Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will ask parliament to revoke a law giving more autonomy to regions, after the separatists held elections.That is what autonomous regions generally do. Elect their own leadership.
Ukraine is sticking to a Sept. 5 cease-fire, (No it isn't) Poroshenko said, even as the government in Kiev accused insurgents of continuing to shell Ukrainian forces and Russia of amassing troops and military vehicles in insurgent-occupied Luhansk and Donetsk. The results of Nov. 2 ballots in the two regions will be annulled and the votes redone in government-condoned elections on Dec. 7, Poroshenko said.
So let's see the eastern separatist elections had a high turnout or a large turnout, depending on which altered CNN headline you want to accept?
Compared with -In Ukraine’s East, Low Voter Turnout in Election Signals Kiev’s Challenges
Only a trickle of locals showed up at the drab Soviet-era building—one the last polling stations before a new border that will demarcate the Ukrainian territory controlled by Kiev and regions held by Russia-backed separatists.The lack of enthusiasm for Ukraine’s parliamentary elections is a sign of lingering suspicion of Kiev in the country’s industrial east and indicates the difficulties the new government will likely have in cementing the loyalty of those towns it still controls there.
So Kiev will just hold new elections another trickle of voters will dribble to the polls and their vote will rule the lives of the millions of separatists? And that's a "legitimate election"?.... With little work to do at Culture House, a wooden-paneled community building with a garish red-and-yellow ceiling, Ms. Serebryanska took a break to feed a gray kitten that resides there.
The law granting more autonomy to the eastern regions was at the center of the truce agreed in Minsk, Belarus last month by Ukraine, Russia and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Ukraine and the OSCE are the only parties adhering to the agreement, and the autonomy law’s revocation won’t affect the deal, Poroshenko said.Therefore, Ukraine is breaking the truce. Clearly. Unequivocally!
“Ukraine sees the solving of this issue by exclusively peaceful means,” Poroshenko said. “Today I will propose the National Security (GDEF) and Defense Council submit to parliament a request to cancel the law on special self-government in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.”If Ukraine saw the solving of this issue in peaceful terms Poroshenko would NOT revoke the autonomy granted, that was agreed to as part of the truce agreement. I will say this again.. Poroshenko has broke the truce by bombing the separatists areas and is taking it further by revoking the autonomy laws passed and breaking the truce agreement. So, when this is spun in western media as the rebels breaching the truce agreement you all are already aware that is spin. Nonsense.
Ukraine has also created new military units to prevent further assaults on its eastern cities of Kharkiv, Mariupol and Dnipropetrovsk.And to engage in more gross human rights violations while waging more war.
Poroshenko, the man looking for peace?
Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko has ordered army reinforcements to key southern and eastern cities
Yup, looking for peace by continuing to shell, moving more troops into key southern and eastern cities and tearing up the agreement made in Minsk.
