Interesting Tweet from the BBC:
Kiev has so far failed to give any orders to besieged and beleaguered troops at the airbase despite pleading.”
There seems to be no in charge in Kiev to give the orders to get these guys out.
Local commanders are being forced to decide Independently.

(Well, it is what the Sheeple voted for....)
They’re afraid of getting their men killed, it seems.
But that could happen with a local commander. Pooty-Poot ain’t going away.
Not condoning; just an observation.

That fits with what I've been reading of soldiers saying Kiev Government and pretty much everyone else had abandoned them....However this base was given many weeks to comply as did the other 70 who already had left or changed sides. Not sure I buy he didn't get orders.....did he not stay in contact with other Base Commanders and know they were leaving? So somethings real fishy about this commander and IMO he wanted another stand off as he had before.p>
