“Do not allow me to forget you.”

-Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Lviv, Western Ukraine.

The realities of this war, as I expected before arriving two weeks ago, have been slowly found on the faces, in the voices and deep in the penetrating eyes of those affected by it. These are the innocents, mostly, those who have a tale to tell and parse no words in telling it.

The next ninety-six hours would reveal their personal horrors.

After a five hour trip packed together into a cargo van filled with food and medical aid supplies, we arrive in Lviv, Ukraine. Now, I sit alongside my five other passionate colleagues at a long wooden table that is covered modestly and set in preparation for our welcome. We dig in, eating what we all thankfully admit is the finest spaghetti sauce ever served. We are very hungry. Our hosts are glad we’re here.

The meal is served in a huge white hall in front of the altar of an ancient Catholic church, dilapidated from age but still in use by our host, Roman, who is part of a worldwide Christian fellowship called Praise Chapel. I was invited by founder, John McGovern, who I had the great fortune of bumping into while doing refugee interviews at Warsaw’s Central Station, the arrival point for many escaping this war, and where three huge all-white tents staffed by other aid workers provide meals, sundries and shelter to all coming in from Ukraine.

Here I look for interviews with refugees, but only a few speak English.

In conflict zones, being a neutral, fact-based reporter is not possible. In the eyes of those affected, objectivity is perceived as instead being on one end of the polarities of this war; East or West. As such, the most important lesson learned from my time in Lebanon and Turkey is to ask many, many questions, while at the same time keeping one’s mouth securely shut.

And, to listen …and watch closely!

Many I meet, here in Lviv or while tramping the streets of Warsaw have experienced this war, but from its periphery west of the Dnieper River with Kyiv at its northern end near Belarus. This does not mean that they have not been affected or do not express strong emotions. But it is in the eyes of those interviewed who travel West that shows whether a person has indeed been internally afflicted by this war. The eyes being the mirrors of one’s soul.

As I interviewed many, it is their eyes that I focus on to confirm their many offered truths. Each time I am reminded of what a hardened Hezbollah soldier told me in 2018 while standing on the war-torn Israel/Lebanon border overlooking Israel’s stolen Palestinian farmlands.

“When one sees his first dead man he remembers it forever. When a man sees a man a die, sees that man take his last breath and then become still, it stays forever… in his eyes!”

I have seen those eyes. In Lebanon. In Turkey. In airports on the gaunt, sallow faces of many khaki clothed GI’s returning from war: Their “thousand-mile stare,” looking so intently at nothing, an unlit cigarette dangling unattended in the left hand, slumped forward in deep, deep thought, chin perched on the right as their only support.

In the four days to come, I will see those eyes three times more.

On the trip to Lviv, Ukraine John McGovern’s son-in-law Paul who is our driver and a senior member of Praise Chapel sits next to James who is riding shotgun. He is a youngish veteran who has seen war and lost a close friend in Afghanistan. James is here to begin a sponsored military extraction of persons unknown since I don’t usually ask stupid questions.

Both Paul and James do indeed well understand the background and the reasons that provided little choice but for Russia to seek security from NATO expansion due to its national interests while also protecting the ravaged Eastern Ukrainians who are more Russian than Ukrainian in culture and language. As James, put it, “When the war started I thought Putin was a chess master. But, “he continued, “I have changed on that. Now he’s losing.” He admits that this opinion is not very popular at the family dining table back home in Georgia and that it is based on US intelligence provided. But, on one point we all agree: We hate this war.

Despite western media claiming that Zelensky’s family remained in Kyiv, Ukraine in support, this is not likely true. Putting two and two together from a conversation with my Christian dinner host just days before, it is quite likely that it was James and his team, now waiting for him in Lviv, that had completed the “extraction”, of Zelensky’s daughter from Kyiv to Lviv two weeks before. James did not mind admitting he was here this time for a similar mission.

While our comrades in the other seats listen, decorum and a budding friendship created by my love of intelligent discussion, prevent me from challenging Paul and James on some of the information and opinions they share. Finer men I have not met, but pieces were missing in our dialogue and I keep these to myself, all the while fearing that a slip of the tongue in the wrong direction would turn friendship into acrimony as was illustrated very sadly in Part One, of this series.

I have yet to find safe passage to Eastern Ukraine so I have offered to our hosts at our dinner table my limited medical skills and a strong back in getting supplies to the east. Due to the dangers, Eastwards stockpiles of medical aid and food are piling up in Lviv. The dangers are not particularly Russian.

Zelensky, desperate for troops after suffering massive losses opened the jails of Western Ukraine to the criminals and next armed them in the outlandish belief that despite brutal incarceration they would actually side with Ukraine and direct their weapons eastwards. He claimed this was limited to those prisoners with battle experience, but this was not true as this would have been a very small subset since, other than criminally razing the Donbas, a sanctioned crime, this is Ukraine’s first recent war. Not surprisingly, many turned their weapons and their newfound freedom to the West instead for a renewed criminal opportunity. In war, medical supplies are often worth their weight in gold. So, relief supplies for the refugees have more than a Russian threat to contend with.

Despite so much media distortion to the contrary, Lviv, eighty kilometres from the Polish border, has only been affected by this war due to its proximity and use for the incoming military arms and foreign mercenaries stockpiled on the outskirts of the town. Lviv has been hit by the Russian rockets but these have been limited to purely military targets. There have been no civilian casualties as stated by the Mayor of Lviv in multiple Telegram posts censored by western media. But, when the rockets fall everyone knows it. They are huge explosions.

Three days before, I met with Michael, who is with another Christian group. He was in Lviv on the night of Biden’s Warsaw speech of March 26 when three Russian rockets destroyed a munitions industrial area and an oil and lubricant facility. Sources indicated that these were also used to store Western supplied munitions. “It shook us out of bed”, Mike said to me on the Sunday. This was not surprising since Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov on March 13 warned the U.S. that pumping weapons from a number of countries it orchestrates isn’t just a dangerous move, it’s an action that makes those convoys legitimate targets.”

I also spoke to one aid worker in Lviv who was in the nearby village of Deliatyn in the Ivano-Frankivsk region 50km f rom the Romanian border, on March 18, when Russia reportedly used for the first time a hypersonic missile that screamed in at Mach 5.5 with a direct hit on a deep underground bunker containing Ukrainian missiles and aircraft rockets donated by the west. Reportedly, over 200 incoming mercenaries were also housed there for initial training. The blast as seen on video was colossal. Said, Vincent, “Our whole hotel shook and we were more than 20 kilometres away! Shit fell all over the floor like an earthquake. Thank God there was only one blast.”

All munitions and mercenaries and their drive to increase the horrors of war eastwards were vaporized, instantly. No civilians were hurt.

Despite these strikes, Lviv moves as normal. I see that the shops are open and people walk casually as the buses and trains pass by as usual. This indicates that the public here knows from these experiences that Russia has not been trying to victimize the innocent population of Lviv, instead using precision advanced munitions for purely military targets only.

After our dinner, we are also welcomed by Antone, who, he says, has just got back from the East in Odessa. Mosha, Ukrainian and our sole woman companion on this trip translates as Antone provides us with his tales of derring-do fighting Russians. He is verbose and affable all the time as he tells us of escaping the Russians repeatedly after attacking them with rifle fire and a donated RPG.

This is the man who may have my life in his hands if I help take supplies East.

So, I pay very close attention. As to being a reporter, my colleagues have been sworn to secrecy for my protection. They keep this promise. So, as Antone continues his story I occasionally ask Mosha to translate a strategically benign question or more to him.

Listening In the wings is a short, stout, stubble-faced man quietly standing, saying nothing. As the story continues, I often look at him closely before returning my attention to Antone. There is something seemingly wrong with his ongoing tale.

But it is when this man sees me looking his way and looks back into my eyes, blank-faced, that I know, what is wrong. It is the storyteller.

The silent man now turns and leaves. Without a goodbye, he is gone, but he looks at me one last time and for the first time on this trip, I see the most unmistakable affliction of war. Those eyes.

As Antone wraps up his tale, I ask a few more questions, no longer probing his testimony but the face of this man himself, smiling and talking so quickly. No, I will not be putting my life at risk with him. No. He has not seen war.

Unlike the man who said nothing, I do not see… those eyes.

With our business now finished in Lviv, we aid workers hunker down in the van to begin our long return journey to Warsaw. One seat is now vacant.

Suddenly, news of a new rocket strike in Lviv comes over Mosha’s phone…

It begins to snow. Strange for this being late spring in early April… a seemingly very dark natural comment levied upon us all about this God damn war!

Over the past two weeks, I have heard very much. However, I am in Western Ukraine a very different reality than the east where real war there rages town by town, hour by hour. Warsaw is plastered everywhere with Ukrainian bright yellow and pale blue flags all fervently supporting war in Ukraine. Vendors sell them on many street corners like they were fruit and their colours adorn the billboards, shops, buses, lamp posts, and subways as the radio and TV stations every ten minutes scream infomercials in support of Ukraine as part of this collective support for war.

