Anti-War Protests Spread in Ukraine by ROGER ANNIS (TRUTHOUT)
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Is this true? Or is this just another psy-ops hoax story? What do you want to believe?)
(August 1, 2014) A rising wave of antiwar and anti-conscription protest is taking place in cities and towns across western Ukraine.
The protests are prompted by the announcement of Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko ten days ago that a "third" military mobilization is now required for the war that his governing regime began waging against the population of eastern Ukraine three months ago. Kyiv calls the war an "anti-terrorist operation."
The protests are paralleled by a rise in Ukraine army desertions and refusals of men and women to heed conscription orders.
Poroshenko's mobilization proposal was approved by the Ukraine Rada on July 22. The measure means that more people will be conscripted into military service and that more reserve army units will be thrown into the battle theatre.
