In spite of all the evidence from various sources such as Satellite Observations and Eyewitness Reports with pictures, Putin systematically denies any direct intervention by Russia, or Russian troops or armaments, in Ukraine !
Either Putin is a liar or he no longer knows what is going on ! For a Head of State to be like this is serious and worrying !
The reality is that Putin is still clinging to his dream of forcing Ukraine to return to "Russian Communist Domination", whether it is by hook or by crook !
If Putin could ever conquer and recover Ukraine, would this satisfy him and his dreams ? There are several other former satellite countries already in the European Union like Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Hungary.... !
All these countries and others know what life was like behind the Iron Curtain before the Berlin Wall was breached in 1989 ! Ukraine was also liberated and became independent and had a taste of freedom !
Should all these former communist countries not send a strong message of support to President Poroshenko of Ukraine in his fight against Russia's support of Rebels ? He wants UN support but this will take time. Could these former communist countries not send some armed support now ? Russia is already actively destroying Eastern Ukraine.
