The Chechnyans, among others,  will be highly motivated  to wreak havoc.  They are hardened, fearless, skilled fighters who have succeeded in terror acts in the past.  Putin will have Sochi and the surrounding area virtually inaccessible to the non-credentialed.  The winter Olympics require mountains, and that sort of terrain is easier to penetrate, difficult to defend.

Moldova (an impoverished country) lies between the pro Russia area and western leaning Odessa—-another problem.  Russia is heavily vested in having seaport access  on the Black Sea..  Very simplified version, of course, but it seems the way it is playing...so far.

A bird's-eye view of the demonstrations in Ukraine show the vast scale and might of the protests

This extraordinary recent panoramic view shows Independence Square in the heart of Kiev, Ukraine’s capital.

Demonstrators have defied a ban on protests, taken control of the square, stormed City Hall and demanded “revolution.”

{#Ask} Mailbags always did. They have a check box for "what do you want to do if customs gives you any trouble?" One of the options was "Abandon." I always checked that.

Probably for dealing with customs, and I'd be pretty helpless with that.

Does the recipient have a computer or access to one?  Can't you create a unique and new phone number for them via Skype or Google Voice - and have that serve as the contact point for the courier, via voicemail?

No 'puter, no internet access, no phone, and as far as I can tell no cell service either. Pretty remote village.

I need to ship a couple of boxes of books to the Ukraine, but my old standby method (international mailbag) has become prohibitively expensive.

hi Ivan, I too have a soft spot for the Ukraine, having lived in Budapest and visited many many times. I might return to Kiev one last time before I end my European adventure and return back to America....
