Glasnost Gone

140,000.

That’s the startling number of times in 2018, when weapons have been fired in eastern Ukraine. Some 8,292 ceasefire violations recorded last wk, up 50% on prev week.

On the plus side, there’s been a large reduction in violations since the July 1st, reconstituted ceasefire. As the OSCE point out, this is not really a new ceasefire, just another occasion when both sides have again agreed to stop firing at one another. The reduction proves soldiers can be ordered not to fire.

Today’s Ukrainian military update.
Sadly, Russia’s attacks appear to be creeping back up. Last 24 hrs, Russian occupation forces launched 30 firing attacks. Mainly using grenade launchers, heavy machine guns & small arms, but some heavy weapons used. 1 Ukrainian soldier wounded.
