Non-Kremlin Sources on the Ukraine Crisis

18a

There is the idea that if you argue in favor of the Russian perspective, or against the Kiev fascist clique/Euromaidan perspective, this means you have become a victim (or are a paid agent) of Russian propaganda, or the “Kremlin propaganda machine” as it’s often called.

This issue is a distraction, but it keeps coming up, so we’re going to address it here. People like this guy can’t formulate an argument based on facts and evidence, so they believe they can counter anything they disagree with by saying it’s from a Russian source:

Roman K: Try to do a little research (not katsap sources) and maybe you will learn a little history and reality… you are aware that muscovy is home to nearly half the world’s fascists & nazis, right? Many are putler’s buddies… You are aware that katsaps, including the main katsap, collaborated with hitler, right? You are aware that you are so full of katsap useful idiot propaganda, right?

Note: Katsap is a derogatory term for Russian used by Ukrainians.

We haven’t done “a little research” and don’t know “a little history” like you, Roman. We’ve done a lot of research and know a lot of history too. Perhaps it isn’t the Russophobic, revanchist, whine-fest version of history taught in Ukrainian and other eastern European schools, but it’s never too late for you!

Here are just a few of the non-Katsap, non-Kremlin-funded, non-Russian sources we use in our research of the Ukraine crisis and its connection to the political situation in Russia. Inclusion in this list does not denote endorsement of the individual’s overall views:

While Congress is busy condemning Russia (H.

The hypocrisy and recklessness of this situation is intolerable to the extreme!

H.Res. 758 is a Russophobic rant full of falsehoods and steeped in superpower hypocrisy. – Patrick Buchanan

LETTER:

Dear Congressman / Congresswoman X,

How dare you vote yes on H. RES. 758 “strongly condemning the actions of the Russian Federation, under President Vladimir Putin”, when we find out mere days later about the crimes against humanity described in the CIA Torture Report!

Do you have no shame? Does anyone in our government have any shame or accountability?

How dare the Bush Administration sanction these horrendous acts of torture that, now publicly revealed, bring shame and dishonor upon our great nation!

How dare the Obama Administration neglect investigating and trying all guilty parties, bringing further shame and disgrace upon us all!

How dare Congress allow and enable these war crimes and atrocities which will go down in history as one of the darkest and most disgraceful chapters in our history! How does it feel to be complicit in a chapter of American history which rivals slavery and Native American genocide?

You may say you didn’t know. If you are lying and covering up your own knowledge of or complicity in these atrocities, we the people call upon you to step down from office immediately.

If you are telling the truth, this means that you were negligent to the extreme in your duties and we call upon you to step down from office immediately.

You may say that you were not holding office when these atrocities occurred. In that case, please explain why you neglected to carry out your duty to investigate this matter and work to hold those responsible accountable for their actions, while wasting time and resources involving yourself in the senseless condemnation of Russia for activities which you have provided no evidence of? Your shameless hypocrisy will not be tolerated any longer. We call upon you to step down from office immediately.

Therefore, we demand immediate apologies to:

-all injured parties and their families;

-everyone in the United States and around the world who has been lied to;

-everyone whose life has been shattered by these shameful policies;

-Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian people who you have attempted to smear and defame with your hypocritical and highly dubious accusations;

-Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian people who have suffered under our misguided policy of regime change in Syria, leading to the chaos that now exists in their nation;

-the people of nations around the world who live with the consequences of the US government’s insane ideology of “the responsibility to protect” which is now revealed to be “the licence to destabilize and torture”.

-every taxpayer who has unwittingly funded these atrocities in their name.

After issuing your apologies, you are ordered to step down from office.

In other words, you’re fired!

Regards,

YOUR NAME


Also contact your Senators and demand they vote no on this reckless and insane piece of legislation!

no war ukraine

No matter how many times the American people say no to regime change in Syria through “limited military action with no boots on the ground” (in other words – WAR) the warmongers in both parties never give up.

The same applies to war against Russia (in other words – World War III). The American people do not under any circumstances want to declare war on Russia for the benefit of an ethno-Nazi Lvov-Kiev statelet run by a CIA-installed junta.

But is that what Congress is actually doing as we speak?

Behind the White House’s political smokescreen in Ferguson and New York, US lawmakers were busy sliding through a pre-declaration of war against Russia.

Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich warns about the House’s reckless adoption of the HR 758: “NATO encirclement, the US-backed coup in Ukraine, an attempt to use an agreement with the European Union to bring NATO into Ukraine at the Russian border, a US nuclear first-strike policy, are all policies which attempt to substitute force for diplomacy.”

