Ukraine: Military Coup Inevitable

Dmitry MININ | 09.02.2015 | 00:00

 The process aimed at finding peaceful settlement of Ukraine’s crisis is re-launched. Now the question pops up – who should sign a corresponding agreement on the part of Ukraine? A year has passed since the Ukraine’s government was forcibly removed. Experts strongly believe that a military coup is inevitable. It’s a matter of time, driving forces and scenarios. Ukrainian commentators see Putin behind everything that is happening there and call «Russian (Moskali) agents» those who take up arms to defend their rights and put forward their demands. Some more reasonable experts believe that the regime gave birth to its own undertakers by taking reckless and irresponsible steps. February 20 – the date of the coup could be the beginning of the «third Maidan revolution». Ukrainian media outlets write that serious mistakes take place as the war is being waged. The Poroshenko’s team is unprofessional. The banking system is destroyed by speculative currency rate games and skyrocketing inflation cannot be stopped because state bureaucrats see themselves as timeservers. The relationship between President Poroshenko and Prime Minister Yatsenyuk is shadowed. The risk is great and the clock is ticking marking days left before it starts. 
The motley crew to include National Guard voluntary formations, territorial defense units or the All-Ukraine Battalion Brotherhood is going to play the role of the Praetorian Guard. They have shown no combat prowess but acquired the reputation of being merciless. They are called «punishers» or «national scumbags». With no victories achieved on the battlefield they always raise ballyhoo about being betrayed. And there is some justification for saying so. The regime purposely selected Maidan activists to men the battalions. Sent to frontline they happen to be right in the heat of fighting. The regime hardly wants them to come back alive. The battalion commanders are made members of parliament to recognize their merits. It’s an extraordinary case in history. Nobody before has made unit commanders members of parliament. How can they fight? The main thing is that as politicians they are doomed to put the blame for their own mistakes on the powers that be. It’s politics as usual. The temptation to use private armies to prove one’s point is also great. The «brothers-in-arms» always have the same reason for protests - «Kiev is permeated by treason». Besides, many «scumbags» have tycoons behind their backs. For instance, Kolomoisky, a Ukrainian business oligarch of Jewish descent and the current governor of Dnipropetrovsk region, has a score to settle with Poroshenko. Victor Blagoda, the master of Transcarpathia, said he would react toughly in case the elements of Mukachevo-based 128th Guards Mountain Rifle Division will not break out of encirclement. According to him, the soldiers die because the President and the military command don’t do anything to help them. The first attempt took place in late January-early February. The decision was taken to disband Aidar, a territorial defense battalion of Ukraine, a volunteer military detachment of Ukraine's Ministry of Defense. The decision was cancelled. Kiev even promised to enhance the rebelled battalion’s combat capability. It’s a warning. The protesters’ demands included the introduction of martial law, the dismissal of Minister of Defense, heads of National Security and Defense Council, General Staff and Prosecutor’s Office, an audit of Ministry of Defense, the inclusion of «anti-terrorist operation» vets into the composition of OSCE mission and guaranteeing them the right to take part in the organization’s meetings. They wanted the parliament (Verkhovna Rada) to impeach the President. Sergey Melnichyuk, an MP from Radical Part, the founder and the first commander of Aidar, told at the meeting that Ukrainian forces shelled the Aidar positions near Schastye 15-20 times using Grad and Smerch multiple launch rocket systems. In his interview to 112 Ukraine TV channel he told that the Ukraine’s General Staff wanted to leave the populated area to the self-defense units. It offered $20 million to Aidar soldiers to leave the area. 
