Russian Fleets in America in 1863 – a condensed lecture by Webster Tarpley from 2013

What does it take to create a war?

– Forget history. Re-write history. Divide people. Pit them against each other. Conquer. Make war. Cash in the profit for the military-industrial complex.

How to undo that and stop a war?

– Learn the real history.

This is what has been done to Ukraine and Russia on a short-term time scale. But did you know that the same was done to the people of the USA vs. Russia?

Presenting a condensed and informative video of Webster Tarpley’s lecture, edited by Putinger’s Cat.

As the complimentary reading to this lecture, the book “The U.S.-Russian Entente That Saved The Union” by Konstantin George, first published in July of 1978 in The Campaigner magazine.


This is a condensed version of the lecture given by American historian Webster Tarpley in Washington, DC, in 2013, on the 150th anniversary of the arrival of Russian navy squadrons to New York City and San Francisco to assist the Union against the Confederacy in the fall of 1863.

Webster Tarpley discusses the contribution of Russian Tsar Alexander II to a northern victory in the US Civil War. Sadly, this great chapter of Russian-American relationship has been nearly forgotten in the US, even though it played a very important role in the very existence of the United States of America as we know it.

The entire talk is about an hour and a half long. It contains a lot more information about the Russian-American relationship than was cut to put this video together. It is filmed as a single-camera shot, so it won’t have any graphics in it, but it is well-worth the time!

It is available for viewing on C-SPAN as well as on YouTube:

I highly recommend watching (or listening to) this entire very informative lecture!

Heroines of Russia. Putin visited the Higher Military Aviation School.

The day before the 8th of March – the International Women’s Day – President of the Russian Fe deration, Vladimir Putin and the Defence Minister of Russia Sergei Shoigu visited the Krasnodar Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots named after Hero of the Soviet Union A. K. Serov. below is a translation of an article from “Argumenty i Fakty”, telling about the visit. More photographs are available at the end of the original article in Russian.


Heroines of Russia. Putin revealed unknown details about himself to military women

Russian President Vladimir Putin is photographed with graduates of the Krasnodar Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots named after Hero of the Soviet Union A. K. Serov. On the right in the center is Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu

The strategic bomber that President Vladimir Putin flew in, has not yet been put into operation, he personally made a “barrel” on the Su-27, he has been hardening since childhood, and respects women’s work on an equal basis with men’s. The head of state told about this in a frank conversation with graduates of the Krasnodar Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots on the eve of March 8. And in the end, he wished the female participants of the SMO to return home as soon as possible.

During the conversation with the military pilots, the head of state noted that in any profession women show a responsible attitude to work, carefully work out all the little details, therefore they achieve good results. He called the School a “heroic educational institution”, whose graduates performed many feats during the Great Patriotic War, were prototypes of books, films and opera. And he expressed confidence that the graduates will continue these traditions.

“There are certainly elements of the romance of the sky, but it requires good professional training and a serious attitude to the work at hand. You need to know the technique, be able to control it. Today, our women and young lasses are serving in the zone of a special military operation, and that in different fields, and everywhere they serve the Motherland with dignity,” Putin assured.

Germany Is Chasing the Cat Back Into the Bag

In this follow-up article to German Cat Is Out of the Bag – representatives of the Bundeswehr discussed the strikes on the Crimean Bridge we are taking a look at how the Germany handles the embarrassment. The article was first published as a post on our “Beorn And The Shieldmaiden” Telegram channel. Please subscribe!


With the much-discussed conversation of the Bundeswehr officials, (https://t.me/BeornAndTheShieldmaiden/2956) the Germans tried yesterday to chase the cat back into the bag, in much the same way and with as much success as when they pushed the gas back into the US-blown Nord Streams.

Maria Zaharova commented it thus on her Telegram channel:

Bild: “The Bundeswehr insisted on blocking accounts on the social network X, which distributed the recording of a conversation between the German military, who discussed the Taurus missile strike on the Crimean Bridge.”

