Fighting Resumes in Slavyansk… Junta Terrorists want to Block Water Supply to Crimea… Junta Wants to Murder Patriot Leaders in the East

00 slavyansk 05. 06.05.14

Note the sign… “Slavyansk”… to use “Slovyansk” is to spit on the brave People’s Opolchenie. ‘Nuff said…

______________________________

In the early predawn hours on Wednesday, UNIAN reported that junta forces attacked opolchenie positions In Slavyansk. People heard gunshots on the outskirts of the city, the civil defence alarms went off, notifying civilian residents of an attack.

On Tuesday, presidential candidate Pyotr Poroshenko said at a press-conference, “Today, at a closed session of the Rada, we received evidence that what transpired on 2 May in Odessa in the Dom Profsoyuzov was indeed a terrorist attack. They used poisonous chemicals”. An international team of experts will investigate the tragedy; most expect it to reach the conclusion that the fire didn’t kill the majority of people who died there.

Editor:

Two takeaways from this… one, Poroshenko is distancing himself from the American “script”. No doubt, he saw what happened in Donetsk to his pal Taruta. He’s trying to avoid the same. Two, methinks that Langley slammed it in the door. It tried to repeat its stunt in Syria with poison gas, only the Galician neo-Nazis are a bunch of backwoods Jethro Bodines who fucked it up royally. They boasted on YouTube of what they did. What a buncha maroons…

Opolchenie sources told Interfax, “Fighting is going on near the TV tower in Andreyevka and at strongpoints in Kombikormochny and around the gas station. We’re recapturing the positions”. For now, there’s no information on casualties. Earlier, the opolchenie reported, “Junta troops captured the TV tower. We had to retreat to the city limits. The enemy entered Slavyansk”.

Editor:

Sources such as CNN, Fox News, the New York Times, and The Economist refuse to report the truth. Why? If they did, the reporters would lose their jobs, that’s why. It’s quite that simple. If you don’t parrot the neoliberal line, the new Pravda cans you. That means that Western journalists (except for total sellouts like Christiane Amanpour) mostly don’t believe a word that they report… it’s like late Sov times… everyone parrots the “party line”, but no one believes it, and most mock it in private. The post-1991 “rich man’s heaven” is drawing to a close and everyone (especially, the rich) knows it. The sacking of Taruta’s offices was only a Prologue…

In the early predawn hours on Wednesday, Interfax said that Channel five TV claimed that junta irregulars recaptured the Mariupol Gorsoviet building. Fascist “volunteer” irregulars stormed the building. Dozens of tyres burned in the city centre, and sporadic shooting occurred in different neighbourhoods all night. As of Wednesday morning, the central part of the city reopened to traffic.

Editor:

Friends tell me that the junta irregulars are real filth. Most are Uniates; they’re readily identifiable by their Galician hillbilly accents. They shoot wildly, beat up Orthodox priests, and go on manhunts of communists and others that they consider disloyal. Victoria Nuland and John McCain clap their hands in glee over such lawlessness… I wonder about Victor Potapov. He should resign publicly, put his resignation on the main ROCOR website for all to see, and state exactly what the late great Joe Adamov did, “I lied to you; I’m sorry that I did that”. Potapov should add, “I did it for money and I did it because I wanted to be ‘important’ in rightwing circles in the USA”. Don’t hold your breath…

On Wednesday, LifeNews posted on its website, “A LifeNews crew came under mortar attack [near Slavyansk]. Reporter Aleksei Kazannikov and cameraman Aleksandr Matveyev came under fire during a live broadcast”. Interfax stated that Kazannikov reported several minutes prior to the attack that junta spetsnaz emplaced Grad systems near a strongpoint.

Roman Lyagin, the head of the central elections commission of the Donetsk People’s Republic, told Interfax, “We won’t hold a presidential election here, in Donetsk Oblast. Officially, Viktor Yanukovich remains incumbent president, and there can’t be an election of a new president until the incumbent president steps down. All Raion and local elections commissions are busy preparing for the all-republic referendum on 11 May on the independence of Donetsk Oblast”.

******

Vyacheslav Ponomaryov, People’s Mayor of Slavyansk, told Interfax by phone, “Pavel [Gubaryov] (People’s Governor of Donetsk Oblast) has indeed been released. We exchanged three SBU members for three of our people, including Pavel. Pavel’s now in an area controlled by the Donbass people’s Opolchenie”.

Editor:

Was this an exchange sanctioned by the junta or was it a local deal? In view of bellicose statements from junta bosses, it may be the latter, but one can’t be sure.

