Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry is accusing Russia of sending “terrorists” across the border into their breakaway eastern oblasts tonight after fighting was reported between a border patrol in Luhansk and truckloads of armed men.
Exactly who the armed men were is unclear, but they claimed the gunmen had assault weapons and rocket launchers, and are now massed on the Russian side of the border.
Luhansk is overwhelmingly ethnic Russian, and has declared itself the “People’s Republic of Luhansk,” a distinct entity from Ukraine. So far most of the fighting has occurred in the Donetsk Oblast, not Luhansk, but the border incident today suggests this may be out to change.
What little fighting was reported today was inside Ukraine, and not inside Russia, and conspicuously Russian officials have not confirmed any incidents themselves near Luhansk.

The you know what maybe hitting the fan. I might be wrong about Putin and his about face this week after all. I hope so. This insanity has to stop!!!!!
Iraq-Iran-Syria-Afghanistan-Libya and people of eastern Ukraine producing the biggest and largest and most sophisticated atomic bomb in the plant mars and beyond, if this is true then what the Ukrainian foreign ministry says is also true.
Ukraine government is composed of people educated from soviet times.They apply the goebbels system : lie,lie always.They accused Russia of all sins.It works because western politician are products of cold war time.But one day theses politicians will realize that something is going wrong : the depicted situation is more complicated that it seems and not as told.
US & Inreal are masters of this, the ukes are punters
The real question is…when the Ukrainian government screws the pooch and does something well beyond the pale, something completely indefensible by sane and civilized people, will the US and their poodles denounce and rethink their support of the fascists…or will they continue down the road they're on and end up standing alone against the entire world (except for the poodles that follow them, of course.)
My guess is the USG will blame the Russians, and double down on support for the government they paid $5 billion to put in power. US interests (Hunter Biden's and Devon Archer's) are involved.
Like their anti semetic heritage will demand eventually!
Lugansk is 39% Russian. The armed bands are probaly private contractors' mercenaries having nothing to do with the Russian government, although such bands wandering around quite openly ridicules the Russian government. It is perfectly possible that oligarch allies of the US neocons might still try to destabilise Lugansk, but I would guess that the Russian colonists have lost their fight and will probably move back accross the border.
Meanwhile at this very moment the US is doing the exact same thing, openly in Syria and with the lies it attributes to Putin in Libya. But hey, that's not the same, because we're doing it. We can protect anyone we claim needs it, and the Russians have no business protecting ethnic Russians next door to Russia.
Really we'd all be better off if we all stopped this, but the pure dishonesty of the "outrage" is disgusting.
