Summary of the week from voenkor Mag about events in the DNI and LC 21.12.18 - 27.12.18



This week, there was also no offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as on the previous one. Despite the fact that 26 December ended martial law. It ended without any results for Kiev.

So on Monday mortars of all calibres, artillery of 122 and 152 mm and even Tanks. It seemed that a little more would begin, but it worked out, or maybe they waited for us to start answering and that would be recorded by representatives of foreign media? In general, it blew ...

    To be or not to be a war in Ukraine depends on Poroshenko’s rating in the election race. If he remains low, then he will provoke with the use of toxic substances, and begin an attack on the LPR and the DPR. If the rating grows and he is chosen again, he will do it after the election and a bunch of other nasty things for his people. The United States is not interested in changing the already trained to the untrained, although, in fairness, we can say that the entire set of current presidential candidates in Ukraine will be great to succumb to American training. Living in a booth in the courtyard of their western patrons is considered a huge success for them.

    Yes, everyone understands that the war in the Donbass is the only reason that Poroshenko and the company are in power with the approval of the United States.

    Klmpradorsky Dudaev Russia in Donetsk "promised nothing."
    Moreover, it is convinced that the very existence of the DPR and LPR is a historical misunderstanding.
    It cannot be eliminated right away, because reputation losses will be too great. The republics should QUIETLY EXTEND - and “quietly” here is understood in a purely PR sense. Slowly, painfully and extremely humiliating (this is especially important, and this will provide)
    New Russia should die not only as a reality, but also as an idea too.
    Everyone who, in the wake of the mood of 2014, supported the Russian uprising, should be ashamed of their stupidity and memorize forever that Russian uprisings end badly for the Russians themselves. ALWAYS.
    But the cunning planers will not succeed! We will not let this multi-pathway come true!
