Mass pro-Russian, anti-fascist, anti-Kiev junta, march in the second largest city of Ukraine, #Kharkov (former capital of Ukraine). Demonstrators, many women, marched to the Russian consulate, chanting: “Kharkov is a Russian city,” “Novorossia,” “Kharkov, rise up,” “Fascism won’t pass,” ‘Kharkov against Kiev junta,” “Poroshenko is fascist,” “Donbass, we are with you,” “Slavyansk – a hero,” and “Russia.” This comes on the heels of the Kiev junta’s bombing of Donbass with UN banned chemical weapon – white phosphorus, and violent attack by Ukraine extremists on the Russian embassy in Kiev.

Note, in the past couple of months, the people of Kharkov were being actively intimidated by the Kiev junta authorities – activists kidnapped and killed, people’s jobs and businesses threatened. This is why the protests in Kharkov and nearby industrial city of Dnepropetrovsk had seemingly died down. However, the latest events made people forget their fears and rise again.
This is a comment someone posted on YT in Russian: “у меня есть много там знакомых…говорят так мы бы поднялись…но по ночам ходят и выкрадывают народ активный….ждут когда Донбасс пойдет в атаку на КУев…” Translation: “I have many friends in Kharkov. They tell me they would rise, but at night Kiev nazis go around, kidnapping activists. Everyone is waiting for the Donbass lead to take Kiev back (from Kiev junta/ ukro-fascists).”
Note, YouTube terminated Anna-News, the news service that posted these videos for “multiple third-party copyright claim violations.” I know for an absolute fact that they had none as all of their material was their own authentic interviews. Someone keeps filing bogus claims against them for telling the truth. At the time of termination AnnaNews YT Channel had 129,000 subscribers. Sorry, had to delete the videos.
Interview with Kharkov activist: “It was quiet in Khrakov until they attacked Russian embassy. Everyone wanted to be here. People were coordinating the date and time in the social media – it was a social media storm. What happened in Kiev was a planned provocation by the Kiev junta and Americans. We won’t let anything like that happen here. We came here to express our solidarity with Russia.”
Rally in Kharkov before Russian Consulate: “Sorry we were unable to stop the attack on the Russian embassy in Kiev. Fascism, as history shows, will never win. We’ll get rid of fascism on our land. We are Slavs and we are with Russia.”
“We demand Kiev stops killing our people. We demand the world community hears us, as we are speaking today for the entire Ukraine and the entire South-East.”
The newly elected president of Ukraine Petro #Poroshenko promised to stop military operation in the east of Ukraine (Donbass and Lugansk) and to create humanitarian corridors so people could leave the areas being bombed by his troops. In reality, the opposite is happening.
The city in ruins: below is eyewitness video report about last night’s bombing of #Slavyansk, the long-suffering city in #Donetsk Republic that takes the brunt of the Kiev junta attacks. With English subs, which are not very good, but you can get the idea.
I’ve added my own translation to help in understanding what they are talking about. This is a quick translation. Apologies if it’s not polished enough. My time is limited, but I felt this was too important and needed to be posted.
“As a result of the last night’s shelling of the residential areas near city center, one woman was killed, another heavily injured. The shelling was highly concentrated, and it targeted the purely residential area.”
A woman says: “Poroshenko has blood on his hands. These are the worst rulers we have ever had. Killing young people, children. He thinks he will be forgiven? He is up to his neck in blood. Damn him. We should go to Kiev and do the same to him. With all his ill-gotten wealth. Damn oligarch. Tell him that. Idiot. Mainly retirees live here. No gas, no electricity. Americans want our land, that’s why they make war. That’s all.”
Man: “All doors have been blown off. Nothing is left in most apartments. All apartments are standing open. Who is going to guard our possessions?’
Militia man to cameraman: “Don’t show me, I am not that interesting. Show how they are shooting at civilians.”
“Stray dogs follow us everywhere we go because they are afraid of bombings too. They know they are safer with us.”
