Poroshenko More Loser than Winner in Rada Horse-Race

00 electoral fraud, 27.10.14

______________________________

On Sunday, Oleg Ignatov, a deputy director general of the Russian Centre for Political Situational Analysis, said that first exit poll results after the early parliamentary elections in the Ukraine show that junta strongman P A Poroshenko is more a loser than a winner. Ignatov said, “If final results are close to those of the exit polls, the Ukrainian President will have little chance to form a coalition based on his party. I’d remind you that, towards the end of the campaign, Poroshenko claimed that he’d be able to form a pro-presidential coalition in the Verkhovnaya Rada and finally have a person from his team, probably Deputy Prime Minister V В Groisman, as Prime Minister. However, in the end, we see that the People’s Front of A V Turchinov and A P Yatsenyuk won more votes than expected. Therefore, it looks like Yatsenyuk will continue as prime minister, and conduct a policy independent from the president. Whereas, until now, Poroshenko favoured a less aggressive format towards relations with Russia and [Novorossiya], now, it’d be next to impossible for him, for he’d have to reckon with advocates of a harsher policy, the more so as other pro-war parties, such as Samopomoshch, the Radical Party, and Svoboda, won much support”.

Earlier Sunday, A K Pushkov, the chairman of the international committee of the RF Gosduma, wrote on his Twitter account, “It’s already clear that the election won’t trigger any changes in the power structures, but the authorities can’t do anything new… they have no financial resources. The Ukraine doesn’t have European integration ahead, but a complete loss of independence for the pittance that the USA and the EU would throw to it. The Ukraine’s future is miserable”.

According to results from national and international exit polls and a poll conducted by Inter TV, the Poroshenko Bloc won 22-23 percent of the vote. The People’s Front of Yatsenyuk and Turdchinov was next with 19.7-21.8 percent. Following were Samopomoshch (Self-Reliance) of Lvov Mayor A I Sadovy (11-14.2 percent), Yu A Boiko‘s Opposition Bloc (7/8-9.9 percent), O V Lyashko‘s Radical Party (about 6.5 percent), O Ya Tyagnibok‘s Svoboda (5.8-6.3 percent), and Yu V Timoshenko‘s Fatherland Front (5.6 percent). Other parties, including the radical Right Sector and the KPU, failed to overcome the five-percent barrier to win seats in the Rada.

Editor:

Correspondents told me that this election was as crooked as any local election held in the USA! Firstly, many ballots lacked communist candidates. Secondly, in many places away from the prying eyes of the Western media, the marking of ballots took place in public, so, there was crass voter coercion. Thirdly, there was no balloting in the DNR and LNR… even in most places under Uniate junta occupation. Regions wasn’t even on the ballot due to violence from Uniate nationalist nutters. Lastly, everyone believes that massive ballot-stuffing took place. In short, this was GIGO all round… but the USA and EU will brandish it as their justification for supporting the fascist neo-Nazi Uniate junta, just as they support the neo-Nazi racists in the Baltic States.

By the way… Clan Balogh didn’t help Poroshenko as ballot-box-stuffers and voter intimidators this time around. Could that be why Poroshenko did so “poorly?” Perspirin’ minds wanna know…

One last thing… the USA is putting extreme pressure on the Magyars. Are they getting to bale out of the US-led sanctions charade? It’s a possibility…

Russian Leftists Blast Kiev Plans to Ban KPU

00 Gennady Zyuganov. Pyotr Simonenko. KPRF. 02.03.13

______________________________

On Wednesday, Gennady Zyuganov, the First Secretary of the KPRF, at a roundtable in the RF Gosduma, condemned plans by junta boss Turchinov to ban the KPU, “All fascist régimes in the world started their activities with a ban on Communist parties. Such threats are a threat to all leftist popular and patriotic forces”. Zyuganov said that the KPRF prepared a draft motion against the attempts of the junta to ban the KPU, and would submit it to the Gosduma in the near future. He added, “The suggestion that anything would settle there after 25 May is just an illusion. At present, there are no conditions in the Ukraine for holding normal elections”. Zyuganov demanded that the Russian authorities help the patriot elements in the former southeastern Ukraine, “No one’s demanding that we send in troops, but we have a right to support our friends and brothers. It’s our duty to express our common will and do everything to help the Ukrainian people get rid of a fascist junta that’s trying to establish itself with American guidance”. The centre-left Fair Russia party backed the initiative. Fair Russia leader Sergey Mironov said, “We unconditionally support the motion in support of the KPU, although our approaches to ideology might differ, a ban on a political parliamentary party in any country is nonsense, and we shouldn’t allow it”.

