*** HUMILIATION FOR THE COLLECTIVE WEST IS ON ITS WAY ***
“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.

JEFFREY SACHS: DISGUSTING
Article published by Russia Today (RT) - 1st May 2023:
Hungary issues NATO rebuke to Zelensky.
Ukrainian president had publicly accused Budapest of behaving “inappropriately” for a NATO member.
Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has rebuked statements by Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, who has publicly accused Budapest of behaving “inappropriately” for a NATO member state.
It was “fortunately” not for Zelensky to decide on Hungary’s behavior, Szijjarto said in a Facebook post on Sunday, suggesting also that Budapest already provides enough support for Kiev.
“Hungarian people have already paid an extremely high price for this war,” Szijjarto wrote, adding that multiple representatives of Ukraine’s Hungarian ethnic minority had persisted in the ongoing hostilities between Kiev and Moscow.
“If this statement means ‘I respectfully thank the Hungarians for letting in and taking care of more than a million refugees from Ukraine, and I respectfully thank you for continuously sending aid’ then [the response is] ‘You are welcome and can count on us in the future as well.’
The sarcastic remarks by Hungary’s top diplomat apparently came in response to statements made by Zelensky in an interview with Nordic media outlets on Friday. The Ukrainian president accused Budapest of siding with Russia in the ongoing conflict and of treating NATO as an “adversary” altogether.
“It seems to me that confusion reigns among the Hungarian political elite. This is a very strange situation. Can a NATO country simultaneously be with Russia and against NATO?” Zelensky stated, adding that Budapest has been displaying “inappropriate behavior” for a member of the US-led NATO alliance.
Hungary has taken a reserved stance on the ongoing hostilities between Russia and Ukraine, which have been raging since February 2022. The country has opposed EU sanctions against Russia, particularly those harming its own interests, such as restrictions in the nuclear and conventional energy fields. Apart from that, Budapest has repeatedly said it will not support Ukraine’s applications to either NATO or the EU. Hungary has also refrained from providing military aid to Kiev and has refused to allow such shipments from elsewhere to flow through its territory.
Hungary and Ukraine have long been at odds over the fate of the ethnic Hungarian minority in Ukraine. Some 150,000 ethnic Hungarians, living primarily in the Transcarpathian region of the country, have been affected by the Ukrainianization efforts undertaken by the authorities of post-Maidan Ukraine. While the crackdown has primarily focused on Russian speakers, it affected other minorities as well.
Kiev, for its part, has long accused Budapest of meddling in the country’s domestic affairs, with its practice of issuing Hungarian passports to Ukraine’s ethnic Hungarians resulting in multiple diplomatic incidents.

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.

HYPOCRISY AND DOUBLE STANDARDS ARE INEVITABLE IN A UNIPOLAR WORLD
While both Britain and America happily supply weapons and logistics to help Saudi Arabia bomb some of the poorest people of the world in Yemen they are both up in arms about the Russian campaign in Ukraine. This raises many questions regarding both double standards and hypocrisy.
Who are the true perpetrators of the horrors of war in this world and who are those who get the blame?
In historical terms you don’t have very far to look for an answer to this question. Even recent history should bring the answer to mind immediately. One need only mention the names of certain nations. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria for example. However, the litany of names of nations attacked, subverted, undermined and with multiple fatalities, especially when it comes to the USA , is very long indeed. Chief among these is of course Vietnam.
But despite the history, despite the track record of Britain and the USA (colonialism, slavery, genocide) they find it an almost obsessive requirement that they point blood-soaked fingers elsewhere. Currently that elsewhere is Russia. Later it will be China.
What is usually heard from both the USA and UK is that they require to protect their ‘national interests’. This is perhaps all well and good, but at times it appears as if no other nation has a right to these but they. Only they are allowed; it seems, to have what they refer to as ‘spheres of influence’. Russia is certainly precluded from such a right. And also to any right of national security.
What is going on here?
It seems to me we are looking at a very long assertion of the rights of power. The nations in question have come to believe that they and they alone have the right to sit in judgement on the world, they and they alone are capable of assessing what is right and what is wrong and delivering the only valid punishment when they assess that a wrong has been done. We can clearly see then that in their estimation what is happening in Yemen is good and what is occurring in Ukraine is bad… VERY bad.
All is based on their interests of course, though they will deny this and instead speak of much more idealistic concepts. This is where their hypocrisy reaches its peak. Saudi Arabia is an extremely important ally to the USA and UK. Russia? Not so much. Ukraine is in their ‘sphere of influence’ now they will tell you (since the coup in Kiev in 2014) and no longer anything to do with Russia. Russia’s sphere of influence extends only to its borders and no further.
Asserting your own rights as supreme and in this case virtually, if not actually, worldwide, means you regard yourselves as ultimate arbiters, judge, jury and executioner, world dictators, police, unipolar power, hegemon… whatever form of words you wish to use.
Britain’s political and corporate elites have long believed that they have a natural (and racist) supremacy over all others. Likewise those of the USA see themselves as exceptional. (If you in particular are exceptional what does that make the rest? Unexceptional? The elite U.S. attitude appears to assert this, as does the U.S. foreign policy.)
In recent years the United Nations and International Law have inevitably been sidelined as U.S./UK supremacy has been asserted. The most obvious cause were the events which took place on the eleventh of September 2001…with the result being the ambition to gain ‘full spectrum dominance’. But as we have seen by the litany of past attacks on others (along with colonial ambitions and invasions) the somewhat fascistic views of those wielding supreme power over lesser nations and nationalities, has a much longer history.
The double standards and the hypocrisy that flows from them are inevitable where you have those asserting their right to be rulers of a unipolar world. How could it be otherwise? They are always in the right due to their sworn determination and requirement to protect their national interests within their sphere of influence… and that sphere of influence is quite clearly worldwide.
