Other former U.S. officials familiar with the substance of the whistleblower complaint said it alleges that Trump at some point came closer to conveying a proposed quid pro quo. They said the complaint described a “promise” the president made or an offer of some benefit to a foreign leader.

В любой пост, связанный с политикой или с Украиной, обязательно приходит комментатор с грозным вопросом: «Чей Крым?» Чтобы начать говорить какие-нибудь глупости и гнусности. Например: «Любой либерал ломается на крымском вопросе», «Потри русского, увидишь имперца», «Этот Митрич сломался, несите нового», «Отписываюсь» и прочую хмурь и хтонь.

Давайте я вам один раз подробно отвечу на вопрос: «Чей Крым?»


1. Сегодня Крым украинский де-юре и российский де-факто.

Ни одна нормальная страна мира не признала этот рейдерский захват. Но заправляют всем в Крыму сегодня российские власти. Будете оспаривать факты? Думаю, что нет. Их нечем оспорить.

2. Хотите ли вы в этом обвинить меня? Не уверен, что у вас это получится. Перечитайте мой пост датированный мартом 2014 года. Я всегда считал войну, которую Россия развязала против Украины, тяжелейшим преступлением и позором России. Я не являюсь выгодоприобретателем этой аннексии. Раньше Крым был моим – я мог приехать туда в любое время и мне там всегда были рады. Теперь я туда не приеду. Крым отняли у меня точно так же, как и у вас.

3. Может быть вы хотите немного исправить формулировку вопроса? «Чей должен быть Крым по-справедливости?» Простите, но я не знаю ответа на этот вопрос. Греческим? Генуэзским? Татарским? Османским? Русским? Украинским?

А Калининград чей по-справедливости? А Львов? А Вифлеем? А Силезия? А Северная Ирландия? А Австралия? А Америка?

4. Возможно ваши родители помнят, как менялась власть в Крыму. Он входил в состав РСФСР, потом УССР, потом он стал украинским, а потом российским. То есть, ситуация все время менялась. Это не замершая картинка, это поток. Нет никаких оснований считать, что нынешняя ситуация – это навсегда.

Может де-факто подмять под себя де-юре? Может. И таких случаев навалом. СССР оккупировал прибалтийские страны и Запад был вынужден принять это, признав незыблемость европейских границ. А Финляндия не предъявляет свои права на Выборг. Путин выведет войска с Донбасса и из Сирии, уберет ракеты из Калининграда, уступит еще где-нибудь и Запад, скрепя сердце, закроет глаза на Крым. Возможна такая ситуация? Возможна

Может де-юре победить де-факто? Может. Персоналистские автократии – ненадежная вещь. И после падения Путина Россия может развалиться на части точно так же, как развалился Советский Союз. И таких случаев навалом. Вспомните, как развалилась Югославия. Или как сейчас разваливаются Ливия, Сирия или Ирак. Автократы – хреновые строители государства. Они не умеют строить надолго. И Крым снова вернется в родную украинскую гавань. Возможна такая ситуация? Возможна.

Может ли быть так, что после теоретически возможного развала России, Крым захочет стать независимым? Может. Умно ли тогда Украине настраивать против себя жителей Крыма, называя их ватниками и национальными предателями? Мне кажется, что не очень. Начинайте планировать будущее хотя бы на 10-15 лет вперед.

5. Но некоторые страны могут ведь и возродиться. Хотите ли вы, чтобы патриоты России воевали за Крым с патриотами Украины столько же, сколько Франция воевала с Германией за Эльзас и Лотарингию? Думаю, что нет. Значит надо находить решение, которое устроит всех.

Помните как в книге «Парень из преисподней» Корней разговаривает с бойцовым котом Гагом:
– Дело в том, что ваша война кончилась.
– Кто победил? У кого осталось устье Тары? Это, может быть, вам все равно, у кого оно осталось, а нам не все равно!
– Никто не победил. Вернее, все победили.

Некоторые проблемы не решаются на том уровне, на котором они были созданы. Как некоторые задачи не решаются на плоскости. Надо выходить на новый уровень. Национальные государства – это такой же пережиток прошлого, каким были феодальные княжества или религиозные государства. Сегодня вести войну за территорию – эта такая же глупость, как воевать за рабынь и кобылиц. Будущее за наднациональными структурами. Такими, как улучшенный и дебюрократизированный Евросоюз. Когда из местных жителей будут избираться местные органы власти, а все налоги будет отменены после введения безусловного дохода. Единое свободное экономическое пространство Северная Америка-Европа–Россия. Собственно в этом и есть главная задача – приближать это время. И оно наступит гораздо раньше, чем вы думаете.

