Russian "small war" at the enemy's expense

The attacks against the Donetsk airport, symbolizing Ukraine's resistance to Russia's intervention, don't stop for several months. As the defenders of the airport witness, periodically alongside the Russian heavy weapons assaults, some groups of strangely dressed and drugged people attack the airport in a way as "if they were immortal."

Russia uses locals to capture the airport. At the same time, this is a convenient way of cleansing the occupied territory from those unreliable known as "pro-Russian separatists," posing a problem for Moscow. 

So-called local 'separatists" started realizing that ­­they were blinded by Russian propaganda and began going out of control, transforming from Moscow's "useful idiots" to a potential threat. Civic dissidents to the new regime also forcibly conscripted into the "separatists" army, controlled by the Russian Special Forces and sacrificed during the attacks.

Stalin: “Our finger of revolution has been stuck into China”

From the article by: Vladimir Voronov
plakat33 212x300 Stalins “Little Green Men”After Crimea was annexed and the war in the Donbas unleashed, a lot has been said about the Kremlin’s so-called “hybrid war.” A war that, according to the theoreticians, combines elements of “regular” military actions with reconnaissance and subversive operations carried out by subdivisions combined with all-out information and cyber war. The same theoreticians and analysts claim that this is a completely new form of warfare.
However, there is nothing new in “hybrid warfare.” The strategy was practiced long before Putin’s “little green men” appeared in Crimea or in the Donbas. Although such designation as hybrid warfare did not exist, in secret documents, this kind of strategy was called “active reconnaissance.”  It was a partisan activity staged as an insurgency and later the people’s liberation war or a revolution of national independence.

 “It will be generally well understood that we are against war with China; the Red Army is merely guarding our borders and has no intention of crossing into Chinese territory, but if within Manchuria a revolution is found to be brewing, then everything will be fully explicable.” Josef Stalin  

On October 7, 1929, Stalin, who had come to Sochi for his well-deserved multi-month vacation, sent a message to his stand-in in Moscow, Molotov (then a member of the Politburo and the Secretary of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party (Bolshevik):  
China will be problematic for us. It seems to me it is time for us to switch to organizing a movement for revolution in Manchuria. Sending special operations groups into Manchuria to execute special missions intermittently is basically a good idea but that’s not what we need. Now is the time to escalate our strategy. We should organize two regiments of brigades consisting mainly of Chinese men, supply them with everything that is required (artillery, machine guns, etc.) place Chinese men at the head of the brigades and send them off to Manchuria with an assignment: to foment a rebellion within the Manchurian army, befriend and take under our wing reliable soldiers from those armies (dismissing the army itself after getting rid of the commanding officers), return to the division, occupy Harbin and, upon gaining power, pronounce Zhang Zuolin [son of Chairman Zhang Tzolin, ruler of Manchuria in the years 1928-1931 – author’s note] deposed, and finally establish revolutionary control (conduct pogroms on the landowners, win over the Christians, set up a command regime in cities, towns and villages, etc.).That is absolutely necessary. We can, and I think, should do it. This is not in violation of any “international laws.” Everyone will understand that we are against war with China, the Red Army is merely guarding our borders and has no intention of crossing over into Chinese territory but in the event that a revolution is brewing in Manchuria it will be seen as a natural progression considering what life was like under Zhang Zuolin’s regime. Think about it. This is important.” (J.V Stalin’s Letters to V.M. Molotov. 1925-1936. Collection of Documents. M., Rossiya Molodaya, 1995, pp. 167-168.)