It’s called “covering your tracks.” Will everything follow the same scenario as the German “investigation” of the terrorist attacks on the Nord Streams?

German citizens must learn from Scholtz about the rights of foreigners in Russia, Belarus, China, but not about their own German rights.

♦️♦️♦️

However, the only thing that blocking of X-accounts and the subsequent publication in the “Bild” can achieve, is the Streisand effectan unintended consequence of attempts to hide, remove, or censor information, where the effort instead backfires by increasing public awareness of the information.

RIA Novosti writes, that the conversation in which representatives of the Bundeswehr discussed the strikes on the Crimean Bridge, took place on February 19th 2024.

The topic was discussed by the head of the operations and exercises department of the Air Force Command Graefe, Air Force Inspector Gerhartz and employees of the air operations center Fenske and Frostedte.

At the same time, one of the officers mentioned a planned trip to Ukraine on February 21st to coordinate strikes on Russian targets. 

Russia’s MFA Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova notes on the Telegram channel of the ministry:

I’m interested in Annalena Baerbock’s perspective on this matter. This presents a prime opportunity for German media to demonstrate its independence by asking probing questions and for Russian media to seek the opinion of the German Embassy in Moscow.

Margarita Simonyan, Editor-in-Chief of RT (https://t.me/rtnews):

Our people in uniform shared some intriguing information with me on the day when Scholz said that NATO was not and would never be involved in the Ukrainian conflict.

The information and videos are so riveting that I immediately wanted to share them with our audiences to bring them joy.
In that captivating footage, high-ranking German officers discussed the bombing (would you believe it) of the Crimean Bridge and methods to execute it discreetly so that Scholz could keep up to his talk of non-involvement.

The Bundeswehr officers have also spilled the beans about the Americans and the Brits who, they said, had been directly involved in the conflict for a long time.

In short, it’s 40 minutes of pure delight. In this connection, I have an official journalistic inquiry for the German Ambassador, the German Foreign Minister and Chancellor Scholz personally:

What does this mean, gentlemen? Should Russia jog Germany’s memory about what happened last time when Germany blew up Russian bridges?

As your media usually say, we expect an answer today.

Because nobody knows what may happen tomorrow.


Following is our English translation of Margarita Simonyan’s publication of the…

Transcript of a conversation between high-ranking Bundeswehr officers dated 02/19/2024

On February 19th 2024, the following conversation took place between the Head of the Operations and Exercises Department of the Bundeswehr Air Force Command Graefe, the Bundeswehr BBC Inspector Gerhartz and the employees of the Bundeswehr Space Command Air Operations Center Fenske and Frostedte.

Gerhartz: Hello everyone! Graefe, are you in Singapore now?

Graefe: Yes.

Gerhartz: Okay. We need to verify the information. As you have already heard, Defence Minister Pistorius intends to carefully consider the issue of supplying Taurus missiles to Ukraine. We have a meeting planned with him. Everything needs to be discussed so that we can start working on this issue. So far I do not see that the start date of these deliveries has been indicated. It was not like the Chancellor told him: “I want to get information now, and tomorrow morning we will make a decision.” I haven’t heard anything like this. On the contrary, Pistorius evaluates this entire ongoing discussion. Nobody knows why the Federal Chancellor is blocking these supplies. Of course, the most incredible rumours appear. Let me give you an example: Yesterday, a journalist who is very close to the Chancellor called me. She heard somewhere in Munich that the Taurus missiles would not work. I asked who told her this. She replied that someone in military uniform told her this. Of course, this is a low-level source of information, but the journalist latched onto these words and wants to make a big deal out of it with the headline: “Now we know the reason why the Chancellor refuses to send Taurus missiles – they won’t work.” This is all stupidity. Such topics are available only to a limited circle of people. However, we see what kind of nonsense is spreading in the meantime, they are talking complete nonsense. I want to coordinate this issue with you so that we do not move in the wrong direction.
First of all, I now have questions for Frostedte and Fenske:
Has anyone talked to you about this topic? Did Freuding contact you?

