I have never seen so much lying in my life! This is ridiculous. Vietnam was never anything like this. This is a propaganda blitz on the level of Nazi Germany.
Where to start?
War crimes cases against the Russian Army. Lie. I am very dubious about any of these cases because Putin intervened in the decision to go to war and gave specific instructions to the military not to harm Ukrainian civilians in any way, shape, or form. And for a few weeks there, they were even trying to avoid killing too many Ukrainian troops. I’ve never seen a modern war fought in such a clean way. The bottom line is that all modern armies fight very dirty, including the US military. A few of the Western armies fight cleaner but even they have problems. Massive war crimes are absolutely typical in 90% of modern wars on both sides.
I have never even heard of a commander in chief even giving such a strange order as to not harm enemy civilians in any way! It’s unheard of. But it shows where they are coming from. Putin sees Ukrainians as fellow Russians and says that Ukrainians and Russians are brothers. He also says we can’t treat them badly because “after this war, we will live with the Ukrainians.” That’s unheard of too. Orders to not harm enemy civilians? Huh? No one fights modern wars like this.
Russia is deliberately targeting civilians. Lie. The Pentagon itself said in Newsweek that Russia is not deliberately targeting civilians in this war, so everything you hear about deliberately harming civilians is a straight up lie. That said, accidents happen in wartime and there are such things as rogue soldiers and commanders.
In Mariupol, by all accounts, it is the Ukrainians who have committed massive human rights violations and in fact, they have done this all over the Donbass for eight years now.
Even all the way up in Kharkiv, the Ukrainian government has arrested, beaten, tortured and killed many people. Hundreds have been killed in that city alone in an SBU base in a basement of a building that was used as a torture chamber.
Torture chambers have also been uncovered at the airport in Mariupol. Many civilians were tortured and murdered there. There is also a rumored “pit” in the steel mill where the Nazis are holed up right now.
In a town to the north, another torture chamber has been uncovered and there were reports that many people were killed there too. These were all civilians suspected of supporting the separatists, but ~85-90% of the people in that region support the separatists, so you have to kill a lot of people.
This is the Ukrainian government and especially the Nazi battalions arresting, beating, harassing, stealing from, vandalizing the property of, torturing and murdering the enemy civilian base of the separatists. Also they have been just bombarding cities and towns with shelling. They don’t even aim for military targets. They just shoot at the cities. Thousands have died from these wanton attacks. Sometimes they just shoot people in their cars and on bikes for fun.
During this seige of Mariupol, we have endless reports about Ukrainian snipers shooting at civilians who dared to go out into the streets. There is video of a street strewn with bodies killed by Ukrainian snipers.
The Ukrainians shelled the maternity hospital to blame the Russians and there were casualties. They mined the theater and blew it up to blame the Russians. There were a many casualties. There is no way the Russians were involved in either of these acts.
Further, all the locals say that the Ukrainians did these to blame the Russians. People have been shot in the street for not being able to pronounce a Ukrainian word that Russian speakers find hard to pronounce and for speaking Russian on the streets of Mariupol. The media blames Russia for the destruction, but the locals blame the Ukrainians and say Russia is their savoir.
Mass graves in Mariupol. Lie. The media says there are three mass graves in Mariupol. A reporter went to a “mass grave” and found that it is just an ordinary graveyard where ordinary workers have been burying the dead from the war.
20,000 dead in Mariupol. Lie. The fake local mayor says 20,000 people were killed in the city. The real mayor says that 5,000 people were killed there, but note that locals say 85% of the destruction was by the Ukrainians. Every time the Ukrainians retreated from an area, they bombarded the buildings in the area. This makes sense if they see these as hostile civilians.
Locals were ordered at gunpoint to bury bodies in Mariupol, otherwise they would get no food. Lie. The locals deny this charge. They have no complaints about the Russians at all.
Russian soldiers shoot at convoys of civilians leaving Mariupol. Lie. On the contrary, locals all say that Ukrainians have been firing on these convoys because they are enemy civilians and because they want to use the civilians as human shields.
Russia would not let people leave Mariupol and would not let humanitarian convoys come in. Lie. On the contrary, the Russians have been allowing everyone to leave and they have brought in vast amounts of humanitarian aid. 99% of the people in Mariupol support Russia! Why would Russia and especially the separatists (the civilians are literally their own people) attack their own civilian loyalists? It makes no sense!
Right now, 120,000 people are “trapped” in Mariupol with no food, water, shelter, or medical care. Lie. They will all die if they cannot evacuate. Anyone who wants to can evacuate anytime they want to. The people staying want to be there. There is food, water, and medical care for everyone. Shelter is an issue but they are working on it. No one is trapped in Mariupol!
Russia is hindering the evacuation of these 120,000 along with 1,000 civilians in the steel mill. Lie. First of all, there are ~200 civilians in the steel mill and they can leave anytime they want to. Russia opens humanitarian corridors every day but no one uses them. The people may not want to leave as they may be the wives and children of the fighters or the fighters may be forcing them to stay to use them as shields.
There are 2,000 Ukrainian soldiers in the mill. 500 are wounded. They will die soon if they are not let out. Lie. They can leave anytime they want to. Problem is that they will have to surrender and they will be taken as POW’s by the Russians. I guess they don’t want to do that.
The Mariupol humanitarian crisis is horrendous and something must be done so the UN and NATO is getting involved! Lie. Supposedly they just want to get the civilians out but (((Zelensky))) the (((biggest liar in the universe))), actually has other plans that he is involving the UN and NATO in. He doesn’t just want those civilians out. He wants those wounded to be given an escape corridor too! Sorry! Russia says all the wounded have to surrender and be taken POW. This is all a big lying scam to get his wounded soldiers out!
Every time (((Zelensky))) opens his (((mouth))), he’s (((lying))). He’s a lying, despicable, little fascist turd and he is a Nazi in a sense.
Understand that Banderist Nazism is mostly anti-Russians. Remember how Hitler felt about Jews? Well, that’s how Banderists feel about Russians. It’s “exterminate the Russians.” This is the political philosophy of Ukrainian society including its ruling elite. There are a number of Jews in the Nazi battalions with swastika tattoos. There is a photo of a Jewish Ukrainian battalion fighter with a yarmulke on preying at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. On his upper back you can see a swastika tattoo. Welcome to Ukraine! Where Jews and Nazis work hand in hand!s
Russia keeps foiling the humanitarian corridors in Mariupol. Lie. The Ukrainians will set one up and say, “Everyone go to this place and a bus will come take you to Ukrainian territory.” The Russians say ok. The people come to the spot at the time and the Ukrainians shell the spot where the people are gathered! After they do this, they blame the Russians and say the Russians attacked a gathering place for evacuees. It is in Russia’s advantage to have as few civilians as possible in any of these cities. It is in the Ukrainians to keep the civilians there to use them as shields to hide behind.
In Volnovakha, Ukrainians shelled the whole village when they retreated. Some stayed behind as snipers and shot civilians walking the streets. For a long time they were killing civilians who tried to leave the city by humanitarian corridors. Everyone in Volnovakha says the Russian soldiers were very kind to them. All of the women in Mariupol are shocked of the allegations of Russian soldiers raping women in places they occupied. Why didn’t Russia commit any war crimes like rape, murder, execution, torture, looting, etc. in the Donbass cities it occupied? Huh?
And old lady and a 14 year old girl were raped by Russian soldiers in a village near Nikolaev. Lie. Reporters went to this city and they said they loved the Russians. They laughed when told about the rapes and said they never happened.
The people in Kerson and surrounding areas hate the Russians and live under the terror of Russian occupation. Lie. Yes, there are some people holding demonstrations sometimes telling the Russians to leave. There are pro-Ukrainians in the south. We went into the reasons for this earlier.
Yes, there is an armed underground in Kerson and surrounding area. Neither has a lot of support. Incidentally, a blogger who murdered by these guerrillas simply for reporting fairly on life under occupation. Russians provided food, water, medical care, you name it, in this area. All of the public works are working again and they are setting up local police forces and militias. They have appointed mayors and city officials in a lot of places and fired the people who won’t go along. The Russians don’t do much about these demonstrations. A few injuries here or there.
The main thing is that most people in the Kerson region are absolutely with Russia. For a long time, the main thing you heard on the street was, “Please don’t leave.” People say this because they think if the Russians leave, the Ukrainians will come back in and kill everyone who cooperated with the Russians by labeling them collaborators and saboteurs. This is what they did in Bucha and other places.
