Poroshenko’s call to Putin ploy to buy time for blitzkrieg: Pundit

Press TV has conducted an interview with Jim W. Dean, Chief Editor at Veteran’s Today, from Atlanta, about a call made by Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin for talks over East Ukraine.
The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.
Press TV: The Vienna Declaration took place roughly one month ago. How many times, in numbers I think it’s three or four times now, either ceasefires and peace plans and this being the latest 14-point peace plan. Do you they want this to end or not – what does it look like to you?
Dean: We’ve concluded that it’s a fraud.
We’ve got people on the ground now and Poroshenko is just stalling for time. Obviously his Western handlers have told him to buy time, to give us time to build up military.
We have sources in the armaments business there and we’ve been told that there is a 24-hour-a-day frenzy to fix any refurbished tanks, to finish anything that can shoot; unserviceable aircraft are being made ready.
Money is pouring in, obviously from outside, parts and talent to build up the Ukrainian army to have as much shooting power as possible.
Certainly Russia has no plans to invade unless Kiev starts to slaughter its own people.
So, while he’s talking about making peace, which he has these caveats like yes we’ll make we’ll have a ceasefire and then you have to turn over all of your weapons, we’ll allow you to leave the country so that then you’re totally defenseless if we decide to send the army in.
That’s what he calls a ceasefire?
So what we have here, the West is buying time until we have enough military power where they feel they can do like a 48-hour Blitzkrieg and just take over the Republics, arrest everybody and just shut the thing down. That’s what we’re looking at here.
Press TV: We’re that to happen what would Russia’s reaction be?
Dean: Russia has said their red line is that if certain numbers, like in Ossetia, Russian citizens are killed that that would be their red line. And they haven’t gone back to that, but they did mention that and they might, but they have to do so while the West cannot claim that they were invading the country.
