Ukraine Military Reveals Protesters Stole Weapons Cache; Guilty Of "Terrorist Acts"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

With Putin hoping that they can just keep it from going full civil war for a few more days, Ukraine continues to slide towards a dismal result. This morning sees the next level of escalation in the break-away Western region:

  • *UKRAINE'S SECURITY SERVICE SAYS WEAPONS CACHE STOLEN: INTERFAX
  • *UKRAINE SECURITY SERVICE SAYS PROTESTERS SEIZED 1,500 GUNS
  • *UKRAINE SERVICE SAYS PROTESTERS SEIZED 100,000 ROUNDS OF AMMO
  • *UKRAINE SERVICE SAYS PROTESTERS GUILTY OF `TERRORIST ACTS'

And with that, the 'excuse' the military needed to get involved as Interfax reports the Ukraine's SBU starts "Anti-terrorist" operation in the Western region of Ivano-Frankvisk. With 25 dead and 241 injured, according to the AP, we suspect these numbers are sadly just the start.

 

Via Interfax,

Volodymyr Porodko, deputy head of the Ukrainian Security Service, said weapons and ammunition have been stolen from the Ukrainian Security Service department in Ivano-Frankivsk.

 

"A total of 268 service pistols, two rifles, three assault rifles, 92 grenades, and some 15,000 cartridges were seized in the Ukrainian Security Service department in Ivano-Frankivsk," he said while meeting with foreign ambassadors in the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday.

Russia is starting to comment:

Extremists are to blame for the events happening in Ukraine, however opposition forces, which refused the compromise, and Western countries, which interfered in the domestic affairs of Ukraine, bare some responsibility as well, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

 

"Of course, the blame is on extremists, who tried all these weeks and all these months to bring the situation to such forceful scenario but considerable share of responsibility is also on opposition activists, who refused compromise, gave the authorities demands outside the legal frame and in the end turned out to be incapable to fulfill what has been agreed," Lavrov said at a news conference following a meeting with his Kuwaiti counterpart.

Ukraine CDS spiked to 4 year highs...

What's happening in Kiev right now is Putin's worst nightmare.

If it can happen in Kiev, it can happen in Moscow.

Many have forgotten about the fraudulent Putin's elections, but not Russian people.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/06/world/europe/observers-detail-flaws-in-russian-election.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

Most of the Kremlin's efforts were focused on Moscow, where an exit poll suggested that United Russia had won less than 30% support. But after a long delay the result came in at 46.5%, supporting Stalin's famous maxim that it is the counting rather than the voting that matters. The internet boiled over with stories of election-rigging. In some regions turnout appeared to exceed 140%. In Chechnya United Russia scored 99.5%. A similar result was reported in a Moscow psychiatric hospital.

Facts for the brainwashed by Russian propaganda Putin's sheep:

1. "The authenticity of the recording has not been confirmed" WAS DIRECT Zero Hedge's quote.

2. The audio WAS leaked by and originated from FSB.

3. Zero Hedge IS full of beans, as one opinionated and obsessed with Putin "winning" Tyler Durden often quotes RIA Novosti as if it were a credible objective source.

RIA Novosti is the largest "news" (propaganda lies) agency in Russia. It operates under the Russian Ministry of Communications and Mass Media. In December 2013, Putin appointed Dmitry Kiselev to be the president of RIA Novosti and Russia's chief propagandist.

Russia's Chief Propagandist

 Even by the standards of Soviet television, the Russia Channel has been churning out propaganda that would have made their Soviet predecessors blush.

Unable to admit that he was wrong, he instead totally dances around his claim (in bolded text) that the recording was fake.

Of course, this little fact forces a reality check that destroys totally the story.

I can't quantify the value of his work, but I can tell you it is vastly overpaid.

However, should such revolts start in Moscow the government response would be crushing way beyond what we see in Kiev.

The result could be an even stronger iron fist rule of Russia.

Last time Kiev had protests (Orange Revolution), Putin squeezed democracy in Russia.

Right now he is scared and tightening the screws in Russia and cracking down on DozhdTV, Russia's last independent television station.

And it was not a coincidence that Putin has ordered a propagandist makeover of RIA Novosti (essentially an arm of former Soviet KGB, now called the FSB) to broadcast Goebbels-like propaganda lies to Russian people 24-7.

No, of course not.  Jewish people who happen to commit crimes are not guilty of those crimes becuse it is antisemitic to accuse a Jewish person of committing a crime, irrespective of whether or not a person who committed a crime happened to be Jewish because blaming 'Jewish people' in the way we commonly blame 'other groups' is nazi nazi hitler hitler godwin's law cumming all over your face...

As Abe Foxman would say, the majority of those who killed the Czar, and who made billions by robbing Russia and Ukraine of their wealth after the collapse of the USSR "just happened to be" Jewish.  Henry Ford and Charlie Lindbergh were simply full of hate, therefore nothing they wrote had any truth to it...

"A Real Case Against the Jews" by Marcus Eli Ravage

"You accuse us of stirring up revolution in Moscow. Suppose we admit the charge. What of it? Compared with what Paul the Jew of Tarsus accomplished in Rome, the Russian upheaval is a mere street brawl" (p. 347).

