So, The Times is writing that the “Azov” Nazis are changing their Nazi symbology to something more… neutral. Never mind what is in their actual heads – the hatred, the chants of “Ukraine above all”, and all the rest of the Nazi packaging. According to the NATO mouthpiece The Time, it’s only about the symbols, not the actions. And The Times admits that “Azov2” is using the neo-Nazi symbology, but according to them, that is not the problem – the British establishment loves Nazis – it’s that the “Russian propaganda” is “exploiting” this fact that is the problem in their eyes!
In any case, the Blue-Yellow flag of Ukraine (The Ukro-Reich) is more and more equalled to the Red-White-Black flag of the Third Reich, so in all honesty, such rebranding does not help. If a country named “Ukraine” remains” after all is said and done, then it will have to do a deep soul-searching, healing and, yes, a change in its state symbology. Just like what Germany – at least its Eastern part – did after WWII.
This is the popular reaction to this change of clothing, ridiculing this Boggart. Apparently, if one follows the same logic, if only Hitler changed this symbols in time, everything would have been all right
But what can one expect from the Anglo-Saxon/American establishment, who did not see the problem with the Nazis even before WWII…
In the picture below once can see the Wolfsangel symbol – the future marking of the ukro-Nazi “Azov” battalion:
More pictures follow after the translation of the Telegram post below. Note that the USA already did that in the Middle East with the “moderate headchoppers”, sorry, “rebels”.
This post will be a sticky list pointing to the independent, critical thinking journalists, analysts and sources of information on the conflict in Eastern Ukraine / Donbass / Novorossia. These resources proved themselves to be reporting what they see on the ground and are not beholden to the NATO-agenda of the Western MSM. But before we proceed, here is a list of Telegram channels with the running news feeds:
Not much room for humour today… The Ukrainian army did another deliberate terrorist strike with the American-supplied 155mm M-777 howitzers (per early reports) at the civilian areas in Donetsk and Makeevka, targeting school, kindergarten, residential areas. 5 people are dead, and 12 wounded, as per the latest reports. One of the killed is a child, born in 2009
This constitutes a war crime on the Ukrainian part, with USA being an accessory to murder. Later reports talk about rocket artillery “Smerch” with cluster warheads (war crime when used against civilian targets!).
UPDATE 31.05.2022: The dastardly Ukrainian terrorist attack on THREE SCHOOLS yesterday was premeditated by Ukraine – 30th of May is traditionally the end of school year, a time when both kids, their parents and teachers gather at schools to celebrate. This year such celebrations of the school-year-end were prudently cancelled. If not, the death toll among the children would have been hundred-fold!
UPDATE! Ukraine is on a murderous spree. A new artillery attack, this time striking a playground in Stahanov town in Lugansk, left two pregnant women dead, 15 people, including 4 children wounded!
The moment of the artillery strike was captured on video when an interview was conducted at a house nearby:
UPDATE 31.05.2022: 2 killed including 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL by Ukrainian army strike in Makeevka, Donetsk People’s Republic.
I wanted to make another intermission post with a collection of memes and caricatures that capture the essence of the conflict in the Souther-Russian lands. The previous such post was a colelction of bear-poking caricatures: Don’t poke the bear.
A comment from Tim showed that the time is ripe:
Please take a look at this funny picture, telling the truth about the Ukrainian nazis. . ..
And in web archive, just in case it gets deleted …
I am continuing to pick out and translate history-related materials that resonate with today’s events. This time, let’s take a closer look at Poland, especially after their forceful demand that Norway, presumably making itself rich on higher gas prices, should “coughs up some cash” for Ukraine, their military entering the conflict in Ukraine, their statement that Poland and Ukraine will not have any border soon, and Zelensky pushing through a law for the special status of Poles in Ukraine, which opens up for the absorption of former Ukraine (or what’s left of it) into Poland.
The article I am translating appeared on Ren.TV site on the 23nd of May 2022:
The investigation of the Russian IC may have unexpected consequences for Warsaw.
Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Marcin Przidac said that in the coming days Warsaw will consider reducing the level or completely severing diplomatic relations with Russia. This is how the Polish Foreign Ministry reacted to the decision of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation to launch an investigation into the crimes of Polish mercenaries on the territory of the Lugansk People’s Republic.
Indignation was also caused by the decision of the IC to investigate the attack on the Russian ambassador to Poland, Sergei Andreev. On May 9, the Russian diplomat laying wreaths at the graves of Soviet soldiers in Warsaw was attacked by a crowd of Poles and Ukrainians waiting for him. At the same time, the Polish law enforcement agencies demonstratively did nothing, making no attempts to protect the ambassador. According to Marcin Pzhidach, “the diplomat himself is to blame for this attack.” He allegedly provoked the attackers by his appearance.
At the same time, the Polish official was clearly let down by ignorance of his own law. Indeed, from the point of view of the Polish legislation, diplomatic relations with the Russian Federation have long been severed. Moreover, legally Poland considers itself in a state of war with Russia.
Such a situation arose when Poland proclaimed itself the Third Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (Rzeczpospolita), and a norm appeared in the Polish Constitution, according to which the country is considered the successor of the Second Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (Rzeczpospolita).

Those who read my previous posts and translations, know that I give preference to the review of the historical events and only address the events on the “battlefield” when they intertwine with the larger historical perspective. It’s been observed by many (and I’ve seen it on at least one example myself), that Russian people, who were born and raised in some central Russian region, upon moving to Ukraine and settling there become ardent Ukrainians with all what that entails, like denial of their Russian heritage. And conversely, when a person from Ukraine moves to Russia, after a few years they become perfectly normal, reasonable people. It’s become so obvious that people joke that something must be added to the drinking water in Ukraine for people to loose their minds there.
This is also a reason why “Ukrainian” is more and more viewed by people in Russia not as a nationality but as a belonging to a sect. Becauase people who live in the Southern Russia, Rus Minor, Novorossia are just that – Russians, who tragically became reprogrammed to turn them into anti-Russians.
And thus there is a growing tendency of speaking of “Ukraine” in the same sense as one now speaks of “The Third Reich” – both are seemingly designations of the countries, yet at the same time they now both carry the exact same stigma.
This post is about the Northern-Eastern, historically, Russian town of Harkov, which has seemingly been turned into a bastion of “anti-Russian-ness”. My previous translation that touched upon this city was that of the NTV documentary, where the political prisoner of SBU, the professor of Harkov University was interviewed: Zelensky Is Hiding This – NTV Documentary, 20.03.2022 (English Subtitles).
Today I came across a much deeper analysis of the situation in Harkov, an analysis which was written following the demolition of the statue to king (knjaz) Alexandr Nevsky in Harkov. It’s an article, filled both with resolve and with sadness for brothers lost. But I think there is hope, based exactly on what I wrote about in the first paragraph – in de-ukrainiasation of the Russians for them to become Russians once again.
The Ukro-NATO handled Ukro-Nazis from the “Azov” battalion who’s been sitting blocked in the basements of Azovstal plant for weeks, surrendered unconditionally yesterday. First about 300 wounded were taken to the medical facilities in LNR. Next, the remainder of the neo-Nazis started to surrender and are being transferred to the processing facilities in the town Elenovka. Some of them will be sent to Russia to stand trial there, some will face trials in DNR and LNR (which, unlike Russia, do not have a moratorium on death penalty in place).
Incidentally, Ukraine shelled today the prison facilities in Elenovka, firing 10 artillery shells. It looks like Kiev wants to see those “Azovites” dead and not talking.
Special reportages right from the edge of Azovstal by Graham Phillips:
The militants of “Azov” and the AFU continue to surrender en masse at the Azovstal plant in Mariupol.
Over the past day, 694 militants voluntarily laid down their weapons and surrendered, including 29 wounded.
