    When will the White House pick up on how dire the situation is?

    Interesting tidbit from Washington Post: “Poroshenko also does not maintain full control over ¬≠pro-Kiev volunteer militias that have been fighting the rebels alongside the regular army. They may be inclined to keep fighting despite instructions from Kiev. A previous cease-fire in June quickly broke down after each side accused the other of violating it.

      One might also point out that Putin doesn’t maintain full control over the pro-Moscow militias that have been fighting alongside the Russian army in eastern Ukraine. If he did, they wouldn’t have shot down the Malaysian Airlines jet and killed nearly three hundred people who had nothing to do with the conflict.
