Coach Red Pill AKA Gonzalo Lira has gone AWOL, and is presumed dead or captured.

Coach was broadcasting from the Ukraine, mostly from Kharkov, since the beginning of the conflict, giving critical commentary on the conflict. We’ve posted a lot of his material here.

He would also say that if you didn’t hear from him in 12 hours, assume he’s dead or captured, and we’ve now not heard from him for more than 72 hours. His Telegram and all social media has gone dark.

He missed an appearance on George Galloway’s show on Friday. Galloway mentioned this again on Sunday.

Ukraine Maps on Twitter has been covering this.

There are rumors that he’s dead.

But it’s safe to assume there would be rumors that he is dead even if he wasn’t dead, so I’m not sure that means much until we get some kind of confirmation. I’m not really sure what a confirmation would look like, because if Azov/SBU is following this chatter, they might just claim they killed him even if they didn’t. The Ukraine has repeatedly claimed to have killed Russian generals that turned up alive.

There’s not really much else to report here. I’m just giving an update. It’s not clear if he’s dead.

It’s possible he’s just holed up somewhere without any internet after bombings in Kharkov. There was fighting in Kharkov over the weekend, and as stated above, in his last known communications, he could hear fighting.

That said, there do appear to be people using the internet from Kharkov.

Also, he was saying that people from the Ukraine were trying to kill him. He was telling stories about how he was like, climbing out of windows to escape assassins and so on. Maybe he was embellishing some of that, but he was definitely in Kharkov, he proved that repeatedly, and he was definitely speaking out against the Zelensky terror machine, both on Telegram and other social media and on Russian and international TV. So I don’t really see any reason why the Ukrainians wouldn’t be trying to kill or capture him.

The Ukraine has a policy of killing any journalists they see. They’ve killed several mainstream journalists from Western outlets. They attacked a Fox News vehicle and killed two people and blew off the legs of a Fox reporter who had been a regular on the scene.

Fox is obviously supporting the Zelensky terrorist regime and Azov, they just don’t want anyone filming anything that is happening. So there is no reason to doubt that they were hunting Coach.

    He has American citizenship, so the SBU wouldn’t kill him without asking the Americans first. If he was killed, it was under CIA/Pentagon orders or by mistake or during capture. Things are chaotic in Ukraine so it could be by mistake. Still it’s more likely he was just captured or kidnapped and is being held in order to shut him up.

    He took a pretty crazy risk going to Kharkov after the war started. Not sure what he was thinking, especially knowing the nature of the Ukraine regime, and even besides that, Kharkov might become a battleground like Mariupol at some point. I’m sure 90% of the people there would want to get out of Ukraine if possible.

  2. Anonymous[139] • Disclaimer says:

    I read a Telegram message a few hours ago that said that on Robert Barnes’ podcast six hours prior that Barnes said he had communicated with Gonzalo two hours before his (Barnes) show that and his (Gonzalo) power and internet was out. But Barnes makes no mention of this on his Twitter account and actually retweeted Dan Cohen’s tweet about Gonzalo being in trouble. Disinfo is even planted on Telegram.

    Gonzalo’s staying in Ukraine and broadcasting stuff which was anti-Zelensky made me believe the situation was maybe not as FUBAR as it seems and the neo-Nazi secret police are not, well, like the SS Einsatzgruppen, as portrayed by pro-Russia Telegram accounts.

    Now I can’t help but think how reckless (or courageous) Gonzalo was in the thick of things throwing caution to the wind. He’s a smart (Ivy League grad), rich, and worldly, he had to have known how risky it was for him.

    Let’s pray he is alive and well and makes his way to a more hospitable locale.

    I just watched a livestream podcast from The Duran. Under questioning from subscribers, the two Alex’s repeatedly said that they have no idea of Lira’s whereabouts, and are naturally very concerned for him, as I think all of us who read Anglin are.

    But I think Galloway was incorrect to say that Lira was “trapped” in Kharkov. The Coach had chances to get out of Ukraine before the war started but told the Alex’s he would stay in the Belly of the Beast, no matter the consequences for his safety, to keep reporting the truth about Ukraine’s war criminals – flooded with weapons by the war criminals in NATO, led, as always, by the war criminals in Washington, DC.

    Surely, Zelensky’s henchmen knew of Lira’s whereabouts, he said what city he was reporting from, so it was a matter of time before they got to him. I doubt if the neo-Nazis would have captured him alive – dead men don’t talk. As for the Ukies asking for permission from the evil Biden regime to kill him, since Lira is a US citizen, that seems like a naive suggestion. The Biden regime will not tolerate any opposition, especially pertaining to its war policy. There may have been a considerable bounty on his head,

  6. RobinG says:

    Actually, it was Gonzalo who said (in so many words) that Zelensky’s goons (his term) were comparable to SS Einsatzgruppen. He was stunned when they executed the mayor of that town a while ago. But I’ve wondered about power and internet as the fighting stepped up in Kharkov.

    He’s very dead, yes.

    When the Ukraine claims this general or that is dead, they know the general himself isn’t going to show up on twitter and refute the claim. Someone has to identify him, which is a single step of inference, which is too much work for most twitter readers. By contrast if this guy shows up to refute the claim, it is sufficiently obvious.

    The Ukraine has a policy of killing any journalists they see.

  9. Kharkov will be returning to Russia. The offensive has been ramping up in the area and after Donbass its next. This means Uke atrocities against civilians will massively escalate as they have shown throughout the conflict. When they are losing they murder. They just decided to silence Gonzalo so he could not report on what will happen. That is, if he is indeed gone, as seems more likely than not.

    Unlikely. (Intel runs things in Ukraine, not State. Intel no doubt want GL out of the picture ASAP.)
    Also, USG wants plausible deniability the best way of getting which is to simply keep them out of it altogether, thank you very much.

  14. I followed him on Telegram and Youtube. He was always truthful, very intelligent in his analysis and hugely entertaining, although he claimed to be neutral, he was dead set against the Uknazis. And I think the Azov thugs have him.

    Being an American citizen, or from another “Western” country, does not necessarily save you in those situations. For example, a US citizen was killed in Brazil by the police in 1935 after being detained in relation to a failed Communist rebellion there. He was probably a Comintern agent. Killing him caused the Brazilian government some embarrassment but with time it blew over.

