    And Chechen military leaders were saying they were playing no part in Ukraine lulz.

    Sounds like the pro-russian separatists were not quite pro-russian enough for Putin's liking.

    Things usually improve when the Chechnyans arrive. A good sign.

    Chechens are true Ukrainian patriots, fighting against the illegal Kiev Nazi Junta that keeps sending punisher squads to kill innocent people in Eastern Ukraine. *rolls eyes*

    This whole conflict has passed any sort of sanity line if such existed in the first place.

    Well that escalated.
    Given the recent vote it would be wise for these separatists to tone it down.
    They downed a chopper killing more than a dozen soldiers the other day. Can't help but feel for some soldiers who are just protecting their nation's sovereignty.

    I'm amazed that foreign-based morons still manage to take up this stance.

    It's understandable in those who are solely subjected to the Russian agitprop machine but it's truly shameful for anyone else.

    But the separatists are merely peaceful citizens who collected their old hunting weapons in a spontaneous and self-funded resistance against the brutal fascist Kiev junta!

    This, for example, was used by his дедушка to hunt rabbits.

    History would have called that happening from a mile away. The same thing happened to many communist groups before the Russians would take over.

    Some Ukrainian army regimens are suspected to supply the patriots in the East with battle supplies because they disapprove of the government in Kiev... you know... because it's so popular.

    On the contrary.

    Many of them were requesting Russian annexation and Putin answered -"no".

    Russia is in a very sensitive economic position presently and would face even heavier economic challenges in attempting to integrate provinces with GDP per capita figures less than 1/3 of the national economy.

    Whenever this happens I'm always reminded of the Greens and the Browns.

    From what i have seen, the Ukrainian side are just some young soldiers fighting for what they believe in or just following orders.

    The "Russian" side, are very hardcore, filled with guys from all the dark corners of Russian Federation, cossacks, chechens, gopniks, all kinds of mercenaries... + some professional soldiers, and very, very few locals, so yeah not a nice bunch.

    I really feel for the Ukrainian side.

    Keep clinging on to the pathetic notion that foreign troops are 'Ukrainian patriots'. In no way does it make you appear to be Kremlin dupe.

    What little credibility you had left has been wiped out by this comment.

    It's either that or a troll.

    Is there a standing law in Russia that says every man must wear a blue and white striped tank-top at least once per week?

    Yes.

    They must alternate between those and Adidas tracksuits. An Adidas tracksuit embargo was the main reason Putin was petrified of German sanctions. The mullet law, modelled on Kim Jong-Un's haircut rule, is due to be enacted next month.