A mayor was murdered in Lugansk for being pro-Russian. The Ukrainians murdered their very own top government official on the negotiating team with Russia for being open to peace with Russia. The SBU shot him in the head in broad daylight. These are the people we are supporting! They’re a bunch of Nazis!
Anyway, the tone of the people in region has now changed and instead of “please don’t leave,” it is now, “How do I get a Russian passport?” As you can see, the vast majority here are pro-Russian.
Russia bombed Nikolaev and killed some kids. Lie. Russia fired some cruise missiles outside of town. The Ukrainians tried to intercept one with anti-aircraft fire and one of the shells hit a building, causing casualties.
Russia shelled a railway station at Kramatorsk where civilians were lining up to leave. Lie. 85-90% of the people in that town support Russia. Why would Russia kill their own supporters? Russia wants them to leave. It is the Ukrainians who want them to stay to use them as shields. Everyone in that town says that the Ukrainians fired that rocket at the train station in order to blame the Russians.
The missile was a Toschka missile, but only Ukraine uses those. Russia phased them out two years ago and destroyed their stock. They don’t have or use this weapon. Further, the serial number on the missile proved that it was part of a stock of missiles that were in Ukrainian hands. We can tell this by matching it up with other Toschka missiles they have fired from the same batch.
Also the trajectory of the missile shows that it could only have been fired from the southwest, which was Ukrainian territory. Kramatorsk authorities hate the locals for supporting the separatists. They often stop cars at gunpoint and steal them from locals just because they can. Ukraine regards these civilians as hostile, so it makes sense that they would target them.
Some Ukrainian soldiers tried to surrender in Donetsk and instead were shot by Russian soldiers. Unknown. That’s the first we have heard of this. In fact, all of the Ukrainian POW’s say they are being treated very well. In fact, they are shocked at how well they are being treated. They were told that Russians were killing everyone who surrendered so a lot are crying and pissing their pants when they surrender, begging not to be killed. They are completely stunned when they are not killed or even tortured or beaten but instead are treated very well.
If the Russians killed soldiers trying to surrender, that would be very bad, but it would be the first case like this. We have endless reports of Ukrainians killing, beating, torturing, and mutilating Russian POW’s. Many Ukrainian units say that they never take any POW’s. They simply shoot all of them.
A Ukrainian soldier testified that his unit rarely took prisoners and simply shot most of them. A Ukrainian soldier said his unit was ordered to shoot civilians that had been captured and had their hands tied behind their backs. They refused to and were thrown in a pit. They escaped and managed to surrender. There are videos of Ukrainian forces murdering Russian POW’s. The head of the Ukrainian medical service said he issued an order to castrate all Russian POW’s.
This guy is a physician! He’s on video saying that too. We have photographs of Russian POW’s who have had a finger cut off. POW’s returned to the separatists were often missing fingers and sometimes limbs and at times were castrated. This has been going on for eight years now. That doesn’t count the many separatists who were simply executed outright.
We now have reports from hospitals right over the border in Russia that POW’s are coming back missing fingers and castrated. However, they are under strict orders not to report this for some weird reason. There are photos of these POW’s after they have been mutilated being passed around by wives and family of these men. I have not seen one yet. Actually there were reports like this from the start of the war about POW’s being returned missing limbs or castrated.
The Zelensky administration has openly stated that they refuse to follow the Geneva Conventions for treatment of POW’s, and they refuse to follow any of the Geneva Conventions about the laws of war. They stated this in communications to the British government. I’m not surprised.
A missile was fired at Kherson overnight. It is not known who shot the missile. Lie. The missile was shot by Ukraine. They were aiming at the administration building.
Tens of thousands of Ukrainians have been kidnapped and taken to Russia. They were taken against their will. Lie. These people are refugees and they either fled to or asked to be taken to Russia. There they have been put it filtration camps which are like concentration camps. Lie. Some have been taken far east all the way to Siberia. Lie. People have been taken all over Russia, some all the way to Siberia. That is because they are staying with relatives!
Many orphans have been kidnapped and taken to separatist areas or Russia. Lie. Their parents were killed in the war. What to do with the kids? They’re all from separatist areas, so they were placed in separatist zones or in Russia. Where else are they going to put them? Russian families are caring for them.
A child was kidnapped and taken to Russia. He asked to go back to Ukraine to be reunited with his father. True. This was a mix-up. When he asked to go back to Ukraine, this request was granted.
Russians in Kherson are now preventing Ukrainians from fleeing north to Ukrainian held territory. True. But this might not be unusual in an active war zone.
A fake referendum is being planned for Kherson to vote to see if they want to be independent. Lie. The vote will apparently be free and fair. Most people in the region want to go independent. The pro-Ukrainians are a minority.
Russian artillery hit Kharkiv, causing casualties. Afterwards there was a double tap strike to hit the first responders. Probable lie. From our sources in Kharkiv, people in the city say that most if not all of the strikes in the city (at least 90%) are Ukrainian forces shelling their own city!
No one quite knows why they are doing this. Apparently it is mostly being done to blame the Russians. A lot of this is being done by the nationalist battalions. This has been going on in Kharkiv for some time now. Many people in Kharkiv support Russia, so presumably the Ukrainians feel that they are shooting at hostile civilians. Also, Russia doesn’t do double tap strikes.
Russian soldiers are engaging in mass looting in the areas they occupy. Probable lie. We are not getting any reports of this out of the Donbass. Reports are coming from north of Kiev. Uncertain. Looting is a violation of Russian military law and the punishment is pretty serious. No commander would give his troops a command that allowed them to loot an area. For one, he would be defying Putin himself. Also no officer would give his soldiers a command that allowed them to rape and murder Ukrainian civilians.
If he gave any of these orders, Russian soldiers have stated that he would be arrested by his own troops! That’s how professional the army is. Also rape and especially deliberate murder of civilians is against Russian law and I understand that the penalties for this are serious, especially in this war where Putin himself has given an order not to harm civilians.
Instead, the best analysis of looting reports is coming from Ukrainian civilians who say that gangs of ordinary citizens and in particular the terror battalions are engaging in mass looting. And elements of the Ukrainian army are also doing a lot of looting. No one quite knows why they are doing this.
Russian soldiers were photographed carrying washing machines out of a civilian house as they looted it. Lie. Those are Ukrainian soldiers. Why they are looting, I have no idea.
Russian soldiers are engaging in mass looting, and they are sending the stuff in packages to Belarus and Russia where their relatives pick them up. Lie. Apparently there is no way to do this if you are in the Russian army. It’s simply not possible.
An investigation found that most (~85%?) of the people killed in Bucha were killed by Russian artillery. Lie. Small darts called flechettes were found in their bodies. While this nasty weapon is not illegal, its use in populated areas is prohibited, as with phosphorus. The problem here is that Russians don’t use shells with flechettes.
They consider it to be a nasty weapon that should be illegal and they don’t want to use it for that reason. Bucha was occupied by Russians the whole time. All of the artillery that fell on the city was Ukrainian. Russians would not shoot artillery at their own city that they themselves control! Why would they do that? So most of those killed in Bucha were killed by Ukrainian artillery.
Mass graves were found in Bucha containing up to 400 bodies. Lie. No one knows how many bodies are in those graves. The best analysis is that there may be 90 bodies there. 76 of those bodies can be seen being buried in a video from Bucha dated March 12. In the video, the people burying the bodies say that they were local terror battalion forces. Apparently they put up a fight at first but were quickly overwhelmed by the Russians. There is no good evidence that any of those people were killed by Russia!
People in Bucha are terrified of Russia coming back and welcome the Ukrainians. Lie. In fact, we are now in possession of a letter from a Bucha native who fled to Kiev early in the war. He had been in touch with people in town the whole time. The people in town told him that when the Russians left, the Ukrainian army came in and cleaned out whole apartment buildings. The next day, several men were found murdered. They were locksmiths, etc. that the army had hired to break into the apartments and steal stuff. They were murdered to cover up witnesses.
Also Ukrainian forces raided a small village and looted about everything that could not be tied down. A local came out and told them to stop and the Ukrainians shot him dead and left him in his yard! This comes straight from people in Bucha!
There are now 4-5,000 people in Bucha and they are all terrified of the Ukrainian soldiers. They are very deferential in a “don’t kill me, please” way. This man says that the remaining people in Bucha all think that the Ukrainian armed forces killed those people who were murdered in that town.
