#Commentary of Valery Skorokhodov on Kiev’s intentions to ‘cleanse’ Donbass
The Ukrainian authorities openly demonstrate their intention to ‘cleanse’ Donbass. The deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, Ivan Winnick, did not hesitate to say that, at the most appropriate option, which he called voluntary, it would be necessary to carry out a ‘police cleanse of elements, which might mimicry to peaceful population. And he called the second option an enforcement one.
This alleged people’s choice is not a street passer-by, but a member of the presidential faction and the Secretary of the National Security and Defence Committee. These are the options proposed today by the Kiev regime – either to destroy the Donetsk citizens immediately, during a military operation, or to ‘cleanse’ targetedly later. The neo-Nazi power does not announce other proposals, and there is no reason to.
Poroshenko has no intention of negotiating, compromising, finding points of contact, or mechanisms of interaction. There are many examples of the inability and unwillingness of people, who are accustomed to a seizure of power since “Maidan”, to engage in dialogue with their compatriots. For example, there was a case, when a member of “ATO” had applied physical violence as an argument in a conversation with the Head of the Ukrainian public organization of veterans-submariners Sergey Shabovtoy.
In the Ukrainian legal field, the official Kiev is going to enshrine these aspirations for the forceful takeover of Donbass, not without the support of American colleagues, in the “Reintegration Act”. The consequences of the implementation of this instrument will be a veritable scourge for a simple people whose fate the Kyiv authorities do not care about. But the Poroshenko regime has never succeeded — the Republics of Donbass live and develop.
The reality is that Ukraine is being ruthlessly torn apart by oligarchs, newly-hatched politicians and neo-Nazi factions, who are allowed to do absolutely everything. Naturally, all these criminals want to take Donbas. We, the inhabitants of the Republics, have opposed such a monstrous violation of all conceivable principles. The West purposefully, but, in my opinion, extremely short-sightedly indulges Kiev and is silent about the criminal deeds of the Kiev puppets.
