Ces informations ne seront probablement pas relayées par les médias officiels parce qu’ elles démontrent que l’Ukraine de Porochenko est déchirée de l’intérieur.
L’ancien assistant du ministre de la Défense de l’Ukraine, le «major-général» (équivalent d’un général de corps d’armée en France) Aleksandr Kolomiyets, est passé avec armes et bagages du côté de la résistance Novorusse. Avec armes et bagages, ou plus exactement avec d’autres officiers de l’armée nationale ukrainienne.
«Je suis Alexander Kolomiyets, un major-général des forces armées ukrainiennes … Mon dernier poste était celui de conseiller du ministre ukrainien de la Défense et analyste principal de la défense, » déclare-t-il à l’ouverture de la conférence qu’il a donnée à Donetsk. Il ajoute: «Je vais travailler pour le bien de la République populaire de Donetsk. ». « Observez qui se bat actuellement; seulement les volontaires de la Garde nationale. » « «Bientôt, il va y avoir des troubles au sein de l’armée. Ils ne comprennent pas les ordres qui leur sont donnés, de tuer des civils. Nous allons voir que d’ici l’automne, tout va changer.« .
Ensemble le général de corps d’Armée et les officiers qui l’entourent sont venus apporter leur concours aux forces armées de la République populaire de Donetsk. Le général est une recrue de premier plan pour la rébellion du Donbass, non seulement parce qu’il est un officier de très haut rang qui connaît l’ennemi kiévien de l’intérieur, mais en plus il connaît très bien la région militaire de Donetsk pour y avoir passé 19 ans à sa tête. C’est donc également une perte très dommageable pour la junte de Kiev.
Les purges constantes à l’intérieur des rangs ukrainiens des services armées et de sécurité, les manifestations populaires contre l’omniprésence américaine, tout cela commence à peser très lourdement sur les vrais Ukrainiens qui ont le souci de leur pays et de leurs familles.
Le général et ses amis ne sont pas passés du côté novorusse sur un coup de tête. Au préalable, ils ont pris soin de mettre leurs familles à l’abri des représailles kiévienne. Selon lui, nombre de ses camarades commandants cherchent à passer du côté des indépendantistes, ils seraient une centaine :
« Le moral de l’armée ukrainienne est au plus bas, officiers et généraux se rendent compte du caractère criminel de la politique du pouvoir en place à Kiev et ne veulent plus combattre ».
Avant lui, l’ex-responsable des douanes à Lugansk, Oleg Tchermoussov, avait aussi quitté son poste pour rejoindre les indépendantistes. Dernièrement les frères Alekseï et Youri Mirochnitchenko, attachés à l’ambassade d’Ukraine à Paris (attachés au Renseignement extérieur d’Ukraine), avaient rejoints les séparatistes en raison de leur désaccord avec la politique de Kiev. Et ce sont encore deux autres recrues de choix, qui viennent du cœur du système ennemi, renforcer la cause de la Nouvelle Russie.
Les deux frères ont décidé de quitter leur travail à Paris et de rentrer chez eux à Lougansk. Ils affirment être en total désaccord avec la politique menée par le régime de Kiev. Ils ont rejoint par leurs propres moyens Lougansk où ils ont donné une conférence de presse pour expliquer les raisons de leurs actes :
« Mon frère et moi nous avons vu ce qui se passait en Ukraine, l’arrivée au pouvoir de certaines personnes. Nous avons décidé de partir et n’ayant nulle part où aller nous avons pris la décision de revenir chez nous à Lougansk […] Nous n’avons été contraint par personne, nous avons pris cette décision volontairement. Nous ne pouvions raisonnablement plus continuer à travailler pour le régime qui est en place en Ukraine. Ce sont tout simplement des traîtres, des fascistes et des agents à la solde d’autres nations, ils mènent notre pays à la ruine.».
Il faut être courageux dans ce climat de purges et de représailles pour manifester à Kiev contre les Américains qui ont investi le gouvernement avec trois ministres-clefs:
C’est ce qu’ont fait il y a quelques jours ces Ukrainiens à Kiev. On entend très clairement les manifestants crier: « US go home! »

