Supporters of the DPR win the election in the Ukrainian troops occupied parts of Donbass
Local elections in Ukraine-controlled parts of Donbass will result in the victory of the supporters of DND. About this on air of the talk show "Right on Vlad" said fled from Donetsk Ukrainian journalist Denis Kazansky.
According to him, those areas, which last year was controlled by DNR, and then were taken by the Ukrainian army, still full of supporters of the republics, and the government there has not been lustration.
"And no Amnesty and the courts have already forgiven all the terrorists and bandits, which only could have been forgiven, and now they go for local elections. We have the mayor of Druzhkivka performed at rallies under the flags of DPR and now he goes to the polls and probably will win them, in dobropillia stands the organizer of a local referendum last year from DNR, Aksenov, in Rubizhne is also running for people who participated in blocking the Ukrainian army. And how many of these people running for local councils, deputies of all sorts, it didn't count. No one is judged," laments Kazan.
The failed $500 million program to set up a proxy army in Syria was a test, US President Barack Obama told ’60 Minutes’, adding that he had doubts about the project from the start. He also ruled out sending US troops to Syria.
“I’ve been skeptical from the get-go about the notion that we were going to effectively create this proxy army inside of Syria,”Obama said in the interview. “My goal has been to try to test the proposition, can we be able to train and equip a moderate opposition that’s willing to fight ISIL?”
Broadcast Sunday night, Obama’s interview with CBS correspondent Steve Kroft was recorded last Tuesday, days before the administration announced it would stop attempting to train a force of ‘moderate’ militants in Syria.
After spending hundreds of millions of dollars, Washington had only “four or five”fighters to show for the effort. Most of the equipment ended up in jihadist hands as US-trained rebels were captured or deserted without ever facing Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIS or ISIL) in battle.
