this is my third item on VTB bank in 24 hours, and it fits in with the other two

VTB Bank (where the share of the authorities is 60.9%) intend by the end of the year to recapitalize their subsidiaries in Ukraine. 600-800 million spike in overall Russian business economically supports Ukraine against the Russians, against Russia, and against themselves. And how much of this spike, true Russian? And what makes this Zion, to worry about some Russian population? Not to mention the fact that all these макдаков one homeland, and this is not Russia.

Pavel Gubarev: “unfortunately, in LDNR killed and destroyed all living things”
Elena Gorbacheva, Russkaya Planeta, Jun 29 2015

Pavel Gubarev, last spring became the first people’s Governor of Donetsk region, for the year managed to visit the dungeons of Kiev SBU, to come under attack on the road, to become involved in the recent scandal with the shooting in the center of Donetsk. Now one of the leaders of the “Russian spring 2014″ does not occupy any positions in DNR, focusing entirely on their own movement called “Novorossiya”. About why the idea of the Russian world in the Donbass is at risk of falling, as in Ukraine create an analogue of the IG and what really threatens Russia, Gubarev said in an exclusive interview to “Russkaya Planeta”.

Q: You criticize what is happening now in the republics. So, you and Ukraine were in opposition, and now, when the DNR?

A: I would not say that in opposition. Rather, not in power. The opposition is, perhaps, the people in power who disagree with the course. Unfortunately, in LDNR killed and destroyed all life, and now in the republics is created once the structure of the simulacrum: obedient, but not viable. Elites, who first threw the Donbass region, they’re back. In the arena, as they say, all the same: they are now involved in the creation of political forces.

Q: So, when the head of the DND Alexander Zakharchenko in conversation with residents of the settlement of October at the rally spoke of the “pests” in power, are out to sabotage these or other initiatives, he did not dissemble?

A: Well, who’s these people? For fear of competition Zakharchenko everywhere “planted vegetables.” And then wonders why those sabotage, steal. Yes because they are vegetables, Sasha! Now there is a war, we need ideological people. So to push away all because of fear of political competition is a fundamental error.

Q: In recent years you felt some kind of support, ideological or any otherwise, from Russia?

A: I’ve felt support, not through formal structures, but through the organizations in Russia considered “hand-shakers” (нерукопожатными). For example, one time I came under the influence of RNE Barkashov. Another was a Eurasian Union of Youth. Limonov was active. Yes, perhaps, and all. Despite the fact that similar organizations were small, they were “alive” because they carried a certain idea. And always, by the way, sitting without a penny. The means are quite different organizations, we called them “professional Russians.”

Q: But were first in the South-East of Ukraine forces that somehow reflected the interests of Russian people in Ukraine?

A: Such forces existed. For example, “Russian block,” “Donetsk Republic” of Andrey Purgin, “Russian Donbass,” the progressive socialist party of Natalia Vitrenko, but they had absolutely no resources, their activity was weak in contrast to the Crimea, by the way. Such movements there were many, and they were successful. In the Southeast, the large resources invested somehow in the “Party of Regions.” It’s a bourgeois party of the clientilistic type, composed of representatives of regional and local elites, business structure, they each somehow agreed and through these agreements entered into power. Them no one was going to fill a clear ideological content. Once I was talking to a friend who boasted that he created the “Party of Regions.” I asked: “What is there to brag about? You created the shit that fell apart in less than a day!” And it was the ruling party! None of the representatives was not a carrier of any ideas, so they ran away so quickly. It was a simulacrum with a completely empty slogans.

Now Russia is again on the same rake, trying to influence Ukraine through elite, through the oligarchs (stepping on the same rake is a favourite Russian metaphor – RB). But today you have agreed with the oligarch while he is strong, and tomorrow the power of his bankrupted. No agreements with anyone do not guarantee success in foreign policy, you need to create your own centers of influence, with a clear hierarchy and network structure, meaningful, and consisting of ideological people for whom the Russian civilization is the highest value, are confident that Russia can be a deterrent in the world. Believing that our Orthodox civilization possesses the highest justice in the world, that we stand for a multipolar world, a new world order built on the principles of justice. And we even for yourself, these principles are not able to formulate. Moreover, political processes now in our republics, largely taking place in the same patterns which created the “Party of Regions”.

