"It is obvious today that these agreements have been crudely violated by the Ukrainian side," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement released on Thursday.
Kiev and pro-Russia forces inked a truce agreement proposed by Moscow in the Belarusian capital city of Minsk on September 5 in a move to put an end to heavy clashes in Ukraine’s eastern provinces. Fighting, however, continues in these regions despite the ceasefire deal.
Ukrainian authorities have intensified their military campaign against pro-Moscow activists instead of trying to deescalate tensions in the country’s restive areas, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s statement added.
It went on to note that the growing hostilities, in which heavy equipment are used, have led to “thousands of casualties and large-scale destruction” in Ukraine’s eastern parts.

Obama: Full-speed-ahead on illegal alien amnesty despite election loss ~ link ~ An early test for the new Republican controlled Congress. Most likely it will be a diversion from other issues, like the coming world war!!! Stirling
Following the Republican triumphs on election day, which will radically change the composition of both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, many believed President Barack Obama would understand the "error of his ways," according to a number of political and law enforcement analysts. Unfortunately they claim that Obama appears oblivious to the facts. During his press conference on Wednesday, not even 24-hours after his party's defeat, he said that if Congress doesn't pass what he considers immigration reform he will begin his own version of reform by taking the first step towards amnesty: ordering a reduction in deportations of working immigrants living in the country illegally.
He made his statement following the soon-to-be-Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warning to the President that immigration reform should not be "passed" unilaterally. "It's like waving a red flag in front of a bull to say if you guys don't do what I want I'm going to do it on my own," McConnell said at a news conference in Kentucky after he was reelected Senator.
Russia - China - Brazil joining forces to avoid the US Dollar ~ link ~
“Brazil, China and Russia could easily put something together to compete with the US dollar,” Rogers said, leaving out one component of the BRICs alliance. “The US dollar is a terribly flawed currency. I’m an American. I hate to say that. But the US has serious problems, the world has serious problems. We need something else” and potentially a competing world currency could be developed. If this were to occur, the US and its economy might be put in a straight jacket as the ability to engage in large deficit spending could be curtailed. Jim Rogers: BRICs developing an alternative banking system.
