Christmas Prayer for Donbass

Christ Jesus We Send This Christmas Prayer
Finally from me, my Christmas greeting to all of you. All who have lent their precious time to fighting for freedom against Kiev’s thugs. The lying junta of Ukraine are firing random mortar shells into communities consisting primarily of elderly. Ukrainian forces drunk, out of control. In my view it’s imperative we support Russia in her determination to make the USA & EU back down from their aggression. Who knows what 2016 will bring? We must keep up the pressure on the USA @NATO & @EU to halt their aggression against #Russia. And the complicit & compliant prostitutes @Amnesty @HRW & @OSCE who pretend to be unbiased but are in fact agents of the #US @StateDept. Kiev MUST be defeated. It’s crimes against humanity MUST be exposed. It’s drunken thug army MUST be made to leave the #Donbass. The relatives of all those who @Poroshenko’s scum army murdered MUST have their chance to spit in the killers’ faces. @Guardian @BBC @CNN. We MUST see an end to #Ukraine’s specious lies, propaganda and slanderous remarks about a #Russia that has shown integrity throughout. Kiev MUST be defeated. It’s crimes against humanity MUST be exposed. It’s drunken thug army MUST be made to leave the #Donbass. The people of #Donetsk, #Lugansk & elsewhere in the #Donbass MUST be left in peace to love #Russia as they have always done.

Alexander Zakharchenko with residents

On December 17, the Head of the People’s Republic of Donetsk Alexander Zakharchenko handed the keys and documents of the first houses built in the framework of the reconstruction program after shelling by the APU [UAF – Ukrainian Armed Forces].

The first in a new home and moved in are residents from Debalcevo and Uglegorsk. During the presentation of the keys, the Head of State noted that in Donetsk People’s Republic will be re-built and restored everything destroyed by punitive [battalions].

The first phase of the rehabilitation program involves the construction of 111 housing new “turnkey” houses in Debaltsevo, featuring Uglegorsk, miner, Zugres. Currently, 100% ready are 30 houses. The stage of readiness of the rest is 99%. These objects are the final cosmetic work. In addition, the new housing installed plumbing, heating system, radiators, windows, entrance and interior doors. Footage of buildings is determined by the number of residents registered in the destroyed houses.

Fully complete construction is planned for the end of the year. After visiting the new home and communicating with Alexander Zakharchenko Novoselov made a number of organizational lessons. In general, the Head of the Republic appreciated the quality of houses built and the work done on 4+.

slavdec18y“It’s good that the house built in the period of two and a half months. Well, that was able to build a home at all, no matter what. But I’m pretty picky critic, so my rating: 4+. With builders, we will discuss it separately. But this phase of recovery has shown us what we can do, pointed to errors and omissions, which we try to avoid in the future,” said Alexander Zakharchenko.

Residents of new homes are happy. They recall with horror the days of shelling by the APU [UAF], the days of the occupation. Debalcevo resident Olga Shvedchenko says that on the day when a shell hit their house, they were lucky – if you can call it luck – no one was home, so they stayed alive.

“The house was burning for two days, it was impossible to enter. I thought I was to remain homeless, but thanks to Alexander – we have not given up. The house is built in such a short time. At the same time did everything for free. Many thanks. Yes, soon it will be difficult, because with the housing had been destroyed and all our belongings. But we can live with – most importantly, that there is no war,” said Olga Shvedchenko.

slavdec18xDebalcevo Uglegorsk and more than any other city of Donetsk People’s Republic suffered during the fighting. Uglegorsk was destroyed by 90%, Debalcevo – 80%.

As the mayor of Uglegorsk Oleg Neledva [said] today residents are beginning to return to his hometown. If immediately after the release of the Ukrainian Uglegorsk occupiers its population was about 4 thousand people, today this figure has almost doubled – 7500 residents. In the spring of 2016 in the Donetsk People’s Republic will continue the construction of housing destroyed by shelling the APU, the next stage will be built 450 houses of the private sector.

Pavel Dremov, March 8, 2015

Dremov: Heroism – is such a word, you know, streamlined. Even heroism of civilians: those in Pervomaisk not escaped, did not leave, but remained under all bombing – it is also heroism. Just go to work, to bake bread for the people, when you shoot – the same heroism. Heroism – we have a fighter Sasha ‘Round “had” on the side “of the family lives … lived. This year, in February, first shot his father, then his mother. They shot just at the Lisichansk checkpoint, dragged out of the car and shot because blood relatives here. He continues to serve – it is also heroism.

Heroism – when people are standing with machine guns and tanks against them. When one party performs Minsk agreement removes heavy weapons and tanks sees in front of himself. But continues to serve, knowing that all their heavy weapons will not work earlier than two hours, and strong opponents fit in fifteen minutes. Still, all are at their posts. This is also heroism. In fact, heroism – it is to be a person in a difficult situation. If you do not win it’s all here: meanness, fear, envy and all the rest, you’ll be a hero unique. Heroes – they are ordinary people from ordinary people completely – they are not there some outstanding. Here there are heroes who simply give themselves fully service work. Even a mother who raises five children, – a hero. Heroism – the concept is very streamlined, very large. And we have a land of heroes. We have those, thank God, very much.

Question: I’ve been watching that now at the forefront of the LC mainly Cossacks, huh?

Dremov: Well, it happened. Yes.

Question: But why did this happen?

Dremov: Well, part of the Cossacks entered the so-called BTRO – a territorial defense battalions. Some, like our regiment, for example, have become part of the People’s Militia LC. And so it has turned out that the Cossacks now really are everywhere at our best, not because they are any otchayduhi not value their life in any case. Just their main task has been for centuries – to protect the homeland, defend the country and to keep their land. And to date. That’s when we Cossack regiment went to the police LC, we are partly preserved their customs, their own rules, but we do all the orders of the housing. Also we are on the front line, to perform tasks and participate in all exercises, and so on. D. Well, the Cossacks – they have been, are and will be.

Question: And what is now the hottest sectors of the front, where the Cossacks are we?

