The DNR Minoborony Thinks it Probable that the Junta will Try to Disrupt Victory Day Celebrations in the DNR on 9 May

Today, DNR Deputy Defence Minister E А Basurin stated at a media briefing, “Ukrainian nationalist elements are preparing to commit provocations in the DNR and LNR in the period before, on, and after our celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the VOV”. He pointed up that activists formed a covert sabotage unit in the Lvov Oblast of 300-500 members recruited from radical groups, which the junta plans to deploy near Stanichno-Luganskoe (12 kilometres (7.5 miles) north of Lugansk) to commit provocations wearing Russian military uniforms. Basurin observed, “It’s important to note that NATO instructors are in Lvov Oblast training nationalist elements; on 17 April, 300 American paratroopers of the 173 Airborne Brigade arrived at the Yavorov polygon* (50 kilometres (33 miles) from Lvov). It’s possible that foreign troops would take part in provocations in the DNR and LNR, to destabilise and disrupt the celebrations of Victory Day, of the victory of Soviet people over fascism”. Due to the intel that came in to us, we’ll intensify patrols and strengthen garrisons; we’ll also step up checks at roadblocks and checkpoints. We’d collaborate with police to identify and interrogate suspects. We ask the citizens of the LNR and DNR to be vigilant and promptly report suspicious persons to us”.

It’s important to note that Yavorov Raion is right on the border with Poland; Yavorov is the first major town on the motorway between Poland and Lvov. That is, the NATO troops aren’t in the Ukraine proper, rather, they’re in the Lvovshchina (a part of the Habsburg Empire and of interwar Poland). If necessary, they can skedaddle quickly back to Poland in less than an hour on the motorway (it appears that the Americans learned from their fiasco in Gori during the ’08 South Ossetia War). Add in the fact that the American and Canadian troops aren’t trained instructors, but regular combat units, it looks like that their real role is to secure a retreat path to Poland for Western elements in the Ukraine (and to allow a bolthole for pro-American nationalist terrorists… they know too much, but it’s too difficult to kill them on home ground). Probably, it’s where the Americans and their Canadian poodles will take the last looted resources of the Ukraine, as a convenient guarded stopping point on the way to Poland.

Again, don’t listen to asshats such as Stratfor and Fort Russ… pull out your maps… look carefully at what’s deployed where… have an idea of what modern military units “look like”. For instance, media releases ranted about “120 US tanks in the Baltics”. Photographic evidence showed that the “tanks” were a mixture of wheeled APCs and tanks… 120 AFVs equal two heavy mechanised battalions… NOT EVEN A FULL BRIGADE. Besides that, the images revealed that there weren’t any MICVs at all. In all, 590 American and Canadian paratroopers are in Yavorov. That’s not even a full battalion… in short, the West knows that its client is going down the shitter. The present deployment is to protect the last known secure retreat route to Poland. Everyone knows that the present situation is political kabuki… mostly for domestic purposes in the USA. It allows both Republican and Democratic pols to claim that they did their all to preserve “the free Ukraine”. The Canadian troops are there because Galician Uniates are a big political presence in the Prairie Provinces (Ed Stelmach, anyone?). Once you understand that, you almost feel sorry for the junta. Their Western “allies” are anything else but that, and their patriot opponents are waxing their ass at the front. It’s only a matter of time. How long? I haven’t the foggiest… no one does. However, I hope that the Dear Lord cuts the time short… too many innocents have suffered already.
