“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.

MICHAEL PARENTI: NATO DESTROYS NATIONS
Article published by Russia Today (RT) - 28th March 2023:
The EU is losing relevance in the emerging new world.
Russia and China are shaping global politics while the US dominates its partners across the Atlantic, leaving European countries as mere passengers.
The meeting of Russian president Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in Moscow last week was met with predictable accusations in Western circles that Moscow was becoming “subservient” or even a “vassal” of Beijing.
MEP Guy Verhofstadt, a Euro-fantasist and former prime minister of Belgium, jeered on Twitter, “Putin's appalling legacy now includes turning Russia more and more into a Chinese vassal state,” oblivious to the irony of his own words. As the United States took the lead in denouncing China’s peace plan for the Ukraine conflict, publicly setting out the conditions on which it should end, the European Union was nowhere to be seen, or at least had nothing original to say.
This makes Verhofstadt’s comments a damning display of lacking self-awareness. Russia and China are setting out their vision for a new multipolar world, while the US struggles against them in seeking to maintain its hegemonic position. Meanwhile, the European Union has been reduced to the status of a mere bench player in it all, and has become effectively irrelevant. The failure of EU countries to stake out their own will and position amidst the larger powers, as well as their total subservience to the US, has made a mockery of the “strategic autonomy” concept once championed by Emmanuel Macron.
“Strategic autonomy” is a principle of European integration where the EU should be an actor in a multipolar world, which advocates for its own interests and pursues its own agenda. Supporters of this principle insist that the EU should not blindly follow the will of the US when it comes to every foreign policy issue, but should be proactive and enhance its role on the world stage. Therefore, they should not, as is commonly demanded by Washington, take sides on matters such as a new Cold War with China. The term gained growing traction during the years of the Trump administration, when Europe’s relations with the US hit a low due to his particular interpretation of the “America first” doctrine.
However, the practical reality of “strategic autonomy” is that the EU is not a unitary state, but a loose intergovernmental organization of states which, while seeking to establish common positions on a principle of unity, do not truly have a unified foreign-policy-making mechanism. The intra-institutional politics of the EU are often a messy compromise and battle of wills between different levels of actors, including the states themselves, the European Commission, and the European Parliament. This combines with the reality that “European integration” has been a broken process since 2008. Challenges such as the Eurozone financial crisis, Brexit, Covid-19, and internal conflicts with various states such as Poland have all weakened and fractured the EU.
As a result, the EU has been ill-suited to deal with what is, despite media misdirection, the single most explicit source of foreign influence and interference against it, the US. Washington has multiple channels whereby it exerts control over the EU’s many foreign policy actors. Firstly, it uses a web of government-funded think tanks and associated journalists to control public opinion and steer EU countries towards supporting its objectives. Secondly, the US has an extraordinarily political hold over the former Soviet bloc states to the east of the EU (with the exception of Hungary), which it uses to foment increased antagonism against Russia and China, and therefore undermines the attempts of the bloc’s most “autonomous” and powerful states – Germany and France – to pursue more reconciliatory foreign policies.
Thirdly, the US uses the United Kingdom as its primary cheerleader in Europe (be it from within or without the EU) to project its political will onto the continent and override the will of any defiant member states. An example of this is the BBC World Service acting as a massive propaganda machine to push narratives in line with Washington’s foreign policies. Additionally, the US has shown an ability to work with and weaponize the intelligence services of member states against their own countries, such as using Danish intelligence to spy on other European leaders.
Through all these factors, both past and present, the US has been able to keep Europe divided, conflicted, and seemingly unable to pursue any foreign policy which actually meets European interests, as opposed to those of the US. This has culminated even to the extent of literally destroying the Nord Stream pipelines and then propagating a false narrative that Ukraine was responsible. The Ukraine war has ultimately only accelerated the isolation and irrelevance of Europe, which has strengthened the hold of the military-industrial complex over the continent, undermined its energy industries, and thus converted the term “strategic autonomy” into a laughing stock.
One might ask, who is truly the vassal? If a new multipolar world is emerging, it’s fair to say, Europe simply isn’t part of it. Russia, China, and America are the drivers of current events, the EU is but a passenger.

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.

THE WEST’S POLITICAL KAMIKAZE CREW ARE COMMITTING HARA KIRI OVER UKRAINE
Western elites have a death wish. They are apparently determined to do the deed. Just as the most hopeless human who sees no possible future for him or herself. The only question at this point in time is which weapon or poison to use to get it over with.
In the case of the elites of the collective West there have been an almost endless array of weapons with which to off themselves. Western minds have been busy working out the exact methodologies with which to destroy their economies. These have been social, financial, political and economic and they have scraped the bottom of every barrel to get to them. They are all gone now it seems… save one.
By putting a cap on Russian oil and blocking the sale of oil via a third party they may well have found the silver bullet that will deliver itself through their thick, collective economic cranium and administer the final coup de grâce that finally does for them. But what of the collateral damage?
Do these leaders care at all what happens to those they are politically charged to care for? Do they spare any of their time obsessed with their suicidal policies to think of them at all. What happens when the blowback reaches chain-reaction status and wave after wave of toxic price rises blow just about everybody’s house down? Where will the culprits be? In some bunker giving Sieg Heil salutes a la Adolf?
Obsession can be a helluva destructive thing. When you feel mortally slighted by someone and are rabidly focused on getting your own back by any manner of means it can lead you into massively adding to that sore nose or hurt pride. You can easily end up flat on your back. There are times to realise when you are better off getting over it and turning your attention to other things instead. Unless you are seeking suicide that is. Then go on standing in front of the guy who harmed you and give him what you think is a hard punch to the belly. The likelihood is that he hardly feels it. And then you find yourself on the sidewalk with a bloody nose and reeling head (at best).
Biden is a man obsessed with harming Russia due to his pet project (in which he has so much invested) being given a body blow after attempting to arrange a hit on Russia’s relatives. His anger overlooks the reasons behind Russia’s actions, to them he is totally blind. The red mist is permanently down over his eyes and those of all his western gang. ‘Get Russia’ is all that permeates their raging bull brains night and day. They can think of nothing else. And this blindness, this absolute myopia, is not conducive to acting wisely. Insight is reduced to almost nil. Tactical nous also. All that’s left to these bozos is a permanently bad temper and irrational rage that they feed to greater heights each day that dawns.
Collectively they are an accident waiting to happen and in fact they are regular ‘guests’ in the emergency units of their capital cities. Black eyes, multiple bruises, broken legs, concussion… almost every medical condition caused by blunt instruments and hard, well-trained fists have not taught them the required lesson yet. Still they go back for further beatings. Time and time again they are left sprawling on the sidewalk. Gluttons for punishment, almost masochistic in their seeming need to be bludgeoned to near death.
The final straw to break the backs of these bloodthirsty camels may well be the oil price cap scheme that they have decided upon. If enacted, Russia will certainly cut off the oil these nations require so that the gears of their industries continue to run rather than grind down to useless hunks of metal. It truly appears that these punch-drunk losers don’t know when to quit. Perhaps they just want to see their economies die and just have it over with. They can turn around and say, “Well, we did our best!”
What will be the reaction of those they reduced to penury in the process?
Perhaps to see about getting these wannabe, kamikaze, braindead bozos their suicidal wish?
