1 March 2014. Here’s Some Truth on Extremists Amongst the Uniates and the UPA… It’s FUCKING SAD… These Zipperheads Tarred a Whole Group with Their Muck… There’s a Cold Place in Hell for Both

Uniate SS 1943

THIS is what most Uniates refuse to condemn… many Uniates collaborated with the Nazi monsters 

******

This rot has subtitles… it’s three minutes of absolute demonic rubbish…

******

This is in Russian, but the images are good… it’s on the UPA murderers…

______________________________

I don’t want anyone to believe that I think that all Uniates are ravening enablers of terrorism. However, even though such are a minority, the majority refuses to condemn their hate and refuses to disown them as extremist marginal fanatics. I know many wonderful Uniate people… but I’ve seen them stay silent in the face of nationalist propaganda; I’ve seen them allow extremists to spread their hate in their schools, parishes, and social organisations. The two above videos tell the truth about SOME Galician Uniates… why are the decent majority silent? WHY? I can’t understand such supine cowardice in the face of evil. Again, WHY? If you remain silent in the face of the documented terrorism of Svoboda, you smear yourself with their guilt. THIS is what the decent majority of Uniates refuse to condemn:

Today, we’re really ready for a revolution. Would the fighters of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army tolerate Tabachnik and Yanukovich today? The only effective methods of combat are assassination and terror! The right way to communicate with the enemies is to fire at them! Our message to them is the message of death by hanging. We’ll send all communists to the gallows-tree in our forest! The message is our cry for vengeance… take your weapon and chase all fear! It is not a good time to be afraid! We have been waiting for 20 years! The situation will get better only if each of us contributes to building up our national state. We must first knock down the old house, and then build the new one. We must rebuild our political regime and create a new sovereign state. Only then will we live in our own country… in a country that takes care of our needs. We want to be masters in our own house and decide for ourselves. We want to be sure that our children will go to Ukrainian schools. We want to be sure that no Chinese, Negro, Jew, or Muscovite will try to come and grab our land tomorrow! Our success depends on each of us. We shouldn’t waver, we must keep covered todays political regime. The ground will be burning under their feet, like our torches are burning today! We must have a firm hand! Glory to the Ukraine!

This is what the USA and EU support in the Ukraine. It’s too much of a muchness. WHY? Why tolerate this amongst you? Why does Shevchuk stay silent? Why are YOU silent?

Uniates in the USA and Canada must decide whether they’re going to condemn manifest evil… or whether they’re going to glorify the thugs who commit it… it’s up to you…

Editor’s Note:

In order to get the news out with the greatest dispatch, I had to choose which Russian source did it best in the fewest words. That’s so I could “get there fustest with the mostest”, as the old misattribution to Nathan Bedford Forrest had it (yes, I know who he was… but the quote was spot on, so, I used it). VOR made the cut… they had the best combination of brevity with accuracy combined with a proper anti-Western interventionist POV. Things are souring quickly… the Svoboda pigs are on the rampage, killing and terrorising innocents… and the West cackles in glee. Excuse me if I don’t believe a word from Western sources. Their smarmy and self-righteous twaddle makes me want to hurl.

On Saturday, Chairman of the Government Dmitri Medvedev had a telephone conversation with Ukrainian “Prime Minister” Arseny Yatsenyuk, noting Russia’s interest to preserve stable and friendly relations with the Ukraine. The Russian government press service stated, “Meanwhile, [Medvedev] noted that Russia retains the right to protect legitimate interests of Russian citizens and servicemen stationed in the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea”. Medvedev observed that the Russian armed forces “have the power to act according to a mandate given to the Russian President by the RF Federation Council, if necessary”. The press service went on to say, “During the conversation, Medvedev also noted that Ukrainian officials are responsible if they take any unlawful decisionsto use force against Russian citizens”.

******

On Sunday, the Kremlin press service reported that President Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon stating that if any party takes violent actions against Russian-speakers in the Eastern Ukraine and the Crimea, Russia couldn’t stand aside and it’d take all necessary measures under international law. Both sides noted that all parties should try to avert further escalation of the crisis in the Ukraine.

******

VOR ran most of the below material from The Guardian. It’s proof for all concerned that the West is intent on forcing its puppet junta down the throats of all decent Ukrainians (do note that the junta’s MVDU head was in gaol in Italy, which is probably where Langley recruited him).

