Volker forgot about the tragedy in the House of Trade Unions in Odessa

In an interview with German media, the US special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker said that the conflict in Donbass began allegedly from a hybrid war and “Russia's invasion” of Ukraine, and there is no hostility between the residents of Ukraine itself. In the number of "conflict-free" cities, he included Odessa.

According to Deutche Welle, Volker explained why, in his opinion, the conflict affected only part of eastern Ukraine.

Volker forgot about the tragedy in the House of Trade Unions in Odessa

In Odessa, Kiev, other regions of the east of the country there is no conflict between the residents, there is no discrimination. People in these places live a normal safe life, they work. So the conflict affected only one part of the east of Ukraine. Why? Because it began with a hybrid war, with the invasion of Russia in Ukraine. There were created various organizations that were empowered, and the armed militias, which Russia trains, fully supports and provides weapons. It continues to this day.
- declared Walker.

We will note that the conflict in the east of Ukraine affected Odessa directly. 2 May 2014 in Odessa during the confrontation with football fans and radicals from the "Right Sector *" supporters of federalization were forced to take refuge in the House of Trade Unions. After that, the Ukrainian nationalists set fire to the building, and those who tried to escape from the fire were shelled and finished off with sticks and stones. 48 dead - we recall, the official data of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.

According to the State Department special envoy, with the help of “hybrid” measures, Russia allegedly wanted to “bring more politicians in Kiev to power in order to keep the country in its sphere of influence”. At the same time, Volker declares that Moscow did not intend to “occupy” the whole of Ukraine by military means.

I do not think that the goal is it. Nevertheless, Russia is directly involved. But I think that it pursues rather political goals: to destabilize the country, influence Kiev’s policies and try to drive a wedge between Ukraine and the West. I do not think it works, but I think that the reason for the tension was partly
- he said, transmits "Look"

      Meanwhile ...
      "In February, presidential candidate Ksenia Sobchak will leave for the United States, she plans to speak at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, at Georgetown University and get to the National Prayer Breakfast, which is traditionally attended by US presidents." It is reported by the Russian service of the BBC.
      People, ay. Many here on the site condemn athletes on a trip to the Olympic Games. I also do not lag behind. But the mericatos have already achieved their goal, we curse all the “white Popokopnye” athletes, and our Guarantor, such as not a man !!! And will there still be? We are clearly losing in this war, we are citizens of Russia. So Walker said that there was nothing, but we immediately shouted that we would have to answer the provocation ..... So it’s also a provocation so that they don’t answer it !!!!

      These comrades are organizers and inspirers of everything connected with fanning hatred and hostility towards everything connected with Russia, including everything Soviet (implied to Russian). And in Dill there are many who want to warm up and earn extra money on this. Is this not a hybrid war ?!

      On October 14, 2014, during the celebration of the liberation of Zaporozhye, the authorities staged with the help of reenactors the rape scenes of Ukrainians by Soviet soldiers during the liberation of Zaporizhia. Curiously, the role of some rapists, Red Army soldiers played girls. This is from the bowels of Ukrainian life even before the Maidan revolution. Work on the brain of the Ukrainian people was in full swing.

    he forgot nothing. he simply outlined what they are doing in other gos.vy constantly. and the fact that people stood up and shook off the chains of the regime of Nazism, he did not mention. well, this is the collapse of their entire policy, which was arranged by brave people who wished to live the way they want, and not under Western supervision.

      Garik, Greetings, buddy!
      American politicians always walk with narrowed eyes so as not to see anything superfluous! And if they did, they beat themselves on the head in order to forget ... Generally they say that in order to lie, you need a good memory! Otherwise, you can get confused ... What do they periodically do.
      He just got confused!

        Ukraine does this not with dissidents, but with the indigenous Russian population of the territories of Russia occupied by Ukraine ... It behaves in the same way on occupied Russian lands and Kazakhstan, in the northern regions, which he also occupied during the time of the CPSU ...

    Americans always have a selective memory. They shout about Crimea forgetting Kosovo, they shout about Aleppo forgetting Cancer, etc. They only remember what represents their interests. On this and hold having great support from the world media.

      This has nothing to do with memory - however, politics is a vile, vile, decades-old Anglo-Saxon policy. What do you think, who organized the ISIS + al-Nusra nest in the Odessa region and why? With all the foolishness of the Kiev junta, they could not have done such a feint on their own. The ears of the US and Turkish special services are clearly sticking out. What are the goals of this event? Obviously not humanitarian. In addition, LDNR intelligence became aware of the impending provocation with a liner (according to the thumb pattern) before the elections in the Russian Federation. And all this is what the American Walker calls "Ukraine OK"? Abominable, like the United States itself.

    Well, human beings can also be understood. In order to drag Russia into the war with Svidomo, where the general people would strongly support the guerrilla war of Bandera scum (according to the script of the Satanist Brzezinski), a provocation with the killing of hundreds of Russian people was needed, the more brutal the better. To this end, chemists from our Middle Eastern partners also prepared special mixtures that, during combustion, formed combat agents. But it did not grow together. I had to retroactively reduce the number of people killed ten times. And then completely forget about them. But still the gallows are waiting for their heroes

    Sure! First, Russian saboteurs made their way to Maidan and shot the "Golden Eagle", the VV soldiers, police officers, and a little "heavenly hundred."
    Then, wearing masks and disguised as extremists, they advanced to Korsun, where they ambushed, shooting 8 Crimean buses with anti-Maidan soldiers.
    Then they moved to Odessa, where they provoked unrest and, following the example of the Old Believers, burned themselves.

    How can one negotiate with this messenger of the plague?

    Come on, who cares what he thinks, what Volker knows and does not know. And the very topic of Ukraine has already been called in. There is no position in the Kremlin in Ukraine and this is the problem. Although more precisely there is no money to resolve the issue in Ukraine, therefore, the conflict goes into a sluggish one.

    We add to the events in Odessa the inter-confessional conflict that swept ALL of Ukraine, which has not yet escalated into war, the clashes of law enforcement officers close to terror, language problems ... Mr. Walker is whistling like a copper kettle.

    Honestly, I don’t know German, but reprints are always subjective.
    Most likely Walker had in mind this stage, when the war is fought exclusively on the territory of the Ordilo. Odessa has long been a calm city, but in 2014 any city was not calm. As for Kiev, there are always some unrest (incitement to hatred of the Government group) in the center. Lviv was calm and remained.
    In general, it makes sense to blame Volker, what did he forget? Perhaps he has not forgotten anything. Maybe the word "now" is missing in the translation. So not the Americans were killed, but the citizens of Ukraine (and one citizen of the Russian Federation).

    Mariupol was forgotten as always. In Kharkov, the dissenters were quietly eliminated - the whole city was against the Natsiks. Everywhere people shut their mouths with bloody deeds. Dissenters were simply killed. Everywhere. If such methods begin to act against horses, then their number will decrease at times, and the rest will creep into the cellars instantly.
