Daily Shincho: DPR and Mariupol through the eyes of a Japanese journalist

I came across this summary of an article in a Japanese newspaper Daily Shincho, written by a journalist who actually went to DPR and Mariupol and saw everything with her own eyes. Thus, the article is an outlier in the overall landscape of the Japanese pro-Ukrainian publications, and rather highlights the rule by becoming an exception. Still, every trickle of truth in the “Western” press is very much welcome!


Daily Shincho: DPR and Mariupol through the eyes of a Japanese journalist
14.09.2022

Japanese journalist Asuka Tokuyama visited Donetsk and Mariupol, after which she wrote an article published in the Daily Shincho. This article differs in many ways from those published in the Japanese media, since Tokyo officially supports Kiev.

“The Japanese Embassy in Moscow has a new “neighbour”. The Embassy of the Donetsk People’s Republic has officially opened across the street from our diplomatic mission. The fighting in the DPR was fierce then, the embassy was busy supporting evacuees and refugees, so the ceremony was not held”,

– writes Daily Shincho.

The denazification of Ukraine should take into account the mistakes and shortcomings in the denazification of Germany in 1940-1960

The demilitarisation of Ukraine (and the Greater Ukraine – that is NATO) is going to switch into another gear in a few days, and it will hopefully be concluded to a satisfactory degree some time in the next year.

This brings to the fore the other objective – denazification of the former Ukraine. Here, one must draw on the experience of the denazification of Germany done after the conclusion of WWII – in fact on the outcomes of two different approaches to the denazification. I am presenting below a translation of a historical work, that was published on Lenta.ru, with a back-up re-publicationon Cont. The article gives an excellent retrospective of the process. One thing that it should have mentioned is the process of denazification on the Banderite-festered territories of the Western Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and in the Blatic states. Sadly, after Khrushev came to power, he undid much of the effort to prosecute the Bandera Nazi collaborators, pardoning all of them. The majority settled in the city of Kharkov, which is one of the explanations why Kharkov of all cities had such an unexpectedly large concentration of the neo-Nazi Bandera followers – the descendents of those insufficiently denazified banderites.


The denazification project. How did the USSR and the West arrange the denazification of Germany after World War II?

Denazification is named among the main goals of the Russian special operation in Ukraine. But unlike demilitarization, which methods and goals are quite clear, few people are able to say what exactly lies behind the concept of “denazification” today. According to Moscow’s official position, its meaning is to abolish all laws and institutions that discriminate against citizens on the basis of language and nationality. And it’s time to turn to history in order to determine how this work should be carried out in practice. After the Second World War, Germany underwent a complex and multi-stage process of denazification. This gave her the opportunity to build relations with her neighbours from scratch and eventually become part of the world community. However, Moscow’s experience in this regard differed from the approach adopted in the zones controlled by the allied forces of the United States, Great Britain and France. What was the difference between the two approaches to denazification, why did USSR achieve the best results and how applicable this experience is today, — was analysed by Lenta.ru.

Goals and objectives

Battles were still raging on the fronts of the Second World War, while the allied countries were already thinking about what peaceful life would be like after the defeat of the Third Reich. Everyone understood perfectly well that the post-war settlement should also be political. It was necessary not only to destroy the German war machine, but also the regime itself, which unleashed the largest war in world history.

Stop Nazi Games – an animation by French Barracuda that says it all in under 2 minutes

This short animation by the French studio “Barracuda” says all there is to say about the root cause to the current conflict in Ukraine and other world conflicts in just under 2 minutes. A true case of when a picture – or a shot video – says more, than a 1000 words.

The terrorist state of Ukraine with its US-NATO sponsors seeking to create a nuclar disaster by attacking the Zaporozhie nuclear power plant

Over the past few days the terrorist state of Ukraine with full appoval from its US-NATO sponsors have been repeatedly shelling the largest nuclear power plant in Europe – the Zaporozhie nuclear power plant (NPP). If one keeps in mind hoe Zelensky boasted about the creation of a dirty nuclear bomb – which is one of the reasons Russia had to start the special military operation – it is not surprising that Russia was from the first days trying to keep the monkey away from the nuclear grenade. It did not help that what Russian specialists found at Zporozhie NPP was quite alarming – a certain amount of unregistered nuclear waste, which did not exist according to the papers and thus could have been used by Ukraine to create the aforementioned dirty bomb.

