Murder in Ukraine


The Ukrainian government for 25 years and more has long been hobbled by deep-rooted  internal corruption and  governmental mismanagement.  With Ukraine’s economy  undeniably collapsing, the officials  desperately are looking for diversions, someone to blame.


A Ukrainian journalist Oles Buzina, known for his pro-Russian views was shot dead in Kiev, a day after the killing of  Oleg Kalashnikov who was also  a political supporter of ousted Moscow-backed President Viktor Yanukovych, with these murders driving up negative tension between Moscow and Kiev . Oles  Buzina, 45, wrote pro-Russian opinion pieces for Ukraine’s Sevodnya daily, owned by Ukraine’s  businessman Rinat Akhmetov.


The killing of Oles Buzina, who expressed strong pro-Russian views in a daily newspaper, and the killing of ex-parliamentary deputy Oleg Kalashnikov were the latest in a spate of mysterious deaths among the past allies of  Ex-President   Yanukovych, who  himself  had  fled to Moscow last year and  the third death this week of a prominent critic of Ukraine’s Western-backed government.. .  Buzyna was driven out by supporters of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, who was elected in May to succeed the ousted Kremlin ally, Yanukovich.


Oleg Kalashnikov an ally of Ex-President Yanukovych was Found Shot Dead   inside a multi-storey block as he went up to his eighth-floor apartment. Oleg Kalashnikov a former member of parliament and the pro-Russian Party of Regions, is the latest ally of ousted Ukrainian   President government to have also died in suspicious circumstances.  Mr Kalashnikov was a member of messianic Covance’s pro Russian Party of regions  and has been in constant antenatal protests in support of  keeping the former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych’s and both of these recent victims played a part in the “Anti-Maidan” movement, which opposed pro-Western protests that ousted Yanukovych in February 2014


Another journalist from Ukraine’s strife-torn Donetsk region, Sergei Sukhobok, was found dead Monday in Kiev, reportedly killed in a fight with neighbors in the Ukrainian capital. A suspect in that killing was arrested Thursday, as  Sukhobok was “known for his opposition to the current Ukrainian leadership.”


Now at least six former government officials from the time of President Viktor Yanukovych, have also recently died . There has been  a recent spate of deaths among people linked to the political machine of former President Viktor Yanukovych .

In the last three months, at least 10 people who served in his government or in his Party of Regions (POR), or had connections to people who were, have met premature ends either by being murdered or reportedly committing suicide. In January, Mykola Serhiyenko, the former deputy chief of Ukraine’s national railways, was found shot dead in his Kiev home, with the gun lying beside him. Then came a string of others, inluding Olexiy Kolesnyk, the former governor of the Kharkiv region, who was found hanged, and Mykhailo Chechetov, who jumped from his 17th-floor apartment in the capital.  .

1. Oleh Kalashnikov, MP of Party of Regions (POR), gunshot, presumed murder

2. Olexiy Kolesnyk, former governor of Kharkiv region, hanged

3. Stanislav Melnyk, gunshot, possible suicide, POR member

4. Serhiy Valter, former mayor of Melitopol, hanged

5. Olexandr Bordiuh, deputy chief of Melitopol police, found dead, “hypertension”

6. Olexander Peklushenko, former governor of Zaporizhia region, gunshot

7. Mykhailo Chechetov, former POR deputy chairman, jumped to death

8. Serhiy Melnychuk, former Odesa prosecutor, pushed/fell/jumped to death

9. Mykola Serhiyenko, former first deputy chief of Ukrainian railroads, gunshot

10. Oles Buzyna, a very provocative pro-Russian journalist and writer, gunshot


   And  the sheer number of fatalities in such a short period of time, as well as the many unexplained details, such as why so many appear to be suicides, have led many Russia to see some sort of link.   Russia  blames   the Kiev leadership and its Western backers for deaths of  these pro-Russia activists.   


Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova was quoted by state-run media in Moscow as saying she feared the spate of deaths this week was “only the beginning of political purges in Ukraine.” The deaths in Kiev this week are “scary because none of the leaders in the EU will take notice that, day after day, politicians are being killed in Ukraine,” said Zakharova also.  Mykola Azarov, prime minister in the Yanukovich government, said on his Facebook page that “the Kiev regime has committed yet another shameful crime.


In Moscow, Putin, during a televised call-in show on Thursday, said Buzina’s and Kalashnikov’s deaths and other such incidents were politically motivated, and President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia said Ukraine’s government was allowing a campaign of political violence against supporters of the previous government  and  he accused Kiev of failing to bring anyone to justice. Since not one of the 6 deaths were  honestly investigated, the police are known to be corrupt in Ukraine still too.


