R A Silantyev Called Orthodox Warrior I I Strelkov a “Hero of our Time”

00 Strelkov and his men. Russia. 24.06.14

______________________________

R A Silantyev, head of the Human Rights Centre of the Worldwide Russian People’s Council (VRNS), believes that the example of DNR opolchenie commander I I Strelkov is inspirational. At a roundtable in Moscow he said, “I believe that Strelkov is a classic example of a hero of our time. For all generations, both youth and middle-aged, he’s a very animating and inspiring exemplar. Strelkov and his fighters may well become heroes in literature or in films, for their example is important for our youth, as they’ve lacked real heroes in our time”. Speaking about the development of friendly relations with the peoples of the Caucasus, Silantyev said, “What happened in Novorossiya united Russians, Chechens, and Ossetians more than a thousand conferences ever could. When people are in the same trench together and fascists, Banderovtsy, and other liberal* scum shoot at them, the bond of unity that forms between them is stronger than that fostered by many peaceful activities”.

*”Liberal” in Russian political discourse means the same as “conservative” in Anglosphere terms… that is, deregulation, small government, “economic freedom”, and libertarianism. ”Conservative” in Russian terms is nothing like the Anglosphere term, as it posits a strong state and government, strict regulation of the greedy business class, and a generous set of social guarantees. By “liberal scum”, Roman Anatolyevich means something like the right wing of the US Republican Party (John McCain, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, et al).

Junta Admits that Most of Kolomoisky’s “Battalion” Had Criminal Records… “Ceasefire” Never Existed Except in the Imaginations of Starry-Eyed Westerners

00 donetsk. 03. 24.06.14

______________________________

Rada People’s Deputy O V Lyashko admitted that former criminals make up much of the so-called “Azov Battalion”, a unit of unmilitary bully boys raised by oligarch I V Kolomoisky.  He said in an interview, “The fact that people were formerly convicted isn’t a stigma for life. I want to tell you… half of the fighters of the Azov special division are former convicts”. At the same time, Lyashko said, “It isn’t important that many in this battalion had previous criminal records”. He pointed up that MVDU personnel without criminal records fought in the opolchenie. In explaining his position he said, “So, let former convicts fight those who don’t have criminal records, but who surrendered to the enemy”. Earlier, reports said that the “Azov Battalion” took part in the repressions in Novorossiya, funded personally by Kolomoisky. At present, it has some 500 members {one can’t call such unrepentant criminal trash “soldiers”: editor}. A source in the Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council (SNBOU) reported that Kolomoisky is the most outspoken proponent of repression in Novorossiya.

Editor:

Lyashko is a ravening neo-Nazi; he’s even farther to the right than O Ya Tyagnibok is (such is possible). He favours the death penalty for opolchenietsy; so, one can see why he favours using criminal swine in the repression operation. Human Rights Watch condemns this asshole… he’s such a piece-of-work that even the zapadniki can’t stomach him. This guy is an A-Number-One kook. He deserves to die SLOWLY… I’m not jesting or joking.

Kolomoisky’s incensed that the People’s Republics nationalised “his” properties. He’s a typical moneygrubbing member of the Affluent Effluent sludge. He’s angered that it seems that the DNR and LNR aren’t going to sink into oblivion. Will he attack the present ruling junta? Only time will tell us…

On Tuesday, according to Pervy Kanal correspondent Aleksandr Yevstigneyev, shooting continues in Novorossiya despite the truce, as the network’s journalists came under mortar fire near Slavyansk. Fortunately, no one was hurt. So far, it’s unclear who opened fire and whether the attack caused casualties or destruction in Slavyansk. There was shooting in both the Lugansk People’s Republic (LNR) and the neighbouring Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR).

******

On Tuesday, Interfax reported that Aleksei Karyakin, the Chairman of the LNR Supreme Soviet, told a press conference, “We reached an agreement during a consultative meeting in Donetsk that any military operations and movement of armoured vehicles and troops would stop until 10.00 27 June. Our side didn’t open fire… we honestly honour our agreements. We also cancelled military operations. However, we can see that our adversary isn’t honouring the stipulated conditions. Today, they carried out an attack against Privolye, demolished a power substation at the Privolnenskaya coal mine, killing a woman and injuring many civilians… they struck primarily at civilian infrastructure and businesses. To achieve peace, we’ve started a prisoner exchange. Yesterday, we handed one prisoner over to the Ukrainian side, and we hope for an appropriate response”.

