The Ukraine: A Western-Backed Russophobic Tragedy

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. We Have a Victory... You Have a Zoo. 2014

We Have a Victory… You Have a Zoo!

Vitaly Podvitsky



For those who wish me to mince words, for those easily offended, for those who want journalists to pussy-foot around mumbling pleasantries, for those who believe blindly in the media, for those who think the West can speak or think no evil, then, it’s better not to read this piece. A cabal of demonic liars controls the west. For those individuals in the West who I know and respect, this piece isn’t for you, or your families. For those who’ve allowed themselves to be brainwashed to the point where they eagerly swallow, without question, the pile of nonsense shoved down their throats daily by the media, my advice is do more listening and reading and less speaking and writing.

The fact that the EU foreign ministers are sitting today talking about imposing more sanctions on Russia over the situation in the Ukraine speaks volumes about where the hearts and minds of the EU lie… lie is the correct word. There isn’t a shred of evidence that Moscow is behind any official state-sponsored support for the anti-Fascist freedom fighters in [Novorossiya], who wish to remain Russian-speaking Ukrainians and who don’t want any part of the Ukraine planned by the Fascist-backed murderous terrorist western-supported Putsch which seized power illegally back in February after ousting democratically elected President V F Yanukovich.

It was a campaign orchestrated from outside the Ukraine simply because Yanukovich tried to protect the Ukrainian economy by not signing up for a closer trading deal with the EU (the Association Agreement) after the EU typically imposed intrusive, arrogant, and unacceptable conditions for internal changes which belonged to Ukrainians, and Ukrainians alone. The EU, acting yet again like a collective bunch of Imperialists who only yesteryear drew lines on maps, slaughtered “natives” with machine-guns “when they saw the whites of their eyes”, wrecked economies and committed genocide in Africa and Latin America, imposed civilisation with the Bible and the bullet, and sold seventy million people into slavery… Africa’s Holocaust.

What followed was a gang of anti-Russian Fascists and their sympathisers rising to power in Ukraine, torturing and murdering Russian-speakers in the streets, calling for the deaths of Russians and Jews, and staging a Presidential election that elected P A Poroshenko. Meanwhile, the Crimean people stated en masse in a free and fair referendum that they didn’t wish to be part of this Ukraine and wished to return to Russia (which they should’ve never left), whilst the people of [Novorossiya], wary of the Fascist hordes rising to power in Kiev, and wary of their Russophobic edicts and claims, took up arms and declared independence.

What followed that was a spate of Russophobic hysteria in the Western media and amongst Western governments defying the laws of logic, which underlined the notion that a clique of pig-headed ignorant lukewarm failed politicians governs the West, whose main aim in life is to feather their own nests and pander to the whims of the lobbies which placed them in power and whom they serve. Suddenly, they painted Russia as an invader, they accused Russia of being responsible for the actions of the anti-Fascist freedom fighters, and, now, unbelievably, Western newspapers accuse President Putin personally of having downed the MH-17 flight over [Novorossiya].

For a start, the Crimean transition from a Fascist dictatorship to democracy within the Russian Federation, where the President was democratically elected several times with popularity rates far higher than any western leader, and probably more than a lot of them put together, was wholly in line with the law. Secondly, how can Russia invade what is, after all, Russia? Thirdly, the direct influence of Moscow in [Novorossiya] was grossly exaggerated by the West and, indeed, if those in Government in the EU bothered to inform themselves and speak to a [Novorossiyan], they’d see that these people don’t need Russia for anything, neither does the average Russian consider Russia engaged in any form of formal support, because this doesn’t exist. Fourthly, regarding the tragic incident with MH-17, let the focus be on the families and loved ones of the victims, first, and let the proper authorities carry out a proper investigation, second.

Mr Poroshenko, hand over the registers taken by the Ukrainian authorities from the Air Traffic Control Centre and stop making idiotic comments about Russia. If you don’t have the intelligence to govern your country, and if you aren’t man enough to stand up to the self-seeking pieces of excrement parading as your “Government”, then, stick to your disgusting chocolate factories and stop having your Fascist forces murder women and children. For all of those involved in any way with NATO, and that includes a substantial part of EU countries, then, read this.

