Located in the Cherkasy region, the Ukrainian city of Smila with 88,000 people is on the verge of imposing a state of emergency. The reason is that the heating has not started in the settlement for the upcoming season.
The further away the heating season, the thicker the “European integration” is, that’s what we’re being told by the “sly trolls of Putin” that look for Ukrainian “accomplishments”. Here is recent news from the fields:
“In Smila, Cherkasy region, they are preparing to declare a state of emergency. 80,000 residents of the city have no heating. Including hospitals, day cares, schools. That’s alright though. You guys have visa-free access to Europe. Then later you’ll be in NATO.”
The number of residents was exaggerated. In fact, there are 68,000 people. But otherwise, this isn’t a fiction created by Kremlin propagandists. If you go to Ukrainian websites, for example, the RBC Ukrainian news agency, it is easy to verify that the information is reliable.
“It is reported that the heating season in the city has not started due to debts to gas suppliers. Thus, with a strong fall in temperature, educational institutions of the 68,000-strong city may close for an undefined period. It was noted that Open Joint Stock Company “Cherkasygaz” stopped supplying gas to boiler houses of the city last year. The supplier demanded that the authorities of Smila repay the debt of the private servicing company “Smila Energoinvest” in the amount of more than 200 million hryvnias ($7.1 million). In 2010, the city council transferred to it the rights to city boiler houses and heating plants.”
This is a very interesting moment. The city council transferred boilers and heating plants to the “efficient owner” back in 2010. But until February 2014, until they overthrew the cursed Yanukovych, there was no problem with heating in Smila. And as soon as the final “European integration” began, the soul flew to heaven. Let’s hear what Alexey Tsybko, the mayor of Smila, is saying about this, trying (with difficulty) all his might to speak the Ukrainian language.
“Why did ‘GazImpex’ come to us, which are not able to accept subsidies and subventions in any way? Why, in what way, does the heating season process rise in a unilateral order? Raising this trade at 800 hryvnia for the price of gas, without having been agreed on, not with any sessions, not with the Smila council, these intentions were not voiced. It was inclined in an unapproved order.”
I think that’s enough. So, what have we learned from this stream of patriotic tongue-tied speech? That the new Maidan government, headed by the government of which is the Cherkasy neighboring countryman, Prime Minister Vladimir Groysman, gave the gas supply to some new legal entity called GazImpex. Information about this office is publicly available:
And from there it is not difficult for us to find out that these are refined Ukrainian “patriots”, whose head office is located in Ivano-Frankivsk, on Hetman Mazepa Street. Yes, and by the way, do you know the size of the authorized capital of this company, which is terrorizing the city of 68,000 from turning off heating? 1,000 hryvnia ($35!), basically not more than 2,000 rubles.
However, perhaps we are talking about another company with the same name, registered in Dnepropetrovsk, it is absolutely unimportant. Something else is important: the market decided. That is, the problems of Smila are consequences of the accession of the “European integration” in Ukraine, which opened the gates to animal capitalism not even in the style of the 90s of the last century, but much worse.
The higher the price of gas for the population, as required by the IMF looming behind the gas companies, the more situations like in Smila will happen in Ukraine. And the more we will see on YouTube the mayors who are trying to put words together in Ukrainian, that no one has coordinated the price increase with local councils.
And why would this opinion of local councils worry the people who came to power over the corpses of Maidan sheep activists? How many people from Smila drove in 2013-2014 to Kiev, on the Maidan? Or maybe to support the Berkut? (Riot police that withstood militant protesters for months.) And the ones that supported the Nazi punishers of Donbass?
Continue eating now, before you choke. Or maybe you have enough spirit to announce the Smila People’s Republic? There’s plenty of weapons circulating in Ukraine, huh?
Hilarious! One of his most sarcastic efforts.
The short piece with the Mayor is perfect parody, except it’s real.
The bozo trying to speak Ukrainian (his “native” tongue) says it all. Ukies are the new Larry, Moe and Curly rolled up into one “Stupid”.
Freezing kids and old folks is truly sad. But the Ukies have made their bed and are living in it now.
Declaring their own Republic was the clincher at the end of this piece. Plenty of weapons around to facilitate them fighting for “heat”.
One of his best . . .
As always, I appreciate you reading/viewing the new Ostashko translations, Larchmonter. And I do agree, this is one of his best analysis especially in regards to the Ukraine. That mayor sure must have dreaded the idea of speaking to the camera only in Ukrainian :)
”Continue eating now, before you choke. Or maybe you have enough spirit to announce the Smila People’s Republic?”
To which Alexey Tsybko proudly replies:
”No % # * People’sh Republic. I have enough shpirit to keep myshelf warm and the whole of Shmila too!”
