Zelensky Begs Neo-Nazi Militias To Observe UNSC Minsk Peace Accords

https://twitter.com/MarkSleboda1/status/1188092616447090688

"...Zelensky's visit to far right in Donbas shows that neo-Nazis not only have power to block Minsk Agreement toward peace, but that president [Zelensky] has no power and will to disband and arrest them and has to plead with them. It is another manifestation of actual power of far right in Ukraine."

Igor Kolomoisky Makes A Mistake And The New York Times Does What It Always Does

"...Kolomoisky may be the biggest Ukrainian bank robber the FBI has ever pursued, or he may not be. But until a few weeks ago, when he began to threaten the US Government's strategy of 'war against Russia to the last Ukrainian', and an alliance between Kiev and Moscow to deploy tanks in shooting range of the Polish cities of Cracow and Warsaw he was a US asset. Now the newspaper in New York has arranged for Kolomoisky to place himself in the Bulls-eye as America's Public Enemy Number One."

Finian Cunningham: US Impeachment Furor Sabotages Ukraine Peace Talks

https://on.rt.com/a5yo

"Weeks of impeachment hearings in the House of Representatives, accusing President Trump of abusing his office with regard to Ukraine, have achieved very little except for two things. Ukraine's international image has been trashed with corruption claims and depiction of the country as having vassal-like dependecy on the US, and secondly, demonization of Russia which has been heightened as an 'aggressor' supposedly out to destroy Ukraine.

The irony is that Washington purports to be an ally of Ukraine to promote democracy, sovereignty and independence of the former Soviet republic. But the upshot of the impeachment inquiry is that Ukraine's independence and sovereignty is gravely undermined. When President Zelensky holds multilateral talks soon with Putin, the Ukrainian leader will have little room to maneuver as a result of the cacaphony back in the US.

The two leaders are due to meet on December 9 in Paris as part of a four-way summit also involving German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron. The meeting is a return to long-suspended peace talks and an attempt to revive the 2015 Minsk accords for ending conflict in eastern Ukraine. Zelensky was elected by a landslide vote in April, primarily on the ticket that he would seek a peace settlement..."

Although Zelensky and most Ukrainians desire an end to this 'frozen conflict', NATO, the US deep state, Canada and the ultranationalist diaspora lobby, wish 'fighting Russia to the last Ukrainian' to continue and to tie the hands of those trying to negotiate peace.

And you posit that this would somehow be better if Trump were not being impeached? Do you imagine that he would be the honest partner Ukraine needs to negotiate peace with Russia?

NDPP

I posit manufacturing consent for intelligence agencies and deep state to effectively prevent the executive branch from exercising international diplomacy in the public interest is not a good thing. That is what is now happening. The precedent being established is an extremely dangerous one for international affairs. Despite the xenophobic anti-Russian 'Trump is Putin's robot' conspiracy mania you seem to support and subscribe to.

Michael Moriarity Michael Moriarity's picture

To quote Gordon Sondland, who donated $1M to Trump's inaugural and was given an ambassadorial post as a reward: "He doesn't give a shit about Ukraine." You seem to live in a fantasy world where Trump is a statesman rather than a con man.

I think no such thing. I spoke of a dangerous precedent being set. More here.

Please talk about this:

Another critical developing story here is that Ukraine is offering $8000 to every person on the downed flight in Iran. Let that soak in.

I am sure that this money will come with a requirement to agree not to sue Ukraine or the airline. If this comes before any public discussion (still not happening) about the departure then these families could sign away their right to sue the only entity that they could ever sue. You cannot sue Iran in Canada and you won't be able to sue the US either. 

If anyone knows a good journalist who can address this story of the terms and risks of Iranian families signing any kind of document to get this tiny amount of money this story is urgent now.

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

I am highlighting this post as I think someone here might be able to make a real difference.

I concur as to the possibly dodgy and dangerous implications of signing or accepting any funds on offer from Ukrainian agents. I'm sure any Canadian lawyer associated with the Iranians concerned will or should already have stressed this point. 

As I understand it, any claims for damages will have to wait until the ICAO process is completed and registered. It is also my understanding that because of US and Canadian sanctions against Iran, no transactions with any Iran state entity are permissable,  so no payment or compensation from them until or unless these are lifted. In truth, as stated elsewhere all manner of things become difficult or impossible until diplomatic relations with Iran, severed under Stephen Harper,  are restored. 

