Russia Expresses Concern Over Rights Violations in the Ukraine at UN Human Rights Council Session

________________________

During the 38th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Genève, the Russian delegation expressed its concern over numerous violations of human rights and freedoms in the Ukraine. In particular, delegation head Olga Chekrizova noted the increasing number of infringements on freedom of speech and attacks on journalists. She said during the discussion on the 22nd quarterly report of the UN mission in the Ukraine:

We share the UN’s concern over the growth of attacks on the freedom to express opinions, the freedom of the media, as well as by physical attacks on journalists. In January-March of this year, there were attacks on 21 media workers and we recorded 71 violations of freedom of speech. We condemn the expulsion of Russian journalists from the Ukraine and the arrest of the RIA Novosti Ukraine chief. Russia is seriously concerned by the persistently high level of arbitrary detention, torture, inhumane treatment, and sexual violence in areas adjacent to the Line of Contact in the Donbass. According to UN estimates, Ukrainian law-enforcement officers are responsible for about 75 percent of those crimes. Just like the observer mission, we’re convinced by stalled investigations into violations related to activities of the Mirotvorets website, and by the emergence of similar databases, such as the Parazyt Centre. The level of hate rhetoric and crimes has been on the rise in Ukrainian society… in the period between 16 February and 15 March, we recorded 23 attacks on dissidents, anti-corruption/human rights activists, and Romani.

The Russian delegation also urged Kiev to follow UN recommendations regarding its biased law on education, which infringes on the right of ethnic minorities to have an education in their native language.

They’re Forever Children… Bright Memory to the Angels of the Donbass…

________________________

If a political régime, whatever it is, kills one single child… moreover, in a territory whose only “guilt” is that it has a different view on its own way of life concordant with its cultural identity… all the rest of the world, were it really civilised, should condemn such a régime to Hell. I repeat… ONE SINGLE CHILD!

They’re forever children… bright memory to the angels of the Donbass…

To all too many Anglos, these kids are just “collateral damage”, “incidental casualties of war”. These kids did nothing to the USA… neither did their parents. However, the USA decided to underwrite yet another coup in another “backward” country that needed “democracy” and “enlightenment”. They didn’t care who they killed… their ages didn’t matter… their gender didn’t matter… if they were innocent and the Yank’s proxies killed them, too bad. The USA has been an amoral and grasping society from its very foundation. If you doubt me, I’d say to you:

Look at the American treatment of the aboriginal inhabitants of this land. Look at the Trail of Tears, Wounded Knee, and the stealing of Indian Territory to make “Oklahoma”. Look at slavery… at Dred Scott… at the plantation society of the American South… at the fact that the Confederacy chose national suicide rather than free its slaves (that’s what the Brits asked of Mason and Slidell… free the slaves and the Royal Navy would break the blockade). Look at how the Anglos treated Mexico… the Slaver Revolt in Texas in 1836… the stealing of Northwestern Mexico in 1848 (a land-grab that Mexico has never really accepted). Look at the Anglo Way of War… they prefer striking at innocents… but it’s OK! “We do it from aeroplanes and we don’t know whom we kill, so it’s all right in the end. No, we don’t shoot people like them evil Roosians and bestial Chinks and brutal Serbs and nasty Syrians… we’re better than that”.

The USA is embarked on an evil course. Trump is part of it… the Clintons are part of it… Ted Cruz is part of it… Nancy Pelosi is part of it. The Anglo Establishment is corrupt from top to bottom and has been from the outset of their rebellion against Britain. God do spare us… there’s a cold spot in Hell for those who murder children, and the Anglos have been doing it from the very beginning. The Wheels of God’s Justice do grind slowly, but they do grind very fine, indeed…

28 April 2018. The American Record of FAILURE Against Russia

May Day 2015 in Donetsk… America’s intervention DEEPENED the commitment to the Soviet legacy; it didn’t supplant it.

________________________

You hear much rot from Americans that “Russia needs to change its ways”. They act as though they’re the uncontested global hegemon. Nothing is further from the truth.

