The Situation in the Ukraine “Develops”…

00 Simferopol. Crimea. 22.03.14

______________________________

On Wednesday, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Šimonović confirmed discrimination of Russian-speakers in the Ukraine, but he told the UN Security Council that the instances were sporadic. Earlier, Russia criticised Šimonović for ignoring murders, mass executions, tortures, abductions, and assaults on journalists and rights activists, politically motivated incarcerations, and appalling racist, anti-Russian, and anti-Semitic incidents in the Ukraine, committed with tacit approval from the ruling junta. Speaking at the UN session on Ukraine yesterday, the Croat human rights commissioner confirmed that the Russian minority in the Ukraine often falls victim to discrimination and even attacks, but noted it looked like these rights violations had neither a widespread occurrence or “systematic character” {much like Croat attacks on and discrimination against Serbs… take that with a block of salt, kids: editor}. He added that we must thoroughly investigate all violations of this nature, especially when they target minorities. Šimonović has toured the Ukraine since 7 March. He visited Kiev, Kharkov, Lvov, and intended to travel further south to the Republic of the Crimea, but he said that the Ukrainian authorities barred him from doing so {note how he kissed the junta’s ass: that invalidates his testimony, doesn’t it?: editor}.

Editor:

Šimonović is a Croat… ergo, he’ll minimise any outrages against Russians, as he hates Orthodox. Never forget the Serbian Holocaust… and its Croat perpetrators. The present Croatian state refuses to condemn Ustaša crimes (most notably, its massacre of Orthodox Christians… they did likewise, fancy that)… act accordingly.

The Associated Press no longer marks news items coming from the Crimea as Ukrainian. In a blog statement, the American news major explained that the Ukrainian junta lost control over the peninsula, emphasising that it based its marking practise on the actual state of things. Where it once used the dateline “SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine (AP)”, they’ll now use “SEVASTOPOL, Crimea (AP)”. The reason is that the Crimea is geographically distinct from Russia; they have no land border. The AP Stylebook announced, “For instance, we just say ‘Sicily’ and ‘Sardinia’ in datelines (‘Palermo, Sicily’), even though they’re part of Italy, and ‘Guadeloupe’ in datelines even though that island is part of France”. The change will effectively recognise the Crimea as an independent state following a referendum on Sunday where the vast majority of Crimeans voted to become independent and rejoin Russia.

Chairman of the Gosduma Sergei Naryshkin told reporters that statements by Kiev that it might introduce a visa régime for Russians shows that the Ukraine cares little for people, saying, “It’s a political statement, where the Ukraine demonstrates, once again, that its self-appointed leadership isn’t concerned about people. Thousands upon thousands of family ties unite Russia and the Ukraine. If they introduce a visa régime, it’d cause big problems for our citizens. Clearly, the Ukraine’s leadership is concerned about other things, not about people”.

On Thursday, a spokesman told ITAR-TASS that the FSB busted a channel of arms smuggling from the EU to Russia via the Ukraine, saying, “In an operation to expose and bust channels of illegal circulation of firearms and their parts, the FSB exposed arms smuggling from EU states to Russia via the Ukraine by vehicles, rail, and postal operators”.

The Russian Geographical Society (RGS) plans to coöperate with cartographers and the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre, and Cartography to draw new maps of Russia including the Republic of Crimea and the Federal City of Sevastopol as two new subjects of the Russian Federation. In the near future, the society will consider sending a scientific research expedition to the Crimea to study the republic’s rich natural, cultural, and historical heritage. The RGS plans to open a regional headquarters in the Crimea this year.

On Thursday, at Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu’s request, President Vladimir Putin signed a decree recognising the military ranks and education of Ukrainian officers who wish to serve in the Russian forces. Shoigu said during a meeting with President Putin, “This means that we recognise the military ranks and education of officers now in the Ukrainian forces, but who’ve asked to serve in not just the Russian armed forces, but in the internal forces as well, such as the MVD and FSB”.

