The Rule of Bullets and Clubs

00 Right Sector Thugs in Kiev. 06.04.14


The Revolution has begun…. but the Revolution hasn’t ended, as the famous song has it. Unfortunately, the lyrics of songs and real life are a little bit different. People know that from their experience, especially, those who live in the now very “independent” Ukraine. It seems that a bitter moment of reckoning came for the politically naïve, who gaped at the gutted residence of President Yanukovich, who walked on rich carpets lit by gold candlesticks. It turns out that thousands of militants aren’t only in special camps, but these “hot shots” aren’t in a hurry to resign the power and respect that they have through their weapons and willingness to use them. They’re in no hurry to leave, after driving a thirst for régime change and leading the crowd.

You see, having a weapon confers power. Sashko Bily demonstrated this when he brandished an avtomat in the faces of People’s Deputies. Then, he shot himself in the heart with an avtomat after they shot him in the feet and bound him up. Now, his Right Sector comrades, who have real combat savvy, deploy gunmen in the centre of the Ukrainian capital. On the other hand, why shouldn’t they do this? They’re the heroes of the Maidan, they’re organised, so, c’mon, who’s going to stand against such brave guys? The Right Sector suspects that MVDU boss Avakov (whom they hate) murdered Sashko Bily. There’s an investigation, but given what happens during revolutionary turmoil, no one should expect that anyone would ever find the real culprits.

The Right Sector bothers everybody. Arrogant men with guns, who’re outside the control of lawful authorities, are seldom useful in normal life. Ordinary life has bureaucracy, bickering, quarrels, and underhanded dirty tricks, but it doesn’t have shootouts and putting avtomats on the table as an argument. Nobody wants such dashing “Cossacks” mucking about in everyday life. Understandably, they frighten folks. Today, Ukrainians face a difficult bit of work. They need to get rid of the Right Sector somehow, but they want to preserve the heroic flair of the Maidan. That is, they can’t admit that they used these scumbags… they can’t even admit that these characters are scumbags on principle. However, what about the celestial heroism of the Maidan band? Therefore, we need to make sure that these characters were heroes once, but they’re only virtual heroes now.

Adolf Hitler carried out the Night of the Long Knives, where he cut the stormtroopers down to size in a new Massacre de la Saint-Barthélemy. Yet, to arrange a massacre after this extraordinary victory of democracy over common sense would be discrediting the results of the revolution itself. To try to shoot them one by one on the quiet… that’s impossible. The Ukraine isn’t a large country, its people are vociferous, and there’s technology to shoot and record an event and spread it on the internet. As a result, the junta strikes exactly the same rock that the previous government foundered upon… the question of when to use force against militants. However, if Yanukovich hesitated to give the order to shoot, forcing police to stand under attacks of those throwing stones and incendiaries, such prudence won’t work for the revolutionaries. Their grip on power is so tenuous that they can’t allow any “Sashko Bily” to erode it. They need to strengthen their grip on power, and spilt blood seems to them the best solution, not only in terms of deterrence of all sorts of dubious elements, previously known as Maidan activists, but for rallying the ranks of their supporters. You see, none of them would be without guilt; a shameful past would unite and bind them together. What more is there to add? Lucky Ukrainians… they dreamed of a taste of freedom… now, they getting it by the spoonful. However, the Right Sector saga… it’s only at the beginning…

The MVDU Shitcanned 90 Percent of Its Leading Elements

00 Riots in Kiev 01. 07.01.14

The new face of Ukrainian “law”… the rule of law lies trampled in the mud… God do help the Little Russian people…


On 4 March, on his Facebook page, acting MVDU chieftain Arseny Avakov said that the MVDU fired 90 percent of its leading elements. Avakov said that over the past three months, the leading MVDU elements “discredited themselves”, and that confidence of Ukrainians in the police “hovers around nil, and [the police] are almost worthless”. He went on to say that appointments to replace all field commanders will take place “in the next two days”. Avakov emphasised that the present priority is to restart effectual work, not reforming the police, to restore “public order and security on the streets… to regain the ability to investigate and apprehend criminals using special units”. Avakov, a long-time Timoshenko crony, became interim head of the MVDU on 22 February. Five days later, when the Rump Rada approved a new cabinet, they confirmed him as permanent head of the agency. One of his most important and widely discussed actions was his dissolution of the MVDU Berkut spetsnaz unit, which the former Ukrainian government used against the Euromaidan rioters {these violent elements have an effectual veto on all junta decisions: editor}. Avakov also initiated an internal investigation, to see if the spetsnaz soldiers’ actions fit legal norms.

4 March 2014



Editor’s Note:

Avakov’s entire statement is GIGO. You can’t have “public security and order on the streets” as long as the Euromaidan riot leaders hold a veto in the junta (and they do). These Madame Defarges tell Avakov what to do… not the other way ‘round. Firstly, Avakov dissolved the Berkut, leaving the junta with no reliable spetsnaz unit for public order. Secondly, he’s dismissed most of the senior elements in the MVDU, which means that inexperienced sorts are now in the lead, chosen (more likely) for political reliability and not professional competence. Shades of the Yezhovshchina! All of this means that law enforcement in the Ukraine is now a sham, which suits the oligarch kleptocrats just fine. The rule of law lies in the dust, replaced by the rule of influence and the rule of the mob. Let me repeat… the police now are completely knackered and emasculated… the mob rules and there’s no legal restraint upon them… the oligarchs can ignore the law with impunity. The Ukraine is on the verge of a Reign of Terror unchecked by statutory or humanitarian restrictions. That’s what “Avakov also initiated an internal investigation, to see if the spetsnaz soldiers’ actions fit legal norms” means. As Yanukovich is safe from the mob and from Yuliya’s fury in Russia, the junta will have show trials and throw underlings to the dogs (the mob and the oligarchs). Note well that neocon Republicans, in particular, slobber over this. It tells you much about their lawless  “Libertarian” amorality, doesn’t it?

