Oleg Tsarev – Anti-Fashist
Translated from Russian by Kristina Rus
A year ago on the Maidan we heard shouting about democracy, about European values in Ukraine. After the change of power nothing of this sort materialized.
This was a comment for “Anti-Fascist” about information regarding a possible coup d’etat in Ukraine from the Chairman of the Parliament of Novorossia, the ex-Deputy of the Verkhovnaya Rada, Oleg Tsarev.
“Moreover, the situation became much worse, and under conditions of full-scale hostilities in the South-East, the growing discontent of the population of Ukraine whose social benefits were cut, someone must be held responsible for it. The role of the “sacrificial lamb” was given to Petro Poroshenko”.
According to available information, the structures close to Turchinov and Yatsenyuk, with direct support from the U.S. State Department are organizing “Narodnoye Veche” (“Popular Assembly”), which will gather at the initiative of the Council of Maidan. During the Assembly a vote of no confidence will be given to the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
“All this is confirmed by the fact that after the holidays on the initiative of the Federation of Trade Unions of Ukraine an all-Ukrainian protest is planned in Kiev at the building of the Verkhovnaya Rada and the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
The organizers intend to remind the President and the government of Ukraine on the need to observe the pre-election promises to reform the socio-political and economic spheres, raising the standard of living of citizens in the country, and the like. The protesters will demand increased wages and compliance with the terms of collective agreements at industrial enterprises and institutions of Ukraine.
His interest in joining this protest was expressed by Prime Minister Yatsenyuk, who is trying to use it against Poroshenko. To this end, he instructed his supporters from the People’s Front, using the capabilities of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Avakov, to meet with leaders of trade unions and to agree on the future direction of the protest.
To counteract the intentions of the leadership of the Federation of Trade Unions of Ukraine to picket the presidential administration, the Cabinet of Ministers and the Verkhovnaya Rada, the Minister of the Interior Avakov instructed to establish control over the activities of the heads of the Federation of trade unions, and, primarily, Chairman Drapyaty and his Deputy Saenkom, including, by visual surveillance and listening to phones.
So, according to my information, wiretaps were already installed for Deputy Chairman of the FTU Saenko Vladimir Vladimirovich, in particular, phone # 289-31-50, 067-232-02-00. 5 leaders of FTU were taken under illegal “watch” by the Ministry of Interior. As far as I know, on January 15 the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov held a meeting, which was attended by the head of the SBU Valentin Nalyvaychenko and representatives of the Prosecutor General. The main theme of the meeting was harsh actions of law enforcement agencies of Ukraine in respect to the planned for January 20th protests by the “Right Sector”. Following the meeting, a decision was made about the need to prevent supply of weapons from the zone of ATO to the activists of the “Right Sector”, and to restrict the entrance to Kiev of radicalized youth for the period from January 16 through February 23. In the case of resistance an order to open fire is given.
Also on January 16 at 13.00 the head of the SBU Nalyvaychenko held a meeting at which the respective heads of agencies were told that in case of successful realization of the upcoming protests by the Right Sector, they will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from service.
Poroshenko was not smeared with the blood of Maidan, he did not participate in deciding to murder people so that Maidan would receive its sacrificial victims. During the Maidan he spent much more time in the administration of President Yanukovych, than on the square. In particular, he climbed on a tractor with an attempt to stop the coming protesters at the request of one of the most influential people close to Yanukovych.
Poroshenko turned out to be too independent, having, as a former Minister of Foreign Affairs, many personal contacts abroad. He is not as obedient as the Western curators would like him to be. His peaceful rhetoric is caused by pragmatic interests. In the case of a military scenario the influence of the military battalions, coordinated by Avakov, Kolomoisky and others, will increase, which will contribute to the weakening of Poroshenko’s power. Moreover, it is clear that Ukraine will lose the war. As has happened before in history, the US can easily dump “the contractor”. Let me remind you, war crimes have no statute of limitation. In addition, in Russia Poroshenko successfully operates a chocolate factory, which suggests that he has good connections in Moscow. All this can not please the Americans.
Whether the third Maidan will be successful, time will tell. In the meantime my friends from the Parliament are taking their families out of Ukraine in anticipation of disturbing events.
