Furthermore, his promise to "attack and liberate" the land and resumption of the "anti-terrorist" operations, means civil war is back on (and what appeasrs to be martial law) as he explains Armed Forces, National Guard, the State Border Guard Service, Security Service received appropriate instructions.

Full Poroshenko Statement (via Google Translate):

Address of the President of Ukraine Poroshenko

Dear compatriots!

On the twenty-second hour of Monday 30 June expired validity of a unilateral ceasefire.

Within the plan of peaceful settlement of the situation in the Donbas this step was first initiated on June 20.

June 27 Ukraine continued for an additional three days.

For ten days we have demonstrated the Donbass, Ukraine, to the world their commitment to peacefully settle the conflict triggered externally.

Residents of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, we demonstrated goodwill Ukrainian authorities. 

Hardworking and peaceful people, which is the vast majority of the citizens of Donetsk and Lugansk Oblast, feel our sympathy, love and respect. They saw a sincere willingness Kyiv ignore their special opinions and specific interests. And they realized that their safety is our top priority.

Become even more international support for Ukraine. It was during the ceasefire I signed the Association Agreement and the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area with the EU.

However, with a unique opportunity to implement the peace plan is not implemented. This happened because of the criminal actions of militants. They have publicly declared their unwillingness to support the peace plan as a whole and particularly the ceasefire. Defiantly, more than a hundred times, violated the armistice regime.

The political leadership of the separatist demonstrated unwillingness and inability to control the actions of their departments and the terrorist gangs of looters.

Annulment of the Federation Council for permission to enter the Russian troops in Ukraine was positive, but symbolic. We did not wait for concrete steps to de-escalation of the situation. Including in terms of strengthening control abroad.

Despite all this, the world was, is and will be my goal. Changing only the tools to achieve it. 

June 30 evening, a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine. After discussing the situation, I, as Commander-in-Chief, has decided not to pursue a unilateral cease-fire regime. 

Protection of the territorial integrity of Ukraine, safety and life of civilians requires not only defensive but also offensive operations against terrorist militants.

Armed Forces, National Guard, the State Border Guard Service, Security Service received appropriate instructions.

In achieving the objectives of the present protection of territorial integrity are no longer limited ceasefire.

We will attack and liberate our land. Non-renewal of the ceasefire - is our response to terrorists, rebels, looters. To all those who are making fun of civilians. Who paralyzing the work of regional economy. Who plucks the payment of salaries, pensions, stipends. Who undermines and destroys railroad plumbing. Who has deprived people of normal, peaceful life. 

The Armed Forces of Ukraine, National Guard, other units will not allow themselves to use force against peaceful people. They never beat on residential neighborhoods.

Ukrainian soldiers and guards will risk his own life, just not to expose threats to women, children and elderly men. All those living in the land of Donbass and does not in the hands of illegal weapons.

This age-old chivalrous nature Ukrainian army.

For us - and responsibility for every supporter peaceful life that do not bring God can break off during a military or anti-terrorist operation.

This requires us to extraordinary adjustedness every movement operations.

I appeal to every resident of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, asking to be taken with the understanding of my decision. Please become allies in return for security Donbass.

So, you can not resist the bandits physical strength. But your willpower and fortitude, your civil disobedience to the so-called "people's republics," the intolerance and contempt for those who took the path of banditry, looting and terror, bring the day when your homes, your streets back lasting peace .

Everyone who stood in the way of armed resistance to lawful authority, but realizing that mistake and wants to correct it, as president, I guarantee FAILURE to justice. Condition One - voluntarily lay down their arms.

Our peace plan as a strategy for Ukraine and Donbas, remains in force. And disarmament. And decentralization. And free use of the Russian language. And the restoration of housing by the state. And together with the EU program to create new jobs. And even before the ceasefire, we are ready to return at any moment. When we see that all parties adhere to performing the basic points of the peace plan. What gunmen freed the hostages. What and beyond the eastern border of red light on fire for saboteurs and arms supplier, and for adherence to the OSCE border monitors.

