Poroshenko was facing a coup in Kiev when he returned from the talks as most of the hoodlums there want war as the best way to suck in more money from the West and use us (our pocketbooks) as cannon fodder for the Rooskies, in addition to their own people.
With all the Jewish leadership who also hold Israeli passports there is more than a little whiff of revenge from Israel for Moscow supporting Syria when the Zios thought they were going to be able to finish Assad off with proxy troops and the US and Gulf States footing the bill.
Poroshenko broke the latest agreement to make political concessions at home by stating the militia leaders would not be included in the “general amnesty”, obviously a violation. And the nationalist parties said they would not be bound by the agreement and would continue fighting. You just can’t make this stuff up.
There was a huge fight with the Ukies’ military who screwed themselves by denying that the Debaltsevo pocket was surrounded, so no provisions were made for their escape. So now with the ceasefire, the lines have them still surrounded.
The Ukies have been fighting for two days to break out but are running low on ammo. The militias have them as hostages now. Donetsk has already said that if Kiev breaks the ceasefire it will eliminate the Debaltsevo pocket and then take Mariupol, and then liberate Kharkiv which has had the Kiev boot on it and is ready to fight.
That is a pretty tall order. The G-7 said it was ready to take sanctions action against any violator, but which we know does not include Kiev.
And the US who remained at arm’s length in this said they would hold Putin’s feet to the fire if the agreement failed…again, with the unspoken free pass for Kiev.
If this takes place, that Kiev breaks the truce and the West pours the blame on Russia, we may have to activate the phone commando blitz earlier than I have planned. This would be the perfect time to tell “them” that we are tired of all the lies and are going onto the offensive ourselves.
I will be posting updates as they come in, displayed in chronological order to the timeline as it is easier to follow, rather than the backward format. I will stay on this until 1 am EST time and pick it back up in the morning. Vittoria is going to cover the Russian language sources for us all. By midnight tomorrow we will know where we are in this thing.
Here is the best detail map. Save it to your favorite photo viewer so you can blow it up. Vittoria has translated the cities named so far in the current fighting into English.
