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.
In the central park of Donetsk:
The streets, where the “Petals were noticed to begin with. The video (needs to be viewed from Telegram) shows several located “Petals” on a street
A car blew up on one such mine, while the person filming shows another undetonated mine:
Most of the mines in the open can me cleared effectively by gunfire, but many more will remain on the side-walks and in the grass, and will need to be cleared out by the sappers. And even after the Fourth Reich is defeated, many children of Donbass will be losing their lives to these mines in the years to come.
Below are several more materials on this recent Ukraine’s war crime.
Engineering troops sweep Donetsk for the “Petals”:
“Sappers found and neutralized more than a thousand “Petals” in Donetsk in a few days
More than a thousand saved lives!!!
Dear residents of DER!! Be vigilant, do not let some children go outside, look carefully at your feet, move along paved or well-viewed roads.”
These images show the damage done by the petal mine, and the Russian field surgeons saving the person’s foot!
And as usual, the ukro-Nazis are trying to shift the blame on Russia. Here is a post from the channel, combating the fakes:
Fake: Russian military bombarded the center of Donetsk with Petal anti-personnel mines, Ukrainian Telegram channels report.
Truth: This information does not correspond to reality. There is every reason to believe that the WHOLE center of Donetsk was mined. Earlier, they fired such mines at the cities of Lisichansk, Makeyevka, Izyum, Yasinovataya. In addition, an eyewitness on the video from the scene in Donetsk says that the city was attacked in Sushnikov.
Back in 2005, Ukraine ratified the Ottawa Convention, which prohibits the use, accumulation and production of anti-personnel mines. Kiev promised to dispose of the PFM-1 stocks available in the APU warehouses, but in reality only partially fulfilled its international obligations.
PS: And then, another act of terrorism from Ukraine, this time in Sevastopol:
