11 October 2014. The Mother-Motherland Calls! Four Generations of Courage…

00 Four Generations of Courage. 11.10.14

______________________________

This requires no commentary. Another invader has tried to put their hands around Holy Rus’ neck. It shall fail… as all invaders failed in the end. In this case, the Americans won’t back their neo-Nazi protegés in the Ukraine… there’s nothing left in the larder… they spent it all on bootless land wars in South Asia and in insane tax giveaways to the Affluent Effluent. It’s as it always has been… all those who march on Russia will be put to death. The Banderovtsy Uniate filth will not prevail…

RUSSIANS FORWARD!

22 September 2014. Here Be Those Nasty Ol’ Russian Soldiers that the Western Media Bloviates About…

______________________________

There’s much bloviation about Russian military men in the Western punditocracy… they’re all mediocrities at best… they’re brutal rapists, thugs, and thieves… they’re completely clueless as compared to their Western counterparts… they’re just not REAL military men (to be military men in the Western sense, one has to devastate civilian neighbourhoods without mercy, use torture when you feel like it, force-feed prisoners, call all your enemies “terrorists”, and bomb ‘em all into the Stone Age without any moral qualms whatsoever). Nope… Russian soldiers aren’t like that at all. They’re normal human beings, as the above image testifies… and their professional standards are as high as anyone else’s. The USA lacks the money, means, manpower, and will to face Russia, and that’s that. In any case, Russians ARE patriotic and WILL fight for their Motherland,,, they’re not service-evading cowards like the leading elements of the US Republican Party… don’t attend to rightwing jerks like George Will, Rich Lowry, Rod Dreher, or the bloviators at Stratfor (they aren’t real intel people… they’re media poseurs)… they DO have an agenda…

Shoigu sez Ukie Nationalist Terrorists Attacking Civilians

russian-soldiers

______________________________

On Thursday, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said, “‘National Guard’ units, as well as battalions of Right Sector extremists, are attacking civilians. SBU and MVDU elements left in Donetsk and Lugansk are carrying out this crackdown on civilians. According to our data, they’ve deployed a contingent consisting of over 11,000 troops, equipped with automatic weapons. The operation involves about 160 tanks, more than 230 AIFVs and APCs, at least 150 guns and mortars, and many aircraft”.

Editor:

This is the total of the military power left to the junta (it’s the size of a reinforced motor rifle division, about 9 motor rifle battalions and 4 tank battalions (if full strength). I’d say that most of the standing forces refused to move against their own people (shades of August 1991, no?), so, the junta is using the few Galician troops loyal to them, along with untrained and undisciplined “National Guard” and Right Sector rabble. Understand this… VVP HAS to act if the junta murders civilians. If he doesn’t, he loses all cred in Russia… and he WON’T do that.

By the way, the present junta force is an ad hoc unit, not a formed element that’s been in existence for some time. That is, it’d be militarily useless against a real standing force. That is, the Russian forces would smash it easily. Mind you, there’d be casualties, many of the Galician Uniate terrorists would go to ground, and it’d be the devil itself to root them out (although the eastern population wouldn’t shelter them, save for the miniscule Uniate population). By the way, the junta force is only about 25 percent larger than the forces deployed by Georgia in ’08 in South Ossetia. That is, Russia could wax their ass with a similar force to the one it deployed then, two motorised rifle divisions and two airborne divisions. The opolchenie would guard their LOC and act as local garrisons, as the South Ossetian locals did in ’08, freeing the Russian troops for manoeuvre operations (on the other hand, the junta forces would have to detail some of their units to guard the LOC to Kiev and secure restive towns). Many shortcomings came out after that war… the Minoborony hasn’t been idle in putting them right.

The chess pieces are on the board… however, never forget, they’re not inanimate tokens, they’re human beings. Blood will flow… God do preserve the people of Little Russia and New Russia.

Ukrainian Neofascists Want the Bomb… The Junta Rearranges the Deck-Chairs on the Titanic

Do you want Tyagnibok to have access to this? Any questions?

______________________________

On Thursday, military units stationed in the Crimea formerly subordinate to the Minoborony Ukrainy raised Russian flags. The St Andrew banner now flies over 6 warships and 25 auxiliary vessels formerly of the Ukrainian Navy. A Republic of the Crimea (RK) official said, “The commanders of 72 military units, installations, and ships under the Minoborony Ukrainy decided to voluntarily join the Russian Armed Forces for further military service”.

Editor:

When they took the oath of allegiance to Russia, their pay shot up four times… and Russia pays it in full, unlike the Ukrainian kleptocracy under the Timoshenko junta. You can see why the overwhelming majority of Ukie soldiers in the Crimea chose service for Russia… you can’t eat “independence”.

