Ukrainian Situation in Stasis for Now… It’s 08.00 in Moscow… It’s 06.00 in Kiev… Another Crazy Day Dawns

00 Kiev riots 01. 22.02.14


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}.


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.
