The analytical program "However," with Mikhail Leontyev 06 May 2014
Nowhere and never have elections been a means of ending the civil war. Civil war is always the result of a colossal split in society. And only negotiations, agreements, compromises can prevent it. And not an election.
“The main goal for France is to ensure the holding of presidential elections in Ukraine on 25 in May,” said French President Francois Hollande. “If they do not happen, chaos and danger of civil war will arise.”
The brutality organized by the Kiev authorities in Odessa does not bring the civil war closer. A massive punitive operation in the Donbas does not bring a civil war. It does not matter what the president of the country says, whose 86% considers him, to say the least, an eccentric - it is important that this is the official position of the United States and the European Union. Given that the Kiev regime's civil war, which had arisen and existed solely by their will, had already begun a civil war.
The day before, in the area of Slavyansk, blocked by a 15-strong military force, during a full-scale battle using heavy armored vehicles and aviationBoth sides suffered heavy casualties killed and wounded. There are numerous casualties among the civilian population. During the battle, two helicopters were shot down by self-defense forces. No objectives of the operation have been achieved. Punitive troops are concentrated for a new attack in the area of the village of Semenovka near Kramatorsk.
S. Poltorak: "We are dealing with a well-armed and organized adversary, who are armed with grenade launchers, machine guns, mortars. People are well-trained, far from Slavic nationality, including."
Avakov: "Tell me directly: there are Chechens."
Finally! More direct - the Arabs! And Slavyansk is inhabited by Afghans. I saw it with my own eyes ... The fact is that these Nazi geeks are continuously lying, hiding the number of victims of their Odessa atrocities. They lie about their combat losses, diminishing them by an order of magnitude. They throw their wounded, shoot at their backs. The fact is that they are professional provocateurs. And no matter what, except for provocations, they are not suitable.
B. Obama: "Russian leaders should know that if they continue to destabilize Ukraine and interfere with the holding of presidential elections this month, we will quickly move on to further steps."
F. Hollande: "The most important goal is to ensure that in Ukraine a president is chosen who will be perceived by the entire population as legitimate."
Russian leaders really have nothing to worry about. May 25 elections will take place, even if they come to some militants Maidan, as it was during the February coup. And the president elected on them will be in the eyes of all kinds of Holland and Obama even more legitimate than the current Turchynov. And the civil war in Ukraine, to their great amazement, will continue incrementally. You can say, war is war, but elections are on schedule.
