Lugansk, November 2017: hibernation in Ukraine is over

Lugansk, November 2017: hibernation in Ukraine is over

If you want to win the battle, you have to manage it. The 20-23 November 2017 events in Lugansk showed that Moscow’s actions here were timely. For three days Igor Plotnitsky resisted and did not want to surrender power. And this means that it was impossible to talk about 100% controllability of processes in the LC from Moscow. And this has been fixed. For three days.

Igor Plotnitsky lost. And he lost, not when a column of military equipment from the territory of the DPR entered Lugansk, but much earlier. He lost when, having started his game, he could not remain necessary to the system.

Ukraine and Donbass are waiting for change

The fact that Ukraine as a whole, and in particular the Donbass, is waiting for a change, is not only said by the lazy one. In recent months, a lot of iconic events have happened and more should happen in the very near future.

Donald Trump gradually enters the course of affairs in Ukraine and begins his game there. Kurt Volker literally lives on a plane, jerking between Washington, European capitals and Kiev. He is trying to build the new relationship matrix for Trump so that it does not interfere with the chief’s main foreign policy task: reach an agreement with Russia and untie his hands against China and Iran. And here Washington is ready to make any "sacrifices." Until the complete withdrawal from Ukraine.

Of course, temporarily, the next “pro-Russian” president will not put all the negatives of the current pro-American “pan-Armenian” onto the head of Moscow.

Although it can not be excluded that Trump is playing with Putin and honestly.

This game really does not like the American "democratic" opposition that has lost power. She considers it a "zrada" and every time hints Trump to impeach. She still manages to put a spoke in the wheels of the new administration in the White House, but she wants more. The “Opposition” wants to blow up the situation in Ukraine, in order not only to drive a wedge between Trump and Putin and prevent them from reaching an agreement, but also to create a situation when any agreements between them will become impossible.

Anticipating provocations and possible complications, Moscow began to prepare the counter-play toolkit “for all occasions”.

To this end, in the summer of 2017, the idea of ​​creating “Little Russia” was thrown into the information space. Why is this done? If suddenly hotheads in Washington still risk starting a risky game of revolution against the “legitimate” Poroshenko, then Ukraine will quickly be constructed on the basis of Donbass, which will start the fight not for the former Donetsk and Lugansk regions (the LC and the DPR do not see themselves further ), and for the whole "Nenko." That is, until the Rava-Russian.

By the way, the project “Novorossiya” has not been forgotten either. He was laid on the shelf until the moment when Kiev started playing and finally disrupting the Minsk process. That, as we remember, was in the spring of 2015 of the year at the same time that the speaker of the Novorossiya parliament, Oleg Tsarev, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the DPR, Alexander Kofman, simultaneously reported on a temporary freeze of their “brainchild”.

And there is also the Minsk process itself, which so far is verbally committed to all parties to the conflict and all the “guarantors” behind them. And here too, according to the Kremlin strategists, nothing should prevent Moscow from pursuing its line.

Ukraine returns to editorial

It is already obvious that the two-year “hibernation” in Ukraine has come to an end, and therefore both Moscow and Washington must be completely sure that no local initiative will ruin their big game. And it is not by chance that we both in Kiev and Lugansk saw almost simultaneously similar processes. Washington and Moscow are beginning to restore the controllability of their “tools” in order to expand the fork of possible solutions for themselves in the future.

The US is not succeeding yet. Mykhomaydan loading, so plainly and not starting, and the anti-corruption scandals in the United States and Europe against Poroshenko have not yet given the expected result. The regime in Kiev tenaciously holds power in its hands and is not even going to share it with its American allies, which is great to prevent it from leading the Ukrainian party.