On Monday, junta boss Aleksandr Turchinov asked the Justice Ministry to ban the KPU Party for its alleged involvement in patriot movements in the former Donetsk and Lugansk Oblasts that, in Turchinov’s view, threatened the Ukraine’s territorial integrity and national security. Turchinov claimed in a letter to the Justice Minister that the communists’ policies have an openly anti-constitutional character {this, coming from a putschist and the main enabler of the Bushies’ torture programme in the Ukraine: editor}. In mid-May, Pyotr Simonenko, the leader of the KPU, said that the junta was killing peaceful civilians in the southeast and spreading lies about the real situation. Simonenko called on Kiev to stop its “anti-terrorist operation (sic), as it’s turned into a terrorist operation against its own people”. On Wednesday, Sergei Naryshkin, Chairman of the RF Gosduma, said that Simonenko had planned to attend the roundtable in Russia, but couldn’t do so because of threats to his personal safety made in the Ukraine. Naryshkin added that Simonenko had to withdraw from the Ukrainian presidential race for the same reason.

Editor:

Turchinov has brass balls… he took power in a putsch, helped the Bushies carry out torture in the Ukraine, destroyed many of the SBU’s records to hide evidence of American war crimes, and was one of the most corrupt cronies of Darlin’ Yuliya… he has the chutzpah to call the KPU “openly anti-constitutional”… I’m going to check myself into a rubber room for a LOOONG rest if that’s true. Note well that the US government and the Western media support this worthless POS. If shitbirds of a feather flock together…

More Buildings Seized in Lugansk… Another Candidate Withdraws… Maidan Toughs Attack Cabinet of Ministers Building

00 Lugansk. 30.04.14

______________________________

Local media said that patriot elements in Lugansk occupied the Oblsoviet building. Reports indicated that oblast officials are no longer on the premises. The patriots chanted the word “Referendum”, reiterating their demand for a loose Ukrainian federation. An ultimatum to fulfil the demands of the local population to the Kiev junta expired at 14.00 local time (04.00 PDT. 07.00 EDT. 12.00 BST. 15.00 MSK. 21.00 AEST) Tuesday. In line with earlier warnings, patriot elements now consider all state organs affiliated with the junta to be anti-people and criminal.

******

On Tuesday, a spokesman for Oleg Tsaryov said that he withdrew from the Ukrainian presidential race. At a meeting of the coordinating council of the Southeastern Public Movement, Tsaryov said, “I believe that the self-appointed central authorities in Kiev are working to split the country, but the Ukrainian regions can make real steps to save it. Maintaining contacts and speaking to each other, bypassing the puppet Kiev authorities, we can reach a better understanding. However, the Kiev authorities, violating all democratic norms, stripped me of this possibility. I took real risks to my life to come to Kiev to address an all-Ukraine audience, and they turned down my request to take part in televised debates on UT-1 television channel with a TV link-up. Therefore, I’ve decided to withdraw from the election, since my candidacy is irrelevant under such conditions. We’ll look for other information channels and ways to bring our ideas and positions to people in the central and western Ukraine. I call on all other candidates… Pyotr Simonenko, Mikhail Dobkin, Sergei Tigipko, Rinat Kuzmin, and all others whose supporters live in the southeastern regions… to withdraw from the election. We should boycott these elections, which are being held on the threshold of a civil war!”

Editor:

Fascist thugs beat up Tsaryov as he was leaving a TV debate in Kiev and the junta threatened legal action against him. That’s proof, even for the starry-eyed that the junta’s illegitimate and indecent. Do note that the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church and the so-called “Ukrainian Orthodox” back them without reservation. This shows them enemies of the truth… don’t trust them nor mingle with them unless necessary. They’re enemies of Holy Rus and you only aid them and cheer them if you associate with them.

On Tuesday, the Party of Regions said that it’d soon decide whether to withdraw its candidate for Ukrainian president, Mikhail Dobkin, from the election. Dobkin said, “As of today, I and my comrades in the Party of Regions have proof that a certain group of extremists, well-organised and paid, is following me on my trips as a presidential candidate about various regions. They have one goal… not to let me meet with voters and actually foil the canvassing campaign. Their task is to frustrate the elections. They are sparing no effort to force one of the presidential candidates withdraw from the elections. Obviously, they mean it to hinder my election campaign. One of the candidates is calling the shots, to make other candidates to withdraw from the race, to frustrate these elections to postpone or even thwart them. I think that they’re trying to muddle the current complicated situation in our country even further. However, to withdraw from the election means to play into the hands of those who don’t want stability in our country. We’ll look at the situation, check every possible option and its consequences, but we reserve the right to take any decision”.

