Tensions mount as the World stand as one against the Russian Bear

Barack Obama has ordered a freezing of US assets and visa restrictions on those involved in Russia’s military intervention in Crimea, as Britain’s David Cameron warned President Vladimir Putin

“In Britain’s interests” he says..How about the Ukrainians Mr Eton Boy?

Barack Obama has ordered a freezing of US assets and visa restrictions on those involved in Russia’s military intervention in Crimea, as Britain’s David Cameron warned President Vladimir Putin “it cannot be business as usual”. Mr Obama signed an executive order aimed at punishing Russians and Ukrainians responsible for “threatening the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine”. The visa ban does not apply to the Russian President, a US official said. The White House’s rebuke came as the European Union also ramped up the pressure on Russia and President Vladimir Putin.

Member states agreed to suspend negotiations on a more liberal visa regime for Russians, stop work on a comprehensive new agreement on relations between Russia and the EU and to pull out of all preparations for the G8 summit in Sochi in June. The European Commission has also been tasked to work on additional measures including travel bans and asset freezes. British Prime Minister David Cameron, who is at the Brussels summit, unveiled the details of the action and said Europe needed “to send a very clear message to the Russian government that what has happened is unacceptable and should have consequences”. He said: “The situation in Ukraine remains highly precarious – the slightest miscalculation can see it spiral out of control.

“If Russia takes further steps the statement issued today makes very clear there will be far-reaching consequences. ”It cannot be business as usual with Russia.” Mr Cameron said world leaders needed to find a way to “diffuse” and “de-escalate” the situation. ”We know from history that turning a blind eye when nations are trampled over and their independence trashed – that stores up far greater problems in the long run,” he added.

<p>In Simferopol, the region’s capital, about 50 people rallied outside the parliament waving Russian and Crimean flags. Among the posters they held aloft was one that said “Russia, defend us from genocide”. Gunmen at an improvised checkpoint on Crimea’s regional border with the rest of Ukraine have blocked a group of 40 unarmed military observers from carrying out an inspection mission requested by Ukraine’s government. Interpol is examining a request by Ukrainian authorities to issue a ‘Red Alert’ for the arrest of ousted President Victor Yanukovych. Ukraine’s Paralympic team has threatened to boycott the Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia. The athletes will announce their decision at 9.30am (UK time) on Friday.</p>

Warning Russia by Anglo-American Presidents and ohter EU members is OK. But have anyone in the outside world snooped into the factor - why Crimea wanted to dissociate from Ukraine, that was evident from public referendum conducted in Crimea. Had Crimean dissociation from Ukraine not done in democratic process? What's worth of referendum conducted in the eye of democrates around the world?