As we can see, those who today point the finger at Russia and impose sanctions have a dreadful, horrific, and revolting few centuries of history behind them. They were happy to hide behind Russia in World War II whilst the USSR lost 26 million souls defeating Hitler and Nazism, while how many Ukrainians sided with the Fascists, how many Ukrainians supported the murderer and torturer Bandera, who slaughtered women and children, and then only opened up another front in the West because they had worries that all of Europe would become Communist.

Why not? The USSR provided free and excellent public services from beginning to end… free maternal care, guaranteed maternity leave, free education, free higher education, free leisure time activities, free sports facilities and training, free or heavily subsidised transportation, guaranteed housing, free, zero homelessness, guaranteed jobs, zero unemployment, free or heavily subsidised public utilities, safety on the streets, security of the State, 250 billion dollars per year spent on development projects overseas, excellent hospitals, healthcare systems, education systems half-way across the globe after helping countries to fight off the yoke of Imperialism, then, an indexed pension, free basic foodstuffs, and a free funeral.

Let the west look at its navel and see the nightmare societies it’s produced… lobbies growing richer and richer sucking the blood of the oppressed populations, who in their pig-headed arrogance nod obediently and accept it all like a herd of sheep. Spiralling prices, no jobs, no future, people can’t leave their homes because marauding gangs of drug addicts prowl their streets… sterling job, what? These people today impose sanctions on Russia? These people who dare to point the finger at Moscow amidst a flurry of lies? Moscow didn’t invade Iraq illegally outside the auspices of the UNSC, Moscow didn’t set up prison and torture camps halfway across the globe, Moscow didn’t side with terrorists in Libya and Syria, Moscow didn’t rip the heart out of Serbia (another country which fought bravely against Fascism in World War II) and give it to gangs of Albanian organ traffickers, rapists, and murderers just because President Clinton had his personal issues and needed to create a focus of attention away from the White House.

So, what’s my advice to Moscow? The further you are away from the West in general, NATO in particular, and the FUKUS Axis (France-UK-US) especially, the less intense the stench. Doing business with those who sport a smile one day and have half-a-dozen stones hidden behind their backs with their left hand and stab you in the back the following day, doing business with a bunch of insolent, arrogant, hypocritical Russophobic shits, isn’t dignified. My advice is to disassociate yourself with the lot of them, tell them where to put themselves, slam the door, bolt it three times, lock it, throw away the key, turn your back, and not have anything to do with them ever again. Latin America loves Russia, Africa loves Russia, and Southeast Asia loves Russia. The BRICS bloc has multiple opportunities for trade among brothers and sisters who smile and don’t snarl, who haven’t spent centuries colonising, stealing from, and massacring peoples and destroying societies. Today, Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa… tomorrow, Indonesia, Iran, Nigeria, Venezuela, Uruguay, and how many others can join together in the world’s largest trading block, dump the USD, and watch the West squirm in its collective inadequacy.

My advice is to hit back at sanctions with a massive and unequivocal determination and cold-blooded nerves of steel, slam your fist down on the table and show them what happens when you cage a bear and prod it with sticks time and time again, insulting its dignity, and hurting its heart. To hell with the lot of them, they’re a bunch of Russophobic, rude, self-seeking, pigshit-ignorant, arrogant, and intrusive bastards.

My apologies to shit, pigs, and pig shit.

25 July 2014. Some of My Favourite Things… V K Troshin, the First Singer and “Owner” of “Moscow Nights”

00 vladimir troshin. 25.07.14


The original recording of Moscow Nights by V K Troshin… most Russians will tell you that it’s the best one


G K Ots’ rendition of Moscow Nights


B T Shtokolov singing Выхожу один я на дорогу (Vykhozhu odin ya na dorogu: I Walk Alone Down the Road), one of the classic romansy


Тишина (Tishina: Silence)… another song by Troshin


Everybody’s heard of Подмосковные вечера (Podmoskovnye vechera: Moscow Nights, literally, Evening in the Moscow Suburbs)… but not so many people know of V K Troshin, the first singer of the song in 1955. That’s right… Moscow Nights isn’t a folk song, it’s a modern “composed” song (by the famous composer V P Solovyov-Sedoi). It’s one of the best-loved songs in the world… coming straight to you from the heart of the Evil Empire. Let’s be frank… life went on in the USSR… most people didn’t bother with politics, and if they “threw a pinch of incense on the altar”, the state left them alone. It wasn’t like what the Reagan Hard Right nutters said it was (nor was the USA like what Sov propaganda said it was… propaganda in the Cold War on both sides wasn’t overly convincing or particularly truthful).

