KIEV (Reuters) - Vitaly Klitschko, a senior Ukrainian politician and likely presidential candidate, called on Saturday for a "general mobilization" following Russian parliament's decision to approve deploying troops in Ukraine's Crimea region.

"Klitschko calls for a declaration on a general mobilization," the retired boxing champion's political party UDAR (Punch) said, making clear he favored a military mobilization.

Klitschko wants to embroil the US, NATO and Europe in a conflict, possible war which is the making of a very small number of people, like Klitschko.
I say no. I do not support these people or their political agenda, nor am I all that interested in their problems which they can keep to themselves, within their own borders and without calling on my government to bail them out.