The reason I am writing this post is to translate a couple of Telegram articles from the journalist channel Rybar, and as a response to a conversation with Igor on a post on Lada Ray’s channel:

The idea of closing down Zaporozhie NPP has been aired in the comments, and by many other people. The following two posts first outline the problem and the danger presented to the Zaporozhie NPP from the acts of terrorism – the Ukrainian shelling, and then also addresses the question of closing down of the NPP, or, rather, why it should not be done. The original posts are linked below the translations.

Zaporizhia NPP, the “second Chernobyl” and innocent Ukraine

Due to the shelling of Europe’s largest Zaporozhye NPP, panic reigns in the world media: the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (sic!) want to arrange for a nuclear catastrophe and do not allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to save the world. The fact that the strikes are inflicted by the Ukrainian side does not bother anyone.

The @rybar team decided to conduct an analysis and explain whether a new catastrophe is in store for the world, who is to blame and why what is happening is happening.

Ukraine continues with terrorist attacks and war crimes to the silent approval of the West

In the past days the Ukro-nazis conducted several terrorist attacks and war crimes.

First, just as the Azov Nazi battalion POWs just started talking, realising that the premised “extraction” from ukraine was not coming, the Ukrainian military stuck the prison facilities where those POWs were held in the town of Elenovka. Ukrainians did a similar attempt previously, just after the Azov militants exited the Azovstal plant, but back then the strike came from a high-dispersal rocket launcher, and the damage was minimal – as far as I remember no one died. This time, Ukrainians got the American HIMARS systems, sporting accurate GPS-guided firing, and they hit the detention center once again, killing almost half of the inmates, depriving Russia of the valuable witnesses for the prosecution, and then, customary, shifting the blame on Russia, though Russia has nothing to gain and everything to lose from the extrajudicial death of those Azovites.

Ukraine is acting as a serial killer, which has gone unpunished for one, two, tree murders, and is now feeling invincible, killing with impunity, right left and centre. And the regimes in Washington, London, and Brussels are acting as guarantors for the unpunished war crimes of Ukraine, making it feel like that serial killer. Moreover, the West is shipping more and more weapons to the serial killer, hoping to see more blood.

And so this post is about two other, much more heinous war crimes of the Fourth Reich, aka. Ukraine, again going largely unnoticed in the West.

Since last Wednesday (27.07.2022) Donetsk was deprived of tap water – the Ukrainians are systematically performing artillery strikes at the water works. As Russell Bentley explained in his Telegram post:

I’m in Donetsk and can tell you that there has been no tap water since Wednesday night. It is a real pain. But filtered drinking water is available for 4 rubles a liter at stores and kiosks throughout the city. There is NO shortage of drinking water. There are also water distribution points set up throughout the city near the Kalmius River and other water bodies for “technical” (non-potable) water.
So there is water in Donbass. You just have to go out and get it. It is not a good or pleasant situation, but nobody is dying of thirst.

The ukrop (and US) nazis have targeted the water system in Donbass for years. The system that supplies Donetsk and Makeevka also supplies Mariupol, so they did not hit it too hard during the time they occupied it, but now that Mariupol is liberated, they deprive the civilians there of water too.

The pumping station and filtration plant are both well within range of nazi artillery, and will remain so for a while. It is currently being repaired, but will be targeted again. War is waste and destruction, this is war.
It is not a good or easy situation, but neither is it a crisis or emergency. Girkin is full of shit, as usual.

Ukraine actually did exactly the same to the whole Crimean peninsular with 2.5 million residents – they simply stopped the water from to them, and kept it shut since 2014 and until the Special Military Operation deblocked the water canal as one of the first of its objectives. But the West approved of this terrorist act – the deprivation of the population of the basic humanitarian needs as defined by the UN charter. And so the Ukro-nazis grew bolder and bolder.

