Vladimir Putin accuses US of arming Ukraine, Joe Biden and Canada chime in

Russian President Vladimir Putin is suggesting that the United States is already delivering weapons to Ukraine, supplying support and aide to the “rebels.”

At a news conference Tuesday in Budapest with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Putin was asked how he assessed the possible consequences if the United States decides to supply lethal weapons to Ukraine in its fight against Russian-backed separatists.

Putin answered that “according to our information, these weapons are already being delivered.”

He said the new weapons for Ukraine could increase the number of victims but “the result will be the same as it is today. This is unavoidable.”

Ukrainian government forces have pulled back from a key combat zone in the eastern part of the country, after days of violence in the area despite a supposed cease-fire.

Around 80 percent of soldiers had withdrawn from the town of Debaltseve, according to Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko, who was quoted by Reuters.

He added that the withdrawal was being carried out in a “panned and organized” manner and comes after unconfirmed reports by pro-Russian separatists that government troops were surrendering.

The cease-fire agreement, signed last week by Russia and Ukraine, was supposed to lead to the withdrawal of heavy artillery in the key conflict zones in the east of the country. Debaltseve has seen continued fighting, however, and a huge gas explosion near the town Tuesday was reported to be caused by a mortar shell hitting a gas pipeline.

An official statement from the White House late Tuesday showed that Vice President Joe Biden has spoken with Petro Poroshenko, the president of Ukraine, with both condemning the violation of the cease-fire by separatist forces “acting in concert with Russian forces.”

“The Vice President agreed with President Poroshenko that if Russia continues to violate the Minsk agreements, including the most recent agreement signed on February 12, the costs to Russia will rise,” the statement said.

Canada, meanwhile, announced more sanctions against Russia Tuesday, despite Moscow continuing to deny the involvement of Russian troops in the conflict.

  1. messenger of YESHUA says:


    “The Most High is reducing high officials to NOTHING, he is making judges of the earth a mere UNREALITY”

    “ALL the nations of the world are but a DROP in a bucket. They are nothing more than mere DUST on a scale”


    ALL the World Powers are being TORN DOWN, but NOT by human hands. ALL OF THEM! So-called Israel is NOT EXEMPT!

    The World Powers have been ruling with the power of SPIRITISM. Spiritism is the worship of demons through SORCERY and MAGIC. The Most High’s Holy Word clearly shows that the Devil and his Demons are the HIDDEN HANDS behind the WORLD POWERS. (1John 5:19, Luke 4:6, Ephesians 6:11-12) YESHUA the Son of YHWH is DISMANTLING this WICKED HOUSE.

    HEAR THE WORD OF YHWH THE MOST HIGH: “In the days of those Kings the Most High of the heaven will set up a KINGDOM that will NEVER be brought to ruin. The KINGDOM itself will NOT be passed on to any other people. It will CRUSH and put an END to ALL other kingdoms, and it itself WILL STAND TO TIME INDEFINITE” Daniel 2:44

    YESHUA the Chosen One of the Most High, is DISMANTLING ALL THE NATIONS! Ecclesiastes says: ” There is a time to build and a time to TEAR DOWN”

    HEAR THE WORD OF YHWH: “YHWH The Most High is slow to anger and his power is Great, but he never lets the GUILTY go UNPUNISHED”

    HEAR THE WORD OF YHWH: “I will cause distress to mankind, and they will certainly walk like blind men, because it is AGAINST YHWH ALMIGHTY that they have SINNED. Their blood will actually be poured out like dust, and the bowels like the dung! Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them in the day of YHWH’S FURY, but by the fire of his zeal, the WHOLE EARTH WILL BE DEVOURED, because YHWH will make an EXTERMINATION indeed a terrible one of ALL the inhabitants of the earth.”