The argument is that the Ukrainians killed people who were “saboteurs” and “collaborators.” That ended up meaning everyone who wore a white armband to show that they were friendly to the Russians. They also shot people who took food supplies from Russians. And in particular, they killed people who helped organize the relief efforts in the cities.
The remaining residents of Bucha are all terrified of the Ukrainian armed groups, and the letter writer said at the moment, everyone in the city wants Russia to come back and control the town again because things were much safer in Bucha when the Russians were there and at least the Russians did not murder people or steal stuff when they controlled the town.
In addition, a large number of people in Kharkiv aged 25-50 who were soft supporters of the government have now gone over to the side of Russia. After Bucha, most of this group thinks that it was the Ukrainians who executed those people, not the Russians. These people now support Russia and they think it would be better to be ruled by Russia than to be ruled by Ukrainian murderers.
A very large number of women report being raped in the towns north of Kiev. Lie. First of all, the Kiev police say that they can only verify one rape in the Kiev region since the start of the war. That’s out of 100 reported rapes. The rapes are coming from Ukrainian organizations that are themselves suspect. The argument is that 100 women got raped but only one reported it because the rape victims “are afraid to talk to the cops.” Get out of her. That doesn’t pass the smell test.
As we noted above, for a Russian soldier to rape a Ukrainian woman, especially in this war where Putin has ordered civilians to be treated decently, carries some very serious penalties. Any commander allowing his forces to do that would probably be arrested by his own troops.
Given the fact that from Putin to the commanders, no one is sanctioning raping Ukrainian women and all are disallowing it, one wonders how so much of this is going around. Are these rogue soldiers doing all this raping? A Russian journalist spent the first month of the war in the towns around Kiev.
A Ukrainian journalist who is not pro-Russia also spent that period in those towns. Both reported that they never saw or heard of any civilians being deliberately and seriously harmed by Russian soldiers in any of these towns. Somehow these stories only start up after the Russians leave.
While they are there, we never hear a peep. After they leave there is a flood of allegations. This doesn’t pass the smell test. If this had been happening while the Russians were there, stories would have been leaking out. The fact that the stories only show up after they leave implies that they are concocted after the Russians depart.
None of these rape cases has been corroborated. We do not have names, dates, or details of any raped women. We do not have any names, dates, and details of the alleged Russian rapists. Sure there could have been rogue Russian soldiers, but we would have heard about it while they were occupying the towns. People talk. Basically none of these war crime stories of Kiev can be confirmed at the moment.
A photo of several teenage girl minors who were raped by Russian soldiers has been presented to the media. A few of the girls became pregnant. After a single rape? Wait a minute. Lie. The photo is here. The six women have all been captured by the Russians.
It turns out that they are all Ukrainian spies for the Psychological Operations Unit of the Ukrainian military. As you can see, they are hardly teenagers anymore, and they’re so unattractive they’re hardly worth raping anyway, in my humble opinion. And furthermore, none of them show signs of pregnancy. So we can see that the rapes story is starting to fall apart already with good explanations for what is really going on.
Russia is “stealing Ukrainian grain” by shipping wheat grown in Kherson to Russia. Lie. Actually this is not true at all. This is from an article that appeared on a Russian website. However, the article had been placed there by Ukrainian hackers.
Ukraine has recaptured many towns in the South and near Kharkiv. Lie. In general, those towns were never occupied by Russia in the first place. They were in the twilight zone and not occupied by either force.
Russia has suffered from 10,000 (US) to 15,000 (UK) to God knows how many (Ukraine) deaths in the war. Lie. I would estimate losses at 5,000 men but that could be high.
Putin and his aides are threatening nuclear war. Lie. This is not true. They are just warning that this war could get out of control real fast, which is true.
There is a danger of Russia using nuclear weapons or tactical nuclear weapons. Lie. Russia doesn’t use tactical nuclear weapons. One two countries, the most evil on Earth, use those monstrous weapons: the US and Israel.
There is a danger of Russia using chemical weapons. Lie. Russia doesn’t have any chemical weapons. They destroyed all of their stores in 2017. On the contrary, I believe the US still retains them.
There is a danger of Russia using biological weapons. Lie. Russia doesn’t have any biological weapons and they don’t use them. It’s the US that makes bioweapons at its 330 bioweapons labs around the world, including 28 in Ukraine.
Russia and China are making up a conspiracy theory about the US researching and making bioweapons. Lie. I studied this a long time and it does appear that the US indeed studies and makes bioweapons in these labs. Whether they have deployed any recently is another matter and this to me in uncertain.
Lyme disease was created from a US bioweapon. True. This appears to be the case. The previous versions were not very virulent. The US was studying Lyme at one of its bioweapons labs on the East Coast and one of them got loose and went wild on an island. They thought they could contain it on an island but it somehow made it off the island.
The US has never used bioweapons in wartime. Lie. The US indeed used bioweapons in the first year of the Korean War. There were some casualties, including up to 800 US soldiers killed by one that got away somehow. They were dropped in cages with birds, rodents, and insects.
Areas where they were dropped soon experienced mini-epidemics, but the casualties were not severe. The next year the program was cancelled but the US kept flying missions and dropping these items over North Korea, but now these creatures had no bioweapons in them. It was all a fake-out to scare the North Koreans after they had dropped real bioweapons the year before.
The US has never used bioweapons in peacetime. Lie. The US caused a swine flu epidemic in Cuba’s pig herd in the 1970’s, wiping it out. This is documented.
Russia is running out of weapons and men and will run out in days/weeks/a month. Lie. They’ve been saying this for some time and all of the deadlines have passed. it’s not true.
Russian forces suffer from poor command and control, poor battlefield tactics, and low morale. Lie. Apparently none of these are true.
Russian troops are bombing hospitals, kindergartens, and schools. Lie. All of these facilities are vacant and the Ukrainian army has made a happen of using these empty facilities to house weapons and troops.
Russia fired cluster bomb artillery at Kharkiv. Lie. Only Ukraine uses cluster bombs.
Russia uses cluster bombs on Ukrainian civilians. Lie. Russia doesn’t use these weapons. They think they are nasty and evil and they don’t wish to use them as a result. On the other hand, Ukraine has used cluster bombs many times in this war.
Russia is using white phosphorus in this war, a banned weapon. Lie. It’s only banned in populated areas. Russia doesn’t use it at all, as they think it’s an evil weapon that they want no part of. All of the white phosphorus claims have been Russian illumination flares.
The town of Borodianka near Kiev was destroyed by Russian artillery and in particular, a huge apartment building had the middle of it blown out by Russian shelling. Lie. This town was occupied by Russia the whole time, hence all of the artillery deaths were due to Ukrainian artillery. All of the massive destruction in the town is due to the same thing. The apartment building with the middle of it blown down was hit by Ukrainian MLRS artillery. Few if any deaths in this town can be attributed to Russia; in fact, I would say none.
Russia has supply line problems. Lie. Apparently not true.
Russian forces are making “slow and uneven” progress in fierce fighting in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, but are still struggling to overcome the same supply line problems that hampered their initial offensive, a Pentagon official said. https://t.co/9cp0FpQPwR
— The New York Times (@nytimes) April 29, 2022
Russia is making slow, uneven, and incremental progress in Donbass and has gained very little ground. Lie. On the contrary in the last couple of weeks, Russian troops have gained quite a bit of territory, especially around Izyum. And they just took control of all of Kherson state.
The entire world is against Russia and is sanctioning them. Russia is being cancelled from the world. Lie. 12% of the world’s population is sanctioning or cancelling Russia. That includes the Anglosphere, most of Europe, and occupied Japan and South Korea. 88% of the world is not sanctioning or cancelling Russia. That’s almost the entire world.
Russia has conducted a number of false flag operations in Transdniestria in order to expand the conflict to a new country, Moldavia. Lie. The last thing Russia needs is an expanded conflict. That’s what Ukraine and NATO want. The bigger the conflict the more resources Russia has to expend to stop it. Also there is a huge supply depot of 20,000 tons of ammunition in this area.
It is guarded by 1,500 Russian peacekeepers and another 5,000 soldiers of the Transdniestrian Army. I’m not sure if that ammo is any good anymore, but top Ukrainians have been saying that they want to seize that ammo dump and if that ammo is any good, they could fight for years with it.
In fact, all of the attacks with RPG’s, automatic weapons, drones, and mortars have been done by Ukraine in an effort to expand the conflict. Every time Ukraine does one of these attacks, they and NATO say “Russia just did another false flag.” Also one of the drone attacks on an airport used NATO ammunition.

