Pro-Russian Protesters Storm Kharkiv City Administration Building; Russian Flags Hoisted Across East Ukraine

Tyler Durden's picture


Even as Russia has officially deployed its military to the Ukraine, its unofficial involvement in The Crimean was well known for days. A much more notable development would be if protesters in the pro-Russian eastern part of the country were to seize control of the second largest city in the Ukraine, Kharkiv, located just miles from the Russian border as this would quickly give Russia a foothold into the east of the nation with the tactical escalation abilities such a takeover would entail. Which is why the following clip of pro-Russian protesters storming the city administration in Kharkiv is of importance: should Ukraine lose control of the city, or is forced to use troops against the people, it would be just the pretext Russia needs to "defend" citizens in this part of the country, the same argument it used for military intervention in the Crimean.

The UNIAN news agency said thousands of people had gathered outside the building during a protest against the country's new leaders who ousted President Viktor Yanukovich a week ago.


The violence signalled that Ukraine's new leaders could face a challenge in mainly Russian-speaking regions that oppose the largely pro-Western course charted by the newly installed government.

Kharkiv is not the only place where Pro-Russian forces are finally speaking up.

The leaders of Crimea, a Black Sea peninsula with an ethnic Russian majority that is home to a Russian naval base, say they have joined forces with Russian servicemen to exert control over key buildings.


Russian parliament has approved a proposal by President Vladimir Putin to deploy troops in Ukraine.


Protests against the new authorities also took place on Saturday in other cities, including Odessa, Dnipro and Donetsk, Yanukovich's home town and power base.


The Russian flag was raised over the regional government building in Donetsk by several thousand pro-Russia activists waving the Russian tricolour and chanting "Russia! Russia!, witnesses said.

Russian flags are being put up across the east Ukraine (source Venoru):

And in other news, Ukrainian boxer, vocal leader of the EuroMeidan opposition movement and potential future president, Vitali Klitschko just called for a general mobilization. After all he has the most to lose if the countercoup quickly sweeps away from power those who organized the original coup in the first place. From Reuters:

Vitaly Klitschko, a senior Ukrainian politician and likely presidential candidate, called on Saturday for a "general mobilisation" following Russian parliament's decision to approve deploying troops in Ukraine's Crimea region.


"Klitschko calls for a declaration on a general mobilisation," the retired boxing champion's political party UDAR (Punch) said, making clear he favoured a military mobilisation.

Finally, the world's most useless organizations, the UN and European finance ministers, are pretending to be relevant:


Time for another Obama appearance to explain just what the "costs" that he mentioned are in his opinion. Because Putin seems to have missed the message.

"Ukraine's Acting President(!?) blah-blah-blah The new government in Ukraine(!?) blah-blah-blah"

Who is the "Ukraine's Acting President" and "new government"? In Ukraine today there is no "acting president" and "new government". In Ukraine today there is only one legitimate, democratically elected President - Yanukovych. And also there is an illegitimate Pretender, who came to power through unconstitutional and undemocratic way - with weapons and through bloodshed. Surname of the criminal and impostor - Turchinov. Eventually he and his whole gang will be arrested and prosecuted.

Criminals, who seized power in Kiev undemocratic, unconstitutional, with arms in their hands, through bloodshed, have no right to make any statement on behalf of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. Criminal rebels illegitimate.

Yup. When the EU-funded opposition did this to Kiev last week it was promoted in western MSM propanda as people standing against tyranny.  This in Crimea will no doubt be promoted as Putin's rabble-rousing terrorists fighting for oppression.

And the sheeple in the USA and EU will suck of the deceptive propaganda and feel all smug parroting it.

No, he does not.  Since the West decided to station troops right on Russia's borders, he is doing hwat he has to do.  He does want the historically Russian provinces to be safe under his protection, and for Ukraine not to allow NATO/US troops to be stationed in Ukraine.

My contacts in the EU tell me that they don't see what the Ukrainian fuss is all about, as their government is no more incompetent, bloated or corrupt than any other.

In their view, if they are marching in Ukraine, they should also be marching throughout the EU and the US.

Vitali Klitschko (JEW) whose yarmulke was tossed into the ring as a potential President.

"A reshuffled Ukrainian Parliament installed following a coup last week has voted to appoint Arseniy Yatsenyuk as the new prime minister of the country. Yats, as Victoria Nuland (JEW), the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the U.S. State Department (JEW), called him, is a natural choice.  He is a millionaire former banker who served as economy minister, foreign minister and parliamentary speaker before Yanukovych took office in 2010. He is a member of Yulie Tymoshenko’s (half Jew) Fatherland Party.  Prior to the revolution cooked up by the State Department and executed by ultra-nationalist street thugs, Tymoshenko was incarcerated for embezzlement and other crimes against the people of UkraineNow she will be part of the installed government, same as she was after the last orchestrated coup, the Orange Revolution.

Yats will deliver Ukraine to the international bankers. “Ukraine is on the brink of bankruptcy and needs to be saved from collapse — Yatsenyuk has a strong economic background,” Ariel Cohen (JEW), senior fellow at the Washington-based Heritage Foundation, told Bloomberg (JEW) on Wednesday.  “Ukraine faces difficult reforms but without them there won’t be a successful future.”
Discussion with the IMF is crucial, US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew (JEW) said earlier this week.  In order to cinch the deal, the U.S. government will sweeten the pot. Lew talked with the IMF (JEW) boss, Christine Lagarde (JEW), about Ukraine as he headed back from a globalist confab, the G-20 meeting in Sydney, Australia.

