EUROPE - The top U.S. commander for NATO said Thursday that America needs better intelligence on the ground in Ukraine , but that it appears Russian forces have used a recent lull in fighting to reposition for another offensive. Gen. Philip Breedlove, commander of NATO forces in Europe , told the Senate Armed Services Committee , that the situation in Ukraine is volatile & fragile & urged Congress to bolster U.S. intelligence capabilities to better understand President Vladimir Putin's intent in the region. " Russian military operations over the past year in Ukraine & the region more broadly, have underscored that there are critical gaps in our collection & analysis " Breedlove said. " Some Russian military exercises have caught us by surprise and our textured feel for Russian involvement on the ground in Ukraine has been quite limited."

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - American officials say that Russia has significantly deepened its command & control of the militants in eastern Ukraine in recent months. This has led the US to introduce a new term : " combined Russian-separatist forces ." They used this phrase 3 times in one statement this week where they lambasted Moscow and the insurgents for breaking the ceasefire. By describing them as an integrated force in the east of the country , the U.S. is putting greater responsibility on Russia for the continued fighting. America fears that Russia is building up for a new offensive. But Putin is notoriously difficult to read. As General Breedlove said this week … ” We cannot be fully certain what Russia will do next & we cannot fully grasp Putin's intent.” Through Bible Prophecy we can actually know what Putin actually thinks ! We are told he thinks an evil thought to invade the Middle East & ultimately , Israel. He is a man that is difficult to read but God knows his mind & has revealed it !
EZEKIEL 38 v 10-11 - Thus saith the Lord GOD ; It shall also come to pass , that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, & thou ( Russian ' Gog ' ) shalt think an ' evil thought ' : And thou shalt say , I will go up to the land of unwalled villages . . . To take ' a spoil ' & to take ' a prey ' ; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited & upon the people ( Israel ) that are ' gathered out of the nations '.