Dear compatriots!

The road to peace was somewhat more complex than desired. Do not want to embellish reality. It will be hard and difficult.


We, more than ever, we should unite to protect Ukraine. It requires dedication and discipline not only at the front but in the rear.


But there was not any war, after which there occurred a to peace.


So happens this time.

Glory to Ukraine!

Now we await the Russian response; the USA's retaliatory sanctions, and Putin's boomerang... with all eyes on Austria and Bulgaria (as the Chess game just got larger)

06.30 1600 ET BREAKING NEWS: Ukraine Ends Ceasefire in East Declares Martial Law in Donbas Region


This is not going to end well. Obama is trying to drag us into this conflict. It is the stupidest bullshit I've seen since GW Bush dragged us into the Iraq invasion.


And now Obamussolini has sent even more combat troops into Iraq too!

The gas lines will be attacked and it will soon be cut off to Europe.  Over in the middle east all hell is breaking loose.   


Perfect cover for the great reset.  It is here.

Well of course he's gonna because Master Obi-bamma has decreed it so...

Almost all cease fires are occasions of resupply and re-arm and re-configure troop emplacements.

One should presume the rebels used the time as well as the regular army.

There was no cease fire in real. None.

Kyiv never intended stopped kept shelling cities but demands other side should....

Nice for Putin to have those reserves tide Russia over - noticeably unlike the West.

So what happens when they start to look to some of their historic lands to the west?

Unfortunate if the fighting escalates.

My only hope is that POROSHENKO dies as a result of his escalation.  Fat chance.

I know, I think he has made a major miscalculation and/or someone he is listening too is a moron.

The "cease fire" offer was a joke. To wit-

You can put down your weapons and go home.  Unless we say you did something wrong.  In which case we are going after you.

No sit-down to discuss the issues, just straight to the artillary and helocopter gun ships.

This, after Vicky Kagan-Nuudleman threatend fire and brimstone if the previous elected president used any force to defend himself and his government from the mob of CIA/Mossad trained usurpers who eventually over ran Kiev.

Think it has anything to do with Gazprom pipleline shut off plan B? gas is bullish!!

Well said Cosmos. What we are seeing is a NATO invasion of East Ukraine. The goal is to liberate resources for western corporations, some of whom have already bought coal and steel enterprises in the east. This Kiev proclaimation of war is a sick joke and so full of lies and brainless shit that it hardly merits comment. No other response is possible by the East but the gun.

Jack, do you just do this for fun, or are you on Putin's payroll?

Its not 'their' (Russian Federation) land, its recognized by the world as the soverign nation of Ukraine.

Putin's paid propaganda army is actively spamming ZH and other sites:

"Vladimir Putin uses an invisible army of social media propagandists, in addition to conventional media, to support his narrative of an out-of-control Ukraine, to spread fabrications of atrocities by Ukrainian extremists, and to unleash destabilizing rumors on east Ukraine." (Forbes, May 11, 2014)

"within a few minutes of my posting of just about any Russia or Ukraine article on, the trolls flood the comments section with insulting, cajoling, combative, and ad hominem attacks, overwhelming the possibility of any meaningful dialog. I am not alone. The Guardian readers’ editor reports 40,000 comments a day by an “orchestrated pro-Kremlin campaign” of pro-Russia trolling on Ukraine stories."

Ukrainian Facebook posting: “We have not killed one Russian, we did not take their land or introduce troops on their territory, did not grab their resources. We simply became a free people for one week. Is this enough for Russia to declare war on us with a unanimous decision and the full approval of the Russian people! Why do they hate us? Because of freedom? Because of different thinking?

"The highly professional poll shows an overwhelming majority of Ukrainian citizens want Russia only as a friendly neighbor with open borders and no visas. Some 12.5 percent want Russia and Ukraine as one country, reaching a high of twenty percent in the East and 25 percent in the Crimean south. An unoccupied Ukraine would not voluntarily join the corrupt and dysfunctional Russia."

