This is no ordinary run of the mill press conference, this is a formation of a framework of a resistance army. Not a resistance militia. There is a big difference. One belongs to a territory and the other to a state.
The tone throughout the press conference has been in the typical underplayed Russian fashion on the surface but if words are taken as a measure, then this is a serious escalation in the game. This is a setting of direction for the rest of the Ukrainian phase of this conflict.
The perfectly structured explanation of events by the Defense Minister is a clear indication of how serious the people in eastern Ukraine have taken this situation. They know exactly what they are up against and are sending a strong signal; We are prepared mentally, emotionally and physically.
They no longer represent a rag tag militia. This is a well oiled fighting machine with International volunteers joining the cause. Though, always being the people to play by the rules, the Russians have left a door open to negotiate.
A.Zakharchenko has clearly laid down the offer when he said: “You don’t have to recognize our status, just leave us alone within our borders of Donetsk and Lugansk republics” . The Russians of course would like this matter to be resolved as soon as possible. Though, I have doubts if they really would want to. A reversal in the momentum under some peace pretext would perhaps be the biggest mistake now. This war machine has gone too far already.
The crisis in Ukraine is nothing but a joint ethnic cleansing campaign by the US and EU via their SS division in Ukraine. It really is as simple as that. To hesitate now would mean certain doom tomorrow. The EU & US cannot be trusted anymore. The only solution is total control over Ukraine; Kiev must be liberated.
The press conference served not as just a statement of events but a carefully coordinated delivery of a few key messages. Some of the main ones are:
The ferocity of the war
A few times the subject of a futile war is brought up in the context of miners,farmers and hard working eastern Ukrainians picking up arms. It is stated that if this were to happen then Kiev stands no chance.
The casualty count of the Junta is highlighted with clear knowledge of facts and figures regarding the enemy. Mothers are warned that a “missing in action” letter is more likely a death certificate.
A rejection of the mainstream narrative and a proposition for peace
Mothers (of army conscripts) are told “…do not send your sons here. Leave us alone. Let us live free and in peace. ” and reminded that war was imposed on eastern Ukraine. A way out of the mess is even offered with a plea to “…a political conscience, a will and a courage of a real man” to stop the operation (The so-called Anti-Terrorist Operation).
The patience of the resistance is truly outstanding, even after all that has transpired they say “You don’t have to recognize our status, just leave us alone within our borders of Donetsk and Lugansk republics, and we will kiss each other goodbye.”
Symbolism & International revolutionaries in Donbas
It must be noted that the symbolism in parading the troops as they were in Moscow July 1944 is a very strong emotional tactic. This really in one stroke, puts things in perspective for the average babushka and beer belly joe. It not only conveys a firm grasp of history in the resistance, but a setting of the parameters of discussion.
The narrative is being redesigned, correctly, by the resistance to highlight the core issue: a US/EU sponsored Nazi onslaught on a peaceful east Ukraine.
But this is not all, we are also told that there are now international volunteers in Ukraine. There is even mention of inviting French Navy personal to fight amongst the anti-fascist resistance. If this is verified then this would be quite serious.
* An Interview with French volunteers has surfaced on twitter. Thank you to @Catherina_News for highlighting this *
We have already seen an Spanish freedom fighters and even an Afghan fighter paying back his “dues” for the all that the Soviet Union did for him. This is indeed a PR nightmare for the western press!
Who in their right mind would tune into the fruitcake pro-Nazi propaganda being blown out of every imperial mouthpiece!? But alas, that benchmark of absurdity, the BBC, is still living in fairytale land with its latest accusation of Russian soldiers invading Ukraine. Planet Neptune sure is a strange place.
A rejection of Federalization
This too late to the party monotonic utterings from the protoplasmic jellies (of Boris Johnson fame) of the EU is categorically rejected with:
“Let me clarify. No federalization can be possible today. There is time for everything. We asked for the federalization 3 months ago, then we asked for a permission to hold a referendum. That time has passed, now we want to live independently.”
Formation of a State
Just when the barrage of counter-Nazi-narrative viewpoints was almost over, the resistance mentioned something that I believe conveys the steadfast resolve of the government. A government that now has a Defense Minister and Army. Notice, how the key role and instrument for protection are the major themes here.
This point is further driven home by the discussion on the death penalty and its reinstatement by the supreme council. The council in the Donetsk National Republic, that is.
This was not just a press conference but a state of affairs; a definition of boundaries, illustration of ground realities, terms of peace, confirmation of hostilities and even a small reference to the genocide for shale gas project in eastern Ukraine.
This is a nation state that will most likely be a launch pad for the liberation of Kiev. The Junta and their pimps in Fashington must be convulsing right about now, foaming at the mouth to be precise.
