Video Report: Exchange of 37 Militiamen with 37 Ukrainian POWs
Film by Alexandr Kots and Dmitry Steshin (“Komsomolskaya Pravda”)
Subtitles by Marcel Sardo and O.C.
Alexander Kots and Dmitry Steshin—the special correspondents of “Komsomolskaya Pravda”—tell about the first captives exchange in the format of “37 for 37”, that took place “in neutral territory” on the highway near Donetsk in the the dead of the night.
It took almost a week to prepare the event, and obviously, the negotiations were going on arduously. The parties were changing and working out the lists of “lucky ones” all the time. Initially they were going to exchange about a thousand for three hundred of POWs, however the lists became much shorter until the end of the week. According to a relator, performing this humanitarian action on behalf of DPR, typically the most difficult task was to assure the safety for such an issue: “When an exchange is carried out by the commanders of enemy units—it is one thing. They discuss everything by mobile phone, and even then, there is an entire mess-up and gunfire. In our case, everything was very complicated. I would say, there was an expectancy of quite serious provocations with unpredictable aftermath.”
The exchange was postponed several times not without a reason. Neither people believed it would likely happen on the night of Friday. However, the OSCI mission were staying a few steps away from their cars. The Europeans were hanging around wearing flak jackets and answering questions evasively. At 2:00 at night—not right time for the humanitarian mission—we joined the motorcade with a yellow regular bus in the middle of it. They even forgot to take off the plate with the route number. Only several persons seemed to know the terminal point, and the place for the exchange. We dodged along the border of the former front-line, which had been here for almost two months, going further to about five kilometers wide neutral zone. The beautiful highway suffered a lot from mines and “Grad” rockets somewhere. We struggled forward through the debris of a bridge blown up—a local driver was groaning dolefully, giving no comment though. The bridge was blasted during the hardest days of the city defence at the beginning of July.
The motorcade stopped, and one of the Militia escort asked everybody to turn the headlights off and to close the car doors, so that there was no light from inside. For ten oppressive minutes, we were staying in the darkness. The “KP” correspondents switched the cameras over the “night vision” mode—it is difficult to discern some silhouettes of armed people dispersing along roadside.
The artillery roar was heard from the left afar. We could see the light of headlamps in the direction of Konstantinovka. In the darkness, we found ourselves on a perfectly straight section of road, with fields along both sides. There were only fifty meters between two columns. A person in a light light-coloured shirt and light-coloured trousers, unsuitable for the ensuing autumn night, is walking toward us. This choice clothing is not accidental. In his hands, the intermediary holds a folder with documents and an icon. However, behind him, we can see the outlines of three SBU spetsnaz fighters and a camera operator.
The chief of the Ukrainian negotiating group of the Antiterrorist Center Yuriy Tandit gave an icon to Darya—the representative of DPR, and answered the questions of Russian journalists.
After quick negotiations, the procedure of exchange was determined. People were leaving buses in groups of five, moving in file from one bus to another. The Ukrainian soldiers were moving first. They were strung in front of cameras, and even after reaching their own forces remained reserved and taciturn. Meanwhile, another group of exhausted people was moving from the UAF bus towards the Militia. By the way, at the place of exchange we could not see the latter being armed, for not to flare up tensions, while the Ukrainian Spetsnaz did not hesitate to show their complete expensive outfit.
The majority of captives were disappearing from their homes all of a sudden, without warrants, decrees or any other juridical procedures. The Ukrainian forces did not realise that by carrying out that kind of “witch-hunt”, they were antagonizing the people whom they were willing to liberate.
Transcript of the “Komsomolskaya Pravda” Video Report
Alexandr Kots, KP: Behind me you can see a bus with the captive Ukrainian soldiers. They are accompanied by OSCE representatives. The exchange is going to be carried out now here, on the Konstantinovka highway.
Yuriy Tandit, the chief of the Ukrainian negotiating group of the Antiterrorist Center: In accordance with the arrangement concluded earlier in Minsk, today there are two groups—37 persons on the one part and 37 persons on the other part. They are different people. Some are those, for whom their relatives interceded, as we get calls every day from the wives, parents, children, of course, they help us. We conduct research, we are in the process, and we want to implement the Minsk arrangement—to exchange all the captives.
Reporter: Please, tell us, whom are you returning to the representatives of Donetsk?
Yuriy Tandit: We are returning the people. They were staying in different places. They are different people—some are citizens of Ukraine and some are Russians.
