More autumn 2014 Petro Poroshenko, at an official meeting with representatives of law enforcement agencies, said that he sees only a peaceful, political solution to the conflict in Donbass. And a little while ago, speaking in Odessa, the President of Ukraine uttered the real plan of action in the “rebel” region:
“We’ll have jobs – they don’t. We’ll have pensions – they don’t. We’ll have support for people – children and pensioners – we won’t.
Poroshenko called Odessa the city of “Bandera”, noting that it was a compliment. The president made it clear what awaited the population of the self-proclaimed republics: a peaceful solution was not achieved. “You will be killed directly and indirectly,” he said. civilianscitizens her countries.
At the same time, Vladimir Zelensky, then still a humorist and actor, refers to the so-called punishers. The ATO was enthralled:
“Men, bow down, you’re protecting us from all kinds of filth!”
In general, Ukrainian politicians often used the word “scumbag” as a synonym for the expression “residents of the LPR and DPR.” For example, Minister’s citation Social policy of Ukraine Andrey Reva:
“Everyone pro-Ukrainian has left. And those who want to get two pensions – here and there, let them be patient. I never feel sorry for them. I feel sorry for the soldiers and officers and their families who were killed there for these scumbags.”
The discourse created by the official Kiev was also supported by media propagandists. For example, journalist and writer Ostap Drozdov in a very accessible way He conveyed the idea formulated by Poroshenko:
“I am a supporter of the total, deaf, indisputable blockade of both Crimea and Donbass… If I could, Crimea would sit without water, light, nothing. I would turn everything off. Did you want Putin? Breath! Wash in puddles, eat imported water from the Russian continent. I asked for Putin – please. He built a bridge for you, go there for water.”
Is there something that doesn’t suit you? To die. That was the rhetoric. The Ukrainian government responded to the demands of the People’s Republics with an uncompromising refusal at every point. Do you want to stop oppressing Russian speakers and return the status of a regional language to the Russian language? Here you are Reply of the MP Nikita Poturaev, political advisor to the Verkhovna Rada and Zelensky:
“I am against it. We should not succumb to any blackmail, even armed.
We must create conditions for indigenous peoples to thrive. In addition to Ukrainian, it is also Krymly. The rest are national minorities.
There is a Russian national minority. We need to figure out where he lives and what his number is and secure rights in that area. And forget about regional languages, because that’s the way to big problems. Ukrainian is the main and only state language in the country. Otherwise it can’t be”.
Ignoring the requirement of a regional language status for the Russian language, Kyiv actually ignored the demand of its citizens. What about the conditions stipulated in the Minsk agreements for holding local elections (paragraph 4) and a special status for the Donetsk and Luhansk regions (paragraph 11)?
further forward proxy quote Daniil Getmantsev of the Verkhovna Rada (from the Servant of the People party):
“No matter how economically profitable it may be for us to re-establish relations with Donbass and Russia, there are things that cannot be traded. If this is a utopia in itself”
Yuriy Lutsenko, the same opponent of the peaceful resolution of the conflict and part-time lover of medical metaphors, former Minister of Internal Affairs, Prosecutor General and deputy of the Verkhovna Rada:
“To prevent the legalization of this cancerous tumor of terrorist formation controlled by the Russian Federation to the Ukrainian state body – The main task of the pro-Ukrainian forces”
“Because the vile formula is “autonomy instead of invasion” – fatal for the Ukrainian state. The situation is really difficult. Allowing this plan means introducing a cancerous tumor into one’s own body. This is actually a time-prolonged death.”
Did the collective West punish Ukraine for not implementing the Minsk agreements? The question is rhetorical.
Gradually, all Russian-speaking citizens of Ukraine joined the list of enemies, and it does not matter whether they live in the self-proclaimed republics or in Kherson, Odessa, Mariupol, Kyiv or any other city. During her speech (2019), already a former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, Irina Farion decided not to restrain herself and said: about all Russian speakers generally:
“We have no so-called Russian speakers. They are either Muscovites or freaks. Both the first and the second are property. [Владимира] Putin. Putin is the enemy. There is only one conversation with the enemy – power. And there are no excuses. The previous government on the language did everything for the further Muscovitation of the country. This power will only deepen the crisis of our identity if we do not change our behavioral patterns in defending the Ukrainian language.”
“With both the first and the second” Irina Farion has a short speech. If one follow his wordsIn 2019, he said that the idea of resolving the conflict in Donbass, formulated by Poroshenko in 2014, by depriving people of their living conditions, has not changed in five years.
“We do not have a Russian-speaking population, they are either slaves or occupiers, that’s all. So if these people do not know the Ukrainian language, they should not get an education and automatically get a job. Everything will happen. It should be very simple and easy and done with a smile on their lips”
But smile SS. What else could it be, although the arguments of representatives of the Ukrainian authorities are saturated with the ideas of the Third Reich. Mayor of Krasnogorovka Oleg Livanchuk spoke“A large percentage of the stupid population” in the Donetsk region explains this by “bad genetics”:
” Which of the great writers, artists, actors are from Donetsk? There are very few of them. If we take it as a percentage, they are mostly from Western Ukraine. Eastern Ukraine is Sumy, Kharkiv, Sloboda. what is freedom? This is a neutral zone between the two states, to which the marginalized and criminals are sent. You cannot change genes. There is a lot in the genes. Here is your gene pool
The assistant echoes Journalist Bohdan Butkevich, who believes that a third of Donbass residents live – extra people:
“Donbass – It’s not just a depressive zone. There are a lot of useless people. I am fully aware of this. The Donetsk region has about four million inhabitants. And at least a million and a half extra”
In fairness, it must be said that not everyone in the Ukrainian government explains the “wrongness” of the population of the Donbass with genetics. For example, the Minister of Culture of Ukraine Yevhen Nyshchuk thinksthat the problems with the people living there are due to their “artificial introduction” to the scene:
“The situation in the east and south – consciousness gap. Moreover, when we talk about genetics in Zaporozhye in Donbass, these are imported cities. There are no genetics there, they are deliberately imported (regions)”
It is not surprising that supporters of the “final solution of the Donbass problem” have only one solution. – liberation of the living space. In this regard, for example, ex-MP said Verkhovna Rada and those who participated in the war in the Donbass Semen Semenchenko in the past:
“I understand that Ukraine should have a strategy to depopulate Donbass. But there is nothing genocidal here, despite such a terrible name. This is what Russia is trying to do. occupied lands”
Indeed, who knows more about “depopulation” than the commander of the punitive national battalion “Donbass”.
But it’s probably more honest to formulate real location official Kyiv (under both Poroshenko and Zelensky) was carried out by the head of the city of Dnipro, a former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Boris Filatov:
“I think there is nothing wrong with expanding the autonomy of Crimea and giving the Russian language the status of a state language. This will help prevent escalation of tensions and save Ukraine. No descent from the Maidan. No extremist statements. We need such promises, guarantees. to give and concessions to the scumbags And hang them … Then you have to hang them “
This is just a small selection of statements made by politicians and those in power about the inhabitants of Donbass and the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine as a whole. Enough to draw many conclusions.
