Panic in Kyiv: A scientific journal of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NANU) has published a “separatist” article about the genocide of the residents of Donbass by the VSU.
So, at least, say a number of pro-regime Ukrainian media, starting with Oksana Onishchenko in the “Weekly Mirror” in her column from the department of education, science, medicine and the environment.
Onishchenko, on her Facebook page, denounced the terrible “crime” committed by a candidate of jurisprudence A. Lopata, who dared to openly publish, in the magazine of the National Academy of Sciences, a “separatist” and propagandist article, which calls into question the essence of “The Revolution of Dignity,” according to Onishchenko and the Ukrainian press, which has been blossoming with typical and predictable headlines.
In fact, the other day a scientific academic journal of NANU, “Sociology: theory, methods, marketing,” published an article by master of laws A. Lopata: “Lugansk: the hot summer of 2014,” in which the author dares to “wrongly” interpret the triumph of the “The Revolution of Dignity” and accuses the APU of the genocide of the people of Donbass.
According to the scientist, this revolution was nothing more than a coup.
“Huge amounts of money were spread around in it, and not just those Nuland cookies … Its main participants were outcasts from across the country, who, in fact, had nothing to lose. The outcasts very much wanted to take the property not just from “Donetskis”, but also from “Kievskis”, “Lvivskis”, “Rivnenskis” and others,” wrote, in particular, the author of the scientific publication.
In addition, Lopata qualified the war in the Donbass as the genocide of the people in the east of the country by the army of Ukraine. “Today, the population of Donbass en masse is being systematically, and brutally destroyed by the Armed Forces and the National Guard of Ukraine, including through means and methods of warfare that are prohibited by international law,” – wrote A. Lopata.
The author also points out that “the authorities of the country have made a decision to urgently direct the entire Maidan “fuel” material to Eastern Ukraine;” and that “there is no aggression of Russia against Ukraine, but instead there is a US war with Russia in Donbass “to the last Ukrainian.”
The horror that seized the properly patriotic (svidomized) media yesterday was shared today by Ukraine’s Ministry of Education. Its Certifying Authority immediately instructed the NANU publication board to investigate the journal “Sociology: theory, methods, marketing” for compliance with the criteria that apply to the specialized scientific journals.