Dremov: Well, here you see the bold, again, Misha “Chechen” BTRO. They are under the Cossack village of Lugansk. It is for Luhansk. Bold – it is near Trehizbenki. Here, close it – gold, Trinity. Just recently, in spite of a full ceasefire, fired and Day, and the Diamond, this suburb Stakhanov, and by the Cossacks, who are at eighteenth BTRO at BTRO Bryanka, all of them were being fired not only from the mortars, but and heavy weapons. The most paradoxical: Minsk agreement, that’s all nice. And there are such attacks that have mortar nobody believes heavy weapons. Mortar 120 mm, I mean. Shoot and with 152 mm. You know, for the glory of the Cossacks did not do it, they do their job, to protect the homeland.

Not for the glory of it all done something for someone else. That, perhaps, the children go to school on September 1, so that later, probably the same Cossacks could live in peace, take the children to school, go to work quietly. In order to do this, not in order to become famous. To just lived quietly at home, that’s all.

Question: How often clashes, here, for example, Stakhanov – Pervomaisk?

Dremov: Well, actually ezhenochno. We like the OSCE Mission to bed, so the fun begins. They occur in different places. The area of responsibility of the regiment big enough. The shelling could be from gold and from Popasnaya and from the Trinity. Quite often carried out acts of provocation: drives up their heavy equipment – BMP2, not so heavy, thirty, kopeck piece, shell position and go. We sometimes can not even fire back for one simple reason: there is an agreement, an agreement, there is an order in the end. Quite often, the enemy starts firing, using this. And on certain days the enemy had information that we were given orders not to respond. They fired at us with impunity and left.

Question: And for what purpose do they do it? For what purpose is being a constant fire on cities, on the Cossacks on civilians?

Dremov: Well, first of all, it is the spirit of demoralization understand … do not like any soldier, when you shoot, and you can not answer. This is to undermine from within the army first. According to the population on mirnomu- displease. They say that because of you we are constantly on fire. In fact, all perfectly see that no one is going to perform in Minsk agreement, at least the Ukrainian side – that’s for sure. About any withdrawal of troops can be no question, they, on the contrary, here the troops pulled. Poroshenko not hesitate to say on television that he was grateful to the truce, he had to re-equip the army, to repair and build new shelves. And I assure you that the public looks at it and smiles. There was a case in October last year with the OSCE mission in Frunze. We lie to them under fire Ukrainians. And representatives of the OSCE, Petrak from Bulgaria, calling the focal point: “Why did you shoot?”. Those saying they do not shoot. Yes, I say I’m lying, you will shoot me. On 10 minutes the shelling, he called back and asked, “You left?”. He is standing next to me, said: “Yes!”. Immediately after his “yes” starts pounding again. I ask him: why are you in the reports do not specify it? He says that all states in reports. But what gives our head of the OSCE mission, he says, our records very nearly the same. Here it would like to draw attention. Wrong is everything.

Question: What do you think, what is it all going? That is the result: a strange alignment of a strange war, where one party performs the Minsk Agreement, and the second – no. What is this? Besides that the Donbass again become part of Ukraine, or, on the contrary, full-scale war, or to the Transnistria scenario?

Dremov: I do not want to Transnistria scenario as, in principle, and do not want to, and full-scale war, but back in Ukraine, we do not have roads. There is a number of reasons. Let’s not there by the LC, the DNI, and the prying eyes look at Ukraine. The fact that it is happening now. They built the Nazi state. A little distracted. Churchill once said that in the future the most zealous Nazis will be called anti-fascists. And so it came to Kiev. They argue that Putin and Russia are building here on the basis of Hitler’s armies, and so on. D., And so on. N. In this case, the battalion “Azov” has swastikas on their sleeves, while the right sector is recognized worldwide Nazi organization, and so on. What kind of democracy can we say if, because people wore a T-shirt in Kharkov (the news recently) with the inscription “USSR”, he was beaten and torn T-shirt. For that reason he is not dressed like that? This is only the first steps, then they kill those who will not speak, do not think so. Already in full hunt for dissidents.

And waiting for us … well, probably … I’d love to have waited for the world to ukrofashisty comrades retreated to the border, gone from us, and doing it themselves, and we are engaged in their area to themselves. But if war breaks out, we are ready to respond adequately. And most likely it will have another pot once. Imagine, they have superiority in technology, superior in others, but no matter what they have started, in the end it all ends boilers, and they sit in the boilers. They even have a joke. They say on the Maidan two veterans met, and one asks the other, “You are the caldron in which he served?”. So they all will serve and boilers.

Question: You somehow interact with the civilian population? What is the reaction of the peace?

Dremov: Various. In most cases, people understand us, support. It was easier to give steel a pension, social payments, we are trying to help people. But still there are people out there … that’s what we are positively different from the Ukrainian government, we are not persecuted for his views. There are people who believe in Ukraine. Please believe me, just do not harm, do not do anything, and believe … please, it’s your right. We need to give people a bit of freedom, that’s their business. There are people who honestly believe us.

Question: I just saw a lot of people who are afraid that the militia will depart, depart from Day, go away from our border zones …

Dremov: I’ll tell you a story. Well, clearly, we are acting Regiment. He was tasked to conduct exercises. The second battalion was withdrawn Pervomaisk and goes to the landfill work battalion tactical exercises. That same evening, I come here, and here the demonstration in Pervomaisk. Like, how can you leave us? Are you leaving? No, I say, we go to the exercises. We will come. Civilians did not give us leave, said: “Stay here and protect the city.” We were forced to agree. And the battalion traveled to parts of the doctrine. People have seen all of them together with us have gone through all of this, and we are with them. Grief and joy – all together.

We hid them under the bombardments, transported and bread and water, and they helped us a lot, simple people, very much. One sat on the headquarters, there is a small room staff called one at all. December 2014. And there comes a grandmother, her 80 years probably. Only then we gave the first payment. And it brings a half liter of milk, bread and flour buns. I said to her, “Grandma, yes, it is not necessary, we have everything.” She replies: “My grandmother suffered greater grandmother is now rich, you need to eat.” That’s what I remember. People are willing to give the last, you know, just to come here is not a war, but we were able to protect them.

Pavel Dremov

Pavel Dremov, Novorossiya Field Commander

From the governments of Donetsk and Lugansk are already almost gone the pioneers – romantics who fight against oligarchs, the nuggets from the local provincial intelligentsia and small businesses. They were killed in battle or through ambushes and bombs.

