Putin Speaks the Truth

“We need to put aside Geopolitical ambitions, abandon double the standards. The policy of using terrorist groups in order to achieve certain purposes, including the overthrow of unwanted regimes.”

“We support and continue to support the Syrian Government in it’s fight against terror. It is impossible to drive the Islamic State out of the country and out of the region without the support of the Syrian Government and Syrian military.”

“Refugees from Syria are fleeing a war imposed from outside. Without Russia’s support for Syria, the flow of refugees would have been bigger and the situation would have been worse than in Libya.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin, Dushanbe, September 2015.

A Bankrupt Narrative has been exposed.

Beyond the fantasy parallel universe of the Western media. The world is changing. The game is up. The essential bankruptcy and hypocrisy and the destructiveness of the West throughout the Global War on Terror/Arab Spring era has been exposed.
They have destroyed Libya and Iraq, Afghanistan has not improved and yet they believe they can still pretend to be the good guys representing enlightenment and freedom.

Actions are everything, and the facts on the ground indisputably show that the West has been destroying nations in the Middle East and murdering millions in the process over the past fifteen years.

All seemingly in concert with Israel’s stated ambition to fragment the surrounding Arab states as elucidated by Oded Yinon in 1982.

The Real Death Cult.
ISIL have been described as a death cult, and there is an element of truth to this but ISIL are a puny and poorly armed group and the real death cult is the Western cult of lies and delusion that refuses to recognise the simple reality of what has happened in Libya and Iraq and now demand the right to destroy Syria also.

All in the name of human rights of course. The human rights of people who will be at best completely forgotten as soon as the mission of regime change is achieved.

‘We need to abandon double standards to combat ISIS’ – Putin

The State Department refuse to accept the consequences of their actions.

The extent to which reality is edited is astonishing. Libya is a failed state. Libya was destroyed by the West, by people who claimed to want to help the people of the nation.

These very same people somehow magically disappeared entirely from the Western consciousness the moment the UN resolution required to destroy the state was achieved.

During the most recent US State Department briefing the currently anointed drone John Kirby refused to answer when asked whether Libya had improved since the Western regime change operation, offering the laughable “I refuse to dignify that with a response,”

Always a telltale sign that the spin event is not running smoothly.

Prior to that Spokesman actually tried to claim that Iraq has been improved by the criminal US coalition invasion that led to a minimum extra 1.3 million deaths and has left Iraq with three separate governments a genuinely sectarian conflict and the third largest city Mosul in the hands of the IS group who are far stronger in Iraq than Syria where the largest city they control is Raqqa a quarter the size of Mosul.

All in all the State Department over the past several years have exposed themselves as a key agent of International destabilisation.
They are the authors of the Ukraine coup and thus bear significant responsibility for the Donbass war.

The State Department was also at the forefront of the Libya operation that led to the nation’s destruction.

There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of people who are dead who would not be dead if the people at the State Department had simply stayed away from work over the past four years and still they posture as if none of it had even happened.

It will not wash anymore and they are going to have to do a lot better than “I refuse to dignify that question with a response” in order to begin to redeem themselves or the tattered credibility of the institutions they represent and that their response to the Russian moves in Syria has so cruelly exposed.

It is comedy hour when they pretend they have the right to determine who supports the Government of Syria by what means. Russia has now shown the IS operation up as the half-hearted, Machiavellian farce that it has been from day one.

Nuland trolls RT, calls MSM ‘dynamic truthful opinion’

The “International Community” Comedy.

Following the Crimea annexation and the outbreak of the Donbass war, Russia was supposed to be isolated, despised. The Western media still try to refer to Russian “international isolation” yet it is clear that this is nonsense.

Russia’s Growing Isolation | The Diplomat

When Russia was supposed to be at the height of their isolation in May 2014, Russia signed the 30 year, hundreds of Billions of dollars oil and gas deal with China.

The spell was broken, the myth was exposed.

When the Western media refer to the “international community” this simply means the US and whatever current set of lackeys it has deployed. That’s all.
Sometimes the “International community” represents as few as three or four nations as was the case with the Iraq invasion.
It was not France, Germany or Russia who were isolated when it came to the invasion of Iraq. It was the US, Britain Australia and Poland who were outnumbered by more than 180 dissenting states

Moscow’s Moves in Syria: 5 Messages Russia Is Sending to the World | The National Interest Blog

Full Text of Vladimir Putin’s Dushanbe speech from here via here.

