Nationalists prepare in advance, that the President “will deliver” and mobilize supporters. The famous “patriot”, even threatening to kill the President. But Zelensky hopes that at the upcoming summit, he will be able to raise the question, whose decision will strengthen its position in the country.
“Bring the capitulation — will Maidan”
To destabilize the situation, the nationalists began back in October. Then the process of negotiations on the Donbass moved from the dead point, Kiev signed the so-called formula Steinmeier — algorithm implementation of the Minsk agreements agreed in 2015, the leaders “channel four”: France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine.Outrage “Patriotic” to the public was the fact that the formula prescribes the holding of local elections before establishing Kiev’s control over the border of Donbass with Russia. The nationalists knew that the residents of Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics are unlikely to vote for Pro-Ukrainian politicians. Together with street activists resent and MPs from the two factions of the Verkhovna Rada, and members of some local councils. In one of the Western regions to create a “staff resistance to surrender.” In Kiev activists gathered on the so-called Steinmeier-independence.While some “patriots” walked the streets of the Ukrainian capital, others tried to block the disengagement in Donbass. The Ministry of internal Affairs headed by Arsen Avakov, revealing nothing. Zelensky had to go to the war zone and to persuade activists to leave the checkpoints. Then two nationalist threatened to kill him.A video message to the head of state recorded the Verkhovna Rada Deputy from the party of former President Poroshenko “European solidarity” Sophia Fedyna and volunteer Mary St. John’s Wort. “You … (a homosexual. — Approx. ed), you have the brains processed Russian propaganda, addressed to the Supreme commander of St. John’s Wort. Because you shovel was a shovel left. They (the nationalists. — Approx. ed.) will blow you up. You need to soak in the toilet. Putin is about you (said) here like you need to soak”. St. John’s wort explained that the attempt on Ukrainian President is ready to make the veterans: “the people There, shell-shocked in the war.”

She hinted that “comrade President” is not immortal.Previously, the government did not responded to the threat to the President. For example, Dmytro Yarosh, leader of the “Ukrainian volunteer army”, created on the basis of “Right sector”* and promised to hang Zelensky, if he would betray the country. But the leader of the “righties”* got away with it. In the case of attacks St John’s Wort and Pedini Kiev has decided to respond: the State Bureau of investigation opened a criminal case.Meanwhile, other “activists” moved from words to deeds. “Concerned citizens” joined in the “Movement of resistance to surrender,” and promised that will come to the building of the Office of the President December 8 — the day before the meeting, “Norman four” in Paris. “Bring the capitulation — will be a new Maidan”, — wrote one of the members of the movement, Andriy Levus.He was blamed for the coming riots in the state: “the Provocateur here is the only power that games with Moscow threatens our statehood and the Constitution”.The radical right make it clear that they intend to organize a coup on the model of the Euromaidan. “The Kremlin will try to push their scenario “reconciliation” and restart the Minsk process on the best for yourself and the self-proclaimed republics the conditions stated on the page movement in the social network. — Needs to remind the President of Zelensky the experience of his colleagues sample 2013. Because then, as today, the only defender of national interests became the Ukrainian people.”It is noteworthy that the same shell-shocked, according to the St. John’s Wort, the veterans were not in politics, and criminal showdowns. The first of December in Kiev was shot the car of the businessman and the Deputy of the Kiev regional Council Vyacheslav Sobolev, killed his three year old son. Performers were detained. According to press reports, they were militants “Aratta’s” battalion “of the Ukrainian volunteer army.” One of them at one time received the order from Poroshenko. Later, the unit commander confirmed that the detainees are former fighters.

