The Next Big Catalyst: East Ukraine May Be Officially Indepedent In Seven Days

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Update: moments after we posted this, Putin did his best to bring attention to just this matter:

  • PUTIN CALLS TO POSTPONE MAY 11 REFERENDUM TO EASE UKRAINE TALKS

And naturally, since there will be no delay as Kiev does not even bother to discuss the referendum while Donetsk will push on but certainly aware of Putin's distance-providing "reservation", Putin will "sadly" have to accept the referendum results.

* * *

The Geneva de-escalation lasted one day. The latest "Putin de-escalates the OSCE" gambit which served its purpose to send spoos higher by 6 points, lasted minutes. To wit:

  • PASHYNSKYI SAYS UKRAINE'S ANTI-TERRORIST OP WILL CONTINUE
  • PASHYNSKYI SAYS FOREIGN EXPERTS INVITED TO ODESSA TO PROBE FIRE

And the most "de-escalatory" statement of all:

  • PASHYNSKYI: ALL SLOVYANSK MILITANTS WILL BE KILLED OR DETAINED

So much for that particular distraction.

However, focusing on what is actually important and market-moving (or will be with a 4-6 week delay in this rigged, non-discounting, broken market) and what most are ignoring for now, is that as previously reported on several occasions, East Ukraine is about to become the next Crimea, following an indepedence referendum that is set to take place in the self-proclaimed Donetsk people's republic on Sunday May 11.

And as Itar-Tass reported moments ago, the results will be in as soon as aweek from today or May 14 which means Russian troops will be officially in what will then be former east Ukraine by the end of next week.

Most polling stations in east Ukraine’s Donetsk Region are already fully equipped for a local referendum that is expected to determine the regional status on May 11, co-chairman of the government of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Denis Pushilin told TAR-TASS on Wednesday.

 

“Ballot papers are being delivered to polling stations, most of which are already equipped properly,” he said, noting that referendum results are planned to be made public within three days.

 

Pushilin noted that a sociological survey conducted earlier indicated that a referendum turnout may reach no less than 60%, but it will most likely be higher due to latest tragic events in the country.

 

“Many calls are coming even from Kiev and western Ukraine,” he said. “Now even those who did not believe that we are right begin to understand all the depth of a catastrophe in Ukraine and begin to realize where this may lead to,” Pushilin added.

 

Pushilin also did not rule out that provocations were possible in the region on the referendum day on May 11. “All can be expected from the Kiev junta,” he added.

What happens then?

Look no further than the Crimea case study:

  1. Donetsk declares independence
  2. Kiev, the west and NATO condemn the results, sternly refuse to accept the outcome, and issue more sanctions against Russian politicians and oligarchs
  3. Newly "independent" Donetsk requests military support from friendly Russia to defend its population, and the Russian tanks roll across the border

And as other regions in east and south Ukraine follow in the Donetsk' footsteps, assuring Russia a land connection to Crimea and cutting off Kiev from the Donbas industrial zones and the Slavyansk shale gas, Putin wins again.

Putin is just allowing events to unfold.

The East Ukrainians want nothing to do with the Kiev Junta/IMF.There are a few viral videos in East/South Ukraine circulating that if they leave the Ukraine, they will not have to pay the debts, ending up as slaves to the western banksters.  They understand that their gas bill will more than double, taxes will go up, pensions cut and schools closed if they allow themselves to be dominated by the Kiev Kriminals.

 

If only Americans had the courage of the Russian Ukrainians, we could rid ourselves of our parasitical banksters at once!

"Climate disruption" - you gotta love it.

 

Well, Global Warming went down in flames when there was no warming; Climate Change followed right behind once science went back hundreds of thousands of years to prove the climate is always changing - and just repeating a cycle it's been through before.

 

So now we'll get really esoteric and go for "disruption" - whatever in the Hell that means. Nothing like unintelligible jargon to avoid losing a debate. The Left-Wing Looney Tunes 5% Fringe academics have been doing it since the 60s.

 

Yeah, you gotta love it.

Climate change? Oh, yeah! I miss the days when climate remained perfectly constant for thousands of years. Room temperature all year around.

Or the ice age... those were the days! The planet was so shiny and pretty! Global warming melted all the ice and allowed ugly vegetation to spread, covering most of the planet instead of some tiny portion in Mesopotamia. The carbon released into the atmosphere provided enough building blocks for all sorts of life to emerge. What a catastrophe!

