Russia has no business interfering with Ukraine politics and ethnic disputes or else poses a significant undesirable response from the international community. NATO is already reacting militarily cautiously watching Russia's next move. Learn from the past and you'll see where this incursions leads to and Putin is treading on wrong dangerous grounds.

These provinces of eastern Ukraine are primarily Russian people and should be allowed to rejoin Russia. The United States is constantly butting into other countries affairs.

With all due respect but Mr. Kerry is confusing,at least.On ona hand he thinks Russian troops moving on their national territory is "worrisome",on the other hand USA troops in Eastern Europe or Black Sea is "appropriate".It is this sort of clumsy and offensive double standards that make the USA politics dubious.In fact this Kerry(and the embaressing Victoria Nuland) should go.