On the route from Stakhanov to Pervomaisk was blown up a car, which drove Pavel “Dad” Dremov,, commander of the 6th Cossack Brigade of the 2nd Army Corps of the DNLR, that is part of Lugansk. In Lugansk. Pavell was the last of the local “nuggets” that participated in the War of Independence of Novorossiya on the first day. And until his last days, he remained one of the most outstanding representatives of the romantic, sincere direction of the war, those who were not so dear life as it is the very idea.

His car exploded when he was driving to his home Stakhanov (Kadievka) to continue celebrating his own wedding. He married a Russian journalist from St. Petersburg – it’s a common fad in war zones, there are very quick to find a life partner from military journalists, but the main celebrations were in St. Petersburg, and in his native Stakhanov assumed a solemn wedding and then a banquet in Pervomaisk. This route it was not a secret for anyone. Half of the LPR knew exactly how to follow Dremov and what machine he was riding in. And where it will stop, so that you can put a bomb in it.

Dremov was local. This is particularly important for an understanding of what was happening. The distance between the Stakhanov and Pervomaisky tiny. It’s almost a village. And Dremov was one of the first who got up there at the head of the then almost of evolving self-defense units. And he and the deceased Mozgovoy had tried to keep the largest industrial agglomeration to the north – Lisichansk – Severodonetsk. Now there is no need to disassemble, why and in what specific situation Dremov and Mozgovoy left the area and retreated to the south – to their Stakhanov, Pervomaisk and Alchevsk.

After the formation of the regular army of the disparate groups in Luhansk Dremov relatively calm perceived subordination and recognized the authority of Plotnitsky while his long time were almost as the sole dictator of several settlements, and Mozgovoy has been under mysterious circumstances killed, which is quite easy to write off the Ukrainian subversive group. Previously, they had killed the poor (Batman) and Ishchenko, as local nuggets do not fit into the general scheme of the regional administration.

For a long time Dremov has been considered almost the last of the “old” Luhansk commanders who took an independent political position. This is not quite true. No independent political position he had not. Dremov did not play politics in the form, as they understand the curators. He simply did not know how. As Mozgovoy – a poet, a provincial intellectual, who had put on camouflage suddenly, as often happens in such situations in different countries and even in different parts of the former Soviet Union.

The problem of local nuggets, and them we began to talk almost immediately after the war, it was in their complete denial of some obscure political intrigues them. Dremov and Mozgovoy were idealists and romantics to the extent that, in principle, did not understand what the game is about them and their military units. And their employees – local guys with guns – believed in them, as in the gods, not because they were pursuing any specific policy goals or rushed to the ephemeral power, but only because they were local and could lead the boys out industrial and mining towns, to get them to give them a meaning and purpose for which it is possible and necessary to fight and die.

They really thought that protect their homeland, their families, language and nation specific communities, not only from the fascists and nationalists, but also from the oligarchs different activity and importance. And if Mozgovoy really was a poet, “leftists”, communist in the best sense of the word, Dremov – rather just a local hero, “boyfriend”, with specific notions of good and evil, socialist equality, Cossack superiority and, thus, a complete lack of skills Hardware struggle.

He was quickly pushed to the margins of political life, and he replied became convict coal trade, not realizing that it is also an element of the war. He and his polutysyachny squad, the former “garrison Lysychansk” joined in the second Army Corps DPR/LPR, but a degree of independence he still persisted. And if charismatic boys from Donetsk, Moscow and the Caucasus, the commanders “Sparta”, “Somalia”, “Fifteen”, “Spaniard” and other somehow still joined in the general mainstream, then Dremov and Mozgovoy could not. For them there after relative stabilization of the front line and began the construction of a new state was unacceptable. They claimed the political presence in these processes, and when these processes become manageable unknown to them people, their opinion was, by definition unnecessary.

And you thought it would be simple? What were all born to fulfill its historic mission? Maybe so, but too many sincere people have given their lives for their ideals after these ideals were “reformatted” by people more understandable to those who took the responsibility to determine the internal policy DPR/LPR.

To impose Dremov also quite a lot of complaints, accusing including a protection racket in the same coal, and he began to write in response to a public video message, exposing a number of Cossacks in front of the camera. At some point, we have already talked about the fact that Dremov away from sin will leave the Donbass. What it is quite strange to the local natural, who is forced to leave the Donbass, and then return back when the situation becomes unpleasant and again almost critical.
Dremov belonged to the category of local, who could control the situation in individual localities, including a fundamentally important for the coal trade. In addition, we are talking about Stakhanov Ferroalloy Plant, and the status of this kind of large enterprises in the Donbass is now extremely doubtful.

Legal their affiliation is not clear, as there is no formal responsibility for its own due to a lack of understanding of the property itself.

Dremov with its very chegevaristskimi outlook on life believed that plants former oligarchs have, by definition, “belong to the people,” and that it is from a legal perspective, it is now no one understands.

Stakhanov Ferroalloy Plant has in fact belonged to him, since his party controlled the city. Where there is any action Kolomoisky – already not interesting. This is normal for this kind of history of civil wars. And so the story of the murder of Dremov it is possible to fit into the overall context of the fight against corruption, which MGB Lugansk announced all the oligarchs consecutive indiscriminately.

The governments of Donetsk and Lugansk already almost gone pioneers – romantics fight against oligarchs, of nuggets from the local provincial intelligentsia and small businesses. They were killed in battle or so here – in ambushes and bombs in cars. The first generation of nuggets eroding. That process of “nationalization”, which in the Caucasus held a dozen years in the Donbass passed a couple of months, and several lives of talented and honest people.

Dremov did not live up to 40 years. But this is the case when a person will be remembered not by the day but by deeds.


Viktor Yanukovich: Yes, I want to return to politics – Interview

Viktor Yanukovych (

Viktor Yanukovych (–

Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych gave an interview to RIA Novosti on how he assesses the actions of the Ukrainian government and the opposition, on the situation in Ukraine and its future plans.

ZV: Viktor Yanukovych, the last time we spoke with you in 2012. In Ukraine, for the past three years, many things have happened. I wonder what do you personally think about this?

VY: In 2012, when we met, Ukraine was successful state. It was the year of the Euro 2012 European Football Championship, we successfully carried out. We were building big plans then on the development of the country. We were thinking how to raise pensions, salaries, scholarships for students. While we have considered issues of development of Ukraine. We began to changes in the economy, social life. It was true.

