“Le courage c’est de chercher la vérité et de la dire ; c’est de ne pas subir la loi du mensonge triomphant qui passe, et de ne pas faire écho, de notre âme, de notre bouche et de nos mains aux applaudissements imbéciles et aux huées fanatiques ”.” – Djordje Kuzmanovic

Blog - Bombs & State Factory of Chemical Products


The State Factory of Chemical Products, Donetsk

A special mention with regards to this place since several Western media outlets have produced articles on a "dirty bomb" being developed by the DNR, using nuclear waste materials from this site.

Back in June, the main issue was that " Environmentalists are concerned about the explosion at the state factory of chemical products in Donetsk where radioactive waste is stored."  This story some how now has turned into a more sinister event by the likes of the "exclusive scoop" of a dirty bomb ran by The Times newspaper in late July 2015.
A special mention with regards to this, since The Times 'scoop' several Western media outlets have also produced similar articles on a "dirty bomb" being developed by the DNR. These simpled-minded & alarmist articles seem to be based on a lot of conjecture & hearsay, yet provide very little information on the numerous artillery & missiles strikes on the State Factory of Chemical Products complex. This might actually distort  their version of events.

Ukrainian article on the complex: https://en.informnapalm.org/nuclear-terrorism-and-the-dirty-bomb/   I am not going to aplogise for this kind of article, because this is precisely the kind of articles that the weak-willed, yellow pressitudes of the West take as the Gospel truth. 

Notice the sparing details regarding the "dirty bomb",  e;g; the use of words such as "insider", "are contemplating", "possibly, to supply other international terrorist organizations".  Does this reminder you of other events? Where have we seen this kind of language before? It should ring alarm bells, such as  the WMD case in Iraq or even the "gas attacks" in Syria.  Articles couched in vagueness but nevertheless "threatening".  Provoking a nasty reaction, pre emptive action and laying down some pathetic excuses for a potential wider conflict is the playbook of the Washington administration & NATO leadership. 

Here is what I wrote in June: (original article HERE)

Addendum 18 June: There is a twist to the series of shelling & missile strikes, in the apparent use of a thermobaric weapon to  try to wipe the State Factory of Chemical Products, off the map.  It is likely that radiation levels in Donetsk could increase, since according to an expert, there is a nuclear waste storage site in the vicinity. The context of this is truly disturbing if it does happen, as it seems to show the plans of Kiev, to turn parts of Donbass into a ecological wasteland & therefore render it uninhabitable.   http://www.ostro.org/general/society/news/473114/

Here what the leader of the DNR had to say about the nuclear waste storage site:
 http://novorossia.today/the-nuclear-waste-depository-was-not-affected-by-the-shelling-of-the-donetsk-factory-of-chemical-products-head-of-the-dpr-claimed/

If I was in his place, I'd be very very worried at the 'antics' of Kiev and the potential for an environmental & human catastrophe.  Yet this doesn't get a mention in the 'Times' & Newsweek articles since they are utterly one-sided.   If I were him, I'd seek out experts in the nuclear waste field to go on site & report back their findings on the situation & possible consequences of any further attacks on the site. Of course, I'd also make detailled plans for the evacuation of those in the vicinity.

Taking information from the Newsweek article, which gives some details on the nuclear waste stored in the facilities: " A 2002 inspection by Ukraine's State Nuclear Regulation Committee found that the level of radiation in the bunker was extremely high, at 725.2 billion Becquerel."

Unsurprisingly the Newsweek article fails to mention the repeated artillery & missile strikes  over a whole year, causing massive explosions on the industrial complex site that houses the underground waste bunker.  ( ed: I wonder why??? sarc off)

Readers are reminded that in several instances, the use of either a Tochka (Scarab) missile was reported. Here is some information on this missiles systems reportedly being used in an urban environment. The warhead is huge.  You do have to wonder what is the purpose of repeatedly hitting the same location with this kind of missile?  This goes beyond taking out a target, it is destruction beyond words, since the resulting crater is very wide & deep, in the order of




The amazing range & variety of the Ukrainian spin on why these explosions took place are breath-taking, take for example just this : " a cigarette butt was dropped".




How far we have gone as society from the days when the Serbs got bombed by NATO using depleted uranium ordnance for simply lobing mortar or artillery rounds into Sarajevo. It seems that the Western media & political elites are more than content with the frequent use of ballastic missiles in an European countries, since they are unwilling to look further than their noses in the Donbass. Why? Maybe because it is handy for the pressitude of the West to not see Russian speakers in Donbass as friends, but rather as foes.

Blog : Le peuple souterrain du Donbass




Le peuple souterrain du Donbass




Les enfants ne demandent pas de guerres, mais ils finissent par prendre le plus lourd tribut de la guerre. Voir un autre exemple qui est chaud au coeur d 'une histoire de l'aide humanitaire pour un orphelinat: http://fortruss.blogspot.fr/2015/07/come-and-get-it.html




Le peuple du Donbass, grace a l'Ukraine post - Maidan, sont assièges par Kiev et sont sous des bombardements réguliers, ne voit qu’une aide minuscule de l'UE ou de la Croix-Rouge. En raison du blocus des médias de l'Ouest , vous ne connaissiez pas leurs histoires, parce qu'ils sont simplement marqués comme des terroristes. Honteux et un déshonneur absolu par rapport à 20 ans en Bosnie, quand il y avait la couverture médiatique mur-à-mur du siège de Sarajevo.


Comme Vera Graziadei succinctement décrit le conflit dans son blog l'année dernière, le peuple du Donbass sont considérés comme des sous-humains aux yeux de l'ouest.
http://veragraziadei.com/2014/06/18/ukrainian-genocide-and-its-cheerleaders/


Children don’t ask for wars, but they end up  taking the brunt of the war.  See another example of a heart warming story of humanitarian help for an orphanage: http://fortruss.blogspot.fr/2015/07/come-and-get-it.html
 
The people of Donbass, under a post- Maidan Ukrainian siege & regular shelling, see a very minute of help from the EU or the Red Cross.  Due to the West’s media blockade, you won’t hear their stories at all, because they are simply labeled as terrorists.  Shameful & an absolute disgrace compared to 20 years in Bosnia, when it was wall-to-wall coverage of the Sarajevo siege.

As Vera Graziadie succinctly outlined,  the conflict in her blog last year, the people of Donbass are regarded as sub-humans in the West’s eyes.
