Ukrainian Kozaks Rap Against Sultan Putin’s Invasion

In 1676, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Mehmed IV, sent a haughty ultimatum to the Ukrainian Kozaks, commanding them to submit. The proud Kozaks, defenders of the Ukrainian land, composed a famous reply, full of defiance, fierce independence and scathing humor, ridiculing the Sultan and his demands. They addressed him as “damned Devil’s kin, secretary to Lucifer, swineherd of Egypt, pig of Armenia, goat-fucker of Alexandria…” and finally, called the Sultan to “kiss our arse”.In 2014, in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Kozaks posted a similar email to today’s evil despot:  Vladimir Putin…

Open Letter To Secretary Hagel On Military Assistance To Ukraine

OPEN LETTER TO SECRETARY HAGEL

June 13, 2014
The Honorable Chuck Hagel
Secretary of Defense
Department of Defense
1400 Defense Pentagon
Washington, DC 20301-1400

Dear Secretary Hagel:

Several friends of mine who are American veterans of Ukrainian ethnic background have suggested that I write to you about tangible non lethal U.S. military assistance to Ukraine. As you know Ukraine had been decimated militarily, initially because of economic woes, corruption, neglect and more deliberately since 2010 through the joint efforts of the Kremlin and the Kremlin’s lackey Ukraine’s former president Viktor Yanukovych. The latest efforts were part of a conspiracy to make Ukraine weak and thus susceptible to Russian psychological pressure, intimidation and even physical force.  Continue reading

“Chechenization” of Ukraine: what for? 

Russia is already spreading the “experience” of occupied Chechnya to Donbas.

Obviously, sending Chechens to the far away and completely disconnected Ukraine was a decision made by the Russian Federation government also with the goal to bury the issue of Russia’ military crimes in Chechnya forever – bury it under the tag of the “bandit people,” which would like nothing more than “to go to war, no matter where and what for.”

The long trace of the unfinished Russian-Chechen War is becoming more and more obvious on the “soil” of Eastern Ukraine. The grievous crimes committed by the Russian military-political forces on Chechen land, which have gone unnoticed by the main international institutions, have “metastasised” first in the aggression against Georgia. And now, with even more rascality, they are being committed in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine.  Continue reading

Help Ukrainian Army: Send First Aid Medicine Kit for Ukrainian Soldiers

medicinekit

Euromaidan activists in Ukraine are finding ways to help the Ukrainian army.

One of the ways to do this is ship a parcel of medical supplies to a recipient in Ukraine that will pass it on to the Ukrainian soldiers in need. The facebook group EuroArmyMaydan is coordinating this process. Due to Ukraine’s customs rules, it is impossible to import them in large quantities and they have to be shipped in small parcels. Anybody that wants to support the Ukrainian army can do so by shipping necessary medical supplies to recipients in Ukraine that will get them to the frontline!

Purchase the following materials via the links and send them to the addresses provided. When you send the parcel make sure that the cost does not exceed 200$ (you can lower it in the declaration) and make sure that they are NOT SPECIFIED AS MEDICAL DEVICES. Continue reading

Putin is unable to destroy Ukrainian-ness, he only enforced it

Nazariy Zanoz

Throughout almost the entirety of the 23 years of independence, the Ukrainians have been constantly repeating mantra-like similar messages, which all come down to the following: in this time nothing has been done essentially for Ukrainity to not only develop, but survive; that there is no national idea; and Russia is advancing on all fronts: linguistic, cultural, economical, and now military and so forth. All of these opinions make one think that the Ukrainian identity is incredibly weak and helpless and will not survive without others’ help.  Continue reading

“Novorossiya? Steppe Ukraine? Northern Black Sea region?” 

Putin remembered Novorossiya 212 years after its disappearance. 

In a TV interview several weeks ago the Russian President Vladimir Putin talked history: “The issue is providing the legal rights and interests of Russians and Russian-speaking citizens of the southeast of Ukraine. I remind you, using the terminology of Tsarist times, this is Novorossiya: Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, Mykolayiv, Odesa were not part of Ukraine in Tsarist times, these are all territories which were given to Ukraine in the 20’s by the Soviet Government. Why they did this, God only knows. This all happened after the respective victories of Potemkin and Catherine II in the famous wars with the centre in Novorossiysk. This is where Novorossiya comes from.”  Continue reading
