Russia calls for ‘humanitarian corridor’ in Ukraine, while troops battle

The Foreign Minister of Russia is calling for something that would seem to affect the territory of Ukraine:

June 2, 2014

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says Russia will submit a draft United Nations Security Council resolution Monday calling for the creation of a humanitarian corridor in eastern Ukraine.

Lavrov told reporters the resolution also calls for an end to the ongoing violence in that region, and described the situation as one that is getting worse.

“Our Western colleagues have been telling us for quite a long time that as soon as the presidential election is held in Ukraine the situation will calm down. But everything is happening in exactly the opposite way,” Lavrov said.

President-elect Petro Poroshenko won election on May 25.

Ukrainian forces have been pushing an offensive against pro-Russian separatists who took control in some areas close to the Russian border.  Fighting continued Monday in the city of Luhansk, where separatists attacked a Ukrainian border guard post.

This type of corridor may give Russia the access it has wanted through Ukraine.  The Kiev government would likely not want this.

Here is more information on the fighting in Ukraine today:

Russian officials say a water shortage in Crimea is threatening to become acute as Ukraine has reduced the supply via a key cakrainian government forces and pro-Russia separatists fought a major battle Monday at a border patrol camp near the eastern city of Lugansk.

According to a statement from the Ukrainian border service, some 100 militants attacked the border guard headquarters in Mirny, a Lugansk suburb, using grenade launchers, mortars, and sniper fire in the early morning. By 7 a.m. local time, their numbers had swelled to 400, reports the Daily Telegraph. Both sides have suffered fatalities from the fighting.

Reuters adds that according to the Ukrainian government, insurgent snipers fired on government troops from inside a residential apartment building, and had not allowed residents to leave.

The fighting comes just a week after the election of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, who promised to step up the “anti-terrorism” operation against pro-Russia militants. Mr. Poroshenko has said that he is willing to sit down with disgruntled eastern Ukrainians to discuss their concerns, but has also said that he would not talk to armed “terrorists.”

Ukraine’s Russian-speaking east views the Kiev government as illegitimate, and members of the eastern regions of Donetsk and Lugansk declared “independence” from Kiev in referendums earlier last month. The referendums’ results were in turn seen as illegitimate by Kiev. The rebels in the east prevented most of their regions from voting in last week’s presidential elections.

Oleg Slobodyan, a Ukrainian border service spokesman, told The New York Times that the border guard was holding its own, but that it had yet to received help it has requested from the government.

“We’re doing the best we can,” Mr. Slobodyan told the Times, “but our mission was never intended to be one that repelled large armed attacks.”

Might Russia intervene militarily because of this? It certainly may, though it is exercising restraint at this time. It may be that the UN request, which follows other Russian requests in the UN, is intended to show that Russia has attempted to resolve the issue diplomatically, and presuming that does not go as Russia prefers, it may then declare it is justified in taking more direct military action.

The situation in Ukraine is tense and difficult. However, what is going on in Ukraine is NOT the start of WWIII as some, including various Protestants (who tend to point to certain prophecies in Ezekiel 38), have suggested (at least not the way they seem to intend those statements).

The USA does not want Russia to end up with any additional Ukrainian territory, but that, of itself, does not stop Russian plans.  The situation in Ukraine remains tense.
