Putin Recalls State Duma From Vacation, "Planning Something" On Ukraine Situation

Tyler Durden's picture


In a somewhat disconcerting move, Russian President Vladimir Putin has recalled The State Duma from a planned vacation to participate in an unscheduled meeting because of the situation in eastern Ukraine. As Ukrinform reports, sources confirm "Something is being planned, because many deputies come, probably for a quorum." Rumors are spreading that Putin is set to issue Kiev an ultimatum over recognizing separatists or face military intervention.


As Ukrinform reports,

State Duma deputies, who are currently on a planned vacation, urgently come to Moscow to participate in an unscheduled meeting because of the situation in eastern Ukraine, a source in the State Duma told Ukrinform on Wednesday.


"Maybe something will happen tomorrow. Now this issue is being solved. Something is being planned, because many deputies come, probably for a quorum. Many deputies arrive... and today they already have to be in Moscow," he said.


According to the source, it is still unknown which document is to be considered by Russian deputies.


According to the source, it is clear only that Russia's top-ranking officials "planned something" on the situation in the east of Ukraine if they plan to hold an unscheduled meeting of the State Duma.

It appears Putin is preparing to issue an ultimatum to Kiev (as reports via Google Translate)

Russian attempt to legalize the terrorists as a political entity


Security Council in Moscow lasted until now and almost ended at 21.00 on Kiev.


This said a source close to the Russian State Duma.


According to the information tomorrow, July 23, probably held a joint meeting of both houses of the Russian parliament - the Federation Council on which President Vladimir Putin "may declare any serious initiative."


According to the source , tonight Ukrainian leadership will probably be an ultimatum, demanding a ceasefire and start negotiations in the Ukraine-Russia-"DNR" / "LC".


Thus, Russia will try to legitimize the terrorists as a political entity.


If Ukraine does not agree Putin, according to the interlocutor, may decide on entering the Russian troops in Ukraine under the guise of "peacekeepers."


As reported, after the meeting of the EU Council has learned that the European Union could recognize so-called "DNR" and "LC" terrorist organizations.

*  *  *

Given that Poroshenko has demanded the separatists be labeled "terrorists" under international law, we suspect this is one demand they cannot fulfil... and of course, Ukraine is claiming that the 2 fighter jets shoit down this morning were shot down by and from Russia... sure, with the whole world watching, Putin would do that?

Nope, Putin is gonna give a speech in front of the Duma announcing a new website that has all of Russia's raw data from the attack and why they have come to the conclusion that "X" did it.
Then they can sit back and watch all the Western governments shit themselves, while kicking back with a couple of bottles of Stoli.

i think you are misssing the declaration of Separatists as Terrorists - which becomes a legal exposure as to liability for supporting them - so they can exact damages from Russia to offset the debt that is due - Ukraine wants to $100 Billion in cash or equivalent -US wants Russian property - 7 time zones undeveloped -  end to end

the US will continue with false flags over and over and other gambits which create risk for all concerned especially the Europeans - best to end it with massive support for the separatists -wipe out the Fascists  - Russia is getting blamed anyway and they increase their risk by waiting

Go to Putins  presidential website and read last nights security council meeting. He invited the press for part of it to let the russian people know: the security council meeting is normally done behind closed doors.

Putin has finally had enough of their shit It seems. I can't argue with his point of view. He realizes Russians are going to be continually blamed anyway for everything and negotiating a peaceful process is not being allowed. I think he has showed considerable restraint, certainly more patience than I would have.

Among other things He mentioned that Russian is being issued what amounts to an ultimatum. Basically to sit there and allow a nazi regime an ethnic cleansing of ethinic and culturally related Russian people on his boarder and do nothing or suffer sanctions if he does anything about it. He metioned this is  unacceptable.

This crap isnt about the plane anymore and is fixing to get real. Washington better get their shit together.

I agree... Russia is always going to be on the defensive with Kiev lobbing false allegations and the west claiming it as fact.  Same in politics... you don't want your candidate constantly defending their positions.  Time to get on the front foot. 

Winter is coming, and Putin holds the trump card.  The only wildcard I see is what does this do to the poitical pressure on Bulgaria for SouthStream if Russia goes on the offensive?

I do not like the use of the 'terrorist' label on anything that doesn't conform to government wishes. Surely it needs to be proven via youtube that acts of terror were committed (/sarc) The eastern ukrainians/russians just dont want to be part of the ukraine dont they. If they hold a legit referendum as I thought they were supposed to do a while ago, then surely they should be allowed to breakaway without the us..i mean eu,.. i mean poroshenkos nazis labelling them terrorists.

