Q: What would you like to say to our foreign viewers from Europe, America, Canada?
"If you have a chance to get in touch with us, residents of Donbass - territory considered to be 'seized by militants', don't miss the opportunity.
We are no 'separatists' and no 'militants', as we were declared to be to the whole world. We are just people who fight for their freedom and right to have their own opinions, that's all.
I'd like to thank those who support and help us. I know there are many people who didn't stay indifferent to this misfortune. Many thanks for helping us..."
DPR Deputy Vladislav Brig - 'Donbass Will Not Return To Ukraine'
"When we went to the dialogue in March 2014, we would have agreed to the establishment of a Federation. But it was trampled with a boot. This included Ukrainian tanks and Grads falling on our houses. How many of our people have been killed?
And so today how can we tell the relatives of our dead that we are going back to those who brought them so much grief?"

DPR Head Zakharchenko: Press Conference (Feb 1)
"...As everyone knows, as of today, Ukraine is chairing the UN Security Council for a month. And the escalation of the conflict is directly related to this. Kiev needs a political motive which they will try to play to their advantage.
I believe this is the [final] agony of the Kiev regime. If you remember WWII, people used to say: 'This is the last bite of the dying fascist vermin.' This is the last chance Poroshenko has to hope the world community pays attention to him. But he will not succeed..."

'All military units have been put on the highest possible level of alert,' the statement reads. 'The enemy will have no opportunity to make use of the situation and violate our borders..."
What is not mentioned here is the role played by Canada s special forces in Ukraine, engaged in training? mission?
Were they not aware? Didi they not report on the plot to our Embassy in Kiev?
I'm struck with a certain parallel with us. We have our own "Donbass" We're helping Kiev militarily crush their "Quebec" which only wanted autonomy. Its Trudeau, Freeland and our pro-Kiev lobby. and our "commitment".
Well Aleksandr Khodakovsky had a good idea where some of the threat came from.
Guess they didn't take his advice this time.
Donbass Bids Farewell to Hero: Roughly 200,000 flock to slain leader's funeral
"...According to DPR Deputy PM Dmitry Trapeznikov, who was appointed acting head of the republic, law enforcement agencies have already detained several suspects in the blast, who confirmed the Kiev government's involvement. Earlier the security service of Ukraine (SBU) denied any role in the blast."
Maybe so, but he wrote the letter to the Russian authorities and posted it. Or are we going to have a Trumpian denial of that too? The article doesn't even mention other attempt, like Pavel Gubarev being shot at and drive into a tree.
There is also the coup that happened next door in Luhansk last winter, and threats made at the same time against Donetsk.
Thanks for this...any intelligent reading of the Canada Supreme Court decision concerning conditions guaranteeing the right to self determination,(for Quebec)could only accept the right of the Donetsk people to sovereignty.
Minsk Accords, already agreed to and in fact a UN Security Council resolution are the way forward but Kyiv refuses to implement. Wacko Ukraine is the real problem here not Donbass which simply wishes to be left alone.

Lugansk People's Republic May 2019 Anti-Nationalist Roundtable
"On May 2nd the civic organization 'Memorial' and the Federation of Trade Unions in LPR held an international roundtable at the Russian Word Hall in Lugansk. It commemorated the 2014 tragedy at the Trade Union Building in Odessa in which Kiev reported 48 people killed and over 200 injured, and the genocide in Donbass that followed it that Kiev is reporting [with] 13,000 casualties.
The expert panel discussed the reasons why such criminal acts happened as well as steps that need to be taken to make sure it doesn't happen again. The one point all the participating experts agree on is without Ukrainian nationalism, none of this would have transpired. They discussed the grossly apparent parallels between Nazi ideology in the 1930s and Ukraine in the twenty-first century and how this is ignored in Europe and the west..."
