    Just reading the headlines and article doesn’t make it clear. One has to go to the map and get real close up to see the importance of this. There is no clearly marked Donetsk People’s Republic but a closeup shows an area close to the Russian border. [It also shows the Ukraine to be a bigger country than one would expect] Another closeup shows the Sea of Azov separating the two countries with Croatia quite prominent. And finally, there’s the Luhansk People's Republic which also quite prominently borders Russia.

    The leader of the Russian-backed Donetsk People's Republic in eastern Ukraine was killed on Friday in a cafe bombing, according to several reports.

    Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko was killed after a bomb exploded in a downtown Donetsk cafe called "Separ," meaning Separatist, according to Meduza.

    The explosion also wounded Alexander Timofeyev, the DPR's finance minister, Meduza reported.

    Two others were wounded as well, according to Interfax, but it's unclear at this point if they were DPR officers or civilians.

    Does this give Putin another excuse to step up the conflict between the two nations? And, would such actions drag the US into another war we want no part of?

    Much more to this @ The leader of the Russian-backed republic in Ukraine was just assassinated in a cafe bombing

    I never understood why so many Americans hate that a country wants to make its own choices.

    Ever since our elected ones passed that bill legalizing government propaganda against Americans, it's really been getting worse.
