Russian marauders in Donbas

Yesterday's I wrote how extremist elements of Russian society are wreaking havoc in Donbas with the full blessing of the Kremlin leadership.

Now check out this brief RFE/RL video entitled "Debaltseve – Gunmen, Looting, And Bread Queues...

The town of Debaltseve, in eastern Ukraine, fell to a Russian-backed separatist assault shortly after the Minsk cease-fire agreements were signed in February. A fraction of the pre-conflict civilian population now lives there. Those who remained have experienced looting, buried bodies being dug up, and bread queues controlled by gunmen"

According to most accounts Debaltseve was taken in violation of the Minsk 2 agreement, almost entirely by heavily equipped Russian forces.
