Putin on Ukraine: Kiev is Running Punitive Military Operation, Not Russia

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said Russia is ready to mediate in the Ukraine crisis and denied Russians killed there have been members of Russian military.

Putin is correct in what he says here, that the coup in Kiev (which put in power a number of anti-Russian neo-Nazis) caused the violence. This circumstance caused the semi-autonomous region of Crimea to break away from the rest of the country, followed by the Russian speaking eastern regions. If open elections had been held from the beginning there would be no ongoing crisis. The agressors are based out of Kiev, with support from Washington neocons.
