Think about it! Rustem Umerov has been appointed new Minister of Defense by Zelensky.

โ˜๏ธ 41 years old, Umerov was born in the city of Samarkand in Uzbekistan into a family of deported Crimean Tatars.

As Crimeans, like Ukrainians, were ๐จ๐ฉ๐ฉ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ๐ž๐, ๐๐ž๐ฉ๐จ๐ซ๐ญ๐ž๐ and ๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ซ๐ฏ๐ž๐ under decades of Soviet occupation.

๐Ÿ’ก Umerov previously worked in finance & diplomacy and notably helped negotiate exchanges of political prisoners and Prisoners of War.

Persecution of the Crimean Tatars resumed after 2014. Some leaders were harassed, and one was even sent to a psychiatric hospital, a well known KGB tactic to torment dissidents. https://www.rferl.org/a/crimea-umerov-psychiatric-treatment-outcry-human-rights-russia-ukraine/27943461.html


  1. Wow that is stunning. Itโ€™s wonderful. Wonder now how the scum sucking orcs (including the Trumps of the world) going to spin this.

  2. Some people said Zel was an idiot comedian.

    • Ram-Ass-Wamy, like all putinoid scum is an anti-Semite who uses insulting language like accusing Pence and Christie of placing โ€œtheir pope Zelenskyโ€ over American lives.
      Furthermore, he said that Zel should go back to his โ€œcomedy sets.โ€ Thus revealing his hatred of the Jewish president and the entire Ukrainian people, who he wants to hand over to fucking savages.

  3. A Jewish leader and a Muslim defense minister.
    What kind of knuclehead Naizs are these Ukrainians anyway?
    I am beginning to think all that big talk about Denazification was just some papaganda smoke screen after all.

  4. Hmm, I don’t like that Reznikov is no longer defense minister as he is awesome.
    But of course I wish his successor all the best and more.

  5. Ukraine is 95% Christian Orthodox and Catholic. Not sure what this administration is up to, but it seems a small oligarchic minority keeps pulling the strings, just like in Crimea where the main resistance is coming from non-slavic minorities. The kind of Ukraine Zelensky wants is not the Ukraine i once adored. Of course the invaders must be crushed, but not sure the vision Zelensky has is still my vision.

    • What difference does it make what the religious makeup of the country is? Shouldn’t they choose the best qualified people, regardless of what religion they are?

    • The indigenous people of Crimea are the Tatars. Unless you want to count the Greeks, who were the first settlers; in which case you hand it over to putler-loving Greece. And the Tatars have proved with their blood that they are 100% Ukrainian, just as are the Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, evangelicals, Krymchaks, Azov Greeks, Ashkenazi Jews, Hasidis, Yazidis, Bulgars, Khazars and the myriad of the other ethnicities that make up Ukraine.
      Just one city; the hero city of Mykolaiv, still referred to by the locals as Nikolaev, has no less than 100 different ethic identities living harmoniously there.
      Ukraine, despite the horrors of the Russian pogroms, the putinaZis and the German Nazis, is still the fourth or fifth biggest Jewish country in Europe. It was once the most Jewish country in the world.
      That is why some Israelis wrongly believe, entirely due to Russian propaganda, that Ukrainian collaborators caused the Holocaust.

      • You got me wrong. If i had anything against jews or tatars i would never have come to Ukraine. But in Zelensky’s government Christians are more than underrepresented in key positions, to put it mildly. I will not share conversations with UA soldiers here, but believe me his administration stinks. Petro was and remains the best president ever. Heroyam Slava!

        • “Christians are more than underrepresented”

          Again, so what? Are the people holding the positions well-qualified? What religion they are shouldn’t come up.