Here in Warsaw, most refugees, with the exception of those from Kyiv, have fled due to this inspired fear, not direct conflict. Many admit this freely. Yes, they have family there and have heard much, but most are predisposed to their own opinions derived years before the war began: Anti Russia. This sentiment is not the case in the East. As I watch the evening news, my hotel night clerk translates rapidly this purely western narrative. As a counter, regularly, my translator and friend, Andrew, who is Ukrainian texts me at odd hours with info from the east and it quickly becomes clear that the media in both Poland and Ukraine have intentionally made the reality of war muddy.

Zelensky has banned all media coverage in Ukraine, save one, and alternative views favouring peace are, as I would find out are a death sentence. War is the only sanctioned opinion allowed. Peace will get you arrested or shot.

This was shown yesterday April 14 when both Viktor Medvedchuk, a Ukrainian politician who was elected as People’s Deputy of Ukraine on 29 August 2019 and Major General Valery Shaytanov from Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU), were arrested on very specious charges of “treason.” The full breadth of Western media joined in, falsely accusing both men of being “Putin’s ally.”

This is utter rubbish. I confirmed this with a recent US inside contact here in Ukraine (see: upcoming Part Four) in a call this morning and who knows both men well.

Their true crime is making the mistake of suggesting that Ukraine settle this war and accept peace. Both men know the truth: The Ukrainian army is taking staggering loses in men, materiel, and the ability to resupply both. Zelensky’s on going purge of peace and “anti-heroes” was preceded two weeks ago by his firing of both Naumov Andriy Olehovych, former chief of the Main Department of Internal Security of the Security Service of Ukraine, and Kryvoruchko Serhiy Oleksandrovych, former chief of the Office of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Kherson region. Both of these men, too, are guilty of merely suggesting the new Ukrainian capital crime of “Peace.”

For Zelensky and Nato their personal treason is allowing this war to be fought right down to the very last Ukrainian.


I am frustrated. My goal of getting to the East where the true stories of the atrocities there will certainly be told by those refugees has met with my own realities. The Russian embassy here in Warsaw has now closed. The staff is burning everything before they leave. Presumably, my visa application to Russia is in one of the piles.

Despite my current proximity barely a day goes by that I don’t receive videos and pictures of the horrors taking place in the Donbas and the East. My contact info is easily found and since the start of this series, I have received scores of Instagram, Telegram, Tick Toc or Whatsapp messages asking that I share these images with the reader.

But I refuse to look at any of them. Videos and pictures can be doctored and used to sway a reporter’s work in the wrong direction away from objective reporting. This war is now a media-inspired shit show and I will not be a part of it. So, I file these many solicitations away, never looking at a one, for I already know what they contain, horror. I do not need to look… or listen.

Except once.

At my first hotel, I meet Lee. English being rather rare, he has stopped me, asking for information. In turn, I parry him for the same.

Lee admits to being a US mercenary—former Airborne—paid, like James, to extract persons unknown from an area near Kyiv. He readily admits to knowing of the Nazi philosophy attached to many in the Ukrainian military but is being paid well for his service not to care. He seems to lack quality US intel since his questions are mostly about the roads and military beyond Kyiv and I cannot answer beyond Lviv.

He seems out of his league here. Interestingly, he asks if I have contacts for protective gear like flack jackets and helmets. I warn him of the dangers, not of the Russians who are mostly east of his target, but of the Ukrainians. Days before, Andrew my translator, had sent me three of the many videos I have received, telling me, “The man being tortured is speaking Russian. His killers are speaking Ukrainian,” in his effort to educate me.

But, again, I refuse to access these videos.

But Lee seems a good kid, but too full of US-inspired bravado to heed my warning. To help I tell him of Andrew’s videos, though I haven’t viewed them. He doesn’t believe me and asks me to show him. I scroll to the right spot on Whatsapp and hand him my phone and he eagerly taps the first, second and then third video to life.

Screams, the likes of which could not be faked, shriek from my phone and I close my eyes hard shut in a desperate and failed attempt not to hear.

He hands me back my phone. “Yeah”, he says, “That’s pretty bad.”


“Please, tell my story.”

As I put my boots on the ground one more time, still stuck in Warsaw I remember the guardian angel that has steered me well during my times reporting in foreign lands. Sitting and stewing in a dank hotel room does not provide the story… nor luck.

So, I return to Central Station, Warsaw. While doing a bit of photo editing and sitting on one of the very nearby concrete benches on the grounds in front of the massive soviet Palace of Culture and Science building, my glance comes up from my screen. Directly in front of me is an old man stooped and holding a cane. He is moving directly at me. He appears quite frail and he is now just a few yards away, so close I am afraid he is blind. But he stops, now close enough to speak. “You are a journalist,” he says in perfect, but heavily accented English, not as a question, but strangely as a statement. I nod, not sure how far English will take me. “Will you help me,” he offers and I assume he means a donation and reach for my red day pack. “No, no, no…” he responds, “I have things to tell you.”

I get to my feet and offer him my arm which he takes lightly in both hands as I help steer his half-bent body next to me onto the concrete bench. More than an hour later, as the snow flurries again cry in response from the grey gloom above, I bid him goodbye. What he has told me has brought a tear to my eyes, prayers to my lips and hatred to my heart.

Abram is from Markivka and has traversed the war zone of the east to meet his daughter and two granddaughters who were already here the past two weeks from just south of Kyiv. It turned out I had spoken to his daughter Taisaya earlier that morning at Central Station because she also spoke enough English. I had apparently left much too quickly since her two little girls had said they were waiting for their granddad to arrive, but trains here no longer follow a scripted schedule. The girls were full of happy smiles, waiting. I had told their Mum that I wanted testimonies from the east, but she could not help. I had forgotten their names but remembered the encounter well.

Over that next hour, as I scribbled furiously, Abram told me of being trapped in Markivka as the war began, not by the Russians but by the Ukrainian Army (AFU), what he repeatedly called the “Banderists.” Those following this series know what that means: Nazis.

Abram is a Russian Jew and proudly admits to serving in the Red Army, particularly in Afghanistan. “We did many wrong things there,” he began, “but these Banderists they hate, their hearts, full of hate. Always hate. Many years, only hate!” Stupidly I offered the leading question, “why?.” Abram, who had been looking down while delivering his thoughts straightened in a start, now looking me in the eyes like a father scolding a child, “Because we are Russian!”

Abram talked, then, about the times well before the 2014 Maidan Square Orange revolution, a time when Ukraine was certainly divided into ethnic regions, but when the Donbas, Donetsk, Luhansk and eastern Ukraine, although attracting a much larger percentage of Jews and ethnic Russians was just that, a region of Ukraine. East worked well with west. He spoke of small cases of anti-Semitism and anti-Russian sentiment but as he put it, “When we were Soviet, we were all friends.”

According to Abram that all changed quickly in 2014, “We became dogs!” he spat. “But you kick a dog once, he runs. You kick a dog again and he looks you in the eyes, asking why” But, he slowed for emphasis, “You kick a dog three times… and he bites.” He talked about the immediate attacks by the AFU after the west overturned the election of Viktor Yanukovych who was himself from Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine. Continuing he said,

“What we want then is independence. Already we were. Not to join Russia. That we wanted this is a lie. They made war from the west on us of the East. Because we speak Russian? We love Russia? Not only, this…”

and here he again glanced up from his thoughts and for emphasis,

“Because the Banderists hate Russia. Because you… I’m sorry.. your country… hates Russia. And we are Russian in our hearts! We do not hate America. We love Ukraine! But you… I’m sorry again… your country, it hates Russia!”

His anger was understood. Abram’s wife had been killed in the indiscriminate artillery shelling by the AFU when a round in the early morning hit the shop where she worked as a clerk and when she was opening for the day. He asked me if I knew what terror was, but answered his own question, “It is to never know, any time when death will come.” He said the Banderists would go days, weeks, months without firing a shot at his village and then suddenly open fire from many miles away and at no target in particular. “For many years we could not know when who would be the next to die. And…” he added, “for seven years we beg Putin for help.”

It was three weeks before he finally left Marikiva but that was when the Russian army had forced the AFU out. According to Abram the AFU held them in the basement the whole time; a horror of its own. Little food, no toilet- buckets- far too many seeking refuge there after the AFU had commandeered his building for their safety, using it for the vantage points and firing opportunities provided by the tall buildings. When the AFU was forced out by the Russians they fired at it with RPGs while he and the more than forty in the basement screamed in terror.

He had escaped Markivka and moved west via Belarus, but his younger brother was killed as he tried to use the humanitarian corridor created not by the AFU but by the Russians. He was supposed to meet his brother Leonid in Prosian on the way to the Belarus border. He didn’t make it. It was a neighbour friend who told him.

