The Poroshenko “peace plan” was very unfortunately more like a surrender plan. The Eastern Ukrainians were required to disarm before direct talks with the Ukrainian government. What do you think would be in store for those rebel “terrorists, militants and marauders”, those hated pro-Russian people, those people with Russian roots?

The US could have better advised its puppet. But, we are hell bent on confrontation with Russia, and destruction of EU’s energy relationship with Europe.

Ukraine is a complete economic basket case. If Poroshenko was a Ukrainian patriot, why would he put Ukrainians, and particularly his Eastern Ukrainian citizens, through what they face? To me, he must be bought off.

xcanada2,

Don’t be a hypocrite. “Those people with Russian roots” crossing the border from Russia on BTRs and with rocket launchers? So, Ukrainian citizens should lay under Putin?

Because that’s what the Ukrainian people want and what they elected him to do. The “Eastern Ukrainians” are mostly a fringe group of wannabe warlords backed by Kremlin-supplied mercenaries and weapons. The vast majority of East Ukraine’s population are being held hostage and had their lives destroyed by these thugs. They’re Poroshenko’s #1 responsibility, not the fantasies of a few radicals. The Ukrainian people as a whole want to be free from Kremlin domination and join with the rest of Europe. That’s also what they’d elected Yakunovich to do, but he betrayed them by selling out to Putin. They’re obviously willing to do what it takes to get there – even if it means some suffering along the way. It’s their country and their choice – no matter what Putin says or does. They deserve our admiration. Not many people are brave enough to fight for their freedom, even if it means hardship or the risk of death.

Almost all people in Donetsk and Lugansk are against Ukrainian junta. Local people!!! And because that Ukrainian junta (through monopolized mass media) called them terrorists and separatists.
Modern Ukrainian (USA’s) democracy: hate towards Russians, public suggestion to kill Russians, arresting of political opponents and disliked journalists (at least 4 journalists with other opinion were killed) , beating up them by Nazi groups, burning in Odessa (46-116 participants of peaceful meeting were burned on 2nd of May), bombing usual people in the Eastern regions. If Russians are against such “democracy” that is totalitarianism.
