“pro-Russian rebels in east Ukraine had shot down a military helicopter, most likely killing all nine on board. It was the most serious breach of a temporary truce agreed in talks between government and rebels less than 24 hours earlier.”

A military helicopter usage during a ceasefire is the most serious breach of a temporary truce agreed in talks between government and rebels.

I doubt Mr Putin will abandon ethnic Russians to Kiev’s malreatment. I also doubt that if there is an attack on Russia itself even if it is claimed by Kiev to be an accident that Putin can turn a blind eye and not strike back. Stay tuned as things are very volatile and the approach by Kiev is bound to lead to confrontation and disaster. They will be surprised by being abandoned by their western instigators the moment things get too hot.