Abram told of seeing from his windows AFU soldiers digging mines into the roads to stop people from leaving his town. “Only we walk on concrete. No mines under concrete,” he said.”But you walk on concrete and they shoot you.” His brother died when he and two family men, two women and their children stepped through a tripwire planted by the AFU as they walked through the roadside brush off the road to Prosian. A neighbour friend and others were with another group far enough behind to live. It was the Russian army that responded, not the AFU. The men, leading, died instantly. The others died at the scene.

Breaking the horrible news in Prosian his brother’s neighbour had brought to him his brother’s watch. Abram, as he reached into his pocket, his face and his hands were trembling. I knew what was coming. Shaking, he held out an old, worn but lovely golden wind up watch, the gold wrist band mostly gone, the lens fractured in uneven quadrants, but I could still make out the exact time of this horror: 5:39. Am. Pm. It just didn’t matter…anymore.

“This is what is left of my brother…”


His daughter Taisaya and granddaughters, Kristina and Alina, surprise me. They have been waiting out of sight throughout Abram’s time with me and now walk up to help their Grandfather home. I do not know if they have heard of this horror. I hug them all for no, or only one, good reason.

As I help him to his feet, placing Abram’s cane back in his hand and being sure he is steadily balanced, he struggles to straighten himself fully to properly offer his hand. I was surprised that he is almost my height. I offer my hand in return, and he takes it in his, a gentle touch, now looking at me intently as if to test my mettle for one last time.

Abram is smiling now. “My daughter said you are a journalist. Go to the east as you want. You will know what I said is so.” he says as an ending.“Then, please… tell my story.”

“Thank you…” he adds before turning forever away. But just before he did, I saw his face clearly, and I knew his story was true.

I saw, once more…those eyes.


I will view them now. Those videos. The pictures. I feel an obligation. To Abram, to Leonid, to my Christian friends in Lviv, to Andrew and every refugee I have interviewed and those I have not, alive or dead.

Sitting on my hotels bed, pillows piled behind me, I draw these images and videos up on my laptop and access the files on my phone I steel myself with a six-pack close at hand. I have my translator app at hand only to know what language of this war is being spoken. As I ready myself I close my eyes long and hard once again remembering Lee, the mercenary’s, final comment because I know it’s going to be “pretty bad.”

It is.

The dead, the wounded writhing, their screams rising until silent, their words testimonies I don’t understand, but yet I do, the views of the barbarian AFU planting mines, shooting at civilian targets, at the occupants of the buildings, or just the buildings, the bloodied faces screaming for vengeance into the camera, the artillery strikes into buildings as white flags wave, the slit throats, the tears, the children clutching dead mothers, mothers holding dead sons, husbands, brothers for the final time or breath, the blood, so, so much blood, and all the time too, too, too much horror. There must be a better singular word to use, but I am speechless. It is simply, purely…Horror!

Each time I move to the next file, I force myself to do so, swilling beer to dull my outrage that only increases with every pull on the bottle and new atrocity. I will honour them all, must finish what I started.

More than two hours later I am spent. I am done. I am drunk. I have now seen with my own eyes…

I trip over bottles as I head for my bathroom. I must wash this all from my face. Wash it from my mind.

From the sink I splash cold. cold water over my whole head, desperate for relief. Grasping for a white towel at hand I look into the mirror, but my eyes will not focus. All I see is a kaleidoscope of those images swirling, blending all in a cacophony tinged with red that will not go away.

As the towel pulls down from my face, focus slowly comes back to view. In the mirror, I look deeply into my own ashen face, drawn, tired, weary from my two weeks, until this moment improperly afflicted by this God damn war.

And then I see them, staring back at me with pinpoint accuracy, my testimony to the brutal truth of this war. There, in the mirror, staring back at me, I see…

Those Eyes!

  2. I do respect people who write their own first hand accounts of war. But then Redmayne-Titley contrives stuff like this.

    I also spoke to one aid worker in Lviv who was in the nearby village of Deliatyn in the Ivano-Frankivsk region 50km f rom the Romanian border, on March 18, when Russia reportedly used for the first time a hypersonic missile that screamed in at Mach 5.5 with a direct hit on a deep underground bunker containing Ukrainian missiles and aircraft rockets donated by the west. Reportedly, over 200 incoming mercenaries were also housed there for initial training. The blast as seen on video was colossal. Said, Vincent, “Our whole hotel shook and we were more than 20 kilometres away! Shit fell all over the floor like an earthquake. Thank God there was only one blast.”

    All munitions and mercenaries and their drive to increase the horrors of war eastwards were vaporized, instantly. No civilians were hurt.

    How does he know that all the munitions and mercenaries were vaporised? And instantly,too ? He doesn’t.

    How does he know that no civilians were hurt ? He doesn’t.

    So it makes me skeptical of everything else he has written in the article, especially as his ludicrous last article in UR was about Poland going rogue in the Ukraine.

  3. I keep coming here because sometimes there is a piece like this one.

    Journalism as it should be.

    So where does this hatred come from?

    Well you have to go back in history…there was severe retributions against the Nazi collaborators after WW2 but that doesn’t explain the original hate.

    You had the Stalin starvation of millions and purges?

    You have to go right back to find the original sin that caused neighbors to hate each other.

    Usually this involves a power that has long gone but had divided people for their purposes (divide and rule.)

    I don’t think Ukraine is a country and should be divided along ethnic lines…Russia wants this but the U.S wants to exploit Russian wants!

    A missile at Mach 5.5 doesn’t “scream in”. I’d expect a sound like a much closer shotgun. Then the explosion of the warhead.

    There’s much of value here reading between the lines, but the tone is so flouncingly, inanely effeminate it’s as if it’s written in Richard Simmon’s voice. Maybe he’s just a super-gamma: the utter lack of insight into when he’s being played, the absolutely childish naivete, the absurd lack of self-insight while laughably trying to front as a grizzled veteran war reporter indicate that he’s probably not actually homosexual, just a British twit.

    @Badger Down

    Sinking a capital ship in this way opens up the possibility of a de housing bombing campaign in Kiev. De housing is what the RAF did to Hamburg, Frankfurt, Cologne, Dresden, Berlin. There’s a good reason that the Russians said it was a magazine explosion caused by an internal fire. It at least allowed them to pretend the war isn’t escalating.

    A capital ship is a strategic weapon/target. Tit For Tat, Tik For Tok.

  15. @Gidoutahere

    Gidoutahere, I’m not so sure that “the American people don’t hate the Russians.” After the vast majority fell for the Covid lies for the past two years, I’m convinced that they can be programmed to hate anything that the deep state tells them to hate. How many Americans have enough knowledge of recent history to understand that the Biden Regime, filled with messianic Jewish neocons, is the true enemy of peace, not Mr. Putin? A lifetime of submitting to hysterical anti-Russia propaganda since kindergarten is a powerful thing. Vlad Putin is now Emmanuel Goldstein, enemy of the people, subjected to two minutes of daily hate.

    What kind of country is soul sick enough to allow a corrupt senile old man to bring the world to the edge of nuclear holocaust and do nothing about it? The sanctity of elections, even though illegitimate, is much more important than saving the planet. “Democracy,” all hail democracy, has brought us to the edge of collapse. As we go down for the final time, a Jewish comedian named Zelensky, who obviously cares not the Ukrainian people, has become this vile country’s national hero, and a sex symbol too. Such pitiful people we Americans are.

    BTW, loved the article. It read more like a Hemingway novel.

    No, using the methods of the enemy only turns yourself vulnerable to them. And you should also never use the platform of the enemy in the first place. (Just compare DiscloseTV on Twitter and Gettr and the disgusting responses the “better” plattform Twitter tolerates without issue. It looks like a clever strategy to let the provocation stand but not the responses. Feels like “victory”, right?)

    Just let “Western civilisation” (e.a. morons, degenerates, shills & bots) have its silly circus and “victories” on Twitter and Facebook while the rest of the world sees the facts, listens to the evidence and witnesses and knows better.

    There is a very real danger of “soft skills” taking a life of its own. It comes about when the promoter of the “spin” starts to believe the spin itself. This appears to be one of the driving factors of decay of “Western Civilisation”.

    Thankfully neither the Russians or Chinese seem to put too much over-emphasis on PR. They seem to content to let the truth speak for itself. Admittedly though, the truth seems to take a painfully long time to make itself heard over the din of Western “soft skills”.

    Personally I don’t think we have to wait more than a year or two. When Western “soft skills” are not able to correlate with reality anymore, everyone in the West will be forced to ask themselves the uncomfortable questions.

    just your name says it all.
    What a fucking Jewish bulldust!
    In essence you are propagating here Judaism with a ZionLendSki who was only mistaken by an “outlandish belief”, poor bona fide Jews who are victims (of course) in front of the background of good intending but naive Christians, good but misled Anglo-American mercenaries – “Galvanized Iron” – with The Eyes and without. Rediculous!


