I am ashamed about the actions of Germany's Government cooperating with the US against the interests of Germany, Europe, Democrats in Ukrainia and Russia. It's all about the greed for power and for russian and ukrainian ressourses.
They don't care about the ordinary people in whatever country. Their talks about human rights, democracy and freedom are pure lies.
I do hope, President Putin is a better chess player then all the Think tanks in the US and EU together, hope he makes the right moves to set them check mate.

''OSCE Chairperson-in-Offic e and Swiss President Didier Burkhalter described the referendums in eastern Ukraine as “incompatible with the Ukrainian constitution and therefore illegal.”''
So much for Swiss & OSCE neutrality!

I wonder which Ukrainian constitution Didier Burkhalter refers to. Is it the one that the Kiev’s junta violated and distributed among themselves ministerial offices under the "standing" ovation of the EU, or the one that says "WE, THE PEOPLE DESIDE ..."
Bourge oisie do not like referendums; they wand people to keep silence. No wander Catherine Ashton did not like it; but I wander how the voice of the people can be illegal?
Or may be Ukrainians are lower cast people than the Albanians in Kosovo.

Greetings from India.
I'm so happy for you guys. Now that Donetsk and Luhansk have been freed from the tyranny of the West, I believe the glorious era of new Russia is just round the corner. All the best, future Russians!

I Love to say ....Referendum is Legitimate Democracy. Never trust for the West ~ US & EU true liar.

75% turnout - an unnecessary lie. Try and find convincing video clips. We'll you won't today. Still even 30% turnout would be high considering voters were being shot by Ukrainian thugs.

US/EU Nobody listens to your lies, or hypocrisy anymore! How dare you interfere in the internal affairs of nation states. You increasingly violate international laws, as though these very same laws do not apply to you. I have news for you criminals, your time is nigh. We the people of this world are no longer fooled by you, and therefore we will fight you with pen and sword, the world over.

this referendum exceeds all levels of illegality since no international inspectors, electoral farce of the act itself, the presence of deterrence of armed men, the group of pro-Russian terrorists who lead and accompany the referendum

I only wish I were now in eastern Ukraine to celebrate Independence with these heroes of heroes! They have clearly illustrated to all, that they do not want to be ruled by EU/US Nazi Puppits. God Bless the people of Donetsk and Lugansk my prayers are with you. For all you have done. I love you all.

 

Anthony Noonan 13.05.2014 10:32

Congratulations to the people of Donetsk and Lugansk. I salute your courage in the face of of adversity, you are a shining light to the world. You have shown that power does indeed lie in the hands of the people.

"OSCE Chairperson-in-Offic e and Swiss President Didier Burkhalter described the referendums in eastern Ukraine as “incompatible with the Ukrainian constitution and therefore illegal.”"
He speaks as if the February revolution was in accordance with the Constitution. It was not necessary to lobby the coup in Kiev, then the referendum was not and Crimea was not separated. The Ukrainian scenario was developed in the USA, why in the mirror to blame if your face is crooked?

The total population of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts is over 6.5 million people combined.

T he seperatists claimed they had produced 3 million ballot papers (which were printed on standard paper using consumer level printers, so there is no way to prevent vote fraud). How did they achieve a 75% turnout with only enough ballot papers for 40% of the population?

  

only about 3.5 mln have right to vote.
but i'm happy that white house propagandists have shut down their "small groups of russian raiders terror the whole cities!" and started crying about standard paper

In one of Moscow nursery schools teacher is asking children :
- What country the children have the nicest toys in ?
- In Russia ! - Children are answering in chorus .
- And what country children have the prettiest clothes in ?

  

L ook, poor Ukrainian boy..The fact that you're stick to soviet times propaganda says a lot about YOUR development over the last 2 decades. As someone mentioned it here, Sick & tired of this psycho-op against Russia. What's your problem if own toys are for children the dearest even if they aren't most sofisticated ones?
