“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) - 2nd April 2023:
France believes only China can deliver Ukraine peace deal – CNN.
Beijing's involvement could be a “game changer” for both sides, an anonymous official told the US broadcaster.
China’s power and close relationship with Moscow means it may be “the only country on Earth” capable of brokering a deal in Ukraine, a source within the French presidency told CNN on Friday. The reported comment comes ahead of French President Emmanuel Macron's visit to Beijing next week.
“It’s obvious that China is one of the few countries on Earth – maybe the only country in the world – to have a ‘game-changer’ effect on the conflict, for both sides,” the source said.
China has already positioned itself as a potential arbiter of peace in Ukraine, with the ruling Communist Party releasing its 12-point ‘Position on the Political Settlement of the Ukraine Crisis’ in February. Although described in the Western media as a “peace plan,” the document does not offer a step-by-step guide to ending the conflict, and instead lists principles to which Beijing recommends any future deal adheres.
Its 12 points include concessions to both sides. For example, it stresses that “the sovereignty of all countries” must be respected – a nod to Kiev’s insistence that its pre-conflict borders be returned, while also insisting that “the legitimate security interests and concerns of all countries must be taken seriously,” a reference to Moscow’s refusal to accept further NATO expansion along its borders.
The Chinese position was welcomed by the Kremlin, but rejected by the US State Department as a “tactical move” to stall the conflict in Russia’s favor. In Ukraine, President Vladimir Zelensky said he only agrees with a handful of points in the document.
French President Emmanuel Macron will travel to China on Wednesday to meet with President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Qiang. According to CNN’s source, he will attempt to “find a way to identify solutions to end this war in the medium term.” However, Reuters reported that Macron will give Xi a stern warning against providing Russia with weapons to use in Ukraine.
“Our message will be clear: There may be a temptation to get closer to Russia, but do not cross that line,” an anonymous French diplomat told the news agency.
Whether Beijing will listen is another story. With Washington stepping up its military presence around China and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen hinting at diplomatic consequences for Beijing over its relationship with Moscow, Xi signed more than a dozen agreements with Russian President Vladimir Putin last month, while the Chinese Defense Ministry said it is ready to strengthen military cooperation with Russia.

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
WELCOME TO THE MULTIPOLAR WORLD: THE GLOBAL SOUTH IS REFUSING TO BE BULLIED BY THE COLLECTIVE WEST
The authorities in both Russia and China are making it perfectly clear that they want nothing to do with the culture wars raging in the West, particularly those occurring in the USA.
Like it or not they are making a stand against what they see as a narcissistic, navel-gazing, rabidly self-interested, and entitlement-infused amorality masquerading as ‘human rights’.
Their way is the way of long-held traditions that have stood the test of time and bear a minimum of potential for endless division as one sector of society continually fights another. The tried and tested principles of the past are their choice, not the headlong flight into headlong chaos they see the West descending into.
In America there’s a phrase that has become well known in recent years, “My country right or wrong”. The same stance can be applied to the approaches in both Russia and China now. For them, unity is of paramount importance and the atomization of their societies in culture wars is abhorrent. They have both been through that with hugely tragic consequences and have no intention of returning to those days when certain dogmas were forced on people and entire lives could be cancelled at a stroke.
Of course, there will be those who are aghast that the freedoms of the West could be criticised in this way, aren’t we all to be able to let our freak flags fly and do exactly as we please within the law? But this flies in the face of the realities faced by nations who do not have anything like the privileges of wealth boasted of in the USA and those who are ambitious to be just like them. In those nations, relatively much poorer these are simply examples of excess and selfishness, of societies of empire, reaching a similar stage as that of Rome just as it fell.
Which way forward will we take as a species? Toward a complete anarchy of infinite diversity? Or on a more solid path where predictability and unity are emphasised above all else? On the former path, a constant updating of the rules will be required in each human mind. Do’s and don’ts will become minefields needing new maps on an almost daily basis. Many will find their minds swirling with confusion as they are castigated for using an inappropriate pronoun or turn of phrase or even for an action such as opening a door or clapping too loudly. The thought police will appear to be everywhere waiting to pounce, punish and regulate behaviour.
