Rossiya-24 TV stated that five people died and one wounded in an attack on a checkpoint in Slavyansk, saying, “Unidentified gunmen who attacked a checkpoint in the north of the town shot and killed three residents of Slavyansk. They wounded another person, who’s in hospital in critical condition. Several cars drove up to the checkpoint and those inside the cars open fire. The opolchenie promptly reacted, returning fire, killing two attackers”. The opolchenie seized two cars. They found emblems of the Right Sector terrorist group, many standard-issue Ukrainian Army firearms, as well as plastic explosives, smoke pellets, American-made night-vision devices, and maps based on aerial photographs in the cars. The patriots are in the process of identifying the attackers.
This speaks volumes of the junta, the Right Sector, and their American puppeteers. The bastards desecrated Holy Easter. Full stop. Viktor Yanukovich wouldn’t have done that. However, it IS acceptable to the USA and to John McCain. It IS acceptable to Yuliya, Turchinov, and Yatsenyuk (the last-named is a stinking Scientologist, a cultist of the worst-possible sort). How much lower can they sink?
On Sunday, Vyacheslav Ponomaryov, People’s Mayor and opolchenie commander in Slavyansk said that return fire injured or killed up to seven gunmen who attacked a local checkpoint overnight. He confirmed that the shootout killed one opolchenie fighter and injured two others. Eyewitnesses told RIA-Novosti that they saw the gunmen taking both killed and injured people away with them. Ponomaryov said that four cars drove by the checkpoint at around 02.00 local time (16.00 PDT. 19.00 EDT 19 April. 00.00 BST. 03.00 MSK. 13.00 AEST) and opened fire at the opolchenie, who were celebrating Easter Sunday. Later, 20 opolchenie arrived at the scene and exchanged fire with the gunmen. The patriots seriously damaged two cars in the shootout. The MVDU and SBU have no comment as of yet.
The armed incident that occurred early Sunday morning in Slavyansk outraged the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID), which said, “The so-called Right Sector violated the eastern ceasefire in Slavyansk on 20 April through an armed attack, in which innocent civilians died. Local residents seized the vehicles of the attackers in which they discovered arms, aerial maps of the area, and Right Sector paraphernalia. This militant provocation enrages the Russian side, as it’s a sign that the authorities in Kiev are reluctant to bridle and disarm nationalists and extremists. It’s surprising that the tragedy occurred after the signing on 17 April in Geneva of the final statement of the quadrilateral meeting of representatives of Russia, the USA, the EU, and the Ukraine, which called for refraining from any violent actions, intimidation, or provocations. The Russian side insists that the Ukrainian side strictly fulfil its commitments on the de-escalation the situation in southeast Ukraine”.
Lawlessness reigns in junta-controlled areas… law and order reign in the People’s Republic areas. One of these things is not like the other. The USA supports the anarchists… fancy that. If most Americans knew the truth of the matter, it’d outrage them… the USA is against the side that respects the cops and lawful order (do note that the opolchenie treats the cops with honour, and the cops reciprocate), and it supports the side that uses brutal goons as its “muscle”… think on that, if you will.
On Sunday, Vyacheslav Ponomaryov, People’s Mayor and opolchenie commander in Slavyansk said that a curfew is now in force after an overnight shootout which injured two passers-by. The curfew will run from 00.00 to 06.00, people should stay off the streets. The move came after unknown gunmen opened fire in downtown Slavyansk, which has been under siege since last weekend when the junta announced an “anti-terrorist operation” against patriot elements in the southeast. Both people injured in the attack are in satisfactory condition, doctors at the central hospital in Slavyansk said.
On Sunday, Vyacheslav Ponomaryov, People’s Mayor and opolchenie commander in Slavyansk, asked Russia to send peacekeepers to the eastern Ukraine to protect civilians from National Guard and Right Sector terrorists. At an emergency press conference in the wake of last night’s armed clashes he said, “They kill our people. They don’t talk to us; they just kill us. The town is actually under siege by the Right Sector. Only Russia can protect civilians from the Right Sector, which is why I decided to ask Russian President Vladimir Putin to send peacekeepers to Donetsk and Lugansk Oblasts”.
An aide to the commander of the opolchenie told RIA-Novosti that his fighters captured one of the gunmen who attacked a checkpoint in Slavyansk early on Sunday. The young man lost contact with his group and tried to get out of Slavyansk by trying to hitchhike towards Kharkov; the 22-year-old suspected gunman is a member of the far-right Right Sector terrorist movement.
On Sunday, Vyacheslav Ponomaryov, People’s Mayor and opolchenie commander in Slavyansk, told ITAR-TASS that the opolchenie in Slavyansk are on alert over reports about plans to stage attacks on checkpoints and administrative buildings occupied by the Donetsk People’s Republic, saying, “We have information that they plan to attack our positions soon. We’re getting prepared to defend ourselves”. Ponomaryov stated that intel came in since the morning about movements of armed people around the town. Attempts to start talks failed. It isn’t yet clear whether these people are regular army personnel. Donetsk Republic officials believe they’re Right Sector terrorists. Earlier on Sunday, opolchenie sources said that they arrested Irma Krat, a Euromaidan terrorist suspected of subversive activities. According to other reports, a Right Sector terrorist, a young man from Vinnitsa in the western Ukraine, strayed from his group and surrendered to the Slavyansk opolchenie.
The Right Sector might be carrying out CIA orders, to destabilise the situation, to bring down the unthrifty junta, so that Langley can put more-complaisant toads in place… that’s what they did with Diem, after all. Langley isn’t known for any humanity… “Bring us food or be food yourselves” is its real motto.