Frostedte: No. I only communicated with Graefe.

Fenske: The same thing, I only communicated with Graefe.

Gerhartz: Perhaps he will contact you again. I will probably have to participate in hearings in the Budget Commission, because problems have arisen related to rising prices for the conversion of infrastructure for the F-35 in Büchel. I have already conveyed my recommendations through Frank so that we have slides to visualise the material. We showed him a test presentation where Taurus missiles were installed on a Tornado carrier or on another carrier required by the assignment. However, I have a hard time imagining this. It is necessary to remember that this is a half-hour meeting, so you should not prepare a presentation of 30 slides. There should be a short report. It is necessary to show what a rocket can do, how it can be used. It is necessary to take into account, if we make a political decision to transfer missiles as aid to Ukraine, what consequences this may lead to. I will be grateful to you if you tell me not only what problems we have, but how we can solve them. For example, if we talk about delivery methods… I know how the British do it. They always transport them in Ridgback armoured vehicles. They have several people on site. The French don’t do that. They supply Q7 with Scalp missiles to Ukraine. Storm Shadow and Scalp have similar technical specifications for their installation. How will we solve this problem? Will we be transferring to them the MBDA missiles with Ridgback? Will one of our people be assigned to MBDA? Graefe, report to us what our position is on this issue. Misters Fenske and Frostedte, please report how you see the situation.

Sweden has voluntarily submitted to the United States. By Jan Guillou

Sweden has voluntarily submitted to the United States

By Jan Guillou, 25.02.2024

A defence agreement between Sweden and the United States establishes American sovereignty.

It looks like Sweden has been at war with the United States and lost. At least when you read the latest defence agreement between our government and the United States. The American sovereignty in Sweden is introduced there.


Swedish Secretary of Defence Pål Jonson and U.S. Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin

Of course, this is not the image conveyed by the media. From the Report’s coverage, I only remember pictures of the happy little Swedish defence minister and the giant American defence minister as they sign the secret agreement, as if it were just another routine agreement. It’s not. It is unique in our history and incomprehensibly far-reaching. It is about total submission.

Right from the beginning of the agreement, the United States was to be granted ”unhindered access to and use of agreed facilities and areas”.

Well. And what are these agreed facilities and areas? They are listed on Page 37. These are all of Sweden’s air fleets and all major army bases, including 17 listed. Thus, in practice, it is the entire defence of Sweden that the United States should receive ”unhindered”, that is, unlimited power over.

In addition, at unspecified defence facilities, certain areas will be cordoned off to which ”only U.S. forces shall have access and use” and where U.S. jurisdiction shall apply. But that’s not all. ”Upon request,” the United States shall access and use private land and assets, including roads, ports, and airports.

The United States also gets the right to freely build up ”areas and facilities” for storing weapons and defence equipment. There are no exceptions to the type of weapon, not even nuclear weapons (Article 14). The parties “may consult on the above to the extent necessary”.

10 Years Since the 2014 Unconstitutional Coup d’Etat in Ukraine

Ten years is both a moment in history and a lifetime. We remember what happened in Kiev ten years ago, even though the West and the Nazi regime there desperately try to forget, erase and rewrite this history. On our Telegram channel “Beorn And The Shieldmaiden” we marked the 10th anniversary of the violent, USA-sponsored coup d’etat in Ukraine. We invite everyone to subscribe to our Telegram channel for the daily revival of history.


2013-14 Euromaidan timeline and facts from the Russian MFA

Today marks 10 years since the events of the so-called Euromaidan that led to the unconstitutional coup d’etat in Ukraine.

Since 2014, under the supervision and with the direct guidance by the advisors from NATO & Western powers, Ukraine was transformed into an anti-Russian country at an accelerating pace.

The de-Russification and Ukrainization of the nations’ cultural code was forced upon living in Ukraine, they were brainwashed, in effect re-educated in the spirit of hatred and hostility towards Russia and Russians, the memory of the common past awas all but erased, replaced by neo-Nazi sentiments.

