The General Prosecutor Office of Ukraine’s interim government has issued a statement today declaring the interim governments of the breakaway eastern oblasts of Donetsk and Luhansk to be “terrorist organizations” under Ukrainian law.
The office said that the listing means the beginning of criminal proceedings against the self-proclaimed People’s Republic governments for “subversive activity,” and that they will investigate regional officials for possible ties to the groups.
The People’s Republics were mostly a rhetorical thing before last weekend, when a hastily assembled referendum in Donetsk and Luhansk expressed broad local support for the groups, granting protest leaders a measure of legitimacy, albeit not one recognized by the interim government.
In many ways, this lack of recognition swings both ways, as many in the eastern protest movements don’t recognize the central government, itself formed out of violent protests earlier this year, as the legitimate governing body of Ukraine.
The interim government has long labeled the protesters against their new rule “terrorists,” but today’s declaration marks the first time that actually meant anything legally. The declaration does not appear to have any bearing on the ongoing military invasion of Donetsk and Luhansk, nor does the interim government have a practical way of imposing legal penalties on the People’s Republics right now anyhow, since they are in open rebellion against the military invasion.

The peoples of Donbass & Odessa Oblasts (by US and their imposed Nazi junta called "terrorists") vastly outnumber those in the west, the Banderastan NATO protectorate that the US has put into power.
Good luck trying to supress these anti-fascist people by keeping half of them in terror and kill the rest. How many more will have to die before you realize that these regions are lost to you no matter how many coward hit and run attacks or airial bombing? Or are you and your US patron working on a "final solution" on the Russophone question? Bandera would be proud of his heirs…
The cities of Kramatorsk and Slavansk are sitting on most of the potential gas deposits to be fracked by the Obama Family, and the citizens of these places have protested against this since Yanukovych was in power. This crisis is precipitated by the Empire's unwillingness to allow local dissent get in the way of its business. Going by their practices in Nigeria and other poorly governed countries, the local will see no benefit to this drilling.
Article 258-3 of the Criminal Code (the formation of a terrorist organization) Criteria mentioned there seemed to me like they're claiming to have more information on the locals than I'd buy they do.
Amazing how little they think of just maintaining the credibility of the brand name. Some people don't know a good deal when they see it. Like, because of 'terrorism,' torturing someone to death is ok just as long as you keep axing "where da bombs at." Or in any case it's a huge improvement over drowning 'em ostensibly trying to discover the names of their demon familiars. Jeez, don't wear it out!
A witch hunt is exactly what this will turn into. It will encourage anyone with a grudge against someone else to accuse that person of "terrorism," or being seen with "terrorists," as happened in Afghanistan. There are people in Gitmo right now "against whom no evidence exists" that may never be released, but I doubt the fascist thugs from Kiev will bother with the expense of prisons.
Already you have the 'terrorist' leader Boroday, arrested yesterday at a border checkpoint on a 'warrant' issued by the "court in Lugansk". he was being held for transport to Kiev when he was released by 'gunmen' after a '15 minute shooting and grenade contest'. I imagine it was necessary to transfer his to a court in Kiev because he would probably have been released in Lugansk – his HQ – without all the bullets and grenades.
PS: The 'ginfight' ' turns out to he Kievan 'hyperbole','treachery' at the border is suspected.
and Yats anf turchy are making up the rules as they go along. The next thing is 'special status' for russian-speakers.
PRECISELY. This is a formula that all COMPRADOR elites of conquered people use in order to "reorganize" socitey, and "change their mindset" . Those that are not obedient and cannot accept the new order, must be somehow villanized, so that down the road they will randomly accuse people of terrorism, helping terrorists, blogging on behalf of terrorisits, etc. And more imporantly, the targeted population will be administratively oppressed in thousands of ways, not have job opportunities, access to schools, government jobs, media, etc. etc. This process has been successfully used in Balkans, where the resistance of Serbian population to the imperial takover made them into permanent target in Croatia, Bosnia, and Kosovo. Even in Serba, Western officials openly demand that Serbs change their mindset, I suppose through some form of "reeducation" camps, a modern version of cutlural revolution. Formula has been well practiced so that the "new values" are implemented.
