A summary of the good, the bad, and the serpent – field reports from Crimea for March 11
Translated and edited by Voices of Ukraine
Brothers and sisters!
Here is the summary of March 11.
(for summary of the previous day, see
Summary of March 10).
The bad news:
1. Russian occupants in Crimea mounted a solid defense, reinforcing the defense of the land bridge between Crimea and mainland Ukraine. Their number one objective is the referendum. If they do decide to creep further inland, towards Kherson, while simultaneously breaching our eastern border from the southeast – they will only do so after their theft of Crimea is complete. Therefore, tensions probably won’t escalate before March 16th. This isn’t, however, a positive signal – just an indication that the Russians are trying hard to create an impression of legitimacy for their determined efforts to drag the peninsula off to Russia.
