Lavrov – Kiev’s Illegal Use of Force Damages Talks



Kiev’s illegal use of force damages talks: Russia

Samantha Power -  a very poor choice for UN Ambassador

Samantha Power – a very poor choice for UN Ambassador

[ Editors Note:  American foreign policy continues as hypocrisy on display. Everything it conspired to do in supporting the Kiev coup which started this whole mess, they consider as not even a subject for discussion.

We are now accusing the Russians of doing something similar in East Ukraine, and they are the devil incarnate for doing so. I have a bit of trouble swallowing that.

Our UN Ambassador Samantha Power had a "made for TV” opportunity to support US charges that Russian Intel and Special Operations troops have been organizing and coordinating the entire East Ukraine protests, but she did not put one shred of proof on the table Sunday night…just continuing the litany of charges.

BTW, this is the same Samantha who resigned from Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008 over refering to Hillary Clinton as a monster. Imagine that! She’s a bit high strung, an unusal talent for a high diplomatic post.

On the contrary, Veterans Today has already released evidence of the US running these kinds of operations, and also false flag ones, right out of the US Embassy in Kiev. The State Dept. never even responded to these charges, which included the actual emails and photographs showing which old planes were to be blown up as part of a faked Russian attack.

Getting caught with their pants down does not seem to bother our Congress either. They go into their usual mode of "the public won’t be able to remember it three days from now anyway so it is not a problem.” We see the likes of McCain, Ted Cruz and others looking to get into any war they can, simply to get the news headlines.

We deserve better, and if we want it we might be looking at the model for change in East Ukraine now. We have our own "coup problems” still from the Bush years in Congress where that institution has become a base of operations for gangsters galore… Jim W. Dean ]

The Russian Foreign Minister has warned the acting government in Kiev of using “criminal force” against pro-Moscow protesters in Ukraine.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday said the move would undermine Kiev’s attempts at dialogue with pro-Russian protesters in the east of Ukraine.

“One cannot issue invitations to talks while at the same time issuing criminal orders for the use of armed force against the people there,” he said.

Lavrov also highlighted the four-party talks planned in Geneva between Russia, the United States, the European Union and Ukraine.

“You can’t send in tanks and at the same time hold talks, and the use of force would sabotage the opportunity offered by the four-party negotiations in Geneva,” Lavrov said.

The Russian Minister said Moscow welcomes signs that the government in Kiev is preparing for dialogue, calling it a step in the right direction.

“In principle we are prepared for this meeting and we think its format will be rather useful for telling our American partners and partners in the European Union directly, that those whom they have brought to power should be persuaded to respect their own people and to start a genuine, not cosmetic or closed-door and covert constitutional reform, with all the regions equally represented and with all major political forces involved in disarming illegal formations and de-escalating the situation,” Lavrov said.

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s acting President Oleksandr Turchynov said during a parliamentary meeting on Tuesday that Russia is accused of having “brutal plans to destabilize the southeast of his country.”

“Russia had and continues to have brutal plans…They want to set fire not only to the Donetsk region but to the entire south and east — from Kharkiv to the Odessa region,” Turchynov said.

The eastern cities in Ukraine are now bracing for military action due to Kiev’s threats of launching an “anti-terrorism operation” to end the ongoing protests.

Pro-Russian rallies gained momentum in Ukraine after Crimea declared independence from the former Soviet state and formally applied to become part of the Russian Federation following a referendum on March 16, in which nearly 97 percent of the participants voted for reunion with Russia, with a turnout of more than 83 percent.

    Turchinov – bloody fascist American puppet.
    America has shed the blood of the people.

    U.S. curse Millions of people from all over the world!!


    Any attempt by force to deprive peoples of their right to free choice of their political future , attempts by Kiev junta and its European masters to determine in advance for the people of the metes and bounds of this choice – doomed to a crushing defeat . Any attempt to build the EU for the people of Donbass political stall in which he , according to European officials , obliged to remain fruitless , and be swept away by the people. Lost touch with the reality of European officials to face only the growth of popular protest and Donbass Novorossia radicalization of protest , and gain self-defense forces.