    To call ZionLendSki opening the prisons, randomly distributing AKs to intentionally create chaos, just as ZionLendSki was at the forefront (as Juda’s frontman) of a massive importation of Negroes and brown people to destroy white Ukraine, to belittle such giga crimes as an “outlandish belief” is supporting the negative force (Judaism & hyenas), just the way your helper scum.
    Jewmerica is forcing Russia to fight to the last Ukrainian (you mentioned that, to be here on the save side); for that you are bringing supplies and further holstering up the German remnants to support your evil deeds.
    Your host, Roman, “who is part of a worldwide Christian fellowship called Praise Chapel. I was invited by founder, John McGovern”, will hopefully together with all those other Johns’, James’ and “Good Russian Jews” get fucking nuked.
    Since the first ones will be the last ones, I am assuming as the last ones billionaire ZionLendSki, Shmyhal & ministers will either face death by assassination in Florida, execution in Kiew or Gulag.
    Jews like dialectic and pluralism, so it might be a combo of everything and the only certainty will be a death mirroring the Jews’ violence in and against the RUS and everyone else.
    Scum bags like your christian mercs, Jews and hyenas (incl. their embeded journos) must get the brunt for once.

    Russian Jews are not Jewish Russians. And if you are truly a Jewish Russian the Jew would have left you long ago an just the Russian remains. So, fuck you and your Abram and his fake “Russian”!
    By the way “Lviv” was a German town called Lemberg and the crimes, the holocausts, of the Jew (your Abram’s forbears) are hineous, otherwise it would still be Lemberg.
    Why the fuck does the old cunt run after you to tell his poor story? Did you ever ask yourself that, you very Jewmerican bad night storyteller?!

    Do not use “Nazi”, because you fucking do not know what “Nazi” is!

Your courage, in even traveling to Lvov, as I prefer to call that mostly Polakized city where the once genuinely Slavic people of Galicia have over centuries of Polish and then Austro-Hungarian domination; have been half-Westernized and thoroughly deracinated. With that history of the Waffen SS still rankling in the souls of all too many of the Banderite persuasion; all too many Galicians live on their own hatred, in many instances, self-directed subconsciously.

    Having but minutes ago on an earlier thread disputed with a pedantic Brit, your forthrightness and sense of honor and of compassion reminds me that the spirits of Shakespeare and other greats are still to be found amongst the sons of the Sceptred Isle.

    Particularly moving was the encounter with the Russian Jewish refugee from the Donbass, who has lost so much and too many to this ongoing hatred which has so gripped ever-suffering Ukraine; the very heart and soul of the land of the Rus. The “Borderlands” being the kernel of that sorrowful people.

    What kind of country is soul sick enough to allow a corrupt senile old man to bring the world to the edge of nuclear holocaust and do nothing about it?

    It’s not him. He’s just a stuffed toy. It’s the confused neo-cons.

    Ukraine was being developed from the 2014 CIA coup onwards as a launch pad against Russia. NATO infrastructure and command systems were being put in place, with the Ukrainian armed forces equipped and trained by the US military – all ready for a planned March 2022 invasion of the Donbass. Russia quickly moved troops to the border and preempted them with their own February 24th attack.

    Hence the confusion. Newly equipped and trained Ukrainian troops were supposed to be victoriously sweeping through the Donbass. Ukraine was supposed to slip into NATO with nuclear capable missile bases set up on Russia’s border. In fact, the neo-con military project is now a confused mess, with the Jewish media (in other words the whole Western media) howling in outrage rather than cheering victory – and with the hopelessly rushed economic sanctions backfiring badly on the dollar and on US client states like Germany.

    The neo-cons are furious and lashing out blindly, with their hysterical calls for war bringing the West far too close to the edge of a nuclear holocaust (a real one this time).

    If they slide over that edge, they will get their Armageddon. Putin has indicated various times that he’s ready for it, with the Russian aerospace forces recently going onto high alert and the public practicing evacuation procedures. It would represent terrible destruction for Russia but no doubt he would do it.

    Excuse me, as I’ve said it more than once on these Ukraine threads: The currently constituted Ukraine state is a Frankenstein Monster which was created by the Bolsheviks and more recently the Soviets.

    That land is not a nation.

    There does exist, a Ukrainian people, a folk who, though the most original of Russians; have suffered from being a borderlands for centuries and have been genetically altered by the Mongol hordes, taken as slaves by Tatars, Turks and Khazarians; linguistically deracinated by the Polaks; invaded by Swedes, French and Germans and screwed royally by the Babylonian Talmudist supremacists.

    You are altogether correct, Dumbo, in the need for this Frankenstein Monster, of Bolshevik and Soviet administrative design to be reorganized into its disparate nations. It is unfortunate that upon the breakup of the USSR that this administrative monstrosity was not also separated into its constituent parts.

    Russian speaking people dominate the east of the land from Kharkov, through the Donbass and then eastwards clear to the Moldovan border. Those people are Novorussians and should have independence as an associated state with the Russian Republic.

    Bits and pieces where the majority are Moldovan, Romanian, Hungarian and Slovakian should be reintegrated with those lands.

    Galicia, with its Roman Catholicized and westernized, deracinated eastern Slavs, needs to be divorced by NovoUkrania and cast out as an international pariah and as the new borderland between the Romanized Slavs of Poland and the ever faithful Orthodox Slavs of the east.

  36. @Dumbo

    Western Ukraine and Eastern Ukraine appear to hate each other.

    Well the Galicians in Western Ukraine clearly hate the ethnic Russians in Eastern Ukraine. We know that because they have been shelling them since 2014. I don’t know whether the Easterners hate the Westerners, but I suppose eight years of military aggression intended to exterminate their people might do that.

    Why not just separate?

    Because the small hat people that run the American State Deparrment will not allow it. Victoria Nudelman and Anthony Blinken are willing to fight to the last Ukrainian to prevent it.

    I find John McGovern and his son in law Paul of the Christian group “Praise Chapel” to be fascinating characters in this war time drama. Is Praise Chapel working with the mysterious US military veteran “James” to extract VIPs from the war zone or are they just (in a literal or metaphorical sense) “fellow travelers” ? Little is said directly but much is implied.
    A little googling reveals that “Praise Chapel” is an international network of churches of the charismatic Pentecostal tradition, based in Rancho Cucamonga California.
    John and his wife Pam seem to be the founder of the “Cavalry Church” in Kowloon Hon Kong and spent some years in mainland China. That may have been in the 70s or early 80s, it would be very difficult for an evangelical couple to get a visa to live and work there now.
    I don’t want to cast aspersions on anyone’s faith or to claim things I can’t prove, but if members of an evangelical church are running extraction missions for members of a politically prominent Jewish family in a war zone on another continent, then I think it’s at minimum a highly questionable use of their time and resources. And if Praise Chapel are running semi-clandestine extraction missions for VIPs in Ukraine, how do these VIPs get in touch with them ? It’s not impossible but would be a classic six degrees of separation problem. Unless of course it’s just one degree of separation that runs right through Langley Virginia or some where inside the beltway in Washington D.C.
    Again I don’t want to claim what I can’t prove but I can point out the direction in which certain logical inferences seem to be headed.
    The whole situation reminds me a lot of the paramilitary Free Burma Rangers and their founder David Eubank. He is an evangelical missionary and special forces veteran who has done clandestine work in Burma/Myanmar and has also been present in Iraq and Syria. I first became aware of him and his work from a YouTube video of himself in a refugee camp just after the fall of ISIS.
    He’s another fascinating character in a war time drama, and as is the case with all good dramas there are layers upon layers and wheels within wheels.

    There is talk that NATO command has ordered the Azov Nazis to execute the NATO foreigners trapped with them in the Azovstal plant rather than have the Russians take them alive. It would be funny if the Azov Nazis keep prodding these NATO foreigners to keep fighting and then executes them before surrendering themselves.

    Many keep saying that the Russians want to deal with Mariuopol first before sending these troops to deal with the Donbass cauldron. I think the delay is also for psychological reasons so as to be able to show the Ukrainian troops in the cauldron the destruction and/or surrender of the Ukrainian forces at Mariuopol before giving them the same choice. Maybe it will work to persuade more Ukrainians in the cauldron to surrender and maybe it won’t but it’s worth a try. The only downside I can see of the delay is that Ukrainians could send more reinforcements and NATO weapons to the cauldron but would even that be a “downside” if it would just mean more Ukrainian forces being trapped and more weapons destroyed? Obviously NATO would hope that these reinforcements and weapons could help the Ukrainians break out and drive the Russians out of Donbass but how realistic is this? Or perhaps to solidify the current defences and make it costly for the Russians to dislodge them? But then the way the Russians seem to now be doing it, slowly and methodically, would that also be of any advantage to the Ukrainian side? Other than of course in the meantime reinforcing themselves in the Western and Kiev region while delaying the Russian advance as maybe they hope to at least retain that part of the country.

    Fighting armchair generals with their own brand of hyperbole isn’t the Russian way, but I sometimes remind them that if Putin were offed, any replacement will likely turn Ukraine into a lake, and escalation at the nuclear level will probably start with the City of London.