“We are facing a whole series of such [political] killings in Ukraine,” Putin  said, contrasting the killings in Ukraine with the murder of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov in Moscow in March where, he said, the killers had been arrested.


“In Ukraine which claims to be a democratic state and has aspirations towards democratic Europe there has been nothing similar. Where are the killers of these people? Where are the people who carried them out and those who ordered them? They aren’t there. In Europe and North America they prefer not to notice this,” Putin said. And the two killings took place almost exactly when Putin was holding his meet-the-people phone-in “arouses great suspicion.  He also accused Ukraine of forming an economic blockade around rebel-held areas. “We see a total blockade of Donbas. One can say that the current Ukrainian authorities are cutting off Donbas by their own hand. That is the problem and tragedy,”   “


The West must respect Russia’s interests if it wants to normalize diplomatic relations, the Russian president  Putin also said.  “[The US] doesn’t need allies, they only need vassals.” He said Russia would never accept that role and urged the West to take Russian interests into account.  Russia-West ties have plummeted to post-Cold War lows amid the Ukrainian crisis.  Putin said that “it’s useless and senseless to put pressure on Russia using those means [sanctions]”. Putin, in turn, has repeatedly said that the United States seeks to thwart Russia’s legitimate interests abroad and destabilize the political situation inside the country. President Putin considers EU Europe, Canada, Australia,  a prisoner of American, Obama’s  false foreign policy  of keeping Germany down and Russia out .  It’s fact  that one of the central motivations for Russia’s, Moscow sudden tilt eastwards, Iran, India,  China’s warm embrace is the realization that a rapprochement with West, Europe is impossible cause Putin will not go along with their scenarios. 


Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu  blamed the United States and its allies for the conflict in Ukraine, saying their drive to bring Kiev closer to the West was a threat to Moscow and he admitted that it had forced it to react.   He reiterated that the West orchestrates “colour revolutions” to unseat rulers it dislikes. “Ukraine is the biggest tragedy in the chain of colour revolutions. The United States and its allies have crossed all possible lines in their drive bring Kiev into their orbit. He dismissed Western criticism that Russia was forcibly remaking European borders, pointing to Western military involvement in Serbia, Iraq and Libya. “Those vehement critics of Russian actions in Crimea surely have no moral right to accuse us of violating international law,” he also said . Shoigu said Moscow saw the development of the U.S.-led anti-missile shield in Europe as a threat to its strategic nuclear deterrent capability, and was taking measures to counteract it.


Russia says Canada’s decision to join military training in Ukraine ‘deplorable’.  The  Canadians — along with U.S. and British forces — will train Ukrainian soldiers and national guard troops.  Harper government’s decision to join a U.S.-led military training mission Ukraine has drawn a sharp rebuke from Russia. Canada is sending at least 200 members of the Canadian Forces to take part in a two-year deployment to improve the combat skills of troops in Ukraine.  In a statement, the Russian Embassy in Ottawa calls that “counterproductive and deplorable.” It says the move does nothing to resolve the fracturing of Ukraine and that Canada should concentrate on diplomacy and political dialogue with the breakaway eastern regions of the country.  The Russians also accuse Canada and the West of assisting in the military buildup and playing into the hands of the “party of war” in Kyiv.


 Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, formally announced his presidential campaign on Tuesday had called U.S. sanctions against Russia for its incursion into Ukraine “a grave mistake,” and warned it could harm the economy at home. “I don’t think we have any business there,” he said.   He also said the Ukrainian unrest was a coup orchestrated by NATO and the European Union, and not an uprising of Ukrainian citizens standing up to Russia’s influence in their country.


Moscow also now next expects nothing from Ukraine, Kiev authorities except treating it as equitable partner The president said Russia does not expect anything from the Kiev authorities except for getting the treatment that the Ukrainians would give to any equitable partner in all areas.  “As for now, we don’t want anything from the Kiev authorities except for getting a treatment from them they would give to all the equitable partners in all the areas of collaboration,” Putin said. Moscow puts emphasis on the observance of legitimate rights and interests of the ethnic Russians living in Ukraine, as well as the rights of the people who consider themselves to be Russian regardless of what is said in their passports, who name Russian as their native tongue, and who feel unbreakable bonds with Russia, Putin said.


