Donbass blockade is a move to split Ukraine

Sourse The Ukrainian authorities are hindering themselves the unification of the country. The termination of trade with the self-proclaimed «DPR» and «LPR» can lead to their definitive separation, believes Bernd Johann. The escalation of the conflict in eastern Ukraine has been going on for several weeks. Not a single day passes without a firefight, and heavy weapons are used again. Reports of the OSCE which, as a matter of fact, must monitor the observance of the long-agreed ceasefire, are nothing more than helpless evidences of the war that has already been going on for three years.  The conflicting parties - the separatists and the Kremlin supporting them, as well as the...

«Thanks», Ukraine: European Union declares a trade war to US

Source The European Union has faced yet another unpleasant surprise from the new US President, Donald Trump. Following the invoicing of 2% of GDP for the «American umbrella», the White House decided to impose a 20% duty on imported goods, including EU products. Now, the German Chancellor Angela Merkel will have to solve this problem on behalf of the entire EU, reports the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung.  The media considers three options for the EU response. The first implies the support of European companies at the expense of reimbursement of US customs duties, but such a strategy leads to large budget losses. Brussels can also file a complaint with the World Trade Organization...

The end of blockade of Donbass: three most likely scenarios

Source The events taking place in Donbass and in the western regions fit into several scenarios: «radical», «liberal» and «external». Radical scenario In the conditions of disintegration and weakness of the power, on the ground there is a great temptation to use the «right of force». Experts believe that the presidential team has not yet used all possible reserves to take control of the situation. However, the shootout at the checkpoint near Slavyansk was not accidental, it was a hint that, if necessary, they would go to the end.  ‘Poroshenko can act as hard as possible. The police showed that they can use force and, if necessary, would shoot, while the «disobedient» MPs would be intimidated by criminal cases or there would be an agreement with them,’ said political scientist Vadim Karasev. ‘Now he must convince everyone that he will hold on to power until the end. So, Poroshenko will demonstrate strength, because he has no choice: if he shows weakness, he...

Donbass Reunification Program - Radicals’ Declaration of Creating ‘Unbearable Conditions’ in Republics - Western Banks' Recognition of LDPR Passports

Since the recognition of the LDPR documents by Russia on February 18, 2017, events in and around Donbas has begun to unfold swiftly.  On February 24, the Ukrainian army again shells the Donetsk filtering plant (DFP) which supplies water to about half a million people of Donbass on both sides of the front line. Several shells enter the room with chlorine.  Simultaneously, the Ukrainian military make another attempt to break through in the north of Donetsk. The DPR army is fully alerted.  On the same day, Ukrainian saboteurs disrupt the communication system of the Ukrzaliznytsia (the Ukrainian railway) and the mobile operator Life. On February 25, the nationalist units of the Ukrainian army seize the DFP and open fire from its territory on the positions of the DPR army. It is possible that they were counting on the DPR return fire on dangerous productions in order to accuse the Republic of creating a manmade catastrophe.  On the same day in Minsk, during a meeting of the...

Legalization of Donbas Blockade - Union of Ukrainian Nazi Parties - Constituent Meeting of Integration Committee «Russia - Donbass»

Last week, a dual power between official authorities and radical nationalists established in Ukraine.  Having failed to stop the blockade of Donbass, the Kiev authorities decided to «head» it, trying to snatch the initiative from the nationalists.  Nationalists, feeling their strength, officially united with the goal to deal a final blow to the current authorities.  Again brought to the brink of the economic survival, Donbass announced a total breakdown of ties with Ukraine and a complete reorientation to the economic cooperation with Russia.  All that time, the shelling of the territory of the Republics did not cease for a single day. On March 14, the Ukrainian side again opens...

Russian Federation’s financial trap has worked. Recognition of LDPR reaching a new level

Source No sooner had the Kiev politicians got over the decree of the Russian president on the recognition of the documents of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics than Donbas (or rather the position of the world community towards it) presented its opponent with a new surprise. The recognition of the LDPR at the international level is evolving, and Kiev is naturally hysterical, realizing its own helplessness, and even more natural, raising the information wave smelling of carrion. A new slap in Poroshenko’s face has come from the banking sector. Several international banks have simultaneously reported on their readiness to serve customers with the LDPR passports. Not so long ago,...
