Trip to Lugansk People's Republic



I couldn't write much today because I went to Lugansk People's Republic on a job-related trip. In the process I visited Izvarino, Krasnodon, and Novosvetlovka.
After crossing the border between the Russian Federation and the LPR you end up in a different world. This especially applies to the semi-ruined Novosvetlovka.
It is one thing to see all of this in the photo and video and it is a completely different thing to see it live. There are many impressions, but I will write about them a bit later.

Strelkov about Minsk memorandum



Strelkov on the famous "mysterious" forum commented on the Minsk memorandum 2.0

Actually that about "the necessity of which the Bolsheviks have always spoken" has been accomplished [note from the translator: this Lenin quote became a famous Russian idiom] – the Ukies overcame their panic, regrouped, prepared for new battles, and now they clearly demonstrate that they would agree only to one possible development of these events: a complete capitulation of Russia in Novorussia. "Brilliant successes of peacemakers" of Surkov-Lavrov-Zurabov group once again lead the president to the very same choice that he faced a month ago: either a decisive war (now with even higher losses and costs) or a shameful capitulation (up next – Crimea and "Milošević scenario"). The military action was stopped precisely for achieving this goal. Only one question remains to be asked: for how much longer can Surkov obviously deceive Putin by presenting his "virtual successes" as real accomplishments? And for how long will the President be sure that Surkov and Co. remain under his control? In his day the deposed Napoleon said on St. Helena island (close to the source): "if I would hang Talleyrand and Fouché in proper time, then I would still rule over France!" And this was said by a great statesman who was also sure that he would outmaneuver the plotters in his circle..."

Who says that "everything is bad"? Everything will be bad only in if the President will make a suicidal step of accepting the terms of Party of Treason that are put under as "the only possible decision". And the latest steps and the rhetoric of various riffraff (starting from Zhirinovsky-the-buffoon) suggest that nobody is going to "dump" Novorossia. The only problem is that they are trying to conduct new politics using "old hands" – that is, through people who constitutionally can't stand it. Correspondingly, the results are good for nothing and instead of brilliant successes there are losses and ridiculous affectations around the various "open secrets" (this is when the whole world knows and one's own population doesn't know).

A brief but important update



Today I had a number of interesting meetings and conversations with interesting and quite competent people that significantly enriched my knowledge of certain peculiarities in the internal life of Novorossia. In the nearest time there will be several interesting materials, but for now briefly about certain interesting moments.

Novorossia lacks a Bolshevik party



A historian Igor Pyhalov, who went to fight in the Lugansk People's Republic in summer within an LPR battalion "Zarya" (was on the front lines, fought under the red flag), tells about what he saw and shares his opinion of what is good and what is bad in the current situation. He also complains about the lack of systematic work from the side of communists.

About "truce"



1. As we wrote before, the trajectory of the line that leads to a certain semblance of "Large Transnistria" is explained by the desire of the Russian Federation to avoid the direct confrontation with the West. And this is exactly the main spring of the negotiating process. It is quite obvious that this "new Transnistria" won't remain in Ukraine.
