Malaysian Jetliner was in Restricted Airspace

0 777 crash site in Donetsk NR 01. 18.07.14

______________________________

Brussels-based Eurocontrol announced that the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 airliner that crashed Thursday near Donetsk was flying in closed airspace, an area off-limits due to the junta’s repression operation in the area. A statement by the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation said, “According to our information, the aircraft was flying at Flight Level 330 (@ 10,000 metres/33,000 feet) when it disappeared from radar. The Ukrainian authorities (sic) closed this area from ground to flight level 320, but it was open at the level at which the aircraft was flying. Since the crash, the Ukrainian authorities (sic) informed Eurocontrol of the closure of routes from the ground to unlimited in the Eastern Ukraine (sic) (Dnepropetrovsk Flight Information Region). Now, Eurocontrol rejects all flight plans filed using these routes. We’re activating the European Aviation Crisis Coordination Cell to coördinate the response to the impact of the airspace closure”.

On Friday, Daniel McAdams, the director of Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity told RIA-Novosti, “It is hard to get through all the propaganda on the plane so I can’t say about who’s responsible. Who benefits? Kiev. There’s no possible benefit for Moscow”.

On Friday, former US Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Paul Craig Roberts told RIA-Novosti, “The sanctions announced by the Obama régime against Russian defence and energy companies demonstrate Washington’s impotence for they’ll cause damage to US banks, they’re now prohibited from doing business with Russian companies. Russian companies can borrow, if they need loans, from European banks or from China, and have no need for US bank loans. It’s in Russia’s strategic interests to have no business relationships with the USA. Sanctions are encouraging countries to withdraw from the dollar payments system that’s the foundation of American power. Even Washington’s NATO puppet states are becoming unwilling to hurt their own economies to help boost Washington’s power over Russia”.

On Wednesday, US President Barack Obama announced new sanctions against Russia targeting Russian companies and institutions in defence, energy, and banking economy. Commenting on President Obama’s move, President V V Putin said that the new sanctions would push US-Russia relations to a dead-end, and warned of the sanctions’ boomerang effect. Mr Roberts drew parallels between Washington’s sanctions against Russia and Iran, saying, “US sanctions against Russia have already cost US businesses billions of dollars. The sanctions harmed global shipping insurers in London, Japanese shipping companies, and prevented South Korea’s access to Iranian liquefied petroleum gas. Many countries have already learnt from Washington’s sanctions that there’s no reason for them to compromise their sovereignty by using the dollar payments system and, thereby, placing themselves ‘under Washington’s thumb’. Sanctions demonstrate that Washington doesn’t approach the world with diplomacy, but with bribes, threats, and coercion. Russia and China use diplomacy, thus, Russia and China are prevailing”.

On Friday, the Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) said that Russian airlines suspended transit flights over Ukraine after a Malaysia Airlines passenger plane crashed in Novorossiya, stating, “Flight plans will avoid the Ukraine, transiting over the Russian Federation, continuing on through the airspace of other neighbouring countries providing safe passage over their territory”. Currently, Russian airlines are discussing cancelling scheduled flights to the Ukraine. Russia’s largest airline, Aeroflot, cancelled two scheduled flights on Thursday to Odessa and Kiev, and another scheduled flight to Kiev on Friday. Rosaviatsiya said, “According to information from Russian airline companies, the renewal of transit flights over Ukrainian territory may occur only after we receive full and guaranteed safety for flights over Ukrainian airspace”.

On Friday, A Yu Borodai, Chairman of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) Government, told RIA-Novosti by telephone that the DNR is discussing with a ceasefire with the junta to help investigate the Malaysia Airlines airliner crash. He said that a meeting would occur Friday afternoon, with the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) taking part, noting, “We’re doing everything to provide international experts access to the [crash] zone. Naturally, we’ve already suspended [battle operations] in that zone. At present, we’re holding consultations on this topic with a contact group out of Kiev. Consultations are being held with the OSCE’s participation and they’ll continue today”.

******

On Friday, opolchenie sources, quoting I I Strelkov, told RIA-Novosti said that they’d continue operations in all sectors except for the Malaysian airliner crash site, saying, “We’ve surrounded a large enemy group in the southern DNR. It’d be unreasonable to stop military action against the surrounded group. Experts working at the accident site would be safe. The Boeing crash site is deep within our controlled territory, so, no ‘humanitarian truce’ or ‘corridor’ is required to investigate the causes of the tragedy… the commission can freely go there and look at the crash site. No one will interfere with it”. In other news, the opolchenie took Marinovka and surrounded an 800-man spetsnaz group. Initially, there were 5,000 troops in the group, but the majority managed to escape, killed in action, or taken captive.

******

On Friday, a Minoborony source said that it intercepted Ukrainian radar activity on the day the Malaysian plane went down in Novorossiya, saying, “Throughout the day on 17 July, Russian radar surveillance intercepted the operation of the Buk-M1 battery’s Kupol radar station located near Styla [30 kilometres (19 miles) south of Donetsk]. The technical capabilities of the Buk-M1 allow the exchange of data on air targets between batteries of one battalion. Thus, they could’ve launched SAMs from any of the batteries deployed near Avdeyevka [8 kilometres north of Donetsk] or from Gruzsko-Zoryanskoe [25 kilometres east of Donetsk]”.

