' Putin lurks but until the IMF says no to Ukraine'..........
You may have put your finger on it there nh !
If / when Ukraine fails to pay Russia for gas said to have been received, Putin may decide that this is sufficient justification for rolling the tanks.
It's kind of damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Pressures on the USD
"Two pressures are building on the US dollar. One pressure comes from the Federal Reserve’s declining ability to rig the price of gold.....
The other pressure arises from the Obama regime’s foolish threats of sanctions on Russia. Other countries are no longer willing to tolerate Washington’s abuse of the world dollar standard."

"Russia.... announcing..... that its hydrocarbon trade will in the future be carried out in rubles and local currencies of its trading partners – no longer in dollars – see Voice of Russia" April 8
“During his visit to Duisburg, Chinese President Xi Jinping made a master stroke of economic diplomacy that runs directly counter to the Washington neo-conservative faction’s effort to bring a new confrontation between NATO and Russia.” (press TV, April 6, 2014)
Chinese President Xi Jinping“ proposed that Germany and China cooperate on building a new “economic Silk Road” linking China and Europe. The implications for economic growth across Eurasia are staggering.”
"In addition, the BRICS are preparing to launch a new currency – composed by a basket of their local currencies – to be used for international trading"

Not looking better:Uniformed men occupy Donetsk police HQ
DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) -- Men in the uniforms of Ukraine's now-defunct riot police on Saturday occupied police headquarters in Donetsk, the eastern city that is one of the flashpoints of a wave of pro-Russia protests, hours after armed men seized local police headquarters in Slovyansk, a city about 90 kilometers (55 miles) away.
The unrest in Donetsk and Slovyansk were the latest shows of spiraling anger in eastern Ukraine, which has a large Russian-speaking population and was also the support base for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president who was ousted in February after months of protests in the capital, Kiev. Ethnic Russians in Ukraine's east widely allege that the authorities who took over after Yanukovych's fall will suppress them.
Witnesses said the men who entered the police building in Donetsk were wearing the uniforms of the Berkut, the feared riot police squad that was disbanded in February after Yanukovych's ouster. Berkut officers' violent dispersal of a demonstration in Kiev in November set off vast protests in the capital that culminated in bloodshed in February when more than 100 people died in sniper fire; the acting government says the snipers were police.
It was not immediately clear if the men who occupied the Donetsk police building had made any demands.

America’s war-like nature
In a sad commentary on America’s war-like nature, President Carter points out:
The rest of the world, almost unanimously, looks at America as the No. 1 warmonger. That we revert to armed conflict almost at the drop of a hat — and quite often it’s not only desired by the leaders of our country, but it’s also supported by the people of America.
Indeed, continuous war is a feature – not a bug – of U.S. policy. (As a patriotic American who was born in the U.S. and lived here my whole life, I am sad that so many Americans still fall for the myths of “American exceptionalism” and “world’s policeman”.)

Armed men seize police department in east Ukraine: minister
KIEV Sat Apr 12, 2014 3:51am EDT
(Reuters) - Armed men have seized a police department in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slaviansk, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said on Saturday, the latest public building to be taken over in the east as Pro-Russian protesters stand off against Kiev.
"Armed men in camouflage uniforms seized the police department in Slaviansk. The response will be very tough because there is a difference between protesters and terrorists," Avakov wrote on his page on Facebook.
A local police spokesman told Reuters the men had not made any demands, but did not give any details on their identity. Slaviansk is in Ukraine's Donetsk region, about 150 km from the border with Russia.
