September 9, 2014.
War, not the expected peace arrived at the doorstep of Great Britain and France when they gave up Czechoslovakia to Hitler in 1938. War is happening right here at home and not in faraway Europe – the United States were harshly reminded about this at Pearl Harbor in 1942. War descended on Ukraine and thus is now much closer to Paris and Berlin, because Europe and the US haven't supported Georgia in 2008. War showed up in the homes of Dutch, British, French, German, Australian families because Europe and the US weren't courageous enough to lend a helping hand to Ukraine in 2014. It is impossible to run away from war and overwhelming aggression, it is impossible to buy yourself off. The war will catch up with you if you don't stand up to it with utmost determination.

September 8 – The essence of Minsk agreements: a third of the occupied territory of Donbas will receive a special status, but they remain a part of Ukraine (more likely only formally), – said the leader of the "Petro Poroshenko Party Block" and an Advisor to the President Yuriy Lutsenko. According to Lutsenko, this area could be isolated and surrounded with engineering constructions. Thus Putin has achieved what he has been planning – legalization of another "transnistria". Crimea is not mentioned in Minsk agreements. Does this mean that Donbas and Crimea has been betrayed by everyone – our leaders and our allies?
