President Putin has had to deal with countless phone calls from US President Barrack Obama. President Putin and the Kremlin have been quiet as to the contents of those calls by Obama, but we can be sure that Obama has been pressuring President Putin to allow his CIA organized coup of Ukraine stand. Once again Obama appears to be weak, fumbling, arrogant and domineering although he does not have a foot to stand on, and in fact is guilty of violating international law in his organizing and backing of a coup in Ukraine.
For the brave people of Crimea it has shown that they will not be swayed, manipulated, pressured or terrorized by the West and its agents and all of their nefarious methods, violence and bellicose rhetoric. Internationally and from a geopolitical viewpoint the referendum is another heralding moment to the return of a healthy state of multi-polarity in the world and for the people who inhabit it and an end to the unipolar dictatorship of the lawless American hegemon, a failing state whose double standards, theft of wealth and resources and endless illegal wars has wreaked havoc on the peaceful citizens of the world for much too long.
As an employee, commentator and writer for the Voice of Russia I would personally, albeit humbly, like to congratulate the Crimean people for exercising their democratic right to vote and for bravely making their voices heard despite the relentless machinations amassed against them by the West which has attempted to make Ukraine and Crimea just another outpost of their godless empire.
I am sure that my feelings at this moment are echoed by my colleagues at the Voice of Russia who have been directly involved on the front lines of an information war launched on the world by a subservient western corporate mass media ready to lock step with Obama and egregiously unquestioningly substitute truth for self-serving lies and war propaganda.
We must also give thanks to President Putin who, when given the full constitutional power and the right to use force in accordance with all national and international laws and conventions, refrained and continued his policies of respect for sovereignty, diplomatic resolution of conflicts, non-interference and above all the rule of law, something that Washington has long forgotten.
The efforts of everyone in the Russian Government must also be lauded, from Foreign Minister Lavrov’s untiring work to every member of the Russian Government, including those in the Federation Council, the State Duma and all of the heads of all of the Russian State organs and bodies of power for these are all people humbly and selflessly defending their homeland.
The Honorary Blacklist
As Ramzan Kadirov the head of the Chechen Republic said to ITAR-TASS, “I would be offended if I do not top a blacklist drawn up by the European Union,” referring to a blacklist compiled in connection with Russia’s position on Ukraine according to ITAR-TASS. Mr. Kadyrov said he would be glad to be included on a list which includes people “… who protect the interests of their country. I am glad to be on that list because I speak out against those who violate the rights of millions of people, including Muslims.” and “We have a strong state. They will not achieve what they did in other countries… We are guarding our homeland.” Wonderfully put, I would be honored to be on that list as well quite frankly.
The people of Crimea were an oppressed people, first by Ukraine, now by the Western colonizers and their Banderavites and those actively attempting to annex Ukraine to rape it for its resources and place their NATO war elements on its territory. Russia has once again helped an oppressed people achieve self-determination, maintain peace, uphold international law and do so without a single shot being fired or a single person’s life being lost. Responsibility for allviolence and death in Ukraine lies in the bloody hands of Washington and their agents in Ukraine.
Formal Request by Crimea
On the Morning of March 17, the Supreme Council of Crimea will meet to draw up a formal request for membership of the republic in the Russian Federation. “We need to start the political process of reunification with Russia, which will require decisions by the Russian State Duma and the Federation Council and the Russian President,” said the First Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea Rustam Temirgaliev.
According to Crimean Prime Minister Sergei Aksenov during the afternoon of March 17th, a delegation from the Crimean Parliament will fly to Russia to officially start the process.
Some Russian Reactions
According to Itar-Tass the Speaker of the State Duma, Sergei Naryshkin said: “The referendum in Crimea is a historic event for Russia. The State Duma is ready to quickly adopt all the laws necessary for Crimea’s entry into the Russian Federation.” He also stated colleagues from the State Duma who were in Crimea to observe the referendum said that many people cast their ballots with tears in their eyes and that since in the 23 years since Ukraine was declared a sovereign state, this was the day they had long been waiting for. And why not? Why shouldn’t Russians be happy to be part of Russia as opposed to a repressed minority under Banderovites and Ukrainian nationalists.
