#ukraine : the ceasefire may come to an end soon

this is what a Russian commentator says

"current polls suggest that “there will be almost no pro-Russian deputies” in the Verkhovna Rada to be elected on October 26.  And Putin needs to achieve his goals in the next few months before the situation in the occupied territories becomes “truly catastrophic” and potentially explosive for Russia itself.

 

Given that confluence of events, the Moscow commentator says, it is likely that “soon Russian forces and separatists will step up their military activities in an attempt to defeat the Ukrainian army, to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the parliamentary elections, and to provoke in Ukraine a political crisis” that will end either by making the current regime more willing to make concessions or by bringing to power a pro-Moscow government.

 

Given the approach of winter and the reluctance of the EU to put its gas supplies at risk by a new round of sanctions, Putin has every reason to move quickly. And “if Russian forces and their allies in the Donbas do not achieve real successes, perhaps, they will attack along the entire line of the border

and later today one of the rebel leaders said that the ceasefire is over

while new pictures have emerged from Russian military transports to Ukraine

the elections are near and very clear, there will hardly be any prorussian elected, so Putin has nothing to win if the elections take place because he can't lose anything

so don't be surprised if we have some surprises in the coming week
