I’ve spent the most part of the day going through the materials around Bucha stage set. Unlike the different countries’ leaders, like Macron, I cannot go off the handle and assign blame without looking at the evidence.
Before I continue, let us see at the timeline:
- Before 30th of March – all civilians are perfectly fine in Bucha, humanitarian aid is provided to the people
- 30th of March – Russian troops leave Bucha
- 31st of March – the mayor of Bucha happily and smiling tells the world that the Russian forces have left – no mention of the atrocities, though
- 1st of April – Ukrainian army shells Bucha
- 2nd of April – Ukrainian army + Azov neo-Nazi battalion enter Bucha and conduct “search for traitors”
- 3rd of April – First staged mentions of the dead bodies appear
After the Maripol maternity ward set-up by Azov, this is a new provocation on the Ukrainian fake list.
UPDATE 05.04.2022: The West, in their desperate attempt to save the narrative of the botched timeline in their false flag, release tonight images of what they claim are bodies seen in the satellite images of Bucha, dating to the 19th of March. In other words, the Empire of Lies wants us to believe that the freshly-looking bodies with fresh red blood on the recent footage had been lying around to 2 weeks! Never mind that if the “Russians did it”, they woul dnot have left the bodies lying about in the middle of the road so that the traffic had to zig-zag through them. Oh, and the smell in Bucha would have been terrible, even after 3 days with 80 dead bodies lying about. After 16 days, the mayor of Bucha would not have been reporting smilingly on the camera that the Russian troops withdrew, but would have been retching from the stench, in the bodies were really there, and were not brought in by the ukro-Nazis post-factum. So, in effect, this new “stroke” with the satellite images only puts another nail in the coffin of the Western-Ukro-Nazi narrative.
Gonzalo Lira in his Bucha: More Lies analysis points quite a few red flags with the videos, presented to the West. Among them are the expensive camera gear and post-production, bodies lying unnaturally in the streets for the best cinematic effect, clean clothes with no damage, no faces visible in the footage, etc.
UPDATE 05.04.2022: Gonzalo Lira had to remove his video above to avoid being deplatformed by YouTube for the descenting view. His explanation is in this stream.
In his Telegram channel he writes:
Look at this other video of the “Bucha massacre”:
It is incredibly well-crafted, with very expensive lenses, high production value, extremely expensive — and delicate — cameras.
The weird thing is, if they just discovered these bodies, why the high production value cameras?
Why did they take the time to shoot such a well crafted video — instead of tending to the bodies, and making sure that they were all dead?
Why are all the bodies undisturbed? In such a situation, people usually drag the bodies out of the street, and usually put them side-by-side. Certainly the military would do that, if only to allow for military vehicles to pass through the street. But they remain in the middle of the street. That just doesn’t make sense.
You do not see any blood, any gore, and the bodies are lying very “tidy”. Again, doesn’t make sense.
I have enough experience with film production, video production, videos of dead bodies, and the lies of the Ukraine side,to be fully convinced that this is a staged hoax.
The Mayor of Bucha was questioning why the Ukrainian armed forces were shelling Bucha if the Russian forces left it – for two days.
Translation of the Telegram post:
The APU attacked Bucha, killing civilians
While in Europe they are trying to disperse the information wave on the topic of the “Buchan massacre”, showing shocking footage of corpses from the Bucha left by Russian troops, the Ukrainians themselves spoil the whole game for them.
The mayor of Bucha shows the results of the shelling of the city by the Ukrainian Armed Forces MLRS, while an unknown Ukrainian soldier in a social network asks a reasonable question “Why are the orcs retreating, while artillery is pouring even more?”
In Ukraine they call the military of Russia and the republics of Donbass for “orcs”.

All in all, this is just another White Helmet-like photo op, though the bodies here are, alas, real. From the colour of the blood and the lack of rigor mortis, they were dead for at most 1 day (see the timeline above!). The fact that they were bound by the white strips of cloth (which were uses by the civilians to indicate their non-combatant status) point to Azov using their favourite intimidation tactics, aim at residents of other villages under Russian control: “be friendly with the Russian forces, and you will die”. The same tactics was applied by the Azov to the residents of Mariupol trying to evacuate Eastwards or to people taking humanitarian aid from the Russian troops.
