Patriots in Kharkov, Odessa, and Donetsk Oblasts Demand Autonomy in a Ukrainian Federation

00 kharkov patriot rally. 30.03.14

“No! To fascism! No! To the Junta! For the TS (Customs Union) and a Referendum!” Note well that you didn’t see this in the Western lap-dog media… Also, note that the statues of Comrade Lenin are a rallying-point for patriots throughout the Eastern and Southern Ukraine… fancy that. In the East and South, the Cross and the Red Banner march together… isn’t that a hint for us?

______________________________

On Sunday, demonstrators at a patriotic rally in central Kharkov called for establishing an autonomous republic within the Ukraine of the oblasts in the south and east. Similar actions in Donetsk, Odessa, and Lugansk occurred simultaneously with the rally in Kharkov. The protest leaders urged patriots in the southeast to unite against the Kiev junta. Yuri Apukhtin, a Civic Forum leader, told the crowd, “We’re the successors of the Soviet Republics of Donetsk-Krivoi Rog and Odessa. We aren’t the remnants of Banderovtsy. We’ve been and will be the pillar of our country”. He urged patriots in the southeast to unite, create a coördination committee, and fight the Kiev putschists in a Popular Front, saying, “We see our place in the Ukraine in a historically shaped southeastern autonomy”. He related that agreements exist with leaders of similar protests in Donetsk and Lugansk to coördinate joint efforts. The patriotic resistance demanded the release of well-known activist Ignat Kromskoi, who the junta put under house arrest “on charges of organising mass riots” for taking part in a 1 March action that whipped Euromaidan terrorists who came from Kiev and other non-local parts, which seized the Oblast Administration’s office. Participants in a similar rally in Lugansk demanded a Federal Ukraine and protested the junta’s suspending rebroadcast of Russian TV channels in Lugansk Oblast. Several demonstrators wiped their boots on a Ukrainian national flag.

Editor:

Do notice that nearly all patriots are Orthodox in faith and respectful of the Soviet legacy… at the same time, and without contradiction! As for myself, I’ve come to see that Vladimir Ilyich Lenin was a better choice than the bourgeois plotters of the February Revolution. They were much like the Kiev putschists… without a programme, only intent on enriching themselves. Ilyich wasn’t corrupt… he was an honest man, without many personal vices. Yes, he was nasty to his enemies, but then again, the Whites acted likewise, in similar measure. Ilyich did bring in the NEP, after all… he WAS flexible. The Civil War ended in 1920, Ilyich suffered his strokes in 1922… that is, he was head of the USSR for less than two years in peace. We don’t know what might have occurred had he lived to his full “three-score-and-ten” (1940). His flexibility in the NEP hints of great leadership, as his opponent Churchill admitted:

He alone could have found the way back to the causeway… the Russian people were left floundering in the bog. Their worst misfortune was his birth… their next worst his death.

Even his enemies admitted his ability… mistrust all those who paint him as a soulless devil… indeed, Pyotr Veliki wasn’t much different. Indeed, there are glimmers of Ilyich in VVP. Last of all, do note how patriots in the southern and eastern Ukraine defend his monuments. Reflect on the fact that most of them were at liturgy that morning, and many communed (and their priests were in the crowd with them!).

There’s a three-fold “glory” to bear in mind:

Glory to Grand Prince St Vladimir! He brought us the ideals of the Orthodox faith!

Glory to Vladimir Lenin! He brought us the ideals of universal social justice!

Glory to Holy Rus and to ALL of its history! ALL of it or NONE of it!

If you hear someone dissing ANY of the legacy of Holy Rus, be it Kievan Rus, the successor principalities, the Tsardom of Russia, the Empire, or the USSR, you’re listening to a traitor, a sell-out to the Individualistic West (often, they suck up to Langley for filthy lucre). The universalism of both social justice and Orthodox faith are, in the end, quite compatible… in fact, I’d say that when you combine them, you multiply their strength exponentially. Remember, we of Holy Rus are confident and stirring MAXIMALISTS… we aren’t wimpy and smarmy compromising temporisers, as the Westerns are. That’s why we’re not as nasty and violent as they are… grounded people who know who they are respect all other decent people. Reflect on that…

31 March 2014. Do You Want Little Russian Culture to Flourish? Then, Stand for Holy Rus and Great Russia!

A 52-minute concert by the Kuban Cossack Choir (KKKh)… note the costumes and the songs. If you want to preserve the legacy of Little Russia, one has to support Holy Rus and Great Russia. To support the Galician pipe-dream is to deny your birthright and sell out to foreign and alien ideologies.

______________________________

One reason why Russia does a better job at preserving “Ukrainian” culture than the Ukraine does is simple. In Russia, the arts receive much more support than they do in the Ukraine… the Ukrainian oligarchs and foreign Western corporate buccaneers stripped away most of the flesh from the Ukraine, leaving little but picked-clean bones. In fact, Russia gives proportionately greater support to the arts than America does… it doesn’t have the selfish crapitalist “Individualistic” mindset of Americans. Here’s the sad part… many of the artists in ensembles in regions near the Ukraine come from the Ukraine, but they can’t make a living in the Ukraine… you see, Yuliya, Turchinov, and Yatsenyuk stole away the people’s sustenance (note well that the USA APPLAUDS that)… which leads to Ukrainian intelligentsia and artists leaving the country. They find a welcoming and congenial home in the Russian Federation. It’s time for the rest of Little Russia and Novorossiya to come home. If Galician Uniates wish to rot in Western slavery, let them… but I’ll confide that many Galicians want to be part of Holy Rus, too… that means that Galicia may throw off the chains of the Unia and cultural slavery to the West. I hope that happens…

