Broadly speaking, I hope that the many
geo-political triumphs of 2016 are translated into human triumphs in
both a literal and metaphysical sense.
This includes my wish for the
Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, Eurasian Economic Union and the
BRICS to fundamentally demonstrate that there is no turning back to
unipolarity in geo-politics.
What’s more is that I am confident that
long before the end of 2017, Syria and her allies will achieve their
final decisive victories over all terrorists still operating in the
Peace and prosperity will return to the
great people of Syria. The trilateral peace process led by Russia
with Iran and Turkey is one step in the right direction, in spite of
Turkey’s recent actions.
But my primary wish is for a conclusion to
the war in Donbass.
The war in Donbass has raged since 2014
and of all unnecessary wars ravaging the earth, it remains the most
unnecessary war of them all. It started not as a result of
terrorists flowing into Donbass, nor as a result of Western
intervention in Donbass, a historic Russian region that in modern
history has never been anything but Russian contrary to
idiotic Bolshevik* drawing of the internal map of Soviet
Rather a Western financed coup brought
fascists to power in Kiev, and the people of Donbass simply had
After suffering for decades under the
unreliable, disloyal and incompetent leadership of Kiev,
putting naked fascists in power was simply the last straw.
The Donetsk and Lugansk republics were
formed after the populations expressed their will to do so in a
democratic referendum. That should have been the end of the matter.
Instead fascist troops, their
mercenaries and free-lance terrorists, including Islamists, have
continually invaded Donbass. Men, women, children and even infants
have been pillaged, left homeless, or been tortured, killed
or rapedin the process.
In spite of the so-called Minsk II
agreement, Kiev’s troops continue to invade the Donbass republics.
Over the western Christmas period, the invasions became even
more lethal, although this was totally ignored by the mainstream
This is why it is my personal wish for
an historic injustice which has resulted in a deadly war to be
corrected in 2017.
The Donbass republics should be
recognised as sovereign entities, and if they elect to join the
Russian Federation, this should be accomplished without any caveats
In the longer term, this historically
fake state of Ukraine** will cease to exist. It is inevitable that
half or perhaps more of the Ukrainian regions will either join the
Russian Federation or form a confederacy that is friendly and open to
The western regions, which until 1945
were part of the Second Polish Republic, might well become a European
vassal state, a kind of cold weather Kosovo style mafia state. If
that is what the people wish, so be it, although they still have time
to reconsider the folly of their recent ways.
But whilst all of Ukraine suffers and
much of it is enslaved, the people of Donbass have struck the first
decisive blow against this fascist tyranny.
Their freedom must be achieved and can
be achieved rapidly, so long as the powers acting in the name of
justice do not forsake their duties.
