Poroshenko Demands Ukraine Separatists Be Declared "Terrorists" Under International Law

Tyler Durden's picture

As the tit-for-tat public relations blitz continues to play out, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has demanded that the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) be recognized as terrorist organizations, "so that any cooperation or support the terrorists receive is recognized as such under international law." Now that the US has 'proved' that the separatists shot down MH17, we suspect the calls will grow louder... even as Poroshenko says he opposes martial law.


As Interfax reports,

Ukraine will demand at an EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting on Tuesday that the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) be recognized as terrorist organizations, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said.


"We [Ukraine] and the Netherlands will make every effort, in particular during the meeting tomorrow of the EU Foreign Affairs Council where Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin will speak, so that the so-called Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics be declared terrorist organizations and so that any cooperation or support the terrorists receive is recognized as such under international law," Poroshenko said on Monday while visiting the Dutch embassy in Kyiv.


Ukraine is preparing international lawsuits against the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR, to label them as terrorist organizations, Poroshenko said earlier on July 19 during a meeting with Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans.



Introduction of martial law would make military operations more difficult, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says in statement.

Martial law would also impact possible IMF support

Wait, didn't he mean "trrsts?"

Isn't that a way to seize their assets? Hey! I think he's on to something. This could be a money maker!

The USSA supports moderate terrorists, or is it freedom fighters?

I forget which.

Fuck you Poroshenko!  Why don't you release the air traffic control tapes and we'll see who the terrorists are you piece of shit.  Hope those chocolates keep you warm this winter.   lolol

When will the third rail in Ukraine standup and start clubbing both the Nazi's and the CIA and Zionist goons? It might happen.

First two words that came into my mind:


Searching the comments I was not alone, I guess this guy easily makes a first impression

5 days later, no air traffic control recordings, no one's asking where they are, not even the "leader of the free world".

Everyone and their mother keep bashing Putin.

The "leader of the free world" is fund raising in california on his 8-year guiness world record 'longest campaign ever'.

YAT"S IS THE GUY! It's enough to know that Uke PM is promising justice the MH17 'bastards'. (don't think his paymasters are going to be very happy about that) He must be going to release the the MH17 ATC tapes, as part of the Nudelman/Geoffrey Pyatt boxed set.


VN: "I think Yats is the guy that, who's got the economic experience, the governing experience... What he needs is Klitsch and Tyahnybok on the outside”

Simple: if they are in syria, they are freedom fighters, and deserving of our support, money, and weapons. However, if these same people cross over into iraq and fight against the puppet regime there, they become terrorists.

makes sense if you dont think about it

espirit's picture

I'll just go with the Bizzaro World definition of "Freedom Fighter."

Those that fight against freedom.

More like it's starting to look like it's every man for themselves.

smart plan. Apparently all you have to do is label someone a "terrorist" and you can kill them with impunity. No trial, judge, jury, etc, just based on the whims of one person

Works for the US government.  Didnt Harry Reid call the Bundy ranch freedoms fighter a bunch of Terrorists?

I guess if you stay in the ten yard by ten yard constitutional zone you are a proud patriot, but if you step outside that box you are a terrorist.  You see everything has borders, just like the US Constitution now.  It used to cover every square inch of this nation, now its only in designated areas a few yards wide.

So just like you said carl, if they step across syria into iraq they are terrorists, just like the American citizen stepping outside the designated zone surrounded by barking attack dogs and militarized police.

Soon it will read -- Oh, you still believe in your beloved now-defunct u.s constitution? Terrorist!!

Aren't the liberals "a bunch of terrorists"?

(Please, no red=blue whiners.)

Lotsa terrorists in NYC and WDC.  Just sayin's all.

ebworthen's picture

Of course.

And the people of Detroit.

And retirees all across the fruited plains of the U.S.A.

And anyone not believing in the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments as defined by .gov.

I suppose King George called the Colonists "terrorists" as well.  Send in the Redcoats!

The hundreds of CIA and FBI agents in Ukraine are finally paying off

Numerous US agents are helping the coup-appointed government in Ukraine to “fight organized crime” in the south east of the country, the German newspaper Bild revealed.

According to the daily, the CIA and FBI are advising the government in Kiev on how to deal with the ‘fight against organized crime’ and stop the violence in the country’s restive eastern regions.

Well, anything bad that happens to an American or Israeli soldier is terrorism.  Anything that inconveniences US government or military policy objectives is terrorism.  Pretty much the only things that aren't terrorism are capitulation by non-Americans, and violent actions taken by American or Israeli military personnel or their allies to further their political agenda.

Wouldn't be the first time a President assigned an unfair pejorative name to his political enemies. I believe Czar Lincoln the Terrible patented the technique.

Porky's regime is using heavy artillery & bombing populated civilian areas, which makes him a "War Criminal" under international law (the Hague Conventions).


RECISION's picture

Well... exactly...

Hmmm, so where is all the western condemnation of that?

Or of Israel - for shelling the bejesus out of Gaza? 

It's all a bit selective isn't it.

One could even call it hypocritical.

When the stench of the lies reaches to the skys, and leaves you gagging...

... actually, didn't Israel have a solution for "war criminals", don't they have hit squads that sneak around the world wacking the "bad guys"?

Could be a good solution for a few 1%'ers, and other political hacks we could name.

Go to Twitter, and you will find the mangled bodies of hundreds of women, children and the elderly blown to pieces after Grad and Smersh rockets fired into their cities.  Murdered by the US/EU-supported Kiev Nazi Pig regime.

I saw a 4 year old being dragged out of a bombed out building, fcking broke my heart, trully horrific, and not a peep from MSM. Here in Aus people were like nah no war there must have started this week because we haven't heard anything on the news and the government would never kill civilians becuase they are just and right. Incomprehensible and utterly deplorable.

From one perspective Putin is helping the dollar extend its life. Prior to the Ukranian-Russian conflict there was a lot of identity crisis with NATO as to what its purpose was. Russia and EU was seen as more like Canada and the US. NATO was genuanly not shure what its need for a military focus was. Now NATO is refocused on defense just like the old days thanks to Putin. My sales manager is traveling between Kyiv and Moscow over the next 3 weeks and will come back with first hand stories I am looking forward to hearing.

My sales person is a she, and she speaks Ukrainian, Russian, and English. So I should hear native insights.

My Russian girlfriend says Ukrainian isn't a language. It is just the ebononics version of Russian.

My Russian employee says similar things and finds the Ukrainian language humerous to listen to.

You mean thanks to the CIA.  And I would wait until winter before saying the dollar's life is extended.  The EU might be burning greenbacks to keep warm.

@AWTY, not only that, this 'crisis' against Putin hoping to re'unite' the disitegrating EU. Excellent interview of Jim Willie by Greg Hunter. Germany to leave EU for BRICS, plus Europeans fed up with providing fodder and profits for US warmachine. lots more at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIphgOd-8t8&list=UUG-G8LLr38fQUNZU8K0t-EA

Terrorists are not what they used to be. Neither are WMD. At first WMD were nuclear and other radioactive bombs, or airborn plagues, then pressure cookers and fireworks. Inflation of terms.
