From #BulldogP2P: War between Russia and Ukraine could spoil the P2P party.

"Is War Between Russia And Ukraine Now Inevitable? The situation in Eastern Ukraine is critical. Russia and Ukraine are on the brink of an open armed conflict."

"On April 1, President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, accused Russia of the increasing presence of armed forces on the borders. He said, “military exercises and possible provocations along the border are traditional Russian games.” He further said that Russia is creating a threatening atmosphere across the border while Ukraine seeks to resume a ceasefire agreement."

"Russian forces are deploying massive amounts of military hardware into #Crimea. One of the largest deployments I've seen in recent memory."
