Ukraine Crisis | Luhansk residential area bombed
YouTube ^ | 7-2-2014 | Daily News

Posted on 07/02/2014 5:08:53 PM PDT by tcrlaf

This video shows a residential area on the north side of Lugansk being shelled. When it zooms in, you can see people standing in the streets, just watching the shells fall.

The area is just north of the Train Station (Large building with a circular road), across the river.

The video was taken from the same area where the Lugansk live traffic cams are, that I found and posted this morning.

The street running past the station across the river, and up the hill is called “Kominterna Ulitsa”

Please tell me who is firing on who. Is it the Russian from Russia firing on Ukrainians ?

I have a pen pal in Moscow and she is very upset that they won’t let russian men in from 16 to 60 and there was a 68 year old man killed by the Ukrainians. The Ukrainians are killing Russian journalists.

Please tell me, what can I tell her, she is very upset, and I don’t know how to tell her that the Russians are at fault.

What topics do you suggest to get her to open her eyes. Thank-you.

The shelling in the vids is all Kiev troops shelling towns and villages in the Southeast.

The Rebels are responding, but not with the massive bombardments the vids show. They just don’t have the heavy guns, or a large number of rocket launchers.

“I don’t know how to tell her that the Russians are at fault.”

The Russians are certainly a party to what is going on, but I can’t honestly say it is “their fault”.

NONE of this would be happening had not the elected government been overthrown in a violent coup, whose first proclamations were that they intended to destroy Russians and Russian Culture in Ukraine, that has a large Russian Minority.

I suppose it is a virtue to not know how to lie.

It's the Ukrainians that live in Kiev firing on Ukrainians that live in Eastern Ukraine.

Russians, aside from a few volunteers, are not involved. Russian troops stay on their side of the border.

With regard to volunteers, people there have relatives on both sides of the border. I am unsure how easy would it be to classify those volunteers, aside from the technicality of them owning a house on the Russian side of the border, just a few miles away.

None of this would be happening if Putin had not invaded Crimea, sown hatred and paranoia in eastern Ukraine and sent his soldiers, weapons and armor across the border.

Interestingly, the shelling likely came from Russian Grads. And, not surprisingly, Russian state media was on hand to record the grisly results.

History must not be your thingy, eh?
If you recall, the coup in Kiev, and the proclamations to wipe out Russians, and Russian culture in Ukraine came BEFORE Crimea.

The genocidal war criminal KGB Putin invaded Ukraine unprovoked, which he planned for years, and which his traitorous puppet Yanukovich helped him do by weakeneing the Ukrainian defenses in Crimea and leaving it defenseless on purpose.

You continue to repeat the same falsehood. There was never any proclamation to wipe out Russians or Russian culture. Indeed, in the repetition, the libels become ever more outrageous. There was a law passed in the Rada, but which was never signed off on by the then interim president, that would have repealed the prior government’s decision to make Russian an official language. There was never anything that even suggested that the Russian language or culture would be suppressed. That is the very lie that Putin has used repeatedly to create conflict in the east. You should be ashamed of yourself.

That is just wild speculation, (mixed with hyperbole).

By the way, did you know the U.S. has a war plan for the Invasion of Canada, that we update every ten years or so??

I wonder if that plan estimated the time it would take to pacify Canada? Does it drop every revision?

Soon traitors here in America will be demanding that Spanish should be an official national language because of the large Spanish speaking minority, just like the Russky traitors in Ukraine demand.

So what you’re trying to say is that it is just hyperbole that KGB Putin planned this unprovoked invasion for years, but it’s true that the USA plans to invade Canada. The hero Putin would never behave the way evil America does though, right?

Yannukovich reorganized the Ukrainian forces, pulling troops out of Crimea and allowing Russian terrorists to infiltrate Crimea for years.

REALLY??
Now you are the one that is lying now. Do you think people are stupid?

TSo, the second night after the coup, the FIRST THING the Rada did not do was to move to remove the Russian Language as equal to Ukrainian? And that didn’t spark off immediate protests in the Southeast and Crimea?