"Yes, nationalists were among the bravest of the Maidan demonstrators, but they constituted a small minority...the latest polls show ex-heavyweight boxing champion, Vitaly Klitshko,  in the lead with the two right-wing candidates polling collectively  less than five percent – scant evidence of  an impending skin-head Nazi takeover." "There are no incidents of Ukrainian-on-Russian ethnic violence. There are no cases of Russian speakers in the east hiding in their cellars from the latest Ukrainian pogrom. Ukrainians do not feel hatred towards Russians."

I predict massive Russian artillery strikes and missile hits to break up any large mechanized calvary formations.  This is a repeat of the Battle of Kursk, the Russians had a huge artillery barrage to throw off the German offensive just before it got started.

The Russians have nothing to lose.  Nobody is paying or buying their gas in the west right now and the Euros have blocked the South Stream pipeline, last time I checked economic sanctions are grounds for a declaration of war.

I predict floods and poor crops.

If Putin has been playing chess like many believe then he will have some surprises for the opposition.  If he is really playing chess he will have his follow up steps ready for the reaction he gets.

It's been said time was on Putin's side.  Now they have taken that away.  He will have reactions in the ME as well if he is the master player.

His opposition will not relent, he will have war or a slow decline.  Without a good response he will have to firm up his borders and suffer a prolonged cold war that will include all types of sanctions and NATO fortified on his western border.  Once EastUk falls they will retake Crimea.

A new phase may be beginning.

flapdoodle's picture

With a Russia actively supporting its defence, Crimea is almost unassailable, and to boot would require a massive DDay style landing... good luck with that.

401-Kulak's picture

Crimeans have been gob smacked with 300% inflation for food, energy,and water since Russia took over.  Russia has no chance of holding Crimea with a ferry based economy.

Yeah, I know - like only a small fraction of the usual tourists showed up this year. Vam pizdez, Volkodav. Crimea will be either Ukrainian, or Tatar, or deserted.

>>>Once EastUk falls they will retake Crimea.

East Ukraine may be left to the (non-existent) mercy of Kiev-Galicia, but there is no way short of nuclear war that Crimea will wind up in NATO's sphere of influence.

Repeat of Battle of Kursk?   ignorant statement

Try another perspective.

Right now it's warm, so domestic demand is down anyway. South Stream is for the future, when it will all have blown over and/or the lines redrawn.

In due course, come autumn (let alone winter), if the lines are shutdown, then Ukraine might find it's EU "frends" less than thrilled with their would-be vassals having caused them to have an eneergy crisis. I've already noticed articles here in UK softening us up for low voltage electricity, gas interruption and - hilariously - that prices must go up for our own good. That's in the relatively non-dependant UK, mind, not one of dependant continentals.

Thus, therefore, a big western economic hiccup if we're lucky. Meltdown if not - e.g short time working, transport disruption (all those nice clean electric trains running on gas generated 'leccy), etc. Good luck to Draghi et al fibbing and printing their way out of that one.

Thus also lots of very cold people across Europe, who will not be at all happy.

Then, theres the pissed-off Ukrainian squaddies posted to foxholes in some frozen part of East Ukraine so they can shoot their erstwhile brethren. Are they really going  to stick with that? I anticipate a major breakdown of the Ukerainian ability to wage Nato's war for it.

Putin does not need to roll his tanks, he just needs Obrainless and co. to carry on as they are now. I suspect he knows this.

Coco beans in Ukrain are also down today.  I doubt those residents of Donetsk and Lugansk care for it anymore.  I heard Nuland is handing out Hershey's kisses.

Cue more pipeline explosions. Pipelines that Russia no longer cares about.

Regardless of who's running this shitshow, it looks like only natural resource extractors with nukes (and I don't mean shale resources) are even remotely safe, and everyone else is circling the drain.
