“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 women and 3 men died, all civilians.

Putin in visita a Mariupol.
Article published by Russia Today (RT) - 20th March 2023:
Putin’s trip to Donbass was 'spontaneous’ – Kremlin.
The Russian president made an unplanned stop in Mariupol where he met with locals and checked on the restoration of the city.
Russian President Vladimir Putin's surprise visit to the Donbass region was largely “spontaneous” and effectively turned into a full-fledged “working trip,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov revealed on Sunday.
The overnight trip was the first time Putin has visited Donbass since it broke away from Ukraine in 2014. it was eventually incorporated into Russia following referendums last year.
During Putin's stay in the city of Mariupol, he met locals and visited flats in a newly constructed residential building. The city was the scene of intense fighting early in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and ended up being heavily damaged in the process.
“Initially, the plan was only to visit this residential complex, and, of course, neither meeting the citizens, nor paying them a visit [in their homes] was planned. It was all entirely spontaneous,” Peskov told reporters.
The visit turned into a “full-fledged working trip” for the president, Peskov continued, as Putin was briefed by Deputy PM Marat Khusnullin, who accompanied him during the visit, on the restoration process ongoing in the city. In particular, the Russian leader was told about “the development of the urban economy, roads, the restoration of destroyed buildings, how many people are working, how working conditions are provided, how building materials are delivered,” the spokesman explained.
After his Mariupol visit, Putin proceeded to the city of Rostov-on-Don, where he met with Russia’s top military brass at a command-and-control center in charge of the military operation in Ukraine.
The visit to the command post had not been planned in advance either, Peskov said, adding that the president’s arrival was not an issue given that the facility operates around the clock.
“Neither the presidential administration, nor the Ministry of Defense planned it in advance,” the spokesman stated. During the trip, Putin “heard reports” from a number of top military commanders, including from the chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov and also gave his own “assessments of the situation,” Peskov added.

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.

UPDATES TO BE ADDED HERE AS AND WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS
THERE IS A SADISTIC HATRED & UNCONSCIONABLE EVIL WITHIN UKRAINE THAT DEFIES ALL DESCRIPTION
You may have heard of the fact that there is a strong loyalty to certain mythologies concerning the Nazis in Ukraine and this may have surprised you. This is in connection with the beliefs of Ukrainian nationalists during world war two that the Nazis would be useful in driving Russian influence from Ukraine and furthering the cause of Ukraine’s hoped for sovereignty.
By whatever means and for whatever purpose the devotion to the memory of the Nazis and those Ukrainians who fought for them is still extremely strong in Ukraine. Indeed it is so strong that it has been harnessed even, surprising as it may seem, by Jewish oligarchs to shore up and increase their power and political leverage.
The violence which this mythology breeds cannot be reflected by mere words. It encompasses and surpasses any concepts of torture and sadistic acts that any reasonably normal person can imagine. It was seen in very recent times in the treatment meted out to Russian prisoners of war who were subjected to being shot in the groin and knees, though this was the least of it, gouging out their eyes with knives appears to have been the favoured act of violence. Subsequently a bag was placed over their heads and they were kicked to death.
Though deeply shocking such incidents do not surprise those who have observed the acts of violence perpetrated by the Ukrainian regime since an insurrection removed the democratically elected president and government of Ukraine in 2014. These acts of violence, against the civilian population of the eastern region of Ukraine known as the Donbass, were not publicised in the West. It was not seen as convenient or expedient to do so.
The years 2014 and 2015 were the worst where the shelling of the civilian population was at its worst by the Ukrainian army and the many Nazi-legacy extremists who couldn’t wait to rain devastation down on those they called ‘Moskals’ (Russians). They were fellow Ukrainians but considered sub-human traitors to Ukraine because they spoke Russian and considered Russia to be a friend. They were targeted for extinction in a genocide only prevented by the Russian intervention on February 24th of this year.
But the level of hatred does not end with the attacks upon the men, women, and children of the Donbass through the relentless mortar shelling they have endured from the Spring of 2014 until today (the Ukrainian army shell them each day, today being no exception). The malaise of sadistic behaviour exists right across Ukraine in respect of those that violent minorities, often figures of authority in the security services, feel for fellow Ukrainians.
In 2014 members of the Ukrainian parliament who voiced opinions not conducive to the views of the mob outside were regularly taken by them when they attempted to exit the parliament building were verbally abused while being dumped bodily into large dumpster bins. Assassination threats were made using burning car tyres to intimidate after the style of immolation carried out by mobs in South Africa in recent years.
Those who carry out such acts are very commonly found to sport swastika tattoos and representations of various other items of Nazi regalia or symbolism. The prisoners that Russia is taking now are inspected for these as they indicate clearly the slavish devotion to the memory of the Nazis who form an integral part of the mythology of Ukraine. The nationalist leaders who worked with the Nazis are heralded as state heroes with monuments erected to them and street names bear their names.
The latest form the deep hatreds within Ukrainian society show themselves is in vigilantism which has become rife there. If you speak Russian, if you have Romany Gypsy blood or if you have perpetrated some petty crime such as stealing a loaf of bread you risk being tied to the nearest pole, post or tree, then part stripped and beaten. Law has all but disappeared in the locations where this is taking place and the practice has become widespread. On many of the occasions a uniformed person is seen perpetrating these acts.
This is only the tip of the iceberg concerning the deep-seated hatreds and acts of unimaginable violence that infest Ukraine. Those like I who watched from the winter of 2013-14 onward have seen many terrible and previously unimaginable things, stomach-churning acts of pure terror-inducing violence and merciless executions. Such things that should have become a black memory concerning those terrible days when the human demons known as the Nazis had their cruel and sadistic way across the continent of Europe.
None of this fits with the poor innocent Ukraine narrative, I know. That narrative was a necessary facade to generate support for its regime and loathing for Russia. It was a lie, and an extremely cynical lie. The western powers made a deal with a very real devil in the winter of 2013-14. They conceived of a way to use the ultra-violence displayed on Kiev’s Maidan Square to achieve their geopolitical goal of wrenching Ukraine into the western orbit. The praising of that violence, the lauding of its perpetrators as heroes reflected the same distorted belief system that those thugs used to justify the Nazis and their devotion to them.
And so we come to the present situation where the reckoning is upon those whose lives are predicated upon hatred and sadistic violence. They are now paying the highest possible cost for their modern day Nazism and ever-present sadism. The western world too is paying the price of letting their elites get away with neglecting and indeed fostering the evil within Ukraine, using its as a tool for their own ends. Now a cleansing is taking place, a baptism of fire after which it is fervently to be hoped that a new and far better Ukraine emerges, one free of the unconscionable hatred that has festered at its heart for far too long now.
