Lavrov sez: “We Won’t Leave the People of the Donbass in the Lurch”

War damage in the Donbass… the fighting continues… but for how much longer?


Minister of Foreign Affairs S V Lavrov said in an interview:

Our efforts will continue to aim at preventing “hotheads” in Kiev from starting a new cycle of violence in the southeast. In any case, we won’t leave the people of the Donbass in the lurch. The process of settlement in the southeast stalled because of the persistent reluctance of the Ukrainian leadership to fulfil its obligations under the Minsk Agreements. We’ll continue to work hard to make Kiev stop its blockade of the Donbass and proceed to a full implementation [of the Minsk Agreements]. We expect a similar attitude from the West, as they’ve repeatedly claimed that they want a speedy implementation of the Minsk Agreements, as they stated that there’s no alternative to them. The main point of the Minsk Agreements is that there should be direct dialogue between Kiev and Donetsk and Lugansk. Neither Russia nor the new US president nor anyone else will be able to do anything for the parties to the conflict, for a settlement depends upon direct negotiations between the parties on mutual guarantees of security and the principles of building a common future.

Aleksei Zhuravko: Today’s Ukrainian Authorities Could Bring on “Chernobyl Redux”


Dear Friends!


Not for the first time, I’m writing to you to tell you that those incompetent know-alls who flaunt themselves as today’s Ukrainian authorities are leading us to a catastrophe… both industrial deterioration and an energy crisis. Besides that, they could lead us into a fatal situation; their actions could bring on “Chernobyl Redux”. Such an affair could bring consequences that our posterity could never repair. Most of all, it’d affect your children’s lives. The world community doesn’t see, notice, or even realise that these power-wielding barbarians can not only lead the Ukraine into chaos but can also affect Europe and the entire post-Soviet space. I’ll tell you one thing… if sensible Ukrainians don’t come to their senses, if they don’t stand up, then, the Ukraine will suffer great misery and pain.


This is what the advent to power of these gatecrashing thieves and murderers is leading us to. The effects are already visible. It hurts me to watch it all.

In Respect,

Aleksei Zhuravko

“When Do You Think that the Donbass Will Be Back Under Ukrainian Control?”


Dear Friends!

A Ukrainian site held a poll… “When do you think that the Donbass will be back under Ukrainian control?” You can see the results for yourself. People on both sides are tired of war and poverty; they have no confidence in the future. Ordinary people want peace, they want to work in peace, and they want to raise their children in peace. Now, no one believes the criminal authorities. The only solution is to destroy the régime of Poroshenko and his criminal cronies.

3 April 2017. Hannah Arendt On Our True Danger


This is why I hate and oppose both “conservatism” and “liberalism”… both are flights from reality. I note that “liberals” are worse than “conservatives” are… the latter are openly feral and greedy, whilst the former often mouth smarmy platitudes as they glom as much as the “conservatives” do. That’s particularly evil and indecent. Note well that neither part of the duopoly finds any offence in the present genocide by their Uniate nationalist clients in the Donbass. NEITHER SIDE. Both slobber with glee at the prospects of personal gain and profit.

This is why I’m a leftist. I stand against BOTH “liberalism” and “conservatism”… they’re simply two sides of the same rotten neoliberal coin. We won’t have justice until we destroy neoliberalism. The present evil started under Reagan, picked up steam under the Clintons, and Bush and Obama built it up. Trump is entrenching it further. We need to destroy this beast, but shall we? Yet… a spectre haunts the rich and their dog-like apologists like Buchanan and Dreher… what do they know that we don’t?

One last thing… look at the image… some “moral superiority”, isn’t it?
