DNR and LNR want unified armed forces
Summary of the most important events for September 16, 2014 by Dmytro Tymchuk
1. Terrorist organizations DNR and LNR [Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics] have declared the establishment of ‘united armed forces of Novorossiya [New Russia]’ with single ‘chief commander’.
They can easily create even intergalactic Starship forces, because the title ‘unified armed forces’ sounds too luxurious for this group of drug addicts and criminals. This is not the case. The fact is that Russian militants in Donbas are fed up with falling under ‘friendly’ mortar firing of drunk fighters, that is why they press on Moscow and their ‘allies’ to give them single control of the gangs. The recent artillery shelling of Russian reconnaissance group near Debaltsevo has become the last drop.
The establishment of unified commandment solves the task of at least minimal interaction of Russian terrorist troops. This is bad for Ukraine because in this case the effectiveness of enemy’s activity will increase significantly.
Nevertheless, who can guarantee that Donbas criminals and riffraff, who are not used to discipline, would play the rules in reality, not on the words. There every one considers himself a leader and Clausewitz.
2. Despite the agreements with EU and Ukraine signed on September 12, Russia intends to impose duties on Ukrainian goods.
They said in Ministry of Economic Development of Russian Federation: the government of RF is to adopt a resolution on the imposing of duties and only then postpone its application if Kyiv and Brussels fulfil their promise to postpone the implementation of Association Agreement in part of free trade zone.
That is one more reason to make sure that we need to make every possible effort so that Russia finds itself farther that Zimbabwe in terms of economic cooperation with us. Export and import dependence on Moscow might exist only in terms of purchase of balalaika and matreshka. Everything else should be considered as a crime against economic security of Ukraine.
