Maidan Community Sector, Lviv: Dear friends!

By annexing Crimea, Russia has carried out an act of aggression against Ukraine. Currently Russia is transferring terrorist and sabotage groups to Eastern Ukraine. Russia aims to prevent legitimate presidential elections from happening. Everyday life in Eastern Ukraine has turned into a continuous nightmare in the middle of Europe. Our country is being destroyed right before our eyes. We therefore take the courage to inform you about current events in Ukraine. This is just another point of view. We will do our best to remain objective.

July 11 – Ukrainian military did not destroy a terrorist motorcade leaving Sloviansk on July 5th because they were informed that terrorists were hiding behind civilians, said National Security and Defense Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko.

July 11 – In Sievierodonetsk insurgents are setting up mortars on the roofs of residential buildings, says local councilor Sergiy Samarskyi.

July 11 – 4 armored combat vehicles, 3 tanks, and 3 "Grad" multiple rocket launcher systems belonging to Russian terrorists were seized by ATO forces, when Sloviansk, Kramatorsk, Artemivsk and other towns were being liberated, informs Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

July 11 – 23 militants (19 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, 4 border guards) have died in combat in the last 24 hours during ATO, 93 people were injured. On Friday morning, shelling of ATO forces from "Grad" multiple rocket launcher system took place near the village of Zelenopillia in Luhansk oblast. This is where most of Ukrainian servicemen died. All shots were fired from the state border with Russia, stated National Security and Defense Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko. Maybe some "unidentified" persons were firing the shots from Russia? President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that everyone involved in using "Grad" will be found and destroyed.

July 11 – International rating agency Standard & Poor's has changed its outlook for long-term rating of Ukraine under obligations in foreign currency, which is at "CCC", to "stable" from "negative."

July 11 – Investigative Committee of Russia is suspecting that 15 Ukrainian military are guilty of "loss of civilian life". Obviously, they're now going to abduct them from Ukraine, forcefully instate them into Russian citizenship, and then put up for trial – similarly to cases of Sentsov or Savchenko? Trying to scare us one again...

Blurred Lines Between War and Peace

Ukraine, Russia, and the West all have their own reasons for not calling the ongoing conflict a war, just as they all have different views of what would constitute an acceptable peace.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has kicked off his "Peace Plan" by ending the ceasefire and resuming military actions against pro-Russian forces. True, he promises to continue negotiations with the separatists, but this looks more like an attempt to soothe an openly irritated Kremlin, as well as grumpy Berlin and Paris. War and Peace in Ukraine have now acquired a paradoxical dimension: Not all efforts to pursue another ceasefire would be a step in the direction of achieving a sustainable peace.

Once upon a time it had seemed that, by creating (EU and NATO) mechanisms to prevent wars, Europe had found a remedy to the problems that had plagued the continent over the course of the blood-soaked 20th century. But the events in Ukraine have exposed a fundamental flaw in these efforts that Europe, and the West as a whole, isn't ready to deal with. The flaw is plain for all to see: Russia and Ukraine maintain diplomatic relations. They participate in international forums together. They cooperate on economic matters, albeit less actively now. People and goods cross the border. Their leaders talk on the telephone. And yet these countries are at war with one another, and this is not just a war of soft power (information warfare) but hard power as well. How else would you describe Russia's annexation of Ukrainian territory than as a hard power conflict? How else to describe an armed struggle conducted on one side by Russian citizens, on Ukrainian territory, under Russian banners, with weapons and funding supplied by Russia? Dozens of paratroopers from the 45th Guards Spetsnaz airborne regiment have been buried recently in Moscow-where and why did they suddenly die in such numbers?

This is a war that no one wants to name as such. The West doesn't want to call it war, since it would then have to take concrete measures against the aggressor, a nuclear state. Who would dare to do that? Ukraine isn't ready to press the world to call the conflict a war out of fear of contradicting the West. And it's quite clear why Russia wouldn't want to acknowledge that it's fighting a war: Moscow retains room for maneuver as long as the war goes undeclared, retaining the ability to switch out its aggressor's hat for the peacemaker's hat at will.

