Where did Putin blame the USA? Or Ukraine? I heard there was an American ELINT aircraft in the area but that's not unusual.

Russian troops have been successful in Syria and Russia has said they are removing personnell but not how many and they will maintain a presence there for a long time to come as the Syrian government wants and allows them to do. Stop distorting stuff.

Here's what Putin said about the drone attacks.

TASS: Russian Politics & Diplomacy - Putin slams drone attack on Russian base in Syria as provocation

Quote:
"As for these attacks, they were undoubtedly prepared well. We know when and where these unmanned vehicles were handed over [to the attackers], and how many of them there were.

The unmanned aerial vehicles used in the attack on the Russian base in Syria were only disguised as homemade but were actually furnished with high-tech equipment, according to Putin.

I think the Russians are being a little paranoid here if they're going to point a finger at major actors from the west in this case. The tech those drones reportedly had can be acquired easily and the drones can be made in somebodies garage. I wouldn't put it past the CIA though either. If these do show up in Ukraine their paranoia may be justified.

I would hope otherwise for the Ukrainian people. We all know the reality though don't we? Even in America, bastion of justice and liberty, we know how it works. I won't be holding my breath.

Powerful people here get off easy. A lawyer named Buzbee was not punished for a DUI.

Again, very weak attempts at anti-Ukrainian propaganda. Which country coal comes from each month is not going to determine whether a nation succeeds outside of Kremlin control.

It's not a Russian source that wrote this. It's Newsweek.

Ukraine House Divided Counts The Cost Of Donbass Blockade

91% of Ukraines coal imports came from Russia. 70 million worth.

This whole mess is just insane, it's not democracy or good government. All because of some drunk veterans welding junk to railroad tracks? Porkochunko is a wimp. They should have sent in the police and cracked heads.

This whole thing never had to happen, even the people in the Donbas are suffering. Is this what a good government does? Is this what a legitimate government does?

You have no legs to stand on DKM. Just give it up.

So, will the Ukrops try again? They aren't going to get a better result that's for sure. The nutters may be better armed but from what I've seen and heard they aren't any smarter.

I seriously doubt they're going to heal the wounds in the near future either.
