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?

Sevastopol Greeted Returning Berkut Soldiers as Heroes with Flowers and a Band

00 Sevastopol. Spetsnaz. 25.02.14

______________________________

On 22 February, Berkut spetsnaz MVDU troops returned from Kiev to Sevastopol. That morning, thousands waited on Nakhimov Square for the buses carrying the soldiers from Kiev. At 11.00, they were on the square to greet the MVDU soldiers; they waited a long time for them to return. However, the PPS (traffic patrol) reported that a bus broke down in Simferopol. Whilst they waited, they held a meeting, at which their leaders read out the decisions of the provisional council in Kharkov, and the crowd endorsed them. Then, some of the people went to the Black Sea Fleet HQ, and handed over petitions with thousands of signatures, asking for aid to set up roadblocks at all access points to the city.

Finally, the buses arrived. The officers couldn’t line up the troops because family and strangers rushed to embrace the fighters. The women said, “Thanks for coming back. We won’t let you go back there for more!” The crowd shouted, “Thank you!” The enthused crowd saved its best for the arrival of the Berkut troopers. The crowd didn’t let them move away from buses. They gave them flowers and sweets, telling them, “We’re proud of you!” Then, they sang the Sevastopol anthem. This moved the soldiers to tears. At last, the officers lined up the troops and marched them to the Nakhimov monument. The crowd parted to let them pass. The commander informed the people, “Our unit carried out its duties of maintaining public order in Kiev; our personnel return to our base without reproach”. The people present greeted the fighters with great emotion; one man even fell to his knees in front of them.

Editor’s Note:

Do see how the Western media won’t tell you the whole story. The junta in Kiev are lying sacks o’ shit. They don’t control the East and South… and that’s that. It’s so bad that Yuliya‘s preparing to hustle herself out of Kiev, using medical care in Germany as an excuse. The junta is a troika, which makes it inherently unstable… all three have to agree on all matters, or they’re in gridlock. What makes it worse is that although Yuliya’s the supposed head of the junta, she’s only a chairman, not a leader. That makes things worse, for she doesn’t have a vetoTyagnibok’s a brute… Klichko’s a naïf… Yatsenyuk’s a clueless puppet… Yuliya’s preoccupied with getting out of Dodge… what a buncha maroons!

In short, anarchy reigns… and the West cackles in glee. Catherine Ashton, kiss my ass! You’ve no right to lecture anyone after what the West did in Serbia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.  John McCain, you can go to hell! You claimed that there was no money to extend UIBs, but you have money to throw at kleptocrats in Kiev. That makes you a liar in my book. All Orthodox who supported (or support) Republicans should hang your head in shame. John McCain is typical… they have money to cause destabilisation and mayhem in the Orthosphere, but they claim that they have no money to help distressed Americans. I’ll be blunt… any Orthodox Christian who supports the GOP after this, supports evil, and we should hold them to account.

Only the gullible take the Timoshenko junta at face value. One of my Russian friends thinks that Yanukovich did this deliberately, to fuck up the opposition. Trust me, in less than a week, they made Yanukovich look good (their vengeful vapourings are only the cherry on the sundae)… they’re MORE corrupt than Viktor Fyodorovich is. Yanukovich is no prize, but he’s head n’ shoulders above the junta. In the real world, you never have “perfect” as a choice. Looked at that way, Viktor Fyodorovich isn’t all that bad… after all, he doesn’t steal as much as the typical US Congressman does nor is he as spectacularly corrupt as a Rick Perry is. Do keep a sense of proportion…

Oleg Tyagnibok: Neo-Nazi, Anti-Semite… and One of the Maidan Leaders

00 Evil to Triumph. Oleg Tyagnibok. 09.02.14

______________________________

Out of all the ultra-nationalists on the Maidan, Oleg Tyagnibok is probably the most noticeable one. There are several reasons for that. Firstly, he’s the official leader of the legal neo-Nazi all-Ukrainian Union Svoboda (Freedom), which has seats in the Rada. Secondly, he’s one of the “troika” or Big Three of the Maidan’s leaders. This made him eligible for many photo-ops with Catherine Ashton, John McCain, and a number of other Western dignitaries who came to support Ukrainian nationalists fighting what they call “bad guys in Russia”. The third reason comes last, but certainly, it isn’t the least one. The Simon Wiesenthal Center, which tracks anti-Semitism around the world, put Mr Tyagnibok into the international top ten of Jew-haters. One should note that Mr Tyagnibok certainly toiled a lot to deserve this title. Ten years ago, he called on the Ukrainian people to get rid of what he called “the Jewish-Russian mafia” allegedly running the Ukraine.