US President Obama warned Russia of political and economic isolation in a telephone conversation with the President Vladimir Putin that lasted almost 90 minutes. Obama said that the USA would urgently consult with allies and UN Security Council members, NATO, and the OSCE on the Ukrainian situation in Ukraine, warning Russia of political and economic isolation. In addition, Obama said that the USA would suspend upcoming participation in preparatory meetings for the G8 summit. President Obama expressed his deep concern over Russia’s clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity, which is a breach of international law, including Russia’s obligations under the UN Charter, and of its 1997 military basing agreement with the Ukraine, and which is inconsistent with the 1994 Budapest Memorandum and the Helsinki Final Act. The USA condemns Russia’s military intervention into Ukrainian territory {in like manner, Russian can condemn America’s intervention in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya (and American support for terrorists in Syria and the Caucasus)… the USA stepped full force into a cowpat on that one: editor}.

The USA urged Russia to de-escalate tensions by withdrawing its forces back to bases in Crimea and to refrain from any interference elsewhere in the Ukraine {to make things safe for Svoboda terrorists, who have loud supporters in the Galician diaspora: editor}. Obama said, “We’ve consistently said that we recognise Russia’s deep historic and cultural ties to Ukraine and the need to protect the rights of ethnic Russian and minority populations within the Ukraine. The Ukrainian government made clear its commitment to protect the rights of all Ukrainians and to abide by Ukraine’s international commitments {by allowing Galician terrorists to run amuck: editor}, and we’ll continue to urge them to do so”.

Obama told President Putin that, if Russia has concerns about the treatment of ethnic Russian and minority populations in Ukraine, the proper way to discuss them is peacefully through direct engagement with the Ukrainian government of and through the dispatch of international observers under the auspices of the United Nations Security Council or the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) {that means that Obama admits that American actions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria are illegitimate, and that the USA must stop all support for the junta, if it wants to be consistent: editor}. Obama urged an immediate effort to start a dialogue between the Russian and Ukrainian governments, with international facilitation, as proper. The USA is prepared to take part {so that its terrorist protégés don’t get hurt: editor}. Obama claimed that the people of the Ukraine have the right to decide their own future. Obama directed his Administration to continue working urgently with international partners to offer support for the Ukrainian government, including urgent technical and financial help {they’re trying desperately to spin the fact that Svoboda terrorists are killing and torturing the opponents of the junta: editor}.

Editor:

If “the people of the Ukraine have the right to decide their own future”, then, the USA has to disown the illegitimate Timoshenko junta, as it came to power in a coup engineered by the American/EU special services in defiance of the legitimately elected government. The Ukrainian people preferred Yanukovich to Timoshenko, who was FAR more corrupt than Yanukovich was (or is). Note well that the West supports the most feral, violent, racist, and corrupt politicians in the Ukraine. Barack Obama and the American Establishment don’t give a good goddamn for the Ukrainian people. I’d advise VVP to hang tough… the US forces are war-weary and knackered after a fruitless decade of wars of aggression in South Asia (which left the American national interest in the region in far worse shape that it was when the wars started). America can’t stop justice in the Ukraine. It’s reached its “Bridge Too Far”.

On his Instagram account, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov commented on Dmitri Yarosh’s appeal to Doku Umarov, an extremist Caucasian leader. Kadyrov pointed up that he wouldn’t overlook Yarosh’s words about his “fighting in the Chechen war”. Kadyrov said that this is good evidence of who the EU and the USA considers a legitimate political. Yarosh openly called for terrorism, yet, countries that are allegedly against terrorism support him. Kadyrov noted that the USA labelled Umarov as one of today’s leading terrorists, but Yarosh is a good guy according to the Americans. Kadyrov said that he personally talked with Crimean Tatars leaders; they told him that they don’t intend to fight Russia. However, fanatic Ukrainian nationalists tried to set them against Russia. Kadyrov said that Yarosh would follow Umarov to a place from where no one has returned yet.

On Saturday, Valentina Matviyenko, the Chairman of the Federation Council, told reporters that the situation in the Ukraine threatens the security of nuclear sites. She warned, “A large number of highly hazardous facilities, nuclear power plants, and other facilities are [in the Ukraine]. If such chaos continues, this will affect them. We should understood that we must ensure the security of highly hazardous facilities to avert a larger tragedy”.

