Ukraine | Ukraine officially introduces blockade of Donbas

March 15, the Council of National Security and Defense of Ukraine decided to completely stop the movement of goods through the line of delimitation with the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. This was reported by the secretary of the department Alexander Turchinov. The employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, the National Police, the National Guard with the participation of the Security Service of Ukraine were instructed to stop the movement of goods through the contact line by rail and road and create conditions for attracting public control over the implementation of this decision.
“In addition, the National Bank of Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine were instructed to analyze the activities of the banking institutions of Ukraine, who has a share state banks of the Russian Federation capital, and make relevant proposals within a day, in particular, on imposing sanctions against them,” Turchinov summed up.
The CNSD motivates its decisions by the nationalization of Ukrainian enterprises, which the authorities of the Donetsk and Lugansk republics began on March 1. It should be noted that the nationalization in Donbas itself was provoked by the Kiev government itself. It was the republics response to the economic blockade, which fascist gangs began to implement with the support of some deputies of the Ukrainian parliament. This blockade was held with the tacit support of the Kiev government. After the beginning of nationalization the government made attempts to stop the blockade and disperse the right-wing radicals. However, these measures provoked fascist riots in several regions of Ukraine. In particular, in Lutsk they seized the meeting room of the regional council. Thus, the Kiev government fully satisfied the demands of the fascists. Obviously, the economic costs of breaking the trade with the Donbas for Kiev are less significant than the political consequences of the fascist rallies.
