I'll keep this brief. After launching the anti terrorist operation, Ukraine has taken over a couple the towns/cities captured in Donetsk. Within a couple of days, Kiev will most likely steam roll the rest of what RT calls "Russian Self Defense Units", lolz. Bad news, militants have captured a dozen more towns.

Anyways, Russia is outraged and is making accusations about Ukraine. Stepping up troop presence. All the arguments made by Russia are pointless, as most intelligence agencies have already confirmed Russia was aiding the rebels.

Russia's GDP growth has fallen over 50%, and is expected to negate into the negatives. Who knows what will happen with the next round of sanctions (expected by the end of the week, but its very likely, that this will send the Russian economy into a downfall. For a nation that never recovered the lost growth from the recession, they must be weary of this.

Now is the time to be most tense. Russia's outlook is not looking good, but I'm happy to let you guys into the good news. An invasion doesn't seem likely anymore. Russia lost billions on the sanctions and securing Crimea. They literally don't have the funds for any large scale military action. This is not saying it wont happen though.

Update: Russia accused the US of being behind the attacks. They threatened military force as well. I like this quote from the article, which I brought up earlier.

Putin said that if the authorities in Kiev had used the army in eastern Ukraine, it would be a very serious crime against their own people.

Yeah right. Just sit down and die.
