• Of course, the Russians and Putin are lying, and USA is only misinformi

    The problem with Kramatorsk is that it is, like Dnipro, a crossroads and a rail hub for the potential receipt of hundreds of millions of dollars of US weapons to be distributed to Ukrainians in Eastern Ukraine..
    Certainly, the depot is also a congregation spot for refugees now fleeing East Ukraine.
    In fact, in any wartime strategic offensive rail transportation is a major target.
    Ukrainian government advised refugees to use rail system to flee, but Russians would certainly think rail is being used to deliver weapons.

    It was revealed that the Lusitania was carrying about 173 tons of war munitions for Britain, which the Germans cited as further justification for the attack. The United States eventually protested the action, and Germany apologized and pledged to end
    unrestricted submarine warfare.

    This certainly places the refugees in a predicament, and the intent seems to be to force Ukrainians to tie up resources to give refugees a safe route out by foot as transportation by rail would be judge too treacherous for a civilian. The Russians may be
    in process of preventing all rail traffic in East Ukaine while offensive going on.

    Certainly will be a stink as to how to evacuate civilians without bringing in war supplies and extra manpower.

    It is a damn war, and . . . shall we consider how close both sides are to reaching an agreement
    Seriously, the peace agreement requires a US negotiator as well as the Russians and the Ukrainian. US is supplying arms, the sanctions, and controls NATO. Without US making the necessary agreements concerning arms, sanctions and NATO, how is it even
    possible to do any serious peace negotiations?

    There is very high probability that this war will go on until next President is inaugurated, and like with Reagan and Iran, Trump can boast on bringing the conflict with Russia to a better state.
    Ask Trump what to expect, and yes, out of this, US gets Trump back with all the associated issues. US is really governed by fascist capitalism and hegemonic ambitions, and not a true democracy at all, anyway. However, fascism and capitalism are but
    symptoms of human culture so have the good and evil characteristics of our present day human knowledge and mass behavior.
    And the beat goes on, as we observe.