Editor:

Note the methodical way in how VVP is moving… one step at a time, with all the bases covered. Oh, yes… the MID DID say that Russia could intervene if the Russian population requested it… and this announcement means that army and police officers and troops could continue in Russian service after the reintegration. VVP isn’t the leading statesman of our time for nought.

On Thursday, Deputy Defence Minister Yuri Borisov told reporters that the Russian Armed Forces would revise their development plans in the context of the entry of the Crimea and Sevastopol into Russia, saying, “Certainly, we need to develop military infrastructure on the peninsula to make the Crimea a worthy part of the Russian Federation and to protect it from possible intrusions. This isn’t only the Minoborony’s responsibility. On one hand, it’s is a huge victory, but on the other hand, it’s is a huge commitment to the people of the Crimea. We have to give a good account of ourselves in the international community so that it doesn’t doubt our aspirations and our capacities. Let them not have such doubts. We’ve done a lot to develop the Black Sea Fleet, including support for its shipyards in the Crimea. Now, we’ll have to look at their future again. We’ll not only support them, we’ll consider increasing our orders”.

Ukrainian border guards detained four Russian journalists after they allegedly failed to “prove the purpose of their visit”. The border control authority said that they seized the Russians seized overnight in the Donetsk airport, claiming that three reporters hadn’t presented them with sufficient evidence of their aims and residence plans, later confirming that they were NTV employees. Border guards apprehended another Russian citizen after he said that he worked for a French-German TV channel; allegedly, he didn’t have enough financial coverage for his trip.

Some 40 Czech families in Volyn Oblast asked the Czech Republic’s Interior Ministry to allow their return to their home country. Interior Ministry spokesman Vladimir Řepka confirmed that Ministry received the request. One of those behind this move is Antonin Holc, 76; he now lives near the Czech city of Olomouc, but he’s a spokesman for Volyn Czechs in Czechia. He wrote, “If it all depended on me, I’d take back every single Czech from Volyn in the Ukraine, for it’s certainly better for them to live in their home country. Recently, the crime rate went up in the Ukraine, so any person who has property can come under attack”.

Czech MP Radim Fiala said in a statement that the Czech government shouldn’t ignore the danger that ethnic Czechs face in Volyn, noting, “Crime and banditry is on the rise in the Western Ukraine, and local radical groups who imbibed the legacy of Stepan Bandera are to blame. We can’t ignore the apprehensions of our compatriots, as they have experience of clashing with nationalists during the Second World War”. When a group of Czech MPs met the leader of Volyn Czechs making their home in Zhitomir Oblast, Emma Snidevicova, she also asked Czechia to allow Ukraine-based Czechs to move back home. She handed the MPs a petition from Volyn Czech families who sought to return to Czechia. At present, up to 20,000 ethnic Czechs make their home in Volyn.

Editor:

Volyn was the site of massive UPA massacres of non-Ukrainians in 1943-44. Poles were the main victims, but the Uniate terrorists were equal opportunity haters… they also killed Russians, Byelorussians, Roma, Armenians, and others (they’d already helped the Nazis exterminate the Jews). They even killed Galicians who were Orthodox… nice guys, wot? Such facts make the fears of non-Ukrainians in Volynia quite reasonable. They did it before… they could do it again. The LOW figure for the Volyn murders by the UPA is 30,000… reflect on the fact that the USA supports those who imbibed the UPA’s hateful ideology. THAT chills my blood…

On Thursday, Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the State Soviet of the Republic of the Crimea (GS RK) said that the RK would officially adopt the Russian Rouble as its currency on Monday 24 March, saying, “The rouble is already here. We’ll carry out all transactions in Roubles beginning on Monday [24 March]. We’ll disburse all payments, pensions, and salaries in Roubles”.

