Heletey: the mining of “Stirol” in Horlivka may produce a catastrophe of continental scale



2014/07/28 • War in the Donbas

Defense Minister Valeriy Heletey addressed the representatives of the pro-Russian forces that “have retained one drop of common sense” in light of the possibility of an industrial disaster in Horlivka.

The according statement was published on his Facebook page.

“In light of the danger that emerged in the city of Horlivka, in particular at “Stirol” factory and around the ammonia pipe, we address everyone who has any influence on the terrorist, who are methodically creating a handcrafted catastrophe in the heart of Donbas,” says the text.

“As has become known earlier, a group of terrorists mined the aforementioned plant, thus creating a threat to the integrity of the ammonia pipe Tolyatti-Horlivka-Odesa. As such, in case this cynical plan is executed, the threat to all living things will appear not only on adjacent territories, but in the nearest regions as well, and has a guaranteed chance of spreading to Russian territory,” stated Heletey.

“In order to avoid a tragedy of continental scale, we are asking all forces that still have retained one drop of common sense and any influence on the situation: to immediately provide a corridor for the engineer and mining departments of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to enter the mined objects with the goal of diffusing them, and consecutively to avoid an industrial disaster,” he added.

      If Putin “lets” it happen? I Make no mistake about it –f Putin cannot create a “breakaway province” in the Donbass his troops will destroy as much of Ukraine as they can on the way back home to Russia. Ukraine will not have real peace until Putin is gone..

          I would like to believe that you right but I do not presume either Putin’s rationality or Europe’s resolve to “put him in restraints.” There are ominous and undeniable parallels between between Putin and Hitler in terms of their world views as well as the support and blind adulation of their citizens. We shall see, and soon –the widespread public support Putin expected to receive from “Novaryccians” never materialized and his masked army is facing all but certain defeat. I think Putin prefers to risk a world war rather than accept this.
