Damien Viguier: I am going to Ukraine, to the side of good people, to Novorossia, to Donbass

In the period from 20 to 23 November 2015 Damien Viguier, a French lawyer, visited the Donetsk People’s Republic. The main purpose of his visit was to see the truth about what is going on in Donbass. Damien took an active part in the round table in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of Donetsk. The topic of the meeting was to identify and register the facts of war crimes and crimes committed against humanity, as well as those of damage caused by the state of Ukraine on the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic. On coming back home, Damien posted a video message:

‘I am going to Ukraine, to the side of good people, to Novorossia, to Donbass.

I am going there on a working visit to meet my fellow lawyers. To map out a plan of actions in legal terms, since I am not a military man but a representative of the law. Therefore, my purpose is to determine the plan of actions aimed at protecting this cause, the cause of defending the interests of the peoples who want to live free.

In such matters it is best to come to the scene in order to see everything with your own eyes. So far I can previously summarise the situation as follows. Until 1989 Ukraine was an eastern (Eastern European) country, a Slavic country inhabited by fraternal peoples and a part of its population is Russians. But from that point on NATO was taking action to annex Ukraine, to bring it into the US sphere of influence. The events accelerated during the Sochi Olympics. And now there is a civil war there the specifics of which is that it has reached a stage at which, from the position of the classical law, on the part of the Kiev government there was to follow... This government initially came to power illegally, through a coup. And what made it a state was the fact of its recognition by the world superpowers. This fact made it a legal state. However, in this case the states of Donbass should be accepted in the same way. They have the police within their boundaries, and Donetsk and Lugansk also have an army which is uniformed and applies the rules of military law. Therefore, based on my analysis of the situation, we have all the preconditions for a way out of this civil war.

I always consider things from the point of view of two time periods. If we lived in the great age of the 18th century, everything would have happened as I have described: the government of Ukraine would have recognised the states of Donbass, they would have been recognised by Russia, France and so on.

Unfortunately, what is going on in this part of the world is like what is happening in Syria. It is that mankind must understand for itself whether it continues living in conditions of the total US domination which oppresses civilians in inhuman ways, including crimes against humanity, but it is a clear indictment substitution of concepts. Do we continue living in this system of the world domination which has neither end nor limit since in the reality the world domination is impossible? What is possible, though, is disasters and chaos that we observe and that seem to make the USA satisfied. In other words, all this can go on and on for a long time. The question is whether we are going to continue living like this or, out of the confrontation taking place in Ukraine and Syria, the situation will dramatically reverse towards what is called a multi-polar world. In which the world superpowers equilibrate each other and in which the international law might become valid again.

That is what, in my opinion, is going on in this part of the world’.
