Brothers and sisters!

information_resistance_logo_engHere’s the Summary for June 2, 2014 (for previous summary, please see Summary for May 30).

The bad news:

1. All day long, terrorists have been firing at the Luhansk Border Control unit. We haven’t yet seen effective actions by ATO forces that would silence the insurgents. It’s true that the ATO’s aviation target designation by the Border Control Service “combed through” terrorist positions outside residential areas, but this only resulted in a short-term effect. According to our data, today, those at the very “top” sanctioned the involvement of the ATO’s troops in Luhansk’s with other major forces. However, at the moment we only see “point” usage of air assets. Therefore, there is nothing to comment on yet. And in the meantime the border control servicemen are guarding their post. The day is almost over.

2. Meanwhile, Russia does everything possible to use the events in Luhansk with a vengeance to produce another series of avalanches of its permanent lies.

According to Moscow’s version, the terrorists who attacked the border control service were in fact “the National Guard” who suddenly started “sweeping” the city. Of course, with the assistance of the “Right Sector,” what would they do without it? Someone must still finish drinking the blood of the Russian babies that the Guardsmen were unable to.

Well, then there’s the usual Kremlin snot about “crimes by Ukrainian authorities against their own people.” It’s interesting, do Putin’s bloody boys from the Caucasus stand in his eyes when he ascribes to Ukraine what he himself is doing to the Caucasus?

3. Today, the press service of the Ministry of Defense once again stated what money collected by citizens for army needs will go to. And it’s hard not to become bewildered.

The fact that people feed the army with their taxes and in addition collect money in the form of donations–it’s difficult to call this normal. But as I look at the list of purchases, courtesy of the Ministry of Defense, vague doubts bite at me.

I, for example, cannot fathom how buying “naval uniforms in an amount of 3,500 sets” will help solve the main problem we are now waiting for the Armed Forces to solve, namely, to defeat the terrorists in Donbas.

Maybe the Defense Ministry is hiding something, and our Navy, headed by the “Hetman Sahaidachnyi” frigate, are sneaking towards the slagheap of Donbas through rivulets and streams at night to assist the ATO forces? If not, then the logic of such purchases is not entirely clear.

The good news:

1. Indictments against 63 people suspected of seizing the building of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration have been sent to court by the Prosecutor’s office.

This is a very timely message. Where possible, all those fans of the split up of the country should be imprisoned, and preferably as part of public court trials. Public flogging is a good example for those who haven’t yet been caught.

2. Today Mykolaiv quietly and peacefully showed the fans of running-under-the-Russian-flag their place.

Ukrainian patriots gathered in the main square of the city to prevent separatists from holding their rally calling for the end to the ATO. Patriots came to the square in vyshyvankas [traditional embroidered shirts] and wrapped in national flags of Ukraine. In their hands were posters saying “Mykolaiv is for the ATO,” “Mykolaiv is for an independent Ukraine,” “We are against Rusian occupation.”

Their opponents, in the face of Putins followers (by the way, there were only about 30 people) within a few minutes of dialogue with the patriots began to disperse quickly.

So, it would seem, no massacre but very convincing.

3. The General Directorate of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast [region] started forming Luhansk and Artemivsk Battalions, numbering up to 200 people.

The Battalion names speak for themselves. If Luhansk residents are unable to organize themselves–the nearby Oblast will help them do that. There have been whispered complaints that the Governor of Dnipropetrovsk, Ihor Kolomoyskyi, has set his sights on Donbas, where he gradually constricts [oligarch RinatAkhmetov. But if Kolomoyskyi’s activity is in the interests of the country, albeit in a tactical plan but at such a difficult time, we agree, it’s difficult to blame him for anything.

By the way, volunteers from all Oblasts of Ukraine can join these battalions. Saving the country is a common task.

  4. I’ve come to the conclusion that Putin’s lies are a serious case of projection.

  5. godofreason says:

    CREATE THE POLITICAL SUPPORT IN THE EAST FOR A MASSIVE OFFENSIVE AGAINST PRO RUSSIANS

    BY CALLING FOR A REAL REFERENDUM

    IF THE PRO RUSSIANS REFUSE TO VACATE THEIR BUILDINGS AND ALLOW THIS REFERENDUM UNDER THE ASPICES OF THE OSCE TO GO FORWARD THEN YOU HAVE LAID THE POLITICAL GROUND FOR A MASSIVE OFFENSIVE AGAINST THEM

    THE REFERENDUM QUESTION

    REMAIN IN THE UKRAINE OR JOIN RUSSIA. IF YOU CHOOSE RUSSIA YOU LOSE ALL ACCESS TO UKRAINE AND EUROPE MARKET.ALL STEEL WORKERS AND COAL MINERS WILL LOSE THEIR JOBS. ALL BUSINESSES THAT DEPEND ON THEIR WAGES WILL GO BANKRUPT. 1,000,000 PEOPLE IMMEDIATELY UNEMPLOYED. RUSSIA DOES NOT NEED UKRAINE STEEL OR COAL.

    WHAT PRESIDENT PETRO POROSHENKO MUST DO

    CALL ON THE PEOPLE OF THE EAST TO DEMAND THAT THE PRO – RUSSIAN SEPARATISTS LEAVE ALL SEIZED BUILDINGS AND RETURN ADMINISTATION OF CITIES TO THE POLICE (WHICH MUST BE REFORMED) AND LOCAL ADMINISTRATION

    IN RETURN THE UKRAINIAN ARMY WITHDRAWS TO IT’S BASES AND DISMANTLES BARRACIDES –

    AND THEN CALL FOR A REAL REFERENDUM.