Even the relatively recent 2014 events have been rewritten and retold by those in power in Kiev and their puppet masters in the West, facts were tossed away, truth twisted or omitted, the entire sequence of events turned upside down.

A historical flashback from the blog owner

On this date, exactly 10 years ago a cross-country 30km skiing event for women took place during the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

At first, the day started like any other day during the Winter Olympics season. Yours truly is not particularly interested in wintersports, but, being in Norway, it is next to impossible to avoid that.

And so, as on the previous days, my colleagues commandeered one of the big screens in the office, so that a direct TV sending could be seen and heard on it – instead of the boring production statistics and monitoring data normally conveyed there.

I half-heartedly listened to the sports commentator’s exuberant appraisal of each of the participant’s prowess and their progress along the track, while busing myself with the actual work that had to be done that day.

Until one particular phrase caught my attention. It was along these lines:

«…and look at her go, while her country is in flames and on the brink of destruction…»

NATO’s terrorist attack on Russia’s Belgorod. President of Czechia Petr Pavel murders 4-month-old baby Valentina

On the 15th of February 2024, NATO, through their Ukrainian proxies, conducted a terrorist attack on the city of Belgorod. We have covered the attack on our Telegram channel “Beorn And The Shieldmaiden”, but the memory of it shall also be preserved on the pages of this blog.

If someone thinks that the title of this article is over the top or is not factual, I would beg to differ! The terrorist attack was carried out by an MLRS complex, delivered by Czechia, in full knowledge that the Ukro-nazis will be using them to fire at civilian targets, just like they’ve been doing for a decade. During that decade, NATO was pumping Ukraine with weapons and hatred, while the OCSE was providing targeting coordinates within Donetsk city.

And now the Czech president – through hired killers – murdered the 4-month-old baby girl in the Russian city of Belgorod.


This caricature from 2014 illustrates the naivety Russians had towards the role of the EU, but not the US. The USA says: “I just acquired an awful bitch almost for free”, and the EU responds: “Just don’t forget to give it the vaccines against the Brown Plague and rabis.” But in fact, both the USA and the EU, needed a rabid, Brown Plague-contaminated biting bitch to sick onto Russia!


Ukro-Nazis strike again at Belgorod

At approximately 12:30, 14 missiles of the Czechoslovak-made, Ukrainian-operated MLRS rocket complex RM-70 Vampire (NATO designation – M1972) were shot down over Belgorod, yet some managed to come through.

Seven citizens, including a 4-month-old baby girl Valentina, were killed as a result of the Ukro-Nazi rocket attack at Belgorod, where a shopping center and the territory of school #42 were hit. 18 people, including 5 children, are wounded. Seven private houses were damaged and five apartment blocks lost windows.

Maria Zaharova writes:

Yet another act of terrorism by the Kiev regime, which resulted in the death of civilians in Belgorod, including one child, as well as many injured, will be submitted by Russia to relevant international organisations, including the UN Security Council.


The Nazi Terror Must Be Stopped!!!

Today’s terrorist attack on Belgorod by the NATO-puppeteered rogue state of Ukraine is one of the latest acts of terrorism – the first shot, though, was fired 10 years ago:

“Gauleiter” for Ukraine. The West revived the practise of the Nazis under Hitler

On the 12th of February 2024 “Argumenty i Facty” published an article, drawing the reader’s attention to the clear parallel between the Nazi position of the Gauleiter in the Reichskommissariat Ukraine and the proposed “special representative”.

A few days later, on the 15th of February, KM.RU in an article titled simply “Ukraine: The Return of the Gauleiter”, further revealed who may become the candidate for this noose-promising title:

Stoltenberg in Kiev


The whole performance is reminiscent of the fascist practice of Gauleiters in Ukraine. This is not surprising. According to the forecasts of many historians, Europe was doomed to return to its terrible historical past.

