Notes of the Colorado Cockroach. View from Kiev to Donetsk

Greetings to you, dear readers. It is regrettable a little, but the events we are developing. A lot of interesting things happen.

As you remember (I wrote with hope), for a while I had to “flee” from Kiev’s sneakers. Naturally, I ran to Donetsk. The militias, as promised, offered to arrange "on the staff of the bread." Only somehow uncomfortable. They shed blood on the "front end", and I, therefore, "sprinkle" in the warmth and satiety of the article. In short, I asked the troops. I wanted to be like them. If not a hero, then at least not just hanging around there. Yes, even bring mines - and that's the case.

Notes of the Colorado Cockroach. View from Kiev to Donetsk

And then I was asked a question, which even my little brain put down with some kind of Latin or Greek letter. Like, and what are you going to build? For whom "blood bags shed" going? Whose are you at all?

How is it for whom? For the people! For the new ... And then pereklinilo. For a new one? For New Russia? For a new Ukraine, for joining Russia ... Really, for what?

But I would not be me if I had not found a way out. It seems like we will win, but we'll see. That laughter was among the militias. Then, they say, the road is closed to you. There in each unit its "construction". In both!

But I still managed to make war. I went along with those with whom I was more or less already acquainted. Illegally drove. It seems not to war, but ... I do not even know where. Without a certificate, without other documents. The men said when the trouble starts, you will get everything at once. In the meantime, you will grunt from the common pot.

Even under the shelling was. True, no one understood where it came from. One, some kind of "landless" mine. Just banged and ... two lie, writhe. Contusion. And silence ... As if nothing had happened. No luck peasants. Or lucky how to look. Here is a war. The truce is called.

Moreover, as it turned out, exactly the same on the “other side”. In the same way, something flies from somewhere, and ... the Ukrainian night is quiet.

In short, such a war is not a bit of me. It seems that the soldiers on both sides at work. Normal such work. With risk, of course. And what, miners without risk went to a face? And the stupidity of this war in the trenches is felt especially strongly. Yes, and fraternity trench. Previously, I somehow did not think about it. And now I understand. It is. It is like a print on the forehead. Front-line officers feel themselves like mosquitoes of mosquitoes. For many miles.

A week later, I was again in Donetsk. And already in the "headquarters". And ... nothing has changed. Similar. In one room they “build” one, in the other - another. How can I beat an enemy with an open palm? Beat a fist. And here it is palm. Someone in the forest, some for firewood.

It was especially strange to look at the confrontation of Purgin and Pushilin. If you asked me before this trip, who of them who, honestly, would have found it difficult to answer. Purgin is sort of like a "parliament" to the local ruled, and Pushilin was shaking about negotiations. Then to Minsk, then to Moscow. Further, sorry, but purely my opinion. Purgin - one of the authors of the idea of ​​New Russia. Fought for this idea since 2004 of the year. With all the presidents. And who is Pushilin? The commissioner of the famous "MMM" at this time. Fought for his own pocket.

If we accept such an admission, then Purgin can be called a representative of the “war party”. New Russia at any cost. Honestly, I respect such people. Pushilin is like a diplomat. "Peace Party", which is not at all against returning "everything in the ass." Throw all my friends from the "front" and live in a changed Ukraine. Betray, if you want a direct conversation, the graves of the victims for the sake of peace. And what kind of peace will bring ukrovoysk, you can see in the "liberated" towns and cities.

What happened yesterday, many waited. It was waiting. And they knew what would happen before the election. Our Ukrainian mentality has evolved over the centuries. Like a gypsy. Why didn't the Donetsk residents go to war? Yes, because they knew they can drain. No matter how the pans quarrel, they will make peace. But slaves forelocks can not be restored.

I was not in Donetsk yesterday. Because what I write is a glance from Kiev. But for starters, I will give a record of one of the 05.09.15 militia. Message from the militia Alexander Zhuchkovsky.

"After talking with some Donetsk deputies and participants of yesterday’s storiesI will make a few clarifications on the situation in the DPR. What happened yesterday has evolved over a long time, in the end, the conflict between Purgin and Pushilin was due precisely to a divergence of views on the development of the situation in the republic. The “last straw” and in fact the cause of yesterday’s coup was a question specifically on the point of the Minsk agreements on the transfer of the border under the control of Ukrainians. This question about the border, like the rest of the "Minsk points", is pushing Pushilin first of all. Purgin was against it, although he did not publicly articulate his position. The well-known statement of Lugansk colleague Pushilin Daney concerning the border did not accidentally coincide with the events in Donetsk.

Yesterday’s meeting of the People’s Council was ugly, there was no talk of any legitimacy of the decisions taken. For the resignation of Purgin and the appointment of Pushilin, they voted, if I am not mistaken, seven times. Great pressure was put on deputies in the corridors of parliament. Not to mention the fact that many of the deputies, from among the supporters of Purgin, were absent due to detention or non-admission to the building. The attitude towards the participants of today's rally in Donetsk was ugly (I, of course, didn’t go at it so as not to go down to the basement). None of the parliament and the DPR administration deigned to explain themselves to the crowd. Protesters, including women, were roughly pushed aside by armed thugs. Several militiamen, Purgin’s friends, were detained at the rally and under threat of a “cellar” were forced to sign papers with the obligation “not to participate in politics”.