"You make much noise and fury about the undue Jewish influence in your theaters and movie palaces. Very good; granted your complaint is well-founded. But what is that compared to our staggering influence in your churches, your schools, your laws and your governments, and the very thoughts you think every day?" (p. 347).

"You have not begun to appreciate the real depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are disturbers. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom not merely of the latest great war but of nearly all your wars, not only of the Russian but of every other major revolution in your history. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it" (p. 347).

@ Cult_of_Reason

You speak here lies and distortion of facts, in the best tradition of card crooks of propaganda from faux news.
In your lies, you try to do substitution of concepts the two different concepts:
- Results of voting for United Russia party, as a Party.
and
- Results of voting for Putin personally, as President of Russia.

Take my word, I know better than you what is happening in Russia and what mood among Russian citizens.
Most of the population of Russia support Putin completely.
Another part of the population supports Putin partially.
And only 5% of Russia do not support Putin.

I often hear statements like you professional liars and provocateurs what the Russian people do not support Putin.
But the election results say otherwise.
I often hear statements like you professional liars and provocateurs that Putin's elections were unfair.
But the results of the vote for Putin in Europe and in all other countries of the world, say the opposite.
I mean those voting, which took place in the Russian embassies around the world - in Berlin, London, Paris, Washington and so on.
In all these countries, under the close supervision of Western observers, the majority of Russian citizens voted for Putin.

For this reason, your lies can deceive only the very illiterate Western citizens.
But here on the ZH, you will not find these illiterate people.

For those who do not understand what was meant by the militia too, all one needs to do is share Section 13 from Virginia's Bill of Rights:

 

That a well-regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.

For the legion of low-intellect lefties who want to demonstrate their stupidity by quibbling about the English language meaning of "well-regulated" I would recommend reading the works of Fletcher (1698) and Stanyan (1714) beforehand.

Then read the correspondence between Mason and Washington regarding the Virginia Militia. Back then, gun-toting rednecks worldwide brought their own black guns, powder, and high-capacity bags of balls, along with their own BEER for the weekend chug & shoots. The Virginian officer corps had a predilection for RUM (which created some desires for slightly better "regulation" among those with responsibility for victory). However, to this day in Switzerland, while most of the black rifles are paid for by the State, the gun-toting rednecks still have to bring or buy their own ammunition and BEER at the range (outside of certain State-sponsored parties where some brass is included with the price of admission).

Well-regulated doesn't, and never did, mean what most people think it means (but then Vizzini was a pompous asswipe)

---

EDIT There's also Eliot's Debates, which details ad nauseam many of the nuances of the actually debate over the text and ramifications of Second Amendment through the various State ratifying Conventions. Or if you want to go really hardcore Virginian, there is David Robertson's Debates and Other Proceedings of the Convention of Virginia, convened at Richmond, on Monday the second day of June, 1788, for the purpose of Deliberating on the Constitution recommended by the Grand Federal Convention, to which is prefixed the Federal Constitution

Abraham Stanyan on page 159

http://www.stephenhalbrook.com/law_review_articles/citizens-in-arms.pdf

Andrew Fletcher

A good militia is of such importance to a nation, that it is the chief part of the constitution of any free government. For though as to other things, the constitution be never so slight, a good militia will always preserve the public liberty. But in the best constitution that ever was, as to all other parts of government, if the militia be not upon a right foot, the liberty of that people must perish. The militia of ancient Rome, the best that ever was in any government, made her mistress of the world: but standing armies enslaved that great people, and their excellent militia and freedom perished together. The Lacedemonians continued eight hundred years free, and in great honour, because they had a good militia. The Swisses at this day are the freest, happiest, and the people of all Europe who can best defend themselves, because they have the best militia.

.... Read the rest of the work to see how describes the difference between good and bad militias. Abraham Fletcher Abraham Stanyan’s Account of Switzerland (1714) described, “a well regulated Militia, in Opposition to a standing Army of mercenary Troops, that may overturn a Government at Pleasure.” He portrayed the Bern militia as consisting of “the whole Body of the People, from sixteen to sixty,” explaining: Every Man that is listed, provides himself with Arms at his own Expence; and the Regiments are all armed in an uniforme manner, after the newest Fashion; for which Purpose, there is an Officer called a Commissioner of Arms , whose Business it is, to inspect their Arms and Mounting, to take Care they be conformable to the Standard, and to punish such as fail in those Particulars. The Swiss experience figured prominently in the American Revolution and afterwards in American constitution building. In his Defence of the Constitutions (1787), a survey of ancient and modern republics and other political models, John Adams divided the Swiss cantons—regardless of whether they were “democratical” or “aristocratical”—as having two institutions of direct democracy: the right to bear arms and the right to vote on laws. Bern had a democratic militia system: “There is no standing army, but every male of sixteen is enrolled in the militia, and obligated to provide himself a uniform, a musket, powder, and ball; and no peasant is allowed to marry, without producing his arms and uniform. The arms are inspected every year, and the men exercised.”

