US President Barack Obama warned Russia that an eventual Russian military  intervention will be costly.

He said he was deeply concerned by reports of Russian military movements inside the country.

Ukraine's acting president has accused Russia of deploying troops to the Ukrainian region of Crimea and trying to provoke Kiev into "armed conflict".

Crimea's pro-Moscow prime minister has asked Russian authorities for help in maintaining peace in the region.

"I appeal to the president of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, to provide assistance in ensuring peace and tranquillity on the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea," Serhiy Aksyonov said in a statement.
Aksyonov, who was appointed by the Crimean parliament on Thursday, also said he was taking control of Crimea's interior ministry, armed forces, fleet and border guards "on a temporary basis".

Meanwhile, there were reports that all communications in Crimea and between the region and the rest of Ukraine have been cut off and Russia has has seized control of the airports of Simferopol and Sevastopol. According to the reports at the airports were landing Russian military transport planes, which were deploying armoured vehicles and soldiers. 

The reports prompted the Ukraine acting defence minister to say that the country's army was on high alert.

"Russkis are all drunken buffoons"----- ;-)---I like it; "drunken buffoon", it's about me, thanks !!! But to extend this definition on the whole people? Utmost disputable.
And quite unexpectedly the author of "Russkis are all..." managed to text something really truthful: "Russia Today" only deals in Truth": not ONLY, may be, but RT tries to show not the desirable, not the "correct", but the Real picture.
And how to miss "the world sees that "today" in Russia is how Europe was 200 years ago"!---;-)--- how not to thank the author for his 200 year old "masterpiece", for his "message" from the past in which that "author" continues to live...

Russia should provide trade and financial assistance to help the people of the Republic of Crimea.

The rest of the Ukraine is in facist hands and they are heading for economic destruction.

Let them destroy the Ukraine, it will teach them a lesson for allowing facists take control.

And of course, everyone knows that "Russia Today" only deals in Truth (ie the Commie kid's comic Pravda). It's lucky that Russkis are all drunken buffoons or they might be embarrassed that the world sees that "today" in Russia is how Europe was 200 years ago...

Dear Novinite, while Mr.Obama "warns Russia against EVENTUAL...military intervention" (btw, "those Russians" dare to be absolutely indifferent to/unfrightened by the above terrible warning :-), the ARMED MEN from Kiev have tried to seize - not Eventually, but Really - the Crimean Interior Ministry.....But their attempt to restore the "Correct Picture of the World Order" failed. Yes, in Maidan this unlawful scum succeded, but in Crimea it failed:
