Ukraine Lieutenant Colonel In Charge Of Crimea Unit Defects To Russia, Takes Soldiers With Him
by Tyler Durden
Mere days ahead of Crimea’s referendum to join Russia (or not) and following reports of shots fired between Russian and Ukrainian forces, the Ukraine Defense Ministry reports (via Facebook):
*UKRAINE LIEUTENANT COLONEL DEFECTS TO RUSSIAN FORCES: MINISTRY
*UKRAINE OFFICER IN CHARGE OF CRIMEA UNIT DEFECTS: UKR MINISTRY
*OFFICER CONVINCES ‘SEVERAL’ SOLDIERS TO DEFECT: DEF MINISTRY
It would appear Crimea is annexing itself as this comes just one week after the head of Ukraine’s Navy defected.
