 Ukraine military attack on Donetsk chemical factory, October 20.


Anti-war alert!
     Oct. 23 - Officials of the independent Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, formerly part of southeastern Ukraine, report that the U.S.-backed coup regime in Kiev is preparing a new military offensive against them in violation of the Sept. 5 Minsk ceasefire accords.
     The Ukrainian military has violated the ceasefire every day since it was signed. Ukraine continues to target civilians daily in the capital city of Donetsk. On October 20, Ukrainian forces unleashed missiles in a brazen attack on a chemical factory there.
     This dangerous escalation takes place in the context of two important election dates: Ukrainian parliamentary elections scheduled for Sunday, October 26, and elections for prime minister and parliament in the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics on Sunday, November 2.
       The United Nations reports that conservatively more than 5,000 people have been killed in 7 months of civil war. Others estimate 10,000 civilian deaths, continuing at eight per day since the one-sided ceasefire began.
     On October 21, Human Rights Watch charged that Ukraine’s military has used banned cluster bombs. Use of illegal white phosphorous and chlorine weapons has also been reported.
      Washington continues its bipartisan support of the Kiev junta, composed of wealthy Ukrainian oligarchs, pro-Western neoliberal politicians, and open fascists. The U.S. has provided billions of dollars in direct aid to this regime, as well as facilitating a massive IMF bailout package, while cutting food assistance and other vital social programs at home. It has also provided weapons and military assistance to Ukraine through NATO members like Poland and Canada.
      In the U.S., the Obama administration, Congress and the media continue to brazenly lie about the situation in southeast Ukraine, blaming Russia’s government for the upheaval that Washington helped to engineer to further its goal of NATO expansion. The U.S. continues to impose sanctions, carry out provocative military maneuvers, and affect a dangerous war posture toward Russia.
      We urge activists to be on alert for a new Ukrainian military offensive against independent Donetsk and Lugansk, as well as against the resistance in junta-occupied southeastern Ukraine.
