Ukraine Junta's armed forces begins assault on Lugansk, a city of over 425,000 civilians: Airstrikes on suburbs, shelling of residential areas ~ link ~ We are seeing the beginning of something not witnessed in Europe since World War II. A nightmare all-out military assault on a large European city with many hundreds of thousands of civilians. Shockingly this is supported by NATO nations whose political classes are largely dominated by, bought and paid for by, and blackmailed by the Rothschild-led Global Banking Cartel. They arranged the violent overthrow of the elected Ukrainian Government and replaced it with a Coup Junta headed at the national and regional levels by Zionist (dual citizen: Ukrainian/Israeli citizens) Oligarchs and Central Bankers with large numbers of outright fascists in the fighting ranks. They are following a Rand Corporation strategy that calls for the killing of large numbers of Russian-speaking citizens (any who oppose the Junta in any way) and the imprisonment of all other Russian-speaking citizens in concentration camps. It is time that the citizens of the NATO nations speak out against this Globalist - Zionist - Fascist evil that is threatening the entire world with the outbreak of the Third World War!!! Stirling
Kiev's artillery attacked the city of Lugansk in eastern Ukraine on Sunday, witnesses and militia of the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Lugansk (LNR) said. Ukrainian forces also attacked the city’s suburbs from the air. "Ukrainian aviation launched missile strikes at Aleksandrovka, the Lugansk suburb. Ukrainian airplanes are in the skies above Lugansk. A siren is on," the press service of the Donetsk People's Republic wrote on Twitter.
After 8 p.m. Moscow time, the confrontation between the self-defense and Ukrainian forces intensified in the suburbs of Lugansk, RIA Novosti reported. The agency said that a heavy aircraft could be heard flying above Lugansk, after which a siren went off.
The attack happened the same day Kiev said it would not bombard armed groups in Lugansk and Donetsk from the air. "The tactics of the Ukrainian Army, the National Guard and the Border Service are such that massive bombardment of residential areas is excluded," Andrey Lysenko, spokesman of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council said on Sunday.

The approach to Slavyansk was deserted, with relics of recent fighting, including abandoned sandbags and bullet-holed road signs, lining the forest highway coming into the city from the north.
Ukrainian forces have established a formidable perimeter around the town and are strictly controlling access, with soldiers turning back journalists attempting to enter the city.