    I would not worry all that much, but personally I did ask myself why he did everything in his power to piss the ukrainian globalist nazis off that much…Compensating much, I wonder? He did say that smart guys are cowards one time, so maybe he felt compelled to make up for some spinelessness in his past. Showbusiness people do have a chip on their shoulder, after all.

  27. The Ukraine has a policy of killing any journalists they see. They’ve killed several mainstream journalists from Western outlets. They attacked a Fox News vehicle and killed two people and blew off the legs of a Fox reporter [Benjamin Hall] who had been a regular on the scene.

    For what it’s worth, Fox’s own report of the incident blames the Russians rather than the Ukrainians. The brief article on Hall in Sayanim Central, aka Wikipedia, finds itself unable to explicitly lay blame on either side while coyly hinting in every way that the Russians did the deed. Even the linked story from the Washington Post says only that “the Ukrainian Defense Ministry attributed the deaths at the time to Russian forces.” How’s that for an objective source!

    My inclination is to side with Anglin’s assignment of responsibility to the Ukrainians, but it would be helpful if Hall himself or someone else at or near the scene of the event came clean.

    While I’m here, I just want to remind Anglin that his website is managed by a trans-Ukrainian Nazi. So every time Daily Stormer writes something about the evils of Ukraine, it’s writing about the operator of the Daily Stormer.

    In one of his talks he mentioned in passing that one time he was returning home/apartment building or something, and he noticed there were an unusually large number of vehicles in his neighborhood. Gonzalo says he doesn’t speak Ukrainian, and there was this guy, a neighbor I guess — who didn’t speak English — and he told Gonzalo one word: “Banderistas !”. So Gonzalo got the Hell outta there.

    He was also very careful to conceal the locations he was livestreaming from, so he knew UkroNazis were after him. If they were looking for him, they may have found him. It’s not difficult, if you are the State and the guy you are looking for is one lone guy (… support network).

Lira was part of that manosphere back then, although he scrubbed all his videos. Well, he took his own advice and look where he is now–either in a jail cell or a shallow grave. (Shorting Eastern Europe in 2016 would have been a good plan)

    Someone pointed out that he has kids in Ukraine. A good father would get them the hell out, not pimp them so he could make weird videos with his trademark verbal tic “mmm-hmmm” that he delivers every time he makes a point. I have no dog on this fight so I don’t care who the bad guy is, so his videos mean nothing to me. In any case he’s not making points I can’t read in other venues.

  34. “SS Einsatzgruppen” over and over again. Look, comparing these NEO-Nazis in Ukraine today with the National Socialists running Germany before and during WW2 is a very big stretch. Far too many divergent details to be an apples and apples situation. Best left for a real history class. Trouble is, everyone seems to be attempting to relive WW2 all over again in spite of their obvious lack of knowledge of the facts. I very definitely would have supported the Germans back then. Today, I just as definitely don’t support those running the show in Ukraine. As an aside and I will keep this simple here. The Einsatzgruppen were devised to protect the flanks of the German Army groups as they fought in Russia. That’s it. They weren’t devised as some sort of crazed marauders there to exterminate Jews. Atrocities took place on both sides and especially on the Eastern front and the Einsatzgruppen certainly committed a few. Let’s not forget however, that when mercs, partisans, sappers, whatever you want to call them, attack your mainline forces, the Geneva conventions do not apply and you can liquidate these people as you see fit. I’ll end it there save to say I’m becoming beyond fed up with people allowing their emotions to rule over their intellect and far too often expose how little they actually know about ground level WW2 combat history.

    One report claimed Gonzalo was nabbed while out shopping, another that he was picked up at home. Last week I had a terrible premonition that something bad was going to happen to him, so I left a comment on his channel pleading with him to get the hell out. I even worked out a route to get the 20 odd kilometres by going North East to the Russian border through a mainly forested area with Belgorod another 20 on the other side.

    There were signs that the stress was getting to him (body language, same shirt every day, unshaven, very aware of noises around the apartment) and I think that when you take that amount of stress over a period you can suddenly lose the clarity of mind and the energy you need to save yourself. In a war zone with multiple checkpoints and armed guys looking out for him he would have needed help. Oh to have been younger!

    Gonzalo’s big mistakes were debunking the Bucha “massacre,” ( actually conducted by the SBU unit “Safari” against “Russian collaborators”), his thorough analysis of the phony Ukrainian propaganda videos of burned out “Russian tanks” all shot at the same location, and in exposing the alleged US mercenary/freedom fighter James Vazquez as a fraud and liar.

    It’s true partisan fighters are not covered by the Geneva Convention. Individuals undertaking military action without military training or uniforms are considered unlawful combatants and are subject to summary execution when apprehended. Organized bands that commit acts of sabotage are considered civil criminals, liable to prosecution by civil or military authorities if captured alive.

    Before we talk about the German Einsatzgruppen as the most murderous fiends ever, we ought to remember the CIA’s Operation Phoenix in Vietnam. The CIA did what the Germans supposedly did, rounded up and killed intellectuals, Marxists, trade unionists, students, politicians, any and all Vietnamese they assessed capable of leading effective popular resistance to the genocidal US invasion that killed so many millions of their countrymen.

    A friend of mine was a Marine at that time; he told me when he realized the people he was rounding up and delivering to the spooks were being murdered, his conscience demanded he volunteer instead for field patrol, where he was seriously wounded.

The accelerating hysteria on GloboHomos part is due to the fact that their policies aren’t working anymore. Their ideologies and attendant policies are sick, unnatural, and twisted. The Globohomo faction is against EVERYTHING that is sane and healthy. So they are failing now.

We know cornered animal, no matter how sick and injured, can be extremely dangerous. GloboHomo has cornered themselves. They think they hold power and their power is inviolable due to their mechanisms of money control, and all the tech involved in monitoring – but they are wrong. Their power is fracturing NOW. They’ve made a very bad mistake with the Jewkraine, and the promotion of Tranny Supremacy. They are failing and it’s so close now….be ready for what comes next. We need to show them, when the time comes, the same level of tender mercy they’ve shown us. And more.

  83. Gonzalo Lira loved the Ukraine and the Ukrainians, he just hated what had become of it/them. If the evil Azov got him they would have tortured him for days. Coach Red Pill is an internet hero.

    A note on journalists in war zones:

    Journalists could easily be mistaken for target spotters and damage assessors serving the enemy, which they could be doing intentionally or inadvertently. In the age of internet and instant access by anybody to reports from the war zone enemy military intelligence could glean useful information about the effectiveness of its bombings as well as other valuable information.

