Russian Recognition of Donbass Long Overdue

In February 2014, the Obama/Biden regime’s Maidan coup transformed democratic Ukraine into Nazi-infested fascist rule.

In response, Donetsk and Lugansk held referendums weeks later for their people to decide on whether to go along or break away.

Results were overwhelming.

Almost 90% of Donetsk residents voted for self-determination.

In Lugansk, results showed 96.2% support for self-rule.

Popular sentiment to break away from Kiev was all about opposition to living under fascist rule.

Turnout was high — nearly 75% in Donetsk, 81% in Lugansk.

Reflecting overwhelming popular sentiment, Lugansk People’s Governor Valery Bolotov said the following:

“We have chosen our own path of independence from tyranny and bloody dictatorship by Kiev junta, from fascism and nationalism.” 

“We have chosen the path of freedom and the rule of law.”

Co-chairman of Donetsk’s people’s Republic Denis Pushilin declared:

“We, the people of Donetsk People’s Republic…announce that the Republic, from now on, is a sovereign state.”

It’s “according to the will expressed by the residents of Donetsk.”

In “re-establish(ing) historical justice,” (Pushilin) ask(ed) the Russian Federation (on behalf of regional residents) to consider the request of the Republic to join Russia.”

At the time, a Kremlin press statement said the following:

“We have taken note of high voter turnout despite attempts to derail the voting, and we condemn the force used, including military hardware, against civilians, which lead to fatalities.”

“Moscow respects the will of the people in Donetsk and Lugansk and hopes that the practical realization of the outcome of the referendums will be carried out in a civilized manner, without resorting to violence, through dialogue between representatives of Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk.”

“In the interests of establishing such a dialogue all mediation efforts will be welcome, including by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.”

Sergey Lavrov said the following:

“We have taken note of high voter turnout despite attempts to derail the voting, and we condemn the force used, including military hardware, against civilians, which lead to fatalities.” 

Russia’s lower house State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin said the following:

“The referendums show(ed) (the will of the people) to defend their rights, essentially, their wish to be free.”

They believe “their rights are massively violated in the current state system.”

Russian upper house Federation Council member Sergei Tsekov said that “Donetsk and Lugansk regions demonstrated real choice.” 

“World nations should recognize it.”

“Unfortunately, the self-proclaimed authorities of Ukraine did not let (both regions) hold their referendums in a calm atmosphere, but, clearly, the vote demonstrated the will of people…”

“The referendums have totally convincing results.”

“We saw how enthusiastic people were about the referendum and how many of them came to polling stations.”

“If the world unwaveringly supports democratic values and wishes peace and accord in Ukraine, it should recognize the referendums and do its best to assist Ukrainian regions and the center to sit down and agree on their future.”

Nearly eight years later on Tuesday, Russia’s lower house State Duma voted overwhelmingly to recognize the sovereign independence of the People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk by a vote of 351 to 16 with one abstention.

Following the vote, State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin said the resolution agreed on “will be signed immediately” and sent to 

Vladimir Putin, adding:

“Lawmakers believe that the recognition of DPR and LPR will create the grounds for ensuring security guarantees and protecting the population of the republics from external threats, as well as strengthening international peace and regional stability in accordance with the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and will initiate the process of international recognition of both states.”

Formal recognition of DPR and LPR sovereignty should be followed by fulfilling the aspiration of their people to become Russian republics.

In 2019, Putin signed a decree to “simplify the process for (their) residents to become Russian citizens.”

DPR and LPR becoming Russian republics is the next logical step.

It’s not an annexation issue.

Both self-declared republics should be offered the option of holding referendums for their people to decide up or down on joining Russia.

Moscow should then honor their sentiment.

If it’s for joining Russia— what’s highly likely — admitting them as new republics would protect their people from Kiev aggression, benefit them socioeconomically and politically.

It’s a long overdue step, Moscow should initiate straightaway.

  1. Don’t expect Dumbass Dementia’d Biden’s zioneocon puppeteers/minders to read this and pass it up the chain:
    they wouldn’t recognize Donbass from Dumbass….

    Can anyone say “Crimea”?

    Great post, as is typical!

    Uncle Sam breaks up and recognizes countries left and right..

    Yugoslavia to..
    South Macedonia

    perfect Examples

    No problem.

    Their mission in fact,
    Is to Balkanize the World.

    Quick aside,

    Until recently, I thought Putin opposed recognition and
    annexation because of the Blowback from the West

    The Bedwetters..
    The Butthurts..

    But now I think he’s playing the long game..

    He thinks he’s GETTING all the Ukraine back

    And the Donbass would be a critically important ballast and progressive base to help rule the country in a new direction.

    The Whole Pie.

    I remember after the First Battle between Alexander and
    The Persian King Darius III

    At the Granicus..

    Darius in defeat offered Alexander 1/3 of his Empire..

    Parmenio his highest General

    Also his father’s most accomplished and highest General

    Told Alexander to take the offer

    Alex replied
    ” If I were you,.Parmenio
    I would…”

    But as we know..
    Alex didn’t..

    He meant that as no sleight.on Parmenio

    But his youth and vigor
    And curiousity bade him not.

    Putin thinks he knows something akin to that

    We’ll see.

    I’d recognize and annex them
    Yesterday.

    Enough of the Terror..!

    Post Script:

    I might add, 2500 yrs hence:

    Had Alex taken 1/3 the Empire
    The Mediterranean to Euphrates

    He probably would have been long lived, rich, famous, happy and died in his sleep peacefully a contented man.

    Rather than in a desert, with typhus and malaria in 100 degree heat..
    With a half dozen wounds from arrows fighting Porus on the Ganges.
