.@SenJohnMcCain speaking in #Mariupol about #Ukraine-#Russia war: "We will send the invaders back to where they came from"

"I am here to argue for a dialogue that merges our futures," said Kissinger in Moscow in February 2016.

MORE evidence Kissinger is trying to sell the US on the Putin proposal for an new Yalta 2.0 giving him complete influence in Europe and the ME...in exchange for really nothing at all back to the US...

Interestingly, we have slightly differing numbers.
While Poroshenko said 211 KIA, you have 217 and I 225.
Besides, I counted..

Numbers source - ATO HQ reports, including only Ukrainian army regular soldiers, 1 attack could be "Half day non-stop fighting"

Svitlodarsk salient: tactical situation, achievements and perspectives:
https://informnapalm.org/en/svitloda...perspectives/#

2 JAN 2017 in the middle of yet the 20th Russian so called ceasefire....
Ukraine reports 32 attacks on Ukrainian positions in Donbas
UAF reported WIAs/KIAs....


During 2016 the daily average Russian attack rate was 44.....40-50 attacks per day are actually indicators of a full scale ground war thus in the middle of Minsk 2 and repeated Russian so called ceasefires WE had a serious war underway....

2 Ukr soldiers killed, 2 wounded in military unit near Maryinka > violation of the rules of handling weapons

Russia invades a eastern Ukraine town; sends in Putin's "LPR"/"DPR" terrorists. Ukraine liberates a town; sends in civilian police with only pistols and a smile and a 1-800 local number to call with local problems.

UAF radio cat (Forward Cat Observer---FCO) coming off a 24 hour work shift...he spent the night calling in return artillery fire after his UAF outpost was attacked 12 times...he called for return fire after he could not get any sleep...a sleepy cat can take only so much....no one was hit in the UAF positon due to his rapid call for return fire....

Azor....there is an interesting way to estimate Russian deaths inside eastern Ukraine but it takes a lot of research but the info is there....

Collating 2016 #OSCE data. Why are Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations trucks crossing border? Carrying bodies?
http://www.osce.org/om/255341

Plus the OSCE reported Russian trucks spotted carrying the 200 symbol for KIAs...

This though does not count those buried inside eastern Ukraine in largely unmarked graves...who usually are locals...
