Ukrainians feel the war coming

Correspondents in Eastern Ukraine say that local people in Eastern Ukraine think that war is coming. They do not want war but they also think the Russia will not stop. 

According to the correspondent, very little people in Eastern Ukraine want to join Russia. The ones who show up in meetings are mostly the provocateurs imported from Russia.

Also ukrainians think, war would be the only possibility to get Crimea back.

Also the Western sanctions is a disappointment.

They say they kind of understand the measures of Europe, but they say that the only thing Russia understands is raw force. Which is true according to the history and the situation here.

Interesting thoughts from Mikhail Schichkin

This russian man said, that what Ukrainians did during Maidan is a bravery and admirable decisiveness. Ukrainians had courage to say “No!” to a group of bandits exploiting people.

And inside Russians are jealous because of that and the government is very much afraid. 

And these brotherhood nations who share very similar sufferings and history are now thorn apart and agains each other by Putin.

But in Russia these people, just normal people are beeng shown and accused as fascists, radicals and bandits. People in Russia believe (and they really do) that maidan people were constantly on drugs. Family members from Russia call to Ukraine and ask if people in Ukraine have food and shelter. And if Russians are surpressed and abused.

Why is this huge propagandistic net of lies necessary? Probably Putin might have a bigger plan in mind. Why to provoke the whole nation to anger?

 

Russian troops ready to invade Ukraine near Ukraine border

What would that mean?

Moving massive troops is not an easy and cheap process.

Putin would not do it just for fun or even to just scare Europe and Ukraine.

I think everything is ready for an attack. The next step is arranging strong enough provocations in Ukraine. Killing a few pro-russians, bombing their centre or something like that. Russia would be most happy, if a bigger conflict would start.

In the circumstances described previously, Russia and Putin would not care about the promise to mr. Hagel that Russia will not invade.

Russia can use what ever cheap lies or tricks to fake whatever it takes to find a reason.

The Russian soldiers without insignia was one cheap trick, and a very transparent one. The “tourists” who are big, strong men crossing the borders in groups and going to Ukraine, are provocateurs, as the local people report.

When will West finally start understanding, that Russia never deep inside accepted any treaties or is trustworthy.

Wake up before it is too late, if it isn’t already

De-humanisation

When to look at history and its events, then before massacres or big tragedies, de-humanisation has aslways taken place.

De-humanisation is a process where a group of people has been labelled as something. So instead of individual persons they are being seen as belonging to a group under one label.

Now Putin is calling the Ukrainian government as “fascists”, “ultranationalists”, “extremists”. This has been done to “Jews” in Hitlers Germany. Die Juden. It was not important who were you as a personality. It was just that you were a jew and that was a reason for killing.

Now the result of Putins propaganda is heavy demoralisation of Russian people. They get a label in their minds, whom to hate even without seeing a person.

That kind of action is a strong sign of danger.

A common mistake in the way of thinking

People tend to think that others think the same way as them.

For example Russia and Putin have always seen the actions of West as agression and an attempt to conquer. Why? Because that is the way of thinking of mr. Putin.

Europe has always been soft friendly, and tries to solve things with politeness. And so has Europe been thinking of Russia for two decades now.

But the imperialistic approach and dream in Russia and its agressive state organs were never buried.

Hitler was a real person, Mao in China was a real person, the leaders of North Korea are real people. Why does anybody think that the Russian president can not be likewise?

Eastern Europe has been ringing the alarm bells for years. But western forces have been very sleepy. The attitude has been: “That just can’t be in todays world. Do not be silly.”

But now might be too late. The Russian government beast has grown the military very much. What do you think where have the gas/oil billions gone? Not to education, not to investments to build up a democratic country. The opposite. The trillions have gone into military production.

Every people thinks differently. Do not expect that others think the same way as you.
