Belarus dictator claims unrest in his country being caused by US supported Fifth Columns.....

Most dangerous part here is that he claims the militia camps are inside #Ukraine, #Poland (and Belarus).

Ukraine has beefed up security patrols on the Belarus common border...because of this subtle threat...

From Russian propaganda media outlet TASS....

FSB saw direct far reaching threat to Russian national security interest in 2008 joint Ukraine-NATO naval exercise.
https://meduza.io/news/2017/03/21/by...u-v-2008-godu#

In 2008 Patrushev as head of FSB gave full help 2 Crimean instigators who derailed Ukraine-NATO joint naval exercise

As late as 2005, 2 years after 2003 Orange Revolution, FSB started fully subsidising Ukraine opposition.

Default Meantime in The Crimea

A curious first-hand BBC News report on a visit to the Crimea. Ignore the opening photo of the Kerch to Crimea bridge, it was clearly taken sometime ago:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-39329284
