Russia’s Leader Putin Rejects Ukrainian Separatists’ Aim to Become Part of Russia.
But Separatists Will Almost Certainly Receive Reconstruction Aid from Russia.
The great German newspaper German Economic News, headlined on Saturday, September 20th, ‘Welcome Russia at the G20 summit: End of Isolation’ (German original: ‘Ende der Isolation: Russland bei G20-Gipfel willkommen’), and reported that, ‘Because the USA needs Russia in its fight against terror-IS, the G20 speculation to isolate Russia in the world community has been shelved. The conflict in the Eastern Ukraine is therefore classified as [being only] regionally [important].’ Moreover, ‘Americans and Russians agreed behind the scenes on a division of the Ukraine. … The Ukrainian government and the rebels in the east have agreed on the establishment of a buffer zone in the east of the country. … The resulting 30 km wide buffer zone along the [battle] front will be monitored by observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).’
This is, essentially, the announcement introducing truce-lines, such as were established at the end of the Korean War and many others.
However, the foreign-affairs leader of the Ukrainian separatists says that their efforts to get Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to accept their territory as being a part of Russia have been firmly rejected by Putin’s Government; and, so, ‘We will build our own country.’
This important statement from the foreign-affairs leader Andrei Purgin on Wednesday, September 17th, was not headlined nor even the topic of any U. S. news report; it was instead inconspicuously buried halfway through an AP news story that focused on ‘East Ukraine Casualties.’ It’s common for propagandistic news reports, such as characterize the U. S. media, to bury what’s important in the news story, and not even to headline that crucial information, when that information violates the regime’s propaganda that they’ve been trumpeting. So: this information was buried, and was not headlined. The American media had portrayed Putin as the aggressor behind Ukraine’s war, and had hidden that Obama was actually the aggressor. The extremely violent February 22nd overthrow of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych was, as this proves, a fascist coup by the U. S. And as the transcript of the phone conversation between two EU officials shown here documents, they recognized on February 25th that it had been precisely that. Furthermore, President Obama’s agent, Victoria Nuland, on February 4th, had already selected Arseniy Yatsenyuk, whom she affectionately referred to there as ‘Yats,’ to run the country. And her U. S.-engineered coup in Ukraine didn’t occur until February 22nd, and it then installed ‘Yats’ to run the country.