Azov battalion commander Andriy Belitsky, a die-hard Neo-Nazi and a member of parliament, threatens to take his fighters to the streets. Dmitry Yarosh, an MP and the leader of organization Pravy Sector, was taken to the Dnipropetrovsk hospital after being wounded. There he announced the establishment of a «parallel general staff» to coordinate the activities of volunteer units. According to him, there are around 40 volunteer battalions at the front. 
The Battalion Brotherhood is not unanimous, there are serious differences inside its ranks. For instance, the Kulchitsky and Donbass battalions clashed near Uglegorsk. Semen Semenchenko, the Donbass commander, was wounded. Andriy Parubiy, Vice Speaker of parliament, former Maidan commandant and Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, is on the list of candidates to become coup leaders. He was the target of failed assassination attempt by the end of last year. The traces led to the State Security Administration headed by loyal associate of President Valeriy Heletey. Perhaps Poroshenko will be held responsible for the action. 
The government takes urgent steps to prevent a regime change. No matter the decision is obviously late, the presidential administration plans to create a 25 thousand strong military police force to turn it into the pillar of Poroshenko’s regime. 
Fortifications are built in the capital. According to the head of the Kyiv police, Alexander Tereshchuk, eight block posts (actually fortified positions) protected from bullets, grenades and other projectiles are going to be erected at the entrances to the city. Snipers will be sent to garrisons. Protection of bridges will be enhanced with police patrols. Metal detectors are to be installed at subway entrances. The civil defense system under the operational staff led by the head of City Council has been moved to higher state of readiness. The Ukraine’s Security Service under Valentin Nalivaichenko has joined the fight against plotters in the usual irrational manner. The Security Service said the organization All-Ukrainian Battalion Brotherhood is funded and guided by…Russian special services, no matter it calls for war against Russia. Public was shown an arms cache found near Kiev with «huge stockpiles of weapons and explosives» prepared for a coup. Probably, it was the Security Service itself to put them there because the national guards have more than enough of arms and ammunition. Viacheslav Fursa, the head of All-Ukrainian Battalion Brotherhood, is called provocateur acting in the interests of Russia. Ukrainian Lieutenant Colonel Mykhailo Chornobai of General Staff has been arrested. They say he is a «Russian agent» who was the central figure of the plot. Besides, he happened to be guilty for all the setbacks suffered lately by Ukrainian forces. According to Nalivaichenko, Mykhailo Chornobai was responsible for information leakage to Life News and other Russian channels. He allegedly told them about «preparations for provocations» to take place in the area of «anti-terrorist operation» to enable journalists get there first. CIA-trained Nalivaichenko does not realize that the accusations confirm the involvement of the service he heads. No reasonable Ukrainian takes the Security Service seriously now. 
With the chaos reigning in Kiev the measures taken will probably not be enough. The adoption of new peace plan for Ukraine may be used as a signal. As soon as the first guidelines became known the «Maidan community» called it a national treason. The plotters taking power is a scenario unacceptable for Luhansk and Donetsk peoples’ republics as well as the larger part of Ukraine. Europe would be in a predicament dealing with outright Nazi. The plotters’ power will not be effective. It’s clear for everyone with rational thinking. But Ukraine is hit by the wave of irrationality. That’s why a new coup seems to be inevitable. 
But it won’t be the end. Such odious degenerates cannot hold the power for a long time. The next move will be done by regular military as the only force to calm down a crowd set out to destroy the state. Many regular servicemen have been in prison and could see with their own eyes those they had to fight. They may be the right people for serious discussions on the future of Ukraine and fair reforms needed to benefit the all the people of Ukraine.