Reporter: How do you estimate the terms with the opposite party regarding the transmission of the captives? How are you cooperating?
Yuriy Tandit: You know, we are in usual terms. I mean, it is a negotiation process, we make concessions to each other, we fulfil our promises.
KP Reporter: However, periodically the exchange is delayed. The term is postponed. What is the reason for that?
Yuriy Tandit: There are different reasons, because we have extra lists which we receive. And we also need time, that is why we may sometimes postpone the exchange for the objective reasons. Nevertheless, I think now the issue will run faster and everything will be fine.
Reporter (to Ukrainian POWs): How are you? Happy?
Ukrainian POW #1: Yes, of course. I am glad that we really agreed and are finally near our homes. Well, though far away yet, but already at home.
Reporter: Have you already communicated somehow with your family?
Ukrainian POW #1: For now, not yet.
Reporter: How long have you been (in captivity)?
Ukrainian POW #1: Three weeks. Three weeks and three days.
Ukrainian POW #2: There were military men, though they were quite loyal to us. We were provided with regular food, water, lavatory, and all the rest.
Reporter: You have some people injured, why do they have their heads bandaged up?
Ukrainian POW #2: They have been wounded during either fighting or under fire.
Reporter: Tell, what do you feel now?
Ukrainian POW #2: I feel nothing.
KP Reporter talks to Alla Andreevna, who was in the torture chamber of the Ukrainian secret service.
Alla Andreevna: They put plastic bag on my head, I was being throttled, I was suffocating. I have diabetes mellitus. They did not let me go to the toilet, they were keeping me in handcuffs, saying: “You—separatist, bitch,—we will rape you all by turns, then will direct you to the minefield.” So it was, in general.
Reporter: How are you now? Happy?
Alla Andreevna: Now I am just happy. I think, the God has returned me my life. Just the life.
Reporter: Did you pray?
Alla Andreevna: I prayed, and as I helped the people a lot so I think the God is with me. And the Mother Russia is also with us, right? How we sing it in the anthem of DPR: “The Mother Russia is with you”.
KP Reporter talks to Dmitry Saitov, who was in the torture chamber of the Ukrainian secret service.
Reporter: Generally, how was it there?
Dmitry Saitov: Namely, what?
Reporter: In which conditions you were kept?
Dmitry Saitov: I was captured in Kharkov on August 5, and they brought me, as I understood, to Kramatork, to the Organized Crime Division building. They kept me there over 3 days. They blamed me for the connections with terrorists, with the DPR. Then they took me to a certain esplanade. I supposed, that was an airdrome in Kramatorsk. There they kept me on a chain, with handcuffs. The conditions were actually awful.
Reporter: Did they get physical?
Dmitry Saitov: Yes, I have learned what a ramrod is… for the submachine gun.
Reporter: What did they do with the ramrod for gun?
Dmitry Saitov: They were trying… I should not say it in front of the camera—to force us to urinate with blood. They were taking people out in a field to execute by shooting. They shot, they just tormented people, so it was.
Reporter: What did they demand from you?
Dmitry Saitov: An avowal that I am a terrorist, a DPR partisan.
Reporter: And what do you actually do?
Dmitry Saitov: If you probably remember me, I was liberating people in Slavyansk on May 3. That was my first public performance. Also before that, or later—I cannot remember, it was me who liberated two of the OSCE officers and took them to Donetsk. I was taking different measures for settlement of the conflict, I attended roundtables, in general, I performed peacekeeping issues.
KP Reporter talks to Roman Obramov, who was in the torture chamber of the Ukrainian secret service.
Roman Obramov: The “Aidar” battalion captured me at home. I came home to take the belongings to pass them to my child. I have a baby. At that time it was 5 months old, now it is 9. Obviously, they took out everything from my house: A lap-top, a plasma TV set, gold and silver. Everything.
Reporter: Where did they take you? How were you treated?
Roman Obramov: Well, I was taken to Starobelsk. There I overnighted at the SBU building, and the next day they took me to Kharkov. I was not at the ATO. I was beaten at the military unit.
Reporter: Could you tell us more?
They beat me at home. Well, how were we treated? Like ordinary prisoners, in a cell. We had saunters sometimes. At the SBU they are more or less humane.
Reporter: What did they want fro you?
Roman Obramov: I have no idea.
Reporter: Did they carry out any investigative action with you?
Roman Obramov: No.
Reporter: They just kept you in the cell.
