What we are told in the American mainlining press (propaganda of lies their heroin, the new “opiate of the people”) is so far from the truth about what is happening in the Ukraine, if we are even told the country exists right now anyway. Putin is being baited by the Ukrainian government as a proxy for America and Nato and with the continued atrocities against those who would wish to succeed carried out by the Ukrainian army and independent right-wing ultra-nationalists under their control, he is likely going to have to act. America, of course will be outraged and the cries of the neocons and the paid supporters of the MIC will seek retribution–all with full knowledge that they are being willfully deceitful.
The document below was published by LifeNews as a true copy of a letter prepared by the acting Ukrainian Minister of Defence, Colonel General Mikhail Koval, who addressed it to the President of Ukraine, Pyotr Poroshenko. Unless I receive a specific request—and due to lack of time and volume of work—I am not going to apply my legal experience dealing with refugees (in Egypt and in Canada) to expound on the enormous and obvious legal failings of this proposed policy.
Suffice to say, this newest pearl of the Ukrainian national-fascist, Nazi government flies directly in the face of the very foundations of the 1951 Refugee Convention and its 1967 Protocol, as well as applicable customary international law. If there is sufficient interest, I may ask Barbara Harrell-Bond, a recipient of the Order of the British Empire and a world-renowned expert in the field (and my kind and dear mentor) to provide a short commentary on the subject, if she is so inclined. In the meantime, a few brief points would be useful here:
Tensions between Kyiv and Moscow rose sharply Tuesday, with a Ukrainian general warning of an imminent Russian military attack and the country’s security chief saying he had ‘absolute proof’ Russia was involved in the downing of a Ukrainian military transport plane.
‘Ukraine, as never before, is on the threshold of large-scale aggression by our northern neighbor,’ Gen. Mykhaylo Koval, deputy secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, told Ukraine’s ICTV channel.
Meanwhile, the head of Ukraine’s security service, the SBU, says his agency has ‘absolute proof’ Russia was involved in Monday’s downing of a Ukrainian military transport plane in eastern Ukraine.
Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said Tuesday that the evidence Russia was involved in shooting down the AN-26 transport plane over the Luhansk region would be presented to President Petro Poroshenko and made public.
On Monday, pro-Russian separatists claimed responsibility for shooting down the plane and said four crew members had been taken prisoner.
However, the Defense Ministry said Monday the plane was flying too high to have been hit by conventional surface-to-air missiles.
‘The plane was struck by another, more powerful projectile that was probably launched from the territory of the Russian Federation,’ Defense Minister Valeriy Heletey was quoted as telling President Poroshenko on the presidential website.
