Skip to comments.Poroshenko vows to retain east Ukraine
Posted on 05/26/2014 11:16:58 AM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
Billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko says he would not let rebel-held east Ukraine become another Somalia as he prepared to take over the presidency with a clear signal from Moscow that it is ready to work with his government.
Poroshenko has moved swiftly to stamp his authority as Ukraine's new leader after claiming victory in Sunday's presidential election, with partial results showing he trounced his rivals in the first round.
He said Ukraine would press on with an offensive to crush the pro-Russian separatists waging an insurgency in the eastern industrial belt, despite Moscow warning it would be a "colossal mistake".
"There are no talks with terrorists," the pro-Western tycoon and veteran politician told reporters on Monday.
"Their goal is to turn Donbass (east Ukraine) into Somalia. I will not let anyone do this to our state and I hope that Russia will support my approach."

What percent of the vote did Oleh get?
That says it all right there. In store for the Ukrainians - Globalism, mountains of debt, crony corporatism, massive Third world immigration, official oppression, regulations by non-elected Globalist bureaucracies, homosex-ed for five year olds, and this guy:
Poor suckers these Ukrainians...
The biggest gangster oligarch is KGB Putin himself who has looted billions from Russia and hidden it in Switzerland and Lichtenstein. Nobody in the world is more corrupt than the Russians.
Somalia is a Muslim state. Google “tartars ukraine” to get a perspective on the conflict.
Commies hate austerity measures. They never want to pay off their debts. Just like the commies here in the USA.
He also called on Russia to return Crimea, a province on the Black Sea annexed last March by Putin. And he spoke of a bill he is sponsoring to send anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons to Ukraine, a move the Obama administration has so far rejected.
Russia’s population is 17% muslim. Millions of Tatars live in Russia and Putin just gave Russian citizenship to thousands more in Crimea. Russian muslim terrorists from the Caucasus are waging jihad against Christian Ukraine.
Brilliant commentary Joe.
What inning is it...bottom of the fifth?
LOTS of civilians getting killed today.
Video of civilians shot in their cars during the Donetsk airport op, supposedly.
The seizure of the airport suggested a new, perhaps desperate, escalation by the militants who in recent days have appeared to lose the political support of the Kremlin, which indicated that it would respect the results of Sundays election.
Incorrect heading for the video above.
Apparently, these people were shot by a national guard group in Novoaydar, north of Lugansk, NOT the airport.
“Ukraine Forces Appear to Oust Rebels From Airport in East”
Conflicting information, and the times is hours behind
Earlier reports sai “Battalion Vostok” was counter-attacking the Airport during the storm, just after dark, and now this tweet a few minutes ago:
“Lifenews confirms that Donetsk militia took control of the airport.”
Now, does that mean they took it last night? Or that they retook it today?
Other recent tweets say the Rebels have withdrawn about 1/2 mile from the airport, and are holding a line at the “Zasyadko mine and hospital #18”
Poroshenko wants to be the Ukrainian Gorbachev. He will be the last President of a unitary Ukraine if he presses on with the Maidan policies.
He was elected by voters in Ivano-Frankovsk and Lvov. They can keep him.
Putin's Muslim Chechen battalion for folks who may not know.
And the pro Russian candidate Oleh Tsarov got what percent of the vote?
As I said last night, now the dangerous period has begun.
Differing reports about what is happening in Donetsk right now make it hard to divine the truth. One thing is for sure, though. The Maidan Twitterbot Army has suddenly come alive, all repeating the same exact statements.
They are easy to pick out if you search twitter via Bing, and not using the Twitter search.
It doesn’t matter who did/did not vote for Poroshenko. I said last night that he had ONE chance to get this right.
Pay close attention to what the Russians have to say in the morning. That will tell the tale, I think.
The seizure of the airport suggested a new, perhaps desperate, escalation by the militants who in recent days have appeared to lose the political support of the Kremlin,
I’m getting a bad feeling about all this.
I was in hopes things would calm down after the election...but things seem worse.
“who in recent days have appeared to lose the political support of the Kremlin”
That may, or may not, be true, but that something was going to happen at Donetsk Airport soon was telegraphed a day and half ago, when Ukraine banned all flights to Donetsk Airport.
