Skip to comments.Donetsk Protests Live Thread (About to be Stormed?)
Posted on 04/09/2014 12:45:26 PM PDT by tcrlaf
Twitter Hashtag #Donetsk has gotten busy in the last hour, especially after this Tweet from a UK blogger stating that the media was gathering, on rumor that the storming of the Donetsk Barricades was imminent.
UStream live feed from the Donetsk Barricades. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/artem77?utm_campaign=t.co&utm_source=ustre.am%2F1b876&utm_medium=social&utm_content=20140409121554 Has been up for a while, but down the last 5 minutes.
Several recent tweets about "Blackwater mercenaries being seen around/in Donetsk.
Euromaidan PR tweets: "Rossiya 24 TV channel illegally broadcast by Donetsk administration captured by separatists."
Acting President Turchynov orders to take Donetsk RSA under state security
Numerous Twitter reports and Videos of Ukrainian troops, including heavy artillery and tanks, escorted by police, moving near Donetsk, at last report about 10k outside of the city. Local Civilians are impeding them by walking in the way, or having cars 'breakdown" on the roads.
Edge of cliff..?
Feels scary, got a bad feeling.
If it ends with bloodshed, I don’t imagine Russia taking it well.
But Kiev is in no mood to listen to reason.
Kiev is exactly where the Russians will head if they’re serious about dealing with the Ukrainian radicals.
I think this is exactly what Putin is hoping for. He has spent the past several weeks doing everything possible to foment disturbances in Eastern Ukraine. Not so easy when the general sentiment does not favor a Russian annexation.
Video of crowd gathering to slow a Ukrainian tank column near Donetsk.
I care far more about what is happening in Nevada.
What reason? A group of armed terrorists holding large city hostage and making demands does not need reasons. It needs swift and decisive annihilation.
What would we do if ethnic language speakers suddenly took over government buildings and demanded a referendum to join a foreign country? (San Diego? Los Angeles, Miami, El Paso?)
There is no reasoning with the psychotic genocidal mass-murderer KGB Putin.
“A group of armed terrorists holding large city hostage and making demands does not need reasons. It needs swift and decisive annihilation.”
You mean, like the Maidan?
Can’t be true. Jay Carney/WH have denied any involvement from Greystone, etc.
Remember, if you like your doctor you can keep him.
If you are a Ukrainian and don’t like the Neo-Nazi Svoboda having 1/4 of the interim gov’t seats then you don’t have to keep them. They can trust this.
Remember when the WH said that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was “largely secular”?
Remember McCain’s serious love for the KLA, then the pics of him with radical Syrian rebels, and now Svoboda leaders?
“What would we do if ethnic language speakers suddenly took over government buildings and demanded a referendum to join a foreign country?”
Depends, are we in an open Civil War, with an unelected government in power by coup?
How would the tribes at Wounded Knee feel about that?
Too many variables to make a fair comparison.
The “Foreign Mercenaries” look Slavic to me. They’re probably just Ukrainians and therefore not foreign at all.
Lessay Russian mercs helped “Forces of Atzlan” take over San Diego for Mexico:
How would WE feel..?
Lessay they were following the orders of a gay, muzzie Russian leader who HATES God and ordinary Russians:
What would we say...?
Everyone in that part of Ukraine speaks Russian. That is not the delineating factor. Actual ethnic Russians comprise 10% of that of the population in that area. Putin is doing everything possible to provoke a violent response to the takeover of the government buildings by his rent-a-mobs. He needs bloodshed to justify an invasion into Ukraine.