“I mentioned the situation in Syria and Iraq; they are the same as the situation in Afghanistan, in that they worry all of us. Please allow me to say a few words on the situation in this region, the situation around Syria.
The state of affairs there is very serious. The so-called Islamic State controls significant stretches of territory in Iraq and Syria. Terrorists are already publicly stating that they have targets set on Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem. Their plans include expanding activities to Europe, Russia, Central and Southeast Asia.
We are concerned by this, especially since militants undergoing ideological indoctrinations and military training by ISIS come from many nations around the world – including, unfortunately, European nations, the Russian Federation, and many former Soviet republics. And, of course, we are concerned by their possible return to our territories.
Basic common sense and a sense of responsibility for global and regional security require the international community to join forces against this threat. We need to set aside geopolitical ambitions, leave behind so-called double standards and the policy of direct or indirect use of individual terrorist groups to achieve one’s own opportunistic goals, including changes in undesirable governments and regimes.
As you know, Russia has proposed rapidly forming a broad coalition to counteract the extremists. It must unite everyone who is prepared to make, or is already making, an input into fighting terrorism, just as Iraq and Syria’s armed forces are doing today. We support the Syrian government – I want to say this – in countering terrorist aggression. We provide and will continue to provide the necessary military technology assistance and urge other nations to join in.
Clearly, without active participation by the Syrian authorities and military, without participation by the Syrian army, as the soldiers fighting with the Islamic State say, you cannot expel terrorists from this nation, as well as the region overall, it is impossible to protect the multi-ethnic and multi-faith people of Syria from elimination, enslavement and barbarism.
Of course, it is imperative to think about the political changes in Syria. And we know that President Assad is ready to involve the moderate segment of the opposition, the healthy opposition forces in these processes, in managing the state. But the need to join forces in the fight against terrorism is certainly at the forefront today. Without this, it is impossible to resolve the other urgent and growing problems, including the problem of refugees we are seeing now.
Incidentally, we are seeing something else: we are currently seeing attempts to practically put the blame on Russia for this problem, for its occurrence. As if the refugee problem grew because Russia supports the legitimate government in Syria.
First of all, I would like to note that the people of Syria are, first and foremost, fleeing the fighting, which is mostly due to external factors as a result of supplies of arms and other specialized equipment. People are feeling the atrocities of the terrorists. We know that they are committing atrocities there, that they are sacrificing people, destroying cultural monuments as I already mentioned, and so on. They are fleeing the radicals, first and foremost. And if Russia had not supported Syria, the situation in that nation would have been even worse than in Libya, and the flow of refugees would be even greater.
Second, the support of the legitimate government in Syria is not in any way related to the flow of refugees from nations like Libya, which I already mentioned, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, and many others. We were not the ones that destabilised the situation in those nations, in whole regions of the world. We did not destroy government institutions there, creating power vacuums that were immediately filled by terrorists. So nobody can say that we were the cause of this problem.
But right now, as I said, we need to focus on joining forces between the Syrian government, the Kurdish militia, the so-called moderate opposition, and nations in the region to fight the threat against Syria’s very statehood and the fight against terrorism – so that together, with our efforts combined, we can solve this problem.
I already spoke about the other issues that currently concern us, which we discussed today. In this respect, I would like to note that we plan to continue strengthening cooperation between our armed forces. We plan a whole set of activities in this area. I would like to also stress that our cooperation within the CSTO framework is certainly not directed against anybody. We are open to constructive cooperation, and that is precisely the approach that is reinforced in the final statement that will be signed today.
I am certain that we must resume concrete discussions on creating Euro-Atlantic systems for equitable and indivisible security; we need to carry out a full inventory of existing problems and disagreements. This analysis can be used to achieve a discussion of the principles of sustainable political development. The OSCE and other international organisations can be used to agree on legally binding guarantees concerning the indivisibility of security for all nations, achieve observance of important fundamental principles of international law (respecting the sovereignty of states, not meddling in their domestic affairs), and strengthen regulations on the inadmissibility of appeasing anti-state, anti-constitutional coups and the promotion of radical and extremist forces.”

Discontent in Donbass

The Situation.

The situation appears to be that the people of the Donbass region are trapped within the reality that Russia has achieved it’s goals and is seeking to move on from the Ukraine crisis whilst the Ukraine Government and their Western backers remain enraged by the many humiliations the Russian President has inflicted upon them over the past several years and are not willing to let the war come to an end.

The lives and interests of the people of the Donbass are clearly of secondary interest to all external parties to the conflict.

Dejan Beric interview on situation in DPR

The best recent explanation for what is currently happening is contained in this short video made by a Novorussian Serbian volunteer named Dejan Beric

The Minsk II agreement is being broken, the ceasefire never really happened, and at least two hundred deaths have occurred since the Minsk II agreement came into place, but intense fighting is largely confined to two small areas, the villages of Marinka and Shirokino that are partially held by both sides and the combatants are very close, within only hundreds of metres of each other.
Dejan Beric explains that shelling is taking place right across the contact line but the intense fighting is largely confined to these areas.

Ukraine: “Heavy weapons spotted in gov-controlled areas”- OSCE chief

Even the OCSE sleepwalkers recently noticed that the Ukraine military have violated the Minsk accords by returning their heavy weaponry to the front lines and using it with frequent civilian deaths . Deputy Chief of the OCSE team Alexander Hug had a curious choice of words to describe the situation.
“This build up of heavy weapons along the contact lines also leads to more destruction deaths and injuries to the civilian population.”
It is strange choice of words because it refers to the “build up” of Weapons as being the cause of the damage rather than their use.

[eng subs] “Vostok” brigade soldier Niemets [German] appeal to DPR command

When the large scale fighting ended in February the forces of Novorussia were achieving significant gains and causing severe losses to the Ukraine military. In the post Minsk 2 fighting the Ukraine military appear to have the initiative, previously secure positions of the DPR such as Donetsk Airport have come under renewed attack in recent weeks.
This sad video made by a German member of the Vostok battalion called “Niemets” alludes to a lack of training as the cause for the “results that have been seen.” as the soldier pleads for better training from the leadership of the Donetsk People’s Republic.

The Dawning of a Bitter Reality.

It seems to be slowly sinking in that the gains the Novorussian rebels made were highly dependent on the support of the Russian Federation and the RF has achieved all it needs in Eastern Ukraine, the RF now has the ability to prevent the Ukraine from joining NATO by either military or political means.

This appears to have been the goal of the Russian federation all along as indicated by their actions and so all the talk about the “new Hitler’ Putin “threatening Europe” with aggression was simply the typically “broad” and infantile Western propaganda nonsense heard on almost every issue from the controlled media.

[eng subs] Putin’s childhood friend, now living in Gorlovka: “RF has betrayed us, UA leave us alone”

The Opinion of Putin’s Childhood Friend.
In recent weeks a video appeared on the Kazzura Youtube channel titled “Putin’s childhood friend now living in Gorlovka RF has betrayed us, UA leave us alone” The video features an interview with a former Putin friend and schoolmate named Vladimir Alexandrovich Venzin.
The majority of the interview is an unremarkable retelling of Venzin’s connection with Putin, with the information that Putin wanted to be a spy as very young boy the only memorable part.

In the last quarter of the interview the subject matter changes to current events.

“Well, I have always been proud of my acquaintance with Volodya (Vladimir Putin) of our friendship. Just a year ago it was like that.”

“Now my opinion about him has changed dramatically of course. And it’s not just my opinion that has changed but that of all Donetsk residents. If just a year ago people were praising him like some god, then now people are cursing him. Because he has provoked such a situation here, provoked a war. A very real, full scale war and then “fled into the bushes.”
“If you compare what he said in spring 2014 to what he says now.. It’s like two completely different people.. It just hurt that we were used as cover for the operation of the“annexation of Crimea.”
“They just used people “in blind” as it is called. “
“But this, I think it’s dishonourable from Russia.and whereas a year ago we would all switch our television’s on every day waiting to hear that that Russia has started sending it’s troops.
Today people simply spit whenever they hear the name of Russia. Because Russia has betrayed Donbass.
Whereas a year ago people said that “Russia does not abandon it’s people.” then now they’re silent “as loud as possible.” about it.” (They speak loudly of other subjects to avoid mentioning this unpleasant truth)
This stunning denunciation is followed by an analysis of the motives behind the change.

“There might be many reasons here, his (Putin’s) rhetoric has changed dramatically….maybe some Russian oligarchs are pressing him or perhaps he submitted to the blackmail from the United States?
That is unlikely however as he is quite a strong willed person.. I do not know the reasons nor do I want to guess about them.”

The Interview Concludes with Vladimir Alexandrovich Venzin making a plea for Russian military assistance and a denunciation of the Ukraine Government.

“The situation is critical. Diplomatic measures do not help here. It should be done like Abkhazia here.” (Abkhazia is the largely unrecognised breakaway pro-Russian republic that is formally part of Georgia that Georgia attacked in 2008 following extensive provocation, enabling a crushing Russian military response where the RF Air force destroyed the military forces of Georgia over several weeks of a completely one sided battle. In the Ukraine this would translate as the Russian Air Force destroying all the Ukraine military units East of Kiev. The leader of Georgia at the time of the 2008 Abkhazia war was Mikheil Saakashvili now bizarrely appointed the Governor of Odessa oblast, presumably on the recommendation of the USA.)
“I’d like to appeal to all Ukrainians: Leave us alone. Let us live as we want. This is not your land, it is our land and you got it only due to a mistake thanks to “Grandpa Lenin”.“

[eng subs] Vladimir Solovyov explains RF policy and situation with Donbass/refugees

The Response from the Russian federation to the Perception of Betrayal.
Vladimir Solovyov is a prominent Russian television host and journalist with a perceived closeness to the Russian Government. Solovykov recently hosted a town hall meeting for refugees from the Donbass region of Eastern Ukraine. This video is also from the Kazzura channel.
The important part of the video begins with a geeky looking young man asking Solokyov a question.suggesting that the reunion of the Donetsk residents in Russia is simply:

“Basically how (to make) it so tha Donbass residents do not feel themselves betrayed?”

