“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.

US becoming ‘one-party state’ – Tucker Carlson.
The former Fox News host has accused the corporate press of ignoring America’s real issues.
Tucker Carlson has released a video tearing into American news outlets, in his first appearance since parting ways with Fox News, saying genuine debate on major issues is simply “not permitted” in US media.
In a clip shared to Twitter on Wednesday evening, the former Fox host delivered a monologue similar to those heard on his long-time show, ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’, even posting the video to coincide with his previous timeslot.
While he did not directly address his reported firing from Fox News earlier this week, Carlson launched into a scathing criticism of the mainstream media, saying most discussions on TV news shows are “irrelevant” and “unbelievably stupid,” while key subjects go unmentioned.
“The undeniably big topics, the ones that will define our future, get virtually no discussion at all – war, civil liberties, emerging science, demographic change, corporate power, natural resources. When was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of those issues?” he said. “It’s been a long time; debates like that are not permitted in American media.”
He went on to argue that both major political parties in the US have “reached consensus on what benefits them” and now “actively collude” to shut down meaningful discussion, saying the American establishment has “given up on persuasion” and is now “resorting to force” and increasing censorship.
“Suddenly, the United States looks very much like a one-party state,” Carlson continued. “That’s a depressing realization, but it’s not permanent. Our current orthodoxies won’t last... This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue, so it won’t.”
Carlson’s departure from Fox on Monday was a major shake-up for the outlet, as his prime-time show was long one of the highest-rated programs on cable news. Despite reports that he was dismissed, Fox said they had “agreed to part ways” and offered no further explanation for the decision, which has already driven a drop in both the network's ratings and market value.
The former host was a polarizing figure during his tenure at Fox, routinely accused of spreading “hate” and “disinformation” by left and liberal critics while garnering a major fan base among conservative viewers. His show occasionally triggered the ire of US officials, with former Pentagon spokesman John Kirby once addressing Carlson directly during a 2021 press briefing, insisting the military would not “take… advice from a talk-show host.”

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 DISASTROUS UTOPIANISM OF THE WESTERN ELITES
Perhaps the goal of universal control by western elites of all major aspects of geopolitical importance worldwide has ALWAYS been their goal but it has clearly existed at least as far back as the end of World War II.
In any event, it has become abundantly clear in the last two decades that this is the fixed goal that unites not only the West’s political elites but all others of any importance within their societies, in a war to achieve it.
In any event, it has become abundantly clear in the last two decades that this is now the fixed goal that unites not only the West’s political elites but of all others of any importance within their societies in a war to achieve it.
The pathway to having every nation globally mirror western liberal values and having systems of governance that mirror the so-called democratic systems of western nations runs through the ambition to undermine all systems, individuals and cultures which do not mirror these requirements.
Whether this goal and these requirements must also be acquiesced to by the dictatorships of western allies in the Middle East is doubtful however, that nations such as Russia, China, Syria, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, North Korea and presumably Vietnam and others MUST do so has been made abundantly clear if not clearly stated as such.
This is a form of utopianism which in my opinion can only lead to disaster and mass death due to its inherently divisive nature. The mix of colonialist concepts of superiority, racist notions of the same and a mentality that reeks of the worst kind of intolerance seen in the western missionary zeal of the nineteenth century in Africa.
Western elites have almost completely dispensed with diplomacy in their demand that others comply with their demands and instead wage wars of overt and covert subversion, engage in insidious propaganda, information wars and outright military aggression to achieve their goal of forcing all nations to bend to their will. This they do expecting all those within their camp in a position to assist to do so and in so doing completely distort access to or reporting of objective truth.
In addition, a false facade of sanctity regarding all past and present acts of violence and all continuing acts of aggression, continue to be framed in a way that relieves western elites of any notion of culpability and instead provides a fig-leaf of universal goodness over their crimes.
In total, this portrait of western elites and their activities provides a constant platform for unlimited acts of international aggression, the potential for mass murder and destruction while total sanction for all such activities is readily and constantly available. In this respect, the iniquities of all previous misguided and brutally callous utopian demands of others whether in the political or religious fields are reflected.
The group-thought belief systems inherent, particularly in the USA and UK, have a long and inglorious history. The wiping out of the native population within what is now the United States and subsequent enslavement of millions from the African continent along with the colonialist exploits of the United Kingdom show where such exceptionalist and utopian concepts have led in the past.
What confidence can there be that this latest, largely US-UK project will be any different from their activities in the past? If an objective approach is taken informed by the myriad acts of international piracy and interference by these two nations in past times the answer must surely be little indeed. The most likely result will be a level of division, war, disruption, global chaos and misery quite unparalleled in human history.
