Russia Blows Whistle on Impending Ukie Attack… Junta Attacks Slavyansk… Junta Banditti Fail to Take Slavyansk and Kramatorsk

Opolchenie fighters in Slavyansk receiving the canonical Church’s blessing…the junta bandits are mostly Uniates and schismatics

____________________________

On Thursday, a source in the Ukrainian General Staff of the Armed Forces revealed that junta spetsnaz plan to start storming buildings and defences controlled by patriot opolchenie on 2 May. So-called “Interior Minister” Arseny Avakov headed the operation at first, but junta SBU chieftain Valentin Nalivaichenko is the new boss. The source said, “Turchinov removed Avakov from control as he failed during the initial phase of the operation”. The source said Nalivaichenko had SBU instructors “train” battalions of Right Sector terrorists, by arrangement with extremist leader Dmitri Yarosh. The assault will fall mainly in Lugansk Oblast, as the junta wants to regain control of the oblast by 3 May at any cost. Our source pointed up, “To help this, the SBU chief received carte blanche. Turchinov is coordinating actions with Yarosh”.

Editor:

This means that the junta (and its American puppeteers) are planning to set Galician Uniate terrorists loose on the East Bank. This guarantees that the junta will eventually lose. Do not misunderstand me… the East Bankers HATE Uniates, and this goes back to the Polish occupation. This will trigger a bloodbath worse than any seen in the Yugoslav Civil War of the 90s. The Right Sector are brutal, undisciplined, unruly, untrained, and unrestrained killers. To use them is to invite murder on the scale found in the UPA massacres of World War II. God preserve the ordinary people of Malorossiya and Novorossiya from this satanic horde.

Junta pakhan Aleksandr Turchinov signed a decree, “On Measures to Improve the State’s Defence Capability”, reinstating conscription in the Ukraine. The decree is now published and in effect.

Editor:     

Twice the junta called up reservists… twice the reservists refused to come to the colours. No one except for Uniates, schismatics, and American-style Proddies will answer this draft. Actually, it’s an attempt to criminalise those who refuse call-up. In short, it’s an act of weakness, not strength. Its empty words, meant to impress shallow shits like Nuland, Kerry, and Biden, and their media running dogs (such as Radio Liberty, the Washington Times, CNN, and Fox News) in Washington.

On Thursday, Sergei Aksyonov, the Chairman of the Republic of the Crimea (RK) Government, and Vladimir Konstantinov, the Chairman of the RK Supreme Soviet, said that the junta offensive against patriot-controlled regions would be the last gasp of the junta. Aksyonov said, “The crooks in Kiev don’t understand that everything they’re doing will boomerang on them personally. A war against one’s own people never does any good. We must put them on trial for this. At any rate, history will make its judgement of these villains, who send troops against their own people. If they resume military operations, it’d produce a result opposite to that expected by Kiev. They still don’t understand that all this will bring about is resistance ten times stronger than now. We must never forgive the killing of peaceful people, no matter what goals one pursues. They must come to their senses. We express our support for the people of the Southeast Ukraine, who legitimately fight for their rights and freedoms”.

Konstantinov echoed him, “A resumption of the military operation in the southeast Ukraine will be the last onslaught of the Kiev authorities. They touch one person… they’ll get a response ten times bigger. Kiev is creating a situation that simply can’t last. The people who’ve seized power in Kiev are incompetent. I wouldn’t be surprised if they proclaimed Hitler their honorary leader tomorrow. Sooner or later, I think that we’ll have to stop this Nazi orgy so that it doesn’t bring disgrace upon the Russian World before the eyes of the whole planet”.

On Friday, a opolchenie spokesman said that a full-scale operation is underway against Slavyansk, and junta armoured vehicles are on the outskirts of the city. Junta combat helicopters are over the town, which is under full blockade, fighting is underway. A opolchenie source told ITAR-TASS that he has no reliable information on casualties. Earlier, he said that junta forces jumped off at 05.00 local time (19.00 PDT. 22.00 1 May EDT. 03.00 BST. 06.00 MSK. 12.00 AEST), using helicopters and troops to strike peaceful civilians.

