*** TIME AND PATIENCE ARE RUNNING OUT FOR UKRAINE ***
“Ukraine. What is the truth...?
Why won’t western media tell both sides…?”
VIRTUALLY UNREPORTED ATROCITY IN LUGANSK, 2nd JUNE 2014
A lot has been said about atrocities in the western media claimed to have been perpetrated by the Russians, for example at Bucha and Mariupol among others. These assertions are conveyed on the say so of the Ukrainian authorities. How willing though are western news broadcasters to convey atrocities attributed to the Ukrainians? The following will I think provide the answer.
If anyone wonders if they are receiving accurate coverage of the conflict in Ukraine I would suggest watching the video below of an event which occurred on the 2nd of June 2014 and ask themselves if they recall hearing about it on any mainstream media news channel at the time.
The video is harrowing to watch. The bodies (five women and three men) are real. Yet across western media there was only one single news report that occurred a day later. This was from CNN and occurred only because a CNN team happened to be nearby at the time of the atrocity and so the network could hardly ignore it as all others so obviously did.
The video below shows the unvarnished truth that was not considered newsworthy in western mainstream news.
THE SINGLE WESTERN MSM REPORT ON THE LUGANSK ATROCITY, 3rd JUNE 2014
The video at the CNN link below is the crime scene sanitised by CNN, though played straight with honest reporting on the scene not playing things to Kiev’s tune.
(There was a time early in the war in the Donbass when CNN were not afraid to contradict the Ukrainian regime in Kiev.)
Watch because it's the first and last time you will see this. 5 men & 3 women died, all civilians.

Article from Russia Today (RT) - 27th February 2023:
Zelensky threatens unsupportive Americans.
The Ukrainian leader alleged the US would lose its influence in the world if it stopped backing Kiev.
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky warned Americans to keep supporting Ukraine or risk geopolitical irrelevance, during a press conference on the anniversary of Russia’s military operation in the country. Should it stop funding Kiev’s war effort, the US will "lose the leadership position that they are enjoying in the world," the Ukrainian leader declared on Friday.
"If they do not change their opinion…they will lose NATO, they will lose the clout of the United States, they will lose the leadership position they are enjoying in the world," Zelensky declared, following a speech in which he declared 2023 the "Year of Invincibility" and vowed to unite the world against Russia.
The warning was a response to a reporter asking what Zelensky would tell the "growing number of Americans" who believe their country is giving too much money and support to Ukraine. The president made sure to thank his American supporters – a group he hinted included not just Congress and President Joe Biden but also "the TV channels" and "the journalists" – before threatening those who held the "dangerous" opinion that the US should "give up" on Kiev.
"The US is never going to give up on a NATO member state," Zelensky declared, insisting that should Ukraine fall because of flagging support from Washington, Russia would "enter the Baltic states, NATO member states, and then the US will have to send their sons and daughters exactly the way as we are sending their [sic] sons and daughters to war."
"They will be dying," the Ukrainian leader stressed.
The actor-turned-politician added that interrupting the flow of dollars to Ukraine would also cause the US to "lose the support of a country with 40 million population, with millions of children. Are American children any different from ours?" he asked.
The Republican Party regained control of the House of Representatives in last year’s midterm elections in part on a promise to curtail the Biden administration’s blank check to Kiev. While Congress has not yet passed any legislation to rein in spending on the conflict, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) promised earlier this week to introduce a bill to force an audit of the Ukraine aid program and the House Oversight Committee demanded the administration turn over documents proving the military and economic aid being sent to Ukraine was not being lost to "waste, fraud, and abuse."
The US has thus far pledged $113 billion to Ukraine's war effort, vowing to continue pouring money into the conflict for "as long as it takes."

SUPPORTING SCOTT RITTER
I've been listening to Scott Ritter describe how things are for him and I suspect have been for him for quite some time now.
He has been doing a LOT of unpaid work with a great many interview requests coming in that he has been ready and willing to agree to. But the work where receives some pay for have suffered due to this, being left until the wee small hours of the night to complete work on.
Scott, I think you will agree, has been one of the most influential voices out there on Russia and Ukraine.
I was moved by Scott's words to take an annual subscription to his Substack account that he runs in coordination with his colleague on 'U.S. Tour of Duty', Jeff Norman. This is the main way that Scott recommends to help him with finances with which to upgrade his delivery of comment on Russia and Ukraine, via a better microphone etc. and perhaps the creation of a recording studio in his basement to create a more professional and impressive look. To invest in these things he would like to be sure that this has a viable financial future.
Would you also like to help by subscribing at one of the various levels to Scott's Substack account? I hope so. If so the link is here:
Below you'll find the edited part of the video where Scott talks of his commitments to get the facts out on events in Ukraine and of the finances that would come in handy to enhance their delivery:
VICTORY BELONGS TO RUSSIA: IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME
Each day that passes makes a conclusive Russian victory in the Donbass and beyond more certain. As Russia bolsters her forces, and weaponry, those of Ukraine decrease. Russian forces gain ready access to rest and recuperation as troop numbers increase. The increasingly exhausted and demoralised Ukrainian troops have an ever decreasing prospect of such respite. This situation is likely to bring them to complete breakdown as Russia unleashes the firepower of the more modern and advanced weaponry that is arriving with the newly mobilised Russian troops.
The various Ukrainian offensives are now weak when confronted by the reinforced Russian lines. A few futile efforts achieve quite miserable results before fire reigns down on the Ukrainian troops and they are forced back to their starting positions.
And now, all this being said, we have arrived at the wet, and later, freezing conditions where these pathetic Ukrainian forces will be subject to myriad forms of abject misery with death and injury all around them while they lie sodden or frozen, abandoned to their fate by Kiev.
The pitiable young and old of Ukraine have been frogmarched to their deaths as cannon-fodder while the bestial elites of the collective West urge their "president" to add more to their number there at the gates of Hell and their doom. We must feel for the majority of them as they are not the Nazis we revile, in most part they are decent men, fathers, sons, brothers, husband and uncles, who no doubt saw through the coup of 2014 for what it was. But sadly, their fate seems sealed.
Nothing will stop Russia now. Every factor favours them. Victory will be Russia's. In Donbass and beyond and in due course across the world.
Victory belongs to Russia: It is now only a matter of time.

