Incontrovertible evidence that Russian special forces have invaded the Ukraine

April 23rd, 2014 No comments
Asked whether the U.S. assessment is bolstered by other information that is not publicly available, Psaki said, “We’re looking at a fair share of classified and unclassified information,” including the photos, most of which are publicly available on social media.

The photographs include a bearded man whose uniform bears a Russian special forces insignia. He was pictured among armed separatists in Kramatorsk and Slovyansk last week. Another photo shows the same person in Georgia during a 2008 incursion by Russian troops.”  Don’t be fooled. This one man is an army of one and is more dangerous than the hundreds of thousands of US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan in the last decade.