Russell wrote that the situation was “neither is it a crisis or emergency”. Well, that was correct until the Urkos performed their next war crime – shelling Donetsk with cluster munitions that spread the PFM-1 “Petal” mines over the large areas of the city. Now, people going to the water distribution points risk losing their limbs or lives.

These mines explode on contact, and are almost unnoticeable, especially in the foliage. Children are likely to think they are a tow, and the explosion of this mine, while it leaves a grown-up without a foot, will kill a child.

Here’s how they look and the means by which they were delivered.

Note how the Western media (in this case, DW), even though presenting an article as a fact check, in the mind of a reader it is assigning blame right within the title! Read this comment to the post below for a break-down on how this Western MSM technique works.

Tale a good look at how sneakily the German (and all Western MSM) media writes articles such as these.

They write the headline containing a question that specifically associates the words “Russia” and “Butterfly mines” in the mind of the reader.

The readers (99% of readers are not subject matter experts on the topic) are now imprinted with the suggestion that Russia and butterfly mines are associated.

The middle section of the article then follows with almost meaningless content filling up space. Again, this is deliberate. Many readers will look at a headline and the first paragraph. They won’t come close to finishing the entire article.

Right at the end, the bottom of the article, DW come to the staggering conclusion that no, Russia is not dispersing these butterfly mines.

Also note the suspect and unreliable institutions they source for “fact checking”. They even included MI-6 and US Government associated fake amateur hour data analysts “Bellingcat”.

The intention of this article was never to disprove or inform the reader that Russia did not disperse butterfly mines.

The intention of the article was absolutely to create the impression with the reader that Russia does disperse butterfly mines and are guilty of atrocities against civilians, but they word it in such a way that they can claim innocence and pretend that they were providing accurate information.

The eventual conclusion in this article was correct, but the article is worded in such a way to achieve the opposite effect. This is a common MSM media misinformation technique, be aware of it.

Russian FM Sergej Lavrov’s Article “On dramatizations as a method of Western politics”

I have written a few times previously on how the fake flags and false flags are constantly being staged by the West. Ad even now, former Ukraine is sending drones of both attack and kamikaze types at the Zaporozhije nuclear power plant (the largest in Europe, so a nuclear disaster there will make Chernbyl look like child’s play) in the hopes of blowing it up (never mind the fall-out – literally – in the former Ukraine itself and Europe) only in the hopes of blaming Russia for the disaster. The West has already laid the groundwork for this nuclear false flag through the publications in the MSM.

Yesterday I came across an article written by the Russian Foreign Minister Segrej Lavrov for newspaper “Izvestija”, which really accentuates this particular Western mindset and it is finally said by the top Russian diplomat, taking the diplomatic gloves off.

I first saw a shortened highlights-only version of it on Yandex Zen, and then found the article proper on the site of “Izvestija”. I decided to translate the complete and unabridged article, as no one cane say it better, than Mr. Lavrov himself.


On dramatizations as a method of Western politics

Today, the Russian Armed Forces and the DPR and LPR militias are confidently solving tasks within the framework of the special military operation (SMO), seeking to end blatant discrimination and genocide of Russians and eliminate direct threats to the security of the Russian Federation created by the United States and its satellites on the territory of Ukraine for years. Losing on the battlefield, the Ukrainian regime and its Western patrons do not disdain to stage dramatizations “with blood” in order to demonize our country in the international public opinion. There have already been Bucha, Mariupol, Kramatorsk, Kremenchuk. The Russian Ministry of Defence regularly warns about the preparations of new staged incidents with facts in hand.

Provocative dramatizations performed by the West and its minions have a recognizable handwriting. And they did not start with Ukraine, but much earlier.

Potential False Flag alerts – Ukraine prepares false flags: Scorched earth in Avdeevka and “chemical attack” in Odessa

The best false flag is the one that does not materialise due to a preliminary world-wide exposure of its preparation. Kiev, using both NATO and Nazi handbooks is constantly seeking to set up false flags, but luckily the majority of them are exposed ast the preparation stage. The latest two that came into the spotlight yesterday are centred around the city of Avdeevka, which the Ukrainian forces are preparing to abandon, and around Odessa, which is the next strategically important direction for the denazification of the former Ukraine.

