The government of Ukraine believes its US political support will provide it with protection what ever the Ukrainian military fire into Russia. Now the Russian’s can get a glimpse of their future once Ukraine has joined NATO.

The same case like Palestine with Israel.Eucraine does not estimate their own strength and keep on provoking next door powerful neighbor.
Today’s word situation is very sensitive and no country will involve with the problem of other country extensively.How long Eucraine will run on the back of EU?They must compromise with Russia as EU compromise with Russia with limited sanctions.Long term countries interest is more important than ego.

“carrying in rebel fighters from Russia”

The line of disinformation can be hard to spot. But, it was crossed some time ago. Saying that Russians coming into Ukraine to turn Ukraine into more Russia are ‘rebels’…

Russia will use anything as an excuse to fight Ukraine, How does a convoy of trucks and people come out of Russia with thousand’s of troops on their border? The world needs to clamp down on Moscow with harsh sanctions, not just on a dozen people cripple their fragile economy then let’s see what happens in Ukraine, I bet the rebels go away very quickly. Putin is just a very big bully with these country’s that pulled away from the Soviet Union. And of course the rebels are going to say we didn’t do it but Putin know’s.

Ukrainians are genetic lairs, what else they can say? They decided to protect with snipers and artillery units, now they been shooting inside of Russian territory.

In other news, about 70 (!!!) Ukrainian tanks plus APCs attacked towards Lugansk, the attack was repelled. Rebels only ground attacker “Frogfoot” bombed them after retreat.

This is a full-blown war against their own people.

Hahahappy, 1Piper, babeouf12,& gentalman, the same group of Russian posters.

Reasonable people seek a compromise. Reasonable people overlook differences in the name of peace. Reasonable people find a safe haven for refugees. Reasonable people return to old borders. Reasonable people lower the rhetoric. Reasonable people would stop a convoy of 100 vehicles with ‘volunteers’/provocateurs.

You can see just exactly what the human being is like without the real love of God in their hearts
IT culminates in killing the other person even innocent people ending war.
You can see many religious groups who claim to have God in their hearts yet they harbor the guilty element within their domains and will not openly expose them.
Then there is only one type of person who say leave me alone yet other religions accuse them as being their problem
So they antagonize and kill anything that stands in their way of beliefs.
Ask yourself has government thrown out the teachings and practices of moral laws with their substitute?
And we say we want t follow these teachings
Something is definitely wrong.

And how many Ukrainians have been killed by Russian militia illegally crossing the borders into Ukraine?

Strange, Russian threatens action over a shell they cannot determine from which group it came from, but remains silent on the accounts of armored convoys transporting weapons and more paid mercenaries from Russian to aid the separatists.

It seems that Putin is finally growing disillusioned and weary of US belligerence and intransigence, continually dissing Russian efforts to implement a peaceful solution instead of war.

I have not understood his patience with a nation that is as corrupted as Ukraine, and just as unreasonable.

Let us hope we now get what we were asking for, an angry Russia that will take the actions it should have taken months ago to avoid all the bloodshed.

ALL of this is on the head of the wealthy-controlled US government that sees nothing but profits from the destruction of Ukraine and its people.

You reap what you sow!

Kiev could peacefully secure the integrity of Ukraine by merely entering into negotiations to grant greater political autonomy to the East.

The latter would be a win-win for Ukraine as it balances its ties to Western Europe and to Russia. This could be a new European paradigm that mitigates tensions, and which Kiev can leverage to its long-term economic advantage.

Unfortunately (and typically), military conquest of the ethnic Russians in East Ukraine is what Washington demands given that the end game for the Neocons in the American capital is Russia itself.

Therefore, either Russia intervenes to protect the enthnic Russian populations in East Ukraine, or they are conquered militarily by NATO (i.e. Washington), thus sowing the seeds for a catastrophic future European war.

“Everybody run! Ukrainians are shooting. They have no idea where their shells end up. They don’t know what they are doing”

The last time Ukrainians attempted live fire air defense training, they shot down a Russian TU-134 airliner, dozens on board perished.

But now it looks like a good pretext for Putin to show the Ukro-Nazis who’s the boss. Israel beat the cr@p out of palis for even less (just the fact of shelling, thank God no casualties yet), and deservedly so.

That was an option before the bloodshed started. Now, these people just don’t want anything in common with Ukraine.

The Kiev junta government is trying to spread the violence per their puppet-masters’ demands. A clean Spetsnaz strike on the puppets would end the slaughter of innocent civilians. Take a leaf from the US’s playbook and claim the work was done by internal elements seeking democracy…

It is a big mistake to pull the tail of the Russian bear, the only country that has shown restraint in this dangerous matter. There is no chance that the U.S. would think for even a moment about engaging the Russians militarily; the only countries that the U.S. attacks are Third World nations that lack air power and the ability to defend themselves.

Shell kills a Russian, so what, shells have been killing Russians for months now. According to Russia there is no difference between a Russian in Russia and someone what speaks Russian in Mexico, they are all due the same protection as born and living in Russia Russians.
Got to watch your rhetoric comrades, it can bite you.
But really
One shell, that could have been fired by Ukrainian Ukrainians, Ukrainians that speak Russian, Russians in the Ukraine, and of a half dozen nationalities of Russian Mercenaries now being openly hired for what a paltry $600 a month, boy the economy in Russian controlled lands must really stink if you sell your life for $600 a month, let’s see who else is involved with or been doing their best to create a reason for Russia to invade the Ukraine, oh yeah RUSSIANS in RUSSIA.
finally, lets not forget the hundreds of tanks, APC’s, mortars, rocket artillery, ground to air rockets, ammo and Mercs Russia has shipped in “across the border”. Seems Russia has killed hundreds of Ukrainians with “across the border” action so they don’t really get the right to complain until the numbers even up a bit.

Russia, back off…now.
The entire weight of Western and NATO might will come crashing down on you like never seen.
Your ideals are nothing…no vision of human future. You simply fight anything and everything Western while embracing anyone that’s not Western. Its pathetic.
The West chooses to evolve the human race and destroy dictators and ideals from the middle ages. Things you cant seem to understand in your reclusive, centralized government.
