened in Yugoslavia/Serbia.