Woman: “They (Kiev junta – LR) have no conscience if they shoot civilians, and destroy the peaceful city. We lived peacefully; the old wanted to die in peace, the young wanted to grow in peace. Where is that Europe now? Let them see what’s really going on here. How they bomb us from planes. Ukraine hides this reality from the world. Ukraine doesn’t want this to be seen… Boys, quickly, hide behind the house.”
Man: “There are only two of us left on this street, because we have nowhere to go.” Woman: “Terrible.” Man:” We’ll survive somehow.”
A simple woman about junta, oligarchs, Americans, and who and why started the civil war in Ukraine: “We are tired of this senseless war, one people – against each other. They (Kiev junta, oligarchs – LR) want riches. They can’t take any riches to another world. The only difference when you die is that some will have richer coffins than others. Those idiots wanted power and riches and that’s why they have started this war. Americans, I am sure, are happy. Americans are dreaming about a war in Europe. They think they are far away and safe, meanwhile, they’ll do good business selling arms to the warring factions. Europe to them is disposable.”
Some of these people spoke Russian and some Ukrainian, yet they all said the same thing.
As Kiev intensifies its punitive military operation against what it insists is part of the Ukrainian population, US and EU deny the atrocities. The body count grows as apartment blocks, hospitals and kindergartens get bombed, as people have to hide in cellars and parents are desperate to save their children. In the past weeks the Kiev military did not allow the refugees to leave the country. If a bus or car approached the border, they would turn them around or shoot at them. Per reports, the Kiev military would laugh at crying women and children attempting to escape the war by saying: “Go back where you belong, and we’ll get you there.”
The Kiev junta is without a doubt a stellar example of a truly democratic regime, and that’s why it is 100% supported and happily financed by the US and EU!
After Russia raised hell in the UN about all this, insisting that a humanitarian corridor for water, food, supplies and to let out the women and children is needed, it appears Kiev loosened its grip on the border, allowing the children to leave.
You would think this were World War II!
Below is a footage of a bus with children being evacuated from #Slavyansk, accompanied by the sound of bombings. Russian: Автобусы с детьми покидают Славянск под звук бомбардировок.
The video is self-explanatory.
The hand-scribbled sign on the front of the bus reads: DETI – Children. The sign near the bus in the end of the video reads: Ukr pilots are fascist killers.
The woman’s voice in the background: “Turchinov and the Kiev junta are taking away our children. It is because of them our children have to leave while bombs explode. I wish their own children would experience horror such as this till the end of their days. What they are doing to us, I wish the same to them.”
From the SBU sources (Security Services of Ukraine) it is known that the US signaled to the prez-elect of Ukraine, oligarch Poroshenko, that “if 2-3 thousand of eastern Ukraine people are killed during punitive operation, the world won’t even flinch. We can handle it as long as eastern Ukraine is cleared of “separatists” so everything is quiet for Poroshenko’s inauguration.”
The punitive military op against Donbass therefore has to be handled expeditiously so it’s over by the time Poroshenko “ascends to his throne” as a “legitimate president of Ukraine” – blameless and clean.
Watch the video!
Here is a report in English about the refugee camps set up for the people of eastern Ukraine (#Donbass) in Russia. The orphans are the highest risk as the areas where orphanages are located get bombed, and food and water supplies run low in the cities that get attacked by the Kiev junta. It has to be noted that there are American, British, French, Georgian, Spanish, Polish, Lithuanian and other mercenaries that have been seen among the Kiev military attacking eastern Ukraine -#Donetsk and #Lugansk Republics. US has officially announced that it would train the Kiev military.
Video report: G7 meeting: West threatens Russia with more sanctions IF Russia doesn’t stop supporting east Ukraine (apparently letting those people die!), while US promises to train Ukraine military (evidently for more skilled punitive operations against the East!).

I simply had to post this video! It is addressed to the American people by a well-known musician from #Kharkov, #Ukraine, Filip Vartan Melkhizedek, and it has gone viral on Youtube. This is a well-informed, yet at the same time mystical & pacifist call from someone who is in the middle of it all. Filip is a Ukrainian citizen with Armenian roots, who as many, identifies with the Greater Russian culture. Unfortunately, since March when this video was first published, much happened in Ukraine – and the situation continues spiraling out of control. Read the rest of this entry