Editor:

I could’ve predicted that the junta wouldn’t honour its word… the Uniates back it, and they’re false to the bone, an apostate organisation. After all, the junta uses criminals in its armed bands, P A Poroshenko is a former gangster, and Kolomoisky acquired his wealth in “interesting” ways. We’re talking about people who make the American Robber Barons of the 19th century look innocent and pure. The American Establishment calls such trash “legitimate” and the Uniates and schismatics bless them.

Dmitri Timchuk, the head of the Informational Resistance group in Kiev, posted on Facebook that the opolchenie shot down a junta Mi-8 helicopter near Slavyansk using a MANPADS. Preliminary reports indicate that crash killed nine servicemen, including three flightcrew.

******

On Tuesday, in Donetsk, A Yu Borodai, Chairman of the DNR Government, said, “Not long ago, a battle began in the suburbs of Donetsk with artillery and armoured vehicles. There are already dead and wounded”.

Editor:

One can see the worth of Uniate words… they promised “peace”… they delivered “war”. Don’t forget, the Uniates gave us Talerhof (and here)… they murdered St Maksim Sandovich (and here)… they gave us the massacre of the Poles in Volynia (and here)… they murdered Blessed Gavriil Kostelnik (and here)… they brutalised Fr Mikhail Shuvar… they stole hundreds of churches at gunpoint after 1991. This is just more of the same… for my take on the Unia and Uniates, click here

On Tuesday, A Yu Borodai, Chairman of the DNR Government, said that the DNR and the LNR would adopt a common Constitution, saying, “Just now, the DNR Supreme Soviet voted for the Constitution of Novorossiya. In due course, the LNR will adopt this document, too”.

******

Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin said at a meeting of the UN Security Council, “On 17 June, Russian journalists Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin died near Lugansk as a result of a mortar attack. We need to carefully investigate this crime… too much evidence indicates that this was a deliberate action”.

On Tuesday, A Yu Borodai, Chairman of the DNR Government, said at a press conference that the junta didn’t stop hostilities in Novorossiya in spite of an announced ceasefire until 27 June. In the meantime, Ukrainian President P A Poroshenko confirmed the violation during a telephone conversation with the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, but alleged that the opolchenie broke the ceasefire in the south-east of Ukraine, according to the website of the President of Ukraine. Borodai said, “Today was just another day of the war. They shelled Slavyansk, as well as Snezhnoye. Recently, fighting began on the outskirts of Donetsk near the airport, with armoured vehicles, artillery, and mortar fire. Kiev’s announcement of a ceasefire was ludicrous. Kiev never meant to stop the hostilities. Both sides have casualties. I can make an official statement that there hasn’t been any ceasefire and it looks like we won’t have one in future. Kiev is full of hypocrisy; the contact group sent by Kiev has no impact on the situation and had no authority. Therefore, we have no alternative to fighting.

DNR Supreme Soviet Chairman D V Pushilin said, “Actually, Kiev is stonewalling the ceasefire agreement. Today, soon after the consultation, their troops fired on Semyonovka, killing about five people. A heavy armoured column is moving towards Donetsk. This is just some of the aggressive actions by the occupation forces on our territory. That’s the price of our agreement with Kiev. We believe that the Kiev authorities consider it a formality required for signing the economic part of the Association Agreement with the EU. Kiev needs a truce, at least officially. In fact, it doesn’t exist”.

Editor:

Look at Poroshenko’s chutzpah. He breaks the ceasefire and blames the patriots. The present putschist junta is a criminal cabal, literally… it has convicted criminals in its armed bands, a former gangster (Poroshenko) leads it, a known thief (Kolomoisky) is its éminence grise, and its spiritual icon (S A Bandera) was a murderer and terrorist. Shitbirds of a feather DO flock together…

Shelling Continues, Ceasefire Sham… Patriots Blow Up Key Railway Bridge

00 slavyansk 01. 22.06.14

______________________________

ITAR-TASS reported that a opolchenie source said that people heard gunfire near Slavyansk shortly after midnight on Tuesday, but it was unclear which side fired the sporadic shots. Reports said that junta forces shelled Semyonovka in the suburbs of Slavyansk, wounding several opolchenietsy. During the night of June 22-23 June, junta forces fired occasionally from Karachun Hill, damaging buildings in Mashchermet. On Monday, shortly before midnight, witnesses heard gunfire on the outskirts of Slavyansk, but it stopped after some time. In the meantime, the water supply system remains out-of-order in Slavyansk and most of the city lacks electricity.

