As the situation in Syria heats up on the heels of the Turkish shoot down of a Russian military jet, the situation in Ukraine is doing the same as the Western-backed fascist Kiev regime is once again poking the Russian bear, presumably at the behest of the NATO powers.
After “mysterious” blasts that took place in the Kherson region of Ukraine over the weekend leaving nearly two million citizens without power in the recently annexed Russian territory, the Ukrainian government is now officially halting aid shipments as “activists” inside Crimea are blocking the repair of the power lines.
The Kherson region is located in Southeastern Ukraine and on the border with Crimea.
The blasts brought down electricity pylons that serve Crimea although the intended target was a currency exchange located in Kherson. A man apparently demanded cash before detonating the bomb in the building, with another bomb being found shortly thereafter outside. A separate explosion took place in Odessa, another city in the Southeastern Ukraine region. Explosives were later found near the power lines according to officials, preventing crews from being able to repair them.
Shortly thereafter, groups of “activists” made up of Crimean Tatars have taken to protest and have blocked the repair crews from restoring power to the areas currently suffering from the outage. The demands of the “activists” are that a tougher line be taken against Moscow. This “tougher line” essentially means doing more to “restore” Crimea to Ukraine and to “take it back” from Russia.
This is not the first political act groups of Tatars have committed in this regard. Ever since September, Tatar “activists” have stalked the border between Crimea and mainland Ukraine and have attempted to block commercial trucks from entering the peninsula.
The Ukrainian fascist government has now responded by decreeing that all vehicles hauling goods to and from Crimea be temporarily halted. As Laura Mills writes for the Wall Street Journal,
Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk asked his cabinet to formalize the decree by drafting a law that would “take into account the interests of our brotherly Crimean Tatar people.”
“We aren’t satisfied with today’s status quo, when an occupying power neglects the basic rights of the Crimean Tatar people,” said President Petro Poroshenko after a meeting with three European foreign ministers. “Crimea is Ukrainian territory. We will defend the rights of the Crimean Tatar people and all Ukrainians who are living on occupied territory.”
While it is unclear whether or not the bombing itself was engineered by Ukrainian, Western, or NATO forces or if it was some coordinated and bizarre robbery plan gone wrong, given the history and methodology of the aforementioned nations and organizations, the circumstances surrounding the bombings are highly suspect. After all, with the bombings coming so close together, succeeding in knocking out civilian power in a highly convenient manner at a highly convenient time, and the resulting measures coming from the “activist” Tatars and the Ukrainian government, it would be reasonable to suggest that a country that would allow pro-Moscow activists to be burned to death in a trade union hall would indeed carry out bombings to achieve a much greater geopolitical goal.
Remember, Turkey and Ukraine have already conferred in order to establish “Muslim Brigades” to be used against Russia in Crimea.
On August 1-2, a meeting was convened at the Hotel Billkent in Ankara, Turkey and was labeled the Second World Congress of the Tatars. This meeting brought together over 200 Tatar NGOs and associations from all over the world. The event was also attended by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin and Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus. Both officials participated in the event as well.
As Zaman reports,
Nearly 200 Crimean Tatar nongovernmental organizations and civil society groups gathered in Ankara as part of the Second World Crimean Tatar Congress to discuss the ongoing crisis in Ukraine and the situation of their brethren in Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in February of last year.
The meeting took place on Saturday at Ankara Bilkent Hotel and Congress Center and focused on the dire conditions under which Crimean Tatars have to live in the face of encroaching Russian pressure on their cultural life. The gathering offered an opportunity for lengthy discussions about how to resolve the prolonged conflict in Ukraine and to maintain Tatars’ threatened community rights under the new administration in Crimea.
But, while Russia and the annexation of Crimea were the focus of the meeting, a foolish and potentially dangerous decision was made between Ukraine and Turkey.
At the meeting, it was announced by Mustafa Abdulcemil Cemiloglu, acting leader of the Crimean Tatars as decreed by Ukrainian President Poroshenko, the creation of a “Muslim Brigade” to oppose “Crimean separatism,” as well as “human trafficking” and the “transportation of goods near conflict zones.” In other words, the creation of a terrorist brigade to combat Russian involvement in Crimea and pro-Russian sentiment and activism in the area.
It should be noted that Cemiloglu was a notorious CIA asset and collaborator throughout the years of the Reagan Administration. He was also the former leader of the Crimea Tatar Majlis.
After the announcement was made by Cemiloglu, he was received by Turkish Recep Erdogan, who assured him of Turkey’s full support for the Tatars against Russia. Turkey has been vocal about the “territorial integrity” of Ukraine and has, like the rest of NATO, taken a strong anti-Russian stance on the issue of Ukraine.
The “Muslim Brigade” was supposed to be based at Herson, near the Crimean border and includes volunteers and jihadists from a number of other locations in the region – “Tatarstan,” Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Chechnya, and Georgia.
Turkey was not to be left out of the mix, however, since it agreed to commit a number of the jihadists currently operating within its own borders for the purposes of destroying the government of Syria to the new Muslim Brigade in Ukraine.
Indeed, in December 2013, Turkish intelligence sent a number of Tatar jihadists to Ukraine so they would be able to assist the Western color revolution in Kiev where the terrorists acted as “security” for pro-European and anti-Russian protests in the Maidan, often suspected of being the culprits behind a number of violent acts resulting in the violent crackdown by police.
As the Voltaire Network reported in its article “Jihadists In Charge of Crowd Control In Kiev Protests,”
They are members of the “Azatlyk’’ (freedom) movement led by young Naïl Nabiullin, and campaign for a Greater Turkey. They are backed by Trotskyist parties such as the Russian Left Front of Sergei Udaltsov, as well as the Turkish government of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. They’ve just come back from Syria, through Turkey, where they had gone to practice jihad against the Syrian government. They seem to be behind the provocations that have led the Riot Police to commit excesses.
With this in mind, it is very concerning that Turkey and Ukraine are moving towards greater provocations against Russia – this time using jihadist terrorists on and inside Russian borders, only days before it shot down a Russian jet over Syria. Such moves clearly increase the likelihood that Russia will be forced to engage NATO and its proxies in a direct military fashion at some point. World War 3 may very well be at our doorstep. It is time the American people and the people of the world wake up to the dangers they face and begin to do something to change the situation before it is too late.
