Breaking News Ukraine: Russia Threatens US Astronauts on International Space Station

On a day when Pro-Russia activists seized yet another two Ukrainian government offices in the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin warned, (seen by many as a veiled threat) that if the sanctions affected its rocket-building sector, US astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) might be "exposed". Upping the anti yet again he went onto say, that the United States had "essentially lowered an 'Iron Curtain'" by targeting Russia's high-tech sector and that the Ukraine was under the thumb of the US government.

Meanwhile in the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk, Pro-Russia activists had no problem when armed detachments stormed into both, the prosecutor's office and the regional administration's headquarters. After the invasion an obviously angry and beleaguered interim Ukrainian President, Mr. Olexander Turchynov, criticized local police for their "inaction" and "criminal treachery". Just how much longer Mr.Turchynov will allow Pro-Russian activists to continue in their open aggression in regards the Kiev Government, is not yet known, but may Ukrainians believe that it is just not a matter of Ukrainian military un-preparedness but of the fear that if the Kiev Government are provoked into a full military crackdown, Russia would invade, as asked to do so many times by the militants.
Arsen Avakov

In other news from the area, it would seem the actions of the pro-Russian activists are already having its desired affect, as can be seen by the Ukrainian Interior Ministers Arsen Avakov statement, when he said that “voting in next month's presidential election may not be able to take place in all regions because of the unrest in the country's east,” something which the Pro-Russian activists has wanted from the beginning of the Ukrainian crisis.
