Ambitions and old scores of Russia’s historical opponents will help to find a solution to the Ukrainian question
Polands threatens to become the EU’s main problem in 2016, according to Austrian Der Standard publishment. The winning party “Right and Justice” (translated from Russian translation of the original Polish name), that won the majority of votes in the Seim, is nowadays conducting a coup’d’etat, establishing control over all governmental institutions, including the Constitutional Court. The right-winged conservative orientation of Warsaw makes it remember old polish-ukrainian arguements and scores, and claim its rights on the historically Polish lands of Western Ukraine. Russia can “heat” the situation according to her own interests. Dividing Ukraine can help Novorossiya to separate, leaving only a dozen central regions under Kiev’s control.
The “Right and Justice” party under Yaroslav Kachinsky came to power last autumn and completely legally – as a result of democratic elections. After it received the majority of seats in the parliament, it, for the first time in the modern Polish history, formed a single-party government. And this time there was not a single Communist, Socialist or other left-winged party in the Seim. Polish President Andjey Duda – is also from Right and Justice. The total control received by the conservatives of the jurisdictional and executive powers made them to develop their success. According to the Seim-approved law the quorum of the Consitutional Court has been increased from 9 to 13 judges and the decisions will be made not by majority but by ⅔ of the votes. This way, the work of this highest law institution is de-facto paralised.
Right and Justice are “eurosceptics”. Their ideal – is a strong Poland with little influence from the EU, or, if possible with no influence at all. Factually, this is a Polish analogue to the French “National Front”. Also, what makes the Polish conservatives stand out, is their honest-to-god Russophobian attitude. In the setting of absolutely unlimited power, the right-winged conservative ideology will undoubtedly become the main Party Line of Polish foreign policy, and this means, old historical scores will be attempted to be settled, interests and claims of this formerly powerful European country will be revived, as it happened in history before. The neighbours of this new “Grand Duchy of Poland” should brace themselves.
Geopolitics is back on the menu
Polish ambitions were always grandiose. The four divisions this country lived through are living proof of this: only the aggressive defeated suffer such a fate. Nowadays, when the foreign policy is turning out rather nicely for the Polish, it seems, we are to expect some sort of a revanchist movement within Polish governmental circles. Poland is being backed by the “British world” with the U.S. in it’s lead, whose loyal European puppets are Warsaw and London (as yet another eurosceptic and EU’s critic). No longer wishing to serve Germany’s interests, the leader of new non-military eurointegration, Poland dreams of simultaneously play the role of one of the leading European states. This is where Right and Justice triumph’s roots are set.
This was already understood in the EU. Luxemburg’s Foreign Affairs Ministry’s head Jean Asselbourne called what is happening in Poland now “strange and scary”: in his opinion, the attacks on independence of courts, mass media and methods, which are used to do this, are a spit in the face of European principles. “The European Union must explained to the Polish government, without any delay, that you cannot do this”, – says Asselbourne. However, to do this to a legally elected government is unclear. The expulsion of Poland from the EU is not outlined in any of the allied agreements, is what Der Standard reminds us, meaning any threats are useless.
We must note, that Warsaw’s strife to play an increasing role in the international affairs was predicted in Stratfor’s analysis. In 2009 they were claiming that before 2020 Germany, Turkey, Japan and Poland will activate, all of these throughout history marked themselves with the thirst of expansion, but as the result ended up a subject or a satellite of a victorious nation. Demonstration of Merkel’s ambitions, political insanity of Erdogan, new Japanese militarism (that recently permitted the use of Japanese Self-Defense force to operate out of the country), and, last, but not least, ultraright conservative Poland – this is all a sign that the forecast was correct. Geopolitics is back on the menu.
Division of Ukraine
Poland will of course be an antirussian and proamerican country. And this is why she probably won’t be too hostile to the antirussian Kievan regime. “Washington’s forepost” is a “forepost” for both countries. For now, this is so, however the nationalist regimes act out of their own logic. USA’s wishes will only be considered up to a point, and only until Polish interests are considered too. And a fundamental interest of all nationalists is a conquest of all historical “living space”. In the Polish case, this is Western Ukraine. Just a few years ago most analytics couldn’t even guess that something like this could become a reality. Maidan and its consequences weren’t foreseen either.
