Junta Extorts Ransom for Kidnapped Journalists… Desultory Fighting in Slavyansk… Poroshenko “Wins” Fixed Ukie Prez Banana Race… You Can Smell the Cooked Books from Here

ITAR-TASS reported that two Russian LifeNews journalists kidnapped by the junta in the Ukraine on 18 May are now free and landed in the Chechen capital of Grozny. Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov wrote on his page on Instagram, “Russian journalists Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saichenko are free! Their plane is heading from Kiev to Grozny!” On behalf of the people of Chechnya, Kadyrov thanked President Vladimir Putin for saving the journalists from junta captivity, “Marat and Oleg will have a rest in Grozny until morning. Their relatives, family, and colleagues will be able to meet them in Moscow tomorrow”.

A source at the Slavyansk opolchenie HQ told ITAR-TASS that a mortar strike killed an Italian journalist and his interpreter near Slavyansk in Novorossiya. The incident also wounded a French stringer. The journalists were in Andreyevka near Slavyansk. The French stringer, William Rongulson, went to hospital with a shell fragment wound in his leg. He left the hospital himself after doctors bandaged his wound. Any further details are so far unknown.

Editor:

Any place in the former Lugansk and Donetsk Oblasts is Novorossiya, NOT the Ukraine (the 11 May referendum settled that). If we support the patriot elements, NEVER EVER say that anywhere in those areas are “in the Ukraine” or “Ukrainian”… they’re “in Novorossiya” or “Novorossiyan”… otherwise, you kiss the naked ass of the Uniate fascists for all to see. “Donetsk Oblast” or “Lugansk Oblast” are taboo usages, too… it implies that the junta is the legitimate authority in these regions. As the putschist junta seized power in an extra-constitutional coup d’état, it’s illegal under all standing international law.

On Saturday, Rossiya-24 TV reported that the Ukraine now demands money for the release of detained Russian journalists. A court in Dnepropetrovsk ruled to release Stepan Chirich, a producer of NTV TV, as soon as the Russian side agreed to pay 150,000 gryvnias (430,000 Roubles. 12,560 USD. 13,650 CAD. 13,600 AUD. 9,220 Euros. 7,460 UK Pounds) for his release. The SBU rudely detained Chirich in Pervomaisk Raion of Dnepropetrovsk Oblast on 23 April. The journalist was shooting a TV spot with the help of video camera glasses. The junta thugs beat him up during his captivity. Chirich’s whereabouts were unknown for the next few days. Later, it turned out that the junta trumped-up criminal proceedings against him for allegedly using a “special device”. Video camera glasses are in worldwide use and are available at any shop selling digital gadgets. The glasses are very popular with users and fans of internet social networks.

Editor:

This court was in Dnepropetrovsk, the stomping grounds of one of the most dishonest, violent, and corrupt oligarchs, Oleg Kolomoisky… betcha most of this extortion (for that is what it is) went into his pocket. The USA and the Republican Party enthusiastically support such chicanery… reflect on that.

LifeNews reported that, hours after their release, LifeNews TV reporters Marat Saichenko and Oleg Sidyakin revealed the appalling conditions under which the junta held them for nearly a week after junta irregulars seized them. During their imprisonment, they said that they were journalists; they had all the necessary papers, but no one paid attention. Junta “troops” tied up Saichenko and Sidyakin, put them inside a helicopter, and took them to a junta base. The journalists said, “They kept us in a damp hole in the ground for two days, with hands tied, legs wrapped in scotch tape, and bags on our faces scotch-taped around our necks, making it hard to breathe”. After that, their captors put the reporters were into a metal box and drove them to an unknown place, it was a long trip. Finally, they found themselves in an SBU interrogation room. At that point, the SBU goons removed the bags from their heads. During the following five days, they were kept at “some building in Kiev” guarded by two Alfa VV MVDU spetsnaz. Whilst in captivity in Kiev, their junta captors subjected the journalists to much psychological pressure. Saichenko said that SBU interrogators pressurised them with threats to charge them with illegal arms trafficking and even claimed that they’d kill them.

On Sunday, LifeNews journalists, Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saichenko, captured by junta irregulars a week ago in Novorossiya and released on Saturday evening, stated that they spotted several mercenaries at Kramatorsk airfield. Sidyakin told a press conference, “There were lots of mercenaries at the airfield. There were people dressed in uniforms that weren’t typical Ukrainian issue. They talked to no one and walked into the headquarters in silence. We still can’t figure out who those people might be. We didn’t hear English spoken, but we saw people equipped like Western troops. Their behaviour, the way the held themselves, were odd, as was the fact that they didn’t speak to anyone”. Saichenko said, “After being with the Ukrainian army for a while, we understood how the soldiers felt, how higgledy-piggledy they were. Many conscript soldiers, including those who guarded us, complained that they were long past their demob, and they also complained that their food was nasty”.

Editor:

They saw the CIA and FBI operatives… oops !… they aren’t there, are they, Langley and the White House said so! Yes, the same folks who told you that Iraqi WMDs were real and who supported the SAVAK torturers… yes, indeed, BELIEVABLE people aren’t they?

