Ukrianian Government Is Said to Air-Drop Leaflets: "Leave or die."

Introductory note by Eric Zuesse: Below is from a recent day's report by the Belarusian (or "Byelorussian") management-consulting firm Geopolitics, a site which often posts the most-penetrating daily reports and analyses of the Ukrainian civil war, with a dozen or more articles written by various Belarusian academics. One of these news reports, shown below, is provocatively headlined "War will begin on Monday"; another is titled, "Kiev is preparing to capture Donetsk, and it will be the biggest defeat for Russia since 1991"; yet a third is "Donbass pending decisive assault". So, some of these articles focus on the historical importance of the events.

Their site,, should be frequently referenced and quoted by journalists, but (for some reason) it isn't. Perhaps journalists aren't encouraged to focus on what's important, or historically significant.

I am posting here English-language auto-translations of those three plus of two more, all by google's auto-translation system, from the original Russian. The remaining two are "Blitzkrieg for Novorossia," and "Levada Center: Social protest in Ukraine catalyzes around the image of the enemy -- Russia."

I have tried to improve the auto-translations of these stories a bit, so as to make them more-readily understandable (since auto-translations tend to make for slow reading)'

I shall start by showing the complete page's table of contents, with titles for the more-than-two-dozen articles there, so that you'll see, from that list of titles, the diversity and importance of the topics. All of the articles are presented in full at the linked web-page.

The term "ATO" that's employed by the Ukrainian Government and that's seen in some of these articles, refers to the Ukrainian Government's "Anti-Terrorist Operation" to kill everyone who lives in the two adjoining areas of Ukraine that had voted 90% or more for the man whom Obama's Ukrainian coup overthrew on 22 February of this year, and who was replaced by this new Government, whose "ATO" aims to get rid of those voters, so as to consolidate their regime by democratic elections in which the survivors will consist predominantly of their supporters. Those two regions are called "Donbass," and are comprised of "LC" or the Lugansk area, or Luhansk; and of "DPR" or else "DNI" or Donetsk area, or Donetsk city and its environs.

On October 24th, George Eliason, sent this email to me and a number of his other journalist friends:

The war is going to be in high gear in a few days here. I spent a few days embedded with the Novo Russia military and met with most of the leaders here. Their intel is that Poroshenko is going to attack hard. Ukraine has massed tanks along the south border and at Debalsova and outside Lugansk.

Poland gave Ukraine aircraft to bomb the cities and leaflets are being dropped in Ukrainian controlled cities that read: leave or die.

Things are going to happen quickly here soon - possibly over the weekend.

Please forward this to everyone writing on this. From the top down they are worried poroshenko is going to light the whole region on fire.