The other day, the director of the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), Sergei Naryshkin, said that the West wants to appoint a “viceroy” in Ukraine “in order to strengthen the mechanism of external control of the territory controlled by the Kiev regime.”

According to the SVR, it is planned to appoint Jens Stoltenberg – who currently holds the position of NATO Secretary General – to the post of special envoy for Ukraine. His mandate expires on the 1st of October 2024. “It is assumed that he will have constant access to President Vladimir Zelensky and know about all his plans,” Naryshkin explained. The tasks of the special envoy will include blocking decisions of the Ukrainian leadership that are not coordinated with the United States and Great Britain. Instead, Stoltenberg will propose the “right” steps, from the point of view of the Anglo-Saxons.


And now, the the article from “Argumenty i Facty”:


The “Viceroy” will be coming. The West revived in Ukraine the idea of Nazis under Hitler

Reichskommissar Ukraine, Erich Koch (right) and Reich Minister for the Occupied Eastern Territories, Alfred Rosenberg (center) surveying Kiev Lavra.

The West’s intention to appoint its collective special representative in Ukraine is “an attempt to strengthen the enslavement of the people close to Russia,” said Sergei Naryshkin, head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) on February 12. “Such practices were introduced by the leader of the German Nazis, Adolf Hitler, and all his ‘viceroys’ the Candidate of Historical Sciences, Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Ivannikov told aif.ru. Ukrainians are capable of kicking this “special representative” out of the country along with President Vladimir Zelensky, the expert believes.

The West intends to appoint its “special representative” in Ukraine, who should oversee the Kiev regime. According to Naryshkin, when discussing this forgotten idea, “such conditions were factored in, as an increasingly difficult situation at the front, difficulties with mobilization and hitches in obtaining Western military assistance, when many Ukrainians began to realize the inevitability of Moscow achieving the goals of a special military operation.”

“This yet another crude attempt by the West to strengthen the enslavement of the Ukrainian people, who are close to us, cannot but cause concern. At the same time, there is a high probability that the implementation of the idea with the appointment of a “viceroy” in Ukraine will not lead to the results desired by the United States and Great Britain,” the head of the SVR believes.

The Historic Interview of President Putin by Tucker Carlson, with History at the Forefront

The interview with Vladimir Putin by Tucker Carlson on the 9th of February 2024 has made headlines, and been discussed in and out on all platforms.

We covered it extensively on our Telegram channel “Beorn And The Shieldmaiden”, and we would like to take the opportunity to invite everyone to subscribe to it for daily updates.

The complete interview can be watched in English on the site of Tucker Carlson and on the site of The Kremlin.

One aspect of the interview rightfully caught the attention of the Western audience – the 25 minute quick summary of the history of Russia, including the lands currently carrying the name of “Ukraine”.

What was conveyed by the President is nothing new, at least for the Russians and those who went to school in the USSR – it is part of the standard curriculum of history in the elementary school.

Oliver Stone’s Documentaries on Ukraine and the Interview with President Putin

While the interview of Vladimir Putin by Tucker Carlson – see a series of posts about it on our “Beorn And The Shieldmaiden” Telegram channel – is now firmly in the focus, it is high time to remember a series of interviews and programs by Oliver Stone, which got censored away by YouTube, but are still available on other, free platforms, like Rumble.

17 Years Since the Munich Speech by President Putin. The message that the West didn’t want to hear.

On the 10th of February 2007, President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin of the Russian Federation delivered his famous Munich speech.

During the Cold War, the heads of the defence ministries of the NATO powers gathered in Munich. From 1993 onwards, the event became less militarised and began to invite not only NATO members, but also anyone deemed worthy of attention.

Vladimir Putin’s speech was devoted to the expansion of NATO, the problem in the field of disarmament, the unipolarity of modern world politics, the degradation of the OSCE institution, the vision of Russia’s place and role in the modern world, taking into account current realities and threats. In Western political circles, this has sparked controversy over the resumption of the Cold War.

