“It is a new provocation against the territorial integrity of the free and democratic Ukraine by the well-known deviousness of the Russians.” As the first freely elected president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko sent word at a press conference, that three Russian aircraft carriers have been brought in to the port of embattled eastern Ukrainian Donetsk, each with 30 of the latest Russian bombers of type Sukhoi T-50.

“This is a clear violation of the Minsk agreements!” said Poroshenko in his speech. He appealed to the peaceful western community of states to finally stop the errant Ivan.

At the same time several Russian nuclear submarines are in arrival at the renegade Lugansk region. However, this could not be seen because they were under water. 

Furthermore, Moscow had set up an airlift of tanks in the separatist regions. Ten transport aircraft, Antonov 225 Mrija, are in use, that bring in another load of tanks every two hours.

The US government confirmed this information, asserting that they have clear satellite photographs, but they could not show them for reasons of security. Of course, publishing the satellite photos is hardly necessary, as anyone with some research in social networks can plainly confirm the information. Airlifting the tanks now makes clear why no tanks could be photographed crossing the border to Ukraine. In earlier conjectures of the western press a satellite failure was incorrectly blamed.

Poroshenko and NATO firmly assert that the world could now see clearly the aggression aimed at peaceful Ukraine, and that it was time to jointly oppose the Russian terror.