In total, since May 16, according to the Ministry of Defence, 959 militants have surrendered at Azovstal, including 80 wounded. 51 of them were placed in the Novoazovsk hospital of the Donetsk People’s Republic for further treatment.
The agency also publishes fresh footage of the exit of Ukrainian militants from the territory of the metal plant in Mariupol.
Ukraine commits atrocities against the civilians on a daily basis, and in such quantity that it is almost impossible to keep up with all of them. It feels like the favourite sport of the Ukrainian army is to shoot at the civilian targets – not unlike the thinking of Grand Moff Tarkin when he chose the selection of the target for his shock and awe operation with the Death Star in the Star Wars franchise. One of the latest attacks was against the Russian territory, in Belgorod oblast, where one teenager was killed and 7 other people were wounded after the Ukrainian force shelled a village of no military significance there.
But al that pails in comparison to what Kiev and its USNATO backers are try to pull off – a large scale chemical terrorist act. Yesterday, as the chemical factory “Zarja” (meaning “Dawn”) near town Rubezhnoe (meaning “Frontier”) was liberated from the Ukrainian forces, Russian Electronic Warfare Forces managed to block a remote detonation of a huge number of explosives rigged around various containers and cisterns with acids and other deadly chemicals:
The People’s Militia of the LPR told how the Armed Forces of Ukraine during their retreat mined the territory of the chemical plant for the production of explosives “Zarya” in the city of Rubezhnoye.
“We discovered that the enemy mined the warehouse with 49 tons of TNT and ammonium, which Ukrainian officers, on the instructions of Polish and American instructors, were going to undermine remotely when leaving positions at the plant,” the PM of the Luhansk People’s Republic said in a statement published on the Teleram channel.
As stated by the People’s Militia, the purpose of mining was detonation, and subsequently spraying in the air of 40 thousand tons of ammonia, nitric and sulfuric acids, benzene and other dangerous substances that were on the territory of the plant.
“In advance, in order to ensure the guaranteed explosion of tanks with toxic chemicals, Ukrainian militants carried out lining of railway trains with bags of ammonium and made additional mining of containers with the most dangerous reagents,” the People’s Militia added.
Thus, more than 300 thousand residents of the city could have ended up in the infected zone, and all forms of life would have guaranteed been destroyed in the radius of 20 kilometres from the epicentre of the explosion, they stressed in the People’s Militia. At the moment, the territory of the chemical enterprise is being examined and evidence of the criminal intent is being recorded.
I am continuing to mention the Western thruthspeakers who cannot stand idle in the face of lies pushed by the Western main stream propaganda machine. Earlier I wrote about British, Canadian, German journalists. In this post I present a re-translation from Russian of a fragment of the interview with French Adrien Bocquet. I do not speak French myself, but leave the links to the original interviews for my readers who know that language.
“I take full responsibility for what I say. Being in Ukraine, I witnessed war crimes. All of them were committed by the Ukrainian army. But in France we don’t talk about it!”
— Adrien Bocquet
Here, a demobilized French soldier, the author of the book “Get Up and Go thanks to Science,” went to Ukraine on a humanitarian mission spening three weeks there. Upon his return, he made a difficult decision that could cost him his life or, at least, create a lot of problems: he decided to inform the French public about the crimes he witnessed in Ukraine.
Here are quotes from his interview:
When I returned to France from Ukraine, I was shocked: TV channels invite people as experts who have not been to Ukraine and do not know anything about what is happening there now. However, they dare to talk about these events. There is a gap between what I hear from the TV screen and what I saw with my own eyes.
Azov fighters are everywhere. With neo-Nazi stripes. It shocks me that Europe supplies weapons to neo-Nazis. SS symbols are embroidered everywhere on their uniforms. Not only do they not hide their views. They advertise them. I worked with these people and treated them. They openly say that they are ready to destroy blacks and Jews.
Being there, I couldn’t do anything. Just watch and shoot videos. I have these clips and will use them as evidence of Ukraine’s crimes.
I witnessed how the Ukrainian military shot through the knees of captured Russian soldiers and shot at the head of servicemen with a rank higher than an officer.
