Map Story Of Ukraine Conflict

Take Me To Post Comment Form


why all the fighting in the ukraine....from what started as an internal disagreement turned into a total breakdown of rule and order....

this obvious loss of control over the far away eastern region, long ignored by kiev politicians and feeling very upset about conditions in their cities...

these feelings gave rise to the nascent prorussian proclivities of many of eastern ukrainian residents...now, russians from across the border in rostov-on-don came across to help...

or in many cases to take over the leadership of these groups...bringing locals who were more than happy to join in the battles....it seems because of their long history russians and ukrainians have little liking for each other...

so while ukraines government, or what was left of it, dissolved into total absolute chaos the donetsk and luhansk areas decided to become actual breakaway republics...see Map 1 for the size of the rebel held areas..

and the government of ukraine could do virtually nothing...officially at least...thus came the creation of the volunteer proukraian battalions of fighters who headed east to do battle in a very much uncoordinated fashion with the various rebel groups...such as the donbass battalion

and why was the malaysian airlines plane shot down...well, look at Map 0, which shows the planes route, which took it right over the most heavily contested area of eastern ukraine.....

a day before a ukrainian warplane and cargo plane had both been shot down in the disputed territoy.,..and on that day there were many reports of more ukraiian warplaners ovber the eastern skies...

and several people advanced the possibility that putins plane returning from brasil was attempted to be shot down by both the ukrainian government and the rebel groups,...who knew if successful that would a huge new can of worms...

then look at Map 2, which shows the rebel territory and which shows the area of eastern ukraine which is historically and currently a majority of russian speaking peoples...

why is russia feeling so anxious to get control of this territory...even with western europes leaders telling them to stay out why are they so determined to assume control of that region...look at Map 3, which shows how much of the western area they lost upon the USSSR's collapse

then look at Map 4, which shows how the ukraine was the key to controlling their southern fleets access to a fresh water port..as well as huge oil pipelines which were a major money source they lost when ukraine declared independence and which they would control again if this are fell under their control...

putins logic is simple...Map 5 shows how he can reestablish control by land across the ukrainian border territory down to the city of mariopol and restore these areas to russia...

by stating he is simply bringing these people back into the motherlands fold and giving them protection from mistreatment by the ukrainian nationalists...who are portrayed as fascists and worse... he can gain much more support across russias huge eastern expanse...

why is that necessary...well, it has been discovered that many of the russian army units either being deployed in the ukraine or resigning and then voluntarily traveling to the ukraine have been from that area,....

and with the very public display of them by ukrainian authorities there has begun to be discussion within russia of why their soldiers are there in the first place....

the rebels and the russian government have taken to calling the area by what is a very real historic designation....Map 6 shows the boundaries of the various historical russian areas....including new russia...and proves that this is not some propagandistic name.....giving their dreams and claims some historical legitimacy.....

obama has stated we, the us, will not send troops...nato, of which ukraine is not a member, cannot really justify sending nato forces into bolster the ukrainian forces....although ukraines nations that border to its west are justifiably concerned about russians apparent expansionist tendencies

germany, who is both russias biggest exporter and importer, and who therefore has the most direct influence on putins actions....is being revelead to be very wary of direct military involvement on their part

the forces of the rest of the european union are unlikely to do anything without the involvement of germany in financial political and military leadership roles...

the ukraiian government troops meanwhile are now being sent reeling by the freshly reinvigorated rebels...with have admitted they have both new and much more modern war equipment...

and rebel leaders have publicly admitted the presence on the battlefield of thousands of so called russian volunteers...this was said earlier by nato and european leaders to be the tripping point...

putin has once again called their bluff and has apparently been correct in his reading of their hesitancy to greatly expand those forces actually involved in the conflict....

so what happens next...i see no reason for putin to stop his plan...but he has publicly ordered the rebels to open up a humanitarian corridor to let the ukrainian forces they have have surrounded in several key town south of donetsk return to their families...

this is very wise for putin doesnt want to create any more public support for the battles raging across southeast ukraine by having these ukrainian soldiers killed by prorussian or russian forces...

with obama out of the way and germanys angela merkel very carefully dancing around any comittment to military force putin has no one else to worry about...britain and canadas military chiefs are very unhappy but those governments have their own issues closer at home to deal with...

france italy and spain....hahahahaha....portugal and greece.....hohohohoh.....everyone of those countries is bankrupt.....some would say in many ways....

the ukraine held a big independence day celebration with all kinds of new shiny military hardware.....when the soldiers actually fighting the battles in the east have old outdated junk......

id guess theyre wanting to convince europe to come stop the russians...and keep their real forces for controlling what land and the people they have left over under their control once the the battles are over....


UPDATE: sounds like i was right....

putin has now made veiled threat, referencing russians huge nuclear arsenal, stating that ukraines siege of donetsk and luhansk are like the nazi's siege of stalingrad, and says "dont mess with russia"....but he also says russia is not going to get into a large scale conflict.....
