Live on Twitter: Journalists confirm invasion has begun

Russian soldiers near border

 

2014/08/14 • Featured, War in the Donbas

Did long predicted invasion of mainland Ukraine “officially” just start? UK journalists Shaun Walker (Guardian) and Roland Oliphant (Telegraph) seem to think it has, seeing Armored Personnel Carriers with official Russian plates cross the border. Various other journalists documenting the situation have photographed columns of tanks and other heavy military vehicles heading in the direction of the border.

As this develops, of course, be sure to follow us on Twitter:

“A column of armored vehicles (12 pieces) goes towards the Ukrainian border.”


This article will be updated as the situation progresses on Twitter.

    Well now that it is all out in the open maybe the West well start balancing out the support.
    What UA needs to do is bring this to a decisive close .
    They are going to have to realize that the longer this gets dragged out the worse it will get.
    Mass at least a Mech brigade north of Donetsk.
    Send in infiltration teams to guide in air strikes, artillery fire and harass the defenders.
    Conduct an airs assault with the 94th on the city center.
    Simultaneously send in the Mech infantry.

    The rebels are virtually cut off.Their leaders are running like rabbits.

    UA will take losses and civilian causalities,Once Donetsk is taken that will free up most of a division. The troops can be redeployed to face the Russians in Luhansk.

    With all the Russian troops there, Luhansk may be lost, or at least a portion of it. That’s no big deal it’s the poorest oblast in UA. It’s loss will shorten the boarder, remove a large restive population from UA, and give Putler the face saving win he must have to walk away from this.

    It’s now time to cripple Russia. No more meaningless sanctions, no more ‘offramps’, no more being part of G20, WTO. End all technical support and sales of all high tech equipment. They wait until Putin’s 87% rate starts dropping like a rock becuase they’re sick of eating cabbage soup and dial up phones and driving Lada’s. They want to be a pariah state that is full of lies and hatred, let them go make a nice little union with North Korea.

      Я думал, все, что вам нацисты оставили Германия для Южной Америки? Может быть, вы можете зарегистрироваться с армии Павла Губарева нео-нацистов провести этническую чистку Донбасс?

    Euromaidan Press: “Shaun Walker (Guardian) and Roland Oliphant (Telegraph) seem to think [the invasion has started]”

    Shaun Walker: “I don’t think it was “the invasion” proper. This is probably what has been happening for a while. Extraordinary to see it though.”

    How can you be this wrong? Shaun and Roland don’t think the invasion has started. They think they saw the Russian tanks/equipment have been sent across the border for months now.

      How can you be so wrong? He just meant that the invasion has been ongoing so it didnt really “start” today, not that it didn’t happen.

      from his article:
      “…the convoy crossed into Ukrainian territory, using a rough dirt track and clearly crossing through a gap in a barbed wire fence that demarcates the border. Armed men were visible in the gloom by the border fence as the column moved into Ukraine. Kiev has lost control of its side of the border in this area…it was incontrovertible evidence of what Ukraine has long claimed – that Russian troops are active inside its borders.”