The leader of the parliamentary faction of the “A Just Russia” party, Sergey Mironov
The leader of the parliamentary faction ” Fair Russia” Sergei Mironov said that the State Duma will quickly enact all laws necessary for the accession of Crimea into the body of the Russian Federation. He added: “Let our Crimean brothers have no doubts.”
The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party Vladimir Zhirinovsky announced that the State Duma it may take as little as 3 days to as much as 3 month to enact all legislation to formally enter Crimea into the Russia Federation. According to Itar-Tass he also proposed declaring March 16th a new national holiday. “And let all the people be happy and smiling.”
The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has had to deal with countless phone calls from US President Barrack Obama. President Putin and the Kremlin have been quiet as to the contents of those calls by Obama, but we can be sure that Obama has been pressuring President Putin to allow his CIA organized coup of Ukraine stand. Once again Obama appears to be weak, fumbling, arrogant and domineering although he does not have a foot to stand on, and in fact is guilty of violating international in his organizing and backing of a coup in Ukraine.
In his last conversation President Putin once again graciously discussed issues regarding Ukraine with Obama (imagine if President Putin organized a coup in Canada and then called Obama to tell him to not do anything) and drew attention to the inability and unwillingness of the current Kiev authorities to curb rampant ultra-nationalist and radical groups who are destabilizing the country and terrorizing civilians, including the Russian-speaking population and our compatriots.
In this context considerations are being taken to sending an OSCE monitoring mission to Ukraine. According to the President of Russia the activity of such a mission should be extended to all Ukrainian regions .
With regard to the referendum in Crimea President Putin stressed that it was held in a manner fully consistent with international law and the UN Charter and took into account, in particular, the famous Kosovo precedent . At the same time the inhabitants of the peninsula were guaranteed the possibility of free will and self-determination. President Putin sated the same to UN head Ban Ki-Moon on the eve of the referendum.
As far as repeated threats by the West and its agents designed to pressure Russia and interfere with sovereign issues, in particular to exclude Russia from the G-8, President Putin told Obama that despite differences in weighing the situation they should work together to seek ways to help stabilize the situation in Ukraine.
Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov response to a question as to whether President Putin had taken into account and whether he expressed any “note of regret” that the G8 might end up without Russia by saying that this had not slipped the President mind and he had no regrets. In addition, he said that Russia will not make any changes in its foreign policy amid speculation about possible sanctions.
“Let’s wait for concrete decisions. Because right now we are discussing media reports and talking about the media reports and generalized statements. When there are specific steps taken, then we will have to assess the possible consequences, not only for us but also for our partners,” said Peskov.
Mr. Peskov also said that there had been no change of plans regarding President Putin’s foreign visits or to scheduled meeting of distinguished guests in the Kremlin.
Foreign Minister Lavrov
The Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov also discussed the referendum in the Crimea with US Secretary of State John Kerry, also initiated by the US side during which he reiterated that the referendum in Crimea: “… fully complies with international law and the UN Charter, and the results should be the starting point in determining the future of the peninsula.”
Foreign Minister Lavrov also urged those currently acting as the proper authorities in Kiev to curb the activities of the ultranationalist and radical groups that are running rampant throughout Ukraine and terrorizing the Russian-speaking population. The sides agreed to continue to maintain working contacts on Ukrainian issues.
Well known Russian TV presenter Dmitry Kiselyov and the head of the new Russian news agency Rossiya Segodnya, on Sunday during his weekly Vesti Nedeli “News of the Week” program did not mince words when discussing the outcome of the referendum in Crimea and stated that the Russian Federation is the only country that can turn the US into “radioactive ash”and that Americans, knowing this, recognize President Vladimir Putin as strong leader.
