Poroshenko Raps Rada for Not Approving Extremist Agenda

00 Svoboda nazis. 22.03.14

THIS is what the Ukrainian junta stands for… and they have the gall to call others “terrorists”…



Note well that the USA in general and the Republican Party in particular approve of this dictatorial action of strongman Poroshenko. I’d say that it’s much too early to crow about anything… the junta forces are losing in Novorossiya, and there’s much civil disobedience in nominally junta-controlled areas. Remember, they called THREE mobilisations, and very few showed up. I believe that the junta is grasping at straws. I think that the junta bigs are preparing boltholes in the West, especially, in the USA and Canada. Look for Darlin’ Yuliya the Landshark at Saratoga next year… it’s the “August place to be”… and she’ll wanna hobnob with the Whitneys and the Mellons.

The Ukraine? God alone knows… and He’s not telling me (let alone clueless pundits like Rush Limbaugh, Rod Dreher, and Ann Coulter)…



Junta strongman P A Poroshenko blasted the Rada, saying, “I don’t know how to work with the Rada, when half of it won’t vote to recognise the Lugansk People’s Republic (LNR) and Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) as terrorist organizations. I don’t know how to work with a parliament where the majority represents a ‘fifth column’ controlled from abroad, whole factions. The danger of this is only rising”. Poroshenko’s reference to a “fifth column” is a strong term. It originated in the Spanish Civil War, where Franco’s fascists literally sent a “fifth column“ of spies and provocateurs to try to capture Madrid from inside the city. Nowadays, the term has a wider usage; it refers to any group of people who undermine a larger group… such as a nation or a besieged city… from within.

On 22 July, the Rada voted to recognise the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crash near Donetsk as a terrorist act, calling on the world to identify the DNR, which controls the area, and the LNR, as terrorist organisations. However, such a definition apparently failed to materialise in the Ukraine. On top of the humanitarian crisis in the east, the Ukraine suddenly plunged into political turmoil. The country faces snap elections after the ruling coalition collapsed on 24 July.

Poroshenko told the media he’d hold early elections, “despite the law” and “whatever the circumstances”. One of his main targets is the KPU, illegally outlawed when the coalition collapsed. The KPU was a vocal critic of many of the junta’s current policies, including the repressions in Novorossiya, the failure to investigate mass killings in Odessa and Kiev, and austerity measures demanded by the West as preconditions of IMF loans. On Friday night, Poroshenko boasted, “I’m proud that during my presidency the Communist faction ceased to exist”. He added that after the elections, he’d erase the party from “the Ukrainian political map”.

Experts see the shrinking political field in Kiev as an attempt to purge the leadership and shape a compliant parliament. John Laughland from the Institute of Democracy and Cooperation in Paris told us, “When they overthrew President V F Yanukovich on 21 February, the parliament voted back new powers in terms of going back to the 2004 constitution. Now, the new president, Poroshenko, discovers that this new constitution doesn’t suit him, so, he needs to purge the parliament, he needs to stigmatise people who don’t agree with his policies as fifth columnists”.
