Parasyuk on “humanitarian aid” from the enemy, Moscow Patriarchy and ATO

Parasyuk on “humanitarian aid” from the enemy, Moscow Patriarchy and ATO

Since when did we become so poor that we must take kasha and pasta for Donbas from Russians?

On «humanitarian aid» from Hu@lo:

It seems our government does not understand what they are doing and is unable to learn from mistakes. How can anyone believe that sickly Putin’s goal is to «help poor residents of Donbas»? It is an obvious, blatant lie. Personally, I am one hundred percent sure, that russian soldiers hide amongst pasta boxes and kasha sacks, and that these soldiers are there to help so-called «peoples army» otherwise known as terrorists.

It appears that our government also does not understand what the word «enemy» means. Putin is our enemy: he finances terrorists, sends his mercenaries into Ukraine, kills our people and tries to strangle our economy. In turn we are expected to accept his «aid». Like, seriously? Is it not obvious, that this «aid» is the next ploy aimed at making everyone believe that Russia has nothing to do with the war? And our leadership foolishly accepts this «aid»!

I do not understand: since when we have no self-respect to accept cats in the bag from Russia? Or are we so poor that we must use Russian pasta to feed people in Donbas? Even if we were that poor, this problem could be remedied very fast, once our bureaucrats and military brass would stop stealing and trying to cut themselves a piece of wealth from the war. In fact, if their corruption would stop, Ukraine would be able to feed not just Donbas, but provide «humanitarian aid» to the whole Russia up to Kamchatka.

I wonder  what would be the reaction of our president if the «Conti» employees were to stuff his candies with poison while saying that this poison was hazelnuts? Your people must come first for you; only after providing for them you may tend to international agreements and ease of your neighbours. Especially, when Europe does not do its part of the agreements, substituting real help and action for endless concerns and condolescenses.

On elections in Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Moscow Patriarchy:

Today, one more front of war for Ukraine has opened. It happened in Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra. Today we will see, if the orthodox priesthood is capable of making a stand and cut themselves off from Moscow’s Kyrylo, or the religious subdivision of FSB will continue as it is, trying to ruin Ukraine from inside.

When the ATO had just started, we often received information, that the buildings belonging to Moscow Patriarchy had been basically turned into terrorist hideouts: there were constant inflow and outflow of people in military uniform and heavy pickups were seen daily loading and unloading crates and equipment there. Basically, this «church» is not just a religious institution, it is also an outpost of so-called Russkiy Mir («Russian World») in Ukraine. Its employees do nothing but deceive their flock and they do not hold anything sacred. To my mind, Kremlin’s agents, including Kyrylo and his sidekicks — unclean businessmen and KGB agents – should leave Ukraine. We have our own otrthodox church, with compassionate priests, who are patriots of Ukraine. And Moscow Patriarchy is free to build its Russian World at home — on Kolyma and in Magadan.

Even the name of this organization is funny. “Ukrainian Church of Moscow Patriarchy”. Have you ever heard of Moscow, a Ukrainian town? No? Neither have I. This «Ukrainian Church» abhors everything Ukrainian; they take away our lands and our sacred places and use the money of common believers to buy themselves and their agents luxury cars and lobster salad every day.

On ATO headquarters and help for the army:

ATO leadership are just a bunch of bad actors. This war will be won by common soldiers and common commanders, who know what it is like to sleep in a trench. The headquarters rats only know how to steal, lie and avoid responsibility.

You can not imagine how often I hear  that this many tons of gas are illegally sold, that volunteer aid items are being sold to the soldiers who are entitled to receive them for free. You must understand, that only a half of collected funds and aid items reach the soldiers. Another half is stolen by the officers in charge of storage and procurements who steal the items in order to sell them at a triple price. My advice: if you want to help, give your items directly to the soldiers. My sister, for example, did just that: she bought 100 units of uniforms and personally distributed them among the soldiers.

A lot of cargo never reaches its destination due to terrorist skirmishes. But the worst are pseudovolunteers-conmen, who simply defraud you and steal your contributions. So, provide your help personally or through the people and organizations, who you feel you can trust with your life.

I bow my head before the children of Ukraine who gave their lives for us. They will live forever in our hearts. We shall emerge victorious and the enemy will pay for every single dead Ukrainian. Eternal glory to the Heroes of Ukraine!