Ukraine, NATO and the US all insist that Ukraine is winning the war. Lie. They also say that Ukraine can win this war. That’s quite dubious if not an actual falsehood. There’s no way Ukraine can win this war. In the first place, they are getting destroyed on the battlefield and they are running out of bodies.

Russia is making slow progress because of fierce Ukrainian resistance and because Russia is losing the war. Lie. Russia is going very slowly in part because they are trying to save civilian lives, especially in the Donbass and also because they are trying to take as few casualties as possible. When you use a lot of men and try to move very fast, you can take a lot of casualties. In the early part of the war, Russia used long convoys of forces but these were vulnerable to attack. They don’t do that anymore and now they use slow, nimble convoys.
According to Canada, Russia is committing genocide in Ukraine. Lie. That’s just flat out false. They’ve killed a lot of soldiers but only a few civilians. There is no effort to wipe out the Ukrainians and in fact, a lot of infrastructure has been preserved because as Putin says, “After the war, we will live with the Ukrainians.” No one says that when they are in the midst of genociding another people. Forget it.
Russia is isolated in the world and alone due to condemnation, sanctions, and cancelling. Lie. How is it that when 12% of the world is against you and 88% of the world is not, that country is
“isolated in the world” and in danger of being all alone with no friends. That’s absurd.
That the US managed to gather more than 40 nations to discuss arms, and other, support for Ukraine was also a major achievement. With continued Russian losses the number of countries joining the western alliance is likely to grow even more. Russia's isolation will increase.