    As a Taoist I recognize both the good and the bad offered by all religions. During this series, the hypocrisy I have witnessed applied to many western/Christian aid organizations would be a story in itself. However, John, under my usual close examination, exemplifies the good side with his sincerity and dedication especially in his temperance to all other points of view. We had a two hour dinner and I can attest to this, since I am not easily impressed.

    His worldwide network with Faith Chapel has given him many contacts because he is worthy of respect. James was not under the direction of John but is indeed a disciple of his influence, but acting under the direction of others with military connections. He is a member of a chapter of Praise Chapel and good friend of John’s. Unlike the excellent historical references you provide to the contrary, I do not believe that John has a nefarious side to his work or intentions other than to help others regardless of personal denomination.

Since no one else in the World is concerned about the 300 US BioWeapons labs in the world, the 2 dozen in Ukraine etc. – and the US gave chemical weapons to Saddam to use on the Iranians – let’s up the fear factor for those ” Novi Nato” countries that are dying to join.

    Start with the napalm and use CS before you switch to the real stuff , send a message to the Nazis that the real stuff is on it’s ways and let Nazi EU sweat it out. And if the EU doesn’t want to pay for the gaz it has stolen already – add a little CS to your pipelines before you shut down.

    People don’t realize how evil the West is – this covid killing fields isn’t over yet and enslavement is just around the corner. The Red Army was feared in the end because they were fed up and went ballistic on the Germans and others. Police Actions in a neighboring country that wants your people dead – doesn’t make it – The New Testament guys can’t beat the Old Testament guys unless you force yourself to play by the Old Testament rules. If this is your bag. I read the bible.

    Thank you very much for your thoughtful reply, I so rarely get replies from authors.
    I should make it clear that I have no reason at all to doubt Pastor McGovern’s faith, dedication or sincerity and I apologize if I made such an implication.
    As I mentioned previously I cannot assert anything as fact, I am only speculating. However, speaking hypothetically, if I were to meet a Christian evangelist that I suspected of taking instructions or money from any nation’s secret services, even if done in all good faith, I would recommend to them these two pieces of holy scripture;

    And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar’s.
    Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
    Matthew 22, 20-21

    and also;

    For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.

  74. When I indulge my imagination, I would have the Russians wait till the starving Azovstal defenders start to eat each other before allowing them to surrender.

    To each his malevolent, twisted own. When I indulge my imagination I would have the Warfare State collapse and be replaced by a new (or rather old) foreign policy model articulated by President Washington in his brilliant Farewell Address:

    In the execution of such a plan, nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated.

    The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest. Antipathy in one nation against another disposes each more readily to offer insult and injury, to lay hold of slight causes of umbrage, and to be haughty and intractable, when accidental or trifling occasions of dispute occur.

    Hence, frequent collisions, obstinate, envenomed, and bloody contests. The nation, prompted by ill-will and resentment, sometimes impels to war the government, contrary to the best calculations of policy. The government sometimes participates in the national propensity, and adopts through passion what reason would reject; at other times it makes the animosity of the nation subservient to projects of hostility instigated by pride, ambition, and other sinister and pernicious motives. The peace often, sometimes perhaps the liberty, of nations, has been the victim.

    I don’t want anyone, Ukrainian or Russian, to experience the horrors of war. But Ukraine is in Europe. Let the Ukrainians, Russians and Europeans figure it out. And in parallel the Europeans should kick the U.S. War Machine out of Europe. The Global Cop Gorilla wrecks everything that it touches.

    Well the Galicians in Western Ukraine clearly hate the ethnic Russians in Eastern Ukraine.

    Galicians were a problem to the Austrian Empire. They hate everybody. I live in a city with a large “Ukrainian” population. Large numbers came post WWI. The “Ruthenians” seemed to fit in well, but the “Galicians” have been on a crusade for Ukrainian “independence” for as long as I can remember. The butt heads with the Poles, Germans, and Hungarians as well.
    The author states:

    He readily admits to knowing of the Nazi philosophy attached to many in the Ukrainian military

    and later equates Banderists to “Nazis. There is no evidence that Bandera was a Nazi in the context of following their philosophy, and the author provides no statements as to what “Nazi philosophy” is alleged to exist in the Ukrainian military.
    The volunteer Waffen SS was composed of anti-communists from across Europe, including Sweden, Spain and Portugal. Being opposed to the communist political philosophy does not make someone a Nazi. What everyone ignores, is that the (((communist))) attempts to overthrow governments post WWI, the most obvious being in Germany and Hungary. Spain came later.

    The enclosed have no chance and are forced to stay in there by threatening commandos as the reports go from those that did manage to escape.
    The biggest opposition to the Jewkrainia regime must be by now in those tunnels beneath Asowstal.
    ZionLendSki & the Jewnighted States of Israhell have already killer commandos going around in the Ukraina and in Russia too.
    Russia could very well have several interests in getting the enclosed out alive, e.g. because they could very well be Russia’s most potential defector’s for the new Russian friendly Ukraina. And the NATO scum in there, especially the American hound dogs, are very important to show to the world too. I hope Russia gets this US general alive. Would that not be a beauty to contend with? Maybe he is the reason for the imprisonment of the leading opposition leader in Kiew, whose party had a majority and was prohibited by the Jew. No one needs this war apart from the Jew (and Jewmerican army scum).

    Does burning people alive not have a very particular and very bad American taste?

Several of its native born became the premier of the entire freekin’ Soviet Union, including the Khruschev mischief maker who left this legacy of Crimea by “gifting” it to the Ukies who never lived there nor developed it. Once Ukraine finally got its only independence in all of history after the fall of the Soviet state, it completely screwed the pooch and collapsed its economy because of all the rampant corruption in that pseudo-nation, population by a nearly equal number of Russians. All it knew how to do in the energy sector was to steal gas from the Russians and bellyache about the unfairness of it all when the Ukies, in fact, were the free riders–as always.

    First of all because it did not have it then. It could have been granted, but the Chechens being a proud people decided to take it, instead of asking for it.

    On 6 September 1991, militants of the All-National Congress of the Chechen People stormed a session of the Supreme Soviet of the Checheno-Ingush Autonomous Republic, with the aim of asserting independence. The storming caused the death of the head of Grozny’s branch of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, who was defenestrated or fell while trying to escape.

    The Chechens came in and grabbed that man, and threw him out of the window. This was the reason for the war that then followed.

    Thanks, Curmudgeon. My limited knowledge of 20th Century German history leads me to believe that a lot of the German support for Hitler’s NSDAP was due to simple opposition to the small-hat-dominated Communist Partei. Nobody wanted to have those people rule over them and the NSDAP was the only alternative at the time. (Nobody wants those people to rule over them today.)

    It is perverse that today it is the small-hats who dominate the Ruling Class and therefore American foreign policy. The Galicians who allied themselves with the NSDAP in the 1940s to oppose small-hat Russian Communism now find themselves allied with the small-hat dominated American State Department against the Christian Russian Federation.

    Today the Galicians today have zero agency. They are completely the tools of State Department small-hats Victoria Nudelman and Anthony Blinken. These people are willing to fight to the last Galician to achieve their goals.

    Putin’s achievements so far:

    In the space of a few days, Putin’s vaporized 200 years of anti-Polish propaganda (of Austrian, German, Russian and Soviet Russian provenance) in the Ukraine. He’s led the Ukrainians to take up arms against their so-called Russian brothers in order to defend their country. The Ukrainians are now doing what the Poles did in 1920 during the Polish-Soviet War, when relatively few Ukrainians were willing to fight the Red Army. Without the Ukrainian “brother nation” under its thumb, the Russian Empire’s days are numbered. Unfortunately for Putin, the Chinese general staff are watching all this.

    What Germany and Russia really wanted was a return to what they had in the good old days, i.e. when Bismarck was in charge. Good old German-Russian imperial friendship at the cost of Poland and all the other smaller countries of Eastern Europe. In other words, a German-Russian Condominium. That had been Putin’s offer to Germany all along and Merkel wholeheartedly accepted it by building gas pipelines together with Russia on the bed of the Baltic Sea. Fortunately, these plans can be foiled by accelerating the process of bolstering Eastern-European integration at the cost of the neo-imperial interests of Germany and Russia.

    Britain and America now see that the best way to foil Merkel and Putin’s joint scheme to set up a German-Russian Condominium is to make a future united Eastern Europe “great again”. And that’s *exactly* why Putin has now invaded the Ukraine. Last year’s demonstrations in Belarus sounded all the alarm bells in his evil imperial mind. A strong and united Eastern Europe — a resurrection of the old Polish Commonwealth in some new form — is Germany’s and Russia’s worst nightmare.

    Putin’s also making exactly the same mistake as Stalin. Just as Hitler’s eyes were firmly fixed on Russia and especially the fertile lands of the Ukraine — the German equivalent of Britain’s India, as he used to say in his private conversations — the eyes of today’s Chinese leaders are also firmly fixed on all that Lebensraum which is temporarily owned by a mere handful of Russians. The conclusion to be drawn is obvious. It’ll be interesting to see who ultimately is surprising whom when the first missiles are fired.

