Chocolate King and Putin in standoff

24 July 2014, 07:39

Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics to be declared terrorist organizations.

First some background: 

Eastern Ukraine is historically, culturally and linguistically linked to Russia. 1,000 years ago the country we now know as Russia rose out of an area called Kiev Russ which encompassed most of what is now Eastern Ukraine. Kiev was originally the capital of Russia. 

When the Right Wing Nazi junta took over Kiev this year and replaced the elected president with Arseniy Yatsenyuk, the people from Eastern Ukraine regarded it as a coup. They also objected to the rhetoric coming out of Kiev forbidding them to speak their native Russian and the leaked tapes of Tymoshenko  who said that she wanted to shoot them all and nuke all 8 million of them off the map. 


Tymoshenko: Time to grab guns and kill damn Russians

As a result the regions of  Donetsk and Lugansk held a referendum with a total voter turnout of approx. 80% and declared themselves to be  separate federations. It is unclear as to whether they wish to rejoin Russia or establish themselves as Independent Federated States.

The Kiev Nazi Junta has not recognised these referendums and has sent in armed forces who have shot and killed many unarmed civilians and bombed the region, including schools, hospitals and residential areas. Estimates are that over half a million, mostly women and children have fled across the border into the regions of Crimea and Rostov to find safety in the refugee camps that are being provided by Russia.

The People's Republics of Donesk and Luhansk have formed their own self defence units and since May have been fighting a civil war for Independence from Kiev. The media coming out of Kiev not only portrays these self defence units as "terrorists," but has continued, without evidence or any substantial proof, to accuse Russia of invading Eastern Ukraine. Which it has not done. 

The Chocolate King as he is known, has now decided that the predominately Russian speaking people of Donesk and Luhansk, who have declared Independence and formulated their own constitution must be declared terrorists in order to give him the right, under international law, to do much the same to Donesk and Lugansk as Israel is doing to Gaza. Bomb them into the stone age.

As Interfax reports,

Ukraine will demand at an EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting on Tuesday that the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) be recognized as terrorist organizations, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said.

"We [Ukraine] and the Netherlands will make every effort, in particular during the meeting tomorrow of the EU Foreign Affairs Council where Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin will speak, so that the so-called Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics be declared terrorist organizations and so that any cooperation or support the terrorists receive is recognized as such under international law," Poroshenko said on Monday while visiting the Dutch embassy in Kyiv.

Ukraine is preparing international lawsuits against the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR, to label them as terrorist organizations, Poroshenko said earlier on July 19 during a meeting with Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans.

Russia on the other hand, has repeatedly requested a cease fire and that all parties should come to the negotiating table in order to reach a peaceful solution.

In response to the Chocolate King's attempts to have the militia of Donesk and Lugansk declared as "terrorists," Russian President Vladimir Putin hasrecalled The State Duma from a planned vacation and intends sending in a peace keeping force. Under Russian law all Russian speakers from the previous Soviet Union are still entitled to Russian citizenship, and as such, Russia will protect Russian speakers from genocide.
