It was very surreal listening last year to Ursula von der Leyen’s State of the Union speech, standing there in a brown suite, giving a OUN/UPA Nazi collaborator greeting, and then proclaiming that Russia was taking chips out of dishwashers. So much so, that it prompted us, while working on the translation of “2 Years” – A Danish Underground Publication from 1943, to create a historical parallel caricature. At the same time, media was in a frenzy about how Russia, any second now will run out of missiles, or had actually already done so. It was also presenting a portent analogy to the media frenzy in the German-affiliated press in 1941, just as Nazi Germany invaded the USSR. I was saving the links to those publications back then, for a better time, which happened to be now…
Bizarre delusions of grandeur to go with self-seductive propaganda narratives seem to be inherent as Western imperialism once a century launches project “defeat and conquer Russia”.
German Nazism once displayed it big time, and EU and NATO now parrot their predecessor while openly aligning politically with Fascism.
Since the start of the SMO western MSM have consistently reported “Russia out of missiles”. A mantra that didn’t age very well and the humour is lost on no-one, when the articles are viewed in one take. We added some 1940s deja-vu, plus a little something for the full-spectrum experience.
Below are the introduction and the table of contents of the book:
The book ‘Ukraine’s Crimes Against Humanity (2022-2023)’ contains more than 400 testimonies of victims and eyewitnesses of Ukrainian war crimes and terrorist acts against civilians, committed between 2022 and 2023.
These testimonies have been collected by various public initiatives and organizations, including the International Public Tribunal on the Crimes of Ukrainian Neo-Nazis and Their Accomplices, the Foundation for the Study of Democracy, and many others. The non-governmental nature of the work of these organizations, and limited resources has allowed only a small number of the tens of thousands of Ukrainian war crimes to be documented.
The evidence of crimes presented in this book contains direct speech — the accounts of victims and witnesses of crimes — and is classified according to the types of crimes under international humanitarian law. In each case photographs and full details of the victims and witnesses are provided, allowing them to be re-interviewed both by the media and by national or international judicial structures.
The accounts presented in this book testify to massive Ukrainian war crimes, which under international humanitarian law are classified as crimes against humanity and have no statute of limitations.
We would appreciate if you could repost this message with this book in social media or pass it to the media and human rights organizations of your country.

As usual, the best way to avert a looming false flag is to alert about it. And the best false flag is the one that ultimately does not materialise. So, in view of this, here comes a die warning:
The Message from the Russian Ministry of Defence:
⚡️Joint Coordination Headquarters of Russian Federation for Humanitarian Response in Ukraine
❗️According to the available information, confirmed by several independent sources, a large-scale provocation is being prepared under the leadership of the Ukrainian president’s office aimed at discrediting the Russian Federation on the international scene.
◽️ In order to distract the attention of the international community from the facts of numerous war crimes committed by the servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and militants of nationalist formations published by the UN, Kiev regime has planned a special information campaign.
◽️ For its implementation, within the last two weeks, in Akhtyrka in Sumy region, an allegedly ‘advanced defence line of the AFU on the line of contact with the Russian troops’ has been prepared.
◽️ The bodies and remains of dead Ukrainian servicemen, whose deaths allegedly occurred as a result of hit by ‘Russian’ artillery ammunition filled with ‘poisonous substances’, are planned to be delivered to the equipped pseudo-positions.
◽️ Kiev regime envisages the treatment of this area and the remains of the Ukrainian servicemen with a poisonous substance. This will allow invited experts from the Western countries currently on Ukrainian territory to document the alleged ‘use of ‘chemical weapons’ by the Russian armed forces’.
◽️ To make the provocation more plausible, Ukraine’s special services have been instructed to prepare and publish on social media fake radio intercepts allegedly discussed by Russian servicemen preparing to use ‘chemical weapons’, as well as fabricated orders to receive special ammunition for Grad MLRS units.
◽️ According to Kiev regime’s intention, this provocation will make it possible to launch another media campaign to discredit the Russian Federation in the Western media, including an attempt to initiate UN Security Council meeting with accusations against the Russian Federation.
⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ URGENT! Poisonous substances have already been delivered to the region for Western experts to record the “use” of “chemical weapons” by the Russian Armed Forces
Some time ago Lada Ray made an excellent audio report on the reason of the slow flow of the military operation:
And a couple of days ago I saw that Russel Bentley posted a series of posts on his Telegram channel that explain well the reason for the slow progress of the Special Military Operation in Ukraine (and also why it is a SMO, and not a War). By the looks of it, the English text is a translation from Russian. I am reposting the text here in full and unaltered.
