Donbass prepares for renewed assault as Ukrainian army masses

Vesti News released a new video showing the preparations the already besieged Donbass region in Ukraine is making for Poroshenko and the NATO embedded forces trying to take the area:

Russia One’s evening broadcast indicated that the Russian borders are strongly fortified and ready to face anything Ukraine might throw at it.

The concern here is for a Ukrainian, not a Russian, provocation. This follows from the information in the Kerch Strait incident last Sunday, which detailed that Ukrainian counterintelligence agents directed the sailors on board the Ukrainian ships to not follow proper notification and navigation procedures with regard to the Russian authorities as they entered waters mutually controlled by both Russia and Ukraine.

President Petro Poroshenko authorized the buildup of combat troops along the Donbass frontier earlier this week. The spokesman for DPR, Eduard Basurin, confirms that this is indeed developing along the border.

The question on all our minds is ‘will Russia respond to an all out invasion of Donbass or will Ukraine have to cross the Russian border before Russia reacts? I’m guessing they will need to cross the Russian border.

I probably don’t have to remind you what Russian military doctrine prescribes if enemy forces cross the RF border.

Although in the special case of Ukraine, Mr Putin might take a leaf out of Bismarck’s book. When asked what he would do if the British army landed in North Germany, he replied “I would send the police to arrest them”.

“The Russian account … appears more truthful.”

The understatement of the century … was enough to persuade me not to bother reading past this point.

Sorry to say but President Petro Poroshenko thinks he is the reincarnation of Germany’s Adolf Hitler during the 1930’s and his rise to power. He is doing the same thing Hitler did when he invaded other countries at first. President Petro Poroshenko wants Donbas first then it will be Crimea next, then who will be next after that?
