Provocations in eastern Ukraine

Pro-russian demonstrators existing mainly of Russian citizens and former Ukrainian berkut have caused a lot of disturbance in the cities of Kharkiv, Donetsk and Luhansk. During the evening of 6th of April the demonstrators captured the state buildings in Kharkiv and Donetsk and the headquarter of SBU in Luhansk. SBU is the Ukrainian security service and in charge of counterintelligence activity and combatting terrorism. At the moment the police in the three mentioned cities are dived into to camp, loyal to Ukraine- or Russia, but the main force of the police are still loyal to Ukraine.

All evidence is pointing toward that this is an russian secret service operation similar to the one we saw in Crimea and this exact operation was performed in these cities during the revolution and even though pro-russian provocateurs where arrested no formal accusations where made. The goal of this operation is the same as in Crimea, meaning the provocateurs wants to create instability and “threats” toward Russian citizens of Ukraine, so Putin can motivate a military campaign to save Russians in Ukraine.

  1. The people are upset at their government and I personally do not blame them for being so angry. They want change….positive change. I discuss this similar issue over at:

    We can not blame them for their actions if they have a government who will not change things in positive manners.

    • There are some issues that needs to be fixed, and one of them is that Ukrainian government needs to visit eastern Ukraine instead of letting the SBU and police do all the hard work for them. Second is that they need to handle the Russian provocateurs with strength, right now they are not doing anything. And that is why we see these provocations grow in strength.
