So Vladimir Putin is awarding journalists for lies, disinformation and distortion of facts? Not surprising, I bet he had the award list written up before he invaded Crimea just like those commemorative coins that were made too.

Authorities Threaten to 'Liquidate' Crimean Tatar Council

Crimea's prosecutor has threatened to outlaw Crimean Tatars' main self-governing body for "extremist" activities, reading out a warning to their leader in Russian despite his repeated appeals for a translation into the official language of their autonomy.

The Sunday admonition by prosecutor Natalya Poklonskaya to Mejlis leader Refat Chubarov was seen by some as an ominous sign for the Crimean Tatars, whose former head Mustafa Dzhemilev was banned from entering the Black Sea peninsula the previous day.

In a video posted on YouTube, prosecutor Natalya Poklonskaya described the massive rallies by Crimean Tatars against the ban on Dzhemilev's entry as "illegal" gatherings marked by "violence and threats of violence,"

"I am warning Refar Abdurakhmanovich Chubarov, the chairman of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis, about the unacceptability of carrying out extremist activities, I demand an immediate secession of extremist activity," Poklonskaya said.

Chubarov attempted to cut in: "I am having much trouble catching on the meaning," he said. "Please, in Crimean Tatar, in an official language, or at least in Ukrainian."

Poklonskaya plowed on, raising her voice to drown out the protests.

If the "violations noted above are not eliminated," the "Crimean Tatar Mejlis will be liquidated" and "its activity on the territory of the Russian Federation will be banned," she said.

"You have violated my rights," Chubarov said told Crimea's prosecutor by reading out her warning "not in my native language, not in the official language."

A reader on the Ekho Moskvy website said Sunday that the "repressions" constituted "nothing new" for Russia, but that repressing the "Crimean Tatars, who have already survived the horror of the purges, may backfire for the regime — and it will."

Crimean Tatars, whose members were persecuted and exiled from their homeland under Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, have opposed Russia's annexation of Crimea, though Moscow has sought to appease any protests by promising to grant Crimean Tatars the same kind of self-governing and linguistic autonomy they enjoyed in Ukraine.

In a televised appearance last month, Putin said he had signed a decree to "rehabilitate" the Crimean Tatars and other ethnic minorities on the peninsula — "all those who suffered during Stalin's repressions."

The decree, published on the Kremlin website, also said it aimed to "restore historical justice and remove the consequences of the illegal deportation" and to "foster the creation and development of national-cultural autonomies."


Why no... they are just showers for disinfection.

What is it going to take for people to realize just how bad Putin is and what path he is leading people back down, not down but back down.

Or is it your contention that anyone not "Russian" is inferior and must go?

Please - explain the article and all the arguments people have made that Russia would not do exactly what is occurring now.
Please explain how Russia can bitch about actions against ethnic Russians, to the point of invading Ukraine, only to do the VERY action they accused Ukraine of?

Illegal gathering?

wtf

The majority of users would seem to disagree with you Xcathdra on that.

Its not a popularity contest. And when people are exposed to only limited sources to obtain information it can lead to inflated results / views towards certain issues. In this case we are seeing that.

Why not just say that Serbia are looking at possibly joining NATO and Switzerland?

This makes no sense so im not sure what you are trying to say.

The same OSCE that were working along side your beloved Ukrainian fascists.

They are not my fascists and the more you and the other people understand that the better chance we can have an actual discussion / debate instead of resorting to name calling and behaving like a child.

Secondly - feel free to post evidence all non pro Russian Ukrainians are fascist. Since you have been incapable of actually defining who you are referring to when you use fascist, I am assuming you mean all Ukrainians/all peoples who don't support separatists.

So which is it - All people are fascists, only those who don't agree with your point of view? Only when its convenient to disparage a person because you cant refute their facts? what?

An affiliation agreement with the EU the same EU deal that your beloved Unelected government of Ukraine signed just recently and also.

The very agreements I believe you and other pro Russians have consistently railed against. Something Russia also had issues with. A nation with its own issues of Russia interfering in its internal affairs.

By that year Xcathdra there wouldn't be an EU Union.

I am quite sure the Russians are very scared, of the evil fascist NATO. Its clear that your still watching CNN.

And its clear you are once again assuming something is one thing when its not. At least NATO announces its military movements and doesn't lie like Russia has been with its own military deployments.


As I stated.. Russia/Putin has failed miserably. The very fact yours/other peoples responses are nothing but dismissals with absolutely nothing to show others furthers proves that point.


wow your still playing same the card over and over again on this same issue.




Why is that?

For those whom have being following the Economic Crisis the EU wont survive by 2019 considering just how many of the EU countries are suffering without any recovery insight.

Just like on the issue of Syria you have defended the Syrian Rebels and now your defending the same Fascists that have burnt the 48 protesters in the Trade Union Building, the same fascists that have chanted death to Russia in Kiev during the Pro EU protests last year.


Of course i Seriously hope you dont support the murders of those 48 people that were burnt alive but its clear that you are defending the Kiev movement.


By the way you claimed Russia failed? are you going to claim that the rebels in Syria are gaining ground?

At the moment diplomacy and mediation is not working because Russia doesn't want that. After all they have been behind everything that has happened in Ukraine and they have been caught red-handed with their hand in the cookie jar. You cannot mediate with Russia's soldiers/militia/thugs. Putin has already admitted he has lost control of his paid soldiers/militia/thugs.

Nice little propaganda its almost as if its from CNN or Obama's White House Officials. By calming that Russia as its own soldiers/militia/thugs. While denying that the Fascists were beyond what occurred on east ukraine.





Putin has already admitted he has lost control of his paid soldiers

Really he has? i dont think so.

Gold Climbs With Wheat Amid Ukraine Crisis; Stocks Slide


Wheat jumped 2.2 percent to $7.3175 per bushel, by 9:14 a.m. in Frankfurt, the highest since May last year



Russia is the world’s fifth-biggest exporter of wheat, followed by Ukraine.


Well, this is the kind of thing that I was afraid of. One of the core components of diets world wide is wheat. With how this could effect the geopolitical landscape, and already is, we could be talking major drops in the grain supply in certain parts of the world.