******

On Friday, a source in the European Commission told RIA-Novosti that the EC doesn’t know why the USA concluded that a SAM shot down the Malaysian Airlines airliner that crashed in Novorossiya. Our source said, “One must ask them. The European Commission doesn’t have the data on where the USA got the information publicised in the media”. Citing US intelligence agencies, the Wall Street Journal reported earlier on Friday that a SAM brought down Flight MH17. It said that intelligence agencies said that witnesses reported a plume of smoke rising over the crash site. They didn’t comment on whether the junta or opolchenie launched the SAM, but they did say that it was a SAM.

******

On Friday, Brian Flynn, the head of Performance, Forecasting, and Relations in the Eurocontrol’s Network Manager Directorate (NMD), said, “Given that at least 30-40 air carriers regularly fly aircraft in Ukrainian airspace, the temporary suspension of air traffic would affect 350 flights daily, or 1 percent of all European civil aviation traffic. The move would also intensify air traffic in neighbouring Poland, Bulgaria, and Turkey, but it’s unlikely to seriously affect passengers because it’d cause minimal flight delays, if any”. The decision to suspend civil aviation traffic above Novorossiya came soon after the tragic crash of a Malaysian plane with 298 people on board on Thursday, which left no survivors. Already, a few major airlines in Russia and other countries decided to make amendments to their routes or even suspend them.

******

On Friday, Foreign Minister S V Lavrov said in an interview with Rossiya-24 TV that the claims of the Kiev junta that the Malaysian airliner crash in Novorossiya was a terrorist attack are unacceptable and constitute an attempt to manipulate investigators’ opinion, saying, “Naturally, attempts to claim that it was a terrorist attack, as it’d influence Ukrainian investigators as they did their work, is an inadmissible pressure on the commission’s activities. The UN Security Council should speak in favour of immediately beginning an independent, unbiased, free, and transparent investigation. We back a similar decision within the OSCE [Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe]“.

Euromaidantsy Terrorists Meet on Maidan… “Government” Does NOTHING… Lavrov Slams American Support of Junta (Without Mentioning the USA… But Everyone Knows What He Meant)

00 Kiev. Euromaidan trash. 23.05.14

______________________________

On Sunday, Ukrainian 5th channel reported that a “popular veche” on the Maidan in the centre of Kiev started with a minute of silence in memory of junta soldiers killed in the repression operation in the former eastern Ukraine. Several thousand people attended the “veche”, to discuss proposals to dissolve the Rada, the laws on local self-government, the repression operation in the former eastern Ukraine, and the ethnic cleansing of the residents of the Donbass. After the gathering, the Euromaidantsy mob plans to pressure the president and the Rada, and to harangue the people of Novorossiya.

Editor:

I read this in several sources, in Russian. Yes, the Euromaidantsy terrorists are serious in their delusions. They’re an extralegal mob and the “government” won’t disperse them. They’re proof that the present junta is a farce and that the so-called “election” on 25 May was a mockery. P A Poroshenko stole the election, and Uniate thugs saw to it that P N Simonenko and O A Tsaryov dropped out (besides which, the Genprokuratura opened a bogus criminal case against Tsaryov). The first order of business of any real government is to clear out this nest of vipers, with violence, if necessary (they refuse to go in peace, so, we need to wield the sword to clear out these scoundrels). Note well that the Uniate hierarchy blesses these shits. Need I say anything more?

On Sunday, the Slavyansk opolchenie HQ told Interfax, “The enemy shelled Semyonovka and Cherevkovka, and the centre of Slavyansk last night, killing two civilians. A shell hit a house in Semyonovka, sparking off a fire. In addition to this, we had a reserve water line running from the town to Slavyansk, but the ‘National Guard’ (sic) shut it down. We take water from wells now”.

******

On Sunday, according to Interfax, Valery Bolotov, the head of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LNR), said during a news conference, “The enemy killed about 100 people in total, both civilians and opolchenie. After the enemy took control of Schastye, they just started shooting at civilians, mostly at men”.

******

On Sunday, Foreign Minister S V Lavrov said, “The Ukrainian authorities act with impunity on various issues because they’re shielded by our Western partners, or by some of them, at least. Their irreconcilable position in talks on natural gas trade with Russia is one way this impunity manifests itself. We hope that a third power doesn’t back this arrogant and uncompromising position, although we have some reasons to think so. It’s a source of worry for us that this impunity manifests itself increasingly often, as we saw in the repeated arrests of Russian journalists and the disgusting attack on the Russian Embassy on Saturday. Another example is their dogmatic statement of intent to sign a free trade and association agreement with the EU no later than 27 June, despite promises about the need for Russia, the Ukraine and the EU to get together and see what we can do to prevent the Ukraine’s relations with the EU from contradicting its rights and duties as part of the free trade zone of the SNG“.