The speech can be summarised as follows:

The Cold War left us with ideological stereotypes and other patterns of block thinking. The unipolar world is disastrous for everyone, including the sovereign, because it destroys it from the inside. And it has nothing to do with democracy. Russia is constantly being taught democracy by those who do not want to learn it themselves. Unilateral illegitimate actions have not solved a single problem — there are no fewer wars, even more people are dying in conflicts. The United States imposes its system of law on others, both economically and politically. Well, who would like that?

We need a new security architecture that takes into account the interests of all. The Soviet regime transformed peacefully, so why is it necessary to bomb now at every opportunity? Only the UN can use force, it is not necessary to replace it with NATO or the European Union. Why are they deploying missile defense in Europe? NATO expansion has nothing to do with security. Who is the target of this expansion? What happened to the assurances made after the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact?

Among other things, thanks to the choice of the people of Russia, the Berlin Wall fell, and now new walls are being imposed on us. The OSCE was created to ensure the security of all, but in fact it has turned into a vulgar tool to ensure the interests of a group of countries. We would like to have responsible partners in order to build a world, in which security and prosperity would be not for a select few, but for all.

Alternatively, the speech can be listened to with English subtitles:

The 27th of January – Lifting of Leningrad Blockade and the Liberation of Auschwitz by the Soviet troops

A year apart, two dates that must be remembered by the humanity happed on the 27th of January

On our “Beorn and The Shieldmaiden” Telegram channel, we commemorate both events with a series of thematic posts – Lifting of the Blockade of Leningrad and Liberation of Auschwitz

80 years ago, on the 27th of January 1944, the Blockade of Leningrad that lasted 872 days and cost 1,093,842 lives was finally lifted. The Blockade is recognised as an act of genocide against the Russian people.

79 years ago, on the 27th of January 1945, 25,000 Soviet soldiers and officers opened the gates of Auschwitz, saving the remaining survivors of the Nazi death machine.

To the Warrior-Liberator – Glory!

Brutality of the Polish landowners as the driving force for the Pereyaslav Rada in 1654

The article you are about to read continues the topic of the Pereyaslav Rada from yesterday’s article Pereyaslav Rada of 1654 – the story of Zaporozhie Cossacks joining Rus, which looked more at the events surrounding the Pereyaslav Rada, which the present article explores more of the preceding decades and reasons while Malorossia wanted to escape the Polish yoke. The introductory note about the term “Ukraine” apply equally to today’s article. A highly-recommended documentary, Project ‘Ukraine’, has a mention of these events as well.


“We wish for the ruler”. The Pereyaslav Rada united two parts of the Russian people

“Argumenty i Fakty”, 18.01.2024

Alexey Kishchenko, “Bogdan Hmelnitsky. The Ascension of Malorossia”, 1880 / Commons.wikimedia.org

It is generally believed that the Pereyaslav Rada marked the reunification of Ukraine with Russia. However, a structure called “Ukraine” did not exist at that time.

370 years ago, on the 18th of January 1654, cries were heard in the city of Pereyaslavl-Russkij (Pereyaslavl-Russian): “We are wishing to be under the Tzar of the East, the Orthodox one! Oh, God! Approve it! Oh, God! Strengthen it! May we all be one forever!”

This is how the people who gathered at the Pereyaslav Rada reacted to the letter of Tsar Alexei Mihailovich, which confirmed that the Russian sovereign “ordered them to take them under his high hand.”

Pereyaslav Rada of 1654 – the story of Zaporozhie Cossacks joining Rus

The article below was first published on Dzen on the 18th of January 2021, but it seems to be from 2020. It covers the historical background for Pereyaslav Rada (Accord), the result of which was the so-called unification of Ukraine and Russia”. It this regard, it is worth noting that “Ukraine” was not established as a geopolitical term at that time. One rather spoke of the Zaporozhie Getmanate (or of “Gulyaj-Pole” – “Free-for-all field” in the sense of the lawlessness on those territories). Before 1800-s, “Ukraine” featured in its dictionary form of “borderland”. The term “Ukraine” first became descriptive of a geographic location in the political sense in the first half of the 1800-s. And it was only after the October revolution of 1917 that “Ukraine” acquired the true meaning of geopolitical entity.