Let’s start with 2008… the USA used its puppet-state client Georgia to attack Russian forces in South Ossetia. That war started with a surprise Grad bombardment of the Ossetian capital, Tskhinval, at 2200 in the evening. The Georgians learned well from their American mentors. The American way of war is to strike civilians in preference to dealing with a state’s military forces. Of course, they use “remote means” such as aircraft, missiles, and drones… since they don’t face their victims, you see, it makes it less culpable (in their eyes, that is). Most Americans aren’t as honest as Curtis LeMay, who admitted that if the USA had lost World War II, he would’ve faced trial as a war criminal.

The South Ossetia War ended in disaster for the USA. Russia didn’t call up any reserves; it used two divisions in the Caucasus and two airborne divisions from the strategic reserve to rout the Georgians. Another opening act of the war was an attack on the Roki Tunnel, a transportation bottleneck. Russian regular forces smashed American special oppers disguised as PMC mercs. In fact, the Russian advance to Gori chased the US “advisors” to the Georgians out of their lair, leading to a treasure trove of intel falling into Russian hands (the Russian advance was so swift, the Yanks had to abandon everything, including their computers). The USA bleated that the Russians got nothing of value, but the photographic evidence belied that.

What did Russia do? It didn’t boast. Instead, Russian commentators noted all the problems that surfaced in the operation. This was wrong, that needed repair, and they needed to put this other right. There was no American-style chest-beating and posturing. Russia simply buckled down to work on correcting what it saw as mistakes. After all, the USA and its proxies threaten Russia; it doesn’t have the luxury of secure borders, as the USA has.

In 2014, the USA fomented a coup in the Ukraine. The point of this was not only to put a lickspittle puppet client regime in place in Kiev; it was to seize the Russian naval base at Sevastopol, which controls the Black Sea. In fact, the latter objective was far more important than the former one. The USA managed to put its clients in power in Kiev. However, the Ukraine has been a somewhat lawless anarchic entity since its formation in 1991. The Autonomous Republic of the Crimea and Lugansk and Donetsk Oblasts resisted the coup plotters and their pseudo-government. These three areas were the strongest supporters of the Party of Regions and the KPU, two political entities banned by the American puppet junta. In addition, the Crimea had only been part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic since 1954; it was in the RSFSR before that… it’s never been “Ukrainian”. Therefore, it surprised no one but the ignorant that these three entities refused to obey the illegal authorities installed by the Americans.

The new junta proved itself ineffectual. It couldn’t call the many thousands of reservists to the colours. It didn’t… perhaps, because it couldn’t. Unconfirmed reports indicate that hackers fucked up the Voenkom (military conscription body) computer system… a report that seems true, considering the chaotic recruiting situation since the coup. Russia sent no troops to the Crimea. It had no need, the forces onsite proved sufficient to the task. Indeed, most of the Ukrainian troops cowered in their barracks… if they didn’t rally to Russia outright (as did the commander of the Ukrainian Navy, Admiral Berezovsky). After the initial stages, Russia sent the Ukrainian soldiers home with money in their pockets (if they didn’t choose to rally to Russia… most did). There was no combat whatsoever. To put it short, the USA failed in its main objective of dislodging the Black Sea Fleet from its main and most important base. That is, the coup was a failure insofar as attacking Russia went. That’s the real reason for the sanctions… the USA hates it when another power either defeats it or stymies it. The Cubans know all about that.

Now, the Americans wanted to crush the patriotic elements in the new Donetsk Peoples Republic (DNR) and Lugansk Peoples Republic (LNR). The new American plan was to seize the Donetsk airport and fly in junta troops stiffened by American special oppers (again, disguised as PMC mercs, a common Langley ruse). Scratch local forces and Cossacks checked the junta troops tasked with taking the airport. As they couldn’t prevail, the USA fed in “mercs”… this didn’t turn the tide, as the Peoples Republic forces had high morale, motivation, and cohesion (they were fighting for hearth and home, after all, and knew that the Galician Uniate nationalist pigs wanted to kill them). Then, the USA did something abysmally stupid. The only other NATO state willing to help in the American operation was Poland. That caused an uproar in the LNR and the DNR… it was 1612 all over again. The battle at the airport ended in total victory for the DNR forces. It was hard-fought and bloody, but the Americans and Poles, along with their clueless Galician allies, had to abandon the airport and its environs. Another American plan bit the dust!

