2014/09/06 • War in the Donbas

Explosions have now been confirmed near Mariupol, reports a number of western journalists including Will Vernon and Fergal Keane of BBC, Roland Oliphant of the Telegraph, and Shaun Walker of The Guardian. The press service of the DNR has also stated that they are storming the city.

Recall that yesterday Russia’s ambassador to the OSCE anticipated the “liberation” of the city by Russian-backed forces, falsely stating that the region was 90% “ethnic Russian” and that this would be “natural.” (the region is actually 38% Russian)


Translation: “Armed Forces of New Russia taking Mariupol.”

    Russian a**holes!

    If this is true, the Russian economy should be bankrupted. The West should cut all ties with Russian and find other markets. This is an outrage. Putin deserves our utter comtempt.

    Gutless Western leaders, Do something. Arm Ukraine so it can defend itself. Forget about Putin’s nuclear weapons. We have them too. Help Ukraine stop this Hitler. TO WAR!

    Please, NATO troops, take vacation in Ukraine! Help save this sovereign country from the invasion of Russian terrorist! Mariupol has firmly and publicly stated they do not want to be ‘liberated’! Those in the city have done what they could possibly do to protect and save themselves!

      I’m spanish. Fuck you if you think I’m going to fight for your oligarchs, your nazis, your gas princess and your chocolate kings.
      Next year I’m voting for a party (PODEMOS) to get Spain out of NATO, bunch of warmongers.

        Having worked with the Spanish in Iraq i can honestly say good riddance. You are more trouble than you are worth. Except I hear Rota is very cool.
        You people lost your balls a long time ago.
        I hope that Catalonia business doesn’t get ugly. I am routing for the Catalonians.

  • Murf

    Well that didn’t take long. Why do you make a cease fire then break it literally within minuets. Makes you wonder who’s really is runnning that cluster fuk.
    I hope UA made the most of the breather.
    Now hopefully the west realize what a bunch of clowns Putin is making of them and start taking it personal.

      mURF PLEASE STOP GIVING THOSE FOOLS THAT MUCH CREDIT…THEY’VE KNOWN ALL ALONG WHAT RUSSIA IS DOING AND DON’T GIVE A SHIT OR ARE SUCH COWARDLY BASTARDS. I WANNA PUKE!!!

      • Murf

        At some point even a court fool gets tired of being made a fool. Hopefully this will mean the sanctions are at least still on. The french and germans were already talking about repealing them.
        I guess hope springs eternal. Especially naive, misguided, and selfish hope.

        Sandy,please don’t all caps it makes you look like you are shouting all the time.

    So wait – Russia went back on its word after lying through its teeth left and right about this conflict? You don’t say?

  • sandy miller

    fUCK IT…usa NATO PUT FUCKING BOOTS ON THE GROUND YOU WORTHLESS, BASTARDS!!!!

  • Lilia Horodysky Kovalenko

    This was predictable, but I thought they’d at least give a few days before they’d start again. So, with a heavy heart, I ask you to join me to prepare my husband’s Ukrainian military squad [as it seems I’m the only foreigner with a commanding officer in the Ukrainian army]. They lack everything, from socks all the way up to bullet-proof vests. Please visit https://www.facebook.com/ViktorsSquad for more information. “Like”, “Share” and/or donate as much as you can so they not only could defend themselves and Ukraine, but also be on the offensive and push back Russia, once and for all.

    • Murf

      God speed to your brave husband.
      Best regards from the US.

      • Lilia Horodysky Kovalenko

        Thank you…

  • Kruton

    If the Ukrainians had JDAM kits the Bolshevik scum would run.Precision targeted weapons are imperative!

  • Kruton

    Petro ,enough with the ceasefire crap please!

  • Arctic_Slicer

    This is a perfect example of why you don’t negotiate with terrorists. Ukraine needs to reinforce it’s position in Mariupol, pronto and kill every Kremlin aligned soldier that tries to invade it.

  • Arctic_Slicer

    Last time the ceasefire lasted 10 days; this time looks like we got maybe 30 hours…..
