It seems like they are not only preparing to continue civil war, they also are preparing to face against Russia, it's a shame, because the most probably is that all this began due to the influence of USA, Ukraine is being used as Poland, Estonia and all those countries on the NATO who want to take out against Russia, the nowadays situation on there looks like that period between approximately 1933-1939 when all implicated countries were preparing for WWII.

This is intense. These guys mean business. I haven't been exactly updated about the civil war in Ukraine. Although with Russia, war isn't exactly something new.

It makes me so nervous to see that they're making this much preparation for another war, whether it be a civil war in the country or a war against Russia, which they would probably lose if this happens. My heritage is mostly Russian and Ukrainian, so whenever I hear of them fighting or at war with each other I get very anxious and upset to know that there's a good chance that I have family members killing other family members. It's enough to think about how they did it back in history, but I wish it wasn't still happening.

As much as I don't want to encourage this "proxy war" to continue, this is a much better bargain than run the risk of Ukraine surrendering to the Russian-backed rebels. I can't, for the life of me, let Russia win this war. Other countries are starting to put pressure on Russia through blockades but Putin is obstinate. Unless he stops supporting the rebels, Ukraine's military investments will continue to be justified.

Seems like they really want to face Russia and not be stomped over like they were before. Also, the new measures show a new face that we never thought of Ukraine. This country has been through so many in the past years and you can only say, it wants to push Russia back to their part of the world with all means necessary.

Unfortunately I feel like it's only a matter of time until Russia invades Ukraine again. It's sad because I feel like just as Ukraine started to get back on their feet and establish themselves as a true independent country, they're probably going to get absorbed back into Russia yet again. I mean, it's only been like twenty years or so since they gained their independence, right? They deserve to keep their independence and be a country separate from Russia.

I doubt they will be able to absorb Ukraine like they did with the eastern part. Even with rigged elections and military actions they will not be able to fully get Ukraine. I'm pretty sure USA has interests in Europe and will not allow such actions to go unnoticed. Just look at the recent austerity measures for Russia. I deeply hope Ukraine will keep it's independence and be well off without Russian interventions.

Well I don't know why almost all the people on earth thinks that the Russians are the bad ones, while it is obvious that all this crisis is somehow because of the US Government intervention, they are only pushing against Russia using their neighbor countries, it's unfair that everyone attacks Russia, they are not the ones who have military bases through all the world like USA do, so who are the aggressors? United States and the NATO with all their foreign military bases, or the Russian, who only are trying to protect their lands and sovereignty, I hope people meditate about this, and try to investigate by themselves and realize that the evil comes from the US government.

I hope I am reading something like this and that country receives trucks of medical supplies or food or building materials for new houses instead of armoured vehicles that will be used for wars. Where else will they use it for? It is nerve wrecking just thinking of soldiers and innocent people's lives at the forefront. The stories that my grandparents and aunties and uncles told about WWII were never pleasant. And the trauma, lifetime emotional scars that people involved go through are never really forgotten if not totally overcome from. Thus, there will never be winners, only losers in wars. I hope there will be no wars at all for whatever reasons; not worth all the sufferings and bloodshed.

I hope this does not represent that start of a drastic escalation and spread of the current civil war in the region. While I comprehend the need for the Ukraine to defend itself against aggression, I worry about the consequences of the whole affair.

So far Russia has not backlashed against the new austerity measures but time will tell. I'm afraid we will see some drastic actions taken in the near future as Russia is at the limit of it's nerves.

Russia is always part of a major war so this isn't really something new. But i feel you, it sucks when your country or heritage is involved in such cases.
