Moscow “respects” the results of the referendums in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions in Ukraine, reports the Russian wire service RIA Novosti, quoting  Kremlin press office. 

Moscow treats with respect the will of the people in Donetsk and Luhansk region and urges that the practical implementation of results to be carried out in a civilized manner, within the framework of a dialogue among representatives of the authorities in Kiev, Donetsk and Luhansk regions,” said the Kremlin press office. “In order to establish such dialogue, we welcome all attempts for mediation, including by the Organization For Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).”

The statement also says Moscow watched closely the referendums and was satisfied with the high voter turnout, in spite “the attempts to foil the voting” and “the use of heavy weapons against peaceful citizens on part of Kiev.”

....;-)....oh, yes, "those Russians" remain the threat №1 "to the World", i.e. to the USA' rulers. Still some experts (not so advanced as the overfilled with the stunning "news" "Flash" in the pan) dare to have a bit different opinion:

Drunken, toothless Russians and buffoon leaders Putin/Lavrov still fighting World War II. Stalin/Lenin voice their approval in hell.

John I like your post especially the bit 'which hate is directed against all people deserting the herd' this so reflects the hate from Kiev towards the protestors who want independance from the illegal Kiev government.

And the hatered the Kiev Facists have for the St. George Ribbon is horrible and calling the independance protestors cockroaches to de humanise them.

.... This is what accounts for the behaviour of all these wretches who tormented, tortured and killed other humans in the name of something. It is only through our inner fascism that you can explain how lots of journalists, writers and many others become intoxicated with proclaiming false statements and lies which they are very well aware of. This is what accounts for the fanatic hate flowing from the lines of fanaticised members of the bleating society, which hate is directed against all people deserting the herd and trying to find again their own face..... (Our inner fascisme, Georgi Markov, 1977)

As always, children, elderly people, mothers, fathers will pay the price for a regime that shows no compassion.
I dread the blood that will be shed, to further the ambitions of the "democratic forces" in the Slavic world.
Russian and Ukrainian people deserve better then an endless stream of despots.

Well done Moscow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The EU US and NATO are dangerous hypocrytes.

If the illegal Kiev Government was pro Russian and the protestors in the East and South were pro West then the West would be recognising the referendums and haliling them as democratic. They would even be arming the protestors.

Yesterday was a great day from Democracy, people voting to become independant from a coup installed government.
