    Here's what I don't get. If Maidan wants to kill Zackarchenko, then why not simply target the Donetsk oblast government building in Donetsk with a Tochka U? That would blow up the building and kill Zackarchenko.

    OSCE might as well just leave while they can....


    Gorlovka residents and the OSCE, after shelling

    Residents Gorlovka gave vent to his emotions, expressing all that they think about the Ukrainian authorities Poroshenko, and inaction of the OSCE mission.

    Fascist Kiev regime is going to start a offensive, that's for sure. Any gonna make a guess as to when the offensive will start? I think it going to be in late August or early September. Ukraine might be brining some troops to the front lines to provoke the NAF into responding to one of thier shelling and then blame the NAF for killing so many soldiers and Justify attacking back.

    Also I think the U.S. Has probably given fascist Kiev regime all sorts of weapons.

    The country’s GDP is expected to shrink 9 percent this year, with annual inflation expected to jump to 46 percent, the IMF has warned. The debt will hit 95 percent of GDP this year, according to the National Bank of Ukraine.

    I guess that was one of the 'Western Ideals' that the KooKranians were dreaming about...High debt to GDP ratio's!!! lol1

    It does indeed look like the Kiev regime wants to create some more cauldrons.



    NAF made a big mistake when they did not respond to Kiev shelling, that lead to this.

    I can't believe RT is spouting the 9% figure when Ukraine's GDP fell almost 18% year on year in the 1st quarter.
    To have a net fall of 9% in 2015 requires Ukraine's GDP to grow by 9% in the remaining 3 quarters. That ain't
    gonna happen since the 2nd quarter will still be down compared to 2014:

    Note the lack of any turn-around trend in Ukraine's GDP drop.

    That would not stop the Kiev regime and give the NATO propaganda lie factory more ammunition
    to justify Kiev's war crimes. Instead NATO liars have to make up stories about the Russian army
    gearing up for another invasion.

    Trump is no man of the people, but he did drop a couple of huge truth bombs during the recent republican debate. He flat-out said that US politicians are owned lock, stock and barrel by the American aristocracy.

    Mike Whitney wrote a good, short piece in regard to it:

    http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/08/07/trumps-triumph-billionaire-blowhard-exposes-fake-political-system/

    He's convinced that for blurting out the unmentionable in front of much of the country, Trump will be torn down by the US oligarchy, even though he's is one of their own. The oligarchs own all the major media, so I imagine that he is correct about that. They will Howard Dean his ass one way or the other.

    Time for NAF to learn from their forefathers at Kursk - three strong defensive lines with minefields, camouflaged AT ditches, tanks and AT positions, well hidden gun emplacements + strategic reserve to contain a breakthrough in case it occurs.

    yeah well that's like saying the water is wet...But I want to get Trump at the White house, gotta have that sweet sweet early presidency recession, every one had it. Clinton, Bush Jr., Obimbi. Trump's gonna crash the US economy like a boss, and then claiming people aren't playing fair.

    But they had to worry about effective tactics, good commanders, higly trained and motivated personel, advanced weapons.

    Both sides have access to good intel. So it all boils down to numbers, training, equipment and good command - just like at Kursk. Wink
