Today, a Bright Week religious procession dedicated to strengthening the fragile peace in Novorossiya reached Donetsk. With the blessing of Russian Schema-Archimandrite Ilya, the marchers brought a Verneration Cross, with a particle of the True Holy Cross, to the cathedral. Russian Hieromonk Makary, who accompanied the cross, said, “Also, the Veneration Cross has capsules with earth taken with prayer from fields of military glory of Holy Rus and Russia… from Kulikovo Polye, and Ugra and Borodino”. He added that another capsule has earth from Godenovo, “a place with an ancient wonder-working Cross, which appeared 600 years ago in Yaroslavl, shortly before the fall of the (New) Roman Empire. The very appearance of the Godenovo cross shows Holy Rus’ continuity with the Orthodox Roman Empire”. At the same time, he brought a reliquary (in the form of an ancient cross) with relics of saints.

Sergei Polyakov, one of the organisers of the event, Vice President of the international organization antiterrorist unit “Alpha”, said, “This cross procession blessed by Schema-Archimandrite Ilya began in March during the Cross week of Lent. On 14 April, it reached the Kulikovo Polye. In Krasny Kholm, we held a molieben at St Sergei of Radonezh church. Procession participants also visited the famous monastery of St Tikhon of Zadonsk. In Novorossiya, marchers took part in a service at the cathedral in Lugansk, then, they went to Saur-Mogila and served a pannikhida for our fallen soldiers”. The procession ended at Holy Transfiguration Cathedral in Donetsk, they brought in the holy things, and Bishop Varsonofy Vinnichenko of Novoazovsk, the Vicar of the Diocese of Donetsk and Mariupol, served a solemn molieben. Chairman of the DNR Peoples Soviet A Е Purgin also attended the molieben, saying, “Our state gives a special role to Orthodoxy, for it’ll establish and fill the spiritual life of the citizens of our young republic”.

Plotnitsky sez We Have to Win A New Great Patriotic War Today

00 russian soldiers 04. 2014 Novorossiya. 11.10.14



What’s going on now is NOT a “Ukrainian Civil War”… it’s the War of National Liberation of Novorossiya. I believe that the Peoples Republics have crossed a line… they’re NOT fighting for autonomy… they ARE fighting for their independence from a feral, lawless, illegitimate, and ravening Galician Uniate nationalist Nazi state… Banderstan, as many of my friends call it. That’s what at stake and it’s why we diaspora Russian Orthodox MUST stand on the side of the Novorossiya patriots… or we stand on the side of objective evil along with such “anti-communist” creepos as John McCain and Ted Cruz. That’s reality… we MUST attend to it, or it WILL attend to us…



Today, Chairman of the LNR Government I V Plotnitsky said at a meeting of the LNR Public Council that we must win a new Great Patriotic War waged against resurgent fascism, saying, “Victory Day must have a special place not only on the calendar, but also in our hearts. Today, this date is doubly special for us, because in addition to the fact that this is an anniversary year, for the first time, we celebrate Victory Day under wartime conditions. We must win a new Great Patriotic War on our land, in our Republic, as our ancestors did in 1945. Unfortunately, today, we face those who didn’t accept that… we defeated the Nazis, yes, but today they’re reborn and we have to do it all over again. Don’t forget the expectations of Ukrainian VOV veterans, for 9 May 2015 will play a special role in that part of our former country. They’ll watch what happens in our Republic very closely. They’ll ask, ‘Why are we different from them? Why do we celebrate, and how shall we celebrate it?’ We need to meet the expectations of not only our veterans, but also those that live on the other side. They need to know that we understand and appreciate their podvig*. They need to know that we’re firmly convinced of the rightness of what they did [in the war]”.

  • Podvig: Should NEVER be “Englished”… one of the most powerful words in the Russian language. There are literally no English equivalents strong enough. Podvig has overtones of “epic”, “heroic”, “bravery”, “self-sacrifice”, “victory”, “effort”, and “triumph”. It’s best to leave it as is, and admit that English lacks the necessary material to give meaning to this word.

Kiev VOV Veterans said they Wouldn’t Allow Junta to Ban Victory Day


Victory Day in Kiev in happier days



As you read this, reflect on the fact that the Galician Uniate nationalists glorify the convicted murderer S A Bandera and the massacres of the UPA and Nazi collaborators in the VOV, and they support the present terrorist operation in Novorossiya. Such filthiness is truly beyond the pale. Their divorce from reality and lack of simple decency knows no bounds. More on this later…



Ukrainian war veterans think that the new law “On the Condemnation of the Communist and National Socialist (Nazi) Totalitarian Régimes in Ukraine and Banning Promotion of their Symbolism” is insulting… they fear that the government will ban the celebration of Victory Day. However, they’re not going to abandon plans to march on the Khreschatik, even if extremist rightwingers open fire on them.