Maybe some back room conversations were had.... maybe they sounded a little like this...

US:  We want to keep the US$ as the global reserve currency for at least another 10 years.

RUSSIA:  That wasn’t the original agreement… but we’re willing to trade.

US: OK, what do you propose?

RUSSIA:  how about this… you guys overthrow the duly elected Ukrainian government, thereby giving us a reason to reabsorb Ukraine.  In return we’ll generate the perception that we want to end the US$ hegemony, but all the chaos will make the rest of the world queasy, so they’ll rush to the US$ as an apparent safe haven.  You get to keep your money power a little longer and we get back the breadbasket…. Whadya say??

US:  hmmmm…. It screws over the poor, lines the pockets of the rich, and gives the military industrial complex another sandbox to play in…. sounds great.  We’ll take that deal!

Far left and far right can both be authoritarian.... Just look at our parties.... whether you want the govt. to run everything or let you run it and they control it makes not much difference in the end.... at least in my own opinion.... When they're rounding up jews or political opponents.... doesn't matter much if it's your group they're rounding up.

The only difference is that it's difficult to impliment the left solution without being authoritarian.... but don't neglect that there are those on the far right that want you to own the business as long as you do what they say...... implement the police state and put a boot on your neck just as much.

Via the

MUST LISTEN: “The U.S. is militarizing Ukraine… Kiev is conducting a policy of GENOCIDE. The key to resolving the catastrophe of Ukraine is to be found in Washington. That’s where Nazism has to be defeated.” — Sergei Glazyev Economic Advisor to Putin


After what the US government did to Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya – does THIS sound familiar?

from New Insight:

Friends, this is a MUST LISTEN. The words of Sergei Glazyev, the Economic Advisor to Russian President Putin are a stunning wake up call for anyone with the capacity to think independently & critically. For those who understand the over reach of US empire and Washington fascism over the past decade alone (in the name of the precious 9/11 fable), we ignore these realities at OUR OWN peril.? ~SGT

Kiev is clearly conducting a policy of genocide to eliminate the whole population of Donbass… They’re destroying hospitals, kindergartens, schools. The fate they’re preparing for the people of Donbass is serfdom… It is obvious that the United States is fully controlling the Kiev Nazis, Poroshenko personally, and the government, and is pushing them to pursue this war against Donbass to the very end… THIS IS A WAR BY THE UNITED STATES AGAINST US… So we have to understand that the key to resolving the catastrophe of Ukraine is to be found in Washington. That’s where Nazism has to be defeated..”

- Sergei Glazyev Economic Advisor to Russian President Putin

Recorded on June 10, 2014, Glazyev discusses the massive militarization of Ukraine, intended not only to crush Donbass, but to re-take Crimea in order to start another world war for further consolidation of the US hegemony over Eurasia.


The video is in Russian, but it has English sub-titles.  This is quite telling about what they think of our corrupt, scumbag, American government shitheads in D.C.  10mins long, and the last few minutes are very key in this statement.

The key is Angela Merkel. The Germans realise the US and Europe are LT screwed and the Germans may secretly want to join the BRICs bloc. The US is scared shitless about Ger doing a deal with Rus, hence the phone spying crap. Merkel wants R gas & not tar sands / US shale gas. She will do everything she can to save Putin's bacon & stop war. We live in changed time. The US can't dictate to all and sundry anymore, least of all W Europe's pre eminent power.

Some of the language in this is rather hyperbolic but it sets out part of the energy angle.

Regarding Merkel:

Two world wars centered on Germany might just be enough for  the proud Germanic Peoples. They just might like to sit this one out if at all possible. Same goes for most of NATO. The central european members of NATO have the feeling that they just might get traded off for peace (again!). Poland, Hungary, and Czech Republic come to mind here.

Merkel will look out for Germany first (one might describe that as her job).

What the West has done is actually remove reasons for Russia not to retake Ukraine.

U.S. and E.U. supporting a neo-Nazi putsch of the elected President, skullduggery involving our State Department and CONgress critters on both sides, Sanctions, and now demonizing propaganda over a tragedy that no one is sure who is responsible for.

Putin just held a Russian security session yesterday.

Several days after the downing of the Malaysian Boeing in Eastern Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin raised the issue of Russian sovereignty and territorial integrity at the July 22 session of the Russian Security Council.

While saying that he doesn’t see any direct external threats to Russia, he confirmed that Russia would respond adequately to NATO beefing up its presence in Eastern Europe and increase its own defense capability, including in Crimea.

