    Ukraine accuses Russia of launching invasion

    'KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine accused Russia on Thursday of mounting an invasion in the southeast of the country in support of pro-Moscow separatist rebels.

    Ukraine's security and defense council said the border town of Novoazovsk and other parts of Ukraine's south-east had fallen under the control of Russian forces who together with rebels were staging a counter-offensive.

    "A counter-offensive by Russian troops and separatist units is continuing in south-east Ukraine," the council said in a post on Twitter.'

    No idea if it is true or not.

    Ukraine has become the kings of unfounded accusations lately.

    So I assume it is probably not true.

    Seems are worst concerns are materializing. Would bring Russia doom in the long run but for now the rest of Ukraine continues to be invaded following Ukrainian Crimea.

    Russia won't get past the Dnieper. If a full invasion happened, Dnieper is the best position for defense (like in WW2) for NATO (who I don't think will get involved). Ukraine can also hold it as well. Problem is Kiev sits on the Dnieper.

    Although, I do not agree with the practise.

    I think it is laughable for Russia to be sanctioned for supporting Ukrainian rebels when America openly supports other countries/organizations (often, corrupt regimes like Saudi Arabia) with many times the arms and support then Russia does; and yet no one even hints at sanctioning America for it.

    Pure hypocrisy.

    So we thought about Ukrainian Crimea also. But the more one lets the more one loses.

    Ukraine doesn't have a chance against a full fleged invasion by Russia. Besides too many in Ukraine support Russia.

    Saudi Arabia is a terrible regime that corruptly controls over 28 million people. And that is but one corrupt country that America props up/supports with arms.

    There is only a tiny fraction of that number in the breakaway Ukrainian area...and they voted overwhelmingly to leave but are being forced to stay by Kiev.

    You want to call that 'apples and oranges'...go ahead, I don't much care.

    We are done on this.


    Good day.
