(RINF) – As Russia and leaders from dozens of other countries prepare to celebrate Victory in Europe on May 9 in Moscow, the defeated scourge again threatens regional peace and stability – courtesy of US-installed and supported Ukrainian Nazi thugs.
They celebrated May 2 as Victory Day – the infamous year ago day when Kiev-unleashed Right Sector Nazi thugs murdered hundreds of anti-regime Odessans wanting to live free from the scourge of fascism.
City police did nothing while they shot, bludgeoned, strangled, hacked to death with axes, and threw defenseless victims from windows of Odessa’s Trade Union House building where they sought sanctuary in vain.
Right Sector thugs awaited them inside for a well-planned mass murder operation ordered by Kiev, OK’d by Washington.
Ukraine’s Nazi-controlled Svoboda party outrageously said the following:
“May 2, 2014 was a historic day for Odessa. Odessans bravely repulsed Kremlin gangs and their local leaders, thus protecting the city from the arrival of the ‘Russian world.’ ”
“This day was decisive in the months-long stand off between the members of Odessa Maidan and the anti-government and staunchly pro-Moscow Anti-Maidan.”
“It culminated in Ukrainian victory and the beginning of a new page in the history of the city.”
Svoboda proclaimed May 2 as a “day of victory over the Kremlin terrorists groups, the day of purification from the Kremlin infection.”
“This day is a proud page in the history of the city.”
Washington is in bed with some of the world’s most ruthless elements – including monarchal and other despots, Nazis, takfiri terrorists, and virtually any outlaw groups and individuals willing to do its dirty work.
US imperial ruthlessness menaces humanity worldwide. It assures endless wars, genocidal slaughter, mass destruction and unspeakable human misery.
It passes under the radar of a complicit media ignoring what demands daily headlines. Presstitution triumphs over legitimate journalism.
State-sponsored propaganda substitutes for reporting hard truths on issues mattering most.
Ukraine is in the eye of the storm. Irresponsible Russia bashing remains intense.
Last Thursday, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf outrageously accused Moscow of “a lot of lip service…about its Minsk commitments but not a lot of action.”
Asked about the year ago Odessa massacre, she ducked explaining Kiev’s responsibility complicit with Washington.
She called the anniversary “important…not to lose sight of the bigger picture in Ukraine and that the fact that Russia’s ‘aggression’ has left more than 6,000 people dead and displaced at least a million more.”
It bears repeating what previous articles stressed. Russia is the continent’s leading peace and stability proponent.
America threatens world peace. It bears full responsibility for Ukrainian crisis conditions – for dirty war without mercy against Donbass civilians, for last May’s Odessa massacre murdering hundreds in cold blood.
Don’t expect any US official to explain. They’re complicit in the highest of high crimes.
Blaming Russia irresponsibly is cover for their own criminality – on an unprecedented worsening global scale.
The Donetsk People’s Republic Prime Minister Denis Pushilin accused Kiev’s “overseas sponsors” (mainly Washington) of helping their puppet regime continue waging war on Donbass.
Poroshenko refuses to observe Minsk ceasefire terms. He ignores them entirely. He’s preparing for escalated war.
“We are ready for any turn of events, but we will do the utmost to solve the situation at the negotiating table,” Pushilin explained.
Fascist regimes don’t negotiate. They demand. Kiev and its US puppet master want unconditional Donbass surrender.
They want nationwide fascist rule. They deplore democratic rights. They’ll continue waging dirty war to eliminate them entirely nationwide. Expect lots more death and destruction ahead.
Moscow expressed concern about blatant Kiev Minsk breaches – especially recent heavy shelling of Donetsk.
According to DPR officials, residential areas were targeted. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov urged OSCE chairman Ivica Dacic to intervene responsibly to halt Kiev aggression.
Moscow’s Foreign Ministry wants OSCE monitors to “demand that Kiev immediately stop a flagrant violation of the Minsk agreements.”
Donetsk Mayor Igor Martynov said residential buildings and a school were struck.
OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) is expected to visit the targeted area on Sunday to assess what happened.
Its latest report explained deteriorating conditions “involving live fire (by Ukrainian forces) near and at SMM patrols.”
It bears repeating what previous articles explained. Minsk was dead on arrival.
Washington demands continued dirty war without mercy. Expect escalation at Obama’s discretion.
Potentially targeting Russia belligerently looms. US forces are readying for confrontation. Will WW III follow?
