Lavrov ‘doesn't understand' why Kyiv continues military operation

Lavrov ‘doesn't understand' why Kyiv continues military operation

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Friday he 'doesn't understand' the reasons Kyiv continues its military operation in eastern Ukraine against the self-proclaimed militant republics.

‘I'll be honest, I don't understand why the so called anti-terrorist operation is still going on in Ukraine and the leaders of the self-proclaimed republics are called terrorists and separatists', Lavrov said, according to Russian media agencies.

His statement arrived as Kyiv says militants continue to attack the positions of the Ukrainian troops.

‘The Donetsk and Luhansk leaders signed the Minsk agreements. They did it because Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko insisted, and now they are told they are not legitimate, can't take part in election and must go', Russia's FM continued............

Moscow’s nightmare: Ukraine creates Tomahawk-type cruise missile

Moscow’s nightmare: Ukraine creates Tomahawk-type cruise missile

Ukrainian engineers started work on the cruise missile in the 90s but had to stop it for the lack of funding. Now, in view of Russia’s aggression, the funding has been restored.

Political expert Viktor Ukolov writes this in Facebook Dec. 2 about the high-accuracy, subsonic and very low-flying Korshun (Hawk) Ukrainian missile:

 “Moscow’s nightmare becomes a reality – Ukraine has created its US Tomahawk-type Korshun missile. Its range of accuracy is 280 km but can be raised to 2,000. Korshun uses the Stealth technology. The missile can be land-based or plane-carried. Its weight is 480 kgs. The missile flies at 50 m reflecting the terrain elevations. Korshun cannot be picked up by radars and hit by AA missiles.”
