This evening, we bid farewell, pay our respects, bow our heads and even shed a tear or two for a bonafide hero of the Novorossiya (Donbass) Resistance: Mikhail “Givi” Tolstykh. The legendary commander of the Donetsk People’s Republic’s Somali Battalion was martyred earlier on when a terrorist fired a rocket from a Shmel flamer right into his office. His death was… Gruesome, to put it mildly. He lost a leg, a foot and part of his head in the criminal, cowardly attack. Givi had stared the Grim Reaper in the face more times than anyone can count over the last several years as the Russian-speaking and ethnically Russian people of Eastern Ukraine battled for their freedom and independence from the US-EU-backed, Zionist-controlled, Russophobic junta in Kiev.

Pro-Russian separatists have vowed to mobilise up to 100,000 fighters for their latest eastern Ukraine offensive as the US mulled sending weapons to Kiev’s forces after the latest truce bid collapsed.
Alexander Zakharchenko, leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR), was quoted by Russian news agencies as saying the mobilisation would take place next week. Continue reading Novorossiya’s Armed Forces vow to mobilize 100,000-strong force

Ukraine’s government is looking to sell state assets — which collectively might produce up to 35 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product — to boost an economy mired in recession.
“We are announcing the biggest privatization in 20 years,” said Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. “I think any state-run companies, holdings and other trash … are ineffective. Their activity is focused on one thing – stealing the money that’s been received under state guarantees.” Continue reading IMF Takeover In Effect: Illegal Kiev coup regime aims for big asset selloff soon

Last week in a candid address to Ukrainian nationalists in the Odessa Opera House, president Petro Poroshenko outlined how he is planning to win the war in East Ukraine:
“We (Ukraine) will have our jobs – they (Donbas) will not. We will have our pensions – they will not. We will have care for children, for people and retirees – they will not. Our children will go to schools and kindergartens… theirs will hole up in the basements. Because they are not able to do a thing. This is exactly how we will win this war!”
The chocolate oligarch, backed by Brussels and Washington, is not afraid anymore to openly admit that the Ukrainian Army is targeting civilian buildings on purpose and forcing Donbass people and children into basements, in order to intimidate the population into leaving the area or surrender.

The leader of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky has thrown down the gauntlet to the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, pledging that “the one who wins, will set his terms” for ending the bloody conflict in the region.
“I suggest you consider just one, but a very good scenario,” Plotnitsky wrote in an open letter to Poroshenko. “Let’s (following the example of the ancient Slavic leaders and glorious Cossack chieftains) get together in a fight: whoever wins will dictate terms to the opposite side.”
Plotnitsky’s “terms” are multiple, among them an immediate cessation of all hostilities; withdrawal of all legal, semi-legal and illegal armed groups of Ukraine beyond the administrative boundaries of Lugansk and Donetsk Regions; the start of peace negotiations between Ukraine on one side and the LPR and Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) on the other.
