    August 24—Ukrainian Soldiers March In Donetsk


    This time, psycho president Poroshenko has kept his word. Some weeks ago, with his usual arrogance, he declared that on Independence Day the soldiers of the armed forces of Kiev would have a parade in Donetsk.
    And here they are! Such nice lines of losers! They walk slowly, hunched over, frightened. One drags his feet, one has his head bandaged. No one looks up.
    They came here hypnotized by the Ukrainian media, which are directly employed by the Verkhovna Rada, to get rid of the Donbass by the Russian invader—by the terrorists. They were ready to give their lives for a United Ukraine.
    Now, the Donetsk citizens spit on them, call them fascists, faggots. The citizens yell, "Kill them!" and "Hang them!" And behind them, three tank trucks spray water on the asphalt to clean up after their passage.
    It hits me that the grandparents and great-grandparents of some of them exulted in '44, when to get spits and insults were the German soldiers.
    These shabby soldiers are among those few Ukrainians to realize how the gang of oligarchs who has illegally seized power in Kiev is mocking them and all of the Ukrainian people.
    Instead, the international press is indignant. As it was indignant for a Russian convoy bringing humanitarian aid to the population of the DPR and LPR.
    The international press was not indignant when the Defense Minister of DPR, Igor Kakidzyanov, was detained, tortured and mocked by the pedophile parliamentary Lyashko—and yet there is a youtube video which has received many thousands of views.
    The international press was not indignant when the president of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov announced the start of a completely unmotivated military operation.
    The international press is not indignant for the ongoing ethnic cleansing in the Donbass towards the Russian-speaking Ukrainians. It is not indignant for the Tochka missiles fired at the civilian homes, nor for the white phosphorus bombs. It is not indignant for the hundreds of thousands of refugees who fled to Russia—by the way, why do they flee there, if Russia is the aggressor? Not indignant for the opposition MPs attacked and threatened.
    It is not indignant for the journalists thrown out of parliament, nor for those banned from the country with a pretext, nor for those kidnapped. It's not indignant even for the killed journalists.
    The international press is indignant on command. It does not inform its audience, does not tell the real facts. The international press is used to building consensus for the masters. Which are the same who profit from this war—mostly funded with Europeans and Americans taxpayers' money.
    Which are the same whose hands shook Poroshenko's chocolate and blood dirtied hands.
    Today, the puppet president in Kiev reiterated that he wants peace and that therefore over $3 billion will be spent to re-equip and modernize the army in 2015-2017.
    What better choice for a bankrupt country, with unemployment rate rising, lacking a market for its products, with national currency to a record low?
    Poroshenko also added that the armored vehicles that paraded in the city center (the army cleaned up the last of the Maidan Revolution demonstrators for the occasion) will immediately proceed to the conflict zone.
    Some sample is already here in Donetsk indeed.
    On Lenin Square, the Ukrainian Army's combat hardware destroyed by DPR Army is hauled onto and put on display. Since morning, thousands of city dwellers have gathered around the fire-blackened wreckages, which comprise a multiple launch rocket system, one howitzer, some ACVs, a military truck.
    One onlooker grabbed a Ukrainian flag from the wreckage of a tank and threw it to the ground. Several others stomped on it, wiping their feet and spitting.
    The conditions of this flag are determined by the number of feet trampling on it. Much like Ukraine, which today celebrates the 23rd Anniversary of Independence, but it depends on the money that the IMF will decide to lend. It depends on the plans the owners overseas have in mind. Actually, it depends on the ridiculous 500 million euro (about $660 million) of credit guarantee that Merkel has stretched as an act of charity. Above all, it depends on Russia for energy supplies. It also depends on Russia for the purchase of spare parts for its artillery, so much in need of maintenance.
    Come on, all together: United Ukraine!


    PS: at the end of the ceremony the flag was torn.