И тогда вопрос «Чей Крым?» будет звучать примерно так же, как вопрос «Чья планета Земля?». Ну… людей. А еще – зверей, птиц, рыб. Какой-то глупый вопрос.

А если я в чем-то и чувствую свою вину, так это в том, что преступник Путин еще отравляет и душит Россию. Но это я и пытаюсь исправить в меру своих скромных сил

Venezuela, Ukraine, Hong Kong, … : Color Revolutions and Regime Change, A Modern Scourge Spawning Economic Destabilization and Civil War Three Case Studies By Carla Stea Global Research, September 02, 2019

There are innumerable examples throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, but three of the most notorious demonstrations of Washington, and its European cohorts incubating massive human tragedy and/or civil wars can be exemplified by Washington’s cultivation, indeed creation of toxic opposition movements whose goal is the destabilization and destruction of progressive governments and egalitarian economic and social structures. Currently, one of the most venal is Washington’s latest inamorata, or inamorato, Juan Guaido, the teflon Quisling of Venezuela, whose attempt to usurp the Presidency from democratically elected Nicolas Maduro would be comic in its ineffectiveness, were it not so tragic in its destruction of the lives of Venezuelan citizens. Venezuela, which controls the world’s largest oil reserves, among other coveted resources, is currently one of the most viciously targeted victims of imperialism, (cosmetically now described as “democracy development,” the latest rhetorical politically correct name for plunder). Yet, Venezuela, contrary to mainstream media disinformation, seems to be enduring, with a loyal populace who are evidently capable of detecting and resisting economic, social, and cultural manipulation, and a military who are so far unwilling to prostitute themselves.

This is a phenomenally heroic example of human integrity, and the success of socialism. President Maduro has assembled a team of brilliant leaders to represent his government, in particular, his Foreign Minister, Jorge Arreaza, an intellectual aristocrat of the highest order, his expert Ambassador Samuel Moncada, and many others of remarkable sophistication, whose capacity to see beyond the idiocies of bourgeoise propaganda is admirable, and indeed, enviable. (There are, after all, other things in life beyond designer handbags and plastic surgery, as the young women of South Korea discovered at the arrival of Kim Yo Jong, the DPRK envoy at the Winter Olympics in Seoul, who dazzled the West by her elegant simplicity and eschewal of conspicuous consumption.)

But, as Jeffrey Sachs demonstrated, in his excellent recent essay (“Economic Sanctions as Collective Punishment”), Washington’s sanctions are designed and determined to devastate and destroy the very fabric of the lives of the Venezuelan people, while making a mockery of U.S. “concern for human rights.” And all this is being done in the name of “democracy,” which, as a result, is acquiring a putrid odor. These sanctions are a form of economic genocide.

Yesterday’s New York Times reports Elliot Abrams offering President Maduro amnesty if he resigns office, which is in staggering contrast to recent threats by U.S. Senator Marco Rubio that Maduro will suffer the same fate as Libya’s Khadafi, who was sodomized with a bayonet among other tortures prior to his murder by the opposition. President Maduro might understandably conclude that the inmates have taken over the asylum.

Ukraine

In his famous book, “The Grand Chessboard,” the late Zbigniew Brezezinski, (the architect of the US policy of training, funding and arming of the savage Islamic jihadists to overthrow the socialist government of Najibullah in Afghanistan,) stressed, at length, the necessity of severing all relations between Russia and Ukraine, to completely isolate Russia from Europe, and force it to become an Eurasian state. Brzezinski’s policies were carried out during the Obama Administration, and this was implemented by State Department officials, led by Victoria Nuland.


If the history of US efforts to destabilize and overthrow the democratically elected presidency of Victor Yanukovich in Ukraine is written, one of the central figures is the US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria (“Fuck the EU”) Nuland. And in all likelihood, she will be remembered for that famous expletive, which reveals her (and her cohorts) attitude toward illegal intervention in the sovereign affairs of another country. The BBC published the leaked transcript of the Nuland-Pyatt phone call, which reveals the scandalous details of Nuland and Pyatt’s masterminding the overthrow of a democratically elected government, which they replaced with a neo-nazi regime more to their liking, and which has resulted in a virtual civil war in Ukraine, glorification of Ukranian Nazis such as Stefan Bandera, and ethnocide of the Russian-speaking Ukranians which bears striking similarity to the early stages of Hitler’s extermination of the Jews, which began with destroying their cultural identity.

