NATO General: Kiev already lost the battle in Ukraine
Link not working, so you have to copy/paste it, clear the space after the first h
Military wise Kiev already lost the conflict. That`s what a high ranking general from the NATO told the German weekly Der Spiegel.
According to the NATO General (who wanted to remain anonymous) it`s best for the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to get his "troops alive out of
the grip of the Russians."
The Ukrainian Army has got increasingly more cornered last week by an offensive by pro-Russian rebels. For instance the soldiers had to leave Airport
Lugansk. Also in parts of the South-East government troops are being pushed in the defense. The rebels now control the city Novoazovsk and are are
threatening the important port city of Mariupol.
The general is in particular worried about the new front in the South near Mariupol. This feeds the fears that the Separatists are trying to establish
a land corridor between Russia and Crimea, the Ukrainian peninsula witch has been annexed by Russia in March. If this happens, Ukraine has lost it`s
control over his own East-border totally, according to the general.
Since the rebels have launched their counter-offensive, they have already taken nearly 700 Ukrainian soldiers captive. In the past 24 hours fifteen
Ukrainian soldiers were killed, Reuters reports.
Over 1 million people in Ukraine have so far left their homes for fear of the violence. 814,000 of them are in Russia, at least 260,000 people are in
Ukraine adrift. The total number of refugees still in Ukraine the last 3 weeks has nearly doubled, as announced by the UN refugee agency today.
According to the UNHCR, more people are fleeing every day and a new mass exodus can not be ruled out.
The current flow of refugees coming mainly from Donetsk region and Lugansk region.
'Kiev undermines peace'
The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said today that the request by Ukraine to join NATO member undermines efforts to end the war.
According to Lavrov the request came just after Kiev Ukrainian and Russian leaders had gathered in Minsk to search for a way out of the crisis. "The
peace camp tried, and still tries to launch, political negotiations in which all fundamental issues for Ukrainians can be discussed. But in Kiev the
"war-scum" take steps which undermine these steps," according to Lavrov on a press-meeting.
According to Lavrov the most important thing now is "to bring some sense into the war-scum in Kiev" and for a huge part only the United states can do
That`s why the West has been crying for a week about a so called invasion, puppet-government Kiev has lost.
The Separatists had been planning this whole offensive for months. They seems to have lured a great part of the Ukrainian Army into their territory
(they have been giving up territory), so they could encircle them later on. Kiev and their NATO advisers have been caught with their pants down.
Of course the long standing US wish to have a Missile Defense System at the border of Russia still needed to be realized, so lots of propaganda in
the MSM the last week. Europe was in general against the Missile Defense System because it was seen as an act of aggression towards Russia. They now
seem to have succeeded anyway, with "everyone crying" they are scared now.
