Protocol on ceasefire signed, republics still want to separate from Ukraine
Summary of the most important events for September 5, 2014 by head of Centre of Military and Political Studies and coordinator of Information Resistance group Dmytro Tymchuk.
1. During negotiations of contact group between representatives of Ukraine, DNR, LNR with participation of OSCE there was signed a protocol on ceasefire from 06.00 pm September 5, 2014. As planned, further negotiations must be conducted in terms of armistice.
This could be attributed to good news, if it were not for separatist leaders who hurried to say: the ceasefire doesn’t mean that the policy of DNR [Donetsk People’s Republic] and LND [Luhansk People’s Republic] on disconnection form Ukraine is to be changed.
This is difficult to comment. Everyone knows that Putin is not going to let go of Donbas that is why the ceasefire can be only temporary – there is little hope for peaceful regulation of the conflict. If only we decide to say goodbye to Donbas and later to another 6 oblasts.
2. According to ‘Information Resistance’ group the situation in areas liberated from terrorists remains far from stable. Yesterday’s separatists – terrorists and their supporters appear everywhere, from small local official and criminals to law enforcement officers who have remained unpunished for their treason.
All this rag-tag was relieved to see hat nobody was going to arrest them and require answers for what they had done. And now they begin to commit crimes (yet still secretly). If special services and Ministry of Internal affairs don’t begin to take measures urgently – we’ll soon be unpleasantly surprised to see that all the achievements of local victories can be lost.
3. Czech president Milos Zeman doesn’t consider the actions of Russia in Eastern Ukraine to be aggression. According to him several hundreds of ‘Russian volunteers can’t be regarded Russian invasion’. ‘We must honestly admit tht there’s civil war in Ukraine’, – this aging miracle blurted out.
We, Ukrainians, have got used to political prostitution in our political environment. Bu Czech president now shows the aster-class to political prostitutes. Because recently Mr. Zeman argued that Western countries would have to take ‘serious measures’ up to sending NATO troops ‘if Russia tires to capture new territory in Ukraine’. ‘I’m not a fighting hawk, but an attempt to seize eastern territories of Ukraine – this is line that mustn’t be crossed for me’, – he would say.
Yes, Mr. Zeman is definitely not a fighting hawk, and even not a chicken. He rather resembles some reptile. It is good that a large number of Czechs do not share these statements of Putin admirer.