    Putin will go down in history as the man who finally destroyed Russia and Russia’s final gift to the world: communism.

    After having bad-mouthed TruNews & Rick Wiles, that network is a source for documents-based discussion of the “plan to establish a new state of Israel in Ukraine.”

    It appears to be very real and to have begun to be made public at about the same time as Neocon Nuland offered (Purim?) cookies at Maidan.

    TruNews discussed the re-location plan in two Godcast episodes, on


    Started to prepare a transcript but got lost in the weeds.

    However —
    The first telecast, “Moses Zelensky?”, began with a video of Palestinian scholar Mraweh Nassar commenting (in Arabic, with subtitles) on The Plan.
    Here’s a transcript, taken from the subtitles:

    “The Jews now claim biblical Jerusalem is located in Ukraine. The Israelis have turned to the East. They now want Russia and China because America has forsaken them. (America) has told them in short: Your (zionist) project is a failure, and you are bound to come to an end — if not this year, then the next. The Americans understand that they are supporting a failed project, so (the Israelis) are looking for an alternative, which can be Russia or (China). So they would not destroy their relations with Russia or (China) over a handful of Jews. As far as they are concerned, those (Ukrainian) Jews can go to Hell.
    Even the Jews themselves, including Lieberman and Netanyahu are now convinced that Palestine cannot be the state for the Jews. So they started saying that holly Jerusalem is in Ukraine and not in Palestine. Ukraine is now the candidate to become the future Jewish state.

    Perhaps one of the reasons they instigated this war was to empty out Ukraine. The West is now convinced that the (Jewish) state is doomed, that the (zionist) enterprise has failed. What is the solution, then?

    That Israel will be adopted by Russia and China instead of by the West, or that there will be an alternate state.
    The whole world knows about the Jewish state in eastern Ukraine. I remembered that there were 43,000 (Jews) there, but now they say 200,000. It is an independent state, and they did not want to spread the word about it so they would not be told to go there rather then [sic] come to Palestine.
    Why did the holocaust really happen? Leave aside everything that is being said.
    During World War II, some of the Jews joined the Americans and the West and others joined Germany. They said, If the Germans win, we are with Germany,
    And if the West wins, we are with the West.
    Hitler found out that there were (Jewish) spies so he killed some of them. It was not hundreds of thousands like they say, These are all lies.

    They are now saying that the Temple and biblical Jerusalem are located in Ukraine and not in Palestine.
    If this does not work tomorrow they will say that they are in the Netherlands.”

    Wiles and Doc Burkhart followed up with references from several Israeli newspapers and other outlets dating back to about. 2014, in addition to comments by American Jewish ‘leaders’ from as far back as 2012.

    As usual, I got snared in a rabbit hole, tracking down Life of Jews in Ukraine which devolved into ‘Whatever happened to the Jewish project in BiroBidjan?;” the extent to which Jewish and suborned US leaders trace a pattern very similar to the provocation of WWI and WWII with consequent destruction of several nations, peoples and cultures to achieve their Palestine-based FataMorgan, etc.

    My tentative conclusions are that: The Palestinian scholar may be engaged in wishful thinking. (I wonder if Taxi at Platos Gunscan be coaxed. out of “Hiatus” to offer insight on this?)

    It seems entirely consistent with zionist practice to pursue such a plan, but I do not believe for an instant that Jews intend to give up zionized Palestine and relocate to Ukraine; they’ll try to take both.

    Instead of taking all of the land and genociding Ukrainians (as per the published plan), they will try to finish their many years ongoing invasion and theft of Donbas and Luhansk).

    But the Russian orcs are really struggling agains the men of the West.

    “Fighting to the last Ukrainian” — oh how clever, how passive aggressive threatening, the hidden propagandistic assumption — so impressive!

    If the Putin goes nuclear terrorist, the world will, immediately or after some preparation, put an end to the raggedy-bear.

    In fact, if Putin was smart (and he obviously isn’t), but if SOMEBODY in Russia was smart they would disable ALL the tactical nukes right now, and invite international inspectors in to verify.

    All bullshit of course, but what if, what if somebody did a real false flag, exploded a small nuke in Ukraine, blamed the bear and exterminated Russian with a massive global strike?

    Better for Russians to admit they made a big mistake, ceasefire retreat and pay reparations than to run their big mouths with nuclear threats until the dreaded “Globalist Evil Powers” put a false flag nuke fist in the Bear’s big mouth followed by a nuclear extermination knock-out blow.

It was the representative of the Kagans’ clan of rabid Zionists and warmongers, who had established the open collaboration with Banderites (self-proclaimed Ukrainian Nazis) in 2014. For the long eight years, the zionized US government has been encouraging the Banderites to murder the pro-federalists living in eastern Ukraine while, at the same time, prohibiting their puppets-in-presidency to implement the Minsk agreements that would stop immediately the civil war.

    The stupid Banderites are used as a battering ram by American Jude-Nazis in a Judea war against Russia. The Zionized US government has committed grave crimes by maintaining the illegal bio-weaponry labs on the territory of Ukraine. At these biolabs, American specialists conducted subhuman experiments on the local populations.

    As for the alleged brotherly love between Poles and Banderites, the Volynya massacre is not forgotten. Just wait when Ukrainian Zio-Nazis receive a well-deserved lesson in morality from the Poles.

    Canada’s history of promoting anti-Russian Ukrainian nationalism

    ”As Freeland highlights, Canada has nurtured ultranationalist forces who vehemently oppose relations between Ukraine and Russia.

    The Canadian military directly assisted the Ukrainian far right. In June 2018 Canada’s military attaché in Kiev, Colonel Brian Irwin, met privately with officers from the Azov battalion, which uses the Nazi “Wolfsangel” symbol and praises officials who helped slaughter Jews and Poles during World War II. Rather than express public disagreement with their views, Canadian military officials sought to manage any potential public relations fallout from at least two meetings, which included Azov representatives boasting about their Canadian support. A September report from an institute at George Washington University revealed that the far-right Centuria also boasted about being trained by some of the 200 Canadian troops in the Ukraine. The report detailed Centuria members making Nazi salutes, praising SS units and promoting white supremacy.

    Canadian training of the Ukrainian military, including the far right, assisted Kyiv in ignoring its obligations under the Minsk agreements designed to overcome the violence and division caused by the ouster of Yanukovych in 2014. Negotiated by France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine, Minsk I and II proposed a more federalist Ukrainian politics to end the war in the Donbas region. Ostensibly, the Canadian government supported Minsk II, which was unanimously endorsed by the United Nations Security Council. But in practice Ottawa built up a Ukrainian security apparatus that blocked its implementation.”

    The Jewish Zelensky may be happy to tolerate Nazis in Ukraine, and the US neocons/neoliberals will will continue to fund them, precisely until most of the inhabitants have become refugees. The MidEast has been a rough neighborhood for the Zionists. There’s been talk of a relocation for years.

    I didn’t see where I offered any apologies for Judeo-Nazis, just that I felt the situation would be better if Russia had stayed within it’s own borders. That being said, I do believe “Nazi” is thrown about for effect, much like “racist”, “misogynist” or “homophobe” are hurled by leftists to denigrate those that oppose their agenda.

    “You feign total ignorance of the Jewish origin of Bolshevism in the Russian Empire. This is what makes you so obvious. You are a committed hasbarist.”

    I don’t like communists, and I’m aware that many of the early communists were of jewish origin. I oppose the outsized influence zionists have around the world, and in the U.S. in particular, so calling me a “committed hasbarist” is a mistake. You would not be mistaken in saying I do not perceive as much jewish influenced maneuvering in the russia-ukraine conflict as you do, but then we are all entitled to our own perceptions and opinions.

    They died “protecting” (resp. very often fleeing from) the violent Jew and his BS before and after 1945, as a matter of fact they are dying today because of the Jewish BS and not because of “Nazi”.
    Who is making ZionLendSki a hero in the US?
    Abducted Medvedchuk and polit party were leading in the Ukrainian polls.
    ZionLendSki is president because of the illegal incarceration of Nadiya Savchenko, a Uki patriot (“Nazi”) wanting peace with Russia like all brained Nazis would. Hooligans are a subject for (missed) kindergarden or parental home (incl. holodomized grand or great grandparents).
    Why do you think Russia seems somehow pained with every ordinary Ukranian (incl. soldier) suffering and dying?
    Why do you think Russia is focusing on military installations and not Ukrainians per se?
    Because it is a brother war initiated by Satan’s creatures on earth.
    Nazis are not Satan’s people. The Grand Nazi is the Christ. Is!
    3 million Germans POWs helped build and died building a better USSR.
    How many “GIs” (womit) helped rebuild Vietnam?
    As a matter of fact the GIs are screwing Vietnam to this very day, which I happen to know from personal experience etc. pp.
    But Russia has and of course should have its own “history” and so should the Uki Nazi’s be allowed to tell their own stories (his stories), because they too do have stories. It must not be a problem. It becomes a problem the moment one is not allowed to share his grievance (not even with his own).
    We get jailed – under the eyes of salivating “GIs” – when speaking truth an being found out.
    You can only have a victory if you make someone else the loser.
    You can only be “the good guy” if you make someone else “the bad guy”.
    It is a weak spot on Russian self esteem and I know why, but why bother haggling.
    Do you stirr around in a brother’s wound? No, you help him to heal and get rid of the bandage.
    One day Russia will no longer need the bandage of a “Victory Day” (at the cost of the other) and happily celebrate its great military traditions (to which “Nazis” contributed enormously and leaders like the Putin know that too).

