Poroshenko is trying desperately to get the US and NATO involved in solving the problems he himself, with US backing, caused. (Yesterday we posted his admission that Ukraine is the poorest state in Europe, thanks to the illegal and violent US-backed Maidan coup). That is no doubt why he sent 3 military ships into the Russian territory so that a small exchange of fire would take place and give rise to NATO intervention. Let's hope there are cool heads prevailing on the Western side. The West is already getting sick of this guy. Let's hope they don't latch on to this as an excuse to slap more sanctions on Russia or cut them off of SWIFT. Poroshenko’s fond wish for war, however, is not likely to come true.
Poroshenko has become a political corpse": the consequences of the martial law in Ukraine, said an expert
Poroshenko fears "land invasion" of Ukraine by Russia
November 26, 2018, Kiev, Ukraine
Intelligence speaks of an "extremely serious threat" of a land operation against Ukraine, President Petro Poroshenko said in a televised address to the people.
Poroshenko: the Russian army ready to launch an “immediate invasion” into the territory of Ukraine at any time.

According to Poroshenko, there are several pages of text [from Ukrainian intel] with a detailed description of all Russian forces that are allegedly located at a distance of several tens of kilometres from the border. [NSS note: The presence of the Russian forces is easily explained by the warlike insinuations that Ukraine might invade Russia]
[NSS note: Such irony! NATO has staged the Trident Juncture drills right at the Russian border and the Russian officials did not issue a hysterical message like this. That is because Russian officials are adults and behave as such, and they realize it is legal under international law for the militaries of one or more countries to concentrate troops anywhere they choose at anyone’s border just so they don’t cross over. Thus Russia is in its perfect right to amass troops and materiel at its own border and that is none of Ukraine’s business. But Poroshenko’s situation is desperate. He is in serious internal political trouble and could be ousted at any time by his disgusted populace, so he needed a diversion, and therefore sent in 3 military ships to enter Russian territorial waters, provoking the Russians to fire on the vessels so that he could instigate NATO intervention. It is unlikely to succeed because, unlike Poroshenko, NATO officials know that they cannot deal militarily with Russia. They learned that in Syria. But apparently Poroshenko doesn’t read the news.]
They are ready at any moment to launch an “immediate invasion” on the territory of Ukraine - these are airplanes, helicopters, tanks, rocket complexes, and armoured personnel carriers, the head of state asserts. [NSS note: THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ABSURD!]
He also explained that he proposed TO the Verkhovna Rada to impose martial law for 30 days, not 60 days, in order not to disrupt the presidential election. [NSS: So it’s election time and time to pull any stunt that might scare the populace into re-electing the old president, no matter how incompetent he may be.]
Recall, on November 25, the ships of the Ukrainian Navy "Berdyansk", "Nikopol" and "Yany Kapu" violated the Russian border in the Kerch Strait. Since they ignored the warnings of the frontier service, they had to be detained using weapons.
Experts believe that by this planned provocation Kiev was trying to remind the world community of its existence, and besides, it wants to thwart the negotiations in Argentina between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump.
