Russia-installed “authorities” may hold another “referendum” in occupied Donbas

The previous “referendum” in May 2014 was not recognized by Ukraine and the international community.

The so-called “leader” of the self-proclaimed “Donetsk People’s Republic” (“DPR”), Denis Pushilin, says another “referendum on self-determination” could be held in the Russia-occupied part of Ukraine’s Donetsk region.

He announced this in a comment for the Russian news agency RIA Novosti.

Pushilin claims it will testify to the “mechanism of direct democracy.” This is the way the Russia-controlled terrorist organization wants to draw the world’s attention to the “commitment of Donbas to full respect for the norms and principles of international law.”

“It was for this purpose that readiness was expressed to assist any international observers if a decision is made to conduct the procedure to express, or to be more precise, to confirm the will of the people of Donbas,” he said.

Earlier developments in Donbas

  • Ukrainian journalist Serhiy Harmash, who is one of Ukraine’s delegates to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) on the settlement of the Donbas crisis, says that OSCE representatives, seeking to please the Russian Federation, let “advisers” to the Russia-installed “authorities” be present at a recent meeting of the TCG political subgroup.
  • The previous “referendum” in Donbas was held way back at the beginning of the Russian occupation of the region in May 2014. The then “expression of will” had no signs of free expression of will, therefore it was not recognized either by Ukraine or by the international community.

    Why doesn’t Putin’s puppet and asslicker just say what everyone with half a brain has known for 6 years. The state sponsors of terrorism have no intention of abiding by Minsk or any other agreement. Your “referendum” will no doubt be based on the Crimean formula, referendum at gunpoint. You will invite “independent” observers like Ukippers and other pro Russian trash that will crawl out from under their rocks to observe Putin’s next democratic act.

        • Getting booted off Twitter is an honor. The place is a hot bed of the extreme left calling for violence against anyone that does not hold with their lies.

          It might be helpful to your arguments if you learned what a Nazi really is. There was a reason that Stalin saw Hitler as “the icebreaker of the revolution.”

            There are Nazis everywhere though, it doesn’t matter if they are on Parler or Twitter. Where there is free speech there will be Nazis. Free speech also facilitates rebuttals so fight fire with fire.

              • Redders, like all thinkers, I theorise. But I don’t present theories about the alt-right; only the factual information that they themselves provide. National socialism is indeed a leftist ideology, as the name suggests. It is simply socialism with added racism and xenophobia. However, the alt-right themselves identify as right wing, so it doesn’t matter how you see them. It is why Molotov-Ribbentrop was so easy: it’s an alliance of like-minded people, regardless of whether each sees themselves as left or right. They are built on hate, anti-semitism, lies, envy and totalitarianism.
                The alt-right phenomenon was embraced by the vile putlerite pig Alex Jones, who sees himself as a conservative and friend of Trump. It was probably founded by Richard B Spencer; an out-and-out nazi and putlerite; not to be confused with Robert B Spencer; the founder of Jihad Watch and a colleague of Pamela Geller, who both do great work combating muzloid extremism. Not coincidentally they are anti-putler.
                Alt-right have a house mag: Breitbart, which is run by Steve Bannon; a filthy putlerite pardoned by Trump along with Ukraine’s mortal enemies Stone and Manafort.
                You can’t argue with these facts Redders; they are undeniable, not theories.

                • My point was your root of everything bad on earth is from the Alt Right. You have a catalog of bad actors from this mythical Alt Right but I don’t recall many present day bad actors from the Left, the majority of bad actors today in my opinion. If I keep hanging with you, my vocabulary will inevitably improve 🙂

                  • The alt-right isn’t mythical; it is hard fact. I loathe equally the far right and far left because in fact they are one and the same : totalitarian bastards. This is why those that identify as far left and far right all love putler without exception. Show me an extremist who identifies on either far end of the spectrum and I guarantee he/she will be a piece of putinoid scum.

                      Btw I watched half of Navalny’s video last night and hope to finish it later. It is an astonishing piece of work.

              • Nope Red, alt right, alt left, extremists from both sides need liquidating, they are the mortal enemy of democracy, in my view they are all nazis. My solution would be to round up these extremists from both sides, line them up against a wall and fire away. I think the US could be cured of extremism in a very short time.

                  • David Duke, Alex Jones, Richard B Spencer, Andrew Anglin; all support violence. Ron and Rand Paul don’t publicly support violence, but they are high priests of the alt-right and are kremlin agents. How do I know that? Because a trusted source said so. That source being John McCain. Note that the Pauls did not sue him for that. They probably saw it as a compliment.
                    If you are alt-right, you support violence by definition. Therefore I would include Stone, Manafort, Bannon, Flynn, Michael Savage, Tucker Carlson, Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham on that list.

                      I also don’t get why you are trying to defend the alt-right? They are all without exception scum who love putler.

                    • No intended hostility bro, I just believe the Alt Left is more destructive and deserve more scrutiny. I certainly wouldn’t think that means I am defending the Alt Right. I would assume murder is worse than propaganda?

                    • Supporters of mass murder are no better than the murderers themselves. Now that is an opinion Redders, not a fact. But mostly I try to stick with facts.
                      The alt-left in Britain is stronger than the alt-right, (in Britain) since it includes the ex-leaders of two political parties : the Scots Nats and the Labour Party. In America it is different: the alt-right is much stronger, since it consists of many big names I already gave you.
                      The dominant strains of the far left in America (as I see it as an outsider) consist of college professors, the Pelosi wing of the Dems, the Bernie/‘squad’ commie wing of the Dems, the Marxist street thugs (blm/antifa) and the race hustlers (Obama, Sharpton and the new guy from Georgia: Raphael Warnock). These are all very unpleasant indeed, but as far as I know they are not putlerites. If you know better, let me know?
                      The Chomsky wing of the college profs are definitely putlerites though.
                      If I am wrong about this, please let me know?

  • How about a monthly referendum? Have a referendum every month. Or, maybe even a weekly referendum.
    It matters not how many referendums the shit sausages hold, Donbass is Ukrainian. Period.
