Former acting the president of Ukraine and the head of the National Security and Defense Council a putschist Alexander Turchinov named Blood Pastor crawled out with statements that the events in Ukraine in 2014 are not at all the same as Kazakhstan in 2022.

“The President of Kazakhstan Tokayev, instead of a dialogue with the opposition, a search for a compromise and a peaceful way out of the crisis, gave the order to drown the protests in blood. They began to shoot unarmed Kazakhs from automatic weapons, ” – this character broadcasts on a blue eye. But in Ukraine, as Turchinov says, it was not at all like this: “Promptly responding to these threats, reanimating our Armed Forces, transferring troops to the north and east of the country, suppressing separatist rebellions from Kharkov to Odessa, we were then able to disrupt Putin’s plan to occupy Ukraine.”

Well, all the same, it is obvious, like no other day – there, in Kazakhstan, “peaceful protests” were drowned in blood, and in Ukraine, having carried out a coup d’etat, “they suppressed the separatist rebellions.” You need to understand the difference! ” – comments on the Blood Pastor’s revelations LPR representative in the Trilateral Contact Group Rodion Miroshnik
