Russia’s Interdiction of ISIS-Turkey Oil Trade and Attacks on Turkmen jihadi militants Poses Risk of Enlargement of Syrian Conflict

The increasing velocity of events in Syria indicates that the conflict may be ready to spill over into a larger conflagration and direct conflict between the forces of the AZ hegemon and the Resistance thereto. A couple of apparently un-related events have rapidly coalesced into armed conflict between an NATO member state and Russia, the consequences of which are yet to be revealed, but unlikely to be anything but more fuel on the fires of the not only the Syrian conflict but the war between the AZ empire and Russia.

Report from Crimea by Auslander (The situation in Krimea and Sevastopol is serious)

Auslander posted this sitrep in our comment section. I have reposted it here for all to read. (Webmaster)
The situation in Krimea and Sevastopol is serious.
The power coming to Krimea was actually Russian electric, ‘transshipped’ to Krimea via uke power system, at great cost I might add. Included in this formal agreement and written contract was Russia supplying the ukes with substantially more electric than was ‘shipped’ to Krimea. Part of the payment for the transport fees was the high quality coal found only in Donbas within ukeland. Uke heating and electric generating plants are designed for specifically this coal and nothing else. The coal was shipped from Novorossiya to Rostov, then shipped north and west where it entered ukeland.
