Editor’s note: Trump or at least Tillerson, now confirmed as Secretary of State, should have announced something. This attack clearly violates the Minsk accords. This is one area where we hoped Trump would be pro-active, rather than penning executive orders tearing down America’s already shredded constitution. Give him today and if nothing comes out of the White House or State on this, consider it a “yuuuge fail.” The clock is ticking.
Pro-Kiev forces deployed more heavy military equipment and made two fresh offensive attempts against DPR forces positions at the Adveevka industrial area, but were pushed to retreat, suffering casualties. Both sides are claiming heavy death tolls.
The Poroshenko regime urgently needs to attract the attention of foreign players to obtain their assistance amid the ongoing political and economic crisis in Ukraine. Another goal is to disrupt possible US-Russian rapprochement, escalating the situation in Europe.
Mainstream media assists the regime, pushing an idea of humanitarian crisis in Kiev-controlled areas and blaming DPR forces for violations of the Minsk agreement.
Once again, the Kiev regime violates humanitarian and moral norms to achieve its own political goals.
