“Kiev: Eat this grenade, fascist! From … another fascist!”
New, bloody events outside the walls of the Verkhovna Rada were imminent.
The “Maidan” has not finished in Kiev – everyone who to this day thought otherwise can see the truth clearly today.
In such a way, today’s tragedy is a farcical matter.
It turns out that a fighter of the Interior Ministry battalion “Sich” threw a grenade at the National guard (it might be interesting how many of them in their time through Molotov cocktails at Berkut)…
A smoldering peat bog is perhaps the most accurate definition for today’s Kiev. Kiev, internally, looked like it was safe and prosperous until August 31. People are hanging out, walking around, cafes are working, parents are taking their children to school, beggars are begging, and street musicians are playing. How this silence is deceptive became obvious Monday morning, when the Rada adopted, at first reading, the law on “decentralization,” which is a separate conversation.
The brown political substance showed itself again. Its stench was mixed with the smell of blood and gunpowder. Why? Because the peace process, even with the prefix “quasi” is not what it and its general customers want. Do Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk understand? Judging by their reactions, let’s say politely: not quite.
In conversation with “Km.ru,” the political scientist, Director of the Center for Geopolitical Expertise, and member of the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation, Valery Korovin, commented on the tragic events near the Verkhovna Rada:
Valery Korovin: “Everything is going according to the same loop that formed and operated in Ukraine for the past twenty years – “Maidan,” “Victory,” “betrayal,” “new Maidan”…the time came for a new, revolutionary change of government. After all, sustainable conditions for the existence of Ukraine have not emerged in recent years.
And because the situation in the country is extremely shaky and social tensions have almost reached a peak, it is obvious that the next Maidan will be much more radical than the previous one, which, in its turn, was more radical than the “Orange Revolution” of December, 2004. And it’s necessary to realize that radical nationalist organizations are, already today, confidently using Molotov cocktails and grenades.
The ongoing civil war, coupled with the complete decomposition of statehood, has radicalized forms of political struggle. And current events are further evidence of Ukraine logically and systematically approach the end of its history.
It can’t be otherwise when there are no such basic parameters for a state. When there are no elites whose interests are common more than private, when there are no security guarantees, when laws do not work, and where there is no state monopoly over violence.
And here it should be noted that the orientation towards the West itself initially carries a virus of decay and stagnation for post-Soviet countries. The mentality of these peoples is simply fundamentally different from those who inhabit Western Europe and the Americans.
Ukrainian authorities, throughout the post-Soviet history of this country, refused to accept this truth and all current prerequisites which tell us that there is an imminent finale of Ukrainian statehood. The course of history is accelerated and, today apparently, we are all witnesses to this event.”
KM.ru: As far as what is happening in Ukraine now and, in particular, Kiev, are these processes controlled by the West?
Valeriy Korovin: “In Ukraine, as in the Arab world, the West uses the same method of controlled chaos when the initial but not the final parameters of processes and their details are unspecified.
In the specific case of Ukraine, the final option is the creation of a vast zone of instability on Russia’s borders in order to ensure that, as much as possible, she is cut off from Europe. In this way they try to minimize our influence on Europe and prevent the development of a possible Russian-European alliance which could provide dynamic, mutual growth for the economies of Europe and Russia.
The US can’t afford such a scenario as it undoubtedly threatens their global dominance. Accordingly, the maximum effort is being given to cultivate economic and political confrontation between them and mutual distrust and threats. One method of achieving this goal is by creating conditions of instability inside the “Cordon Sanitaire,” which includes not only Ukraine, but the Baltic states.
It doesn’t matter to American strategists how to achieve this destabilization. Will people kill each other, or will deputies of the Verkhovna Rada fight among themselves at meetings – they don’t really care about these nuances. Here we see the classic case where the end justifies the means.”
