The separatist attack appears to have caught government forces off guard, and they were scrambling Wednesday to build up defenses. The offensive also adds to growing evidence that the rebels receive Russian support.

This proves that simple fact that Russian militia fighting very well

And Ukrainian Army is totally demoralised

Russian forces, she said, are being sent 30 miles (48 kilometers) inside Ukraine, without them or their families knowing where they are going.

Typically fairy tales - Russian Army can take Kiev in 2 days without delay

Ukrainian authorities dreaming about "Russian agression"

So it's just a Russian militia from Donetsk/Lugansk

As the Ukrainian Right Sector and Svoboda neo-Nazis continue to slaughter ethnic Russian civilians in the east of the country, the resistance will attract more sympathizers from abroad. It's time for portly Poroshenko to rein in these monsters, grant autonomy in the east and settle this peacefully before it's beyond control.

No, its time for the portly Proshenko to be thrown out of Kiev, and reinstall the past president to his office.

The news reports are now saying that these are Russian troops with two tank columns, so it would seem that Putin has doubled down and actually started an invasion. Things are going to get ugly now.

Kind of wondering at this point what kind of excuses the other countries signatory to the Ukraine nuclear disarmament disagreement have been making to Ukraine, and with what faces of pained embarrassment.

That's pretty wild man.

As long as the US decides to funnel "printed" money to Ukraine via the IMF, they're going to lie to the average. Always have! Always will!

variety of Russian accents from all over the country among the rebel fighters.

Lol. Russia is not Japan where is a lot of dialects and accents. Even there is more common in accent of between eastern ukrainians and russian in south of european part. From European part of Russia till Far East Russia speaks commonly the same, except people in Saint-Petersburg, which use sometimes another words. That should be reporters from AP with extra-linguistic skills in Russian.