******

Today, Catherine Ashton personally said that she intends to discuss the situation in the Ukraine with Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov next week. She said, “An urgent session of the EU Council for Foreign Affairs is due on Monday to discuss the EU’s response to the developments in the Ukraine. I’m also supposed to meet with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. I’m going to Kiev on Wednesday to solve these problems with all interested parties”. She postponed her trip to Kiev originally scheduled for 3 March due to an urgent meeting on the Ukraine with foreign ministers of 28 EU member-states.

******

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that the North Atlantic Council and the NATO-Ukraine Commission would have urgent meetings on the situation in the republic here on Sunday. The representatives of the 28 NATO countries would take part. Rasmussen said that the representatives want to confer about the serious Ukrainian situation in Ukraine and coördinate their actions closely. The members of the council will consult with the Ukrainian representative to NATO within the framework of the NATO-Ukraine Commission.

******

Ali Totorkulov, chairman of the Russian Congress of Peoples of the Caucasus, said that Dmitri Yarosh’s appeal to terrorist Doku Umarov to step up struggle against Russia shows the essence of the new Ukrainian junta. Totorkulov emphasised that the very fact of Yarosh’s appeal to Umarov, whose arms are elbow-deep in blood, proves, amongst other things, that those who ordered the escalation of chaos in the Ukraine and those who committed terrorist acts in the North Caucasus and many Russian cities are brothers under the skin. He said, “We’re gravely concerned about the developments in the neighbouring Ukraine, where extremist nationalists threaten to bring chaos and violence to the southern and western regions of our republic. They’re even urging separatist elements in Russia. Under the circumstances, inactivity on our part would be a crime. Today is a day when the future of both the Ukraine and Russia is in the balance. We support the idea of deploying Russian troops in the Crimea, to put an end to the chaos in that region. We also believe that Russia should give help to Ukrainian regions whose people reject nationalism, and who ask for our aid and protection”.

******

Sergei Bozhenov, Governor of Volgograd Oblast, believed that Dmitri Yarosh’s appeal to international terrorist Doku Umarov to join efforts makes Yarosh and Umarov equally terrorists, saying, “Not only Russia, but also the USA, considers Umarov to be an international criminal. Yarosh’s willingness to become Umarov’s ally puts him outside the law and requires using respective sanctions against him and those who share his views”. Bozhenov said that Umarov and his bandits brought a lot of grief to Volgograd Oblast. Umarov’s gunmen organised and carried out terakts in Volgograd Oblast. On 21 October, a female suicide bomber set off an explosion in a bus. On 29 December, terrorists set off a bomb at the city railway station, and on 30 December, a terrorist blew up a city trolley-bus. These terakts took the lives of 40 people, including women and children, injuring more than 100 innocent civilians.

A march of patriotic youth organisations in support of fellow our compatriots in the Ukraine will take place in Moscow today. The message of the organising committee said, “We need to consolidate our support for our fellow Russians. We’re distressed by the events in the Ukraine, where millions of our compatriots live. We’re fraternal peoples with common cultural and spiritual roots”. The organisers report that the march would be in Pushkin Square at 17.00 MSK (13.00 UTC. 08.00 EST. 05.00 PST. 00.00 Monday 3 March AEST). Activists of patriotic youth organisations, student construction brigades, academic associations, and the all-Russian public organisation Combat Fraternity will take part. At 14.00 MSK (10.00 UTC. 05.00 EST. 02.00 PST. 21.00 AEST) a motocross of Night Wolves MC members will start. The organisers report that applications to hold the events went to the Moscow Gorsoviet yesterday.

Western Neoliberals Unrepentant… Back Terrorist Junta in Kiev

00 Ukraine. SImferopol. 01.03.14

______________________________

On Saturday, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said that he summoned the Russian ambassador to register his concerns over the situation in the Ukraine and the Federal Assembly’s decision to authorise military action in the Ukraine. Hague said in a statement issued by the British Foreign Office, “This action is a potentially grave threat to the sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity of the Ukraine. We condemn any act of aggression against the Ukraine”. Hague will visit Kiev on Sunday for talks with the Timoshenko junta on the rapidly deteriorating situation in the Crimea.

Hague said, “I’m deeply concerned at the escalation of tensions in the Ukraine, and the decision of the Russian parliament to authorise military action on Ukrainian soil against the wishes of the Ukrainian government”. He said that he spoke to Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov “to urge steps to calm this dangerous situation”, whilst the British Foreign Office also summoned the Russian ambassador to London “to register our deep concerns”. In a telephone call with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Hague also agreed “on the need for international diplomatic action to address the crisis”.