UPDATE 02.07.2022: Russian MoD issued yesterday another warning for Odessa that a “White Helmet”-like fake flag is about to be staged. And today something happened on a children’s resort centre, owned by Moldavia… Coincidence?

In addition, according to reliable information, the Kiev regime is preparing another provocation in Odessa for accusing Russian Armed Forces of assassination civilians (including minors) and deliberate destroying civilian infrastructure using cluster munitions prohibited by international agreements.

▫️ In order to implement this provocation, up to 20 representatives of foreign mass media, as well as employees of the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) had been transported to Odessa from June 26 to 28, 2022.

▫️ In case of attacks launched by units of Russian Armed Forces at the bases of Ukrainian armed groups, the military administration of Odessa region plans to simulate the destruction of a social facility where a crowd of actors (up to 30 anti-Russian activists) have been prepared to play the role of murdered and wounded people.

▫️ All the participants of the staged scenes are to be paid 500 USD, while each of them has already been paid 100 USD in advance.

Avdeevka

RUSSIAN MOD:From intercepted radio conversations of nationalists and foreign mercenaries, it has been reliably established that the militants, when the Russian Armed Forces and formations of the Donetsk People’s Republic approach Avdiivka, copying the “scorched earth” tactics used by the Nazis during the Great Patriotic War, intend to wipe the city off the face of the Earth. This is evidenced by one of these radio conversations (translated from Ukrainian):

“… we have an order to burn Avdiivka to the ground…

… and what about the peaceful…

…yes.. (obscene language), do what you want with them, just don’t let them out, … (obscene language) go home …”.

The purpose of such actions by Ukrainian nationalists is to accuse the Russian Armed Forces of allegedly indiscriminate attacks on civilian infrastructure facilities with extensive media coverage in the Ukrainian and Western media, according to an already worked-out scenario.

Odessa

Intelligence services of the Kiev regime are preparing provocations for accusing Russian Armed Forces of the alleged use of chemical weapons against civilian population. With this purpose, on June 18, 2022, representatives of the Security Service of Ukraine arrived in the Primorsky sanatorium of the Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine (Kurortny, Odessa region), in order to negotiate the issues on receiving, accomodating and providing medical care to people affected by chemical (toxic) agents.

We warn in advance the so-called civilised West, as well as the United Nations Organisation, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons that the abovementioned and other similar provocations are planned to be spread by western mass media and various Internet resources.

Warning: a “fake flag” was allegedly prepared by Ukraine in Nikolaev

First let me clarify the title. Everyone knows about the “false flags” – it is when someone performs a lethal attack on their own to blame it on the other side. Case in point – Bucha, where Ukrainian “forces” spent two days killing the pro-Russian people and setting up the stage for the “Wester indignation over Russian atrocities”.

Then there are outright fakes – staged footage or simple hear-say, which gets disproved pretty quickly, but leaves a scar of mistrust. For example, Gonzalo Lira exposed fakes from James Vasquez, but it was deleted by YT (or, maybe the Ukrainian KGB – SBU). “Untold Truths” has a mirror below:

And finally, there is something that I called for a “fake flag”. It’s like a mix of the two above, a staged performance with limited to no casualties, but aimed at igniting the “indignation of the ‘civilized’ West”.

Incidentally, the White Helmets terrorists did all three things in Syria, which is not surprising, given that both the White Helmets before and the Ukrainians now are tutored and controlled fromt the same centres. The “chemical attack” video shoot is the most exposed example of the White Helmets’ “fake flag”.

Back on June the 3rd the Russian Ministry of defence posted the following Telegram post with two videos of the “behind the scenes” of the British/Ukrainian filming effort that was leaked:

Against the backdrop of Kiev’s political catastrophe in Mariupol and military failures in Donbass, the Kiev regime, with British financial support, has organised the production of “morale raise” videos for Western and Ukrainian audiences.

▫️In particular, on May 28, staged video was filmed near Meshkovka, Nikolaev Region, of the alleged “high efficiency” of the use of Western weaponry by Ukrainian nationalists.

▫️To add more drama to the future film, at the insistence of British supervisors, a re-enactment of never-existing battle between Ukrainian Nazis and outnumbered “Russian soldiers” was created on the set.

