In Minsk, the Trilateral Contact Group signed an agreement on the withdrawal of guns – with caliber under 100 mm – from the contact line.

This is a game of hide-and-seek with reality, played by the visually impaired in rose-tinted glasses. Or treason. After all, over the past day alone, we recorded the use of 120 mm mortars by the terrorists (and by the way, the use of armored vehicles as well).

Along the entire line of contact, cannon artillery units (122 and 152 mm) and MLRS units are recorded, as well as armored groups of Russian-terrorist forces. On the “front line”, the enemy has more tanks than there are in the armies of many European countries; there is nothing that indicates they are being withdrawn. Even the OSCE SMM recognizes and sees this. So what the hell with the ‘weapons with under 100 mm caliber’?

Trick question: what information is the Trilateral Contact Group (particularly the representatives of Ukraine in it) working with, to accept such decisions and put their signatures [to them]? If they do not have access to objective information about the events in the ATO zone, then they should say so, “We do not know a damn thing, we only watch Putin’s TV, we cannot make objective decisions.” However, if this is a conscious position and an informed decision, then I see no difference between the activities of our “ambassadors” in Minsk and Putin’s “struggle for peace.”

  1. Freedom_for_all says:

    The Russian Dictator V. Putin is now carrying out his indiscriminate air raid campaign, not in Ukraine but, in Syria, suddenly. People like G. Kaparov now states that the new war front in Syria is just another “show” for Putin to sustain his power in the Kremlin. I suspect Kasparov is right.
    However, the world leaders are still in a state of shock, apparently, being too shaken to their core to respond to the new war waged by Putin. Putin is already killing many innocent civilians in Syria again.
    As a black belt holder of Judo, the master of the Kremlin must be aware that he is in a vulnerable position at the moment. Judo is said to be an art of “balance”, rather than power and force. When your opponent loses his balance, you will throw him and win. That is what the sport is about, as Putin must know. Putin may have forgotten it already, though.
    Putin is leaning towards the Syrian war now, apparently. He still has his guerilla forces (so called hybrid forces) in Ukraine of course. But it is difficult for a large country with long borders like Russia to manage several wars in foreign countries at a time, as everyone knows. Now Putin chose to lose his balance, perhaps because of the unpleasant quagmire situation in the Donbass which was created by the resilient Ukrainian forces.
    Even in such a favourable situation like today, the US President Obama does not want to offer Ukraine a series of advanced weapons. In spring this year, General Wesley Clark recommended the US government to offer Ukraine an extensive supply of weapons with “strategic lift” readiness. But Obama and his government did not want to listen to his advice then. Today, Obama’s opponent, Putin, started focusing on bombing the innocent civilians and the US-backed rebels in Syria but Obama is still undecided while the US-backed Syrian rebels are being killed.
    Many people in Ukraine must be wondering now why Obama still hesitates to counter Putin by announcing just his “will” to supply Ukraine advanced weapons, not only the American-built military trucks he did so far.
    By promising Ukraine to supply the much needed weapons, Obama can finally counter Putin and deter a further attack against Ukraine, saving his own face at the same time. By doing so, the US and the NATO member countries will finally get an upper hand against the Kremlin in the Ukrainian War as well.
    At last, Putin the black belt Judoka has finally lost his balance by going into Syria to bomb the civilians. Putin himself, at least, must know that he is in a vulnerable position, maybe for the first time since 1999 when he started the second Chechen War in which he chose indiscriminate bombing of civilians the way he is doing in Syria.
    Putin recently stated that the NATO’s bombing of Libya in 2011 did no good to the country. That was true although his wars in Ukraine and elsewhere have been doing nothing better either. The endless wars in the Middle East created the unprecedented refugee crisis the EU faces this year. Such a refugee crisis may happen to Ukraine and Eastern Europe any time if the ongoing Ukrainian War is not finished sooner rather than later. Let us see if the US and the NATO will finally make a decision to provide Ukraine advanced weapons, at least a “promise” to do so, to deter and end the bloody war and occupation in Ukraine.
