Petro Poroshenko has admitted that the 2015 ceasefire in Donbass, which he negotiated with Russia, France and Germany as president of Ukraine, was merely a distraction intended to buy time for Kiev to rebuild its military.
“We had achieved everything we wanted,” he said of the peace deal. “Our goal was to, first, stop the threat, or at least to delay the war – to secure eight years to restore economic growth and create powerful armed forces.”
He cited Sun Tzu’s stratagems as an inspiration for the deception. Winning a war does not necessarily require winning military engagements, Poroshenko said, calling the deal he made a win for Ukraine in that regard.
Poroshenko failed to be reelected in a landslide vote for President Volodymyr Zelensky, who promised voters that, unlike his predecessor, he would secure peace in Donbass.

eagerly awaiting their deaths. In addition to all of the totally unnecessary Ukrainian civilian deaths. No, wait – someone tell me why THEY are telling me that. The real reason ain’t pretty. Or even decent. A terrible man, and another terrible man to take his place by lying. How fucking American is that!
Not to mention that now, in the US, Nazis are GOOD! What the fuck.

I doubt they planned it to start in 2021, though, probably several years earlier during the Hillary Clinton Administration which, thankfully, will never be a thing.

Sociopathic lunacy abounds in the world these days, among the ruling class.

$45 Billion US dollars we serve up on a silver platter? That’s the only thing that backs up the $US dollar… the war machine. Any country will do as the tax base continues to back it up.
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

I hope once this special military operation is over, this bit of history is recorded accurately, including the genocides in the Donbas and Odessa.