I spend half my time in a rural area. The county ran several trash dumps and couldn't keep them going. Many of them shut down because of budget issues. So now, some people have to drive 30-40milles to the nearest still operating county run dump to drop off trash.

On the other hand, a private contractor provides trash bin pick up service throughout the county. Its a large area (lots of farmers) that is spread out geographically. Yet, the private contractor is doing very well and you spend less with them each month than when you burned gas taking your trash to the local county dump when it was still operatng. The private company has a 4 or 5 year contract. If they don't provide good service at a good price they will lose their contract when it comes up for renewal.

The American founders were intelligent and well educated men who knew history. They understood the dangers of democracy (thus created a republic).  A democracy is the best political system for creating a dictatorship.  Take control of the 'schools' & the media, and you can control the limits of what people are able to think . . . and thus how they will act. It takes a minimum of physical force & resources to control and subjugate people, because they will do it to themselves.

To make a nation truly strong & prosperous, people would be encouraged to truly think for themselves & make the best of their own abilities. Such a people could not be stopped & would have little to fear.

Unfortunately, most 'leaders' lust for power over others - so don't want their own people to be strong & independent human beings.

From what I've heard, people in Ukraine don't really support the violent demonstrators, but they don't support Yanukovich either. 

Small business has been really hurt by some laws that were obviously passed to benefit some insiders (happens in USA all the time too). One particualr case from a friend of a relative said that they've passed a law that a small business must have an office of at least 5x5m. But many people work either selling stuff outside or importing goods, and now they suddenly can't run their business as their customers are literally forced to buy from bigger guys that benefit from the laws passed.

At the same time, there seems to be a pattern similar to other paid demonstrators that have western sources. But many people are pissed off too. I have to say that Ukraine gov't has been extremely patient, in US or even 'peaceful' Canada, those demonstrators would be locked up after maybe two weeks. And probably shot at if they were taking apart public squarts, breaking builds, occupying offices.

Few weeks ago, I saw a clip from Russian TV as the organizers (probably western) were teaching people how to make and throw molotov cocktails. Yesterday, there was a clip posted of that in action.

Is this situation based on ethnic/regional lines or is it purely ideological? I'm most curious about the composition of the police force? If this is based on ethnic/regional groups, does the police have members of those groups? The point being is how many police belong to these groups or have the same ideological beliefs as the protestors, but continue to act as police and attack the protestors purely out of job security? They need to keep collecting their paycheck? How many people sell out their beliefs to keep their job? The implications for the US are obvious, how many police will continue to be police when the SHTF?

I've got very limited knowledge of thge ethnic makeup of Ukranians versus Russians, but I believe they are very similar on the usually critical ethnic/religious fault lines.  To your last question, I think the # of police that do their jobs after the SHTF depends on the credibility of the currency those officer are paid in (fiat, or food/commodities).  Only a really bad tyrant would depend on local police to put their boots on the thoats of their neighbors.  Plan for Fedcoats from other regions, with RESCUE tanks, to be actively confiscating weapons and herding folks off to camps.

Ukraine gun laws (from wiki-wrong-sometimes):

In Ukraine a license is required to own firearms. If a citizen is:

  • 21 years of age (18 if the license is for hunting)
  • has no criminal record
  • has no history of domestic violence
  • has no mental illness or history of mental illness
  • has good reason (target shooting, hunting, collection)

...then that person may be issued a license.

Once a license is issued, all guns must be kept unloaded and in a safe. If a person owns more than three firearms, the safe must have an alarm on it. Citizens are permitted to own non-fully automatic rifles and shotguns as long as they are stored properly when not in use.

Handguns are illegal except for target shooting and those who hold concealed carry permits. Handguns are only allowed in .22, 9mm, .357mag and .38 calibre, which are the common sporting calibers. Concealed carry licenses are available, but are not normally issued unless a threat to life is present and can be proven

So there's a gun registry, no real hand guns to speak of and most likely sparse personal longarm ownership.  This also means a society that is probably really short on gun use experience.  They'll need numbers on their side and they will sacrifice 10x to the police/military if they want to prevail in a full out civil war.  They need to start raiding armories, etc.

It took a pop singer, Lorde, to declare in her Grammy Award acceptance speech last month that the emperor has no clothes: “Planet Earth is run by psychopaths that hide behind slick marketing, ‘freedom’ propaganda and ‘economic growth’ rhetoric, while they construct a global system of corporatized totalitarianism. As American journalist Chris Hedges has identified, a corporate totalitarian core thrives inside a fictitious democratic shell. This core yields an ‘inverted’ totalitarian state that few recognize because it does not look like the Orwellian world of Nineteen Eighty-four.This corporate totalitarian core is spreading outward from America. Planet Earth is being rapidly militarized by the world’s major and significant states, including their police forces. Meanwhile, state surveillance is becoming universal and torture is outsourced to gulags.” http://snoopman.wordpress.com/2014/02/06/lordes-suppressed-grammy-award-acceptance-speech-full-transcript-26-january-2014/ The TV channels censored her speech and cut it off by substituting pre-recorded content. http://snoopman.wordpress.com/2014/02/06/clipping-queen-bees-wings-lordes-real-grammy-speech-suppressed/
