Ukie Pigs Most Probably Desecrated Russian and Serbian Graves in Australia… Cossacks to Defend Cemeteries

Vandals damaged at least 76 graves in a Sydney cemetery, mostly Russian and Serbian. The incident, already condemned by Moscow, happened a day before Ukrainian junta strongman P A Poroshenko was to make an official visit to Australia. Vandals knocked down headstones and turned over crosses in an attack that reportedly took place before dawn on Wednesday in the Russian and Serbian sections of Rookwood Cemetery, the biggest in Australia. Police also discovered some damaged graves in two non-denominational sections of the cemetery, which led to official scepticism about whether racial or religious hatred provoked the attack. However, the timing of the assault… a day before the Ukrainian strongman’s arrival for a two-day visit to Australia… gave rise to suspicions that the desecrators particularly targeted Russian graves.

Russian Orthodox cemetery spokesman Aleksey Ivachyoff said that politics couldn’t excuse what vandals did to the graves, telling RT, “Some people that I’ve seen coming here, once the news came across, they were crying. They said, ‘Nothing like this has ever happened before’. There’s absolutely… no excuse. Whatever political differences people have, they shouldn’t take it [out] on the cemetery. They shouldn’t take it [out] on the graves. They should let people there rest in peace”.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations labelled the attack a hate crime, calling for an investigation “at the highest levels”. On Friday, a Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) statement also condemned “the blasphemous desecration of our compatriots’ graves, which cannot be justified”. On Thursday, ITAR-TASS reported that Cossacks living in Australia… descendants of those who emigrated from Russia a century ago… announced at they’d give a reward of 5,000 AUD (240,000 Roubles. 25,500 Renminbi. 258,300 INR. 4,120 USD. 4,770 CAD. 3,300 Euros. 2,620 UK Pounds) to anyone with information about the vandals. The Cossacks, who were the first to report the assault, said that they’re currently helping police patrol the damaged cemetery to prevent new attacks.

Editor:

I’d not be surprised to see that the Ukie nationalists did this. It’s part n’ parcel of their usual MO… KNIFE THE MOSKALS! The cops in Oz know that if they don’t toe the official line, they’re in a world of shit. The Ukie organisations are scared shitless that their own did do it… and they’re trying to distance themselves from it as best they can. Note well that the Uniates and “Ukrainian Orthodox” shelter such criminal filth and protect them from prosecution. That’s what the rightwing does… grand folks, aren’t they? That’s the world of Rush Limboob, Sarah Palin, and Rod Dreher… shitbirds of a feather DO flock together.

By the way, Rod… the Cossacks in the diaspora are REAL people with character and honour… unlike your worthless rightwing Golden Dawn-loving pals like Taki. You have no right to criticise them in any way. After all, you’re a coward who refused to serve your country in the forces… need I say more?

“I Do It Out Of Respect”: Jerome Man Volunteers To Cut Grass at Neglected Russian Orthodox Cemetery

00 Pete Clawson. Jerome PA. Russian Orthodox cemetery. 25.06.13

______________________________

Every week or so, Pete Clawson of Jerome can be seen driving his tractor and trailer to the Russian Orthodox cemetery outside of Jerome to mow the grass. In addition to the tractor that he uses to cut the grass on the hilly cemetery, he also hauls a lawn mower and other equipment to trim the grass. The church that buried its parishioners at the cemetery has been closed for about 50 years, a local funeral director said. The grass was mowed only once or twice a year since then, said Joseph Hoffman, a funeral director with Hoffman Funeral Homes in Davidsville and Boswell. There are 18 World War I veterans, one World War II veteran, and one Desert Storm veteran resting in peace at the cemetery.

Clawson said that he was driving past the cemetery four years ago when he noticed that the grass was as high as his waist. He said, “I just started cutting it down little by little and got it back into shape”. He then cleaned debris from the roadside ditch in front of the cemetery. Clawson said, “I do it out of respect. You have to have respect for the people who’re buried there”. It takes Clawson about two to three hours to cut the grass, weed the cemetery, and reset the holders for American flags on the graves of veterans. “It’s self-satisfying”, he said about the rewards that volunteering brings.

Clawson, a carpenter and retired owner of Clawson Carpentry, built and remodelled homes throughout the USA. Although retired, he still does some remodelling in the local area. For his efforts, Clawson is the Person of the Week. Hoffman said the last funeral he had at the cemetery was in the 1960s, with the church closing a short time later. He said, “This man (Clawson) has been cutting it the last couple of years, using his own gasoline and equipment”. Clawson isn’t a member of a Russian Orthodox Church nor does he have a family member buried there, said Hoffman, who has helped Clawson to repair flag holders for veterans buried at the cemetery. “He saw something that needed to be done, took the bull by the horns, and did it. That speaks of his character. He does an excellent job. It’s nice to see that volunteerism isn’t dead”.
