    Civil war in Ukraine

    Pursuant to requests from several members, this thread was created to reflect the changing reality of the situation in eastern Ukraine, and, as a continuation of a discussion that ended here: http://defenceforumindia.com/forum/...russian-military-movement-275.html#post916962

    Edit: Thread title changed again as suggested by @Cadian. @Razor, since bombardment is going on from both the sides (despite the fact that it is mainly the Kiev regime that is killing civilians), we cannot just blame the Kiev regime for bombardment. I think "civil war" is apt.

    The first plane appeared at 11am in Luganskaya, and hit the center of the town. It destroyed the police building, damaged the courthouse and razed two houses to the ground, said the head of the local administration, Vladimir Bilous.

    July 3rd 2014: More than 20 people have been killed in the last 24 hours, including two children, as a result of the shelling by the Ukrainian army in the eastern parts of the country, Russian children’s rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov said, according to RIA Novosti.

    July 4th 2014: Shelling of Kramatorsk has destroyed the building of the last working local newspaper “Technopolis”, RIA Novosti reports.

    The publication claims, that now it will not be able to print its material. “Luckily, there are no victims,” the newspaper said, adding that because of the power outage, no one was at the building at the time of the strike.

    East Ukrainians = Russians ^-^'

    I am surprised by our government's tolerance to this genocide.

    Refugees that are trying to escape from surrounded Slavyansk are shot at by Ukrainian army. About 40'000 - 50'000 civilians are still in the city. No water, electricity and food supplies, constant shelling continues.

    Kramatorsk is almost surrounded too, it is also shelled heavily by rocket artillery. There are about 150'000 civilians in it.

    All of them, along with armed rebels, are doomed if Russia won't get involved. In this case, it could really be the end of Putin's career.