EU foreign ministers will hold a new round of crisis talks on Ukraine in Brussels on Monday, when Hague said that he’d raise the issue of a further asset freeze. During his visit to Kiev, Hague said that he’d discuss how Britain could help the Ukrainian government recover “improperly acquired assets {does that include Yuliya’s ill-gotten gains? Or, does she get a ‘pass’ from Hague for kissing his ass in public?: editor}”. “The EU must agree urgently an asset freezing regime to target those suspected of laundering the proceeds of corruption”. Hague said, without naming names {that would include junta leaders Turchinov and Avakov, who ‘laundered’ Yuliya’s boodle! Hague shoots himself in the foot: editor}. “On my instructions, the British embassy in Kiev has told the Ukrainian government that we stand ready to give the Ukraine technical advice on asset recovery” {does that include recovering assets stolen by sitting junta members in the past? Avakov DOES have an Interpol notice out against him, after all. Perspirin’ minds wanna know…: editor}. Hague spoke to junta spokesman Aleksandr Turchinov on Friday, offering Britain’s support and urging him to take steps to unify the crisis-hit country {is the UK going to give more money and arms to the Svoboda pigs? Haven’t they done enough mayhem already?: editor}.

******

Air Force units in the Central and Western military commands and the Black Sea Fleet’s naval infantry are on heightened operational readiness. The Kaliningrad-based 7 Motorised Rifle Regiment also received such orders, but its troops and equipment haven’t moved out yet. Besides this, the 79 Guards Motorised Rifle Brigade is also on alert. Earlier reports said that divisions of the Central military command usually based in Samara advanced to the Ukrainian borders near the Kharkov region and the Crimea.

******

The UN hasn’t yet commented on the Russian Federation Council decision to use Russian forces in the Ukraine. A UN Security Council meeting is imminent, with a closed session of the UN Security Council scheduled to begin at 23.00 MSK (19.00 UTC.14.00 EST. 11.00 PST. 03.00 Sunday 2 March AEST). Earlier, Robert Serry, Counsellor to UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon, issued a statement from Kiev urging calm in the situation in the Crimea and for the parties to refrain from actions that could cause its further escalation. However, he said that his plan to visit the Crimea is impossible, so far {that means that patriotic forces sealed off the Perekop to prevent entry of Svoboda pigs and other such fascist trash: editor}.

******

UNN (Ukrainian National News) reported, referring to the chairman of the Civil Committee for National Salvation Paul Nussa, that Yuliya Timoshenko, former Ukrainian Prime Minister and effectual leader of the putschist junta in Kiev, is going to Moscow on 3 March for talks on the Crimean crisis. Nussa claimed that this was a personal decision made by Timoshenko {this “Nussa” jabronie is a complete unknown, I searched for “Nuss”, “Nus”, “Nusa”, “Nussa” in the Russian and English Wikipedias and came up with ZILCH. I tried a general Google on them and on “Civil Committee for National Salvation”… again, NADA. Your guess is as good as mine is: editor}.

******

According to Leonid Slutsky, the chairman of the RF Gosduma Eurasian Integration and Compatriots Committee, Russia isn’t breaking diplomatic relations with the USA, amidst reports that Russia might recall its ambassador in the USA for consultations. Recently, voices in the Federation Council put forth a proposal to pull the ambassador from the USA. Allegedly, the Federation Council tasked its Foreign Affairs Committee with drafting a speech for President Putin where he’d call for the ambassador’s return. Slutsky said in an interview with Rossiya-24, “As of yet, Putin hasn’t made a final decision on the ambassador’s recall. However, he’ll make it later, it’s all up to him… the situation now is that we shouldn’t talk about a diplomatic break-up or a pause in our relations. Putin might recall the ambassador temporarily for consultations. The format of this move would be decided on the President and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID), because it sets the course for our foreign policy”. Slutsky emphasised that it would be an “informed decision”, to show the USA that Russia regards the Ukrainian crisis as a “geopolitical struggle”. Slutsky accentuated, “We realise who’s pulling the strings, we’re clear on that, and that’s why we reacted the way that we did to the improper statement that the US President made about Russia ‘paying for its action in the Ukraine’”.