******

On Thursday, the MID said that Moscow would reply proportionately and effectively to Kiev’s attempts to seize Russian property in the Ukraine and abroad, saying, “The Minister of Justice of the Ukraine threatened to compensate the Ukraine for the damage from some nationalisation of Ukrainian property in the Crimea by taking property of the Russian Federation, including the property of Gazprom. We’d regard any encroachments by the Ukrainian authorities upon Russian property, including abroad, as a gross violation of international law and the principle of state sovereignty. Naturally, we reserve the right to take adequate and proportionate countermeasures. Threats against particular Russian commercial enterprises, specifically Gazprom are especially surprising. According to the Ukrainian Constitution, private ownership is inviolable, and forced alienation of private property is only possible after advance and full reimbursement of its value. In addition, the effective Russian-Ukrainian Agreement on the Encouragement and Mutual Protection of Investments of 1998 would fully cover the property of commercial business entities, like Gazprom”.

Editor:

Do note, “We reserve the right to take adequate and proportionate countermeasures”. That means that Russia will protect the pipeline route. Due to the protracted nature of the crisis, no doubt, it now has an adequate supply of spares to repair damage to the pipeline by Galician Uniate Svoboda nutters. Watch for Svoboda creeps to try to do gnarly things on the pipeline… that’d trigger a Russian response… and the EU would do NOTHING… to ensure the gas supply for themselves. This is developing… and the picture emerging isn’t pretty. The junta is so strapped for cash that it’s trying to mess with Russian property. That WILL be its downfall…

The Bear IS back… and he doesn’t take kindly to goading…

Ukrainian Neofascists Preparing Terrorist Cells… Junta Continues to Rattle Its Rusty Sabre… Russia to Build Bridge Across the Kerch Straits

00 Svoboda nazis. 22.03.14

______________________________

On Tuesday, Aleksandr Danilyuk, the coördinator of the extremist Ukrainian movement Spilna Sprava (Common Cause) announced that it’d dismantle its tent city on the Maidan in Kiev; it’s going to start training guerrillas to fight Russian forces, saying, “In case of a war with the Russian Federation, the regular army isn’t efficient enough, which the Ukrainian armed forces command also admitted. The organisation should concentrate on preparations for and coördination of actions of special units capable of conducting warfare on enemy-occupied territory. Unfortunately, most of the Ukraine could potentially become such territory”. Spilna Sprava would keep only an information centre and a guerrilla mobilisation point at the Maidan. Spilna Sprava said also that it’d continue occupying the Central Elections Commission building to watch the presidential elections scheduled for 25 May.

Editor:

Turchinov, the junta chieftain, declared mobilisation TWICE. In both cases, very few, if any, reservists reported for duty, and the junta lacked the police power to enforce its ukase. Do note well that this received no media attention in the West… nor has it slackened Western efforts to prop up their “sick man” client puppet junta (indeed, it may have intensified them). This means that the junta has no real military or police power to back its “authority”. Ergo, it’s preparing terrorist cells to strike at Russia and Russians after a foreseen (and foreordained) defeat. That is, the USA is helping to organise a new OUN and UPA… and we know what those terrorist bands did. The USA doesn’t have a “Global War Against Terror”… it has a “Global War Against Working People”, and this proves it. It means that Langley is preparing a Ukrainian al-Qaeda (Ulster’s sad history during the Troubles proved that one doesn’t need a large group to disrupt a society… all that kerfuffle was due to 500 hardcore IRA Provos backed by about ten times that number of supporters… Langley will find that number of traitors and murderers, to be sure)… does this mean that Orthodox people should leave the CIA’s service? I’d say yes…

On Tuesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) expressed concern over a clear attention deficit in the USA and the EU to ultranationalist elements in the executive bodies of the present Ukrainian junta. The MID said, “Members of the all-Ukrainian Union Svoboda hold some key positions in Kiev, including Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister. This blatant short-sightedness is difficult to explain; apparently, it’s connected with continuing keenness for geopolitical schemes with an anti-Russian tilt”.

