Dmitry Tymchuk’s Military Blog: Summary – July 30, 2014


Dmitry Tymchuk, Coordinator, Information Resistance
Translated and edited by Voices of Ukraine

Brothers and sisters!

Here’s the Summary for July 30, 2014 (for previous summary, please see Summary for July 29).

The bad news:

1. The SBU [Security Service of Ukraine] published the evidence that shellings onto the territory of Ukraine took place from Russia. The world must see this–especially those who still have doubts about the true murderous face of the Kremlin.

SBU evidence base showing Russian military terrorism:

The fact that this evidence is available is undoubtedly a positive [fact], but Russia responded in a peculiar way. As the Communist parliamentarian Vladimir Solovyov stated at the Russian Duma, Russia wants to impose restrictions on the soldiers’ use of the Internet. So that, the bastards, stopped posting the truth and did not interrupt the suit of professional liars like [Vladimir] Putin, [Sergei] Lavrov, [Vitaly] Churkin, [Sergei] Shoigu, [Dmitry]Kiselyov.

A Russian parliamentarian explained the initiative, saying that [Anatoliy] Serdyukov[former Defense Minister] destroyed the army, and that Shoigu [current Defense Minister] must still do a lot to “strengthen and improve discipline.” So the very fact that Russia is the aggressor (and simple Russian soldiers, out of stupidity, provide the evidence that Moscow denies as it foams at the mouth) does not bother the members of Russian Parliament. The most important [task] is to hide the truth. There is one word [for them]–monsters.

2. Starting tomorrow, [Ukrainian] security services along with Maidan activists launch a “hotline” in their joint fight against terrorism. People can inform the SBU 24/7, at 0-800-501-482, of any facts regarding suspicious persons in the region or the intent to carry out terrorist or subversive intelligence activities.

The very fact that such a [hot] line has been created is an absolutely right step. But, alas, it also serves as evidence that Ukraine is getting immersed in an atmosphere of total suspiciousness and fear of terrorism.

We have been challenged, and we will respond worthily. But I hate Putin for the fact that he, after initially throwing his own country into an abyss of terror, brought this fire into my country as well. I don’t want Ukrainians, like Russians, to be afraid to ride the subway or to think about a possible terrorist attack while going to a concert. And all because of a bunch of schizophrenics in the Kremlin.

3. In Donetsk, the remaining broadcasting Ukrainian TV channels were turned off. Previously, Ukrainian TV channels with news segments were disconnected, and the entertainment and business channels remained. Now all is filled with Russian propaganda.

…We say that Donbas welcomes the ATO forces that free its cities from terrorists. But let’s face it: very often, this [attitude] isn’t caused by the immense love of the Ukrainian flag, but an elementary fear and fatigue from the insurgents’ lawlessness. In the minds of the absolute majority of people in the region lies the same Russian garbage behind terms like “junta,” “fascists,” “Banderites.”

The terrorists know that if they don’t constantly keep heating this Kremlin hysteria up, they are done. Because objective information from Ukrainian TV channels is no less terrible an enemy than Ukrainian airborne troops to them. And after freeing our lands from the Russian decay, we should do a great deal to [make sure] that Ukrainian Donbas stops seeing the world through the eyes of the moral pervert Kiselyov.

The good news:

1. Security forces in the area of ​​the ATO not only free cities and towns from Putin’s insurgents, but they immediately begin to restore the infrastructure too. To start with, the objects get defused–as you know, terrorists mine everything they can during their retreats. To date, sappers cleared 45 infrastructure objects in Donbas and neutralized over 3,300 explosive objects. Electricity has been completely restored in Sloviansk.
