Heavy Fighting in Eastern Ukraine: “We will kill hundreds of them for each of ours” – Poroshenko

An analysis of the forces involved in the fighting and their respective allegiances shows, Ukraine has descended into a civil war driven by Nazi-party War-Lords and Oligarchs.

A fighter jet was downed, dozens of militia loyal to the self-declared Nazi government in Kiev were killed. Kiev’s president Petro Poroshenko promised “we will kill hundreds of them for each of ours”.

After meeting top officials of Kiev’s armed forces and security agencies, including the interior ministry, President Petro Poroshenko promised to kill hundreds of each of the local rebelling fighters for each of the so-called Ukrainian troops. The “promise” was published on the “President’s” official website.

Those so-called Ukrainian troops are in fact locally organized, Nazi Party commanded militia, which are organized by war-lords belonging to the self-declared, overtly Nazi Pravy Sector and Svoboda Party, as well as to local oligarchs.

The meeting and Poroshenko’s “promise” came after several dozen of troops loyal to Kiev had been killed in the region around the city of Lughansk.

The city remains under heavy artillery fire, air raids and other attacks from forces loyal to Kiev.

The map above is showing which forces are deployed where in Ukraine. It clearly shows that the situation is a de-facto civil war.

The distribution and allegiances of the forces shown in graphic clearly shows that reports about a central government’s fight against rebelling regions are false, misleading and most likely willfully disseminated misinformation that is regurgitated by mass media who copy past news agency propaganda.

Analysts have warned for weeks, that president Poroshenko has very little actual influence over the military and political situation in Ukraine. Poroshenko ran as independent and has no party in parliament to back him. The situation is, in fact, under control of the parliament.

That is, a parliament that is dominated by the overtly Nazi Svoboda Party, the overtly Nazi Pravy Sector, the beholden Udar Party. Any opposition against the violence has been purged from the parliament months ago. It may be re-called that armed gunmen stormed the parliament in March. That those who were not purged declared Russian illegal, thus staring the rebellion of 3,500 governors in the eastern regions of Ukraine.

The official website of the self-proclaimed Lughansk People’s Republic reports that troops loyal to Kiev use subversive methods to launch attacks against residential areas including medical facilities.

The building of the Lughansk Clinic for Early Oncological Treatment has reportedly come under mortar fire on Friday, some civilian bystanders were reportedly killed.

The Russian Itar-Tass news agency reports that aircraft operated by troops loyal to Kiev attacked the town of Perevalsk on Friday morning. Self-defense forces reportedly shot down one assault plane near the village of Stepankova.

Fighting and attacks were also reported from the village of Teplichnoye, positions near Alexksandrovka, the village of Yekaterinovka, Krasny Partizank, the city of Krasnodan, Perevalsk, and other locations.  The Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Friday, that it is preparing part of a draft UN Security Council Resolution on the situation in Ukraine.
