“The Russian are slow starters but they drive fast”
famous Russian proverb
Russia has been considering to recognize the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (LPR and DPR), as independent states, Vladimir Putin said during an extraordinary session of the Security Council.
The Russian President noted that the decision will be revealed very soon.
Years of sabotaging of the Minsk agreement by the Kiev regime and its foreign sponsors have forced Moscow to go forward with this move.
According to Russian officials, aggressive actions of NATO and the Kiev regime clearly demonstrated that they aim to destabilize the situation in Europe, destroy the self-proclaimed republics and harm the Russian-speaking population of the region. Furthermore, a large part of DPR and LPR residents already requested Russian citizenship.
In these conditions, Moscow had no option but to protect DPR and LPR civilians from the permanent pressure and aggression.
Several hours earlier, Russia’s FSB and border guards eliminated a group of Ukrainian saboteurs. The Russian military revealed that two combat vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and five saboteurs entered the territory of Russia. They engaged Russian forces in clashes and then were eliminated.
Russian forces suffered no casualties. This became one of the latest in a series of violations of Russian border (in form of shelling) by Ukrainian forces.
Moscow have ended the phase of ‘soft approach’ towards anti-human actions of Ukraine and its foreign sponsors, mainly the US. So, now it is time for active actions.