    Even what Patrick Lancaster reports could be of some use to the Ukrainian side but he works as an embedded journalist with the LDNR militia and presumably has their permission to do whatever he does and so would not be blamed if the Ukrainians corrected the aim on their artillery to hit some target. There was an interesting report he made at the start of the war from a school in Donetsk which was used as a recruitment centre by the LDNR militia where he was interviewing the volunteers. Then almost the next day a school in Donetsk was bombed by the Ukrainians and he was almost immediately on the site reporting on the damage. Obviously the LDPR know that the world is watching his reports and would have moved their recruitment centre, and could be cleverly using his reporting to guide Ukrainian military to bomb a school so it could be reported as a war crime. Very tricky. He always makes a point of precisely reporting the addresses of places and buildings he films which could be very useful for targeting and damage assessment and he also gives names of people and doesn’t hide the faces of the LDNR militias. But as I said he most definitely has the permission of the LDNR mitia to do this as they watch his reports, and if they didn’t approve of this they would have stopped him.

    Of course many Red Cross, OSCE, UN and other agents of international organisations and NGO workers are just operatives and spies in the service of the Five Eyes, US, NATO and Western governments rather than impartial observers and independent actors.

    The whole of Western foreign policy has nothing to do with the well being of our countries and our economies and our people. So forget about political right and left. The whole thing is controlled by an alliance of our underworld secret/security agencies and other groups including politicians, staff and financial groups who want the domination, the absolute control of society, for many different reasons.

    From Vietnam to Pakistan the underworld forces are forcing an agenda of “choose between chaos or domination”. That is what my eyes are waking to after watching international events from the side for the last 65 years.

    The so-called security agencies and laws are playing a very negative role in our socieries, I would say they are like cancer tumors; they rely on intimidation, thugs and they operate outside of the law and in the dark.

    Since he didn’t speak the language he couldn’t have got much info from the local TV and radio, and since he was mostly holed up in his flat he must have got most of his information from the internet, and he could have done the same from anywhere in the world. He was basically acting as an analyst and internet commentator and didn’t really need to be there to do that job. But he happened to be in the Ukraine when the operation started and didn’t want to leave while he could have. Of course we don’t know what he did when he went out but other than the one time he went for a very long walk I doubt he would have repeated it. It can be very dangerous for a foreigner just to go around filming in a war zone, especially without official press accreditation, as some locals could mistake you for a target locator and damage assessor for the other side, especially if your views appear more sympathetic to the enemy that those behind whose lines you happen to be.

    Most people have the most idiotic ideas of the war, the Jewosphere outside the U.S.S.R. calling it WWII, the U.S.S.R. having called their alliance with Germany a pact of steel, featuring joint victory celebrations in Poland by German National Socialists and Jewish Bolsheviki (Stalin was yet to start to demote them, see the photos from the joint parade, funny).

    In Japan, the Great East Asian War and Pacific War are separated by different words.

    In my opinion, the world would be a much better place if Germany, late Stalinist U.S.S.R. and Japan had formed an alliance.

    British prisoners can bring down the Russophobic wave of London

    British fighters Sean Pinner (left) and Aiden Eslin decided to help Ukraine on the battlefield

    Interrogations of captured British mercenaries Sean Pinner and Aiden Eslin should be conducted publicly and even “stream” them online, according to Russian media managers. By their surrender, Pinner and Eslin “created a powerful informational occasion for Russian propaganda,” members of the British parliament echo them. How could the Russian side make the most effective use of the trump card that fell into its hands in the information war?

    On Tuesday, the Telegram channel “Unofficial Bezsonov” presented a recording of a conversation held with one of the BBC producers by British Marine Aiden Eslin, who surrendered to Russian troops in Mariupol last week. Eslin asks his interlocutor in London to arrange an interview and warns that he intends to publicly ask Prime Minister Boris Johnson to help him return home. A similar request concerns another British prisoner, Sean Pinner.

    At the end of the conversation, Eslin asks to be broadcast, but the interlocutor refuses to promise anything. Apparently, the BBC management did not dare to give Eslin the floor – in any case, no announcements of such a conversation appeared in the broadcast of the Broadcasting Corporation.

    The official point of view of London about the prisoners was expressed by one of the members of the government, Brandon Lewis. “It’s always terrible to see someone being taken hostage, especially the British military. The Government always pays special attention to such issues, and the Prime Minister maintains constant contact with colleagues and partners around the world – both through NATO and directly with President Zelensky. We will do everything possible to help any British citizen,” Lewis told Sky News.

    At the same time, the minister evaded the question of whether London is negotiating an exchange. “They shouldn’t have been there. Being there is a violation of the law,” TASS quotes Lewis. – Of course, everyone will sympathise with the people who are being held hostage, but it is necessary to follow the correct procedures, work properly with the current situation and properly assist the Ukrainian armed forces, the government and the people. So that it would really be useful for them.”

    “The scandal is that ordinary citizens of the United Kingdom will now understand that Pinner and Eslin went to the Ukrainian conflict zone not on their own initiative. First of all, they took such a step under the influence of the agitation of the British government,” said State Duma deputy, political strategist Oleg Matveichev.

    “At the same time, it is useless to put pressure on the British elites with the help of these two prisoners – they have been pursuing an anti-Russian policy for 500 years and are not going to change it. The only thing we can do is to show other countries how the Anglo–Saxon world – in this case Britain – deals with its ordinary citizens. This is where you can achieve a greater media effect,” the expert believes. If the exchange does not take place, prisoners of war may face trial, and not in Russia, but in the DPR, where the death penalty is allowed. “The DPR has already said that they can subject these Britons to a military trial,” the expert recalled.

    For London, this is a really difficult problem, admits former diplomat, member of the House of Lords of Parliament Peter Ricketts (in 2010-2012, national security adviser to the Prime Minister).

    “I am sure that these two men went there with the best intentions and wanted to help Ukraine, but I recall that the British authorities strongly advised the citizens of the kingdom not to go to Ukraine to participate in hostilities and warned that the British government could not help them in any way if they were in trouble, which in the end happened,” Ricketts said. He complained that Pinner and Eslin “created a powerful informational occasion for Russian propaganda.”

    Alexander Malkevich, a member of the Public Chamber of Russia, a journalist, partly agrees with Ricketts. He believes that in terms of information, the authorities of Russia and the DPR should use the figures of Pinner and Eslin “to the fullest.”

