With Russian men and materiel flowing into Ukraine to perpetuate that nation's civil war, Putin's impatience for a casus belli may soon reach the breaking point.
Amid massive public opposition and behind-the-scenes globalist scheming, the new regime in Ukraine took a major step toward surrendering the nation’s sovereignty to the Brussels-based European Union super-state. In exchange for giving up self-government and independence to the unelected, perpetually expanding EU bureaucracy that now dominates policy across the 28-member bloc, Ukraine will be able to sell its exports without paying tariffs. Meanwhile, armed conflict continues to rage across wide swaths of Eastern Ukraine as the death toll rises.
The head of NATO said Russia is promoting the anti-fracking agenda to protect its natural gas interests, while anti-fracking groups denied the charges.
With the Ukrainian army slowly prevailing over insurrectionists in eastern Ukraine, overt Russian intervention may soon become a reality.