▫️The roles of “opponents” of the Ukrainian Nazis in the staged short film were performed by members of the local territorial defence unit wearing red armbands.

▫️In the absence of trophy Russian equipment, the mock enemy appears in the frame using Ukrainian APCs and armoured vehicles.

▫️The next video shoot is scheduled for June 5 and 6.

And now to the warning. On June the 18th they published the post with the following message (quoting for those, without Telegram). What it describes is the quintessence of a “fake flag”!

⚠️ According to reliable information, it has been established that Ukrainian special services in Nikolaev have organized the preparation of video clips of allegedly destroyed private households and local residents left homeless as a result of shelling by the Russian Armed Forces.

▫️More than 40 actors were involved in the staged video filming and all participants were paid cash reward of $25.

▫️In the future, the staged footage will be distributed in the Ukrainian and Western media, accusing the Russian Armed Forces of indiscriminate strikes against civilian targets.

▫️Once again we emphasise to the entire international community that such fakes, cultivated by the Ukrainian “lie factory” at the order of Western curators, do not contain reliable and objective information.

❗️The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation treat civilians extremely humanely and do not strike at civilian infrastructure.

Ukraine sets a new anti-record in shelling of the civilians. War crime caught on camera.

Ukrainian “army” was very desperate at drawing the Russian troops away from Severodonetsk and wanting them to instead start a frontal assault on the well-fortified Avdeevka, where the Ukrainian troops have dug in using the civilians as the human shield. These were the reasons for the indiscriminate terrorist shelling of the residential areas of Donetsk city of the past days. A few days ago Ukraine set an 8-year record in shelling of the civilians: 13.06.2022 – The most brutal shelling of Donetsk city over the past 8 years. Now with French munitions, but yesterday, they beat it and shelled with an even greater ferociousness.

400 shells were fired at the city. 5 people were killed. over 20 wounded.

The Russian Air Force finally obliged the Ukrainian wish and returned fire, but using high-precision rockets, striking 12 firing position. As the result, 4 platoons of the “Grad” Multiple Rocket Launcher Systems and 4 platoons of the American-supplied M777 155mm howitzers were destroyed.

One attack by the Ukrainian terrorists on University street in Donetsk was captured on a security camera, and by the looks of it, it was a cluster bomb with exploding sub-munitions – this is a war crime, as such munitions are forbidden against targets where civilians might be found.

Graham Phillips drove through Donetsk as the shelling commenced. A video where one can see the destruction, a bloodied car. Towards the end of the video Graham evacuates two scared women:

13.06.2022 – The most brutal shelling of Donetsk city over the past 8 years. Now with French munitions

On the 13th of June 2022 the Ukro-Nazi forces conducted the most brutal, savage bombardment of Donetsk city that it has seen over the past 8 years of shelling. The bombardment can be comparable to what the residents of Leningrad had to endure from the German Nazis during the blockade of WWII. Some of the cluster munitions that fell on the residential areas of the city were delivered by France, which has now become an accessory to the war crime.

5 people have died, 35 were wounded. Among the targets of the ukro-Nazis was a maternity ward.

As Ukrainian Policy Matters Telegranm channel reported: “The French media published a story about how the artillerymen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine protect Ukraine. The next day, Ukrainian artillery shelled residential areas of the city of Donetsk, which caused fires throughout the city and many civilians were killed. Unfortunately, French TV channels ignored this story.”

“Donetsk, Shakhterskaya Square, now. 86 BM-21 Grad missiles, 14 BM-27 Hurricane missiles, more than 30 155-mm shells were fired at Donetsk IN THE LAST HOUR ALONE:”

A translation of the Telegram post of:

First Deputy Minister of Information of the DPR Daniil Bezsonov @neoficialniybezsonov

Yesterday, the Ukrainian Nazis launched massive strikes on the center of Donetsk using MLRS, artillery systems. Until late in the evening, the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the DPR extinguished fires throughout the city. The scale of the shelling is terrifying: 300 shells in two hours! “Grads”, “Hurricanes”, 155 mm NATO artillery. The most massive shelling of Donetsk in the entire history of this long—term conflict – both in power, density, and duration. Over the past day, five people were killed on the territory of the DPR and another 35 were injured.

