Donetsk, Novorossiya, Peace Talks

Zakharchenko’s Strength Shines Through Hostile Spiegel Interview.

Near Quemado, New Mexico

Quemado Institute has been described by a Donetsk-based news outlet as “the editorial board of Novorossiya.” We appreciate the recognition. We are a small group of physicists and engineers who live in the United States and own an elk and wildlife preserve near the town of Quemado, New Mexico. Hence our name. Quemado Intistute has no direct connection with anyone in Ukraine, Russia, or Novorossiya.

Our support for the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR/LPR) stems from having conducted in-depth research, during a year of full-time study, into the events that led to the creation of these two fledgling nations. These nations have emerged in our consciousness as ideal prototypes for free countries, in a world where very few countries are free. These nations are not perfect; no nation is, old or new. They must fight for their freedom and independence in every way available to them: through diplomatic and media efforts, internal political organization, and unfortunately, through military operations as well, the latter driven by the overwhelming, irrational international opposition to their very existence. It follows that, were their freedom granted, military conflicts would end. This we advocate.

We are not anti-American. Nor are we pro-Russian. Our policy encourages a balance among the world’s three superpowers. We see the support of the emergence of the new loose federation referred to by the name Novorossiya as having nothing to do with our larger national alignments. We strongly urge that the United States reverse its policy on Ukraine, and we do not believe this to be impossible. Novorossiya is at war with Ukraine due to a clash of civilizations. Its circumstance is unique. Its independence will therefore not threaten to topple the “Order of Europe”, to use Angela Merkel’s phrase.

What will threaten to topple the Order of Europe is a heightened war in Europe’s central-east region, reminiscent of the the sparks that ignited World Wars I and II. In the interests of peace on earth, we suggest the simple granting of independence to the DPR and LPR as the safest and surest of strategies.

Donetsk People's Republic Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko

Donetsk People’s Republic Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko

Donetsk People’s Republic Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko exemplifies the great leadership required for building a new nation. His strength and wisdom shine through every interview, hostile or friendly. We present below an interview by the obviously hostile Spiegel journalist Christian Neef, who challenges Zakharchenko with loaded questions, and who is forced to editorialize between the prime minister’s answers in an effort to obscure Zakharchenko’s manifest intelligence and integrity, a task at which Neef is less than successful.

The interview was preceded by a Spiegel introduction which we omit. It can be read by referring to the source. The text of the interview is as follows:

Donetsk Separatist Leader: ‘We Are Not Citizens of Ukraine’

Interview Conducted By Christian Neef

SPIEGEL: Mr. Zakharchenko, you say that the Ukrainian leadership is in the process of unleashing a new war. In fact, there has been shooting again along the cease-fire line — at the Donetsk airport and near the port city of Mariupol. Has the Minsk agreement failed?

Zakharchenko: The airport and the embattled town of Shyrokyne, near Mariupol are symbolic places, both for us and the Ukrainian army. Kiev wants to recapture the airport as quickly as possible. It has not abided by any of the terms of the Minsk agreement. Above all, it was supposed to establish direct contact with us, which hasn’t happened to this day.


SPIEGEL: So Kiev alone is to blame for the fact that there is still no peace?

Zakharchenko: Ninety-percent of the demands in the Minsk agreement apply to Kiev. We have done everything conceivable. We have withdrawn military technology and we have handed over prisoners to the other side.

SPIEGEL: All prisoners?

Zakharchenko: What do you mean by all? We turned over the last 16 Ukrainians, but then the war continued, and each side is now taking new prisoners. And Kiev is not withdrawing its heavy weapons.

SPIEGEL: You haven’t done so, either. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has confirmed that your people fired missiles at the city of Avdiivka in recent days.

Zakharchenko: I can tell you why. If we withdraw our weapons and the other side fires at us, we have to respond. That’s logical, isn’t it? And that’s why the heavy weapons are returning to their old positions.

SPIEGEL: So the war is continuing.

Zakharchenko: Because Kiev is illegally occupying part of our territory. We define “our territory” as the entire Donetsk region, within the borders that previously made it part of Ukraine.

SPIEGEL: There are suggestions that Russia is still supporting you with troops and military technology. A badly injured Russian tank driver confirmed this in an interview. It’s hypocrisy to continue denying it.

Zakharchenko: Listen, two of my cousins are now here in the Donetsk People’s Republic. They are Russian citizens, but they are also my relatives. One of them used to live in Astrakhan and the other in Irkutsk. One of them is a former career officer. Is that what you call Russian military aid? I say that my cousins have come here to help me. Kiev calls it Russian aid.