******

US Senator John McCain released a statement following the announcement that the Russian Federation Council approved President Vladimir Putin’s proposal to use Russian armed forces to maintain peace and stabilise the situation in the Crimea. McCain expressed his predictable take on the issue with his usual anti-Russian rhetoric saying, “I’m deeply concerned that Russia’s ongoing military intervention in the Crimea may soon expand to the eastern Ukraine. Yesterday, President Obama said that Russia would face ‘costs’ if it intervened militarily in the Ukraine. It’s now essential for the President to articulate exactly what those costs will be and to take steps urgently to impose them”. He unreasonably accused Russia of contradicting its own “commitments to respect the Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity”, picturing Vladimir Putin as an “ambitious and aggressive” leader willing to intervene in the Ukraine even though “there’s a range of serious options at our disposal at this time without the use of military force”. In conclusion, he characterised the protection of Russian citizens who are under siege in Ukraine as “aggression” and in bellicose language urged President Obama to “rally our European and NATO allies to make clear what costs Russia will face for its aggression and to impose those consequences without further delay”.

Editor:

John McCain was a paid lobbyist for the Georgian government who winked at the Georgian bombardment of civilian neighbourhoods with Grad rockets in 2008. In other words, his shield isn’t clean at all. Note also that most Republicans share his ignorance and hatred. Caveat lector…

A leader of the Ukrainian radical group Pravy Sektor (Right Sector), Dmitri Yarosh, posted a call on Right Sector’s page on the VKontakte social network for terrorist Doku Umarov to strike against Russia. Umarov is the most wanted criminal on Russia’s most wanted list.

******

UNN reported that former Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Ogrizko believes that the Ukraine should immediately withdraw from the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and restore its nuclear potential. Ogryiko said, “The first priority now is for an urgent emergency session of the Rada. When Ukraine gave away its nuclear arsenals it received guarantees of security in exchange, but now the countries that gave those guarantees have violated them. Now, the Ukraine should announce its withdrawal from the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and urgently restore its nuclear cycle and manufacture of all the required components so that we’d be able to defend ourselves from aggressors”. He’s convinced that this step is certain to change the situation in the Crimea. Ogrizko also added that it’s essential to be able to defend oneself, and not only rely on foreign partners’ assistance and support.

00 Yuliya Timoshenko. Playing Card. 23.02.14

______________________________

Konstantin Dolgov, MID Commissioner for Human Rights, said that Moscow expects a reaction from the West to the call of Dmitri Yarosh, a leader of the ultranationalist fascist organisation “Right Sector” and one of the Maidan ringleaders, for Chechen terrorist Doku Umarov to strike Russia. Dolgov posted on Twitter, “A Ukrainian Neo-fascist Yarosh called for Umarov’s help. Is the West relying on such ‘democrats?’ Will the local reaction follow?” Earlier, the MID repeatedly drew the attention of its Western partners to the extremist and ultranationalist slogans spouted by Maidan leaders and by those who came to power in the putsch.

******

Russia might consider Aleksandr Turchinov a military criminal if he uses military force against the South and Eastern Ukraine and the Crimea. Previously, the Rada changed the constitution, making Rada Chairman Aleksandr Turchinov “interim president” until a presidential election on 25 May. Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said that he remains the legitimate head of state, and what happened has all the hallmarks of a coup. Moscow believes that the legitimacy of Rada decisions is doubtful.

******

On Sunday, Marina Soroka, a spokesman for the Fatherland Front posted on its website a denial of reports that former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yuliya Timoshenko intends to visit the Russian capital of Moscow, saying, “This is untrue. Yuliya Timoshenko is holding consultations with leaders of opposition political forces, representatives of state authorities and governmental officials in the Rada, debating settlement of a severe political situation”. Earlier, UNN reported that Timoshenko was going to Moscow.

******

Ukrainian junta chieftain Aleksandr Turchinov placed the Ukrainian military on high alert in response to Russia’s possible military intervention in the Ukraine, saying, “All explanations about dangers to Russian citizens or Russian-speaking Ukrainians have been devised”. In another development in Kiev, Ukrainian “Prime Minister” Arseny Yatsenyuk said that he spoke with his Chairman of the RF Government Dmitri Medvedev, noting, “The government of the Ukraine will take every measure to ensure calm, order, and stability. We protect every citizen of Ukraine whether he speaks Ukrainian or Russian”, he said, adding that a Russian military invasion would be unacceptable. “An intervention will be the beginning of a war and the end of all ties”.