One might have thought that this was artillery preparation before an offensive attempt, but no. If it had been artillery preparation, then the shelling would have been of a different nature. It would be conducted in the area where it would be necessary to suppress our forces, specifically in the area where a breakthrough would be planned. And the military infrastructure would suffer, not the civilian one. While the Ukrainian Nazis hit exclusively the civilian infrastructure — markets, maternity hospitals, residential quarters. This is the terror of the civilian population.

During yesterday’s shelling, Vishnevsky’s Donetsk maternity hospital suffered. The work of this maternity hospital will be suspended, the women in labour will be transferred to other similar Donetsk medical institutions. Chairman of the RF IC Alexander Bastrykin instructed to identify those involved in the shelling of Donetsk. In addition to the maternity hospital, city hospitals No. 1 and 20, primary health care centres No. 7 and 8 were under fire. I recall one of the massive shelling of Donetsk, during which a number of school institutions were damaged. Now the Ukrainian Nazis have gone through the hospitals.

Today we are witnessing a contradictory reaction of the West to what happened. German Channel One blamed Russia for the shelling of Donetsk. They must be getting Goebbels’ manuals that were collecting dusty in the archives. Even German journalists working in the DPR admit that the shelling was from Ukraine.

The UN, on the contrary, is concerned about what has happened, expressing extreme concern. The representative of the UN Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, said that strikes on medical institutions are unacceptable, this is a gross violation of international law.

It is sad to hear from UN representatives about gross violations of international law. After eight years of war, shelling of residential areas of Donbass, persecution of dissidents in Ukraine, the UN can only say that official Kiev has grossly violated international law. Although we have not expected anything from such organizations for a long time: there will be no impact on Ukraine, no persecution of Ukrainian Nazis by the international community. There will be only what we can achieve ourselves: we will kill all Ukrainian soldiers, and those who surrender will be judged by the law.

Here are more reports from the independent journalists on the spot:

Terrorist strikes by Ukraine using American 155mm M-777 artillery or cluster “Smerch” warheads at residential areas in Donetsk and Lugansk

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 warheards (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, thye 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.

Russia and LNR prevented a large chemical terrorist act by Ukro-NATO yesterday. Today saw a “smaller” chemical provocation by Kiev. People are disappearing in Odessa

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:


Thousands of tons of ammonia: how, during the retreat of the UAF, the Zarya chemical plant was mined in Rubezhnoye
Anna Nazaykina
May 16, 2022

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.

Earlier, the correspondent of Zvezda told how the servicemen of the Russian Federation and the LPR liberated the Zarya plant from the UAF.


And as the above did not go Ukro-NATO’s way, they did something similar today on the territory still controlled by Kiev, albeit in a “smaller” scale, blowing up ammonium nitrate. Re-publishing from SputnikNews:

Zelensky’s Bloody ‘Library’ – NTV Documentary, 03.04.2022 (English subtitles)

On the 3rd of April 2022 NTV aired a special documentary in the series “New Russian Sensations”. The title of the documentary is “Zelensky’s Bloody ‘Library'” and tells about the atrocities committed by the neo-Nazi “Azov” militants and SBU in the secret prison called “The Library” under the Mariupol airport. The majority of the documentary is dedicated to the witness accounts of the former inmates and to the testimony of an under-cover former SBU officer. A number of the testimonials of the locals residents of Mariupol and the flashback to the events of the 9th of May 2014 are also included.

After watching the documentary, I decided to record and translate it to English. This was a hard process, given the emotionally draining content. Still I took every care to make the translation as accurate as possible. The subtitles of the documentary film can be downloaded separately, and the complete transcript is presented below the video frame of the film, hosted on Odysee and Rumble, and can be viewed in either of the embedded players below.



On the 15th of April the censored SputnikNews had a short note about “The Library” as part of Donbass. Genocide. 2014-2022 — articles from SputnikNews:

Torture of Donbass Civilians in Secret Mariupol Prison

The republics of Donetsk and Lugansk (DPR, LPR) announced their independence from Ukraine following a coup in Kiev in February 2014. In response, Ukraine launched a military operation against the fledgling states, which escalated into a genocidal war against the Donbass population.

