If the Ukrainian pilot-gunner Nadezhda Savchenko, who declared the other day a dry hunger strike, dies in prison in Russia, a full-scale war between Ukraine and Russia may begin.
This opinion was expressed by the people’s Deputy and oligarch Serhiy Taruta, who earlier held the post of Governor of the Donetsk region.
“Neither the states nor the world community understand the catastrophic consequences that may stem from the death of the heroic Nadezhda Savchenko. The slow and painful death of Nadezhda in a Russian prison will become an impetus for executions like the Heavenly Hundred. This tragedy will trigger uncontrollable processes that could result in massive bloodshed or a fully-fledged war in the region”, — stated Taruta in a message published on Facebook.
Taruta believes that Ukraine will not be able to guarantee security of the Russian Embassy and of workers in Russian companies.
“I want to note that in the event of the death of Nadezhda Savchenko, Ukraine will not be able to guarantee the safety of Embassy officials and workers in Russian companies. The death of Nadezhda will inevitably lead to an escalation in the military conflict in the East, civil protests, and destabilization in the region. In fact, the death of Nadezhda signifies the beginning of a full-scale war. We must do everything possible and impracticable to return Nadezhda home alive,” added Taruta.
At the same time Ukraine has already agreed to compare Savchenko with Christ and the book of Judith.
Ukrainian pilot-gunner Nadezhda Savchenko is the personification of Ukraine and, to a certain extent, is the image of Christ.
Kiev based UNN reported this, quoting the opinion of “Kievian Viktoriya”at the rally in Kiev today in support of Savchenko:
“It represents the will of Ukraine, she gives thanks to all of us. I believe that all of us, Ukrainians, must come to the defense of her country, this has not happened. It’s not enough to say that Nadezhda Savchenko is a victim, she is a heroic woman, a hero! She represents all of Ukraine and even the image of Christ,” Viktoriya told the news agency.
In turn, the Kharkiv nationalists today held a march in support of Savchenko. This was reported by the public “old woman and cat” page on the social network Facebook.
Paintings were publicly presented at the Kharkov event, with one depicting Savchenko with a sword in one hand and the severed head of Russian President Vladimir Putin in the other.
“It very much reminds me of the old Testament history, with Judith and Holofernes, who was an Assyrian military leader and was considered invincible. But… there is always but. He was killed by a Jewish widow, who, when Assyrian troops besieged her native town, came to the camp of Holofernes and cut off his head in the night. It became a heroic symbol of the struggle of the Jews against the Assyrians,” —a certain Liliya Glimbotska wrote in the comments section of the photo.
And that’s how weekends are spent in the funny farm of Ukraine. As you can see with the arrival of spring came the sharp worsening of the disease. Will it ever end? It’s frightening to imagine.
