    Dmitry Medvedev
    ✔ ‎@MedvedevRussiaE Results of the Dutch referendum on the EU-Ukraine association agreement indicate Europeans' opinion of the Ukrainian political system

    With a total vote participation of 36% the anti European groups only got 61%...bulk of the Dutch simply did not vote.

    So I am not sure this Russian PM is telling the complete truth which is normal for him.....

    Russian troops 'could have landed on Lithuanian coast' the Lithuania Tribune,
    LRT Thursday, April 7, 2016

    MP Artūras Paulauskas, chairman of the parliamentary National Security and Defence Committee, suggested in an interview that Russian forces could have landed on the Lithuanian coast of the Curonian Spit during military exercise.
    So has Russian now effectively practiced a naval force landing on the beaches of a NATO member??????

    So if so why is it not being talked about by anyone....is this the reason for the US heavy armor BCT going to the Baltics?

    This is a strange allegation and I note 'could have landed'. Perhaps the alleged site is close to the Russian territory that makes up half of this spit of sand, 400m wide. A map helps:


    Methinks it is not well populated and only signs have been found. Yet again a Russian navigation error; not this happens to other nations. See:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curonian_Spit

    AND not a single comment from any western leader including Obama, Merkel and Hollande AND absolutely no MSM articles on the serious fighting that is underway.....

    BUT if we accept the Russian MoDs word that their bombings in Syria were highly accurate and hit no civilians then their Navy made no mistake on where they landed...definitely on the wrong side of the border.....

    Multiple reports of heavy Russian assault on Avdiivka, but no independent confirmation. Reports of use of RF Spetsnaz troops and artillery.

    The UAF is now involved in a full fledged countering of a strong Russian ground offensive being fought also with Russian troops and artillery YET the entire western MSM says nothing nor do the leaders of the West especially Obama.....nothing absolutely nothing..it is almost like he wants this to be kept forever under the rug until he leaves office.......BUT remember he and Kerry used the word "incursion" instead of "invasion" thus one would have thought the Russian troops were on "vacation" because "incursion" infers that they will leave...WHICH they have not after two years now.

    Russian Ponzi scheme is about to finally collapse...no wonder Putin created a National Guard under his personal command......126 bank licenses revoked and 26 alone in this month and now this.....AND he is fighting a two front war....

    Vedomosti writes that the government will use Russian's pensions to pay off VEB's debts.
    http://www.vedomosti.ru/economics/ar...yat-dolgi-veba …

    AND the Russian oligarchs just keep on shoveling in more money at the expense of the Russian civil society.....
