Crimea and the double standards of the West ("Telesur TV", Venezuela)

38



Western media in the service of big business tried to do everything possible and impossible to hide the true reasons for the coup d'état that took place in Ukraine in February 2014 with the blessing of the United States and the European Union.

Only thanks to the local and regional media of the Eurasian region, we are able to find out the truth about the causes of coups, political, economic and social crises in countries that have been the victims of Western intervention in internal affairs.

The United States and its allies collude against Russia

The United States and its allies continue to follow the well-known principle of "fishing in troubled waters."

An example of this is the "Arab Spring", when Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Syria were embroiled in political, economic and social chaos.

The West does not spare funds for the supply of weapons to terrorists, whom it calls "rebels", as, for example, in Syria. The United States, helping international terrorists, seeks to weaken Russia both economically and geopolitically.

Take, for example, the stubborn desire of the United States to continue to deploy a controversial antimissile shield in Europe, ostensibly to repel a hypothetical attack from Iran. And this is being done, despite the recent achievement of a historic agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, when the 5 + 1 Group (Russia, USA, France, UK, China plus Germany) after many years of tense negotiations managed to close this issue.

It is noteworthy that this agreement, concluded last July in Vienna, is called the “Joint Comprehensive Action Plan” and provides for the complete abolition of the economic and financial sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council, the United States and the EU against Tehran.

The consequences of the Arab spring, the deployment of missile defense in Europe, the conflicts between North Korea and South Korea, China and Japan were used as a smoke screen for the US and the EU to achieve their goals in Ukraine.

The decision of President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych to postpone the signing of an association and free trade agreement with the EU has become a kind of detonator for the political and economic crisis in Ukraine.

Starting from 21 in November 2013, the Independence Square (Independence Square), located in the center of Kiev, becomes a battleground between the police and protesters, unhappy with the decision of Yanukovych.

As expected, American and European politicians, as well as media controlled by them, accused the Ukrainian authorities of violating human rights and solidarized with the protesters, demanding the resignation of President Yanukovych and the continuation of Ukraine’s integration with the EU.

The leaders of the German and Canadian foreign ministries, Guido Westerwelle and John Baird, as well as an infinite number of politicians from Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Georgia, and the United States, came to Kiev to support the protesters. Former head of European diplomacy, Catherine Ashton, arrived on Maidan to greet demonstrators and meet with opposition leaders.

It’s hard to imagine what would happen to Russian politicians if they tried to take part in a demonstration of "outraged" in Spain or the USA, or transferred 15 million dollars to support opposition parties, as the Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs and Eurasia Victoria Nuland.

This abusive and inadequate behavior of senior officials largely explains the fact that two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States and its NATO allies gave Ukraine five billion dollars in aid and grants.

Sergei Glazyev, an adviser to the Russian president on economic issues, has repeatedly warned that this money will be used to form an intellectual community of experts who oppose Russia and incite Russophobia in Ukrainian society.

Glazyev explained that scholarships from 5 to 10 thousand dollars are distributed through thousands of NGOs among students and specialists in exchange for their commitment to publish anti-Russian materials in social networks, as well as in the press.

He added that all this "huge information and propaganda machine has already overthrown more than one government in the world, and also created an explosive situation in Ukraine."

Thus, the United States and the EU killed two birds with one stone: they separated Ukraine from Russia, and also deprived Russian President Vladimir Putin of the opportunity to carry out a project to create a Eurasian union with Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine to form a stability pole in this region.

Ukraine will eventually be absorbed by NATO, so that the North Atlantic alliance will be on the border with Russia to prevent the revival of Russia as a superpower.

For the West, all means are good in the struggle for the “democratic future of Europe”, which, according to US Secretary of State John Kerry, will now depend on the development of events in Ukraine.

To achieve this goal, all means are good, including the use of violence, disrespect for the law, the involvement of parties with neo-Nazi ideology. The main thing is that they meet their goals. Is this not a clear example of the manifestation of double standards in the foreign policy of the United States and its allies?

US and EU offer Ukraine to become a "backyard"

Having delayed the signing of an association agreement with the European Union, Ukraine was given time to think about the future that awaited it. According to former European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, the EU has offered Ukraine to sign an agreement to help build bridges with its western neighbors.

The EU’s so-called proposal to “build bridges with its western neighbors” means that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will determine the conditions for granting loans, as well as issues related to rising gas prices, devaluation of the national currency, lowering or freezing wages, and the closure of state-owned enterprises.

The negative effect of the association agreement with the European Union will primarily affect the Ukrainian agricultural sector. Ukraine does not have enough modern technologies to bring it to the European level. Especially in the current severe economic crisis, which Ukraine is experiencing now.

