Extensive war crimes in Donbass committed by Poroshenko and his army of murderers from July 27 to August 14, 2014.
Well it about time Russia called the wests bluff and the fact that Kievs concerns had nothing to do with humanitarian intentions uless the region was finally under their control.
Moscow has accused Kiev of placing political interests above humanity, adding that it is confident it made the right decision to order a convoy with Russian humanitarian aid to proceed to the conflict zone without waiting for further Ukrainian permission.
The first trucks in the Russian humanitarian convoy have arrived in Lugansk, leaders of the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Lugansk confirmed to RIA Novosti.
Earlier, the LifeNews TV channel and Interfax agency also reported that several Russian vehicles carrying aid to the conflict zone made it to their final destination.
On Friday morning, several dozen Russian trucks crossed the Ukrainian border and started moving towards Lugansk, after Moscow ordered the convoy to proceed, without waiting for further permission from Kiev.
By 10:30 GMT on Friday, 145 vehicles from the 280-truck Russian aid convoy had crossed into Ukraine, reported RIA Novosti, citing the Ukrainian border guard service.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is not escorting the convoy.
Rosa Clemente, Talib Kweli, the Dream Defenders and many others had guns drawn on them by police in Ferguson during protests.
This is a harrowing account from Rosa Clemente who is down in Ferguson with a group of folks who she names in her Dispatches about what went down last night.. It’s important to compare her account with what’s being hailed in corporate media as some sort of major turning point…This sounds like a turning point in the wrong direction.. keep in mind about who is mouth piecing for the police..

August 30: Day of Remembrance for Comrade Andrew Brazhevsky
From Union Borotba (Struggle), Ukraine:
Comrades! On August 30, Andrew Brazhevsky would have turned 27 years old. But the fascist gangsters did not allow this to happen.
We call on all progressive, communist and anti-fascist organizations to hold actions in memory of the murdered Ukrainian anti-fascist.
We have no right to forget about him and his struggle!
Andrew Brazhevsky was born on August 30, 1987. He was one of the most active participants in the anti-fascist and Marxist movement in Odessa, and one of the founders of the Union Borotba (Struggle) in Odessa. He died at the hands of the neo-Nazis on May 2, 2014, as he tried to protect defenseless people in the House of Trade Unions.
Andrew was a very decent and honorable man; a true friend and comrade in the full sense of the word. He never drank nor smoked. In his free time he studied Marxist literature. He worked as a computer programmer in one of the firms in Odessa, and participated in all of the anti-fascist and workers’ protests, not only in Odessa, but also in other cities.
Andrew was a very modest and well-mannered man. He always tried to help his comrades and the people. He never betrayed his principles and ideals.
Andrew’s death was a confirmation of his ideology. He could not stay away, could not remain silent when the Nazis came to Odessa. He gave his life in the struggle for a new and more just society, where there will be an end to inequality, discrimination and human exploitation.
We all deeply mourn you, Andrew! We pledge to continue your work — the fight for a new world!
To remember — means to struggle!

Ferguson, MO – It is shortly after midnight, Aug. 15, and easily at least a thousand members of the Ferguson community have taken the streets tonight in what it seems like a atmosphere of celebration. Residents said that they are overjoyed that the police, at least tonight, have withdrawn their militarized force from their streets.
West Florissant Avenue, the street that police have used as their point of siege towards the Ferguson community, was filled with bumper-to bumper-traffic as cars honked at each in other in a festive atmosphere. This reporter talked to residents who said that the lack of military style police presence was great, with younger residents stating that the streets no longer belongs to the police but now is in the hands of the community.
The large crowd chanted, “Hands up, don’t shoot!” with members of the New Black Panther Party directing busy traffic. Tonight was a night of relief for Ferguson residents. However, they know that getting justice for Michael Brown is gonna require them staying out in the streets and demanding it.
Howard University alumna Mya Aaten-White said she was shot in the head while protesting in Ferguson, Missouri, Wednesday.
Aaten-White, a 2012 graduate of Howard, posted an Instagram photo of herself bloodied and bandaged in the back of an ambulance Wednesday. Her condition is unknown.
Several hours later, she posted that she had been “shot in the head,” was “in custody” and her life was “intact.”
LUGANSK, August 15 (ITAR-TASS) - Militia in Ukraine’s town of Lugansk said on Friday they have captured a reconnaissance group of National Guard tasked with preparing an attack on the Russian humanitarian aid convoy.
A load of weapons and ammunition was found in a car carrying three saboteurs, the militia headquarters of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic and Donetsk People’s Republic said.
"The weapons and ammunition were hidden in bags of food," a headquarters representative said.
During an interrogation, the saboteurs said their mission was to plant mines along a local road and attack the Russian convoy delivering humanitarian aid to residents of south-eastern Ukraine.
One of the detainees said the Ukrainian army had sent seven teams of saboteurs to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions and that these groups were setting up ambushes on roads leading to militia-controlled areas.
He also said that Ukrainian security officials had instructed them to send the convoy back to the border without killing the Russians accompanying the cargo.
The detainee admitted that the provocation aimed at preventing the supply of food and medicines to the militia-controlled territory.
A search is underway for other Ukrainian saboteurs, the militia headquarters said.
