Kiev Demands Russia Pay $350 Billion for Destruction Its Own Aggression Caused in Donbass


By Stephen Lendman

(RINF) – US-installed Kiev fascist putschists find new ways to elevate chutzpah to a higher level.

In April 2014, they launched premeditated US proxy naked aggression against their own people in Donbass for wanting democratic rights everyone deserves.

Mass slaughter and destruction followed. Civilians by far suffered most.

Three agreements to end conflict failed – Minsk II the latest in February.

Low-level fighting continues ahead of US/Kiev plans to escalate it full-blown.

Hundreds of US combat troops and special forces are training Kiev’s Nazi-infested National Guard and likeminded battalions for renewed all-out war – at Obama’s discretion.

He has no intention of ending hostilities until Donbass is entirely destroyed – many more of its people slaughtered or displaced.

His fascist Kiev friends want Russia forced to pay for the carnage they caused – for nonexistent Russian aggression.

RT International quoted Ukraine’s deputy economy development minister Aleksandr Borovik saying “(a)t a certain point, Russia will pay.”

“We need to calculate. We need to be ready to lobby wherever we can. And say, this must be paid.”

“It was $350 billion when Iraq attacked Kuwait,” he said. “Then they decided $320 billion was owed.”

“Taking into account how long that aggression took and how long Russia’s aggression against us has been going on, those are comparable.”

Fact: The whole world knows Ukraine waged naked aggression against its own people.

Fact: Kiev and Washington bear full responsibility for mass slaughter and destruction.

Fact: Throughout months of conflict, Russia went all-out for resolving things diplomatically.

Fact: Claims of “Russian aggression” are Big Lies. The whole world knows none occurred – or is any planned.

Fact: Vladimir Putin is a consummate peacemaker. He deplores war. He wants Ukraine’s conflict resolved diplomatically.

Chances for Kiev collecting compensation from Russia for its own criminality are ZERO.

Russia’s lower house State Duma International Committee chairman, Alexey Pushkov, expressed outrage about Kiev’s demand, twittering:

“Kiev’s regime has been involved in ruining Donbas, shelled the cities and plants, and now it demands $350 billion from Russia. Strange. And hopeless.”

Ukraine has a separate absurd $16 billion damage claim over contracted gas prices Russia charged – agreed to by former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

Its Nazi-infested parliament adopted a decree calling Russia an “aggressor state.” Pending legislation criminalizes publicly denying “Russian aggression” – even though the whole world knows none exists or is planned.

Fascist regimes operate this way. Washington and Kiev are partners in high crimes against peace.

    It is pretty obvious they are working up to demanding Russia pays for the Crimea, this at the pushing of the EU in order to pay for the Ukraine’s continually blowing out debt.
    Problem there being of course, Russia could demand that Ukraine pay for the Soviet Union taking the Crimea in the first place and giving it to the Ukraine, this plus interest owed upon that theft.
    So if you were born in that region under dispute prior to it being handed over to the Ukraine by the Soviet Union are you Russian or were you just chattel handed over in the transaction and now a Ukrainian.
