Putin Recalls Ambassador from US – Sends Russian Troops to Ukraine


As of Saturday morning, the Russian Parliament has asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to recall Moscow’s Ambassador from the United States. This comes as Putin has been given authority by the Russian Parliament to use military force in response to government overthrow in Ukraine.

In granting that authority, the Russian Parliament stated that threats to the lives of Russian citizens and soldiers stationed in Crimea made the situation one where Russia must act. Meantime, as of Saturday, Russian armed forces have now seized control of Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula.

As we have reported, Ukraine is fractured between the more pro-western opposition forces who have taken control of Kiev and ousted Ukraine’s President and the pro-Russian areas in eastern Ukraine near Donestk and Kharkiv, where violence has been breaking out.