What happened after that, in 2013 and 2014, it cannot be called otherwise than tragedy. It  was human suffering, pain, thousands of deaths. There was a tragedy that led to the division of the state, the loss of independence and, of course, the terrible grief of people. It was impossible to speak without pain in the heart. One gets the impression that the authorities of Ukraine, announcing the return of Donbass and Ukrainian calling it, are talking about territory, and not about the people living there.

By counting the military casualties, no one wants to notice that there are not only people killed by shells, but also from hunger. This is especially true of older people who were left without the current government pensions and benefits, and doomed to die. People can not receive proper medical care, medication is not enough. All this is arranged by the consequences of the blockade of Donbass Kiev authorities.

If they believe the residents of Donbass are Ukrainian citizens, what citizens are different from those of people in other regions? Why is the power of Ukrainians consider “special” and tries to put them on trial “will survive – will not survive.” People who have worked hard all my life, do not deserve such attitude.

The worst thing that happens all this on the eve of the arrival of cold weather. On the eve of the winter is necessary to make every effort to ensure the people’s warmth and everything necessary to avoid a humanitarian disaster! Most importantly there is an urgent need to repeal this “deadly” blockade, or Donbass expect a humanitarian catastrophe.

ZV: What do you think will happen to the Minsk Agreement? What are the prospects of their implementation?

VY: Firstly, I believe that today there is no alternative to the Minsk Agreement. The fact that these agreements should go into 2016 – there is also no doubt about it. Today there it is, the sixteenth year on the doorstep. And while not seen such great progress. Yes, there is a process, but [it takes place] very, very slowly. Very difficult. I think that as long as there is this rhetoric of “separatists”, “terrorists”, until after this humiliation of people, yet will not leave this division of people into “us-them”, in the class who has what kind of … It It will be very difficult for all.

ZV: What would you have done in a similar situation?

VY: I would not have allowed it. Remember in February 2014 there was the seizure of the state bodies in the Western Ukraine. I did not use force and the army against the inhabitants of the Western Ukraine, because they are also citizens of Ukraine. Their life I was supposed to protect. I sat down to negotiate with the opposition and on 21 February signed an agreement that would also endorse the Europeans. Failure to comply with this Agreement and the subsequent tragic events are fully on the conscience of the leaders of the then opposition and European countries, which has endorsed the Agreement.

To solve the current tragedy in Donbass, you need to turn to history. View examples out of similar crises in the past. I know that the subject, for example, federalism – it irritates the current government today in Ukraine has become synonymous with separatism and terrorism. Why not ask for the same United States, Germany, Switzerland to share their experiences of federalization? In any case, you need to start this dialogue, and when the situation is ripe, then go on this way. Anyway, the question of the federation, it will hang. Yes, this question is not today. Here, I agree. But that Ukraine was tomorrow, today we have to look for something that will unite the whole Ukraine.

ZV: How do you assess the current situation in Ukraine?

VY: Today, write off, as they say, the war has nothing. Today, the fog has cleared. And tomorrow it will need people who are said to serve bread, circuses have ate here so everything! The oligarchs have ‘namaydanilis. ” All life requires a completely different approach, which, incidentally, has not yet spoken. We do not see development plans in Ukraine.

ZV: As far as I remember, on the stage Maidan opposition leaders, who later became government, voiced certain plans and steps of development of Ukraine …

VY: Let’s look at what promises so generously handed out on the Maidan were met.

They demanded democracy and freedom of speech. And I ask myself a question – and that there was little freedom of speech under my presidency for the opposition? Every day, on all channels, they get as much air as they wanted. And the government does not interfere with this.

On the Independence demanded to deal with the oligarchs – is now in the hands of oligarchs even more power. At their disposal today own army and “manual” faction in parliament.

I have already spoken about freedom of speech, but I want to say once again – journalists who express opposition point of view, threatened with criminal cases, they are beaten, kept in prison, just shoot.

Journalist Ruslan Kotsaba for his statements against the mobilization for almost a year behind bars without trial! And none of the journalists and foreign fighters for the freedom of speech does not pay any attention to it. Oles Buzin cynically, in broad daylight, was shot near his home, and the suspects in his murder try to present perhaps the heroes!

People demanded to improve their well-being – as a result, Ukrainians have become three times poorer. And it was done very simply – the devaluation of the hryvnia. The Ukrainian people have become poor in three. And the oligarchs who kept their savings in dollars abroad, respectively, became three times richer. And now for a song going to buy up all of Ukraine.

After the Maidan never raise pensions and wages. How many Ukrainians with an average salary of $ 150 can not afford to go to Europe?

And the government continues to feed the people with tales of visa-free regime. They promised him enter just a few months after the coup. But this remained a promise. And I remind you that the Association Agreement with the EU, the signing of which was delayed by us in 2013 in Vilnius, had nothing to do with the visa-free regime. But all the people through the media presented differently and brought under these slogans on the Maidan.

ZV: Do you think people in Ukraine have already realized that they were deceived on the Maidan?

VY: Unfortunately, the expectations of the people on Maidan just used for personal gain. All TV channels were in the hands of oligarchs and distort what is happening on the Maidan. People are misinformed. The authorities were in dark colors, and the actions of the opposition extremely bright.

But now, the recriminations yesterday’s colleagues on the Maidan has finally made it possible for people to hear the truth more often. Even the US ambassador Payette had no time to extinguish the numerous conflicts in the Ukrainian government. The coalition openly accuses the government in its incompetence, corruption. The Prime Minister and President of lobbying the interests close to him oligarchic clans, who stood behind them since the days of the Maidan.

ZV: Can you name the names of those oligarchs who stood for the opposition, and in fact organized the Maidan?

VY: You know, I’m very cautious about this or that person to cling to someone labels. But they themselves say about it. For example, in the Austrian court Firtash said that he supported Klitschko. Kolomoisky – I know whom to support, and he also spoke about this, and so on. Today, every member of the government are the oligarchs, who can say, “pushed” to the government of his people. And it’s no secret to anyone in Ukraine.

ZV: Interestingly, while the oligarchs, what was the use of what happened on the Maidan? After all, they had already been wealthy …

VY: Well, at that time, when, as they say, “the nuts twisted quietly,” and we needed to pay taxes on time, that taxes are fair, of course, did not like the oligarchs.

