Poroshenko Fails To Start New Conflict In Eastern Europe, Declares End Of Martial Law

IMAGE: twitter.com/poroshenko

On December 26, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko announced the end of a martial law, which was introduced in November after a clash between a Ukrainian naval ground and Russian coastal guards in the Black Sea, south of the Kerch Strait.

“Today, right now, at 2:00pm [local time], the martial law ends,” he said. “I would like to highlight that the Russian threat has not gone away.”

Since November, the Kiev regime has repeatedly claimed that Russia is about to invade Ukraine and openly prepared for the resumption of hostilities in the region by deploying additional troops and equipment in eastern and southern parts of the country. Top Ukrainian officials also threatened to stage fresh military provocations in the region, like a naval operation to break the nonexistent “Russian siege” on the Sea of Azov.

However, Poroshenko’s plans found little if no support among Western states, in particular in the United States. This became on of the main factors limiting the chances of a new hot conflict in the region.

    British ship didnt accept the invitation of poroshenko to sail in azov sea?

    Maybe his western allies pressured him to drop the martial law and just stick it to anti russian hysteria because more and more of ukranian are turning against them

      Gee, I was so looking forward to the charge of the New Light Brigade. That foul-mouthed teenager , Gavin, has a lot to answer for.

    This Fatso is in for a roasting, very soon. Sadly, as a veggie, I cannot appreciate this and can only enjoy Porky of Pigge cartoons:

    Nice to see they gave the troops new jackets without SS-symbols on them for the photo-shoot. Their uniforms are too uniform to be their working fighting gear. May Porky stay the boss man there forever because it will guarantee little EU involvement in the conflict.

    I wonder what Porky Porshenko’s New Year Resolution will be :)

    I wish SF would make up its mind, in one article they say that the US is pouring oil on the Ukrainian flames by giving Porky what he wants, in the next that Porky is getting the cold shoulder.

      Agreed. Hot war coming then hot war goes cold, meanwhile porky build up of troops continues.