And finally, who benefits? Russia? Definitely not! Ukraine? Yes! So what would be the point for the Russian troops to do something like this and give the information war ammunition to Kiev? Why leave the incriminating evidence, unless a certain force wanted it to be found and filmed by Kiev? Or isn’t it the same as White helmet and their “Assad gassed his own people just as he was winning” so as to damage own image at that point? It sure looks like another fake that killed a nation – the staging of Srebrenitsa massacre in Yugoslavia.
Before all this screaming started, the Ukrainian SBU published a video where they should the “mop-up” in Bucha on the 2nd of April. With no bodies in the footage.
Oddities in the video of the “mop-up” by Ukrainian security forces in Bucha
One day before the publication of the video with the bodies on the streets of Bucha, Ukrainian special forces carried out a sweep in the city. This is evidenced not only by the message of the national police of Ukraine, but also by operational personnel.
Rodion Miroshnik, a diplomatic adviser to the head of the LPR, pointed out the new circumstances.
The representative of Lugansk put together three facts that challenge Kiev’s version of the Butch massacre. Firstly, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation left the city on March 30th, and then there were no dead on the streets. Secondly, the National Police of Ukraine announced an operation to clean-up the area from saboteurs and persons, according to their version, who collaborated with the Russians. The clean-up was supposed to take place on April 2.
The next day, on April 3rd, Ukraine officially made a strange video showing dead bodies on the roads of Bucha. At the same time, bodies suspiciously lying on display appear on the frames presented to the public. Miroshnik also pointed out the discrepancy in the time of the alleged death of people in Bucha. If this is the work of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, as Kiev is trying to expose, then the “victims” should have characteristic signs of decomposition that has started to show. However, in the video, Ukraine demonstrates either fresh or perfectly preserved bodies, Miroshnik noted.
What is even more strange, the dead do not appear on the previously recorded footage of the security forces, Miroshnik wrote in his Telegram channel. At the same time, there were no reports of the presence of Russian soldiers on the territory being cleaned-up.
“On the video of the national police itself, sternly entering an empty city, there are no bodies on the highway,” he noted.

The video in question from the above article is in this Telegram channel:
Translation of the Telegram post:
My viewers from Ukraine ask me – find irrefutable evidence that there was nothing in Bucha that the Ukrainian media write about,
The most disastrous for Kiev propaganda is the material – a clipping from the operational shooting of the special forces of the NSU, which carried out the cleaning of the Bucha, and which was clearly NOT WARNED, “about the monstrous crimes of the Russians.” Very interesting stuff (in every way). That is, they (the soldiers of the special forces of the National Guard of Ukraine, who were the first to enter Bucha, did not see the mountains of corpses that move their hands and then get up.
They have completely failed… to see any. How is it, Mr. Zelensky? Will you also show this video to your European partners? Or is it some other kind of “Trouble” [Bucha]?
A list of arguments from this post on Cont:
1. The first mention of the dead appeared 3 days after the departure of Russian troops
2. White armbands are worn on the bodies – they were put on by civilians, as a sign that Russian soldiers may not be afraid of them. The Russian military does not shoot at people with white armbands anywhere – this is a fact
3. The “corpses” are very artificially and deliberately laid out on a small stretch of road – for clarity on the video
4. Absence of signs of natural decomposition of bodies in a few days (it is important to remember that Russian troops left Bucha on March 30)
5. The bodies were specially recorded in the frames – there are photo evidence for this
6. There is a video in which one of the “corpses” sits down as soon as he left the frame (but remained visible in the rear-view mirror of the car)
7. The theatrical video with the “clearance of bodies” does not stand up to any criticism
8. Residents of Bucha themselves confirm that the Russian military did not use violence against them
9. The organizer of the fake was revealed – Ukrainian presenter Maria Orlova (link in tag)
10. Bucha is similar to the word butcher in English, it is obvious that the place was chosen for a reason! All this clearly follows the precepts of the “Goebbels propaganda” – which, however, is very logical for the Ukronazists! (Translator note: “Bucha” in Russian means a “debacle” or “turmoil”, so there is a double meaning, hidden message to Russia there as well)
The State Department has already announced!