That's it. And what they say with us? We have joy and sadness. The joy of what happened coup. And the sadness of not having the strength to finish off the separatists.

What conclusions are heard in the Rada? What do they say on the sidelines? Of course, from what I know. Maybe something to miss.

1. Numerous provocations and misinformation stuffing did their job. Elimination of the most authoritative field commanders, the struggle within the power structures of the LDNR - this is what was needed. Currently, none of the militia command has such authority as Brainstorming, Bezler, Bednov.

2. You can use this situation in favor of Kiev. But for this it is necessary to sharply intensify the fighting. What is currently impossible to do. Therefore it is worth paying special attention to the discrediting of Zakharchenko. Through his connections with Ukrainian enterprises and other "monetary" matters.

3. Russia is not going to invade the territory of Ukraine. So, the probability of victory increases dramatically. Due to the internal instability of the DPR and the LPR, they lose the ability to fully defend their territories.

4. The elimination of Purgin, and with him his team, will intensify the "disassembly" between the leaders of the republics. It should be expected, and better - to encourage such disassembly. Spiders will eat themselves.

5. By some signs, it seems that in the Donbas people are beginning to build republics of the type of Abkhazia or South Ossetia. So, partially abandon independence. In favor of Moscow, of course.

That's how it happens. I thought that returning would isolate me from Donetsk problems. But problems are catching up. So, one of my teachers was right. You can not get away from the problem. The problem must be solved. Otherwise, the problem will solve you.

I apologize to my old readers for the lack of ordinary humor. Just events do not have to him. But there will be humor. If the editor misses, naturally. I promise you that.

      1. A huge Russophobic state between the Russian Federation and Europe, our "elites" do not need it.
      2. A huge Russophobic state with broken economic ties with the Russian Federation is not viable
      3. In a war, people have very clearly manifested their qualities such as Honor and such as meanness and hatred
      There will be no previous country, everything has gone too far and the current government has too much burden of problems Ruins, now it is still early autumn, there will be all sorts of bursts and reflections of activity and imitation of vigorous activity ... And then it will be seen that there are a lot of new factors appears ..... Something else will happen, soon the European "elites" will have to distract their citizens from the problems of pressing problems with man-made ones.

    Probably, this has already put on a sore point, but once again I repeat: what the Bolsheviks were strong for, no matter how anyone treated them, was the ability to mobilize at the right moment and conclude an agreement even with the devil. It was necessary to take, and then retain power - entered into a coalition with the Social Revolutionaries, anarchists, and other left-wing Social Democrats. And the showdown began later, when at least there was already power, the state machine started working. It was then that they began to purge the ranks of the anarchists, the elimination of the Socialist Revolutionary revolt, the struggle against deviations in the RCP / CPSU (b) itself.
    In Novorossia, everything is awry, there is no single goal, no single means to achieve it.
    It seems to be a comedy, but there are more than two meanings in these words:

    History teaches us that no one wants to learn!
    More specifically, what else was expected? Planet defeating capitalism damn it! Around only calculation _ And what WE have with it! There was nothing else to expect and there was, of course, this is all at the interstate level! Cement was an external threat, it was worth dropping a degree and it went off, hmm, and in different directions. The only hope is that common sense will win, or else these, like, victorious wiseacres, will hang NG on poles. And do not be touched by the persecution of the right-wingers, any revolution always devours its children, those who are weak.
    A bit messy of course, but why forget the USSR NO! There is already a completely different state. OUR, but different! In general, the author, _

    What can be added from the provinces, a little further than Kiev. It has become fashionable to stage the so-called "Walls of Truth", where everyone can write whatever they think. In general, what people have written clearly does not coincide with official statements. I would say more ... After a series of similar experiments, "Walls of Truth" was removed. And these are still flowers. The future of the country is not assessed by anyone as "bright", except in the Rada and in a madhouse. Breaking through information about "Poroshenko's decentralization with consolidation" and the new tax code, when Ukrainians will pay for everything, including air, does not make anyone happy. But today in the rest of Ukraine (without Donbass) there is no alternative other than PS or UKROP. This is where another, alternative political project is needed, which cannot grow on Ukrainian territory. Either the next Party of Regions will turn out or they will do the same with Buzina. In general, the SBU very quickly "calculates" those who came from the East.

      These bourgeois will never be able to agree. A good "builder" is needed. Socialism is desirable.

    The decomposition process is underway. It was launched a long time ago, and the hand of a professional is visible. LDNR is unable to control either the internal order or the situation at the front. Yes, and in fact there is no single command ... The only good news is that the Ukrainian Air Force is not able to fight now, and winter is just around the corner. It is hoped that someone will soon get tired of this whole theater of the absurd and drop the curtain ...

    Of course, I have no right to argue with the author, since I am not in the center of events and I may not know something. But something tells me that the author is replaying. And he interviews not exactly a militia, but as I understand a volunteer, a person with a certain approach to the situation and until all his predictions come true. And about the "palm". Duck, as far as I know, the entire restructuring system is going precisely in order to form a "fist", because initially all systems did not have a rigid core and all worked by themselves. Which often led to trouble. It should be understood that all these "media" reshuffles cannot be compared with those local reshuffles ... As far as I know, an understandable and reliable and efficient structure, both civilian and military, is being built on the "ground".