Poland is no longer buying Russian oil because the idiots refused to pay for it in rubles. Lie. In fact, Poland is continuing to buy Russian oil but they are buying it from Germany! LOL, idiots.
Bulgaria hates Russia and has refused to buys Russian oil and gas with rubles, so Russia cut them off. Partly false. Bulgaria is completely divided. The population is very pro-Russian due to links via the languages, the history of the Slavs, and the Orthodox religion. Half of the government, the Socialists, are pro-Russia and the other half is anti-Russia. But the government doesn’t represent the people anyway.
Europeans support their countries flooding Ukraine with weapons in a doomed war. Lie, in part. In France for instance, 65% of the population opposes giving weapons to Ukraine. Of course, the (((Rothschild’s man))), (((Macron))), is sending a lot of weapons to Ukraine. But he’s going against his people.
Russia is making nuclear threats if Finland and Sweden join NATO. Lie. The Baltic Sea is a nuclear weapons-free zone, which means no submarines with nuclear weapons. Russia says it will end that policy and begin putting nuclear armed submarines in the Sea if they join NATO. This is nothing as there are nuclear-armed submarines, many of them American, cruising the world’s seas all the time.
Russia committed the Holodomor, when they stole all of Ukraine’s food, deliberately murdering 10-15 million Ukrainians, or 8 million, or however many million. Lie. First of all, this was the Soviet Union and a country run by Communists. That country no longer exists. In its place we have Russia and many new countries, including Ukraine. Russia is a capitalist country and it is not run by Communists, certainly not the same Communists who ran the USSR.
Saying Russia = the USSR is ridiculous and absurd, but that’s what everyone in the West is doing. Also there was no terror famine. There was a harvest collapse for a variety of reasons, but it was not intentional. Most people died in Eastern Ukraine, which was pro-USSR. There were also many deaths in the pro-Stalin Volga region. Hundreds of thousands died in Poland. Did Stalin steal their food and kill them too? Many died in Kazakhstan. Was Stalin trying to murder them? 1 million died in Siberia. Did Stalin hate Siberians. The Holodomor myth is nothing but garbage.

