TheVoiceOfJoyce Not since Hitler, has another country attempted to claim 15-18 % of another European nation by force. Putin prepares to annex 4 provinces in Ukraine today, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk and Luhansk. Russian Sam 300 missiles fired on a humanitarian corridor of cars, approaching a Russian checkpoint, murdering civilians outside Zaporizhzhia. This was a known established route for aide and relief, if Ukrainians were “willing” to become Russian citizens, why bomb this known convoy? Fierce fighting continues in the Luthansk region, in spite of the Referendums. Ukraine’s counteroffensive is not stopping, no matter what Putin declares. As predicted, Russia’s new recruits have been sent to the front lines and many are already in retreat and surrounded. The Ukrainians are not giving up territory and seek to turn Putin’s initial victory into defeat.

Putin is due to sign into law the annexations of four Ukrainian regions – Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk and Luhansk – in a signing ceremony in Moscow this afternoon.

At the same time Putin was due to announce the annexation of Ukrainian territory, his army was facing embarrassing defeat in the Donetsk region.

Ukrainian and Russian military bloggers said that Russian forces together with local “Luhansk People’s Republic” fighters were encircled in the city of Lyman. The town – a strategic railway junction – has been under Moscow’s control since May.
