    Antiwar Protests Spreading in Ukraine as Government Wages All-Out War in the Southeast
    August 3 2014

    The protests are paralleled by a rise in Ukraine army desertions and refusals of men and women to heed conscription orders.
    Army in trouble

    Exact numbers of army desertions are not known and are the subject of considerable debate and counter-debate. This website report, for example, publishes a purported Ukraine army report saying that close to 3,500 soldiers deserted in the third week of July and that 1,600 soldiers died and 4,700 were wounded in that same time. Sources in Russia say the documents it cites are not authentic.

    This will become a never ending story; a kind of "ebola" on the battlefield; even the media spends little time on it. There will never be a "winner" in this case; like a lot of the "wars" lately.

    More than 400 Ukrainian troops have been allowed to cross into Russia after requesting sanctuary. It’s the largest, but not the first, case of desertion into Russia by Ukrainian soldiers involved in Kiev’s military crackdown in the east of the country.

    Our ‘Enemies’ in Ukraine Speak

    By Eric Zuesse

    Global Research, August 22, 2014

    America’s ‘news’ media do not let the victims of Ukraine’s civil war — the people who are dying and being driven out from the southeastern regions of that country by the new Ukrainian Government — speak, and tell their story.

    This dispute will linger on; the focus is right now on Iraq; since this Ukraine debacle continues, Obama promised money and weapons so as always these elements are part of the "backpocket" money for the industry here and certain "figures" who get rich from the hand-outs. The US wil never learn.

    Russian NGOs demand investigation of massacres near Ukraine's Donetsk

    September 24,
    Many of the victims are said to have been shot in the head at point-blank range

    MOSCOW, September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian non-governmental organizations are demanding a comprehensive investigation of the mass graves containing bodies of civilians near Donetsk. Local militias found the graves on September 23. Many of the victims are said to have been shot in the head at point-blank range. Just two days ago that territory had been under the control of Kiev’s forces. Now it will be explored most thoroughly. Militias say they have discovered other graves, too, which will remain unexcavated for the time being.

    Today on the news. (I was watching Aljazeera America - which I like very much) and at the ticker on the bottom of the screen.... it noted that 2 drones have been sent to the Ukraine to watch over the fighting in the east. I'm sure that Russia will love this like a delivery of high quality cookies.
    I expect these drones being shot down will be a priority for the Russian backed rebels. They don't want facts or information getting out. If you want to know what's going on.......... read Pravda.