US Declares War on Russia, from 21st Century Wire:

http://21stcenturywire.com/2014/12/04/us-declares-war-on-russia-step-one/

H.Res.758 – Strongly condemning the actions of the Russian Federation, under President Vladimir Putin, which has carried out a policy of aggression against neighboring countries aimed at political and economic domination:

https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/house-resolution/758

Pepe Escobar: THE US CONGRESS HAS DECLARED WAR ON RUSSIA. I can’t emphasize enough how terrifying – and stupid – this is. And now it’s official. House Resolution 758 was approved yesterday by an overwhelming, bipartisan 411-10 score at the US Congress.

This resolution, rushed to a vote only two weeks after it was introduced, depicts Russia as an “Aggressor Nation” which has invaded Ukraine and was behind the downing of MH-17. The resolution virtually calls for war on Russia.
Take a very good look at the language:
The President of the United States, in consultation with the US Congress, must “conduct a review of the force posture, readiness, and responsibilities of the United States Armed Forces and the forces of other members of NATO to determine if the contributions and actions of each is sufficient to meet the obligations of collective self defense under article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty and to specify the measures needed to remedy any deficiencies.”
Translation: the US Congress wants the Empire of Chaos to use NATO’s collective security doctrine under article 5 (an attack on one member is an attack on all members) to advance a war on Russia, even though Ukraine is not a member (but will soon become a major non-NATO ally).
The resolution now goes to the Senate. If it becomes law, the resolution allows the President of the United States to declare war on Russia bypassing the formal permission of Capitol Hill.

Freedom Fries are never free! Tell Congress that instead of declaring war on Russia, we could try the old trick of renaming food again. Here are some suggestions:

Borscht could be renamed freedom soup, vodka could become spirits of libertycaviar could be Pussy Riot eggsand Beef Stroganoff could be Beef Bandera!


Also let them know that we do not buy into the propaganda myths used by the government and the media to bring us back into a Cold War based solely on Russophobia.

These anti-Russia myths include:

Myth #1 – It is in America’s national security interests to weaken Russia. Russia is our enemy and always has been.

Stephen Cohen: “So for saying this, I’m called a Putin apologist. These people have no understanding. They don’t care about real national security. So I’m the patriot. I’m the one who cares about American national security. And all they’re doing is the old kind of McCarthy-ite red baiting.”

The American Who Dared Make Putin’s Case:

http://www.newsweek.com/american-who-dared-make-putins-case-231388

No, Russia has not always been America’s enemy. More often than not, we have been friends. Let’s take one example from history that very few people know about.

Myth #2 – Putin is an evil dictator who wants to invade Europe and establish a new USSR.

We’ve all heard politicians and media talking heads tossing around the quote from Putin that he wants to restore the USSR, but here is the actual quote:

“Anyone who doesn’t regret the passing of the Soviet Union has no heart. Anyone who wants it restored has no brains.” – Vladimir Putin.

https://bperet.wordpress.com/2014/03/18/the-crimea-referendum-why-you-probably-shouldnt-care/

Here’s a balanced and informed analysis of Vladimir Putin which claims that he is “neither the defiant counterweight” to Anglo-American dominance, nor the “Putler” of Euromaidan fantasy. I don’t completely agree with this analysis / critique, but it’s definitely worth a read:

Sorry America, Ukraine isn’t all about you:

You can see it in the aftermath of the Odessa fire massacre that killed over 40 pro-Russian separatists: It shut up even Navalny. The liberal-yuppie elites’ momentum is over. Putin’s popularity among the rest of the country has never been higher. So if Putin is neither the defiant counterweight hero or the neo-Stalinist imperialist, but rather playing a Russian version of vicious Nixon politics, what should the West do? That’s easy: Stay the Hell out of Russia’s way for a while…

http://pando.com/2014/05/14/sorry-america-the-ukraine-isnt-all-about-you/

Putin ‘like Hitler’? How did Prince Charles get it so wrong?:

A more pro-active Russian ruler would have sent troops to Kiev a long time ago. Thus did Czar Alexis when the Poles, Cossacks and Tatars argued for it in 17th century. So also did Czar Peter the Great, when the Swedes occupied it in the 18th century. So did Lenin, when the Germans set up the Protectorate of Ukraine (he called its establishment “the obscene peace”). So did Stalin, when the Germans occupied the Ukraine in 1941.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/putin-like-hitler-how-did-prince-charles-get-it-so-wrong/5383160

How I know that V. V. Putin isn’t Hitler:

Hitler grabbed territory and made war and committed genocide in order to grab territory. Putin has grabbed territory in order to keep what he has. Putin has fought to hold on to South Ossetia, Dagestan and the Russian naval port of Sevastopol because neither he nor anyone else in Russia can see where the continuous slicing away of Russian influence will end. Russia thinks this way in no small part because they were on the receiving end of Hitler’s Drang nach Osten.