Zakharchenko is unwilling to discuss the revelations of Russian soldier Dorzhi Batomunkuyev, who admitted in an interview in March that he and his entire tank battalion, consisting of 31 tanks, had been sent to Donetsk on Feb. 8. He said they had painted the tanks in camouflage colors at their home barracks, and that they were later ordered to turn over all documents and phones. According to the soldier, no one gave them any marching orders, and they only realized where they were going when they saw the sign for Donetsk city limits.

SPIEGEL: Let’s ignore the Russian army for a moment. How many men do you have under arms? Twenty-three thousand, as you said recently? Plus 60,000 reservists?

Zakharchenko: There are more than that by now, but it’s a military secret. Those 60,000 are volunteers who have signed up at the military commandants’ headquarters and would take up arms in an emergency.

SPIEGEL: It doesn’t appear that you will be able to reach a political compromise with Kiev. President Petro Poroshenko describes the People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk as “occupied territory.” You are now threatening to take over Mariupol and Kharkiv.

Zakharchenko: I have always said that the Donetsk People’s Republic is comprised of the entire former Donetsk region. We see any part that is not in our hands yet as being illegally occupied. Kharkiv isn’t part of that.

SPIEGEL: The borders of the old Donetsk region are still too far away for you.

Zakharchenko: What do you mean by far? It’s only 120 kilometers (74 miles).

SPIEGEL: How do you intend to capture this additional territory?

Zakharchenko: The faster, the better. And by peaceful means, if possible.

There is no sign of a peaceful settlement, with neither of the two sides willing to back down at the moment. Zakharchenko speaks quickly, and his facts and arguments are often contradictory. Like his opponent, Ukrainian President Poroshenko, the Donetsk “leader” is cherry-picking the elements of the Minsk agreement that seem beneficial to him, or he is reinterpreting it. It’s a patchwork quilt of truth.

Zakharchenko keeps repeating that he is not a politician but merely an employee who is serving his country, and that it is independent of Russia. Nevertheless, a portrait of Russian President Vladimir Putin hangs on the wall of his office, and the Russian flag stands behind his desk chair. The rest of the furnishings are from various eras. There is a set of knight’s armor in the corner and leaning against the window is a Bulawa club, a symbol of the power of Ukrainian Cossack rulers. Modern pistols are displayed on a bookshelf, along with the collected works of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. The separatists’ mindscape seems both confused and diverse.

SPIEGEL: Why did neither you nor the head of the Luhansk People’s Republic want to the sign the agreement in Minsk in February that (German Chancellor) Angela Merkel, (France President) François Hollande and Vladimir Putin had negotiated?

Zakharchenko: Because the first versions — and there were 14 of them — absolutely did not correspond with anything we could accept. In the end, we signed the one that contained the most advantageous terms for us at the time.

SPIEGEL: Under pressure from Vladimir Putin.

Zakharchenko: Yes, there was tremendous pressure — not just from Russia but also from the Europeans and from Kiev. However, we see the Minsk agreement as only a first stage of a possible settlement. The other side, however, claims that the agreement settles all contentious issues. We insist on negotiating directly with Kiev.

SPIEGEL: The Ukrainians want to see international peacekeeping troops stationed in the Donets Basin, the Donbas. Why do you reject this?

Zakharchenko: According to the United Nations, there is a series of conditions for deploying such troops. Kiev would have to admit that a real war is taking place in Ukraine, and it would also have to declare a state of war. But Poroshenko doesn’t want that, because the International Monetary Fund would then refuse to provide additional loans. Besides, we are capable of solving the problems here ourselves. Foreign troops would hardly be able to stop the combat operations.

SPIEGEL: Some members of the Russian parliament, the Duma, want to see Russian peacekeepers sent to the Donbas. Would that be an option?

Zakharchenko: I just said that we need to solve our problems on our own.

SPIEGEL: The Ukrainians first want to hold the regional elections in eastern Ukraine that they are demanding. You, however, insist that the constitution must be amended and that the status of the separatist territories defined. Months could pass before that happens.

Zakharchenko: And why can’t we solve these problems at the same time? Why can’t the economic blockade be lifted first?

SPIEGEL: If elections are held in your territory, will the citizens who fled to other parts of Ukraine after the war began also be allowed to vote?

Zakharchenko: There are fewer of them than of the refugees who went to Russia. Until the war began, the Donetsk People’s Republic had a population of 4.8 million. More than a million now live in Russia, and perhaps 2.3 million are still here. Another 700,000 are now in the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic occupied by Ukraine.

SPIEGEL: You expect them to support you. The Kiev government is supposed to take full control of the border with Russia right after the elections. Will you ever accept that?

Zakharchenko: In reality, the point is that we will take over control. In accordance with the Minsk agreement, we have formed a border service, and the development of border posts will be completed within the next three weeks. Crossing the border illegally will no longer be possible then.