Nikolai Martynov, the head of the Kiev branch of the Organisation of Ukrainian Veterans said in an interview with the Ukrainian edition of Golos (The Voice) that the “anti-communist law” adopted by the Rada robs the VOV veterans of Victory Day, saying, “The presidential decree abolishing the very idea of the Great Victory of the Great Patriotic War is nothing but a robbery… destroying the 9 May holiday to focus on 8 March… calling it the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation. When V A Yushchenko came to power, he asked us about reconciliation. We said that the leadership of our organisation couldn’t resolve this issue by ourselves… we decided to ask the veterans. We interviewed them, at that time 99.9 percent of them told us that we couldn’t reconcile with them, we couldn’t rehabilitate them… that could never happen, they said. What is there to be reconciled, anyway? We signed a treaty with Nazi Germany… it surrendered”.

Martynov emphasised that the bill is unconstitutional, noting, “We’re against the law and against the decree. We veterans think that it’s unclear how they made such a decision without a referendum. How could they enforce it without having public opinion behind their decision? This “totalitarian communist régime” referred to in the bill defeated Nazi Germany and liberated most of Europe; after the war, the economy recovered and the Ukraine was amongst the top ten leading countries of the world in all respects. The ideology of the communists and that of the fascists were completely contrary to one another”. Martynov also observed that if junta strongman Poroshenko approved this ban, Defenders of the Fatherland Day would be the next to go in the Ukraine, saying, “Before and after the war 23 February was festival dedicated to our holy warriors and to the highest level of patriotism. They chose to move it to 14 October… the date of the founding of the UPA, which stabbed us in the back”.

The website Politnavigator reported that Martynov said that 33,000 VOV vets live in Kiev. In addition, he stated that if the veterans don’t hide communist symbols, there’s a risk of an attack from Right Sector rightwing extremists, “There’s a replica of the Victory Banner In my office… it’s the banner of the veterans. However, there are lowlifes hanging out in the city centre. Therefore, I’m afraid if the Right Sector showed up, these lowlifes would try to strangle me with this banner. We do feel intimidated. We fear provocations from the SBU or some other law enforcement agency”. Retired Colonel Dmitri Stadnyuk, a veteran frontline grunt (фронтовик), stated, “We’d never agree with the idea that we can’t celebrate 9 May… We’ll march openly on the Khreschatik. Let them try to shoot at us! We aren’t afraid. We’ll fight, if it comes to that”.

The Verkhovnaya Rada passed a law on 9 April “On the Condemnation of the Communist and National Socialist (Nazi) Totalitarian Régimes in Ukraine and Banning Promotion of their Symbolism”. The Rada’s website stated that they passed the law “to prevent the recurrence of crimes (sic) of Communist and National Socialist (Nazi) totalitarian régimes, any discrimination based on nationality, social, class, ethnic, racial or other grounds in the future, the restoration of historical and social justice, eliminating the threat of the independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and national security of the Ukraine”. However, the Ukrainian website Vesti (News) pointed up that the true purpose of this “law” is to divert attention from the corruption investigation of junta “Prime Minister” A P Yatsenyuk.

I agree with Colonel Stadnyuk:

We’ll never agree with the idea that we can’t celebrate 9 May… We’ll march openly on the Khreschatik. Let them try to shoot at us! We aren’t afraid. We’ll fight, if it comes to that.

Here’s your choice… you can glorify Nazi collaborators and pro-American terrorists or you can glorify the heroes of the Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army. That’s all that I’m going to say or need to say on that. If you support the US Republican Party, you support those who uphold those who glorify the Nazis and who wish to impose the Unia on an Orthodox land… if you support the commies, you uphold those who stand up for Holy Rus and Holy Orthodoxy… that be the choice, too.

14 April 2015. Elder Iona of Odessa Made Prophecies About Three Easters… Two Have Been Spot-On…

00 Putin. Kirill. Next Year in Kiev. 14.04.15


Elder Iona of Odessa prophesied that the Easter after his death would be an Easter of blood… such was so. He prophesied that the next Easter after that would be an Easter of hunger… such was so. He prophesied that the Easter after that would be an “Easter of Victory”… may God grant us that, in full. May Holy Rus see peace… in all honour and dignity, with all enemies chased away from its borders.
