Three Conclusions Regarding the War in Donbas

Three Conclusions Regarding the War in Donbas


Europe is starting to look more and more like an old, fat and bloated prostitute who’s been scrubbed from reaching retirement age. I’m not just referring to yesterday’s quadripartite talks between the Ministers in Germany. Eurodeputies and European heads of state are reluctant to think and see beyond the usual phrase – “we express our deep concern…”; furthermore, they show a total inability to act and a tacit policy of laissez-faire in face of Russia’s aggression. This is quite obvious.

This is a fact that we need to accept first and then draw the right conclusions:

1. Our military partner – the United States.

2. ATO should be tough – we have now put a padlock on their “concern” over our tough stance (in the past few days, 120 terrorist sites have been destroyed) and possible consequences.

3. In the past months, Ukrainians have shown that they are willing to defend their freedom and choice by sacrificing their soldiers, demonstrating to the whole world what it means to have Cossack genes and ingrained military valour. We declare that today’s Russia is a fascist aggressor state that speaks and understands only the language of force.

Ukrainians are ready to do just that. Just don’t bother us. But, you can help… financially. The best army of Europe is currently being created in Ukraine. Fighting spirit is our army’s linchpin. Combat skills are acquired on the battlefield; as for weapons – that will come with time.

As to yesterday’s information about another “truce”, I didn’t see any peace-making measures besides the fact that our border guards and OSCE representatives will be allowed to monitor Russian checkpoints. That’s absolutely right. It might even be a small victory for Ukrainian diplomacy.

There’s no reason for us to panic.
But, there’s only one kind of truce that we can accept – all armed groups must lay down their weapons and a filtration camp should be set up in order to determine the degree of guilt and involvement in terrorist operations.
Our soldiers are fantastic! Just consider what the pilots of the Su-24 aircraft managed to do near Sloviansk. Such deeds should be recounted to children during school lessons on courage!
