Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government to prepare a draft of the 2018-2025 state armaments programme by July 1, 2017, during a meeting in Novo-Ogarevo on Thursday.

SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): “Dear colleagues, good day. Today we will discuss the main financial and economic parameters of the state armaments programme for 2018-2025. In accordance with this programme, it is necessary to continue the massive technical re-equipment of the army and fleet.”

SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): “When preparing its financial parameters, it is necessary to keep in mind that the armed forces and other troops should be provided with modern weapons and vehicles, which will allow for the efficient provision of full-scale and solid security for Russia against potential military threats.”

US Army Trains Kiev,Ukrainian Soldiers -March 2016

Published on Apr 11, 2016

Ukraine is not a member of NATO, yet the US government sent US Soldiers from Germany to Ukraine to teach Ukrainian Soldiers how to observe, coach and train during military exercises.

In comments many links to other related to the US military engaged in war against Ukrainian population

[As a reminder, after two year investigation, 20,000 cases were opened and over 100,000 witnesses were questioned. In August, the Russia’s Investigative Committee and FSB have filed the first five court cases against individuals for war crimes in Ukraine. My guess is that after all these cases are heard in court and decisions are issued, the US government and the US military will be next to be sued in court for war crimes against Russian civilian population in Ukraine. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin called the Ukrainian’s military “a foreign legion,” emphasizing the illegitimate nature of the US occupation of Ukraine.

See, for example this rabidly racist and Russophobic blog Vice article about the the European and American mercenaries   Why American Right-Wingers Are Going to War in Ukraine

We all understand that these citizens of the US commit war crimes and genocide against Russians, and that it’s the US government that holds a full responsibility for these crimes. The US government has started paying to Iran for its crimes against Iranian people.  Next, the US will be paying to Russia for its crimes against the Russian people.] Scott

 

Donbass report by Oleksiy Zhuravko

This is a report by Oleksiy Zhuravko (Алексей Журавко) from Donbass. He requests that the video be shared so that the truth is out. That is why we are sharing it here.

Dear friends, I am currently in Donbass – a Ukrainian region torn apart by a civil war. Some of you have heard about the war here. Most of you haven’t. Those that have heard about it from the Western media know that evil Vlad Putin attacked these poor people – “RussiainvadedUkraine.”

However, all the people reporting about Russian troops are very far away from here, and haven’t provided any factual evidence of the so called “Russianagression“. So I, a person born with no legs and one arm, a former ombudsman for the disabled people of the Ukraine, came here, and on my little cart that I used to move around, actually dared to talk to locals and hear their stories (don’t be surprised if I get banned by Facebook for showing this Truth).

I ask you to spend just 4 minutes and watch this video about a man who lost his beautiful young wife and is left with a young disabled child because of Ukrainian shelling.

Killing and maiming is all the “democracy” Ukraine and its backers in the West are bringing to Donbass. Sometimes it seems that this struggle is hopeless… but if the world knows… if the world learns the Truth of what is going on here – we can end this war! We can end the suffering of these local, peaceful and hardworking people!
So I ask you, friends, please don’t look away. Please listen to this man’s story. Please hear it! Please share this video. Please help me and others like me get the Truth out to the world!
Oleksiy Zhuravko

PS: even if i, or someone else tagged you, please also share yourself, so all your friends and subscribers get notified.