In the traditional societies where a lesser degree of ‘anything goes’ freedom exists predictability is far higher than in the ‘human rights are all’ West and or good reason. Access to relatively freely available income is also traditionally less. Absolute human rights have not been affordable as predictable behaviour and hard work, raising families, and solidarity to get through hard times together have been extremely valuable, indeed necessary, attributes. The affluent West has been able to exploit much in the so-called developing nations and use those resources as a springboard (along with their own natural assets) to future undreamed of by most of the rest of the world.
When everyone wants their own way no one gets their way. As we see now in western nations, affluence breeds a certain aggression where the fight to assert one’s own rights rather than looking for a communal solution emphasising unity as human beings, creates a social war at its extremes. Methods become increasingly divisive where those opposing or seeming to oppose such individuals are almost depicted as war criminals, as racists, fascists, and a great number of other terms denoting cancellation.
For those like me who were inspired by the enthusiasm for change in the West during the Sixties where there was an impatience to be rid of the stultifying norms of previous eras the about-face to once again embrace the traditional outlooks of parents and grandparents might feel quite disconcerting. There was also a surge toward socialism and other changes of system that were looked upon as radical at the time. Free love, the use of recreational drugs was much more attractive, and an aversion to the normal - find a job - work 9 to 5 - settle down - start a family and live as your parents did, was virtually anathema.
Those days of the Sixties are long gone. The surge of freedom-loving anarchism and relatively innocent experimentation hardly survived into the Seventies. The relative innocence and simplicity of just a few years before vanished like morning mist in the full glare of midday. Only a very few found a way to maintain themselves in anything like an ‘alternative lifestyle’. Most rejoined the more or less normal like of the majority sooner or later and mostly sooner rather than later.
Traditional forms of life tend to be the archetypal form whose shape we tend to migrate toward unless we find some kind of niche in the rarified stratosphere of eccentric living within the arts, crafts, therapy, or religious life.
For most of us, the more or less standard life structure, as usually visualised, will likely suit us best. We are none too concerned if those on the fringes act as they wish as long as they don’t impact society and the life of the majority in too extreme a way. But just this is beginning to occur in the West, particularly so in the USA. The fringes are demanding to be mainstream and some within the mainstream elites appear to believe their rights ought to be raised above those of the majority who remain within a generally traditional lifestream. This is precisely what the Russian and Chinese authorities do not want and will not tolerate.
A kaleidoscope of emotional choices where outcomes are of questionable benefit but may sadly lead to a cul-de-sac of unhappy chaos where society becomes riven by internal discord and social atomization makes for a very unhappy existence, potentially for all.
Youthful folly is a known phenomenon. We normally grow out of such follies, taken on when we feel immortal and resistant to all that may hurt us. Societies that never outgrow the follies it takes on, but remain searching for eternal youth will likely stay in the kindergarten stage of interminable and extremely shallow-minded chaos where maturity never arrives. The big question is, can such societies ever return to the stable foundations that once were the norm and which allowed for unimpeded growth?
Eurasian nations are determined never to have to find out whether such levels of chaos can be reversed. They have seen how much pain is involved in such a process. They have decided to retain the tried and tested ways of life they know bring important unity of purpose, predictability, and stability to life. Thus they aim to guarantee that such debilitating anarchy as seen currently growing in the West has no fertile ground to undermine their own nations.
This is why we now see so very many nations of the Global South turning away from the West. Now a choice is open to them where in the past there were few to none but bow to the almighty USA and its proxies. Now that China is fully awake to its potential to change the way the world works along with Russia in a PEACEFUL and TOLERANT way, they are moving in their direction with alacrity.
This epoch-making time will shape all times to come. We stand on the threshold of a new age for our planet, one where agreement takes the place of aggression, peace over posturing, willingness to talk and understand over war. Cooperation, communication and tolerance for diverse peoples, cultures, modes of governance, religion and viewpoints where trade and investment create the world all idealists hoped for.
Welcome to our future.
Welcome to the Multipolar World.