Russia is taking massive losses in the East while making only tiny progress. Lie. Losses have been acceptable, maybe 1/4 of Ukrainian losses. It is Ukraine that is getting massacred by the latest Russian offensive. They have probably lost ~25,000 men.
Russia is sending huge numbers of conscripts to the war zone as it is running out of soldiers. Lie. There were some conscripts present in the early stage of the war, but they were quickly withdrawn when the Russian media got hold of the information.
There is mass opposition in Belarus to the war in Ukraine. Lie. On the contrary, the people strongly support it. Lukashenko won with 80% last election. He usually gets 75-80% in most elections. The figure was corroborated by independent exit polls. The Ukrainian opposition is unpopular.
They only get 20% of the vote and the only support they have is among the young “rich kids” in the capital who want to be “rich like Europeans.” The older people and the rural areas are all with Lukashenko. The opposition’s threats to shut down most state industry is not going over well either because half the country will be out of a job. In addition, as in Ukraine, the opposition is extremely pro-Nazi. All of the heroes of Belarussian nationalism are Nazis from World War 2, once again mirroring Ukraine.
There are only a tiny number of Nazis in Ukraine. Lie. The far right parties only get 1-2% in elections. Yes, but they got 35% in West Ukraine in a recent election when they got 12%, and in Lviv, they got 50%. However, the Ukrainian military consists of 40% members of the national battalions. The nationalist battalions are all Nazis or fascists, 100% of them. So 40% of the Ukrainian military are Nazis or fascists.
And a certain number of the rank and file soldiers are too. However, I think a lot of the more recent converts can be denazified, and maybe even some of the hardcores can be terrorized into giving up the ideology. To be honest though? How long do I think it would take to denazify Ukraine? I would estimate 40-60 years. Believe it or not, that’s about how long it took Germany. I’m not kidding.
We have already discussed how Ukrainian nationalism is pretty much fascism or Nazism anyway, and there doesn’t seem to be any possibility of a sane or non-fascist, non-Nazi Ukrainian nationalism. However, there was such a thing in the USSR, especially under Lenin in the first ten years of the USSR. Later Stalin came in and it was not so good after that.
The USSR and later Russia, via the legacy of the former, destroyed the Ukrainian language in Ukraine. It will take a long time to build it back up. Lie. First of all, Ukrainian is not much spoken in the East. There they speak Russian. They speak an excellent and very pure, if maybe archaic, form of Russian from 200 years ago under Catherine the Great in Crimea, Odessa, and the rest of the south. These were the malarial swamps that were drained and settled with Russian settlers and shipyard workers starting in 1812 with the conquest of the Tatars and the acquisition of Crimea.
I’m not sure what is spoken in the far West, but the people in the Donbass say it is hard to understand them. It’s for all intents and purposes a separate language. It’s probably a heavily Polonized form of Ukrainian.
The purest real Ukrainian is spoken in the center of Ukraine from Dnepropetrovsk north to Kiev. The Russian spoken in the Donbass and north to Kharkiv may be somewhat Ukrainized. However, many Ukrainians can at least understand Russian and most but not all can speak it, even if they prefer Ukrainian.
Since 2014, there has been a purist linguistic project aimed at removing Russianisms from the Ukrainian language and replacing them with “pure” Ukrainian forms, mostly Polish words. I’m not sure how well it is working. However, Ukrainian is now widely spoken across the whole country other than the east and the south. And Ukrainian reigns in printed literature. A Russian speaker who lived in Kiev said that she found it hard to buy Russian-language books there, especially novels, as most such were in Ukrainian.
Russians are mass conscripting military aged men in Melitopol. Uncertain. Probable lie. This makes no sense. Russia is only using half of its contract army and none of its reserves. And that’s not counting the vast army of conscripts it recruits every year. So they have to dragoon people off the streets of Melitopol. Not buying it!
⚡️Mayor: Russian forces begin mass abduction of people in occupied Melitopol.
According to Ivan Fedorov, two weeks ago, Russian occupiers began illegally conscripting men of military age. But recently, Russians have started to kidnap them from checkpoints en masse, he said.