Putin may treat gay people as badly as they’re treated in Alabama, and he may be an autocratic White Tsar. He’s no Yeltsin, but he surely isn’t Hitler.

http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/how-i-know-that-v-v-putin-isnt-hitler/


Myth #3 – There are no Nazis in Ukraine. The Maidan coup was a popular, grassroots movement.

Brzezinski Mapped Out the Battle for Ukraine in 1997:

Understanding Brzezinski’s long-term view of Ukraine makes it easier to comprehend why the US has given $5 billion to Ukraine since 1991, and why today it is hyper-concerned about having Ukraine remain in its sphere of influence. It may also help explain why in the past year the US and many of its media outlets have feverishly demonized Vladimir Putin.

Brzezinski: “Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire.”

Brzezinski wrote that US policy should be “unapologetic” in perpetuating “America’s own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer still.”

The everyday life of an opposition deputy is this: constant threats, unofficial ban from the airwaves, targeted persecution. Everyone who calls for peace is immediately branded as an enemy of the people, just as in 1930’s Germany, or in McCarthyite US.

Myth #5 – Joining the EU and accepting IMF loans is Ukraine’s best chance to develop into a free, democratic and prosperous nation.

If you really believe this, well… think Greece!

What is the “European way of life”? For the working class, not just in Greece but across the continent, it means social misery—drastic cuts in jobs, wages, public services and living conditions—to satisfy the demands of the same banks, financial institutions and corporate giants that were responsible for the economic meltdown that erupted in 2008.

Ukraine Can’t Afford the IMF’s Shock Therapy:

Crimean leaders blame Kiev for selling Ukraine off for IMF loans:

…the country’s entire gas pipeline system will be handed over for free in the American company Chevron’s ownership the moment the basic agreement is signed, while the owners of the Mariupol, Zaporizhzhya and Dnipropetrovsk steel mills will be obliged to surrender their 50% stakes to Germany’s Ruhr. The Donbass coal industry will be handed over to Ruhr’s subsidiary in Finland…

Gas prices for municipal companies will have to be increased by 50% and for private will double. Electricity tariffs will be raised by 40%, housing utility tariffs will be raised, too, gasoline excises will go up 60% and transportation tariffs 50%, while state support for childbirth will be cancelled, the free distribution of textbooks will be annulled at schools and the VAT relief will be scrapped in rural regions…

“VAT will be introduced on medications, which will push up prices and bring citizens’ living standards down,” Kovitidi said.

“The planned annulment of the moratorium on the sale of farmland looks appalling. The selloff of Ukraine’s black soil zone, including to foreign countries, may have disastrous economic and social consequences,” she said.

With friends like the IMF and EU, Ukraine doesn’t need enemies:

You can’t destroy an economy in order to save it.

Medicine and Meat Out of Reach Amid Ukrainian Price Shock:

The plight of Zhytomyr’s 270,000 residents shows how bailout-mandated austerity and the strains of an eight-month insurgency are playing out in everyday life.

“Glory to Ukraine?” said Valya, 76, referring to a slogan of the street uprising. “Glory for what? Higher prices? The war? We’re just tolerating the authorities.”

Here is the reality:

– Ukraine is none of our business. It’s very far away and the US has no national interests connected with Ukraine.

– Ukraine is Russia’s business. It borders Russia.

– Ukraine is the victim of a fascist coup. America and Russia agree (and have always agreed) on the topic of fascism: it’s bad.

– Ukraine is not worth risking a military confrontation with Russia (a nuclear power) over. It’s called World War III: it’s a bad idea.

– Ukraine is not worth the blood of even a single American soldier.

– If anything, we should be supporting Russia as an ally against fascism!

Americans should not go abroad to slay dragons they do not understand in the name of spreading democracy.

“Whenever the standard of freedom and independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will be America’s heart, her benedictions and her prayers. But she does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the wellwisher to freedom and independence for all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She well knows that by once enlisting other banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extridition, in all wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom….She might become the dictress of the world but would no longer be ruler of her own spirit… Americans should not go abroad to slay dragons they do not understand in the name of spreading democracy.”
– John Quincy Adams
