The reports that Russia has 'invaded' 'Ukraine' were repeated for many months and were just lies from the Obama Administration and their agents at NATO, and from the Ukrainian Government that Obama had installed in February. But, now, finally, Russia actually has sent regular Russian conscript soldiers and military equipment into the formerly Ukrainian areas of the former Ukraine's southeast, where, for months, the Obama-installed Ukrainian Government has been bombing and otherwise mass-murdering the residents, and destroying and outright stealing their property.

Russia is simply lying about their military operation against the continued reign, in that resistant region, of the Obama-installed Ukrainian Government, a government that's widely hated there (and especially in Crimea, where the residents never wanted to be ruled from Kiev), and which region had voted overwhelmingly for the President, Viktor Yanukovych, whom Obama overthrew, which is the reason why Obama needs to get rid of these people now in order for his coup in Ukraine to be able to last beyond the current rulers there, whose only 'legitimacy' in their current posts is Obama's having installed some of them, and the rest of them having been elected in an 'election' that was held only in the regions of Ukraine that had voted against Yanukovych in 2010, but which Ukrainian national regime nonetheless claims the sovereign right to continue ruling over the people whom it's now bombing and robbing, trying to exterminate and to expel the rest of them into Russia.

A public debate on whether Putin is right to be doing this, in response to what Obama has been doing for months (and why he is doing it) in Ukraine, would be constructive. However, continued lying, both by the Obama regime, and by the Putin regime, will not be any more constructive in the future, than it has been in the past.
