Bishop Longin of the UPTs/MP on the Junta Mobilisation: “Don’t Give Your Children to the Satanists to Die!”

00 #savedonbasspeople 01. 29.05.14

_______________________________

This anti-war appeal of Bishop Longin is especially popular amongst national minorities in the Ukrainian border regions. When the fourth wave of mobilisation began in Romanian villages in Chernovtsy Oblast, people snapped up copies of the Romanian-language newspaper Libertatea Cuvantului with an appeal of UPTs/MP Bishop Longin, the well-known Superior of Bachensky Monastery in Chernovtsy Oblast. This monastery and its superior are famous for the fact that it shelters hundreds of sick orphans, 200 of them personally adopted the abbot. The film Форпост (Forpost: Outpost) on the Vladyki Longin and his children is widely known. However, the Bishop addressed his appeal to yet-complete and happy families. He first released it in September, but the newspaper (owned by a member of the Chernovtsy Gorsoviet) printed it a day after the junta announced the mobilisation:

I ask you only one thing… come together and don’t send your children to die.  Our Orthodox faith doesn’t allow us to kill each other. For the sake of their political interests, for the sake of defending their economic gain, for the sake of defending their leadership positions, they want to kill our people, who live peacefully with faith in God. My family, you don’t have the right to shoot and kill. God gives us life, and God takes it away. The overlords of the Ukraine said, “The Orthodox faith is the biggest enemy of the Ukraine”. That’s what they told outsiders, who can’t accept the truth due to their blindness.

How can you pick up a gun and shoot at the image of God? He has, as we have, a mother, wife, and children. What forces us to kill each other? True, they only scratch the surface… already, there are thousands and tens of thousands of dead, but they only talk about hundreds. I don’t bless the war. We call all of you to peace. There are about 10,000 dead soldiers; not even their mothers know that they’re no longer alive. I don’t involve myself in politics, but what hurts me is that this isn’t a war with an external enemy; it’s a war between us.

The USA wants to see Orthodox killing each other, they like to see us shooting at each other, whilst they drink, eat, and have fun… they glory in the blood shed on our holy land. Europe, of which the Holy Fathers said, “Do not worship the beast”, now stands on the sidelines and rejoices at our spilled Orthodox blood. Brothers! We all feel that we’re on the verge of World War III. That’s why I urge you… repent! Don’t give our children over to death!

During the Liturgy, I’ll never commemorate the damned leaders of our country… they’re unbelievers with no fear of God, who sit in their seats and wave their hands to command… “Kill!” I beg only one thing, “If you can, O Lord, enlighten them, as darkness covers them, and poison fills them. They have no taste for anything except spilled blood, which they enjoy. Satanists! They’re Servants of Satan! If they won’t stop, they’ll defy God, but that’ll bring down much grief!”

Equally disturbing is the situation in bordering Romania and, even more so, in multinational Bessarabia. In Belgorod-Dnestrovsky Raion, the local Voenkom cancelled the Constitution! It banned any reservist to leave the area unless they have permission. Lawyers noted in the Odessa newspaper Dumskaya that this order is contrary to the article of the Constitution which provides for freedom of movement (this limitation is possible only in case of emergency or martial law). It is also illegal to dismiss those called up as the law guarantees to every conscripted man continued employment and wages during the year. However, the local bosses see no crime in this. Yuri Piskun, the head of the Odessa Oblast Voenkom said, “If they see that people are leaving the area, then, what else should they do?” However, why should this surprise us when the actual mobilisation violates the Constitution?

However, in Bessarabia, not all “ran away”. Some “defended their rights” in upholding constitutional rights. Kulevcha rebelled against mobilisation. Six Voenkom members brought 240 subpoenas, in a rural locality of less than a thousand people. In response to the threat of criminal prosecution, the villagers chanted, “No to war!” and “We want peace!” With great audacity, they confronted the military officers, telling them that martial law wasn’t in force. Then, they expelled the Voenkom from the village. Standing there in the village square, they appealed to the local authorities, calling the mobilisation forced and illegal. They promised that the entire village would resist any attempt to seize their relatives. Similarly, residents of the Bulgarian village of Dmitrovka in Bolgrad Raion expelled the Voenkom, which brought 200 summonses. We don’t know if a Right Sector punitive expedition is going to descend on these Bessarabian villages.

Let’s look at another place where it didn’t happen either, Peregonsk in Kalush Raion in Ivano-Frankovsk Oblast. Supposedly, it was full of Galician National Consciousness, it had “vowed at war with the Raška”. So, on 19 January, right before the start of mobilisation, 26 buses left Peregonsk loaded with workers… bound for Khabarovsk and Krasnoyarsk Krai. Oleg Goncharuk, the Chairman of the Oblast OGA, stated, “In the region, the critics of the mobilisation are active, the Podkarpatski aren’t sufficiently aware of the need to replenish the Armed Forces”. However, he refused to admit that local activists resist the mobilisation. Rather, he believed, “It’s either an unprofessional Voenkom or its due to bribery of officials”. That is why the Right Sector decided to assume control of the mobilisation. In Galicia, they’ve gone to the forest… in Odessa, as usual, they go “underground”… but, of course, it’s much more tragic than funny.