Editor:

The Ukraine has no money because the junta leaders and Yuliya looted what was there (take THAT, William Hague), and because the unrest they fomented upset normal revenue collection, ergo, that means that it has no real military power to speak of. I’d also see that units in the Ukraine have men from all over the country in them… that is, there are no purely Galician units to back up the putschists. The above are brave words uttered by a man who knows that he has nothing to back them with.

******

On Saturday, Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin told reporters that a meeting of the UN Security Council on the Ukrainian situation can’t begin due to attempts of several countries to change the format of the meeting at the last moment. A diplomat from a Western country told reporters that several members of the UN Security Council called for making the meeting open and webcasting it. However, the Council reached no consensus on that proposal. Churkin said, “We’re prepared to have serious debates, but several members of the UN Security Council decided to change the format of a meeting at the last moment. One shouldn’t do this. Instead of getting down to business, we had this strange discussion”. Ambassadors of the 15 member-countries of the UN Security Council gathered for a meeting involving UN First Under-Secretary-General Jan Eliasson. Ukrainian Permanent Representative Yuri Sergeyev came to the session hall after that.

******

President Yunus-bek Yevkurov of Ingushetia said that when Dmitri Yarosh, a leader of the so-called “Right Sector” in the Ukraine, appealed to North Caucasian bandit chieftain Doku Umarov, he confirmed that those on the Maidan in Kiev were just as much gangsters as are those found in the North Caucasus. He pointed up that such an appeal puts the Right Sector on a par with international terrorist organisations. He said that he was interested in the West’s response to this appeal because the West supports the putschists in the Ukraine. Yevkurov said that this appeal was no surprise for people in the North Caucasus and the Republic of Ingushetia. He said that his people would keep working as usual to solve economic and social problems, and carry out an active struggle against crime.

******

Putin said to US President Obama that if the violence in the Ukraine and Crimea spreads, the Russian Federation reserves the right to protect its interests and the interests of Russian-speaking citizens.

******

The Kremlin said that Putin raised concerns about “provocative criminal” actions by ultra-nationalists backed by the Ukrainian junta.

******

The Kremlin press office reported that President Vladimir Putin, in a conversation with French President Francois Hollande, spoke about the real threat to the lives of Russian citizens and their compatriots in Ukraine. The service said, “At the request of M Hollande, President Putin shared his assessments of the crisis in the Ukraine. He also emphasised the presence of the real threat to the life of Russian citizens and their compatriots”.

People protesting against the Timoshenko junta tore down the Ukrainian flag and replaced it with the Russian tricolour. At present, people holding Russian flags pack the square in front of the oblast administration building. Protesters elected Pavel Gubaryov, the commander of the Donbass Druzhinniki, as the new Governor of Donetsk Oblast. For his part, he called on people to set up a tent camp in the square in front of the oblast administration.

On Saturday, Interfax-Ukraine reported that thousands of Odessa residents gathered under Russian and Soviet flags at the Kulikovo Field. Organisers stated that some 20,000 people are there, the police said that they counted about 5,000 participants. The purpose of the meeting is to choose an empowered and authorised representative to speak with the authorities on behalf of Odessa residents.

On Saturday, Acting Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Andrei Deshchytsa stated the need for dialogue with Russia to resolve the current situation in the Crimea, telling reporters, “We really want to establish a dialogue with Russia, but now all we do is exchange memoranda, and God forbid it should turn into a memorandum of war. We want a dialogue with Russia; let’s stop sending papers to each other. I speak Russian, I can communicate”. He said that the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs planned to publish a statement that would disclaim information about certain seized buildings in the Crimea.

Families of Berkutovtsy living in a hostel in Krasnozvezdny Street in Kiev asked all concerned people to protect them from constant humiliation, bullying, and threats. Their cry for help is on social network sites, including Facebook. They wrote, “In recent months, we all lived in dread for ourselves, our husbands, and children. Constant threats, bullying, and fear turned our lives into a nightmare. Many had to quit work; our children faced persecution in schools, because our husbands ‘were killers on the Maidan’. Many people went to their parents and relatives, but we have no other place to go and no reason to leave. These last few days, it’s just impossible to live. Masked men with guns are constantly near the hostel, there are lots of them, and they’re very hostile. They make no secret of the fact that they came to seize Berkutovtsy. They insult everyone who comes out or enters the hostel. Yesterday, they beat up a 60-year-old father of one woman because he disparaged the Maidan. A child was out with their dog, and they broke the dog’s paw with a club before the child’s eyes. This is a nightmare. Only about 90 of us remain here, mostly women, children, and older people. There are several wounded boys, one was very severely beaten, he has fractures, but he’s afraid to go to hospital, because they can grab him directly in the hospital”.