While the Kremlin will not recognize that Russia is at war with Ukraine, it won't normalize relations with Kiev either. This blurring of the lines between war and peace when it comes to states parallels the blurring Putin has done within Russia itself, by turning to militarism and coercion to sustain the Russian System. The ongoing crisis merely represents the application of this model to Russia's relations with Ukraine. And Ukraine isn't an end in itself for Russia, but merely an instrument for the Kremlin. By destabilizing Ukraine, Russia is fighting a proxy war with the West. Putin has been perfectly candid about his reasons for wanting to do this, stating time and again that Russia is a unique civilization that seeks to contain the West not only inside Russia but outside it too.

The current developments should not come as a surprise to anyone. The blurring of the borders between war and peace occurred as Europe entered a phase after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 that many have described as postmodern. This phase has been characterized by furtiveness on the part of the liberal democracies when it comes to living up to their principles in crafting policy: "Nothing's sacred, everything is on the table," Europe has seemed to say. After it lost its great rival and adversary, it no longer wished to focus any time or effort on preaching values. But the postmodern, transactional leaderships of Europe today find themselves poorly equipped to respond to the challenges posed by the Russian System, which is why their responses inevitably slide into accommodationism.

Western leaders are only too willing to be convinced that Kiev's problems are merely an internal affair and nothing more, and they have pressured Kiev to accept the same assessment. While the West has demanded that Moscow end its support for the separatists, it refuses to name Russia as a party in this conflict and therefore does not consider it an "aggressor." The West's leaders believe (or pretend to believe) that if they talk to the Kremlin and engage Russia, they will change the Kremlin's behavior. And Putin, a master at pretending to be accommodating while in fact forcing others to play his game, has offered his Western counterparts all the evidence they need to satisfy themselves that they're right: See, he isn't invading Ukraine after all! Nor is he supporting the separatists. Western decisiveness has prevented a new Russian incursion, Western observers gleefully say. In fact, Putin never intended to annex Ukraine's southeast; he doesn't need the added headache! It's sufficient for Kremlin purposes to turn the southeast into a new Transnistria. If he can remove the threat of new sanctions and other troubles by "conceding" something he never wanted in the first place, why not let the Western leaders think it was their decisive leadership that made him change course.

Thus today the Kremlin actively supports Ukraine's peace talks. Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergei Lavrov says that the rebels are "ready for constructive dialogue," and that Ukrainian authorities should not try "to subordinate them to Kiev." To whom, then, should they subordinate themselves?

Who wouldn't support the idea of ending all combat operations? No one, of course-except we're missing something, aren't we? The recent truce Poroshenko declared at the end of talks initiated by the Europeans with OSCE participation has actually benefited the separatists. They refused to recognize the truce and continued attacking Ukrainian forces. They breached the ceasefire constantly. Thus, the truce worked against Ukraine and aided those who were undermining its territorial integrity. Facing a loss of popular support and the further demoralization of the Ukrainian army, Poroshenko had to end the ceasefire. Now Berlin, Paris, and Moscow are once again urging Kiev to renew the ceasefire, just as Ukrainian forces are beginning to gain the upper hand against the separatists. Would Moscow still be calling for a truce if the separatists were the ones capturing Ukrainian cities?

What would a new truce mean now that the Ukrainian army is beginning to liberate territory from the separatists? Poroshenko would be doomed! He would lose the support of those who want the country to remain unified. A new truce would evaporate the Ukrainian army's recent morale gains, and it would allow the separatists to regroup and establish new supply lines. Moreover, including the separatists in the negotiating process would legitimate their political role and force Kiev to make concessions to them on the subject of Ukraine's future constitutional structure, where they see themselves as independent actors.

Moscow, meanwhile, is attempting to wear the peacemaker's hat without ever doffing its battle helmet. It may indeed succeed in this attempt, given that the lines between war and peace remain fuzzy, and given that the Europeans are ready to involve the Kremlin in the negotiating process at any cost. (Sometimes I'm not certain who wants the "peace" agenda most: Moscow, Berlin, or Paris?) With some help from the Europeans, Moscow may also be able force Kiev to agree to the special status of the Donbass region, thus lodging a permanent thorn in Ukraine's side. The list of concessions that would be expected from Kiev could be long, and it may include energy deals and carve-outs of the juiciest chunks of Ukrainian territory.

In fact, an endless negotiating process is in Moscow's interests (provided the separatists helped by constantly fanning the flames of conflict). To the Kremlin, "the goal is nothing, the movement is everything," as a famous German Social Democrat Eduard Bernstein once said. Moscow clearly hopes that the Ukrainians will soon grow unhappy with the country's new leadership, thus giving Russia more tools for influencing Ukrainian developments.

