I'm sorry Big_Gazza it's just how it is. And it's a huge problem. We're the aggressor. Putin should have provoked the other side into striking first.
You forget that the shelling of Donetsk was getting more and more intense lately. There is such a thing in the UN Charter as the right to self defense but somehow it only counts when Israel bombs civilians in Gaza?
Russia was well within it's rights when it started this ops to protect Russians from constant attacks.