Here is the face of the Uniate terrorists that the junta wants to unleash on the East Bank to wreck rapine and rampage

______________________________

So-called “Interior Minister” Arseny Avakov claimed that junta forces captured 10 opolchenie strongpoints in Slavyansk and that they took opolchenie fighters prisoner during operations on Friday. The operation against Slavyansk jumped off in the early morning. “We took ten strongpoints and captured prisoners”, Avakov claimed on his Facebook page. He also said that one pilot died and several fighters wounded in clashes between junta forces and opolchenie in Slavyansk. Local patriot sources told RIA-Novosti that one person was dead and one wounded, “The Ukrainian army is landing troops from helicopters, they want to fully secure the area, the battle already is in the city centre. Armoured vehicles are on the outskirts”. Meanwhile, opolchenie in Slavyansk reported that they shot down three helicopters down over the city and said that they had video, which they’d release shortly. On Friday morning, a warning siren informed Slavyansk residents about the beginning of combat operations, soon after the shooting started. Slavyansk opolchenie reported attacks on strongpoints and on the train station.

Editor:

Note that Avakov isn’t supposedly in charge and that he’s using his Facebook page, not the official MVDU website… in short, this could be more GIGO. No doubt, there’s an attack… but three helos down… that doesn’t smell like a junta victory at all.

On Friday, the Minoborony Ukrainy said, “Opposition forces outside of Slavyansk in Donetsk Oblast downed two Ukrainian Mi-24 armed helicopters carrying out aerial patrols. According to preliminary information, unidentified people using Zenit portable SAMs took down the helos. As a result, two military personnel died and several others injured”. It also reported that a Mi-8 transport helicopter suffered damage.

On Friday, the launch of junta military operations against in the early morning disrupted railway service around Slavyansk. A railway worker told RIA-Novosti, “No, the trains aren’t running at the moment. The station itself is operating”. At the same time, station staff found it difficult to explain how they plan to deal with the delay or when the movement would resume. The timetable for trains in Slavyansk today included 32 long-distance trains and 33 suburban trains. Amongst them, 50 trains pass through Slavyansk, whilst 15 begin or end their route there. Most trains arrive in the morning. On Friday, so-called “Interior Minister” Arseny Avakov said that the junta wants to blockade rail service and restrict vehicle movement near Slavyansk. In addition, two wagons standing across the road block the road from Kramatorsk to Slavyansk. Despite calls from the junta to stay indoors, civilians approached this block to plead with the junta troops not to storm the city.

******

On Friday, a RIA-Novosti correspondent reported that Right sector militants landed from a helicopter on the outskirts of Slavyansk, in a railway crossing on the outskirts. A junta unit with about 10 armoured vehicles are already there. Local residents forming a “live chain” blocked the way to Slavyansk.

Editor:

This is disturbing. The Right Sector is the most feral of the Galician Uniate gangs. These people are the true descendants of the UPA filth of the VOV… civilian deaths mean nothing to them. This is evil… and the USA cackles in glee at it (especially, the Republican Party).

On Friday, opolchenie sources told RIA-Novosti that foreigners are taking part along with junta forces in the attack on Slavyansk, saying, “When using radios, we’ve heard English several times on the air. This is direct proof of the participation of foreigners in the retaliatory operations against Slavyansk”. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) repeatedly voiced its concern about the involvement of agents from the American private security firm Greystone in the Ukrainian crisis. It also pointed up the buildup of foreign forces in the Ukraine. Last month, Moscow said that it had reports that implicated some 150 Greystone mercenaries in a crackdown on protesters in the eastern Ukraine.

In an interview with RT TV last week, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, “There were reports, as you know, that several hundred [agents from] the private Greystone military organisation were detected in the Ukraine, coming from the USA. We’d like to investigate this. We raised this with our American colleagues. They said they had no knowledge of this going on and they said they’d approached Greystone itself and that they denied this. We’d like to really be certain of who is doing what because there have been so many ‘distortions of reality,'” he added.

Greystone Ltd. denied reports of sending its personnel to the Ukraine; last month, Greystone PR flack Tiffany Anderson told RIA-Novosti, “While Greystone has the ability to deploy world-class security staff and trainers anywhere in the world, the Company doesn’t currently, nor do we have any plans to, send personnel to the Ukraine”.

