You`re right about "accusations," but nothing more as to accusations.
Russia has been training and gave tactical advice, which was clear when Ukrainian army really crumbled late august.
Same as NATO has been doing, so where is the outrage about NATO ?
Russia also probably helped out shortly with some battalions late August when Ukrainian army was doing nothing more as to bombing socially vulnerable
civilians because they couldn`t take Donetsk and Lugansk. After that there was a "truce" agreement to have heavy military equipment being pulled
from both sides to 30km from the front line. Kiev however decided early October not to hold them to the Minsk agreement of pulling back the weapons
and to keep shelling civilians.
So there`s a good change Russia has said, Kiev not keeping themselves to the agreement (which also included, Russia pulling out all heavy military
equipment), we put them also back.
Problem with NATO/Kiev, they have accused Russia countless of times before late Augustus of sending in tanks, etc., which was not true. Russia was
forced to do a quick action late August with ongoing atrocities against the populations of Lugansk and Donetsk.
Putin and Poroshenko had a meeting right before Ukrainian army got smashed in late August, my guess is, Putin warned Poroshenko to cut with useless
attacks on civilians, and when he refused Putin did a quick action.
And if Kiev actual would have upheld to the Minsk agreement we wouldn`t have seen the ongoing attacks on civilians anymore. So I would not be
surprised to see following up actions soon from Russia, because Kiev clearly haven`t been given the order from their Western masters to stop with the
As we have seen many times before, with Kiev not having funding to keep on fighting and then given it to them by the West, with fake presidential
election promises to stop the violence and with the so called fake peace propositions, the West only wants to keep the conflict going on, just as with
Syria when Assad was winning and the CIA stepped in to prevent a defeat for the Syrian rebels.
