Mohammed Morsi was removed from office in Egypt by the Egyptian military due to his tyrannical and deadly regime which is the doctrine of the Muslim Brotherhood, of which he is a charter member. Only recently, Saudi Arabia has in addition to Egypt declared the Muslim Brotherhood to be a foreign terror organization. In addition to the Muslim Brotherhood, Saudi also declared Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic State of Iraq and al Nusra as has Bahrain and the UAE. It must be noted that Turkey and Qatar have refused to follow suit.
While Vladimir Putin is moving to Federalize Crimea and Ukraine, the Baltic States are not getting any support from NATO as Article 5 (an attack on one is an attack on others) is but a quiet whisper. The United States has an agreement with Ukraine titled the Budapest Memorandum. This is a handshake that the United States will come to the aid of Ukraine in exchange for Ukraine giving up their nuclear weapons which they did, gave them up to Russia.

Russia has refused, yet there was some troop movement where some take this as a sign to calm tensions. It needs to be known however, such is not the case.
