    Wonder why the writer does not use the latest terms. The Ukraine army is “pro-US troops” according to CNN ?!! So now the truth is out even there.

    US UK aids the criminal regime to make war on their own people, while Russia gives humanitarian aid to the encircled besieged people of two oblasts who are living in basements!

    The worlds strongest military (and the energy and bigAg and banking corporations behind them) against two little oblasts, the people do not stand a chance.

    Help the Donbass people survive. Stop killing them and pushing them out. They are defending themselves and the illegal regime should stop going there.

    This country I live in called the UK, reeks with double standards and sheer hypocrisy in what it does.
    It is always being the US and Israels puppet with it’s foreign policy.
    Do you not see Cameron and Clegg, that the public are totally fed up with this propaganda tirade and sanctions against countries that won’t play ball with your New World Order.
    We will definitely not be voting for you…ever.
    Hope you enjoyed your Grosvenor Hotel Ball last night.

    “Ukraine and the United Kingdom will soon sign a memorandum on mutual understanding and defense cooperation, Ukrainian Defense Minister Col. Gen. Stepan Poltorak has said.”

    The Brits have gone mad, like the USA. What are they thinking of? Why spread the lies about Russia and pretend somehow the Ukraine needs more arms and violence?

    Why isn’t the paramount concern and most intense focus of certain world leaders on helping the suffering hundreds of thousands of ordinary men, women and children in Ukraine?
