Kiev fascists are murdering their own Southeastern citizens in cold blood. They’re doing it with full support and complicity from Washington.

Russia’s RIA Novosti news service quoted Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on Defense, Franz Klintsevich, saying:

Use of ballistic missiles against Lugansk civilians “suggests that the Ukrainian security forces have been granted carte blanche from the Americans.”

“They do not care what Russia says, what the international community or even Europe says today.”

“They got their carte blanche, and while it remains active they want to deal with the situation in Donetsk as quickly as possible.”

Using ballistic missiles against civilian neighborhoods shows how far Kiev and Washington will go to solidify hardline neo-Nazi-infested fascist rule.

Rule of law principles don’t matter. War without mercy ignores them. Ballistic missiles are powerful weapons.

On impact, “huge explosion(s)” follow. Maximum damage is inflicted. Rossiya-24 television said Kiev forces attacked Lugansk with Tochka-U ballistic missile systems.

They can carry nuclear and chemical weapons, as well as high explosives. Moscow’s protests about using this weapon against civilian neighborhoods are ignored.

Kiev has Washington’s support. It’s taking full advantage. Both countries are guilty of high crimes against peace.

It’s longstanding US practice. Its Ukrainian allies include a rogue’s gallery of societal misfits.

They’re militant fascist thugs. They’re illegitimate putschists. They’re xenophobic, hate-mongering, ultranationalist anti-Semites.

They mock democratic values. They rule by intimidation. They threaten the entire region. They risk direct confrontation with Russia.