On Tuesday, Konstantin Dolgov, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Commissioner for Human Rights, told RIA-Novosti, “Once again, the reports about foreign mercenaries in this operation raises a grave issue of external interference in Ukrainian affairs and the role of the West in provoking this situation instead of sending the necessary limiting signals to the Kiev authorities, instead of encouraging them to rein in all those unbridled extremists and radical nationalists”.

Editor:

The word of Anglo-Americans, especially, those in government, media, or the intel apparat, is worthless. “Winning is the only thing”… Amerikantsy have no honour… you forget that at your peril.

Opolchenie in Slavyansk, besieged by junta troops, are bracing for assaults due tonight. Reinforcements from throughout Donetsk Oblast are heading for Slavyansk to help the town’s defenders, Nikolai Solntsev, one of the leaders of the Eastern Front social-patriotic movement, told reporters, “We have information that the most active phase of this operation is scheduled to begin in the late evening of 2 May. There will be a major turning point in the people’s liberation struggle this evening. All our forces are now concentrated on Slavyansk. The situation in the town is very tense. Our opolchenie volunteers are in combat. Large numbers of fighters are on their way to reinforce them. It’s important that Slavyansk’s people stand up to defend their town”.

******

On Friday, junta chieftain Aleksandr Turchinov said in a statement posted on his website that three junta soldiers died and seven more were wounded in the fighting near Slavyansk. Turchinov claimed that the opolchenie “sustained considerable losses, with many killed and wounded”. He claimed that the junta “seized all fortified localities and check points, blocking it completely. The attack is underway”.

Editor:

Note that “Pastor” Turchinov didn’t post this on an official website… one wonders why. I think it’s because many permanent officials despise the junta… and the junta knows it. I wonder how the Russians get word of ALL junta movements…

On Friday, at least four men died killed in running battles between pro-Russian and pro-junta activists in Odessa, and the trades-union building in the city centre was set on fire. According to the First National TV Channel, three of the four clash victims died from gunshot wounds. Local media quoted police spokesman Tatiana Khmelnitskaya as saying that three policemen were wounded, including deputy chief of the Odessa police Dmitri Fuchudzhi. Apart from that, the clashes injured three journalists.

A Rossiya-24 television correspondent reported that junta units began storming opolchenie positions in Kramatorsk in Donetsk Oblast. He said that fighters told him about the assault, and that they took wounded people to hospital. Volunteers arrived at Kramatorsk hospitals to care for wounded people. Local residents helped give first aid to the wounded. Fighting also resumed in Slavyansk a few hours ago.

******

On Friday, Denis Pushilin, the Donetsk People’s Republic’s Co-Chairman, told a press conference that the date for a referendum on sovereignty of the Donetsk Oblast hadn’t changed; it’d proceed as planned on 11 May. He announced the question for the referendum “Do you support the declaration of independence of the Donetsk People’s Republic? Yes or No”. A referendum would take place also in Lugansk Oblast on the same date. Pushilin noted, “A referendum is the only way to settle the problem and make the entire world know what’s happening here. The junta used about 20 helicopters in Slavyansk, and the opolchenie shot down three of them. The junta forces left a wounded pilot at the site. Unfortunately, there’s bloodshed. It’s a big mistake. The junta is doing everything to unleash a civil war. We wait for an assault every day. The Right Sector is present. All (Donetsk Oblast residents) are determined. Nobody intends to retreat”.

Editor:

For years, Uniate/schismatic slimeballs have called us “Moskali”, “katsapi”, “barbarians”… and we’re supposed to smile or they scream “hate speech”. Well, kiss my ass, Uniates… I’m tired of it all. I’m tired of your lies… especially, how you purloin Cossack imagery (they hated (and hate!) the Unia with a particular passion) and how you lie about the Golodomor… you shits were in Poland, and you didn’t suffer at all! Not one little bit… but you milk it for status as a “victim”… what hypocritical and lying bastards! As the poster said, “We’re NOT OK with it! We ARE Moskali!”

BMD

******

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) stated, “The tragic events in Odessa on 2 May, in which, according to reports, 38 people died and 50 were injured, are viewed in Moscow as the result of the criminal irresponsibility of the Kiev leadership in indulging insolent nationalist radicals, including the Right Sector, who stage a campaign of physical terror against supporters of federalization and real constitutional changes in the Ukrainian society. We categorically condemn it”.

