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 LB.ua 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 LB.ua 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 LB.ua , 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 LB.ua, 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?

More like calling his bluff big time!

Russian troops on the ground in Eastern Ukraine is a huge upping  the ante!

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.

Don't bet on it...

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

So then wouldn't the US be liable to damages for supporting the Syrian "resistance", Hamas, etc. etc.?

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.

What if....The whole thing was staged and Russia will be allowed to invade and annex Ukraine in exchange of staying away from the ME?

Low % thought, but on a divide and conquer world everything is possible.

No matter who you rooting for, what is happening in Ukraine is criminal

cowdiddly's picture

Yes its criminal and Obama owns this one. He needs to demand Nulads immediate resignation but is playing golf instead. What ifs don't matter especially about you or me. I am not rooting for anyone other than maybe the people of the Donbass, just disgusted with our foriegn policy. These crack heads don't seem to understand they are not dealing with some Arab backwater with plastic explosives in their underwear.

In retrospect good thing Ukraine gave up it's nukes.

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!

Very plausible though. You never know with these people and their back rooms.

AnAnonymous's picture

That is a dangerous narrative. Reabsorb Ukraine? 'Americans' on this site has that Russia by taking over Crimea have won land. This narrative indicates that, actually, Russia has lost Ukraine minus Crimea.
Not conform to the herd thinking and 'americans' are conformist, not rebellious people.

it is not narative, it is history, ukraine exist only since 1954, before it was russian land....

It only exists since 1954? So what? Once it is no longer included, it is no longer included.

Yeah Putin would absolutely shoot down 2 jets...

Since he is calling Duma back to issue an ultimatum, he definitely would.

Tyler Durden is so naive.

Like Snowden is naive.

He's stuck in the land of the free and home of the state run propaganda media.

Where journalists have been murdered and beaten.

Where gays are openly beaten in the streets and Police just laugh.

Welcome to Putins Right Wing Conservative Russia.

BTW, Hitler's Right Wing Conservative Germany was the same way.

The commonality is CONSERVATIVE AUTHORITARIAN personality defect.

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.

Brit_Abroad's picture

Sorry, absolute tosh !!

What is the opposite of authoritarian ?

More authoritarian......or no authoritarian ??

A "right wing" nazi isn't !! He is merely another flavour of "left wing"

This whole right left thing is just so wrong.

But just try and explain it to people, see that glazed look come real fast