Russians have no support from the locals in Kherson, so they cannot hold their referendum. Lie. I’m not sure what the actual figures are, but I think a good 75-80% of the population in this region is for Russia. The rest are for Ukraine, but as you can see, they are a minority.
⚡️ Kherson official: Russia lacks people's support for staged referendum in Kherson.
According to Yurii Sobolevskyi, deputy head of Kherson Regional Council, Russian occupiers have no support from the locals and are thus unable to hold a staged referendum.

New video shows Russian soldiers standing next to dead bodies in Bucha on March 12, proving that Russians killed those people. Lie. First of all, those people were probably killed by Ukrainian artillery. Also many terror battalion forces were killed around this time. This proves nothing. Also the implication is that those are the same bodies lying there on April 2 when the media came back to Bucha. But for that to be true those bodies would have had to have lain there for almost three weeks. Looking at those b bodies, it’s obvious that none have been dead more than a day or so.
The video confirms that the atrocities in Bucha were committed when the city was occupied by the Russian forces.
Russian propaganda has been trying to claim that the bodies were planted by Ukrainians after Russians left the area.

A video shows a civilian vehicle proceeding up a road outside Kiev when he sees military vehicles, possibly a Russian column. Probable lie. He turns around and then stops his car when he sees men in black in the road. He gets out of his car to show them he is a civilian, and the men come out of the woods and shoot him dead. I understand that this is a local terrorbat or terrorbatallion. I don’t know why they shot him. Russian troops don’t dress in all black.
Russia deliberately attacked a field hospital at Avostal. Lie. That hospital must have been a ways underground and I don’t think the Russians can see what’s going on down in those catacombs. I doubt if they knew they were hitting a hospital.
⚡️ Mariupol defenders: Russian airstrike hit military field hospital at Azovstal plant, kills soldiers.
According to Azov fighters, overnight, Russia was attacking the hospital where Ukrainian soldiers were treated and then shelling it with naval artillery.

Russia stole 2,000 artworks from Mariupol. Doubtful. They probably took them in for safekeeping during the fighting. 99% of the population supports Russia, so why steal their art? In fact, they were simply moved to Donetsk for safekeeping. Also the museum director handed them over herself! However, most of the museum’s collection was destroyed by Ukrainian nationalist battalions. Also the Ukrainian army set up a command post at the museum. Return fire ended up destroying most of the collection.
⚡️Local official: Russia steals over 2,000 artworks from Mariupol museums.
According to Petro Andriushchenko, advisor to Mariupol mayor, stolen artworks include paintings of Ivan Aivazovsky and Mariupol-native Arkhip Kuindzhi, ancient icons, and medals.

Russia bombed a theater in Mariupol, burying 1,000 people under the rubble. Lie. We have already posted information showing that this is a fake and instead the Ukrainian Nazis mined the building’s lower floors and detonated the mines when they retreated. Here is an in depth analysis that shows that the damage comes from a blast in the very depths of the building. In contrast, there is little damage to the roof where a bomb obviously would have hit. This proves that there was no Russian bombing of that theater.
The war aims of NATO are changing now that Ukraine has been doing better on the battlefield. NATO now feels that Ukraine can win. Liz Truss says that the UK thinks it can throw Russia out of all of Ukraine. Lithuania says the goal is to remove Russia from Ukraine. Dubious. Ukraine has not been doing better on the battlefield and Russia has not been doing worse. The chances of Russia being thrown out of Ukraine now look quite dim.
There is a substantial threat that Russia may escalate to nuclear war. Lie. This is just not true. There’s no real threat but a NATO-Russia war, which this already is now, would not be a good thing.
Ukraine defeated Russia in the north of the country. Probably not true. Instead, that seemed to be more of a holding action to tie down troops up north while Russia fought in the south and east. On the other hand, there was an insurgency in some parts of the north, and it’s sort of a pain in the ass to hold land where you are being attacked by insurgents.
NATO is not arming Ukraine. Individual NATO governments are arming it, not NATO. Lie. It’s basically a coordinated NATO maneuver.
Ukraine is not being manipulated into fighting Russia. Lie. NATO has decided to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian.
Ukraine captured an intercepted Russian military audio talking about killing all Ukrainians. Uncertain. In the past, these have been shown to have been manipulated. But soldiers sometimes talk like this in wartime. On the other hand, this is not official government policy nor should it be.

Russia attacked a residential building on purpose in Kiev, killing one and wounding 10. Dubious. They were certainly not aiming at a residential building. It appears that the headquarters of a missile manufacturer is located in that building. But the building next to it could have been hit too.

A teenage girl athlete died in Mariupol due to Russian shelling, the city council reported. Uncertain. That city council is not a legal body now that Mariupol has been incorporated into the DNR, which is a new country. The old city council is pro-Nazi and has no power, and nothing they say is true. We do not know whose shells killed those girls. But residents blame Ukraine for 85% of the destruction in the city, regard Ukrainian troops as their enemies and Russian troops as their rescuers, so you do the math.
14-year-old athlete Alina Perehudova and her mother died in Mariupol as a result of shelling by Russian occupation forces, the local city council reported.

Russians are attacking green corridors for civilians to leave Mariupol. Lie. People can leave Mariupol anytime they want to for weeks now. However, this man decided to walk from Mariupol to Zaporozhye. Yes, there are land mines along the way and he was also walking through a war zone. Russia has not guaranteed any green corridor for those walking to Zaporozhye.
Russia is colonizing Ukraine. Lie. It’s not colonization unless you are populating it with your own people or exploiting its resources. It’s also not colonization if the people want to be added to the new country. Consent of the occupied proves there is no colonization. Colonization cannot happen with assent. Territories occupied in wartime by a foreign force are not being colonized. They are being occupied. But if you settle them with your own people, now you are colonizing it.
Russian colonialism in action right now in 2022 in occupied #Ukraine. Yes, it's happening right now. Russian colonialism is not just a thing of the past. Today, Russia is engaging in colonial practices in occupied Ukraine. Here's what's been happening👇

Russians deliberately destroyed the water supply in Nikolaev. Lie. We don’t know what happened here, but Russia doesn’t shut down electricity, water, power, etc. in the towns it occupies or even attacks. The people who have been shutting off all of these essential services in these cities under attack have been the Ukrainians! No one knows why they are doing it but people think it is to create a crisis humanitarian situation that they can blame Russia on.
I know that in Kharkiv the local government was shutting off all the basic services and refusing to provide people with food or water. They were also evicting people from shelters so the army could take over. Actually I believe in this case, it was the mayor of Nikolaev himself who shut the water off and told people to get water from rivers.
russians damaged the centralized water supply system in #Mykolayiv. It's impossible to repair it now as the shellings of the area would never stop. The humanitarian situation there is complicated, people are forced to collect rain water or water from ponds

