Antiwar Protests Spreading in Ukraine as Government Wages All-Out War in the Southeast
August 3 2014
The protests are paralleled by a rise in Ukraine army desertions and refusals of men and women to heed conscription orders.
Army in trouble
Exact numbers of army desertions are not known and are the subject of considerable debate and counter-debate. This website report, for example, publishes a purported Ukraine army report saying that close to 3,500 soldiers deserted in the third week of July and that 1,600 soldiers died and 4,700 were wounded in that same time. Sources in Russia say the documents it cites are not authentic.http://www.network54.com/Forum/84302/th ... +Southeast
