U.S. puppet Pres Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine orders terror against his own citizens as he calls those who resist "terrorists." George Eliason reports embedded with Novorussia's Ghost Battalion and elsewhere.

A little over a week ago Petro Poroshenko ordered an all out assault on Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics. Faced with massive losses during the first few days the Poroshenko regime has resorted unsuccessfully to get both republic's listed as terrorist organizations by the EU and United Nations.

It started with the Volonavaha bus attack after which the bus driver states in an interview with the Korrespondent that a mine exploded and killed his passengers in Ukrainian controlled territory. Images from the scene taken by the Ukrainian army shows a soldier carrying what appears to be a claymore mine. Claymore mines are directional explosives that are set off remotely or by a trip wire.

Kiev is engaging in a game of escalating crimes against humanity. Each attack on civilian populations has been followed by an all out media blitz trying to place blame on the fledgling republics.

Frunza- The Example not the Exception

When Poroshenko's nationalist government ordered the new escalation Frunza was attacked again. Caught on video made by the Ukrainian army unit shelling the town, the world can no longer deny that Peter Poroshenko and the Ukrainian Rada are attacking civilian populations. The Ukrainian government and military are guilty of crimes against humanity.


The soldiers in this video are laughing and swearing "At Frunza!" and "f*ck Frunza!" as they fire on the civilian population. Soldiers don't attack targets without orders. These same orders are being carried out across the Donbass region.

In October I spent 3 days embedded with Commander Alexey Moskovoy's Prezrak "Ghost Battalion." I am one of the few western journalists to do invasive passport and weapon checks on soldiers and interview foreign volunteers with more than baseline questions.

During the time I was with Ghost Battalion we stopped in Frunza. It was a typical town with a vibrant market place so I could pick up a few things. There was no military targets or presence inside the city limits. Pictured below is the entry to Frunza market place. A few days after I left, Frunza was attacked by Ukrainian artillery and the market pictured below was destroyed.

Prezrak- "Ghost Battalion" Answers

In the last few seconds of the Ukrainian army's video, the Ukrainian soldier with the artillery unit laments they were hit back by Prezrak and his artillery brigade was destroyed. Until Poroshenko started this offensive the armies of the DNR (Donetsk People's Republic) and LNR (Lugansk People's Republic) were forced to stand down unless directly attacked.
