DONETSK, October 8. /TASS/. The Communist Party has been created in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic.

Its founding congress was held in the republic on Wednesday.

Chairman of the DPR Supreme Council Boris Litvinov was proclaimed leader of the party.

He said the Communists would support DPR Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko’s candidature at the upcoming elections for premiership.

This is the first party in the history of the self-proclaimed republic. Other political organizations were set up in the form of public movement.

The DPR became a legal successor of the Donetsk-Krivoy-Rog Republic
on: February 05, 2015

The Parliament of the DPR adopted a memorandum in this regard today.
“We confirm historical connection of state formations the Donetsk-Krivoy-Rog Republic and the Donetsk Peoples’ Republic.
The Donetsk-Krivoy-Rog Republic (DKR) was established on February 12, 1918 at the IV Congress of the Soviets of the Donetsk-Krivoy-Rog Basin on the basis of the concept of economic integration. The founding father of the multinational people’s state was Fedor Sergeyev (Artem). Territories of the former Kharkov and Yekaterinoslav Governorates, the Krivoy Rog Region of the Kherson Governorate, several counties of Tauric Governotrate and the industrial regions of the Don Cossack Host constituted the Republic.
The Donetsk-Krivoy-Rog Republic did not cease to exist officially in spite of German occupation, hostilities and social catastrophes. Its ideas were alive in the hearts and souls of millions of people”.

Of course, such designations are always partly symbolic, and this on its own doesn't automatically determine the character of the DPR. But it's encouraging if they're really explicitly aligning themselves with the greatest revolutionary traditions in their territory.

Now, isn't that a mature sentiment. So, for you its just essentially "that mofo neededz to die gg!". And here I was hoping that the current events section posting wouldn't have declined during my long absence in military to one-line posting of "that mofo needed to die".

It's hard to tell who did that. Not Putin of course, who had no interest in this death, at least not like that.

My best guess is that these were some fools from the anti-maidan crowd; second best guess is a Ukrainian/opposition provocation. Least likely would be some personal business from Yaroslavl, or Putin.

Don't forget about the Charlie Hebdo connection. Nemtsov had been getting death threats after he said that Prophet Muhammad cartoons should be drawn in Russia. If he started getting death threats from Antimaidan/Russian nationalists, that would probably be all he would talk about, Putin trying to kill him by... Uh... I dunno, can't be media attention because Navalny gets all of that, and there's at least 30-40 demschizoids who make louder statements about Novorossia than him. I guess a few hours before his death he made a Facebook status that said "a bloody maidan can be avoided [if all my demands are met]," but by that point it was kind of too late to plan an assassination because you're angry about something a guy wrote on Facebook.

There's only one thing I don't understand: why did Nemtsov and his girlfriend decide to walk home instead of having the driver take them, because whoever planned the assassination relied on that minor detail. I guess Duritskaya could have been like "Oh Boris it's so romantic out, lets take a walk!" And he was like "Anything you want, Bounty." But I made that mistake earlier on Friday night when I decided to walk to Tretyakovka metro from a thing by crossing Patriarshiy Bridge, which is on the same section of river, and it was fragging miserable out with the wind and rain whipping my face. Also, Duritskaya's claiming amnesia and flying to Kiev to 'calm her mother' was oh-so-convenient.

There's also the angle of the street-cleaning car, but it probably just made the murder more convenient, because timing the street cleaner (the driver has no connection to the case) with Nemtsov's route and his relative position to the Kremlin and St. Basil's Cathedral seems like an enormous pain in the ass, but who knows.

According to traffic cameras, the car the assassin got into was a silver 2002 VAZ-21102 with Ossetian license plates that expired in 2011 (if you're willing to take LifeNews' word for it). So maybe this is still a case of Kavkaz sila, Nemtsov mogila!

From what I understand, they had their driver waiting for them though, which is kind of a dick move unless you decide to walk home last-moment.

Also, the white priora belonged to some random guy, from what I understand, some over-vigilant citizen panicked because he saw a white Lada sedan with 06 region license plates and called the cops. According to a source LifeNews is claiming to have in the police, traffic cameras spotted a silver desyatka with 15 region license plates.

It seems the Yanukovych family has suffered a tragedy. His youngest son has died in an accident.


The Moscow Times wrote:
A son of ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych drowned after a minivan he was driving plunged through the ice of Siberia's Lake Baikal, an aide to Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said.

Authorities in Russia, where Yanukovych has lived with most of his family since his ouster, did not immediately confirm the death.

