Kiev’s Defence Ministry has some explaining to do to their American sugar daddies, following their loss of the Donetsk Airport and blistering defeat in their latest offensive against Novorussia.
“This week, a delegation from the US Army Command, headed by Commander of US Army Europe, Lt. Gen [Frederick Ben] Hodges, will arrive in Ukraine,” Vladislav Seleznyov, spokesman for Ukraine’s General Staff of Armed Forces, said at a media briefing in Kiev on Monday.
The spokesman also said that Ukraine will take part in the NATO Military Committee conference on January 20-22.
The get-together will be dedicated to the issues of military cooperation between Ukraine and NATO as well as plans to reform the Ukrainian Armed Forces and the evaluation of the situation in south-eastern Ukraine, he said.
Previously, the Society of Assistance to Defense of Ukraine announced that it has already began training military specialists in line with NATO programs.
“At our military centers, about 100 people per week are being prepared in line with the accelerated NATO weekly program in military professions such as gunner, machine gunner and others,” Yury Chizhmar, the Society’s head, said, as cited by TASS news agency.
The visit by high ranking American command entails much more than discussing “military cooperation” and NATO requirements. This about American military brass coming to town to give the junta it’s next marching orders.
Those orders could include anything from sending more canon fodder Ukrainian men to the front lines, a small scale false flag bomb attack, or even a massive, MH17 style operation.
Whatever US military officials have in mind, you can be sure that Russia and Putin will be blamed.
The Fort Russ blog explains…
To prevent a rapid and catastrophic defeat and collapse of Kiev, and to try and to finally get something back USA and the junta need an excruciating provocation, in comparison with which the Boeing will be child’s play.
This provocation can happen anywhere, but the best place for it is Kiev – most noticeable (from Kiev there is a chance to spread it all over Ukraine). I am afraid that those who fear the bombing of the capital of Ukraine, in case of approaching front line, don’t know what they should fear in reality.
There are things, in comparison with which the artillery fire can seem like manna from heaven, and the shelling of Donetsk, although it sounds terrible – “new year’s fireworks”.
If the junta will have enough time and opportunities for the organization of its new provocation, we will understand what it means “the living will envy the dead”. One hope is that for this demo version of the Third Reich as usual, something is not going to pan out. But one should hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
