Censorship or Sanity? – Blocking Enemy Russian Agitprop on Ukrainian TV FAQ

Euromaidan PR

Imagine if the Japanese had ‘merely’ surrounded Pearl Harbor in 1941, invaded with 30,000 soldiers, issued ultimatums to American troops, took over U.S. ships, beat up international journalists, bulled through a ‘referendum’ under military occupation and finally, annexed Hawaii… Can anyone seriously doubt these actions would likewise have been considered an act of war by FDR and the United States?


In addition to armed military occupation and loss of territory, Ukraine has been deluged with Russian ‘news reports’, studio talk shows, blog and Youtube sites which knowingly present fake and untrue stories. There are three target groups for Russian disinformation: their own citizens, low-information Ukrainians, and the uninformed world opinion. Their unprecedented feverish rhetoric continues to openly advocate a breakup of the Ukrainian state and stokes widespread paranoia.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry responds to Russia’s demands for federalization

“The ultimatum and the didactic tone of these statements demonstrate that as the real aggressor Russia does not accept any control over its own behavior. Under the barrels of its machine guns, this aggressor demands only one thing — the complete capitulation of Ukraine, its dismemberment, and the destruction of Ukrainian statehood.”

Euromaidan PR

The Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed outrage at recent proposals by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation for the “federalization” of Ukraine. The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov discussed these proposals on Russia’s state television program “Sunday Times” (Vremya Voskresnoe) on March 30.

The Kremlin states that Ukraine violates the rights of its Russian-speaking population, particularly concerning the language of education; yet, according to statistical data, Ukraine fulfills the need of the Russian-speaking minority to study in Russian. However, the same cannot be said about the availability of Ukrainian schools in Russia…

Brothers and sisters!

Here is the summary for March 29 (for the summary from the previous day, see Summary of March 28).

The bad news:

1. Moscow is trying to make a feint with our weapons and military equipment in Crimea.

It is well known that Putin publicly declared earlier that weapons from the military bases that remained loyal to Kyiv would be given back to Ukraine. Today we tried to find out at the Ukrainian Defense Ministry which options are truly being offered by the Kremlin.

We know perfectly well that not a single word of Putin’s should be trusted. And this is exactly what transpired. Formally, there is no single Ukrainian military base in Crimea that has completely gone over to the enemy side. Just like there is no single base that remained absolutely…

1939407_715682645130366_385350399_nSome of the very good news about the Crimean troops who up to a short while ago were on our side.

A huge number of those who took the Russian or Crimean oath (may they rot in hell), are very unhappy with the development of events and their own future. They are in a terrible state. Most of them are being offered retraining in the Krasnodar Territory or the republics in the Northern Caucasus.

If they don’t like it, they have to write a report. Basically, no one needs traitors.
In many cases they have tried to go back to their unit in some way or other.
As if a demon had taken them over and wanted to look around.
We really don’t want potential “moles” in our army.

Now for the hotheads among the armchair and…
