EBB & TIDE OF WAR AND PEACE IN PHOTOS & DEEDS

WHO IS THE REAL HUMANITARIAN IN UKRAINE?

ACT OF WAR

In the dead of winter, the day after Christmas, Ukraine’s president Petro Poroshenko, a UKRAINE-CRISIS/Washington puppet, ordered that power, train and bus services to Crimea be cut off (see Wall Street Journal, Dec 26, 2014). Crimea voted back in March to secede from Ukraine and rejoin Russia (see PUTIN LASHES OUT AT WASHINGTON’S TREACHERY, WELCOMES CRIMEA BACK INTO RUSSIA’S FOLD, MARCH 19, 2014).

So is Poroshenko now punishing the innocent civilians for exercising their right to choose? If so, that’s an odd way of trying to win the people’s hearts to his cause.

ACT OF PEACE

Putin humanitarian Dec 2014The next day (today, Dec 27), Russia agreed to supply coal and electricity to Ukraine, which is struggling with a lack of raw fuel for power plants due to a separatist conflict in the industrial east, Russian officials said on Saturday (Business Insider, Dec 27).

Russia will supply coal and electricity to Kiev without advance payment as a goodwill gesture from President Vladimir Putin, his spokesman Dmitry Peskov told TASS news agency.

“Putin made a decision to start these supplies due to the critical situation with energy supplies and despite a lack of prepayment,” Peskov said.

ACT OF PEACE

Ukraine prisoner releaseThe same before (Dec 26, today), Ukrainian authorities and pro-Russia separatists exchanged hundreds of prisoners of war on Friday, a spokesman for President Petro Poroshenko said, part of a 12-point plan aimed at ending the pro-Russian uprising in the east of the country (see The Guardian, Dec 26).

The agreement to swap 150 Ukrainian servicemen for 222 rebels followed peace talks between envoys of Ukraine, Russia, the separatists and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) on Wednesday.

VICTIMS OF WAR

“Fleeing their country’s civil war, Ukrainian Jews head for Israel,” read the headline in Screen Shot 2014-12-27 at 9.18.25 AMDec 25 issue of the Washington Post.

The number of Ukrainian Jews arriving in Israel in 2014 is more than double that of the previous year, the story said. The Ukrainian government, which is facing an economic crisis, has little means to help those internally displaced by the war, now about 500,000, according to the United Nations. The Israeli government also offered the option to resettle in Israel.

Shades of Nazi Germany? Perhaps not yet. But the situation in Ukraine is grave enough to warrant action by humanitarian groups, such as the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews(IFCJ), which has spent more than $2 million on resettlement flights in the past year.

With an additional $8 million to $10 million in donations, the IFCJ in coordination with the Israeli government plans to sponsor additional flights of Ukrainian Jews to Israel, at least one a month for the next year.

“Christians supporting immigration of Jews to Israel is nothing new,” said Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, president of the IFCJ, whose donors are mainly U.S.-based Christians. “Now there are humanitarian reasons to support these people, too.”

WHO IS THE REAL HUMANITARIAN?

Poroshenko & Putin: Two P’s in a Pod? Apparently Not

So there you have it. Four stories in two days about the Ukrainian conflict paint starkly different pictures of the Ukrainian and Russian leaders. While the Washington puppet cut off the energy and transportation to Crimea in the dead of winter, the Russian president showed compassion for the innocent civilians in Ukraine, allowing the life-saving flow of energy into that country.

Which was a Christian thing to do especially at this time of the year when the world celebrates the birth of the man who died for peace and compassion among people.

Is that why the Putin story didn’t get much play in the warmongering western media?By contrast, the Poroshenko’s act of war on Crimean people did grab the headlines.

So what does that make Poroshenko and his masters in Washington by contrast?

Action speaks louder than words.

Here’s a hint… “US, CANADA, UKRAINE – REFUSE TO CONDEMN NAZISM/FASCISM IN UN VOTE” (NOVEMBER 25, 2014).