On Thursday, two People’s Deputies from the Fatherland faction (Timoshenko clique) and one from the UDAR faction (Klichko clique) submitted a draft law denouncing the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) of 1 July 1968 to the Rump Rada. The draft will go to the relevant committees for a review. Neofascist People’s Deputy Lyashko demanded at the plenary session on Thursday that the Ukraine should acquire nuclear arms.

Editor:

Aren’t you glad that the junta doesn’t have the bomb? If it did, the unhinged fanatics would fire a missile at Moscow out of sheer hate and for shits n’ giggles. We need to put this feral junta down before it does something goofy and downright murderous. Reflect on the fact that American neocons support these nutters… and that certain elements in our Church do, too (to our shame, using “Pro-Life” as a figleaf). Ukrainian nationalists aren’t wrapped overly tightly (they defile Christmas parties with anti-Russian diatribes and performances… that’s fanatical). I’ve seen ‘em up close… they’re scary and they mean every hateful word that they drool… if you don’t think so, you’ll live to regret your error…

On Thursday, UNIAN reported that a fire broke out in a tank depot in Krivoy Rog, (Dnepropetrovsk Oblast), saying, “A fire broke out at 17.50 (19.50 MSK) at the base of the 17 Separate Tank Brigade of the VI Army Corps in Krivoy Rog, Dnepropetrovsk Oblast. Preliminary reports stated that the fire started in the unit’s equipment depot”. Two tanks with full ammunition burst into flames in a garage. Firemen put out the fire at 21.00 MSK, but as of 22.30 MSK, rounds were still cooking off and exploding. The authorities evacuated residents near the base. Half an hour later, people started to go back home. There were no reports on the cause of the incident, nor are there any reported injuries.

President Vladimir Putin stated at a meeting of the Russian Security Council that Russia wouldn’t engage in retaliatory sanctions against the USA nor would it introduce a visa régime in re the Ukraine. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Kiev continues to make contradictory statements about relations with Russia, noting, “In particular, they made some statements that they’d stop or ‘suspend’ participation in the SNG, and that they’d introduce a visa régime with Russia. In this regard, if it happens, we’d report our options to you”. President Putin said, “With regard to both the American sanctions and the introduction of a visa régime by the Ukrainian government, for now, I think that we need to refrain from retaliatory measures. As far as introducing visas for the Ukraine, if we introduced them, millions of completely innocent Ukrainians would suffer. They’re already having a hard time, working in Russia, earning what little money they can to support their families. We shouldn’t do such a thing”.

Presidential Press Secretary Dmitri Peskov told Vedomosti, “There’s no longer such a thing as a gas discount for the Ukraine for stationing the Black Sea Fleet. It can no longer be applied either de jure or de facto”. If one returns to gas price formation under the 2009 agreement, the addendum to it on the fleet signed by Viktor Yanukovich won’t be valid. Yanukovich and then-President Dmitri Medvedev signed an agreement that extended the Black Sea Fleet’s presence in the Crimea in return for a 100 USD (3,625 Roubles. 112 CAD. 111 AUD. 73 Euros. 61 UK Pounds) per 1,000 cubic metres gas discount under the 2009 accord in Kharkov in 2010. With this discount applied, the Ukraine paid around 400 USD (14,500 Roubles. 448 CAD. 444 AUD. 292 Euros. 244 UK Pounds) per 1,000 cubic metres (35,300 cubic feet) of gas last year. After the Ukraine refused to sign an association agreement with the EU in December, Gazprom (MOEX: GAZP) reduced the gas price to 268.5 USD (9,740 Roubles. 300 CAD. 296 AUD. 195 Euros. 163 UK Pounds) per 1,000 cubic metres as of January. The Ukraine’s debt to Gazprom now tops 1.8 billion USD (65.25 billion Roubles. 2.01 billion CAD. 1.98 billion AUD. 1.3 billion Euros. 1.1 billion UK Pounds). Earlier, Gazprom CEO Aleksei Miller said that the company decided not to extend the discount starting in April because of the debt.

President Vladimir Putin signed laws on the accession of the RK and Sevastopol to Russia, forming two new federal subjects in the Russian Federation. The signing ceremony was in the Kremlin’s Yekaterininsky Zal, attended by Federation Council and RF Gosduma leaders. On 20 March, the Gosduma ratified a treaty between the RF and the RK on the Crimea’s rejoining Russia and the formation of new RF federal subjects. They also passed a relevant federal constitutional law. On Friday, the Federation Council approved the documents.

