Kyiv Says Russian Military Attacked Its Forces Inside Eastern Ukraine

Ukraine said Tuesday that Russian forces had attacked its military units fighting separatists in eastern Ukraine’s Luhansk region.

Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said that “in violation of all prior agreements,” a “regular military formation of the Russian armed forces” had attacked Ukrainian forces in the northern part of the zone of the “anti-terrorist operation,” as Kyiv calls its campaign against the pro-Russian separatists.

Lysenko said heavy fighting was continuing around two Ukrainian military checkpoints near Slovyanoserbsk, but that government forces had “stopped the advance of Russian troops.”

He also said that Ukrainian intelligence had tracked three more battalion tactical groups of Russian motorized infantry and a Russian artillery division heading toward Russia’s border with Ukraine.

On Monday, Lysenko said some 700 Russian troops had crossed into Ukraine that day to back up rebel forces. On Tuesday, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov, called Lysenko’s claim   “absolute nonsense.”

Peace talks this week

A new round of peace talks to settle the Ukraine conflict will be held Wednesday in Berlin, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said. The foreign ministers of Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany will participate.

“We’re faced with a threatening situation again due to new fighting flaring up in eastern Ukraine in recent days,” Steinmeier said Tuesday.

According to Steinmeier, the request for a meeting came from Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin.

“We now need to prevent military confrontations from intensifying any more and avoid further political escalation between Kyiv and Moscow,” Steinmeier said.

A meeting on Ukraine involving the four countries’ leaders was to take place last week in Kazakhstan but was called off because of lack of progress in the implementation of a 12-point peace plan the warring sides agreed to in September in Minsk, Belarus.

Land grab accusations

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Klimkin accused pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine’s east of using the Minsk cease-fire deal to seize an additional 500 square kilometers (194 square miles) of land.

“Taking advantage of the fact that our forces complied with the cease-fire, the terrorists seized very substantial territory,” he said at a news conference. …

Yanukovych arrest warrant

At the request of the office of Ukraine’s prosecutor general, a Kyiv court issued an ‘in absentia’ arrest warrant for former President Viktor Yanukovych.

The move is a procedural requirement needed for requesting Yanukovych’s extradition from Russia, the prosecutor general’s office said Tuesday.

The USA has basically supported Kiev in many of its moves and actions–including its ‘undemocratic’ removal of former President Yanukovych.

A report I saw earlier said that the Europeans want to keep sanctions in place against Russia.  Russia may have decided that it has little to lose by making incursions into eastern Ukraine, whether or not the report from Kiev is accurate.

Most in the West do not realize how bad Russia wants Ukraine.

Russia wants the option to influence and/or acquire all the territory of Ukraine. It likely feels that its limited involvement is the least it can do to show support for the separatists that are opposing the Ukrainian government in Kiev. In the past Russia has basically dared Ukraine to attack, which would give it a claimed cause to fight back. The situation remains tense.

Russia’s President Putin basically believes that the West poses a threat to his nation and that if all of Ukraine goes into the European Union (which is what the government of Kiev wants), it will thus militarily align with the West (which is what it is in the process of doing). Russia does not want NATO closer.

Germany and the EU wants Ukraine, but does not want a war with Russia.

Many in the West do not realize this, but Kiev was once the capital of Russia. Russia considers Ukraine more of a province than a separate nation. Those in western Ukraine disagree (as do many in the east).

Many in parts of Ukraine and Russia are descendents from the ancient Medes. Those called Medes are also shown to destroy the final European Babylonian power according to both Isaiah and Jeremiah:

1 The burden against Babylon which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw…

17 “Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them,
Who will not regard silver;
And as for gold, they will not delight in it.
18 Also their bows will dash the young men to pieces,
And they will have no pity on the fruit of the womb;
Their eye will not spare children.
19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms,
The beauty of the Chaldeans’ pride,
Will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. (Isaiah 13:1, 17-19)

11 Make the arrows bright!
Gather the shields!
The Lord has raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes.
For His plan is against Babylon to destroy it,
Because it is the vengeance of the Lord,
The vengeance for His temple. (Jeremiah 51:11)

The fact that there are multiple kings of the Medes indicates that multiple powers involved in this end time confederation represent multiple governments. Perhaps, such as Russia, Belarus, Crimea, and possibly some parts of Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, etc.

Even now, not all in Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia want to be part of the European Union, and some prefer to be in Russia’s upcoming Eurasian Union. Those that become disillusioned/disappointed by the EU may ultimately back out of it.

Sending in military and other supplies improves the relationship between Russia and some of its supporters in the Ukrainian territories. Prophecy will be fulfilled.