    “Interrogations of British prisoners can be conducted publicly and even streamed. Then it would be necessary to convene a large press conference with the involvement of foreign media. And let the conference be moderated by famous people who speak English fluently,” the interlocutor suggests.
    “The audience both in Russia and in the English-speaking world should hear personally from the British who recruited them and how, on what conditions, how much money was promised for service, as well as other details. This is our trump card in the information war and we should not be shy about it. This is our “control weapon” in a situation when Boris Johnson’s ratings in the UK tend to zero, he has a bad situation inside the ruling party and local elections are imminent. The testimony of Pinner and Eslin is just what Johnson lacks for complete unhappiness,” Malkevich told the newspaper Vzglyad.

    The second trump card of Russia, according to Malkevich, is the fact that Pinner and Eslin were actually abandoned in their homeland, which follows from Lewis’ statements. “Now Pinner and Eslin should understand that they were abandoned both in London and in Kiev,” he added.

    The British government tried to rally the nation with horror stories about the “Russian threat”, but now such tools may be useless – because Britain is waiting for an unprecedented energy crisis, says Kira Godovanyuk, a leading researcher at the Centre for British Studies at the Institute of Europe of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

    “The country has been in recession since last year because of Brexit and the pandemic, the incomes of the population are steadily falling. But now the economic crisis is intensifying further due to anti-Russian sanctions. In particular, they ricocheted to an increase in fuel prices,” the expert said. As a result, recent opinion polls show that in society “the refrigerator has begun to win out over the TV” – that is, the real financial difficulties caused by the anti-Russian campaign are more important for people than abstract solidarity with Ukrainians.

    There is indeed growing scepticism in British public opinion about any form of military and other assistance to Ukraine, as well as about the economic war with Russia. According to The Sunday Telegraph, now only 36% of Britons are ready to accept the increase in fuel prices as a result of tough anti-Russian sanctions. For comparison: in March, this opinion was held by 50% of the inhabitants of the kingdom.

    Meanwhile, the British press is closely following the misadventures of two captured British Marines. In particular, the situation around them is actively monitored by the BBC, the Sky News channel and The Guardian newspaper.

    On Monday, Pinner’s relatives, by the way, a native of the English county of Bedfordshire, expressed hope for his speedy return to his homeland. Their statement was published by the PI-hey (as received) agency. According to the agency, the family is working with the British Foreign Office together with relatives of Eslin, a native of Nottinghamshire. Earlier, we will remind you, on the air of the Russian TV channel “Russia 1” Pinner and Eslin asked Boris Johnson to facilitate their exchange for Ukrainian parliamentarian Viktor Medvedchuk, who was arrested in Kiev.

    Eslin’s mother Angela Wood told Sky News that “her son should be treated as a legitimate prisoner of war – after all, the Russian media suggested that he was a mercenary.” “He was there for four years and is a “legitimate” Ukrainian marine,” the woman says. Relatives of Pinner, who – coincidentally or not – also arrived in Ukraine four years ago, also insist that “Sean liked the Ukrainian way of life, and for the last four years he considered Ukraine his adopted country.”

    Special emphasis is placed on the fact that both Britons married Ukrainian women. But the main thing is that they “legally” served in the AFU.

    However, in his Telegram channel, military commander Yevgeny Poddubny offered to exchange British mercenaries “for bastards who abused Russian prisoners of war.” Earlier, Poddubny also cited data that Pinner and Eslin had previously been seen in Syria as part of the Kurdish YPG people’s self-defence unit. “Also, according to some reports, Pinner managed to be of note in Bosnia in 1994. I think that in the story with these characters, the fingerprints of British intelligence can be detected,” the military commander noted.

    Meanwhile, judging by the data of the Telegram channel “Rybar”, other compatriots of Pinner and Eslin continue to arrive in Ukraine – their new group appeared in Nikolayev. “Not so long ago, a former Bundeswehr serviceman and the head of the PMSC (private military and security company) 22ND Range Feat Philip Derr was spotted there. And yesterday, the famous Ukrainian blogger Vitaly Bogomolov posted photos and videos of unknown English-speaking mercenaries on his Instagram*,” Rybar reports.

    “Intelligence data allow us to talk about thousands of mercenaries who have flocked to Ukraine from all corners of the globe,” Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council, said on Tuesday evening. “They will have to answer in full for their actions. Of course, if they stay alive,” Medvedev said, adding that mercenaries are killers with a broken psyche.

Anyone who tells the truth about the war in the Ukraine is putting their lives in danger as they are going up against the zionists who are in control of the western governments and their propaganda outlets aka the MSM. Truth is the enemy of the zionist propaganda blitz and will not be tolerated.

    This war is the result of the zionist Nuland led coup in Kiev in 2014 and the resulting breakaway of the Donbass region and the ensuing attacks by the Ukraine on this region which has caused over 16,000 civilian deaths in the 8 years of war, and this is the reason that Russia went into the Ukraine.

    { to expose American war crimes as should be the duty of every journalist.}

    It was a fatal mistake for Assange to assume that British “law” would protect him.
    Anglosphere acts as one: to protect the Anglosphere, not the so-called “sanctity of the law”.

    It’s always been that way. All States break their laws, but most don’t lecture others about laws and such. US & UK are the masters of lecturing others about laws and breaking every law while lecturing. US doesn’t even obey it own supreme law, the US Constitution.

    Even Sweden participated in his kidnapping by manufacturing a fake rape charge, so the Brits could grab him and hold him for US. They went through the charade of appeals to higher courts and such for the benefit of their own sheeple. But Assange’s fate was sealed when Brits grabbed him.

    Snowden was smarter to flee to Russia.

    It was Blair who brought in this one-sided Extradition Treaty with USA modelled on European Arrest Warrant which makes ANYONE in UK liable to extradition to USA without US needing to make a prima facie case – even for things not illegal in UK.

    And of course who can forget the Most Hypocritical Hopey Obama:

    I very definitely would have supported the Germans back then. Today, I just as definitely don’t support those running the show in Ukraine.

    The only difference between the German Nazi and the Ukrainian variety is that the latter are much more corrupt and more cowardly. Other than that, they are birds of a feather: the same ideology and the same methods.

    when mercs, partisans, sappers, whatever you want to call them, attack your mainline forces, the Geneva conventions do not apply and you can liquidate these people as you see fit.

