Junta strongman Poroshenko is a gibbering idiot… read this. Novorossiya didn’t invade the Ukraine… the Ukraine invaded Novorossiya. Novorossiya didn’t deliberately target civilian neighbourhoods in the Ukraine… the Ukraine deliberately targeted civilian neighbourhoods in Novorossiya. Novorossiya didn’t bomb civilians in the Ukraine… the Ukraine bombed civilians in Novorossiya. The Ukrainian government is the result of an illegal and violent coup against the legitimate president and his cabinet. The Novorossiya government is the result of a peaceful referendum amongst the people, who voted to leave the Ukraine. I seem to think that if there’s any accusation of “terrorism”, it lies at the feet of the Ukrainian putschist junta, NOT the popularly elected Novorossiyan people’s government.
Furthermore, a putschist leader ranted that there would be tens of thousands of casualties in a coming war. At present, the junta forces are on the run… its soldiers don’t want to fight, there are growing protests in the Western Ukraine, Rusin soldiers left the front and went home to Podkarpatskaya. With what means is the junta going to wage such a war with? It doesn’t have the trained manpower… its army melts away via desertion, casualties, and “Order Nr 1″-style disobedience. It doesn’t have the resources… adulterated bread is on sale in Kiev and there’s no hot water in working-class districts. It doesn’t have popular support… most men dodge the draft and most people openly are against the war (there are pockets of “support” in Kiev and the Lvovshchina, but friends inform me that most of that is insincere… “When the fascists roam the streets with clubs, normal people repeat what the fascists want to hear”).
There has been NO condemnation of this from the UGKTs and the schismatical conventicles of “Ukrainian Orthodox”. It’s time for all good Russian Orthodox in the diaspora (ROCOR, MP, and OCA) to break all ties with the UGKTs and all “Ukrainian Orthodox” groups. They refuse to condemn evil… indeed, through their support of the junta, they give overt and willing support to evil. Unfortunately, the hierarchy and clergy of so-called “Byzantine Catholics” in the USA support the junta. A friend of mine in Pittsburgh PA tells me that the ordinary believers are for Holy Rus… the priests and bishops kiss the junta’s ass… openly and without reservation (my contact was especially bitter about a married priest from Eastern Europe who wouldn’t stand up for Rusin people and their rights). We should break all ties, official and unofficial, formal and informal, institutional and personal, with the UGKTs and with all “Ukrainian Orthodox”… they support those who literally attack the canonical Church, kill and brutalise its clergy, and destroy our parishes and monasteries. We should break all such ties with the Byzantine Catholic hierarchy, its clergy, and all of its institutions… they should know that supporting evil has its consequences. The only innocents are most of the Byzantine Catholic believers… whom we should encourage to “come home”.
Evil is evil… well, the UGKTs hasn’t changed its spots, has it? Slipy blessed the SS murderers… Shevchuk blesses the Natsgadi murderers. They’ll do what they’ll do… but we needn’t applaud it by having anything to do with them. It’s time to show our stand. Whom do you stand with? Do you stand with our persecuted brethren in Novorossiya or do you stand with the fascist Uniate/schismatical murderers? That’s the choice on offer. Choose well.