Moscow in Lugansk put things in order quickly, in just a few days. And by the end, she did not create any problems for herself and today she can appoint practically any person to the position of the “leader of the LPR”. Thus, the fork of further decisions she has dramatically expanded, and process control is fully restored. Today, Russia is ready from the republics of Donbass to blind everything that it needs. From fully obedient and sharpened under the Minsk process, the LC and the DNI to "Novorossiya" and "Little Russia" (or whatever they might be called). And most importantly, as quickly as possible.

And at the same time, they chased the local officials who were snickering, who disgrace her and those ideas that she personifies.

Which scenario will be historywill see. Why is it now pointless to guess about this? The fact is that Moscow does not need to hurry. She is completely satisfied with the processes that are happening in Ukraine today. She is ready for any development of events and has prepared for this a variety of tools.

Americans need to hurry. But they cannot start a meaningful and clear game, since they cannot regain full control over Kiev. There are too many ifs. "If" Trump can push his line ... If the American "opposition" can blow up the situation in Ukraine ... And so on. And therefore anything can happen.

The main result of the “optimization” of management in Lugansk is that Moscow is ready to respond quickly to any change in the situation. And even strike a blow on the enemy, if he makes a big mistake in his actions (and this is despite the chaos that is happening in Washington, it is quite possible) and will give her that opportunity.

        The head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People's Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky arrived in Moscow. About it RBC said the deputy commander of the battalion for work with the personnel of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) writer Zakhar Prilepin. “I flew with him on the same plane, we met with him,” he said.
        Prilepin wrote on his VKontakte page that Plotnitsky flew to Moscow from Rostov on a regular flight. “Economy class, calm person without security. Generally one. We met with his eyes, he showed nothing. Doesn't look preoccupied. Almost peaceful, ”he emphasized. hi

        It would be logical to plant a “Chekist floor” in Lugansk, following the example of the CIA’s actions in the Security Service of Ukraine and not allowing people like Plotnitsky to come to power in the LPR, filtering through checks of all his fraudsters.
        How many copies were broken, how many words were said into the void in 2014 and 2015 regarding the personnel policy in the Donetsk direction. And about the constant humiliation of field commanders-nuggets by Moscow curators (the same Motorola and Givi suffered this only with unprecedented willpower). And about the selection for political positions of "socially close" from the environment of Akhmetov and Kurchenko

        In any case, from the military point of view, the DNR and LNR corps should be under the same command. This is an axiom. In general, if we take economic issues, political processes, social problems, logistics, etc., then what is the point of separate existence DNI and LC? It seems that besides the local interest of the indigenous officials, there are no other explanations for this phenomenon.

            A sabotage group of 10 people was detained by the state security organs of the Donetsk and Lugansk people's republics. The detainees are suspected of preparing the killings of the heads of republics. It is specified that the detention operation was carried out jointly with representatives of the LPR and DPR. Saboteurs acted on the instructions of the main intelligence department (GUR) of Ukraine, says on friday November 24, representative of the press service of the Ministry of State Security of the DPR. "This group operated on the territory of both republics and is suspected of preparing attempts on a number of top officials of the DPR and LPR," the speaker adds.
            The investigation established that the detainees are not the only group created by the GUR of Ukraine. So, the "colleagues" of the defendants were previously detained in the LPR. According to investigators, they are involved in murders and attempts on the territory of the republic. Another part of the group came to Donetsk when an unsuccessful attempt was made to assassinate the Deputy Prime Minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic Alexander Timofeev. After these detentions, it was decided to conduct a joint operation by the DNR and LC. "The operational-search measures aimed at identifying all the persons included in the group are ongoing," the spokesman adds. (Orthodox Channel Tsargrad 14:42. 24.11.2017.) hi

              In general, while preserving the nominal "independence" of the republics, the state bodies of the DPR and LPR closely cooperate with each other and are possibly even interconnected by unity of command (unofficial).

    . Today, Russia is ready to mold everything that it needs from the republics of Donbass. From completely obedient and imprisoned by the Minsk process, the LPR and the DPR to Novorossia and Little Russia (or whatever else they may call it). And most importantly, as quickly as possible.