More to that, the map of a possible Ukrainian divide the Polish media demonstrated over a year ago. This is, of course, not the Sovinformburo (Soviet Informational Buerau, Soviet Union’s mass media organisation), we cannot take everything the Polish media says as an outright truth, but still, it is the sign of true intentions of the Polish government and Polish peoples’ attitudes. According to Polish nationalists, Poland must consume Lviv, Volyn, Ivano-Frankovsk, Ternopol, Rovnensk cities and their districts (oblasts). This isn’t surprising, consingering that Lviv is really a Polish city ethnically, that was given to the USSR in 1939 as per Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. And although the Polish community has thinned out over the decades, the historical memory, especially of Polish-Ukrainian War of 1918-1919, has not dissapeared. This is why Poland was lobbying the creation of a monument to commemorate that war in Lviv “Lviv’s little eagles”. We can say the same about Volyn with it’s famous massacre.
This is also confirmed by the fact that “a Polishman’s card” is being widely spread in those regions. And it was being done for a while now – this law was passed eight years ago. It eases the access through the Polish border and is easily exchanged for a residence permit, overall it Polifies its owner. It really is a Polish passport in its own sense. Because it is unable to give out EU member’s passport just to anyone, Warsaw acts in steps. Already 140 000 Ukrainians own this card. If their interests will suddenly be under threat, Poland wil have a moral right to intervene.
Dreaming about the conquest of those lands, the Polish also thought about other lands and their historical ownership. Chernovitskaya oblast can be given to Romania. Zakarpatskaya – to Hungary. Russia will take back all of Novorossiya (that is all of Kharkhovskaya, Dnepropetrovskaya, Donetskaya, Luganskaya, Zaporozhskaya, Khersonskaya, Nikolaevskaya and Odesskaya oblasts, literalliy half of Ukraine) where the population is vastly ethnically Russian and Russian-speaking, and the economy is traditionally very dependent on Russian clientelle. And Ukraine itself will be left with nine central regions with Kiev as the capital: Zhitomirskaya, Khmelnitskaya, Vinnitskaya, Kievskaya, Chernigovskaya, Cherkasskaya, Kirovogradskaya, Sumskaya and Poltavskaya oblasts. These are historical lands of Kievan Rus. This way, Ukraine will keep all its territories, except those that were gifted to Ukraine the so-much hated in Ukrainian nationalist circles Russian Czars and Soviet leaders.
Such turn of events would be favourable for Russia not only because of Novorossian salvation, but also because of localisation of the insane Ukrainian nationalism in set boundaries. Even the rather ruthless Soviet government that was standing for internationalism in it’s good form couldn’t eradicate it, now, after twenty five years of “independence”, it, while fully stripped of statehood, is still dangerous as ever. If a small Ukrainian country will be created, in it’s natural borders, the lovers of Mova and Vyshivanka will be able to practice their fetishes without any harm to their neighbours, rightfully proud to belong to a Ukrainian nation, and, if they will pull it off, Europe.
The conditions to realise such a scenario or just about right. Nationalist turn in Poland is key. Through making a deal with Warsaw (or may be bypassing it, and talking as equals with the U.S. straight away, to save time), exciting Romanian and Hungarian (and may be even Slovakian and Belorussian) appetites, Russia could solve the Ukrainian crysis for good and for safety of all, including the Ukrainians themselves. But first and foremost for the good and safety of the Russian population of Novorossiya.
Амбиции и старые обиды исторических противников России помогут решить украинский вопрос
Польша грозит стать главной проблемой Евросоюза в 2016 году, беспокоится австрийское издание Der Standard. Получившая большинство в Сейме партия «Право и справедливость» в эти дни фактически совершает переворот, планомерно устанавливая контроль над всеми институтами власти, включая конституционный суд. Правоконсервативная ориентация Варшавы заставляет ее вспомнить старые польско-украинские обиды и претендовать на исторические польские территории Западной Украины. Россия может «подогреть» ситуацию в собственных интересах. Раздел Украины поможет отделиться Новороссии, оставив под властью Киева десяток центральных областей.
