You're reading: Once again, Russian agents attack while Kyiv is caught off guard

On April 6, pro-Russian activists stormed oblast administration buildings and state security offices in Donetsk, Kharkiv and Luhansk in coordinated attacks that Russian news media are calling the “Russian Spring.”

Meanwhile, the borders in eastern and southern Ukraine remain leaky. The government in Kyiv is refusing to put up border controls between Russian-annexed Crimea and the mainland, and struggling to close borders in the east. Moreover, Ukrainian arms manufacturers are still selling weapons to Russia’s military, a policy that could prove suicidal to the nation.

These remarks, more than anything, show the unpreparedness of the Ukrainian government – coming more than month after Russia’s Feb. 27 military invasion of Crimea.
