after 100 years (to the day nearly)…….

President Vladimir Putin has signed documents paving the way for the formal acceptance by Moscow of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), as well as Kherson and Zaporozhye Regions. The treaties await ratification by the Russian parliament.

According to the Kremlin, Friday’s decision followed a democratic vote, in which people living in the former regions of Ukraine exercised their right to self-determination and requested to be protected from Kiev.

The historic move was condemned and rejected by Kiev and its foreign backers, which regard it as an annexation of sovereign Ukrainian territory.

RT takes a look back at how an armed coup in Kiev eight years ago led to a change of European borders and a major armed conflict.

 

Maidan

In late 2013, a wave of street protests began in Kiev, ostensibly sparked by the government of Viktor Yanukovich shunning an economic agreement with the EU – a deal sold to Ukrainians as a harbinger of immediate social and economic benefits.

THESE RUSSIAN REGIONS WERE ADDED TO UKRAINE IN 1922 BY THE COMMUNIST REGIME OF THE USSR, WITH THE IDEA THAT THE UNION WOULD LAST FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. IT TOOK LESS THAN 75 YEARS FOR THE USSR TO COLLAPSE FOR VARIOUS REASONS INCLUDING THE NEED TO FIGHT A COLD WAR. BY 1991, UKRAINE, STILL A "COMMUNIST" COUNTRY GOT ITS WING CLIPPED CONSIDERING IT WAS THE THIRD NUCLEAR ARMED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. WITH VARIOUS SCHEMES, THE US EMPIRE HAS BEEN TRYING TO "STEAL" IT FROM RUSSIAN INFLUENCE — AND IS STILL TRYING.

WE COULD NOT OPERATE WITHOUT INFORMATION. THUS IS IT OUR DEDICATION TO SOURCE AND ANALYSE THE TRUEST POSSIBLE FORM OF INFORMATION. WE HAVE OUR "SECRET" SOURCES THAT WILL OFTEN CONFIRM OR DENY THE VERACITY OF INFORMATION. A LOT OF OUR INFORMATION HAS TO COME FROM TRUSTED OVERT SOURCES (DISLIKED BY THE EMPIRE). SOME OF THESE SOURCES WHICH WE DO NOT SUPPORT FINANCIALLY (WE DO NOT HAVE THE MEANS) BUT SUPPORT BY PROMOTING THEIR WORK, INCLUDE WIKILEAKS AND CONSORTIUM NEWS:

 

On Feb. 23, 2015, Robert Parry, the late founder of this website, warned that a U.S.-backed coup in Kiev and a war launched against the coup’s resisters in Ukraine’s east threatened the world with nuclear holocaust. It seemed an extreme position to take then. But does anyone think so today? 

Having broken the biggest Iran-Contra stories for the Associated Press, Bob also broke the biggest stories debunking Russiagate for Consortium News, explaining how the phony scandal helped raise tensions between nuclear powers, including in Ukraine. 

Robert Parry distinguished himself with his coverage of the crisis in Ukraine from its beginning until his untimely death in January 2018.  

He did not live to see his chilling forecasts being played out. Since Bob’s passing, we have endeavored to continue covering Ukraine in the same vein.  We warned 20 days in advance how the U.S. was provoking, and why it needed, Russia to intervene in Ukraine. We reported in March detailed confirmation of the U.S. strategy.

Our writers, such as Scott Ritter, Patrick Lawrence, Diana Johnstone and Joe Lauria, have throughout the crisis offered an antidote to the Official Narrative. For that we’ve had our PayPal account shut down, we’ve got the red mark from NewsGuard and Ritter and Lawrence have been permanently banned from Twitter.
