29 March 2015. “Thank You, America, for this Hummer!”

00 captured HUMMER. Ukraine. Novorossiya. 29.03.15

______________________________

The image shows Cossack commander Sergei Kozitsyn, a patriot leader in the VSN in Novorossiya, displaying his new Humvee command vehicle, captured from junta forces in Debaltsevo. There is bootless talk of American “lethal aid” to the junta forces. Firstly, the USA can’t send NATO-standard ordnance to the junta… all of its present equipment is Sov-standard; if it sent NATO-standard matériel, it’d create a logistics nightmare. Things are bollixed up enough in the junta-misruled Ukraine… to have two separate logistics streams running at the same time is an invitation to disaster. To speak plainly, that makes a classic snafu of sending NATO-standard munitions to a unit using Sov-standard ordnance (or vice versa) ridiculously probable (the junta forces are FUBAR enough without such foolishness). Frankly, the level of C3I* in the junta forces is too low to gamble with such. Factor in the fact that many of the prewar cadre of the Ukrainian forces rallied to Russia and that many of the rest were “lustrated”… well, you can see where I’m going. In the best of situations, it’s looking for trouble… Banderstan is a Jabberwockian state full of more nuts than a PayDay bar. It’d be bollocks on stilts…

  • C3I: Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence

By the way, the machine gun on the cupola is a Sov-standard DShK… it means that the junta has enough people left with brains to remove the NATO-standard GPMG, as it’d be almost impossible to keep it supplied with sufficient ammunition. Besides that, to fire the weapon, a crewman has to expose themselves… it isn’t in an enclosed mounting. Also, note that there are no slits in the armoured visors over the windscreen. That is, the visors must always be in the “up” position when on the move. This vehicle isn’t a combat vehicle… the “armour” is only sufficient to keep out rifle-calibre rounds… a heavy MG, autocannon, or RPG could easily defeat this. On top of all that, the additional weight of the improvised armour package puts strain on the engine, drivetrain, and suspension. In short, this is a battle-taxi, nothing more.

29 March 2015. Thank You for the Victory! Uphold the Values of the Anti-Hitler Coalition, NOT the Values of the Nazi Monsters!

00 the anti-hitler coalition was no joke. american wwii veteran. 29.03.15

______________________________

The USA wasn’t always run by a set of greedy neocon jackals… in World War II, the excesses of the Nazis disgusted all decent people. We hung Nazi leaders for planning and waging aggressive war and for torturing people in secret prisons. That does sound familiar, doesn’t it? It’s time for America to recapture the New Deal spirit and cleanse itself of Neo-Nazi neocon evil. If we hung Wilhelm Frick and Alfred Jodl, then, it stands to reason that Petraeus, Scalia, Cheney, and Cruz all merit the noose, too (that isn’t a threat… it’s a statement of fact… they did what the Nürnberg defendants did, after all). They’ll all die in bed… but evil is evil. We can have the neocon vision or we can have the New Deal vision… it’s up to us.

Remember those who came before us and never forget what they endured to smash Hitler and his evil. Don’t support the heirs of the Nazis today. Support the free people of Novorossiya… it’s your duty before God and man…

Nothing is forgotten… No one is forgotten!

They all had faces… They all had names…

They cleansed the earth of a horrid evil…

THANK YOU!

News on LNR Pensions

This seems cut-and-dried, not “newsy” at all. However, this is MORE important than battle news or news of this-or-that politician… it shows that Novorossiya is well on the way to creating the proper administrative apparat to run a modern state. It means that Novorossiya has broken definitively with the “Ukrainian” administrative apparat. Novorossiya is creating all the government structures to have an apparat to govern, maintain, defend, and sustain a viable modern state. There’s no longer any chance of reintegrating the LNR and DNR into any notional “Ukraine”.

In its modest and unassuming way, this is a de facto Declaration of Independence. The Ukraine IS dead… it’s a headless chicken prancing about the barnyard scattering blood and gore. May the time of its actual fall be soon. The peoples of Novorossiya, Malorossiya, Podkarpatskaya, Galicia, and Bukovina deserve nothing less.

Tatyana Vasilyeva, Acting Chairman of the LNR Pension Fund announced at a meeting the readiness of the LNR State Bank to make the payments and multi-currency transactions necessary to allow the LNR pension fund plans to pay pensions to retirees on the scale provided for in the prewar period. She said, “Today, we want to stabilise pensions, from the current month. At this point, we’re trying return to the pension rates in place before the war. Normally, on the 4th and 25th of the month, people knew that their money was in the bank or in the mail. We’re committed to continue that”. She noted that there might be glitches during the first month, admitting, “During the first month, I think that due to the fact that people didn’t get their pensions for some time, there may be some failures. However, we plan to have payments back online by next month”.

