With a day left until the critical, if widely expected, results from the Crimean referendum are revealed, it is worth recalling the main footnote in last night’s State Department travel alert for Russia: “all U.S. citizens located in or considering travel to the border region, specifically the regions bordering Ukraine in Bryansk, Kursk, Belgorod, Voronezh, and Rostov Oblasts and Krasnodar Krai, should be aware of the potential for escalation of tensions, military clashes (either accidental or intentional).” See, for the purpose of a military provocation, “accidental” will do. It is therefore not surprising to learn that moments ago all major news wire blasted the following headline, quoting the Ukraine ministry of defense:

UKRAINIAN MILITARY REPELS ATTEMPT BY RUSSIAN FORCES TO ENTER REGION ADJACENT TO CRIMEA-UKRAINE’S DEFENCE MINISTRY

So the official line is that the Ukraine repelled a Russian “military force” in a region inside east Ukraine and out of Crimea the day after Russia’s foreign minister Lavrov said Russia has no plans to Invade Ukraine? Call us cynical, but something tells us if Russians wanted to “penetrate” east Ukraine, the would have done so without “being repelled.”