Suffice it to recall a single law – on transfer payments. When this law was passed, to which he was sent? Naturally, it was a just law. Because the surplus, which was obtained at the time the largest businesses in Ukraine, which is called oligarchs, of course, they were unfair. And this law aims to somehow level the financial situation in the budget at the expense of the poor and by the rich. And we talked about this openly. It was one of the reasons.

And they, of course, needed a president obedient as they thought, which can be controlled. They have achieved this, and today the president was their colleague – one of the oligarchs. But I think that today, many of them realized that they made a mistake.

Because what happened then with the country … In fact, the government was overthrown with the help of the oligarchs, the hands of nationalists, which most talked about independence, democracy and so on.

And what have we got? We got a split in Ukraine, we have today a totalitarian power. In fact, the country now controlled curators appointed from the West. Yes, and a number of ministers today have come from other countries – not Ukrainians. Do we have your staff is not enough?

This is actually all that is said on the Maidan, almost two years ago, exactly the opposite happened. They said, will fight against the oligarchs – the oligarchs brought to power, say for an independent Ukraine – Ukraine split, put Ukraine on the management of people from other countries.

ZV: But among Ukrainian oligarchs, must have been and your friends, there were those who supported you?

VY: You know, when in power, it is known to all – all my friends are singing sweet songs of devotion and friendship. It’s not a secret. I’m not very fond of, to put it mildly, these “songs”. Quite the contrary. But such a life. In fact, they have always thought and will think only about their own interests. But this time they have miscalculated. As big mistake.

ZV: Still, in your opinion, what was the interest of the oligarchs to undermine the economy of Ukraine? Or they have other interests? Why should they be maintained Maidan?

VY: I was not wrong when I said that a strong government should all put in place. Because appetites are growing. I always jokingly said that someone “forgets about the diet.” I often carry out such work. Often or, I would say, systematically and continuously. Like – not like, as they say, I have no one looked in the mouth. You see ?! But today, when it’s all mixed up like that – they forgot about the Maidan, forget what was said there, you forget about everything like crazy. And it will end badly.

ZV: You say that “strong power should all put in place.” A number of recent detentions, arrests, perhaps, is an attempt to Poroshenko, to “put all in place …”

VY: This is just a performance that played the power to distract from the urgent problems. Law enforcers are chasing small fry, but imitating the fight against corruption. Give the people bread authorities can not – get a sight!

Give me at least one corrupt official, who received real term? It is not to be punished corrupt officials, close to the first persons of the state, it is difficult to believe that being a real fight against corruption. This everyone knows. And ordinary people about this, too, is well aware. Neither of which the fight against corruption and speech can not be. No one in this never believe. It’s all “blurry eyes.”

And how do you show the arrest Korban? Were recruited hundreds of employees of the SBU, dozens of prosecutors, Korban and then released under house arrest safely drink cognac. Today the prosecutor general’s office, controlled by Poroshenko, under the pretext of the fight against corruption is simply inter-clan fighting on the side of the President!

ZV: Returning to the corruption. You probably know that the people who come after you, said the following: that the 15 billion dollars that Ukraine has signed the contract with Russia are “bribe Yanukovych Putin.” What can you say about it?

VY: This is politicking. It’s all well aware, and in Ukraine, and I think all understand. Of course, this money has been directed to the development of Ukraine, of course, at the expense of these loans we solved a lot of questions, and, in particular, we are in the period of time agreed to a significant reduction in gas prices. While the price of gas was over $ 400 (per thousand cubic meters – ed.), And we agreed, I think, 272-275 dollars at the time. Therefore, the current government, including at the expense of these agreements, in 2014 pumped enough gas for a very cheap price at that time. And last winter 2014-2015 year. I do not know how the situation is there now, but in 2015 took place in Ukraine, including due to the fact that there was an opportunity to upload the cheapest gas in storage.

ZV: And here you are reminded of a very interesting point related to 15 billion dollars. Why did you take this credit still from Russia, not from the IMF or some other European financial institutions?

VY: So, I’ll tell you about that … We are .. I do not remember in the 20 days of November, may 23th, 2013 received a final negative response to the IMF.

There is a word “zamanuha” … All the time served cake, saying, “That’s it, we will give, give, give ….”. And we have those expectations lived for several years. But we did not agree on the conditions that were offered to us – to raise tariffs by 50%, raise the price of gas, including for the population. We did not go for it. We are looking for various ways to convince, to work at all levels. Work systematically and seemed on the verge, we agree.

Unfortunately, 23 (approximately) on November, we received a formal rejection of the IMF. We were counting on that money. We were in a very difficult situation when it happened.

Just a few days we had a CIS summit in Belarus in Minsk, and I was involved there, representing Ukraine. I asked this question to Putin: “Our situation is so complicated, I do not know how we should be, and if you have the opportunity at any condition … I would like this issue to be discussed.”

“I do not mind, please (said Putin – Ed.). Ordered the government, I Medvedev instructed the government to let work begin. If these conditions coincide with the two sides, we can resolve this question. ”
That’s all. It was very short, just a five-minute conversation on this subject.

And in December, began the negotiations with the Russian government, in December, I think, somewhere in the first decade. Our ministers, everyone who was involved in the execution of this loan, worked. Government works. In my opinion, in the 20 days of December, it was found a solution which satisfies us that does not drive us here in these commitments, which led to a deterioration in people’s lives, to the difficult situation of tariff, price increases. And I went to Moscow to make the finishing touches. Finishing touches, as always, it was the price of gas.

Hard, very difficult conversation was, as always, they are never simple. Many times I have commented on this. Since 2002, I have dealt with all these issues. Russia had for us was not so easy partner. Because they are very experienced, “toothy”, professional, and we are always prepared very seriously.

We have, you know, there was no familiarity. Russia to defend their interests, and we – his own. So we pulled the rope. And finally somewhere to find solutions. Here and on the price of gas. We agreed with the president (Putin – Ed.). He gathered all the experts, were with me all the ministers, too, and it was the last – the price of gas. And when all this has coincided – we signed an agreement and was determined schedule of financing.

ZV: However, many spoke about your over-dependence on Russia. US President Obama said recently, supposedly you were a puppet of Putin.