    Putin needs to press the GO button, NOW.
    Donetsk region needs to be kept viable, or Russia is never going to be paid for its gas. The Nazi junta in Kiev will destroy the joint they’re running race-based repression and violence against their whole catalogue of enemies Jews, Orthodox Christians, blacks, Russians, Poles, and – wait for it – Hungarians! They attacked and beat up Hungarian student tourists, and defaced a memorial to Hungarian WW II victories! Can you credit it?
    Russia should drive into Ukraine – Right Now! – and kick the Nazis in the teeth while the lame duck Droner languishes, so the next CIC will arrive to a Finlandised and functioning Ukraine.
    Didn’t you Yanks fight a war against Nazis? My mob were at your elbow. Carve these fascist scum out of Washington if it takes flamethrowers – it worked on Bataan…

    One of these days, Russia is going to have to drop the patronizing “partner” rhetoric and accept the fact that the “U.S. government” is a criminal enterprise, run by bloodthirsty, criminally insane madmen bent on world rule at any cost.

    Their choice is a simple one either cede their sovereignty and put Jewish oligarchs in charge, or start fighting back.

    How many ways are there to say crooked? I wonder. Is this just what being American means? It may since many who immigrated here were running from some crime in Europe. Then there were the religious fanatics. Never a nation with a particularly high ethical standard. Some of our greatest presidents have been exceptional liars. So crooked it is. Just make things up as you go along. An if you come to an opportunity for a war, go for it.

    Please I need help
    The only way to stop the crime which our (US) government is committing is to apply to the people around the world. I’m contemplating submitting a petition on demanding the government of the US to stop interfering with situation in Ukraine and withdraw all CIA operations over there. We don’t need another war.
    My issue is my English. This is the reason I need help. We can design this petition on this site or via emails.
    Thank you

    If the regime in Kiev indeed resorts to violence there is only one thing Putin can do, and that is move in his army and annex the eastern half of the country. If he lets Kiev kill too many Russians he will lose his support at home and lose his psychological lead over the West.

    In doing so he’ll create “facts on the ground” that NATO et al. will not be able to deal with.

    • Oleg  April 15, 2014 at 1:40 pm

      This exactly what US wants – to force Russia to move into Ukraine and use it as the reason for massive sanctions, etc. Director of CIA recently was in Ukraine and was giving directives to use not just Ukrainian armed forces but Graystone mercenaries as well. The head of Ukraine state security agency is the agent of CIA. It was in Russian news yesterday and it was coming from former Ukrainian counter-espionage director. US is so desperate to provoke Russians that they acted openly without any shame.
      The tragedy is that if there would be military actions against population (they brought heavy artillery) the Russia either has to protect these people despite all political troubles or loose the face. In any case the US government will be happy.

    Jim, this isn’t related to your story, but it looks like Veteransatoday may be vulnerable to Heartbleed.

    Samantha Power is a traitor to her own country, she is another Israeli stooge

    Former White House official Samantha Power, President Obama’s nominee for ambassador to the United Nations, vowed to support Israel and work to get the country a “nonpermanent seat” on the UN Security Council during her Senate confirmation hearing, The Daily Beast reports.

    “The United States has no greater friend in the world than the state of Israel,” Power told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Wednesday. “We share security interests, we share core values, and we have a special relationship with Israel.”

    Brian Israel did 911 being friends with Israel suggests Americans are masochists. Are special relationship with Israel is analogous to a deranged abusive husband and a wife begging for more abuse. Sigh.

    Meanwhile, German Bild started a petition in order to shape public opinion

    We no longer want Russian tanks at the Brandenburg Gate!

    Wir wollen keine Russen-Panzer mehr am Brandenburger Tor!

      Bild, the “newspaper” that shuts comments on articles down when the majority of the commentators does not agree with the transatlantic poodles’ opinion?

      Well, I am not surprised.

      Their slogan “Bild Dir eine Meinung” should be “Mein Dir eine Bildung”.

      (For our ‘merican friends Bild is comparable to USA today, probably even worse. Their journalistic quality is lower than the Mariana Trench.)