Editor:

This is the strongest-possible diplomatic language… it’s almost a precursor to intervention.

After a battle near the entrance to Kramatorsk Friday evening, the city hospital reported 10 wounded and one dead. Earlier, reports said that after the attack in Kramatorsk, the number of injured and dead was in the dozens and they were taken to hospitals in Kramatorsk and Slavyansk. In an area between the two cities, in Yasnogorki, unarmed civilians blocked a column of between 10 and 14 armoured vehicles and other equipment. After dark, the junta forces opened fire with tracer bullets from avtomats. Doctors told RIA-Novosti, “We received 10 injured with bullet wounds. There are seriously injured and some with lighter wounds. At least one woman (aged 36), an activist, is among them. Unfortunately, one died”.

******

Early Saturday morning, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) called on Kiev to show whether there are Russians among the dead from a fire in Odessa, otherwise, it’d consider the tragic event as a new attempt to blame everything on Russia. Ukrainian media claimed that 15 people who died in Odessa were Russian citizens, who were allegedly participating in protests.

Konstantinov: It’s Time to Return the Crimea to Where it Belongs… As a Part of the Russian State!

_____________________________                                                            

Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea (VS ARK) said, “The time has come when we can fix the injustice that occurred 60 years ago and return the Crimea to where it belongs… as a part of the Russian state. The motherland is waiting for us. If we make the right choice, it’ll help if we do our best to adapt ourselves to our homeland’s norms. We’ve already established the necessary programmes for students, state employees, and retirees, to protect the interests of our citizens and allow them to avoid losses during the transition. We’re ready to help the central government of the Russian Federation and the Russian regions in accomplishing this. By rejoining Russia, Crimeans will finally be able to look confidently into the future. However, let’s focus on the main thing… we have a historic opportunity: we’ll always be Crimeans, we’re not going anywhere, but we’re going back home… to Russia. Let’s not miss it!”

Sevastopol Cops Nick Armed Radical… Provocateurs Halted at the Border… Kiev Junta Steals Money Collected in the Crimea for Social Payments

00 Crimea. 10.03.14

______________________________

Police sources told RIA-Novosti that cops in Sevastopol arrested a young man with a Makarov pistol, who opened fire on druzhinniki in Gagarin Raion last night, but there were no injuries. The cops told us that the gunman came from Ivano-Frankovsk with three accomplices, saying, “The suspects rented an apartment in the city, where we found drugs, firearms, and edged weapons. They told us that they got the weapons in Kiev, where they took an active part in clashes with police”. He added that the perps carried anti-Russian propaganda material to Sevastopol. At present, the cops are interrogating the suspects to investigate their contacts.

******

An anonymous Ukrainian security source told RIA-Novosti that Ukrainian radicals are preparing provocations on the Crimean border with the Crimea, timed to coincide with the all-Crimea popular referendum on 16 March. The source said, “There are reports that Ukrainian radical groups are preparing provocations on Crimean border timed to coincide with the popular referendum on 16 March”.

******

Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea (VS ARK), told reporters in Simferopol that the all-Crimea popular referendum slated for 16 March would take place without any provocations, saying, “Today, we completely control the situation on the peninsula. We don’t foresee any provocations. We have enough forces to maintain order. There won’t be any provocations, let’s hope that no one even wants to commit them”.

******

On Monday, Fyodor Bondarchuk, director, producer, and actor, and member of the ruling council of the United Russia faction, said, “It’s necessary to invite a many observers to confirm the results of all-Crimea referendum in the Crimea, so that no one doubts that the outcome is the will of the Crimean people. For me, I think that the results of the referendum are clear. However, for the international community to find it 100 percent legitimate, having observers would be of great help”. Bondarchuk believes that the Crimea always gravitated toward Russia, and Moscow should support this aspiration, saying, “The only thing that I’m worried about is that Ukrainian propaganda would distort the results of the referendum. Therefore, we must do everything to ensure the legitimacy of this referendum through having international observers present”. He said that it wouldn’t surprise him if the international community wouldn’t accept the results of the referendum, noting, “The fact that they couldn’t admit it isn’t a revelation for me, because you can recognise that it doesn’t fit into their philosophy of a New World Order. However, again, I think it most necessary for us to make the process as open as possible”.

