The world has taken yet another ominous turn today as President Putin has ordered 10 Military Divisions to 'Full Alert' status as the American backed puppet-state of Georgia has begun a series of highly provocative actions designed to inflame Russia, and as a number of FSB reports state are in retaliation for the Kremlins revocation of oil rights to a number of Western oil giants.
The Speaker of the Russian Federation Council, Sergey Mironov, has further echoed the urgency of this crisis by stating that the actions of Georgia are leading to war.
Russia has also called for an urgent meeting of the United Nations Security Council, and as we can read as reported by the Times On Line News Service, and which says: "Russia told an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council last night that the arrest in Georgia of five Russian officers and other actions were unacceptable and dangerous provocations, and asked members to demand that the country exercise restraint and refrain from actions that could threaten peace in the region."
As Russian peacekeepers in the Georgian breakaway region of South Ossetia are now reporting that Georgian combat aircraft are now over flying the region, President Putin has ordered the evacuation of Russian diplomatic families from Georgia and recalled the Russian Ambassador.
In a move that will surely provoke even more anger in the Western Nations against Russia, the Kremlin is calling for the Shell oil giant to pay penalties of over $50 billion, and as we can read as reported by Independent News Service,
"Shell is facing growing uncertainty over the future of its Russian Sakhalin-2 oil and gas project after a senior official yesterday called for construction work to be halted over "barbaric" damage to the environment which he claimed it would cost $50bn (£27bn) to put right.
The Kremlin has also set its sights on BP's Russian venture, TNK-BP, with a director of the state-controlled Gazprom saying the energy giant was interested in buying BP's local partners out."
As Georgian police still surround Russian Military Headquarters some reports speculate that President Putin will soon order Russian Troops to begin rescue efforts.
As more is known on these events we will report them.
