Why doesn't NATO provide details of these units? Russia should demand a full accounting of its alleged occupation
forces from NATO.
I am disliking Putin a lot right now. The KLA did not get any pressure to make a deal with Belgrade in 1999. Why are
the Donbas rebels getting pressured by Russia to make concessions? NATO was the KLA's air force, but the Russian
Army has not directly helped the rebels at all.
Let the freaking haters in NATO bleat all they want. Russia should make their propaganda claims come true and send
in a limited number, say 30,000 strong force to kick the regime forces half way to Kiev. Then we can have some ceasefire
NATO and its dogs in Kiev are not making any iron clad guarantees that civilians will not be shelled 24/7 as was the case
during the last "ceasefire". So why make any deals at all until they are really hurting?
Putin has a strong hand and he is playing it smart. Any overt and/or formal RusFed miitary involvement will be jumped on by HATO propagandists and the US/EU reich-wing Russophobes as an excuse for more sanctions, fear-mongering and NATO force buildups (incl the neccesity for "rapid response" groups around Russias periphery). Putin is betting (correctly I think) that once the dust settles and the Ukie regime is forced to conclude hostilities to the Rebels terms that it will weaken the authority of President Pork-Shank and undermine his domestic legitimacy. Additionally, once the truth finally filters past the official agitprop to the Ukrainian population that the "Russian Invasion" was a lie invented by Kiev and its US handlers to explain away their disastrous command incompetance (and open hostility between regular military and extremist volunteer groups) then the tide of Russophobia will recede and Ukrainians will start to pay attention to the bastards that have been looting the aid and repressing the general population (like Kolomoiskis thugs and private army that have locked up Dnepropetrovsk like his own personal fiefdom).
Support for the anti-Russia faction will then start to collapse and Ukraine should eventually return to the non-aligned neutral stance it had before, but with a more federalised structure and de-centralisation of power to prevent any similar seizures by US/EU-sponsored radical ultranationalists. Ukraine will still be poor and corrupt, but the crazies will be gone and Russia can then play a constructive role in helping to rebuild a Ukraine that isn't a facist NATO satrap on her SW flank.