******

On Tuesday, President Vladimir Putin told journalists, “I think that what’s happening there now shows us who really managed the process from the start. However, at first, the USA preferred to stay in the background. Today, the USA is in the foreground of those resolving the Ukrainian crisis, which shows that the USA led this process from the start, but only displayed itself as the leader of this entire process now. At first, the interests of the USA and its European partners coincided because the EU wanted to conclude an [association] agreement with the Ukraine on terms that I believe were unprofitable for the Ukraine. The previous government in Kiev tried to fight it, but the Western community followed another scenario, implementing a military scenario, an anti-constitutional coup, an armed seizure of power. The events’ initiators didn’t calculate what it could lead to. Although many people in the Ukraine ‘liked’ such a coup, many [people] didn’t like it; they disagreed with that form of régime change. There’s nothing democratic in that”.

“The government of the Russian Federation has already proposed some retaliatory steps, but I think there’s no need for them yet. However, if [sanctions] continue, of course, we’d have to think about whom we’d allow to work in the Russian Federation, in key branches of Russia’s economy, including energy. We’d rather not like to resort to some steps, to retaliatory measures; I hope there’d be no need for them. We should take people into account; we should respect their legal rights”.

Late Tuesday night, footage from Ukrainian TV showed a massive brawl between so-called “Maidan Self-Defence” members and Patrioty Ukrainy rightwingers broke out on the Maidan in downtown Kiev. Eyewitnesses said that nationalists with flaming torches gathered by the Kiev Gorsoviet building and started moving in a column towards the Maidan. The self-defence activists stopped the column near the barricades in front of the Central Post Office. They set tyres on fire, blocking passage along the Kreshchatik towards the Maidan turned for some time. Passers-by had to use pedestrian tunnels under the street. At the time of reporting, there was no information about any injuries.

Editor:

The police didn’t intervene in this. Kiev is a lawless anarchic libertarian hell. Reflect on this… the Republican Party wants that in the USA… untrammelled oligarchs ruling by means of violent street gangs. That’s the Koch brothers’ wet dream… that’s what you support when you listen to Fox News or to Rush Limbaugh.

______________________________

On Tuesday, in Lugansk, patriots occupied the GU MVDU building and the nearby city police building. Witnesses reported from the scene that they heard bursts of gunfire, but no one knows who fired them. In both buildings, observers saw many smashed windows, but no one was hurt. Patriots formed a cordon through which MVDU personnel had to pass unarmed. However, the police didn’t leave their building for several hours. They used tear gas. Earlier in the day, patriots in Lugansk occupied the buildings of the Oblsoviet and the Oblast Genprokuratura.

On Tuesday, French General Jean-Paul Paloméros, the NATO Supreme Allied Commander Transformation, told ITAR-TASS in an interview, “NATO isn’t considering providing direct military aid to the Ukraine. The Alliance has no commitments to the Ukraine in this respect, and this is clear. However, it’s never too early to begin to support one’s partners, as in rendering assistance in training armed forces and consultations. Yet, it’s necessary to give support to NATO members. In so doing, we must show flexibility and mobility. This refers to our properly distributing our efforts depending on the real situation and working out respective packages of measures”.

Editor:

NATO’s saying “sayonara” to the junta. It won’t go to war over the Ukraine. No way, no how. I guess that when the junta put US-supplied MREs for the forces up for sale on the internet, it tipped people off that the junta’s not on the up and square. No one trusts the junta and no one’s giving it any cash.

On Tuesday, at a meeting of the UN Security Council, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said, “Encouraged by its Western ‘friends’, the Kiev régime doggedly pushes the country towards a catastrophe. It’s clear from their statements and actions that they aren’t going to fulfil the agreements reached at Geneva on 17 April. Just several days after the meeting, they resumed their so-called ‘anti-terrorist’ operation, which was, in essence, a punitive operation. They sent some 15,000 troops, tanks, artillery, planes, and Right Sector units to the southeast Ukraine”.

******

Junta chieftain Aleksandr Turchinov claimed at a meeting of oblast administration heads that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are at full combat readiness because of the threat from Russia (sic). He claimed, “We don’t control the situation in Donetsk and in Donetsk Oblast. I say frankly that security agencies aren’t able to control the situation in Donetsk and Lugansk Oblasts. There were several attempts to destabilise Kharkov, Odessa, Kherson, Nikolayev, and Zaporozhe Oblasts. Local administrations had to tighten security for the May holidays”.

On Tuesday, Turchinov demanded that so-called “Interior Minister” Arseny Avakov dismiss all heads of MVDU subordinate agencies in Lugansk and Donetsk Oblasts. He added, “We’ll fire all security personnel who won’t fulfil their professional duties. There’s no other way but to carry out a complete renewal of the police and SBU in the eastern regions”.

