Short news items

  • Poroshenko claims that a Novorussian artillery spotter was arrested in Mariupol and that soon he will give evidence to the world.  Why such a spotter would be needed for fixed targets in unclear.
  • In the meantime, Russia TV said that the initial information about a single strike was wrong, there were three strikes, one at 0900, then one at 1300 and the last one around 1330.
  • FortRuss has published a translation of an interesting article describing what a Russian military attack on the Ukrainian forces would look like.  I am not so sure that Russia would go to the bother of using such advanced technologies against the Ukrainian military, but she could.
