We were talking about the treaty....where in the treaty is Russia allowed to unilaterally occupy Ukrainian territory and take Ukrainian prisoners?
Don't keep bringing up the treaty if you are going to change the subject everytime its provisions are challenged
There is no treaty that I know of anywhere that allows anything like that to happen.
Why would you ask such a silly question?

Thank you for admitting that your constantly referring to the treaty is nothing more than a diversion from the issue of the Russian invasion of Crimea.........

Russia did not invade Crimea in 2014. They provided 16000 troops as allowed by their treaty that permits 25000. They provided those troops in response to the Crimea Prime Minister's request for help in protecting ethnic Russians as well as their Naval Base.

Where in the treaty is Russia allowed to unilaterally occupy Ukrainian territory and take Ukrainian prisoners?

Where in the treaty is the "Prime Minister" of Crimea (part of Ukraine) allowed to overrule Kiev?

Unless you can show me the treaty allows these actions, it remains a large tasty red salted herring.....

Hasn't happened. You should be ashamed of such lies. You can not establish such with any proof, but only the insane ranting of a President unabashedly willing to call the government in Kiev "legitimate."

You're both Maoist liars and supporters of murder.

We need to stay out of this Ukrainian mess. We cannot win in a war with nuclear armed Russia, and Putin is just mad enough to use them.

We do need to stay out. But, I do not agree tht we cannot win a war with Russia provided we actually want to win it. I don't understand what Obama is doing here. We have no reason to get involved. There is no objective that I can see. He seems like a child throwing a tantrum because someone is getting something that he is not getting. And he doesn't even want it!