    It’s nice, isn’t it, to be able to hide behind conventions when it suits you. What “convention” allows the civilians to be captured like animals and transported to Germany to work as slaves for the German masters? I am not away of any law of war – which any itself is a nonsensical thing – to permit such an act. And yet, it was a widespread practice on the occupied territories of the Soviet Union. Another common practice was to kick the people out of their homes to make room for the occupiers, take all their warm clothes (the German Nazi intended to win in summer and didn’t have any prepared) – in the middle of the Russian winter – as well as their food and let them out to die. If anybody objected in any way to those actions, the Germans liquidated them – all 13 million, in the strictest accordance to the conventions, no doubt.

    I’m becoming beyond fed up with people allowing their emotions to rule over their intellect and far too often expose how little they actually know about ground level WW2 combat history.

    I guess you are lucky, then, to have no intellect to rule over. You haven’t the foggiest idea what that war was like, and how little any of the “conventions” or “rules” restricted the actions of Wehrmacht, let alone that of Einsatzgruppen.

    “Anyone who tells the truth about the war in the Ukraine is putting their lives in danger as they are going up against the zionists who are in control of the western governments”

    — Agree. Jews have been wanting to capture Ukraine for a long time. Now they are implementing a project “land without people” by weaponizing and propagandizing the ongoing fratricidal war between Ukrainians and Russians. The Ukrainian Jews were already evacuated to the safety of Israel and the EU countries.

    Despite the holobiz noise, Zionists somehow missed the existence (sine 2014) of the openly Nazi death squads in Ukraine. The founder of the self-proclaimed Nazi Azov battalion is a Jew Kolomojsky who also happened to be the president of the Ukrainian Jewish Community. (Who needs holobiz tales about gas chambers and such when there are real fact-based stories about the Jew-financed mass murderers and sadistic torturers?)

    The zionzied Wall Street Journal published an admiring article about Kolomojsky and his Nazi thugs.

    Long before the Jewish Nazification of Ukraine, there was a systematic Nazification of Canada, where Banderites (Nazi collaborators and their progeny) have been running regular Nazi parades and even constructed several Nazi memorials. There was not a peep from the Canadian and American Jewish Communities.

    The current waves of gala concerts and other events for “Ukrainian refugees” are nothing but the Jewish apologia/screen of fog for Ukrainian Nazis. Despite the frantic sanitizing activities of Google, there is still a lot of information available about Stepan Bandera, Babij Yar, Volynya, and the sadistic tortures practices by Banderites in Poland and Ukraine. The Azov, Aidar, Dnipro I, and Dnipro II Nazi battalions are babies of the Jewish Lobby. The Jewish State and American Ziocons have been the most active supporters of Ukrainian Nazis.

    There is no doubt, that vengeful Jewish haters and sadists will continue eliminating honest journalists. The Talmud allows all kinds of depravities if this is “good for Jews.” It is hopeless to reason with the thugs at the ADL and B’nai B’rith – this scum jas no honor, no decency, and no brains — because the Jews have managed to destroy (again!) a truly safe harbor for their existence. This time it was the US.

    Ukraine will not be Jewish. Israel is universally despised. The intelligent and decent segment of the US/EU population is sick of holobiz lies. Information about the Jewish support for the Nazification of Ukraine is going to unravel, and there is no way to stop this process. The damned Talmudic tribe cannot live without hurting others.

    That Aiden Eslin must have been a communist or a communist sympathyser as he used to fight for the YPG which is a Marxist-Leninist organisation, and he couldn’t have been a mercenary but a volunteer with them as I don’t think the YPG had much money to pay for foreign volunteers. So he went from that to fight alongside Nazis in the Ukraine. Or he’s just a killer who joined the YPG on an internship to learn the military skills before becoming a fully fledged mercenary hoping to fight in wars throughout the world. Unfortunately for him, and fortunately for his future would be victims, his soldiering days are over. Hopefully permanently.

    Sadly, he never delivered. What he did deliver was the prototypical highfalutin’ anti-Americanism that American expats always wear like a Loro Piana jacket. “You Americans people are sooooo stupid,” he would say, forgetting that he’s an American too, who advertised on his Telegram feed that he went to Dartmouth. (He actually showed proof from the Dartmouth registrar’s office)

    I guess he has Chilean paper citizenship too, but he’s a born and raised Yank and talks like one. When war breaks out in Ukraine, he’s suddenly a Chilean, although I doubt Chile claims him.

    The YPG was and perhaps is more attractive to anarchists than MLs, and at least when it was fighting ISIS it tended to receive favourable coverage in the Western MSM, including Britain’s, of a kind not usually shown to ML groups. When it came into conflict with Turkey, a NATO member, attitudes cooled somewhat towards it. There also seems to have been some liaison between the YPG and US forces in northern Syria. Jumping from the YPG to the Ukrainian armed forces is not a big step, as both have been Western-backed, even if the YPG was less so than Ukraine. The Russians also seem to think Pinner, who is 20 years older than Aslin, had an involvement with the Bosnians back in the Yugoslavian fighting in 1994. The two have a track record of involvement with foreign causes supported by the West and NATO.

    Your comment rests on the premise that Russian people are “foreign” to the ukraine, which is Russia’s historic western borderland (the meaning of “ukraine”). That is an absurdity when you consider the overwhelming and systematic genetic, linguistic, cultural, and religious commonalities and ties between these overlapping/interwoven Rus peoples over the centuries.

    Lira isn’t the one supporting foreign aggression, provocation, corruption, and control of the ukraine’s government.

    His willingness to go on Galloway’s show does nothing to undermine his arguments and observations, which are based on much more knowledge, direct personal experience, and serious thought than you’re displaying.

    Speaking of “foreign” meddling in the region now called the ukraine, do you even know who “assigned” the western oblasty of the ukraine to that artificial entity, without consulting the people? A Soviet Communist dictator-torturer-murderer, in 1939 and 1945. Funny how you don’t even know that you and your ilk cheerleading violence and cancellation of “evil russians”, are demanding that more young men die to preserve the communist dictators’ arbitrary “orders” moving people and territory.

    You also apparently want more people to die in order to continue the US use of biological-warfare labs on the ukraine’s territory.

    You also apparently want more people to die so that the illegitimate coup “governmnet” of the ukraine can continue shelling and terrorizing “its own” people, forbidding people to speak their families’ ancestral languages (especially Russian, which is a native language of the great majority of “ukrainians” and by far the most widely spoken language in daily life almost everywhere in the ukraine outside that dictator-transferred western part).