They had been operating daily flights right up to that point.
The rebels didn’t move to take control of the airport until last night, which, IMO, tells me they had gotten a head’s up that something might happen.
New Lifenews video, taken during the day.
That's your opinion. You folks have been using unverifiable twitter reports for a while now. Now it seems like twitter reports are saying there is plenty of activity tonight inside of Donetsk against the separatists.
One photo reports to show Pushlin on the run.
Let's see what happens tonight.
That may, or may not, be true,(MOSCOW) -- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that Moscow is prepare to have talks with Ukrainian representatives following Sunday's election in which chocolate magnate Petro Poroshenko declared victory.
Lavrov said that the Russian government would "respect the will expressed by the Ukrainian people," which meshes with comments made earlier by Vladimir Putin.
In an interviewwith international news agencies on Saturday, Putin blamed the violence and political instability in Ukraine on the West and said he hoped Europe and the US were ready for compromise.
"I would not like to think this is the start of a new Cold war. It is in no one's interest and I think it will not happen," said Putin,
Twitter, 2 minutes ago:
In Donetsk, in Putilov district bridge there’s combats, and a very large number of strong explosions is heard in the airport district
Another tweet 5 minutes ago:
Fighting is reported in city of Mariupol around DPR HQ
That’s not good news for you.
“One photo reports to show Pushlin on the run.”
How many times, over the last two months, have the twitterbots claimed “Pushlin on the RUN!”, does this make??
He might be, he might not be.
Other reports are saying many people have left the administration building to join the street fight on the north end of town.
The APS that attacked the railway seem to have been driven back, haven’t seen anything about them in several hours.
Fighting is reported in city of Mariupol around DPR HQStratego
Thanks for post... good news indeed!
Tailginner.. of course Good news referencing thread “Poroshenko vows to retain east Ukraine” not that (sigh) the Pro-Russians still yet want to fight some more.
Released about two hours ago.
Machine Translated from Interfax:
Russian Foreign Minister requires that the Kiev authorities ceased hostilities in Donetsk, expects OSCE detailed information on the situation.
As noted in the Foreign Ministry said in connection with the receipt of information on armed clashes on the outskirts of Donetsk and existing victims, Moscow urgently appealed to the leadership of the OSCE requested to provide detailed information about the situation there.
“We expect the representatives of the OSCE objective and comprehensive data on this subject, and from Kiev authorities - cease military operations against its own population” - the document says.
It is very early in the morning in Moscow right now.
Correction. You are.
40 minutes ago BING TRANSLATION
“While patrolling the city of Mariupol, Donetsk region by members of the battalion “Azov” of Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, about 9:0 pm one of the Ukrainian forces was attacked by terrorists, and gunfire from the headquarters building of the so-called “Donetsk people’s Republic” on Greek Street.
According to sources “Censor”. “Azov” fighters returned fire. During the battle at the headquarters of gangs “DNI” thundered two powerful explosions. Stationary pillboxes were destroyed at the entrance and on the roof of the building. Killed at least two of the terrorists. Losses among law enforcement officers, soldiers continue to perform tasks to maintain law and order on the streets of Mariupol.”
Since when is the legally elected leader of a sovereign nation acting to remove terrorists from within the borders of that nation a bad thing?
The Putin-media here at FR are Russian liars. This is not hard to figure out, it is clear who the trouble is, Ruskies!
Give Poroshenko a chance, if he is not what he claims to be and corrupt then criticize him, but as of now he is acting properly as leader of Ukraine.
UKRAINE: Ukrain military captured captured airport of Prokofiev Donetsk from Separatists
Ministry of Defence of Ukraine Vladislav Seleznev
26 May at 4.30 militants were captured airport of Prokofiev Donetsk. In particular, there were about 200 people, the bulk of which comprised representatives of other states. Main group was in the new airport terminal. Capture Terminal because created a threat to life of civilian population. In this regard, in order to prevent the negative effects of ATO was made an ultimatum to surrender. Those who were ready to lay down their arms, guaranteed safety/security.
The militants did not accept our conditions. At precisely the clearly specified/ appointed time began action to neutralize the terrorists. After light injury by Ukrainian soldiers, was struck with the use of aviation. The militants, who were in the terminal were destroyed.