Ukraine may be a different case and it could be that the Ukrainian side can apply for insurance payouts sooner and then sue Iran. Airline base compensation rates can probably be found by searching ICAO or Chicago Convention on the net but they are certainly far greater than the piddling sums reportedly offered by Ukrainians.  And again, I'm sure the Iranians and their lawyers are probably already on this and up to speed or can find legal experts who are ready, able and willing to advise.

Ultimately I'm sure they will receive the settlements they deserve, especially given the manifest malevolence for the Iranian regime by the Canadian state and its 'independent and impartial' justice system. But should they attempt to recover damages through Iran's stolen Canadian assets they may find they've already been given away -  to the Americans...

Court Decision Allows 9/11 Families to Go After Iran's Alberta Assets

https://edmontonjournal.com/national/local-news/court-decision-allows-91...

"Families of people killed in the 9/11/ terrorist attacks will be able to go after Iranian government assets in Alberta after a multi-billion dollar judgment was registered in this province. According to court records, an Alberta court of Queen's Bench master registered a US $7.01 billion judgment against a dozen of its agencies and state-owned companies on March 13 [2019] in Edmonton.

With the decision, Alberta becomes the latest Canadian jurisdiction to recognize the massive judgment originally handed down in a New York court in 2012. Millions of dollars have already been recovered for another group of plaintiffs after a similar case was registered in Ontario."

An outlandish and shameful decision given that unlike America's Saudi friends, Iran not only had nothing to do with 911, but has been the foremost enemy and fighter of Al Qaeda and the alphabet soup of western-backed armed and trained jihadi proxies. This probably should have been posted to the main thread of Flight 752, where discussion on it can/should also continue.

"As Holocaust survivors gather to commemorate the 75th anniversary of their rescue from the Auschwitz death camp, [by the Red Army] a wave of glorification of Nazi collaborators and some of the perpetrators of the Holocaust is gaining momentum. 'In early January, torch light parades were held in a number of cities in Ukraine to honour Stepan Bandera, a Ukrainian nationalist and Nazi collaborator whose organization was involved in the killing of Jews and Poles. Ukraine's sponsoring of events to honour such leaders and their nationalist Nazi collaborators linked to the Holocaust prompted official protests from the Israeli and Polish governments. The veneration of such individuals has gathered momentum in the last decade..."

'Pinning Down Putin', Biden, the Democrats and the Next War

https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/07/09/pinning-down-putin-biden-the-dem...

"The latest Foreign Affairs features a piece by former Under-Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, 'Pinning Down Putin: How a Confident America Should Deal With Russia.' A protoge of former secretaries of state Madeleine Albright and Hillary Clinton, she is a notorious 'liberal interventionist' married to [Zionist] neocon pundit Robert Kagan. She is perhaps best known for aiding the neofascist putsch in Ukraine in February 2014 that produced regime change, a revolt in Ukraine's east, the Russian seizure of Crimea, and Hunter Biden getting offered a seat on the board of Ukraine's largest gas company making $50,000 a month for three years.

'Whoever wins the US presidential election this coming fall,' she writes in Foreign Affairs, 'will and should - try again with Putin. The first order of business, however, must be to mount a more unified and robust defense of US and allied security interests wherever Moscow challenges them.' Where has Russia challenged US security interests? Why, in Ukraine of course..."

Just as Canadian 'progressives' cheered on US-backed neonazis in Maidan 'against  Russian oppression', so now they cheer on US-backed proxies in Hong Kong 'against China's oppression.' When Biden is elected president there will be much more.

Canada will of course be front and center in the coming unthawing of Ukraine's 'frozen conflict'. Under President Biden probably. Will Canadian leftoids cheer on Ukro-fascists like last time? Will mps again chant 'Slava Ukraini!' as the troops go off to war? Will the deputy pm teach them again how to say it just right? 'Canada onto the world stage', 'feminist foreign policy' etc.

"[The] Maidan massacre is one of the most important cases of political violence and fake news in Ukraine and the entire world in the current millenium. It led to the Ukrainian government overthrow, civil war in Donbas, Crimea annexation, Russian military intervention and conflict between the West and Russia. But Ukrainian and Western governments and media, with some notable exceptions, denied, ignored or covered up the overwhelming evidence that Maidan snipers and elements of the Maidan leadership, including the far right, massacred both the protesters and the police..."