    LET’S HAND PUTIN THE RESULTS OF A TRUE REFERENDUM THROUGHOUT ALL EASTERN OBLASTS

    LET THE PEOPLE DEMOCRATICALLY DECIDE THEIR OWN FUTURE. IF THE TERRORIST REFUSE THEN THE PROPLE OF THE EAST WILL SEE THEM FOR THE ANTI DEMOCRACY THEY REPRESENT.

    CALL PUTIN’S BLUFF

    A REFORM PROGRAM FOR UKRAINE AND ITS EAST

    A democratic country cannot be held together by force of arms. By not calling for a referendum to let the people truly decide whether they want to remain part of Ukraine or separate, the Ukrainian government is allowing the pro Russian separatists to create anarchy forcing the Government to respond with force leading to civilian deaths that are blamed on the Government inflaming the East and turning the East against it and fueling the pro Russian secession drive.

    This gave the pro Russians the ability to have their own phony referendum.

    President Poroshenko must IMMEDIATELY CALL FOR A REAL REFERENDUM and declare the following:

    1. The Ukraine must be declared a bilingual country with both Ukrainian and Russian as EQUAL languages which will have equality of status and equal rights and privileges as to their use in all institutions of Government at ALL levels. Any citizen must be able to obtain ALL government services in either language ANYWHERE in the country. This includes court proceedings.

    2. Just as In Canada which is a bilingual country parents can have their children educated in both languages. Just as in Canada, the Ukrainian Government shall place obligations on private actors in Ukrainian society to provide access to goods or services in both official languages (such as the requirement that food products be labeled in both Ukrainian and Russian. The Ukrainian Government will provide support to non-government actors to encourage or promote the use or the status of one or the other of the two official languages. This includes grants and contributions to groups representing the Russian -speaking minority in the West and the Ukrainian -speaking minorities in the East to assist with the establishment of an infrastructure of cultural supports and services.

    3. All governors to be democratically elected for ALL Oblasts.

    4. A constitutional conference including representatives from the East to establish a new Constitution with decentralization of government services to the Oblasts with relevant tax powers. Donetsk People’s Republic cannot participate in this constitutional conference until it vacates all buildings.

    5. Ukrainian Government guarantees access for the Russian Federation to the armament industry based in the East which the Russian military is dependent on.

    6. Ukrainian Government guarantees the electrical and water flows to Crimea.

    7. Ukrainian Government guarantees no membership ever in Natio.

    8. Follow the example of Poland that utilizes coal for most of its energy production. Dramatically start switching from gas to coal. Announce that the coal mine wages in Donetsk will be greatly increased.

    9. The EU announces a Marshall program for the east to upgrade infrastructure etc.

    10. Joining both the Eurasian trade zone and EU trade association, Ukraine will demand full equality in the Eurasian trade zone for both itself and Belorussia and Kazakhstan with Russia. Ukraine will seek to join the Eurasian, EU and the NAFTA trade zones into a free trade association consisting of about 1.3 billion peoples. This massive free trade zone could then be expanded to include South American creating a 2.3 billion membership the total population of China and India.

    11. The Ukrainian government will call for a referendum to be held July 5th. The question will be

    “Do you want to separate from the Ukraine and join the Russian Federation or remain part of Ukraine? “

    The month of June will be declared referendum month. All parties will be given the same EQUAL access to TV and press to make its case. All buildings will be vacated with those pro Russians being given access to make their case to the voters. Once these buildings are vacated, the Ukraine army will withdraw to its bases.

    The voting will be controlled by OSCE with each group represented at EACH ballot box and EACH box totally controlled to ensure the ABSOLUTE integrity of the voting. 60% of the total electorate must vote to be legal.

    These proposals give Putin a face saving way out of the crisis he has created and boxed himself into. He can claim that he has protected the rights of Russian speakers and has a huge carrot of being an integral part of the largest free trade zone ever created.

    • sandy miller says:

      I agree with most of what you’ve said…except using officially both languages….How can the Ukrainian government afford this at this time? Just let it alone…let Russian speakers speak Russian etc., Everyone in the country should have equal rights not just Russians.

    • murf says:

      By NAFTA do you mean the North America Free Trade Association? that would seem like a stretch.
      You do not have to have the bloody country as bi lingual. The Oblats can vote this themselves. Just like Canada with English and French.
      I agree coal gasification and also Shale gas should be the highest state priority. It is the only way Ukraine will have any true independence.

  7. Harry romsa says:

    Crimea had a referendum with only a minority wishing to join Russia. Did Russia withdraw from Crimea? Secondly why do you want a bilingual country? After the Holodomor is this not rubbing salt into the wounds? Do you want Ukrainian to die out? Ukrainian as the state language with Russian protected as it now is very generous. Why cater to Putin he caused the problems. Nothing is preventing Russians leaving Ukraine and they should do so if they wish. Putin can return Crimea and join EU if he wishes. He can return Karelia to the Finns, Kaliningrad to Germany, the Kurile Islands to the Japanese. Why put the onus on Ukraine when most of what you state can be done by Putin. Plus an apology and money from Russia would be in order.
