26 May 2014. WARNING: EXTREME BULLSHIT AHEAD. However, A “Read n’ Heed” from the Western Media on the Euromaidan. A Broken Clock is Right Twice a Day

00 Russians forward! 10.05.14

Here’s our reply to the Uniate Euromaidan terrorists and their threats… they scream, “Knife the Moskali”… well, Maidan assholes, Russians stab back! It’s NOT OK with us… we ARE Moskali, and don’t you forget it…

Note well that the Euromaidan terrorists refuse to disband and leave. Who’s paying them and why? It does smell like Langley. As long as the Euromaidan trash sit in their camp, there’s no legit Ukrainian state or government… it’s in thrall to unmasked thuggery and bullying. There are multiple problems with the piece below, but DO read it… it’ll tell you how the disordered and scatter-brained neoliberals think.

As Ukrainians prepare for Sunday’s presidential election, the message from Kiev’s main square is clear… they will closely watch the new leader and the people could rise up again if they feel cheated. Three months after President Viktor Yanukovich fled the capital in the face of a street uprising, the Maidan still looks like a war zone. It’s bedecked with barbed wire and barricades, covered with tents, and patrolled by khaki-clad “defenders” in no hurry to pack up. Ivan Stratyenko, 40, a “sotnik” (leader) on the Maidan, said, “I’ve been here since December. We’ll stay here until after the presidential election, but the new president and authorities must fulfil our demands for genuine democracy and an end to corruption. The revolution isn’t finished. Yanukovich has gone, but the system that nourished him and allowed him to plunder the country is still in place. We expect wise but radical actions from our new president”. Stratyenko is a former musician from Lvov in the nationalist hotbed of the Western Ukraine.

Opinion polls suggest that oligarch Pyotr Poroshenko will win the election in Sunday’s first round. If he fails to muster more than 50 percent of the vote, a second round will occur on 15 June. Many view Poroshenko, a former government minister once allied to Yanukovich, but who backed the Maidan protests, as a pragmatic experienced operator who’d maintain Ukraine’s tilt to the West whilst trying to mend shattered ties with Russia. Another Maidan commander, Andrei Veremiyenko, made clear the new president would face scrutiny, especially after an earlier street uprising, 2004’s Orange Revolution, brought in a government many activists consider a discredited failure. The 40-year-old former sports teacher said, “If they try to go back to the old corrupt system, there’d be a third Maidan, and it’d be more savage than before, much more savage. Our demands must be met… namely a decentralisation of power and the creation of a system that truly fights corruption. That isn’t yet happening. Bureaucrats are still rigging auctions and taking bribes, those involved in the killing of people on the Maidan have still not been punished”. His remarks were tinged by anger and grief over the deaths of more than 100 people in the uprising, many shot by police snipers while defending the barricades during three days in February {this is an outright lie… most of the deaths were caused by Euromaidan terrorists with CIA-provided arms: editor}.

“Another Oligarch”

Amidst the camp clutter, the posters, placards, and Ukrainian and European flags, photographs of the “Maidan martyrs”… old and young, men and women… greet visitors as they pick their way past the tents where some 1,000 people are said still to live. However, on a sunny May afternoon, the Maidan mood is relaxed. Men in combat gear sit around, gossiping or playing cards. Some, locals say, have no other home to go to or simply prefer the camaraderie of camp life and the belief they are serving a higher cause to the humdrum routine of a normal job. A woman plays a piano standing near the tents. A young woman wearing a Minnie Mouse costume strolls past an old man dressed in a Cossack uniform who looks somewhat the worse for drink.

Today, Kiev’s… and the world’s… attention is now firmly focused not on the Maidan, but on the eastern Ukraine, where troops are clashing daily with elements who’ve declared independence and who wish to rejoin Russia. The easterners depict their uprising against Kiev’s rule as a mirror image of the Maidan protests that toppled Yanukovich, who came from the eastern region of Donetsk, and replaced him with what many in the east see as a “fascist junta”. Some former Maidan fighters have since signed up to join a newly-formed “National Guard” (sic) {actually nothing but a uniformed undisciplined rabble: editor} that are fighting to try to regain territory held by the pro-independence elements in the eastern Ukraine. Kiev and the West accuse Moscow of backing the easterners. Russia denies arming them, but it said that their aims are legitimate. Veremiyenko said, “The troubles in the east have diverted our attention. Instead of fighting the Ukraine’s internal problems like corruption, we have to deal with the Russian threat, with separatists (sic) in the east”.