Münchener SIKO: Ukraine-Krise entzweit USA und Europa./Demo: "Kein Frieden mit der NATO!"

  Annette Klepzigs Wochenumschau:

Ukraine-Krise entzweit USA und Europa. Matthias Gebauer Aktualisiert am 08. Februar 2015, 16:26 Uhr
München - Auf offener Bühne beschwören die USA und Europa im Ukraine-Konflikt Einigkeit. Hinter verschlossenen Türen aber krachte es am Wochenende bei der Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz heftig.
John Kerry hatte am Sonntag eine Mission. Was auch immer der wortgewandte US-Außenminister auf dem Podium der Sicherheitskonferenz zum Ukraine-Konflikt sagte, ergänzte er mit einem Satz über die Einigkeit zwischen den USA und Europa....   -    Zwar wurde die aktuelle Initiative von Kanzlerin Merkel und Frankreichs Präsident Hollande von den USA zumindest zurückhaltend gelobt. Intern aber wurde in der US-Delegation gelästert, was Gespräche über ein Abkommen bringen sollen, das bereits im September in Minsk unterzeichnet und dann nie umgesetzt worden ist. Selbst das Stichwort vom "Moscow Bullshit" machte die Runde.  Was die USA wirklich von der deutschen Linie der Diplomatie halten, wurde in München hinter gut gedämmten Türen gesagt....  - .....Die Pläne für Waffenlieferungen sind offenbar konkreter als bisher bekannt. So berichtete der US-Viersternegeneral Philip Breedlove in der gleichen Runde, möglich sei die Lieferung von Systemen zur Erkennung und Abwehr von Artillerie-Feuer an die Ukrainer. Zudem bräuchten sie Technik für sichere Kommunikation zwischen den Truppenteilen. Zu einem möglichen Paket gehören laut dem General, der auch Nato-Oberbefehlshaber ist, auch unbemannte Drohnen, um die pro-russischen Separatisten aufklären zu können.
"Kein Frieden mit der NATO!".  Jens Wernicke 07.02.2015
Der Historiker und Geschäftsführer der Initiative "Internationale Juristen und Juristinnen gegen den Atomkrieg" Reiner Braun zu den Protesten gegen die Sicherheitskonferenz
Während sich auf der 51. Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz Politiker und Experten hinter verschlossenen Türen treffen, um sich nach Selbstdarstellung[1] in Gesprächen und Diskussionen "der Förderung friedlicher Konfliktlösung und internationaler Kooperation beim Umgang mit gegenwärtigen und zukünftigen sicherheitspolitischen Herausforderungen" zu widmen, protestierte vor diesen Türen ein breites zivilgesellschaftliches Bündnis gegen diese Zusammenkunft. Das sei notwendig, so heißt es im Aufruf[2], da die Konferenz entgegen ihrer Selbstdarstellung weder dem Frieden noch der Sicherheit diene, sondern vielmehr eine "Versammlung wirtschaftlicher, politischer und militärischer Machteliten vor allem aus den NATO-und EU-Staaten, die sich über Strategien zur Aufrechterhaltung ihrer globalen Vorherrschaft und über gemeinsame Militärinterventionen verständigen" darstelle.  -      Herr Braun, Sie sind Geschäftsführer der deutschen Sektion der International Association of Lawers Against Nuclear Arms[3] (IALANA), die wie andere Organisationen[4] auch zu Protesten gegen die vom 6. bis 8. Februar stattfindende 51. Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz[5] aufgerufen hat.Was hat Sie dazu bewegt?     -    Reiner Braun: Die IALANA als juristische Friedensorganisation lehnt Krieg und Gewalt ab. Dabei wenden wir uns besonders gegen Verstöße gegen das Völkerrecht, beispielsweise also gegen die Waffenlieferungen und den Bundeswehreinsatz im Nordirak, der gegen das Grundgesetz verstößt[6].   -    Die sogenannte Sicherheitskonferenz ist für uns tatsächlich eine Unsicherheits-, Militarisierungs- und AufrüstungskonferenzVerhandlungen, Kooperationen, zivile Konfliktlösungsmechanismen und Prävention spielen hier nur eine untergeordnete Rolle und werden bestenfalls wohl als zivil-militärische Faktoren thematisiert. Dabei haben doch die Kriege der letzten 10 Jahre erneut gezeigt, dass.... 


"There is some hope that a solution to the conflict may emerge, following German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande’s visit to Moscow for talks with Vladimir Putin."

Lavrov: US escalated Ukraine crisis at every stage, blamed Russia.

Sergey Lavrov has lashed out at the US for their double standards over Ukraine and taking steps that “only promoted further aggravation” of the conflict. He added Russia is ready to guarantee agreementsbetween Kiev and the self-proclaimed republics.
One of the major sticking points of the crisis so far has been the failure of Kiev to engage in talks with militia leaders in the East of the country. Lavrov is staggered the US, who talked with the Taliban during their invasion of Afghanistan, through channels in Doha, Qatar, is unable to put pressure on Kiev to engage in discussions.
“In the case of Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen and Sudan our partners actively asked governments to enter into dialogue with the opposition, even if they were extremists. However, during the Ukrainian crisis, they act differently, making up excuses and try to justify the use of cluster bombs,” the Russian Foreign Minister said, who was speaking at a security conference in Munich on Saturday......

