Crimeans Keep Saying No to Ukraine

More recently, Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland claimed that Putin has subjected Crimea to a “reign of terror.” Both elements have been part of the “group think” that dominates U.S. political and media circles, but this propagandistic storyline simply isn’t true, especially the part about the Crimeans being subjugated by Russia. Consistently, over the past year, polls conducted by major Western firms have revealed that the people of Crimea by overwhelming numbers prefer being part of Russia over Ukraine, an embarrassing reality that Forbes business magazine has now acknowledged.

Ukraine: Divided and Bitter by Tim Judah

Asked Olga Ischenko, the mayor of Pervomaysk, a rebel-held town on the frontlines of the conflict in eastern Ukraine. She was asking me because I had just been in Popasnaya, a government-held town five miles away. She wanted to know if its people were yearning to be liberated by the rebels. What has happened to these neighboring towns shows just how divided and bitter the region has become since fighting began almost exactly a year ago. Before the war Pervomaysk’s population was nearly 39,000, while Popasnaya’s was 22,000; the former is a mining town, the latter mostly industrial and agricultural. Out of Kiev’s Hands.

That grave fact casts the Russo-Ukrainian war in a different light. Normally, wars are fought over prize territory: winners gain it, losers lose it. In this case, the implosion of the Donbass means that whoever controls the enclave is, in fact, the loser. In this case, the implosion of the Donbass means that whoever controls the enclave is, in fact, the loser.

Dear Ukraine: Please Don’t Shoot Yourself in the Foot. Despite the unceasing flare-ups of separatist violence in the Donbass, Ukraine’s new government has managed to take some steps to move the country forward: it has passed legislation to combat corruption, secured funding to stabilize the economy, and reined in its oligarchs.

Dear Ukraine: Please Don’t Shoot Yourself in the Foot

But the country’s national parliament, the Supreme Rada, has just taken a much more dangerous step. Lawmakers recently passed a controversial law that honors dozens of nationalist organizations — including far-left socialists, monarchists, and neo-fascists — as “fighters for Ukrainian statehood.” The law states that those who “publicly exhibit a disrespectful attitude” toward these groups, or “deny the legitimacy” of Ukraine’s twentieth century struggle for independence, will be prosecuted (currently no punishment is specified). The OUN was founded in 1929 as a revolutionary, nationalist organization, designed to throw off Soviet rule and create an independent Ukraine.

" Its planned combination of barbed-wire fences, watchtowers, berms, and tank traps along Ukraine's 1,300-mile border with Russia look like something you'd find on one of Israel's borders with its hostile neighbors. If it's ever completed, the wall will seal a frontier that, until last year, had always been wide open. Inaugurating construction here last fall, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk indicated that much more than just a physical barrier was intended. "This will be the eastern border of Europe," he said. All Not Quiet on the Eastern Front—-Even Polish General Rebukes Ukrainian Ultra-Nationalism. Judging from Western media, one might think nothing much is happening in Ukraine.

Rush to Judgment As a prelude to current events, please recall the hype when Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov was gunned down in March. Western media rushed to judgment. Anti-American Protests in Ukraine. Massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia. The killings were directly linked with the policies of the Bandera faction of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and its military arm, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, whose goal specified at the Second Conference of the Stepan Bandera faction of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN-B) during 17–23 February 1943 (or March 1943) was to purge all non-Ukrainians from the future Ukrainian state. Not limiting their activities to the purging of Polish civilians, the UPA also wanted to erase all traces of the Polish presence in the area.[9] Historians such as Timothy Snyder[10] and Jeffrey Burds[11] see the massacres as initiating a conflict which turned into a multisided civil war in occupied German territories, with Poles responding to the Ukrainian attacks.

In other words…$650 billion in defence spending and satellite surveillance, that can spot a pimple on your ass from space, is unable to clearly show these mysterious “Russian troops” in Ukraine, the US has been whining about since they overthrew the democratically elected President. We have heard 1,000 troops, 3,000 troops, and as many as 19,000 troops, but the real number is actually this…0. Yes zero troops, just like zero WMDs. Same game, same neo-cons, same bullshit.

Hard as it is to say, sad as it is for those of us who liked Ukraine, as I liked Ukraine – over 2 years living there pre-war, it was a country I was very fond of – but post-Euromaidan, Ukraine is dead.

Here’s why – 1. If there’s no law, it’s not a country, it’s a failed state – the recent wave of killings of anyone perceived to be ‘anti-regime’ in Ukraine, accompanied by not only resounding failure to investigate, but actually official endorsement of those responsible – the fact that the police in Ukraine defer to terrorist group Pravy Sektor.

Finance Minister Jaresko may succeed Yatsenyuk as Ukraine PM — experts.

Time for a 'Lousy' Peace in Ukraine.

3 Reply − Randal 12 hours ago Unusually sensible words from a US partisan. Fortunately there's little doubt the US bipartisan foreign policy idiocracy is way too stupid and too much the victim of its own side's self-congratulatory propaganda to ever follow such sensible advice. Fortunately, that is, for any kind of global justice and future balance, which requires that the US/EU attempt to use Ukraine to kick Russia while it is down and to make further progress towards the desired regime change in Moscow must fail, and be seen to have failed. Tragically unfortunate for the Ukrainians caught in the unfolding disasters, but it's always innocents who are the victims of these kinds of geopolitical power games. So Ukraine will keep on glugging past the political, economic and national u-bend, as the oligarchs and the nationalist thugs and the west-struck liberals squabble over the pickings. And Europe and Russia will also bear the primary costs of a wholly unnecessary confrontation fomented by Washington and by irresponsible EU apparatchiks. The latter two groups hope to reap the gains, but apart from a few US oligarchs who have profited by directly feeding off the still stirring corpse of Ukraine, any gains are likely to be outweighed by greater costs down the line, when the US faces its next confrontation with a real potential rival and finds Russia is firmly in the pro-Chinese camp as a result of US policy. 1 Reply – andreylukashov