Kiev’s Western-backed interim government hopes that Sunday’s election will restore normality and stability after months of turmoil that also saw the Crimea rejoin Russia. However, on the Maidan, views about the Ukraine’s probable next president aren’t very positive. Nikolai, 57, a retired soldier, said, “Now, we’re about to pick another oligarch. We got rid of one gang only to see it replaced by another. I’m very disappointed. I’m sure that in six months or so, people will again appear on the Maidan with placards shouting ‘Ukraine without Poroshenko'”. Nikolai, who declined to give his family name, added that he’d vote on Sunday for Yuliya Timoshenko, a feisty but divisive former Prime Minister and Orange Revolution leader, who opinion polls show trailing far behind Poroshenko in second place. Stratyenko, the musician-turned-commander, agreed that Poroshenko was part of the old system, although “not a bad man”. He added, “Irrespective of who wins this election, the Ukraine can never return to how things were before Yanukovich’s fall. The Maidan shows that people are starting to wake up; they want to take on responsibility. We don’t want a state dominated by our leaders, that was the Soviet Union. We’re the masters now; we’re the owners of this country”.

Editor:

The above should be proof, even for the slow learners, that the Euromaidan crowd are evil and that they must be put down with force, if necessary. The USA opened up the blood taps on this one. Note well that Nuland and Zbig cackle in glee… as does Albright and those of her ilk. God do preserve us. We’ve fallen… and we REFUSE to get up.

The New Ukraine: Woe to the Vanquished

00 ukrainian rioter 02. 31.01.14

______________________________

President Yanukovich lost and the situation in the Ukraine is developing according to the old rule known to the ancient Romans… “Woe to the Vanquished”. During the first day of its work, the Rada replaced a dozen ministers with Ukrainian nationalists, cancelled the regional status for the Russian language, even in areas where Russians are a majority, and declared the still legal President Viktor Yanukovich a criminal. This revolutionary logic makes current events very different from the so-called Orange Revolution of 2005. Then, the events weren’t entirely peaceful either, but at least no one died, and the victors didn’t talk of revenge from the first day of their rule. In fact, that revolution ultimately had two victors… Viktor Yushchenko and Viktor Yanukovich, both of whom later had a turn at trying the president’s wheel.

This time, the revenge is swift and cruel… not only Yanukovich, but also the Minister of Internal Affairs and the General Procurator could face criminal charges in the near future. Already, half of the oblast governors in the Ukraine tendered their resignations, fearing for their safety after rioters ransacked many government buildings and publicly humiliated many officials. What‘s especially worrying is that the so-called EU “mediators” seemed to be very untroubled by this development. In fact, the foreign ministers of France, Germany, and Poland forced on Yanukovich a deal that they formally guaranteed. When the opposition failed to fulfil its part of the deal and took control of government buildings, we didn’t hear a single word of reproach from France or from Germany. As for Poland, its Foreign Minister, Radosław Sikorski {he’s affiliated with the extremist Hard Right American Enterprise Institute in the USA: editor}, went even further, defining the events in Ukraine as “something that isn’t a coup d’état”, Well, what can you expect from a man who continued talking about some mythical “peaceful protests” even when tweeting his reports about “black smoke” and explosions near the presidential administration in Kiev? If anyone disgraced himself on these three days that changed the Ukraine, it was these three ministers… even to a greater degree than Yanukovich did. After these three high EU officials guaranteed this agreement, which lasted less than 10 minutes, who’ll view the EU as a reliable intermediary, a guarantor of anything, or, indeed, even a reliable partner?

Meanwhile, the Ukraine needs partners now. The country is in desperate need of money, and if Yanukovich talked about 20 billion dollars, the new rulers want 35 billion. The EU is nodding at the IMF and the IMF is nodding at the European banks. Formally, Russia could help, as it did many times before, but why should Russia bail out a country where an active anti-Russian minority forces its will on the majority? In addition, private investors may find it hard to trust a country where several hundred determined people with gasoline, stones, and small arms can bring the government to its knees. Therefore, the Ukraine will now spend a lot of time looking for willing capitalists to invest in it. Interestingly, the Western media suddenly developed a liking for old Bolshevik tricks… instead of seriously analysing whether the new “leadership” of the Ukraine was legal or not, it savoured the luxuries of Yanukovich’s presidential residence, now open to the public. Well, after 1917 the Bolsheviks also opened the Winter Palace to public as a “visible justification” for their coup. History didn’t justify it, though. It won’t justify this new Ukrainian coup either.

Editor’s Note:

Babich wrote this two weeks ago, and things worsen every day. Why did the USA and the EU pull the pin out of this particular hand grenade? It ain’t over ‘till it’s over, and I fear that much bloodshed and devastation will come because of the West’s juvenile perfidiousness. Vladimir Putin did NOT set this up… Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Victoria Nuland did… they deserve to be in prison orange for this aggression… but they won’t be. One can only hope that their plans will be as fruitless as GWB’s were in South Ossetia.

