A sequence of War Crimes: Poroshenko’s army shelling of vast residential areas in Donetsk & towns around, 18 Jan 18th 2015

To blog - updated graphic material on Donetsk destructionOn a series I posted on Twitter last week, I have been warned on Posroshenko’s intentions to re-initiate his “ATO” offensive in Eastern Ukraine. It was not a difficult guessing.

Firstly, his campaign-army in Eastern Ukraine received recently new military equipment. At the same time, the ambassador of Ukraine in Turkey declared last week that NATO was funding new equipment and training.

Secondly, Poroshenko himself declared (in the middle of the ongoing talks-process for peace)  that in 2015 he would be achieving, militarily, “total victory”. This was a clear sign that operations will be set in motion by Kiev, regardless the ongoing peace-talks.

Finally, Kiev rejected just days before the assault on Donetsk, Putin’s bid directed to the belligerent parties (the Ukraine government and the Popular Democratic Republics in the Donbass region) regarding the evacuation of heavy artillery form the the ‘war-zone’, which has become in fact besieged towns and other civil populates areas in Donbass.

On January 17-18 2015 the Ukraine forces integrated by military regulars, drafted soldiers plus variety of fascists battalions  and militias financed by local oligarchs, initiated their offensive in Donetsk. The Western media have of course solely distributed the NATO/Kiev version, on that it was an operation aimed to recapture the Donetsk airport (sic). No media outlet has commented on the zero strategic value of an airport which by the time of the new offensive it was already totally destroyed,  and hence, not useful for any possible air-traffic. In other words, Western media did not inform on the real tactical aims of this US-advised, or perhaps led, war operation: a) to send a massage to the international community on that is war – not peace talks – that is ongoing in Eastern Ukraine; b) to attempt morally decimate the civil population of Donetsk and areas in the periphery – for these peoples are the backbone of the Democratic Republic in Donbass. The ultimate tactical means to serve such operation was the shelling, missile impacting, and bombing of dense civilian populated areas, e.g. apartment-buildings.

c) Yet the operation had seemingly a main strategic aim, an aim of geopolitical value: to serve as pretext for the anti-Russia decisions taken at EU-level, by the same bosses that control the puppet government of Kiev (and finance its economic deficit, and fund its military grown).
