Kiev needs military victory

The Ukrainian port of Mariupol was bombarded by missiles from the areas controlled by pro-Russian separatists on Saturday. At least 30 civilians were killed in the attack. Russia's increasingly aggressive actions in eastern Ukraine can only be stopped with weapons, the web portal believes: "Everything depends once again on the Ukrainians themselves - on their resolve, their courage and their will. Either they pull themselves together, go on the offensive and hit out at the Russians even harder than the Russians are hitting out at them, or the Russians will keep on attacking them harder and harder in the hope that Ukraine collapses - if not tomorrow then the day after or in a month's time. Everything will be decided on the battlefield - whoever calls the shots there will call the shots in other areas too."