If Mr. Tyagnibok limited himself to the word “Russian” in his description of the Ukraine-running mafia, that would’ve earned him some title like “European of the year” and Catherine Ashton and Herman Van Rompuy would want to shake hands with him a thousand times more after their first meeting in München. However, he added the J-word, and this brought Mr Tyagnibok some bad headlines, even in the USA. A member of the top-five of Tyagnibok party, named Igor Miroshnichenko, made things even worse by describing the Ukrainian-born Hollywood star Mila Kunis as, well, not entirely Ukrainian. In fact, Mr Miroshnichenko described her as, I quote, “a Yid who says nothing but bad things about the country where she was born”. Again, if Mila Kunis had nothing but scorn for the USSR, for that was the true name of the country where she was born, that’d be OK with the USA and Tyagnibok, who suggested outlawing all Soviet symbols in his party programme. However, Mila Kunis allegedly criticised the Ukraine, and this was something Tyagnibok’s people couldn’t stomach. Therefore, instead of being a Ukrainian-American, she simply became a Jew in their eyes.

The question remains… how long are the EU and the USA going to stomach Mr Tyagnibok? The people whom Tyagnibok called the Jewish-Russian mafia are waiting for their answer.

Yanukovich Signs Purposeful Anti-Protest Legislation to Suppress Neo-Orangies

00 Uniate icon of Yushchenko 01

******

01 blasphemous Yushchenko icon

Look at these illustrations from the Orange era. Chilling, ain’t it? These are the sort of people on the Maidan… they aren’t good, they aren’t on the up and square, and they’re catspaws of foreign powers and elements, so, we have to keep them in check by whatever means necessary.

______________________________

Editor’s Note:

Viktor Fyodorovich has only one possible rejoinder to Western critics:

KISS MY ASS.

The USA and the EU (that is, Germany) are staging provocations, ergo, the Ukrainian government is correct in squashing them. They attempted another Orange coup, and Viktor Fyodorovich caught them at it. It HAS had unintended consequences (from the Western POV)… the coalition between the Party of Regions and the KPU is stronger than ever, and it’s hardened the resolve of Russophone Ukrainians (the silent majority) to deal harshly with the loudmouthed Galician Uniate minority (less than 10 percent of the population). The West overreached in South Ossetia (Colonel General Novogitsyn testified that the war was “Made in the USA”)… now, Kiev is “a bridge too far”. The Eurasian Union Express is taking on steam and getting ready to leave the station… the West can deal with that or not as it will… but it will steam out of the station, on time, and on track to its destination.

As for negotiations with the opposition, you don’t negotiate with terrorists who hold a knife to your throat… you suppress them, as quickly as you can, as thoroughly as you can.

On Friday, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich signed anti-protest legislation that one opponent dubbed a “charter for oppression”. The Rada passed the legislation on Thursday; however, many Western politicians and observers called it “undemocratic”. Apparently, the laws target those joining anti-government protests in Kiev, initially ignited in November by Yanukovich’s rejection of closer economic and political ties with the EU. Protesters blocking entrances to government buildings now face prison time, whilst the new law provides for 15-days detention for participants in unapproved demonstrations, even if peaceful. The same stricture applies to demonstrators covering their faces with masks or helmets, and to those erecting tents, stages, or other makeshift structures without municipal government approval. All those conditions describe activities typical of events on the Maidan, the focus of anti-government agitation in Kiev. The new legislation also provides up to a year at hard labour in prison for those convicted of libel, including on the internet.

Opponents warned of a chilling effect on freedom, and the likely curtailing of open criticism of the authorities. The new law also includes new restrictions on Ukrainian NGOs modelled on similar legislation passed by Russia earlier this year, restrictions on the internet, and harsher punishments for extremism. Amnesty International called the legislation, approved almost without discussion by the ruling coalition in the Rada, a “charter for oppression”. In a statement, Amnesty International spokesman Heather McGill said, “In passing this law the government is halting any progress the Ukraine has made over the past twenty years towards full compliance with its international human rights obligations. It promises a grim future for the entire nation”. McGill said that the government’s approach suggested that it isn’t interested in negotiating an end to the political stalemate in the economically struggling country and that it intends instead to provoke an escalation in tensions, saying, “The government is clearly not interested in dialogue, or ready to hear criticism, but is paving the way for head-on confrontation with a large part of the population of the country” {she’s wrong in that… the pro-EU fanatics are loud, but they’re a minority: editor}.

EU High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton said that the way the law passed deeply concerned her, saying “Changes to the judicial code which impose worrying restrictions on the rights of assembly and on the freedom of speech and media, and are contrary to the Ukraine’s international obligations”. US Secretary of State John Kerry echoed those sentiments, criticising the lack of transparency and accountability shown by the Rada in passing the legislation {much like the lack of transparency and accountability shown by the USA about black sites, Gitmo, PRISM and South Ossetia. Methinks the maiden protesteth too much: editor}. He said “The steps that were taken … are anti-democratic, they’re wrong {just like Citizens United and the US Electoral College… people in glass houses…: editor}, they are taking from the people of Ukraine their choice and their opportunity for the future. This kind of anti-democratic manoeuvre is extremely disturbing and should be a concern to every nation that wants to see the people of the Ukraine be able to not only express their wish but see it executed through the political process” {they did express their wishes, Kerry… the Regions/KPU coalition is the choice of the majority. What a self-serving maroon: editor}.
