Zelensky's office tried to add specificity to the president's statement on the referendum on Donbass

36

In Ukraine, they continue to discuss the statement of President Volodymyr Zelensky on the possible holding of a referendum on the situation in Donbass. Recall that Zelensky said a few days earlier that a plebiscite could be held on this issue, which he himself cannot organize, but can accept "by virtue of presidential powers." According to Zelensky, a referendum in this case can be initiated by the Ukrainian people.


Today in the office of the Ukrainian president they tried to bring specifics into the statement of the head of state.

Advisor to the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Mikhail Podolyak spoke about the possibility of a nationwide vote on the situation in Donbass.

According to Mr. Podolyak, Ukraine will hold a referendum on the Donbass issue "if the negotiation process requires it." At the moment, as the Ukrainian official clarifies, "there are no such requests and specific initiatives."

At the same time, Mikhail Podolyak pointedly added that the topic of Donbass at the referendum, if one is organized, will not be the only one. "And other topics for discussion and voting" are assumed. What kind of topics Kiev is going to put up for a popular vote, if such is still planned, the adviser to the head of Zelensky's office did not say.

Ukrainian experts, meanwhile, note that all these statements are made deliberately - on the eve of the meeting between Biden and Putin, which is to be held in Geneva on June 16.

    Why not hold a referendum in Russia on the ownership of Kiev ?! winked

    A referendum in the region can only be held by citizens of the region, in Crimea - by Crimeans, in Donbass - by Donetsk residents.
    Zelya, from which side are you here?
    With the same success, Zelensky can hold a referendum in Alaska on the ownership of Alaska to Ukraine, there was once Ukraine as part of Russia ...

      The referendum on the globe of Ukraine is just in their style. Like other bilibird.

      In relation to Russians, Jews, Armenians, Belarusians, Hungarians, Poles and Gypsies, millions of citizens of Ukraine, therefore, "forced assimilation" and "incitement to hatred" are not prohibited? Well, in general, they really are not prohibited.

      “The Russian language does not exist at all. There is a northern dialect of the Ukrainian language, "said Ivan Vinnik, deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, member of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction.

      “We have one way - to destroy Moscow, for this we live, for this we came to this world to destroy Moscow. To destroy not just Muscovites on our lands, but a black hole in European security that needs to be wiped off the map of the world, ”said Irina Farion, a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, a member of the Svoboda party.

      Torchlight processions of neo-Nazis on the streets of Ukrainian cities in honor of the SS Galicia division, the ban on the use of the Russian language in many areas, and the civil war in Donbass itself, the current authorities are trying to justify precisely by oppressing the "indigenous people of Ukraine", which allegedly lasted hundreds of years.

      Zelensky, impressed by this argumentation, it turns out, defined himself in the caste of second-class people who have fewer rights than the "indigenous" - he comes from Krivoy Rog, the city that was built by the Russian empress, according to the current Kiev standards of the "occupant", not otherwise, well, the Jewish blood of the current president of Ukraine, it turns out, also does not attract the "root blood".



      “What we see today in textbooks for secondary schools is a falsification, a scam, they overturn our current concepts and terms and our present perception into the past and create a narrative that does not exist. All these stories about Rus-Ukraine, about the Ukrainian land, which almost Ptolemy the Greek depicted in its present outlines. And there was no Ukraine, and there were no Ukrainians. And there was no such people, and such a concept, this is an increasingly late thing, ”says the academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, director of the Institute of Archeology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Petro Tolochko.



      ... The oligarchs who rule the impoverished country have relied on the most vulgar political technology of radical nationalism. Proceeding from the thesis: since the Ukrainian state has been formed, then it is necessary to somehow create the Ukrainians, otherwise they very much resemble the Russians.

      “What is written in these manuals? Chapter: "The expulsion of Napoleon's troops from Russia by Ukrainian regiments." For example, the patriotic work "Taras Bulba" is being translated into Russian. From there, not only all words with the root "rus" are thrown away, but the concept of such is thrown out in general, replaced by Ukrainian. It comes, you know, to idiocy. But this idiocy is understood by people of the older generations. They have something to compare, but the new generation, they get it from the very beginning, "- says the writer Sergei Sokurov.