Amid the meme being spread by Pentagon «sources» to the media that Russia is currently more unpredictable militarily than at any time since the Cold War, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is arriving in the Ukrainian capital to obviously «seal the deal» on American «lethal defensive weapons» and military advisers being sent to Ukraine to help it battle self-determination seekers in the Donbass region. Although Kerry said in Kiev that the U.S. will not provide weapons to Ukraine, he is either naïve or lying about previous U.S. arms shipments to the Kiev authorities.o Ukrainian military transport aircraft have, for the past year since the Zionist/fascist putschists overthrew the government of President Viktor Yanukovych in Kiev, been flying around the world, including the United States, collecting everything from weapons and military helicopters to armored vehicles and ammunition for Ukraine’s polyglot army of regular troops and neo-Nazi militia units....


Obama bestätigt US-geführten Putsch in Kiew. 
Ukraine US-Präsident Barack Obama hat in einem TV-Interview bestätigt, dass der Staatsstreich in Kiew ein „US-Deal“ war. 
Der russische Präsident Wladimir Putin sei von den Ereignissen in der Ukraine Ende 2013 und Anfang 2014 überrascht worden, „nachdem wir einen Deal zur Machtübergabe ausgehandelt hatten.“ Das sagte US-Präsident Barack Obama am 1.2.15. im Gespräch mit Fareed Zakaria von CNN: „… Mr. Putin made this decision around Crimea and Ukraine - not because of some grand strategy, but essentially because he was caught off-balance by the protests in the Maidan and Yanukovych then fleeing after we had brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine …” (deutsch bei RT deutsch)   -   Der US-Präsident bestätigt damit, worauf nicht nur ich hinwies in den Texten vom 26.2.14 über den „Staatsstreich als Strafe für Nein-Sager“ und vom 1.3.14 über die „5 Milliarden Dollar für den Staatsstreich“. Insbesondere US-Autoren hatten immer wieder darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass die USA eine aktive Rolle beim Regimewechsel in Kiew spielten. Stephen Cohen hatte in der US-Zeitschrift The Nation am 11. .....
Obamas Sicherheitsstrategie: USA müssen Supermacht bleiben.  Florian Rötzer 07.02.2015
Auffallend ist, dass die Vereinten Nationen nicht einmal erwähnt werden, die USA verstehen sich als Führungsmacht mit wechselnden Koalitionen der Willigen
Eigentlich wäre das Weiße Haus verpflichtet, jährliche seine Sicherheitsstrategie dem Kongress vorzustellen. Das hat weder Obama noch sein Vorgänger Bush gemacht, obgleich sie beide Kriege geführt haben. Bush hatte 2002 (Amerikanischer Internationalismus[1]) und 2006 (Die größte Bedrohung geht vom Iran aus[2]) eine Sicherheitsstrategie vorgelegt, Obama erst 2010. Gestern stellte seine Sicherheitsberaterin Susan Rice nicht im Weißen Haus, sondern im Thinktank Brookings Institution die neuen Leitlinien[3] vor....   -   ...Überhaupt sei man dabei, das internationale System zu modernisieren und sich dabei auf den asiatisch-pazifischen Raum zu konzentrieren. Auch deswegen ist eine stärkere Nato, deren Mitgliedsländer mehr Geld in Rüstung investieren und bereits für Auslandseinsätze sind, zur Entlastung notwendig.....
Former CIA Contractor: ‘ISIS is a Completely Fabricated Enemy and Funded By the United States. Press TV
Former CIA contractor Steven Kelley says that the ISIS terrorist group is a fabricated enemy and funded by the United States.
“This is a completely fabricated enemy,” he said in a phone interview with Press TV from Anaheim, California on Thursday.  “The funding is completely from the United States and its allies and for people to think that this enemy is something that needs to be attacked in Syria or Iraq is a farce because obviously this is something that we create it, we control and only now it has become convenient for us to attack this group as a legitimate enemy,” Kelley added. He made the remarks as US President Barack Obama is under pressure to seek congressional approval before expanding Washington’s military air campaign against ISIS targets from Iraq into neighboring Syria.... - ....“The funding is completely from the United States and its allies and for people to think that this enemy is something that needs to be attacked in Syria or Iraq is a farce because obviously this is something that we create it, we control and only now it has become convenient for us to attack this group as a legitimate enemy,” Kelley added.   -    He made the remarks as US President Barack Obama is under pressure to seek congressional approval before expanding Washington’s military air campaign against ISIS targets from Iraq into neighboring Syria....

