New Russian White Book on Kiev Junta Crimes in Donbass

New Russian White Book on Kiev Junta Crimes in Donbass

by Stephen Lendman

Two Russian White Books on Ukraine last year revealed serious regime  criminality. The first issued documented:

(1) Horrendous violations of human rights.

(2) Interference by America and EU countries in what’s happening in Ukraine, harming its people nationwide.

(3) Weapons and violent methods used by Maidan protesters.

(4) Restrictions on basic freedoms and crackdown on dissidents.

(5) Discrimination based on ethnic background.

(6) Religious persecution.

According to Moscow's press service, content was "based on reports in the Russian and Western media, as well as statements by representatives of the current Kiev authorities and their supporters, eyewitness testimon(ies), observations and on-site interviews collected by Russian nongovernmental organizations."

A second White Book covered the period April through July 2014. It explained worsening conditions “in all areas” - including illegitimate fascist rule, brazen pressure and threats, severe repression, state-sponsored violence, and suppression of press freedom.

It explained how independent journalists and anyone opposing state authority are harassed, beaten, terrorized or murdered - no-holds-barred brutality the way all fascist regimes operate.

A new White Book focuses on regime crimes in Donbass since Kiev launched naked aggression in April 2014.

Russia’s Investigation Committee (IC) head Aleksandr Bastrhkin said the report’s aim is to inform international community officials and global human rights groups the truth about the “terrible fratricidal war started by the nationalist regime of Ukraine.”

The IC examined 54 criminal cases. Information collected filled 2,500 volumes. Testimonies from  over 100,000 witnesses were gathered - including firsthand accounts with photos of chemical and other banned weapons use, war crimes by any standard.

IC spokesman Vladimir Markin called the new White Book “unique because it is based on evidence, which the Investigation Committee collected when investigating crimes linked to the use of prohibited means and methods of warfare.”

“The materials collected in the book give an objective analysis of the situation in south-eastern Ukraine in terms of observance of human rights and the rule of law.”

Investigations of suspected junta crimes continue - aiming for accountability in all cases. Russia’s Foreign Ministry Special Human Rights Representative Konstantin Dolgov said international organizations confirmed Kiev human rights abuses explained in Russia’s White Books. He urged pressure on world leaders to hold culpable Kiev officials accountable.

Earlier White Book information was sent to UN and OSCE officials. Nothing was done to enforce accountability. Expect none now or ahead.

US-led Western countries support Kiev’s worst crimes, including continuing naked aggression against its own people on the phony pretext of fighting terrorism - along with falsely blaming Russia for what’s ongoing.

US ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt is paid to lie for his country, as well as support illegitimate Kiev junta authorities.

Days earlier on what Washington’s Kiev embassy called (junta controlled) “Donbas Public TV,” he said America “support(s) Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in every way possible to prevail in this war of aggression that they are engaged in with Russia.”

Whenever US officials, other Western or Ukrainian ones are asked to provide evidence of alleged “Russian aggression,” nothing whatever is offered to support baseless claims - Big Lies irresponsibly blaming Moscow for US/Kiev high crimes.

Pyatt said nothing about Washington supplying Kiev with heavy weapons despite hard evidence otherwise. Throughout months of conflict, it’s been directly involved in training Ukrainian forces and orchestrating their activities.

Pyatt disingenuously paid lip service to suffering Donbass residents, including continued casualties from Kiev forces shelling residential areas - along with its economic blockade inflicting more hardships.

He praised Kiev’s 2014 sham parliamentary and presidential elections - absurdly claiming they “met the highest international standards.” They had no legitimacy whatever.

He lied calling planned Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics’ democratic elections illegal. He baselessly accused its leaders of operating under “the direction of the Russian government.”

Asked what he hopes for the people of Donbass, he turned truth on its head saying “(f)irst and foremost peace.” He outrageously accused Russia of “inflict(ing)” a “nightmare” on Donbass residents since early 2014.

Moscow is the continent’s leading peacemaker - a staunch advocate of wanting Ukraine’s conflict resolved diplomatically.

Washington wants endless aggressive wars. It bears full responsibility for orchestrating, supporting and continuing conflict conditions in Donbass with no mercy. No end in sight looms.