    From 1981 onwards, the United States began to let its debt slip away. It went from 40% of its GDP to 130% today. They tried to globalize the world economy, i.e., to impose their rules on the solvent countries and to destroy the state structures of the remaining countries (the Rumsfeld/Cebrowski strategy).

    To pay their debt, they printed dollars, spied on the companies of their allies, and stole all the reserves of two big oil states, Iraq and Libya. Nobody dared to say anything, but from 2003 onwards, the US economic system was no longer what it claimed to be. Officially they were still liberal, but everyone could see that they were no longer producing their own food and necessities and that they were living on rapine.

    Let’s suppose they are caught, taken to a trial (well covered by all the press, both sides) then condemned to be hanged.
    Russia could then propose to spare their lives and give a lesser punishment, eg 20y prison or more, in exchange for full public confessions and exposing some very “inconvenient” things. I am quite sure the convicted will gladly accept, and at that time it would be impossible to dismiss (even in the west) what they have to say.

If they choose to continue with an insurgency, it’s only to be expected.

    This war promoted by West in Ukraine looks a rerun of the Paraguay’s war in the 19th century. Ninety percent of Paraguay’s men died in that war. The West will not allow its puppet of Ukraine to settle for anything. This is madness. Thus, the only ending possible of this war in Ukraine will be like Paraguay faced in the 19th century.

    The six-year War of the Triple Alliance (1864-1870), in which Paraguay confronted the combined forces of Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, had inflicted apocalyptic damage on the landlocked nation.

    Roughly two-thirds of Paraguay’s population perished during the conflict, including around 90% of its men. Brazil and Argentina would go on to annex enormous swaths of Paraguayan territory.

    The famine nicknamed Holodomor had another cause which is missing in any speculations about it. Apart from poor weather and poor harvest, it happened in the midst of the Soviet government’s ambitious industrialization program. All the machinery and hardware could only be obtained from the West, and it was paid for in pure gold. However, in 1932 the West refused to accept gold and demanded wheat instead. The Communist government was not inclined to undermine it industrialization plans and had to comply. Coupled with bad yields, the country faced tremendous shortages of bread. The worst affected areas stretched from Kazakhstan, central Russia all the way to Ukraine (and the number of people who died of starvation in Russia was more than that in Ukraine). However, there were no uprisings or riots (there may be several reasons, one of them being recent memories of similar events in the 1920s when tens of thousands starving children were moved from the Volga regions in Russia to Ukraine to save them from hunger). Thus there was no outright threat to the government, and no regime change. Upon seeing this trick did not work, the West dropped its demand to pay in bread for its hardware, and in the following year switched back to gold.

    Interestingly, Holodomor also affected Lvov and other parts of Ukraine which were not part of the Soviet Union until 1939, in this case the causes were the weather and low yields (and maybe some political developments in those countries). Yet the folks in Lvov also commemorate their 1933 hunger deaths and attribute them entirely to the Soviet Union. Logic is something unknown to them, as well as to some UNZ commenters.

    If we go by the standars of warfare USA set in its war against Japan, Russia has every right to nuke two Ukrainian cities, Kiev and Lvov, because:

    – Like the Jap’s Unit 731, Ukrainians are conducting evil biowarfare research in their laboratories.

    – Like the Japs, the Ukrainians are murdering and torturing POWs.

    – Like the Japs, the Ukrainians are offering insane resistance and most are following orders of their supreme commander, the Khazar Zelensky acting here the emperoror Hirohito, to fight to the death even though resistance is futile.

    In some respects the Ukrainians are worse that the Japs since they’re killing their own citizens, while the Japs did that mostly to the Chinese.

    So just like US wanted to spare its troops fighting for every inch of Japan, I don’t see Russia using nukes being any more reprehensible. But like Lavrov says they won’t as they want to occupy the moral high ground. They should just drop all the old dumb bombs from their warehouses on Ukrainian military formations wherever they find them as they’ll be replacing them with smart missiles anyway. So carpet bombing of those in the Dombass cauldron should be part of Phase 2.

    According to the RUS MoD over 23,000 of your comrades are registered as dead. The republics are already feeding and healing over 3,000 of your comrades.
    Maybe it is better that you show beneficial courage and start looking after your families by staying alive instead of dying for the fucking Jew, who sticks it up your ass any day and has sent your women and children already to alien countries to be used and misused. So much for your patriotism!

The homoerotic Jewish monstrosity has empowered the Nazi death squads founded by his boss Kolomojsky (a President of the Jewish Community of Ukraine and Israeli citizen).

    The Jewish protege in Ukraine:

    “Volyn massacre”: the most terrible crime of Bandera:

    in the Spring of 1941 the Organization of Ukrainian nationalists labored manual called “Fight of the OUN activities* during the war”. It was painted in detail the issue of “service BEZPEKA” … in this document it was said that Ukraine hostile elements must be destroyed by any means. in 1943, the dogs unleashed. The chief “service BEZPEKA” Mykola Lebed took the initiative of cleansing the territory from the Poles. The tip of the OUN (banned in Russia) is approved. Although the oppression of the Polish population in Volhynia and throughout Western Ukraine began much earlier.

    First ventured Peter Nesterovich. With subordinate nationalist squad, he decided to cut cleaned Polish village Parole (near Vladimirets, Rivne region). … Before killing women, the nationalists had raped them, then cut off the noses, ears and chest. Men dealt with axes. Over two brothers-teenagers by the name of Gershkevich who tried to escape and call for assistance to Soviet partisans mocked with cruelty. They cut off the hands and legs, ripped stomach, and a wound filled with salt. Then the unfortunate were thrown into a field to die. Only in the village, killing 173 Poles, among them 43 children. They spared not even a one-year-old baby. They nailed him with a bayonet to the table… .

    behind Parole came under attack another Polish village Lipniki. With the locals massacred a detachment of Ivan Litvinchuk, better known as Oak. They completely massacred a village, killing 179 poles (51 of them children). … Then it cut the population of the village of Kuta, the village Katarinovka… And Ukrainian nationalists killed not only the Poles, but, as they called them, “nedoukraintsev”, that is, people of mixed marriages. To “apostates” nationalists were treated with particular cruelty.

    After WWII, Banderites were taken to Canada. There, they hold regular Nazi parades and built Nazi memorials. The Jewish Communities of Canada and the US did not object. Banderites were feted and cared for to become cannon fodder in a war against Russia. Zionists love Banderites, don’t you see?

    Poland Déjà vu
    The Jewish war over Novorussia and Ukraine as a whole seems to me like a repeat of the prehistory of the Second Jewish World War.
    Poland had terrorized and murdered the German population in the German homelands; (German territories illegally added to Poland by the Jewish dictate of Versailles).
    By September 1, 1939, Poland had expelled over one million Germans from Prussia (!) and cruelly murdered approximately 65,000 Germans.
    The war over Donbass/Novorussia seems the prelude to the Third Jewish World War.
    “Stretching Russia” with the goal of finally destroying, dividing and dismembering Russia in order to encircle and control China as the final building block of the complete Jewish New World Order.
    “Nazis” are waging a Jewish war for their own destruction.
    The “Red Army” appears more “Nazi” this time, trying to stop the Jewish organized terror against the peoples on both sides of the Jewish erected fences and divisions.
    Stop the Jewish divide & conquer. Russian victory will be Ukrainian victory too.

    I’m not justifying anything. I live in a city with a significant population of Ukrainians/Galicians and Poles that came post Soviet takeover a century ago. For the most part, they hate each other, and virtually every other ethnic group. Fifty years ago, the local soccer league had to force many of these ethnic clubs to accept “other” players in an attempt to de-ethnicize the teams in order to stop the games that turned into bloodbaths on the field and fights in the stands.
    Do you think all of the Paddy bars in New York with their cash collection buckets for donations to the IRA were for the love of the English? I live in the real world, not Utopia. Some ethnic groups hate other ethnic groups. I have no control over what other people chose or choose to do.

