These Shitheads Still Believe That Ukraine Will Have Some Influence Over Russia?

Browsing Twitter for mentions of my website I encountered this…

I thought the Western commentariat is now over such comments. It ain’t 2014 now and 6 years have passed to assess Ukraine’s success. These people must have their head so up the ass they do not see how good their post-Maidan Ukraine has faired.

  1. Ukraine is competing with Moldova for the title of the most impoverished country in Europe. Good luck getting anyone in Russia to want the same.
  2. Repression against the Russian cultural element by the government are rife making the country repulsive to any true Russian out there. Do you honestly think that a country that bans the Russian language would have any influence over Russia?
  3. Political opponents of the current regime are being literally killed. Oles’ Buzyna, an author, who advocated good relationship with Russia was killed outside his home by Neonazis one day after his address was leaked by Myrotvorets, a database run by the Ukrainian Secret Service.
  4. Neonazis, who are under control of the Ministry of Interior attack political opponents of the government, who are allegedly (according to fabricated evidence) pro-Russian.
  5. Nazi collaborators are being given monuments throughout Ukraine, as documented by Eduard Dolinsky. I understand that in the West, the propaganda tells us Neonazis in Ukraine are a fiction but the Russians are not exposed to such obscurantism.
  6. Ukraine has been part of several provocations against Russia, for instance they downed the MH17 (yes, I believe they did) plane to frame Russia. You honestly think such a gangster state that killed 300 people to frame rebels in Eastern Ukraine that are fighting against a regime that glorifies Nazis would inspire anyone in Russia?
  7. Also, statements about successful Ukraine having influence on Russia are never made by Ukrainian nationalists, who do not want Ukraine to be some kind of alter-Russia.

Honestly, the Russians ought make a quick process of anyone, who wants this kind of democratization in their home country. It is not even clear to me why Russia is deemed less democratic than Ukraine?

There isn’t any Space for Holodomor Propaganda in Russian Donbas

So I ventured to the Atlantic Council and found an article discussing a recent forum held in Donetsk called Russian Donbas, where the head of RT, Margarita Simonyan called for Donbas to be reintegrated with Russia…

There some Lithuanian Russophobe discusses the doctrine of the Russian Donbas, which is the intellectual blueprint for the aims of the Donbas republics, which is the reintegration with the motherland. There he writes:

The Russian Donbas doctrine is the latest example of the Kremlin’s enthusiasm for rewriting history in order to suit its contemporary political requirements. This tendency to distort the past has been central to the information war that has accompanied Russian aggression against Ukraine.

Well, OK…

When Russian forces first seized Crimea in spring 2014, Moscow propagandists were quick to declare that the Ukrainian peninsula had “always been Russian.” In reality, Crimea is an ancient land with a recorded history stretching back almost three thousand years that includes extended periods as part of the Byzantine Empire, Golden Horde, and Ottoman Empire. Meanwhile, Russia’s involvement in Crimea began comparatively recently in the late eighteenth century. Clearly, it is nonsensical to claim that this highly cosmopolitan geopolitical crossroads has “always been Russian.”

Please show me any academic Russian historian that made the claim that Crimea was always Russian. If anything, Crimea was a territory transferred from the RSFSR to Ukraine by the Bolsheviks, who have created Ukraine as we know it. I understand that in the Atlantic Council they prefer narratives that would derusify the Russian history of Crimea.

Regardless of whether the authors were Ukrainian, Russian, or Western, most traditional academic histories of the Donbas have tended to focus on three key aspects of the region’s early development. These accounts typically begin with details of how the Donbas was first colonized by Ukrainian Cossacks and peasants, who moved into the borderland regions previously known as the “Wild Fields” following the gradual retreat of the Crimean Khanate.

Next came waves of colonization from different parts of Europe and beyond. This was followed by an extended period of intensive international involvement that fueled the industrialization of the region throughout the second half of the nineteenth century.

Western investors and industrialists were instrumental in the development of the Donbas, bringing vital capital and technologies to the region. The most famous of these was Welsh businessman John Hughes, who founded Donetsk in 1869. The city was called “Hughezovka” in his honor until 1929, when it was renamed “Stalino” by the Soviet authorities.

The Russian Donbas doctrine outlined in Donetsk on January 28 made barely any mention of these crucial factors in the history of eastern Ukraine. Instead, the discussion focused almost exclusively on Russians who played prominent roles in the region’s growth.

The Ukrainian Cossacks and peasants did not have any notion of being Ukrainian. They thought themselves as Orthodox Russians. The region was always international and Russian was the lingua franca that served the people as means of interethnic communication, and the Russian people are an amalgam of ethnicities united by loyalty to the Russian state and the Russian language. Ukrainians on the other hand are an ethnographic subgroup of Russians that aims to build a separate nation and state.