Roman Obramov: Right. They forced me to testify against the guys. That is all.
Reporter: In which way did they force you?
Roman Obramov: Well, in which way usually can someone be forced? With menace. They menaced, they took me to a court, recorded evidences. That is all, then took me back into the cell, without any actions.
Reporter: Did you personally participate in the Militia activity or anything else?
Roman Obramov: I did not before, but now I will.
KP Reporter talks to another POW, that was in the torture chamber of the Ukrainian secret service.
Reporter: How were you arrested?
Militia POW: It was on June 22. They took me from home I was seized by the “Aydar” battalion, that is in Lugansk region now.
Reporter: In which city were you taken?
Militia POW: In Petrovka settlement of Stanitsa-Luganskaya district in Lugansk region. I was not “taken”, rather “captured”. As a number of armed masked people without any identification came to my place in broad daylight. They beat me in front of an 8-years old child.
Reporter: Why did they come to your place?
Militia POW: I have no idea. I do not know for which reason they have been keeping me. They did not accuse me of anything within 80 days since I have been captured.
Reporter: What are you? Your profession?
Militia POW: I am a retiree of the Ministry of Interior since 2010. I have been keeping house.
Reporter: What has been happening to you during those 80 days? Where were you kept?
Militia POW: I was kept in Schastie for 3 days, there is a police school. They beat me there, calling “separatist”. Everyone living in Lugansk region appears to be a separatist. After 3 days I was sent to the SBU in Kharkov. There I have been staying until today.
Reporter: Did they use force as a method of influence?
Militia POW: Not in Kharkov, although in Schastie they did. They stabbed all my leg and arm with an awl. I was beaten by 6 or 7 people.
Reporter: What kind of tortures did you undergo, except with an awl?
Militia POW: They tortured by tightening handcuffs. I was fastened with hands and feet. Also strangling.
It is a very grave mistake to make any kind of deals or attempt any cease-fire with the Kiev junta Nazis. The EU hurriedly re-arms them in the interim, every time..
The Kiev Nazis commit atrocities with impunity, and then write laws in Verkhovna Rada the next day to excuse themselves. They always pick on the most defenseless, either pregnant cleaning ladies who they rape and kill in Odessa, or as here, diabetic civilian ladies whom they terrify and torture.
How can any civilised Ukrainian national government ever come out of this Nazi excuse for humanity?. Ukraine needs to be de-Nazified full stop.. That is all.!! Then you can argue about partition or federalisation.. How long will it take you and how many dead innocents to learn that to bargain with fascists leads nowhere except to the morgue or to hospital?.
The pathetic Amnesty International will say yet again; ‘Oh, Yes, the Ukrainian punitive forces (Adair/Azov etc) ‘may’ have committed atrocities’
Grow up and stop lying, Amnesty International … you are just excusing genocide and colluding with the EU, because it ensures your financial survival and your EU credibility.

Amnesty International is a Zionist organization funded by NWO money. I met them in action in Malaysia when I was an expert witness on DU, nuclear and exotic weapons used in Iraq. They must have been trained in Israel because that is where many of their members loyalty was. HIDEOUS ORGANIZATION supporting and excusing the inexcusable Zionists as they destroy the world. Half-wit druggie Poroshenko tried to buy drones from Israel very recently and the Israeli’s agreed but the Minister of Defense refused to ok it because it would destroy their relationship with Russia/Putin. The only reason I am sure the Defense Minister said no is because Israel is about the third biggest arms seller in the world and they did not want to lose the sales revenue. After all, Israel would collapse without huge amounts of funding from the US govt. while 70% of American children live under the poverty level.
I had an argument with one of the Amnesty International lawyers over the first sodomy charges by the Malaysian govt. against their own Vice President Ibrahim Anwar. Tun Dr. Mahahtir, then Prime Minister of Malaysia, told me the story himself of the sodomy charges against Ibrahim, his hand picked choice to be the next PM after Mahathir. Ibrahim was tried and convicted of sodomy and served a jail term because of his own stupidity. He went to the police and demanded that the driver he sodomized write a letter of apology to Ibrahim. After the driver wrote it, he gave it back to the police and told them to make it a stronger apology. The police got suspicious of Ibrahim and started investigating him – resulting in evidence that convicted him. Now, just a few months ago in March at the very time that MH370 was shot down by the US Navy, he was charged AGAIN with sodomizing another person, and he was out on bail and facing another trial while he ran for PM of Malaysia. The Amnesty International lawyer had argued with me and said the first trial was rigged, he was innocent etc. Well when Ibrahim got out of prison for the first sodomy conviction guess who offered him a job. Paul Wolfowitz at the World bank. And that exposed Ibrahim as a Zionist mole in the Malaysian govt.