The problem is that nobody here really knows and understands how to do something else. Because there are people who can and know how, why not call? For example, I can tell. After all the struggle will be long, and much-needed force which is necessary to form the ideological people for whom Russian world, not just words. See how Pindosis are working: they are principled people, give them money and means — only to continue to do what we believe in. Because it is important for Pindostan. And so was all the last 23 years. And all of our allegedly Russian funds just saw money. Normal, living Russian person or group of people there can do nothing, because there the rotten racism. Pindosis now do not cease to exist in the region, so if to preserve the Republic in the form in which they are now, nothing good is not over. NGOs with Pindosi support continue to work quietly, and everyone knows that, except for the Ministry of state security of DND for some reason. In Ukraine, the processes are also in progress: for example, Nalivaychenko doing something like Ukrainian IG, and it will be a very serious power that can break any truce.

Q: Now the Southeast rose up, the anti-Russian forces there not good enough “worked”?

A: Still need to make allowances for the fact that they worked in hostile territory, where initially all speak Russian and are mostly ethnic Russians. But it took another 20 years, and they would have won. Today we missed a lot of territory, and if this conflict will freeze, after 20 years there will be impossible to enter except on tanks. The next generation that will grow up there, will be completely “Heil Bandera!” Even that grew up now, already largely lost. A striking example is Dmitry Yarosh. He’s from Novorossia, from Dneprodzerzhinsk. He is the bearer of a new Ukrainian nation, already grown in the area. And Russia in these areas had a head start.

Q: All these years is a young man living in the South-East of Ukraine, desiring to speak in their native language, to feel part of Russian history and not consonant with the ideas espoused by the official authorities, where could he go?

A: Exactly nowhere. Neither the civil service nor in serious politics with such ideas, it was impossible to go to the fracture that occurred after the Maidan: their opinion at once became the mainstream, rising to national wave of anger. On the Maidan all saw the real Ukrainians, petty, hateful and chauvinistic. It was the highest embodiment of that ideology. And suddenly we were in the trend of Russian ideas. But for Moscow, these ideas are not mainstream. Because until now the representatives of the Russian Federation talk about a unified Ukraine, and it is possible to understand diplomacy. But you cannot understand why it is still not established its own, Russian NGOs? After all, it is the main front of the war now. The West is actively working, both on Ukraine, and on the minds of Russian citizens, who are ready to give up Crimea because their salaries were reduced by 10%.

Look at the Middle East, where (not without the help of the CIA) remnants of the Islamists, AQ and the Taliban, became the basis for a very powerful project with a structured hierarchy and an international network structure based on religious ideology and ideas of social justice. ISIS is a threat to Russia. It has already taken root in Chechnya and Tatarstan, and when they will show themselves elsewhere is only a matter of time. This project is attractive. Even in Russia, a young girl from a prosperous family, a student at a prestigious University, suddenly throws it all away for these ideas. We don’t even have the conceptual apparatus to describe clearly why this is happening and what we’re dealing with. We have absolutely nothing to oppose it with. We don’t have the things that the Russian people could face death for, no clear ideology for the young generation, who could believe that Russia and Russian world is something light, which can give the world the light at the end of the tunnel.

Q: What then for you?

A: For me, as a historian by training, on this question the answer is very simple. It’s a hodgepodge of territories, cobbled together completely at random, then thanks to Lenin and his ways to solve the national question. Before the revolution of 1917, there is no document where it is written, for example, Stetsko Ostap Ivanovich, Ukrainian. A Ukrainian is a Rusyn. There’s no Ukrainian identity as such. It is formed, of course, on the basis of a certain base, but artificially formed, in Galicia. In those days, Galician Rus was considered a fifth column of Moscow in Austria-Hungary. Russian merchants financed, as we would now say, sponsored the NGOs, helped the Church, gave money on printing, the support of publishers, newspapers, clubs and so on. The Austro-Hungarian ruling circles were very alarmed and also did the same as do the rulers of independent Ukraine: they closed down all the Russian organizations. Here then is a kind of ideological construct, based on the rejection of everything Russian. This ideology was originally a petty, farm-fresh, whole Ukrainian nationalism for peasants, vyshyvanochki as we call them, on the principle of: “My house with the edge that I have on my farm will be Ukrainian national state, and foreigners will help us.” This, it turns out, the slogan of Ostap Bender is the national idea, instead of this, a positive sense. If you take away the Russophobia from this ideology, there is nothing left. Now we think that the Ukrainian people at the moment are united as never before, but it’s more like a collective madness. There are historical reasons why Ukraine will cease to exist in the next 30 years at the most.