At a meeting today, Svetlana Malakhova, LNR Minister of Labour and Social Policy, and Tatyana Vasilyeva, Acting Chairman of the LNR Pension Fund stated that all pensioners must receive their pensions personally, there’ll be no payment by proxy. Vasilyeva said, “As there’s a difficult situation in the Republic, we can’t allow payments by proxy. If a person, for whatever reason, doesn’t receive their pension on time, they’d be able to get it disbursed to them during the next payment period. No one will lose any pension money”.

In turn, Malakhova said that the Ministry of Labour would coöperate with the Pension Fund in all measures to implement social benefits through the branches of the LNR State Bank. She pointed up that they’d pay social benefits in local currency, which means that pension payments will be in Roubles, saying, “we’ll pay pensions according to the rates set by prewar Ukrainian law. We’d use the rate set by the LNR Council of Ministers… 2 Roubles per 1 Grivnya. Pensioners and those receiving social benefits must apply in person at a bank branch with a passport and an identification code. In order to initially open an account, they’d also have to provide copies”.

Vasilieva noted, “During Stage 4 [of our work] we prepared an electronic database of all LNR pensioners. We shared this data with the State Bank, to ease preliminary work of opening accounts, to shorten the path between us (pension fund), the bank, and retirees, so that they could receive their pensions”. She said that statements would have multiple columns for pensioners’ convenience, “One column will show the value in Grivnya, as a reminder that the pension is the same as before. The second column will show the Grivnya to Roubles conversion. Another column is where a pensioner would sign and date the statement upon receiving their pension”. Vasilieva went on to say that many pensioners would receive their pensions at the bank, but some receive theirs via the mail, “We have homebound and disabled recipients. One group is disabled people under constant care, who aren’t able to go to the bank. Another group are invalids of the Great Patriotic War… because of old age, they just aren’t able to get to the bank. Then, there are those over 75-years-old. We’d organise delivery of these people’s pensions to their homes through the mail. They’d receive the same kind of statement as those received at the bank… with the value of the pension in both Grivnya and Roubles”.

More than 90 Percent of LNR Residents Believe that the Ukrainian Economic Blockade Only Consolidates Their Independence

00 lugansk. 15.09.14

An opinion poll in the LNR found that 93.7 percent of respondents believe that the economic blockade consolidates independence amongst Donbass residents and alienates them from the Ukraine, which continues to wage aggressive war against its own former citizens. The “Special Status” Centre for Sociological Research ran this study from 9 to 14 March. It interviewed 1,675 people by phone in Lugansk, Alchevsk, Krasnodon, Rovenky, Bryanka, Krasny Luch, Antratsite, Sverdlovsk, and Stakhanov. The margin of error is about +/-3.2 percent. Almost all respondents (93.7 percent) said that the junta’s policy of conducting an economic and social blockade against the People’s Republics “made the people of the Donbass even more determined and alienated them from the Ukraine.” Only 2.8 percent of respondents think that the blockade “weakens the will of the resistance and makes the Donbass want to return to the Ukraine”. 79.3 percent of respondents described the present invasion of Novorossiya by the junta as “military aggression against its former citizens”, only 13.8 percent still view themselves as Ukrainian citizens. According to sociologists, these results suggest, “in the eyes of LNR residents, the military conflict in the Donbas is explicitly considered as a civil war”. Almost half (43.5%) of LNR residents praised the work of the authorities in rebuilding the economy and infrastructure of the Republic, calling it “unequivocally positive” and “rather positive”. Only a third of the respondents criticised the LNR leadership’s efforts.

I believe that with the latest truce violations, the LNR and DNR “crossed the Rubicon”… they no longer consider themselves a part of the Ukrainian state, nor do they consider themselves “Ukrainian” (it’s an open question whether any Donbass resident actually did so, by the way). The toddler Anglos, in a fit of juvenile pique, destroyed what they DID have… a neutral Ukrainian state as a buffer against Russia. In their sheer hubris and arrogance, the Anglo Americans attempted to seize the Ukraine as a base against Russia, as a base in their drive for world hegemony. The Anglos learned none of the lessons of 2008… the former Soviet space is a “bridge too far” for them… it’s “imperial overreach”. That is, the Americans don’t have the available power to pull off this machination and scheme.

If you notice, all of their actions since World War II have been within easy reach of the World Ocean… that was true in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Serbia, Libya, and Syria. However, South Ossetia had no connections to the World Ocean and the Ukraine only has peripheral links to it, thus negating Anglo American seapower, the only real field of superiority that they have. In Russia, the army is the main defender of the state, all other services support it… in the USA, the Navy is the main defender of the state as the USA’s eastern and western borders lie on the World Ocean (the northern border is with a friendly neighbour of the same culture, its southern border is held by a weak neighbour). That is, in the USA, the army doesn’t have to be as good as the Russian army is… if the Russian army fails, the state collapses. If the American army fails, the navy evacuates it and takes it back to a homeland defended by wide ocean barriers.

America did NOT learn its lesson in South Ossetia. Shall it learn its lesson now? God alone knows… and He didn’t tell me what He knows. It all hangs in the balance…