Russians are deliberately attacking ambulances in Kharkiv. Lie. The local residents say 90% of the shelling of the city is being done by the Ukrainian government themselves so they can blame the Russians. Also the population is considered rather pro-Russian, so they may be seen as hostile. Ukrainian forces attack civilian populations they think of as hostile.
Shared my personal experience of being under Grad shelling in Saltivka with @clarissaward CNN team. Ukrainian first responders are real heroes who become targets for Russian “double tap” attacks. Out of 250 ambulances in Kharkiv 50 came under fire and were damaged by shrapnel. pic.twitter.com/rNiWri8YSM

Security guarantees are not the same thing as NATO membership. Lie. They might as well be and Russia will never agree to this nonsense.
Ukraine gave up nuclear weapons for the sake of world peace. We have then been knocking on NATO’s door, but it never opened. Security vacuum led to Russian aggression. The world owes Ukraine security and we ask states to decide which security guarantees they are ready to provide.

Russians are forcing schools in Kherson to switch to a Russian curriculum. True. But most of the population probably wants to join the republics or Russia anyway, and most people support Russia, so who cares?
⚡️Russians force school teachers in occupied town to switch to Russian curriculum.
Yuriy Sobolevskyi, deputy head of Kherson Regional Council, said that school principals in Henichesk in Kherson Oblast were told that teachers must switch or face dismissal.

Russia bombed a hospital in Makariv near Kiev. Probably not. The town was occupied by Russia the whole time, so all of the artillery damage was due to Ukrainian shelling. No doubt this hospital was hit with Ukrainian shells.
This is what used to be a brand new primary health care center in Makariv, near Kyiv. Although surroundings are severely damaged by shells, this one, most likely, was directly struck by a larger thing, presumably an air bomb. pic.twitter.com/GSSLAYlasj

Ukraine has been a Russian colony for 350 years. During that time it has tried to erase Ukrainian nationhood, the Ukrainian language, etc. Not completely true. I am not here to defend Russia’s efforts to deny Ukrainian nationhood and language, which are severely exacerbating this conflict. However, the true historic Ukraine is only in the very center of the country. All of the rest was always just Russia. The south got added to Russia by Catherine the Great in 1812. The west was always just Poland and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. It was only added by Stalin in 1939. The entire east was always just Russia and it was added by Lenin in 1917. Crimea was always Russia and it was added by Khrushchev in 1953 because he was a Ukrainian. The Ukrainian language was not attacked to my knowledge during the USSR. It may have been proscribed before that time. And it has not been attacked since Ukraine went independent. There have been no attacks on the Ukrainian language for a century. Anyway the true historical Ukraine only covers an area in the center, maybe 20-25% of the country. The rest was always just Poland and Russia. Russia refers to Ukraine as Little Russia or Malorussia as an insult. Lie. The word actually carries more the meaning of Central Russia in Russian. But even Little Russia is not meant to be insulting. It only implies that Ukraine is a smaller country that is really just a part of Russia like Belarus.
“Brotherly nations” is a myth. Always has been. If Russia calls you a “brotherly nation,” it basically says “Hey, we have every right to do whatever we want to your country.” pic.twitter.com/XHyQCFox0H

Ukraine is not a hotbed of woke culture and Globohomo. Lie. As you can see below in the nonsense that could have been written by BLM and CRT idiots, woke culture has taken off in Ukraine, so it’s now a “woke Nazi” country. Most woke SJW types are now strongly pro-Ukraine, so they are actually woke Nazis or SJW Nazis. I know that sounds weird because they call everyone else Nazis, but they are Nazis themselves! As many have been noting, they are quite authoritarian or totalitarian. As you can see, Ukraine went full woketard. As soon as the Nazi revolution happened in 2014, a gay pride parade happened in Kiev very quickly afterwards. So this is a sort of gay Nazism or LGBTQ Nazism or Globohomo Nazism. So we can now see the connections between woke and SJW culture, Globohomo, Western imperialism, ISIS and Al Qaeda headchoppers and out and out Nazism. None of it makes any sense at all, but imperial projects rarely do. They’re all just a means to an end.
It’s always a good time to destroy a toxic imperial myth. But right now, it’s ✨crucial✨

Russia has been stealing farmers and ag companies of their equipment and crops, blowing up storage facilities, and trying to starve Ukrainians and halt Ukrainian crop exports. Uncertain. This is certainly a bizarre charge all right, and we do not know enough about whether there is anything to it. This entire area is pro-Russia, so it boggles the mind why Russians would attack the very farmers who support them.
We haven’t been able to verify any reports of theft of crops or equipment. One photo of stolen Ukrainian equipment in Chechnya was a fake. It was just a photo of some equipment in Chechnya. Why would Russia try to starve its own supporters? Why steal from your own supporters? Why try to Ukraine from exporting crops? None of this makes much sense.
In Ukraine's South, evidence mounts that Russian troops have been robbing farmers and agriculture companies of their equipment and crops, targeting storage facilities, essentially trying to starve Ukrainians and halt crop exports from Ukraine to places that depend on UA produce

Russia blew up an apartment building in Borodyanka. Lie. It was in front of this building that the head of the UN, the Ukrainian agent Antonio Guterres, gave his speech implicitly blaming Russia for the destruction of the building. However, Russia occupied this city the whole time, so all of the artillery damage here is caused by the Ukrainians. This specific damage has been proven to have been caused by Ukrainian MLRS launchers. However, it has been blamed on Russia by the West ever since photos of it emerged.
Antonio Guterres, UN chief, in Borodyanka was clearly moved by the massive destruction of homes he saw