******

ITAR-TASS reported that the junta is trying cut off the supply of fresh water to Crimea by erecting a dike made of sandbags across the North Crimean Canal. Eyewitnesses spotted cranes and other construction machinery 40 kilometres (@25 miles) from the Russian border, near the Armyansk-Kherson motorway. Following Crimea’s reunification with Russia, the junta arbitrarily decreased the flow of fresh water to the North Crimean Canal to a third of the regular amount since 14 April, and closed the sluice-gates completely on 24 April.

00 The junta writes a letter to Putin. 29.04.14

“We’re going to capture or liquidate all anti-Maidan elements in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk”… in a pig’s arse, I say…

______________________________

On Wednesday, Turchinov’s chief flunky boasted that they’d “liquidate or capture” all anti-Maidan patriots in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk. Early on Wednesday, junta fanatics murdered four patriot-federalization activists in the Gorsoviet building in Mariupol, and captured 16 people more.

******

On Wednesday, Interfax reported that the junta puppet administration in Donetsk Oblast claimed that the situation in Slavyansk and Slavyansk Raion remains tense, “Donetsk People’s Republic members now occupy the first floor of the central division of Ukrtelekom and Ukrpochta. Offices on the second floor are working. The main office sends, receives, or delivers no packages. They also occupy floors with the offices of the Ukrainian Pension Fund, an employment centre, and tax inspection. The gas supply and gasification department is only taking emergency calls. People were hurt in the fighting near Andreyevka last night. Four populated areas were without electricity for a week now”.

******

A statement on Mariupol’s 0629 website said, “The Ukrainian flag hoisted around 08.30 local time (22.30 6 May. 01.30 EDT. 06.30 BST. 09.30 MSK. 15.30 AEST) on Wednesday near the Gorsoviet building in Mariupol was taken down about three hours later, with several hundred supporters of the Donetsk People’s Republic gathering outside the building. MVDU troops left the building to the applause of those present. Since the morning, they’d controlled the entire area in front of the mayor’s office, and they were removing the barricades. Now, they’re near the administration, and the people surround them”.

******

On Wednesday, Georgi Fyodorov, deputy head of the Russian Civic Chamber’s Committee for Coordination of Aid to Residents of the Ukraine said, “Very alarming reports are coming in from our friends in Odessa. They suggest that control over the city has practically shifted to (oligarch Igor) Kolomoisky because Igor Palitsya, the new Governor of the Odessa Oblast, is his henchman. Unfortunately, we have reports that they brought armed militants of the Right Sector, fighters of the Dnepr and Kiev-1 spetsnaz battalions, and FK Dnipro football hooligans into the city and the overall number of the pro-junta combatants exceeds 4,000 there now. The most dangerous thing is that local police handed them the lists of pro-federation movement activists. In addition, we have information that checkpoints block the whole city and practically paralysing all traffic. The reports coming from Odessa are a cry for salvation. People ask the Public Chamber and me personally to appeal to international organizations and to Kiev to stop the planned terror actions and to stop the city’s slide into genocide. We’re working on this very scrupulously now and watching the situation inside and outside of the city”.

Editor:

The junta’s word is worthless… now, the oligarchs saw what happened to Taruta’s office and they’re scared shitless. They will do ANYTHING to protect their money… which is more important than anything else to them. They WILL kill to protect it… so would their American sponsors, if it came to that… Willy Romney, sadly enough, would find enough dupes to fight for his money. The American equivalents of the Uniates are the so-called “Evangelicals” (and all of their scurvy brethren)… ignorant, uneducated, violent, coarse, and backward… motivated by a pseudo-religion spouting Exceptionalism and hatred. Ponder that, if you will…

A participant told RIA-Novosti over the phone that pro-junta “National Guard” irregular toughs suppressed demonstrators who were in support of patriots detained in an earlier junta operation. About 200 people took part in a meeting near the GU MVDU building in Mariupol, where the junta forces brought detained patriots after an action early this morning. The detainees’ families feared that the junta irregulars would sneak their relatives out of the city. The local health centre reported that several people suffered injuries, but there’s no information about arrests. Now, the streets are empty, only a few people are keeping an eye on the situation.

Clashes between patriots and junta irregulars took place in Mariupol over the last 24 hours. Earlier, a opolchenie source told RIA-Novosti that junta elements filled a building under patriot control with gas, so the occupants had to leave. Eyewitnesses said that afterwards about 50 men armed with avtomats started shooting, detaining 20 opolchenie, taking them to the GU MVDU building. At present, 16 people remain in detention {reports say that four of the 20 are dead… murdered by “National Guard” thugs: editor}.
