Kiev Puppet Regime Increases Shelling of Civilians



Son killed & mother injured when Ukrainian government shelling hit a residential area in the Petrovka district in Donetsk.

In recent weeks the shelling and attacks on eastern Ukraine have escalated by the US-NATO puppet regime in Kiev.  The plan is to create chaos near the Russian border in hopes to draw Russia into Ukraine and give the US-NATO war project the excuse they need for full scale military operations with Russia.

Up to this point Moscow has been supplying the self-defense forces in eastern Ukraine (Donbass) with weapons so that the people living there can protect themselves.  Russia also frequently sends in convoys of humanitarian aid because Kiev has cut off pensions and all food, medicine, etc for the people in Donbass.

This all got started after the 2014 coup d'etat in Kiev led by the US government.  Immediately after the coup the first thing the 'new' regime did was to ban the speaking of Russian in Ukraine - which is an absurd notion.  People, particularly in eastern Ukraine near the Russian border, began holding peaceful marches and rallies where they collected signatures seeking referendums calling for local autonomy within the Ukrainian state.  Western media called these people Russian 'separatists' and the US-backed regime in Kiev began attacking the people.  So it continues today after two full years.