      Textbooks explaining that the Ukrainian people appeared on the planet even before the appearance of modern humans, long before the Cro-Magnons, that this people is 200 or 300 thousand years old, that it was the proto-ukry that taught mankind how to grow wheat and mint coins, are written for a pseudo-historical substantiation of the unconditional rights of the same "higher caste".

    In Ukraine, they continue to discuss the statement of President Volodymyr Zelensky on the possible holding of a referendum on the situation in Donbass.

    Conduct a referendum on reunification with the Russian Federation. And it turns out that under the sworn dictators of the communists, there was an option to secede from the USSR, and under the bright-faced democrats, strictly territorial integrity, the bolt was put on the right of peoples to self-determination.

      The reasons are commonplace. War, 13,22% of territories, an impartial image of the Russian Federation, incitement to hatred of Ukrainians in Russian society, etc.
      In the Russian Federation, it is now unattractive for all projects of unions and associations. It is necessary, as in the novel Peter 1. To start from Moscow ...

Further, only the opening of new markets for themselves, and not charity.

            Look here. After the unification of Germany, the population on the territory of the former GDR "ate" 1.3 trillion euros more than it produced, and this was already in the year 2009. Of course, they made a mistake there, but Ukraine, you can be sure, has already done the same several times. And for all this, the Germans of the former West Germany paid the solidarity tax.

            And this despite the fact that the population there was under 16,5 million. And you can’t even imagine what the adventure with the 40 million-strong state will result in. And you may not even hope for help
            which Poland received. Just get it out of your head. They even offered Azarov some crumbs, but without any guarantees, and after that they decided to take it by force.

            So, do you really think that the Ukrainians have seriously surrendered to someone? When the market is already overproduction and everyone is looking for new sales markets? Do you seriously, like naive children, believe that someone will give you money to improve the economy? Do you think it is in their best interest to raise another competitor? Are you that naive? You live in the world of pink ponies, where everyone wants to help each other. Who will give Ukraine that kind of money? Even those more than 100 billion were not given, which Azarov asked. And these were just expenses for the modernization of enterprises, the transition to new standards, documentation, etc. Just so as not to bend right after the signing of the association. ASSOCIATIONS - I will even single out. And then many, and it is not necessary to assert the opposite, thought it almost the same as joining the EU, or at least a very close prospect. No, guys))) No, it's not about that at all. This is purely for an illiterate public. And many
            referred to the experience of other countries. Only here is the experience of the experience of strife. It's one thing when your government signs documents in the interests of your state, being able to defend the same
            interests, and the other is when such events, one might say fateful for the country, are pushed through the street. In one case, a competent policy, and in the other, they push
            legs, elementary without reading the documents that are going to sign. And in the latter case, no one will stand on ceremony with you, and rest assured, you will be fucked to the fullest.