Vladimir Solovyov  “You see, this is such an interesting phrase. First of all no-one betrayed them as no-one has promised them anything yet. These are crucial moments which people are imagining things to themselves. Putin said that we will not allow the conflict to be solved by force. We won’t.”
Putin said that we will not allow the humanitarian disaster so Russia sends insane amounts of humanitarian cargoes. Of course I understand everything. But I have a different question.(you said) “Donbass mustn’t feel itself betrayed.” More than… well… a million people have arrived here from Donbass. Half of them are men. No-one knows what are they doing here. Well take arms and go defend your motherland. Because it’s like you want us to arrive and die, fight for you, (crowd applauds) And you arrive here and say (pretends to be an ape) “Gimme…We are refugees.” Wait a minute, Is this your Motherland? Then fight it back. But if it’s “Give me shit, give me spoon, teach me how to eat it”, it’s something new. It’s just that people should realise some responsibility for the decisions (they have made).”
So the message is pretty clear. Be grateful for what the RF has done for you and accept that we know best.

The Reality- the Bitter Truth of Proxy Wars.
The sad truth lurking behind the Donbass war is that despite the sincerity of many of the combatants, the war was a proxy war and only one strand in a widespread power struggle between the Western war party and the Russian Federation.
The only correct policy for a mid-sized and strategically placed nation such as the Ukraine is to never ever accept that you must choose sides but seek to have positive relationships, with both the EU/West and the Russian Federation. The Ukraine should never allow itself to be drawn into either camp but should seek positive relations with both at all times.

The people of the Donbass region have suffered terribly and the sad fact is that they are and will remain trapped between the interests of the great powers engaged in the current power struggle in Eastern Europe.

Has the Donbass War Restarted?

After several months of an increasingly fractured ceasefire major fighting has now resumed in the area of Marinka and Shirokino and given the fact that only half-hearted attempts have been made to resolve the crisis the full-scale resumption of the conflict is now apparently inevitable.

Grad rockets have returned, Armour has returned, small-scale offensive operations are underway on both sides and the scale of civilian casualties and property destruction has risen dramatically recently.

The Minsk agreement tried to put in place a framework for ending the conflict and represented a genuine opportunity to resolve the crisis peacefully but the will to enforce the Minsk agreement was never present within the Ukraine Government nor their main sponsor the United States. The comparatively rational Germans and French appear to have been completely marginalised.

Minsk agreement on Ukraine crisis: text in full – Telegraph

“Immediate and full ceasefire in particular districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts of Ukraine and its strict fulfilment as of 00.00 midnight (Kiev time) on Feb. 15, 2015.”

“Pull-out of all heavy weapons by both sides to equal distance with the aim of creation of a security zone on minimum 50 kilometres apart for artillery of 100mm calibre or more, and a security zone of 70km for MLRS and 140 kilometres for MLRS Tornado-S, Uragan, Smerch and tactical missile systems Tochka U. for Ukrainian troops, from actual line of contact; for armed formations of particular districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts of Ukraine, from the contact line in accordance with the Minsk memorandum as of Sept. 19, 2014 ”

“The pullout of the above mentioned heavy weapons has to start no later than the second day after the ceasefire and finish within 14 days. ”
“This process will be assisted by OSCE with the support of the Trilateral Contact Group. ”

“Effective monitoring and verification of ceasefire regime and pullout of heavy weapons by OSCE will be provided from the first day of pullout, using all necessary technical means such as satellites, drones, radio-location systems etc”.

On the first day after the pullout a dialogue is to start on modalities of conducting local elections in accordance with the Ukrainian legislation and the Law of Ukraine “On temporary Order of Local Self-Governance in Particular Districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts,” and also about the future of these districts based on the above mentioned law.

People can make claim and counterclaim about who shot first in any situation but the political process that was signed onto by the Ukraine Government has been ignored completely. All the political steps were completely ignored.

“Without delays, but no later than 30 days from the date of signing of this document, a resolution has to be approved by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, indicating the territory which falls under the special regime in accordance with the law “On temporary Order of Local Self-Governance in Particular Districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts,” based in the line set up by the Minsk Memorandum as of Sept. 19, 2014. ”

“Provide pardon and amnesty by way of enacting a law that forbids persecution and punishment of persons in relation to events that took place in particular departments of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts of Ukraine. ”

“Provide release and exchange of all hostages and illegally held persons, based on the principle of “all for all”. This process has to end – at the latest – on the fifth day after the pullout (of weapons). ”

“Provide safe access, delivery, storage and distribution of humanitarian aid to the needy, based on an international mechanism.”