WORDS OF WISDOM READ UNDERSTAND SHARE
Why so slow?
The liberation of Donbass is not going as fast as we would like. And probably it seems especially slow to those who are waiting for it the most. Unbearably slow.
One of the reasons for the low speed of advance is the numerical superiority of the enemy and the well-fortified positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which were built over 8 years.
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?
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”.
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.
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:
This post will be a sticky list pointing to the independent, critical thinking journalists, analysts and sources of information on the conflict in Eastern Ukraine / Donbass / Novorossia. These resources proved themselves to be reporting what they see on the ground and are not beholden to the NATO-agenda of the Western MSM. But before we proceed, here is a list of Telegram channels with the running news feeds:
Not much room for humour today… The Ukrainian army did another deliberate terrorist strike with the American-supplied 155mm M-777 howitzers (per early reports) at the civilian areas in Donetsk and Makeevka, targeting school, kindergarten, residential areas. 5 people are dead, and 12 wounded, as per the latest reports. One of the killed is a child, born in 2009
This constitutes a war crime on the Ukrainian part, with USA being an accessory to murder. Later reports talk about rocket artillery “Smerch” with cluster warheads (war crime when used against civilian targets!).
UPDATE 31.05.2022: The dastardly Ukrainian terrorist attack on THREE SCHOOLS yesterday was premeditated by Ukraine – 30th of May is traditionally the end of school year, a time when both kids, their parents and teachers gather at schools to celebrate. This year such celebrations of the school-year-end were prudently cancelled. If not, the death toll among the children would have been hundred-fold!
UPDATE! Ukraine is on a murderous spree. A new artillery attack, this time striking a playground in Stahanov town in Lugansk, left two pregnant women dead, 15 people, including 4 children wounded!
The moment of the artillery strike was captured on video when an interview was conducted at a house nearby:
UPDATE 31.05.2022: 2 killed including 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL by Ukrainian army strike in Makeevka, Donetsk People’s Republic.
The Ukro-NATO handled Ukro-Nazis from the “Azov” battalion who’s been sitting blocked in the basements of Azovstal plant for weeks, surrendered unconditionally yesterday. First about 300 wounded were taken to the medical facilities in LNR. Next, the remainder of the neo-Nazis started to surrender and are being transferred to the processing facilities in the town Elenovka. Some of them will be sent to Russia to stand trial there, some will face trials in DNR and LNR (which, unlike Russia, do not have a moratorium on death penalty in place).
Incidentally, Ukraine shelled today the prison facilities in Elenovka, firing 10 artillery shells. It looks like Kiev wants to see those “Azovites” dead and not talking.
Special reportages right from the edge of Azovstal by Graham Phillips:
The militants of “Azov” and the AFU continue to surrender en masse at the Azovstal plant in Mariupol.
Over the past day, 694 militants voluntarily laid down their weapons and surrendered, including 29 wounded.
In total, since May 16, according to the Ministry of Defence, 959 militants have surrendered at Azovstal, including 80 wounded. 51 of them were placed in the Novoazovsk hospital of the Donetsk People’s Republic for further treatment.
The agency also publishes fresh footage of the exit of Ukrainian militants from the territory of the metal plant in Mariupol.
I have previously mentioned such independent Western journalists on-the-ground in Eastern Ukraine/DPR/LNR as Graham Phillips and Patrick Lancaster. I have newly become aware of one more such hands-on reporter there – Eva K. Barlett.
Spanish news outlet Rebelión has a lot on Ukraine with one article standing out: Ucrania, fábrica de fake news – an important read for the Spanish-language world on the background of the conflict, which MSM are mute about.
There is a saying that one should be careful of one’s wishes lest they become reality, but not in the way one thought they would.
Yes, “this war will be won on the battlefield”, but, just like in the ages past, it will be won by Russia. And extrapolating the not so recent history:
The Napoleonic wars were finished in 1814 by the Russian troops in Paris.
The German Nazi wars was ended in 1945 by the Russian troops in Berlin.
The USNATO Nazi war (with ukro-Nazis as proxies) will be ended in 202x by the Russian troops in… Washington?
