Russian parliamentarians threaten Ukraine with invasion



The Russian parliament needs to reinstate Vladimir Putin’s right to send troops to Ukraine if the US begins to supply weapons, said Mikhail Emelyanov, the first deputy head of the “Just Russia” faction in the Russian State Duma.

“We believe that our Parliament must not ignore this declaration. If the U.S. really begins to supply lethal weapons to Ukraine, we should not hesitate to support the ‘militias’ by supplying weapons and to reinstate the president’s right to send troops to Ukraine,” he told journalists.

According to Emelyanov, the decision by the U.S. Congress on supplying arms to Ukraine is provocative.

“This shows that the U.S. is absolutely not interested in de-escalating the conflict in Ukraine and is trying at all costs to equip Ukraine with weapons because, in its geopolitical plans, Ukraine is a deterrent state for Russia that the U.S. needs to keep Russia from developing as a new superpower,” the deputy said.

As previously reported, the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress passed a resolution on Monday,  March 23, urging President Obama  to send arms to Ukraine. The resolution, which functions as a recommendation, was approved 348 to 48. It calls on the president to “use the powers conferred on him by Congress to provide lethal defensive weapons to Ukraine.

        I am proud to say that I am a “Putinophone” and I was that from day 1 of his appointment by Boris Yeltsin. Nothing good has EVER come from the KGB!

        Think how France would have reacted, if an officer from Abwehr became Chancellor of Germany in 1953, only 3 years after the end of The Third Reich?? They would have invaded right away, and rightly so!

    Russia is like some crazy dog whom has got hold of your baby and gnaws on your baby’s arm ten feet away from you. As soon as you make an attempt to move towards the mad dog to grab hold of and pull your baby to safety or attack the dog, the mad dog stops chewing and stares you in your eyes, still with his jaws around your baby’s arm, clearly threatening you to rip your baby to pieces in one Mighty tug if you continue to move forward. So you stop moving, and the mad dog starts chewing on your baby’s arm again, slowly eating your baby to the Death. Your baby is going to be eaten either slowly or quickly, it is up to you, even, if the procedure starts all over again.

      You don´tlike the russians ? do you ?

      • Roger Mikael Klang

        Russia accuses Sweden openly of being behind the conflict in Ukraine. I am talking about the state – Russia – not Russians as such even if most of them are behind Putin. We go way, way back!

        • Michel Cloarec

          I have nothing against the russians as people . But the nomenklatur from Kremlin . And they accuse everybody of their misadventures even Sweden and Denmark recently.

      • Dirk Smith

        Nor do I. Their history the last 100 years speaks for itself.

  • Michel Cloarec

    Since when does putin needs authorization from russian parliament ?
    Russia is already in Ukraine ! Killing people , destroying, stealing !
    As russians usually do ! They have long history of such doing .

  • Randolph Carter

    Well, at least my spineless leader (Obama) and his sycophants are doing something! Remember, he took precious time away from his golf game to help Ukraine; we all should be so grateful! Now it becomes a question of actions not words, and sadly our politicians are experts at promising everything and giving nothing. I pray for my love who lives in the Donbass – I would be with her now if not for the bad feelings towards Americans in Ukraine.

  • Dirk Smith

    I believe most of these fat gauleiters are drunk half the time. Their blatant lies, hypocrisy, and cynicism reminds one of a drunken wife beater.

    • Michel Cloarec

      They are really from another world ! I have never met a russian who is not drunk, so I don´t know how they are , but I can imagine that abstinence certainly prevails.

  • Robert Drake

    Yes it is possible to send yet more troops… though I have difficulty with seeing the provocation in “defensive weapons” which seems to be completely unmentioned in their categorical response. What is it that they consider the provocation? That Russia cannot kill at will?

    Not surprising! Anyone here surprised by this? Let Ukraine defend itself… Russian made it a poison pawn for the west, might as well give them some poison pills to make the taking of it even less palatable for the aggressor! Why can they just let people f**king vote and live with the results… for decades to come, Europe will be a fairer and more comfortable place to live for all except the wealthy svinja who have looted the people of Russia and Ukraine for decades now. Since the explosion of inflation…the average in Ukraine wage is down to about 115 dollars a month…and even with low prices for foods and services, millions of people are being cheated out of their lives and savings – if not impoverished so thoroughly as may never recover… even if there is peace. Why can’t these murdering bullies leave the Maidan and its heroes in peace?

    when I read this, I thought , it funny , that Russian s think the world believes there
    lies , not one nation on earth believes, Russia s lies , even the ones that support
    there invasion , of Ukraine , don’t believe , that it is any thing other than an undeclared war by Russia , on Ukraine , nothing there proper gander, can do to change the facts
    Russia did declare, war on Ukraine , back in February of 2014 , America , must arm
    Ukraine , Russia has nothing left to threaten the world with , they have already
    declared war on the free world , even Obama knows that , but he like a rabbit in a spot light at night , just stays there frozen , in terror , and does not know were to run , so he just
    stays there , hoping nothing will happen to him , but just like the rabbit , it never works they way he had hoped ,

    Invasion, that is what your ratty kgb dwarf had been so scared of the whole time, dear Russkies. I wish you actually did it because then your end would come much more swiftly.

    It is time for some serious spanking of the mongolian scum.