“Define the modalities of a full restoration of social and economic connections, including social transfers, such as payments of pensions and other payments (income and revenue, timely payment of communal bills, restoration of tax payments within the framework of Ukrainian legal field) ”

“With this aim, Ukraine will restore management over the segment of its banking system in the districts affected by the conflict, and possibly, an international mechanism will be established to ease such transactions.”

“Restore full control over the state border by Ukrainian government in the whole conflict zone, which has to start on the first day after the local election and end after the full political regulation (local elections in particular districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts based on the law of Ukraine and Constitutional reform) by the end of 2015, on the condition of fulfilment of Point 11 – in consultations and in agreement with representatives of particular districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts within the framework of the Trilateral Contact Group. ”

“Pullout of all foreign armed formations, military equipment, and also mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine under OSCE supervision. Disarmament of all illegal groups.”
“Constitutional reform in Ukraine, with the new Constitution to come into effect by the end of 2015, the key element of which is decentralisation (taking into account peculiarities of particular districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts, agreed with representatives of these districts), and also approval of permanent legislation on special status of particular districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts in accordance with the measures spelt out in the footnotes, by the end of 2015. The Ukraine Government appears not to have ever tried to live up to the spirit of the Minsk agreement, did not once seek to engage in dialogue with the self-proclaimed Eastern Ukraine Republics despite pledging to do so when entering into the agreement.and the flow of refugees will now resume.”

Why is the US Supporting the abrogation of the Minsk agreement?

Minsk is an ambitious plan to completely end the conflict and reintegrate the parts of Donetsk and Lugansk outside the control of the Ukraine government back into the Ukraine after a process of political reform and fresh elections in these districts. The document clearly envisages the complete disbandment of the DPR and LPR armed formations also, following elections.

Both sides agreed to the Minsk accords, it is not a one sided document and it is a plan for the reunification of the Ukraine and the restoration of the territorial integrity of the Ukraine (minus Crimea )

Why did the Ukraine Government sign up to this (twice) if they had no intent on engaging in the requisite political actions required of them under the agreement?

The Ukraine government have dishonoured themselves with their conduct (no, they do not care) and they have also dishonoured and made fools of all of the sponsors of this agreement.

Brzezinski Explains Obama.

Any wondering why the US Obama government has done a positive thing by seeking rapprochement with Iran and at the same time Obama is saying the most ridiculous things he has said on any subject about Russia

Obama lambasts Putin: you’re wrecking Russia to recreate Soviet empire | World news | The Guardian

and considers the policies incompatible needs to understand that the “wizard” standing behind the Obama marionette is Zbigniew Brzezinski and suddenly it all makes sense. Nuland and Pyatt are not rogue Neocons, they are team players, also working for Brzezinski who is obsessed with Russia and long has advised the use of Iran as an ally against Russia, that is the reason for the wildly differing policies between rationality and diplomacy with Iran but support for the most bellicose and destructive forces in Eastern Europe. This group also includes George Soros, this is the same faction.

This also explains the indifference towards Israel, which is seen (fairly) as being completely untrustworthy, but more importantly the Middle East is of secondary interest as a battle ground, it is more the place to gather energy allies and other allies to use against Russia.

Dozens, hundreds or thousands of non combatants will lose their homes and their lives and it is already happening. Ukraine: ‘Over 90 people injured in Donetsk shelling’- DPR’s Basurin

There is literally zero chance that the Ukraine Government forces will be able to reclaim the territory of the self proclaimed Republics of the Donbass as whatever force needs to be applied to prevent that from happening will be supplied from Russia.

The Government of Russia has clearly decided that the Ukraine joining NATO represents an unacceptable security threat. The continued existence of the Eastern Republics, Donetsk and Lugansk within the Ukraine guarantees that this goal will be achieved. Whether through politics or the force of arms the LPR and DPR exist for Russia as the simple low cost tools that enable Russia to prevent the Ukraine joining NATO for the foreseeable future.

The Novorussians for their part are extremely unlikely to be able to take Mariupol or make any significant territorial gains. Any attempt to attack Mariupol will likely see them lose the moral high ground as they will suddenly be the outside force attacking a large civilian population center. Playing the role the Ukraine military has played over the past year. That of the destroyer.

Donetsk is burning .(again)
Donetsk burning again.

It is impossible to say how far this will go or how many more will die but nothing good will come from this.

The bravado and delusion of the Ukraine forces seems to return undiminished within weeks or months of the last devastating defeat. They seem to go through the motions of a ceasefire, as they rebuild their positions and then suffer a near identical fate once again.

Ukraine Military Shells Strike the Area of the Donetsk Airport. A familiar half forgotten sight.
Ukraine Military Shells Strike the Area of the Donetsk Airport. A familiar half forgotten sight.