VY: Firstly, I’m not sure that it was he talking about me. In his speech talked about the years when he first became president – in those years in Ukraine, President Viktor Yushchenko was …

If, however, to assume that he was talking about me, then … We met with Obama several times, and during our meetings, he never raised questions about my dependence on Russia or issues of corruption in Ukraine. Moreover, we can compare the years of my presidency and now Ukraine. The role played by foreigners in the Ukrainian government then and now.

Who could have imagined at the time, for example, Foreign Minister Lavrov will arrive in the parliament and the Ukrainian parliament will begin to learn what to enact laws like this, for example, makes Nuland? Or, for example, come the Prime Minister and Medvedev will head the meeting of the government in Ukraine as it did Biden? Or, for example, I would have started to appoint ministers in Ukraine Putin, his representatives? You can imagine it was present or not ?! I tried very pragmatic work with all countries. Of course, I paid a lot of attention to our strategic partners. And among the strategic partners were Russia.

ZV: Is it worth it for that, I am referring to the appointment of foreigners to the government, blame the current government? Maybe foreigners as more experienced professionals more effectively manage the economy?

VY: The most objective evaluation of the work in the power of foreigners can only give the Ukrainians themselves. Recent opinion polls in Ukraine showed that the vast majority of people believe that their financial position in comparison with the year 2013 worsened dramatically.

I have already said that after the coup never raise salaries and pensions. Given that the hryvnia exchange rate fell by three times, almost the same prices rose. Today the average Ukrainian salary is 150 dollars, and pension – $ 50. This is the level of African countries. How can people survive getting “African” salaries at “European” prices?

ZV: But the Ukrainian authorities to explain the deterioration of the life of the need to carry out reforms that your government has not carried out …

VY: Of course it’s a lie. We must remember 2010, 2011, 2012 and see how much we spent reforms. So many reforms, but held my Government, since 2010, I am sure, I was not carried out in all the years of independence. We greatly simplify doing business, the licensing system was reorganized very much. We were just in times reduced the number of different resolutions. We have introduced the principle of a single window. I lived with these problems and we have done a lot. There were reforms that we just do not have time to bring to a logical conclusion.

Now all that is said about this last time, portrayed in such black colors. It – politicking.

Whenever you criticize your opponents, look at yourself.

Let them look over what they have done during that time. What kind of reforms do you mean? Cadge international loans, renting, as they say, national interests. Increase utility rates. Declare total privatization, then to buy the assets for a pittance.

Do the ordinary Ukrainians now, due to what the government is going to improve their lives? What are they – Poroshenko, Yatseniuk – want to develop, the Ukrainians were able to start making money and live better? What are they going to build a new Ukraine, in addition to “fence” on the border with Russia? If the government has no clear strategy of development of the economy, reform of the public can be a question ?!

Of course, the reforms that supposedly outlined now in Ukraine, they can hardly be called reform. How can reforms be called the increase in tariffs for energy, which led to a huge increase in public services? How can a pensioner who receives now 1,300 hryvnia, pay utility bills, which cost 1500-1700 hryvnia? And so on. I sometimes read online, I see how people speak out. Today, sociology shows that most people believe that the lives of people in Ukraine has become much worse. Even the famous governor of Odessa – Michael Saakashvili, who said that in order to achieve a standard of living that was under Yanukovych need 15-20 years.

ZV: And yet here I am an example. Most recently, the Government of Ukraine reached an agreement with international lenders on the part of the delay in payment of debts. According to the Ukrainian side, it will give impetus to the development of the economy in the near future.

VY: The Ukrainian government has hastened to present the alleged cancellation of 20% debt to international lenders as a victory. And in fact, this is the same as the gas contract Tymoshenko in 2009. Then, in order to six months to get cheap gas, Tymoshenko led the next 10 years the Ukrainians to buy gas at exorbitant prices.

By the way, her colleague Yatseniuk is now “seen the light” and began to blame himself Tymoshenko in the same – notoriously unprofitable signing the contract for the country.

Although Yatsenyuk already surpassed Yulia Vladimirovna and entered an even more cynical. In exchange for a 5 years grace period on debt and writing off $ 3 billion, it just robs future generations of Ukrainians. It condemns them to give for the debts of most of Ukraine’s GDP. We are talking about additional payments to foreign creditors over twenty years, anywhere from 60 to 150 billion dollars, on the basis of what will be the growth of the Ukrainian economy.

For such restructuring and Yaresko (Minister of Finance of Ukraine – ed.), And Yatsenyuk have to answer before the court more than Tymoshenko for a gas contract.

ZV: Recently published an interview in the “Ukrainian Truth” one, as they are called, mladooligarhov, Grigorishin. He is a longtime partner of Poroshenko, just in the energy sector. There, he said, a mysterious phrase, I still do not understand whether it was a joke, whether it’s true – allegedly in the trunk you Mezhyhiria brought Yatsenyuk. Can you explain it’s true or a joke?

VY: Well, I can not say anything about the trunk. But I have met repeatedly with Yatsenyuk and others.

ZV: During the Maidan?

VY: Yes. And I met with other representatives of the Maidan, and radicals, including, and not only in the presidential administration. Why? Because I was looking for a peaceful solution. I did everything to avoid bloodshed. This is my principle of life. I am deeply convinced that no power is not worth a drop of blood spilled. So I drove all the negotiations and look for ways how to peacefully resolve the conflict.

ZV: How do you assess the relationship between the president and prime minister now? What there is a conflict, what is the problem there?

VY: It is absolutely different people. And the mentality, and capabilities. Poroshenko come already rich, and Yatsenyuk just wants them to be. Therefore, they have a huge conflict of interest.

Poroshenko I know very well, as you might imagine. He came in due time, my Government Minister of Economy. After working for some time. And I know the possibility of this person. We have, in general, at that time, he worked his way to the office, there were practically no differences. It was about the economy. He has sufficient experience was, and then my principle, that should be a dialogue inside the government … Poroshenko – a strong opponent from the economic point of view. He contributed opened and weaknesses we have seen. And this dialogue is very necessary. So today, when he does the opposite, and relates to the intolerance of his opponents, and in fact can not tolerate a dialogue – it is a huge mistake. Huge mistake! And, of course, people who are now in his power … It’s very difficult to work with him.