    So you are implying that Americans are not stupid? — ariadna

    Ignorant, not stupid. Americans are indoctrinated in state schools, rather than being educated and, therefore, ignorant. And kept ignorant by corporate mass media. Ignorance is, in my opinion, far worse than being merely stupid, because you can’t fix stupid, and it isn’t your fault. Fixing ignorance requires effort, which many Americans are, apparently and unfortunately, unwilling to make. Perhaps inflation and food shortages will focus their attention… but only if they are forced to turn off their televisions.

    “He missed an appearance on George Galloway’s show on Friday. Galloway mentioned this again on Sunday.”

    It would not surprise me if George Galloway gave Gonzalo Lira’s mobile phone number to his MI5/MI6 handlers, and with simple Triangulation, the Jewkraine regime got his precise location!

    I find it hard to believe how so many people get duped by George Galloway. It must be the Fluoride in the water or the metals in vaccinations, that are responsible for lowering peoples IQ.

    His unquestioning support for the Global Corporate Media and Governmental narratives on the so called Covid-19 Pandemic, should be deeply disturbing, for the many naïve individuals who blindly follow his indoctrination.

    On the Mother of All Talk Shows (MOATS) radio show, broadcast on the 13th April 2020, George Galloway, at around one hour and thirty five minutes into his travesty of a talk show, gave his full support to Vaccinations in general and also his complete backing of Bill Gates. He also made the spurious claim that Gates gave away most of his money in an act of benevolence and also made the preposterous claim that Bill Gate’s plan for global vaccinations, was, more or less, a just and noble endeavour. I find it highly improbable that Galloway is unaware of the vast amount of deaths and the astronomical amount of paralysis that have resulted from Gates Vaccination programs in Africa and especially in India.

    For anyone unaware, George Galloway also convinced Saddam Hussein to give up his Chemical and Biological weapons, thus opening up Iraq for the illegal invasion by British and American troops that followed. He also earlier stated on another one of his MOATS radio shows, that Saddam was a bigger fool for listening to him.

    I have suspected George Galloway of being a Trojan Horse for well over a decade now, and an asset for British Intelligence (Calculatedly or Unsuspectingly through volte-face character flaw is the only question in my mind). As my late Grandmother used to say, a good liar needs a good memory. Having had listened to many of his The Mother of All Talk Shows, I noticed plentiful examples of his complete volte-face on certain individuals and organisations, from positive to negative attitude and vice versa. His consistency is highly suspect, like many on the fake Left, who masquerade as supporters of Workers Parties, but in truth are deceitful Champagne Socialists.

    George Galloway is a Trotskyite snake, who I have called out on a plethora of occasions in the last decade.

    While I really hope he is OK, before his disappearance I had thought that he was a little too publicity hungry and reckless. In his early broadcasts soon after the war started, he said his wife and children had got out and he could easily have left with them.

    His later broadcasts didn’t have any value added by his being in Kharkiv, other than reporting on how distant the shelling sounded. He also said in one of his earlier videos that two goons showed up at his apartment building looking for him. At the time I thought he was being a drama queen but if there were that true, he could have just left Ukraine and done the same broadcasts from a safer place. It was just opinion anyway.

    I hope he’s just lying low. Frankly doing anything to him would only attract unwanted publicity to Ukraine’s regime so I don’t see any benefit in going after him.

    Then again, there are a lot of crazies running around Ukraine right now, so maybe it was someone’s personal initiative. Anyway hope he turns up safe and sound and that the reason was mundane such as no internet and phone.

    “Paridiso Judaico.”

    — Yes, the last spasms of the rotten Zionized US have produced the Zio-Nazification of Ukraine. The reality is stranger and more powerful than myths.

    The Kagans clan of “holobiz survivors,” the blood-thirsty Zionist Carl Gerschman (NED), the Jewish president of the Jewish community of Ukraine Mr. Kolomojsky, who founded and financed the Nazi death squads Azov, Aidar, Dnipro I, and Dnipro II (the Nazi death squads were provided by the Jewish State with Israel-made rifles and by the Zionized CIA and US Army with instructors and lethal weaponry), the triumph of the Jewish homoerotic liar-in-charge Mr. Ze – this is a picture of the Jewish Community’s very active participation in the Nazification of Ukraine.

    The Ziocons-run promotion of the Banderites or the neo-Nazo-Matzo regime in Ukraine is explainable by the Talmudic dictum that everything goes if it is “good for Jews.” The Jewish Lobby has its ‘triumph’ in Ukraine: the destruction of the country and a lot of dead Russians and Ukrainians. Zelensky escaped to Poland while Ukrainian Jews were evacuated to Israel and the EU countries. However, the fascist Jewish dictator Ze has ordered the forced conscription of all non-Jews aged 18 to 60 into the Ukrainian Army.

    Jews wanted Crimea and Ukraine. Moreover, Jews have been suffering the visceral, unquenchable hatred of Russia. Just take a look at the Zionist-owned MSM (the Atlantic Council and NYT are good examples of the sick Talmudic presence). The Zionists’ lies have become a norm.

    Ukrainian refugees in Europe and the US are of two types: the supporters of Banderites (congratulations, Nazis in Brussels and Ziocons in the US – this is your contingent!) and those who saw the Banderites’ atrocities and will speak about the Zio-Nazification of Ukraine (this will help decent Europeans to make their minds about their corrupt governments). The Zionized US is a hopeless case. As Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House articulated it so clearly, “if this capital crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain is our commitment to our aid to Israel.” – Help for the US citizenry is not factored into the Zionized US Congress plans.

Six years later Maj Gen McChrystal, by now a four star general and commander of international forces in Afghanistan, had received a complaint from the UK’s director of special forces (DSF) for speaking about operations carried out with the SAS and SBS in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    During the conversation this morning he said that the Americans were astonished by the rate at which gifted equipment to the Ukrainians is being destroyed. He said that equipment that was meant to last a week is being promptly destroyed in a day. He also stated that he firmly believed that Camella Harris is going to be the next US president, that the Democrats are going to pull out all of the election rigging stops to make it happen. Well worth listening to. It’s amazing that the wheels have come off this quickly.

He’s also not allowed to leave the country (maybe even the city). And he more than once referred to them as legitimate law enforcement and I think referenced legal council advice. Could be it’s like he stated, that The Daily Beast got him in trouble by contacting the security service and saying whatever they said about him, not so much him running his mouth (like, for example, reporting that a shopping mall that got hit by a Russian strike was not empty, as was reported, but was full of Ukrainian soldiers and equipment).