    It is difficult to disagree with this, instead of a genuine popular New Russia, where there is no dominance of the oligarchs, two incomprehensible puppet fragments were obtained, completely managed by the Kremlin curators. And all who did not agree, all genuine national heroes, commanders - at a loss.

    Is there at least one confirmation of this opus ?! The other day, such news came out fellow
    “The House of Representatives of the US Congress approved the draft law on the US budget for 2018 for the needs of the national defense, which allows the allocation of 350 million dollars to provide assistance to Ukraine in the field of security. This amount corresponds to last year’s appropriation level "
    Thus, the plug for further solutions has expanded dramatically, and process control has been fully restored.
    Again, this kind of expanding "fork" laughing - the phrase is certainly beautiful, but how it relates to the events described is incomprehensible. In fact, some security officials blamed others - than this Cornet (whose daughter is studying at the prosecutor in Kharkov) is not known in principle better than Plotnitsky; among the heroes of the Russian Spring 2014 he was not seen, so it looks more like a gnawing of spiders in a bank

    No games in line with the systematic (from all sides of the conflict) Jewish goal-setting will bring good to the Slavic peoples.
    Indeed, the geopolitical imprisonment of the “Maidan” is obvious, it’s now carefully avoided, and in the beginning, the super-obvious Israeli roots, disguised as the USA, haven’t disappeared anywhere and the deliberate misrepresentation of names only reveals its unchanged, subtly anti-popular, manipulative essence, in which tactical victories are involved only as a prescribed long-term scenario of permacolonial containment of RUSSIA, distracting it from the tasks of ensuring sustained harmonious development. without a separate line of goal-setting for Israel and an attorney geopolitical component in this conflict, it’s impossible to get a prescription for its solution, the Plotnitsky’s will change their deputies, the Euro-oligarchic power will destroy the people's commanders, and all this within the framework of an excessively extended as a result of an uncontrolled and accordingly incomprehensible transition to a post-usurious models of world order.
    Constructive proposals in this case are the revival of Novorosia in a new cycle of triune ecosocial harmony, with which, it all started in 2013, and to suppress which (including) the Jewish Maidan was organized.

    Notice, meeting with Putin for any first leader of foreign countries is like a ritual of initiation for a civilized society. It’s like going to a lion’s cage. Entered - all man .. You can edit. This is such a subtle trolling of explosives. Between themselves, I think they stupidly agreed to pat him on the shoulder, saying that they highly value the importance of Russia in the international arena and they neigh until shit when they get out of the cage .. As for me, BB has not solved anything for a long time either in Ukraine or even in my own country. This is not the Putin who wet the militants in Chechnya. This is another Putin. This merged with the oligarchs through a united Russia which has the vast majority of votes in the Duma and they rule there as they want. Where is the abolition of roaming in Russia, where is the ban on educating the children of officials abroad, where the bankers are planting money-withdrawing investors from Russia and Nabiulin only “saves” the banks by issuing state money in them. The state defense orders both failed and fail and the money is jute and all do not care. (Bankruptcy of the Novokuznetsk Car-Building Plant, Russia's nuclear submarines may be left without nuclear reactors.) Maybe the independent newspaper slanders, but then why the prosecutor’s office does not initiate criminal proceedings on the fact of slander. Or maybe this is also the lack of power in the country? Personally, I did not vote for VV, I won’t sing Difirambov.

    Donald Trump is gradually getting involved in Ukraine and begins his game there

    It seems to be included not only in the course, but also in taste.

    Surkov’s leadership is seen behind all these gestures. Apparently he was paid little Ukrainians, so he decided to take up Lugansk. If Amerikosy will crouch the plane of greens, then Zakharcheko will be immediately removed, and Moguey and Donbass will hand over with guts. You can expect anything from this nits. But the FSB worked clearly. They can work. when a rooster pecks at a causal place.
