Who to believe in the DPR? Power is strange, but the opposition is playing along with the enemy


The opposition is bustling ...

We can say that at the moment, the Donetsk authorities are experiencing unprecedented pressure from the local opposition, which in its actions practically jumped over Ukrainian propaganda and actively presses all the sick corns of the republic, fanning not only real problems, but also inventing them (or using the fiction of Ukrainian propaganda).

Criticism of power has long gone beyond the reasonable: against the background of a very real debt on salaries to miners (which, by the way, they promised to pay off before the end of the year) and interruptions in the implementation of the budget expenditures, throws are actively used about the spread of tuberculosis, expensive food in kindergartens, and trade in state property etc.

In principle, at the moment it is not possible to separate local oppositionists (as well as their friends who were expelled for various sins from the LDP) from Ukrainian professional disinfectors: it seems that they have common manuals. What is most interesting, actively playing along with the enemy (for which, most likely, you will have to answer), the Donetsk opposition is hardly able to achieve significant success: its audience is 30-40 of thousands of Internet soldiers, which even if elections are held in LDP Ukrainian legislation, they will not be given serious chances of victory.

Frankly, after the 2018 election of the year, the fact that “wrong” candidates will be allowed to participate in the elections seems highly unlikely.

... and the authorities are inactive?

At the same time, the Donetsk authorities, instead of developing and implementing an effective strategy for fighting on the information front and establishing a real dialogue with society, continue to either play silence, or, even worse, give the floor to their “specialists” from the Ministry of Information, which in a good way would be better to be modestly silent (or at least several times to think before each statement).

As a result, amid large-scale informational pressure, the authorities hardly contribute to the growth of trust in them, trying to hush up problems or make a carefree look where it is necessary to communicate with people, explain their position, and look for solutions. Yes, it’s worth recognizing that, in general, the information policy of the Pushilin’s apparatus is an order of magnitude better than the frank disregard for public opinion during the reign of Zakharchenko.

And yet, the fact that official Donetsk responds to variegated stuffing and real revealing articles is clearly not enough today. The failed information policy and the attacks of the opposition are draining the small credit of trust in the government and destroying what is left of its popularity.

Is everything calm in LNR?

While in Donetsk the pro-government toad is fiercely fighting the opposition viper, in neighboring Lugansk, in principle, suffering from all the same problems, everything is relatively calm. First of all, this is undoubtedly connected with the purge that was carried out in the ranks of the local opposition in the 2015-2017 years, but this is not important. In the end, many opposition members work from Russia, being completely safe (not to mention the fact that the Lugansk throne does not attract them too much).

More importantly, another is the work of the internal policy department in the LPR, which is constantly monitoring social networks and media, trying to instantly respond to any complaints from citizens if not in deed, then at least in word.

Local media also work well: they even criticize local officials, various departments, etc. People don’t have the feeling that they are perceived as weak-minded, constantly raping their minds with cheerful the news and bravura statements. As a result, when someone begins to sow decadent moods in the same social networks or engage in pro-Ukrainian propaganda, the reaction follows, as a rule, quite violent.

Well, and most importantly: probably in 2017, when they overthrew Igor Plotnitsky, they explained to local officials something that was missing from Donetsk managers. As a rule, some high-profile scandals in Lugansk do not occur, and if it does, it flies quite quickly to the culprits.

In a good way, Donetsk should take the experience of its colleagues from the LPR, but this is hindered by the presence of “non-moving experts” in the Ministry of Information and general carelessness - it will probably carry it through. However, 2018 year proved that heedlessness is a game of Russian roulette.

        This is how you need to be "smart" to shit in your own house? There is a war going on, and the undermining of the political situation in the DPR is one of the main goals of the policy of the Ukrainian oligarchic junta, which is actually held hostage by the United States with its money. Therefore, pro-American propagandists in Ukraine have a well-founded desire, backed up by handouts, to take away the last crumbs of sovereignty from the people of the LDNR for which they shed their blood - they have already sold their conscience and freedom on the Maidan to a handful of neo-Nazis with Bandera flags and torches. Hence, such articles and opinions appear that would shift from a sore head to a healthy one. Maybe some kind of virtual people in the LPR and would be led to divorce in the media by worthy opposition and bad local oligarchs. It’s just difficult for a man who goes under fire every day and blames his defenders and his power for everything.
        Only publications in the media and statements by politicians about "contradictions and problems" in the LPNR are only a small part at the beginning of the next terrorist provocation before the start of the summit in the Normandy format. Last time the email ended in a terrorist attack with the murder of the leader of the DPR, Zakharchenko. Now, the scriptwriters of the SBU and the CIA probably prepared provocations of no less scale.