Editor:

“If you don’t listen to me, I’ll kill you!” Well, no one is listening to Turchinov’s rants. Do you need proof that the cops have gone over to the patriot side? The patriots are getting weapons from MVDU and armed forces stores… with access given by the troops and cops. When cops switch sides, that’s serious. The junta’s on its last legs, for sure.

Artyom Sychyov, deputy head of the Main Department For Security and Information Protection of the Russian Central Bank, told ITAR-TASS, “There is risk that companies on the sanctions list may lose technical support, and, at worst, the right to use software licences of foreign, as a rule, American, developers. A possible revocation of software licences depends on the terms of a specific contract; as for technical support, despite the fact that support in Russia comes, as a rule, from Russian system integrators, they may have problems with updating software, including updates critical from the viewpoint of information security”. On Wednesday, Gazety.ru reported that Microsoft, Oracle, Symantec, and Hewlett-Packard joined the American sanctions and are preparing for switching off software for companies on the sanctions list.

Editor:

This would work against a penny-ante state, but not against Russia. Russia has a world-class IT industry, and so does China (Russia’s ally). Any American move would lead to Russian countermoves… after all, Russia won the cyberwar at the time of the all-Crimea referendum, disrupting NATO networks when NATO tried to fuck up the Russian networks. All that Putin will do is to contract things out to Kaspersky ZAO. This is a mere fart in a hurricane.

******

On Wednesday, Andrei Magera, the head of the Ukrainian Central Elections Commission (CEC) stated, “[A referendum] is impossible from an organisational point of view. They should’ve thought of it earlier. It is impossible to organise such events. As for 11 May local referendum proposed by Donetsk and Lugansk Oblasts, this is illegitimate, because this contradicts the Ukrainian Constitution. We could hold a referendum on 15 June, the day for a possible presidential runoff, if the Rada approves it”.

Editor:

As for “thinking of it earlier”, the junta has only had two months to prepare their sham election… everything that Magera says against the referendum goes as much for the so-called Hudson County-type election on 25 May (that is, a fixed race with no surprises). This is a crock of shit… now, the junta’s trying to backtrack. All this will do is to piss people off even more. The junta’s flailing in the water, issuing contradictory and downright phantasmagorical statements. In fact, what they’re doing guarantees that the locals will overwhelmingly vote for Russia… and the junta can’t stop them. THIS is what Langley wants… is Potapov still working for them? If so, it shows him to be a traitor to the Orthosphere and that the Church should give him the boot.

On Wednesday, the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs declared the naval attaché of the Russian embassy in the Ukraine persona non grata, saying, “The SBU detained the diplomat on 30 April on the spot of his espionage action as a result of a successful counter-intelligence operation. We expect that he will leave the Ukraine shortly”.

Editor:

This smells like Galician goofball fun n’ games. The DUMBEST thing to do now is to accuse Russian diplomats of spying… for Russia could expel the Ukrainian Embassy from Moscow, leaving the junta with no information. Russia knows more about Kiev than the Ukraine knows about Moscow… the SVR is better organised than its Ukrainian analogue is. As I said, this smells like dumbass Galician posturing.

Late night Wednesday, several dozen people armed with bats, metal rods, and batons gathered in front of the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers building. They threw grenades into the courtyard of the building at several policemen. It wasn’t exactly clear what brought them there, but some sources said that mob were from the so-called Maidan Self-Defence, who supported students pressing for a meeting with junta so-called “Education Minister” Sergei Kvit. A brawl broke out between the Maidan Self-Defence and “National Guard” thugs. Other sources said that about 30 Maidan Self-Defence terrorists demanded the dismissal of Valery Geletei, the head of the State Guard Department, as they thought his order to use force against an earlier meeting involving the Maidan Self-Defence was unlawful. They told UNN that Geletei obstructed attempts by activists to get appointments with cabinet members. To draw attention to themselves, the terrorists threw grenades against the Cabinet building’s walls.

Editor:

This is “law and order” in Kiev… is it any wonder that the cops side with the anti-junta patriots when possible? Besides, no cop likes swaggering vigilantes… that’s what the so-called “National Guard” is. It takes training and guts to be a real cop, to keep the peace whilst keeping your cool. Real cops don’t always reach for their gun (the paperwork involved is horrendous)… they have the know-how to defuse most situations (in some cases, violence is necessary).