Greece won’t Cooperate with “Troika”, Rejects Aid Extension

00 Vladimir Kremlyov. Greek Debt. 2012

________________________________

The new leftist Greek government said that it won’t cooperate with the “troika” of international lenders, and that it doesn’t plan to seek an extension for its aid package, which is set to expire at the end of February. Without the aid, Greek banks could face a shutoff of European Central Bank funding. On Friday, Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis held a joint press conference with Jeroen Dijsselbloem, head of the Eurozone finance ministers’ group. Varoufakis said, “This position enabled us to win the trust of the Greek people. Our first action as a government won’t be to reject the rationale of questioning this programme through a request to extend it. We respect institutions, but we don’t plan to cooperate with that committee”. The meeting between Varoufakis and Dijsselbloem is to lay the groundwork for visits by newly-elected Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Varoufakis to London, Paris, and Rome next week. The new Greek leadership stated its intention to attempt to loosen the terms of the massive 240 billion Euro (19 trillion Roubles. 1.7 trillion Renminbi. 16.8 trillion INR. 270 billion USD. 343 billion CAD. 348 billion AUD. 180 billion UK Pounds) bailout. The new government fuelled panic among creditors and investors by promising to freeze privatisations and rehire state workers, in addition to rolling back other austerity measures mandated by the bailout.

Thousands of Junta Troops Trapped in the Donbass

______________________________

The VSN cut the only road linking Debaltsevo to junta-occupied territory, trapping at least 7,000 junta troops. The VSN offered the junta forces the chance to surrender. The VSN stormed and captured Uglegorsk, a junta communication and supply centre, about 10 kilometres from Debaltsevo. “Semyon Semyonchenko”, Rada People’s Deputy and commander of the Donbass irregular Battalion, posted on his Facebook page that junta forces fled Uglegorsk. He claimed that the VSN attacked his unit from the rear. DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko stated that the VSN captured Uglegorsk in a violent “dawn-to-dusk operation” and offered junta troops a chance to surrender, promising to spare their lives, saying, “Guys, my proposal is for you to lay down your arms and surrender. You’re fighting the wrong people. You have only this chance to save your lives. Surrender and you’ll live. I promise that all of you will return home afterwards”.

Meanwhile, the junta reportedly ordered army commanders to gun down deserters on the spot. A leaked document published on the CyberBerkut hacktivist website stated that the SBU forbade hospitals from revealing real battlefield losses. The junta called an emergency “cabinet” meeting on Friday to discuss the situation in Novorossiya. The situation has rapidly deteriorated since 18 January, when the junta launched a massive assault on patriot territories. Junta forces shell patriot-controlled areas on a daily basis, including Donetsk, with each side blaming the other. However, the junta revealed that since the beginning of the latest draft, as many as 10,000 junta troops are AWOL.

Editor:

Firstly, Semyonchenko shouldn’t caterwaul. Anyone with a lick of military experience knows that lines aren’t continuous… that’s moronic. Indeed, one of the classic techniques of infantry infiltration tactics (unchanged since their introduction in the First World War) is to find either a weak point or a gap in the line, to attack the enemy in the flank or from the rear. That is, the VSN commander was a trained man… Semyonchenko is an untrained unmilitary lout and idiot.

The most important factoid in this is the fact that the junta admits that 10,000 troops took French leave. That means that the number of deserters is much higher. The junta forces are like the Guomindang forces in 1949 or the ARVN in 1975. They’re goners… but when? No one wants to die for the junta except for small groups of Uniate, schismatic, and sectarian fanatics. May God cut this junta’s time short… the people of Novorossiya, Little Russia, Galicia, Bukovina, and Podkarpatskaya don’t deserve any more suffering. It’s time for the so-called “Ukraine” to go into the dustbin of history.

OSCE Saw NO Movement of Military Traffic from the Russian Federation to Novorossiya… Uniate Lies Baldfaced Black Propaganda

A report for the period of 21 to 28  January stated that OSCE monitors at the Donetsk and Gukovo border crossings on the Russian-Ukrainian border didn’t observe any movement of military hardware across the border over the past seven days. The monitors didn’t see any military movement at the two checkpoints except for cars of the Russian border service. The OSCE report said, “The situation remained calm, the OM continued to observe that the Russian Federation border guard and customs service conducted checks and controls. Regular local and long-distance bus connections continued to operate between Lugansk and cities in the Russian Federation. Monitors observed more people on buses arriving from the Ukraine then leaving the Russian Federation. As in previous weeks, people crossing the border approached the observers to share their stories, experiences, and observations from the Ukrainian side of the border, for example, heavy shelling in Lugansk and Stakhanov, schools hit by aerial bombs in Stakhanov”, adding that the observer mission wasn’t able to verify any of these accounts.
