I suppose we will find out soon enough if their leaks are authentic, or not.
When the OSCE is supplying the monitors how does the US prohibit them from reporting on violations?
Can you explain why the Russian OSCE ambassador keeps blocking a vote for OSCE monitors to be deployed along the ENTIRE border instead of just the 2 locations they are restrict6ed to now? Please explain why rebels prohibit OSCE monitors into certain areas shortly before hostilities start and wont allow them in until their hostilities are done with?
Under the UN charter Ukraine has every right to defend itself from a foreign military attack.

USA suppresses the facts of the violation of the Minsk agreements by Kiev
At the checkpoint at the entrance of the village of Berezove (government-controlled, 35km south-west of Donetsk), the SMM was denied passage.
The SMM was initially turned back at the first government-controlled checkpoint on the road from Donetsk to Kurakhove but was able to pass through the checkpoint 30 minutes later.
On several occasions, Ukrainian Armed Forces at checkpoints stopped SMM patrols to inquire about the nationalities of patrol members.
At a checkpoint four kilometers west of Hranitne, the SMM was asked to disclose the nationalities of the patrol team. The SMM was allowed to pass through the checkpoint after a 25-minute delay. At other checkpoints, SMM patrols were able to pass after shorter delays.
In Kharkiv region, on 4 June, when arriving in Vovchansk, the SMM was stopped for approximately ten minutes at a Ukrainian Armed Forces check point which has been in place since at least May 2014. The soldiers registered the names of the SMM monitors and asked about their citizenship. This was the first time that the SMM monitors have been asked about their citizenship at a checkpoint in the Kharkiv area.
Despite claims that heavy weapons have been withdrawn, the SMM continued to observe the presence and movement of heavy weapons in places proscribed by Minsk, including by its UAV. In government-controlled areas, SMM patrols observed two T-64 main battle tanks (MBT) and SMM UAVs observed 6 MBTs. In “DPR”-controlled areas, SMM UAVs observed one artillery piece in Telmanove but was subject to jamming while flying over Dzerzhinske (“DPR”-controlled, 30km east of Mariupol). SMM UAVs observed defensive positions, military vehicles and shelling marks on both sides of the contact line in multiple locations.
This is still not proof that the leaks themselves are authentic, but it is absolute proof that the Minsk agreements have been completely ignored and the Kiev regime is shelling civilian areas.
SMM UAVs observed defensive positions, military vehicles and shelling marks on both sides of the contact line in multiple locations.

As you should recall, the Berkut were the FSB trained Ukrainian security service whose members were involved in perpetrating violence against Maidan protesters. Many of them fled to Russia where they continue to fight against the legally elected government. They are not hackers, they a propagandists. I will prepare a dedicated thread once I have access to a real computer. (I am posting from a tablet.)