Партия «Право и справедливость» под руководством Ярослава Качиньского пришла к власти минувшей осенью совершенно законно — в результате выборов. Заполучив в обеих палатах парламента большинство, она впервые в новейшей истории страны сформировала однопартийное правительство. Причем на этот раз в Сейме начисто отсутствуют левые партии. Президент Польши Анджей Дуда — также выходец из партии «Право и справедливость». Полученный консерваторами тотальный контроль над исполнительной и законодательной властью заставил их развивать успех. Согласно одобренному Сеймом законопроекту кворум конституционного суда увеличен с 9 до 13 судей, решения будут приниматься не большинством, а двумя третями голосов. Таким образом, работа высшей судебной инстанции страны фактически парализована.
«Право и справедливость» — евроскептики. Их идеал — сильная Польша при слабом влиянии Евросоюза, а то и вообще без него. Фактически это польский аналог «Национального фронта» Жан-Мари Ле Пен. Также польские консерваторы отличаются искренней русофобией. В условиях абсолютной власти право-консервативная идеология правящей партии неизбежно станет генеральной внешнеполитической линией Польши как государства, а значит, исторические обиды, интересы и претензии этой некогда мощной страны оживут вновь, как уже не раз бывало в истории. Соседям новой «Речи Посполитой» следует готовиться к худшему.
Геополитика вернулась на авансцену истории
Амбиции Польши всегда были огромны. Доказательство тому — четыре раздела страны: так поступают только с агрессивными побежденными. Сейчас, когда внешнеполитическая конъюнктура стала благоприятствовать, дело, похоже, сдвинулось к реваншу. На стороне Польши «британский» мир — США, чьим верным вассалом является Варшава и Великобритания, как еще один евроскептик и критик ЕС. Не желая больше плясать под дудку Германии, лидера евроинтеграции, Польша одновременно мечтает вновь играть роль одного из ведущих государств Европы. Отсюда и триумф ПиС.
Это уже поняли в Евросоюзе и забили тревогу. Глава МИД Люксембурга (страны-председателя в ЕС) Жан Ассельборн назвал происходящее в Польше «странным и страшным»: по его мнению, атаки на независимость судебной власти, средства массовой информации и методы, которые при этом применяются, — это пренебрежение принципами ЕС. «ЕС должен как можно скорее и способом, не оставляющим сомнений, объяснить польскому правительству, что так поступать нельзя», — волнуется Ассельборн. Однако как это можно сделать в отношении законно избранной власти, пока неясно. Так, исключение Польши из ЕС «не предусмотрено ни в одном из союзных договоров», напоминает Der Standard, а значит, угрозы бесполезны.
Отметим, что стремление Варшавы играть все большую роль в международных делах было предсказано в прогнозе основателя компании геополитического анализа Stratfor Джорджа Фридмана. Еще в 2009 году он уверенно заявил о предстоящей (до 2020 года) активизации таких государств, как Германия, Турция, Япония и Польша. То есть всех тех, кто не раз «отличился» в веках жаждой экспансии, но при этом временно оказался в зависимом положении побежденных. Демонстративные амбиции Меркель, внешнеполитическое буйство Эрдогана, новый милитаризм Японии, разрешившей недавно своей Самообороне действовать вне страны, и вот, наконец, правоконсервативная Польша — все свидетельствует о том, что Фридман оказался талантливым прогнозистом. Геополитика вернулась на авансцену истории.
We should never lose sight of the fact that it was Hitler who decided to attack Russia, a man who never received over 37.5% of the vote in an honest election. From Leningrad to Crimea over 25 million soviet citizens died. The Russians faced not only the Wehrmacht but a brutal dictator, Joseph Stalin who was also a Jesuit Priest from Georgia who played chess with Hitler at the Tavistock Institute in London, a part of history not many want to talk about. Adolf still seems to have a rock solid fan base on the web and all I can say to them is may the flames of hell wrap around each of them slowly. Both Stalin and Hitler were two historical figures I would not recommend taking home to meet mom. Hitler did not want to attack Britain and is on record as admiring them for the way they subjugated India. He felt Russia to be a quick victory on the order of France.
Once 6th Army’s 51st Corps had crossed the Don River at Luchinsky and Vertyachy, only the beleaguered 62nd and 64th Armies, retreating back towards the city, lay between it and Stalingrad. On Sunday the 23rd of August the Luftwaffe carried out its first air raids against the city.