******

Chernomorneftegaz (Black Sea Oil and Gas), nationalised by the Republic of the Crimea (RK), fully meets the Peninsula’s requirements for natural gas, RK Chairman of Government Sergei Aksyonov told a talk show broadcast live on Pervy Kanal (Channel One). In response to a question about the RK’s dependence on natural gas supplies from the Ukraine, Aksyonov said, “Annually, Chernomorneftegaz produces over 1.5 billion cubic metres of gas, with Crimea’s requirement amounting to about one billion cubic metres. There aren’t any doubts that we can prouduce gas on our own. As far as electricity is concerned, the people of Crimea paid for it in full, so, they have no debts to Ukrainian supplier companies. Accordingly, there aren’t any grounds for cutting off our electricity supply. We will regard all matters about a cutoff of power supply in such a case as sabotage”. He emphasised that the RK is creating backups, in particular, making 900 diesel generators available.

******

Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitri Peskov told the BBC that Ukrainian forces in the RK need to make a choice… they could join the Crimean forces, which would become part of the Russian army, or “be free to leave the peninsula”. He said that Russia wasn’t going to start military operations in the Eastern Ukraine. Peskov said that Russia wasn’t eyeing military operations in the Eastern Ukraine, but that Russia would do everything possible, using the entire range of legal instruments consistent with international laws, to protect and stretch out a helping hand to the Russians who live there. As for the death of a Ukrainian serviceman in Crimea on Tuesday, he said that RK forces faced provocations from those wishing to cause conflict. Reportedly, now, about 20,000 Ukrainian servicemen are in the Crimea.

******

On Tuesday, according to the MVD RK, sniper fire in Simferopol killed two people and wounded two others; specifically, an RK Opolchenie member and a Ukrainian serviceman died, whilst another Opolcheniets and another Ukrainian serviceman suffered wounds. An MVD RK media release pointed up, “According to preliminary reports, the shots were fired from one place in two directions. Someone fired from the window of a partly constructed building in the immediate vicinity of a military installation, at Opolchenie checking a report that armed people entered that building. The other shots were fired at a nearby Ukrainian military installation”. The MVD RK didn’t rule out that the incident was a preplanned provocation.

Late on Tuesday, at a concert on Moscow’s Red Square, President Vladimir Putin urged the people of the Crimea and Sevastopol to work jointly with Russia on pressing tasks, expressing confidence that they’d cope with them, as they were now reunited. He said, “We’ve done a lot together, but we have even more to do, we have a lot of tasks facing us, but I know, and I’m sure that we’d overcome will solve everything, as we’re together. Today is a joyful festive day; after a difficult and exhausting voyage, the Crimea and Sevastopol returned to their home port, to their native shores, to their port of registration… Russia. I thank those in the Crimea and Sevastopol for holding to a consistent and resolute position, for their clearly stated will to be together with Russia. We worried a lot about them; Russia answered them warmly, turned towards them, opening its heart and soul. The developments in the Ukraine seriously concern us, but I believe that the Ukraine will overcome all difficulties. We aren’t just neighbours, we’re closest family, and our future success depends on us… both on Russia and on the Ukraine”. Putin pointed up the courage of the people of Sevastopol and the Crimea, thanking them “for not betraying the memory of their ancestors, for maintain their love for our Russian motherland through the years, through decades”.

Vesti FM reported that Crimean cops nicked the sniper that killed two people and injured two more yesterday in Simferopol. The shooter was a 17-year-old from Lvov in the Western Ukraine, who was a member of the neofascist Right Sector.

Svoboda pigs assault the head of NTKU… THIS is what John McCain and Victoria Nuland slobber over (Quo vadis, Potapov?). THIS is why Orthodox people should resign Langley’s service…

______________________________

A group of far-right radicals claiming to act on behalf of a “Freedom of Speech and Information Committee” violently assaulted the chairman of the Ukrainian National Television Company (NTKU) in his own office, forcing him to sign a letter of resignation for alleged pro-Russian propaganda. They shouted at Aleksandr Panteleymonov, the KTKU chairman, punched him in the face, and threatened him with more violence to make him step down amidst allegations of airing anti-Ukrainian content. Footage posted on the web showed a group from the neofascist Svoboda party pushing Panteleymonov and yelling at him, “Write your resignation! Sit down! I told you; sit down! You’re feasting in my Ukraine! Here’s a paper, pen, write the resignation now quickly, you animal…You Moskal (pejorative for Russian) garbage!”

