On Thursday, a group of military "instructors" from the United States arrived at the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) located in the Donbass, said the official representative of the defense department of the Luhansk People's Republic.
Those "instructors" were twelve US Special Forces operators. The US may be calling them "instructors" but typically, men like these go into a region to "soften-up" targets before the main US body of forces arrives and engages.

Observers within several foreign ministries described the situation this way: "Russia-US diplomatic contacts are "dead." They went on to say "the expulsion of 10 Russian from America and the follow-up expulsion of 10 Americans from Russia means there will be no meeting with Biden because it is now clear there is nothing left to talk about."
Diplomats throughout the United Nations are almost apoplectic over the turn of events; many of them commenting they have not, in their entire careers, seen the world's two Superpowers intentionally halt Diplomacy with each other.

Hal Turner Remarks
There’s way too much at stake now, more then just egos.
The globalist narrative is collapsing. More and more people are resisting.
The economy is near collapse.
The Democrats won’t allow Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline to happen.
Russia can’t allow NATO to destroy their pipelines and allow NATO to sit right on the border with Russia.
That border has always been a red line. If Putin blinks or wimps-out, he’s finished.
This is why they are pushing Putin's back against the wall, they want a war or to get rid of Putin and install a Pro-NWO regime in Moscow.
They can’t do the great reset with Russia or the US still existing.
That's exactly why I think conflict is guaranteed. Everybody wants completely different things and nobody is moving at all on any of them. Everyone's position is now set in stone.
Hell, the announcement after the meeting yesterday amounted to telling Russia "we aren't negotiating, pull back your troops or face the consequences."
Russia gave them the finger in response.
It's very, very tense today and it's been that way since then.
There are *** RUMORS *** Putin is going to recognize Donetsk and Lugansk Republic as political entities and announce annexation of that part of Ukraine.
Russia has about 14 bases outside its borders.