They stated that there’s nobody whom they can ask for help, writing, “A few days ago, we called the police. Two sergeants arrived, along with three masked men who didn’t hesitate to threaten and insult us, even though there were cops and children present. We have no internet; someone slashed the wires. The lights go on and off regularly. We’re eating the last of our potatoes and pasta; we pooled it all together. Yesterday, they blocked all our husbands’ bank cards, allegedly, until clarification of the situation and re-evaluation; they remained unemployed because they’d done their duty, they’d stood there in the freezing cold, and they’d been burned, poisoned, and shot at. We’ve already cried our eyes out as they tortured and betrayed us. Today, we got a call from Lvov, they killed a Berkutovets in his house, because he was at the Maidan. We no longer know whom to trust, to whom to turn for help, and how to feed our children tomorrow. If someone could help with accommodation and shelter, maybe in a village, at least for a couple of months, we’d be very grateful. We’d also appreciate any help, if you can bring it here”.

The Kremlin press service reported that President Vladimir Putin asked the Federation Council for permission to use Russian forces in the Ukraine until the situation in the country stabilises, saying, “Due to the emergency situation in the Ukraine and the threat posed to the lives of Russian nationals, our compatriots, and the Russian military contingent stationed in the Ukraine (in the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea (ARK)) authorised under international agreements, I asked the Federation Council for permission to use Russian forces on the territory of the Ukraine until the social and political situation in the country stabilises”.

******

On Saturday, the Committee on International Relations of the Federation Council, the upper house of the RF Federal Assembly parliament, supported President Vladimir Putin’s appeal about using the Russian Armed Forces in the Ukraine pending normalisation of the situation there. The Federation Council Committee on Security also supported the president’s appeal. Both committees advised the upper house to uphold it, Security Committee Chairman Viktor Ozerov and International Relation Committee Chairman Vladimir Dzhabarov said. On Saturday, the Federation Council held an emergency session to discuss Putin’s letter.

******

The RF Federation Council unanimously approved President Vladimir Putin’s request to use Russian military forces in the Ukraine. Russia hopes that the move will settle the turmoil in the fragmented country. The upper house of the Federal Assembly voted in favour of sending troops to the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea, which would ensure peace and order in the region “until the socio-political situation in the country stabilises”. President Putin will make a final decision on the number of Russian forces needed in the Ukraine in accordance with the decision of the Federation Council.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) said that the Federation Council’s decision to grant the Putin the right to use Russian troops in the Crimea doesn’t mean that we’d do it in the immediate future. Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Grigori Karasin said, “The consent given to our president doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s going to exercise his power quickly”. President Putin appointed Karasin as his special envoy to the Federation Council when it considered the use of the Russian military in the Ukraine. Putin will make a final decision on the strength of Russian troops deployed to the Ukraine in accordance with the decision of the Federation Council. The decision is legal under the 2009 amendments to the law “On Defence”. Karasin noted that the number of troops that we’d send to the Ukraine isn’t under discussion yet, saying, “We need to properly interpret the president’s address, as well as the consent given by the Federation Council, which refers to possible use of the armed forces of the Russian Federation. They had no other choice but to give this consent, for we aren’t simply concerned about the situation in the Ukraine, it truly bothers Russian society and the situation is intensifying”.

On Saturday, the Federation Council unanimously adopted a resolution granting President Putin the right to use Russian armed forces in the Ukraine until the political situation there stabilises. The vote at an extraordinary meeting of the Federation Council was in public. All senators present spoke for approval of the Russian president’s initiative. Federation Council Chairman Valentina Matviyenko said that the present decree comes into force from the date of its adoption.