I have personally seen American cameramen carrying out fake filming from a scene, staging dramatizations.
All the destroyed civilian buildings presented by Ukraine as bombing of the civilians are nothing but the result of inaccurate shooting of Ukrainians at military facilities.
The UAF hides ammunition in residential buildings at night, without even informing residents. This is called using people as a shield.
Bucha is a dramatization. The bodies of the victims were moved from other places and deliberately placed in such a way as to produce a shocking shooting.
The latest developments remind of the early history of the USA and the first recorded use of the bioweapons to genocide the native population of the America – when the Anglo-Saxon invaders distributed blankets infected with smallpox among the locals. Below is the translation from the summary of the Russian MoD briefing of the 11th of May 2022, republished on Cont:
Briefing of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation on specific experiments of the Pentagon with biological weapons in Ukraine.
1. Counterfeit money spread in the LPR were infected with drug-resistant tuberculosis
Banknotes were distributed among minors in the village of Stepovoye. The organizers of this crime took into account the peculiarities of the behaviour of children who have a habit of “pulling everything into their mouths” and taking food with unwashed hands. According to the conclusion of the Lugansk Republican Sanitary and Epidemiological Station, the bills were infected, most likely, artificially.
2. Details of the Pentagon’s experiments in a mental hospital in the Kharkiv region
The main category of experimental subjects was a group of male patients aged 40-60 years with a high stage of physical exhaustion. In order to conceal their affiliation with the United States, experts conducting biological research arrived through the territories of third countries. Here is a photo of a native of Florida, Linda Oporto, who directly participated in these works.
3. Mariupol under Ukrainian control was used as a regional centre for the collection and certification of the causative agent of cholera.
The selected strains were sent to the Public Health Center in Kiev, which is responsible for the further shipment of the biomaterials to the United States. This activity has been carried out since 2014, which is confirmed by the acts of transmission of strains.

The marches of the “Immortal Regiment” took place all over Europe, but especially vividly in Germany
May 9, 2022, 16:20
Photo & text: Marina Khakimova-Gatzemayer
“I am an American. I go to your Russian rallies.” This unexpected meeting took place in Germany, where the Russian residents of this country held one of the numerous marches of the “Immortal Regiment” around the world. One of the participants of the action, a correspondent of the newspaper VZGLYAD, described her emotional impressions of what was happening.
– Last year there were so few of us at the march of the “Immortal Regiment” in Frankfurt that I had to carry the portrait of my grandfather in one hand and the shaft of our banner in the other. There was no one to take it. And now, look how many of us there are! – my friend Galya tells me, happily looking around at the people gathered at the Frankfurt “Immortal Regiment”. We have become friends with Galya in recent months – at rallies and demonstrations that the Russian-speaking population of Germany holds almost every week.
May 8 in Germany is officially the day of the end of the war. May 9 is a normal working day on which processions are prohibited. So our patriots had to celebrate the Victory over fascism on the eighth. Frankfurt is flooded with sunshine and packed with Ukrainian flags, pro-Ukrainian posters, portraits of Zelensky with the face of a martyr, anti-Russian street installations. We are already used to feeling like outcasts here.
They were preparing for the march for a month, texting, calling up, sharing news: “The government will ban the Immortal Regiment,” “No, it will only ban the Victory Banner,” “Military songs, anthems, marches are prohibited. Will we sing ditties about Hitler?”, “We were allowed only flowers and portraits of veterans, but the shaft on the portrait should not be more than a meter!”, “Maybe we should dress in the colour of the St. George ribbon?”, “In German social networks they write that everyone who comes to the “Immortal Regiment” will be evicted from Germany by force”, “Take your passports with you, everyone who celebrates Victory Day will be checked for German citizenship!”, “Where to buy a Russian banner?”
