An interview with academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences S. Y. Glaziev analyst and publicist A. Nagorny ("TOMORROW")
"TOMORROW." Sergey, recently, speaking at the "round table" on the situation in the Donbass, you called to "close the sky" on the new Russia. You thought Russia's military intervention is undesirable, since it would give the U.S. and its allies an excuse to represent our country as an aggressor and unleash a full-scale military conflict, completely severing all links between Russia and Europe. What has changed, why now relevant to you were the words of Churchill: "whoever between shame and war chooses shame, gets war and shame at the same time"?
Sergey GLAZYEV. I think the answer to this question is obvious. After the election of Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine the so-called "anti-terrorist operation in the Southeast" is not terminated — instead, it has entered a new phase with the use of heavy weapons: aviation, tanks and artillery. Victims among the population of Donbas is growing, the flow of refugees coming to Russia, no measures for the peaceful solution of the conflict is taken. This is the first.
Second. Despite the catastrophic state of the economy and the budget, the Ukrainian authorities took a course on militarization of the country. Declared a General mobilization, the full power run military industry. Kharkiv and Lviv tank factories loaded by the manufacture of new AFVs in the amount of 200 pieces and restore stocks of armored vehicles with a rate of 25 tanks per week. Odessa and the Chuguev aircraft factories engaged in the restoration and removal with preservation of the aircraft with the aircraft rate of 2-5 per week. The armed conflict in the Donbass is used as a testing ground for the creation of an efficient army, American trainers are preparing for the enslavement of Donbass and, ultimately, attack on the Crimea.
After the beginning of confrontation with April, the number of ideological militants, funded by Kolomoisky and National guard located throughout areas of the South-East is rapidly growing at an alarming rate. If before the coup a number of illegal armed groups Right Sector was about 2.5 thousand people across Ukraine, so many brutal fascists is only on the territory of Zaporizhzhya region (in Kharkiv – 6000, in Dnipropetrovsk – 4800, in the Donbass – 3500 and almost as many in the Odessa region).
The militarization of the country with the purpose of the war with Russia openly proclaimed Ukrainian leadership as the main directions of the state policy. Immediately after his election, Poroshenko has made several unequivocal statements: "We need to get used to living in constant combat readiness", "the Army and its rearmament efforts of the domestic military-industrial complex is our top priority", "Russia has occupied Crimea which was, is and will be Ukrainian. Yesterday during a meeting in Normandy, I told President Putin – Crimea is Ukrainian. And to the point. No one can be a compromise in the issues of Crimea, European choice and state structure", "But Ukraine was, is and will be unitary state. Dreams of Federation has no soil in Ukraine", "We, the people, who had been separated from their great Motherland – Europe – returned to her. Finally and irrevocably".
Third. We see total anti-Russian propaganda in Ukrainian media space, which is just inciting Ukrainians against Russia, creates "a new political nation", using the techniques of totalitarian sects in a huge, national scale. It was only in Germany under Hitler. The hatred of the citizens of Russia as "subhumans" and "nonhumans" is a kind of "passport of a true Ukrainian".
Fourth. We see the dependence of the current Ukrainian government from its U.S. owners. In fact, in Kiev today operates the puppet occupation government, which expounds on the Ukrainian language that he speaks English.
Finally, the fifth. All the resources of the country that the government throws on the solution of one task only — any way to start a conflict with Russia and to drag it through the mechanisms of the EU and NATO Europe.