The Novorussians appear to have made a genuine attempt to respect the ceasefire but their commitment understandably dissolved in the face of constant provocations from the Ukraine side that never paid the ceasefire any heed.Certainly within weeks the attacks resumed.

The Novorussian forces have also been conducting small scale offensive operations for the past several months. It can only be hoped that the War is not escalated significantly.There is unlimited potential for carnage here potentially. \\

US, Canadian and British “trainers” are on the ground. Only small steps away from participation in the war.

Sanity Can Still Prevail.

The death toll from the war in the Donbass region at the start of June is quoted at 6400, approximately ywo hundred people have died in the almost four months of “ceasefire”. However many people  are added to this tragic toll before the war ends, their deaths will have been unnecessary and the result primarily of the bellicosity and delusion of the major Western powers who for reasons that remain unfathomable, believe they have the right to rule the world. Astonishing when you consider the catastrophic track record of destroying nations over the past decade.

The deluded Western elite apparently still believe that they can pose as the forces of salvation and righteousness, the sole guardians of wisdom and the owners of the only way with both a right and an obligation to achieve total world domination regardless of the delusional nature of the goal or the human cost.

These people need to be completely removed from power forever or the madness and carnage will know no end.

Ukraine’s Poroshenko bans Soviet symbols – BBC News

“Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has signed into law legislation that bans the use of communist symbols.
It is part of a package of laws designed to make a complete break with the country’s Soviet past and bring the country closer to Europe. But critics say the move severely restricts free speech and will divide society. ”

This is a brief overview from Stephen Lendman at Global Research.

Kiev Recognizes Ultranationalist Nazi Era Collaborators as Freedom Fighters | Global Research

“Kiev’s regime is a US-installed, illegitimate, lawless, Nazi infested, fascist police state in Europe’s heartland – waging naked aggression on its own people, risking regional peace and stability. Russians, Jews and others are vilified. Rule by intimidation is official policy.”

“In April, a “decommunization” process began – banning communist and Soviet era symbols and values, including longstanding statues and street names.”

It was such a bizarre thing to do, even by the standards of the Nuland/Pyatt authored walking disaster that is the Kiev  government that it took me a while to understand what they were trying to do with this.
This seems to be a truly pathetic attempt to portray the forces opposing the Kiev US puppet government as simply recalcitrants nostalgic for the the Soviet Union,

The really strange thing about this is that the groups fighting the Kiev government do not use Soviet symbols particularly that I have noticed. It is not there in the flag of the DPR.

Flag of the Donetsk People's Republic.

Nor in the near identical flag of the Lugansk enclave.

Soviet symbols banned Nazi symbols on Parade!

What really stands out is the way that various paramilitary groups allied with the the Ukraine government routinely and explicitly use the symbols of fascist Nazi Germany including on the very flag of the Azov battalion!

All similarities with Nazi symbology are purely coincidental. These are our lads after all.
The SS inspired Azov group flag.
The Azov badge has several Nazi inspired (and dark occultist imspired) elements.

By banning the use of Soviet symbology whilst offering no sanction for the use of NAZI symbology the Ukraine government is only making clear their approval of the use of fascist ideology and symbology in the forces fighting on their side.

And how absolutely laughable of the Ukraine government to attempt to show their separation from and opposition to  Soviet totalitarianism with their own, comically stupid show of totalitarianism.

The Donbass War Restarting: Peski Clashes

The Donbass War Restarting.

Sadly it appears that the Donbass War is restarting. That the Ukraine Government was simply trying to buy time, lick their wounds and plead for more money from their Western sponsors.

The Clashes are now persistent and intensifying and the Novorussian forces are now apparently conducting their own offensive guerrilla operations in response to the Ukraine Forces constant provocations. as this Kazzura video seems to indicate.

[eng subs] Recon by fire mission in Shirokino. 14/03/15, combat footage by “Khrustalik”

The best thing obviously would be for the war to end and never restart and for the Novorussians and the Ukraine Government to come to an amicable and political long term solution.

Some Western commentators opine that Russia has invaded East Ukraine and is trying to seize the Donbass region and that is simply not the case. Russia has no intent whatsoever to allow the Donbass to formally break from the Ukraine. Russia’s goal is simple, they want the Ukraine not to join NATO, the Novorussian forces and the people of the Donbass are essentially Russia’s willing and able counterweight to the Kiev Western puppets.

Russia has clearly provided material to the Novorussian forces but it has actually been very little.

The Official Russian Military budget is over $40 billion a year whereas the Ukraine Military budget is less than two. The nation is going broke and the support from the West has almost all been rhetorical.

NATO do not want to fight a war against Russia. Bullying thugs will never ever assail an enemy with real claws, ever. The whole fabricated “Russia” threat is just a fund raising exercise and relevance renewal for NATO. It is a scam. Russia is going to get a “colour revolution” whether they like it or not. There is no other way.