Humour aside, what this utter madhouse which is Maidanite Ukraine shows is that, today, Fascism and its Liberal facilitators are one and the same. The fascists have dropped their ’social’ (sic) pretensions while the liberals have similarly dropped their alleged commitment to ’freedom’, especially in the context of national independence. The Ukros, whether they understand it or not, have committed a most staggering blunder: Their Maidan apeshit brought them neither Nazi Germany’s ambitious industrial and social programmes; nor the Anglo-American prosperity based on world-wide rape and pillage. Sure, George Soros doled out some handsome bribes for wreaking havoc — accompanied by Nuland’s delicious eatables even — but that was about it. The West is rotting at an accelerating pace; its rampant greed, corruption, and pure incompetence have nothing on offer to the average Ukro except Russophobia. Maybe that ”helps”.
Every country facing a possible colour revolution will look at the ukraine and perhaps think twice before allowing their country to become ‘the next Ukraine”.
Chilling! How will the people get by? You know this is not the last whisper of the shut-off valve we are going to hear.
Why isn’t this the feather that breaks the camel’s back? Why haven’t people taken up arms yet to undo the Maidan fiasco? How can they even maintain links with a nonexistent government which is incapable of guaranteeing the bare minimum? No heating in Eastern Europe threatens life, which is the ultimate threat. I cannot believe that people will just let babies and elders freeze to death. Any reasonable soul would just fight back.
Perhaps it is. The Rada just declared martial law. Ostensibly they did so because of the Black Sea incident, but one must wonder if perhaps they did it to keep the peasants from revolting.
Or did they deliberately create the Black Sea “incident” in order to impose martial law to control situations like Smilia?
There is still some kind of appeal going on re the bonds…..presumably there will be a decision re Scythian gold from Crimea exhibited by Ukraine in Netherlands that they want to hang onto….Ukraine forests are rapidly being denuded probably not enough left to fuel new maidan protest bonfires…..or make rafts for Ukrainians to escape down the rivers or escape to the east on temporary wooden bridges over rivers or make wooden sledges to go east over ice and snow….or make fuel from trees for cars…military vehicles…note Russia scrambled jets today over 3 Ukraine naval ships and two more on their way flaunting the “rules “over the sea of Azov plus UK hydrology ship thingy with marines going to Black Sea( maybe it is some kind of intelligence control and or ops. centre gathering info to destabilise the Kerch bridge who knows with Gavin Williamson angry schoolboy in charge and recent revealing of the UK centred hybrid warfare inititiative)….. is a chemical attack still on the cards in the Donbass?
Keep listening to what America the ex-Great tells you and sooner or later EVERY state will be reduced to this: a vicious, slow-motion, tragi-comic train wreck. The UK is already teetering on the brink.
The Ukraine might get some gas from Russia for free. They will take the gas and then say how evil the Moskals are.
“They will take the gas and then say… ”
They will take gas where ? How ? From whom ? from Poland? Germany ?
Ha ha. Maybe Porky will say that the gas comes from Saturn — one of that planet’s moons (Titan) has a lot of methane.
“Tensions are running high around the Kerch Strait, separating Crimea from mainland Russia after Ukrainian vessels violated the Russian border. The passage was blocked by a cargo ship and fighter jets were scrambled.
The Russian authorities have taken some drastic measures in an attempt to prevent any provocations from the Ukrainian Navy ships that have approached the Kerch Strait while sailing through the Russian territorial waters without authorization.
Russia has literally stopped all navigation through the waterway using a cargo ship. Videos from the scene released by the Russian media show a large bulk freighter accompanied by two Russian military boats standing under the arch of the Crimea Bridge and blocking the only passage through the strait.”
Lots going on re Kerch…..Turchinov even now requesting RADA to permit declaration of marshall law according to Sputnik…vids etc…southfront posts…Mogherini says EU will never recognise Crimea as Russian..bridge not built with permission of Ukraine etc….Eu says rights of navigation should not be infringed etc…but no-one in EU condemns Ukraine massive shelling of Donetsk civilian residential.areas today….note there are still many military nato exercises in Baltic Poland Lithuania going on after the last ginormous one.
So is this just another mosquito bite? Or the beginning of something more?
This means: Washington has decided that time works against it and that status quo there (and elsewhere) is no longer tolerable. And that the only chance of breaking it is to stir a dramatic confrontation, and then fish in muddied waters. Figuring, while it got nothing to lose, it just may
* finally draw Russia in a war directly, or
* put Russia on a defensive diplomatically, or
* get concrete concessions from Russia, or
* …, or
* all of the above.
This is the free market.
