Link in German.
15 dead apparently, and the seperatists are starting a major offensive according to NATO after having been supplied with heavy weaponry. Aaaaand everybody's talking about a land corridor to Crimea.
Knit, what was that about north wind blowing? And - a bit earlier - about the impossibility of Russian troops in Ukraine?
That was before I actually got told about there really being Russian troops in Ukraine by competent people. But the north wind is, apparently, blowing in Donbass now, meaning that the regular Russian army is either already helping the rebels, or is likely to help them soon.

I'm going to do the smart thing here and disengage. This isn't a hill I paticularly care to die on.

Russia's been waging a hybrid war in Ukraine since the Donbass uprising happened.

That's clear - I meant the bit where now even you say that Russia is invading another country.

Haven't they been saying that for quite a while now? Or we are invading Poland/Baltic states now? Misread the post, Helgo. Let Knit explain.

So far it seems that every nation with nukes invades intervents whatever part of the world they feel like backing it with whatever reason they have imagination to create or emphasize. The rights of man? Forget it, in global scale it is still the right of the strong.

Yup.

Not EVERY nation with nukes, Britian doesn't, France doesn't (intervening in their former colony doesn't count), India doesn't, Pakistan doesn't. Although India and Pakistan would rather invade each other.

Ukraine shelled Mariupol? That Russian scum dare to say that? I wish a nuke on Moscow. Russian or otherwise. It is not important

It is completely plausible because friendly fire incidents are a thing.

You're probably right about Pakistan and India. I counted Britain and France as NATO members, maybe I was wrong with that one.

The most surprising fact the the NAF's offensive is that they're attacking at multiple directions at once - and apparently pushing everywhere they attack, with various degrees of success.

France doesn't (intervening in their former colony doesn't count),
By that logic, Russia intervening into their former colony federal district of Ukraine also doesn't count.

There was UN mandate (approved by Russia as well) for Libya, though. I think we've discussed it here before.
