Ukraine - The Russian War of Aggression is on again

There never was a real cease fire with either Minsk I or Minsk II, just a bit of a slow down.  The Russian side pretended to pull back the heavy artillery but turned it around and brought it back.  Ukraine tried somewhat harder but it cost them a number of soldiers and several villages.  Anyhow, June 3, it opened up again full blast.
