Why have we seen an intensification of military action in eastern Ukraine? Government forces report that Russian troops are pushing towards not just Donetsk Airport, but essentially in all directions. This way, all previous predictions about how the military conflict will only smoulder during the winter but won't advance have burst like soap bubbles. Fierce fighting has recommenced, civilians are dying as well as soldiers.