This scenario requires that Europe make Poroshenko come to the negotiating table before Kiev concludes its anti-terrorist operation. Here is what one Ukrainian observer wrote on this account:

It turns out that the EU leaders have short memory. What is surprising, apart from their lack of resolve to impose sanctions on Russia, is that they seek to turn the situation in Donbass into a strictly Ukrainian problem. Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande are vigorously twisting Petro Poroshenko's and Pavlo Klimkin's arms demanding that they restrain their military, apparently forgetting how Russia occupied Crimea and ignoring the flammable concoction of weapon shipments and mercenary missions that the Kremlin generously poured onto the smoldering Donbass region.

Peace talks would be productive if a compromise between the warring factions were possible. But if Moscow isn't about to stop destabilizing Ukraine, and if the separatists are intent on occupying part of the Donbass region, then what can they accomplish? Any Ukrainian leader who agreed to a compromise under these terms would immediately lose his legitimacy and popular support. The only talks that are possible aren't truce talks, but talks for a separatist surrender. Anything else would just prolong the confrontation and continue the disintegration of an already fragile Ukrainian state.

Western leaders find themselves in a difficult situation. On the one hand, they want to return to the past format for dealing with Russia and are already looking for ways to bring Russia back into the G8. On the other hand, they are trying to find mechanisms that will force Putin to stop his bullying. The peace talks that Moscow insists on would give the West and the Kremlin a chance to return to business as usual and forget the recent past. One can't help feeling that Europe is eager to make a deal endorsing the new status quo. Thus, Poroshenko has to agree to legitimizing the separatists and granting a special status to the territories they control (and other concessions too). If Kiev balks at this proposal, Europe may drag its feet on providing financial aid to Ukraine. What would the Kremlin have to do? It would merely have to pull its troops away from the border and promise not to repeat the Crimea scenario, which Putin had no plans to do anyway. A deal would thus give the Kremlin the tactical advantage through a negotiation process supported by the European leaders and an international institution (the OSCE).

It's possible that Kiev may be forced to support the idea of granting Donbass "special status." There are still powerful figures in the region, including the oligarch Rinat Akhmetov, who would like to secure autonomy and continue their dialogue with the Kremlin. The Ukrainian authorities may decide to get rid of the chaos-plagued part of Donbass that would resist transformation. But this scenario would not strengthen Ukrainian statehood. The separatist-controlled territory would become a black hole-a breeding grounds for violence that would spread to the neighboring countries, including Russia.

Incidentally, Moscow does not want the separatists it has nursed to become too strong. If they grew too powerful, they might draw Russia into their risky business. But Moscow doesn't want the separatists to lose either. I believe that legitimating the separatists by means of their installation as heads of local governments, virtually independent from Kiev, is actually Moscow's best-case scenario. In any event, Moscow will close Russia's borders to its mercenaries and will not allow them to return to Russia. What are they going to do in Russia? Accuse Putin of betraying the cause of the Russian World? No-rather, Moscow will try to keep them in Donbass, which will allow the Kremlin to constantly destabilize the Ukrainian state.

Now Moscow is trying to undermine pro-Russian warlords who went rogue and raised their voices against Putin and the Kremlin for betraying them and idea of the "Russian Spring" -among them Igor Girkin (Strelkov), self-proclaimed Commander in chief of the Donbass separatist forces. You can begin to see the first brushstrokes of the master plan: Setting aside the warlords, he'll now turn to a new kind of figure: political technologists with management experience and hands untainted in the recent bloodshed, most of them Russian citizens, are now prepared to take part in the negotiations process. Among this new set are the head of the Lugansk People's Republic, Marat Bashirov, and the head of the Donetsk Republic, Alexander Borodai. Moscow is prepared to undertake its New Project in Ukraine, and one can't exclude the possibility that this project will gain the approval of the Western peaceniks.

All of the above explains why allowing Kiev to restore the country's territorial integrity is the best way to bring real peace to Ukraine. Pressuring Kiev to declare a new ceasefire that will give the rebels another break will only prolong the conflict. True, after winning the war with the pro-Russian forces, Kiev will have to win another war-for the trust of those Donbass people who don't trust Kiev today.

