1,100 Russian tanks, 330 warplanes along border with Ukraine

Our state informed OSCE about military potential being accumulated by Russia against Ukraine

Ukrainian and American experts, as well as the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, warned that under the pretext of holding strategic exercises Kavkaz 2020, Russia may resort to a large-scale offensive against Ukraine. The other day, the Russian president signed a decree on conscription from the reserve "for military training" - without specific dates for this training. This only increased the likelihood of an offensive – behind the decree may be the attempt of the Russian leadership to conduct a covert mass mobilization for military aggression.

Against this background, the question arises: what is the number of Russian troops ready to be involved against Ukraine? How many units of armament and military equipment do they have? In general, the answer to these questions was given at a meeting of the OSCE Forum for Security Co-operation on July 1.

As Ukraine currently chairs this OSCE policy-making body, the issue of implementing and modernizing the 2011 Vienna Document on Confidence- and Security-Building Measures was raised on Wednesday. The main speaker from Ukraine was Head of the Main Directorate for International Cooperation and Verification of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Leonid Holopatiuk. In particular, he pointed to the transformation of the occupied territories of Donbas into a "gray zone" that is not covered by the OSCE regime of arms control and confidence- and security-building measures.

Another factor of destabilization is the militarization of the occupied Crimea. The non-transparent nature of military exercises in the Russian Armed Forces also does not inspire confidence.

Ukrinform is the Ukrainian equivalent of Russia's official TASS news agency. The speculation here is that Russia may be gearing up for what Saddam did in Kuwait - a military exercise that turns out to be an invasion. Will Putin overrun the rest of Ukraine? What will Trump's response be, if anything? Time will tell.

This is a direct result of irresponsible resistance to Trump by the deep state, democrats and especially never Trumpers. It is sending a VERY strong message to Putin who just got his constitutional amendment vote and he’s REALLY feeling his oats!!!

[Russia and China are desperately seeking WWIII.]


They don’t want war - just the fruits of war. Surrender would suit them fine.

Interesting that China and Russia are both flexing
their muscles while internal unrest grips the US.

Coincidence? Probably not.

I believe Putin, a Hillary backer is on the verge of interfering in our forthcoming election cycle by invading Ukraine. He is testing President Trump’s resolve.

This should be interesting.

Putin bitterly regrets that the Ukraine was allowed to dissolve its union with Russia. He will huff and puff , try to recover as much of eastern Ukraine as possible as he took Crimea. But he realizes that the more populous and wealthier Western Ukraine is culturally different and there would never be peace if he moved militarily against them.

They think Trump is constrained by his reelection campaign and will avoid anything drastic before the election. The one thing everybody ought to know by now, including thugs of the world, is that Trump is unpredictable (on purpose).

Putin could have taken Ukraine days after the coup but who would want it? Not even the EU. But Soros does for some reason. Crimea a river Putin was heard to say.

Holy Scripture indicates there will indeed be another world war. Not the war of Armageddon, a war that will field 200 million men.

Nobody stopped Putin from seizing Crimea. Nobody is going to defend the Ukraine.
