A Public Appeal from Novorossiyan Organisations to Bundeskanzlerin Merkel, Président Hollande, and President Putin
Esteemed Frau Merkel, M Hollande, and Vladimir Vladimirovich!
We, the undersigned residents of Donbass, write to you as the guarantors of the Minsk Agreement. We declare on behalf of our multiethnic population that your intent to unite us with the Ukraine will lead to an inevitable genocide of the peoples of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. Today, an oligarchic clique rules in Kiev, it came to power illegally through bloodshed on the Maidan, and wish to shed not only our blood, but the blood of all Ukrainians who don’t agree with their terrorist policy. They subject all who call for peace and justice to harassment and persecution. Today, they imprison hundreds of thousands of people… in Kiev, Odessa, Kharkov, Zaporozhe, and Dnepropetrovsk… they dared to speak in favour of independence of the regions, they fought against poverty, they opposed your reckless submission to the dictates of the USA, and they resisted the insane glorification of Hitler’s henchmen. Today, a group of murderers has seized all power in the Ukraine… they scruple at nothing. They ruthlessly destroy all those who dare to criticise the existing régime.
In recent months, the unbridled political terror drove opposition politicians to suicide, such as Party of Regions members Mikhail Chechetov, Stanislav Melnik, and Sergei Valter, KPU member Aleksei Kolesnik, former deputy chief of Ukrainian Railways Nikolai Sergienko, businessman Vadim Vishnevsky, and Head of the State Property Fund Valentina Semenyuk-Samsonenko. They physically destroyed, killed, journalists Oles Buzina and Sergei Sukhobok and Rada Deputies Oleg Kalashnikov and Aleksandr Peklushenko. They’re killing people systematically, in broad daylight, with complete impunity. The Ukraine, in fact, unleashed mass terror not only against Ukrainian dissidents, but also against defenders of the rights of Russians, Jews, Magyars, Bulgarians, Tatars, and Gagauz. The Kiev clique considers all the inhabitants of the southeastern Ukraine, from Bessarabia to Kharkov, unreliable and virtually calls us second-class citizens.
Landlords Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk appointed foreigners from the Western Ukraine as leaders, men who hate the people of the southeast. These “leaders” have clear goals to suppress and destroy the opposition; they diligently go about that task. Anyone who dares to issue a dissenting opinion, they immediately denounce as separatists and supporters of terrorists. Poroshenko calls us, the people of the Donbass, terrorists. What would happen if you put the Donbass under Poroshenko’s and Yatsenyuk’s authority, as you agreed in Minsk? They’d just destroy us all, just as they kill their opposition politicians and journalists.
No, ladies and gentlemen… thank you very much, but to such a Ukraine, we won’t return. The leaders of our Republics will support us. We demand that you tell Poroshenko to end his political terrorism. If this is possible only by removing him from power, tell him to leave. Tell Kiev that they must enact real and not fictitious constitutional reforms, ones that guarantee the rights of national minorities and regions. Give us our right to self-defence and civilian self-defence. Get rid of all the nutters in the Ukrainian government, those eager to do violence, those who wish revenge, and who want to make a career out of bloodshed. Make the Ukraine a normal country, with normal leaders ready for honest dialogue with us. Then, we’d have a chance to solve those difficult problems of which you spoke in Minsk. For such a course of events, we’re ready.

Let’s keep this short. I’ve had personal experience with “Ukrainian Orthodox” and “Ukrainian Catholics”… most of their people are innocent… however, there are many nationalist nutters amongst them, especially, amongst the Uniates. Keep in mind their two slogans:
- “The Ukraine for Ukrainians Only!”
- “Knife the Moskals (Russians)!”
I needn’t go on and on. The Ukrainian nationalists, both Uniates and schismatical Orthodox, have gone beyond Christianity to a Neopaganism dressed up in pseudo-Christian vesture. Note well who supports them in the USA… those who call themselves “anti-communists!” Therefore, if you call yourself an “anti-communist”, you spit on the suffering people of Novorossiya, and I will oppose you always and everywhere, wherever you pop up. The Church and the Communist Party are allies today, and if you deny that, you deny Christ and the power of the New Martyrs’ podvig… the Communists came to repentance over thirty years ago… yet, we still have people who nurture their hate. These people are NOT Orthodox Christians in their heart-of-hearts, for if they were truly Orthodox, they’d rejoice in the Communists “coming home”… therefore, all those who call themselves “Orthodox”, but who refuse to stand with our Communist brethren (many of whom are Orthodox Christians!) are my enemies and I shall give them no quarter.
The Communists and Church stand together in Novorossiya. The Left and the Church should stand together here. If you want the Red Banner, you must accept Christ the First Communist! If you want Christ, you must have the thirst for social justice that the Reds had (and have)! The Cross and the Red Banner… the Almighty Dollar and the Black Flag of Nihilism… that be the choice. You have no other in the real world. If you refuse the Red Banner… willy-nilly, you serve the Black Flag and what it represents. There are no neutrals in this war, after all.
I stand with Novorossiya… I stand with Communism… I stand with Christ… I’m NOT alone. Ponder that, righties…