Of course, if Kiev were successful in its "anti-terrorist operations," this would raise another interesting question: What would it do with the pro-Russian rebels and their leaders? It would hardly want to detain all of them. Russia, for its part, wouldn't want to let them return home; the Kremlin has no interest in welcoming home a slew of frustrated mercenaries who not only have proven themselves willing to fight for the idea of the Russian World but also view Putin as their betrayer. This means that they will have to die where they are fighting for the "right cause", and after their deaths they will be used as martyrs in Russia to beef up the waning military-patriotic mobilization.


P.S.: Please spread this appeal as much as possible.

Le Secteur du peuple, Lviv: Chers collègues!

La Russie a commis un acte d'agression contre l'Ukraine et a annexé la Crimée. Depuis quelques semaines, la Russie met en place des groupes terroristes et des saboteurs dans les régions orientales de l'Ukraine. Son but – perturber les élections présidentielles légitimes. Actuellement la vie des habitants dans ces regions situées en plein milieu de l'Europe s'est transformée en un cauchemar continuel. On est en train de détruire notre pays devant nos propres yeux. Par conséquent, nous prenons notre courage à deux mains pour continuer à vous tenir aux courant des événements en Ukraine. C'est un point de vue parmi d'autres. Nous essayerons de rester objectifs.

Le 11 juillet – "Une colonne de terroristes qui quittait Slovyansk le 5 juillet n'a pas été détruite par l'armée ukrainienne parce que le haut commandement avait été informé que les terroristes se protégeaient derrière les civils." – déclaration du porte-parole du Conseil national de sécurité et défense, Andriy Lyssenko.

Le 11 juillet – "A Siverodonetsk, les terroristes installent des mortiers sur les toits des maisons." – déclaration du député local, Serhiy Samarsky.

Le 11 juillet – Lors de libération de Slovyansk, Kramatorsk, Artemivsk et d'autres localités, les Forces de l'ATO ont saisi quatre véhicules blindés, trois chars et trois Grads abandonnés par les terroristes russes.

Le 11 juillet – "Lors des dernières 24 heures, 23 militaires ont été tués au cours des combats dans la région de l'ATO (19 soldats des Forces armées de l'Ukraine et 4 gardes-frontières). 93 soldats ont été blessés. Le vendredi matin, les Forces armées ont été pris sous le feu des Grads (camion soviétique lance-roquettes multiples) près du village de Zelenopillya (région de Louhansk); c'est le plus grand nombre de militaires ukrainiens tués en une fois. Les tirs venaient de la direction de la frontière avec la Russie." – déclaration du porte-parole du Centre d'information du Conseil national de sécurité et défense, Andriy Lyssenko. Peut être certains "inconnus" tiraient-ils depuis le territoire russe? Le président de l'Ukraine Petro Porochenko a déclaré que toutes les personnes qui ont utilisé les Grads seront trouvées et détruites.

Le 11 juillet – L'agence internationale de notation Standard & Poor a changé ses perspectives en ce qui concerne l'évaluation à long terme des obligations en devises étrangères de l'Ukraine – niveau CCC, c'est-à-dire, l'Ukraine est passé du niveau "négatif" au niveau "stable".

Le 11 juillet – Le Comité d'enquête de Russie pensent que 15 militaires ukrainiens sont responsables de la "mort des habitants pacifiques". Le prochain scénario possible? Il est évident qu'ils vont les kidnapper en Ukraine, les forcer à prendre la nationalité russe, puis les juger...comme dans le cas de Sentsov et Savtchenko? Voilà que les Russes essaient de nouveau de faire peur à tout le monde!

P.S.: Faîtes circuler cet appel, SVP!


Ludowy sektor Majdan, Lwów: Szanowni Państwo!

Rosja dokonała aktu agresji przeciw Ukrainie, anektując Krym. Teraz Rosja wprowadziła grupy terrorystyczno-dywersyjne na Wschodnią Ukrainę. Cel jej działań- zapobiec legalnym wyborom prezydenckim na Ukrainie. Dlatego dziś życie mieszkańców Wschodniej Ukrainy pozostaje ciągłym horrendum w środku Europy. Na naszych oczach niszczą nasz kraj. Dlatego bierzemy na siebie odwagę informować państwa o wydarzeniach na Ukrainie. To jest jeszcze jeden punkt widzenia. My postaramy się być uczciwymi.