As a result of the attack killed journalist Pavel Sheremet, the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of the previous convocation Ihor Mosiychuk was admitted said that all the high-profile murders in recent years were committed by the same “veterans”. “The elimination of the journalist Pavel Sheremet, according to media reports, might be involved in the volunteers and Butch, the Cougar. Murder Boronenkov (ex-Deputy of the state Duma. — Approx. ed.) are former fighters of “Donbass”. The death of Katie Gandzyuk in the hands of veterans, “the volunteer Ukrainian army”, lists the MP.ATO veterans with criminal records is, even in the party Zelensky. “In order to avoid punishment for the committed crime, the Deputy of the “Servant of the people” Andrew bogdanets, when he was to begin trial, enlisted in the battalion “Sich” and “served” little more than a month on the bases of this unit,” says Mosiychuk about associates of the President.
It is not surprising that under such circumstances “in the rear” Zelensky very carefully speaks about the upcoming meeting in Paris. Contrary to the commitments undertaken by Ukraine, he said that it would insist on a scenario contrary to the Minsk agreements. That is, in his opinion, Kiev first get control of the border, and then held local elections.Trying to avoid accusations of treason, the Ukrainian President has to emphasize that the political part of the Minsk agreement, Kiev will not perform. In an interview with foreign media Zelensky listed in descending order by three important problems: the exchange of detainees, the ceasefire and “withdrawal of illegal military formations.” Under the last term realizes Kiev militia fighters. It is clear that Donbass is means surrender without any guarantees of security. What neither Donetsk nor Lugansk can’t go.

However, the Ukrainian leader has made the reservation: he stressed that the issue of gas “by itself” and should not be associated with the Donbas. Although, he added Zelensky, transit fuel can be discussed in the format “Norman Quartet.”After all, Zelensky the issue of gas prices is just as important as the settlement in the Donbass. After sociologists have recorded a drop in ratings of the President, he instructed the government to reduce the tariffs for communal services in December. Without successful negotiations on the transit of gas it is impossible.According to Ukrainian political analyst Andrei Zolotarev, the nationalists ‘ threats to repeat the events of 2013 “will lead to technical imitation of the Maidan.” “Today, there are those factors, which then launched a series of events. Six years ago the scheming head of the presidential administration Serhiy Lyovochkin is superimposed on the discontent of the oligarchs. Support from outside is connected, when “process has gone”. Now there is no external support for the possible independence or signs of such betrayal in the ruling party. One resource Poroshenko is not enough. Street — formation of activists divided between the former President and Avakov. The latter also have dobrobiti and “volunteers”, but he sucked in it will not be”, — said the expert.However, according to him, large-scale protests of the nationalists will try to arrange: “They will act as in the joke: “Fight ordered? — No! — And we still paid!” Whatever he did or said or signed or — on the contrary — refused to sign Zelensky, activists accuse him of zrade (cheating) and try to swing the situation. Another thing is that the country is preparing to enter the Christmas holidays, and here already the principle of “war is war, and lunch schedule” all disperse to note”.”If the President agrees to implement the Minsk agreements, he will receive a severe internal crisis, which will result in the next seat on the Maidan. And the question of gas — is also a political issue. Zelensky and we need to show the reduction of tariffs, and the fact that Poroshenko lied to the country. Under the previous President of Ukraine “dependence” from Russia, buying gas from Austria and Slovakia, extracting it from the same Russian gas pipe. Such “get out the view of Moscow” brought billions into the pockets of affiliates. If Zelensky will be able to make the supply of fuel transparent — it will be an obvious plus to it,” sums up Zolotarev.

(who wished not to give his name) explained on the example of the threats to St. John’s Wort, why Zelensky behaves cautiously. “Who are the volunteers? These are women who went to look for his heroes amongst storytellers rhetoricians and other abled comrades on the front lines. Women are socially successful, but with such deviations in behavior. Seriously to them among the military, no one is. But the threat to kill the President — that no state will not joke around, caulked in the long term so, do not worry. If someone is “cotton” in the same spirit threatened Poroshenko found himself in the zone, except that never slaughtered any activists. So Zelensky rather simulates the persecution of those who promise to kill him. He controls neither the power structures nor the military. He even his party does not control. One just don’t follow his orders now. He therefore once again not to provoke anyone in the country”, — explains the interlocutor of the Agency.He agrees with Zolotarev that the conditions for fomenting “full” independence now, no. “People still have, they are important utilities. All have long understood that the activists are fighting for your personal interest, the financing myself,” expresses the opinion of a former soldier.Anton Lisitsyn