SPIEGEL: If you are the only ones controlling the border, Russian military technology will continue to flow freely into the country.

Zakharchenko: Have you ever seen them at the border yourself?

SPIEGEL: You don’t let us go there, and not even the OSCE, with a few exceptions. But the battle for Debaltseve in February would not have been possible without Russian help.

Zakharchenko: I commanded 587 men when Debaltseve was captured. Believe me, I didn’t see a single regular Russian military unit. And I was wounded there myself.

SPIEGEL: Many rebel groups are fighting independently on your side. Do you even have any control over these armed units anymore?

Zakharchenko: According to Minsk, we were required to disarm units that were not part of the people’s army or the territorial defense battalions. This was done without any excesses, and these people were incorporated into the Interior Ministry or other battalions.

But the world in his republic isn’t nearly as orderly as Zakharchenko tries to portray. His men in the Defense Ministry do see the disarming of rebels acting independently as a problem. The program only began in April, they say, and in the first five days alone, 65 men were arrested for refusing to give up their weapons voluntarily.

SPIEGEL: Have you ever considered a federation with Ukraine a possibility?

Zakharchenko: I did a year ago. But that’s over now.

Frank-Walter Steinmeier (

Frank-Walter Steinmeier (–

SPIEGEL: You now want Russia to recognize your republic. But that would “immensely complicate” a resolution of the conflict, says German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

Zakharchenko: Germany should recognize us even sooner. It would make life easier for the people here.

SPIEGEL: Conditions have been poor in your republic since the economic blockade began. What are you doing to combat the problem?

Zakharchenko: We have started paying out pensions, we are slowly getting coal production up and running again and the railroad will be operating again soon. Be it coal or metal, we will return to 2014 production levels.

SPIEGEL: Is the money for the pensions coming from Russia? Is that why they are being paid in rubles?

Zakharchenko: We supply coal to Russia, and we are paid in rubles. But do you think Ukraine could survive without our coal? It is buying through all kinds of circuitous routes. The EU is also interested, including Bulgaria, Poland, Romania and especially Spain. That means we get rubles, hryvnia and dollars.

SPIEGEL: Who do you think should pay for the reconstruction of the Donbas?

Zakharchenko: Ukraine, of course. It destroyed everything here.

SPIEGEL: Ukraine is practically bankrupt.

Zakharchenko: We don’t care if Ukraine is bankrupt. We are not citizens of Ukraine. We will present them with our bill. Perhaps German money will also help.

During the interview, Zakharchenko repeatedly mentions the “fascists” in Kiev. He is critical of the fact that Poroshenko’s government is receiving €500 million ($550 million) from the “iron chancellor,” Angela Merkel. He insists that his People’s Republic is in fact entitled to the money, as compensation for its war losses. But the German money is being “stolen” in Kiev, he argues. It is obvious that the leader of the People’s Republic is entirely reliant on Russia. The ruble has already found its way into Donetsk, where the Russian currency can be used to pay for gasoline at filling stations. Ruble cash registers can also be found in supermarkets and items on restaurant menus are priced in rubles.

Still, there is a touch of melancholy in Zakharchenko’s final answer. The interview has already been underway for an hour, and at times it has turned into a heated argument. In the end, a long argument ensues between the separatist leader and the reporter over whether the uprising on Maidan Square in Kiev was a coup d’état and the current Kiev government is a “fascist junta.” Zakharchenko still insists that his republic is fighting fascists, and says that Russia feels the same way.

SPIEGEL: Nevertheless, your former prime minister, Alexander Borodai, regrets that Russia doesn’t support the desire for independence by the people in the Donbas in the same way it supports Russians in Crimea. Do you agree?

Zakharchenko: That’s his personal opinion. But if there were a “Russian spring” here, as there was in Crimea, I would vote for it with both hands.

One thought on “Zakharchenko’s Strength Shines Through Hostile Spiegel Interview.

  1. I’ve never seen this sort of editorializing within an interview. Spiegel is pathetic.

Censorship Looms Over European Union

Quemado Institute editor Karl Pomeroy received a legal threat today in response to a comment he posted on the Russia Insider website about the rise of the R********d banking family. The comment did not mention race, but was of historical content. The threatener accused Karl of “spreading Nazi propaganda,” then repeated the full text of the German Criminal Code Section 130, which outlaws inciting “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins,” which Karl’s comment did not do. A similar law, it was claimed, is now in force in 11 other European countries and carries a penalty of up to five years. The wording of the law is so vague, it could be applied to any criticism of those in power. If a political analyst can accidentally “violate” this totalitarian decree, there is no freedom of speech or press in Europe.