At this time explored all objects of the militants. In case of militants did not surrender, on exposed will be dealt a blow with a special high-precision weapons. Tasks of counter-terrorism operation continues.
At the present time, there is not confirmed data on casualties among the participants ATO. Information on deaths of terrorists is being clarified. Tomorrow at the premises of the airport terminal will start work of authorized investigators.
Rob Portman is a pro-fag, judas not worth listening too.
Now confirmed that Pushy didn’t run. So this makes the 10th, or 11th time he has supposedly “fled to Russia”?
Now being reported that the KAMAZ that was hit was flying the Medical Service flag.
Lots of differing reports on the number killed, from 1 to 35.
And a serious war crime, if it is true about the flag.
“The Putin-media here at FR are Russian liars.”
I’m more than a little sick of the DailyKos-style debate tactics of the Obama/Euromaidan trolls.
Disagreement about THE FACTS of an issue isn’t Putin-Media, or Putinistsa, or anything else. I’ve been called a LOT of names, and worse, for trying to find out what is really going on, or posting info from sources not Maidan-approved. (these people have even called the BBC or AFP (Putinista Propaganda) and that is something, in the entire decade+ I have been here, was strictly verboten.
So why is it allowed to stand now?? And this has been going on for 8 weeks now.
No. I said "one photo reports to show Pushlin on the run. The report wasn't that he fled to Russia.
That makes your count of times he fled "to Russia" suspect, since you can't tell the difference between somebody being "on the run" and somebody "fleeing to Russia".
Not really. Slander Putin all you want with these kooky conspiracy theories, at least he is building up his country and rescuing the Russian people from the horrors of Globo-Marxism.
Meanwhile, Globalist meatpuppet Barry Soetoro, who ranks a petulant school yard bully, is wrecking the USA and bringing the American people under the yoke of Globo-Marxism. The same Globo-Marxism that is descending upon the Ukrainian people and the rest of Europe.

You have been repeatedly shown to have said things that are not true and have for weeks spread disinformation here at FR. You refuse to address this every time it has been shown you are lying or spreading disinformation, but continue to do both. So I am coming out with it you are lying and you know it. If it was just a disagreement of facts you would give facts instead of continuing with the lies.
I will ask you again, are you Russian?
The video is from Novoaidar, Luhansk oblast. Ukrainian media reporting this as the work of Russian separatists. Can’t confirm from the video itself, the people in it don’t say who did it.
Putin is not building up his country, he is a kleptocrat who has betrayed his own country and stolen their freedom. He is a terrorist, a war criminal and a mass murderer, guilty of the ethnic cleansing of thousands of innocent Georgian civilians. Putin’s Russia supports every marxist tyranny in the world from the Chi-coms to the Sandinistas and he is helping islamofascist Iran get a nuke to wipe Israel off the map. KGB Putin is the biggest terrorist and murderer in the world. He’s a cancer which must be eradicated.
About count, caww, tcrlaf, thousands on the net like them—
Bane of the modern world the weird ‘’ groupthink’’
All around us these days we see examples of what many come to think of as one of the more
illuminating insights into much of what goes on in our modern world.....
Examples. Some time back, under the heading Thought police on patrol, a well-known US journalist,
Charles Krauthammer, reported how his newspaper had received a petition signed by more than
110,000 people calling on it not to have any more anti-man-made global warming reports......
And lately we have seen the extraordinary and unprecedented campaign by so many naysayers on the
internet to demonise and smear Ukraine and Maidan.... Everything they do and say is
criticised, like UKR has early election, guy seems to win big, but they complain that all couldn’t vote
when the terrorists the naysayers are encouraging would let people vote in some parts of the Donbass.
Or the naysayers complain he is just a candy making rich guy, who will go bad and
rob the country..They hardly admit to the country being robbed big time of 80 billion
by putler and his stooge yanu—asshole...
Or the naysayers complain that new prez is a puppet of obama, when we here in US been telling
them that obama don’t care about UKraine, but is just like putler and the same kind of
fascist/commie who seem to be helping each other to undermine US and Ukraine citizens.
