U.S. Vice President Joe Biden spoke in Brussels, Belgium after meeting with leading European officials. The Vice President clearly expressed his frustration that Russia is covertly trying to redefine the territorial borders much as it did when the old Soviet Union redrew post World War II Europe. Subversion and deception tactics engaged by the Russians has been and will continue to destabilize the Ukrainian government and military and thwart and stabilization in the region. There’s only so much Europe and the United States can do militarily so economic and true grit diplomacy is the only answer to coming to some compromise that will bring some political resolution that may cede more territory to the separatists and Russia yet give a smaller Ukraine PEACE.

Russia's annexation of Crimea last year caught almost everyone off guard. The Russian military disguised its actions, and denied them - but those "little green men" who popped up in the Black Sea peninsula were a textbook case of the Russian practice of military deception - or maskirovka.