******

A source in the Self-Defence Forces of the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea (ARK) said that Ukrainian radicals staged a provocation near the border village of Chingar. He told us that, at this moment, Ukrainian radicals are staging provocations in the village, saying, “Several dozen men and women lay down on the road, trying to make it seem that they were blocking a military vehicle from crossing the Ukrainian border. The ARK Self-Defence Forces hope that the media won’t fall for this provocation. The ARK government also thinks that the actions of these Ukrainian radicals are a provocation”.

******

Aleksandr Bochkarev, a commander of the People’s Militia of the ARK, told RIA-Novosti by telephone that a second draft of volunteers, about 40 people, took the oath of allegiance to the ARK in Simferopol. At present, about 1,500 personnel are in the ARK Self-Defence Force. The first group of volunteers swore allegiance to the ARK on 8 March. Bochkarev told us, “We swore in about 40 people, aged from 22 to 50. We mustered them right into the ARK militia, as all previously served in either the armed forces or the police. All are fit for military service and have the necessary military skills. We carefully checked that as they’ll be carrying arms”. Bochkarev said that there‘d be regular oath ceremonies in the ARK, noting, “Right now, we’re building up our armed forces. Later on, after the referendum, if we decide to rejoin Russia, we might keep on some of the guys, some might want to demob, and some won’t meet our standards”.

******

A source in the ARK Self-Defence Forces reported provocations near the border village of Chingar. Earlier Monday, a source in the ARK Self-Defence Forces stated that Ukrainian radicals staged a provocation near Chingar. They said that about 30 cars with Euromaidan decorations, with about 60-70 people inside, tried to infiltrate the ARK to try to set up a Euromaidan there. Cossack patrols stopped them, and the radicals retreated after an argument. The ARK Self-Defence Forces are in control of the situation.

******

The Presidium of the VS ARK said that the Timoshenko junta blocked about 1 billion gryvnia (3.95 billion Roubles. 108 million USD. 121 million CAD. 120 million AUD. 78 million Euros. 65 million UK Pounds) intended for pensions, public sector wages, and social benefits. A VS ARK statement said, “Over the past four months whilst the Euromaidan rioters in Kiev ‘peacefully’ rallied, Crimeans worked to build up the budget. In ‘gratitude’, the junta blocked our accounts in Kiev, locking up no less than a billion gryvnia Crimeans earned lawfully”. The Presidium of the VS ARK declared that this was a ploy to disrupt the scheduled 16 March all-Crimea popular referendum on the status of the ARK, saying, “The purpose of this action is to put us on our knees, to deprive us of our livelihood, stealing the wages of nearly 200,000 people and leaving 180,000 families without child benefits”. The VS ARK intends to challenge the blocking of accounts in court and recover the money “shamelessly stolen by Kiev”. However, the VS ARK promised that all it would see to it that it paid all social benefits and public sector wages in full and on time {no doubt, with Russian money: editor}.

Editor’s Note:

The White House is expostulating over the referendum. Kiss my ass, Jay Carney. You’re a ridiculous acolyte of Brzeziński… you’ve swallowed his White Polish lies whole without demur. Are you aware of what his father abetted? Did he tell you about the 150 Orthodox churches destroyed by the Beck fascists? Then again, you accept Joe Biden… whose mentor was an Ustaša priest from Croatia. In short, your outrage is hypocritical, selective, without foundation, and specious. The only thing that you care about in life is your comfortable existence amongst the District well-heeled… I’d say that patriotism and service never entered your pointy little head. Let’s consider the source… Jay Carney’s a PR flack… such sorts believe in nothing but their pay-packets.

Yet, rest easy… the USA can’t do much. It has no military forces to send; the troops are war-weary, and they’d rebel at one more pointless oligarch war. It has no money to spend; the government wasted it all on useless wars of aggression fought on tick so as not to discomfit the affluent effluent (Jay Carney’s preferred companions). In short, the USA is a “Gummi Löwe”, a Rubber Lion that roars and roars, but can’t do a single thing. That’s good, kids…

Oh, one last thing… there’s very little solid news coming out of junta-controlled areas. I think that they control next to nothing… the armed forces aren’t paid… workers aren’t getting their wages… pensioners aren’t getting their allotments. If that isn’t a picture of a rapidly declining kleptocracy in free fall, I don’t know what it is.