"… keep axing "where da bombs at."
WTF!!! This is a blatantly racist comment: "axing"? "where da bombs at"?
Jeez man, why not just write "n*gger" and get it over with?
If it was just clueless clumsiness, Persnipoles, then get in there and edit that sh*t out.
I imagine there would be people for whom that'd distract from the point.
A Barrett guest years ago talking about Twenty-Four captured it best: ~"You know what nobody ever asks? How is it that you know that they know where 'the bomb' is yet you don't know where 'it' is?"
I think that properly leads to: If you're a practicing sadist, be sure to keep asking your victim where he put 'his bomb,' then you're covered. Keep pounding on that point at your parole board.
Here we go again, using that catch phase "TERRORISM" to demonize ordinary citizens who are oppose to totalitarian rule.
You can thank the Useless Snakes for that.
ha, that is funny. Terrorists calling others terrorists.
Love the bit about "invasion". Ukraine invades Ukraine!
They are obviously using the Amerikan 'rule' book. That can't end well for them. Idiots
When the true terrorists yesterday tried to blow up a pipeline delivering gas to the West from Russia, the headline was amazing!
"Ukraine strengthens gas pipeline security after tamper attempts"
Try , "terrorists in Western Ukraine tried to blow up pipeline", and you get ZERO.
Only Russian newspapers and The Moon of Alabama truthfully report who is benefiting from it, ""We are well aware of the fact that Russia is earning money by transporting its oil and gas to the West through our pipe," [Dmitry Yarosh] said. "Therefore, we'll destroy this pipe in order to deprive Russia of its financing source."
That's for the US media…
I'm think it ironic when the illegitimate government in Kiev when they start throwing around claims of "terrorism" when talking about the eastern oblasts wanting to break away from the illegitimate government who acquired their own power by terrorism and subversive activities. Doesn't seem to help their legal standing.
If, as can be found, the interim governments of the breakaway eastern oblasts of Donetsk and Luhansk have usurped control over Ukraine’s interim government, then of course, The General Prosecutor Office is quite correct and proper in describing those offending governments as “terrorist organizations” under Ukrainian law.
The entire issue of Ukraine, revolves around taking over Territorial Jurisdiction in the proper form.
Here lies the clue to all the nonsense that politicians are embroiled in, and that the gullible will inevitably be drawn into without in the least being conscious of the hazards – Territorial Jurisdiction.
BREAKING THE SPELL OF SELF-DELUSION
The key to understanding 'the greater scheme' of things, is in an understanding of what a country is, without which understanding, people will remain in a state of 'self-delusion' concerning their own affairs and the affairs of others.
The way to arrive at this understanding of the greater scheme of things, without having to reinvent the wheel, is to explore the simple material to be found part way down the source document linked below, under the subtitled heading –

THE BUSINESS OF KNOWING YOUR PLACE http://thereisnodebt.wordpress.com/2014/04/05/the…
Need we be reminded of Tolstoy's correct assertions, that –
In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful ~ Leo Tolstoy
Many see the funny part: totally illegitimate terrorists calling someone else terrorist.
However, there is the part that isn’t so funny: Kiev fascists killed a lot of people in Lugansk and Donetsk regions under the pretext of “anti-terrorist operation” and in Odessa without any pretext. Every member of this so-called “government”, brought to power by the US, is a war criminal. The blood of many victims is on their hands, and this blood is also on Obama’s hands.
Naturally, Kiev puppets and their US masters would call anyone terrorist for the sake of profits.
Quote: “Vice President Joe Biden's son and a close friend of Secretary of State John Kerry's stepson have joined the board of a Ukrainian gas producer. The move has attracted attention given Messrs. Biden's and Kerry's public roles in diplomacy toward Ukraine, where the U.S. expressed support for demonstrators who toppled Mr. Yanukovych's government in February.”

Now, let’s finish with another funny part: these guys are just as corrupt as the previous administration, by they are ridiculously cheap. Remember billions Halliburton got out of Iraq war?
