blog: Russian border guards shoot group of 300 terrorists trying to get out of Ukraine
Kyiv Post ^ | July 4, 2014, 9:20 a.m. | Dmitry Tymchuk

Posted on 07/04/2014 2:20:39 PM PDT by WhiskeyX

Last night, Russian border guards shot a group of 300 terrorists who tried to break into the Russian Federation from Donbas.

Putin, as always, plays on multiple fronts. For terrorists, such reprisals are a signal that there is no way back to Russia, and the mercenaries will have to fight to the end on Ukrainian soil.

Seems like something grisly is going on - these Russian “yutes” are excited and recruited to go to Ukraine and fight, then when they come to their senses and try to return home they are shot while recrossing the border by their own countrymen .. double-plus ungood!

If true, this is AWESOME. Russians killing Russians. That’s the best possible outcome.

“But for Russian dumbass-mercenaries and their pro-Russian brothers in Donbas, this is a vivid illustration that Putin abandoned them. And that there are two ways out–either to die for God-knows-what, or to lay down their arms and save their worthless hides.”

No bias there! who knows what the truth is over there anymore. I don’t.

The proud geniuses probably thought that their returning buddies were Ukrainians.

Border guards guard borders. And that’s what they did.

No palaver about “electronic, virtual, cyber-fence”, blah, blah, blah.

This might not be NICE, but it means they’re serious about their border.

Could it be that Russia doesn’t want people sneaking into Russia? How do they know whether anyone sneaking in is pro Russia or wants to promote anti-Russian chaos in Russia?

Yep. The Russians don't mind anyone leaving Russia to fight, just them coming back.

“Could it be that Russia doesn’t want people sneaking into Russia?”

No, it has nothing to do with people sneaking into Russia, because the Russian terrorists were attempting to openly retreat from the Ukraine and return to Russia. Putin has ordered the successors of Stalin’s Second World War era NKVD barrier troops to kill any Russian invaders of the Ukraine from attempting to retreat from the battles in the Ukraine. Putin hired these people to invade and conquer territories in the Ukraine, and he is insisting they must conquer the Ukrainians or be killed.

“This might not be NICE, but it means they’re serious about their border.”

No, it is a combination of Putin sending his paid Russian mercenaries to invade the Ukraine and then killing any of them who would attempt to surrender or retreat, which also gives Putin the opportunity to disavow their actions with his disinformation and propaganda campaigns.

They’re getting paid $300/day to fight for Putin. I guess they decided it isn’t worth it anymore.

“Sounds like propaganda.”

Putin has said he admires Stalin and Stalin’s methods. Putin is simply doing exactly the same thing as Stalin did with his NKVD barrier or blocking units in the Second World War. They simply shoot Russians trying to escape the battle.

The Kiev Post (government controlled news source) posts a blog story about Russians killing Ethic Russians. Yeah that sounds believable.

One clue to look for when trying to filter out propaganda. The keyword terrorist instead of rebels is the clue.

I thought the Kiev Post is privately held, unlike (ahem) virtually every news outlet in Russia.

Surprising how many people don't read (never mind, it is a time-honored FR tradition).

Editor's Note: To counter Russian propaganda lies about the Kremlin's invasion of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula on Feb. 27, Dmitry Tymchuk has set up the Center of Military and Political Research in Kyiv. He served in the Army air defense from 1995-1998, the National Guard from 1998-2000 and in the Defense Ministry in subsequent years on missions to Iraq, Lebanon and Kosovo. His blogs are translated into English by Voices of Ukraine. The Kyiv Post has not independently verified his findings, but will correct any misinformation brought to our attention at news@kyivpost.com or 38-044-591-3344 or any of our contacts at www.kyivpost.com/contacts.

The movie “Enemy at the Gates” portrayed this in the defense of Stalingrad. Any retreat of Russian soldiers was met with Russian machine guns.

LOL. Little to none Russian medias are government-owned. Most of the major ones are government-friendly for one reason or another though.

It is exactly the same for Ukraine, probably worse.

There are more evidence of Ukrainian government meddling in a freedom of press, including killing journalists, than anything like that in Russia.

Google Gongadze, Gurevoi etc.

There are strong evidence that Gongadze was killed under Ukrainian (pro-Western) president order at the time for exposing a government corruption.

It’s cultural, unauthorised retreat or surrender historically considered shameful and treasonous in and it is a felony under a federal law to this day.
You can see footage of a Russian strike aircraft from the Georgian War intercepted missile with it’s engine and shredded by shrapnel but still engaging target as far as it still has payload and another engine keeps it in the air.
On the other hand I don’t think it is the case for Ukraine. Even if there is a truth in the article, the reason for this shooting is that a few rebels are Russian personnel actually. The majority are local Ukrainians or volonteers from anywhere. Who would tolerate an armed gangs on it’s territory?

I agree. The “rebels” are likely Roosian “rebadged” soldiers operating in-force.

The suggestion in some Ukrainian articles is that Putin is trying to get rid of unwanted people. The Russian hardcore nationalists, (who until the Russian Spring Crimean Fever have been critical of him), as well as Chechens and other mercenary Muslims (who’ll be happy enough to start shooting Russians again)
