Patriot soldiers on guard for peace at the front in the DNR facing the Ukrop aggressors…
Sergei Zavdoveyev, Peoples Deputy of the DNR Peoples Soviet and Kombat* of the Legion Battalion in the DNR forces, told us:
The discussion at the upcoming meeting on the fate of the Donbass by Russia with French and German leaders without any participation of Ukrainian President Poroshenko is evidence that inviting the Ukrainian strongman to peace talks has lost all meaning. There isn’t any point in inviting Poroshenko, as it really doesn’t solve anything. In the Ukraine, the president is just a figurehead. He’s nothing but a talking head, which carries out others’ orders. If he were present at this meeting, it’d only interfere with the negotiation process. Without him, there are more chances to reach an agreement. Probably, the attitude to the Ukraine changed after the attempted sabotage in the Crimea. Putin officially announced his position in relation to the Ukrainian leadership. He said that no one sees these people as the country’s leaders. He sees them as terrorists. Moreover, as the Russian President said before, he doesn’t conduct any negotiations with terrorists. The current Ukrainian leaders are terrorists; they terrorise their own people. If they want to, Europe can influence the Ukraine, as the Ukraine is fully dependent on European and US aid. As a soldier, I want to hear that the negotiations will end by recognising the Ukrainian government as a terrorist entity… for that will give us the opportunity to go onto the full-scale offensive and liberate the Ukraine from the fascists. I think such an outcome of the meeting would be the most desirable for many of us. All of us in the military are doing our duty. We beat the enemy then, we beat them now, and we will beat them. However, only time will tell us how things in the political arena will develop.
