UPDATED: Malorossiya - Welcome to the Community of Nations from Canada!

UPDATED: July 20, 2017 Notice to Readers:  I have updated this post many times and feel it is very important that Readers become informed on this development [the birth of the new Nation of Malorossiya].  I have not seen this news mentioned in the Legacy Media or in any alternative blogs.  It is only in the Russian media.  So I am leaving this post up till Sunday.  Please re-read if you looked at it when it was first published.  There have been a lot of changes and the addition of a very informative video.  Thanks.  gc

Flag of Malorossiya


Let me be the first Canadian to welcome the newest nation into the world community of nations.  The former provinces of Donetsk and Lugansk have united (Lugansk not quite as enthusiastically as Donetsk) into the new nation of Malorossiya.  The announcement was made by the first president of Malorossiya, Alexander Zakharchenko .  President Zakharchenko is the last surviving of the three heros of the 2014 civil war between the Kiev Junta and the ethnic Russian provinces of Donetsk and Lugansk.  The other two, soldiers with the call names of "Motorola" and "Givi", were assassinated after the end of the war by the Western neocon proxy fascist, Nazi-sympathizing Kiev Junta.  Hopefully, President Zakharchenko is better protected by security than the other two heros...as his life is under constant threat.  Other than Putin himself, Zakharchenko is probably the leader most in danger of assassination in the world today.

But back to welcoming and celebrating the formation of the new nation.  The name Malorossiya derives from the ancient name of "Little Russia" that this part of the former Soviet Union was called centuries ago when it was first taken over by Russia after a series of wars and treaties.  Apparently, along with the nation of Belarus, the states of Russia, Belarus and Malorossiya will ultimately form a troika of pro-Russian states that can, together, ward off threats from NATO, on their mutual borders. You can read more about the history of Malorossiya in the links embedded in this post.

Here is an analysis of the reasons for the Malorossiya Declaration from The Duran:


"5 reasons the Malorossiya declaration is a modest proposal that the EU, Russia and US should support


Predictable condemnation of the declaration of the state of Malorossiya has come from EU states, the Kiev regime and even Russian officials. But on closer inspection, Malorossiya could be a win-win situation for Europe, Russia, the United States and for the people of Malorossiya. 


Alexander Zakharchenko
First President of the World's
Newest Nation - Malorossiya announces

the formation of the new State

Here's why:

1. Malorossiya to remain sovereign from the Russian Federation

For those who have been following measures that many politicians in Donbass and The Russian Federation have taken to integrate the bureaucratic, financial and logistical ties between Donbass and Russia, today’s announcement does not call for Malorossiya to become part of the Russian Federation. According to the statement released from Donetsk, Malorossiya is defined in the following way,

“Malorossiya is an INDEPENDENT, SOVEREIGN state with a new name, a new flag, a new constitution, a new state structure, new principles of social and economic development, and new historical prospects. But this is NOT A REVOLUTION! This is a return to history. This is a novelty that restores, not destroys”.

Thus, for those in Russia worried (however inappropriately) about international repercussions from the west about absorbing new territories, the Malorossiya plan, if fully implemented and accepted honestly, would put these questions to rest for the foreseeable future.

While the western powers are resolutely opposed to Russia re-uniting in a formal sense with Donbass or the broader historic territories of Malorossiya and Novorossiya and with the Russian government making no moves to advocate for a larger Russian Federation, such vexed are rendered irrelevant under the new plans from Donetsk.

2. MINSK II Without The Impossible Provisions

Many of the key elements of the MINSK II agreement that Russia, the EU and US still favour as a settlement to the war in Donbass are actually retained in the Malorossiya declaration.

a. MINSK II calls for a cessation of violence and so does the Malorossiya declaration.

b. MINSK II calls for local control and accountability throughout the present territory of Ukraine and so too would such a thing happen according to the Malorossiya declaration.

c. MINSK II calls for all languages spoken in the territories in question to be respected and so too does the Malorossiya declaration call for full legal status to both Russian and Malorossiyan (aka Ukrainian).

d. MINSK II calls for respect for self-determination in accordance with international law and of course so does the Malorossiya declaration.

