    Sniper targeting positions of Ukrainian unit I'm with all night in #Mariinka. Takes two or three shots, then moves to new ground.

    Russians march in Moscow, yelling: "#Crimea is not enough! Our MiGs will land in Riga, our tanks will enter Prague."

    Russia deploys 3 new divisions = defensive measure. U.S. to deploy 1 new brigade = aggressive measure

    Russia continues to "steal" Ukrainian industrial plants......major war crime and definitely not sanctioned under Minsk 2....

    Apr05 18:10 #Makiivka @makeevchankaUA #bypass: over 10 18-wheelers w/o number plates, overloaded, fr/#Donetsk, another plant?

    Apr05 #Makiivka @makeevchankaUA by the way, they look like ones, that were heading #Donetsk on Mar17

    AND naturally they just keep on "stealing" Ukrainian coal and shipping it to Russia from where they then try to 'sell" it back to Ukraine.....labelled as Russian coal exports....

    Apr05 #Slovyansk #railway station, coal train, may be one from the occupied territory @Svet_inaya

    Has the UAF been lying about their WIA and KIA numbers for the last month in order to play down the Russian attacks in order to appease the West especially the US and Germans who repeatedly state the "ceasefire is largely holding"...??

    Volunteers: 82 Ukr wounded delivered so far this month to Kharkov hospital. Way more as reported by ATO press office.

    20:40 #Horlivka NW @_GivNeyt_ one can hear small arms, AGL. Ongoing battle. #Hluboka, #Gagarina mine, #Kurganka, #Mayorsk are active

    20:40 #Donetsk @AlfaNubovsky AA-gun works at the sky from #Putilovka area, probably at UAV

    20:40 #Horlivka @ahab9889 You can synchronize watches by those ISS hunters - "fireworks" over the city, #Shyroka_Balka - the same...

    20:40 #Donetsk @AlfaNubovsky #airport-#Pisky: short skirmishes - small arms and grenade launchers for sure, and something heavier(?)

    20:35 #Donetsk @rjpthjuljytwr "#Druzhba: to the west, strong ones + heavy MG. To the north of the route they fire at UAVs"

    20:52 #Horlivka @_GivNeyt_ Also since evening, skirmishes towards #Zaytseve. Small arms, lesser mortars

    21:11 #Dokuchaevsk @manbad2017 It has been a bit noisy, salvos. Dull bangs come from #Donetsk

    21:35 #Donetsk @rjpthjuljytwr [fb] "#Trudovski: serious battle started, restless, everything's in a whirl, just horrible"

    21:36 #Donetsk #Abakumova @rjpthjuljytwr [fb] Some insane activation too, BTR cannon&smth strange. It rumbles & shoots as nearby as further

    21:41 #Marinka @manbad2017 Intense flashes and booms of various strength

    Donetsk 22:50
    "To north/Zastantsyonnyi - heard a couple of powerful boom-booms. Judging by sound, tank working."

    Italian journo (in Moscow) already pushing the Putin line: 'Ukraine should stay neutral, and nobody will get hurt' https://twitter.com/Drag6/status/717838385679835137

    More Russian info warfare......
    Consider this: Crux of Kremlin's global "media plan" is using fake journalists to not only serve Kremlin agenda, but creatively advance it.

    Don't believe a word these thinktanks say until they say who is paying them to say it.

    More Russian info warfare AND this time from Trump's advisors......

    Michael McFaul
    ✔ ‎@McFaul Trump advisor calls annexation of Crimea "so-called". Wow! Out of step with most countries in world. Check it out
    http://www.globalpolicyjournal.com/b...Ef4LaA.twitter

    Trump's close ties to a Russian mobster, his attempts to do business in Russia, some of his advisors being paid by Russian companies and one political advisor who worked for the former corrupt Ukrainian President does not seem to "ring alarm bells"...AND then this YET no one in the US seems to "worry" about it????

    BUT THEN what can you expect.......
    A Paris-based US diplomat told me roughly half the members of #Congress do not have passports - meaning they've never traveled outside US

    Syrian Cessation of Hostilities is now formally dead...just as dead is the Minsk 2 agreement after days of massive Russian shelling's and ground attacks.....

    AFTER a not so publicized Putin hastily called National Security Council meeting...
    Russia relaunch his airstrike-campaign on opposition held areas in north #Syria with ~50 airstrikes the past 24h on #Aleppo, #Hama & #Homs

    AND for those SWJ readers that feel Syria and eastern Ukraine are not intertwined.....they are....two war fronts in the Russian non linear war against the West especially the US......
