SouthFront: 29.02.2016 Crisis News

…from SouthFront

Arsen Avakov, the Ukrainian Minister of internal affairs, said on Saturday that Ukraine is preparing a special military unit in a bid to retake Crimea. Kiev is currently training a separate special force within the Ukrainian National Guard.

On Sunday, the Defense Ministry of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) said that the Ukrainian Army has shelled the positions of local militia fighters seven times over the past twenty-four hours. A meeting of the contact group on the settlement of the crisis agreed to introduce a ceasefire regime from January 14th. However, the Donbass militia and the Ukrainian Army continue to accuse each other of breaching the truce.

On February 11th, Ukrainian radicals announced an unlimited campaign to block the transit of Russian trucks through Ukraine. Radicals had been blocking the transit of Russian trucks in four regions – Chernovtsy, Volyn, Lvov and Transcarpathia.

The UN security council has adopted a resolution endorsing the cessation of hostilities between parties in the Syrian conflict, except for terrorist groups. New peace talks might reconvene as soon as March 7th, if the agreement largely holds.

    Sadly, but predictably, the US has used the Minsk II agreements to allow for a build-up of military capability and readiness in the Ukraine. A new war is coming. The US/NATO have no intention of a compromise solution leading to an enduring peace. What they can’t have by guile, they’ll have by force of arms.

    “Arsen Avakov, the Ukrainian Minister of internal affairs, said on Saturday that Ukraine is preparing a special military unit in a bid to retake Crimea.”

    I want what he has been smoking – excuse for Russia to not only crush the invasion, but liberate the Donbass region from the neo-cons as well.