Interestingly, in the course of history, nothing has changed: everything that happened in Galician Rus in terms of replacing identity happened to us too, in the Donetsk region. When I was a student in the history department, we had an underground club called “the Club of Novorossia.” We met in the hostel, brewed cheap Georgian tea there and discussed historical topics. We were stuck with Ukrainian discourse imposed from the top and we tried to break it, and at the lectures and seminars we engaged in fierce debates with teachers. And usually we won, because the arguments were strong, and we studied the sources. For that, we felt the pressure from the leadership of the University, we were evicted from hostels through bad grades, they tried to exclude us from the University. At that time, incidentally, I first encountered the Ukrainian radicals. It was the year 2000, we played against the Ukrainian Nazis. They had money and an information website, and we had essentially nothing. We debated and once even had a fight. “Well, if war comes, we’ll aim for your legs,” one of the guys told us then. Now they’re all up in arms on the opposite side.

Q: You took your ideas from history books. But your opponents, your teachers, read the same books. Why there could be such a discrepancy?

A: The source is always the same. It’s all in the interpretation. For example, Kievan Rus in Ukrainian textbooks is considered the first period of Ukrainian statehood. But wait, Russia was just “Rus”. The prefix “Kiev” was introduced much later, to denote the historical period, and separated from other periods. Subsequently, the capital was changed to Moscow. Russia was, for example, Vladimir. It turned out that the Muscovites were able to get approval for the Horde to collect tribute from the autonomous principalities, saw money under this deal and thus strengthened, and what? This, it turns out, other people, enslave the rest? No, these were the same people, the same dynasty. As it so happened that Yaroslav the Wise was Ukrainian, and his cousin Yuri Dolgoruky, suddenly bloody Moskal, who burned the capital of Ukraine?

Or take a later time: the Cossack period. You can take the sources and see what Bogdan Khmelnitsky fought for: for the Russian land, the Orthodox, “neither Jew nor Pole” («ни жида, ни ляха»). What says the Ukrainian textbook? That, it turns out, was “the national liberation struggle for the independence of Ukraine from Poland.” So the Cossacks got together and decided to join the Moscow Kingdom. Further went natural process of regional struggle, the Cossack elite federated with the Russian empire. And Ukrainian textbooks throw this against people, and that they allegedly began to harass and destroy. That’s all the bullshit we fought against in University lectures and seminars. Everyone said Gubarev is a Russian nationalist who denies Ukrainian history. The SBU already took note. But I want to stress that we were not against Ukrainian culture. It is possible and necessary to study both language and literature, although personally I don’t like Shevchenko, but the most valuable part of Ukrainian literature consider what has been created in the Soviet period. That is, we had no cultural exclusion of Ukrainians, but it was the political rejection of Ukrainians, when speech came about the denial of everything Russian.

Q: Looking back, what would you have done differently?