The depleted uranium missiles that hit Malaysian MH 370 in March (timed with Ukraines new illegal govt. appointed by Victoria Neuland and the CIA) and MH17 in July were both planned and executed by Obama and the US Navy — the radioactive missile bookends of Obama’s (third generation CIA) bogus “Pivot to Asia”. MH370 was shot down just as soon as it entered Singapore airspace (CIA/MI6 headquarters for SE Asia) over the South China Sea, giving the CIA and MI6 jurisdiction over the investigation, and a Singapore airliner was within 2 miles of MH17 as it was shot down with a BUC missile and was no doubt observing (for CIA/MI6) the downing of MH17 over Donbass. I am very happy to say that the brave eastern Ukrainian militia has made an absolute fool of Obama by screwing up his CIA/MI6 Pivot to Asia and exposing Poroshenko as an Anglo-American permanent war crimes racketeering syndicate and NWO cold blooded murderer and genocidal psychopath.
Poroshenko may not win this war but he doesn’t need to – he has deliberately caused the deaths of much of his own govt. troops (more than 14,000 have died – nearly 50% of the present 30-35,000 army and National Guard) in the cauldrons of eastern Ukraine which was always the underlying goal so as to bring the mercenaries into Ukraine and destroy any Ukrainian military resistance to oil companies raping Ukraine. Bush and Obama did the same genocide of the US army and National Guard by sending them to Iraq wars in order to facilitate the NWO overthrow of the US that is now underway. Poroshenko has also systematically caused the heavy radioactive contamination of eastern Ukraine towns and villages and wheat fields with heavy depleted uranium shelling and missile attacks on the pro-Russian civilians of eastern Ukraine. They wanted to secede from an illegal govt, and because they did not want to be genocided by the Nazis in Kiev – and their concerns have been justified. Wasn’t it Soros lover Tymoshenko who proposed nuking the “people of Crimea and their leader”? Her leaked private phone conversation indicated that and was widely reported in the international media.
It seems that the world we live in today is being destroyed by templates of false flags, templates to carry out hidden genocides with nuclear materials, and templates to overthrow democratically elected governments. Just read the 1822 Secret Treaty of Verona. It’s all there and well funded to this day.

Who funded and sponsored the 1822 Secret Treaty of Verona? The Jesuits, who began their secret program in 1776, to completely destroy the United States as a new nation WITH A CONSTITUTION THAT GAVE CITIZENS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH/RELIGION ETC. It is the Jesuits today who are behind the destruction of the Ukraine in order to loot the people’s natural resources and land grab the Ukraine. The Ukraine conflict is the most important conflict in the world today because over the next ten years the outcome will determine the success or failure of the Jesuit transition to a New World Order that will destroy civil society and the history of our civilization. The outcome will affect every living thing on this planet and it will turn on the strength and wisdom of Putin.
I am glad you point out that the NWO is taking over the US. I always thought it unfair to blame the US for the actions of the NWO, just as it is unfair for Amercans to blame Russia. Where I differ is, I believed the NWO had been ruling the US since the days of the first George Bush. The NWO is of course transnational. Nations per se do not have much control over the course of the world.
Who really are the Jesuits? I will look them up, but I doubt I would find honest information. Aren’t they a Christian sect? How do they relate to the NWO, the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Club of Rome, and the Trilateral Commision, for example? Any explanation of why and how the Jesuits are involved in today’s NWO would be helpful. A good link on the Bilderberg Group:
It seems most of the Ukranian “POW” are just civilians they captured for no appearent reason.