Cela n’empêche pas le régime américano-oligarque de Kiev de masser du matériel et des hommes sur la ligne de contact du front ainsi que le montre la carte ci-dessous, qui fait le point du positionnement des troupes ce matin 24 juin 2015. Les troupes de Kiev sont en bleu:
Néanmoins les soldats ne sont certainement pas enchantés de devoir s’affronter à leurs ex-compatriotes. Ils ont présent à l’esprit les allées des tombes de combattants qui s’allongent et se multiplient dans les cimetières.
Ces dernières heures, la ligne de front est restée stable mais les pilonnages se sont poursuivis sur Donetsk, Gorlovka, Marinka et Shirokino, notamment. L’intensité des combats au nord-ouest de Lugansk augmente également.
La guerre en Ukraine n’est pas encore terminée, le régime mis en place par les Américains risque fort de s’effondrer. C’est sans doute ce qu’ils voient venir aussi ne se mouillent-ils pas trop. Le matériel militaire promis se fait toujours attendre, ainsi que les formateurs canadiens. Mais sans doute que les autorités américaines se soucient peu d’avoir détruit un pays, du moment qu’elles ont semé la pagaille en divisant un peu plus l’Europe, montant les Européens de Russie contre les Européens de l’Union. Et nous n’avons pas encore tout vu, ils ne s’arrêteront pas en si mauvais chemin, puisqu’ils sont en train de déstabiliser les Balkans.

This information will probably not be relayed by the official media because “they demonstrate that Ukraine of Poroshenko is torn from within.
Former Assistant Minister of Defence of Ukraine, “Major-General” (equivalent to a general of army corps in France) Aleksandr Kolomiyets, passed with arms and baggage to the side of the Novorussian resistance. Arms and baggage, or more accurately with other officers of the Ukrainian National Army.
“I am Alexander Kolomiyets, a major-general of the Ukrainian armed forces … My last position was adviser to the Ukrainian defense minister and senior defense analyst,” he said at the opening of the conference that he gave to Donetsk. He added: “I will work for the good of the People’s Republic of Donetsk. “. “Observe who is currently fighting; only voluntary National Guard. “” “Soon, there will be unrest in the army. They do not understand the orders given to them, to kill civilians. We will see that by fall, everything will change. “
Together General of the Army corps and officers around him came provide assistance to the armed forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic. The general is a leading rookie for the rebellion of Donbass, not only because he is a very senior officer knows the Kievan enemy within, but he also knows very well the military of the Donetsk region for having spent 19 years at the helm. This is also a very damaging loss for the Kiev junta.
Constant purges within the ranks of Ukrainian armies and security services, popular demonstrations against the US omnipresence, all this is beginning to weigh heavily on real Ukrainians who care about their country and their families.
The general and his friends do not go to the Novorusse side on a whim. Beforehand, they took care to put their families safe from Kievan reprisals. According to him, many of his fellow commanders seek to go over to the separatists, they would be about a hundred:
“The morale of the Ukrainian army is at its lowest, officers and generals are aware of the criminal nature of political power in place in Kiev and do not want to fight.”
Before him, the former head of customs at Lugansk, Oleg Tchermoussov, had also left his post to join the separatists. Lately Alexei and Yuri Miroshnichenko brothers attached to the Ukrainian Embassy in Paris (attached to the Foreign Intelligence of Ukraine), had joined the separatists because of their disagreement with the Kiev policy. And these are two more recruits of choice, from the heart of the enemy system, to strengthen the cause of the New Russia.
The two brothers decided to leave work in Paris and return home in Lugansk. They claim to be in total disagreement with the policies of the regime in Kiev. They joined with their own means Lugansk where they gave a press conference to explain the reasons for their actions:
“My brother and I have seen what was going on in Ukraine, the coming to power of some people. We decided to leave and who have nowhere to go we decided to come back home in Lugansk […] We have not been forced by anyone, we have made this decision voluntarily. We could reasonably continue to work for the regime that is in place in Ukraine. These are just traitors, fascists and agents in the pay of other nations, they lead the country to ruin. “.
We must be courageous in this climate of purges and reprisals in Kiev to protest against the Americans who invested the government with three key ministers:
This was done a few days ago the Ukrainians in Kiev. We hear very clearly protesters shout: “US go home! “

This does not prevent the US-oligarch Kiev regime massaging equipment and men on the front line of contact as shown by the map below, which takes stock of the positioning of troops this morning June 24, 2015. The troops of Kiev are in blue:
However soldiers are certainly not thrilled to have to face their former compatriots. They have in mind the aisles of graves of fighters that extend and multiply in cemeteries.
In recent hours, the front line has remained stable but the shelling continued on Donetsk, Gorlovka, Marinka and Shirokino particular. The intensity of the fighting northwest of Lugansk also increases.
The war in Ukraine is not yet complete, the system set up by the Americans is likely to collapse. That’s probably what they see coming as they do get wet too. The promised military equipment is still waiting, and Canadian trainers. But no doubt that the US authorities do not care about destroying a country, as long as they have wreaked havoc by dividing a little more of Europe, an amount of Europeans of Russia against Europeans of the Union. And we have not seen everything yet, they will not stop in such a bad way, because they are destabilizing the Balkans.