Thus, the difficult economic situation in this Slavic country will not allow it to compete on equal terms with agricultural products imported from Europe, since due to state subsidies, European products are cheaper and more qualitative.

Ukraine must save its economy, since the proposal of the West will lead to the exact opposite result. The Ukrainian authorities do not understand that if they continue to bow to the West, in the long run, the country may find itself in a situation similar to the one in which Latin America or Greece found themselves, which were bought up with giblets by the West.

Russia opposes Nazism promoted by the USA and the EU in Ukraine

The enormous propaganda machine of the United States and the EU failed to achieve their goals - to discredit Russia due to the political crisis in Ukraine. The facts speak for themselves.

Let's remember them.

With the blessing of the United States and NATO member countries in August 2008, during the Beijing Olympic Games, Georgia launched a war against South Ossetia. Georgian aggression forced Russia to get involved in the conflict and force the countries of the South Caucasus to peace. Russia, along with several other countries, recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

During the military aggression, the Georgian army committed crimes against humanity against the population of South Ossetia, mostly Russian, but the United States and its allies did not notice. It seems that the issue of human rights in this part of the world does not bother them at all.

It should be noted that South Ossetia and Abkhazia are republics bordering Russia.

It is noteworthy that when mass protests of students who were severely suppressed by the Turkish authorities were held in Istanbul on the central square of Taksim, the United States and the EU barely defended their rights and freedoms.

Surprisingly, despite the fact that as a result of the dispersal of the demonstrators, there were wounded and killed, neither the German and Canadian foreign ministers, nor the head of European diplomacy, Catherine Ashton, nor any European politician came to Turkey to support defenseless demonstrators.

It appears that the violation of human rights in Turkey - in particular, those who led peaceful protests - is not disturbed by the West. We already observed something similar when mass protests were held in Great Britain, Greece, the movement “Occupy Wall Street” in the USA.

But as the West was concerned about the violation of the rights of bandits, members of Nazi political parties who committed acts of violence on the Maidan in the center of the Ukrainian capital, after Viktor Yanukovych decided to postpone the signing of an association agreement with the EU.

The coming to power in Ukraine of right and extreme right forces forced a number of regions of south-eastern Ukraine, including the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, to reject the new self-proclaimed authorities.

Crimean residents in March 2014 decided to return to Russia on the basis of the referendum held in order to avoid the genocide of the Crimean people, to preserve their culture and language, to be part of the Eurasian power, strictly complying with international law.

Crimea

Why are so-called human rights defenders, fighters for democracy and freedom of speech in the United States and the European Union not opposed to the Ukrainian occupation authorities in Crimea?

Why did the Western media do everything possible to hide the truth about how the Crimea was part of Ukraine?

Need to know and respect history, to bring the truth to the world community, to explain that the peninsula was not always part of Ukraine. It is well known that the Russian Empire liberated Crimea from the Turkish yoke in 1774 year. In 1783, the peninsula became part of the empire, and in 1921, it became part of Soviet Russia. The overwhelming majority of the population of Crimea is Russian.

In order to justify the atrocities of the United States and their allies in the world and not lose millions of dollars, the Western press hid information that February 19 1954, Crimea, by the decision of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Crimea seceded from Soviet Russia and was transferred to Soviet Ukraine, or rather donated .

The transfer of the Crimea took place as a purely internal affair of the former Soviet Union, without any referendums and polls. Moreover, it should be noted that the transfer of the Crimea to Ukraine has not received international recognition.

In addition, Ukraine, apparently, did not even officially register the demarcation of its borders with Russia after the collapse of the USSR. According to the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, this was not legally formalized, which was done by the majority of the former Soviet republics, voluntarily joining the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

If this is so, then it turns out that the self-proclaimed republics in Lugansk, in the Donbas and in the Crimea are now part of Russia, since the Russian Federation has the status of the heir state of the USSR.

As we see, with regard to Crimea, the United States and the European Union have demonstrated double standards of their foreign policy. However, the West is silent on this score.

          But in principle, nothing prevents us, even with the help of military force, from returning to Ukraine both Ukraine and the entire Baltic States. It is a pity that Russia is still weak in the economic aspect, we do not have a coherent domestic economic policy!

      Vivid examples of the impact on Western minds:

      - The operation of the Russian air forces in Syria - The Russian armed forces are the strongest !!!
      - The flow of refugees in Europe - The war in Syria is bad !!!

      The author knows the Russians very poorly, if they grab onto something, then at least a piece of it, but they will tear it off. And he writes: "Ukraine will ultimately be absorbed by NATO, bringing the North Atlantic alliance to the border with Russia to prevent Russia from re-emerging as a superpower." The story of the crusaders, Tatar-Mongols, Napoleon and Hitler apparently taught no one there.

