“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 men & 3 women died, all civilians.

NATO majors float Ukraine negotiations plan – WSJ.
UK, France and Germany reportedly offered weapons and security commitments as a way of starting talks with Russia.
London has proposed giving Kiev even more weapons and security guarantees just short of membership in the US-led military bloc, in order to encourage negotiations with Moscow, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. Paris and Berlin reportedly support the initiative and have already advised President Vladimir Zelensky to talk, though he has refused.
Though French President Emmanuel Macron has publicly called for “a military offensive which pushes back the Russian front in order to open the way for a return to negotiations,” he has privately advised Zelensky to make “difficult decisions,” according to officials who spoke to the Journal.
Over dinner at the Elysee Palace earlier this month, Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz told Zelensky he needed to start considering peace talks, according to people familiar with the conversation. London, Paris and Berlin would not comment on the record.
“We keep repeating that Russia mustn’t win, but what does that mean? If the war goes on for long enough with this intensity, Ukraine’s losses will become unbearable,” a senior French official told the Journal. “And no one believes they will be able to retrieve Crimea.”
As a way to encourage Zelensky, the outlet said, British PM Rishi Sunak has put together a plan to give Kiev “broader access to advanced military equipment, weapons and ammunition,” to be considered at the NATO summit in July.
“The NATO summit must produce a clear offer to Ukraine, also to give Zelensky a political win that he can present at home as an incentive for negotiations,” an unnamed British official told the outlet. If Moscow sees that the West is prepared to support Kiev even more, maybe it will be persuaded it can’t achieve its military objectives, the official added.
France and Germany support the initiative and see it as a way to “boost Ukrainian confidence” and give it an incentive to start negotiations with Russia, according to unnamed officials from both countries.
Sunak’s plan does not include stationing NATO forces in Ukraine or offering Kiev “Article 5” commitments to intervene in case of an attack, the officials said. Ukrainian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrey Melnik said it was a good first step, but that Kiev needed “a clear commitment that it does not exclude NATO membership, which is the only solution for a lasting peace.”
On Friday, the Russian Foreign Ministry listed its conditions for the diplomatic solution of the conflict, which included the West ending its “supply of weapons and mercenaries” to Kiev and Ukraine returning to neutrality after being demilitarized and “denazified.”
Meanwhile, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said that Russia is winning the logistical war of attrition, leaving it unclear how much the US-led bloc could spare for Ukraine in terms of weapons and ammunition.
Zelensky has rejected any negotiations with Moscow, saying on Friday that “There is nothing to talk about and nobody to talk about over there.”

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.

JOE BIDEN IS UNFIT FOR ANY FORM OF EMPLOYMENT, CERTAINLY NOT THE JOB HE HAS
Joe Biden could easily get you killed. Are you happy knowing this thought? And you do know it, don’t you? The man is obsessed with Ukraine. Rabidly obsessed with it to the exclusion of all else. As various facilities across the USA go up in flames, where is he? He is with a petty dictator who has jailed his main political opponent and closed down every radio and television station that disagrees with him.
And in both cases we are told this is the wondrous thing known as democracy in action. Well how much say did YOU have in this? I suppose it is our democratic right now to be reduced to a smoking pile of ash on our patio as we watch that distant flash. That’s not a democracy that I feel any relation to. How about you?
No one wants to harp on about a man who can’t seem to climb any set of stairs without collapsing or who doesn’t seem to know where he is half the time, how to get off a stage after fifteen minutes of mumbling incoherently, or attempting to shake hands with some invisible person to his right or left that only he can “see”... but come on, this is the leader of what we must all (apparently) call ‘The Free World’ again.
Biden is in a delusory state of mind that every once in a while causes an eruption of hatred within him. This was seen just recently when he made his ‘State of the Union’ address. The man who used to be a well known political thug has become a completely negative force not only in respect of America’s crumbling infrastructure and social decay but on the world stage also. He is driving a cartload of rabidly insane neocons toward Armageddon, all screaming in unison for “More War!”
Meanwhile we are expected to believe the skewed narratives, false timeline and demonizing rhetoric of this insane brigade’s views on Vladimir Putin and Russia. Putin, who would be the only adult in the same room as them, remains cool, calm and collected, especially by comparison with Biden’s horde of political mongrels.
What is the TRUE position in regard to Russia then if these Armageddon zealots are so very insane to their core?
The fact is that Russia was left with no other choice by a concerted campaign by successive western powers and their minions who pushed Russia further and further into a corner from which its special military campaign was the only viable way out.
Russia had spent the previous seven years attempting to move Ukraine and its western sponsors along a pathway to peace and reconciliation only to find that it had been tricked. The statements in recent times by both Angela Merkel and the Ukrainian president at the time the Minsk Agreements were signed and ratified by the United Nations show this. They used the Minsk Accords as a way to buy time for the rearmament of the Ukrainian army, the training of its troops to NATO standards and to prepare for a military operation to take the territory of the Russian-speaking peoples of eastern Ukraine back by force.
The goal remains to deny them their language, culture and affiliations, to repress their pro-Russian feelings, even among the many Ukrainian-Russian mixed families. Russia tried to move the peace process forward so that the Russian-speaking people of the Donbass would gain autonomy enough to be safe from repression within Ukraine.
Putin denied their initial request to join Russia. The western powers were uninterested in peace however and this was shown once again last March when the two sides were close to an agreement. Boris Johnson stepped in to arm-twist Zelensky in dropping the negotiations and continuing the war. The West bears the heavy responsibility of guilt for this conflict from 2014 and even before in 2004 with its interference that brought about the 'Orange Revolution'.
Historians will know who to point the finger at. The USA and Britain primarily and the nations of the European Union. Russia was left with no way out but this. Zelensky wanted nukes, Ukraine had become a de facto NATO state and the threat to the Russian people in the years ahead was clear. The West didn't want peace, they wanted to weaken Russia and then carve it up.
Russia could not countenance this and took this action which has its anniversary tomorrow. We support you Russia against all the lies. You did what you had to, reluctantly but with dedication to the security in perpetuity of the Russian people.
These are the facts. And the fact is that Biden should be at least on a psychologist’s couch if not within a high security mental hospital being treated by the world’s best practitioner of psychiatry. The very place where he should not be is in the highest office of the land known as the USA. Not where he can drive the present insanity which he has spread across Europe as well as his own nation. The man is deranged and should be taken into a darkened room, calmed to sleep and then have a straitjacket gently placed upon him. It’s time. He must go, not Vladimir Putin. Him.
Preferably before the S.OB. gets us all killed.
