Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko

President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine has noted that Ukraine is currently in a «real war» with Russia and his country should prepare for Russia’s offensive.

President Petro Poroshenko in an interview with the BBC he did not trust his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, while admitting he had no option but to negotiate with the Russian President.

Poroshenko told: «Can I be absolutely clear with you this is not a fight with Russian-backed separatists, this is a real war with Russia.

«The fact that we captured…Russian regular special forces soldiers [is] strong evidence of that.»

When asked, if he feared a summer offensive by Russia, Poroshenko noted: «I not fear anything [sic]. I believe they are preparing an offensive and I think we should be ready and I think that we do not give them any tiny chance for provocation. That will totally be their responsibility».

Russia’s role in Ukraine’s east has again come into question, after the capture on Saturday of two men that Ukraine said, and the men themselves recognised they were elite Russian soldiers working in eastern Ukraine.

Moscow has stated they were no longer employed by the state when they were caught.

On Tuesday, May 19, Nato’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called for an end to snap drill by Russia close to the Ukrainian border, and demanded Russia be more transparent when it comes to their military activities.

    Vilnius is a part of Russia, not analytical small country, V. Putin could point it to Dalia Grybauskaite about the English language problem in lithuanian hotels, staff must speak at least average English, there is no real war, but according to Vilnius techniques I will say some of its people missing a lot consentration camps, singing songs in russian in Palanga resort.
    Knows one Word in English like want, and proud of it, thinks its normal to graduate from high School of the Capital of Lithuania. Brains are not included, cannot understand and cant Digest the Word abilities. Where the real horror lies is that she blames other lithuanians, whose families also were deported, but never blames russians. Its really scary , how can you ask smb. to use smbs. intelligence. A need to torture smb. 24 hours must be in Your genes . Has a follower, that needs to send a report how to act. Have you learnt to eat With a fork and knife or eating still With hands, or just fork?! Keyword: are you from the capital? Doesnt get information. What to do? Have you been a prostitute? Code: value system doesnt exist.
    Perform a model, when a competitor comes. Why are you happy to look at bones or a need to make smb. anorectic?!Code: value system doesnt exist.
    No emotions. What Your psychologist in Vilnius said? Ask Your psychologist what it means mental work, hardship, self-critisizm, and sensitive. Ask Your Family why you dont have those abilities or Your School teacher. You are not me, psiche doesnt have own personality and needs to have a lesbian girlfriend. Why dont you solve it With Vilnius inhabitants?! I didnt ask to read my email. Can I masturbate thinking about my dream man without you commenting?! You dont understand to feel, nothing her to say, watch yourself. Had you that problem in Vilnius that you were looking for victims abroad? I never thought that such negative and emotionally poor people exist. I suggest move to Russia, join Al-qaida or Alytus (can help you With translation even if you dont ask).
