Putin and the “Novorossiya” terrorists



Article by: Taras Klochko

The process of cleaning out the occupied territories of the Donbas from the uncontrolled “would-be chieftains” will finally force Vladimir Putin  to fund the local separatists.

While the very conditional “truce” lasts in the Donbas, the Russian occupying troops will continue eliminating the poorly controlled and not very reliable field commanders of the “Novorossiya army.” The most recent victims of this clean-up were Alexander Bednov, nicknamed “Batman,” and a so-called “Foma,”  a little-known leader of the “Odesa” brigade. And if it is very likely that “Batman” is no longer alive — even thought there are reports that his murder was only staged — then “Foma,” on the other hand, has not put up any armed resistance to Russian special forces and after brief negotiations with his entourage graciously agreed to disarm in exchange for his life.

There can be no doubt that a similar fate awaits the other “would-be chieftains” remaining in the Donbas. Here we are referring above all to Alexei Mozgovoi, who is still operating in Alchevsk, and the Stakhanovite  chieftain Pavel Dremov. It is most likely that their turn will come in a month or so. Meanwhile the Russian special forces will deal with the variety of lesser-known terrorist scrap.

For now Mozgovoi and Dremov are well aware that they have only two choices — either leave Donbas by agreement with the Russians, as Bezler, Kozitsin and Strelkov-Girkin had done earlier, or be physically destroyed, as was the case with “Batman.” Even if Bednov-Batman is still alive, that does not change the situation. The announcement by the “prosecution” of the so-called LNR (Luhansk People’s Republic) about the liquidation of “Batman” is essentially an illustrated ultimatum to the other militants with an explanation about what awaits them in case of disobedience. At the same time, the “Odesa” story eloquently demonstrates that resistance by most of the thug chieftains is impossible because at best they will remain without Russian ammunition and eventually they will be captured by a barehanded enemy or at worst will be destroyed immediately.

Therefore, it is to be expected that in one or two months the end will come to the “would-be chieftains” and that all of the “Novorossiya gangs” will have to report to a single center. The only thing that could slow down this process is uncertainty about what to do with the Donbas in the upper echelons of Russian leadership.  However, one way or another all the “chieftains” will be eliminated. This, naturally, will enhance the general combat readiness of the “militias” but will force Russia to take on the financial support of the gangs. Earlier, the field commanders of “Luhandonia” and their fighters lived from racketeering, “skimming,” and looting, but this cannot last forever. Basically the fighters-separatists are incapable of creating something similar to an economy. Replacing all the local militants would cost the Kremlin too much and would too openly violate the fiction about the absence of Russian troops in the Donbas. Therefore, the only way to get rid of the looting and the lawlessness in the occupied territories is to pay for the services of the local militants, which means sooner of later taking on the financing of the entire terrorist “Novorossiya.”

    It is wrong to call people who are defending their families from actual nazis regiments and forced conscripts sent by a pro-USA coup Junta for terrorists.. The pro-USA oligarch that rules Ukraine has said himself that he will bomb the civilians of Donbas so their children will be forced to live in basements, even USA funded NGOs like Human Right Watch has been forced to admit that the regime that violently seized power in Ukraine is using clusterbombs against civilians.. Not to mention that the governement has cut of pensions so the civilians of donbas are starving.. There are terrorists in Ukraine, people who use terror, starvation and violence against women, children and men, and they rule Kiev and is currently invading Donbas.

    Just like Saudiarabia the Ukrainian coup government is a terrorist state.

    “Poroshenko ‘Their children will hole up in the basements…this is how we will win the war!’

      From this shameless russian troll, “guest” we can again read the ongoing russian genocidal HATE /smear campaign against Ukraine, repeated by this typical leninist- polpotist russian robot parrot.

      He is quoting word for word from the Kremlin- the home of many genocidal demons,, recently such as lenin, stalin putin et al.

      Like a broken record playing over and over, these toxic lies (and countless others) against Ukraine, all its people and its heroes were revealed as LIES, fabricated accusations, when russian archives were briefly opened after 1991. (putin sealed them again.)

      It was clearly revealed that the russian leninist/PolPotist genocidal maniacs (people just like this troll) carried out massacres dressed as Ukrainians to smear and discredit any idea of Ukrainian statehood. They did this in the 1920’s 30’s 40’s, 50’s… and continue today regarding their crimes against humanity in Crimea and Donbas: Once again they are carrying out atrocities against Ukrainians and blaming them on the Ukrainian people. Their useful fools in the West pick up and join this foul chorus (products of the FRANKFURT SCHOOL – pls look it up online)

      In the 40’s these russians, like this troll, raped, slit throats, slit pregnant bellies,burned families alive and carried out pogroms against Jews, dressed as Ukrainians and members of Bandera’s freedom fighters. They blamed all these atrocities on the the Ukrainian people and on the very idea of Ukraine as an independent state….just as today in Donbas.
      (Russians, dressed in Ukrainian police and military uniforms carried out murders and brutalities on the Maidan…)

      These historic libels continue to be repeated by this and countless other russian trolls and other sworn enemies of Ukraine today but their croaking voices are fading and becoming self- mocking.

      This typical russian parrot troll, like a dog- a Pavlov’s dog, was trained to repeat murderous lies. Whenever he hears the word “UKRAINE”, he screams, “traitors! murderers! nazis…! ” I.e. russia’s message since 300 years. He learns putin’s lessons well…

      HOWEVER THE TRUTH OVERCOMES LIES and TRUTH is on the side of Ukraine.
      Ukraine will prevail and russia will continue to shrivel into its real status as a failed mafia state on the level of a Nigeria.

      I noticed the increased slamming of Saudi Arabia by all you trolls. I guess their decision to not cut back on oil production in hopes of squeezing Russia’s terrorist regime harder is starting to hurt as it’s started showing up in the Kremlin’s talking points the last week or two.

      But you are right about one thing. There are terrorists in Ukraine. Most of them are destroying Donbas from within, kidnapping citizens, extorting from them, murdering them and trying to make them live in fear. They have also recently tried bombing in Odessa and Kharkiv to sew unrest and terror. They are the thugs and criminals sent to Ukraine by Russia. They are the ones using Donbas residents as human shields in their fight against Ukraine’s brave soldiers fighting for their country’s freedom. They are heroes, unlike your Russian terrorists.

      By the way, you missed ‘the ghost of Stepan Bandera’ in your rant. No extra cabbage for you!!! But at least “Volya” lowered the price of vodka for you so that your life expectancy can drop below 63….

        They always have to blame someone else for their unsuccessful attempts to conquer the world !
        Saudi Arabia oil has a production cost 6-8 $, so they can keep on long time !