The raids were devastating, with over 1000 tons of bombs dropped on the first day, destroying the city’s telephone exchange, waterworks, the power station at Betovka, the oil storage site on the Volga and part of the main hospital, as well as large parts of the city’s residential areas. The bombing continued for five days.
The 16th Panzer Division advanced almost unopposed towards the city until it reached Gumrak where resistance began to stiffen. However the division managed to reach the Volga on the evening of the 25th of August at Rynok, to the north of the city. Meanwhile the Russians rapidly began to form Militia Battalions to help defend the city.
Ever since serious protest broke out in Ukraine last year the Western mainstream media, particularly in the United States, has seriously downplayed the fact that the usual suspects – the US/European Union/NATO triumvirate – have been on the same side as the neo-Nazis.
Yulia Timoshenko was fresh out of the joint and in a wheel chair but still screaming for more blood and revolution. It is a tribal thing. This could go right up there with Otto Skorzeny busting the Duce out of jail. That black leather jack has some solid effect. She wants more суворість (austerity) for the Ukraine! She has accepted treatment for her back problems from no other than Frau Merkel of the EU Reich. Dad would have been proud watching his daughter take over the EU like he had planned on behalf of Rothschild.
Yeah the Czech President says his neighbors to the south are making him a little nervous marching around at night with torches and chains.
In the U.S. it’s been virtually unmentionable. I’m sure that a poll taken in the United States on this issue would reveal near universal ignorance of the numerous neo-Nazi actions, including publicly calling for death to “Russians, Communists and Jews.” But in the past week the dirty little secret has somehow poked its head out from behind the curtain a bit.
Seventy-one years ago, 600 Poles were murdered by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) in what is now Bazaltovoye. The massacre marked the beginning of ethnic cleansing in what is now western Ukraine, where tens of thousands of Poles were killed within a few months. Today the political successor of the UPA celebrates this mass murder as one of the “greatest victories over the Polish-German occupation.”
Over 100,000 Poles were massacred by Stepan Banderas’ who sought to eliminate the Polish element in western Ukraine. You have to wonder exactly why some Poles would be volunteering for bombing runs over the Ukraine now days. Perhaps the best guess is Poland wants to regain their lost imperial empire which includes western Ukraine. There is one thing with the poles you can almost depend on, they will get it wrong most times. The same might be surmised concerning the Nordic countries who are surrounding the lager around Sweden who well may have aspirations concerning the lost Swedish empire which was torched by Peter the Great of Russia.
A Polish woman meets the Bandera Nazis
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Eichwede and Prof. Jan Phillip Reemtsma citing Russian historian and German sources, say that more than a million children were conceived in Russia, most because of rape. Based on biological realities it can be said statistically that about one in ten sexual intercourse resulted in a pregnancy. Consequently, it must be assumed that approximately 10 million rapes were committed by German soldiers alone on Russian soil.
We are told the tsar’s daughters were brutally raped in WWI
Fortunately, we now know the identities of the six Jewish assassins who were involved in this historic crime. In overall charge of the operation was the Jew Sverdlov. He had five Jewish henchman-Yurovsky, Goloshchekin, Syromolotov, Safarov, Voikov-who not only took part in the actual murder of the family but are reported to have sexually violated the Tsar’s four beautiful daughters, described here as “these pure, enchanting young girls.”
There is some discussion out there concerning whether the Tsar’s daughters were raped. It seems to come from an English speaking tutor who was locked into a cabin nearby the girls.
“This is a thought that I just haven’t been able to get out of my head. In King and Wilson’s Fate of the Romanovs, there is an account on page 140-141 by Gibbes about the Grand Duchesses on Rus. . .
“The abuse reached a crescendo as the night wore on. Gibbes, locked away in his cabin, listened helplessly, as he later told his son George, as the drunken guards harassed the Grand Duchesses. ‘It was dreadful, what they did,’ the former tutor recalled. The ‘terrified screams’ of the girls, Gibbes said, haunted him ‘to the end of his life.”

The Nanking Massacre or Nanjing Massacre, also known as the Rape of Nanking, is a mass murder and war rape that occurred during the six-week period following the Japanese capture of the city of Nanjing (Nanking), the former capital of the Republic of China, on December 13, 1937 during the Second Sino-Japanese War. During this period, hundreds of thousands of Chinese civilians and disarmed soldiers were murdered and 20,000–80,000 women were raped by soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army.