Crowds Demand all-Ukraine Referendum on Federation

00 Ukraine crisis. Donetsk Kharkov 06. 17.03.14

______________________________

On Saturday night, local media said that a rally demanding a referendum on making the Ukraine a federation brought together more than 2,000 people in the eastern city of Lugansk. The marchers in downtown Lugansk chanted “Russia”, “Say No to Fascism”, “NATO Go Away”, “Yanukovich Is Our President”, and “Referendum”. The protesters demanded that the junta respect the results of a “Popular Referendum of the Lugansk Area”, held from 16-23 March, involving 173,000 residents. A statement issued by the steering committee of the referendum said that they offered five questions to respondents. Question One asked if they trusted Aleksandr Turchinov, the chieftain of the junta, and the officials he appointed; 96.19 percent said “No”. Question Two asked, “Do you support the slashing of social benefits and abolition of discounts due to IMF demands?” 95.77 percent said “No”. Question Three asked if they supported the status of Lugansk Oblast as a constituent territory of a federation within the Ukraine; 95.54 percent said “Yes”. Question Four asked whether they supported an amnesty for the leaders of the popular resistance in the Lugansk area; 95.66 percent said “Yes”. Question Five asked if the Ukraine should join the Customs Union of the Eurasian Economic Community (TS EvrAsES); 96.1 percent said “Yes”.

Also on Saturday, a rally demanding a referendum on making the Ukraine into a federation brought together more than 3,000 people on Lenin Square in Donetsk, the capital of neighbouring Donetsk Oblast. Participants in the rally declared their intention to use legal methods for pressing the junta to hold a referendum to resolve the future of the heavily industrialised Donbass. They waved Russian flags, as well as the standards of the Eastern Front and the Donetsk Republic movements. Many wore St George ribbons… symbols of Russian military glory and victory… on the lapels of their coats. One heard chants of “Down with Fascism”, “Free Gubaryov” (Pavel Gubaryov, the “People’s Governor” of Donetsk Oblast, now in junta imprisonment), and “Donbass for Referendum”. During the meeting, activists of the Russian Bloc held an opinion poll related to proposals to turn Ukraine into a federation, on the status of the Russian language, on whether the Ukraine should join the TS EvrAsES, and whether the Ukraine should collaborate with NATO.

On Sunday, 30 March, Lenin Square in Donetsk shall become the site of a many-thousands-strong meeting where the residents will demand a referendum on the status of the Donbass. On Friday, Viktor Yanukovich, the legitimate President of the Ukraine, compelled to leave the country in the wake of the American-fomented coup in Kiev, spoke out in favour of turning Ukraine into a federation. He proposed to hold an all-Ukraine referendum on this question instead of the early presidential election scheduled by the junta for 25 May, saying, “As a President who stands side-by-side with you, you’re deep in my heart and in my thoughts, I call on every soberly thinking Ukrainian citizen to resist the efforts of usurpers to misuse them. Demand a referendum on determining the status of each particular oblast within the Ukraine”.

Editor:

There’s a short opportunity to hold an all-Ukraine referendum on making the country a federation. It’s more important than the so-called “presidential election” is… the West wants to install one of the oligarchs as “President”… if that happens, the Ukraine as a nation-state will unravel, probably, in the messiest way possible. Then, all bets WOULD be off… the suffering that’d ensue would make the misery observable today look very comfortable indeed. Reflect on the fact that Americans (especially, Republicans) salivate over this and don’t give a good god-damn how many innocents suffer… after all, there’s money to be made, and only “successful” people count, dontcha know. It’s the vilest thing that I’ve seen in my days.

By the way, don’t count out Viktor Fyodorovich… he’s still very popular in the east and south. Here’s a point to ponder… he’s less corrupt than any of the junta members are (especially, Timoshenko, Turchinov, and Yatsenyuk, the Unholy Trinity of the American Junta), and he defeated Darlin’ Yuliya in a head-to-head election. He’s a good Orthodox Christian… that’s one of the reasons that the Western media slanders him. He’s the LEAST BAD alternative… chew on that for a while… and reflect on WHY the USA wanted him out so badly. The love of money IS the root of all evil… and the trail DOES lead to K Street (and to evil and ravening poseurs such as Zbigniew Brzeziński, Grover Norquist, Rod Dreher, Rush Limbaugh, Jim DeMint, Pat Robertson, and Terry Mattingly… The tree IS known by its fruit).

“The Denisenko Schism will have No Place in the Crimea”

00 Crimea rally. Moscow 02. 19.03.14

______________________________

We all saw that the future of the Crimea was in the hands of the Crimeans. They freely expressed their will; they chose to reunite with Russia. We should all welcome this. Denisenko’s church scam has no future. It existed only as it had major Ukrainian government support; it didn’t stand upon righteous principles, it had no spiritual foundation or monastic tradition. As a rule, all serious Ukrainian believers expressed abhorrence about Filaret and his schism. Now, since Crimea regained its freedom, it means that Orthodox people will also receive spiritual freedom and be allowed under the Russian authorities’ protection to exercise true freedom of religion, just as they’re now free to use their native Russian language and to be Russian, in the fullest sense of the term. The Denisenko schism will have no place in the Crimea; it’s lifeless, violent, and wretched. How we’d resolve this, God alone knows, but we do know that Crimea will be Russian again very soon… that’s a fact. We shouldn’t prejudge the Holy Synod’s decision, but undoubtedly, they’d have a care for the increase of the flock in the Crimea. Indeed, I think that they’d welcome it.
