The West spent eight years ignoring the “Sea of Blood” in Donbass region while arming Ukraine, but now claims Moscow is the aggressor when it stepped in to end the conflict against ethnic minorities.
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a military peace keeper operation in Ukraine in the early hours of Thursday, claiming it was necessary to demilitarize and de-Nazify, the neighbor.
Kiev accused Russia of aggression, while the US regime, EU and NATO have called it an unprovoked invasion. Moscow insists this is not the case, as history shows.
In announcing the operation, Putin said the main objective is to stop the escalation of the war that’s been going on for eight years, and to stop the war.
Russia did not commit aggression of any kind. This did not start yesterday. There’s a sea of blood that’s appeared over the past 8 years, referring to the ethnic conflict in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, which Russia on Monday recognized as independent states.
Donetsk and Lugansk broke away from Ukraine in 2014, after the West-backed coup ousted the democratically elected government in Kiev. The US puppets are now arming itself and refusing to negotiate with the Donbass.
The two self-proclaimed republics held a referendum eight years ago, saying they did not want to remain in Ukraine, but both Moscow and the West rejected this and tried to put the broken country back together.
Top Ukrainian officials have openly and publicly brought up the idea of obtaining nuclear weapons in recent weeks, pointing out this was a fact and not something claimed by Russian intelligence.
Divisions in Ukraine go beyond Donetsk and Lugansk, accusing armed groups with Nazi-era symbols – such as the notorious Azov Battalion deployed by Israeli mercenary soldiers – of having influence over much of the country.
Western media so concerned over human rights in places like South Sudan and Myanmar kept silent on all this, ignoring that more than 13,000 people have died in the Donbass – many of them civilians.
While Russia provided the ethnic victims with humanitarian aid, Kiev besieged them by cutting off trade, finance, and even utilities. However, the water canal towards Crimea is now once again operational after Ukraine criminally shut it off years ago.