The way the economic warfare by the US/EU/NATO is expanded and how the Russian exclave in Kaliningrad is ever more blockaded, it look like the US and EU are all set for an all out hot WWIII…
In the best case scenario, “this war will be won on the battlefield” of Ukraine, with Russia securing the Russian lands, and USNATO, not wishing to push their luck further, will be looking for a diplomatic way out.
In the pencil drawing on the right, the shadow of the old woman standing her ground is the iconic “Motherland Calling” poster of The Great Patriotic War. Here is that drawing in a greater resolution:
UPDATE: the minute granny has become a powerful living legend. Here is another, artistic, rendition of her image:
UPDATE 2: In Reutov, near Moscow, huge graffiti was created with a Ukrainian grandmother, who was mocked by the radicals of Ukraine because of the flag of the USSR. The author is reportedly a local artist. Earlier, images with the old woman appeared in the Murmansk and Belgorod regions. View the video of the painting process.
UPDATE 3: A video with comments from the foreign viewers embedded towards the end, to the “Sacred War”, the anthem of the fight against Nazism during the Great Patriotic War. It was great that the concern for her safety was raised at the UN level.
The video below made the headlines. It is quite heart-wrenching to watch as the Ukrainian soldiers are making a mockery of the elderly Ukrainian pair. I am writing a transcript below the video, and if it gets removed from YouTube, I’ll re-upload it to Odysee.
Kiev is churning out deadly false flags and provocations faster, than it is possible to analyse and disprove them.
Today Kiev military launched a “Tochka-U” missile at a railway station in Kramatorsk, killing several civilians. “Tochka-U” is an old ballistic missile system, used by Ukriane. Russia does not have it in its arsenal as it’s been fully superseded by “Iscander”. Being a ballistic missile., it is easy to calculate where it was launched from, and even who in the division in question pushed the “launch” button. And this was already done both by the Russian military and by an independent analyst.
Yet, Josep Borell, who is now sitting in Kiev, immediately accused Russia, as if waiting for the false flag:
Zelensky immediately said that it was “Tochka-U” (which, again, Russian forces do not have). Note how the Ukies wrote “For the children” on the rocket to make it look as if it is a retaliation:
In the meantime, Arestovich, the propaganda mouthpiece of the Kiev regime wrote on Twitetr about “Iscander”, while the tail part of the rocket in Kramatorsk is definitely a “Tochka-U”.
Here are the calculations, done by Yuri Podoljaka:
Flight trajectory, based on where the tail part fell (which always falls earlier then the warhead) and the final point of impact of the warhead:
According to the reports from Donetsk, the warhead of Tochka-U missile was loaded with 50 cassettes of clustered charges. After the interception, fragment of the rocket fell on the city not far away from the target, and one cluster exploded, causing death of the civilians, including women and a child. Shortly before that, a fake invitation was placed on the social media, asking women to gather in the center of the city, reportedly to get information about the state of their men fighting at the front, thus luring victims to the point of attack. If it were not intercepted, the death toll would have been in the order of hundreds of people.
“The Alley of Angels. To the memory of the killed children of Donbass.”
20 people were killed and 36 more were injured on Monday after a Ukrainian Tochka-U tactical ballistic missile exploded in the heart of the Donetsk People’s Republic’s capital. The Russian Foreign Ministry characterised the attack as a “crime against humanity” and warned that it would “not go unpunished.”
Moscow is disappointed over Western silence in the wake of the 14 March attack on Donetsk civilians, Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov has said.
“We are very, very disappointed that European leaders, my colleague [White House press secretary Jen] Psaki, her boss, US President Joe Biden, the leaders of international organisations, the leadership of NATO, have not said anything yesterday or today about Donetsk, or those civilian residents who died from the missile launched by the Ukrainian military,” Peskov said, speaking at a briefing with reporters on Tuesday.
“I will not give any personal assessment on this matter. I just want to state this and urge everyone to pay attention to this fact,” Peskov added.
A Ukrainian Tochka-U ballistic missile equipped with cluster munitions was shot down over the centre of the city of Donetsk on Monday, killing 20 civilians and injuring 36 others.
Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov suggested that the shelling of the Donetsk People’s Republic using such illegal cluster munitions was evidence that Ukrainian forces were seeking to kill as many civilians as possible, and said a decision on the Tochka-U’s use would require approval from the Ukrainian military leadership in Kiev.
