Countries around the world start preparations for the Christmas and New Year holidays from late November. The main symbol of the celebration is the decorated tree. Although most people prefer traditional designs, some do extraordinary decorations such as ice-cream cones, Legos, plastic cups, and other uncommon ideas.

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

00 Sydney russian cemetery desecration. 13.12.14

******

______________________________

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?
