Military Review

Why it becomes difficult to think about the future of Donbass

Holidays are over. There is only one, purely Russian, that cannot be translated into other languages. Old New Year ... People celebrated. But not all. Some waited for the decision of their fate.

Last year we published an article that did not want to write about the Donbass. Not because everything that is going on there is little reminiscent of the construction of the people's republics. Not even because the local media show more the idleness of this whole war than the real state of affairs. Even on “VO” materials from Donetsk often look like a permanent celebration of life.

I didn’t want to write because many of the actions of the leaders of the republics resemble the actions of bandits. And sometimes, may the readers forgive us, traitors of all that, for which so many lives are laid.

Already accustomed to picks Donbass and Kiev about violations of the regime of silence. Daily "concerns" and "deep regrets." Only here are the results for some reason in one direction. On sly, Ukrainian punishers occupy one locality after another. And the politicians of the whole world "express" everything.

But not only politicians are concerned.

The video that everyone saw is quite indicative in this regard. To say that this is the machinations of Ukrainian propaganda, it is impossible. People are sitting now. They sit simply for allowing themselves to speak out against the authorities. People's power allegedly.

It so happened that many people associated with the Donbas at different times, get in touch with us. We met with some directly. Some have already been buried. For some reason, the damned RDG of the Ukrainian Armed Forces destroyed exactly those who were the most independent and charismatic.

And here is another murder. A very respected person - Lieutenant Colonel Kononov.

After all the assassinations, there must have been a statement by the authorities that the enemy would be found and punished. At the funeral, representatives of the authorities, chattering with medals and orders, vowed revenge. Some even looked like a mean male tear.

But name us at least one crime that would be solved. No one! No questions arise? And we have. Why? Who benefits from writing off everything on the APU? Maybe the answer is in the video?

Now, when war weariness has accumulated at all, one can increasingly hear a simple question - why? Why were there such sacrifices if the construction of the people's republics of Donbass is no different from the construction of the Kiev junta? And there, and there are more declarations than real action.

At the very beginning of the war, we firmly believed that all the fuss began due to the infringement of the rights of Russian-speaking Ukrainians. We diligently hammered into the head that the main problem is in sight. Russian language and Russian part of the Ukrainians. Therefore, many often asked why half of the fighters speak Russian in the punitive battalions? Why do Russians go against Russians? Where did the Svidomo Donbass Battalion Commander Semen Semenchenko come from? And where did the native of Sevastopol Konstantin Grishin go?

In fact, the problem was and remains. And it is not in the Russian or Ukrainian. It is in the money. In dollars, rubles, hryvnia. The executors of people's fate from the windows of their own limousines decide what and who to give. Or that and from whom take away accordingly.

People wanted to live as it works. The more it works, the better it lives. But this was not and is not included in the plans of those limousines. People wanted to live in their own house as they had lived before. The people wanted power for the people. People's power ...

The best people of Donbass fell for it. For this, volunteers from Russia and other countries went to war. For this, the old men agree to endure shelling and die on the streets from shells and mines.

But what has been achieved today? What is really done to make the republics of the people? Chose a new "head"? Renamed the police to the police and gave her a proud name - the people? Doded up and created a defense system? What for?

Why not carried out the nationalization of Ukrainian enterprises? Maybe because Ukraine supports the residents of Donbass financially? Maybe the pension pays? Or wages to workers? What has Ukraine done to treat Ukrainian property so scrupulously?

Simply need to be. Simpler. And then everything falls into place. Who is the girl "dancing"? That's right, the one who "dines" her. To paraphrase this banality, it is easier to say. The power of LDNR does not want to build anything. And the “people's republic” performed by this government is nothing but a simple redistribution of property. It was necessary to take away from someone in order for someone else to appear.

And then there are answers to many questions. Those that we mentioned at the beginning of the article. Why are the most combat-ready units and divisions of the republics beheaded? Why "Ukrainian DRG" clearly know the secret routes of movement of specific commanders. Why do these commanders most often disagree with Donetsk and Lugansk? Why can not solve a single crime.

And at the same time it becomes clear a large number of arrested volunteers. It becomes clear why people who are close to specific distribution schemes are arrested. It becomes clear why the actual coup took place last September. Why do commanders continue to die "suddenly at the hands of the DRG of the Armed Forces of Ukraine", why some divisions have problems.

      And I personally mean that those who do not want a political solution to the issue are simply removed. Some left, the principal remained, and now they are being cleared.

      I will not be surprised that a number of such actions were made by our special services or with their participation. At the top (Norman format) they decided to be friends, and they are actively helping.

      We don’t know much, and it’s not worth looking at public dances with a tambourine. Gunpowder can spit in words at least in our direction, but when he receives an order from the USA, how nice he will jump and do what is needed. One thing is clear that Europe already wants to close the topic of Donbass, to us too. The United States is still breaking, but Black is no longer in business; he is a demobil. I think there will be no war, there will be another year of different delirium, and then it will come to naught. At the same time, pravoseki and other riffraff will subside, and the mighty chocolate king will be able to complete his homework.