We can only pray, pass the jug, and wait… and stay away from the elephant’s feet. God do preserve us…

31 January 2014. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words… Ukrainian Police at a Staging Area Near the Rada Building

00 Kiev. Police near cross. 31.01.14

******

00 Kiev. Priests with icon. 31.01.14

______________________________

The above images are of a Ukrainian police staging area near the Rada building. Be advised that much of what you read, see, and hear from the Western media is “white propaganda“. It’s truthful as far as it goes… but it AIN’T the “whole truth and nuttin’ but the truth” (there be plenty of holes in that there block of swiss cheese, kids). The rebels only have control of a few areas in central Kiev… life goes on elsewhere, even in the same city. Oh, yes… the authorities in Simferopol are raising armed druzhinniki to aid government forces in case of trouble. It’s not the only place where that’s happening. In short, the South and the East are solidly in government hands. Contrariwise, anti-government rebels hold effectual control of the Far West, in Galicia. That’s to say, what’s in contention is Kiev and the centre of the country. The present contretemps will decide who gets to control it… the legitimate government or the Western-backed rebels. It’s still undecided… but don’t trust any American, EU, or pro-Western Ukrainian source… they all have agendas, and the Orange Revolution should tell you that they’re evil to the bone. Have a care… the jury’s still out on this one…

One last thing… the priests in the second image are wearing police uniform as they’re chaplains to the cops… the REAL Church is for the legit government…

Yanukovich Signs Purposeful Anti-Protest Legislation to Suppress Neo-Orangies

00 Uniate icon of Yushchenko 01

******

01 blasphemous Yushchenko icon

Look at these illustrations from the Orange era. Chilling, ain’t it? These are the sort of people on the Maidan… they aren’t good, they aren’t on the up and square, and they’re catspaws of foreign powers and elements, so, we have to keep them in check by whatever means necessary.

______________________________

Editor’s Note:

Viktor Fyodorovich has only one possible rejoinder to Western critics:

KISS MY ASS.

The USA and the EU (that is, Germany) are staging provocations, ergo, the Ukrainian government is correct in squashing them. They attempted another Orange coup, and Viktor Fyodorovich caught them at it. It HAS had unintended consequences (from the Western POV)… the coalition between the Party of Regions and the KPU is stronger than ever, and it’s hardened the resolve of Russophone Ukrainians (the silent majority) to deal harshly with the loudmouthed Galician Uniate minority (less than 10 percent of the population). The West overreached in South Ossetia (Colonel General Novogitsyn testified that the war was “Made in the USA”)… now, Kiev is “a bridge too far”. The Eurasian Union Express is taking on steam and getting ready to leave the station… the West can deal with that or not as it will… but it will steam out of the station, on time, and on track to its destination.

As for negotiations with the opposition, you don’t negotiate with terrorists who hold a knife to your throat… you suppress them, as quickly as you can, as thoroughly as you can.

On Friday, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich signed anti-protest legislation that one opponent dubbed a “charter for oppression”. The Rada passed the legislation on Thursday; however, many Western politicians and observers called it “undemocratic”. Apparently, the laws target those joining anti-government protests in Kiev, initially ignited in November by Yanukovich’s rejection of closer economic and political ties with the EU. Protesters blocking entrances to government buildings now face prison time, whilst the new law provides for 15-days detention for participants in unapproved demonstrations, even if peaceful. The same stricture applies to demonstrators covering their faces with masks or helmets, and to those erecting tents, stages, or other makeshift structures without municipal government approval. All those conditions describe activities typical of events on the Maidan, the focus of anti-government agitation in Kiev. The new legislation also provides up to a year at hard labour in prison for those convicted of libel, including on the internet.

Opponents warned of a chilling effect on freedom, and the likely curtailing of open criticism of the authorities. The new law also includes new restrictions on Ukrainian NGOs modelled on similar legislation passed by Russia earlier this year, restrictions on the internet, and harsher punishments for extremism. Amnesty International called the legislation, approved almost without discussion by the ruling coalition in the Rada, a “charter for oppression”. In a statement, Amnesty International spokesman Heather McGill said, “In passing this law the government is halting any progress the Ukraine has made over the past twenty years towards full compliance with its international human rights obligations. It promises a grim future for the entire nation”. McGill said that the government’s approach suggested that it isn’t interested in negotiating an end to the political stalemate in the economically struggling country and that it intends instead to provoke an escalation in tensions, saying, “The government is clearly not interested in dialogue, or ready to hear criticism, but is paving the way for head-on confrontation with a large part of the population of the country” {she’s wrong in that… the pro-EU fanatics are loud, but they’re a minority: editor}.

EU High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton said that the way the law passed deeply concerned her, saying “Changes to the judicial code which impose worrying restrictions on the rights of assembly and on the freedom of speech and media, and are contrary to the Ukraine’s international obligations”. US Secretary of State John Kerry echoed those sentiments, criticising the lack of transparency and accountability shown by the Rada in passing the legislation {much like the lack of transparency and accountability shown by the USA about black sites, Gitmo, PRISM and South Ossetia. Methinks the maiden protesteth too much: editor}. He said “The steps that were taken … are anti-democratic, they’re wrong {just like Citizens United and the US Electoral College… people in glass houses…: editor}, they are taking from the people of Ukraine their choice and their opportunity for the future. This kind of anti-democratic manoeuvre is extremely disturbing and should be a concern to every nation that wants to see the people of the Ukraine be able to not only express their wish but see it executed through the political process” {they did express their wishes, Kerry… the Regions/KPU coalition is the choice of the majority. What a self-serving maroon: editor}.