The video showed one of the attackers shouting in the chairman’s face. Panteleymonov replied by saying, “I’m Ukrainian”, to which they responded with more abuse, “You’re Ukrainian? You’re shit! You campaigned for Moscow; you lied to Ukrainians for our money!” Svoboda spokesman Aleksandr Aronets admitted on his Facebook page that they forced the NTKU chief to resign and attached a picture of it as a proof. He also accused Panteleymonov of brainwashing Ukrainians with a sitcom about the Russian Army. Svoboda is the country’s fifth-largest political bloc; they were part of the Euromaidan riots, together with the equally-neofascist Right Sector.

In a separate development, the Ukrainian junta ordered media outlets to block Russian TV channels under the guise of “ensuring national security and sovereignty”. The OSCE branded this mover “repressive”, OSCE media freedom official Dunja Mijatović said, “I repeat my call to the authorities not to start such repressive measures. Banning programming without a legal basis is a form of censorship; one shouldn’t use national security concerns to ban media freedom”. According to the media, half of all providers have already followed through. The National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council of Ukraine said on its website, “As of 11.00 GMT (03.00 PDT. 07.00 EDT. 15.00 MSK. 22.00 AEST), 11 March, 50 percent of providers across Ukraine disabled broadcasting of foreign channels” and the others are preparing to follow.

Editor:

This is the real face of the junta. It’s not long for this world. Do note that Darlin’ Yuliya, the landshark of Ukrainian politics, is mostly MIA… this can mean two things. Firstly, she thinks that she can pick up the pieces if the junta collapses, if the Russians don’t take over too much of the real estate (she wouldn’t want to be President of a Galician rump state, nor would they want her). Secondly, she’s set it up so that she won’t receive blame for the junta’s crashes and terrorism, so that she could live out the rest of her life in (very) comfortable exile, as a heroine, not as a despised failure.

Zbig’s gamble has failed… but the game must play out to the end, and many will suffer and die. Zbig doesn’t give a shit… reflect on that. Neither does Nuland or Herbst… it won’t disturb their sleep one little bit (one wonders if the Orthodox who support the American madness are equally unruffled… I fear that they are).

******

The neofascist Svoboda faction came under a barrage of criticism from Ukrainian journalists and politicians outraged by the thrashing that Svoboda toughs gave to Aleksandr Panteleymonov, the chief of Ukraine’s state-run NTKU television company. Panteleymonov had to resign due to threats of violence from Svoboda terrorists, prompting journalists to call for a ban on Svoboda. Ukrainian journalists described the attack on Panteleymonov’s office, in which Svoboda bravos punched and yelled at him, forcing him to write a resignation letter, as “thuggery”. NTKU employees told reporters that after beating Panteleymonov, the “deputies” dragged him outside and into a car, adding that no one has seen him since. According to the footage, one of the attackers was Ukrainian Rada People’s Deputy Igor Miroshnichenko, who repeatedly pushed and humiliated Panteleymonov. Miroshnichenko denied beating Panteleymonov, saying that he only wanted to tell the man his opinion of him {but he did NOTHING to stop the beating, did he?: editor}. Reportedly, junta “Prime Minister” Arseny Yatsenyuk criticised the Svoboda hitmen {but he didn’t open a criminal case against them: editor}.

