US Accuses Russia of 'Outlaw Actions' as Worries Grow Over Escalating Tensions Between Kiev and Moscow

US Accuses Russia of 'Outlaw Actions' as Worries Grow Over Escalating Tensions Between Kiev and Moscow

Jon Queally, staff writer

Tensions between Ukraine and Russia escalated dangerously on Monday as an emergency UN Security Council meeting was held and the two nations exchanged a volley of threats after conflagrations in the Black Sea on Sunday resulted in Russia seizing Ukrainian vessels by force and left outside observers warning that simmering disputes—mixed with unintended consequences and political instability in Ukraine—could spark wider war between the former allied nations.

From the article:

“US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley described Russia’s behavior as ‘outrageous violations’ and condemned what she said were ‘outlaw actions’ by the Kremlin.”

Pot, meet kettle. After Albright and Bolton, Haley’s appointment to this post confirms my suspicions that the chief qualification has become the ability to keep a straight face while spouting such provable hypocritical and ahistorical bullshit. Adlai Stevenson, where are you now when we need you?

Here’s a couple of more informed pieces on the crisis.