There was no mention of the systematic Russification policies adopted during both the Czarist and Soviet eras, and no room for an honest exploration of the Holodomor, the artificial famine engineered by the Soviet authorities in the early 1930s that killed millions of Ukrainians and ravaged the region. Other Soviet atrocities were similarly ignored.

However, forum delegates did find time to condemn the Ukrainian authorities for recent efforts to return historical names to towns and cities throughout the Ukrainian-controlled areas of the Donbas. This was portrayed as evidence of the Ukrainian government’s anti-Russian policies.

Kremlin efforts to criticize the Ukrainian authorities for the “Ukrainianization” of Ukraine speak volumes about Russia’s deeply entrenched imperial thinking. This kind of ideology has roots stretching all the way back to the Czarist past, an era when Ukrainians were branded “Little Russians” and their language was suppressed as a mere dialect.

The only systematic nationality policy in Ukraine was Ukrainization under the Soviet union, which was presented in waves because Ukrainization always finds resistance from the people. The Russification of the late Tsarist era also came in waves because it encountered resistance in Central and Western Ukraine but it was much less systemic. Obviously, there is no way a Russian patriot would be interested in some Ukrainian nationalist bleating about how bad Russians Russified Ukraine.

Now, the author does show an absence of knowledge of Ukraine. the region itself was only joined to Ukraine by Lenin. It had nothing to do with any Ukrainian state prior to that and the names of cities all appeared during the Late Tsarist and Soviet eras. They either bear the names of the early settlers, communist revolutionaries, or something unrelated to Ukraine. For instance one village was called Novgorodske, and was given back its old name New York, which was probably a remnant of the early British colonization of the region but was renamed in 1951, right at the start of the Cold War. I don’t know where you see Ukrainization in the decision to give this town its old name, not even Ukrainization in inverted commas.

I am glad that the people of East Donbas are free from Holodomor propaganda because Holodomor is hateful hype of anti-Soviet forces. You see, the famine of the 1930s is a real event but Holodomor is something else, it is a spin on that event. In that interpretation, the famine was engineered by the Soviets to kill Ukrainians, and in the modern interpretation Russians are blamed for it. It first appeared in the press of Nazi Germany, which had a strong community of Ukrainian exiles from the Skoropadsky regime and was coaching Ukrainian nationalists to fights against Poland and the Soviet Union.

The story about the artificial famine was widespread in Western Ukrainian circles before WWII and that is why today, we see more people in Western Ukraine believing in Holodomor than in Eastern Ukraine where it actually happened. When I asked my relatives if my great grandmother, who was a Ukrainian peasant, ever spoke about Holodomor, knowing she was no fan of the Soviet government, I was told that she never did. She only complained about being made to work in a collectivized farm. She was not subjected to Holodomor propaganda. Famine was something that she experienced thrice, during the Civil War, during 1930s, and in the 1940s during WWII. My grandfather had to leave Ukraine and fend for himself after the War, he joined the military and moved across Russia.

Navalny’s 2008 Program for Georgia

Found this on the internets, it is an old post Navalny made on Livejournal…

I translate:

Russia ought to undertake these measure in the least:

  1. We should provide a serious military and financial support for South Ossetia and Abkhazia (that is in the range in which Abkhazia is ready to really fight in South Ossetia)
  2. Declare a no-flight zone over South Ossetia and shoot down any flying objects that appear in this zone.
  3. Declare a complete blockade of Georgia and end any connections.
  4. Expel from Russia any citizens of Georgia.

Further on act according to situation, however at the same time being aware that we really want to blast away the Georgian central command with a cruise missile. But the Georgians only expect that.

Into the Mind of an EU Parliamentarian who Wants to Free Navalny

Guys, I am amazed about the level of discourse concerning the jailing of Navalny…

Alexey Navalny has a reputation of a fraudster, who has a contempt of court. Remember Kirov les? Now the authorities stepped in, and finally jailed the guy. The reason he was getting away from jail for so long, despite the many cases of fraud against him, is partially due to foreign pressure. And you see European parliamentarians, foreign minsters, members of national assemblies, presidents and prime ministers do not care whether Navalny is guilty as charged, all they care about is that he is a pro-Western rabble rouser that is going to jail and will not be able to influence the kiddies…

Markéta Gregorová is a Czech MEP representing the leftist Pirate Party, who almost constantly makes statements critical of Russia. The main object of her critique is the Russian law on foreign agents that she calls an attack on civic society. Because it ain’t civic society unless it is financed from abroad by George Soros…

Markéta Gregorová and Alexey Navalny

She had this this to say about the jailing of Navalny:

It does not matter that he is guilty before the Russian courts. What matters is that it was without a doubt proven that there was an order to have him killed as was proven not only by the investigative group Bellingcat?