Russia to Subsidise Increase in Crimea Budget if the ARK Rejoins Russia… Crimea Refuses Talks with Illegitimate Timoshenko Junta… Ukrainian Junta Fucks its Own Soldiers, but Coddles Oligarchs

00 vladimir konstantinov. crimea. russia. 10.03.14

______________________________

Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea (VS ARK), said that the budget of the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea (ARK) would increase if the ARK rejoined Russia, saying, “Compensation and payment of salaries to state employees, which are now set to Ukrainian standards, would follow the standards current in the Russian Federation. As this is a larger figure, we’d have to reset our budget. We received assurances from Russia [on aid to help us do this]. Frankly, we didn’t expect them to do this for us. The budget of the Crimea would increase more than 100 percent; we’d have to do this in late March. At its next plenary meeting, the VS ARK will prepare all necessary documents”.

Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the VS ARK, said that public sector wages in the ARK would increase if the ARK rejoined Russia, saying, “Our state employees such as teachers, headmasters, health workers, soldiers, police, and procurators, all of them, would receive from 2.5 to 4 times more money in their paycheques”.

Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the VS ARK, told reporters on-air in a broadcast on state TV that the years that the Crimea was part of Ukraine, were a time of struggle for its people, as they wanted independence of Kiev and cherished their Russian cultural identity, saying, “We held a referendum in 1991; we voted for independence. At first, foreign observers supported us, then, they went back on their word, so, we didn’t become free. They left us at the mercy of the Ukraine; the Rada took away our powers. All our 22 years in the Ukraine has been a struggle for independence and for our identity; it’s been a struggle for our language, for our culture, for our heroes”.

On Sunday, the ARK government ruled out negotiations with the illegitimate Timoshenko junta. Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the VS ARK, said in an interview to a local TV station, “The incumbent authorities are absolutely illegitimate, they seized power with guns, knives, and baseball bats. Whilst they’re in office, there’ll be no dialogue, not only with them, but also with the rest of the country. They should give explanations to the people, disarm their gangs, and hold fair and open elections. Then, the ARK would engage in dialogue with a lawful government in the Ukraine”. The government, which hosts a major Russian naval base, considers the junta in power in Kiev illegitimate as it deposed the legitimately elected President of the Ukraine in a violent putsch late last month. On Thursday, the VS ARK decided to secede from the Ukraine and formally petitioned the Russian Federation to accept them as a federal subject. An all-Crimea popular referendum is due on 16 March. On Saturday, Konstantinov said that if the vote in the referendum approved the decision to join Russia, they could complete the process “in about a month”.

On Sunday, UNIAN reported that Arseny Yatsenyuk, “Prime Minister” of the illegitimate Timoshenko junta, said that he’d travel to the USA next week for talks with top US officials {he’s going to get orders from Nuland and secret gelt (hidden from the US Congress) from his Langley puppeteers: editor}. On Sunday, Yatsenyuk told the junta “cabinet” that his deputy would chair the next meeting on Wednesday “as I must travel to the USA for Ukrainian settlement talks at the highest level” {translation: “I must go to Washington to kiss Obama’s naked ass, so that the Americans keep the secret goodies and advisors coming, otherwise, the real people here would impale us all on fenceposts”: editor}. This is Yatsenyuk’s first visit to the USA since he became the head of government in the illegitimate Timoshenko junta, after it took power in a violent putsch on 22 February. He visited Brussels last week to win diplomatic backing from EU leaders in the standoff with Russia over the Crimea, a majority ethnic Russian region that refuses to recognise the junta that seized power from the legitimately elected Yanukovich government, and which seeks to rejoin Russia {the Crimea and Novorossiya are NOT “Ukrainian”… the USSR placed them in the Ukrainian SSR to knacker Ukrainian nationalism from the western backwoods: editor}.

On Sunday, a Volgograd Oblast government source told RIA-Novosti that a lorry convoy with about 30 tons of humanitarian aid went to the Crimea from Volgograd, saying, “We packed the lorries with food, clothing, tents, and various equipment worth over two million roubles (55,000 USD. 61,000 CAD. 60,700 AUD. 40,000 Euros. 33,000 UK Pounds). Oblast Governor Sergei Bozhenov said that this convoy wouldn’t be the last humanitarian aid shipment out of Volgograd,saying, “We’re going to be sending another convoy to the Crimea soon”. Veterans, members of public groups, Cossacks, and bikers escorted the first convoy.

