Another Western Truthspeaker – French Adrien Bocquet in a video interview

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, Cancadian, 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.

“J’ai vu des crimes abominables commis par Azov.” De retour d’Ukraine, Adrien Bocquet raconte

Adrien Bocquet, ancien fusilier de l’armée française, témoigne après 3 semaines passées en Ukraine

Bercoff dans tous ses états

The Russian translation appeared on Cont on the 11th of May 2022.


“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.

UPDATE: RT on Rubmle had a news feature on this retired French marine’s revelations:

UPDATE 2: What do you know, the French are starting to see even more truth. This was publish3ed on SputnikNews (censored in the west to publishing truthful accounts):

French Newspaper Verifies Video of Ukrainians Torturing Russian POWs, Pinpoints Responsible Unit

The first videos of Ukrainian soldiers humiliating and torturing captured Russian servicemen emerged as early as March. Despite Kiev vowing to investigate the cases, which violate the Geneva Convention, there has been no information of the probes.

French newspaper Le Monde has verified the authenticity of footage that emerged late in March showing several Ukrainian soldiers shooting three captured, unarmed and tied-up Russian captives.

In the video, Ukrainian soldiers shot the Russians in the legs and left them to bleed without offering medical assistance.

Le Monde conducted a thorough investigation into the video, going on to confirm that the Ukrainian soldiers had violated international law. Under the Geneva Convention, uniformed enemy combatants are to be considered POWs upon capture or surrender and are to be treated humanely, including supplying medical care.

In its probe, the Paris-based newspaper determined that the video was shot between 20 and 27 March in the Ukrainian village of Malaya Rogan. Investigators judged the location due to the weather and shape of the horizon. The newspaper also alleged that the three captured Russians were artillery soldiers, and that their torture was “revenge” for the purported shelling of Kharkov. Russian Defence Ministry repeatedly stressed that its forces only target military objectives in Ukraine.

The newspaper also found evidence that the Slobozhanshchyna voluntary battalion of the Ukrainian Armed Forces was in Malaya Rogan at the time. The outlet found footage of the battalion leader Andri Ianholenko dragging the three Russian soldiers not far from the shooting location.

The newspaper stressed that it found no way to confirm the exact identity of the perpetrators, or if they belonged to the Slobozhanshchyna battalion. It was, however, confident that the battalion’s fighters and leader were at the location where the video was shot on the same day and roughly at the same time.

  1. Stanislav: Thank you for this and many other reports you’ve published/translated here. That French medical volunteer’s revelations are truly remarkable and quite courageous.

    Have you yet become acquainted with Sonja van den Ende’s work in the Donbas? She’s a Dutch journalist who’s issued several reports and recently attended the Arria-format UNSC meeting on Ukraine’s war crimes.

    Though a second-hand acccount, here’s Sputnik’s coverage of her comments on that event:

    “Journo: Is It Coincidence That Some CIA Torture Techniques are so Popular With Ukrainian Neo-Nazis?”

    https://sputniknews.com/20220511/journo-is-it-coincidence-that-some-cia-torture-techniques-are-so-popular-with-ukrainian-neo-nazis-1095441987.html

    There are several more articles form her and others, including Donbas volunteers, that I could post here, if you’d like.

    [Disclosure: I am a US citizen who fully supports Russia’s Special Military Operation in Ukraine and despises the Ukraine’s Neo-Nazis.]

  2. Thank you! No, I did not know of Sonja’s reporting. Please do post other references to the volunteers and independent journalists – the more angles on the truth we have, the better.
    I can later make a new cumulative post with mentions of them. And SputnikNews articles need reposting as they are blocked in the EU (don’t know if the block extends to the US).
    Incidentally, I updated the current post with finds by Le Monde, which were summarised in English by SputnikNews.
    PS: I published earlier a translation of a documentary about the “Library” of which Sonja talks in her reportage: https://stanislavs.org/zelenskys-bloody-library-ntv-documentary-03-04-2022-english-subtitles/

  3. Hello, Stanislaus: Sorry for the delay — I had to backtrack a bit to locate some of the sources for my saved files.

    If you yourself are unable to access Sputnik, I can always send the full text. Though in the US, I have no problems

    lately accessing RT, Sputnik, etc., though some others have, suggesting perhaps individual ISPs may be blocking.

    But here is the (almost) complete list, with a new article from Russell Bentley just today:

  5. Thank you!
    To watch SputnikNews and RT from the EU I need to use VPN. I sound the exit point in Singapore to work well for both.
