The Donbass is breaking away from an agonizing Ukraine — The Saker

Tectonic shifts are continuing to occur in the political landscape of the Ukraine. Last week, following the imposition of a total blockade against Novorussia by the Ukronazis, Russia declared that she will from now on recognize the official documents emitted by the DNR and LNR authorities. This week, the Novorussian authorities have nationalized all the key factories of the Donbass. Furthermore, the Novorussians have now declared that since the Ukrainian authorities are not willing to purchase their coal and anthracite they will from now on export them to Russia. And just to make sure that they cover all their bases, the Novorussians have also declared that from now on only the Russian Ruble will be circulating in the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics.
Not to be undone, the Ukronazis have also taken a highly significant step: the Ukrainian Prime Minister has declared that he thinks that the irregular forces currently enforcing the blockade should be considered official border guards (as for these soon to be ‘border guards’, they have explained that for their main border post shall be called ‘nightingale’ in honor of the Nachtigall battalion of the Nazi Abwehr).
Let’s sum all this up:
1. The Urkonazis completely close down the unofficial border with Novorussia 2. Russia recognizes Novorussian documents 3. The DNR and LNR nationalize all the Ukrainian industry in the Donbass 4. The Ukronazis declare that the line of contact is now to be considered a border 5. The Novorussians declare that the Russian Ruble is the only legal currency in Novorussia 6. The Novorussians will now export their entire production of coal/anthracite to Russia 7. All the factories in Novorussia will no longer pay taxes to Kiev
