Ukraine | War on fake terror in Ukraine

After the outbreak of the civil war in Ukraine, the media controlled by the Kiev regime launched a powerful stigmatization campaign against the enemy. In the rhetoric of all pro-government media, the term “terrorists” was regularly used. It is used to refer to all the active supporters of the self-proclaimed People’s Republics of Donbas – Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republic. And these republics are named in the media as “terrorist organizations”. Representatives of the Kiev government regularly demand that international organizations recognize these republics as terrorist. One day, it became clear that all this was fake propaganda. In fact, there were no official body of Ukraine issued a decision on the recognition of DPR and LPR by terrorist organizations.

Ukraine | Poroschenko muss improvisieren

Von Reinhard Lauterbach

Keine 24 Stunden nach der Räumung einiger Blockadeposten an der Grenze zum Donbass durch die ukrainische Polizei hat die Führung des Landes eine Kehrtwende angeordnet. Seit Mittwoch mittag gilt eine vollständige Abrfiegelung des Donbass für den Güterverkehr. Der Personenverkehr soll angeblich nicht betroffen sein; auch Lebensmittel für den Privatverbrauch würden nicht konfisziert, kommentierte Innenminister Arsen Awakow die Entscheidung. Grenzgänger berichteten dagegen von angestiegenen Wartezeiten und schikanösen Kontrollen.

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.

Ukraine | Nationalist Battalions Capture Donetsk Filtration Station

The deputy commander of the operational command of the ministry of defence of Donetsk republic Eduard Basurin reports the Donetsk filtration station was occupied by fighters of nationalist battalions. According to him, after yesterday’s statement by the former commander of the “Azov” regiment Biletsky they completely left from under the control of the Ukrainian president and began a new round of combat operations in Donbas. This kind of statement is traditional for Donetsk leadership, in order to avoid final break up of Minsk agreement they separate fascist battalions from Ukrainian army command and present fascist activity like something independent from regular army. “It is possible to draw the conclusion that the Ukrainian authorities don’t control the situation now and aren’t capable of ensuring the safety of the citizens of Ukraine,” he added.

USA | Kiev Is Fueling the War in Eastern Ukraine, Too

By Isaac Webb

KIEV, Ukraine — Less than two weeks after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, full-blown war returned to eastern Ukraine.

Beginning Jan. 29, rockets rained down on residential and military positions along the front line, killing civilians and soldiers alike. One 60-year-old woman was killed in separatist shelling as she walked from her home to a nearby market; a 24-year-old medic was killed when a shell exploded next to the ambulance she was driving. The fighting decimated local water and electricity infrastructure, spawning a renewed humanitarian crisis in the region that could affect hundreds of thousands of people as temperatures dip below 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