            You talk a lot about development, only moving forward, but where can people move who just jump for something they haven't read? Such suckers are only created to be bred.
            Isn't that so? Is it a person who just compared the standard of living in his country, and for example in the EU, someone went on his own, many through the monitor, unless that's just because of this
            can they consider themselves smarter? People who are moving towards progress? Well, yes, he just voiced the fact that people live more prosperously, and laws work better, and
            the infrastructure is better, etc. But then what? What does this information give? The fact that you can now be bred as the last ....?
            And in order to make progress, you need to be able to use your brain and read what is written. By the time I started to study this, the translation into Russian was half ready.
            ... This I will notice is not an official translation. For there was at least Greek, though Estonian, but there was no Russian. And the text there is already quite complicated to parse it in the English version, but maybe it's me personally.
            So if all these bawlers first read and then shouted in the squares, then this nonsense would not come to them, for example: "Yatsenyuk demands to reduce gas tariffs by 30%"
            https://www.unian.net/politics/864664-yatsenyuk-trebuet-snijeniya-tarifov-dlya-naseleniya-na-gaz.html
            And they would have booed him, because he is lying and after the signing the prices would have risen significantly. What now isn't it? If the previous government raised tariffs by literally a few kopecks, and this was the case, in my opinion gas then cost more than 70 kopecks, then after signing the prices would have gone up. For it says that tariffs must now be regulated by the market. Although
            here you need to have more extensive knowledge in order to understand that they will definitely not become lower. At least the prices in the payment system and in the market)) For low tariffs, low labor costs, coupled with access to the European market
            will lead to the arrival of European companies in this country, which will begin to receive income to the detriment of their citizens and will deprive those of jobs. And I'm not talking about the quotas that were
            installed, more of which cannot be exported. They protected their citizens there to the smallest detail.
            Even after the protests against the increase in tariffs, when the Cabinet of Ministers fixed the gas price for a couple of months, there was anger from the EU. For they signed completely under
            to others, and the authorities have no right to do so. They violate the agreement, thereby violating the foundations of equal treatment and non-discrimination. Under which we subscribed. But so far they are being given concessions.
            The same thing happened when trying to support the domestic engineering industry. The same non-discrimination and equal treatment. For there are clearly stated conditions for localization, etc.
            And what do we have ?:
            - According to technical norms and standards, we have a complete failure, because no one has given money for modernization, etc. To put it simply, a corpse. For example, the organization of the SQM quality management system at the enterprise requires a lot of money. And so you will get a discrepancy between the goods and technical quality standards. And what did they want, did they sign themselves? And it turns out that no one gave money for modernization, the Ukrainian market was flooded with European goods. And so go and compete. Here is such a progress.
            - According to quotas and restrictions, fail again, because everything is strictly fixed
            - At tariffs, the cost of which makes the products produced by Ukraine uncompetitive. For here you get expensive and of poor quality. In Europe, the quality is, well, maybe you will overpay a little
            Or else they can launch their own anti-dumping duty mechanism. When even the value of the goods is calculated taking into account the wages of a European worker, not a Ukrainian. Otherwise it will be considered unfair competition.

            And so on down the list. Personally, I did not see any progress in these documents, etc.
            Can they throw handouts and loans against loans? Yes. But again, under the reforms they need, laws, people in the Supervisory Councils, etc.
            It is even stupid to compare what Poland's conditions were, both access to markets and gratuitous aid in the form of large sums. It will return everything in the country, and it will also open its market (la)

            Kiev NSDC uses only for prominent people. For ordinary people, it is too luxurious.
            Well, in Ukraine, the war, under it can. And they do. This is true, although this did not stop one and a half million Russians from visiting Ukraine in the pre-2019 year. However, with borders closed in 2020, in only 9 months, there are also 311 thousand Russians.
            I have not seen any inflated cases of their detention and arrest.

            I didn't write anything about ordinary people. You, apparently, are not reading carefully. Well, of course they do, but what's wrong with that? Where do you want to put the family roots of many generations? It used to be
            in general, there was one country. And they gave out a bunch of passports.

            War is just a convenient excuse to lead the population by the nose. If you read the documents, everything is pretty regrettable there. If Ukraine was needed, they would have long ago pushed through the implementation of the Minskers and integrated the Donbass, because Russia does not need it. And then they filled up with money and made a second Poland. But in fact, we see they needed a market, a fairly skilled labor force, a confrontation with Russia, etc.

            And then we wake up and see a bunch of unresolved problems in different Spain, Italy, Greece, etc. And we understand that no one cares. That's about how it was with vaccines. You can, go buy, punch. No, then don't get in the way and don't beg for help.

            Do you want to live like in Europe? Then learn the language and go there to work and study. Well, this is so as not to break off and not break off the life of others. To jump for something that I have not read, looking at beautiful pictures, well, such a thing.
            Or turn on your head in your country and try to change it. But that's a completely different story. It has nothing to do with walking in the squares

            Good luck, I'm ending here

        the results will be negative. Well, perhaps if the Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation is (there they will simply draw the necessary one) But if the honest and open, then the majority will say NO.
        The reasons are commonplace. War, 13,22% of territories, an impartial image of the Russian Federation, incitement to hatred of Ukrainians in Russian society, etc.

          a referendum is not a tool for revealing such preferences.
          In addition, the main representatives of the "migrant workers" now are representatives of the LPNR, here the diversity of opinions about Ukraine itself and Russia too ... and the possibility of their participation in the referendum is also questionable. It will be difficult for them, but having a passport and a controlled area is quite possible. If they do not first close the line of demarcation, they regularly vote from the "republics" at polling stations outside the LPR. In this way the elections are also influenced.
          By the way, the workers themselves in the Russian Federation will vote badly even if they wish. It is necessary to go to the consulate, far, expensive and no time.
