The issuance of Russian passports to the soldiers of the Berkut detachment begins


The fighters of the Crimean "Berkut" support the decision of the leadership of Russia to begin issuing Russian passports to them and are ready to start issuing documents as soon as possible, said one of the commanders of the Crimean unit "Berkut".

“People who have come to power, we are not needed, we are enemies for them. We are threatened, we are going to be executed. Of course, in such conditions we will be glad to any defense, ”quotes the words of the officer of the special unit of the RIA News. He expressed confidence that if the opportunity to get a Russian passport will be provided, many of his colleagues will take advantage of it.

As previously reported, the fighters of the Ukrainian "Berkut" began to turn to Russia. For political asylum. The governor of the Astrakhan region, Alexander Zhilkin, in particular, confirmed that the region is ready to host them. Representatives of the Astrakhan business are ready to help to do this, budget spending is not provided, the head of the region said.

26 February Arsen Avakov, on whom the Parliament of Ukraine temporarily placed his duties as Minister of the Interior, disbanded the order of the special unit of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine “Berkut”, which opposed the demonstrators during protests in Kiev.

Recall that 18 February in Kiev, street riots acquired an unprecedented scale. An aggressively motivated crowd tried to approach the Parliament of Ukraine, the radicals broke into buildings in the center of Kiev, burned tires, threw stones and Molotov cocktails at the policemen. In the midst of the pogroms in Kiev, reports began to appear that snipers were working in the Ukrainian capital, who, according to reports from the Interior Ministry, used firearms weapon against the military "Berkut".

      I think the Berkut should go to the Crimea. Every effort must be made to evacuate the base. Of course, the special operation is very difficult, but otherwise people, remaining hostage by the Nazis, may die.

      Information expected but stunning!

      WASHINGTON, 1 March. / Corr. ITAR-TASS Dmitry Kirsanov. The managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, spoke in favor of Ukraine refraining from public demands for multi-billion external financial assistance at this stage.

      "We do not see (in Ukraine) anything critical that can serve as an excuse for panic at the moment," she said. “I think it is extremely premature to assess the financial needs of Ukraine,” Lagarde said.

      “We need to rely on facts, we need to rely on the situation as it is in reality,” said the head of the Foundation, speaking with reporters at the end of her meeting with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier. German Foreign Minister is in Washington on a visit.

      Lagarde also recalled the IMF’s decision to send a technical mission of its experts to Ukraine early next week. They will discuss with officials in Kiev not only the current, but also the future, or, as Lagarde put it, the expected, economic policy of Ukraine.

      For his part, Steinmeier, guided by a desire to reduce the financial burden on the EU, called for the widest possible range of participants to provide economic assistance to Ukraine. "Stabilization (of the situation) in Ukraine can only be successful if we attract as many partners as possible," the head of the German Foreign Ministry believes.

        Lagarde laughed, because ... InChera Yatsenyuk, when he realized that they didn’t give him money, said: Ukraine is ready for anything for the sake of this money. And tonight, the IMF representative flies to meet with Yatsenyuk.

          So to say for comparison what was and what will happen with the words of Yatseni !!! crying

          Revolutionary promises:
          "The leader of the Batkivshchyna faction, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, said that tariffs for housing and communal services, gas for the population should be reduced by 30%."
          Revolutionary reality:
          "According to the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk, in order to receive an IMF loan, the government is ready to take unpopular measures."
          (The IMF, they say, among other things, requires raising the price of gas twice for private individuals).

          He behaves this way because he is trying to establish order in the Western regions (it is clear that in his own way and "for himself", focusing on his goals and objectives, but still order).
          Before you start minus, think about this: It was reported that governors in 13 regions had resigned. But apparently "accidentally" they forgot to mention that all employees of their administrations left their jobs together. The situation is the same in district and city administrations. Yes, not all quit their jobs or simply stopped going to work - but the overwhelming majority. The regional police departments are empty (Razumovsky mentioned this in an interview on 23.02.), As well as the prosecutor's office (I think many saw that video where "Bilyi" took evil on the prosecutor's investigator - so this investigator is almost the only one who still goes to work , so he is in vain with him so). The ranks of municipalities have also thinned out. In general, in more than 13 regions of Ukraine the most natural "Walk-field".
          Although, before making others work and telling them exactly how to do this, Bilom had to take into account that up to 90% of the crimes committed are committed under the shouts of "Right Sector" and "Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the heroes!" I would first learn to control my people, and then I would teach how to ensure the safety and well-being of Ukrainian citizens. As the saying goes "In someone else's eye ..."

