Military observers have suggested that the buildup of Russian troops on Ukraine’s eastern border is so large that it is either the most expensive military exercise in world history or Vladimir Putin is positioning his army for a massive invasion of the former Soviet state. On Monday the Israeli-based Debka File news agency reported that sources inside the U.S. Department of Defense strongly believe both countries are mobilizing military assets in anticipation of a first battle over the rebel-held flashpoint town of Slavyansk.
“The outcome will determine who controls the Donetsk region and possibly all of East Ukraine – the separatists or the provisional government in Kiev,” reports Debka. Given that Russia has one of the largest and well armed militaries in the world, the prospects of war don’t bode well for Ukraine. “With a superior, professional and well-trained force armed with a preponderance of fire power, the Kremlin has several options to choose from for this engagement,” none of which work in Ukraine’s favor.