US President Joe Biden said that the US and its allies will “respond” if Moscow decides to use chemical weapons.
What do we have as a result?
The evidence of the fake is striking. Ukraine has little to oppose on the military side, we have to fight on the information front, which is no less important! If the media of Ukraine did not differ in the absence of stuffing and fakes before, now it becomes difficult to find truthful information there at all.
I would add point 11 to the list: Russia proposed convening the UN Security Council meeting, yet UK blocked the initiative! So it feels like UK does not want to have this discussed!
And 12: “armband “own”: one of the frames clearly shows that the victim has a distinctive sign on his sleeve, which is used by LDPR fighters to designate “friend or foe” in battle (source)
“Yesterday, in the worst English traditions, the British presidency of the UN Security Council did not agree to hold a meeting of the Security Council on the situation in Bucha. Russia today will again demand the convocation of the UN Security Council in connection with the criminal provocations of the Ukrainian military and radicals in this city,” the diplomat [Maria Zakharova] said in her Telegram channel.
Add to it the rabid reaction by all Western leaders who accused Russia and started throwing out diplomats and talking of more sanctions at the moment the footage appeared, as if wating for the command, never mind verifications, never mind the previous fakes from Kiev. We’ve highly-likely seen this with the highly-likely never-proven Novichok hysteria with Skripals, the only known humans, before Navalny, to survive the agent, a fraction of milligram of which is enough to kill a small town.
In the meantime, EU to send investigators to probe alleged war crimes in Ukraine and “The investigative team dispatched by the EU will not act as an independent entity but will assist Ukrainian authorities in collecting evidence on site, the official signaled.” So, in other words, like with the MH-17 case, the murderer will be investigating his own crime, aided and abetted by EU. The commentors are mostly in agreement there:
UK delayed UN security council meeting so that they can practice their lies, while EU pledges toe assist Ukraine in building a better cover than they did with MH-17. Lets see how well their lies hold up.
They’ll investigate this false flag like they investigated mh17 with the predetermince outcome. Russia, as always, would have a better chance of being found innocent of any charges if investigations were done by those not desiring to destroy Russia in the first place. Ukraine was just about shortening the time of a nuclear strike to a couple of minutes by placing missiles on it’s territory in preparation for said strike….. This much has been known since the US discarded the ABM treaty believing that it could stop any retaliation from a first strike; only Russia’s preparation has made that goal unattainable just as destroying NATO infrastructure, exposing and removing the bioweapons labs and eliminating the true Nazi element in Ukraine will dash those hopes of strinking Russia from that territory.
UPDATE 05.03.2022: A comment on YT to a video, which I happened to see in othe sources:
2 hours ago
Contravening evidence to the so-called atrocity:
One clip published and later deleted by Ukrainian military commander Sergey Korotkih showed Ukrainian troops in Bucha discussing engagement rules. Korotkih, formerly a citizen of Belarus, is an open neo-Nazi who went to Ukraine back in 2014 to fight in the ranks of the notorious Azov Battalion. In Russia, Korotkih is wanted on multiple murder charges.
One of the fighters can be heard asking if it was OK to shoot at “guys not wearing blue armbands” identifying Ukrainian soldiers. The response was an affirmative “you bet”.
Some of the civilians apparently killed in Bucha were wearing white armbands. Russian troops had reportedly asked all civilians to wear them to identify themselves as non-combatants.
On 4/2, The Ukrainian national police said it had deployed its ‘Safari’ commando regiment to Bucha to “clear the territory of saboteurs and Russian troop collaborators,” as well as to “inspect the sites of war crimes committed by Russia.”
Evidence of purported Russian atrocities in Bucha began to pour out from the city on the same day. Images from the city showed streets littered with bodies in civilian clothes, some with their hands bound behind their backs.
I will post tomorrow about the real reason why the Russian troops were relocated to Donbass – to prevent a looming genocide of the Russian population there as Kiev shut down the main water supply to Donetsk