Mr. Kiselyov revealed some of the capabilities of Russia’s nuclear defense forces and its nuclear deterrent outlining how Russia’s strategic nuclear missiles would be launched at the United States, even if after a first srike nuclear attack kills all members of the military. He said the Russian weapons management systems are invulnerable as strategic nuclear weapons .
The Indian Nations: a Victory for the Oppressed an end to Colonization
Support for the people of Crimea and for the referendum has come from far and wide and from unexpected sources. There has been wide support from countries such as Serbia and from oppressed peoples worldwide including Indigenous Indian Groups and Nations. An elder of the Mohawk Nation, Kahentinetha Hornhad the following to say about the referendum: “Crimea exercising its right under international law to secede from the Ukraine is good news for colonized peoples everywhere. We can do the same as Scotland, Venice, etc. Quebecois have voted and lost twice to secede from the Corporation of Canada. they have no legal assets such as our un-surrendered land and resources. They can separate from Canada by dissolving their branch corporation.”
“Colonialism is illegal. Future affiliations between freed people and legitimate nations such as Russia must be on an equal basis, no matter the size of the nation, such as Luxembourg, Monaco, etc. In 1923 Chief Deskahe was sent by the Iroquois Confederacy to the Hague to exercise our right to apply for membership in the League of Nations. Canada, US and Britain pressured to have all Indigenous illegally declared as “an internal matter” of the colonists who invaded us.”
“President Vladimir Putin protected the right of Crimeans to decide one way or the other. Crimeans, with help from Russia and Ukraine, finally killed colonialism. They can take credit for being in the forefront of the greatest movement for freedom and equality for Indigenous people worldwide.”
Obama Lies and Lies and Lies
As expected US officials continue to state that they refuse to recognize the referendum in Crimea as legitimate. Surprisingly, knowing that the coup in Ukraine was organized by the US/CIA/NATO in order to (among other reasons) transfer ownership of the gas pipeline from Russia into Europe to Exxon Oil and station NATO missiles on Ukrainian territory, they say they support the “independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.” The hypocrisy of their bald-faced lies is historic in its depth and transparency.
According to Daniel McAdams at infowars dot com at least 56% of the American population are against any US intervention or meddling in Ukraine. But just as a majority of the population in Crimea and Ukraine mean nothing to Obama, he continues to desperately bumble around smashing everything in his path and push his illegal takeover of Ukraine and the support of his unelected US installed puppet leaders. This is understandable as I have said many times before because as Victoria Nuland stated in December, the US has spent $5 billion in overthrowing Ukraine.
Thanks to thousands of leaks, including those by Anonymous Ukraine, Western meddling in Ukraine has been revealed on multiple levels, including the hiring ofsnipers to kill police AND demonstrators on Maidan Nezalezhnosti Square, the determining of the makeup of the government before the coup (conversation between Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt), the presence of Blackwater mercenaries, request by Yarosh for weapons support from a Crimean Muslim extremist underground and even a false flag military attack on an air base in Ukraine, yet the subservient western corporate media refuses to publish or allow debate on these issues and continues to blindly, obtusely and egregiously publish lies as truth. Just like the supposed Russian invasion which never existed they continue to demonize Russia and President Putin to no end.
Obama Protects His Crimes, Will Seize Your Property
Obama the dictator has declared a national security emergency when it comes to Ukraine which will allow him to seize the property of anyone who questions his position on Ukraine. We know that in the US “national security” only means protecting criminals in power and keeping Obama and his cabal out of prison where they belong. According to above top secret dot com he has also declared war on China.
Infowars writes: “Be careful what you say. Be careful what you write. President Obama has just given himself the authority to seize your assets.
According to the president’s recent Executive Order, “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine” (first reported by WND’s Aaron Klein), the provisions for seizure of property extend to “any United States person.” That means “any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.”
Declaring a “national emergency” over the planned referendum in Crimea to determine whether or not to join Russia, the US president asserts that asset seizure is possible for any US person “determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State”:
(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following:
(A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine;
(B) actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine; or
(C) misappropriation of state assets of Ukraine or of an economically significant entity in Ukraine;
The Executive Order is, as usual, so broadly written that it leaves nearly everything open to interpretation.”
