How Many Rubles for the Heads of Novotný and Kolář?

Ondřej Kolář is the mayor of Prague 6, who recently removed the statue to the Soviet liberator of Prague, Ivan Konev. Pavel Novotný is the mayor of Řeporyje, a village that forms the outskirts of Pragua. He brings plenty of traffic to this blog, and recently came up with the initiative to commemorate the soldiers of the Russian Liberation Army. A Nazi collaborator group formed of Russians, who at the very end of the War turned on their Nazi masters and helped the revolt of Czech patriots against the German occupiers...

The Czech Republic is a funny place. Following the removal of Konev’s statue, Russia reacted with enacting a law that would prosecute people, who desecrate the monuments to Red Army in Eastern Europe. But the reaction of the Czechs has been rather hysterical. Not so long ago, a piece of news began circulation that the Czech secret service, the BIS, has information that a man has arrived in Prague, who can be a potential danger to Ondřej Kolář, Pavel Novotný, and the principal mayor of Prague, Zdeněk Hřib. All, as I know, were placed under police protection. Recently, the Czech Minister of Foreign Affairs said he knows of Russian actions and that should anything happen to Kolář or Novotný, they will know who did it.

I personally think, the BIS has links to Kolář and this is a conspiracy to create a moral panic with the aim of damaging Czech-Russian relations, and the current government in the Czech Republic as all the mayors represent the opposition. The opposition in the Czech Republic is normally represented in urban areas, whereas the government and the president represent the countryside.

Some people seized on the opportunity to have a bit of laugh at the expense of the eccentric mayors of Prague. Some Zdeněk Pernica from an obscure regional right-wing party asked on Facebook how much is the reward, and added that he lost money due to Corona and needs to cover the losses. He did not mention anyone in text but included a doctored picture with himself holding a rifle and the three mayors seated.

Novotný and representatives of the Czech liberal wing went into hysteria and tried to get the police involved.

Police CZ, thank you, here is a man worthy of investigation from Brno…

The journalists were also active…

This is an explicit threat of death made by Zdeněk Pernica, this should be of interest to the police. The police president was also tagged.

I really hope the police still has some sense of humour left unlike the liberal turds that went ratting on the man. The issue was widely reported in mainstream media, which tried to create a moral panic.

“Do you know the size of the reward in rubles?” -wrote on a social network, the head of the movement, Slušní lidé (polite people) and included a picture of Prague politicians, who are facing threats because of the removal of the Konev statue. All three are under poĺice protection.

The Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Denies Agency to Crimeans

Recently, the journal Foreign Affairs published a commentary by John O’Laughlin, Gerard Toal, and Kristin M. Bakke largely in reaction to the statement published by the State Department, confirming the latter’s opinion that Crimea is Ukraine. Their argument boils down to this:

But when Ukrainian activists and Western politicians claim that the residents of Crimea are “living under occupation,” they mistake the experience of some for the experience of all. The majority of Crimeans do not experience Russian rule as oppressive, alien, or unwelcome.

Basically, it does not really matter what the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo thinks. It does not reflect the realities on the ground.

The commentary raised the ire of the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, who was compelled to write a reaction where he says:

But there are several fundamental problems with measuring popular opinion during an illegal occupation. There is no free environment in Crimea in which one can express political views, especially if those views contradict the Kremlin’s line. Moreover, the people of Crimea have spent more than six years under a heavy barrage of Russian TV propaganda without easy access to alternative sources.

Kuleba basically said that the people of Crimea lack agency because of Russian repression, and because of being subjected to Russian propaganda barrage. He goes on to mention the repression of some subversive elements, particularly from the ranks of the Crimean Tatars without telling us that these repressed elements represent a minuscule sample of the Crimean population.

Using the same logic, one may argue that we are unable to objectively measure pro-Russian sentiment in Ukraine because people with pro-Russian views, pro-Russian media in Ukraine, Russian TV, Russian social media platforms etc. have been repressed and banned, put in jail, or outright murdered like Oles’ Buzyna.

The Denis Yermak Scandal Proves What I Have Been Saying on This Blog

Whenever, an eavesdropping scandal erupts in Ukraine, an axiom is revealed. The Ukrainian elite uses Russian when in private, and hence the employment of Ukrainian in public is hypocritical and goes against nature.

Efforts to promote Ukrainian at the expense of Russian are really aimed at harassing the lower class idiots. The children of Ukrainian elite speak Russian and get their education in West European languages.

And therefore I think that any attempts to elevate the Ukrainian language are futile, and they will lead to further fragmentation and destabilisation of the Ukrainian society.

Mejlis Plans to Break Through Into Crimea

So it is coming…

Back in January, the head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar Nation, (a self-appointed organisation that claims to represent the Crimean Tatar people and is banned in the Russian Federation for anti-Russian activity) Refat Chubarov claimed back in January they will attempt to break into Crimea through the force of numbers.

Chubarov said the avantgard of the march of the Tatars will be formed by “members of the Mejlis, parliamentarians and Western partners.”

The march is planned for the 2 May…

Lybov Sobol’s Husband and Brother are Ukrnazi and Maidan Supporters

Almost everyday I find yet another Ukraine link in the non-system opposition in Russia. This time at the very heart of the action. See my other recent posts, about Ruslan Shavetdinnov, Ilya Novikov, Kirill Naumov, and Vladimir Shipitsyn

Apart from Ruslan Shavetdinnov, whose case has been widely reported by the likes of the Washington funded RFE/RL, the rest of the individuals I have covered are low level activists really. This time, I discovered the brother and husband of Lyubov Sobol, the Moscow resident activist, and close Navalny comrade.

The information is now relatively dated, it actually comes from 2016 but it has resurfaced recently, and it is worth reposing here because it adds to the series I was running.

It turns out, the brother of Lyubov Sobol, Grigory Musatov took active part in the Euromaidan.

Her husband, Sergey Mokhov is not far off:

The Rats are Leaving the Sinking Ship?

Whenever you are being told about 40% of young Russians wanting to quit Russia for a better life in the West, think of this guy…

Mikhail Roskin is driving his tractor towards the USA. Says his wife won a green card and they are going to US without contacts or good knowledge of English. Be careful he writes about politics. He is being read by Alexey Navalny.

And he is coming back…

There is some complete fuckery happening with the evacuation of Russians from the US. 1. Today an empty Boeing 777 flew from NYC to Moscow. They allowed only 50 people on board. They accepted only those that had registration in Moscow, the others were simply left behind…

Come crisis, Putin’s Russia help please, I don’t wanna stay in Murica, can’t afford medical insurance because I’m a sucker. And such is the story of the majority of those that say “I wanna emigrate…”