          In Russia in 2018, 18094 people died in road accidents. This is what I understand, war.
          In Afghanistan, over 9 thousand people died in 15 years.
          In 2018, 8 thousand intentional killings were registered in the Russian Federation in XNUMX.
          The current "sit-down war" with casualties of one and a half people a week is not a reason not to try to normalize life.

So that people do not suffer, especially the elderly, with citizenship. Only 2 regions to take (within the borders of February 2014), I, you, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation can not?
                  Just don't write about money and "sanctions" - you need to help your own people, and not think about money and profits. The people's militia of Donbass, the Russian people shed their blood for the right to live without Ukraine.

    At the average level of leadership in the departments in the DPR, a mass of repainted dill remained. As they sat there under Yanukovych, they still sit there. For them, the capital in Kiev.
    They are not public. They are not visible. But they are doing their dirty deed. Russians quietly hate the new government too. And therefore, as much as they harm, sabotage. On good, in DNR it would be necessary to carry out lustration.
    Yes, the trouble is: the new cadres in the power of the DPR are not prepared for governing the state. Neither professional nor mental. They do not possess state thinking. Nowhere, and there was no time to form it. Therefore, the ease of thought is extraordinary. Therefore, the results are scanty. Although the declarations are correct.
    Cadres decide everything.

Their most important task is to sit in warm places for as long as possible and enrich themselves as much as possible. I personally saw it.

    Back in 2014, when the Donetsk euphoria came after the Crimean euphoria, smart people, including those from Donbass, spoke directly and unequivocally that the entire Novorossiysk booch was the implementation of the plan (and actions) of a group of Ukrainian oligarchs of the new wave who wished to jump out from under Poroshenko, Kolomoisky and take the upper echelon of economic dominance in the region.
    They fell into the hands of popular demonstrations against the Kiev junta, which were used to the full.
    Now, apparently, there is a new redistribution.
    There is no desire to go under Russian capital. And then: does it really matter who cuts you - Kiev or Moscow? After all, you are finally CUT!
    So there is a search for a new, own way in the matter of further sharing and enrichment.
    Fortunately, Moscow cannot directly and rigidly dictate its terms based on the Kremlin’s official position on New Russia. As well as Kiev's hands are short ....
    The path is slippery and dangerous, but in the end it is "their" cabinet problems.
    In this case, as always, a simple people acts as a hostage and sufferer.

        Is it possible to expect that Russia will take radical steps in bringing the Donbass closer to itself?
        Geopolitical questions are solved for years, sometimes for decades.
        Today, the state of affairs is such that the weak (to say the least) Russian economy does not allow it to appear recklessly and boldly on the international scene.
        In addition to this, we are not loved in the world.
        Our country is not a guide for anyone.
        Even for Belarus and Kazakhstan.
        The consequences of the Crimean aggravation showed that we can’t survive the possible Donetsk aggravation without catastrophic consequences.
        That's why
        a) Pessimistic option: Donbass remains in (on) Ukraine with a certain special status, which will soon be poher.
        The Russian language will be given regional status;
        b) Optimistic: New Russia will acquire a status comparable to Abkhazia.

    Locals do not fight with anyone. The population wants to live in peace. For example, as Odessa residents (how many people there were burned again after that incident, zero?). The people need peace and work. And independence there is not 90% rested.
    To them, the interests of the Russian Federation, for which the mahach goes there, are uninteresting. So the opposition is quite possible and stands just for the interests of the local population.
    And the increase in milk production, coal production, smelting of pig iron, this is all our country has already passed.

    Putin, with a stroke of the pen, deprived all the illusions of ukro-Bandera fascists, the USA, EU and NATO, for the war between Ukraine and Russia. He, Putin, made them like little blind and helpless puppies easily and simply. Putin is the true owner of planet Earth.
    A completely different socio-political process is taking shape here. The fact is that after receiving Russian citizenship by the main part of Ukrainians, the state of Ukraine, as a state, can simply disappear, "like dew on the sun," just like it is sung in the Ukrainian anthem, only not enemies, but Ukraine itself, will perish.
    After obtaining Russian citizenship by the soldiers and commanders of the DPR and LPR, and this will happen first of all, these armies will already be Russian, as in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
    Then the APU will already be at war with Russia. This will be a political metamorphosis.
    And all this mouse fuss with the withdrawal of troops, with the law on land, with television shows, with the return of sailors and ships is just a smokescreen for Svidomo Selyuk and the West from the USA.
