I am writing this the Ukrainian Rada has passed a law allowing
foreign armies into Ukraine. They are currently discussing whether to
combine armies with Lithuania and Poland. This vast force increase
will provide equipment and personnel to cover Kiev's heavy losses in
the war Poroshenko is waging in Donbass. I don't know what combining
armies with NATO member countries will ultimately mean. I do know
that both countries are very close to following in Ukraine's
Ultra-National footsteps internally because
of pressure from their own nationalist diaspora s.
Today (Feb 4)in the heavy shelling of Donetsk, Ukraine hit Hospital #27 among other civilian structures in Donetsk 17 homes, in Makeyevka 28 , and Gorlovka 2. At Hospital #27 most of the deaths are from flying glass when the windows blew in due to the explosions.
The Ukrainians are firing Uragan rockets which also disperses cluster bombs. Cluster bombs are illegal. In Donetsk one Uragan rocket struck the location where humanitarian aid was given out and a children's playground.
This video with English subtitles shows the horror of Ukraine's bombing in Gorlovka. The shelling, rockets and bombing have been constant there since the beginning of the year. This is going on all across Donbass and on the front lines, Ukraine is once again shelling refugees trying to leave.
this background in this video with translated
subtitles by Kazzura commander Mosgovoy addresses this ongoing
situation and states where he sees the conflict in Ukraine going. He
also appeals to Ukraine to fight against the real enemies of the
people and to stop killing each other. He says where he thinks it
must end. There has to be justice for all Ukrainians.
Listening to Alexey
Mosgovoy, commander of Prezrak Battalion opens a clear lens into
understanding the leaders of LNR and DNR in Donbas. Mosgovoy
has been vilified in the press as a rising tyrant, a backward looking
ideologist, and an intolerant leader in an attempt to undermine the
position of the DNR and LNR in western media.
In what became the West's big article on Mosgovoy, he was made out to be a cruel unjust warlord overseeing the trial of rapists and concluding it with the death penalty. It was called a trial by a mob, and a death sentence was ordered with a show of hands.
The first rapist was a soldier under his command and the girl was just 15 years old. The second was accused of raping a child. During the trial all the evidence was brought forward and the only defense given was"she asked for it." The mother of the convicted was convinced of his guilt. The mob which was over 300 people knew both the accused and the accusers in the case. In essence it was a jury of 300 people including friends and family. Because it is war time and a soldier raped a child(15 years old), the death penalty put on the table.
After clouding the facts and dragging this mans reputation into the mud, for main stream media the story ended there.
Its how it really ended that gives real insight into this NAF leader.
Mosgovoy suspended the death sentences right away. His stated reason which went unreported was "Until there is a sitting government, laws are decided, and a real judicial system is in place; the punishment cannot be carried out. Real laws have to be in place and protections first. A real court needs to be established and then this can be decided."
The convicted soldier is digging trenches, and the civilian is in custody until a legal court can hear the case.