    Why be surprised? Don't those who are in power in the Donbass want to enrich themselves and strengthen their power? Everything is covered by a beautiful screen of the struggle for independence and the author correctly says that it is very easy to write everything off to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
    Politicians have never been pure people. In politics, they are all with one goal - to get rich and manage people.

      In this regard, another uncomfortable question stinks - what actually happens to the so-called. humanitarian aid that the Russian Federation continues to drive to the Donbass? Who controls that it really gets to those in need, and not to all kinds of businessmen?
      In fact, in some regions we have such a situation that it is just right to send convoys with humanitarian aid there ....
      There was as yet no clarity on this issue, and the media on this subject got a lot of water - it seems that the topic is really uncomfortable ...

      Yes, it really began to reach the respected members of the forum "what's what"? Yes, no one needed New Russia, no one in the Kremlin! Donets and Lugansk were waiting for the fate of Kharkov, and then some Strelkov appeared and confused all the "cards" with his "lack of understanding of the political situation." While He was there in Slavyansk held the defense and waited for "polite people", it was impossible to kick him "without pale", but He left Slavyansk and "water rushed through the pipes." Kurginyan acted as the instigator, and then articles with a "smell" were sent and now Strelkov is already smeared with guano by all and sundry. What about others? Yes, very simple - "fell at the hands of the punitive forces of the DRG APU." And "a suitcase without a handle" - Novorossiya, in a quiet way, began to prepare in the trash. Information processing has already started: and this article (and the authors are the same)))).

It is simply scary to develop this topic further. Because many questions will arise, and the main -About civilian casualties. People DONATE. For what? Think for yourself.

    I didn’t give a shit about the political leadership and the showdown, people set up specifically, they only say to the camera now that we are living in a new way and are building the future, and at home they regret that the adventurers dragged them into politics and war. Kapets just how long these regions will last in their current form It’s not known that they will not be accepted into Russia, but it’s just dangerous to go back to Ukraine, it’s a pity for people. I personally think that it was Girkin who muddied everything there if he hadn’t arrived there, there would have been no capture of state structures, there would have been no entry of ukrovsk, there would be war, there would be no sanctions, etc., etc.

      And in Odessa, too, Girkin muddied? Ale comrade, first we need to recall the decree (law) on the entry of Russian troops into the territory of Ukraine, which was signed live by the Federation Council and the President. The top officials hoped that after the return of Crimea, Ukraine and the West would not have such a harsh reaction to our actions, but this happened and the president backed out. Only now the car was already running, the South-East was already at the mercy of the Nazis and their battalions. Ask the military and they will tell you that the actions of our volunteers in the spring, to capture Slavyansk and other cities, is a well-planned operation to seize communications in the east of Ukraine (Slavyansk itself is the largest railway junction in the Ego-East, and this is fast delivery of troops and weapons). In Iraq, Syria, there is oil and gas, that's why they help there, and in Novorossia only Russian people, without any of these "benefits". There is coal, so big business and other impurities poured into it, which bring back the nineties. You have to go to the end, if you got down to business, and not merge halfway, when people began to burn alive and phosphorus fell on settlements. When hundreds of women and children were killed, whom the president publicly promised to protect. The current Ministry of Defense of the DPR, instead of its direct responsibilities to protect the population of the Republic, is only engaged in counting the shelling, destroyed and seized by the Ukrovoyaks. Girkin at least fought and defended the population, even without help. By the way, in eastern Ukraine, more than forty activists trained in our country have disappeared in dungeons (this is not my information, it was announced by the leaders of Novorossiya), will you throw mud at them too? If they failed there, there is no need to throw mud at others, they did their job until their own people began to clean them up. If there were oil and gas, then not only our VKS would have been operating there long ago.

When I read people's comments here, I get the impression that there are much more sensible and objectively assessing people here than in the Russian government.

    Roman, if my memory serves me right, but in June, somewhere closer to the end of the month, after my return from Donbass, I wrote that I was advised not to ask "unnecessary" questions there, and by the way on the forum I received a lot of minuses and frank persecution from "patriots" who wrote: ... and there you managed to visit, and even arrived in Donetsk! why didn't we see you?
    I answer: that's why they didn't see that I didn't want to meet with you, but talked with ordinary people and understood: we are not needed there, and under the label of "finding the Russian spring" there is a stupid redistribution. and now, at last, gentlemen have come to understand what has long been understood by ordinary residents of Donbass! so I believe that there was no cunning plan of the "darkest" even in the plans, forgiveness of tautology, and all this tinsel about "Russian spring and world" is nothing more than noodles on our drooping ears.

    The current situation in the Donbass is just an example of what happens when they first fight, and then think what they wanted to achieve this fight.