A secret prison, dubbed ‘The Library’, in which Ukrainian forces and nationalists like the Dnipro Battalion tortured Donbass militia fighters and civilians, used to operate at the Mariupol airport in 2014-2015. The prison had a special torture room in a separate building, where people suspected of sympathising with the separatist republics were subject to inhumane treatment.

Donbass. Genocide. 2014-2022 — articles from SputnikNews

SputnikNews, which the West blocked and censored for presenting the uncomfortable truths, is running a series of articles documenting and analysing the genocide of the Russian Donbass population by the ukro-Nazis, the genocide that Germany’s Olav Sholtz was laughing at, finding it amusing…

As always, you will need a VPN with an exit outside of the Western countries to access SputnikNews. A Singapore exit point should do the trick. Below is the link to the articles and a screenshot of the front-page for the reference, so that you know what the West does not want you to know about.

Earlier I did a full repost of the article Zombified Nation: How Young Ukrainians Were TAUGHT Children to Hate Russians. If you want any other articles reposted, please say so in the comment section. I will do it if it remains technically feasible.

Donbass. Genocide. 2014-2022

This special project was launched to shed light on what has happened in Donbass over the past eight years, with the aim to show not only episodes of crimes by the Kiev regime against the civilian population, but also to explore the roots of the disaster occurring in the region.

In 2014 the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs was keeping a White Book of the Ukrainian atrocities in Donbass. I wrote about it back then in this post: Recent Ukraine human rights violations released in ‘White Book’ report. With time, the sheer number of atrocities became so overwhelming, that the Russian side stopped logging them in those White Books, but rather transferred the handling of those cases from the ministry of foreign Affairs to the Russian Investigation Commission. I kept the copes of those White Books on my site at the post mentioned above.

I am presenting below a translation of an article from RIA Novosti (Russian Information Agency). The site, like almost al Russian site, both English-language and Russian-language alike, is blocked in the West, but is accessible through VPN. Alternatively, a repost the article in Russian can be read on Cont. This is not something that is reported in the Western MSM for the sole reason that the Western reporters are studiously looking the other way, like they were looking at Charly Hebdo in 2014 while Donbass was starting to bleed at the hands of the Kiev junta.

“Even foreigners are being captured”: what is happening in the port of Mariupol

Mariupol, the 13th of April, Victor Zvantsev.

The DPR troops blocked the port of Mariupol, where the surviving units of the Azov battalion took refuge. The enemy continues to snarl, but weaker and weaker — ammunition is running out. The nationalist leaders are trying to escape by air, and their subordinates are breaking through on the ground. This RIA Novosti report is about how the seaport was stormed and what its employees tell us.

Chopper with ammunition

Destroyed docks, a burnt—out cargo ship, wrecked loaders, mine shanks stuck in the asphalt – this is how part of the Mariupol port looks like, which came under the control of the republican forces the day before. Behind a long concrete pier, just a couple of hundred meters away, there are Ukrainian positions.

The pier serves as a shelter for gunners, spotters and tankers. After driving out from behind a concrete block, the T-72 turns the tower around, fires three shots and hides again. In response, mines fly, but they fall several tens of meters from the target.

“Although we are already in full control of the situation, the enemy is still strong,” says the shooter of a Separate brigade of the operational purpose of the DNR “Shram” (at his request, the call sign was changed). — A couple of hours ago, for example, our tank was hit. The crew was killed, and the vehicle burned down. We can’t wait for the Nazis to run out of ammunition.”

The Azovites, according to the fighters, are now fighting extremely economically — in a month and a half their reserves have been severely depleted. There are many depleted caches on the liberated territory. They prepared for the battles here for a long time and thoroughly.

“We have blocked all routes for the delivery of weapons: on land, water and in the air,” Shram continues. — The last attempt was made a week ago. We shot down a chopper that had flown in from Zaporozhye for the leadership of the battalion. The captured crew reported that before the evacuation they managed to throw boxes of ammunition, grenades and mines into the harbour.”