A: If to speak about last year, I probably don’t have to try to build a consensus, and it was necessary to bend the line and act more decisively. But if we look a few years ago, there I probably wouldn’t have changed: there is a global condition over which one person has no power. The only time one soldier in the field, when events occur at the turning point, the moment rearrangements: but there I was able and thus wrote my name in history. Although I believe that the path ahead is still very long, Russia will soon have to answer far more serious issues than the war in the Donbass. And no adequate answers now.

people like this must be deniable false flag assets who failed the task

The scammer Bondo Dorovskikh impersonating volunteer in the media
Novorosinform.org, Jun 30 2015

w644h387

On the website popular on Ukraine TV channel on Jun 24 published an interview with a Russian entrepreneur, employee of the Moscow construction company” on behalf of Bondo Dorovskikh (pictured). Previously Dorovskikh gave an interview to RFE/RL which has been quoted many of the world’s media, as well as Russian TV channel “Ren”. According to Dorovskikh, he in the end of 2014 left Russia in the Donbass to fight on the side of the militia. First was in the brigade “Ghost” Alexei Mozgovoi, then became part of one of the divisions of “DNR”. But quickly “disappointed” in what direction is chosen. Dorovskikh told about Russian soldiers supposedly fighting on the territory Nesaleshnoe (Незалежной), and about how he received the “blessing” of the FSB in the Ivanovo region:

I wrote to the email of the FSB in the Central office, after which I was called in UFSB Ivanovo region and asked to sign a statement that I refuse to get an answer to your question. When the FSB said that he would go into the militia, has blessed me and wished good health, good luck and said that such people, as I am a little.

But in fact he was unlikely to obtain such a “blessing” and he is not your average “Moscow businessman.” Bondo Dorovskikh, born in 1974, native of Dushanbe and resident of Ivanovo, has three criminal convictions. They are for “assignment or waste of another’s property,” “theft of objects or documents of scientific or cultural value,” and “fraud of exceptional magnitude.” In Jun 2012 in Ivanovo, street Revolutionary Dorovskikh illegally restrained girls, so that prisoners had to be released with the help of riot police. On the website of judicial officers indicated that Dorovskikh has debts to bailiffs for more than 400,000 roubles. Commentators have noted numerous discrepancies and factual errors in the texts of his interviews. This suggests that the Ivanovo scammer gives an interview to the world media solely for the money and only to the concept that the customer interview.

in my opinion, this is an attempt to create synthetic racial chaos (to go with tarpley’s “synthetic terror”)

Goldman-Sachs Boss, Bilderberger Peter Sutherland: Europe Needs More Refugees
Kurt Nimmo, Infowars, Jun 29 2015

Following a meeting with Pope Francis, the boss of Goldman-Sachs International and Bilderberg attendee Peter Sutherland said European countries have not taken their “fair share” of refugees from African countries and Syria. Sutherland told RTÉ radio 240,000 immigrants flooding into Europe each year is not an economic burden on countries such as Germany and the UK. On the contrary, he said, a quarter million or more immigrants a year represents an economic and social benefit for Europe, Britain and Ireland. Sutherland said:

Governments have to lead by giving the positive news that migrants are good for a community, economically and every other way rather than constantly expressing them as a burden because they are not really a burden. Within a very short period of time they contribute positively to the community in which they live.

Sutherland cited studies he said demonstrate the economic benefits of mass migration into Europe from Africa and elsewhere. Despite numerous studies showing the negative economic and social impact of mass migration on Germany and Europe, the EU, the political establishment and the corporate media are in favor of it. Vincent Cooper writes:

Uncontrolled, unskilled Third World immigration is the economics of the madhouse, yet respectable politicians like Herr Schaeuble (Finance Minister) in Germany support it and, until recently, virtually the whole British political establishment  were gung-ho for it, and still would be were it not for Nigel Farage.

Contrary to proclamations by Sutherland, Schaeuble, and the political establishment in Europe, the mass migration of Muslims into a largely Christian Europe has resulted in a serious social crisis. Howard Koplowitz writes:

Europe’s high youth unemployment rate and limited economic mobility has long been cited as a major factor for young people becoming radicalized and joining terrorist organizations like the Islamic State militant groups.

He cites Angela Merkel, who once supported the idea of multiculturalism in Germany. She said, according to the BBC:

We kidded ourselves a while. We said: ‘They won’t stay, sometime they will be gone,’ but this isn’t reality. And of course, the multicultural approach, to live side by side and to enjoy each other … has failed, utterly failed.

