Porky Makes Minsk Meat of Donbass Elections, Enriches English Language

Kiev Rips Rug Out, Merkel & Co. Blame Donbass

It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.
— Voltaire

The whole gaggle of Western observers has gone orbital over the planned elections in Donbass. From Poroshenko to Forbes,, from the European Union to the European Council on Foreign Relations, from Steffen Seibert to Jens Stoltenberg, the hue and cry is that the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics are “violating” the Minsk agreements by holding their own elections, scheduled for October 18 and November 1. But are they really?

Let’s Not Minsk Words

There are only two points in the Minsk 2.0 Package of Measures relevant to Donetsk and Lugansk local elections :

4. On the first day after the pullout [of heavy weapons], a dialogue is to start on modalities of conducting local elections in accordance with the Ukrainian legislation and the Law of Ukraine “On temporary Order of Local Self-Governance in Particular Districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts” [OTOOLSGIPDODALO, pronounced oh-TOOLZ-JIP-duh-DAH-loh —editor].

12. Based on the Law of Ukraine “On temporary Order of Local Self-Governance in Particular Districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts” [OTOOLSGIPDODALO], questions related to local elections will be discussed and agreed upon with representatives of particular districts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts in the framework of the Trilateral Contact Group.

After squinting at the above points for an hour or so, the answer becomes obvious. Whether or not a “dialogue” was started on “modalities of conducting local elections” in accordance with OTOOLSGIPDODALO is a matter of opinion. Whether or not questions related to local elections have been “agreed upon with representatives of particular districts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts” is a matter of fact: they have not. Whether or not Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada has approved a law it calls OTOOLSGIPDODALO is moot, lacking agreement from Donetsk and Lugansk. End of story.

Still a little minsked up? Maybe this will enlighten you.

Definition of the verb to minsk: An action taken by subject P against direct object Q such that:
1) P signs a deal with Q mandating P to do A before Q does B, all prior to deadline Z.
2) P postpones doing A until Z has almost arrived, forcing Q either to do B before P does A, or not to do B at all.
3) P accuses Q of breaking the deal.

By this definition, Kiev has minsked Donetsk and Lugansk big time.

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.
