This is a direct invasion. Volker accused Russia of starting a war in the Donbas

67
The US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker during a briefing in Slavyansk said that in the Donbass "there is no conflict among Ukrainians, there is no ethnic and civil confrontation." The cynical statement of the "Gauleiter of Ukraine" leads the publication "Apostrof".


This is a direct invasion. Volker accused Russia of starting a war in the Donbas


This conflict is the result of direct invasion of Russia to the east of Ukraine. Russia directly controls the armed forces in the region, and also exercises political control over the occupied territories.
- declared Walker. According to him, “the withdrawal of Russian troops” is the best way to protect the Russian-speaking population of Donbass.

Earlier, Volker said that he would not go to Donetsk and Lugansk until these cities returned to Ukrainian control. He also stated that he would never recognize the DNI and the LC.

Representatives of the West, including Volker, have repeatedly accused Russia of supporting the militias in the east of Ukraine, and of directly participating in the conflict of the Russian troops. However, evidence of these allegations was not presented. Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the conflict in the Donbas.

    Or maybe the other way around? When the whole erysipelas is down, the best way to divert attention from yourself is to point your finger at another.
    Again, the allegations are unsubstantiated. The United States occupied Syria, Iraq, Libya, why not talk about it?

        They called it not to destabilize the situation in the country, but to teach democracy. At the same time, when people were shot on the Maidan, or when they burned the House of Trade Unions, this is also a democratic process.
        There is no place to put stigmas on the mattress politicians of the past and today.

      Unfortunately, our own leaders of the country and the diplomatic corps are not smart enough to immediately give a harsh answer.
      The fact is that our Russian troops are not there, although many even Russian people from couch strategists claim the opposite. After all, if at least some Russian military units were in dLonbass, then OSCE observers would certainly notice them, and Americans from satellites too. And besides, it may seem strange to you, but Putin back in 2014 allowed Ukrainian border guards to remain at the border and fulfill their duties under the protection of Russia. And everyone is silent about this. Of course, Ukrainian border guards are not allowed to rob civilians traveling from Donbass to Russia and vice versa. And also volunteers without arms go to Donbass from Russia freely. But volunteers are not mercenaries or regular units; they can be walked on. But the Ukrainian border guards and OSCE observers are silent about the movement of Russian troops across the border. Means Donbass has no Russian troops at all!
      Therefore, it would be easier for Russian dignitaries to expose this Walker: all that is needed is to invite him to withdraw all Russian troops from the territory of Donbass, which he will find there in the presence of OSCE members and hundreds of foreign journalists. That is, let him come to Donbass under Russian protection and poke at any military unit, and ask: Are you from Russia or not?
      Let me remind you, if anyone does not know: any Russian military has its own banner, has a headquarters, and has military equipment. And there is a full guarantee that this damned Walker will not find any Russian troops there! And he will only be dishonored in front of foreign journalists!

      Only Russia does not need to make excuses that in Ukraine, that in Syria. Need to act, and tough. Donbass "cancer" stood up in the hope of Russia and what ...?
      Is this situation beneficial for Russia? Hardly...
      So it was necessary to recognize them, you see, (with our help) and others would be pulled up and the Crimean bridge would not be so relevant.
      It seems that the Donbass rebelled looking at the Crimea, they thought Russia would support, but it won’t ...
      And if they recognized Donbass, other territories would also behave differently, especially eastern Ukraine.
      Looking around all the time at what will be said in the phishington and london is a sign of self-doubt.
      They do not look at the blah blah blah of our diplomats, they do what is in their filthy interests ...

And on the other - just people who benefit a foreign country (USA) by the fact that they are bastards? How to come to:

    First, prepare and conduct a coup, create all conditions for a civil war, inflate the hostility of a separate part of the Ukrainian people to Russians living in Ukraine. Now, when Bandera began to kill ethnic Russians and the ethnic conflict in Ukraine “blossoms and smells”, it must be stated that there is no confrontation in Ukraine, but there is an invasion of Russia.
    The behavior of the United States in Ukraine directly tells the whole world: "Who is stronger is right." Therefore, do not be surprised that while Bandera is killing Russians in Ukraine, Russia will help its own.

    Volker accused Russia of starting a war in the Donbas
    If Russia can be accused of anything here, it’s only that they did not recognize the choice of Donbass, after the anti-constitutional coup in Kiev. You can blame the Russian authorities for saying that this anti-constitutional coup, about the Bandera junta, having a legitimate president and prime minister, nevertheless, still recognized the elections held by this junta under direct participation in the CIA process, Bandera allowed legalized power. In addition, the brazen and cynical intervention of the United States on our borders, in Ukraine, went unpunished, as did the vile behavior of the "guarantors" from the EU. So, as Publius Sire, the Roman poet of the epoch of Caesar and Augustus, used to say, "Forgive one insult, and you will certainly inflict many of them." We should not blame Russia for the events in the former Ukraine, but the US, but as long as we sit in their system, we play by their rules, and we will reckon with capitalist realism, wiping off Western spittle.

        But in the newspaper "Express" an article was published that the International Monetary Fund recalculated data on the Russian economy taking into account the shadow sector, and it turned out that Russia is actually not in 12, but in fourth (4) place! After the USA, China and India. And if we take into account that the US economy has a significant share of currency speculation, and if we also take into account that the economy of India, for example, is underdeveloped, it produces mainly kilometers of toilet paper, and Russia builds absolutely everything: right up to fast neutron reactors. Then the position of Russia in the world should be assessed more realistically, rather than 1,8%.

    They wrote comments, and no one asked themselves the question: WHY was it to annex Crimea, having abandoned the entire southeast of Ukraine? After all, it was clear that the “partners” would never forgive such a step and would exert powerful pressure. Now we have got a small piece of a large territory and the consequences, clearly not commensurate with this step.
    2014 was a watershed year. Putin received powerful support from the population, support from patriots. Inside the country, it was possible to carry out new industrialization, complete reformatting of the state apparatus, and the elimination of oligarchs from the feeding trough. It was necessary to create a starting point - reunion, at least partially, with Ukraine and Belarus. But Putin took a different path. Frightened by the passionarity of the people. This mistake will kill him.

    This is a direct invasion. Volker accused Russia of starting a war in the Donbas

    Also news to me. Strelkov spoke about this as far back as 3 a year ago.

    directly controls the armed forces in the region, and also exercises political control over the occupied territories

    What a nice universal phrase.
    It can be applied to dozens of regions around the world ... If you first put: USA

    He also said that he would never recognize the DNI and LC

    So what: the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, too, no one except Turkey does not recognize, this does not prevent it from existing for 44 years.

    This Amer’s kodl should often be poked into their own sins, and not be silent and not apologize for non-existent "supposedly crimes." We are stubbornly unwilling to hear and it's time to get used to it, and act in the interests of our COUNTRY ...

    I’m not going to Donetsk and Lugansk yet another example of “Western” logic, but I know that there is no conflict between Ukrainians. In general, “there is no evidence, but we are sure of it”
