On Tuesday, President V V Putin said during a RF Security Council meeting that none of the scenarios in the developing crisis in the Ukraine is good, “If we return to similar scenarios, as a whole, as I’ve already said, then, this is absolutely unacceptable and counterproductive. This is destroying the modern world order. Undoubtedly, if they apply such methods to Russia, they won’t work. Our people, our Russian citizens won’t let that happen and they’d never accept [this]”.
The Verkhovnaya Rada approved a presidential decree on limited mobilisation at a session of 232 lawmakers, meeting the required minimum of 226 votes. The junta ordered this limited mobilization due to events in the former eastern Ukraine, “which led to deaths among civilians, military, and specialists of the Ukrainian armed forces and security agencies in the eastern regions of the country (sic)”. Earlier, Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council (SNBOU) Secretary A V Paruby stated that limited mobilization was needed for the rotation of special forces in the conflict zone in the country’s east as well as to strengthen troop numbers. According to the law, limited mobilisation shall take place in all 24 oblasts and in the special city of Kiev. Mobilisation will require 45 days from the day of the law’s enactment. Besides conscripting men, the junta plans to requisition vehicles in accordance with “concrete mobilisation plans concerning the reserves”.
This is the THIRD mobilisation called by the junta. “What would happen if they called a war and no one came”… well, it’s happened here. There’s massive draft dodging, even in Galicia. The junta’s losses are FAR higher than they admit… and the moms know it. In short, the junta’s army is falling to pieces… there’s massive draft dodging, heavy casualties due to incompetent Galician Uniate “leadership”, much of the equipment is not only outdated, it’s conked out, and the troops aren’t getting enough food due to massive theft by shits like Poroshenko, Kolomoisky, and Yatsenyuk. It’s only a matter of time before the junta forces collapse or there’s a counter-coup in Kiev.
On Monday, Ken Livingstone, a former London mayor and a prominent British politician, told RT TV, “The simple fact is Ukraine is a dysfunctional country, it isn’t being brought together by its new president [P A Poroshenko], who needs to offer reassurance both to the people in the eastern Ukraine (sic) and to Russian people that the Ukraine won’t become a NATO member and won’t bring nuclear weapons onto its soil threatening Russia. Kiev also needs to reassure residents of the eastern Ukraine (sic) that they aren’t in any way dominated or treated as second-class citizens. They need some sort of devolved government like the one we have here in Britain for our Welsh and Scottish minorities. As of now, it looks like Kiev isn’t ready to make any concessions that could end this civil war. Let’s make it clear, Russia didn’t destabilise the Ukraine. The Ukraine has had a succession of pretty awful governments, it’s a divided nation, it was put together hurriedly after the collapse of the USSR. Moscow just wants a secure stable state on the border with Russia that isn’t a threat to it“.
On Tuesday, N P Patrushev, Secretary of the RF Russian Security Council said during a meeting of the Council in Moscow, “Western henchmen seized power [in the Ukraine], who, in my opinion, lost to some extent their sovereignty and independence in decision-making. They simply follow orders. The Western-backed leaders disregard objective information and interpret the facts the way that fits their political goals. We should draw the right conclusions from the unfolding events in the Ukraine, for the Ukrainian coup d’état wouldn’t have taken place if the interests of certain Western states coincided with the actions of the Ukrainian government at that time”. President V V Putin chaired the meeting of the Security Council. He said, “So-called colour revolutions are employed to change disfavoured regimes, or, plainly speaking, they’re coups d’état engineered and funded from outside. Often, in different parts of the world, they use the internal problems of disfavoured regimes to destabilise such countries. Most often they bet on radical nationalists, if not simply neo-fascist fundamentalist elements, as they did in the post-Soviet states, as is happening in the Ukraine now”.
On Tuesday, Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) opolchenie sources posted on the official DNR Twitter page, “DNR forces secured Donetsk Airport. We thwarted the enemy’s attempts to seize it. The enemy’s armoured units suffered serious losses. We also stopped the enemy’s offensive near Donetsk; our forces managed to advance on several fronts”.