The biggest stumbling bloc to the MINSK II agreements is that the current Kiev regime simply does not want to attempt to implement the protocols. There has been no ceasefire, no withdrawal of weapons, no full prison exchange and no movement on laws for local-autonomy, human rights, so-called inter-ethnic rights or language rights. Quite the opposite has happened, regime officials have called for total war and the killing of civilians continues to escalate.

The problem with MINSK II is not that it asks the impossible, the problem is that it asks the rational from a totally irrational regime. It is a problem of personalities and their ideology, not a problem of the content itself. Much of the content of MINSK II which stresses peace and local rule is not only preserved in the Malorossiya declaration but it is actually enhanced.

3. It accounts for the so-called ‘territorial integrity of Ukraine’

The Malorossiya declaration would see most areas which currently comprise Ukraine remain united or in some cases (Donetsk and Lugansk) become re-united into a single indivisible state. All that would change would be the style of government, the constitution and name of the state. It would literally be a successor state with virtually the same borders.

Even the most ardent Russophobes in the EU often hold their collective noses or look the other way when faced with the fact that the current regime in Kiev is one which promulgates fascist ideology, that which is illegal in many EU states. This the current regime is popular in many EU quarters less because of what it stands for than for what it stands against: good relations with Russia. This is a position which was always financially untenable for both Brussels and Kiev and is increasingly becoming a political headache for the EU which now has its own major crisis of integrity, namely, Brexit.

Likewise, countries have the right to change their name both in war time and in peace time. This for example is why the country still commonly referred to as The Czech Republic prefers to be called Czechia. Sticking with Czechia, this is why when Czechoslovakia spit in 1993, it was called a Velvet Divorce, both countries retain an open border, have good relations and are both part of the European Union.

Without advocating for a position of joining Russia, the Malorossiya declaration allows for the current borders of the state now called Ukraine to be essentially preserved while allowing for the possibility of regions, ostensibly those who reject the Russian heritage of the most of Ukraine, to remain as part of a separate sovereign entity.

This would most likely manifest itself with regions formerly belonging to Poland/Austria and Hungary/Czechoslovakia to remain sovereign states who pursue a different geo-political path from Malorossiya.

If this is what people want and if this is what people vote for, it is called self-determination and this is also part of the MINSK II agreements as well as more importantly, a recognised protocol of international law.

4. A Belorussian Solution (with a bit of pre-coup Ukraine thrown in)

Statements made in support of the Malorossiya declaration specifically mention the Union-State which since 1996 has existed between Russia and Belarus. Under these provisions the states have open borders, a common customs area and cooperate intensively in crucial matters of trade, economics and security.

Both states remain sovereign according to this agreement and both states are entitled to disagreements, a privilege that Belorussian President Alexander Lukashenko has frequently invoked throughout the years.

Had Ukraine’s last legitimate President Viktor Yanukovych not been overthrown, a similar agreement could have well been on the table between Ukraine and Russia. In many ways, as mutual members of the Commonwealth of Independent States, many of the aforementioned realities already existed in respect of Kiev’s pre-2014 relationship with Moscow.

For those concerned about normalcy returning to the region, this is far from a radical proposal in this respect, it is actually simply going back to the last time Ukraine was a semi-stable state prior to 2014.

5. Everything Tolerated Except Fascism

The Malorossiya declaration tolerates everything that all observers to the conflict could genuinely and reasonably expect from a post-conflict settlement including a commitment to human rights, language rights, the right to an education, the right to democratic self-determination and the right to live in a country with much needed constitutional reforms.

Surely changing a country’s name is less severe than disenfranchising a large portion of the country’s citizens? But in harassing Russian language schools and teachers, in shutting down Orthodox Churches which are part of the Moscow Patriarchate and seizing their property, by prohibiting the use of the Russian language and by shutting down Russian language television, radio and websites (including social media), the current regime is acting in a manner incompatible with normal, modern human rights requirements.

Frankly, if the proposals didn’t come from Donetsk and one read them to a middle-level EU politician, many might find such a politician saying, “It sounds like a revised Ukraine with an acknowledgement of the region’s history without the fascist elements”.