THE 'POOR UKRAINE' SYNDROME IS GOING TO SELF-DESTRUCT
What have the western leaders done? The Ukraine obsession has been catastrophic in the long-lasting damage it has done, particularly to Europe. But North America is also beginning to see that its fabric has been deeply undermined by its president throwing almost endless money at the Ukrainian money pit.
The fundamentals of western lifestyles have been brought to the weakest state in living memory by the sanctions regime against Russia. Cheap Russian oil and gas has been underpinning European prosperity for a generation and cannot be adequately replaced.
Now, within months it will all be seen as being a completely worthless enterprise which has split the world in two. The nations of the 'Global South' are not playing the West's game any more. They have had enough of the patronising dictatorship of the wealthy north and are sticking their finger up to the USA and UK in particular as the two most fervent advocates for the West's decline through adventurism.
As if the catastrophic serial debacles of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria are not enough with all the useless billions that went into them now further billions have been thrown away in Ukraine and created a perfect storm of debilitating consequences for all western populations.
Now, after Russian winning her security and the renewed respect of most of the world for it, what will western nations receive in consequence of their failure and defeat? For one it will have the bill for all that now needs doing in western Ukraine due to Boris Johnson and Joe Biden insisting on war not peace by demanding Zelensky keep fighting rather than come to a settlement in Istanbul last March.
Rebuilding all the infrastructure damaged and destroyed in western Ukraine will not be the only cost for the West, not by a long shot.
Ukrainian radicals will arrive in Europe and the USA through the utterly naive and hugely misinformed state and media conditioning exercise that generated the ‘Poor Ukraine’ syndrome.
The western world went completely gooey and air-brained in a lunatic sanitising of some of the most evil men and women on the planet. Amazon is selling their Nazi-symbol infested clothing, their vile personages have even appeared alongside Zelensky in his poor-me, poor Ukraine zoom pleadings to parliaments.
Once the evil of these neo-Nazi immigrants becomes clear to western populations they will surely wake up fast. Those the West is lauding as heroes are anything but as European and U.S. populations will find out once they arrive in numbers and start a crime wave. While the everyday Ukrainians who never wanted this war and wished to make peace with Russia suffer at home.
It is usual when a war is waged for both sides to enter a war mode where jingoism rather than objective reality is order of the day, but in the age of the 24 hour news cycle and social media the conditioning effect leading to eventual blindness is utterly pernicious. This will be seen to have had disastrous effects in deceiving the majority of people in the West. Tragically they are in for a rude awakening from their idealistic slumbers.
So surprising was the speed with which all the official lies about Iraq were forgotten that we should not be surprised at the alacrity with which the conditioning on Ukraine is accepted.Of course it’s a great tale, one of those can’t-miss good and evil tales that can quickly turn a usually logical mind to jello and creep straight past the grey matter that normally can smell a giant sized rat when one comes that close.
The Ukraine western populations are “Ohoo-ing and Ahh-ing about is as real as the Tooth Fairy or Santa Claus and has about as much reality to it as an episode of a Fifties cowboy movie. But this tale is made to measure and the measurement entails the degree to which the majority of western thought skims along the surface of news like a cat on ice.
Western headline surfers are perfect for being turned into unknowing guinea pigs for those who have the exact psychological measure of them. They don’t stand a chance. Like Pavlov’s Dogs they can be made to emotionally salivate at will.
And no one (or hardly anyone) seems any the wiser. That poor little Ukraine is being invaded and destroyed by the totally evil Russian bear is fed in new morsels every blessed day, fed directly into the shrunken ever-receptive brains of Mr and Mrs Average and their image-obsessed kids. Western populations, once more, were taken for a ride.
But for how long now? For how long until the realisation that western populations were encouraged to love haters and subsidise murderers and those with the most evil, Nazi-mentality imaginable? When the full truth about how western leaders such as Boris Johnson and Joe Biden forced an end to negotiations that were within reach of an agreement? What then for the trust based on ignorance and idealism?
When Azov thugs can’t find jobs paying what they want and become paid assassins and mobsters, drug runners and who knows what else… how will those bleeding heart liberals feel about them then? And in the chaos of western Ukraine when Zelensky has fled to his heavily-guarded mansion in Israel... how cheated and duped will the idealists of Europe and America feel?
When middle-class families go bankrupt, losing their homes and livelihoods or small businesses due to the blowback from the continuing effect of sanctions that the West's leaders used to attack Russia… what then?
When the prices we all pay for basic necessities hits unheard of heights and we can no longer afford to heat our homes (in the event you still have one) when your elderly parents die from malnutrition or the cold… how will your love affair with the ‘poor Ukrainians’ look to you then?
When the news leaks out that it wasn’t the Russians that did Bucha, the Mariupol theatre, the schools, hospitals and all else that you raved and ranted at them for, what then?
When you hear what the USA and UK plotted via NATO to undermine Russia’s security, when you finally see the videos of Ukrainian troops torturing young Russian troops by shooting them in the genitals and gouging their eyes out… what then?
How will you feel about your beloved Ukrainians then?
I predict in three months or less from now you will feel sick to your stomach that you have been so deliberately deceived and at that point…
