Poroshenko Leads the Ukraine to Destruction… The War in the Donbass Drags On

00 Bloody Pyotr. P A Poroshenko. 01.07.14


P A Poroshenko’s statement before the Verkhovnaya Rada, the “President’s Address to Parliament”, didn’t have any constructive content nor any sign that the situation in the Ukraine would stabilise. The only thing that one can say with confidence is that Poroshenko’s leadership would continue the process of devastation in the country. From his message, I concluded that Poroshenko is leading the country towards ruin. I’d call everything that he offered in his annual programme a canard… it’s all corruption and deception. He really doesn’t understand what he says. I’m sure that the Kiev authorities don’t have any plans for a peaceful settlement in the Donbass. This was very noticeable from Poroshenko’s speech. I can tell you one thing, the war in the Donbass will continue; they won’t implement the Minsk agreement. On the first and second of September, there was no shooting, but after that, the shooting resumed. The words of Poroshenko that he loves the Donbass, that he loves its people, that he loves the Ukraine… one can only say that one can’t trust Poroshenko. He’s the puppet of the USA. If you look at his latest message, [the USA] really runs the country.

In spite of the fact that Poroshenko admitted that the Ukraine lost 15 billion USD (971.62 billion Roubles. 100.45 billion Renminbi. 1.004 trillion INR. 19.6 billion CAD. 19.9 billion AUD. 13.36 billion Euros. 11.31 billion UK Pounds) from breaking ties with Russia, he didn’t draw the necessary and appropriate conclusions. Poroshenko doesn’t seem to know that to save the Ukraine he has to restore these links, primarily, economic coöperation. He should emulate Erdoğan, who very well understood what he had to do in re the Russian Federation, but Poroshenko doesn’t appear to be in a hurry. Therefore, he said “a” instead of “b”… he hit Russia with new accusations of “assault” and “aggression”. His “foreign partners” control Poroshenko. That’s why he does all these things and betrays us. He acts like a sick man. According to him, who ruined everything? Of course, it was Russia. However, why has Russia imposed sanctions? Poroshenko didn’t explain why this all happened. If you look at all of his statement, he acknowledged that he’s a fool, a fool indeed, and once again a fool.

In the Donbass, everyone knows the aggressive ambitions of Poroshenko. The people and the governments in the LNR and DNR understand that the Ukrainian plans and peace are incompatible. Despite all the difficulties facing the Peoples Republics, they’re ready to repel any aggression from Kiev.

75th Anniversary of the Beginning of the Siege of Leningrad



Today marked 75 years since the beginning of the siege of Leningrad by the fascists during the Great Patriotic War. The blockade lasted 872 days (from 8 September 1941 to 27 January 1944) and became one of the most tragic pages in the history of the Second World War. To memorialise this momentous occasion, we prepared a thematic collection:

10 September 2016. They All Had Faces; They All Had Names


Farewell, my commander! Farewell, my friend! There are no words to express my pain. I stifle my tears; you were always there, you were a friend! When you left us, you weren’t a loser. You fought courageously for our Rodina. Bow before Major-General Aleksandr Sergeyevich Nemogai, Commander of the Kalmius Spetsnaz Brigade and Hero of the DNR!

Вечная память!

10 September 2016. Some of My Favourite Things… P G Lisitian Sings “Ya Vas Lyublyu” from “Pikovaya Dama”




An aria from La Traviata… Joe Green in Russian!


Here’s a patriotic song in a more popular vein… Moya rodina (My Motherland)


P G Lisitian (Peoples Artist of the USSR) came from a humble working-class family… in the money-grubbing West, he would’ve got nowhere. In the USSR, he found an outlet for his talent. That’s something that the righties never talk about… how the Sovs sincerely sought out talent of all sorts (artistic, scientific, and athletic) amongst all classes and how they gave people a chance to develop their skills. Lisitian was a leading soloist at the Bolshoi (officially, the State Academic Bolshoi Theatre of Russia (GABT Rossii)) from 1940 to 1966; he taught at conservatoire for many years afterward (he died in 2004, in his 93rd year). Ya vas lyublyu from Tchaikovsky’s Pikovaya Dama (The Queen of Spades) has to the be the most famous aria in Russian opera… need I mention that Pavel Gerasimovich was a mentor of D A Khvorostovsky? Many believe his interpretation to be the best yet… I agree.