NATO has nowhere near the size nor quality of forces to even dream of launching actual offensive operations against Russian territory and the same is vice versa. It is a non-starter with devastating, unbearable losses on both sides inevitable.

Presumably this will play out in much the same way as the past two cease fires. The fighting will become more open, the Novorussians will win a small but significant territorial gain. The French  and Germans will again plead with Poroshenko to stop and at some point he will presumably listen.

What they need to understand is that they are not going to achieve anything because Russia can turn up the support to the Novorussian ten or even one hundred times what the support is today. They are providing the bare minimum and are capable of boosting the support to whatever level required to hold the strongholds of Luhansk and Donetsk, no matter how much support from the West the Ukraine receives .

NATO, perhaps due to the level of corruption in Kiev, has actually pledged very little financial military support to the Ukraine forces who will remain out-thought and out gunned, no matter what NATO does and should therefore stop the nonsense, accept their losses and try and get on with rebuilding the Ukrainian state and the economy.

Putin Death Rumours, Astonishing Odessa Survivor’s Story and the Donbass War Restarting?

The in all likelihood alive and well Russian President.
The in all likelihood alive and well Russian President.

Putin Rumours

Update.. March 17th, 2015.

The Russian President has reappeared. He seems to have had influenza or a bad cold.

Russia: Putin speaks out against media rumour mill

The President of the Russian federation has cancelled two scheduled meetings including one scheduled for March 12th with the leader of Kazakhstan. This has led to rumours that Putin is dead. Without knowing I will assume the rumours are simply untrue. It was very interesting that this story was being disseminated by Debkafile, a well known Israeli intelligence front.

Perhaps there is some foundation to the rumours or perhaps certain parties are trying to “flush him out” for some reason. Cause him to make a public appearance. It was bizarre to watch the British Defence Secretary Hammond interviewed by a journalist who suggested that the British Government should release details of Putin and associates finances. A suggestion the Defence Secretary responded to with enthusiasm. This came after a speech during which the Defence Secretary bizarrely tried to cast the Russian federation as “perhaps the greatest threat to the Security of the UK in the world.” To which I would ask what on earth is he talking about? By what magical equation do the Russian military pose the slightest threat to the UK?

The only circumstances in which Russia could ever pose a threat to the UK would be as part of a major nuclear war. Russia is not going to begin a nuclear war against the West guaranteed to lead to the complete destruction of Russia so therefore unless you are planning to start a nuclear war, Russia poses no threat to the UK whatsoever.

As far as the finances go, what a joke to hear a journalist pleading with the Government to do his job for him. If you think they should be published pal, publish them.

The whole financial dirt threat is hilarious because once you start on this road, it will be a two way street with a lot of dirt and graft to go around on both sides I am sure. I hope it happens. Perhaps the British government believes it’s connections to filth are so well known and documented that fresh revelations will do no further damage?

Astonishing Odessa Survivor Account.

[eng subs] Interview with Odessa massacre survivor, recently released from UA prison

The way the audio has been altered to protect the anonymity is a little off-putting, but this witness account of the Odessa massacre in May 2014 certainly rings true and fits the known facts. The police stood by and watched as protesters were murdered by fascist thugs.

Here is a brief flavour.

Donbass War Restarting?

[eng subs] Clashes in Shirokino 10/03/15

Again a video from the brilliant albeit partisan Kazzura channel.

Clashes in Shirokino are daily but small scale. The telling detail I picked up from the video was that according to the Novorussian military forces, the forces opposing them of the Azov battalion have recently been rotated. A fresh group of troops is attacking them apparently and if the Kiev government and their Western backers still have not understood then they will receive the same message again. The message of Ilovaisk and Debaltsevo . The message they received at the Donetsk International Airport and the message is obvious.

The Message.

Since the end of the Cold war, thirteen former Eastern bloc states have joined NATO despite Western pledges not to encroach on the territory Russia  voluntarily and peacefully vacated. Russia has decided that there will not be a fourteenth new NATO member, at least not the Ukraine and Russia is willing to go to the wall to prevent the Ukraine joining NATO. Are the Western leadership so obsessed with total world domination that they are willing to engage in war with Russia in order to get the Ukraine into NATO?

If so why? Given that it makes no difference at all to the life of Westerners whether the Ukraine is in NATO or not it seems completely absurd.

The CIA Strikes Back in Moscow?

Shrine to slain Russian opposition figure Boris Nemtsov in Moscow.
Shrine to slain Russian opposition figure Boris Nemtsov in Moscow.

February 28th, 2015.