I inform you that DISS (Donbass International Summer School) will finally be implemented at the end of August 2015 (more info here: http://iouco.tumblr.com/)
The participation in DISS is free of charge but the DISS-Coordination Team may decide to include a fee that in any case would not exceed of 50 euros per participant (all in depence on the expenses incurred by the project). You should arrange your travel by yourself. If you are coming from USA or EU you will need a visa to Russia (a transit visa or tourist visa is enough, you can ask in any travel agency of your country). I recommend you to take a flight to Rostov-on-Don and from there a bus to Donetsk. But also is possible to flight to Moscow or Volgograd and take a train or bus to Rostov and from there a bus to Donetsk.
We are working in different alternatives to get good accommodation at affordable price for all the participants.
If you can not participate travelling to Donetsk then you still may send us a communication (a letter or video). The DISS accept communications related to globalism, anti-fascism, peace building…but we are opened to get also videos in form of lectures on interesting topics as well.
More information about DISS can be found in our facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Donbass.Summerschool

About International Observatory of Ukrainian Conflict (IOUCO)
We are an independent network of citizens concerned about the events taking place in Ukraine. The members of the International Observatory of Ukrainian Conflict (IOUCO) understand that the so-called ” Euromaidan ” is actually a coup against the Ukrainian institutions. A coup organized and funded by U.S. and some EU countries. The coup placed in Kiev an illegitimate Junta of extremists and impostors that have ruined the country and have surrendered Ukraine to the looting of Western corporations. The maidanite regime is committing atrocities against their own population. The regime do not hesitate to crush any discrepancies with the use of brutal violence and military force. The Observatory (IOUCO) is open to anyone interested in knowing what is happening in that tormented country. The group is not following any ideology or creed. We only follow our conscience as free people that want to live in a peaceful world without violence, war and imperialist impositions. A world without fascism and fear.

