Graves Waiting For Bodies: Major War Escalation in Ukraine; In 5 Weeks Ukraine Out of Money

OWoN: So saddening and sickening to see these mass graves waiting for bodies. Another holocaust is about to unfold.

The Ukies are headed for a real human disaster. Where are Leaders of conscience and vision to stop this.

It's beyond sad we do nothing. 3 deaths in Israel and we get 3 months of nonstop media exposure. 3,000 Palestinians dead and not a word.

How many more must die for a Cabal Zionist lie? Ethnic cleansing for the new Jerusalem? This is horrific. Does no one care anymore?

Gimme maahh dinars, play with maahh dong.

Graves Waiting For Bodies: Major War Escalation in Ukraine; In 5 Weeks Ukraine Out of Money

Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis
By Mike "Mish" Shedlock
18 January 2015

We regret having to interrupt feel-good weekend articles with more sobering news. In Ukraine, major battles have broken out over the past couple weeks.

Mainstream media has widely ignored the story because of Greece, then Charlie, and then the Swiss Franc. And of course Western media has no interest in reporting news the rebels are winning.

However, ignoring the story does not make it go away.

Major Rebel Advance

On November 9, 2014, I posted Ukraine Split in Two; Expect Major Rebel Advance.

That advance came later than I expected. But it is here in full force.

Max Keiser provided this accurate headline two days ago: Ukraine Lurches to Full Scale War as Russia Drastically Reduces Gas Supply to EU.

Reader Jacob Dreizin, a US citizen who speaks Russian and reads Ukrainian sent a few emails and videos recently worth posting.

From Jacob ...

Hello Mish

Here's a video that shows a military "cemetery" in Dnepropetrovsk region, Ukraine. Note especially seconds 33 through 51. There are literally hundreds of empty holes in the ground here, waiting for bodies. I read in another source that these graves were dug very recently, probably right before this video was posted on January 8th. Looks like Kiev had been planning an offensive, presumably the one that was just broken up by the rebels in the last few days. I guess it's cheaper to have the graves dug all at once than to keep calling the backhoe crew over and over.

Link if video does not play: Mass Graves in Ukraine.

Dreizin writes ...

The last few weeks have seen a significant escalation of fighting, which really boiled over in the last 5-6 days. I can't say for sure who "started" it, but it's clear from those hundreds of holes in the ground that the Ukrainians anticipated something.

Donetsk Airport Battle is Over

Dreizin also informs me that "The battle for the Donetsk airport is over. The rebels expelled Ukraine's most elite units from their last redoubts in the new terminal building."

More reports coming up, none of them pretty for Kiev. Mainstream media ... silence. But some things are impossible to hide. Here's one of them.

USD/UAH - US Dollar Ukrainian Hryvnia

Since November 30, 2013, the Hryvnia has collapsed from 8.24-per-US$ to 15.86-per-US$. That's a decline of 48 percent. Everything Ukraine imports costs nearly double what it did just over a year ago!

Ukraine is bankrupt. It needs another bailout, but so far there are no offers. See Ukraine Needs Second Bailout, Currency Reserves Drop to Critical Level; Another IMF Visit; Where's the Love?

In 5 Weeks, Ukraine Out of Money

Please consider Foreign Currency Reserves in Ukraine Plunge 63 Percent in 2014

Ukraine's foreign currency reserves were down to just over $7.5 billion last year, the lowest level for 10 years and barely enough to cover five weeks of imports, pressured by external debt repayments including to the IMF and to Russia for gas. Repayment of $14 billion of external debt falling due in 2014 took its toll.

War Marches On

From a "grave" perspective, the war marches on, and will do so until the IMF steps in with another bailout or every penny is gone, whichever comes first.

Philosophically speaking, the war is actually over. Ukraine is already split in two even if international recognition of that event comes years later.


The report from Dreizin that rebels took the airport was from Saturday.

Reuters reported Sunday afternoon that Ukrainian troops retake most of Donetsk airport from rebels.

Ukrainian troops recaptured almost all the territory of Donetsk airport in eastern Ukraine they had lost to separatists in recent weeks, as thousands gathered in Kiev for a state-sponsored peace march on Sunday.

Military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said the army's operation had returned battle lines near the airport to the previous status quo and thus not violated the 12-point peace plan agreed with Russia and separatist leaders last September in Minsk.

With its runways pitted and cratered, Donetsk airport has long since ceased to function.

But its control tower and extensive outbuildings, battered by shelling and gunfire, have taken on symbolic value, with government soldiers and separatists hunting each other, often at close range, in a deadly cat-and-mouse game among the ruins. 

What we don't know is "what costs" and to which side. Also, I strongly suspect that this surge for Kiev to the previous status quo may mean Ukraine forces are really thin somewhere else of more strategic importance, such as the area around Mariupol.



  1. This is disgusting .... even more sad is that those in Kiev and DC and Brussels say .... that's great, THEN WE GOT 5 more weeks to kill and then we will wait for Russia to have it fixed, since it is Russia at the first place that does not want Ukraine bankrupt breeding terrorist who would be attacking Russia going after food and money ....


    .......the Ukies continued shelling, but not the Novorussian forces, but the usual terrorist shelling of the civilian neighborhoods of Donesk and other cities, Gorlovka, in particular, has suffered terribly and is completely in ruins. That kind of shelling makes the Ukies feel good, but it serves no military purpose.....

    It needn't to happen this way ... all American and EU work including Israel....

    White Nobility - stop sacrificing other nations for America sake .... it was enough of this.....

  3. John/Vlastimil:

    Yes, this is disgusting and a travesty of justice. This carnage has the black ops US mercs/NATO and most especially the Zionists hands all over it.

    Isn't Soros, along with that gal from Washington, preparing for the new solution for the endless diaspora. In this "new" homeland, the Khazars will drag themselves to Ukraine to destroy yet another country - the one from whence they originally crawled out of the slime and emerged in the 6th and 7th century.

    The awakened here in America know of the false flag that was MH17. Another population of innocents that we will have to answer for the misdeeds of our Feds and negative military in order to erect a bridge built on cooperation and trust - and we will in due time when this total war is over.

    On the subject of Vietnam, this piece from Veteran's Today and Gordon Duff sheds light on the innocents that became victims at the hands of American snipers apropo of the current American film, "American Sniper." Mr. Duff was a sniper in this conflict that was never meant to culminate quickly.

    All the best,
