The question whether referendums in the Donbass are legitimate or illegitimate do not make sense. Because the whole situation throughout Ukraine is absolutely and completely devoid of any legitimacy.
However, hello! The question whether referendums in the Donbass are legitimate or illegitimate do not make sense. Because the whole situation throughout Ukraine is absolutely and completely devoid of any legitimacy.
No matter how you call the February "incident" - a coup, a revolution, the bottom line is that after the February 22 coup, Ukraine is being rediscovered. This Ukraine has nothing to do with the former Ukrainian SSR. No continuity. Neither in culture, nor in identity, nor in language even. This is another country. And in relation to it, all citizens who inhabited the former Ukrainian SSR are forced to self-determine. Because they did not agree on anything with this Ukraine. And self-determination it occurs outside of any legal field. And in Kiev, and in Lviv, and in the Donbass.
By the way, the refusal of the current Kiev authorities to pay for gas is such a spontaneous unconscious recognition of the absence of this very succession. And the Russian position - remember? - back to the agreements from February 21, this is an attempt to restore at least some legitimacy. The last attempt to save Ukraine.
The acting head of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine, Sergey Pashinsky, announced that the antiterrorist operation had moved from the active stage to the final one. "The antiterrorist operation in the area of Krasny Liman, Slavyansk, Kramatorsk is in the final stage." He further reported that many separatists had been destroyed, and the Ukrainian security forces had no casualties.
Well, surely, supermen !? That's still not a revolution. Whatever they say, revolutions give birth to leaders. And this is - God forgive me, these degenerates have not taken control of a single building for the whole time of their military operation, not that of a town. The 30-thousandth group is rummaging around the east of Ukraine, and the only pride of the Pravosek is a massacre in Odessa.
This is a parade of nonentities. Some shabby petty urs: Turchinov, Pashinsky, Avakov. The only decent man - General Nalyvaychenko. And that American spy.
Poroshenko’s election by the Ukrainian president, we repeat, will be recognized by progressive humanity, even if Poroshenko comes to them. However, under no circumstances will they be recognized by Yulia Tymoshenko. And the third series of Marlezonsky ballet - Maidan-3 will begin. A referendum in the Donbass, recognize - do not recognize, this is a political reality, not canceled by any external will. Stuffing cannot be turned back. Like Ukraine.
