*** HOW MANY MORE COUPS & CRIMES TILL THE WEST IS QUARANTINED? ***
“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.

Article published by Russia Today (RT) - 11th March 2023:
Lavrov likens protests in ex-Soviet state to 2014 Kiev coup.
The mass demonstrations in Georgia have been “orchestrated” from abroad, the Russian foreign minister believes.
The massive protests Georgia has been facing over the past week closely resemble the 2014 Maidan coup in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday. Backed by external powers, these protests are just another plot attempt, he told the ‘Great Game’ show on Russia’s Channel 1.
Over the last week, thousands of people have gathered by the Georgian parliament in Tbilisi in order to protest a bill that would have required individuals and organizations with foreign funding to register as “agents of foreign influence.”
The demonstrators hit the streets after the bill, which was introduced by the ‘Georgian Dream’ party, passed its first reading. The protests quickly spiraled out into clashes with the police in which several officers were injured and dozens of demonstrators were detained.
“[That] closely resembles Kiev’s ‘Maidan’ [coup],” Lavrov said, adding that, “There is no doubt that … the bill was nothing but a pretext for essentially launching a coup attempt.” According to the minister, the bill introduced by the Georgian lawmakers “pales” in comparison to how noncommercial organizations are regulated in the US, France, or Israel.
The protests in Georgia have been “orchestrated” from abroad, the Russian minister believes, adding that their real goal is to create another “irritating” situation on Russia’s borders. In pursuing its goals, the West is attempting to sacrifice Georgia’s national interests and close economic ties with Russia, he added.
Lavrov also blasted the EU over what he called a “hypocritical” stance on the issue. “A whole range of European nations have much more strict regulations in this field,” the minister insisted, adding that EU top diplomat Josep Borrell still claimed “without batting an eye” that the Georgian bill “contradicts European values” and deprives Georgia of the prospect of joining the bloc.
“The hypocrisy is obvious,” the minister added. Earlier this week, Borrell’s office issued a statement that blasted the bill as “incompatible with EU values and standards” and going “against Georgia’s stated objective of joining the European Union.” The statement also warned of “serious repercussions” for relations between Tbilisi and Brussels if the bill was passed.
The Russian minister also pointed out the striking differences in how the EU and the US treated the protests in Georgia and Moldova. While backing demonstrations in Tbilisi, Washington and its allies still condemned similar actions in Moldova, which saw months of protests over a surge in cost of living and energy prices, Lavrov said.
His words came as Georgian MPs have rejected the controversial bill during the second reading, despite it being previously withdrawn by its authors. The procedure was necessary for it to be officially squashed. The nation’s authorities have also announced they would be releasing all of the people who had been detained during the protests.

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.

UPDATES TO BE ADDED HERE AS AND WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS
WESTERN WAR MODE MYOPIA & THE IMMINENT REVELATION OF MASSIVE INCOMPETENCE
Very soon there will be widespread incomprehension and disbelief combined as the situation in Ukraine proves to have a very different face to it than western audiences have been told.
A general ‘war mode’ mentality has prevailed in the West for many years now, in fact for almost two entire decades and the object of the distortion that war mode always entails has been Russia and its president.
This war mode mentality was running at a relatively low level during this time by comparison with what we have seen across the western world since Russia began its operation in Ukraine on the 24th of February. Since then it has been all-consuming.
Those who continued to take it for granted that their mainstream news services were giving them a factual account of events in Ukraine are those who will experience the maximum disbelief and incomprehension within the next few weeks.
War mode, for those who are unfamiliar with the term, requires of all elites within a country at war, and indeed from most members of the public also (though this is not as possible now as in the past) a dedication to communicating only positive news about the nation or its allies and only negativity or no comment at all concerning the actions of the enemy.
Thus the fiction has been manufactured and sold about plucky little Ukraine that never did anything to anyone and its wonderfully brave soldiers, courageously and charismatically led by a noble and selfless president. No mention of the true reality where a violent insurrection brought a succession of illegal president and governments to Ukraine and that its troops commit war crimes including torture and murder of prisoners of war.
Western populations have been sold yet another pack of lies and amazingly, most have fallen for them. After all the waterfalls of lies that went before these the gullibility of western populations remains undiminished. This leaves out an enormous part of the picture of events in Ukraine while delivering a patently false picture of present realities and of future likelihoods.
The situation in Ukraine is in fact not good at all for the forces that Kiev commands. Things are not going well and have not been going well since the start apart from a few minor and isolated incidents which have played little role at the time or in the final outcome.
Russia will have ejected, killed or captured all Ukrainian troops within the Donbass no later that a point three months from today. With developments underway where Ukrainian troops are beginning to surrender in ever greater numbers and the most defensible city, Bakhmut will be fully under Russian control within the next two weeks at the most, the end is clearly near.
The remaining cities to be taken by Russia in the Donbass are not nearly as defensible as was Bakhmut. Kramatorsk and Slavyansk will fall in much easier fashion in the following months.
There are rumours of great discontent regarding a number of factors within the Ukrainian high command which if true appear certain to grow. More elderly men and young boys are being marshalled into the Ukrainian military and sent to the front lines as cannon fodder with precious little training. Desperation appears to be growing as the interference of Zelensky and those around him with military affairs is rumoured to be disturbing their military commanders and indeed causing losses through inept and incompetent decisions.
Meanwhile, instead of telling western audiences about any of this and most importantly the likely fall of the entire Donbass region its mass media falls largely silent. This is at least better that the previous war mode policy which to be frank about it was little more than baseless propaganda and wishful thinking.
It appears, though this is only rumoured currently, that the advice on tactics being given by the USA and UK to the Ukrainian military command, has been extremely poor with flawed understanding of the Russian tactics of war.
Rather than plucky Ukraine going from victory to victory as portrayed in every mainstream rifle and TV network across the West it has gone from one loss to another in recent months and is now facing total defeat, partially as a result of Russian military professionalism and partly through the gross incompetence of its leadership and allies.
The resulting failure of the West’s latest coup and crime policy will have a humiliating effect for those responsible. But will that deter them? If the past is anything to go by it will not. Look at the long list of regime change failures they have already perpetrated. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria. The consequences of these disastrous bouts of violent death and destruction mark them out as abject failures even if they did decapitate the governments they targeted.
Consequent to all of the above the leaders of Eurasia and the Global South have had enough. It is clear who the primary belligerent is on this planet. It is easily identified as the collective west. And now at last there is enough power residing within those opposing it to do something about these criminals and to stop their fomenting of coups and committing of crimes. Progressively and collectively those nations now gathering their collective power within organisations such as BRICS will gradually isolate the malign and self-seeking powers of the West and ultimately quarantine them for good and all.