So, the Russian court does not matter. It does not matter that the Yves Rocher case was purely commercial, it was launched by the Russian branch of the Yves Rocher, and Navalny was given a suspended sentence, and he was now jailed for failing to fulfil the requirements of that suspended sentence.

Bellingcat? Are you kidding me? The same people that have uncritically peddled Ukrainian secret service fakes regarding the doomed MH17 flight? Here on this blog I let my dog tear apart Belligcat.

Volkov and Ashurkov Hysterically Call for Sanctions in the Wake of Their Boss’ Incarceration

Reuters reports:

A close ally of jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny on Monday urged the West to hit President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle with personal sanctions, predicting the move could trigger potentially destabilising infighting among Russia’s elite.

From here

Aha, this is what they want, they want to create a discord in the Russian elite by banning them from travel to the West and forbidding them from buying property and holding assets there. Isn’t that cute? How open they are about this.

Well, if you think people with money stashed in the West can challenge Putin, fair enough. This ain’t Ukraine however, I bet any potential challengers were already neutered a long time ago. Russia doesn’t need disloyal individuals that cling to money stashed in the West…

Leonid Volkov, who is wanted by Russian authorities on accusations he illegally encouraged minors to attend anti-Kremlin protests, made the call on the eve of a court hearing that could see Navalny jailed for three-and-a-half years.

I am glad the Russian authorities began dealing out sentences for pimping out kids to protests. These literal motherfuckers try to entice impressionable young people, who do not have life experience to protest for their clown leader, and then get handled by the riot police. Then they scream bloody murder, “they are beating kids”, THE KIDS!

This is criminal behavior and ought to be punished severely. Lithuania and the EU are hiding a dangerous child molester and should extradite his ass immediately to the loving embrace of the Russian system of justice.

Vladimir Ashurkov, another Navalny ally, published a letter addressed to U.S. President Joe Biden on Saturday appealing for sanctions against businessmen and officials identified as being close Putin allies.

This Vladimir Ashurkov has been notorious in trying to damage the Russian business and interests through appeals to Western authorities. Recently, the Federal Security Service, FSB published a video featuring this little twerp discussing things with James William Thomas Ford from the British embassy. Among the issues discussed is how they could run an information campaign with the help of the British to damage the good name of Russian banks and businessmen.

Savushkina Troll Factory is Fake News

A troll factory in St. Petersburg on the Savushkina street, run by Putin’s cook is a lie, and a bad one at that. But US state funded media keep rehashing that story…

Illustration from RFE/RL

If you have ever attended a troll raid, you would understand how different the world of trolls is to that presented in the story of Savushkina troll factory. My is Leos, and I am a pro-Russian troll with many years of experience.

If there was an organized effort to troll in favour of a government, then what we would see is a decentralized operation. People would do it from anywhere in the World. Why would you need an office in St. Petersburg? And also, another element of trolling is the fact that most people writing troll posts believe what they are saying. If the discourse comes out of your heart, it is far easier to construct witty arguments, and win the shitstorm completely disarming your opponent.

But stories about Savushkina troll factory exist to delegitimize support for the Russian government on the internet by saying that you honestly can’t believe what you are writing, you must be paid in grams of vodka and salmon roe cans. If you know where I can get paid for trolling, I will gladly subscribe. But I don’t take vodka and salmon roe cans, I’d prefer bars of gold.

Wouldn’t There be any Russian Spring with Navalny in the Kremlin?

One only wonders whether there would be any Russia at all?

In Ukraine, the local nationalist crowd seem to hate Alexey Navalny and think that he would be just like Putin. A video that has surfaced from recent protests in support of Navalny, which also took place in front of the Russian embassy in Kiev, which shows a confrontation between a Russian speaking individual, who says that “The sooner Putin is removed, the sooner Crimea will return back to Ukraine.” To which the nationalists say that Navalny is no different from Putin to put in decent terms…

I restrict age on my videos due to violence and vulgarities…

The fist gentleman represents the globalist point of view on Russia. To them any Russia that acts independently of the West is a problem. And they prefer a manageable Russia, preferably carved up into small manageable pieces. Carve it up like Africa and create new nations in Cossackia, Siberia, Moskovia etc. with new mickey mouse identities a la Ukraine and Belarus, that will be too weak and prone to outside influence, where the West could control the regimes, and if need be support friendly regimes militarily to quell any resistance. NATO countries like my own have a lot of experience in chasing a variety of savages in exotic lands. The Czech troops are currently stationed in Afghanistan and Mali for instance. And I have met Czech soldiers in Jordan rather recently.

