CRIMEA’s NODAL POINT
For the USA and NATO, the main goal and objective of Maidan-2014 was the deployment of 5 military bases in Crimea
“President Bush told Gorbachev and Shevardnadze, the Soviet foreign minister, ‘We don’t want you to do what you did in Hungary in 1956. We don’t want you to do what you did in Czechoslovakia in 1968. Don’t use your army, get it out of Germany,’” Raymond Berkley McGovern quoted Bush Sr.
In the end, the former CIA official said, the parties had agreed that the military would be withdrawn from East Germany and Germany would be reunified but on one key condition. “The U.S. had to promise not to move NATO further than East Germany. That was in 1991,” recalled the founder of the U.S. intelligence veteran organization. With the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact, the military organization of the Soviet bloc countries, the military forces were withdrawn not only from East Germany (the former GDR), but also from Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Poland. Moreover, in 1989, Gorbachev declared the end to the Cold War for the rest of the whole world to hear. How did the United States and NATO respond to that? A few years later, they declared themselves the winner in the Cold War, coined the Cold War Vicory medal, which they could never have won, even theoretically, given the military and economic potential of the USSR. Moreover, taking advantage of the collapse of the USSR, they began to behave not just as winners, at times as an occupation force with respect to the country they allegedly had defeated. Hence is the current conflict between the United States and NATO and Russia: just another soap bulb bursting, and people are asking: What’s going on? The answer is like in a fairy tale: first, it was all Stalin’s fault, then Khrushchev-Brezhnev’s, and now it is Putin’s; with their evergreen innocence claims as if they were the eternal virgins from the Reeperbahn Strasse in Hamburg.
Before the peninsula became part of Russia, not only the U.S. but also NATO as a whole, had views on it. In June 2016, former CIA official Raymond Berkley McGovern, founder of the U.S. intelligence veteran organization, told Regnum news agency* that if Crimea had not joined Russia, NATO military bases would have appeared there. According to him, this story began not even in this decade or the past, but since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
By 2008, 12 countries had become new members of NATO, all of them “east of Germany.
This continued until 2008. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov summoned U.S. Ambassador to the Russian Federation William Joseph Burns and said: “Do you understand what ‘no’ means?” Ambassador Burns said, “Yes”. And Lavrov said, “No means no. We have a red line. Don’t even think about accepting Ukraine and Georgia into NATO,” Lavrov said: “If you try to include Ukraine in NATO, there will most likely be a civil war, there will be all kinds of military clashes. We will have to; we Russians will have to decide whether we have to interfere or not. Militarily,” Sergei Lavrov was quoted as saying by the CIA veteran.
He emphasized that it was important for Russia to ensure that Sevastopol and Crimea did not become part of NATO. “Sometimes Mr. Putin shows a superb sense of humor. Because during those days he held one of the longest press conferences. And he was asked, ‘Why did you decide to reincorporate Crimea,’ and he said, ‘Okay. I was thinking about Sevastopol. And I knew the NATO sailors were great guys. But I wouldn’t want them to give us permission to visit their base in Sevastopol. I’d rather we give them permission to visit our naval base in Sevastopol,” Raymond Berkley McGovern quoted Russian President Vladimir Putin as saying.

2006 Report from the town of Feodosia, Crimea
The logical application of the “Gravitational Law” of the 21st Century newly discovered in our time in Great Britain, aka the ‘Highly Likely’ Law, unequivocally allows us to suggest that in terms of identification of the present-day point of departure of the Collective West opposition to the fact of the existence of Russia, our conclusions to that effect are correct.
“At that time, I was the deputy commandant of the Feodosia border commandant’s office,” recalls public activist Alexander Talipov, — “At the beginning of May 2006, I received information that there were plans to hold NATO exercises in the Feodosia region and that there were plans to create a temporary base, which would gradually become permanent.”
These are the events that took place in the town of Feodosia, Crimea, in June 2006, or in other words, long before 2014, when it is alleged, the main cause and effect developments occurred resulting in the civil war now in progress in Ukraine as well.
This statement is based on the strength of the most convincing evidence provided in the format of footage — from the end of the 9th and the beginning of the 10th minutes of a short 15-minute video-coverage — capturing the completion of an uninvited visit and unwelcomed stay in Feodosia, a quiet resort town in Crimea, of a detachment of the American military personnel, servicemen and their civilian support associates from “PORA,” a Ukrainian nationalist youth organization; they both were accorded absolutely “unwelcoming” treatment by the people of Feodosia, in particular, and the communities of Crimea, in general: all local communities joined their efforts and kicked them out contrary to the will and wishes of the authorities in Kiev: ‘Yankee Go Home’ chanted the crowds when they came to see them off.
On May 27, 2006, under the pretext of a joint U.S.-Ukrainian Sea Breeze-2006 Exercise, the USS Advantage, a cargo vessel with 250 military personnel and equipment onboard, called at the seaport of Feodosia, the Black Sea, so that to commence their works to prepare the KIZILTASH Forward Operating Control Center and make arrangements for the development and upgrades to the Military Personnel Training Field designed to provide for the NATO countries’ military personnel, in the vicinity of Stary Krym, a small town within the jurisdiction of the district of Feodosia, Crimea.
The Feodosia communities took the unwelcomed guests by surprise: they drove in their trucks and blocked the exit road from the Sea Terminal whereas the Stary Krym community members camped out and blocked the access road to the Military Training Field.
In June 2006, the ‘YANKEE GO HOME!’ rhyme sounded in the streets of the towns of Crimea for the first time after many years, a slogan long forgotten in Europe and the world and which used to be highly popular in the second half of the 20th century.

