Ukraine Colonel In Charge Of Crimea Unit Defects

Via Bloomberg,

Ukrainian Lt. Colonel Volodymyr Sadovnyk, who was missing earlier today, comes back to his motorized battalion in Crimea’s town of Bakhchisaray to announce he’s defected, Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman for Crimea Vladislav Seleznev says.
cross-posted Comment:
"I said about 100 times that the Ukrainian army will join the Russians against the US puppet regime in Kiev.

The only reason it's not happening fast is those soldiers in Crimea have families in the mainland that fear repression from Kiev. So the game is to FEIGN resistance until safety assurances are met for themselves and their families.
►The above defection was just today... do you think the US is 'getting' it yet????????????

America hasn't faced a country that could actually fight back since Korea.
