authors of this NYT piece,
Ukraine Reports Russian Invasion on a New Front,
are not really convincing when presenting these
reports by the Ukrainian government as truthful:
incursion, which Ukraine’s military said
included five armored personnel carriers, was at
least the third movement of troops and weapons
from Russia across the southeast part of the
border this week, further blunting the
momentum Ukrainian forces have made in weakening
the insurgents in their redoubts of
Donetsk and Luhansk farther north. Evidence of a
possible turn was seen in the panicky retreat of
Ukrainian soldiers on Tuesday from a force they
said had come over the Russian border.
Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian
military in Kiev, said the Russian armored
column entered the town of Amvrosiyivka, south
of Donetsk, expanding what Western and Ukrainian
officials have described as one of the main
fronts in a multipronged counteroffensive
directed by Russia.
"momentum" the Ukrainian troops had was never as big
as the Ukrainian government had claimed. A few
motorized brigades ran through open territory held
by few insurgents and when coming to a halt at their
primary target were immediately cut off and
surrounded. Their moral is bad, their equipment old,
ammunition is low and the entire aim of their
campaign is dubious. Now even a few weak
counterattacks, the "counteroffensive", have them on

- indeed. I have absolutely no doubt that Russian
volunteers are fighting on the insurgency side. I
have no doubt that some ammunition is coming from
Russia. But judging from pictures of equipment and
ammunition the insurgents use nearly all of it seems

is using. I have yet to see and big updated Russian

translation error or an
intentional Poroshenko 'screw up'.
one author of the NYT piece above is Michael Gordon,
who, together with Judith Miller, wrote sensational
reports about proof of weapons of mass destruction
in Iraq. The current head of NATO who is promoting
war against Russia, Fogh-of-war Rassmussen, said 11
years ago: "Iraq has WMDs. It is not something we
think, it is something we know".
and the western news agencies that promoted the WMD
in Iraq claims are now claiming a Russian "invasion"
in Ukraine only to retract it when the damage is
done. Warmongers. All of them.
