This thread is intended to be an update thread on any new events coming out of Ukraine since the ceasefire began. (15 min ago)
So far, there seems to have been some shelling in a couple cities just before the ceasefire. I don't see this lasting long, but who knows.

Ukrainian president Poroshenko already made a speech just as the ceasefire started. I don't speak Ukrainian or Russian, so all I've got is hearsay from twitter feeds. If anyone knows the language and wants to post updates, please do..

Here is a live feed from Ukraine, yes it's Ukrainian T.V. so watch at your own discretion. I have no idea how much longer the feed will be up, it's the same channel that aired Porshenko's speech.



Please feel free to post updates by sources from both sides. I would hope updates would be posted, rather than bickering about Juntas and Nazi's etc. I'm know I'm dreaming here, but I have to try...

I've read similar things on twitter as well. I think if this one is broken, things will escalate beyond anything we've seen from the region so far.

So far though, things seem to be calm less than an hour into it..




#Luhansk residents are reporting that all is quiet in the city. #Ukraine #ceasefire





#BREAKING: It's quiet around #Debaltseve. #Ukraine #ceasefire


Not seeing much word on Donetsk yet, I'm sure the twitter feeds will light up if/when the situation changes.

We have to give it at least 10. Rumor has it that if there is no still peace after 10 hours, then Poroshenko will declare Martial Law.
I can't confirm that yet however from an actual news source. Just twitter posts and blogs.

This doesn`t promise much good...

Zakharchenko: Ukraine has betrayed its troops in the Debaltsevo cauldron



Please note that there is not a single word about Debaltsevo in the Minsk agreements. This means that Ukraine simply betrayed the 5 thousand people in the Debaltsevo cauldron. I can say the following, we will stop fire across the entire territory of Donetsk People's Republic, except for internal areas. Internal areas means Debaltsevo.

he will declare martial law in the whole ukraine, not just in those regions, if the ceasefire stops. at least that's what right sector's facebook profile claims, i didn't bother to check their source but i guess it's real.

what i've failed to find on their facebook profile though (hard to translate everything, many posts include text in images and i don't speak ukrainian), but what i've read somewhere recently, is the fact that right sector claims they're not bound by the ceasefire agreement and that they will continue fighting.

if that's the case, it's only a matter of time until things will go south.

It could be a card that Putin may decide to play if the fighting doesn't stop .I would expect that then Kiev will have the prof that Russia has finally invaded . I suspect that it will happen further to the west then the line that would have been agreed upon at Minst .

If true, that that's the match that would light the whole thing up..

It comes down to a few crazies who want to see all hell break lose. Sounds about right.

yeah. and poroshenko knew it will happen very well, they take orders from noone.

of course that's good for him, no?
regroup - wait for right sector to strike - wait for separatists to defend themselves - blame putin.

Right Sector has and is a huge pain in the behind for Ukraine. They act like they are helping Ukraine,but all they are helping is themselves. These are the worst thugs that Ukraine can come up with,and they think nothing of attacking people.They were the ones that set fire in Odessa to the trade building burning those people alive. Now they harass the families that are trying to get justice.

I heard in a video Right Sector declaring somewhere in `14 that the plan was to first win the war against the Eastern Ukrainians, after that take control of the Ukraine and kick the US puppets out of the Ukraine.

This was announced today at a briefing the night in the press center of Donetsk news agency said the deputy commander of the Ministry of Defense Corps DNR Edward Basurin.

If it fails there is not much the west can do.

USA and EU are powerless.


War is not a option for the west.


Ukraine is at the mercy of Russia.

It should have joined NATO or kept its nukes.


Best thing we can do is place NATO troops in poland and the baltic states.

Putin is not stupid, he wont cross that line any more than we will cross that line in to Russias terratory.


MAD pretty much creates a firm red line on both sides. Not a obama red line but a nuclear red line.

Putin wont be steam rolling over Europe.

Europe and the USA wont be landing troops in Russia.

Nukes prevent that.

Ukraine just gets left in the middle.

Its not right

Its not fair


But the world is not fair.

Sucks to be ukraine.