It has seemed clear for several years that the consensus in Empire HQ is that Russia will have to be destroyed using an engineered colour revolution because Russia is far too well armed to risk an open military attack. So the NGO’s were sent out with their CIA cash laundered by the “democracy” promoting “philanthropist” George Soros and they failed in 2011, but the struggle goes on and even if it takes them another twenty years, destroying Russia will remain a key goal until the task is complete. Russia is too powerful and prone to bouts of independent action to be tolerable to the New World Order it seems.

The murder yesterday of the well credentialed but mid ranking Russian opposition figure Boris Nemtsov should be seen in this context. Logic suggests that Nemtsov was a “disposable hero” murdered by Western backed elements in the hope of breathing life into a faltering Russian “democratic revolution”.

Ilya Yashin at the scene.
Ilya Yashin at the scene.

Writing in 2012, the Saker had a number of interesting observations about a number of the leading figures embroiled in this event especially the unbelievably dubious pair of Ilya Yashin and Kseniya Sobchak both of whom were apparently present at the murder scene. This is his very unkind description of the former lovers Yashin and Sobchak “one nutcase (Yashin) and one “career tart”, literally (Sobchak)”

This is a comment attributed to Yashin in the wake of the Nemtsov killing.

“Boris was the most outspoken critic of Putin and the most charismatic leader of the opposition and his dead body found 100 yards from the Kremlin is a clear message to all the opposition activists and all people who do not support the Kremlin This act of political terror is clearly aimed to stun and horrify the opposition to the Putin regime on the eve of the march we will now hold as a mourning march as originally planned on Sunday.”

Ilya Yashin and Kseniya Sobchak

(Interestingly, despite his very public presence at the murder scene, Ilya Yashin claimed that he had not seen Nemtsov for two days.)

This is the description of Nemtsov from the same 2012 article.
“The main guy in all this drama is Boris Nemtsov. He is a very good speaker, he is charming, charismatic and has a great sense of humor. By far the smartest of all of these dissidents and the most valuable to the CIA. He is also the only one who was tipped off and managed to hide from the authorities “

Later in the same article we learn that in 2012

“According to official Russian sources, the cops found over 1’000’000 Euros (one million!) in spread out in about 100 envelopes in the apartments of Yashin and Sobchak.”

Kseniya Sobchak

In the short term the killing of Nemtsov will probably achieve very little for the plotters but it is all part of building their narrative about Putin and Russia. The more mud that can be thrown the better. All doubt in my mind regarding the intent and source of this crime was removed by this comment from the Ukraine President, a reliable barometer.

“Petro Poroshenko, the Ukrainian president, said that Mr Nemtsov had been killed because he was planning to disclose evidence of Russia’s involvement in the war in east Ukraine.
“He said he would reveal persuasive evidence of the involvement of Russian armed forces in Ukraine. Someone was very afraid of this … They killed him,” Mr Poroshenko said.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/11442446/Boris-Nemtsov-murder-Kremlin-accused-of-whitewash-over-probe-into-leading-opposition-figures-killing.html

There are some pretty obvious logical fallacies here along with the speaker’s track record of consistent lies. The whole idea that the Russian assistance to the Novorussian rebels is a big dirty secret that Moscow fears will be discovered is a complete joke on several different levels.

For starters people in Russia know full well that Russia has been supporting the Novorussian rebels in their successful defensive  military campaign in defence of the people of the Donbass. They know about it and they support it. That’s why Putin’s approval levels run as high as 85%, people in Russia support the policies. So this whole idea that the Kremlin is running around desperately trying to suppress news of what has been for them a low cost military and political triumph is actually farcical. Poroshenko tells some of the silliest lies I have ever heard. It is very helpful really. They had to juice up their rally and their movement. They can’t really do anything militarily so they had to show their rage in other ways, they are pretty obvious.

In possibly related news, a key official of the former Yanukovych government Mykhalo Chechetov fell to his death from his 17th floor Kiev balcony today.

“Mr Nemtsov’s killing was one of two suspicious deaths on Friday that have been linked to the ongoing Ukraine crisis. Mykhalo Chechetov, a leading ally of Viktor Yanukovych, the pro-Russian former president, was found dead after falling from his 17th floor flat in Kiev in an apparent suicide. He was facing charges of abuse of power for his role in attempts to crush the protests that eventually toppled the former president.”

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/11442446/Boris-Nemtsov-murder-Kremlin-accused-of-whitewash-over-probe-into-leading-opposition-figures-killing.html

The events in the Donbass region of Ukraine have clearly caused a great deal of consternation within the Empire. The pathetic, truly pathetic article “Save the New Ukraine.” penned by NWO paragons Bernard Henri Levy and George Soros make the level of commitment to the Ukraine junta and their total incomprehension of what has happened in the Donbass over the past eight or nine months completely clear. This is only one small provocation on the road to regime change in Russia. Many more disposable heroes will presumably share the unfortunate fate of Boris Nemtsov in the psychopathic pursuit of “victory” over Russia.