So I do not want to judge who is right and who is wrong. But the conflict is laid. He may once have to go outside, once they are hiding it, but today we see that the coalition rages.

ZV: You said that Poroshenko abhors dialogue. Why do you think so?

VY: Ukraine has breached the fundamental balance of political forces. Before the coup opposition had sufficient powers to express their point of view. The Verkhovna Rada of them headed the committee, the vice-speaker was a representative of the opposition, they were free to hold rallies and protests.

Can we observe such a day? No. With the help of, so to speak, “a law enforcement rink” and radicals and intimidated people, and journalists, and politicians who disagree with the point of view of the authorities. Now in Ukraine dissidents killed in broad daylight, or driven to suicide.

The man who allows himself to criticize the government immediately declare “enemy of the people” or “agent of the Kremlin.” Today in Ukraine in prison may be anyone who does not follow the “general line” of the current regime. Authorities discovered using methods of political revenge initiated on trumped-up criminal charges against their political opponents. This is pure totalitarian system of power that controls everything and everyone in Ukraine.

For example, representatives of the Party of Regions “prescribed” guilty but only for what they had or have to do with this political force. We see that now the criminal prosecution is subject to one of the leaders of the Party of Regions, Alexander Efremov.

It is harassed Mayor of Kharkov Gennady Kernes. Authorities are trying to send to jail one of the best mayors of Ukraine, which recently re-vote majority of Kharkiv. This attempt on him, no one investigates!

A recent detention Helen Lucas – in fact it was actually a diversion of power from a failed attempt to arrest Korban and their pathetic attempts to show the alleged impartiality of the judicial system. However, striking cynicism with which the mother of two minor children illegally held in prison for several days, at a time when for it was timely submitted a pledge!

ZV: It is often said that in the political arena of Ukraine “opposition bloc” largely continues the line of the Party of Regions, honorary chairman of which you were up to the moment we left the Ukraine. Tell me, do you think “The opposition bloc,” the continuation of the Party of Regions, or is it an independent political force?

VY: Indeed, the majority of the “opposition bloc” – are former members of the Party of Regions. I know almost all of them quite well. But a lot of former members of the Party of Regions, now and in the Block Poroshenko! Therefore, if we talk about the Party of Regions, the answer is ambiguous. Who greatly loved power, he is now, but with a different political power has gone.

As for the “opposition bloc” … I understand that you can have different attitudes to them. And my attitude is different. But I can say one thing – even the fact that they have created a unit and went on this way now and in the current government – is a feat, bravery, can be named.

That is, they have the responsibility to tell the truth, to take responsibility to show an alternative to the current authorities. It’s good.

But, of course, if we talk about wishes, they sometimes do not have enough determination. Although I understand that, where resolution – there is repression. It does not just repression and sometimes even killing opponents. Therefore, I wish them to be more active, more concrete and more determined.

Ukraine Revolution Predicted for 2016

Experts Predict Another Revolution in
Ukraine in Spring of 2016
Autotranslated with minor editing by Quemado Institute
December 7, 2015

slavdec7tAccording to experts, During the upcoming spring in Ukraine there may occur a powerful “social explosion”. Dissatisfied with the situation in the country, people will take to the streets again. To save the situation, serious reform and a change of government officials are needed, for which the political elite is apparently not ready.

Panic Spring

“A difficult period will be in February and May 2016, when the people will have survived the winter, paying exorbitant housing prices, the economy will continue to shrink, falling incomes, and prices rise. The chance of a social explosion in this period is estimated at 60%,” Tass was told by Director of the Institute of Ukrainian politics Ruslan Bortnik.

In turn, the Ukrainian political scientist Kirill Molchanov, said Tass, expressed the view that a new “Maidan” is possible, because now there is such situation when the lower classes so on cannot live, and the top officials do not want to change anything.

“In view of what has been lost in one and a half years, and no reform has been undertaken, the credit support of the people falls, as a result, we are entering a cold winter with high utility rates, so any Maidan can begin after some daring provocation,” the expert believes.

However, according to Molchanov, excluding social in favor of another protest can play also other factors. “The turmoil may be associated with an external factor, ie a factor of Donbass and the Crimea: in view of the situation in the zone of ATO may be seething in Kiev, as the right-wing radicals are dissatisfied with the course of the president on military doctrine. We brewing a bad cocktail, where there is an economic component – there is no improvement of life in connection with the reforms, social – 30 percent of Ukrainians in poverty, and the military aspect,” he concluded.

Alarming figures

Ukrainians protest mood in the fall reached the level of “Maidan” 2013-2014. Thus, according to a recent poll conducted by the sociological group “Rating”, more than half of respondents – 53% – said they would take to the streets in case of deterioration of the social situation of people. Only 28% of respondents are willing to endure financial difficulties for the sake of peace in the country.

Anxious oligarchs

Recently, concern about possible unrest in the state expressed once part of the ten richest Ukrainians, businessman, ex-governor of the Donetsk region, Sergei Taruta, who said that prior to the economic collapse of Ukraine left for 6 to 8 months. “The economic model shows that we have half a year, a maximum of 8 months. And it provided that during this time we change something,” he said “Ukrainian Truth “.  According to him, currently the likelihood of an optimistic scenario for Ukraine is only 5%. “And in order to implement these 5%, you need to match such a large number of positive factors. But everything else – or collapse, or the freezing of economic,” says the oligarch.

The latter, he added, will entail a social explosion, as if before the people were just unhappy, but now they are “aggressive and angry.”

“If oligarchs are sitting in their luxury cars, flying on its planes and living in villas, they see that it would be a social explosion, you are likely to say that it will. Or will the collapse of the political system and social explosion,” commented on the statement Taruta Bortnik.

Reckless budget

This week the Ministry of Finance published the draft state budget for 2016, which is possible only inflame discontent with ordinary people.

According to the leader of the public movement “Ukrainian choice” Viktor Medvedchuk, the budget “establishes the state of poverty and even the extreme poverty of the majority of Ukrainians.” Thus, according to Medvedchuk, a slight increase of social standards will not improve the lives of Ukrainians. In the budget there is a minimal increase in the minimum subsistence level – by 12% from 1330 to 1496 hryvnia (about $ 57.6 – $ 64.8 at the current rate), for a total of 172 hryvnia (about $ 7.5 at current exchange rates).