But Avakov aide Anton Herashchenko said Sunday on Facebook that Yanukovych's younger son, also named Viktor, had died on Sunday in Lake Baikal.

The vehicle broke through the ice and tipped over onto the driver's side. Five passengers survived and "four of them didn't even get their feet wet," Herashchenko said.

Yanukovych Jr., 33, a racing car enthusiast who headed the Ukrainian Automobile Association when his father was in power, was not able to unbuckle his seat belt in time to get out, Herashchenko added.

Nestor Shufrych, a Ukrainian parliament deputy from the Opposition Bloc and a former ally of Yanukovych, gave a similar account on Facebook.

"He died the way he lived: behind the wheel of a car," Shufrych wrote.

Yanukovych Jr. had also been a deputy in the Ukrainian parliament as a member of the Party of Regions in which his father also served. The party released a statement on Monday expressing condolences to the deceased’s parents, his wife Olga and son Ilya.

In Moscow the Kremlin declined to comment. "I do not have any information on the subject," said President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov. "I can neither deny nor confirm."

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said Monday that its Russian counterpart had yet to notify it about the death, the Interfax news agency reported.

Russian officials on Saturday provided an account of a drowning incident at Lake Baikal that did not match that of Ukrainian officials.

The regional branch of the Interior Ministry said in a statement Saturday that a vehicle with six passengers had fallen into the lake on Friday night. One of the vehicle's occupants died, but five survived, it said.

According to an undisclosed source in the Emergency Situations Ministry who was cited by Interfax, the victim was a local resident named Viktor Davydov.

Another undisclosed source cited by the RBC news agency claimed that Yanukovych Jr. had been living in the area under the last name "Davydov," his grandmother's maiden name.

Yanukovych Jr. was among the individuals sanctioned by the European Union over the crisis in Ukraine.

Sensationalist Russian television network LifeNews, which has good contacts among Russia's law enforcement authorities, quoted sources as saying the deceased's body was being flown by charter flight to the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea for burial.

Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine last March. The Yanukovych family is known to have owned several properties in the region.

The deceased's father was ousted from the Ukrainian presidency in February 2014 after months of street protests sparked by his reluctance to sign an association agreement with the European Union.


Son of former Ukraine president Viktor Yanukovych 'drowned in lake'


That piece of morbid information aside, I have been laughing my ass off for the past few days watching Ukrainian billionaire oligarchs vie for power in Kiev; with the main attraction seeming to be a fight between President Poroshenko and the Ukrainian-Israeli governor of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Ihor Kolomoysky, who seems to be losing majority interest over a few joint-stock companies due to a number of new laws being passed in parliament.

I've watched this interview more than ten times already. It's one of the funniest outbursts I've ever seen out of a government official. It took place right after he allegedly raids one of the companies in question in order to maintain control by using his private army which he has been funding to fight in the Donbass. In it he calls a journalist from Radio Liberty Tyahnybok's whore who's got his tongue up his ass for asking the wrong questions, as well as calling some members of the Ukrainian parliament faggots and jerk-offs, as well as the usual "Russian spies are everywhere" rhetoric.

Opposition journalist Oles Buzina was killed in broad daylight outside his apartment building in Kiev today. I didn't agree with a good deal of stuff he said, but he was a decent guy.


Last night, former Rada deputy Oleg Kalashnikov was killed outside of his apartment. The night before that, journalist Sergei Sukhobok was killed.

It's also really scary how Western media tries to whitewash the crimes by calling them "pro-Russian" (they aren't) or in the case of Reuters, "pro-Russian lobbyists" in headlines. The articles are even worse, with the only point of view really being given weight is "Putin killed them for propaganda."

What has the world come to.

I honestly don't know much about Oles Buzina's politics. I saw him once in real life at a dinner party; he dressed funny. Even then a friend was telling me that his work was controversial and that he wasn't ever afraid to speak his mind. He used to criticise Yanukovych and his oligarchs in his articles. It's only now I'm starting to watch some of his interviews and read some of his works where he talks about the Ukrainian question and he indeed seems to be a decent guy, not to mention quite knowledgable on Slavic history. I can't imagine yet what threat he could have posed and to whom to merit such an ending. Kiev's a gangster run city now.

The website, called “Mirotvorec” – “Peacekeeper” in Ukrainian – has published information about journalists, activists, MPs and others opposed to Kiev’s policies. The dossiers include addresses, links to social media accounts, a biography, and any mentions of the person in the media.

The site also attaches labels to those it writes about, such as “terrorist” and “supporter of federalization,” among other tags.
