Kramatorsk residents want Ukraine to demonstrate power

Kramatorsk residents want Ukraine to demonstrate power


A message from Kramatorsk:

Kyiv is receiving information that is absolutely distorted.

In reality, most of the residents of the city have an active pro-Ukrainian position, and help our military, and are holding a ‘For Ukraine!’ rally today with national symbols.

It was a hired crowd together with organised criminal groups from Donetsk led by Russian officers that blocked and disarmed the paratroopers.

Virtually everyone from the hired crowd is not local. The total amount of these hired ‘colorados’ [separatists wearing black-orange St.George ribbons] is around 300 people.

The silent majority of neutral citizens that are well accustomed for adapting to all circumstances is now experiencing a colossal revolution in their minds, similar to the one that Kyivans experienced when their subway was disabled [during Euromaidan protests in order to block citizens from reaching Maidan in central Kyiv].

Everyone begins to understand that the the ‘colorados’ and men in green brought war, death, and destruction. And the fact that the backbone of the Russian separatists is made up from the local well-known dirty criminals dissolves all remaining illusions.

The residents of Kramatorsk ardently welcome the Ukrainian aircraft’s gunfire directed at the ‘green men’ in the vicinity of the airfield and ask for more. Now the townsfolk are helping our military personnel to establish positions around the airfield. And in Mariupol people are helping the law enforcement officers to catch yesterday’s apologies for invaders.

People have only one desire – for Ukraine to demonstrate power. And then everything will be ours. All in all, first these dogs will choke on Donbas, and then we will grip their throats in Moscow.

– Glory to the heroes!..