Natalya Korolevskaya, the former Ukrainian Minister for Social Issues, decided to withdraw from the presidential race, saying, “I’ve taken a very important decision. Tomorrow, on the Day of Peace and Labour (1 May), I’ll explain my decision to the people”. Korolevskaya’s political party, “Forward Ukraine”, didn’t confirm its leader’s decision. She isn’t the first candidate to withdraw from the controversial race. Somewhat earlier, Oleg Tsaryov, a leader of antifascist forces who became the target of assaults by radicals on several occasions recently, made public his decision to pull out of the campaign.

******

Vasili Malayev, a spokesman for the Rostov Oblast FSB Border Guard told ITAR-TASS that Ukrainian border guards beat up two Russians and a Belarusian on the Russian border in Rostov Oblast, the incident took place at a Ukrainian border checkpoint at Dolzhansky (called Novoshakhtinsk on the Russian side). A Russian citizen wanted to go to Lugansk to visit his girlfriend along with a friend. At the railway station, they met a Belarusian citizen returning home from Sochi. He planned to go home using a shorter route… through the Ukraine. They decided to hire a taxicab. Malayev said, “These citizens said that after they crossed the Ukrainian border, a group of border guards suddenly appeared, pushed them into a puddle, and started to beat them at gunpoint. They saw that the Belarusian citizen had climbing gear… they thought that it was subversive equipment. The injured persons said that the Ukrainian border guards used force against them during interrogation. They handed them deportation orders under the pretext that they failed to confirm their place of stay. Russian border guards provided them all needed assistance and helped them to get to Rostov-on-Don. The travellers had to change their route. They can’t enter the Ukraine at all for three years”.

Editor:

This smells like a shakedown by crooked cops combined with asinine conclusions reached by dumb Galician hicks. They probably didn’t get the bribe that they expected, so, they beat up the passengers and driver; then, some bright boy found the climbing gear. This Einstein then jumped to an assumption, which led to a more severe beating. In Russia, the cops are more civilised… they’d take a 1,000 Rouble (28 USD. 31 CAD. 30 AUD. 20 Euros. 17 UK Pounds) bribe and let ‘em on their way. The Ukraine is a Wild West shoot-em-up with no rules… that’s why it and the junta are falling apart.

******

Overnight on Thursday, a statement on the MVDU official website claimed that junta forces took a patriot checkpoint near Krasnoarmeisk (Donetsk Oblast), “No one was hurt during the storming of the checkpoint”. Junta forces dragged off all at the checkpoint to imprisonment in Dnepropetrovsk Oblast and are launching a “criminal case” against them {scorning the Geneva agreement, by the way: editor}.

Editor:

So much for the junta’s word! This is only going to stiffen the resolve of the patriots. This smells like a Right Sector provocation… Yarosh is in Dnepropetrovsk, and he’s demanding violence against the patriots. The junta’s not in control and the situation gets murkier (yes, it can) and no one has any bloody idea of what end is up (no, no one does know anything, including Langley).

Fox News Blubbers Over Amerikantsy Puppet Junta in Kiev

00 Fox News and Russia. 30.04.14.

______________________________

Read this. This is proof, even for the slow learners, that Fox News is nothing but a Langley dezinformatsiya outlet. They take Turchinov, the junta chieftain, a bandit pakhan, at face value. They don’t report the situation objectively or critically.

To put it plainly, the junta has lost control of large swathes of the country, it’s Navy chief went over to the Russians, armed neo-Nazi bands roam the streets unhindered, and its armed forces/cops are going over to the side of the patriot elements in the southeast. Turchinov may as well pack his bags and go to Pat Robertson at Liberty University to beg for a job. If things continue at this rate, the present ramshackle Kiev junta could fall as early as Victory Day, and it won’t last much past the referendum in the southeast.

There are three possible scenarios. Firstly, Yuliya could tire of using puppets and take over the reins openly (now, she’s the main puppeteer for the Americans). I view this as the most probable. Turchinov, Yatsenyuk, and Avakov are bumblers, whose only qualification is that they’re loyal thieves in service to the Uncrowned Thief-in-Law of the Ukraine, Darlin’ Yuliya. This would spark off a shooting war and swift secession of New Russia and parts of Little Russia. Secondly, the junta could collapse and the Russians (and the Poles, Romanians, and Magyars) would pick up the pieces. I find this the least probable (even though it’d be the least bloody). Thirdly, the so-called election would occur in the Rump Ukraine on 25 May, the Americans would install their man, Candy King Porsoshenko as their satrap, which would spark an immediate civil war. What that would lead to and end as, no one knows, least of all, me.

Fox News is no journalistic outlet… but then again, was it ever such? CNN is no better; it’s just the other side of the same debased and battered coin. The rollercoaster ride continues…
