Black Magic Curses Employed In Battle For The Ukraine

Black Magic Curses Employed In Battle For The Ukraine

Black magic is the latest weapon to be deployed in the battle between Russian separatists and nationalists in Ukraine.

According to a short video clip, Ukrainian loyalists have announced a curse has been put on the governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region, 51-year-old Igor Kolomoisky, as a legitimate "weapon of war."

The curse is called a "Piulsa diNura" and takes effect when the person who is targeted is told that he has been cursed.

Then, according to legend, their days are numbered.

Pulsa diNura is a Kabbalistic ceremony in which "angels of destruction" are invoked to block heavenly forgiveness of the subject’s sins, causing all the curses named in the Bible to befall them and ultimately resulting in their death.

The curse can only be made by a Jew and can only affect another Jew, which would apply to Igor Kolomoyskyi as he is Ukrainian-Israeli business oligarch of Jewish descent.

A multimillionaire, Kolomoyskyi is rated as the second or third richest person in Ukraine and the 377th richest person in the world by Forbes magazine. As the powerful local governor, he is seen as a figurehead of the breakaway independence movement.

A local explained how he came to realise he had been cursed, saying: "The news of the curse was broadcast over TV at a rally attended by Russians. He would be left in no doubt - he is a marked man."

The unnamed man said: "We hereby give notice that the curse has been placed and we await news of its effect."

What the governor who is a multimillionaire has to say about it is unknown: he is currently reportedly in Switzerland and has not made any comment.