    That map does not show an encirclement. It does not show a double envelopment. It does not even show any significant Russian advances from a week ago. Why is the salient north of Lyman devoid of Ukrainian defenses or alleged Russian attacks? The goofy red arrows are entirely imaginary. The alleged Russian line of advance out of Izyum would be subject to Ukrainian counterattacks on both flanks. This entire map is the fantasy of a crackpot.

Ony the thoroughly Zionized Pentagon could name a large American destroyed [the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer DDG 56) after the Traitor admiral John McCain. who betrayed the servicemen on USSLiberty that was attacked by Israel.

    On June 8, 1967, Israeli war planes and torpedo boats attacked the USS Liberty… Of the 294-member crew, 34 Americans died and 174 were wounded during an attack that lasted as long as the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    The ship, armed only with four machine guns, was first strafed by Israel Defense Forces aircraft, which took out its communication antennas so it could not radio for help. The Liberty was then bombed, hit with napalm, and torpedoed. …

    …the White House [of Lyndon Johnson the Jew] twice called back aircraft assistance that Rear Admiral Lawrence Geis launched from carriers … While recalling rescue planes a second time, President Lyndon Johnson reportedly told Geis he didn’t care if the ship sank, he wasn’t going to embarrass an ally. The mystery is how Johnson knew the attackers were Israelis. Not even the crewmen knew their attackers’ identities because unmarked aircraft were used.

    This, plus survivors’ orders to keep silent about the attack or risk life in prison – or worse – and an investigator’s allegation before he died that a cover-up had been ordered by Admiral John McCain., Jr., father of U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-AZ.

    And the stupid Banderites believe that the Zionized US Army and Zionized US Department care about them. The Ziocons use Banderites as cannon fodder in the Judea War on Russia.

    A cover-up of the murder of American servicemen on USSLiberty had been ordered by Admiral John McCain. Bravo, US army brass. This is your man.

    Why does the United States need the mass death of Ukrainians
    Ukraine is already acting against Russia by prohibited methods
    on April 23, 2022, 17:00
    Text: Andrey Rezchikov


    The United States is preparing provocations to accuse Russia of using chemical, biological or tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine. As the Ministry of Defence warns, sabotage is possible at chemical and biological facilities in Kharkov and Kiev or at the Zaporozhe NPP. The expert community is convinced that provocations, as in Bucha, have become insufficient, since the special operation proves its effectiveness, so the West is looking for reasons for new accusations against Russia.

    On Saturday, Igor Kirillov, the head of the radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Forces of the Russian Armed Forces, held a briefing on the preparation of provocations by the United States and NATO accusing Russia of using nuclear, chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine. These plans, the Defence Ministry is confident, were a reaction of the Americans to Russia’s success in conducting a special military operation.

    Three possible scenarios were prepared. The most likely one is a “staged incident under a false flag” at chemical and biological facilities in Kharkov and Kiev. “We may be talking about the real use of chemical and biological weapons with victims among the population, or staging “sabotage” by Russia at facilities belonging to Ukraine that were involved in the development of components of weapons of mass destruction,” Kirillov explained.

    The second scenario consisted in the most covert use of weapons of mass destruction “in small volumes” “to suppress the will and ability to resist within the framework of solving a specific operational task.” This scenario was considered at the Azovstal enterprise in Mariupol. On Thursday, the city completely came under the control of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, as well as the people’s militia of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. However, the remnants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Security Forces remain blockaded at Azovstal. The storming of this facility was canceled by the decision of Russian President Vladimir Putin, which disrupted “the Pentagon’s plans for its implementation.”

    The least likely scenario of provocations, the military calls the open use of weapons of mass destruction in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, which have been turned into fortress cities. Provocation at the nuclear power facilities of Ukraine, first of all, at the Zaporozhe NPP controlled by Russian troops, is also not excluded. This week, at a checkpoint of the National Guard troops, a “convoy of 10 cars with dangerous cargo heading to the nuclear power plant” was stopped and returned back to the city of Zaporozhye.

    In addition, the possibility of strikes on the storage of radioactive waste at the former enterprise “Pridnestrovian Chemical Plant” in the Dnepropetrovsk region is being considered. “The Ministry of Defence has a document confirming the critical condition of the storage facilities and the misuse of funds allocated by the European Union for the maintenance of the facility,” Kirillov added.

    According to the general, with the backing of the United States, the Ukrainian authorities can arrange a provocation using chemical weapons to discredit the Russian army, which will lead to the death of tens of thousands of Ukrainians, will cause an “environmental and humanitarian catastrophe.” The high probability of staging with chemical weapons is confirmed by the facts of the supply of antidotes of toxic substances from the USA to Ukraine, including more than 220 thousand ampoules with atropine. According to the general, this fact indicates the purposeful preparation of provocations with nerve agents.

    Kirillov called the CIA director’s statement about Russia’s possible use of tactical nuclear weapons against Ukraine absurd. With the current level of technical equipment of the international nuclear test monitoring system, it would be impossible to conceal the use of such weapons. “If the director of the CIA does not understand this, then he is either a layman or he is being misled,” Kirillov added.

    Experts are confident that such provocations are aimed at convincing as many countries as possible to support Western sanctions against Russia.

    Igor Korotchenko, editor-in-chief of the National Defence magazine, recalled that in addition to Western countries, “the rest of the world refused to join the sanctions.” “British Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently paid a visit to India, and other important Western functionaries visited there before him to put pressure on New Delhi and force it to join anti-Russian sanctions. But these attempts were unsuccessful, so the West needs a provocation that is monstrous in its essence and consequences in order to try to influence world public opinion.

    They don’t need a Bucha staging, not such primitive, though dangerous provocations, but namely chemical, biological or nuclear provocation,” Korotchenko believes.

    Corresponding member of the Academy of Military Sciences Alexander Bartosh adds that “the Americans have nothing to fend off the successes of Russia’s special operation, so they escalate the situation due to possible accusations of illegal actions.” “This technology is old, it was worked out in Syria with the participation of the White Helmets. Possible provocations with the spraying of chemical and radioactive substances in Ukraine are needed to escalate the situation and further consolidate public opinion not only in Europe, but also around the world in the confrontation with Russia,” Bartosz stressed.