Do they still refer to people as "carbon based life forms" in schools, cause that's totally raciss!

"Meanwhile, a Russian government agency confirms that the Crimea referendum was fraudulent, and that the "pro-Russian forces" not only falsified the ballot results, but also intimidated voters."

The report you cite even admits that "50 - 60%" voted for unification, which would be a majority. Given the fact that the Black Panthers openly intimidated voters in our Presidential election, and thsi was videotaped, perhaps we should invalidate our elections before nitpicking others?

while i don't doubt the turnout was not as high as claimed and that likely not that high a % voted for secession, the article points towards 50-60% voted for secession with 30-50% turnout. So high end of 30% and low end of 15%.

Since one thing we like on ZH is consistency and lack of hipocracy, lets apply this to the USSA's 2012 elections.

 

~ 330m population

~240m eligible to vote 

~126m voted (52%)

~62m voted for Obama (49%)

so only 18.8% (62/330) of the population wanted Obama in office.

Thought of that and, of course, that is a possibility. There are historical examples of this. ('Attack' of German troops by Poles in 1939 used a excuse for blitzkreig. 'Attack' of US warship in Tonkin Gulf to justify Vietnam war, etc.)

But, IF the eastern Ukraine regions would vote as did Crimea, nothing would be gained by the Russians by doing that. Much would be risked if that got out, (and it seems much gets out today).

And, unlike western leadership, the Russians may actually give somewhat of a damn for their people.

But, I agree that we need to look at everything with skepticism.

So if the people of East Ukraine vote and speak as a population... then how can the EU or US say anything? How can they say anything already about Crimea?

If the people speak, it is the peoples choice. That to me shows Washingtons view of the people. If we can't trust Washington DC to respective the choices of the people of a foreign country when it comes to voting and self determination, why should we expect they will respect the choices of US citizens (same arguement for the EU) when it comes to voting and self determination?

This really is a reflection of how they view citizens... er, I mean slaves....

To Washington - and for that matter to Kiev, Moscow, Brussels, and Berlin - they are pawns, not people.

I have two problems with the narrative I see here generally.

1) The assumption that one of the parties in the dispute must be a 'good guy'.  No they don't. ALL evidence indicates that they are ALL BAD GUYS.

2) The assertion that the US is behind all the events tin the Ukraine.  While I am sure THEY WOULD LIKE TO BE...it raises the question to me, "If the CIA is so competent in its Ukraine manipulations, why is it so incompetent in its reactions to the effects of those manipulations????"  

I don't think those two observations are compatible. 

Either the US is behind it all, and playing the master puppeteer with consumate skill, and only PRETENDING to be incompetent in reacting to events

-OR -

It was never behind all this in the first place and - just like a politician - is scrambling to get in front of the parade and pretend to be leading.

I think the USG is PLENTY EVIL ENOUGH to be behind this.  I just note that their reactions to the events they supposedly initiated is very disjointed and incompetent - and that requires some explanation.

Speaking of that Doc, spent some time last night perusing that fine marketplace.  Seemed to find some stuff that might be worth taking a shot at, being 40% of retail.

Then I was reading some "how to shop" Alibaba tutorials and stopped. Turns out if you see anything branded it is a crapshoot and is likey a counterfeit or just a fake pic.  

Was looking at some new surf reels (big surprise I know) and it looked almost like some overstocks as they didn't have every model or size.

Just not worth taking a chance on it.  If this website was for production overruns and stated as much maybe I would give it a shot.

What if you get scammed?  Is "Peggy" going to help you get your money back?  Doubt it.

There's a good chance that a good portion (tapering is the bulk of the  reason) of the recent tech massacre was to free up money for this IPO.

 

Edit: I just perused the site to see what a new Cannondale bike would cost me. I just paid $3,500 for a new carbon fiber Cannondale... Alibaba's price...$500. It looks like I paid too much.

The only difference between the EU government, the US government, the Russian government, and the Ukrainian government is that the Kiev assholes say what they plan to do. 

The rest of them do the same things but shut up about it.

Whole thing is a globalist plan to sell out the west.

France and the US are bringing in Russian and Chinese to protect us as all this is going on.

Detroit and Manhatten NY are going to be owned by China and over a 100000 thousand Chinese troops are in the US.

No, let them keep talking.

 

I can't think of anything more inspiring to the pro-freedom forces in east Ukraine than to know it's kill them before they kill you.

