    Russia General

    Reuters - Russian 'food crematoria' provoke outrage amid crisis, famine memories Imported cheese from Europe now apparently poses a serious security threat to Russia. Good thing Putin stepped in in time and ordered to execute all those liberal gay foods.

    I'm pretty sure Gazprom counts as state owned as well.

    I'm not entirely sure, but if they are part of the national guard its kinda their job to take guns, so they are kinda within the law. And with the stuff at Mukachevo they were fighting criminals, until it turned out that the criminals actually belong to government. I agree with most of what you are saying, but I am kinda guilty of living in a rich society with all benefits at the moment. :) As for nationalism being a crime, I always admired the Germans for having the guts to allow the NPD instead of stepping on freedom, but there's always the swastika being pretty much banned. One thing I always dislike though is calling all countries puppets of the western banks. Yes, the governments are often corrupted, but they are criminals for their own benefit. What was really a puppet government was the old Ukrainian government. Most had extremely close ties to Russia with it even reaching as far as with Medvedchuk, who is still around. The godfather of his daughter is Vladimir Putin. The problem now is that although the old government fled to Russia, you still have these politicians around. And they are not only more loyal to Russia, but they are also highly involved with local criminals and the Mafia. With that out of they way, most people are still criminal for their own benefit, and will go where they see the most money. If for them its suddenly more beneficial to go with the EU for example, they will ditch Russia. But in my opinion that's not really what constitutes a puppet. The master chooses the puppet, not the other way around. And money leaving the country is also because people do it for their own benefit. Banks don't force Russian oligarchs for example to transfer their money to the west. The oligarchs do it to keep their money safe, tax free and invisible for the russian economy. I guess what I'm trying to say is that the fault lies within the corrupt officials and criminals within the country, not the outside.

    So these guys are on the side of Lanyo, together with the police. Kinda shows the level of corruption. And I thought Poroshenko wanted to disarm illegal armed gangs...

    So there was apparently some kind of shootout between Right Sector and the Mafia, which has ties to the deputy Mikhail Lanyo in Mukachevo. The shootout happened at a sport center owned by Lanyo. RS got into the confrontation on their own behalf, without the approval of the government, meaning it was an illegal move. 2 members of RS died and 4 were wounded. Right Sector had apparently also patrolled the region before, removing illegal casinos and confiscating contraband (Which they possibly cant do because they are not the police?). So basically there is now preparations for a standoff between RS and the government. The locals seem to be on the side of RS. Well at least thats what I got out of it all. At the moment everything is pretty confusing, so I wonder where this is going. http://youtu.be/EeCCG-PMFPU http://youtu.be/Ce9TI3hp_R4 Special Police on the way to Mukachevo The government is still quiet and does not directly blame the incident on right sector. There is only talk about "armed gangs".

    Well, getting drilled is one thing, but running around fully equipped in a conflict zone with a rifle is another thing.

    I thought the different dates would make it obvious, but I sometimes forget not everybody speaks russian. :D Anyway, the same guy supposedly played a captured right sector member back in Slovyansk. To me those guys actually don't look the same on a second look, but theres this video: Here he says that he did not fight in Maryinka (Because he was buying alcoholic supplies) and that he has no idea about any casualties.

    http://youtu.be/gY8dkejkk5Y How long are we still going to believe these videos of "captured" "soldiers"? Or its just total BS propaganda, like all the other countless times. Also he is saying that the army attacked the separatist controlled Maryinka, even though we know it was the other way around, so its more likely that more separatists got captured. http://youtu.be/8oiFSWnG-HE I do not condone this treatment of prisoners btw, but its still worlds better than what we see from the separatists side, like cutting of ears, forcing them to dig their own graves and so on. Meanwhile in Rostov http://youtu.be/vthMoNWRqZY

    Its not about responsibility, its about the separatists launching a full scale offensive. There is no risk of escalation, this is the escalation. And if you are really on about responsibility so much, why do you have to make it so dodgy? There is only one side that launched an offensive.

    Why is this still a discussion? The separatists launched an offensive on Marinka, breaking the relative peace. There were no separatists there, then they came, died a bit and left. The end. In the attack they reportedly killed at least about ~30 people and attacked with about ~10 tanks, that is a huge difference to the usual 2-4 dead due to shelling in the entire area.
