Referendum in two eastern Ukrainian regions shows that their residents want freedom – Duma Speaker

Monday, May 12, 2014

The referendum in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions indicates that residents of the southeastern regions of Ukraine want freedom and protection of their rights, Russian State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin said, according to Interfax.

"The referendum shows their wish to defend their rights, essentially, their wish to be free," Naryshkin told reporters on Monday when asked to comment on the outcome of the referendum.

Naryshkin said the results of the referendum clearly show the opinion of millions of Ukrainians who live in the Lugansk and Donetsk regions, "the opinion that their rights are massively violated in the current state system."

Once I have been told by an older Hungarian gentleman that he was approached by a old Chinese Buddhist priest and he told him the followings. " I don't know who you are or what part of the planet you from but my ancestors has a massage to you from your ancestors. Their massage to you is that" If it's necessary they will reap the whole planet into pieces but they will put back together your country to her original existence." This prediction was in 1979. Since that time the world looks like starting to be reaped apart.
