Should Kyiv choose to pursue a military scenario in Donbas, it could prompt Russia to actively intervene there, and it is not ruled out that Moscow could eventually recognize independence of the self-proclaimed Donetsk (DPR) and Luhansk (LPR) People’s Republics, according to members of the Russian State Duma’s three largest factions and two committees interviewed by Interfax.

Estonia: Belgian F-16s take over NATO air mission as crisis in region worsens
Belgians enduring commitment to NATO’s Baltic Air Policing (BAP) mission is demonstrated by the deployment of the F-16 fighter aircraft to take over the mission from Italy….
…”I am impressed to see how Air Policing in the three Baltic States has evolved and I applaud the constant expansion of NATO’s capabilities,” underlined the Belgian Air Force General [Harold van Pee].
“It goes without saying that your mission is essential for the control and defence of Estonia’s air space, but also to NATO’s air space integrity,” said Estonian Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Defence Mr. Kusti Salm. “We live in difficult times. There is an ongoing dangerous political gamble at NATO’s borders, not far from here…, ” Salm added. “Such a crisis cannot be resolved with artillery, ships or warplanes, but we will not submit to blackmail…,” he concluded.
“We will do as much as we can to help residents of Donbas in the event of active aggression. Some 700,000 citizens of Russia live there. This number may increase to around one million by the end of the year. It will be a million Russian citizens….And, naturally, we are not going to leave our citizens who live in Donbas in the lurch,” United Russia Party MP Viktor Vodolatsky, first deputy chairman of the State Duma’s Committee on CIS Affairs and Compatriots, told Interfax.
Vodolatsky said…recognizing the Donbas self-proclaimed republics’ independence…could help stop attacks.
“Of course, these territories should be recognized in order to put an end to these actions…,” he said.
Ukraine has long been pursuing a policy aimed at abandoning these agreements, and if the Ukrainian authorities abandon the Minsk Agreements and the Normandy format, “it will give a free hand to all sides,” including Russia, the parliamentarian said.
Emboldened by West, Ukrainian FM threatens Moscow with “massacre,””coffins carrying bodies of Russian soldiers”
“An attack on Ukraine could be a threat to Russia itself. For many years, they have spent millions to zombify their population, dehumanize and humiliate Ukraine through propaganda media. However, despite this, it’s not yet clear to the Kremlin how the general public in Russia will react if an endless flow of coffins carrying bodies of Russian soldiers starts coming in from Ukraine,” [Foreign Minister Dmytro] Kuleba said.
***“At the moment, our Armed Forces are incomparably stronger [than in 2014]. If Russia does decide to go to war, they will have to expect an extremely high death toll among Russian soldiers, incomparable to 2014. It will be a massacre,” warned the head of Ukrainian diplomacy.
But what did Russia do to deserve all this War preparation and hysteria, now gaining its own momentum and nearly unstoppable??
Nothing new has happened. Not even confirmation that Russia has ‘moved its troops’.
It’s absurd. Russian has zero interest in a suicide invasion of basket-case Ukraine, or anywhere else.
Russia “Moved Troops”, in their own territory, just maybe! What a crime to arrange Armageddon!?
What exactly is the Russian Threat? Russia has a GDP less than Italy and has to defend a federation that stretches to The Pacific!
Why is this happening? Is this what we pay our taxes for?
Why is NATO pushing the deranged ultra nationalists in Ukraine to shred all agreements ans well as arming, financing and urging them to massacre the 1 million ethnic Russians in Donbas? Do they even know that most people by now in Donbas have dual Russian citizenship and Russia is forced to defend them. Can’t Ukrainians remember how WW2 began?
Is the Pentagon locked into an unhinged compulsion to avenge its humiliation in Afghanistan? Or the War Industry, on a $750 billion budget, insanely desperate to use up its weapons ?.
Does Ukraine really want all those Russians in that tiny part of Ukraine? Do they really need Crimea, Russia’s main naval base, which was never really Ukraine anyway? Aren’t they content with the flow of soft IMF, EU and World Bank cash?
Are the NATO leaders suffering from Brain Fog from Vaccine Reactions.? Or Eastern European rulers delirious with mini-Hitler psychosis?
Russians are still deeply shocked by losing 20 million citizens to the European Nazi invasion, including by divisions of Ukrainians, Crimean tartars and Poles, now glorified by far-right parties from those countries now menacing Russia’s borders. This is Russia’s ‘Red Line’. Can’t they see that?
Please Mr NATO, can you kindly stand down and explain yourself? Before you kill me, my family, and just about everyone else!

- globalfooling .. The situation unfolding in the world today is very reminiscent of that which preceded WW2; ie threats were issued that if the territorial integrity of Poland were impugned, then war would be declared; but then as now, such an invasion when it came was not predicated on the aggressive intent of the invading nation, but upon its responsibility to protect large numbers of its citizens who were under real and present physical danger from the invaded nation.
Thus, Hitler invaded Poland on the 1st September 1939 in response to what subsequently proved to be the brutal murder of 58,000 Germans marooned on Polish soil since the end of WW1, a massacre fully investigated and reported on by German police units in the period following the invasion. We can see how the Russians similarly marooned in Donbass region today are under identical threats from the regime in Kyiv, and thus the parallels are quite remarkable. Like Reply