No war between Russian and Ukraine is possible,  War with Ukraine impossible Russian President Vladimir Putin said during his annual question and answer session officially known as Direct Line with Vladimir Putin.  The Russian president also   again stressed that no Russian troops are involved in the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine. “Are there Russian troops in Ukraine? I will put it straight: there are no Russian troops in Ukraine,” Putin said in response to a question posed . Putin said that the chief of staff of the Ukrainian army had put it the best way at a meeting with his foreign colleagues. “We are not fighting against the Russian army,” the chief of staff said directly and publicly.“What else can be added to his words?” Putin asked. 


Russia is under attack by the West on all fronts—economic, ideological, Middle Eastern, European—and must respond accordingly. The claim that the West is at war with Russia  may not be news to many in the West, American,  but it is  a fact in  the minds of many ordinary Russians. The prospect of a war with the West is now a big issue  for  Russia’s public opinion. Some 81% of the population sees America as a threat, the highest proportion since the Soviet Union fell apart.   Sergei Naryshkin, Speaker of the Russian parliament, blamed America for “unleashing a military-political adventure” in Ukraine and stalling its peaceful resolution. “America needs the continuing bloodshed in the Donbas as a means of achieving something important for itself,” he wrote. The sanctions against Russia and the information hysteria in the Western media are a cover for America’s economic “gangsterism”, he added.  The war in eastern Ukraine and the economic crisis have turned the euphoria associated with Crimea into a  defensive patriotism   pushing Mr Putin’s approval ratings up to nearly 90%.   The  aggressor image of  Russia  constructed by the America’s propaganda machines bears such a close resemblance to the reality of America and that is why it is so frightening to many world wide too..


As far as the  Russian economy the Russian currency fell about 40 percent against the U.S. dollar last year, raising the cost of travel expenses for Russians. The number of Russians traveling to Europe dropped 40 percent in 2014,   Demand for travel to Turkey and Egypt remained steady.After falling even further in January, the ruble has since rallied, strengthening around 40 percent against the dollar since the start of February. But even after the rebound, the ruble is still one-third weaker against the dollar than at the beginning of last year .        

The liars with no proof even say that Boris Nemtsov’s support for Western sanctions against Russia possible assassination motive..  They lie and say Putin has canser, Russia will go into Banruptcy, putin will be kicked out of office too.. A quick review by most anyone will show that  the western news media is clearly distorting, lying, is slanderous, has not facts, proofs too often to support their false claims against Putin, Russians as well.. they are a mockery of honesty, justice , professionalism as well, as it is immoral, it is ILLEGAL to publish memes which portray any real people in a way that does not reflect their  true “personality” and that harm the honour, dignity and reputation  of any and  all persons. But yet the persist with it falsely too.  Some have falsely   including Hillary Clinton   likened the Russian leader’s political tactics and power to Adolf Hitler’s in the years leading up to the Second World War.   “Behave or else,”  and Vladimir Putin continues to  remind others there is an “else.”  Some persons are falsely envious, jealous that Putin the Iron Man of Russia  rather arouses more fascination around the world, because his actions speak a language of defiance  of the perverse  West, lifting him to levels of  nation wide popularity that other leaders, Even Obama,  can only envy.  The Russian President is significant in any year, because no one in the world has amassed greater political authority in a country so important to international politics and the global economy. In response his false enemies say that  Putin has his finger tip on a nuclear button as the only thing according to the liars is Putin he cares about today is staying in power, and staying in power for him means he must demonstrate himself as the saviour of Russia.  Note the recent nuclear threats by Putin have set a benchmark for hostility in the conflict Obama, Nato, the West have ignited with Russia.  Mr. Putin’s acts are  rooted in intense nationalism.  Mr. Putin has  been sending military aircraft unannounced into international airspace over Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland and the North Sea as warning  for fools not  to go   where they should not go to. . Putin’s, Russia’s   behavior is a serious threat to the war mongerers,  power hungry leaders of  NATO.  How long can he Putin  remain aloft?   Don’t bet against him. 


The news media should stay with reporting the news, facts and not rather too often  trying to brain wash others, trying to enforce their hidden or unhidden agendas, or presenting their too often false, distorting, sensationalized presentations..  If any internet News media or Internet site goes overboard with their censorship too they can be sure the reader, users, the people will go elsewhere en masse and their site will suffer as a result..  These days people have million of choices where to go on the net these days.. and can post what they want there too.. These days it is not just the cops, crooks, Jews, Blacks. Muslims, Politicians, governments, Lieberals, or whoever that only has the right to speak and to be heard.. we all still do and anywhere too.
