    Ukraine Says It Destroyed Part of Armed Convoy From Russia

    'Ukraine said its troops attacked and partially destroyed a column of armed vehicles that had crossed the border from Russian territory, while Russia said it was concerned about an attack on another convoy carrying aid.

    Ukrainian government troops engaged the vehicles that had arrived overnight through a rebel-held section of the border, Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for the country’s military, told reporters in Kiev today. Ukrainian soldiers continue to come under shelling, including rounds fired from Russia, he said.'

    Uh oh?

    Is this a one time mistake or an escalation?

    Has Russia confirmed that the military column was attacked?

    It was stupid, that's what it was.

    That 10s video on the link is not going to hold up in court.
    Unless the Ukrainian govt can prove, like really, really prove with loads of evidence that nobody can twist or deny, that indeed the convoy was armed and was in fact, a military operation disguised as a humanitarian one, then it's going to be in big trouble because now Russia has casus belli.


    EDIT: Putin will be singing this tune all the way to Kyiv.

    This is the oddest of odd ploys by the Russians. They have a heavily armed convoy heading to Ukraine that they claim are "humanitarian aid" that crosses the border against the Ukrainian government's orders, and they want to complain about getting shot at?

    The amount of raw cynicism in this stunt is simply stunning.

    Quite simply: F*** that noise. Ukraine ordered that convoy not to cross the border and it crossed the border anyway. The Ukraine was entirely within its rights as a sovereign nation to blow that convoy to smithereens.

    I propose we ask Ukraine to protect our borders, too!

    Good question.

    You don't understand, it doesn't matter what they sent.

    Either the convoy reaches the separatists and they get armed and reinforced and the fighting continues or this happens... and now Russia has casus belli. Ukraine will be going against the clock to prove, beyond any doubt, not just reasonable doubt, that it was within rights to do this. This is going to be ukraine put not in a court of law by Russia, but in an execution block. One way or another, Russia will be getting something it wants out of this. Whether it's eastern ukraine, all ukraine... whether it's ukraine signing to become part of Russia' trade block... whatever Putin wants, he can go and make demands. You may find them unreasonable, I may find them unreasonable... guess who doesn't care...

    Doesn't matter. Not here, not in this situation. Not to Putin.

    That's what Kiev is saying! Or is it automatic that the thugs in Kiev are telling the truth and the thugs in Moscow aren't.