Vladimir Konstantinovich “owns” this song… all Russians know that… now, YOU know that. His voice wasn’t as deep as B T Shtokolov‘s was, nor was it as powerful as G K Ots‘… but it had a soft lyricism not usually found in the bass/baritone range. By the way, he wasn’t a trained singer… he was an actor at the Moscow Art Theatre from 1947 to 1988. Perhaps, that’s why his voice doesn’t have that “studied” undertone that you find in most conservatoire-trained vocalists (indeed, it has more the aspect of speech, not song).


Svoboda and UDAR Quit Ruling Coalition… “Rabbit” Forced to Resign… Kolomoisky Lickspittle Named Interim PM

00 the rabbit goes down. 25.07.14



The “Rabbit” is A P Yatsenyuk… he’s called that because he looks somewhat like a Sov-era character called “Rabbit” in the multifilm Winnie the Pooh Goes Visiting… it’s not completely complimentary. V I Balogh is a gangster of Magyar background from Podkarpatskaya Rus who was an accomplice of P A Poroshenko when the latter was still engaged in outright crime. Recently, one of Poroshenko’s aides was found dead in Vinnitsa… you see, Poroshenko had offered Balogh a high position, but reneged, claiming that Balogh didn’t steal enough votes for him. The good word has it that Balogh retaliated by “reaching out and touching” Poroshenko’s aide. Nice people…



On Thursday, Svoboda and UDAR announced that their factions in the Rada were leaving the ruling coalition, paving the way for the body’s dissolution. The ruling coalition in the Rada, cobbled together after the February putsch, had 256 members, the majority of them from the erstwhile opposition parties of the Fatherland Front, UDAR, and Svoboda. With today’s resignations from the coalition, its number fell below the constitutional threshold of 226 members, giving the President the legal power to dissolve the Rada within one month. Earlier in June, non-party affiliated deputies V I Balogh and I A Rybakov proposed a draft on the voluntary dissolution of the Rada. Leaders of the UDAR and Svoboda factions and unaffiliated People’s Deputy O V Lyashko authored the resolution proposing the move. Ukrainian President (sic) P A Poroshenko urged the Rada to vote to dissolve itself, stating that Ukrainians wanted early parliamentary elections, referring to polls indicating that 80 percent of Ukrainians demanded a change of government.


On Thursday, Ukrainian Prime Minister A P Yatsenyuk announced his resignation following the collapse of the ruling European Choice Rada coalition, saying, “If no new coalition coalesces after an existing coalition in a parliamentary-presidential republic collapses, the government and the prime minister have to resign. I announce my resignation because of the coalition’s collapse”. Yatsenyuk also expressed disappointment with the Rada’s decision to reject a bill that would allow the government to sell up to 49 percent of the country’s gas transport system to EU and American investors. Rada Speaker A V Turchinov said that the Svoboda and UDAR factions would put forward an interim Prime Minister. According to the Ukrainian constitution, the Prime Minister’s resignation also triggers the entire Cabinet to resign. The present Cabinet of Ministers dissolved by the Rada will continue to sit until a new government comes forward.


Yatsenyuk was one of the most corrupt members of the junta… his mansion was only 300 metres from that of V F Yanukovich. He was also very close to Darlin’ Yuliya the Landshark, having been her bagman for years. This means that Yuliya is out and I V Kolomoisky is in. It means that O Ya Tyagnibok is in. if you thought that the civil war in Novorossiya was bloody up to this point, trust me, it’s going to get far worse before it gets better. Tyagnibok is a violent anti-Semitic neo-Nazi racist… Kolomoisky is a violent greedy money-grubbing Jew (sadly, he lives up to the nasty stereotype)… how long this particular Odd Couple will last after Rabbit’s fall is problematic. It’s a sign that the junta is in the very deep doo-doo… it’s stuck in a political La Brea Tar Pit and it can’t get out. It’s losing… so the junta is making Rabbit walk the plank.

