This message happens to be almost perfectly compatible with the objectives of the West as supported by Germany and France and also very attractive to the Kiev regime who, at this moment, are trying to cut off the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics from being assisted by Russia. At the same time, very sophisticated and intensive assistance to the Kiev junta from the US, NATO, and the EU goes on at full speed and in all the spectrum. Here is an interesting comment from RT:

"As a Commander in US Navy with experience in Southern Russia and Ukraine and with a father from western Ukraine (Lvov) and a mother from Russia, I can tell you for a fact that the Ukrainian government has been taken over by America, German military officers are in Eastern Ukraine and Right Sector Nazis (sympathizers of Nazis, many of whom are descendants of Nazis) have eagerly killed Russians."
In order to promote this message, the Russian government is deliberately entirely mute on the status of the Donbass "republics" and, except for few officials' few comments, is very mild and restrained in criticizing the Ukrainian government for its actions.
Meanwhile, being on the defensive and without any chance to launch serious offensive actions, the territory effectively controlled by the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics continues to shrink. At the same time, the mobilization of the Kiev regime and the turning of the country to a war footing against Russia continues unabated.
The Russian government does talk occasionally about the need to protect "rights" of the people in east Ukraine. However, it has not bothered so far to even roughly explain what this is supposed to mean besides some more inclusive talks, while the resistance keeps losing ground and is being forced to surrender more of its demands (per Donetsk People's Republic Prime Minister Aleksandr Boroday's statement yesterday) and positions.
If I can think of parallels, this does, indeed, remind me of how Slobodan Milosevic started treating Krajina before its fall/surrender, which came in the form of Operation Storm planned by "retired" or lent US officers.
While Russia has renewed its offer to have Ukrainian officers and the OSCE monitor its checkpoints or its side of the border with the Donbass, it also appears that the Russian government dropped the initial idea of monitoring the ceasefire with the OSCE also elsewhere, i.e., on the territory of Ukraine or the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics.
If this is so, then, like in Krajina, the more or fictional or maybe even more real ceasefire would serve the Kiev regime to get the time it needs to rehearse and prepare the eventual overwhelming blitzkrieg.
If this Krajina-like plan continues and if the case of Yugoslavia can serve as any indication, this option would then be followed by some combination of Maidan and a Color Revolution in Moscow and a Milosevic-like trial of Putin and other Russian leaders in the Hague. The "international court for the former Yugoslavia" in the Hague, as the case with Yugoslavia proved again and again (and most vividly and unreservedly in the 11-and-half year long! detention of unconvicted and unconvictable Vojislav Seselj, is nothing more than the Empire's arbitrary inquisition. The Hague court is for all practical purposes a fascist court and fascist "justice."
Let's not forget: the US government, the Kiev regime, and all the US vassals (Brzezinski's own term) do already publicly and also officially hold Russia to be guilty of "aggression" not only in Ukraine, but also nearly everywhere on the territory of the former Soviet Union (see U.S. proposed bill 2277 called "Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014").
In a word, it seems now that Putin and the Russian government is able to speak more openly to their Western "partners" than to their own Russian people.
