An explosion at a cafe has killed Alexander Zakharchenko, the leader of the Russian-backed separatists in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, sources in the rebel administration there say.
I guess he outlived his usefulness.
I seriously doubt the Russians are the ones who planted the explosive. Hell I doubt it was even the Ukrainian government. It's more than likely a faction of the Rebels or one of the far-right militias fighting with the Ukrainians planting an IED.
FUCK THE RUSSIA!
Good riddance to this terrorist scum.
And nothing of value was lost.
Let's hope they can't piece his body together for his Russian Military funeral.
Rip in Pieces
Ironic that guy grammar is little laughably worst than my’s.
Russian media calls it as an "Act of Terror". Well, that's uh... something.
Rubles In Perestroika
I sense an impending "counterterrorist" invasion.
Weren't they still supposed to be pretending that they had nothing to do with the Rebels?
Well, maybe now they will start murdering ukranian leaders in retaliation.
Define "start." The Russian Army's been murdering Ukrainians for the past five years.
Zakharchenko was a person who actually signed Minsk Agreement implementation, not to mention that yeah, they keep getting shelled every fucking day, somthing that was reportd multiple times. If you have example of voting arranged in areas that are under constant artillery fire, please do. Otherwise you are quite uninformed.
Also, to all who think of Zakharchenko as "terorrist", here are all the people of Donetsk who came to say goodbye to him.
Sure look like "terrotist" sympathsers.
You mean that Minsk Agreement which was violated multiple times by the terrorist state which is why the Ukrainians keeps shooting at them ? He might of signed it, but he didn't help enforce it.
Also Bin Laden had a lot of sympathizers - mostly the ones with limited access to information or education. No one in the right mind sees him as a crusader.
They sure look real sad. Their grief just pours from that picture.
Personally it looks like the rebels rounded up everybody in the city for a propaganda photo shoot. "Look at all the people who came! Everybody loved him!"
a lot of people came to Stalin's funeral and Mao's funeral and Saddam Hussein's funeral and Kim Jong-il's funeral... and I think we could keep going.
The thing is, when you're a terrorist, you're not necessarily an all-round evil person that burns down women and rapes random churches for fun. You've still got a following of people who stand with you because they agree with your point of view.
Obviously, there are cases in which people don't, but they are nonetheless forced to stay in line.
They are the leaders of their factions, so the people may feel compelled to go to the funeral merely due to this reason, if not others.
This is such a blatand statement of denial and whitewash for Ukranian paramilitary formations.
Take a read through those reports, you WILL find mentions of ukranian forces violating ceasefire on their own accord.
You all need to actually take a look at what is going on in Ukranian goverment, maybe you will finally see oligarchs and right wing nationalists rather than keep whinin about "innocent pro european" leaders they got.
Reminds me of how Stalin would get long standing ovations, purely because he had a tendency of executing the first person to stop clapping. Do stuff like that enough and people will fall in line.
So if you shoot at me and break an agreement not to shoot at me, I can't shoot at you ?
Just like if you post stupid shit, you won't be called out for posting stupid shit ?
Get real Kari, every here is aware of the bullshit you post - YOU EVEN USE SPUTNIK AS A FUCKING SOURCE. Might as well ask Putin himself if the separatists are terrorists. You're like the Tudd of Russia - post shit, get called out, run away.
I mean that's just Eastern Europe, period. This is such a blanket statement, it's hilarious.
Perhaps I've missed something, but I am pretty sure the people here have been criticising the Ukrainian government often enough for your statement to be false.
Not just the government, even the army - I remember articles about their ammo dumps exploding and people saying that the Ukrainian army was a joke and that mishandling of their equipment was a lot more probable than sabotage was.
However, it is true that there are a lot less articles about Ukraine than there are about Russia.
Most of time people here provide blatant support for any kind of Ukranian actions, since their perception of Russia as grand enemy of world requires to provide support to any opposing faction, being critical of Ukrainian goverment in any way as vocal as they are about Russia would mean they accept failure of Ukranian Revolution, wich was widely supported and romantised.
Who needs statistics of ukranian goverment spending, Nationalists picking up local authority, nes about internal struggle between oligarchs when you can always blame it solely on conflict on the east?
You write word shit soo many times your post needs a toilet paper, maybe eyes too.