Editor:

Is this a warning to the USA? Probably. We can help by not supporting American policy that harms our coreligionists. We should also expose those quislings who suck up to the powers-that-be, such as Potapov and Paffhausen. They ram a bayonet full-force into the backs of the Russian Orthodox people of Novorossiya with their dog-like support of the American Establishment and with their obsequious collaborationism with Langley (Potapov works for Radio Liberty… a Langley subversive media outlet designed to undermine the Rodina). None dare call such E-V-I-L…

The Old Master Speaks… Lavrov Sez West is Moving Away from Russia Because of its Return to Orthodoxy

00 Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi. 06.12

_____________________________

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a meeting with members of the Russian Council on International Affairs in Moscow that Russia’s returning to traditional spiritual values, and this is one reason the West distances itself from it. He said, “To our surprise, some even advanced the thesis that the USSR’s communist doctrine, at least, remained within the Western worldview, but the new Russia, in its return to its traditional values rooted in Orthodoxy, is rather less comprehensible to them. Along with this, there’s an increasingly pronounced contradiction between the objective growth of global multipolarity and the desire of the USA and the West to maintain their accustomed dominant position, between the cultural and civilisational diversity of the modern world and the attempts of the West to impose its values upon all. The more detached [the West becomes] from their own Christian roots, the less receptive they are to the religious feelings of people of other faiths”.

Junta Forces Use Explosive Bullets… Poroshenko Thugs Seize Political Opponent’s Factory… VVP and Old Master Tell USA and EU to Cool Down their Junta Puppets

00 slavyansk 01.30.05.14

______________________________

On Thursday, TASS reported that Aleksandr Borodai, the Chairman of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) Government, told reporters that junta forces use weapons banned under international law, saying, “They use explosive bullets and the other side uses all forms of banned ammunition. The junta uses mercenaries, and they employ all possible dirty methods. However, we plan to recapture the airport, and if they don’t leave the DNR by a specific time, we’ll counterattack. We know that carrying new enemy units almost every day. The enemy’s concentrating large forces and although we know how many of them are in the area, I wouldn’t like to disclose the figures at a news conference. Commanders on both sides remain on friendly terms. They served in the army and went to school together, some are still friends, so, quite naturally, they don’t want to shoot at each other, and talks are under way. At least 60 self-defence fighters and 20 civilians died in combat operations. There are snipers in the airport area, so, they kill civilians every day, and no-one can provide exact death toll figures as they strictly forbidden access to the airport. We’re unable to carry all the bodies out of there and to say exactly how many people they killed. We’ve imposed martial law but not a curfew”.

Editor:

Between the mercs and the Right Sector, the junta’s alienating people right and left. Essentially, mercs are semi-legal criminals; they lack all scruples and discipline. After all, they’re not “governmental forces”, they’re “private enterprise contractors” not bound by any treaty. Ain’t untrammelled crapitalism grand? Bear in mind that P A Poroshenko made his pile in the Nasty Nineties in the Mafia… especially, in gunrunning, drugs, and white slavery. In short, if a criminal heads the junta, don’t be surprised that its forces use criminal methods. Oh, yes… Nuland and Zbig smile their approval of it all. If shitbirds of a feather flock together…

On Thursday, presidential spokesman Dmitri Peskov told Russian media that Russia would provide aid to the DNR, saying, “Certainly, we’d give them humanitarian aid, but I can’t say anything about military aid. You should ask the military about that”. On Wednesday, DNR head Denis Pushilin sent Russia an official request asking that the Russian Federation accept the DNR as a federal subject, as well as provide comprehensive assistance to its people.

******

On Thursday, Sergey Kucherenko, Director of LLC Dnipro Paper Factory belonging to People’s Deputy Oleg Tsaryov, reported that 30 unknown people in khaki and masks broke into the premises and announced that the factory had a new owner. Kucherenko stated that the factory is down for repairs and maintenance at present. The trespassers stole the video surveillance box in the guards’ room; they ordered the Director and guards out of the factory. Kucherenko noted that the intruders informed him that the factory had a new owner now, and that they’d present all relevant documents on Friday at the police department. The police came to the scene and drew up a report.

Editor:

Just as he stole the election, Poroshenko’s wasting no time in stealing the property of his political opponents. An ignoranus Anglo American claimed that P A Poroshenko was a great champion of the rule of law. I’d say that the above incident gives the measure of that statement (and of the ignorant Anglos who make such).

On Friday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) stated that Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had a phone chat with US Secretary of State John Kerry, saying, “Lavrov urged the USA to encourage the Kiev authorities in Kiev to immediately stop military operations and begin direct negotiations with (representatives of) the southeastern regions”.

******

On Friday, according to Interfax, President V V Putin and French President François Hollande discussed the situation in the Ukraine in a telephone conversation initiated by France. The Kremlin press service said, “[Putin] pointed to the need for the Kiev authorities to immediately stop violence and bloodshed and start a direct dialogue with southeast representatives. The two presidents also discussed their upcoming bilateral meeting in Paris on 5 June. President Putin confirmed his readiness to take part in ceremonial events in Normandy on 6 June marking the 70th anniversary of the Allied landings”.

Editor:

VVP and the Old Master are sending out signals… “Stop your attack dogs or we WILL do something about it”. Trust me… they’re serious. Remember South Ossetia…
