The OSCE mission hastily leaves Donetsk


The man-made “evacuation panic” that began in Ukraine against the backdrop of hysteria about an “inevitable Russian attack” also affected the activities of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Donbas. On the morning of February 13, the United States and Great Britain informed about the emergency evacuation of their representatives, working as part of the mentioned OSCE SMM, from the territory of Ukraine.


The Americans and the British quickly left the Donbass. Following them, representatives of other Western-oriented countries hastily gathered.

It became known that a convoy of six SMM vehicles proceeded from Donetsk and the DPR in general, through one of the Oleksandrivka entry-exit checkpoints (EECPs) towards Ukraine. The Telegram channel Inside Donetsk informed the public about this, referring to its informant. He explained that the contact line is usually crossed by 2-3 SMM off-road patrol vehicles with monitors, so the departure of a whole convoy could indicate the start of an evacuation. Moreover, the footage of the checkpoint crossing is already available on the web.


The parking lot of the OSCE mission at the headquarters in Donetsk has really thinned out compared to last night. But about twelve armored cars (armored off-road vehicles - ed.) are still at the office of European observers. It should be noted that usually cars were very densely packed in the parking lot.

- the WarGonzo Telegram channel clarified, adding that two more cars left a few hours later.

The OSCE does not comment on this information. In addition, it is not known what is happening with a similar SMM on the territory of the LPR.

Note that before this, the head of the DPR, Denis Pushilin, announced the impending evacuation of the OSCE SMM from Donetsk. In his opinion, this indicates the possibility of an early offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the positions of the People's Militia.

      There was one case in history (at least I know one) when the country's leadership brought the conflict to a hot phase and faded out of the country. But even in Poland, the political and military leadership held out for three days. In Ukraine, they decided to fade even BEFORE the start of the war. Which, by the way, may not be.
      It is no longer a country, but simply a territory.

        This has long been just a territory, there is no power "managers" with the police. Suffer for the master's good, they did not sign request I don’t know how it will all end now, but it will not pass without consequences. Everyone sees everything. Suppose they do not dare to twitch, although there is a possibility of provocation (start kneading without the order of the pianist and dump), how did those who had time to dump return and begin to pretend to be in power?
        What is it about? "There was one case." I don't remember what it was about. Inject, otherwise I won’t be able to fall asleep, I’ll think about where it was and when laughing

          I wrote. Poland 1939

          On September 1, President I. Moscitsky left Warsaw; on September 4, the evacuation of government agencies began. On September 5, the government left Warsaw, and on the night of September 7, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief E. Rydz-Smigly.

          Moreover, Rydz-Smigly forgot the codes and means of communication in Warsaw. Therefore, already on September 7, the Polish military leadership could not lead the troops. We used a weak radio in Brest.

    Although the OSCE mission was not impartial, it could never confirm one point. She did not confirm the presence of Russian troops in Donbas. Now there will be full scope for fantasy. You can say anything. So the withdrawal of the OSCE mission can be seen as a prelude to a provocation.
    In 1967, Egypt demanded the withdrawal of UN forces from the Sinai. And the war began.

      The OSCE mission, though not impartial

      The OSCE is, to put it bluntly, a specific organization. In addition to purely observational and humanitarian tasks, its employees also perform other, often exclusively intelligence work. In favor of the NATO bloc, it goes without saying - and they were repeatedly caught on this, as they say, by the hand. That is, once again: European observers are not some harmless humanitarians, the OSCE is an extremely serious military-political organization. Intelligence type.
      In general, the OSCE, of course, takes things out. Here there is no doubt. Mission vehicles dangle like shuttles - they take out high-ranking and untrained employees, documentation and equipment that can discredit them. But they will not leave completely, because their organization, due to its specifics, cannot abandon one of its main functions - data collection. European observers will not stop doing this even at the most critical moment.

    whatever Russia plans, it is necessary to substantiate it to Western societies. Not politicians, but the general public. In the simplest language. To do this, now it is necessary to make a loud topic out of Kiev's refusal from the Minsk agreements. It is Kiev's refusal from Minsk that needs to be promoted to the maximum, so that the Western media would begin to guess and speculate - what is Russia thinking of doing as Kiev's response to the refusal of the agreements? Thus, the media will bring the very fact of the refusal to the news agenda. Maybe Russia is thinking of using the rejection of Minsk to invade?
    Then actions like the supply of weapons to Donbass will be justified in the eyes of the broad masses in the West. It is for their opinion now there is a struggle. Hasty decisions without a proper informational component will backfire on Russia.