______________________________

On Saturday, Yuri Vorobyov, Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council, said that US President Barack Obama’s warning that Russia would have to pay for a planned military intervention in Crimea is “a direct threat”, saying that Obama “crossed a red line and insulted the Russian people. Yesterday, we heard from various media sources that US President Obama said that Russia would pay dearly for its policy. We know that Maidan militants who were active in Kiev, and not only there, received training in Lithuania and Poland. Now, they want to spread their influence with their activities to the Eastern Ukraine and the Crimea”. Vorobyov urged the Federation Council to satisfy a request from President Vladimir Putin permitting the use of Russian armed forces in the Crimea, saying, “If we don’t approve a decision to that effect, it’d be a tragedy for the Ukrainian people. I believe that these words from the US President are a direct threat, and he crossed a red line and insulted the Russian people”. He insisted that Russia recall its ambassador from Washington.

******

On Saturday, President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitri Peskov said that Putin hadn’t yet reacted to a proposal in the RF Federation Council that he recall the ambassador from Washington, saying, “There’s no decision about it yet”.

******

On Saturday, the media cited Dmitri Peskov as saying that President Vladimir Putin hasn’t yet decided whether to deploy Russian troops in the Ukraine. Peskov said, “After the decision by the Federation Council, the president received the full arsenal of means needed to resolve the situation, in terms of using (military) forces and in terms of taking decisions about (withdrawing) the head of our diplomatic mission in the USA. At the same time, it’s necessary to emphasise that the president hasn’t yet taken either decision. He hasn’t taken either decision yet”. Peskov also said that the Kremlin hopes that there’d be no further escalation of the crisis.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Grigori Karasin said that the Federal Assembly’s approval of the use of armed forces in the Ukraine doesn’t mean it’d happen immediately, saying, “Today’s consent … means only that the president has a free hand [to act] if the situation gets worse. I’m convinced that it [decision] will be understood correctly in the Ukraine, but I don’t rule out that the Western media would distort it, as always, as it barely understand the processes unfolding in the Ukraine, both now and in the past”.

******

On Saturday, a diplomatic source at the UN said that the UN Security Council would meet at 23.00 pm MSK (19.00 UTC. 14.00 EST. 11.00 PST. 03.00 Sunday 2 March AEST) to discuss the situation in the Ukraine, saying, “The Security Council will meet to discuss the situation in the Ukraine”. Earlier, another source reported that the meeting would take place at midnight, but the information proved inaccurate. The Security Council already met over the Ukraine on Friday, 28 February, where Ukrainian Permanent Representative Yuri Sergeyev urged its members to take the situation in the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea “most seriously”. The US and UK permanent representatives voiced concern about the movements of Russian troops in the Crimea. The Russian permanent representative replied by saying that Russia was acting in the Crimea in accordance with agreements with the Ukraine on the deployment of the Black Sea Fleet there.

Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland appealed to all parties to the Ukrainian conflict to refrain from actions that could further aggravate the situation. An informed diplomatic source said that EU ambassadors in Brussels are holding urgent consultations on the Ukrainian situation ahead of an urgent Foreign Affairs Council meeting on Monday, 3 March. He declined to speculate on the situation in the Crimea, saying that contradictory information came from that region. At its previous meeting on 20 February, the EU Foreign Affairs Council called on the parties to refrain from violence and made a political decision to impose sanctions against Ukrainian officials. The decision is still in effect. Meanwhile, NATO said that it was watching the latest developments in the Ukraine and the Crimea most closely.

******

On Saturday, the White House said in a statement that the USA is considering whether to lay the blame for what it deems a possible military invasion in the Ukraine at Russia’s door, a senior White House official said, “We’re monitoring the situation closely, consulting with our partners, and considering the potential costs the President spoke about yesterday”. This came after President Vladimir Putin called on the Federation Council to consider sending military forces into the Ukraine. The Council responded by giving Putin the green light to deploy troops in the Ukraine to stabilise the situation there. The vote on military deployment at the emergency meeting was open, with all present backing the move. Federation Council Chairman Valentina Matviyenko said that the decision entered into force immediately.

Editor’s Note:

There’s much more on this developing shit pit, but I want to get this out ASAP. The USA and the EU now face that they’ve brought a bunch of incompetent terrorists to the fore in Kiev. God willing, it won’t turn into war… please, God, no… the Amerikantsy are such arrogant, foolhardy, and grasping bastards, though…

We have elements in the Galician diaspora in the USA and Canada to thank for much of this… they’re poster children for what happens when hatred rots a person’s soul. I’ve seen them up close and personal… the hatred that I saw in some quarters was amazing and disturbing. They’re active as a political lobby… therefore, don’t be silent… SPEAK UP!
