    What kind of deals is Poroshenko making and Russia just continue’s??? Where the hell is the help from the surrounding countries?

      I’ve been reading tonight, September 14, that help is on the way. NATO had said it was not in a position to send ‘lethal military hardware’ but did not object if other countries did so to help Ukraine, and that is what is happening, thank goodness.

    I hope Ukraine is busy in build up of it’s armed forces and that help from neighbours is pouring in in many air ports and train stations, tanks, artillery, trucks etc… there are billions of dollars kept in banks by Defence ministery ’cause the head of the ministery is pro-russian traitor… he should release the money to buy more arms! Glory to Ukraine heroes!

    Ukraine should be prepared Putin didnt give up his plans to annex a lot of Ukraine. But study the Finnish border war in 1939 and all the later imperialistic wars Russia made. Ukraine can give to them a lot of losses!