Oh, one last thing… the cancellation of the sale of gas transport assets means that Biden’s son won’t have the opportunity to make a shitload of money. I wonder what Pops will do about that, if anything…



On Thursday, Ukrainian “Interior Minister” A B Avakov posted on Facebook that Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister V B Groisman became acting Prime Minister following A P Yatsenyuk’s resignation, noting, “V B Groisman became acting prime minister at a government meeting”.


This means that Kolomoisky seized power away from Yuliya’s faction… Tyagnibok may be in his corner now, but appointing a Jew as Prime Minister is problematic… I’m no bigot, but I’m reporting what I’m seeing. Most Ukrainians will not respect a Jew in such a position, and that’s that. It shows you that the junta is off its head. However, that means that confusion will increase in the near term, which would mean that bloodshed would go up exponentially.

God have mercy on the suffering peoples of Malorossiya, Novorossiya, Podkarpatskaya Rus, and the Lvovshchina. Their Golgotha just got worse…

Opolchenie Down Four Junta Su-25s

00 donetsk. 24.07.14


On Wednesday, A Yu Borodai, Chairman of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) Government, said, “Our forces used MANPADS to down two Su-25 jets near Dmitrovka”. Lugansk People’s Republic (LNR) spokesman Vladimir Inogorodtsev said, “Yesterday, the opolchenie downed two Su-25 combat jets. It happened near Lugansk, the planes crashed near Zorinsk and Krasny Luch. We have no information about the pilots yet”.

23 July 2014


On Thursday, Deputy Defence Minister A I Antonov said on Rossiya-24 TV, “Russia detected nine strikes on our territory in June and July. If a neighbouring country struck American territory, and, God forbid, they killed an American citizen, what would Americans do?” He stated that aimed strikes hit border posts, killing a Russian civilian, during June and July. Last week, Antonov emphasised, “The Ukraine cynically denies obvious facts and does everything to reject our reports of the shelling of Russian territory”.


On Thursday, the Minoborony said that Ukrainian claims alleging that missiles fired from Russia downed two Su-25 attack aircraft over Novorossiya are “hogwash”. Our source said, “According to Lysenko {a spokesman for the junta SNBOU: editor}, it turns out that these planes weren’t just shot down from Russian territory, which in itself is hogwash, but [that we shot them down] with a single rocket launched from a SAM system yet unknown to science… ‘a powerful action [rocket system]’”.


On Thursday, Sergei Goncharov, President of the Alfa Anti-Terrorism Unit Veterans Association, said at a press conference at RIA-Novosti, commenting on whether Novorossiya partisans are unfairly called “terrorists”, “There’s a civil war in the Ukraine, it isn’t terrorism. Kiev’s military actions aren’t an ‘anti-terrorist operation’. You can’t call the residents of Lugansk and Donetsk terrorists”. The junta labels the opolchenie as “terrorists”, but Western countries use the more neutral term “rebels”. For some time, Moscow called the events in the Ukraine a full-blown civil war.


On Thursday, junta POW pilot N V Savchenko said in an interview on LifeNews TV that the opolchenie in Novorossiya couldn’t have downed the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777. She said, “In my opinion, no; they couldn’t have done it. Only well-trained troops can use the Buk SAM system. Does [the opolchenie] have these trained professionals? Could they set up a Buk complex? I don’t think so. Firstly, they’d have to zero it in. Even if the person served in the military before, and, then, went over to [the opolchenie]… only a person who constantly trains would be able to hit a target”.


On Thursday, junta POW pilot N V Savchenko said in an interview on LifeNews TV that the Ukraine is now in a state of civil war, stating, “People rise up. When they rise up for the sake of what they believe in, and when these beliefs contradict each other, then, that’s a civil war”. At present, Savchenko is in custody in Voronezh. Russian investigators claim that she was a fire spotter during a mortar attack near Lugansk on 17 June that fatally wounded two Russian journalists, Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin. In her interview, Savchenko said, “I’d never point a gun at civilians. I wasn’t aiming at them… they charged me with killing Russian journalists, but I’d never do it. I’d never shoot at an unarmed person”.