            Politics-politics, but municipalities and other institutions are actually needed to provide urban services, etc. Law enforcement too.
            Even in rural settlements, a minimum is necessary, but it exists and is in demand for a normal, civilized life. And here we see that normal cities plunged into anarchy or, more precisely, into absolute anarchy.

            And if we evaluate the prospects of the "February Revolution" from the outside, then this is simply an accelerated reproduction of events. Even surprising.

        ... Here they are, the heroes of our time.

        True, this applies to normal countries, Russia, for example.

        And that change in Ukraine - the farce continues ...

        "The order to shoot at protesters in the center of Kiev on February 18-20 was given by the fourth president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, through his Administration, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Security Service of Ukraine," Unian was informed in the GPU press service, citing the words of the acting Prosecutor General Oleg Makhnitsky.
        As noted in the press service, it has now been established that employees of the Berkut special detachment "worked" for the protesters, who since the creation of this special unit (1992 - Ed.) Had the opportunity and authority to use firearms, including automatic and sniper rifles.

        According to the GPU, the investigation established that targeted fire from an SKS sniper rifle was fired from the building of the hotel "Ukraine".

        As for the presence of snipers in other buildings, in particular the October Palace, the Kazatskaya Hotel, the House of Trade Unions, the data is being verified.

        Also, the Prosecutor General's Office noted that among several Berkut employees they detained the commander of a separate detachment, whose subordinates were performing tasks of using firearms to kill.

        At the same time, the department noted that they are now checking information about the possible involvement and involvement in the shooting on the Maidan of fighters of other Ukrainian special forces of security forces, in particular, Alpha fighters, who are part of the SBU.

        The press service noted that the GPU employees had to restore the whole picture and circumstances related to the shooting of people in the center of Kiev, since all documents and other material and evidence base were destroyed by the previous leadership of the Prosecutor General. The investigation continues.

        Note that earlier, the acting Prosecutor General of Ukraine Oleg Makhnitsky said on the air of Channel 5 that law enforcement officers detained 9 suspects in the shooting of protesters on Independence Square, all of them were representatives of the Kiev Berkut. "

    And the saddest thing is that Russia is also not going to give money to the Bandera junta. And therefore, now the only thing left for the Ukrainians is to rent a point of Tyagnibok and Yatsenyuk to one of Krakow's brothels. Maybe enough for Belarusian potatoes. Hehe

    If this is true, then I am glad, SUCH CITIZENS OF RUSSIA WE VERY, VERY NEEDED, For the fifth time I copy what I said: “I agree, but in Russia it was already from December 1994 to December 2006 (I deliberately include the period from September 1996 to December 1999 years, a terrible period). Why until December 2006 - because then the President signed a decree on tougher punishment for kidnapping (whoever needs it, he will understand). Then they were also called in the media, and rebels, and mujahideen, and other normal people, in words, instead of the word a bandit and a criminal. But now the guys from the Berkut worry me very much, I'm afraid that the power they defended would not betray them. The worst thing is to be spat upon from all sides, because they are gradually made guilty (in the person of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the order to issue military weapons), and the government and the president remain on the sidelines.This was also in Russia, I saw how the Grozny OMON fought in March 1996 in Grozny, how they were not provided with assistance, how inhuman by their efforts, they recaptured the captive commander from the bandits (who by this time the same as these Bandera scots, had managed to cut all the meat from feet to knees ...) and repeated betrayal, though all in August 1996 (in Mozdok in August 1996 was able to evacuate about 20 Grozny riot police, who fought to the end, but at that time the federal authorities did not consider them as their own, and in their small homeland they were called TRAITORS ...). This is how it can be with the guys from the Berkut, an indecisive, cowardly government can sell those who have stood in its defense for months. ”HELP IS NECESSARY !!!!!

    Attention! - while afraid to go to Crimea because of the fact that if they betray again a second time they will not let me return, then what will happen to my family and home? ....
    But to become a fighter in the Russian Federation, to transport your family is another matter.

Well, what’s the use of this Russia, so to speak. In fact, he takes under his wing all non-professionals from other countries. If you really look, Golden Eagle could not disperse the Maidan.