  227. @annamaria

    I live in Canada, in a city and province with a substantial “Ukrainian” population, along with many other large ethnic populations, including Jews. The “Banderite” mentality was here during and post WWI. At the time, they were called Galicians by my father’s generation. They were shit disturbers from the start, and went to great lengths to try to remain “separate” like the Jews (and Poles to an extent). I have yet to see or hear about a “Nazi parade” in my 73 years. Virtually every ethnic group here has some sort of “festival” over a summer weekend that has a parade. The Ukrainians have a very large one in a town about 4 hours drive from here, and yes there is a parade.
    Yes, many came post WWII, and I went to school with several who became good friends. About half made fun of their parents being stuck in the “old country”. I worked summers in a factory full of Ukrainians, Poles, Hungarians, and other Europeans. I saw the friction between them. That was at a time when immigrants were pressed to conform with the majority the “English” or “French”. What they did in their homes was their own business. It is only since Canada went multicultural that the hyphenated Canadian has come out in full force – and out of control. That is why I often link Rabbi Sacks’ quote of “Multiculturalism Threatens Democracy”.
    I accept that bad things were done before, during, and after WWII, but the trend is to highlight only certain groups or activities selectively as the case may be. That the Poles were ethnically cleansing West Prussia and other German territories during the 1920s and 30s is ignored. That the Czechs were doing it to ethnic Germans and Hungarians is ignored. This crap has been going on for centuries. I used “arrogant Poles”, because the idiot Marshal Edward Rydz-Śmigły refused to recognize the League of Nations mandate over Danzig (95%+German), refused an offer of a plebiscite over West Prussia (the Danzig corridor) and ordered mobilization of the Polish army declaring they would be in Berlin within a week. That didn’t work out well for them.
    These old hatreds, including the Irish hating the English (and sometimes Scots) continue to this day – unfortunately.

    I agree with you.
    However, Bandritese were indeed nurtured by the Canadian and American governments with the tacit approval of the Canadian and American Jewish Communities.

    The Bandera network:
    The profitable schema of holobiz has tons of documents in holobiz museums about Stepan Bandera and his punitive expeditions against Jews (and Poles). Babiy Yar is quite a famous place in Ukraine, whcih Jews used to revere (before the Kagans clam went into full collaboration with Ukrainian Nazis).

    Here is a monument to a famous Nazi collaborator Roman Shukhevych. Another local monument is a memorial honoring the 14th Waffen SS Division filled with Ukrainian collaborators.

    There has been open Jewish hunting on people who served in the German army as teens. Yet a progeny of a famous Nazi collaborator Chomyak has become a de facto ruler of Canada with the blessing of Jews in the Canadian Parliament.

    German military records have been found in a Polish government archive in Warsaw revealing that Michael Chomiak, maternal grandfather of Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, volunteered to serve in the German invasion of Poland long before the German Army attacked the Soviet Union and invaded Ukraine.

    Chomiak’s records show he was trained in Vienna for German espionage and propaganda operations, then promoted to run the German press machine for the Galician region of Ukraine and Poland during the 4-year occupation. So high-ranking and active in the Nazi cause was Chomiak that the Polish intelligence services were actively hunting for Chomiak until the 1980s – without knowing he had fled for safety to an Alberta farm in Canada.

    The papers reveal Chomiak’s enthusiastic writing in wartime media in Cracow and Chelm, as the German concentration camps nearby at Belzec, Majdanek, Sobibor and Auschwitz destroyed the populations of the Polish cities, of Jewish Lvov (Lviv), and of the Galician region which Chomiak sought to cleanse for his vision of Ukrainian independence, backed by German arms.

    And yet his progeny, the anti-Christ Freeland, is loved, loved by American Ziocons because this ghastly woman was so good at preparing and “cooking” Ukrainian Banderites for the role of cannon fodder in the Judea War against Russia.

    Western Ukraine is one of those regions where, for various reasons eg religious hatred, racial hatred, social hatreds, numerous changes of overlords, economic exploitation, wars and civil wars etc, a certain group became imbued with the hatred of others, xenophobia, to a very savage degree.
    This group in West Ukraine gave birth to the Banderites who spent WW2 murdering civilians, Poles, Jews, Russians etc, then, when crushed by the Red Army, they were recruited by the World Evil Hegemon, the USA, and allowed refuge in the West, principally the Anglosphere.
    There they brought up their children deeply saturated in hatred, and when the imbecile Gorbachev allowed them to return, and the Quisling traitor Yeltsin allowed ‘Ukraine’ to secede, they had their Kingdom of Hatred at last. Then, aided, abetted and financed by the USA, UK and other Western forces, they set to work to isolate, disempower and alienate the large Russian community, and the community of intermarriage, plus the smaller Hungarian, Azov Greek and other minority communities. The USA staged a Colour Revolution in 2005, to forestall the pro-Russian Yanukovich, but he won again in 2010, so the US went the whole hog in 2013-4, with a new Colour Revolution climaxing in a fascist putsch against the democratically elected Yanukovich.
    Whereupon the putsch regime and its Nazi death-squads massacred civilians, attacked the Donbass, outlawed Russian as a second language, banned pro-Russian parties, arrested or disappeared journalists, drove two million from the Donbass into exile in Russia, and made Ukraine the world centre for neo-Nazi training and indoctrination. All financed and aided DIRECTLY by the West. The Minsk I and Minsk II agreements were completely ignored by the Ukronazi regime, and they prepared for a blitzkrieg against the Donbass, when Russia, finally intervened.
    ALL this horror has been TOTALLY supported by the West, its ruling elites and the MSM vermin. Indeed a TOTALITARIAN pall has descended on discourse in the ‘Free World’, lunatic excesses like banning the letter Z, and firing those who, incidentally, spell it out in cheese, banning Russian tennis players from Wimbledon etc, have gripped the Western dystopias, all showing, quite clearly, how deranged these societies are, and how much they value and wish to protect those who worship Hitler and murder and torture with pleasure. The Evil of the West has always been plain to those willing to think for themselves, but now its is screaming in our faces like a blood-besotted banshee.

    People from across Europe “collaborated” with Germany when joining the Waffen SS or the German military. That does not equate with them being “Nazis”. People across Europe saw the Soviets and communists – as a grave danger to themselves. The governments of the UK and France saw Germany as an economic threat to their corrupt elite system. The Poles were played like a fiddle by the ZOGs of France, the UK, and the US.
    As I mentioned, people of Bandera’s mindset were already in Canada, and rabidly anti-Soviet Communist, but entirely open to their own version of collectivism. Like every other pernicious ethnic based philosophy, these people infiltrated all of Canada’s political parties, and will partner with whomever they need to, including Jews, to push their agenda. The ones “collaborating” with Germany, 90 years ago, saw it as a means to an end. An old ultra-liberal boss of “Ukrainian” heritage openly acknowledged that there was an historical mistrust between Jews and Ukrainians. A Jewish friend says his grandmother called Ukrainians “ganef” – thief. My point is that these issues were there along before the NSDAP was even formed. People with agendas will attach themselves to any movement they think will serve their purpose. The NSDAP were anti-communist despite the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The communists, to the Galicians, were the Jews and Russians they already detested and wanted to obliterate. Beyond that, they couldn’t be “Nazis” because the NSDAP had made it clear that they were a German solution for German problems, and the philosophy was not for export. Stalin’s starvation of millions made it a natural choice for these types to join the war against the people they already hated.

    Perhaps you should not shy from the r0le of Jewish Bolsheviks in the Russian, Ukrainian, Kazakh, et cet. tragedies. The ongoing collaboration of Bandrites and Jews in the Nazification of Ukraine should not be shunned.

    I understand your concern about the purity of definitions, but for now, there is no other definition but “Nazi” or “neo-Nazi” to explain what has been going on in Ukraine since the Ziocon putsch in 2014. Moreover, the “freedom fighters” at the Kolomojsky-created death squads (Azov, Aidar, Dnipro) use Nazi insignias and call themselves Nazis. Let’s stick this to their Zionist sponsors: Biden and Pelosi (self-proclaimed Zionists), Clintons, Bush, Obama, the AIPAC’s luminaries Schumer, Cardin, Schiff, Nader, and other Klobuchar and Haines.

    By the way, many German Nazis were dignified, decent people. These adjectives – “dignified, decent” – are not applicable to the Ukrainian “Nazis” who use civilians as human shields and cut fingers and genitalia in POWs. For obvious reasons, the adjectives “dignified and decent” are also inapplicable to the Zionist sponsors of Banderites.

      The CIA is overseeing a secret intensive training program in the U.S. for elite Ukrainian special operations forces and other intelligence personnel, according to five former intelligence and national security officials familiar with the initiative. The program, which started in 2015, is based at an undisclosed facility in the Southern U.S., according to some of those officials.

    The program has involved ‘very specific training on skills that would enhance’ the Ukrainians’ ‘ability to push back against the Russians,’ said the former senior intelligence official.

    The training, which has included ‘tactical stuff,’ is ‘going to start looking pretty offensive if Russians invade Ukraine,’ said the former official.

    One person familiar with the program put it more bluntly. ‘The United States is training an insurgency,’ said a former CIA official, adding that the program has taught the Ukrainians how ‘to kill Russians.’”
