What should Russia do if Kiev fulfills the Minsk agreements


Yesterday, February 15, there was a frank disappointment. Putin actually rejected the State Duma's appeal to recognize the DNR and LNR. According to the President, the priority in resolving the issue of Donbass remains the Minsk agreements, which Kiev has been refusing to comply with for the eighth year. However, in this whole situation, something else remains incomprehensible.


Namely, why is Russia seeking the implementation of "Minsk"? What benefits will this bring to Moscow, as well as to Donetsk and Luhansk? And is it a benefit?

Imagine that the Kiev authorities in some incredible way agreed to the implementation of "Minsk". The maximum form of self-government that the LDNR will provide will be an autonomous republic. That is, these entities will become state autonomies within a single Ukraine. This is the position of the Minsk agreements themselves - Ukraine remains a single state. Despite the status of autonomy (as it was, for example, with the Crimea), Donetsk and Lugansk will nevertheless be obliged to obey Kiev. Yes, they will be granted certain rights to self-government, they will be allowed to leave the Russian language as the “second state language”, but it will still be an “independent” Ukraine with all the consequences.

On the territory of Donbass, the existence of the People's Militia, which is not controlled by Kiev, will become impossible. They will have to be completely disarmed and disbanded. Moreover, according to the same "Minsk", the border of the unrecognized republics with Russia should be transferred to the Ukrainian security forces. And believe me, this border will subsequently be turned into a kind of Maginot Line.

As a result, a number of questions arise. What about more than 800 Russian citizens in the LPR and DPR? What to do with the ruble, which was put into circulation long ago instead of the Ukrainian hryvnia? And in general, economic, social and политическая the integration of Russia with the republics of Donbass is in full swing. Cancel everything and literally hand over your people? How can Moscow get out of the situation if Kiev does comply with the Minsk agreements?

Lots of questions that haven't been answered yet.

As a State Duma deputy, chairman of the Committee on Commonwealth of Independent States Leonid Kalashnikov correctly noted, it is still unclear whose actions “Minsk” fetters more - Ukraine or Russia. Recent events speak of the second option.

    Ukraine, when united with the LDNR, can always block financial flows from Kiev. So they strangled Crimea at one time and removed the Crimean president. So not everything is simple. And Russia will not help.

      The best thing is the federalization of Ukraine, and also that the Russian language, in addition to Ukrainian, should become the second state language in the country. We just need to adopt a new Constitution with amendments.

    I have a strong feeling that no one has read the text of the Minsk agreements
    Article

    On the territory of Donbass, the existence of the People's Militia, which is not controlled by Kiev, will become impossible. They will have to be completely disarmed and disbanded.

    In agreement

    - the creation of detachments of the people's militia according to the decision of local councils in order to maintain public order in certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions;

      At least you read the Minsk agreements, but, apparently, you didn’t understand anything. The People's Militia today is the renamed Armed Forces, which have tanks, artillery, etc. Detachments of "people's militia" from the Minsk agreements are precisely the police, plus the squad. In any case, no one will give them uncontrolled security forces.

        Do you know for sure or are you guessing? The People's Militia was established in 2014. So not "today", but "always". The Minsk agreements do not specify the composition and armament of the people's militia.
        There is another moment. Within the state, ALL power structures are subordinate to the government. In which there will be representatives of the LDNR.

          You're wrong. In the early years of the DPR, it was the Armed Forces. Only then they were renamed the People's Militia.

          The Minsk agreements do not specify the composition and armament of the people's militia. I am quoting your post above.: - creation of people's militia detachments by decision of local councils in order to maintain public order in certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions;

          That is, you believe that heavy armored vehicles, multiple launch rocket systems, cannon artillery are needed to "maintain public order", do I understand correctly?

          Within the state, ALL power structures are subordinate to the government. In which there will be representatives of the LDNR.

          Power posts will never be given to representatives of the LDNR. Get secondary jobs. Nevertheless, you acknowledge that there will be no uncontrolled security forces in the republics. This is the main thing. The Ukrainian army will be quartered on the territory of Donbass.

                Yes, armed forces were created in the DPR. But I write about Donbass in general.
                Anyway.
                1. Kiev will never comply with the Minsk agreements.
                2. With a federal structure of the state and its own militia (in addition to the militia, its own prosecutor's office and court and executive authorities are registered), it will not be possible to strangle the regions.
                3. The annexation of Donbass puts an end to the "hopes" of all Russians in Ukraine. Without the influence of Donbass on political life in Kiev, Ukraine will become completely Bandera.

                I consider the annexation of Donbass to Russia (and even the annexation of Novorossia only) a geopolitical defeat for Russia. I wrote about this for a long time and have not changed my opinion yet.

          Just look at the briefings of the same Basurin 2015-2018. There is no longer any militia. There are the Armed Forces of the Donetsk People's Republic, the Ministry of Defense of the DPR. They were also called in our Russian media until the moment when they were renamed the NM of the DPR. This is either 2018 or 2019, I don’t remember exactly.