Betcha that there’s at least one VOV vet in the convoy (most are probably Afgantsy)… I’ll also betcha that if there are any VOV codgers amongst them, those old coots are the LEADING rabble-rousers! They’re passing the jug and firin’ up the crowd (after all, one DOES have to “wet down” a brotherhood… that’s the time-honoured Russian way).

On Sunday, Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the VS ARK, said in a statement posted on the VS ARK official website that the ARK exhausted all avenues of amelioration to have a reasonable status within the Ukraine, and after the putsch in Kiev, the ARK had no one with whom to negotiate. In this situation, the upcoming 16 March all-Crimea popular referendum gives the chance to return to Russia. He said, “The ARK exhausted all possibilities to have a reasonable status within the Ukraine. Furthermore, if we were to stay under the rule of the Ukrainian state, they threaten us with not only vilification and discrimination based on cultural and ethnic lines, but also with the most literal physical destruction. That’s why we came to our decision, which the overwhelming majority of the VS ARK voted for, which we ask you to confirm at the all-Crimea popular referendum on 16 March… we need to enter the Russian Federation as a federal subject. However, the main thing is that we have a historic opportunity… we wish to remain Crimeans… we’re adamant on that, we’re not going anywhere, so we want to go back home to Russia. We leave the final choice up to you, so, we included in the referendum another option, of staying in the Ukraine, albeit with enhanced autonomy”.

ARK government sources told RIA-Novosti that Ukrainian military personnel who swear allegiance to the ARK would get the same social benefits enjoyed by RF military personnel if the all-Crimea popular referendum results in the ARK joining the Russian Federation as a federal subject. Our source said, “An absolute majority of the ARK government agrees with this position. The social benefits enjoyed by RF security forces are higher than those of the Ukrainian forces. For instance, they’d get a free apartment, free healthcare, and a higher salary. For instance, a Russian lieutenant receives an average salary of 1,500 USD (54,700 Roubles. 1,670 CAD. 1,660 AUD. 1,080 Euros. 900 UK Pounds), his Ukrainian counterpart receives only a fifth of that”. He said that a particularly acute problem in the Crimea is providing servicemen with housing, and in this respect, they can count on help from the ARK authorities, noting, “In May, in Sevastopol, we’ll have buildings ready for occupancy in Cossack Bay, built specifically for the military. Military personnel in the new housing estates would receive about 3,000 apartments”.

On Sunday, Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the VS ARK, told reporters in Simferopol that Russian regional authorities are providing financial help to the ARK, saying, “We’re receiving help from all federal subjects of the Russian Federation. This money is readily available, so we’re able to resolve all our financial problems”.

An anonymous source in the Timoshenko junta in Kiev, referring to a report by “acting Defence Minister” Igor Tenyukh, told RIA-Novosti said that Ukrainian military personnel in the Crimea weren’t paid for over a month, and it’s not clear whether the new budget would cover that shortfall. The source told us, “At the closed part of the meeting, Tenyukh (the “acting Defence Minister”) reported that the morale of the forces in the Crimea is poor, a mutinous mood is growing, and desertion is on the rise. The troops haven’t been paid for over a month, and there’s a shortage in rations”. Our source told us that the junta is desperately trying to regain the trust of the troops.

Sergei Aksyonov, Chairman of the Government of the ARK, told RIA-Novosti that the ARK would remain multilingual… it’d use Russian and Crimean Tatar; it’d use all languages of all nationalities living in the ARK, including Ukrainian. All nationalities would be able to foster their language. He stated, “In practical terms, we use two languages in most everyday situations… Russian and Crimean Tatar. Naturally, everyone would be able to foster their own language, in no way do we intend to limit linguistic toleration to Crimean Tatar. Multilingualism in our republic… that’s a given”.

