Ukraine accuses Russia of being ‘aggressor state,’ after Putin declares Ukraine a ‘NATO legion’

NATO in Green, Russia in Orange (Crimea should also be orange–Ukraine is one of the grey countries between NATO and Russia)


The Ukrainian government in Kiev declared Russia an “aggressor state” today:

January 27, 2015

Amid a renewed surge of fighting in eastern Ukraine, the country’s parliament on Tuesday approved a statement identifying Russia as an “aggressor state” and European Union leaders weighed the possiblity of new sanctions against it, Reuters reported.

The actions come in the wake of Saturday’s shelling of the government-held port city of Mariupol, which killed 30 civilians and wounded around 100, and continued combat with pro-Russian rebels.

Ukraine’s parliament, along with declaring Russia as an aggressor, also voted to define the separatist “republics” in the east as “terrorist organizations.” The designations could introduce new consequences on the international stage.

To continue its nearly yearlong fight against the uprising in the east, the parliament also called for additional non-lethal military aid and tougher sanctions against Russia, Reuters reported.

All 28 EU leaders, in a rare joint statement, on Tuesday noted their grave concerns about the worsening security and humanitarian conditions in eastern Ukraine. They condemned the “indiscriminate shelling” of Mariupol and asked their foreign ministers to consider increased sanctions on Russia in light of the rebel offensive.

“In view of the worsening sitation, we ask [foreign ministers] to assess the situation and to consider any appropriate action, in particular on further restrictive measures, aiming at a swift and comprehensive implementation of the Minsk agreements,” the ministers wrote.  …

Earlier Monday, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg condemned what he called the “sharp escalation of violence” by Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, and dismissed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s claim that the Ukrainian army is a “NATO legion.”

Following an extraordinary meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission held in Brussels at the request of Ukraine’s government, Stoltenberg said “indiscriminate attacks” like Saturday’s rocket attack of Mariupol  “are unjustified and unacceptable.”

Stoltenberg characterized as “nonsense” Putin’s comment earlier in the day that Ukraine’s army is a “NATO legion.” He said, “there is no NATO legion. The foreign forces in Ukraine are Russian.”

‘Containment of Russia’

Russia’s Interfax news agency quoted Putin as telling students in St. Petersburg that Ukraine’s army had become a “foreign NATO legion” that is working to achieve “the containment of Russia,” a goal he said “absolutely does not coincide with the national interests of the Ukrainian people.”

The Russian leader also accused Ukrainian authorities of refusing to seek a “peaceful solution” to the conflict.

Europe is heavily involved with trying to resolve the situation between Russia and Ukraine. Europe wants Ukraine as part of its European Union, while it also wants to get along with Russia and lift sanctions. But many simply do not realize how bad Russia wants Ukraine. Kiev was once the capital of Russia.

Russia does not want any containment and has long been concerned that Ukraine might become part of NATO.  The reality is that NATO members are supplying information and money to Ukraine and Russia is supplying information and money to separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Despite official denials, NATO does support Kiev and Russia does support the separatists in Ukraine.

Yet, changes are coming.

The Bible shows, that for a time, there will be cooperation between Russia and Europe, but ultimately that Russia will turn against Europe (Daniel 11:44-45; Jeremiah 50:41-43; 51:11; Isaiah 13:1-8).