I wouldn’t make any deals with the fascists. They are not to be trusted. Why Poroshenko kept them in government and security forces when he became president of Ukraine? To save his butt ! He knows these are killers without any remorse. Look what happened to the woman in the opposition who criticized what the ukrainian junta was doing in Donbass. The thugs muzzled her! Today “Yats” ordered the defense minister to keep the country’s armed forces in the highest state of combat readiness. Why? What is he expecting or planning? He said: “I ask the defense minister and the interior minister [to ensure] full combat readiness and supply everything that the army or the National Guard needs,” he said. The thugs in the National Guard! Another thing that I can’t understand is why is the UN human rights chief Navi Pillay blaming the pro-Independence freedom fighters for all the crimes committed in the southeast of Ukraine. She hasn’t mentioned the massacre in Odessa, the airstrikes in cities and towns with the purpose to kill everybody – meaning ethnic cleansing. When she went to Kiev recently I sent her a message to her twitter account offering to send her the pictures and videos of the massacre in Odessa, and the airstrikes ordered by Poroshenko. Instead she wrote she had a very pleasant time talking with Poroshenko and claimed she didn’t have enoght time to go to Donbass. A human rights chief for the United Nations prefers to chit-chat with the fascists than going to the war zone and talk to the families that have lost their homes AND THEIR LOVED ONES WHO WERE KILLED! i don’t trust her at all. I’m glad she’s leaving her post at the UN and hope someone more qualified than her and not biased conducts a good investigation of what in reality is happened and is happening in Ukraine. A fascist government installed by the West, and the genocide of the civilians..
I noticed that as soon as the UN helicopters were filmed delivering and deploying Ukrainian army and mercenaries to the front, the fact of the marked UN choppers was hushed up immediately, and excuses made.
The UN is up to its neck in colluding with the illegal Kiev junta Nazis.
They (Kiev junta) also used UN choppers to deliver lethal munitions.
Don’t hold your breath expecting rationale and sense in the new appointment to the UN.. The UN’s pro-United Snakes corrupt abetting, and tacit support of the Neocons and their war crimes is endemic and entrenched. The US could not commit such atrocities in the world (and especially in Gaza and Ukraine) without having the UN muzzled and completely on-board.

United Snakes? ROFLMFAO. Please see my comment above though, about it being unfair to blame any one country. I think it’s the NWO we’re talking about, the transnational powers that be. I think they’ve controlled the US since the first George Bush days.
I agree with you about the UN helicopters that were used to transport members of the Ukrainian army and mercenaries hired by NATO from Academi. The UN Secretary General promised an investigation. We got total silence instead. But I disagree with you in that the United Nations is pro-United States. That depends of who the Secretary General is. In my opinion, Koffi Annan was a great SG. From February until August 2012, Annan was the UN – Arab League Joint Special Representative for Syria. Annan quit after becoming frustrated with the UN’s lack of progress with regard to conflict resolution, stating that “when the Syrian people desperately need action, there continues to be finger-pointing and name-calling in the Security Council.” Annan and the UN were the co-recipients of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize. “for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world.” He is the Chairman of The Elders, a group founded by Nelson Mandela. Koffi Annan supported his deputy Secretary-General Mark Malloch Brown, who openly criiticized the United States in a speech on 6 June 2006: “[T]he prevailing practice of seeking to use the UN almost by stealth as a diplomatic tool while failing to stand up for it against its domestic critics is simply not sustainable. You will lose the UN one way or another. […] [That] the US is constructively engaged with the UN […] is not well known or understood, in part because much of the public discourse that reaches the US heartland has been largely abandoned to its loudest detractors such as Rush Limbaugh and Fox News” Malloch later said his talk was a “sincere and constructive critique of U.S. policy toward the U.N.
The talk was unusual because it violated unofficial policy of not having top officials publicly criticize member nations. The interim U.S. ambassador John R. Bolton, appointed by President George W. Bush, was reported to have told Annan on the phone: “I’ve known you since 1989 and I’m telling you this is the worst mistake by a senior UN official that I have seen in that entire time.” Observers from other nations supported Malloch’s view that conservative politicians in the US prevented many citizens from understanding the benefits of US involvement in the UN.
When Annan decided to visit Cuba to meet Fidel Castro who was sick, he was criticized by the US and its allies. Annan didn’t them, instead he focused on his trip to Cuba and meeting the Cuban leader.
Annan gave a farewell address to world leaders gathered at the UN headquarters in New York, in anticipation of his retirement. In the speech he outlined three major problems of “an unjust world economy, world disorder, and widespread contempt for human rights and the rule of law”, which he believes “have not resolved, but sharpened” during his time as Secretary-General. He also pointed to violence in Africa, and the Arab-Israeli conflict as two major issues warranting attention.
In his final speech as Secretary-General, delivered at the Harry Truman Presidential Library in Independence Missouri, Annan recalled Truman’s leadership in the founding of the United Nations. He called for the United States to return to President Truman’s multilateralist foreign policies, and to follow Truman’s credo that “the responsibility of the great states is to serve and not dominate the peoples of the world”. He also said that the United States must maintain its commitment to human rights, “including in the struggle against terrorism.”
