80+ Attackers involved in violent corporate raid against opposition politician’s business

http://www.pravda.com.ua/news/2013/06/18/6992435/

It happened in the village of Chausove in the Mykolaiv Oblast. The owner of the raided agriculture business is an opposition politician.

It’s crazy that there seems to have been a definite “order of battle.”

It says guards and farm workers repelled the first attack. Then the attackers brought out pistols and shot guns and split into two groups — one continued pressing the front gate, and the other went around the side.

The owner wrote that he called the police, but they ignored the incident.

He wrote on his Facebook page that there were 80 attacked with pistols and shotguns. He accuses Mykolaiv region governor Mykola Kruglov and general attorney of Ukraine Viktor Pshonka of orchestrating the raid.

It says the arrived in buses.

No on was killed, but many were wounded, five seriously.

I hate injustice. It’s hard for me not to imagine the defenses I supervised in Afghanistan, and how easily we would have slaughtered these attackers.

Just one machine gun, hell, one rifle could have stopped this attack. The hooligans are usually poor guys who work out a lot. They’re not invested in their crime. So simple. One marksman on the roof of the factory, and everything would be fine.

Of course, I had different rules in Afghanistan. I’m only thinking tactically. That’s a very narrow view. Here, such a defense would likely prompt a repose from the Ukrainian military on behalf of the corporate raider.

Where the hell is that “Zbroya” organization? They should be promoting gun ownership as a solution to this problem instead of masturbating to pictures of uniformed soldiers.

    I am on the road today, and on portable until Sunday.

    May I humbly suggest:

    Forward posting to U. S. Embasy with asking why
    all fuss about Syria when this garbage is happening
    in Ukraine.

    Letter to editor of New York times and other media.

    Addendum:

    In Germany they first came for the Communists
    and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
    Then they came for the trade unionists
    and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Catholics
    and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
    Then they came for me
    and by that time no one was left to speak up.

    I guess you grew up before the Lone Ranger, Zoro, et al?

    “Leadership rests not only upon ability, not only upon capacity;
    having the capacity to lead is not enough. The leader must be
    willing to use it. His leadership is then based on truth and
    character. There must be truth in the purpose and will power
    in the character.”

    Where to begin?

    Roman, almost since 1990, Zookraine has been a gangland, especially in Donbas. Just as in Rasha, the sovok mafiosi were unleashed, and they proceeded to kill, rape, mame, bomb, etc. Bombings were very frequent.

    The sovok mafiosi acquired enough money to order not just Bentleys and Mercedes/Maybachs, but armored Bentleys and Mercedes, with bulletproof windows. They all hired bodyguards.

    I am encouraged to see that the workers and people from the village stood up to these thugs.

    But, as is typical in bass ackwards Zookraine, it’s Chernobyl syndrome.

    The village idiots in Zookraine tolerated a corrupt system, on the basis that “it doesn’t concern me.”

    After the nuclear power plant blows up, after these thugs repeatedly attack and raid businesses, they wring their hands, cry “oh, woe is I,” and wonder what to do.

    But they sold their votes, they tolerated all this shit.

    It’s not the Zookrainian military that anyone needs to worry about – they are a joke.

    It’s the fact that the police stood by and did – nothing.

    it’s the fact that prior to all this, the people voted for sovok mafiosi.

    It’s the fact that prior to all this, the people tolerated a corrupt system.

    Tetyana Montayn, a lawyer who has appeared frequently in media in Zookraine over the years, said it best recently in an interview with Vitaly Portnikov on TVi:

    Звичайно, кожна крапля вважає себе абсолютно невинною в потоці.

    Every drop of water considers itself to be absolutely innocent in a flood.

    The thugs that came in are simply a standard technique, for sovoks and for sovok mafiosi – find people who are in desparate straits and willing to do anything (no morals, no scruples), and hire them to do dirty work.

    Lenin financed his hideous activities through stalin – a vicious bank robber.

    As far as machine guns, et., Roman – what kind of measured response is that?

    There is a far, far, nightmarish problem here – the system of government in Zookraine.

    It is a very deep problem and this incident is simply the latest boil that shows what a cesspool Zookraine is.

    It – Zookraine’s governmental system – is simply a criminal enterprise.

    it is Tamany Hall multiplied by several orders of magnitude.

    Zookrainians have been voting with their feet, leaving Zookraine by the millions, as a “solution” to the problem.

    That, of course, simply leaves the vipers in place.

    But in bass ackwards, upside down Zookraine, the people still haven’t figured out that tolerating vipers in place doesn’t solve anything.

      Thanks for the reply. I’ll only comment on one bit:

      “It’s the fact that the police stood by and did – nothing.”

      I would recommend that you and every other Ukrainian protest not for the police to protect you but for the right to defend yourself. Owning a gun may seem scary but it only scary in the way that walking is scary for a child accustomed to crawling.

      Where there are more privately owned guns, there is less crime. Period. This is a demonstrable fact.

      There’s a reason that Italian mafia movies always take place in the bit cities of the north east United States or California. These where the places where guns were illegal, where only criminals had guns. There was never any significant mafia activity in the south and midwest where normal people owned guns.

      I wish Ukraine’s Zbroya organization would make this case. Instead they seem busy worshiping anything military.

    Roman, I don’t disagree with you on your last point, and I didn’t mean to create any contrary impression.

    It’s just that there is such a deeply rooted corrupt fucked up system, and mere guns alone in the hands of citizenry will not solve that.

    You are right – the first thing that the sovoks did when they came to Ukraine to collectivize the farms is to do multiple – and I mean multiple – searches of farms, houses, property, etc., for guns.

    Then anything else that could be used as a weapon by citizens to defend themselves against the thug sovoks. Axes, knives, you name it.

    Then came stalin and the Holodomor, where armed guards went to the extent of letting people get out of starvation areas on trains to go get food.

    So I don’t disagree with you at all.

    Elmer,

    Question. You said,” Then came stalin and the
    Holodomor, where armed guards went to the extent
    of letting people get out of starvation areas on trains
    to go get food.”

    Are you talking about trains to Siberia? What were they
    supposed to eat in Siberia?

    Thank you for your posts, they offer good comments.

    Correction.

    That should have said “armed guards PREVENTED people from getting out of starvation areas on trains to go get food.”

    My inadvertent mistake, but it is important to correct it.