Now, we can only presume that it was in the aftermath of the events unfolding in Feodosia in June 2006, that decisions must have been taken at the highest level of the Collective West so that to use force, and which were implemented in 2014, thus resulting in the Second Maidan when the Ukrainian ultra-nationalists seized power in Kiev, whereas the people of Crimea held their Independence Referendum to secede from Ukraine and rejoined Russia, whereas the people of Donbass in South-Eastern Ukraine rose in rebellion against the Coup D’Etat in Ukraine.
Therefore, it will be, Highly Likely, a correct statement to make that the ongoing Civil War in Ukraine began as a result of the implementation of such decisions made by the U.S. and NATO military (courtesy of President Obama and all his men?).
For the USA and NATO, the main goal and objective of Maidan-2014 was the deployment of 5 military bases in Crimea:
1. A Naval Base facility, Sevastopol. On 5 September 2013, invitations to bid for a Sevastopol school building renovation project for the needs of the US Engineers Corps were posted; the deadline for submission of bids was 21 October 2013; the Donuzlav Southern Naval Base of Ukraine had been considered for the construction of a US Naval Base facility since 1997 (the Sea Breeze-97 Exercise*)
2. The Belbek Airforce Base. The US Airforce had plans to upgrade the Belbek airfield to meet the requirements for the operations of the forward air force group, and namely, the Air Defense fighter and ground support aircraft and air surveillance aircraft wing.
3. The GTS 825 (K-825) Underground Submarine Base Facility in Balaklava, Sevastopol.
The U.S. planned to procure diesel-powered submarines from NATO countries for the needs of the Ukrainian Navy so that to control the Black Sea water zones. It is also Highly Likely that the American and European submarine crews would have been involved in those submarine operations under the flag of Ukraine.
4. The deployment to the “SOTKA” underground facility bunkers of the US anti-ship missile systems to ensure total control of the Black Sea area including the operations of the Black Sea Navy of the Russian Federation.
5. The deep underground anti-nuclear bunker Kiziltash. The U.S. had a plan for their Forward Operating Control Center to be deployed at that facility.
Sea Breeze-97 Exercise
The scenario for exercises: In the aftermath of a major earthquake devastating the Orange Republic, foreign military, i.e. Russia’s Black Sea Navy Forces, intervene to support the rebels in the Cimmerian autonomous province in a mythical ethnic conflict resulting from this natural disaster; the legend implies that the Russian majority aided by a neighboring power (Russia) is seeking to overthrow the government of the Orange Republic. The U.S. and NATO peacekeeping forces are deployed to intervene, deliver humanitarian aid, detain ships that violate the declared embargo regime, and enforce constitutional order in the Cimmerian autonomous province (the ancient name of Crimea).
Aims and objectives of exercises — combating the separatists, conducting police operations, launching amphibious landing in the territory plagued by mass unrest, providing anti-aircraft and anti-boat protection for NATO’s Black Sea convoys delivering humanitarian aid, and the blockade of Crimea. According to the U.S. European Command (EUCOM), the invitations to participate in the Sea Breeze-1997 exercises were sent to the following countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, France, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Moldova, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Ukraine, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The military “will practice ensuring security in a crisis region,” commented a Ukrainian Navy rep. Russia rejected offers to take part in the maneuvers, even as an observer. “Military exercises are a matter of the internal affairs of any country, but we understood perfectly well what was meant by the ‘orange country’ and the ‘mass unrest’ that needed to be quelled,” said Capt. Andrei Grachev, spokesman for the Russian Black Sea Navy. “We have to ask ourselves in whose interest it is to cause an ‘earthquake.’”

What is Ukraine’s long-term plan with Crimea? Shouldn’t they just recognize the Russian sovereignty over Crimea?
There has never been any Ukrainian sovereignty over Crimea. Present-day Ukraine in terms of its frontiers is the product of the Leninist policies of the destruction of the Russian empire. The Ukrainian ultra-nationalism is the product of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Keizer Germany, and the Third Reich Germany wartime policies they were using in their wars against Russia and the USSR. Therefore, the Western and US collective involvement in the Maidan Coup of 2014 is consistent with what we saw in the 1914–1918 and 1941–1945 periods. The paymasters of the Maidan revolution have preferred to ignore the history lessons: both efforts failed dismally. Ukraine’s long-term plan is to rebuild its relations with Russia and request that “AMI GO Home. The Bidens have already been to Ukraine; we know what happened when they went home: “Human blood is not water,” is this the thing they know next to nothing about?
