I can hear sadness in their voices. Small things like this video truly break my heart. Russia really needs guys like them. I keep this hope that when SHTF, these people will be able to move to Russia and to find a second home in Russia.

Число добровольцев в ополчении ДНР превышает возможности по их вооружению – Захарченко
23rd of April, 2015. Donetsk People’s Republic, Novorossiya.
Donetsk People’s Republic has more volunteers than it has weapons to arm them, the head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko says.
“At the moment, the number of volunteers is greater than our ability to arm them. People see what happens, they make a realistic assessment of the situation, and they understand that Kiev wants to press forward with war. They want to protect their homeland. In February, the number of volunteers was 110 percent of our goal.”
Volunteers started being mobilized in the DPR on February 9. In mid-March, up to 200 volunteers have been joining the ranks of Donetsk Armed forces every day.

Economy of Ukraine

1. Ukrainian Officials Turn Access to Combat Zone Into Big Business [Source]
April 23, 2015: Ukraine – Scandals, theft and corruption in the military have reached levels unseen before. Apparatchiks, appointed by the US-NATO occupational government, consider corruption to be unavoidable and necessary evil. Like Oksana Ermishina, the Chairwoman of the Public Committee for Internally Displaced Persons, noted that in a situation of organizational chaos where nothing works as it should, “money talks, and until a clear system of automated procedures exists, corruption will only continue.”

“Plans are to close the mine, although it is more profitable to buy our coal than African or Russian,” says Eduard, a miner from the Dnepropetrovsk region.
Earlier, a group of protesters got into the presidential administration building for talks. Miners said they had forced their way through with practically no resistance offered by police. “The only thing they asked for was not to break the presidential gate,” one of the miners said.

Ukraine is often called a European Mexico. It’s an entrance to the well-to-do Europe for people from the Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine, and also from Moldova, Belorussia and Georgia. EU seeking to use readmission agreements to guarantee removal of irregular migrants, sends more and more of unwanted migrants to Ukraine, where people are being kept in jails and death camps.
EU remitted for readmission purposes about 500,000 euro to the Kiev authorities. However, these funds were misappropriated.

7. Ukraine a Vector for GMO Poison’s Spread Through EU [Source]
Regarding American biotech companies and their attempts to infest the planet with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and in particular their attempts to corrupt the whole of Europe with their unwanted poison through a backdoor (Ukraine), has prompted Russia to speak up for their Eastern European neighbor.
“Euromaidan” has stripped Ukraine of both its freedom and its ability to determine what is best for itself. From a military set upon its own people, to an economy looted by foreign interests, to a government directed literally by foreigners who chair it, to now fields to be sown with genetically altered poison, the ruination of Ukraine is nearly complete and a lasting testament to what the West truly means when it says “democratization.”

No One Will Buy GMO-Tainted Crops

Bloomberg in its report “U.S. Forced to Import Corn as Shoppers Demand Organic Food” claims:
A growing demand for organics, and the near-total reliance by U.S. farmers on genetically modified corn and soybeans, is driving a surge in imports from other nations where crops largely are free of bioengineering.
Imports such as corn from Romania and soybeans from India are booming, according to an analysis of U.S. trade data released Wednesday by the Organic Trade Association and Pennsylvania State University.

The humiliation of a nation historically self-reliant agriculturally having to import something as basic as corn because everything grown domestically is poisoned is a lesson any Ukrainian seeking to preserve what is left of not only their dignity, but their sense of self-preservation should take note of. Even as the “miracle” of GMO evaporates amid an increasingly astute market in the United States, US corporations are buying off Ukraine’s infinitely servile regime to place Ukraine’s neck into the same noose.

8. Germans in Ukraine to play in human Safari [Source]
Cecchini tedeschi in Ucraina per giocare al Safari
April 20, 2015: Donetsk – Shocking testimony from our correspondents in Ukraine: “Germans are coming to Ukraine to participate in human Safari. They come fully equipped with the expensive accessories, like in a Hollywood action movie. Most of them are snipers. They do not care about the war. They are in Ukraine just to take part in shooting people. They shoot anyone, old men, women and sometimes children, as if they went to hunt humans.”
“What you see in the picture is the serial number of a German rifle taken by a German woman sniper, who participated in this ‘safari’ and was killed by a Donetsk sniper.” This is his interview.

10. Evidence that Ukraine becomes the source of counterfeit money [Source]
April 22, 2015: Brussels – Economy of Ukraine being appallingly in the red has stumbled across yet another problem. Residents of different parts of the country started complaining about circulation of counterfeit dollars and Euros distributed not only by some fishy money jobbers but also quite legal exchange offices. The police have been filing numerous complaints acknowledging it’s actually helpless to solve the problem. Also deceived Ukrainian currency buyers have flooded local forums :
The correspondence between Minister without Portfolio in charge of anticorruption fighting Oleg Parakuda and First Deputy Head of the National Bank Oleksandr Pisaruk reveals that the officials are not only well in the know of those events but appear to be the moving force behind them (perhaps they are trying to keep hryvnya afloat this way).
The correspondence was posted in the Internet by a hacker group Cyber. It looks like Parakuda and Pisaruk are intensely trying to escape international scandal after penetration of counterfeit dollars and euros into the EU space. However, judging from the letter of the ECB president Mario Draghi to High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini the scandal is pending.
