Russia attacks Ukraine +++ Sharp reactions in the West

Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin has officially ordered the deployment of Russian troops in foreign forces in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions in the conflict with Ukraine. This was announced by the Kremlin in Moscow on Thursday. In doing so, Putin responded to a written request from the heads of the People’s Republics of Luhansk and Donetsk to help prevent attacks by the Ukrainian military. Putin had written about the possibility of military intervention.

“I have decided to launch a special military operation,” Putin said in a televised address on Thursday morning. “Your goal is to protect people who have been subjected to abuse and genocide for eight years.”

Russia blames Ukraine. “Ukraine comrades who have recently become heavily armed, armed by a large number of states, are still under the illusion that they can achieve a military solution to the problem in Donbass with the blessings of their Western sponsors,” he said. Russia’s ambassador to the UN, Vasily Nebensja, addressed a short emergency meeting of the UN Security Council in New York on Wednesday evening (local time).

Nebenzia said that “military assistance” to the regions in eastern Ukraine was “a logical step in the actions of the Ukrainian regime.” Kiev incited separatists and fired. The purpose of the Russian military operation is not to invade Ukraine, but to protect the people from genocide. Meanwhile, according to NATO, those in the Donbass are “soldiers in a geopolitical game” for influence.