    Korotchenko explained that now no-one doubts the success of the Russian special operation, as evidenced by the beginning of the second phase and the capture of Mariupol, and the West’s efforts to support Ukraine are failing. “According to Western strategists, provocation is needed. This can be countered only with the help of maximum transparency, openness and honesty of Russia’s position. Therefore, the warning of the Ministry of Defence is a signal by which we notify the whole world – be vigilant, such a provocation may occur with the participation of the Ukrainian authorities,” Korotchenko explained.

    Biden has prepared military threats against Russia
    Bartosh adds that Russia can resist such provocations due to serious intelligence work on the ground, strengthening control over nuclear substances at Ukrainian nuclear power plants and “monitoring the work of chemical industries where substances can be manufactured to commit such provocations.”
    In turn, Deputy Speaker of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev told RIA Novosti that the Russian military has enough forces and means to prevent any provocations by the West. “The danger is extremely high, but there are few hopes for the objectivity of international observers – the Americans have perfectly learned how to manipulate such missions in their favour. So you have to rely only on yourself,” the senator said.

    Associate Professor of the Department of Political Science and Sociology of the Russian University of Economics. Plekhanova, a member of the expert council of the “Officers of Russia” Alexander Perendzhiev notes that now the encirclement of the strongest and fortified part of the Ukrainian group continues in the Donbass. In these circumstances, the West needs to incite another attack of hatred against Russia and its army not only in Ukraine, but also around the world. Moreover, more and more ordinary Ukrainians show sympathy for Russia and demonstrate distrust of their own army and leadership. “The defeat of the Ukrainian group in the Donbass will actually mean a radical change. That’s to prevent this from happening,

    The USA and the vaunted NATO act as the last and cowardly scoundrels. They are capable only of informational nastiness and are able to excite world public opinion with their help. Now the United States has decided that they can no longer denigrate Russia with the help of fakes alone, and now real blood is needed for this, they are going to kill people in Ukraine,” Perendzhiev believes.

    During the briefing, Kirillov also said that possible dramatisations should put pressure on Russia’s allies, including India and China, as well as create political and economic isolation of the Russian Federation. He recalled that the programmes for the creation of biological weapons in the USSR were curtailed in 1972, and the chemical arsenal was completely destroyed by September 2017. “At the same time, the number of biological laboratories in the United States is completely incomparable with other countries. According to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, 336 laboratories in 30 countries of the world are under Washington’s control, which causes serious concern,” Kirillov said.

    Kirillov also said that this week Ukraine dropped a container with ampoules from a drone to the position of Russian troops. “It was planned that when they were destroyed, a chemical reaction would occur that would cause an explosion and fire with the release of toxic substances not included in the convention lists,” Kirillov said, adding that the contents of the ampoules are now being investigated in the laboratory of the 27th Scientific Centre of the Russian Defence Ministry.

    According to Perendzhiev, the collective West is engaged in military outrages by the hands of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and commits war crimes. “The Armed Forces of Ukraine are not only waging a terrorist war, hiding behind civilians, social infrastructure, they are also waging a criminal war with the use of chemical weapons. Official Kiev and the collective West are the subject of war crimes. In this case, Russia’s special operation has shown the true essence of the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” the expert believes.

    Furthermore, if such is the case and the wife is the real brains behind the operation (also the superficial bit on the putative Nuland family dysfunction, which impressed a lot of people who I guess had never heard of Nuland and didn’t know that she is Kagan’s better half??), then presumably the SBU would like to shut down the actual sources of Lira’s info: the wife and friends.

    “A Swede who survived the Russian attack on a NATO training camp speaks out”

    “We heard jets and when we ran out into the woods we heard artillery fire in the distance. I asked a sergeant or officer if it was artillery and he said it was. It was pitch black out in the woods, people started screaming and raving. Everything was on fire at the base and people were starting to shout for us to come back and help the wounded, help put out the fires and so on. Some then said outright that we can not go back to a base where it was bombed ten minutes earlier, because it will be bombed again.”

    The Ukrainians led the foreign recruits into the open. “They asked us to regroup and put ourselves in large groups to wait for new orders. We did that and stood and discussed what was happening. Some had obtained weapons but most were completely unarmed. Then the Ukrainian officers started talking some propaganda shit about the Russians not daring to send in any jets over our land.”

    M: So they are setting you up unarmed on open ground immediately after a hostile air strike?

    “Yes, exactly, on open ground… Even I understand that these are shitty decisions that were made. They asked us to walk towards some helicopter landing sites on completely open and level ground. … Later we learned that about 45 minutes after we left, 20 more missiles came and leveled everything to the ground. …

    There was a whole bunch of Ukrainians who was supposed to help us, but they jumped in cars and just ran from there.”

    Why would he seek redemption when he seems proud of his CRP endeavor? Unless you think he has secret regrets. My impression was that he found it exciting to be at the heart of the action. He said he was using his own name (since Kiev) so he’d personally get some YT recognition.

    When you say “a tool,” how do you mean that? Someone’s puppet, or a jerk? He strikes me as obnoxious in a variety of ways, all of which are irrelevant. He’s ridiculously overbearing and conceited. So what. His analysis of Nuland is overly personal, but not so bad as to discredit the bulk of it.

    I tried to watch two of his videos, hoping to get some valuable insights into the situation in Ukraine. In the first he described he was thrown out of his hotel in Kiev, and then took a train to Kharkov(?) Signal to noise ratio was low — because it took him so long to tell this rather uneventful story.

    In the latter video he was just rambling about how smart he is and his education, after few minutes I skipped forward few times and it was just more of the same. He reminded me of old drunkard telling tall tales in a shady bar. Or perhaps a guy without much luck in life trying to capitalize on his newfound fame, gathering views by telling bored people stories and voicing opinions on various subjects. Didn’t impress me at all.

    Since he hasn’t put fort much of value I think it’s rather pointless to speculate about his credibility. And his disappearance, well, let’s just say the SBU did his carrier – as the brave internet truth teller who refuses to leave the war zone, even if facing serious consequences – a big favor. How convenient.

    Perhas the SBU took him, perhaps he just made the whole thing up. Should we care? I bet great many people in Ukraine have more interesting stories to tell than this guy.

He has shown virtually NO sympathy or empathy for the tens of millions of Ukrainians who are suffering under the Russian invasion.

    It appears he has no sympathy for Ukrainians……because he is angry at his Ukrainian wife because he didn’t know how to be a real man and get along with her. Hence, the start of his “RedPillCoach” nonsense on criticizing women.
