A media representative for RF Gosduma Deputy Andrei Kozenko told us that LNR Head of State I V Plotnitsky and DNR Head of State A V Zakharchenko arrived in the Crimea today to take part in events dedicated to the third anniversary of the “Crimean Spring”, as well as to meet with the Russia-Donbass Integration Committee. RF Gosduma Deputy Andrei Kozenko and RF Federation Council Member Sergei Tsekov met the LNR/DNR delegations at the Simferopol airport. On 17 March, Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky will take part in the first meeting of the Russia-Donbass Integration Committee at the Livadia Palace. The Committee is a permanent structure with the objective of strengthening the humanitarian, social, and cultural integration of the Donbass and the RF.

The LNR delegation included Head of State Plotnitsky, Acting Deputy Chairman of the LNR Council of Ministers Natalya Tikhonskaya, Acting Head of the National Executive Committee of the Public Movement “World of Lugansk” and Chairman of the Head of State’s Public Council Nikolai Zaporozhets, Chairman of the LNR Federation of Trade Unions Oleg Akimov, LNR Peoples Soviet Deputy and Chairman of the LNR all-Republic Organisation of Trade Unions of Education and Science Workers Oleg Koval, and LNR Minister of Agriculture and Food Ruslan Sorokovenko.

This is VERY IMPORTANT NEWS. I chose the all-caps for a reason. Russia is officially acknowledging the existence of the Peoples Republics by accepting this official visit, by sending governmental figures to greet them, by giving the Donbass Heads of States a role in official Russian celebrations, and by setting up a committee to oversee the “integration” of the PRs with the RF… not only in a socio-economic sense, but also the state apparat.

This isn’t full-blown diplomatic “recognition”… it’s more important than that. It’s a bald statement that the integration of the PRs into the RF is under serious consideration and that the RF will NOT allow the junta to overrun them. This signals the final divorce of the PRs from the present notional Ukrainian “state”. It’s also a sign that the Russians are readying to step in after the inevitable collapse of the junta. I think that the gambit is clear… Russia wants the 1914 border, which means that Poland, Romania, and Hungary would all sit at the barbeque table, too. These countries would gain long-claimed territories… but at the cost of angering the USA and the EU. Hungary will sit at table… that’s clear. Orbán will do it. That puts pressure on Poland and Romania to do likewise… their nationalists will demand it. Putin’s strategy is clear. Take what was Russia’s… leave the rest of the carcass (what the Habsburgs ruled in 1914) to the successor states of the Habsburgs. It’d split the EU and NATO, perhaps, fatally (in their present forms, at least). Do you doubt that VVP is the slickest statesman out there? Trump has no traction… the USA doesn’t have the moxie or capability to intervene, short of war with Russia (which won’t happen). The EU has no traction… it has less moxie or capability than Trump does, and that’s before you count in the deep divisions in its ranks. Vova wins again… as a judoka, he knows how to use his opponents’ strengths AGAINST them. Think on that…

Official Assessment of LNR Head of State I V Plotnitsky on the Memorial Day of the Victims of the So-Called “Golodomor” in the Ukraine

00 Bandera scum out! 10.05.14

“Out with the Banderist scum!”



To our honourable Citizens and fellow countrymen!

On 26 November, noisy and public events in the areas controlled by the Kiev régime will occur, although good order demands that a proper response should be dignified and private. In fact, the untimely death of loved ones from hunger brings great anguish that one doesn’t want to put on public display. However, for over 20 years, the Kiev régime has tried to turn a common tragedy into a political show that has the aim of sowing discord and enmity between different peoples and social groups. Did death ask the nationality of the people that it swept up in the great famine of the 20s and 30s? Didn’t many hundreds of thousands of victims die in the Volga region and in Kazakhstan? At about the same time, many suffered from hunger in Romania, Hungary, Poland, Germany, France, Italy, and even the USA, but no one there calls it the “Golodomor”… they call it a “global economic crisis” and the “Great Depression”. Finally, why won’t these ceremonies point up that the Poroshenko régime is enforcing an all-out blockade on the Donbass? That could’ve led to widespread death from hunger, but Russian aid forestalled that. On behalf of the people of the LNR, we declare that we sympathise with all who lost loved ones to famine, wherever they might live, in the Ukraine, in Russia, in Africa. We’re always ready to help everyone who needs it. For example, during the siege of Lugansk, captured Banderist aggressors received food, water, and medical assistance on the same basis as our soldiers and citizens. However, we strongly condemn the deceitful notion of the “Golodomor”, which [nationalists] allege was an intentional action against Ukrainians. Those who blame their former countrymen for the “Golodomor” should first remove the log from their eye and soberly assess the immediate consequences of their own policies. Soon, the people will ask you not for the “Golodomor”, but for the “Tarifomor”* and most of all for the “ATO-mor*!

  • Tarifomor: a play on words, adding “tarif” (rates) to “–mor”, referring to the vast increases in rents, utility rates, and prices under the American-installed Uniate nationalist junta
  • ATO-mor: another play on words, it adds “–mor” to ATO (Anti-Terrorist Operation), the Uniate nationalist term for the present American-supported aggression in the Donbass

Plotnitsky’s Attackers Used Bomb Equivalent to 10-15 Kilos of TNT

00 Trip-wire pipe bomb. 20.02.14


Today, the LNR MGB announced in re the assassination attempt against LNR Head of State I V Plotnitsky:

They placed the charge on the outer surface of a column, facing the roadway, at a height of 1 metre off the ground. We estimate that the bomb was equivalent to up to 10-15 kilogrammes of TNT. They placed the device near a traffic light. In addition, we have reason to believe that the attackers used plastic explosives based on RDX. We’re considering several versions of the incident, including it being an action of a Ukrainian terrorist group. We’re continuing the investigation.

Plotnitsky’s Condition Improves

00 Igor Plotnitsky. Lugansk Peoples Republic. 22.03.15


On Monday, a source in his inner circle told us that LNR Head of State I V Plotnitsky is feeling much better and will soon return to work. On Saturday morning, there was an attempt on Plotnitsky’s life… a bomb exploded near his car and Plotnitsky had to be hospitalised. The head of the LNR MVD media office, Yevgeni Lyubenko, laid out several versions of the incident, including an act of sabotage by a group of junta militants. Our source said:

Igor Venediktovich is all right, he’s preparing to go back to work soon. Perhaps, he’ll show up at Government House today. After the attempt on his life, we tightened security measures at Government House.
