Moscow has told Ukraine’s Western backers to stop providing the troubled state with weapons and instead to try and deescalate the situation in Donbass. The foreign ministry added that Russian officials don’t trust Kiev’s “mental sanity.”

Kiev has gone unpunished for the war crimes, which caused the deaths of thousands of civilians in the region, but are ignored by the international community, “as if completely invisible.”

The Donbass conflict has been ongoing since 2014 in the east of Ukraine. Self-declared republics in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions currently control large swaths of land and regard themselves as independent of Kiev.

While Russia does not recognize these breakaway territories, Ukraine accuses the Kremlin of supporting them to defend themselves against military incursions.

In September 2014, freedom fighters signed a peace deal with the junta in Ukraine, known as the Minsk Protocol. In recent weeks, Kiev has suggested that this agreement should be ignored, removed, or replaced.

In recent weeks, with tensions rising over military build-ups on both sides of the Russia-Ukraine frontier, worries have arisen over the conflict potentially becoming more violent.

Some press coverage in particular has suggested the possibility that war is around the corner. Instead of appealing to Kiev for calm, Russia looked to their partners in the West, urging them to keep the situation under control and suggesting that they stop funneling weapons and ammunition into the country.

Russia is not interested in fomenting civil war in Donbass and will do everything possible to protect its inhabitants and ensure peace in its long-suffering land.

The West is preparing for another conflict with Russia, but now not in the Middle East, but in Europe?

NATO really has become an terrorist organization and it started to be more obvious from their 1999 attack and aggression on Yugoslavia. NATO is NOT an defensive organization it is an highly aggressive, war hungry and destructive organization, which provokes conflicts and wars. They destroy everyone beyond their borders. They do not care for lives, cultures and different civilizations. They never did appreciate a very friendly and naive move from mr. Gorbachov to build an peaceful world.

People should remember pre-conditions for Minsk II. NATO’s foreign legion was attempting to cut Donbass area in half and encircle city of Donetsk.

They had concentrated a lot of troops in town of Debaltseve, a forward position located deep between Dontesk and Lugansk.

But Donbass militia managed to fight and close passage to Debaltseve and created the famous Debaltseve cauldron.

Kiev’s handlers had to surrender and accept Minsk II to save few remaining mercenaries and advisors caught in that cauldron.

The goal of the Biden administration is to turn Ukraine into the next Afghanistan as it was to the Soviet Union. Biden will endlessly arm Ukrainian rebels, sit back, relax, and drink a few martinis off from the shore of America while watching Russians and Ukrainians kill each other by the tens of thousands

This is my prediction for how the situation will develop. The people you are dealing with have no real geopolitical objectives other than personal vindictiveness, deception, and the desire to inflict maximum economic and political damage.
