“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.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
How the West brought economic disaster on itself.
Article published by Russia Today (RT) - 14th March 2023:
Russia’s trade surplus hits record high.
The country’s exports surged nearly 20% despite Ukraine-related sanctions.
Russia’s foreign trade surplus soared last year, driven by gains in exports, data from the Federal Customs Service showed on Monday.
According to the agency, total exports in 2022 reached $591.4 billion, up 19.9% from 2021. Imports, meanwhile, slid 11.7% against the previous year to $259.1 billion. This brought the country’s trade surplus to a record of $332.38 billion, up 67% from $199.5 billion in 2021.
Russia’s foreign trade turnover increased by 8.1% compared to 2021, reaching $850.5 billion. Energy products made up the bulk of Russia’s foreign exports, comprising nearly 65%, and amounting to $383.73 billion. The figure rose 42.8% year-on-year despite Western sanctions imposed on Russian energy supplies, as Moscow actively redirected them towards Asian partners, most notably India and China.
Foodstuffs and agricultural raw materials exports were estimated at $41.3 billion, about 7% of total exports in monetary terms. Sales of ferrous metals, fertilizers, as well precious and semi-precious metals and stones amounted to $62.5 billion.
Industrial equipment and mechanical devices represented Russia’s biggest import at $47.3 billion worth of goods, or 18% of all imports. Moscow also imported $35.7 billion worth of food products and agricultural raw materials (13% of total imports) and $29.8 billion worth of electrical machinery and equipment (11.5%).
Western countries have passed ten rounds of Ukraine-related sanctions on Russia since last year, blacklisting hundreds of products which can no longer be sold to or bought from Russia, ranging from electronics to food.
Restrictions have also targeted Russian financial institutions, making it difficult for the country to conduct transactions internationally. However, Russia has been actively redirecting its exports and securing alternative markets for products it can no longer buy from the West, which, along with successful monetary policy, allowed the country to withstand sanctions pressure.
Russia’s Federal Customs Service stopped releasing trade statistics in March 2022, shortly after the initial impact of Western sanctions. However, the agency announced on Monday it will be partially resuming its statistics reports, which are now to be published monthly.

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.
UPDATES TO BE ADDED HERE AS AND WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS
IS THE WHOLE WORLD BEING THROWN UNDER A BUS BY JOE BIDEN?
Does Joe Biden care about anything except those things he perceives as the national interests of the USA?
It would appear not.
Reckless doesn’t quite cover his recent actions he took in concert with his brothers and sisters in sanctions across in Europe. Making as big an economic mess as possible seems to be the name of the game of Russian Roulette Biden is playing currently.
All those playing this dangerous and potentially fatal game in the last chance saloon are tagging along as they have done for decades now, indeed since the end of world war two. I wonder if they’d still tag along after Biden drags them into world war three? Will one or two make for those swinging doors before the shoot out begins? I wonder.
Biden has set an economic chain reaction going with his latest throw of the dice, to encourage ending Russian gas supplies. Who knows, Putin may agree to this request sooner than expected. He needs the European and North American markets right now like he needs a hole in the head such as one of the Ukrainian peace negotiators to intent on achieving that goal did.
The sanctions upon Russia have had the effect of sending the nations of the collective west into a tailspin. Russia on the other hand has just announced that it is doing better than ever economically. It appears that everything the western leaders do has had the opposite effect than that intended over the past 12 months.
Biden is of course a political thug of the old school, much used to being abrasive and creating policies that divided the USA rather than unite it. In his latest endeavours to continue pushing Russia into a corner in similar manner to his predecessors he has managed to put a bomb under Europe’s economic future as well as, in due course, under that of his own nation.
Is anybody in the West at all concerned about this? Has the economic blast that is still with them from Covid made them all punch-drunk and maniacally and wholly irresponsible, full of the glee of insanity… ready to throw whatever babies are necessary out with the bathwater? What gives. Anyone know?
What could be the overarching imperative issue that makes the possible ruination of our entire world “worth it”?
Retention of the level of global domination, power and influence over the planet that it now still has to an ever-lessening degree? The desire to keep the shekels rolling in that all that influence gains you when you are the big cheese, top dog and ones with constant pole position? The recognition, long held, that unless something is done China is going to get too big to compete against, manipulate or eliminate? The overwhelming need to destroy any and all elements that might someday merge to make a recurrence of 9/11 possible?
All of the above and more maybe?
When you are exceptional, superior to all others, keep telling yourself so and a huge proportion of your in-house mythology, legacy, status, income, self-view and the jollies you get from being powerful… could all disappear, eclipsed by those “Commies” might you indeed be capable of almost ANYTHING?
Even throwing the whole world under a bus in your absolute, desperate need to remain right where you feel it’s your inalienable right to be, the world’s police, judge, jury and executioner all rolled up into one?