00 Kiev. riots 01. 23.01.14

______________________________

Chairman of the Government Dmitri Medvedev wrote on his Facebook page that radicals, militants, and bandits seized power in the Ukraine, an extremely dangerous move that could collapse the state. Medvedev noted that Crimea and Sevastopol made a choice, so, Moscow’s goal is friendly relations with the Ukraine and its other neighbours. An extralegal putsch took place in the Ukraine on 22 February; the Rump Rada ousted President Viktor Yanukovich, changed the Constitution, scheduled new elections for 25 May, and named Aleksandr Turchinov {an old-time pal and fellow thief of Timoshenko: editor} acting “President”. Yanukovich said that threats against his life forced him to leave the leave Ukraine, but that he remained the legally elected head of state. Moscow believes that Rada’s actions are questionable at best. Medvedev said, “The power belongs to various radicals, militants, and bandits. They make the final decisions. Most likely, they’d make them after 25 May, too. It makes no sense for them to share power with others. They’re masters in the streets and at the entrances to administrative buildings. This is an extremely dangerous situation. This type of rule inevitably leads to the collapse of the state”.

Editor:

Do note that the situation in the Ukraine gets MURKIER by the day. Two mobilisations occurred… no one showed up. The economy’s at a standstill… oldsters aren’t getting their pensions… the army lacks the money to move (and it lacks the will to fight)… Euromaidan commissars are now in the forces… unelected government “leaders” issue contradictory orders… and a “National Guard” of Maidan thugs replaced the steady and professional Berkutovtsy (who killed very few rioters, considering the provocations and violence offered against them).

Usually, by this time, putschists consolidate their power. Such isn’t so here. It’s a slo-mo replay of the August events. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT’S GOING ON. NO ONE. It’d be stupid for me to issue an opinion on the junta’s longevity. However, people are suffering and desperate for food… that isn’t a mark of stability, is it? May the junta’s days be short… to ease the suffering of the people. Why is the USA supporting such evil? Why are some people in the District in our Church supporting such evil? Ask them… I haven’t the foggiest…

On Friday, hours after Kiev signed the political part of its association agreement with Brussels, the EU announced a 1.4 billion USD (51 billion Roubles. 1.57 billion CAD. 1.54 billion AUD. 1.02 billion Euros. 850 million UK Pounds) increase in its aid package to the Ukraine. UNIAN quoted junta “Prime Minister” Arseny Yatsenyuk, “The EU decided to increase financial aid to the Ukraine from 610 million Euros (30.5 billion Roubles. 842 million USD. 944 million CAD. 926 million AUD. 510 million UK Pounds) to 1.61 billion Euros (80.6 billion Roubles. 2.22 billion USD. 2.49 billion CAD. 2.45 billion AUD. 1.35 billion UK Pounds). The EU will transfer over two billion US dollars to Ukrainian government accounts to stabilise the Ukrainian economic situation. The deadline for the transfer is late April or early May” {how much of it will stick to Yatesnyuk’s fingers? After all, he has a mansion next to Yanukovich’s to maintain, dontcha know: editor}. On Friday, Yatsenyuk travelled to Brussels to sign the political provisions of an EU association agreement, covering issues of “democracy”, judicial “reform”, and other civil society aspects. The full accord also includes an economic section, which envisages a free trade zone between the Ukraine and the EU {which would doom Ukrainian industry… there’s surplus capacity in Western Europe; the EU wants to flood the Ukraine with its goods, no matter what the suffering to Ukrainians: editor}. Yatsenyuk said that the junta would sign the economic part of the agreement, rejected by the previous government for fears of significant economic losses, only after the presidential election due on 25 May.

Editor:

This “aid”, which is really a loan, isn’t what it seems to be. Most of it’s going to Western creditors… the rest is only enough to run the country for less than a month. Besides which, it won’t come in for another month… and the junta needs money NOW. Remember, the Ukrainian economy lies knackered and idle… and shall continue to be so if the Ukraine actually goes through with the harebrained scheme of “European integration”. The Ukraine would lose Russian business, whilst gaining no new business from the EU (the EU, especially Germany, sees the Ukraine as a dumping ground for surplus goods and a cheap labour source, not a real trading partner). That is, the only way that the junta can survive is as a mendicant… and EU/IMF/ECB conditions would doom the junta. Don’t be smug… it means SUFFERING for Ukrainians in the near term. That’s why all who support the American/EU policy are disgusting and vile (especially, the clerics… they’re the worst). Our people will starve so that McMansion pukes can party hearty and play tennis at the country club. Now, that’s EVIL…

What will the EU and the USA do if the Ukrainian state collapses and Russia refuses to honour its debts? Now, that’s interesting, no?