“Secretary Lew informed Managing Director Lagarde that he had spoken earlier in the day with Ukrainian leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk and advised him of the broad support for an international assistance package centered on the IMF."

Russia was leaving the Ukraine alone and independent. It is NATO that is trying to take the place over. We should keep that in mind. The US funded revolution is a power play to put NATO within a few hundred miles of Moscow. It is a dangerous game, because this didn't have to happen. Ukraine has a vote and elections, any opposition could run, they held power before, but voters kicked them out. Now they use guns to come back into power using rightwing nazis?????

The U.S. 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean has been high state of readiness. Two warships, which in the context of securing the Olympic Games in Sochi, were in the Black Sea, are directed to the waters in Ukraine. It is the frigate USS Taylor and the command ship USS Mount Whitney .

The last ship is equipped with advanced intelligence systems, which the Russian military movements in the region can be held. Closely monitored Whether President Obama actually takes reprisals against the Kremlin, however, is completely unclear. Until now, there is only talk of a possible boycott of the planned summer G8 summit in Sochi. (3)

There will be no WWIII.  No resources to really fight about.  All wars are about resources and money.

US just wanted to dish out some payback for Syria.  You fucked up our pipelines from Qatar and Saudi Arabia, we fuck up yours in Ukraine.

This show is the cost to Putin for embarrassing US on Syria.  US is already backing off and the West will not mobilize any more being huffs and buffs.

If you like your Ukraine, you can keep your Ukraine!

should Ukraine lose control of the city, or is forced to use troops against the people, it would be just the pretext Russia needs to "defend" citizens in this part of the country, the same argument it used for military intervention in the Crimean.

That is the usual argument used by 'americans' anytime they want in a country. Not sure that Russians can adopt the same behaviour as 'americans' do not recognize other people the same right to action.

Once again, all those events show how much 'americans' think ahead. They are leading the game and the Russians dance to the tune.

Those rioters have weapons like stones, firecrackers to seize an official building. Un preparation.

On the other hand, in the 'american' initiated rioting in the west, demonstrators were drilled in urban warfare, ambushed the police forces etc Preparation was fine and nice before 'americans' planned it ahead.

This is a true and honest assessment. No matter how anyone chooses to spin it, the US government is not the global policeman. It is the global bully. It will always find 100 reasons to justify its bullying. In every circumstance, it will always craft a reason to explain why its violations of national sovereignty, violations of international law, and violations of treaties do not apply to it in that circumstance.

Should someone who is not a member of the US bully gang try the same behavior, the US government and its lapdogs (UK, France, Germany, NATO, et cetera) will climp atop their rickety soapboxes and shriek at the top of their voices about how the new Hitler du Jour is threatening world peace and order and must be stopped.

While it is undeniable that a cloak of lies can be very comforting, the moral high ground claimed by the US is fictitious.

What is the difference between communist Russia and the communist technocrats of the EU ?

Russia doesn't favor ethnic and sexual minorities over the majority but defends traditional Russian culture and family values.

Odessa is key, look for Russian forces to make sure they have control of Odessa.

From there they will move north-west and take as much as they can without firing shots or rolling tanks.

If Ukranian forces attack, the Russians can roll the tanks to "protect Russian citizens" and the "Democratically elected Yakunovich who was ousted by a fascist coup".

What's NATO going to do?  The U.S.?

Vlad has already won this one.

NATO must send troops in to defend the Eastern part of Ukraine. That's the plan.

Now, if everybody remains calm and cool, the country will be split up, sliced in half by the Dnieper. However, since the aim of the international banker cartel is WWIII, expect some shooting between US and Russian forces... accidentally, of course, or some other false flag-inspired action that quickly escalates.

The global economy needs a massive bail-out, and world war is always the best fix. Glad I'm 60 and not 18. The US will have to re-establish the draft, but, this could take a while. Remember, we didn't get involved in WWI or WWII until it was already raging, so give it six months at least.

If the Russians aren't stopped at Ukraine, they will continue to march East. Putin is an autocrat, a dictator, and views his role as payback for the disintegration of the Soviet Republic. He will not stop on his own.

Our leaders are limp-dicked suckholes, to be sure and all good Americans should be resisting any inducements by the government to involve the people.

I'd say this should escalate into mammoth uprisings in places like Rome, Paris, Barcelona, London, Athens, Warsaw, Lisbon, etc. Break up the EU, stomp the bankers into the earth where they belong. The world population should be "going rogue" on their governments.

Just need to remind people that Defense Sec. Chuck Hagel has quite the checkered past, dating back to his "miracle" election to the senate in 1996.

Hagel was the original vote-rigger, owned part of ES&S...

"Few Americans knew that until shortly before the election, Hagel had been chairman of the company whose computerized voting machines would soon count his own votes: Election Systems & Software (then called American Information Systems). Hagel stepped down from his post just two weeks before announcing his candidacy. Yet he retained millions of dollars in stock in the McCarthy Group, which owned ES&S. And Michael McCarthy, the parent company’s founder, was Hagel’s campaign treasurer,”

There's tons of info on this prick, if you look for it. He's as illegitimate as Obozo.

Darnn citizens - they keep getting in the way... The US and EU are 'backing' the western Ukraine citizens that overthrew the democratically elected government and are using it to justify sanctions and possible force against Russia. Now, the 'citizens' of eastern Ukraine are rebelling against the new self-appointed Ukraine government. We will either get hypocracy or civil war.

Best defense is a good offense.

The rooskies would not have a clue if Ukranian tanks dashed across the border.

Half jokes aside, this is serious sh-t. Western Ukrainians are not Russophiles.
