Brothers and sisters!
Here’s the Summary for August 13, 2014 (for previous summary, please see Summary for August 12).
The bad news:
1. Just as we believed the Kremlin and have set forth our vision of the story with “humanitarian aid” from Russia to Donbas, it became known that the convoys would not go through Kharkiv Oblast. Previous promises by the Russians to do everything strictly in agreement with Kyiv and the ICRC [International Committee of Red Cross] turned out to be a lie–the Red Cross hasn’t received the information about the movement of convoys or the [humanitarian] cargo. Once again, we see that only the most naive can believe Moscow, and even those, not for long.
As a result, the story with “humanitarian aid from Putin” is more like the Kremlin’s dirty provocation. According to our data, the Russians have, at the same time, deployed additional artillery units to the border with Ukraine (like there weren’t enough of them regularly bombarding the ATO forces). We can only guess what other bloody farce the Russians will set up here. [We] do not exclude the possibility that in the next mirthless show prepared by Putin for Donbas, “the humanitiarian convoy” may play an important role.
2. The occupying authorities of Crimea launched an informational war against Ukraine. Access to Ukrainian websites for Crimean users is blocked, social networks are being controlled. Previously, as is [well] known, Ukrainian TV channels were disabled, there are no Ukrainian newspapers.
All this complicates the task of the informational reconquering of Crimea, without which it is difficult to imagine its liberation from the occupiers. I have repeatedly said: we will get back Crimea the same way we lost it. And we lost it, first of all, by letting Putin control the minds and hearts of the Crimeans. Including, due to the moronic information security policy of Ukraine for over [the past] 20 years.
Moscow won’t present us with such ideal conditions. And this means that [we] will have to operate under very difficult conditions. But a member of the FSB has not yet been born, who could not be outwitted by a Ukrainian patriot.
3. Also about Crimea. Putin and his lackeys showed up in Sevastopol, where [he] holds gatherings with members of the Security Council of Russia.
I’ll be brief. Bitches, [they behave] as if they are at home.
The good news:
1. ATO forces are already in the suburbs of Donetsk. Active combat is underway near Luhansk. The encirclements that groups of insurgents wind up in are being more clearly drawn.
Of course, no one is waiting for a full victory tomorrow. But let’s face it: changing the situation for the worst can only be done through the inappropriate actions of Putin. Let’s hope that the international community will be able to stop him.
2. The Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, I. [Ihor] Shvayka, reported that a Ukrainian convoy carrying humanitarian aid for the residents of eastern Ukraine would leave Kyiv tomorrow.
This, of course, is great–the Donbas population is in dire need of such assistance. But did we really need a scandal with Putin’s “humanitarian aid” to finally prioritize the coverage of such assistance by the Ukrainian authorities as the information problem of the state?
On the other hand, humanitarian aid, and in large quantities, is available only to the population of the liberated territories. This is understandable. But, how to solve this problem for civilians from the settlements occupied by insurgents? This is a question to which we do not know the answer.
Theoretically, the Red Cross could help with this, and it seems that even terrorists agree with it (in particular, we are talking about Luhansk). But we have to admit that no one will be able to guarantee the security of the ICRC staff–there is nothing sacred for the insurgents and they don’t [seem to have any] brakes.
3. And of the fun [news]. The scandalous former Chief Sanitary Doctor Gennady Onishchenko, Russian propagandist, and currently the assistant to the head of the Russian government, named Coca-Cola and Pepsi the “real existing chemical weapons.” And [he] complained that the Russian bans on food imports are not subject to these enemy drinks.
Onishchenko, you Woodpecker. With your black mouth unregulated by an acid-base balance, you spat into the soul of the whole “Pepsi generation,” not only in Russia, but throughout the former USSR. This drink was the only breath of freedom accessible to the average “sovok” in the former Soviet empire, which is now being revived by your masters. And you want to deprive the new Russian “sovoks” even of this? And if “Coca-Cola,” I agree, was an ideologically harmful drink, then “Pepsi” is fully blessed by Its Holiness, the Party. Learn the imperial history.
You’d be better off banning the true chemical weapon, that is [currently] exterminating Russia, under the name of “vodka.” Meanwhile, we’ll also see how long the current Russian government lasts after that.