Sergei Aksyonov, Chairman of the Government of the ARK, told RIA-Novosti that all members of the Ukrainian forces in the Crimea can choose to continue to serve in units loyal to the ARK, or, the ARK would return them to their native area. Earlier, the ARK Cabinet of Ministers reported mass desertions of Ukrainian servicemen serving in the peninsula to units loyal to the ARK local authorities after the violent putsch in Kiev. Aksyonov said, “Crimeans, and residents of other regions can safely serve in our armed forces. Everyone who doesn’t wish to remain in the Crimea, of course, they’re free to return to their native area”. The ARK authorities also guaranteed payment of all military pay, no matter whether the soldier involved is loyal to the ARK or not. Aksyonov assured us, “They’re all soldiers… we don’t care if they went over to our side or not… we guarantee them that all would receive the pay due to them. We don’t care what the Minoborony Ukrainy says. All military personnel who want to leave in peace, we’ll allow them to leave, without hassle and without threats, to leave the ARK and go back to their native places”. However, the ARK authorities would act with the full force of the law if there were a threat of soldiers loyal to the junta using weapons. Aksyonov said, “Of course, if there are cases of incitement to riot, and, particularly, if some use weapons, we’d initiate criminal proceedings”. The ARK government estimates that about there were 10,000 Ukrainian servicemen in the ARK. Aksyonov said, “of course, this data is already outdated, as the many military personnel have permanently transferred their allegiance to the ARK”. Currently, the ARK is forming its first military units, as well as security forces, as well.

Sergei Aksyonov, Chairman of the Government of the ARK, told RIA-Novosti that the ARK doesn’t intend to carry out reprivatisation of Crimean economic assets if they enter the Russian Federation as a federal subject after the 16 March all-Crimea popular referendum. He said, “I assure you, we won’t allow reprivatisation. We guarantee this”. This means that the ARK authorities intend to take over all enterprises exploiting the peninsula’s natural resources. Aksyonov said, “This would affect energy sector businesses and companies associated with mining. Energy and mineral resources belong to the people of the ARK. All state-owned enterprises associated with energy resources are the property of the ARK. If there’s a positive outcome to the referendum, business will carry on as usual. If the Crimea becomes part of Russia, we expect that we’d have a preferential status, possibly, we could form a free economic zone here”.

Sergei Aksyonov, Chairman of the Government of the ARK, told RIA-Novosti that the ARK government is preparing alternative sources of electric and water supply, if the Kiev junta cuts them off, even though they have no grounds for doing so. He said, “We’re working on anti-crisis measures, involving our Russian colleagues. What should we do if they cut off the electricity? From a legal point of view, the Ukraine has no reason to cut us off… we don’t owe them anything for gas or for water or for light. From an economic point of view, in a legal sense, we don’t have any problems”. Nevertheless, Aksyonov doesn’t rule out that the ARK authorities have to prepare to discuss the problem of an energy cut-off, saying, “if they do cut us off, if they want to shut down our power grid… they’d just harden Crimean opposition against them, it’d bring their standing to a dead-end. We have options, including help from our (Russian) colleagues to ensure that Crimeans have no shortage of electricity, of water, or of heat”.

Sergei Aksyonov, Chairman of the Government of the ARK, in an interview with RIA-Novosti, said that Ukrainian military personnel who would like to go over to the ARK side, but their commanders threatened them with criminal prosecution and even violence. He said, “Most of the soldiers in the units stationed in the Crimea are locals, they’re from the Crimea. Regularly, soldiers and officers tell us that senior officers, who’re mainly from the Western Ukraine, threaten them. They want to join us now, but they fear repression”. Aksyonov, basing his statements on military sources, said, “as far as the military’s concerned, I’m sure that after the referendum on 16 March the rate of Ukrainian soldiers coming over to our side will be much faster. Many commanders say, ’If you decide to go to Russia, we’ll raise the white flag and disarm’”.

Editor’s Note:

The junta is falling to pieces. It hasn’t paid its soldiers in a month and it’s appointed commissars, as it doubts their loyalty. Yatsenyuk is going to the USA on Wednesday… is he going to ask for asylum on Thursday? Also, note that the ARK nationalised oligarch holdings in the ARK… that’s one of the REAL reasons for the American hostility… the people are hosing down “libertarian” crapitalists… and the Republican Party won’t tolerate that. No wonder John McCain and Marco Rubio support the junta so vociferously… they’re afraid that American people might wake up to the fact that Republican-backed crapitalists are fucking them, too.

If you support the junta, you support sheer evil… and that’s that.