 

The real tragedy is the NY Times / WaPo / CBS / NBC / MSNBC / et. al MSM propaganda outlets ignoring the obvious conclusion that the Kiev butchers are only interested in the "ethnic cleansing" of Russians - followed by the Jews (who, as they watched Hitler rise to power, tried to assimilate even deeper into German society - and now try to do the same with the Ukrainian Nationalists - aka Death Camp Guards, and their bedfellow Nazis).

 

So, it’s fight or die. That’s motivational – and provides Putin with even more ammo to destroy the US / EU lying machine.

 

When the Book of Revelations talks about The Great Whore, it is overwhelmingly obvious it speaks of the US.

 

(And as a special freebie thought for all the End Timers out there - Obama's full name contains 18 characters; 6 + 6 + 6).

Not a banker... but isn't it obvious?

They light a fire in every place where Putin or his allies block their pipeline plans.

They're holding Russia's allies hostage to a pipeline deal.

This puts Putin in a tough situation.  He is indebted to Gazprom and Rosneft.

The banksters are holding countries in the Russian zone of influence hostage to Russian compliance. 

Putin has to choose between Russia's zone of influence and Gazprom/Rosneft's desires.

The election will be ahrd to carry out with a Ukrainina military offensive most likely taking place on election day, plus Right Sector will be bussed in to critical areas to attack anyone they can find. But still, getting a set number of people on record as wanting out of the Ukraine and it's coup leaders in Kiev. Nobody in East Ukraine was given a vote or even a say in who would use violence to take power in Kiev, all paid for and coordianted by the USA and NATO. Enev paying so called protestors a daily wage to attack police and occupy buildings using force. This, according to Washington is how democracy works in the age of US hegemony and US freedom spreading. Unwilling East Ukrainians are being turned into debt slaves by the coup leades in Kiev, Yats, an IMF banker, appointed by the USA as ruler of Kiev, is taking billions in loans from the IMF and making the people of Ukraine responsible for servicing this debt over decades to come. Every bit of surplus weath creation Ukraine can manage, that will all go straight to IMF bankers, and people will get no return on their labor. Germany also is going to take control of Donets basin industry and mones, by taking control, Germany can shut these down, fire hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians and move all the production to German industry. To pay for the imported German goods, the IMF and EU will vedor finance consumption via these loans. In the end, a Greek style economy will emerge. Under this system, the debt slaves will finally be unable to service their IMF debts, allowing confiscation of their bank accounts and reductions in their unemployment benefits.

Austerity, wage cuts, job cuts, destroying of public services and huge increases in military spending will be needed to make Ukraine NATO ready. The USA is salivating over the missile bases, air bases and arms depots they will be able to put on Russia's border. Giving NATO a chance to strike first and destroy much of Russia before they can react. Should Russia refuse to turn over their nations resources to Western Corporations and allow NATO and the USA to carve up Russia between them. It is already known via Neo-Con writtings, that Japan and the USA are looking forward to their new lands in Russian Far East. Simply dig deeper into Neo-Con writtings and books over the last decade, they do not hide the fact that the USA by right owns Russia, and the pesky natives must be attacked and thrown out to make room for NATO. In this way, NATO is no different than Hitler. Already NATO front line troops are buring up dozens of people when they can pin them down in a building. Actions speak louder than Kerry's lies, watch the videos, see what Right Sector has planned for all thnic Russian Ukrainians. The people in the East have been watching the videos and are surely arming themsleves and preparing to do battle with the Untied States, because Right Sector is an arm of the CIA, which is a US institution of imperial expansion.

Putin is lucky to have a large nuclear weapons triad. This forces Washington to act with some retraint. But Ukraine does not need to practice restraint. This is why Right Sector and the Ukrainian army makes such a perfect proxy for the Obama controlled US military.

I thought Bush was a crased Neo-Con, Irag proved me right. Obama though, he is a great liar, and a much more violent murdered than Bush ever was. The Obama drone war, in which Obama spends his evenings going over kill lists is an expample. His support for Al-Qaeda in Syria and Libya is pure evil. Is Obama Muslim? He acts like he is a Sunni Jihadist. Look at his actions, not his liar mouth. Obama speaks, and the shit filled lies spew out. Of course blacks and liberals believe this neo-con warmonger liar. If the man has his way, millions will die in the coming Obama conquest of East Ukraine.

