As I understand it, isn't there a standing agreement between Russian nd the Ukrine to enable the keeping of 25k troops there? Maybe the west led horror at Russias actions are jus again an extension of the Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, etc etc etc meddlings orchestrated by the US and Co. If Putin does what he says he will do, i.e., maintain a peace keping presence so a fair referendum can be held, is this such a bad thing??
