US Embassy in Kiev Concerned Over Russian Recognition of Donbass Documents

The Russians are telling the USA:

Fuck off. We won’t let the Peoples Republics go under. Your protests be damned. This isn’t your backyard and you have no interests here.

The American toddlers are having a tantrum. One hopes that the American snit won’t turn to war. They’re not known for good manners or decent behaviour when vexed.

On Saturday, President V V Putin signed a decree allowing temporary recognition of DNR/LNR identification documents by Russia until the Minsk peace accord takes full effect. The US Embassy in Kiev said on its Twitter account:

Russia’s recognition of the separatist “republics” papers is concerning and contradicts the agreed goals of the Minsk agreements.

In 2014, Donetsk and Lugansk Oblasts in the then-eastern Ukraine declared independence from Kiev. In response, Kiev launched military operations against the two Donbass Peoples Republics. In 2015, the sides signed a ceasefire in Minsk brokered by the leaders of the so-called Normandy Four group, comprising France, Germany, Russia, and the Ukraine. Since the beginning of the conflict, LNR and DNR residents faced difficulties with their documents, as their Ukrainian papers were now invalid, but DNR/LNR papers had no international recognition.

Lavrov Tells It Right to Pence’s Smug Face: Russia Will End US-Led World Order

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. It's Our MOTHERLAND! 2014

____________________________________

US Vice President Mike Pence told a room full of Washington lapdogs that the USA would “continue to hold Russia accountable”. Then, Minister of Foreign Affairs S V Lavrov went up to the podium and straightened him out. The opening line to CNN’s report on the predictable sabre-rattling that took place at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday was:

Aiming to calm European fears about USA-Russia ties, Vice President Mike Pence told world leaders Saturday that the USA will stand firm against Moscow while also seeking avenues for coöperation. Pence told the audience that Washington remained unwavering in its commitment to NATO as it faced a more assertive Russia.

Shortly after Pence had finished his war liturgy, Lavrov took the podium. He phrased his comments in a very simple manner so that his American counterparts could understand. Lavrov said that the time when the West called the shots was over and, dismissing NATO as a relic of the Cold War, added:

I hope that (the world) will choose a democratic world order… a post-West one… in which sovereignty defines each country. Moscow wants to build relations with Washington that’d be pragmatic with mutual respect and acknowledgement of our responsibility for global stability.

Lavrov is a career diplomat and a true gentleman, but we’ve noticed a subtle change in his approach to US bullshittery over the last two years. He rarely dances around issues anymore. Sure, he still refers to Washington as “our western friends” or “our American colleagues”. However, he doesn’t hold back after that. The crisis in the Ukraine made it clear that Washington wanted blood, but the US-led crimes against the people of Syria are what made Russia realise that they aren’t dealing with normally reasonable people. Washington is a cabal of psychopaths. The war in Syria also ushered in a new era… we’re witnessing a seismic shift in how we conduct international relations. Russia and Iran just proved that fighting the bully works. Besides, other countries took notice. Lavrov’s comments are more than just an invitation to all nations to join Russia in creating a new world order based on state sovereignty and international consensus. He also issued a warning to Washington:

Pack your bags. It’s over. Buckle up, buttercup.

Pence Offered Uniate Junta Assistance… Trump Is a Russian Hack? I Think NOT

This proves the duplicity of Trump’s junta. This not only proves that the Russians aren’t manipulating Trump; it proves that the Trump cabal wants to implement Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy. All those Russian Orthodox people here who voted for Trump voted to murder the children of their compatriots in the Peoples Republics in the Donbass… Pence’s statement is proof of that. It also proves that all the Democratic Establishment caterwauling about “Russian interference” is sheer bullshit and no decent person can believe it. The USA’s Ruling Establishment is a monster. The world must put it down or face the Long Night. God preserve us.

16 February 2017. The Spirit of Giving Lasts All Year Long

00-the-work-of-christmas-090117

_____________________________________

The Spirit of Christmas lasts all year long… if it doesn’t, there’s something wrong and you need to attend to it. “I was hungry and you gave me meat”… not “only the strong survive”. Think on that whenever you hear any “conservative” bloviation… especially, those labelled “Christian”. Keep this in mind as you hear the hateful godless rants of Mike Pence. Yes, kids, there are those WORSE than Donald Trump is…