Jack:

 

Your quote - "The Obama drone war, in which Obama spends his evenings going over kill lists is an example." is one of the most succinct summaries of Obama's psychosis.

 

I wrote this a couple of months ago and your comment brings it to the forefront again:

 

It's time to quit lying to ourselves and admit we have a mentally ill president.

He suffers from delusions of grandeur - believing that all he has to do is wave his hand and it is now reality.

This is the result of his pathological lying - he lies about anything and everything - telling the world whatever he wants it to believe regardless of the reality surrounding his pronouncements. He is increasingly disconnected from reality.

He is kept afloat by a tight circle of enablers who cover for him and spin his lies. But that is changing.

I am making this statement not to be mean, but rather because it is time to seriously consider that Barack Obama is not mentally healthy. I am saying this because he is continuing to run farther and farther away from reality in his actions, and believes that whatever he says – becomes the made-over reality that exists only in his mind.

Take his statement that "100-million" people have signed up for ObamaCare - that's nearly 1/3 of the entire 315-million person population of the US. It is a number that prima fascia is irrational.

But Obama stated it as a fact anyway to his Obamabots in Organizing for America. They showed their lack of rational relationship by accepting the number - regardless of its obvious irrational ability to be true. As an aside, it shows that these people are brain-dead, and just accept that whatever Obama says is the truth - with no rational vetting whatsoever.

That's truly scary.

But scarier still is this: NO ONE in the WH dared correct him. No statement came out saying so much as issuing the typical lame excuse that he "misspoke." Nothing. The WH enablers fell silent (as did the Looney Tunes Left MSM).

Why?

This is what makes their silence so scary: It means that the WH aides are at a point where they so fear the mad king's wrath that they will abandon reality for his irrational fantasies. They will no longer be a wall of reality constraining his thinking to the Real World.

In short, they are no longer Gatekeepers, but rather like “Alice in Wonderland,” they are the cards painting the roses red for the insane Queen of Hearts.

"She wanted white - then said what a fright, so now she's wants them red instead; we're painting the roses red, we're painting the roses red - we can't say no we won't, because if we don't, she'll want our heads instead! So we're painting the roses red . . ."

I realize that take from Alice in Wonderland goes over the heads - or should I say through the air-heads - of the Obamabots. But what do you expect from people who passively accept 100-million people being signed up for ObamaCare?

That is mental disconnect. That is insanity. That is Barack Obama.

Don't apologize for thinking him ill; he is ill.

And this latest exercise in waving his hand, and thinking that reality magically changes when he does, shows Barack Obama is disconnected from reality, and must be removed from office before his mental illness drives him to even more desperate, irrational thinking - and even more dangerous, irrational actions.

If you agree, please copy this post and circulate it as much as you can. Pull the plug on the psycho sociopath.

I have no confidence that Obama, his administration, his senior bureaucrats, his senior operatives are as omnipotently competent as you are promoting  here.

If they do not display that level of competence to achieve their agenda at home, why should I believe they have it thousands of miles away?

I think that the EU has ambitions to be a super state.

I am 100% certain that the EU are already manipulating events with respect to Russia, Ukraine, and gas supplies - and that they have been doing it for at least 10 years.

I think that the EU is not obedient to Obama or to the US, as Russia supposes.  I think that they are simply owned by the same set of bankers.  And those bankers see the sun setting on the American Century, and are shifting their focus to the EU.

I think you can see that in the transfers of wealth from the US Fed Reserve to the ECB member banks over the last six years.

I think that the EU is driving the situation in the Ukraine, and the US was caught with its pants down.

If the US is driving, why are all the responses to feckless and incompetent? Why did the Geneva accord do nothing?

Putin has invited EU leaders and energy interests to Moscow to discuss.  If their deal sticks better than Geneva - even a little better - it indicates that the Americans were never the ones in charge in this situation.

@ Jack Burton - thank you for the thought provoking analysis.

 

If all is as it appears to be, that is, a conflict between Russia & the West rather than a part of some greater hidden co-operative plan between them - - - what would be the Russians perspective ?

It seems to me, that this ultimately would be seen as an existential threat to their continued existence as an independent people. It also seems that if NATO seeks to further strengthen their strategic advantage in regard to the Russians, that it could cause them to launch a nuclear first strike against the West while they were still able to do so. When the 3rd Reich was collapsing, Hitler was quite willing to have Germany completely destroyed. That's how pyschopaths 'think'.

Insane.
