Russian proxy republic leader in Donbas threatens to attack UN peacekeeper mission

“If any international mission of UN peacekeepers penetrates into “LNR-controlled” territories without our consent, our troops deployed in the Donbas will be ready to fire on them,” said the “LNR” representative in the Tripartite Contact Group Vladislav Deynega in an interview on the separatist television channel Luhansk 24.

Deynega underlined that “not one single man bearing a weapon will enter “LNR-controlled” territory”. When Leonardo Svidovsky, the host of Theme of the Day asked him whether UN peacekeeping forces would be considered military sabotage and reconnaissance units, Deynega replied: “They’ll be treated as “Cargo 200”. Any person who arrives with a weapon will be responsible for the consequences of such actions”.

(Cargo 200 (Russian: Gruz 200) is the code word referring to casualties that were transported back to the homeland in the Soviet times. The term “Cargo 200” has acquired special significance since Russian troops invaded Eastern Ukraine. As of October 2016, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission has, despite their limited access to the conflict zone, counted more than 20 vehicles with “Cargo 200” inscriptions, used to transport bodies of Russian soldiers and mercenaries from the Donbas-Ed).

Earlier, U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker said that a UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbas would not be coordinated with the “DNR” and “LNR”. In response, the “DNR” and “LNR” representatives Denis Pushilin and Vladislav Deynega said that the UN mission will be allowed to enter the Donbas only if their mandate has been endorsed in Donetsk and Luhansk.

Moreover, “DNR leader” Zakharchenko believes that refusal to discuss the deployment of UN peacekeepers to the Donbas with him, as well as with “DNR” and “LNR” representatives will lead to a stalemate in talks, and Kurt Volker’s dismissal from the position of special representative of the U.S. State Department.

On November 9, The Wall Street Journal wrote that, in the near future, U.S. authorities would seek Russia’s approval of a plan to deploy 20,000 UN peacekeepers in the Donbas.

“DNR” authorities immediately protested, declaring that the number of peacekeepers was excessive.

    Maybe it’s time for Euromaidan Press to let advertisers know that their texts have to be in Ukrainian, not Russian… maybe?

    1. Avatar AmounRah says:


      BTW, Eurimaidan press isn’t Ukrainian.
      Some dude that owns the site in Netherlands (or some sh*t like that, I looked up a year ago+ who owns the site) who is making $$$ off of ukietrolls constantly swarming this site, foaming at the mouth.

        What’s “Eurimaidan”? If you have official info about this here site’s owners, by all means, show it. The site itself is run by people in Ukraine and the materials are developed and translated by them and their network of volunteers. As to your puerile insults aimed at Ukrainians, seems you have no other means of support than being paid to troll them. How SAD.

          If you know that I made a typo, then why ask that question?
          Ah, “defamation”, I forgot where I am.

          ” If you have official info about this here site’s owners, by all means, show it.”
          Come on man, you can give me a little credit…or at least attempt to google before you question what I say.

          who Whois (service that holds information on website ownership and registrations) :
          “According to Whois record of, it is owned by Johannes Bax of Robert van Voren since 2014. Euromaidanpress was registered with Key-Systems GmbH on April 26, 2014. Johannes Bax resides in Hollandsche Rading, Netherlands and their email is [email protected].” So no, it is not owned or operated by “Ukrainian volunteers”. I do not doubt that they present material though, which Euromaidan will spin, READILY, because it gives them clicks. And what is better for clicks than emotions, anger and fear? Just ask US media (any media).

          “As to your puerile insults aimed at Ukrainians”
          You might want to re-read what I wrote in my post, and please do not just to assumptions or conclusions so readily:
          I said “ukietrolls”. Not Ukrainians. I do not know about you, but to me they are two completely different types of people.

          “seems you have no other means of support than being paid to troll them”
          AHHHHHHHHH yes. We can not have a post without that. “You disagree with me, you must be paid”. Why are people so afraid to think for them selves or have someone question them? Jesus Christ…..

          1. Avatar Rascalndear says:

            A site can “belong” to someone without that meaning anything negative as you seem to imply and Euromaidan Press is obviously not hiding anything although you talk as though it is. Robert Van Voren was involved in establishing the project from Day 1 and is a pro-Ukraine Dutchman who himself provided services on a gratis basis at the beginning. So what? Most of the people writing and translating for the site are unpaid volunteers, some of them going into their fourth year. The administrators are probably paid, as they’d like to eat every day and have a roof over their heads, just like you and me. Burt unlike you, I actually know many of these people personally and even worked briefly with the team back in 2014.
            I consider you a troll because you make exaggerated claims, distort the facts presented in this article (more than once), and go out of your way to rudely personalize the discussion with everyone who disagrees.