As I have repeated NUMEROUS times before, the Russians knew all along EXACTLY what was happening in Ukraine, and had a plan to act to secure their strategic bases should the government fall in a coup. They would have been grossly irresponsible not to.

Putin isn’t as dumb as Obama, and the Russians look more long-term than the academic minions around Obama do.

To not think that Russia would react to the coup was simply stupid.

Nobody ever attacked or even threatened Russia’s base in Crimea. The Ukrainians only offered token resistance to KGB Putin’s unprovoked invasion. They never posed any threat to Russia’s base in any way, they overthrew a corrupt traitorous illegitimate tyrant who looted his own country of billions and fled to Russia to escape justice.

You cite to a Bulgarian government website and a web posting by someone with the pseudonym “fairleft”. Both sources are tendentious to say the least.

The language law that was passed but never enacted had sought to repeal a controversial law of 2012 that had been forced through the parliament by the ousted former president Yanukovich which had made the Russian language an official language of Ukraine. The rest is just hyperbole.

Again, there was never any proclamation to wipe out Russians or Russian culture, notwithstanding what Putin’s propagandists would have one believe.

You also appear at the end of you post to invoke the Right Sector, Putin’s usual bogeyman, but your post trails off at that point, so it’s not quite clear what point you were trying to make.

The ones doing the most butchery are the Kiev military, especially the Nazi Pravi Sektor. They’re killing civilians and they know it.

Lol...

So, you rewrite history, claiming that all of the anti-Russian statements after the coup never happened. Very liberal of you. AN OUTRIGHT LIE, but very liberal, just the same.

Someone stupid and gullible, not paying attention, might actually swallow your BS, but I won’t, nor should anyone that uses a brain to think.

Let us review, shall we??

After the embarrassment of September 2013, on the heels of Putin rejecting Obama’s plans to bomb Syria,...

...”leading neocons, (and radical Obama supporters upset at Obama’s “Embarrasment on the world stage), such as National Endowment for Democracy President Carl Gershman, identified Ukraine as a key piece on the chessboard to checkmate Putin. (See Consortiumnews.com’s “What Neocons Want from Ukraine Crisis.”)

The Ukraine crisis really emerged from the European Union’s offer of an association agreement that President Yanukovych was initially inclined to accept. But it was accompanied by harsh austerity demands from the International Monetary Fund, which would have made the hard life for the average Ukrainian even harder.

Because of those IMF demands and a more generous $15 billion loan offer from Russia, Yanukovych backed away from the EU association, angering many western Ukrainians and creating an opening for U.S. neocons, such as Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Victoria Nuland and Sen. John McCain, to urge on protests to unseat Yanukovych.

In February, as the Ukraine crisis worsened, Putin was preoccupied with the Winter Olympics in Sochi, but he went along with a compromise plan on Feb. 21 in which Yanukovych agreed to reduced powers and early elections (so he could be voted out of office) as well as to pull back the police. That opened the way for violent attacks by neo-Nazi militias who overran government buildings on Feb. 22 and forced Yanukovych and his officials to flee for their lives.

With the U.S. State Department endorsing the coup as “legitimate,” a right-wing government quickly took shape under the leadership of Nuland’s hand-picked prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk. Four ministries were given to the neo-Nazis in appreciation of their key role in the coup, including the appointment of Andriy Parubiy as chief of national security.

The new regime immediately displayed hostility toward the ethnic Russians in the east and south, including sending wealthy “oligarchs” to serve as the new regional governors and dispatching neo-Nazi militias – reconstituted as the National Guard – to crackdown on dissent.

You can try to lie, and push whatever narrative you want, but anyone INFORMED about what is really going on is going to reject it.

Russian psychopaths in Ukraine who’s strings are being pulled by the head psychopath Putin just like in Georgia. That has been the source of violence and trouble in Ukraine for 20 years, now the clean up is going to rid Ukraine of the corrupt bastards installed in every level of Ukraine govt, military, banking etc by the Kremlin. Even the people in eastern Ukraine want these Russian psychopaths gone.

Americans and Canadians are not psychopaths like Russians. Americans and Canadians are the closest of allies and the day will come we will fight the Russians together as allies. Which side will you be fighting for Putinista troll?