Settore pubblico di Maidan, L'viv: Gentili colleghi!

La Russia, annettendo la Crimea, ha effettuato un atto di aggressione nei confronti dell'Ucraina. Ora essa ha introdotto gruppi terroristici e sovversivi in Ucraina orientale. Il suo fine è quello di vietare che le elezioni presidenziali legittime abbiano luogo. In questo modo la vita in Ucraina orientale si è trasformata in un incubo nel cuore dell'Europa. Davanti ai nostri occhi viene distrutto il nostro Paese. Per questo, ci prendiamo la responsabilità di informarvi riguardo agli eventi in Ucraina. Si tratta di un altro punto di vista. Cercheremo di essere obiettivi.

11 luglio – I militari ucraini non hanno eliminato la colonna di terroristi che ha lasciato Slovians'k il 5 luglio perché c'era una possibilità che i terroristi si nascondessero dietro scudi di civili, – ha detto il portavoce del Consiglio di Sicurezza e di Difesa Nazionale Andrii Lysenko.

11 luglio – A Severodonets'k i militanti stanno impostando i mortai sui tetti delle case, – ha comunicato il deputato locale Serhii Samarskyi.

Post scriptum: Si prega di diffondere queste informazioni il più ampiamente possibile.


Građanski sektor Majdana, Lavov: Poštovane koleginice i kolege!

Rusija je izvršila akt agresije prema Ukrajini anektiravši Krim. Sada je uvela terorističko-diverzantske grupe u Istočnu Ukrajinu. Cilj je da se spreče legalni izbori predsednika. Zato je sad život u Istočnoj Ukrajini pretvoren u totalni užas u centru Evrope. Na naše oči uništava se naša zemlja. Zato se usuđujemo da vas informišemo o događajima u Ukrajini. Ovo je još jedna tačka gledišta. Trudićemo se da budemo objektivni.

11. jul. – Ukrajinski vojnici nisu uništavali kolonu terorista koja je izlazila iz Slovjanska 5. jula, jer su imali informacije da se teroristi prikrivaju mirnim stanovništvom, − glasnogovornik SNBO Andrij Lisenko

11. jul. – U Severodonjecku teroristi instaliraju minobacače na krovovima stambenih zgrada, − lokalni narodni poslanik Sergij Samarski.

11. jul. – Nakon oslobađanja Slovjanska, Kramatorska, Artemivska i drugih mesta, snage ATO su zaplenile 4 bornih oklopnih kola, 3 tenka, 3 "Grada" ruskih terorista, − ministarstvo odbrane Ukrajine.

11. jul. – Tokom borbi u zoni ATO u poslednjih 24 sata poginuli su 23 pripadnika snaga ATO (19 vojnika OS Ukrajine, 4 graničara), 93 su zadobili rane različitog stepena opasnosti. Vatra na snage antiterorističke operacije iz sistema plotunske vatre "Grad" u petak ujutru na području mesta Zelenpilja u Luganskoj oblasti, gde je poginulo najviše ukrajinskih vojnika, bila je otvorena iz pravca državne granice sa Rusijom, − glasnogovornik informativnog centra SNBO Andrij Lisenko. Ili su to možda neki "nepoznati" pucali sa ruske teritorije? Predsednik Ukrajine Petro Porošenko: biće pronađeni i uništeni svi koji su upotrebili "Grad".

11. jul. – A Međunarodna rejting-agencija Standard&Poorş promenila je prognozu dugoročnog rejtinga Ukrajine po pitanju dugovanja u devizama koji se nalazi na nivou "CCC" sa "negativne" na "stabilnu".

11. jul. – Islednički komitet Rusije napravio je od 15 ukrajinskih vojnih lica osumnjičene u postupku "pogibija mirnih stanovnika". Očigledno, nameravaju da ih otmu iz Ukrajine, nasilno im daju rusko državljanstvo, a onda da im sude – kao u slučaju Sencova ili Savčenko? Ponovo zaplašuju.

Общественный сектор Майдана, Львов, информирует: Уважаемые коллеги!

