Ukraine President Signs Mobilization Decree: 50,000 To Be Drafted

OWoN: Ukraine is starving and imploding. But funded Neo Nazi Dogs can destroy its own economy, and man up for a war they will lose in total.

A country economically as sick as the Ukraine can hardly afford to draft an additional 50,000 people when it cannot pay its bills. It is only a matter of time before it implodes and causes an even worse tragedy for its people and Europe.
Without gas from Russia on generous terms, they will be the welfare state of Europe. All those residents who can find a way out will, the rest will suffer endlessly. So much for US Agency games again.

Ukraine President Signs Mobilization Decree: 50,000 To Be Drafted

And with a stroke of his pen, Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko signs a decree that mobilizes up to 50,000 "health men and women" aged 25 to 60 to the frontlines in Eastern Ukraine...

As UA Today reports, 50 000 servicemen will be drafted to the frontline in eastern Ukraine

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has issued a decree mobilising 50,000 servicemen to the frontline in eastern Ukraine.

Those eligible will receive notice papers calling them to service as soon as the Ukrainian parliament approves the measure.

The Ministry of Defense plans to draft healthy men and women, preferably with military experience. Tank operators, artillerymen, reconnaissance scouts and messengers aged 25 to 60 are in high demand.

Volodymyr Talalay, Major General: "We are not planning to draft untrained men for positions that require military efficiency. Military leaders are looking for those who have already been in the army or those who can serve within civilian professions."

Combat trainings for servicemen will take 10-15 days. Ministry of Defense officials say this timeframe is adequate to acquire combat skills and replace those soldiers who will be rotated out.



  1. They would not have to have a draft if they did not kill off all of the real Ukrainians...this is a UsA ploy to fight against Russia in a war that will not be won by them. The economic sanctions are hitting them hard. War is a racket and it allows the rogue nation to allocate funds in support of this war that will end up in the deep pockets of the banks and politicans; further taking funds from the mouths of the aMerican public using these funds for unsupported war effort that is destined to fail. Who are they kidding?

    Stop the madness!


    There were times in Ukraine’s recent history when even the country’s military brass were kneeling before the U.S. Literally. In June 2013, then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine John Tefft received the saber of the Ukrainian Cossack in the city of Kherson from a kneeling Ukrainian high-rank military official. Mr. Tefft nowadays is serving the country as an Ambassador to Russia where no such honors are even imaginable.

    But that was then—a previous regime.

    On the surface, today’s Ukraine is much more favorably disposed toward everything Western and everything American because of the exciting wind of transformations that swept through the Ukrainian political landscape last year. Its political culture looks modern, attractive, refined and European. For example, at the end of last year a new law was passed that allowed former citizens of other countries to participate in Ukrainian politics and even the government, in case they denounce their former citizenships. The reason given was the fight with notorious Ukrainian corruption. Apparently, in a country of more than 40 million people, Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk (called “Rabbit” by his citizens) couldn’t find a dozen or so native-born yet not corrupt professionals for his government.

    Now three former foreigners—ex-American Natalia Yaresko (Minister for Finance), ex-Lithuanian Aivaras Abromavičius (Minister For Economy and Trade) and ex-Georgian Alexander Kvitashvili (Minister for Public Health)—are firmly established in their new cabinets. They are just the beginning. They gave up their U.S. and European passports with only two benefits in return: a $200-a-month salary and the chance to build a prosperous new Ukraine.

    In a strange twist of fate, the Ukrainian ministers during their meetings now have to speak hated Russian—former foreigners do not speak Ukrainian well enough and locals do not speak English at the level necessary for complicated discussions on how to save a Ukraine economy that is disappearing before their eyes.

    The problems they are facing are overwhelming. The new minister for economy, Mr. Abromavičius, knows that the country is in fact bankrupt. “To expect that we are going to produce real as opposed to declarative incentive programs is unrealistic,” he declared. In other words, the new Ukrainian budget is nothing but a piece of paper. But without this piece of paper there will be no new money from the European Bank and the IMF.

  3. On Ukraine Obama Weaves a Narrative of Deceit

    If the American public knew what was being perpetrated in its name, it might put an end to the slow-motion coup d’état of the United States by corporate wealth. But it is kept in the shadows, pinioned by a harness of half-truths that underwrite its ignorance and enable its indifference.

    The public will likely remain in this state until it hears the whole truth, and not the abridged version peddled by an unscrupulous administration, its Pavlovian Cabinet, our obsequious Congress, and the sycophant media (those dutiful court stenographers of state power). Until this confederacy of knaves is exposed at scale, the Janus-faced narrative streaming from the lips of the Commander-in-Chief — whomever he or she may be — will neither change nor falter. Ringing in a New Year will not matter.

    Defending Ukrainian Sovereignty

    Perhaps the story of the year in 2014 was Ukraine. President Barack Obama has roamed the world declaiming on the sacred rights of our dear Ukrainian friends in Kiev...
    These poor Kiev allies, who overturned a corrupt government and instilled the leaders it wanted, still hopes in the humblest of terms to integrate with Europe. We must stand beside it, support its dreams, and defend its fledgling liberty from those who would usurp it.

    Most of this is fog-addled dissembling from the estimable firm of Balder and Dash, recently retained by the White House. But a few facts persist. There was a coup — but America facilitated it. A new government did take office — but it was comprised not of democrats but fascist sympathizers and neoliberal technocrats...

  4. This is a video taken by a Ukie quadricopter of the devastation at Donesk Airport. Does anyone recognise the music?

    1. This reminds me of the pictures from WWII Europe, they destroy and then they build back up...more money for them, contractors, security, supplies, equipment, etc...they own the companies...taxpayer funded. This is devastation...

    2. The music is Rebirth by Hi-Finesse. Voice is Natacha Atlas.