I should mention that in 1997 Koffi Annan presented a comprehensive reform entitled ‘Renewing the United Nations: A Programme for Reform’ (A/51/950). Key proposals included the introduction of strategic management to strengthen unity of purpose, the establishment of the position of Deputy Secretary-General, a 10-percent reduction in posts, a reduction in administrative costs, the consolidation of the UN at the country level, and reaching out to civil society.
Unfortunately we haven’t had another UN Secretary General like Koffi Annan. Instead we get puppets of the Empire of Chaos. But is up to us all people of the world to demand changes at the United Nations.
I said it and repeat it: don’t make any deals with the fascists! Why? I just read in RIA NOVOSTI that the Ukrainian Bill on Donbas’ Special Status Can Be Revoked in 6 Months!!!! What a PRANK BY THE KIEV NEO-NAZI JUNTA!
I suppose the NAF is reluctant to compromise the repatriation of its own people, but isn’t it time to question the high number of civilians offered by Kiev in exchange for POWs?
I hope this doesn’t mean that the militia members captured have not lived to be exchanged. It certainly highlights how many civilians were kidnapped by UAF and its irregulars.

Please watch the following;..
Porkyshenko Adored by the United Snakes.
.Standing ovations for the war criminal and mass murderer of tens of thousands of Ukrainian conscripts and civilians.
This address by Porkyshenko to the Senate and House of representatives is shocking.. This is not a convocation of New World order members at all, it is a mass murderer of thousands of Ukrainians and Donbass residents addressing and colluding with the Neocon imbeciles of the United Snakes, all of whom are using Porkyshenko as their instrument to knife Putin and to demonise Russia endlessly.
It is a convocation of the truly insane, applauding the totally psychotic..
Listen as Porkyshenko kisses the United Snakes ass, and ensures that ‘his’ Ukraine needs so desperately to become a ‘club member’ and how each Kiev Nazi citizen only wants to work hard for Ukraine’s future.. I have rarely seen a more sick-making video, and could not watch it in its entirety…
Maybe Yarosh should have him assassinated, and at least that will clear some of the filth away for a short while, until this travesty of a government can be de-Nazified (if that is at all possible)
.. It can only get much worse from here on..
I like it when he says 45 people are watching.. (he meant 45 million (less the tens of thousands that he’s already killed) but he’s much too stupid to remember the correct Ukrainian population statistics, which are meaningless anyway, to a hardened sociopath.

I am aghast and horrified at the reception the US, my own country, has given to mass murderer Poroshenko. American foreign policy is atrocious. And the EU policies are appalling as well. Below is a link to the Text adopted by the European Parliament today, in which Russia is villified without a shred of proof. An excerpt is from page 17:
C. whereas the ceasefire has been persistently violated by, mainly, regular Russian troops and separatists since Friday, 5 September 2014 in areas near Mariupol and Donetsk airport, with attempts to probe Ukraine’s defences in several other localities;
D. whereas in the previous weeks Russia increased its military presence on the territory of Ukraine and logistical support of the separatist militias through a steady flow of weapons, ammunition, armoured vehicles and equipment, mercenaries and soldiers in disguise, in spite of the EU’s calls to make every effort to de-escalate the situation; whereas since the beginning of the crisis the Russian Federation has amassed troops and military hardware on the border with Ukraine;
E. whereas Russia’s direct and indirect military intervention in Ukraine, including the annexation of Crimea, violates international law including the UN Charter, the Helsinki Final Act and the 1994 Budapest Agreement; whereas Russia continues to refuse the implementation of the Conventional Armed Forces in Europe Treaty (CFE);
Oh yeah? The link:

This is sickening! The European Union MAFIA! I watched the video of Poroshenko begging his masters to give him his now favorite toys (lethal weapons!) to finish his ethnic cleansing in Ukraine. In turn, Senator John McCain told CBS’s Face the Nation that President Putin was “an old KGB colonel that wants to restore the Russian Empire.” HAHAHAHA! What a joke! And then Senator Robert Mendez, a Democrat who runs the Foreign Relations Committee(!!!) told CNN (remember when CNN put Ukraine in Pakistan’s map??!! hahaha), “We should provide the Ukrainians with the type of defensive weapons that will impose a cost upon Putin for further aggression. Sure, like if Russia had no weapons to defend itself… what an idiot! Meantime Putin is doing business with China… hahahaha!
