Good info on the other fronts as well. The lack of support of the younger generation will be the undoing of the pro Russian rebels.

And it seems to be what we are seeing now. The younger generation looks at things differently than those who are older, and it seems they aren't as gung ho to be part of Russia as many of the older generation. It is a very different world we live in now.

Different world...right. Let's try more hatred and twisted one.

The difference between 40 years ago and now, is that Ukraine people hate Russia and it's people. Now more than ever before. I wonder why's that.

And don't get me started about nowdays younger "men" if they can be called that way...

Rebel forces unravel as Ukraine military cuts off key stronghold

Donetsk (Ukraine) (AFP) - Pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine suffered dramatic setbacks Thursday as top military chiefs quit and Ukraine's forces pummelled their strongholds, cutting off a key rebel-held city from the Russian border.

Kiev's advance came as a massive Russian "humanitarian" convoy parked up close to the frontier, with doubts still swirling over whether the trucks would be allowed to cross.

The separatist leadership showed signs of unravelling following four months of fighting that have left more than 2,000 dead and many residents in the region without power or running water, and with dwindling food supplies.

The rebels said their main military chief, Igor Strelkov, had resigned while the rebel commander in the second-biggest insurgent stronghold of Lugansk, Valery Bolotov, told Russian television he was "temporarily" stepping down because of earlier injuries.

The announcements came after Ukraine's military said it had completely surrounded Lugansk, cutting all links to the border with Russia, which Kiev believes has been supplying the insurgents with weapons.
