The Communist Party of the Russian Federation and Liberal Democratic Party of Russia both view the Malorossiya declaration more optimistically than the governing party and the Presidential administration.
Today’s Malorossiya declaration gives most international parties who are observing the conflict in Donbass, most of what they have wanted for years. On inspection, the proposals are the opposite of radical, they are entirely reasonable. They do not require the Russian Federation to absorb new territory and it would restore human rights in Ukraine/Malorossiya to pre-2014 levels or better.
Ben Stimpson is being punished for being a terrorist, but he is not a terrorist and nor are the people of Donbass. The fact that Stimpson never fired a shot in anger while a UK man who killed while fighting with the neo-Nazi Azov battalion is symptomatic of something worse than victor’s justice–it is an abuse of the justice system in the name of foreign policy.