    Certainly the right words were spoken. Who will listen to him, the author? The maydanutym has become worse economically and energetically (although it’s not as bad as in Donbass), but at least they want to go to the European Union, where it’s not unambiguously good today. It reaches different layers of the population at different speeds. In the modern world, there are not many people who can think outside the box. Templates (rashka-quilted jackets, eurotolerasts-happiness) are hammered into us / them by propaganda firmly. The world processes are led by politicians in the interests of the elites, and the elites benefit from what is beneficial. You can ride, you can groan, you can demand justice, but it will be as it will be beneficial to the ruling elite. In this regard, I want to throw a stone at our education system: Our children (our future!) - will grow up as blunt debris that can be convinced that the grass is not green, the water is not wet, and the sky is not blue and black white -that's the matter. In this, children will be like us, only the degree of debility will be several times higher.

        If you think about it, then it is. EBN came to power in an unconstitutional way. The agreement in Belovezhskaya Pushcha is legally null and void, since before the agreement there was a referendum at which the population of the USSR clearly said that the USSR should be preserved.

      Well, in principle, I believe that only the Republic of Crimea won such a right. The fact is that Novorossia split into two, and this applies not only to Ukrainians, but also to Russians. If in Crimea everyone unanimously voted to return to Russia, then half of Novorossia wanted to join the European Union and if the Ukrainian authorities had pursued a clever policy towards New Russia, this war would not have been there. These are not newspaper articles, but from conversations with refugees from Donbass. They once lived in the Far East, and last year fled from the war to relatives.

    It's okay. Most Westerners have a memory - like an aquarium fish - no longer than a day. Tomorrow there will be a team to "kill the Nazis", and all the media, as one, will turn 180 degrees and begin to denounce the Banderaites with the same passion as they were supported until then. And most will not be surprised at all. In general, it is increasingly noticeable that the 404 territory has completely lost its relevance in the news of the Western media. The final blow will come after the IMF for the sake of saving this territory from inevitable default changes its rules - not to lend to countries with sovereign debt. After that there will be a curtain. But do not sit down with cheaters.

      And not only Baikonur. Look at the map, in Northern Kazakhstan there is practically no Kazakh city, and Astana is Russian Tselinograd. Let the borders remain as they are now, but Kazakhstan for Baikonur (operation) requested an unacceptable price, although the contribution to the construction of the cosmodrome from Kazakhstan was minimal, almost none. Their tone sharply changed when, in response, the construction of the East began. Kazakhs can’t cope with Baikonur without Russia, they are used to riding more on mares, and lacking in more intelligence.

        In vain you are so.

        Firstly, this topic has already been discussed here many times and everyone understood that the rental price is rather symbolic - compared to billions of budgets of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation, it is tiny

        Secondly, Kazakhstan is not just Russia's closest ally, but also a republic. which embarked on the path of integration with Russia and Belarus, and it was a very difficult choice, because although the majority are for integration, there are people who are cautious about the mood in today's Russia - but such insulting comments add fuel to the fire

        After the collapse of the USSR - at the time of Yeltsin's "intoxication" with Europe, when Russia spat on the former republics and decided that it was expected in Europe for the "Viennese ball" - Kazakhstan repeatedly "knocked on closed doors" and tried to return Russia "home" - on the way integration

        Fortunately, Russia's "madness" ended with the departure of Yeltsin and the liberals, and the new team led by VVP listened to our leaders

        Russia can’t get away from Kazakhstan and the Kazakhs, even if you “call your name” - and so we, Kazakhs, cannot get away from Russia. And such small Natsiks like you Saratoga cannot prevent this in any way, you are a minority - you are marginalized - and there in the Russian Federation and in our KZ there are Kazakhs, your "colleagues"
        We are united by thousands of years of common history from the time of the Kipchak clans and ancient Rus, then the Golden Horde - from "whose greatcoat both Russians and Kazakhs grew, then Tsarist Russia and the USSR, and the Great Patriotic War, in which Kazakhs fought shoulder to shoulder with Russians, as well like their great-great-grandfathers thousands of years ago

    Before Tselinograd was called Tselinograd, it was called Akmolinsk. That is, the transformed Kazakh name Akmola. This is the name of the tract near Astana, translated as "White grave". There some khan respected by the Kazakhs was buried, even before historical materialism.
    Akmola was the intersection of caravan routes. And it was controlled by the Kipchaks. In general, the Kazakhs have lived there since time immemorial.
    But the city of Akmolisk was founded by Russian Cossacks as an outpost. Somewhere in the early 19th century.
    Kazakhs don’t need Baikonur; for now, they have horses. One horse costs 450-500 thousand rubles. And their herds roam the steppe. What the hell Baikonur?