I wanted to make a simple and poignant commemoration of the 9th of May celebration in these difficult times, when Russia once again is fighting against Nazism – and not just in the Southern Russian lands, currently known as Ukraine (Ukraine is just a battlefield, where, after 8 years of genocide of the Russian population, it was said, “enough is enough”), but also on the wider, so far, diplomatic front against the resurgence of the Nazism in the whole West. When the West is cancelling and banning the commemoration of the Victory Day – both in the birthplace of the 20th century Nazism – Austria, and in the hotbeds of Nazi SS punisher battalions, like Latvia.
“If I had to speak in the Bundestag like the boy Kolya, then I would probably say these words:
– Dear deputies. Today I saw a miracle. And this miracle is called Germany. I walked to you and looked at the beautiful Berlin streets, at the people, at the wonderful architectural monuments, and now I’m standing here and looking at you. And I understand that all this is a miracle. That you were all born and live in Germany. Why do I think so? Because considering what your soldiers did in our occupied territories, the Red Army soldiers had the full moral right to destroy the entire German people. To leave in place of Germany a scorched field, ruins and only textbook paragraphs would remind that there was once such a country. You probably don’t remember all the details of the occupation, but it’s not necessary. I’m just going to remind you of what the Wehrmacht and SS soldiers did to Soviet children.
They were shot. Often in front of parents. Or vice versa, first they shot at mom and dad, and then at the children. Your soldiers raped children. Children were burned alive. They were sent to concentration camps. Where their blood was taken from them to make serum for your soldiers. Children were starved. Children were eaten to death by your sheepdogs. Children were used as targets. Children were brutally tortured just for fun.
Or here are two examples. The Wehrmacht officer was prevented from sleeping by a baby, he took him by the leg and smashed his head against the corner of the stove. Your pilots at the Lychkovo station bombed the train on which we tried to take the children to the rear, and then your aces chased the frightened kids, shooting them in a bare field. Two thousand children were killed.
Just for what you did with children, I repeat, the Red Army could destroy Germany completely with its inhabitants. It had a full moral right. But it didn’t.
Do I regret it? Of course not. I bow to the steely will of my ancestors, who found some incredible strength in themselves so as not to become the same brutes as the soldiers of the Wehrmacht.
On the buckles of German soldiers it was written “God is with us.” But they were a product of hell and brought hell to our land. The soldiers of the Red Army were Komsomol members and Communists, but the Soviet people turned out to be much bigger and more cordial than the inhabitants of enlightened religious Europe. And they did not take revenge. They were able to understand that hell cannot be defeated by hell.
You should not ask us for forgiveness, because you personally are not to blame for anything. You cannot be responsible for your grandfathers and great-grandfathers. But I will be honest – for me the Germans are forever an utterly alien people. It’s not because you’re personally bad. It’s the pain of the children burned by the Wehrmacht that screams in me. And you will have to accept that at least my generation – for whom the memory of the war is in my grandfather’s awards, his scars, his front-line friends – will perceive you this way.
What will happen then, I do not know. Perhaps mankurts will come after us who will forget everything. And we have done a lot for this, we have foiled a lot ourselves, but I hope that all is not lost for Russia yet.
Of course we need to cooperate. Russians and Germans. We need to solve problems together. Fight ISIS and build gas pipelines. But you will have to accept one fact: WE WILL NEVER REPENT for our Great War. And even more so for the Victory. And even more so in front of you. Anyway, I repeat, my generation. Because back then we saved not only ourselves. We saved you from yourself. And I don’t even know what’s more important.”
In these hard times we get to know who the real journalists are – those who take the risk and go to the site of a conflict to see what is happening with their own eyes, to talk to the locals, to document the events. Nowadays, they are working against the other side – the court “journalists” who simply parrot whatever memo is sent to them from Kiev or Washington.
The independent Journalists, in addition to risking their lives while reporting from a hotspot, also face the smearing campaign in their home countries, where the MSM does everything it can to preserve the Party narrative and cannot allow any trickle of truth to seep through. But as the Russian saying goes, everything that is hidden eventually becomes uncovered.