Maybe I am exaggerating but I think it was Brzezinski, who said something along these lines. And I hear from other sources invested in influencing countries in the Former Soviet Union that this belief may not be all that uncommon. The wish for an absolutely compliant regime in the Kremlin is definitely there. The idea that the Russians act wrongly and they need to be punished for their actions is certainly almost ubiquitous in Western political circles.

One of glaring transgressions of Putin against the West was the annexation of Crimea in Spring 2014. In 2014, following an unconstitutional overthrow of power in Kiev, the Kremlin found the guts to take a Russian majority peninsula that hitherto belonged to Ukraine under its protection thus saving the people from political repression and forcible Ukrainisation. And also saving Russia from the humiliation of having to vacate their naval base. And the question is, would president Navalny do the same?

If we look back to an interview Navalny did with Ksenia Sobchak, he made his point on Crimea clear. He said that the referendum in 2014 was faked and that it would need to be repeated. To which Ksenia answered that what is the point of even suggesting a referendum with international observers when the West will not accept in anyway? Navalny also called for sanctions against Russian officials on the pages of the New York Times. (hat tip Anatoly Karlin) Navalny is basically a puppet, who is completely afraid of saying anything that could anger his Western handlers, and even if we assume that he does not have Western handlers, which is hard to do with every Western politician coming out in his support, he is surrounded by people, who are definitely in the pockets of Western interests. But we can of course give him the benefit of a doubt and assume that he will become a Russian patriot upon becoming a president. How then will he be different from Putin? Does Russia need Navalny?

Of Wretched Little Puppets of America Between Mittleuropa and Greater Russia

Who will see nothing but poverty and war because Russophobia is a disease that needs healing through repentance…

As you probably know, I tend to record my trolling adventures with shitbags on the internet. And one such mendacious shitbag is Paul Niland, who ekes out an NGO scrounger existence in Kiev, Ukraine. I assume he is British but he be whatever variety of Anglo interloper and I really care not where he is from…

I went to his profile to get some trolling kick, and wrote this in response to his article from last September about Naftogaz, the Ukrainian state gas company.

My last post gave me the verbal ammunition to unload on propagandist pieces of shit like Paul Niland. The man is a lying snake and deserves a harsh treatment. This is what he replied:

Well, Ukraine has shrunk economically and demographically since the Maidan. Nobody know the size of the second variable because the government refuses to conduct a proper census. The real purpose of infrastructure such as the Nord Stream is simply to bypass the highly unreliable countries that lie between the Mittleuropa and Greater Russia. Were they less mired in Russophobia, Russia would not have the need to construct all this infrastructure.

To Niland history apparently started in 2014.

This is honestly it. Russophobic politics of these countries will bring them nothing but poverty and war, and I only hope they will not drag us into war.

Any conflict could have been prevented if the putschistes in Kiev did not decide to violently suppress any resistance. And I meant what I said. In 2013 I have had to delete all manner of Ukrainian channels from my viewing list because I was a witness to a torrent of Russophobic discourse in the run up to the Maidan.

In the minds of the Western propagandists, Russophobia does not exist, the discrimination of Russians does not exist, the violence against Russians does not exist. Oh well, they are even more stubborn and stupid than the people that run Ukraine.

The Czechs Start Building a Gas Pipeline Connecting Their Country to Nord Stream 2

The attitude of the Czechs towards Ukraine is an interesting one and an inconsistent one. Back in the 2014-2016 when the conflict in the Donbas was the hottest, the Czechs made weapons deliveries to Ukraine, enacted sanctions against Russia with the rest of the EU. and provided treatment to wounded Ukrainian soldiers. But when it comes to heat in their homes, the interests of Ukraine are successfully ignored.

A gas pipeline, the “Capacity4Gas” was turned online in the Czech Republic. The pipeline connects to the EUGAL, which is the terrestrial extension of the Nord Stream 2. Works on the remaining sea based pipeline, in Danish territorial waters should start on 15 January this year, and should the pipeline should be completed within two months.

The US government in a frantic effort to save the gas transit revenue for its puppet, Ukraine, enacted further sanctions but I am not certain this will work. The Nord Stream 2 was already sanctioned to the max…

Now, don’t you find it ridiculous that lawmakers across the pond can legislate against infrastructure projects here in Europe? For this reason, it is imperative that Germany and Russia resist any American pressure. As for America’s puppets, the weak little wretched countries of the Baltics and Ukraine, they need to be cut off from any potential revenue from Russia. And this is the policy of the Kremlin. These obstacles between Mittleuropa and Greater Russia will be bypassed with new infrastructures.

My recommendation to them is: “Topple your sellout governments, skewer the rich, and burn the US embassy!”
