Ukraine should surrender now.
The Novorussian army have stated multiple times that they want to allow the nearly 8,000 troops trapped in the cauldron to return home in one piece.
Washington needs to do the humane thing and tell its Ukrainian commanders to raise the white flag.
Unfortunately, knowing how Nuland and the neo-cons operate, this is doubtful…leaving no choice for the forces of Novorussia, but to destroy the abandoned and encircled US/EU backed Ukraine army caught in the Debaltsevo cauldron.
ITAR TASS News Agency reports…
“There was an attempt of a breakthrough near Debaltsevo, which was successfully curbed,” spokesman Eduard Barusin was quoted by the Donetsk news agency as saying.
Barusin said so far at least four similar attempts by major military units have been seen in the area.
On Sunday, DPR’s militias nipped an attempted breakthrough of two convoys with munitions for the Ukrainian troops trapped in Debaltsevo but let vehicles with the wounded leave the area.
Compare this report to an urgent plea from Rada Deputy Taras Pastukh, who is currently participating in the fighting at Debaltsevo:
“Greetings from the still-Ukrainian Debaltsevo. We just repelled an attack on our base camp. Earlier it could barely be reached by artillery, but today enemy infantry had arrived. The National Guard had left the city, thus leaving us open to attack. All blocking positions report constant shelling and tank attacks. We never received any reinforcement. It went to the CTO zone, but never went where it was needed.”
“We are being abandoned here, while at the same time others are simply running away,” he added.
He also asked the country’s leaders for support.
“I ask for your help. Tell everyone you can about the critical situation here. Maybe someone got the idea I was excessively panicked, because the President had said that he had everything under control.
Unfortunately, I was only wrong about the time, because I could not believe they would come at us with such force, while we continued to hope to abide by the Minsk Agreement and discuss whether a martial law is needed,” noted the deputy.
In his words, “this is genuine betrayal of the country by the entire military command, including our so-called ‘president’.”
Russia Insider reports that even The Los Angeles Times is relaying rebel claims that 8,000-10,000 Ukrainian troops are now trapped and can’t escape without surrendering.
Western main stream media reporting on something bad happening to the Ukraine putsch government and its US/EU backed army…that’s a first, and bad sign for Porky, Yats and Co.
