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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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?
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?
Oliver Carroll has allowed himself one of the most idiotic and uninformed comparisons on Twitter…
The term “animal show” was likely inspired by “zveriachi bobyt’ia” (animalistic beatings), a term coined by the Ukrainian media, who were almost ubiquitously for the Maidan. It was almost like the owners of the media supported what was happening in central Kiev. Also, the revolution was not just televised but it was properly organized with media support, buses, food, blankets, tents, portable toilets etc. Furthermore, the state apparatus was paralyzed by sabotage an inaction.
The Russians in fact have more self worth because they would not wreck their country like the Ukrainians did. Imagine if anyone tried Maidan in Ollie’s native United Kingdom, how long would he last? Besides, this British interloper appears to support the opposition tactic of drawing out the kiddies, that is mobilizing teenagers for protest. I think the Russians are masochists allowing this creature to live and work in Russia.
And also, the claims that children were beaten are in themselves a propaganda tactic. In Kiev, it was later discovered that many of those beaten children were over 30.
My personal research into Ukrainian historiography of the eighteenth and nineteenth century has shown that the Russo-Ukrainian bilingualism in Ukraine is not a product of forcible Russification of any sort but rather stems from the realization by the ancestors of contemporary Ukrainians that they are in fact Russian, and therefore the literary language of the Muscovites is their own, and not foreign. Meanwhile, Ukrainian language as we know today did not even exist. It existed only in its primordial form of a peasant patois of which there isn’t practically any literary evidence until Kotlyarevsky and Shevchenko.
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!”
