- According to report, the US has doubled its military assistance to Ukraine in the past 3 months with plans of extending it further, and has also asked Ukraine to act decisively against the rebels in its eastern provinces.
- If true, this would mean that US is in fact working against a European Peace Plan that it was part of to halt violence and commence peace talks.
- Ukraine is determined to press on with its military onslaught until all the rebels are caught and people can live safely and peacefully.
- Anti-govt militia captured another Ukrainian military base and disarmed around 60 soldiers. Earlier the militia had disarmed and handed over to parents about 80 young Ukrainian soldiers.
