Fears of civil war in Ukraine increase as armed volunteers fight pro-Russian separatists | End the Lie – Independent News

Tensions in the eastern part of the country are only getting worse as separatists recently killed six in a grenade launcher attack and have called on the Ukrainian military to withdraw troops on Thursday and Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Ukraine must pay cash for gas in advance starting next month.Now the Guardian reports that volunteer battalions are being deployed with very little training in an effort to combat the separatists.“Arming troops with almost no real training and sending them into extremely sensitive situations where they may be shot at with weapons from within crowds, largely made up of angry but unarmed civilians, sounds like a recipe for disaster,” the British paper reports.Disaster is unfortunately just what has come about as a result of the incursions in eastern Ukraine.Last Friday, “at least eight people” were killed when the Ukrainian national guard entered the city of Mariupol to clear the police station of separatist fighters.
