While in Hungary, closing more deals (isolation???), Putin calls the US/NATO weapons bluff (via RT)…
“According to our data, weapons are already being supplied [to Kiev],” the Russian leader said at a press conference following his meeting with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. “This is not surprising. I am convinced that whoever is supplying the weapons, the number of victims may grow, but the outcome will not change. The vast majority of soldiers serving in the Ukrainian army have no motivation to participate in an internecine conflict away from home, while the Donbass militia have every reason to defend their families.”
And that last statement makes all the difference, and explains exactly why the Novorussian army is winning and why the US/EU backed Ukraine army is losing…badly. They are the invaders.
The war thirsty west refuses to listen to the one leader who knows what he’s saying, and speaks from a position of sense and logic…
Putin urged the Ukrainian government “not to prevent the soldiers in the Debaltsevo cauldron from surrendering, or at least not punish those who simply want to save their lives.”
Up to 5,000 Ukrainian troops, now surrounded in the Debaltsevo cauldron, face annihilation, as they have been abandoned by their Ukrainian commanders…who take orders from their US commanders…who could care less about the lives of these young men.
More Putin truths that western MSM loves to hate (via RT)…
“Our mission is to save the lives of those caught in the cauldron, and to make sure that the situation does not inflame relations between Kiev and the rebels further,” Putin said.
Nonetheless, Putin repeatedly emphasized that the situation was “more or less quiet”elsewhere on the front, and said that he was“more of an optimist than a pessimist” about the implementation of the Minsk agreement.
Putin believes that last week’s negotiations between Germany, France, Ukraine and Russia laid out a long-term framework for the resolution of the conflict.See Also
“It’s extremely important that the authorities in Kiev have agreed to carry out a deep constitutional reform, to satisfy a desire for self-rule in certain regions – whether that reform is called decentralization, autonomization or federalization. This is the deeper meaning of the Minsk accords.”
For such a crazy, unstable dictator that the western puppet publications portray him to be, he sure seems to be the only leader willing to speak the truth in order to save the lives of Slavic people that the likes of Obama and Nuland could give a crap about.