At the same time, he promised to contribute to an objective and thorough investigation into the MH17 tragedy and called for a cease-fire not only for the separatists, but also for Kiev’s government forces, to enable a full investigation into the MH17 crash.

Meanwhile, food imports from Ukraine may go kaput....

Russia is the largest trade partner of Ukraine and Food is around 25% of all Ukrainian exports.

Very interesting what may happen tomorrow.....while Putin's approval rating in Russia is at 83% from last year's 54%.

Standing up to America is what countries need to do...first Iran..then Venezuela...then Tanzania on the FBME bank and now Russia using it's might with China standing shoulder to shoulder with Russia.

Most other nations cave in quickly or get bought out at the top. Sadly, America pays $$$ to get its way around the world while preaching to everyone to reduce corruption.

Question is: When will America understand that it is a naked emperor and decide to live in peace and harmony with the rest of the world?

Thanks of links and comment.  I cannot help gain more respect for Putin's planning - strategies.

Putin has negotated Naval Bases in Cuba, Vietnam and Seychelles.  The Cuba negotiations included deep sea oil contracts off Cuba.

Germany is already on the 'other' side. 

Bosch and Siemens have issued yuan bonds instead of EUR. This was perhaps the first German bond this year.

Germany will open the first hospital EVER, 100% foreign owned in China.

Chinese are even supporting the German football team. As they said, China has 100m German fans which is more than the entire population of Germany :)

Merkel just returned from China and she signed some agreements on auto and aviation like 2 new VW plants in China and buying 123 helicopters as well as financial cooperation. A new silk road is already under formation. :

Frankfurt was just selected a yuan trading hub, even prior to London or Geneva, which says a lot.

There is no BRICS. BRICS is a joke.

There is only China which is important in the BRICS. The rest are all passengers, and India is the worst and should be thrown out before it splits the rest or causes its own decline to influence the others.

High level financial agreements have already been started after the recent trip this month between Germany and China:

Air China and Lufthansa signed a deal too with potentially a JV in the future:

German trade is already more than EUR 67bn last year.

France may piggy back along with Germany else France has no chance because it is becoming weaker every year. Although China has signed some deals earlier this year with French companies. The unemployment and leftist issues are too much in France plus their banks are weak except for BNP.

He wouldnt do it (move troops in) if Germany wasn't on side.  This could be the moment when power formally shifts in Eurasia.


Of course no one knows who shot that plane down, but I have a strong intuition that it was not only agents in Ukraine but that the US knows this and has from the start.  The Russian "10 questions" release allowed the Russians to telegraph that they know what happened, and now the US is in damage control mode while Putin moves with a free hand.  

From 30 minutes after that jetliner went down until yesterday Obama, Kerry et al. were shrieking that they KNEW Russia was responsible and that Putin was despicable for not admiting his role.  Then yesterday this is walked back by "an unamed US govt official speaking on condition of anonymity."  


What a bunch of fucking cowards.   The US may have a president, but it has no leader.  Putin is a leader.  Too bad about the psycopathy...

On the other site she meet Putin in Brasil for a private talk two weeks ago.

But right after! US admitted that they have no proof in the involvement of Russia she made again a very strong statement, "She is not longer watching Putin how he hampers the investigation and sanctions have to follow".

With knowing that this would harm the German industry! So either she is really only a puppy of the US or something strange is going on.

MH17 Chameleon: Operation Rapid Trident II




The announcement of U.S. BREEZE and RAPID TRIDENT II military maneuvers came on May 21, 2014 by Vice President Joe Biden’s office. Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is a newly-named director of the Ukrainian natural gas and oil company Burisma Holdings, Ltd., owned by Ihor Kolomoisky, the Ukrainian-Israeli mafia oligarch, who is known as the «Chameleon». Kolomoisky has raised his own mercenary army, complete with the BUK missiles allegedly used in the shootdown of MH-17. Kolomoisky, the Governor of Dnipropetrovsk oblast in eastern Ukraine, has threatened terrorist attacks against Russian-speaking officials in eastern Ukraine, including assassinations.

A Chameleon is a lizard. Kolomoisky is a Reptilian. He may be the leader to hasten the geoengineering war that provides the ideal habitat for the Reptizoid race. I can see their eggs being warmed by background radiation. Just enough juicy meat (people) are alive. Many are cooked in the war. Such a feast! I so like the crispy bits. A fun fact: a human infested with a deadly disease can be eaten by a Reptilian with no after effects, in most cases. Of course we'll have to keep humans alive. Babies are best, we call them "Poppers" or "Sliders" sort of like you eat oysters which, we, by the way, consider a thoroughly disgusting food!