Then, the American plan was to help the junta forces defeat the patriot forces in a battle around Debaltsevo. The USA trained its lackeys… but it proved ineffectual. Whenever the Galicians ran into serious opposition, they’d resort to frontal attacks, leading to horrific casualties. They were also inert, showing no aptitude for mobile operations. They sat in isolated pockets; the DNR forces defeated them in detail, as the junta forces laid still in stunned cowardice, refusing to withdraw to safety. Did they tell the junta troops that the Americans would rescue them? Perhaps, but we have no evidence that the USA planned such. Rather, I think that the Americans decided to cut their losses and let their allies rot… it’s what they did in China and Vietnam, after all. Like South Ossetia, Debaltsevo was a treasure chest of intel; much of the matériel sent to the junta troops ended up in the hands of the DNR forces, who sent them off to Moscow.

Today, the USA makes Sturm und Drang… but do look at the record. It doesn’t do well against Russia. It simply lacks the ground forces necessary (it isn’t and wasn’t ever a “hyperpower”). If it were to use NATO allies to make up its lack of ground forces, it’d either lead to stiffening Russian resolve (if Germany or Poland came in) or to having half-hearted ineffectual allies holding the flanks. Remember, Romania, Hungary, and Italy held the Wehrmacht’s flanks and failed… their grandsons would do no better (like their grandfathers did, they well understand that this isn’t their war and they’d crumble at the first serious push).

Mike Pompeo is a self-important overconfident asshole, full of braggadocio. Does he believe the drivel that he spouts? I don’t know… neither does anyone else. If he does believe it, we’re in for “interesting times”, and you know what the Chinese mean by that.

The Donetsk and Lugansk Peoples Republics Deserve International Recognition

This is a cri de coeur of an ordinary woman (perhaps, with dodgy English-language skills). She isn’t “important”… she isn’t part of the media or of the Establishment. She’s just a Plain Jane, like you and me. For that reason, we should heed her. You can listen to Rebekka Peres or you can listen to CNN and MSNBC. It’s your choice. I don’t think you that you need to know where I stand!

It’s the will of the people of the Donbass. The USA financed a coup (Maidan) in the Ukraine in 2014 that overthrew President V F Yanukovich. The current Ukrainian government is an illegal government because it was born of a coup d’état. The USA created the current Ukrainian government. Ukrainian nationalists (Nazis) are ruling the country. The USA supplies weapons to the Nazi junta in Kiev. The US military presence in the Ukraine is illegal. The only terrorists in the Ukraine are the Nazis of the OUN and the Verkhovnaya Rada. The Nazi Azov Battalion is under the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs. The Nazis are part of the National Guard. The Nazis demolished many Soviet monuments in the Ukraine. The Nazis are deputies in the Verkhovnaya Rada.

How can the world support this Nazi government? Do people no longer remember Nazi Germany? In the Ukraine, the same thing is happening. People who forget history have to repeat it. The people of the Donbass decided to declare independence from the Ukraine in 2014 in a referendum and created their own republics. They opposed the Nazi régime in the Ukraine. The only legal and democratically elected governments in the area are the governments of the Donetsk and Lugansk Peoples Republics.

The people of the Donbass have no problem with the ordinary people of the Ukraine. They only oppose the Ukrainian nationalists and the Nazi junta in Kiev. No anti-fascist anywhere can support the Nazi régime created and financed by the USA. The only foreign military personnel in the Ukraine are the Americans who train the Ukrainian Army. I’d like to see the whole country free of Western imperialism and the downfall of the Nazi régime oppressing the Ukrainian people. However, it’s a complicated situation. Right now, the Donetsk and Lugansk Peoples Republics deserve recognition from the international community.

It’s shameful and unacceptable that the international community forgot Nazi Germany and supports the genocidal Nazi Ukrainian government. The politicians of the Verkhovnaya Rada deserve to stand trial before a war crimes tribunal for the crimes they committed against their own people. All must realise that the current Ukrainian government is an illegal entity and all countries must cease relations with it. The Donetsk and Lugansk Peoples Republics deserve international recognition.