            The briefings do not discuss the structure of the armed forces of the LDNR and the strategic plans for their future fate. In addition, the process of building state bodies is intensively developing in the LDNR. The issue of signs and names may be late. In the USSR / RF, the police also existed for a long time, although the functions were performed by purely police officers and were no longer formed in a militia way. And the appeal to journalists is generally not one way ..... These "literates" are capable of any mistakes in their comments.

    If the Minsk agreements were in favor of Ukraine, then they would probably have been fulfilled long ago. So there is something that does not allow it to be done by Ukraine. Perhaps a change in the constitution and the likelihood of similar demands for greater economic independence from other areas, which implies a redistribution of finances. Perhaps, due to a decent population, the redistribution of votes in elections to the highest authorities in favor of the opposition. It is possible that the exploits of the authorities in these territories will become known with the disclosure of facts throughout the country, well, something else is also possible.
    It is possible to envy that when these regions interact economically with Russia, they will develop faster and be more economically successful.

    I agree with the article. That's how things are.
    The process of turning Ukraine into an anti-human state continues.
    The agreements, calculated at the limit of compromise even at the time of signing, now will not be able to protect the inhabitants of the LPR and DPR.
    The letter of the law in a state that will hate them will not be able to guarantee them anything.
    It's as clear as God's day.
    The fact that we made a deal with conscience in relation to the LNR and the DNR resulted in the Minsk agreements. They already then were with "smell."
    Now the West, and our language, has already firmly bound us to this fundamentally vicious compromise. In order to get out of this situation, it must be honestly recognized.
    Since it just happened - the less we connect with these agreements in the present and future - the better

    Yesterday, February 15, there was a frank disappointment. Putin actually rejected the appeal of the State Duma on the recognition of the DPR and LPR

    Article without signature. Looks like an anonymous opinion? I think that Putin did not reject anything. The Duma issued its decision as a preparation for the final decision of the President. This allows almost with the first volleys of artillery preparation before the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the LDNR, without wasting time on the meeting of the State Duma and their formal actions that require hours, or even days (during weekends, for example), with one stroke of the pen in a couple of minutes to announce the decision of the State of the Russian Federation on the recognition of the LDNR and immediately begin practical work to provide military-technical assistance to its militia units. Considering the small territory of the LDNR, there may be minutes left for reflection and action for decisive actions. The author of the article does not understand this, apparently. And why? The main thing is to be understood in Kiev. And Kiev understood everything. Therefore, he sits evenly, although not calmly. He knows that preparations of documents on recognition, on cooperation, on the allocation of forces and means to strike with missiles and airborne forces, orders to strike with a list of priority targets are already on the tables of people who actually make decisions. And already Minsk-3 does not shine for them (Ze and his team). So Putin did not cave in to anyone. It complies with the formal requirements of international law. From this point of view, it is almost impossible to hook him. Even in Crimea, one does not hear about the real decisions of the courts, because everything was done as close as possible to the UN Charter and related legislation.

    The Minsk agreements did not work because the deadlines for the implementation of each item were not set after the expiration of which any sanctions would be imposed on those who did not comply. Again, it is not stipulated what to do in case of failure to fulfill the points of the agreement on time. This is how Ukraine got the opportunity to NEVER comply with the agreement.

    Moscow is seeking "implementation of Minsk" because, together with the Donbass and Lugansk, Ukraine will definitely not enter NATO. But Kiev did not start the ATO in 2014 for Donetsk and Luhansk to have the right to vote in Ukraine.

    To be completely honest, Putin does not need any DPR and LPR there. And he does not care about the decision of the Duma. For him, the DPR and LPR are just a tool for solving the problem of Ukraine's accession to NATO. In order to join NATO, you must not have military conflicts on your territory. That's why in the Donbass there is no peace, no war. The West knows perfectly well where to beat Putin and in what places. The West has not hit yet, but it is constantly warning about the consequences for Putin's entourage. Putin has a choice - the oligarchs or the security of the country. But, something tells me, the money and property of the oligarchs is closer to him. Putin's latest decisions are really disappointing for many people in the country. Even the exercises that were supposed to be officially held until February 20 inclusive, suddenly come to an abrupt end on February 15 and the troops are withdrawn. All this is done in a hurry and publicly. To which the United States condescendingly unsubscribed in the press. But, simultaneously with the withdrawal of Russian troops, the Americans bring their units to Romania and Slovakia (the government of this country transferred two airports to the USA).

    Oh, not there, guys, look. When the aggressor plans to attack, he tries to move his troops to the front line as much as possible. Ukraine was that last "obstacle". Nobody will accept them in NATO. Like "White Noise", NATO uses Ukraine to concentrate its troops, pull up the entire infrastructure along the entire perimeter of the border with Russia. I am more than sure that this year, a coup turmoil in Moscow is planned, followed by chaos and a cry from someone "from the branches" - send NATO to "save democracy." I really want to believe that our generals will not become like Iraqi ones. The main thing is that new "Minins and Pozharskys" would appear, otherwise Russia will not be left with options to stay alive.

    And all that was necessary was to accept the Donbass as part of the Russian Federation, like Crimea ... This would solve all issues and save many lives, but ... Putin prefers to listen to those who work for the interests of Ukraine ...