Sergei Melnichuk, commander of the junta Aydar Battalion {a bunch of motley untrained and undisciplined Galician Uniate fascist irregulars: editor} said in an interview, “I’m sure there’s been betrayal amongst the leadership. Those taken prisoner laugh at us and say, ‘We know when any of your planes or helicopters takes off, we know all your instructions. We know when your airstrikes are coming, we just leave our positions and return when they’re over’”. On 18 June, according to V D Bolotov, the head of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LNR), the opolchenie almost fully destroyed the battalion as it headed from Shchastye to Lugansk. Later, the junta dissolved the battalion and accused its commander Melnichuk of intentionally leaving the battlefield. Melnichuk, for his part, slammed poor troop control, saying that the junta forces and Border Service would continue losing their depots and personnel due to a lack of coördination and the leadership’s incompetence. Meanwhile, Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council (SNBOU) Secretary A V Paruby said, “President P A Poroshenko took the issue under his personal control and suspended all the orders on the 25. Territorial Defence Battalion (Aydar). I’m sure he’d look at the situation and make the only correct and appropriate decision with regard to Aydar”.

Editor:

My belief is that the junta isn’t in control of much. The “warrants” issued against the LNR and Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) leadership is proof of that. The forces lack motivation, the junta changed their commanders several times, supplies are sporadic, late, or undelivered, and untrained levies are out in the field. It’s a gigantic shit sandwich laying on the table… all comers will have to take a big bite at the proper time. The junta is gonna pay for coddling the oligarchs and their unrestrained thievery and corruption.

By the way, Paruby is nothing but a terrorist (he’s a longtime partner-in-crime of the Neo-Nazi O Ya Tyagnibok) whose only qualification for his post is that he was a violent Euromaidan mob leader. He’s a vicious Far Right fascist, one of the worst in the junta. The junta put him in charge of the repressions in Novorossiya… that’s why we had such enormities as the Krasny Liman hospital massacre. Note well that the Uniates refuse to condemn this POS and his war crimes. That’s why the Uniate hierarchy deserves to swing at the end of a rope alongside the junta. Let God see and judge…

Interfax reported that I I Strelkov, the DNR Defence Minister, posted a statement on P Yu Gubaryov’s Facebook page, “After 18.00 yesterday, artillery fire and local gun battles continued in the Semyonovka area. The adversary opened mortar fire on the village and continued to ‘hunt’ passing cars by firing at them from a tank stationed at their position near Vostochny. Five opolchenietsy sustained minor injuries, but we eliminated an enemy mortar detachment. Mortars fired from both sides in Semyonovka since morning. Unfortunately, the fire injured three of our people, one of them seriously. Shootouts continue there. Passage through the village is virtually impossible. We observed large-scale enemy redeployments near Kramatorsk last night, several new positions with APCs and Hummers appeared to the west of the village on Tuesday morning”.

Editor:

The Uniate junta lies again! Note well that S Yu Shevchuk and F A Denisenko BLESS this bunch of greedster thieves, liars, and bullies. It tells you volumes on the character of the Uniates and schismatics, doesn’t it? Also reflect on the fact that Victor Potapov didn’t resign from Radio Liberty after Langley feted these enablers of abomination recently. It means that he SUPPORTS the effort of the local CIA puppets to attack canonical Orthodoxy in the Ukraine. Hilarion Kapral should take note.

The MVDU said that railway traffic ground to a halt after unknown persons blew up a rail bridge just outside Orekhov in Zaporozhe Oblast. The police learned of the incident at 02.20 last night. Senior police officers, detectives, explosives experts, K9 service units, criminologists, and investigators are at the scene and the SBU opened an investigation opened into the explosion. The bombing caused no casualties, but it totally paralysed rail movement in that section. Non-electrified railroad lines cross Orekhov, linking Zaporozhe with Berdyansk, Mariupol, and Donetsk. Orekhov is 63 kilometres (@40 miles) east of Zaporozhe, on the banks of the Konka River.

Editor:

This paralyses the logistics chain for the junta forces in Novorossiya. It’s obviously a patriot spetsnaz operation.

The Rostov Oblast branch of the Federal Security Service (FSB) Border Guard Directorate said in a press release, “The information available to the Rostov Oblast FSB indicates that 100 Ukrainian border guards, including 20 officers, arrived from the Izvarino crossing point at our Donetsk border crossing from 22.30 MSK on 20 June to 10.00 MSK 21 June. Fifteen of the group that crossed into Russia refused to return, and we turned over the other 85 to the Ukrainian side. We found weapons and ammunition apparently abandoned by Ukrainian border guards… 53 AK-74 assault rifles, three pistols, one grenade launcher, 116 grenades, and 7,812 rounds of ammunition… in the area surrounding the Donetsk border crossing point”.