Today I learned of two more: German Alina Lipp and Turkish historian Mehmet Perinçek.
I couldn’t find Alina Lipp’s TY channel, only a few reposts and some smearing videos trying to discredit her.
I did find an interview with her in English:
And I also located this short video on Rubmle, in which she is visiting the Mariupol harbour. In the beginning she mentiones that there are other international journalists with her – from Holland, Greece, Serbia, France… So it does look like the truth is being reported from there. The other question is whether somebody is listening…
I first hear of Alina in a re-translation article on Tsargrad:
A journalist from Germany, Alina Lipp, showed who the residents of Mariupol really blame for their troubles.
A journalist from Germany, Alina Lipp, talked to a local resident in Mariupol and found out his opinion about what is happening in the Donbass.
She asked a local resident how he feels about the fact that, according to German media reports, Russia is responsible for the devastation in eastern Ukraine: “I read the German news, and they say that Russia destroyed everything in Mariupol… and at killed everyone.”
The man did not hesitate to express himself:
Tell these Germans of yours to go f**k themselves..! Russia feeds us!
Alina Lipp was born in a suburb of Hamburg, she has a Russian father and a German mother. Last year she came to Donetsk for the first time and saw that the reality is very different from what German propaganda publications write. The journalist decided to stay and started posting her reports on social networks. Alina plans to continue to stay in the DPR and tell the truth about what is happening in the Donbass.
Likewise, as I do not know Turkish, I first learned of Mehmet Perinçek from a Russian publication, which I am translating to English below:
— I can say with confidence: if Russia had not launched a special operation in Ukraine, there would have been a more serious armed conflict, there would have been many times more destruction and casualties among the civilian population of Ukrainian cities.
— Kiev wanted to use these areas as a springboard against Russia. In this case, not only Ukrainian, but also many Russian cities located near the border with Ukraine would suffer. They would have turned into ruins.
— I visited Mariupol, Berdyansk, Donetsk and Melitopol. Local residents tell terrible things about the actions of neo-Nazis, about the “Azovites” who used them as a human shield. Neo-Nazis bombed the homes of civilians to blame the Russians, to blame the Russian army for the murder of children. Many say that the strikes on Mariupol were carried out even before Russian soldiers entered the city.
— Today, life in Mariupol is gradually recovering. Children and the elderly have the opportunity to walk quietly through the streets of the city. The most important thing that I was able to understand is that almost all residents of Donbass do not want to link their future with Kiev, while the Western media writes the opposite.
— This is reminiscent of the events in Iran and Iraq. In the end, the talk about some kind of weapons of mass destruction in these countries turned out to be nothing more than a fabrication. Today, almost the same thing is happening in Ukraine. In Zaporozhye, we visited a local nuclear power plant. If what the Western media say – that there is powerful radiation there – were true, then we would have died long ago. The station was operating normally. The Russian forces did not even change the local leadership of the facility.
It’s been a while since I posted the last update on the American bioweapons labs in Ukraine. This post is a collection of several articles on the topic. Some articles are reopsts and some are translations. The topic of the American biolabs has been sidelined by the liberation of Mariupol, and the Kiev regime’s false flag in Bucha – the latter seems to have specifically coincided with the increasing media attention tot he biolabs so as to draw attention from that topic.
As a reminder and food for thought: this is the distribution of the haplogroups in Europe. The R1A and R1B are so close genetically, that a bioweapon developed against the Slavic population would wipe out the rest of the Western Europe as well…
The documents received by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation confirm the connection of the UNTC with the US military department through the main contractor of the Pentagon – the company “Black & Veatch”
I have previously mentioned such independent Western journalists on-the-ground in Eastern Ukraine/DPR/LNR as Graham Phillips and Patrick Lancaster. I have newly become aware of one more such hands-on reporter there – Eva K. Barlett.
Spanish news outlet Rebelión has a lot on Ukraine with one article standing out: Ucrania, fábrica de fake news – an important read for the Spanish-language world on the background of the conflict, which MSM are mute about.
