According to scattered reports, some 150 000 Ukrainians have sought refuge in Russia in the past couple of weeks. (EDIT: http://lenta.ru/news/2014/03/01/fms/ ) The Crimean Tatars have reportedly sided with the pro-Russian majority in Crimea and have received moral support from the Republic of Tatarstan. Also, the Right Sector leadership in Ukraine has called on the Caucasus jihadists to help them against Russia. That's basically the nail in the coffin for them credibility wise. Openly calling on Umarov and his internationally wanted terrorist gang (that are wanted as AQ terrorists by the US as well), hit your head much this morning? Good going.
