BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Ukrainian military has sent reinforcements to their eastern border with Russia, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Thursday.

“…military units from the Ukrainian armed forces have been redeployed to the most dangerous directions along the entire line of our border [with Russia] in order to strengthen defensive capabilities”, Poroshenko said, as quoted by Sputnik News Agency.

This move by Poroshenko comes just 24 hours after the Russian Foreign Ministry warned that the Ukrainian military was preparing a new offensive in the disputed Donbass region.

In November, the Ukrainian president signed a decree to impose martial law in regions bordering Russia, as well as the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, following a clash in the Kerch Strait.

Ukraine has every right to station its military anywhere it wants within its territory. That includes the hostile neighbour Russia.

And is there anyone incl Russia living up to it? There is no doubt Russians illegally have military there. Those in Russia testifying to it, are now in prisone or “disappeared”.

The n.a.t.o.should send tens of thousands of undercover military personnel to the Ukraine to help repel the Russian operatives from the ukraine. They want to seize all the ukrainean territory surrounding the azov sea.