However, if you examine the forecasts of inflation in 2016, it becomes clear: a real increase in social standards would not, argues Medvedchuk. “Ukrainians threatens not even poverty, but a real poverty, and their struggle for survival becomes more desperate. And the 2016 budget, in effect, the law establishes that “, – summed up the public man.

One little problem

For any social conflict, as noted Bortnik, “you need three components: public opinion leaders that are trusted by this opinion, and money, which is hyping public opinion and of the leaders in the media.” According to the analyst, Ukraine, for a social explosion is only one component – public opinion. “Leaders who have trust, no. Leaders who appear from time to time, for example, Tatiana Montyan (lawyer, public figure), the government successfully discredited. The main challenge now political strategists authorities – to prevent the creation of alternatives,” said the expert, adding that the leaders may still appear “throughout this winter.”

The monetary component of the same, according to him, depends on the goodwill of the oligarchs. “While none of the oligarchs would not risk to a direct conflict with the government, did not dare to provide media platforms and financial resources for this protest. Trying this was – from the military-political group “Privat” (co-owner is the oligarch Igor Kolomoisky), but it ended with the detention of Gennady Korban (head of the party “Dill” associate Kolomoisky) and the defeat of the political group “- he recalled.

Option salvation

Predprotestnoy way out of this situation, according to the oligarch Taruta, maybe resignation of the current government and the formation of a technical cabinet to do with politics. “Who will try to reformat the existing structure, change the ministers, but do not change the system. My understanding – for technical government composed of technocrats, whose main task – to stabilize the situation, to keep at least that is. But the probability of this is not much,” he believes.

About the need to replace the first persons indicated by the results of public opinion. Over the past six months, the level of support for the idea of ​​the dissolution of parliament and new elections of deputies increased from 34% to 47%, the idea of ​​the appointment of new presidential elections – from 31% to 43%. About high probability of formation of all necessary conditions for the early parliamentary elections in Ukraine and said Bortnik. “It is very likely collapse of the coalition and an attempt to curb the political projects of individual protest potential to play the next political cycle, so it is very likely the formation of all the conditions for early parliamentary elections,” – he said.

If a revolution, it will be spontaneous

“By the spring ratings of President fall, handling the political and administrative system, too, there are oligarchs, who will run with this drowning ship and put on a new proest on the new political leaders who provide their resources in the next political cycle”, – predicts Bortnik. At the same time, according to Molchanov, for this requires a powerful social protest provocation. “If there is any provocation in the near future, I do not rule out that everything will unwind as the events that were two years ago. As a result, it can lead not only to the “Maidan” and a big coup with great sacrifice,” he warned. The situation, according to Molchanov, “may develop spontaneously: there will be no students, tents, songs Svyatoslav Vakarchuk (leader of the group “Okean Elzy”), it will be two or three days, and the spokesman of the revolutionary masses will take the stage, the crowd itself will make someone the top,” concluded the expert.

Donald Trump Justified in Muslim 9/11 Celebration Claim

Trump 100% Vindicated:
CBS Reports ‘Swarm’ On Rooftops Celebrating 9/11

Guest Report by John Nolte

Breitbart News
December 2, 2015

Donald Trump

Donald Trump

The DC Media has spent the last two weeks attempting to destroy Donald Trump with lies. Outright lies, and they are doing so in order to protect a 14 year-old cover up. Not only have eyewitnesses and contemporaneous reports proven Donald Trump 100% correct about Muslims celebrating 9/11, a just-uncovered local CBS News (WCBS-TV in New York) report completely vindicates Trump’s claim of “thousands and thousands” of Muslims celebrating the fall of the World Trade Center.

The video below is from a September 16, 2001 news report: [See source for video.]

Just a couple of blocks away from that Jersey City apartment the F.B.I. raided yesterday and had evidence removed, there is another apartment building, one that investigators told me, quote, was swarming with suspects — suspects who I’m told were cheering on the roof when they saw the planes slam into the Trade Center. Police were called to the building by neighbors and found eight men celebrating, six of them tenants in the building.

The F.B.I. and other terrorist task force agencies arrived, and the older investigators on the task force recalled that they had been to this building before, eight years ago, when the first World Trade Center attack led them to Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, whose Jersey City mosque lies between the two buildings getting attention today. And the older investigators remember that the suspects that eventually got convicted for the first Trade Center case … lived in the building where these same eight men were celebrating the destruction that they saw from the roof. Calling this a hot address, the task force investigators ordered everyone detained.

ADDED [by Breitbart News]: People are arguing falsely that the fact that only 8 suspects were apprehended contradicts the “swarm” claim. Read it again. An “investigator” told CBS about the “swarm.” The fact that a certain number were brought into custody does not change the fact that there was a “swarm.” The obvious impression is that of the “swarm,” only eight were brought into custody.

Eight people do not swarm on all those rooftops. They “gather.” Look at the video of the rooftop and picture “swarming.” You want to get into semantics about how many people make up a swarm? But that’s not all.

You have to add up all of the contemporaneous news reports. You are Donald Trump. You are taking in all the news during that awful week. You are told by the media that “swarms” of Muslims in a known terrorist’s neighborhood were seen on rooftops celebrating 9/11. Just two days earlier you have read this in the New York Post:

Here in New York, it was easy to get angry listening to Egyptians, Palestinians and the Arabs of nearby Paterson, N.J., celebrate as they received word of the murderous attack in New York and Washington. But Mayor Giuliani (who has been tireless and magnificent in this crisis) rightly warned New Yorker-ers that is would be wrong to take their anger our on the city’s Arab and Muslim residents. Attacks on Arab-Americans in Paterson or elsewhere are utterly indefensible.

You hear radio news reports about Muslims celebrations. MTV runs a news report about Muslim celebrations. From all of those news reports, it is perfectly reasonable and nothing close to lying to put together a picture of “thousands”.

FACT: Donald Trump is now 100% vindicated.

If these celebrations did not occur, the only thing Trump did wrong was to believe the same media that is now calling him a liar — and doing so to cover up the truth about American Muslims celebrating 9/11 and their own covering up of that fact.

Numerous times I’ve suggested Trump exaggerated the “thousands” claim, and for that I apologize.
