  2. I don’t see why Ukraine poses any resistance what so ever. Just more excuses for more violence and deaths, in a war they cannot absolutely win. Just sit at the table and work out a solution.

    • You don’t see why Ukraine tries protect its own borders? And you blame Ukraine for the violence? You think Putin wants conversation?

      • Yes I don’t see why and how UA is going to protect its borders if Russia decides to attack. Sit on the table and ask what he wants and negotiate a solution. It’s a battle UA cannot win, so just save the lives by not posing resistance and negotiate. Also by non violence UA does not give Russians a pretext for real bigger military intervention to “save Russian citizens”.
        So what does he want? Negotiate.

      • What borders?!!!!!! This is pure BS and war-mongering propaganda, very dangerous and utterly irresponsible fictionalizing on the part of the people who took power in Kiev in 2014.

  4. In an interview with Ukrainian Espesso TV, Ukrainian military expert Major Aleksander Taran confirmed what General Muzenko head of the Ukrainian Armed Forces had to say on the subject.

    During a briefing with General Muzenko he announced that “To date, we have only the involvement of some members of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and Russian citizens that are part of illegal armed groups involved in the fighting. We are not fighting with the regular Russian Army. We have enough forces and means in order to inflict a final defeat even with illegal armed formation present. “- he said.

    And yes, of course, I am a paid Putin’s troll. Hahahahahahaha!
