Poroshenko Mobilises His Radicals as Zelensky Signs the Steinmeier Formula

Poroshenko is eager for revenge!

After the Minsk meeting the predicted mass protests in Ukraine began. Why?

In fact, nothing new was adopted. Ukraine coordinated the “Steinmeier formula” for elections in Donbass, which is a mechanism for the implementation of the obligations that were earlier assumed by Kiev. The rhetoric of slogans like “No special status, amnesty, or negotiations” that are voiced outside the administration of the Ukrainian president Zelensky are, to put it mildly, inappropriate since these points are stated in the Minsk Agreements.

Historical information, the 2015 “Package of Measures”

Paragraph No. 4: “Launch a dialogue, on day 1 of the withdrawal, on modalities of local elections in accordance with Ukrainian legislation and the Law of Ukraine ‘On interim local self-government order in certain areas of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions’ as well as on the future regime of these areas based on this law.

Adopt promptly, by no later than 30 days after the date of signing of this document a Resolution of the Parliament of Ukraine specifying the area enjoying a special regime, under the Law of Ukraine ‘On interim self-government order in certain areas of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions’, based on the line of the Minsk Memorandum of September 19, 2014.”

Paragraph No. 5: “Ensure pardon and amnesty by enacting the law prohibiting the prosecution and punishment of persons in connection with the events that took place in certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine.”

Paragraph No. 6: “Ensure release and exchange of all hostages and unlawfully detained persons, based on the principle ‘all for all’. This process is to be finished on the day 5 after the withdrawal at the latest.”

As a reminder, the “Package of measures” was signed by the chairman of contact group on the settlement of the conflict in Donbass from Ukraine Leonid Kuchma, under the president Poroshenko.

Well, what new thing was adopted after the signing of the letter at the last meeting in Minsk that caused such an impassioned reaction among protesters? Nothing…

It’s just that Poroshenko is eager for revenge after being defeated in the election, and uses any excuse to return to the soft and so desired chair. And the technologies and mechanisms that are being used to achieve this goal are the same ones that were used in 2014. The paid gastarbeiters of the western regions who returned from the European fields gather in Kiev to “do a Maidan”, radicals and nationalists are used as a fist, Nayev prepares riots in the army, and Biden already stocks up with cookies …

As one very well-known filmstar, Gotsman, one said: “oil painting”, but whether or not this picture will be finished depends on the sane people in Ukraine who during all this time were used and deceived…