Oh, one last thing… Avakov never uses official channels to announce his diktats. A legitimate government official uses official government media to announce decisions… not their Facebook page! If that doesn’t tell you that the Timoshenko junta is illegitimate, nothing will…

Sevastopol to Keep Berkut Unit Embodied and Part of Police

00 Kiev. riots 01. 24.01.14


Aleksei Chaly, the new Mayor of Sevastopol, promised residents that he wouldn’t disband the Berkut spetsnaz unit. The Sevastopol authorities intend to ignore yesterday’s decree of acting Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs Arseny Avakov abolishing the Berkut. Mayor Chaly promised that the Berkut would stay embodied and that its members would continue to receive their official pay.

Chaly invited the Berkut troopers to Sevastopol, saying, “They’re decent men”. He pointed up that they could form the nucleus for a self-defence force, and be part of the municipal police in future. Chaly noted, “These men proved themselves patriots; they more than adequately fulfilled their duty to their motherland. Now, their former chiefs want to throw them to rabid Nazis. In future, any envoys from Kiev won’t go to Sevastopol nor to any other place that agrees with the Executive Committee”.

Editor’s Note:

Where is Chaly getting the money for this? Why, from Russia… but not from the government! In the USA, the government serves at the pleasure of the corporate élite… the government is merely a cat’s paw for corporate interests (as we saw in Chile in 1973). This is the real reason for the American support of the Timoshenko putschists… American corporate leaders smell profit for themselves. In Russia, however, the corporate élite serves at the pleasure of the government (one reason the American corporate élite hates Russia and vilifies it in its media). What’s my reason for such a statement? Let me give you a name… Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Russian oligarchs know that if they cross VVP, they’ll bust rocks under the Arctic sun in an ITK in the Sakha Republic. Ergo, if he makes a “suggestion”… much as John Boehner is the Stepin Fetchit running dog of Big Pharma/Big Insurance… they all say, “Thank you, sir, may I please have another!”

Moscow isn’t going to get involved in the Ukraine. That’s true… but Russian money will flow in from corporate sources and Russian “civilian” volunteers will pass through the porous and mostly unguarded border. VVP has deniability… just as American corporate interests have deniability for their actions when they use the American government. That is, VVP uses the Americans’ own tactic against them! “We didn’t send any money to Mayor Chaly!” That’ll be true… but Roman Abramovich knows what to do… he has Khodorkovsky’s example before him, doesn’t he?

The Japanese have a word, haragei, which means, “belly talk”. “Belly talk” is when you make loud pious noises about something, but do the exact opposite… however, you give subtle hints that your public position is mere formality, and that your actions will be otherwise. Methinks that the world capital of “belly talk” right now is Moscow, especially, with Sergei Lavrov, the “Old Master”, leading the belly talkers (they do have such sincere looks on their faces, don’t they? The Americans hate the fact that Sergei Viktorovich is telling them, “Assume the position!”)… that’s why the USA is so pissed. You see, the Russians are saying all the “correct things”… the USA can’t fault them in public. Russia is going to follow its national interests… and there’s more than one way to do so… all roads DO lead to Rome, but not all roads go through Ostia, if you catch my drift. Keep your eyes open… VVP isn’t the master statesman of our time for nought…

Avakov “Dissolves” Berkut Unit

00 Kiev riots 02. 20.02.14

These guys are guiltless… Avakov is gutless… whom do you prefer?


Acting Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs Arseny Avakov signed a decree dissolving the Berkut spetsnaz MVDU unit. He announced it today on his Facebook page, saying, “There isn’t any Berkut anymore. I’ve signed decree number 144 on 25 February 2014 eliminating the Berkut unit. I’ll give more details in a special briefing tomorrow”.

Editor’s Note:

Berkut is NOT “dissolved”. Click here to read about their orderly redeployment to the Crimea. That is, Berkut isn’t disbanded… it’s joined the patriots opposing the illegitimate Timoshenko putschists. I wonder why Catherine Ashton is kissing the asses of the junta in a major way… she’s worse than any other Western figure is.

Every government has special ops units like the Berkut. It takes a long time to train each trooper properly, and to form such a unit from scratch takes at least six months to create a shaky unit… 9-12 months for a mediocre unit… and if you wanted to do it right, you’d take at least 18 months. This shows the Timoshenko cabal‘s incompetence for all to see. Whom are they going to replace the Berkut with? Indeed, any group that they’d come up with would lack its training and discipline, which means that its members would crack under stress. That would lead to them using deadly force when there was no reason to do so. That’s irresponsible in the extreme. People are going to die needlessly for this act of public grandstanding. The Berkut was full of stand-up guys who were real patriots… who’s going to replace them, Svoboda Uniate strong-arm pukes? God do help us…

Oh, one last thing… Avakov is a criminal who was in the slam in Italy, who had an Interpol “red notice“ out against him (hmm… that’s probably where Langley recruited him). Of course, criminals don’t like cops… why did the putschists put a known criminal in charge of the cops? Interesting question, isn’t it?