Larouchpub dot com goes even further with regard to the executive order calling Obama’s move a “Dictatorship for War”. “… the President has moved one giant step closer to declaring an outright dictatorship over the United States. Obama has put himself in a state of “pre-impeachment,” declared Lyndon LaRouche on March 6.His actions also moved the world precariously closer to a military confrontation between the United States and Russia that could lead to thermonuclear World War III. The biggest obstacle to war prevention, LaRouche further warned in discussion with colleagues on March 8, is the cowardice and Wall Street-induced corruption of the U.S. Congress, which is the main obstacle to Obama’s immediate removal from office via impeachment or by invoking the 25th Amendment. By invoking a National Emergency via Executive Order Obama violated the law by failing to present any findings of fact backing his declaration of emergency.”
“According to senior U.S. intelligence sources, the Joint Chiefs of Staff had delivered their own recommendations and findings to the President and the National Security Council earlier last week, concluding that the U.S. did not have any direct strategic interests in the Crimean region of Ukraine, but that the Russians certainly did. The Chiefs noted that the United States had treaty obligations to NATO allies, but that Ukraine is not a NATO member. Russia has vital strategic interests in the Crimea, centered on its Black Sea Fleet base at Sevastopol, which is leased to Russia for the next 30 years, under a 1990s treaty with Ukraine. Sevastopol and the Black Sea are Russia’s only access to the Mediterranean.”
“JCS Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey reiterated the Pentagon’s view in a lengthy interview March 7 with PBS NewsHour. Dempsey emphasized that the Ukraine dispute must be resolved diplomatically, candidly warning, in response to a question from Judy Woodruff, that the crisis could lead to war. Sources have emphasized that, for the Pentagon, cooperation with Russia is vital to the planned U.S. and NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan this year. Forty percent of the troop and equipment withdrawal is conducted along the “northern route” through Central Asia and Russia. There are other vital areas of cooperation, including the ongoing P5+1 negotiations with Iran, the war on drugs and terrorism, and the Syrian and North Korean situations, which require Russian-American cooperation.”
According to Obama’s own executive order he must seize all of his own assets and those of Victoria Nuland, her boss John Kerry, CIA Director John Brennan, NATO head Anders Rasmussen, the heads of Blackwater, Vitaly Klitschko, Dmitry Yarosh, Arseny Yatsenyuk, Oleh Tyahnybok, the heads of USAID, the Endowment for Democracy, all NGOs previously operating in Ukraine, the heads of Exxon Oil and German companies that were to obtain mines and other Ukrainian property and all members and owners of media that continue to make their illegal activities possible. Why? Read the wording of Obama’s directive: according to Obama anyone determined to: “be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following: (A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine; (B) actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine; or (C) misappropriation of state assets of Ukraine or of an economically significant entity in Ukraine.” This describes perfectly what Obama and company were doing.
If organizing an armed coup and then the following division of the assets of the country do not fall into these categories as well then I do not know what would. But then again the West has gone completely off the reservation judging by their irrational behavior and their hypocrisy in Ukraine and has lost all sight of reason and elementary determination between wrong and right. One thing can be said, Obama and his cabal have taken transparency in government to a new level, because it is crystal clear, they have completely lost it.
The real national security emergency in the US is the fact that their leader is ready to start WWIII and has destroyed the credibility and the reputation of the US on almost every level. But then again Obama obviously has other things on his mind, more important than the American people and the matter at hand. Maybe that is why he was laughing it up at Nelson Mandela’s funeral and why he is supporting nazis in Ukraine? No Martin Luther King this one. Perhaps we should politely ask him to place his Nobel Peace Prize at the grave of 21 year old Maxim Tretiak, one of the many unarmed police and Berkut members who were killed by his snipers, or at the grave of any of the thousands of children he killed with his weekly drone strikes? Never mind. Just as he laughed at Nelson Mandela and the Nobel Committee, I am sure he would laugh at us for asking such a thing.