As an aside, I am puzzled by some in the Communist circles who distance themselves from the factually correct statement that “Ukraine was created by Lenin (as a geopolitical entity)”. In doing so, not only do they do a disservice to Lenin’s legacy, but also play into the hands of the Ukrainian nationalists. There is nothing wrong with Lenin creating Ukraine in the sensibilities of that difficult time. The similar sensibilities governed the establishment of the Far-Eastern Republic on the shores of the Pacific, and the creation of then tiny Belorussian Republic. What Lenin did made sense in that historical context, short-term. But he could not foresee and cannot be held responsible for how the decision played out long-term. That was something for the future generations to solve. And that future is happening now.

For more details, see the earlier article How Malorossia Was Turned into the Patch-quilt of Discord that is “Ukraine”.

Ukraina – thus were called the South-Western Russian lands of Rzeczpospolita. This name was never official, it was used only in private conversations and became common in folk poetry. It is difficult to define the boundaries of the lands, known as “ukrainnyi”, more so that this name was not permanent and at different times covered varying stretches of land…

With this in mind, let us continue to the article at hand…


Pereyaslav Rada: How Ukrainians were seeking to come under the wing of the Russian Tzar, while in Moscow they’ve been thinking for the longest time

January 18, 2021

Pereyaslav Rada, 1654

The beginning of January 2020 was marked in Ukraine by regular “Bandera” marches of nationalists, which caused a timid protest from the ambassadors of Israel and Poland. Meanwhile, in addition to the birthday of one of the leaders of the Ukrainian nationalists, another historical date falls on January, which is carefully hushed up and ignored by the current authorities of Ukraine. Meanwhile, no matter how hard Zelensky and Co. tried to sweep the inconvenient facts under the rag, it was that date that determined the choice of the Malorossian (Rus Minor, Ukrainian) people for several centuries to come.

Gonzalo Lira Has Been Murdered by the Ukro-NAZI GESTAPO – the SBU

“Only the guilty fear judgement,” Gonzo had written in his Twitter bio. “Only liars need stifle the truth.”

On the 13th of January 2024, the American-Chilean citizen and blogger/journalist Gonzalo Lira was murdered in jail by the Ukro-NAZI GESTAPO equivalent – the SBU – for the crime of speaking critically of the Zelensky/Biden regime.

Gonzalo Lira used to start his broadcasts on YouTube in 2022 with the call of “Where is Tiffany Dover?”, referring to the nurse who became ill on-camera during a PR stunt that was supposed to show the safety of the experimental COVID-19 vaccine, and subsequently “disappeared” from all the records. Having become stranded in Ukraine in 2022, Lira was rightly fearful of becoming equally “disappeared”.

On the 20th of April 2022 – almost 2 years ago – he, indeed got apprehended by the SBU, and the call of “Where is Gonzalo Lira?” went up, including on this blog in the article Gonzalo Lira may have been murdered by the Ukro-Nazis in Harkov. Where Is Gonzalo Lira? — UPDATE: appears alive after an SBU detention.

Back then he got released, and behaving somewhat uncharacteristically, continued with his broadcasts, raising concerns that he may have been compromised by the SBU. If he really was or if he throught he could out-fox the SBU… that we will never know, for the present answer to the call-out of “Where is Gonzalo Lira?” is, sadly, the silence of death.

While Gonzalo Lira’s YouTube channel still exists, most of the videos there disappeared from public access after his arrest in 2022. Some may still be accessed if the direct link is known, like the Victoria Nuland stream, embedded below.

At the moment of his arrest in 2022 I took a snapshot of his YouTube videos, and have now uploaded all the 11GB of them to a file sharing service for the sake of record keeping.