Nuland:

“I think Yats is the guy who’s got the economic experience, the governing experience. He’s the…what he needs is Klitsch and Tyahnybok on the outside…..I just think Klitsch going in…he’s going to be at that level working for Yatseniuk, it’s just not going to work.”

Pyatt:

“….I think you reaching out directly to Klischko helps with the personality management among the three and it gives you also a chance to move fast on all this stuff and put us behind it before they all sit down and he explains why he doesn’t like it.”

Nuland:

“….when I talked to Jeff Feltman (UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs) this morning, he had a new name for the UN guy Robert Serry did I write you that this morning? OK. He’s now gotten both Serry and (UN Secretary-General) Ban Ki-moon to agree that Serry could come in Monday or Tuesday. So that would be great, I think, to help glue this thing and to have the UN help glue it and, you know, Fuck the EU.”

BBC diplomatic correspondent Jonathan Marcus notes:

“An intriguing insight into the foreign policy process with work going on at a number of levels: Various officials attempting to marshal the Ukranian opposition, efforts to get the UN to play an active role in bolstering a deal; and the big guns waiting in the wings – US Vice-President Biden clearly being lined up to give private words of encouragement at the appropriate moment.”

Every year at the United Nations, the Russian Federation submits a resolution prohibiting the glorification of Nazism. Every year the Resolution is adopted by a majority vote, and the Resolution has consistently been opposed by only one country: the U.S. In recent years Ukraine has joined with the U.S. in opposition to the anti-nazi resolution.

Today, conditions in Ukraine are appalling, and the horrific event in Odessa, recently, where workers were trapped in a building deliberately set on fire, and were burned to death, while neo-nazis circled the building chanting neo-nazi slogans is only one among innumerable such events, in a country which had previously known peace and stability.

Perhaps, the most moving and accurate description of the destruction of the democratically elected Presidency of Victor Yanukovich was delivered in a speech by Russia’s late Ambassador Vitali Churkin on March 27, 2014 at the UN General Assembly, and it bears quoting in large part here:

Ambassador Churkin:

“The crisis was to a large extent provoked by the adventurous actions of the current political forces, which sought to break the centuries-old ties of Russia and Ukraine, by giving Kiev a false choice between either the European Union and the West or Russia. That policy was carried out with unprecedented bluntness. They could either sign a Ukraine-European Union association agreement, as demanded of the Ukranian Government, or they could face sanctions. Within the ranks of anti-Government demonstrators were representatives of the European Union and the United States, who openly marched alongside them and called on them to openly carry out anti-Government actions.”

“The central square of the city –Maidan Nezalezhnosti—was turned into a militarized camp. Well-trained and equipped units of militants carried out violent attacks against law enforcement bodies and seized administrative buildings. In one of those buildings, the trade unions building, the so-called common diversion of the Maidan was organized. On the seventh floor of that building was a permanent staff member of the United States Embassy. By the way, it is from that building that snipers were shooting at police and demonstrators; that action was clearly aimed at provoking a violent overthrow of the government. At some point, it appeared that it would be possible to stop before the situation became worse….However, someone thought that such a scenario was not sufficiently radical. The violence continued. Under the threat of death, President Yanukovich had to leave Kiev and then Ukraine. The legitimate Government stopped operating in Kiev. Violence became the rule of politics. In the Verkhovna Rada, the parties that supported the Yanukovich majority became victims of that violence. As a result, the Rada was reshuffled, and instead of a Government of national unity, a so-called Government of victors emerged. The shots were called by those who conducted an armed coup, national radicals who –according to the definition of the European Parliament—preached racist, anti-semitic and xenophobic views and seemed to hate everything that was Russian and did not conceal that they considered the Ukranian allies of Nazis as their ideological ancestors.”

Violence and hatreds fester today in Ukraine, xenophobia, Russophobia, neo-nazism are the “new normal” in this “democracy?”

Hong Kong

Several years ago, Syrian Ambassador Bashar Ja’afari told me, personally, that each year recently Saudi Arabia invites at least 5,000 moslem Uighurs from the northwest of China to the pilgrimage in Mecca. The Saudis pay all their expenses, and extend their stay there for one month after all other pilgrims have left. The Saudis train the Uighurs in religious extremism and jihad, and then return these newly minted jihadist to their homes in Xingjiang, China, where they have been primed to destabilize the region, and promote jihad, … [more]
