Ukraine crisis: Donetsk rebels in mass withdrawal
Ukrainian separatist rebels pull back to the main city of Donetsk, abandoning several strongholds in the Donetsk region to government forces.
Let’s hope that this means the rebels are pulling back and are not going to ground in the country for a guerrilla war. I wonder what Russia is doing, if anything to facilitate these developments. Vladimir seems interested in a dialogue, but the United States should make note to Russia that while we can respect Russia, that we are not going to be foolish. It’s going to take the EU and Russia to heal Ukraine, the US should only act as a moderating influence in the conflict rather than a partisan for either less than reasonable side, regardless of how they verbalize liberal ideals. It’s not like the Kievan government was being a true champion of democracy by ignoring one third of its population.
Something to think about.
Think about it.