Indeed that is all it is.

As the declaration says itself,

“…this is NOT A REVOLUTION! This is a return to history. This is a novelty that restores, not destroys”.

One would be hard pressed for a more accurate description of what is being proposed. There will certainly be growing pains along the way, but better to grow in a spirit of refreshed and revitalised peace than to descend into the childish anarchy that is the current Kiev regime."

**************************

The Western Legacy Media, of course, totally ignored the announcement of the formation of Malorossiya. If THEY don't mention it...it didn't happen...right? That is their way of keeping the Western sheeple like a mushroom crop: in the dark with sh!t thrown at them. The Russian press has commented on the announcement with a few cautious analyses. Here is a snippet from one from Fort Russ. Please read the following and I will have some final thoughts in comments to follow:

"Malorossiya: Information War Ploy or Real Revolution?

July 18, 2017 - Fort Russ -
By Eduard Popov - translated by Jafe Arnold


".....Let us also recall that political emigrants #1 and #2, the ousted President Viktor Yanukovych and ex-Prime Minister Nikolay Azarov, have been increasingly politically active as of late, especially the latter. Just several days ago, Azarov stated that he expects to return to his homeland soon. It would be logical to assume that these two events are interrelated. While it is unknown whether Azarov was present at the congress in Donetsk (he probably was not), even if Azarov and Zakharchenko are in different parties, they share the same strategic goal - “restarting” the state of Ukraine on new ideological and political principles, and even with a new name.

I happen to agree with Boris Gryzlov. Today’s announcement out of Donetsk undoubtedly belongs to the information war context. The proclamation also certainly goes beyond the Minsk Agreements, but then again, so does the daily shelling of Donbass cities by Ukrainian artillery and Kiev’s attempts to overturn and distort the implementation of the agreements’ provisions.

The Donetsk People’s Republic, its leader, Alexander Zakharchenko (the only authoritative politician in Donbass), and his supporters are merely turning the tables on Ukraine. Zakharchenko is countering the bombardment of Donbass cities with not only a tough, defensive response, but with threatening to liquidate the pseudo-Nazi, pseudo-oligarchical state of Ukraine altogether, and build a new state in its place.

Indeed, a lot of combustible material has accumulated in Ukraine’s regions, and all that is left is providing a burning match. Therefore, this information war project could easily turn into a military and political reality.

Therefore, I propose that the plans to establish “Malorossiya” be taken in all seriousness."

**********************


Let's be frank here...Zakharchenko doesn't put his pants on in the morning without checking and getting permission from Putin first. He is Putin's "Man in the Donbass". This clear "war maneuver" is, IMO, yet another of Putin's brilliant checkmates.

Putin is doing an end run around the West in Ukraine. He's setting up a new country in the east (not coincidentally, the only economically viable part of the former pre-coup country). The new country will have a new constitution that will act as "bait" to Ukrainians in the west to join the east and basically liquidate the pseudo-Nazi, pseudo-oligarchical state of Ukraine altogether. The Nuland/Pyatt perps will be left with nothing in their hands...as the citizens of the western provinces gradually gravitate towards the new eastern State. Again, let's be frank here. I am sure the vast majority of the Western provinces of Ukraine, now ruled by the collapsing failed Poroshenko leadership would prefer to merge with their richer brethren in the East. The only reason, IMO, they have not risen up again in Maiden square to overthrow the Junta is the fear that the Neocon perps will send in NATO forces to "rescue" them.

This initiative gives a new lease on life to the provinces of the Donbass. It gives them a vehicle with which to grow and build a constitution around. Readers can be assured that the new nation of Malorossiya will become a "model" nation, tantalizing the Western Ukraine provinces with its state of the art social stability, infrastructure, trade deals and such...much like Hong Kong was to the rest of China. But, how can they go wrong? All that the West has ever offered to the nations that it has taken over in the past five decades or so is chaos and destruction. So the bar is set very low for Malorossiya.

Again, I wish the new nation all the best. Unfortunately, Malorossiyans will not be hearing such good wishes from Canada's neolib puppet, le dauphin Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, or his neo-Nazi supporting Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland. C'est dommage!
