No, it is not.

China, and a bunch of their allies in South America who have formed a political/economic union, get together and oust the democratically elected president and parliament...

How come, essential part of vast and insistant public manifestations got skipped, playing like these folks of Ukraine did not even took part in forming further course, while somebody somewhere did? Maidan can have own negative sides, but it is no doubt, that people were primary exhibitors of will for changes, as they had too much of wrongs accumulated on state side. They have been very firm at standing in the cold and demonstrating their will, demanding changes.

One of the terms of Ukraine's independance was that they give up the nukes they had left over from the break up of the USSR, but their supposed pay back from that would be protection from NATO if Russia were to invade.

This is not correct. Commitments and warranties were set by the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America.

And now one of the parties has blatantly annexed one chunk of territory, and sets "dispute" arena for several others.

Well, he rather established himself after getting chance of power, than got it because of achievements. Boy, did he stick to that! And, of course, nobody orchestrates corruption and sins better, than KGB does.

There must have be someone smart enough to stick a phone up his ass or something.
You know what I mean. No one runs away, no one throws a paper plane with a message to those mothers waiting in front of the gates, ...

Yes, guys find their ways to sneak information where they are, when possible. As said before, Soldier Mothers committee has collected their data this way. You intentionally skip considering this known source of data, and that shows pretty well what you are after right here. OTOH, if you go to military trainings, and your commandment is taking task of isolating from phones seriously, you will have really hard time to avoid leaving it where demanded to leave, and not passing with it where you are not supposed to. Try sticking a phone up your ass before giving that particular example, besides.

That's my last reply here.

I am off from reading you thoroughly further on, as I see too little traction with reality, as delivered per my perception. As a product of Soviet history period, Baltic countries are stuffed with Russian spoken population, you must be aware. It is anytime Russia wants to pull strings back inventive ways and cause havoc pretty close to that, it achieved in Ukraine. Where, I remember, after Crimea annexing completed, pretty loud urges for South-East were heard: why are you asleep, why you wait, why you don't act. People were living very lightly disturbed lives yet back then, were going to work and back home to family as usual. Until they succeeded urging. I remember pictures of those first blocking posts, low-numbered people of lowest intelligence gathering around them and screaming something they thought, they have to, or were told they have. It was still wasn't full-on civil war with the weapons on the level, only whole countries are armored with. But then there appeared those heavy arms and "separatists" speaking in recognizable Leningrad dialect. And it took off. What government had to do? Fight back, of course - only choice. Speaking about "contemporary economic peace", or such - Ukraine already lost good chunk of its land illegitimate ways, and is fighting back mighty neighbor to not allow further progress of territorial integrity losses. Thus, admit, you are just one nonsense delivering type with a sympathy to Putin, now operating from Germany. That's it.

Have you seen pictures from battlefields? Did you completely miss military in them? Signs of destruction from military activities? Can you differ separatist with weapons and machines from Russian soldier dressed somewhat more loosely as separatist with weapons and machines? All recognition signs are purposefully removed and replaced (white circles, bands on arms, legs), before entering area.

According to the committee of soldier mothers of Russia, their data (about their sons) show 10.000 - 15.000 soldiers being involved, not a 1000. Please, google it.

Do you know? Do all these soldiers miraculously also loose their cell phones?

These, and their documents, are promptly collected and stored in safe yet at Rostov base.

Why you emphasize something unimportant and rather distracting as "gallery dealer and art-manager"? I don't get your reading habits. It is about conversation with the Putin surrounding insider, who presents answers to more interesting aspects of the matter, pretty soundly threading what is happening and what expectations are. Can't get how it turns into "told him everything he knew"

Seriously, did the thousands of soldiers, tanks and other heavy machinery move through underground tunnels over the border, or why is it so hard to find satellite imagery that unambiguously, conclusively proves troop movements?

So, you didn't see no satellite images with troops moving? Or they did not impress you? Are you able in general to envision what those borders are, and surrounding situation is? Where are you lacking tunnels? There are stationary and moving troops on both sides of border. There are activities going on around all the time. There is no fence nor anything to limit moving trough forests or fields, being at some point several kilometers deep in the other country, being met there immediately by those, whom to support you came. Have you looked at the map, that separatists concentrate along the border with Russia? Putin himself explained, when caught, that his troopers "got somewhat lost" (in Ukraine by coincidence). There is desire of Russia to keep military activities as sporadic and atomic, as to prevent from stating that they are indeed involved in war. Did you know, key figures of separatists were actually Russian citizen, some removed by Russia just recently to cleanup that mess, and fled back, of course? If you still did not get, that you are observing principally new kind of hybrid war, what were you observing? You missed Crimea action, for some reason put it into tight other box? Only wait for undeniable proof now? Then mister Putin has got your balls very well, since he is acting much more dispersed, than you can imagine or notice. Or are you only playing fool, actually being one of his plot?

Sorry to be rude, but you talk playful, yet cheap. NATO disbanded, when our countries here have it as only realistic hope to find protection from KGB-legacy politicians, reviving friendships-as-usual? You are at a comfortable distance from that mad creature, most likely you never even got whole sense of that KGB-as-the-core architecture in the past. I see only one good cure for you - being German (supposedly), if you are ashamed of Hitler and heritage of related madness, you may succeed being ashamed of that mister smartass of today.

statements of foreign ministries, etc.

- these are superficial, made up statements, they are not even direct reflections of reality events, they are positions. Russia's official position is lie - so what do you do with that?!

You must be talking about RT, because I don't see pictures of the war zone in any western outlets.

No, based on observations, I treat RT as a shame to the media. If they show "pictures of the war zone", it is only to deliver horror of consequences to your eyes, actually hiding, that it was caused by Russian support to people (with key people being exactly Russian citizen) operating in another sovereign state. I can't judge your selection of western media to check with poor results, but I happen to live in the country, expressing strong support to Ukraine due to own historical lessons, received from the same imperial aggressor. We have no lack of reports, some bias can be observable, but it is not big deal to shave off, while there are also occasional media of those Russian, who feel slightly more, than unquestionable support to the "smartest Russia president ever".

You do know, that it is routine now in Russia to call military for "urgent trainings", transfer them to Rostov bases, change clothing and delete all recognition signs from machines and uniforms, paint white circles on top and have bands on clothing instead (explanation: to mark competing teams), then proceed to "train" into the depth of Ukraine? For, say 3 days or whatever. If you do not yet know, you can search for "soldier mothers", this is now source, that has accumulated plenty of actual information about where their sons are. Or are no longer, in worst sense.

There was amazing piece of primary information afloat recently on subject, if you can translate it well:
http://nvua.net/opinion/gelman...

In short, if to believe literally, goal of Putin clique is to prove to Ukrainian President, that he can't win this secreted war. To make him sit down, and negotiate with those terrorists, that are supplied with arms and all kind of vaguely masqueraded support from Russia. Then they will tell what they want it to be resolved like, what they would be happy with. However, this is crippled plan, as you have KGB professional of neighboring "hyperfriendly" country negotiating with the President of sovereign state. Shocking blatancy is easy recognizable. It is also horrible to observe similarity in the thinking, moving, massive local support of rising Hitler. From now on we are all kidnapped by KGB agent - stability, economies, as you can observe, everything is now challenged.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