“Rocket” Surkov’s propaganda
Dmitry Naumov, Rospres.com, Jun 25 2015

85aab5422e94e71eb302758275db3477

New Patriotic conservative channel “Rocket”, announced the other day, should help to Vladislav Surkov to return to politics from Ukrainian links. The creation of the channel will be supervised by the Trustee Surkov, Alexander Kazakov. Well-known political consultant and previously served as the important instructions of their leader: designed youth movement in the party “Rodina”, and then pseudo-scientifically division of the youth movement “Nashi” — “Local”. The last important result of his work was the organization of elections in Luhansk People’s Republic. Popular personalities, such as Ivan Okhlobystin, Mikhail Porechenkov and Zakhar Prilepin, are called to be “accelerating” steps for “Rocket”, which Vladislav Surkov must break away from “Ukrainian wore” and fly back to political posts.

Left to right: Mikhail Porechenkov, Ilya Lennikov, Ivan Okhlobystin and Alexander Kazakov

Politics Vladislav Surkov resigned in 2011 after losing a hard game to his successor, Vyacheslav Volodin. Is responsible for personnel policy of the Kremlin, party building and the youth movement Surkov from 2013 became responsible for South Ossetia, Abkhazia, and subsequently for Ukraine. Moreover, Ukraine Surkov threw on the eve of the tragic events of the Maidan-2014. However, its connection to political processes in Ukraine the situation was not saved and as a result Surkov, behind the scenes, began to manage the activities of the LDNR, as well as their political structure. Within the state of construction of the unrecognized republics of Donbass Vladislav Surkov drew his trusted figure, Alexander Kazakov. And judging by public figures of the Luhansk National Republic, Kazakov with the instruction Surkov did. “Thank you, Sasha Kazakov, for the high level of the event. Gentlemen, let’s all thank Sasha. He did a good job,” praised in the fall of 2014 is the result of the work of Kazakov journalist Alexander Chalenko.

By the middle of 2015 Surkov is not too popular in Ukraine. Entered into force “Minsk agreement”, and all activities of the unrecognized republics are governed by them and managed by leaders LDNR, Plotnitsky and Zakharchenko. “Manual” managing political construction, in which the adept Surkov, no longer need. However, Surkov himself, accustomed to power, it is necessary to keep the influence on the media, so there is the idea channel “Rocket”, to promote which used domestic media persons that support the breakaway Donbass. Thus in the leadership of the new channel are Ivan Okhlobystin and Zakhar Prilepin, repeatedly keenly expressed in relation to the ATO taking place in the South-East of Ukraine. Mikhail Porechenkov, the actor filmed firing a machine gun in the direction of Ukrainian positions while wearing a “Press” helmet, which explicitly prohibits the use of weapons. Sergey Lukyanenko is a science fiction writer with a pronounced pro-Russian and anti-Ukrainian position. Nikolai Gastello is a successful Ukrainian political strategist, earned points in the process in Ukraine, which was awarded a high position in an ambitious project. And, of course, Alexander Kazakov, proven before Surkov has long been part of domestic activity and in last place of work in Lugansk. There is no doubt, in the case of the “Rocket” Alexander Kazakov would be the real architect of the project. Popular writers and actors can, of course, have its position, which coincides with the declared purpose of “Rocket”. However, the real, and not a declared aim of “Rocket” will be the return of Vladislav Surkov in the big Russian policy.

Now announcing the launch of the TV channel interview it is not about Ukraine, about which it would seem appropriate to speak to the congregation, but about the traditional values of Russia and their propaganda, we are talking about political simulation within the country, in which so filled his hand Vladislav Surkov and his protege Alexander Kazakov. In fact even at the time of his ‘disgrace’, Surkov Kozakov assured his readers that his “boss” has not left the political elite, on the contrary. “The era of Surkov in politics is not over! It has only just begun!” is the title of a detailed dithyramb to Vladislav Yurievich (Surkov) from Alexander Kazakov on Dec 28 2011. The same evening, Alexander Kazakov explained that only Surkov’s interview in the “news” stopped the “Orange” threat to Russia emanating from the Swamp area. It is quite possible that “sensing” Surkov, from participation in popular Ukrainian journalist Anatoly Shary, actively opposing the current Ukrainian authorities, without giving neither in Ukraine’s right to independence, nor in its European integration intentions. In his Facebook Anatoly Shary responded to the invitation refusal: “the Only way I can remain unbiased and free.” Under direct control of Vladislav Yurievich to talk about impartiality and freedom will be difficult, if not impossible.

