Posted on 05/23/2014 1:30:05 PM PDT by UMCRevMom@aol.com
Brothers and sisters, according to the results of the May 23.
The bad: 1. "volunteer battalion was ambushed near the village of Kharkiv, Donetsk region.
The terrorists were armed to the teeth, have at their disposal a BTR. Most of the fighters managed to escape the ambush, some remained in the environment. Later the leader of the battalion commander told Bezler terrorists "Donbass" murder of captured fighters Semenchenko.
In the morning we tried to do our best to the boys, who were hours-long battle, came to help. We pull everyone they could. But nothing is achieved. I have not heard a single word intelligible explanations why guys "merged".
If this is not treason, I did not know what betrayal.
We realized that the crowd of our great generals in the highest ranks of the disliked "Donbass" for his independence. Generaly consider uncontrollable.
I agree with the logic of generals in a single operation, all forces and means should be subject to a single leadership and a unified concept . But in this case , when there is a single guide . In ATO we just do not see it .
But we see that a handful of "unmanaged" guys volunteers operate more efficiently than our famous " strategists " to get on the general's stripes and having subordinate troops .
We , a group of "IP" , certainly not put an end to this case. Too much blood shed for our guys, and too often it turns out that this is nobody's personal guilt. It does not happen.
2. the head of a terrorist organization, "people's Republic" in Lugansk. Bolotov promised attacks at the polls. In that connection, he called on the people of the region do not go to the polls.
However, according to Bolotov attacks will suit National Guard. Like, to then blame it on terrorists.
At this Kremlin sixes, recently arrived from Russia after the briefing in the Kremlin , not enough brains to explain simple fact: why would Kiev want attacks to disrupt elections , if just getting a legitimate president is the main objective today?
At the same time , the statement Bolotov means that he and his accomplices are ready to kill as much as you want and anyone anybody for the sake of their criminal goals.
3. Today, the Russian armed forces general staff said Russian troops are discharged from the Ukrainian border. But this process will be completed no earlier than June 8. What prevents removing their tanks before, the Russian aggressors do not explain.
This morning we recorded decreases in the number of Russian group on 3-4 thousand people (compared to May 8). This is a drop in the bucket.
This means that the presidential elections in Ukraine will be held in the same mode, under the threat of a Russian invasion. Expect that it will be possible to release our troops from a line of defense along the eastern borders and to strengthen their security forces for election in the Donbass region.
The good: 1. In the Russian Federation with respect to the outcome of the presidential election in Ukraine, will cooperate with authorities, formed after the elections.
Clearly, this is all a game. On the one hand, Russian troops on the border, on the other hand, the willingness to recognize the elections. It looks like the Kremlin more plays for the West than is committed to dialogue with Kiev.
But these glimpses of sound mind from the mouth of those who only yesterday expounding the Tsarist DELIRIUM is already something.
2 . Today in the gymnasium № 5 . Lesia Ukrainka in Sevastopol holiday took the last class. Graduating students and their teachers came to school in embroidered shirts in protest against the occupation of the peninsula by Russia.
This is a lesson in courage from the kids and teachers that would be useful and instructive for many of our military leaders. 3. M.Sokol Russian Minister of Transport said that the power of the Crimean ports cannot talk about their large scale application and development.
The true causes, he certainly did not elaborate. Namely, that the Crimean ports were seriously focused on the flow of goods from Turkey, as well as from other countries of the region. With the occupationnow, . Russia is not able to provide the loading ports in the occupied peninsula. Bottom line results-closure of ports as budget-making action in the region and thousands of unemployed.
Good in this process, of course, a little bit, because ordinary people suffer in Crimea. But it is one of hundreds of reasons for Ukraine to begin their work on ARC reclaim. Work as worked for many years Russia-explain, persuade, and eventually hold a brilliant special operations.
The difference is that Russia stole someone else's [territory. We have to reclaim this [Crimea}.
who are the terrorists again?
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way..."
Wait, that might have been another report.
I do not have all information. But, this may help.
There are multiple terrorists groups:
Some of the groups I have heard of are: alcoholic city thugs, Pro-Russian separatists, some Chechnan fighters that were present during Crimea invasion, & mercenaries from Russia promises of farms, homes, as well as money.

Twitter reports coming in now saying Donetsk airport is either being taken, or has been taken by the rebels.
Tweet from BBC’s Will Vernon:
Following reports of takeover by militants, #Donetsk airport staff member tells BBC of commotion outside, but no one in terminal or gunfire.
Just today, the Kiev election commission announced they were closing the voting places in 5 districts, and moving them to the airport, which was under Kiev control.
BREAKING Donetsk airport taken by self-defence forces. Airport operating normally. Vostok battalion division near. All is calm.
BREAKING Donetsk airport taken by two truckloads of self defence forces. Dont know what that means for election commission
FROM Forbes- Six reasons Putin may have lost....
Burning up the internet is the purported order of Colonel Strelkov, dated May 12. At the very end, he orders a plan for the escape of his special forces to the Russian border, there to be aided by Russian intelligence forces. Strelkovs order captures the moment better than any other image.
Colonel Strelkovs Moscow apartment awaits him, unless Ukrainian security forces capture him first and put him on trial for murder. Putin is also enough of a student of Stalin to understand that he will need scapegoats. He will claim it was these out-of-control idiots who made such a mess of things. I do not know if Strelkov has more to fear from Putin, or from the Ukrainians..............
I missed this! Thank you fro this article :)
