Kiev Junta Implosion: Ukraine Deputy Defence Minister and Other High-Profile Defections to Lugansk and Donetsk
Kiev Junta Implosion: Ukraine Deputy Defence Minister and other high-profile insiders defect to Lugansk and Donetsk.
In the past few days, there was a wave of elite defections from Kiev to Donbass. The highest profile was the defection of General Александр Коломиец (Alexandr Kolomiyets), ex-deputy defence minister of Ukraine and a number of senior officers. They joined the Donetsk Republic.
He also said that his family had death threats and he had to secretly move them from Kiev. He also said that many of his former colleagues call him to ask how they could defect as well; however, they are afraid for their families’ lives. His prediction is that soon there will be an exodus from Kiev and many would want to come back to Donbass.
He spoke with many of the generals and they all are against this war. But since anyone who disagrees could be arrested, kidnapped or worse, killed, they just sit quietly. Mostly, the war is conducted by nazis and criminals, he said, not by regular troops.
Also defected to Lugansk Republic:
Oleg Chernousov, Head of the Lugansk Oblast Customs Services (position occupied on the Kiev junta side), citing the impossibility of working with the illegal junta full of bandits and killers of peaceful citizens: Press Conference
Brothers Miroshnichenko, both originally from Lugansk: one was an officer of external intelligence services of Ukraine and another – a diplomat, who worked at the Ukraine embassy in Paris: Press Conference
During their press conference brothers explained that they were preparing for the defection for quite some time, as they had to coordinate their simultaneous escape from Paris and Kiev, as well as get their families out of harms way. They returned to their native Lugansk, where they also have family, because they couldn’t work for the junta that was killing their people. The attitude towards those who are originally from Donbass is very bad in Ukraine and Kiev, they said, and they were treated as second class citizens, despite their positions.
They also said that many colleagues want to follow them, but most are either afraid or hope to stay for another year or two till they get their pensions, and then return (LR: big mistake!). They also predict an upcoming avalanche of defections from the Kiev junta as people get fed up.
The intelligence officer also discussed MH17. He said that they were never advised who really shot down the plane, but the entire Ukraine’s intelligence was strictly instructed to construct a narrative blaming Russia and concoct bogus evidence that Russia shot down MH17.
LR: As the junta’s end nears, more and more of those who work for it today, will see the writing on the wall. The rats will start abandoning the ship. It all goes according to plan. By 2016-2018, Ukraine will be a different country, according to predictions.
Let’s recall that I also predicted in 2014 that Ukraine army would retain allegiances to the USSR and Russia, and it will not want to fight against their own people. Unfortunately, the fascist regime in power, supported by the US and EU, successfully intimidated and pulled the wool over many people’s eyes. Nevertheless, people are starting to awaken and we see some movement in the right direction.
