Security Cams Show Moment Russians Take Crimean Government Building

Russia is thumbing her nose at President Obama.

Russia is thumbing her nose at President Obama.

Security camera footage uploaded by Reuters show the moment armed men seized a government building in the Crimean city of Simferopol.

On Saturday, Russian armed forces occupied Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula, after the Russian Parliament authorized President Vladimir Putin to use military force in order to control the chaos in the Ukraine.

On Friday, President Barack Obama used strong language to warn Russia against invading Ukrainian territory, saying: “We are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the Russian Federation inside of Ukraine … Any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing, which is not in the interests of Ukraine, Russia or Europe. It would represent a profound interference in matters that must be determined by the Ukrainian people.

“It would be a clear violation of Russia’s commitment to respect the independence and sovereignty and borders of Ukraine, and of international laws.”

The authorization given by the Russian parliament was based on a threat to the lives of Russian citizens and soldiers stationed in Crimea and other parts of Ukraine, essentially thumbing Russia’s nose at the American president.

According to the Reuters, heavily armed soldiers had tightened their grip on the Crimean capital, Simferopol on Thursday night, even before Putin’s statement in Moscow. The Russians surrounded government buildings, as can be sen in the video below, shuttered the airport, and blocked city streets.

  11. Cary Cowell says:

    When you’ve been putting missiles in Cuba for the last 5 years that will burn our nation to cinders Putin can just smile .

    They didn’t waste any time

  14. Chana Parnes says:

    We need him to be stronger

  15. Obama and his 'red lines'. We are warning Russia not to interfere in the activities of sovereign nations???? Anyone heard of the Arab Spring, Libya, Syria, PA/Israel? That's all we do. Going back to Korea and Vietnam. Impose our sick perversions of "democracy" on anyone we feel is weaker than us. Iraq, TWICE, Afganistan, Bosnia/Serbia, Sudan; does it stop? AAAND I don't mean 'us' and 'we' "The People". The warmongering, money-making weasels we entrusted to protect OUR BORDERS. Check that one off?? NOPE, too busy.

  16. You're right Sharon. It's their distraction tactics to keep us occupied while they take our country away from us.

  17. Carolin Knox says:

    Did anyone expect any different? After the “red line” in Syria, the world knows Obama is weak, and full of bs.

  18. Luis Aravena says:

    WE INVADED IRAK BY LYING, NO ONE SPOKE, NO EVEN THE SO CALL NEWSCASTERS, NOW EVERYONE CRY FAULT. ONLY IN AMERICA, THE LAND OF TAKEN LIBERTIES AND CONTROL. AND SO MANY PHONIES, GIVE ME A BREAK.

  19. It is to naive to tell, think that Russia will allow anyone takes over the naval base in Crimea. Nonsens. There must be a War to make guys like McCain and others just a bit wise.

  20. Sad but truth, the US NATO puppet propaganda is simply strong. Lucky we have the Internet to may at least write a diverse attitude. I live in a state, Croatia, in former Yugslavia and very well know how the scenario story and strategy of lies and torpedoing was used.
    The problem for Janukovich government was in illegal traffic of druggs for McCain chain, and rocket feul for Hamas.