          2. Avatar AmounRah says:

            So then if it can be owned by someone else, and you are ok with it…..why did you ask me to provide you with proof?
            You were hoping that I would not be able to present something so you could say I am lying, or something along those lines.
            Or am I wrong? 😉

            It’s “useful-idiots” most of the time, because that’s what you [and many others like you] are AmounRah, a “useful-idiot” in the classical sense that Lenin used the term. However, in you case the problem seems to be more schizophrenia and brainwashing than just foolish ignorance.

            You say you are capable of independent thinking, however, 100% of the time you are incapable of seeing any point made by anyone who doesn’t think the way you do. And the only point you ever have to make I can find on the pages of Sputnik, RT etc coming from the mouths of people like Dmitry Kiselyov. A ventriloquist dummy for Russian State Media is all you seem to be AmounRah and as MichaelA say’s here – if you didn’t rant so much you wouldn’t be called an idiot [or useful-idiot etc] so often.

    Why would Russia have any say in U.N. Peacekeepers in Donbass when “Russia is not involved” according to the demented dwarf?

    Too bad Drumpf is under Kremlin control and refuses to say anything bad about his Kremlin handlers.

  3. Avatar Ihor Dawydiak says:

    Any drivel coming out of the mouths from the representatives of the so called Donetsk and Luhansk Republics should be taken with a grain of salt since only Moscow has the final say in any foreign policy matters concerning these regions which are under Russian occupation. Furthermore, should Russia agree to a UN mandate to send UN troops to these regions then part of that mandate would almost certainly include security guarantees provided by Russia for the protection of UN personnel in these regions. However, taking all of this under consideration, the bellicose remarks made by the terrorists belonging to the DNR and LNR had in all probability been cleared by the Kremlin and as such Putin would veto any UN presence in Russian occupied Eastern Donbas thereby making this entire affair nothing more than a diplomatic tempest in a teapot. As for the comments made by the terrorists, this too was needed as it would have been inappropriate for Moscow to block the deployment of peace keepers without just cause and taking into consideration that Moscow has always claimed that there are no Russian troops in Eastern Donbas. Therefore, a scapegoat was needed for the Russian veto and the local terrorists were used as the perfect excuse.

    2. Avatar AmounRah says:

      Oh lord, the ukietrolls….
      DO you guys even read past the headline? You spend more time parroting the same B S for years now than reading the actual article.
      LITERALLY the first paragraph:
      “Deynega underlined that “not one single man bearing a weapon will enter “LNR-controlled” territory”. When Leonardo Svidovsky, the host of Theme of the Day asked him whether UN peacekeeping forces would be considered military sabotage and reconnaissance units, Deynega replied: “They’ll be treated as “Cargo 200”. Any person who arrives with a weapon will be responsible for the consequences of such actions”.”
      Do not enter the region with weapons. Done.
      No “we will attack UN” no “we will attack peace kepperes” no “we will attack everyone”….

      Third paragraph:
      “Earlier, U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker said that a UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbas would not be coordinated with the “DNR” and “LNR”. In response, the “DNR” and “LNR” representatives Denis Pushilin and Vladislav Deynega said that the UN mission will be allowed to enter the Donbas only if their mandate has been endorsed in Donetsk and Luhansk”

        “- Vladislav Deynega said that the UN mission will be allowed to enter the Donbas only if their mandate has been endorsed in Donetsk and Luhansk” -”

        There is no such thing as DNR and LNR these are only self declared republics. Vladislav Deynega doesn’t speck for anything that exist except delusions in his head. So what does he mean by “their mandate has been endorsed in Donetsk and Luhansk”?

          ” Vladislav Deynega doesn’t speak for anything that exists, except the delusions in his head.”
          Did you decide that?

          ” So what does he mean by “the UN mission will be allowed to enter the Donbas only if their mandate has been endorsed in Donetsk and Luhansk”?”
          I should probably ask you that. You seem to know what everyone is thinking and saying, so I am sure you can answer that with another speculation? Can’t wait to hear it.

And who are you to just up and de-legitimize the UN? And if it is de-legitimized what is Russia still doing in it as a member? Further, the UN and all other international councils in the world don’t recognize the Crimean referendum 2014 as being legitimate.

            “- Most countries that have taken a position on the Crimean referendum [2014] have condemned it as a breach of Ukrainian sovereignty. Only a few countries, including Armenia, Kazakhstan, Russia, and several breakaway states supported by Russia have endorsed the vote.-”

            Note, this isn’t a Forbes opinion op-ed. Now review the section
            – Reactions – in this Wikipedia peace. Note the list of nations under the heading – UN member states. Note, it’s a lot more than just the US and Saudi Arabia listed here. And only Armenia, Kazakhstan and Russia have endorsed the Crimean referendum 2014 vote.

            I’m emotional? No, you are delusional if you deny what I just told you was the truth about the Crimean referendum 2014. And when it comes to DNR and LNR nothing recognizes these places as yet.
            And you are delusional if you think that the world does recognizes these places.
