Western sanctions against Ukrainian top bandits
State Banditism in Ukraine. It all started in Donbass in the 90-ies. Killing not only the competitors, common witnesses, but also the state officials (covered by the same procurator, then not yet procurator-general of Ukraine). The people in Ukraine hoped it would not spread outside Donbass but it did. Now that the tumor of the bandit system is spread, little can be done if anything. Is EU similarly confident it will not spread outside Ukraine? With the Gremlin in the Kremlin masterminding the process and not caring a fig about his own people, not to mention the “damn” Ukrainians. Russian “international” troops would aid the UA bandits the next day after the Olympiad. Why not the same day? Because of the distance. The gremlin will demonstrate how to implement the famine (Holodomor-2) in Ukraine, this time in his “proper” way. Actually, if EU goes on doubting his James Bondian image and not asking for his royal permission for any sanctions, then the Russian tanks will be in Brussels with the same ease as in Kyiv, and the Ukrainian high bandits will teach the citizens of Bruxelles their “proper” democracy, intimidation, kidnapping and tortures inclusive? Dear EU delegates, please, decide something, your time is till the end of the Olympiad maximum, otherwise it may become too late.
Mass media. It’s useless to discuss Putin’s mass media when Herr Dmitri Kisselioff on Russian TV names over million of peaceful Ukrainian protesters (in November) i.e., the crow stretching to the horizon, A HANDFUL OF STINKY EXTREMISTS (documented). Naturally, his opponents should be de-humanized (call them “beasts” in order to intimidate & kidnap with perfect impunity). What was the frost in Kyiv the last weekend? Lower than -25oC (-15oF), and people still protesting outdoors!
The buildings occupied by the protesters are not all administrative. Ukrainian House, from the roof of which the snipers were killing people, has nothing to do with the administration. The House of trade unions is the unions’ property, not admin. The municipal administration building is the property of the city community, not the government. When the protesters occupied the Justice Ministry, it was because the fascists laws (cancelled later) were being generates in that building. And so on.
Some departments of FSB (Russian secret service) sit in full force in Ukraine now. Russian death squadron is operating in Ukraine after Chechnya training their raw rookies on the unarmed protesters, giving a hand to multiple local thugs under the police “umbrella”. The Gremlin from the Kremlin is striving for war, the UA gremlin is merely his puppet.