As for the prospects of “Rocket” to succeed, they depend on many factors. First of all, the new channel need to find funding Okhlobystin and Porechenkov said that for the full operation of the channel they need $1.5b, the actors kind of money. However, the amount claimed as required, said on state scope of activity, even above the two States. For example, the creation of a purely oppositional TV channel “Ren”, taking into account equipment costs, office rent, salaries of staff and non-staff cost Alexander Vinokurov (main shareholder “Ren”) for approximately $ 40m. The creation two years later of the TV channel LifeNews cost to its Creator, Aram Gavrielinov $10m cheaper. Why today, just 2 years after the broadcast of LifeNews, the new channel should cost 50 times more expensive, even considering the two-fold cost of equipment, we know of Surkov. The only comparable with the “Rocket” the budget of Russia Today TV channel, but there is $1.2b spent in the last 10 years, and these funds were launched four international TV channel in three languages with studios and offices in London and Washington. What is Vladislav Surkov, Alexander Kazakov and other co-founder of the new channel took such big money, where are they going to get them and how to master it, is a separate issue. And quite appropriate, since you are wondering what money is created jellyfish and other opposition resources.

FT suffering from propaganda bollocks, as usual

Jordan to set up buffer zone in southern Syria
Sam Jones, Roula Khalaf, Erika Solomon, FT.com, Jun 29 2015

LONDON/BEIRUT – Jordan is preparing to set up a security zone in southern Syria to prevent a jihadi victory in the area, carving out the first humanitarian “buffer zone” for rebels and refugees in four years of civil war. The main aim of the operation will be to create a safe area on Jordan’s border, stretching across the southern Syrian provinces of Deraa and Suwayda, and including the city of Deraa, where the Syrian uprising began in 2011, according to people familiar with the plans. Though the idea of creating a buffer area has long been circulating among Syria’s neighbours, until now it has received little serious attention. But Jordan’s hand is being forced by the shifting military situation inside Syria, and concerns that ISIS could grab territory on its border and threaten the Hashemite state. Jordan has also been involved in the Pindo training of ‘non-Jihadi’ rebels.

Diplomats say Amman and its international allies are keen to avoid “another Idlib”, referring to the Assad regime’s withdrawal from the north-western city in March. Jihadis soon took advantage of the retreat and established a strong presence there. Assad regime forces are currently under pressure in the city of Deraa, and are likely to withdraw in the coming days before the narrow corridor they control, which currently connects the city to Damascus, is cut off. The fall of the historic city of Palmyra to ISIS has also led to a significant rethinking of the anti-ISIS coalition’s plans in regard to Syria. Jihadis are now uncomfortably close to the Jordanian border and are using the area as a crossing point into Iraq. The group has been manoeuvring large military convoys through the area, according to intelligence officials. People familiar with the situation say that Jordan is also considering a militarised zone that will segregate the buffer area from Syrian regime forces to the North. It will be manned by existing fighters in the anti-Assad rebel southern brigades, reinforced with a brigade of troops currently being trained in Jordan. The Jordanian military will provide support.

The plans are backed by key members of the international coalition against ISIS, who are expected to provide behind-the-lines military support and advice, but it remains unclear whether Washington will sanction the move. Many in the Obama administration are hesitant about backing a ground operation in Syria. Although an official no-fly zone is unlikely to be established in support of the Jordanian operation, warnings could be sent to the Assad regime that any attempt to strike at the area by air would be met with a response. It is also unclear how much co-ordination has so far taken place to prepare southern Syria’s existing brigades of rebel fighters for the operation: senior figures in the southern brigades contacted by the FT said they were unaware of the plans. While Jordanian intervention is likely to be welcomed in Deraa, there is also a question over whether forces backed by Amman will be so readily supported in neighbouring Suwayda province, where Druze tribes have an uneasy relationship with anti-Assad forces.
