    Ukraine's government keeps making new enemies. Recently, the country's officials have faced sharp criticism from the authorities of Hungary, Poland, Romania and Moldova for the new education law envisaging that Ukrainian will be the only language used in schools. Ukraine's neighbors condemn this legislation, saying it will infringe on the rights of all ethnic minorities living in Ukraine.

    However, instead of listening to the neighbor countries in Europe and resolving the dispute, the Ukrainian authorities preferred to intimidate all those who disagree with their political course. As a deterrent Ukraine chose the lethal weapons it will after all receive from the US. Famous Ukrainian political analyst Oleg Ponomar, who has close contacts to the inner circles of the government, posted the information on his Facebook page. As it turns out, the Ukrainian government is planning to use the lethal weapons against anyone who endangers national security and integrity of Ukraine. Previously, only Russia fitted the description, but now the country's used-to-be friendly western neighbors are also in danger. Mr. Ponomar suggests that they reconsider their position; in other words, he simply intimidates them.

    Great news, friends!

    About the US lethal weapons supplies:

    We will have the weapons! Despite the subversive act in Vinnytsia region, the US realizes that providing Ukraine with military equipment and ammunition is the only way to deter the aggressor. Kurt Volker's statement is an eloquent testimony to that.

    All movements and supplies of the weapons will be kept secret to prevent further subversion.

    For alarmists and citizens succumbed to the Kremlin's propaganda:

    The Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive modern weapons capable of deciding the outcome of the war in our favor. Moreover, based on the information from credible sources, I'll get straight to the point: it will be used against any threats to Ukraine's security and integrity, regardless of where the threats come from. I think Moscow, Budapest, Bucharest and other capitals suffering from delusions of grandeur will get the message clearly. Ukraine won't let anyone endanger its territorial integrity, and our American allies give us their unconditional support in this matter.

    Thank you for your attention!

    Have a great Sunday evening!


    Ukrainian authorities seem to believe that their possibilities are endless and they can do whatever they want. Obviously, these bold statements of Kiev are fully backed by the US government, acting as Ukraine's patron. Such an attitude of the United States to Ukraine really strikes me. The US government is known to arm its European ally, first of all, in order to deter Russia. But it´s important to remember that giving such a dangerous toy as lethal weapons to such a disobedient and ill-bred child as Ukraine is risky: explosions at the ammunition depot in Vinnytsia show that the Ukrainian military are not very good at 'playing with such toys'. Apparently, the White House fails to understand that the military aid they provide to the aggressive Ukraine's government may be used not only against their initial target, but also against other nations Ukraine considers unfriendly. Eventually, the USA puts the security of the European continent in jeopardy.

    Textbook opening post by one of the Kremlins trolls that are paid to spam message boards the world over with whatever cack they are now pushing
    It's the standard Russian MO ie a non-existent source is invented that makes wild claims with zero evidence in this case "supported" by an irrelevant photo of the brief and unproductive visit of Poroshenko to the White House several months ago.
    The objective is that among the vast majority of readers that will laugh at it a few useful idiots will pick up the ball and run with it.

    There has of course been no decision made by the US to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine as of yet (although if I was a gambling man Id stick a tenner on them arriving at some point). If/when they do arrive they will of course be pointed at the forces Putin has sent into Donbass and no one else, hence the Kremlin having to manufacture concern among Europeans about their potential arrival.

    The "education" story is a non-issue. It has been written into the Ukrainian constitution since Independence that Ukrainian is the one official language of the country and that the Government is obliged to promote its use in all Government programs. So the fact that they have announced that all state funded schools will have to teach through Ukrainian is unremarkable.

    And while there has been low level grumbling from Ukraine's western neighbours this has been rather muted and its ludicrous to suggest that this storm in a teacup could ever be a major diplomatic affair.
    The likes of Poland wont make a big deal about it less the lack of non-Polish speaking state schools in Poland is pointed out nor the fact that there is nothing to stop Poland putting its money where its mouth is and using Polish taxpayers money to finance Polish speaking schools in Ukraine if they feel its that big an issue as the Ukrainian language restriction only applies to schools funded by the Ukrainian taxpayer.

    I whole heartedly agree, and a lot of people both on the Left and the Right during the Cold War realized this, but after it if anything it has got worse while most people have gone to sleep on the issue.

    The Anglo-American Empire has seized Ukraine and is currently asset stripping its interior whilst the self hating Ukrainian dullards are in a frenzy over a scarecrow dressed in a Mao suit and a mask of Putin on its head, all propped up by that very same Anglo-mercantile empire.

    You gotta hand to the Anglos-Americans, they are accomplished magicians and illusionists, great at the old bait n' switch, able to turn reality on its head, turn kinsmen into blood enemies and get people to praise their own burglars.

    I remember I used to call it the "Paul Daniels Empire" for this reason.
