Sputnik: Kerry: Poroshenko Should 'Think Twice' Before Using Force in Donbass

Following an extensive six hour discussion between US Secretary of State John Kerry, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and President Putin, Kerry stressed that any Ukrainian efforts to seize the Donetsk Airport through force would violate the Minsk Protocol and would face strict opposition from Washington.

On Monday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko vowed to retake Donetsk Airport by whatever means necessary, despite the fact that doing so would directly violate the Minsk deal to move heavy weapons away from the demarcation line.

"I have no doubt,” Poroshenko said during the premier of the documentary "Airport," "we will free the airport, because it is our land. And we will rebuild the airport."

WNU Editor: I was surprised by these remarks .... did a Google search to find out if anyone in the Western media was covering this story .... and found it on PJ Media .... On ‘Broad Cooperation’ Visit to Russia, Kerry Chides Ukraine (PJ Media). The fact of the matter is that Ukrainian President Poroshenko has already vowed to use military force on eastern Ukraine .... and yes .... it is completely against the agreement that he signed at Minsk. But the problem is that the war (as predicted) is continuing .... albeit at a lower intensity .... and there are no signs that it will end soon. And if Ukraine does launch the offensive that many are now predicting .... I am skeptical that the U.S will do anything to discourage Poroshenko from trying.