»Diejenigen, die Sanktionen gegenüber Russland verhängt haben sind genau diejenigen, die den Konflikt losgetreten haben.«        CDU-Politiker Willy Wimmer im Gespräch mit dem deutschsprachigen Programm des iranischen Rundfunks
Am vergangenen Sonnabend gab der CDU-Politiker Willy Wimmer dem deutschsprachigen Programm des Iranischen Rundfunks (IRIB) ein Interview. Ein Auszug:
Man macht Russland ein weiteres Mal für die Zuspitzung der Krise in der Ukraine verantwortlich, weshalb auch die EU-Außenminister neue Sanktionen gegen Moskau beschlossen haben. Wie beurteilen Sie diese Entscheidung der EU-Außenminister?
(…) Diejenigen, die Sanktionen gegenüber Russland verhängt haben – das gilt sowohl für die europäischen Staaten als auch für die Vereinigten Staaten als auch für Kanada –, das sind genau diejenigen, die den Konflikt gegenüber der Russischen Föderation losgetreten haben. Sie sind im klassischen Sinne die Konfliktpartei: die europäischen Staaten und die beiden nordamerikanischen Staaten. Vor diesem Hintergrund sind sie Kriegspartei in der Auseinandersetzung, die wir derzeit auf dem Territorium der Ukraine erleben. Also, vor diesem Hintergrund sollten die Europäer, also die Staaten der Europäischen Union, nicht den Eindruck erwecken wollen, sie seien eine irgendwie geartete neutrale Gruppe, die versucht, den Konflikt beizulegen. Im Gegenteil, das ist die Staatengruppe, die auf Weisung der Vereinigten Staaten.....

Burning Victims to Death: Still a Common Practice.  By Glenn Greenwald
February 05, 2015 "ICH" - "The Intercept" - The latest ISIS atrocity – releasing a video of a captured Jordanian fighter pilot being burned alive – prompted substantial discussion yesterday about this particular form of savagery. It is thus worth noting that deliberately burning people to death is achievable – and deliberately achieved – in all sorts of other ways:“Living Under Drones: Death, Injury and Trauma to Civilians From US Drone Practices in Pakistan”, NYU School of Law and Stanford University Law School, 2012:
The most immediate consequence of drone strikes is, of course, death and injury to those targeted or near a strike. The missiles fired from drones kill or injure in several ways, including through incineration[3], shrapnel, and the release of powerful blast waves capable of crushing internal organs. Those who do survive drone strikes often suffer disfiguring burns and shrapnel wounds, limb amputations, as well as vision and hearing loss. . . .    -     in addition, because the Hellfire missilesfired from drones often incinerate the victims’ bodies, and leave them in pieces and unidentifiable, traditional burial processes are rendered impossible. As Firoz Ali Khan, a shopkeeper whose father-in-law’s home was struck, graphically described, “These missiles are very powerful. They destroy human beings . . .There is nobody left and small pieces left behind. Pieces. Whatever is left is just little pieces of bodies and cloth.” A doctor who has treated drone victims described how “[s]kin is burned so that you can’t tell cattle from human.” ....    -    .....Lebanon’s President Emile Lahoud also claimedthat the IDF made use of phosphorus munitions against civilians in Lebanon.  Human Rights Watch, March 25, 2009 (“Israel: White Phosphorus Use Evidence of War Crimes”):   -    Israel’s repeated firing of white phosphorus shells over densely populated areas of Gaza during its recent military campaign was indiscriminate and is evidence of war crimes, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today.    The 71-page report, “Rain of Fire: Israel’s Unlawful Use of White Phosphorus in Gaza,” provides witness accounts of the devastating effects that white phosphorus munitions had on civilians and civilian property in Gaza....   -   ....Phuc went outside and saw the plane getting closer, and then heard the sound of four bombs hitting the ground. She couldn’t run. She didn’t know until later, but the bombs carried napalm, a gel-like incendiary that clings to its victims as it burns.  “Suddenly I saw the fire everywhere around me,” she remembers. “....

Oliver Janich spricht mit Gerhard Wisnewski über den Terror in Paris. Gibt es ein eindeutige Beweise für eine Operation unter falscher Flagge.? Was steckt hinter dem Krieg gegen den Islamismus? Wie passen die Pegida-Demonstrationen in dieses Szenario? Wie funktioniert die Manipulation in den Medien?