Россия осуществила акт агрессии в отношении Украины, аннексировав Крым. Сейчас она ввела террористически диверсионные группы в Восточную Украину. Цель – не допустить легальных выборов президента. Поэтому сегодня жизнь Восточной Украины превращена в сплошной кошмар в середине Европы. На наших глазах уничтожается наша страна. Поэтому мы берем на себя смелость информировать вас о событиях в Украине. Это еще одна точка зрения. Мы постараемся быть объективными.

11 июля – Колонну террористов, которая убегала из Славянска 5 июля, украинские военные не уничтожали, потому что имели информацию о том, что террористы прикрываются мирным населением – спикер СНБО Андрей Лысенко.

11 июля – В Северодонецке боевики устанавливают минометы на крышах жилых домов – местный депутат Сергей Самарский.

11 июля – Во время освобождения Славянска, Краматорска, Артемовска и других населенных пунктов силы АТО захватили 4 боевых бронированных машин, 3 танка, 3 "Грады" русских террористов – Министерство обороны Украины.

11 июля – В ходе боевых действий в зоне АТО за последние сутки погибли 23 силовика (19 – военнослужащие ВС Украины, 4 пограничника), 93 получили ранения различной степени тяжести. Обстрел сил антитеррористической операции из системы залпового огня "Град" в районе поселка Зеленополье в Луганской области в пятницу утром, где погибло больше украинских военных, велся со стороны государственной границы с Россией – спикер информационного центра СНБО Андрей Лысенко. Может какие-то "неизвестные" стреляли с российской территории? Президент Украины Петр Порошенко – будут найдены и уничтожены все, кто применял "Град".

11 июля – А Международное рейтинговое агентство Standard & Poor's изменило прогноз долгосрочного рейтинга Украины по обязательствам в иностранной валюте, что находится на уровне "CCC", с "негативного" на "стабильный".

11 июля – Следственный комитет России сделал подозреваемыми по делу о "гибели мирных жителей" 15 украинских военных. Следует ожидать, что россияне собираются похищать их из Украины, принудительно предоставлять российское гражданство, а затем судить – как в случае с Сенцов или Савченко? Опять начали пугать?

Постскриптум: Пожалуйста, распространите эту информацию как можно шире.


Громадський сектор Майдану, Львів, інформує: Шановні колеги!

Росія здійснила акт агресії щодо України, анексувавши Крим. Зараз вона ввела терористично-диверсійні групи у Східну Україну. Мета – не допустити легальних виборів президента. Тому сьогодні життя Східної України перетворене на суцільний жах в середині Європи. На наших очах знищується наша країна. Тому ми беремо на себе відвагу інформувати вас про події в Україні. Це ще одна точка зору. Ми постараємося бути об'єктивними.

11 липня – Колону терористів, що виходила зі Слов'янська 5 липня, українські військові не знищували, бо мали інформацію про те, що терористи прикриваються мирним населенням – речник РНБО Андрій Лисенко.

11 липня – У Сєверодонецьку бойовики встановлюють міномети на дахах житлових будинків – місцевий депутат Сергій Самарський.

11 липня – Під час звільнення Слов'янська, Краматорська, Артемівська та інших населених пунктів сили АТО захопили 4 бойових броньованих машини, 3 танки, 3 "Гради" російських терористів- оборони України.

11 липня – У ході бойових дій у зоні АТО за останню добу загинули 23 силовики (19 – військовослужбовці ЗС України, 4 прикордонника), 93 отримали поранення різного ступеня тяжкості.Обстріл сил антитерористичної операції із системи залпового вогню "Град" в районі селища Зеленопілля в Луганській області в п'ятницю вранці, де загинуло найбільше українських військових, вівся з боку держкордону з Росією – речник інформаційного центру РНБО Андрій Лисенко. Чи може якісь "невідомі" стріляли з російської території? Президент України Петро Порошенко – будуть знайдені і знищені всі, хто застосовував "Град".

11 липня – А Міжнародне рейтингове агентство Standard & Poor's змінило прогноз довгострокового рейтингу України за зобов'язаннями в іноземній валюті, що знаходиться на рівні "CCC", на "стабільний" з "негативного".

11 липня – Слідчий комітет Росії зробив підозрюваними у справі про "загибель мирних жителів" 15 українських військових. Очевидно, що вони збираються викрадати їх з України, примусово надавати російське громадянство, а потім судити – як у випадку з Сенцовим чи Савченко? Знову застрашують.