Acting Greens leader, Senator Scott Ludlam, made statements last week that are noteworthy not only for their content, but for the fact that they generated absolutely no controversy or debate within the Australian media and political establishment.
Ludlam was a speaker at the national conference of the recently established Independent Peace and Activist Network (IPAN), held in Brisbane on July 9. IPAN is a coalition of pseudo-left groupings and individuals that advance pacifist and nationalist opposition to the US-Australia alliance and US bases and military activity in the country. Among the issues IPAN discussed was the large-scale, joint US-Australian “Talisman Sabre” military exercise currently taking place across northern Australia.
Speaking after the event with reporters, Ludlam made off-the-cuff remarks that Talisman Sabre was training for “expeditionary wars and invasions.” Most significantly, he stated: “I don’t think we should be preparing for a war with China … I don’t think we should be participating in that kind of provocation.”
It is difficult to think of more newsworthy comments by a public political figure. The acting leader of the third largest parliamentary party, and the Greens foreign affairs spokesman, asserted that Australia, as part of its alliance with the United States, is “preparing for a war with China.”
An Australian Associated Press stringer filed a story on his remarks within hours. The online Guardian and Murdoch media’s news.com.au posted it. Ludlam then posted a link to the Guardian story on his Facebook page, with the text, “our dress rehearsal for world war three.”
And that is where any public reference to Ludlam’s remarks ended. The television news and the major newspapers did not report them. No member of Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s Liberal-National coalition government was asked about them. The Labor opposition said nothing. The Greens themselves did not issue a press release about Talisman Sabre and Ludlam has not repeated his statements since.
The explanation for the silence is that what Ludlam said is true and the Australian establishment does not want it discussed. As the WSWS explained in its July 7 article, “Japan joins US-Australian rehearsal for conflict with China,” Talisman Sabre is a “large-scale dress rehearsal for a military confrontation with China in the Asia-Pacific region.” Over 33,000 American, Australian and New Zealand troops, and a small contingent of Japanese personnel, are practising naval assaults and amphibious landings within the context of sharp tensions over the provocative US allegations that China is threatening “freedom of navigation” in the South China Sea.
Under the auspices of the US “pivot to Asia” since 2011, Australia is fully integrated into the American strategic plans for war on China. Northern and western Australian airbases and ports are regularly visited by the American military. US Marines are based in Darwin. The Australian military is treated by the Pentagon as an adjunct to its own forces, trained to operate as part of larger US units. Such is the integration that if the US goes to war in the Asia-Pacific, Australia will immediately be involved.
The scope of exercises like Talisman Sabre reflect military calculations that the US is planning for war sooner rather than later, when China could be in a stronger position to oppose an onslaught by the US and its allies like Japan and Australia.
Ludlam’s posture of concern over the war danger is belied by the record of the Greens. They have loyally assisted the former Labor and current conservative governments block any broad public debate about the preparations for a confrontation with China. In parliament, they do not raise any opposition to the US alliance or the military integration taking place as part of the pivot.
Ludlam, as the Greens foreign affairs spokesman, has played a key role in suppressing critical information about the ever-expanding US military activity in Australia. In November 2013, Ludlam asked questions in the Senate foreign affairs committee about plans for greater “rotation” through northern Australian airbases by US aircraft. He obtained an effective admission from senior military commander Air Marshal Mark Binskin that US aircraft, such as B-52 bombers, would neither confirm nor deny whether they were carrying nuclear weapons when operating from Australia.
Following the admission that Australia might be hosting nuclear-armed long-range bombers, behind-the-backs of the population, Ludlam made no attempt to make an issue of it on the floor of the Senate. Likewise, he did not use parliament to condemn Talisman Sabre as a “dress rehearsal for World War Three.”
Ludlam epitomises the cynical manner in which a section of the Greens occasionally pose as “left” and “anti-war” to select audiences, while at all times serving the interests of the Australian ruling class. No less than the rest of the official political establishment, the Greens have worked to keep the working class in the dark and prevent an anti-war movement developing that challenges the militarist agenda of US and Australian imperialism.
The Greens are assisted in their duplicity by the social types that make up organisations like IPAN. A number of the figures who are active in the network are current or former members of the Stalinist Communist Party of Australia (CPA), Socialist Alliance or the fraudulent “left” of the Australian Labor Party. Hostile to the fight by the Socialist Equality Party to develop an anti-war movement in the working class on an internationalist and socialist perspective, IPAN has been established to try and channel opposition to militarism into politically harmless protests and reactionary Australian nationalism.
The “IPAN Statement” asserts that the US alliance has “put our independence at risk” and calls for Australia to have an “independent foreign policy.” Such demagogy, which implies that Australia’s alignment with the US is simply because politicians are Washington’s lapdogs, is intended to obscure that the danger of war arises from the breakdown of global capitalism. It reflects the standpoint of a faction of the Australian corporate elite who believe that supporting the reckless US attempt to reverse its economic decline by military means will end in disaster and undermine Australian capitalism’s substantial economic ties with China, which is now the country’s largest trading partner.
The dominant factions of the Australian ruling class, however, are prepared to tie their fate to US imperialism. Both the government and Labor opposition are committed to the US “pivot to Asia” against China. This political bipartisanship flows from calculations that Australian imperialist interests—strategic influence in the South Pacific, major investments in Wall Street and the prospect of greater market share in Asia and China in particular—are best served by ensuring the US retains its dominant position in the Asia-Pacific and globally.

The leader of the Mukachevo cell of the “Right sector” Aleksandr Sachko said the battalion will continue the fight.
KIEV, July 14. /TASS/. Hiding from law enforcement officers, extremists of the “Right sector” are moving from Mukachevo to the border with Poland. This was reported by the Ukrainian TV channel “Inter”.
“The epicenter of the events is moving, actually, to the North of Mukachevo. In the village of Verkhnaya Vyznitsa there are three new checkpoints. Staffed by soldiers of the national guard and police. It is 20 kilometers from the city. That is, we can assume that the fighters of the “Right sector” are leaving the foot of the mountain, where they were hiding”, – stated the report of the channel.
It was noted that extremists “every day are moving towards Lvov” and, most likely, keep the course to the border with Poland.
The leader of the Mukachevo cell of the “Right sector” Aleksandr Sachko said the intention of the battalion to continue the fight:
“It may take a year or two … Well, then, so be it. If someone thinks that the guys can’t live in the woods as long as necessary, believe me, there are enough opportunities to increase this formation by several thousand people,” – he said.
At the same time, Slovakia and Hungary took measures to strengthen their security on the border with Ukraine.
[This is interesting timing if they are headed to Poland, since the anniversary of the Volyn massacre (July 11, 1943) by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) of Poles, Ukrainians, Armenians, Jews, and others, just took place.]
