Supposedly just after the phone call with Trump Russian backed 'rebels' are on the move in Ukraine.

"Fighting between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russia rebels in eastern Ukraine has escalated, with at least 13 civilians and fighters on both sides killed in the worst outbreak of violence in several weeks.The warring sides were locked in heavy battles for a third day on Tuesday at the government-held town of Avdiivka, accusing each other of launching attacks and firing heavy artillery in violation of a two-year truce agreement."

More distractions perhaps?

One has to wonder what the Main Event is going to be.

Baltic states?I'd figured Serbia was gonna chew off bits of Bosnia first, but maybe you're right. There's no better time to get this underway, considering the complete clusterf#ck in Washington right now impeding any actual response.

The Baltic? reds don't give a damn about the Baltic. Couldn't find it on a map if their mommy's life depended on it. No money there.

The Main Event is going to be something domestic.
