Reformatting Ukraine is on the agenda

Latest horrible ceasefire violations in Donbass by the Kiev’s regime are likely intended to demonstrate the “inefficiency” of the OSCE mission to its Western patrons and are evidence of Ukraine’s attempts to circumvent the jurisdiction of the Minsk truce co-brokered by Russia, Germany, and France. Indeed, Minsk-2 is very inconvenient for Poroshenko, because it documents […]

Real targets of Ukrainian missiles and phantom targets of the European sanctions

On Jan. 29 the Council of Europe extended the sanctions against a number of influential people in Russia and the Donbass.

Ukraine’s Government Is Losing Its War. Here Is Why!

On January 27th, Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense headlined “Militants Continue to Suffer Losses,” and reported that four helicopters, and other weapons of the “militants,” were destroyed in battle, but no evidence was given to support the assertion.
