Shoigu sez Ukie Nationalist Terrorists Attacking Civilians



On Thursday, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said, “‘National Guard’ units, as well as battalions of Right Sector extremists, are attacking civilians. SBU and MVDU elements left in Donetsk and Lugansk are carrying out this crackdown on civilians. According to our data, they’ve deployed a contingent consisting of over 11,000 troops, equipped with automatic weapons. The operation involves about 160 tanks, more than 230 AIFVs and APCs, at least 150 guns and mortars, and many aircraft”.


This is the total of the military power left to the junta (it’s the size of a reinforced motor rifle division, about 9 motor rifle battalions and 4 tank battalions (if full strength). I’d say that most of the standing forces refused to move against their own people (shades of August 1991, no?), so, the junta is using the few Galician troops loyal to them, along with untrained and undisciplined “National Guard” and Right Sector rabble. Understand this… VVP HAS to act if the junta murders civilians. If he doesn’t, he loses all cred in Russia… and he WON’T do that.

By the way, the present junta force is an ad hoc unit, not a formed element that’s been in existence for some time. That is, it’d be militarily useless against a real standing force. That is, the Russian forces would smash it easily. Mind you, there’d be casualties, many of the Galician Uniate terrorists would go to ground, and it’d be the devil itself to root them out (although the eastern population wouldn’t shelter them, save for the miniscule Uniate population). By the way, the junta force is only about 25 percent larger than the forces deployed by Georgia in ’08 in South Ossetia. That is, Russia could wax their ass with a similar force to the one it deployed then, two motorised rifle divisions and two airborne divisions. The opolchenie would guard their LOC and act as local garrisons, as the South Ossetian locals did in ’08, freeing the Russian troops for manoeuvre operations (on the other hand, the junta forces would have to detail some of their units to guard the LOC to Kiev and secure restive towns). Many shortcomings came out after that war… the Minoborony hasn’t been idle in putting them right.

The chess pieces are on the board… however, never forget, they’re not inanimate tokens, they’re human beings. Blood will flow… God do preserve the people of Little Russia and New Russia.

Putin Slams Junta… Junta Pulls Raid in Gorlovka… Opolchenie Capture APCs from Junta Forces

00 Donetsk Peoples Republic. 16.04.14


On Wednesday, the Kremlin press service reported that President Vladimir Putin stated in a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that the sharp aggravation of the Ukrainian crisis was the outcome of the irresponsible policy pursued by Kiev, which ignores the legitimate rights and interests of the country’s Russian-speaking population, saying, “The use of armed forces by the present régime to suppress protest actions by civilians in the southeast Ukraine is inadmissible”. Putin gave his analysis of the current Ukrainian situation at Netanyahu’s request. During the conversation, held on the initiative of the Israeli side, Putin and Netanyahu discussed matters of current importance on bilateral coöperation and the international agenda, including the course of talks on Iran’s nuclear programme. Putin and Netanyahu agreed to hold regular exchanges of views on matters of mutual interest.


The Gorlovka Gorsoviet reported that unidentified pro-junta attackers struck the town, saying that the incident happened “on 15 April after 21.00 local time (11.00 PDT. 14.00 EDT. 19.00 BST. 22.00 MSK. 08.00 16 April AEST). Five masked men forced their way into the social maintenance office building. Eyewitnesses said that the men had guns. They broke down the doors and smashed all the phone sets. Supposedly, the attackers were looking for weapons. The person on duty in the building wasn’t hurt, but she’s stressed”. Cops came to the scene. On 14 April, patriot elements took over the Gorsoviet building, appointed Aleksandr Sapunov as People’s Mayor, and hoisted the flag of the Donetsk People’s Republic.


On Wednesday, patriots continue to control government offices in eight cities of Donetsk Oblast. The flag of the Donetsk People’s Republic waved over the Zhdanovka Gorsoviet building. Patriots stated that local authorities “are on their side.” The Makeyevka Gorsoviet, the Mariupol mayor’s office, the Kramatorsk Gorsoviet, an office in Khartsyzsk, a police building in Gorlovka, and the Gorsoviet and police building in Yenakiyevo remain in patriot hands. Police and SBU buildings remain occupied by patriots in Slavyansk. The Donetsk People’s Republic Opolchenie placed seven checkpoints in the city.


On Wednesday, patriot Opolchenie seized six Ukrainian Army armoured vehicles that entered Kramatorsk in Donetsk Oblast as part of a task force to conduct an “anti-terrorist operation” (sic). The Opolchenie surrounded the vehicles and blocked their movement. Then, they disarmed the troops and drove the APCs towards Ivanovka.