******

On Wednesday, in a comment posted on its official website, the MID said that Western actions during the Ukrainian crisis run counter to the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, saying, “The USA and EU actively encouraged the coup d’état in Kiev, acting against the political independence and sovereignty of the Ukraine in breach of their obligations under the Budapest Memorandum”. In the context of the situation in the Ukraine, some of Moscow’s partners didn’t fail to point out to Russia its obligations under the 1994 Budapest Memorandum. In response, the MID said, “In view of this, we’d like to remind them what these obligations are and who exactly is responsible for honouring them. In the Budapest Memorandum, Russia, the USA, and the UK committed to act as guarantors of the rights inherent to the Ukraine’s sovereignty. We’d like to ask, ‘How do the threats to impose sanctions on the Ukrainian authorities made repeatedly by the USA and EU during the riots in Kiev fit into these guarantees? What is it, if not economic coercion with respect to a sovereign state? For example, how should one regard the almost continual visitation by Western envoys on the Maidan?’ How should we qualify American and EU statements that they no longer regard the legally elected head of state as a legitimate partner, unlike the new leaders, appointed by Maidan activists in breach of all constitutional procedures?”

******

President Vladimir Putin said a proposed bridge over the Kerch Strait should carry motor vehicles and trains, telling government officials, “We need a bridge that can carry both motor vehicles and trains”.

Editor:

This is a massive civil engineering project, but one well within Russian capabilities. After all, we’re talking about the nation that built the Trans-Sib and BAM main lines, the St Petersburg Dam, the Kronshtadt forts, and the Dnepr dam complexes, often under hostile environmental conditions. Note well that “Ukrainians” are unable to equal such… I rest my case. The Ukraine deserves to be back under Great Russia… to restore it to its proper glory. It’s time to rescue Little Russia from Galician “nationalism” and perfidy.

Russian Federal Migration Service chief Konstantin Romodanovsky said that the Russian Federation started to issue Russian passports in the Crimea, saying, “Work has begun. We’ve issued some passports today. We signed the international treaty yesterday. Its temporary application started yesterday, and, of course, all Crimean residents who apply to the Federal Migration Service will get passports, because, from yesterday, they’re Russian citizens. Certain exceptions exist, but it’s too early to talk about them. I think that the pace of issuing documents will grow each day as citizens apply”.

On Wednesday, Romodanovsky said that one can see symptoms of an intensifying humanitarian disaster more and more plainly in the Ukraine, so, the RF Federal Migration Service sent a petition to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees that mentions a sharp increase in the numbers of the Ukrainian citizens arriving in Russia. Romodanovsky said, “Humanitarian disasters have definite symptoms and they’re getting more and more obvious in this case, as the inflow of senior citizens and children grew twofold. We shared this information with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and our apprehensions are understandable. We’ve begun collaboration with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees; we hope that our joint efforts will help minimise the impact of the situation”.

******

Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council Secretary Andrei Paruby said that he ordered the Ukrainian MID to introduce visa regulations with Russia, following a council meeting. He also said that he gave instructions to the SBU, MVDU, and the Minoborony Ukrainy to carry out orders to put the forces on full combat readiness. At a briefing on Wednesday, Reuters and Interfax reported that he said, “We ordered the Minister of Foreign Affairs to introduce visa regulations with Russia. The [Ukrainian] MID should work out rules allowing entrance to the Ukraine to Russian citizens only if they have international passports. We gave the order to put this decision into effect as quickly as possible. We gave instructions to ensure the categorical fulfilment of earlier decisions of the SBU on the partial mobilisation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and putting them on full combat readiness. It was necessary to deploy tactical groups of the Ukraine’s Armed Forces in its border regions, for protecting its borders and territorial integrity. We’re developing a plan that’d enable us not only to withdraw servicemen, but also members of their families in the Crimea, so that they could be quickly and efficiently moved to the Ukraine”.

Editor:

This is proof that the mobilisations failed and that no one showed up. No one trusts or respects the junta. The main mistake of the USA was relying upon the Timoshenko clique, the only possible faction MORE hated than Yanukovich was. This was sheer stupidity of the highest order… do reflect that all the Amerikantsy masterminds who came up with this flapdoodle had advanced degrees. Any baba could’ve told them that relying on the Timoshenko gang would lead to disaster, but they knew better! After all, Zbig said so! Will this debacle lead to his ouster as foreign policy guru? We’ll have to see…
