    If you mean a threat to the bases as "hostile", there is and would never be a hostile Ukraine government.

      The goal of the neo-liberals is precisely the formation of a Ukrainian government hostile to Russia, perhaps even a member of NATO.

        I prefer to move from the abstraction to the concrete: is there a threat to Russian bases in Crimea?  The answer is no.  

        Now, if you are just using the bases as a weak excuse to have a government that is nicey nice to Russia, well, you've got the Russian foreign policy.

      current revolution is becasue the elected government didn't go along with the demands of the Euromaiden movement to distance itself from Russia and draw closer to the EU. Once the insurgents won, they wasted no time in outlawing the Russian language. The Euromaiden movement, and hence its revolution and revolutionary government are hostile and were from day one.

      That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