Interfax reported that a junta “National Guard” (sic) terrorist died in action in Slavyansk in Novorossiya on Saturday evening, two more suffered wounds. A grenade splinter in the arm wounded one irregular; the other had a gunshot wound to the torso. At present, the wounded are in hospital receiving medical treatment.

******

On Sunday, ITAR-TASS reported that French Foreign Ministry spokesperson Romain Nadal stated that French journalist William Rongulson, who received fragmentation wounds in a mortar attack in Slavyansk in Novorossiya, will receive medical evacuation to his homeland within hours. M Nadal said that the wound wasn’t serious and that the French embassy in Kiev was dealing with the journalist’s repatriation. The Paris headquarters of Wostok Press photo agency told ITAR-TASS that Rongulson was now in the Ukraine, where he was getting medical assistance, saying, “He has fragmentation wounds in both legs. His condition is normal, but he’s slightly shocked over what had happened. The French embassy is helping to provide medical treatment”.

******

According to Interfax, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini discussed the tragic deaths of an Italian reporter and his Russian interpreter near Slavyansk. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated, “Lavrov and Mogherini discussed the tragic situation in [the former] southeastern Ukraine and the deaths of Italian reporter Andrea Rocchelli and his Russian interpreter Andrei Mironov, and exchanged condolences on this unfortunate incident. They also urged an immediate end to the violence in [the former] southeastern Ukraine and to the so-called ‘anti-terrorist operation’ unleashed by the Kiev régime”.

ITAR-TASS reported that Pyotr Poroshenko, one of the most corrupt oligarchs, is winning the Ukrainian presidential election with 55.9 percent of the vote, according to exit poll data. His closes rival, Yuliya Timoshenko, the leader of the Fatherland bloc, received over 12 percent of the vote.

Editor:

There’s nothing surprising in this. From the top, everybody knew that it was a fixed Hudson County-style election (did they import ward heelers from Hoboken to teach Poroshenko’s thugs how to cook the books, or, were they naturally talented? Perspirin’ minds wanna know). Voting was heaviest in the Lvovshchina (does that surprise you?), but turnout was officially about 50 percent, which means that it was actually lower. Reports had it that Poroshenko and Kolomoisky were paying voters 100 gryvnias (285 Roubles. 8.40 USD. 9.10 CAD. 9 AUD. 6.20 Euros. 5 UK Pounds) a pop for their votes. In short, it was an old-school old-timey Newark or South Texas “election”. “Vote early… vote often”… it seems that old cliché from Cook County saw successful transplantation in the Ukraine…

Betcha that “turnout” amongst the elderly was nearly 100 percent… I’m told that crooked poll workers gave ’em already-marked ballots (betcha there were “repeats”… and the babas and dedes were canny enough to ask for “seconds”).

25 May 2014. The Bart n’ Frankie Show… HO HUM

00 Bart and Frankie. 25.05.14

_____________________________

The above is a satirical image making the rounds amongst the cognoscenti in the Orthodox cyberworld. Bart isn’t the “head of the Orthodox world” nor is he the “Orthodox pope”. What he does or says binds no one but his bunch, full stop. Frankie Bag o’ Donuts was looking for a gorgeous photo-op to take people’s minds off perv priests and corrupt Vatican bankers. He got it… as for decent Russian Orthodox people, well, it’s less than a yawn. Don’t waste your time attacking this… the Phanar’s been doing this shit for the last 50 years. It doesn’t surprise me or surprise you. It’s time to get back to the real world and its real concerns…

25 May 2014. BREAKING NEWS. Active Resistance in Podkarpatskaya Rus?

00.01 Carpatho-Russia coat of arms

______________________________

Something’s going on in Podkarpatskaya Rus, reports are coming out of violent resistance to the fascist junta. Here are some facts… for the past 8 weeks, Ukrainian Nationalist goons savaged Rusins, Russians, Jews, and Rom. They knifed at least one Roma boy in his 20s and beat up a 68-year-old Orthodox matushka. Today, at 16.00 local time (04.00 PDT. 07.00 EDT. 14.00 BST. 17.00 MSK. 23.00 AEST), a bunch of Rusin patriot young men seized Right Sector equipment and fought back, shooting at the Uniate fascist thugs. They flew Soviet and Russian flags. There’s little much else as many Rusin patriot websites are down and the junta’s tried to clamp an “iron curtain” on information. Of course, the Western bitch media is silent. Did you expect otherwise, compadre?

25 May 2014. A Point to Ponder… Who Do YOU Stand With? Gene Debs or Yatsenyuk the Scientologist?

00 lament of the plutocats. 19.05.14

______________________________

Recently, the phoney “Prime Minister” Yatsenyuk claimed that the radical slashes to pensions and untoward price hikes were “necessary reforms”. Do note well that he exempted himself and all of his rich pals from ANY of the sacrifices. They’re special… dontcha know. Gene Debs summed it up over a century ago… his words ring true today, not just in the “Ukraine”, but in the USA, too. You can stand for the patriots in Novorossiya and Podkarpatskaya Rus, and stand for godly righteousness, or you can stand with the thieves’ junta in Kiev and stand with satanic pride and greed. That’s the choice… do choose well…
