Interview with Joaquin Flores by Morris108
This interview was made almost ten hours before pro-Russian and anti-Junta people of east Ukraine rose up across the region, storming government buildings and starting the process for a referendum to ultimately rejoin with Russia. In the interview, Mr. Flores describes the reasons for secession and processes that will take place. Rather than seeing a Russian military operation, it is explained that the events last month in Crimea would serve as a template for the events that he predicts will occur in the rest of eastern Ukraine. Mr. Flores has consistently predicted that because Russia has far too many preferable ‘Soft Power’ options to use in Ukraine, that military intervention would only be a last resort, and only then in order to secure new positions already attained, through purely defensive maneuvers, through the use of the Color Revolution tactic by Russia.
