US Congressman Jamie Raskin says Russia must be destroyed because of its Christian traditions
I – and a whole lot of other people – have long suspected that the LGBT issue is at the heart of the Democrat and Neocon loathing of Russia.
Now comes Jamie Raskin and admits it. He HATES traditional values, especially Christian ones.
So when military “expert” psychos tell us they are defending “Western values,” we now know what they arereallytalking about.
Destroy Russia? Has Jamie boy ever heard of retaliation? I hope he has a DEEEEP bomb shelter and plenty of canned tuna.
We are all Nazis now
No, actually, some of us are not, despite the desperate lies coming out of the lie factories euphemistically called the “media.”
Thus, the fiendish US-led Western press has been working overtime to convince you of several contradictory concepts
1--There are no – or only a negligible few – Nazis in Ukraine, probably no more than in any other country. Reports that Ukraine is Nazi-infested are pure Russian propaganda.
2—If there are any Nazis there, they are not in positions of power. only the Russian propagandists deny this.
3—Ukraine Nazis are good guys, war heroes who love their country and aim to defend its sovereignty. only Russian propaganda tells us the opposite.
The US “news” also tells us so many more kinds of lies it’s hard to list them all.
But this contemporary style of lying is actually new because the idiots who tell the lies contradict each other and don’t bother to iron out the obvious whoppers. Until recently, they admitted that there were plenty of Neo-Nazis in Ukraine, and they described their fiendish behavior in grisly detail.
But once the Russians went in to defend their country against these fiends, all of a sudden there were none. Putin was just land-hungry or insane. There was never any years of genocide in the Donbass so his war was “unprovoked,” the going tale, and Putin was out of his skull.
In fact, independent reporters who tell the truth about this scum are punished. The Kiev-based Center for Countering Disinformation compiles and publishes a kill list explicitly intended to allow terrorists to locate and kill you if you tell the truth. It’s WAY beyond Orwellian of Kafkaesque.
But the breathtakingly reckless lies are a new phenomenon. Just a scant few years ago, Western journalists were openly telling the truth about the Ukronazis.
Here’s one early report that admits they kind of sound like Nazis but they’re heroes nonetheless:
Linked below is another report from as late as 2016 that tells the unvarnished truth about the Ukronazis and even exposes a Ukrainian historian who has been lying to make them look good. [He occupies a high government position now, with the full support of Biden’s keepers)).
You have to ask yourself what will historians make of these in-your-face contradictions between today’s obvious lies and the honest reporting of just a few years ago.
Now if the West had continued to report in this straightforward vein of just-recent times, it would be impossible for the non-geriatrically impaired members of the Biden team to send taxpayer-paid lethal “aid” to Ukraine because you’d all know this was a monumental waste of both your money and Ukrainian lives.
The US would have had to force the Ukrainians to negotiate.
But the plan has been to harass and impoverish the Russians, as admitted by Uncle Tom Lloyd Austin, and that is the reason for the lies you see and hear all around you.
The fact is, you don’t deserve to be ripped off to the tune of billions upon billions at a time when you are struggling to survive amidst an unprecedented economic crisis, and the Russians don’t deserve to be dragged into the mud.
But the Europeans are worse, MUCH worse, off though winter is coming and there are increasing numbers of protests all over Europe where sound minds prevail (which does not apply to the rabidly Russophobic Baltic statelets and Poland, which are cutting off their noses as fast as they can to spite their faces).
Things will look quite different by spring, and some are predicting that the EU will not even last ‘til then.

How to get away with genocide: legal issues arising from the Tantura massacre
Who bears responsibility for the Al Tantura massacre, and how should they be held accountable? In the early stages of 1948, a week after the British mandate left Palestine, the village of Tantura was targeted by the Israeli militaries. A recent documentary revealed the story of the massacre including testimonies from several IDF veterans affirming that a massacre involving up to 200 Palestinian victims had taken place at that time.
BY ALYA ZOABI, Mondoweiss, FEBRUARY 4, 2022
I am surprised that this article implies that this new Israeli film is the first to “reveal” the Tantura massacre. Arab Loutfi’s Over Their Dead Bodies exposed this horrific genocidal act back in 2008. Loutfi’s film is compelling, both aesthetically and in terms of its critical content. Her film is thoroughly anti-Zionist (unlike the Israeli film). And it is available for viewing — for free — on Loutfi’s YouTube page. Why do we always give credence to Israeli “revelations” of Zionist violence and criminality while discounting — indeed throwing into to dustbin of history — Palestinian and Arab critiques and exposes? The new Israeli film needs to be called out for what it is: a cooptive work of hasbara. Already journalists in the Arab world are making that case. So why are we in the Anglophone press ignoring the facts?! Loutfi’s film needs to be seen and written about widely. I for one have written about it in my new book on Palestine cinema , part of which focuses on works of Arab Loutfi.

STRIKES on UKRAINE on OCTOBER 29: WHERE THE EXPLOSIONS WERE, WHAT THE DAMAGE WAS, LATEST NEWS
The Russian Armed Forces continue to strike at energy facilities in the Ukrainian oblasts.
We report what is known about explosions and air raids in Ukraine at this hour on October 29th.
According to civil and official TG channels, strikes were recorded in the Mykolaiv [RU: Nikolaev],Zaporozhye, Kharkiv [RU: Kharkov]and Donetsk oblasts of Ukraine [Kharkov is important because the Russians plan to hold a referendum there, once the Ukronazis can be cleared out, with 75% expected to vote for accession to the RF. All referenda held by Russia are called “sham” referenda in the Western press even though over 70% of the populations vote in favor of accession to the RF. According to international law, there is nothing sham about that at all and this shows that the REAL sham is the Western reporting, which censors all reports of abuses and atrocities committed by the Ukronazis!]. There is information that Russian troops hit the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Gai, Khrenovka and Leonovka, in Chernihiv [RU: Chernigov. At the northern border and bordering the Dnieper River across from the Kiev oblast] oblast . In the Kharkiv [RU: Kharkov]oblast, the RF Armed Forces delivered strikes against enemy concentrations in Veterinarnoe, Strelechya and Staritsa.
In the Starobelsky direction, Russian troops inflicted artillery strikes on Ukrainian formations in Chugunovka, Dvurechnaya, Berestovoy and Olgovka. [In this context, it needs to be noted that Russian strikes by artillery and standoff weapons have recently destroyed a platoon of HIMARS and M777 systems, demonstrating that your taxpayer funded lethal “aid” to Ukraine is a big boondoggle and is of no strategic value. YOU the taxpayer and voter are being scammed to take the lives of more of the Ukrainian troops they claim you are saving.]
In the Bakhmut (Artyomovsky [obsolete name od Bakhmut]direction, Russian missile troops and artillery struck accumulations of manpower and equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Bakhmut, Bakhmutsky, Belogorovka, Soledar and Kleshcheevka.
In the Donetsk direction, the RF Armed Forces hit targets in Yakovlevka, Avdeevka, Novomikhailovka, Pervomaisky, Vodyany and Ugledar.[While Donetsk is technically under Russian control and is now part of the Russian Federation, the Ukronazis are still attacking mostly civilians there, just as they had for the last 9 years since the Obamanazis took over the power in Kiev- Obama and his rats nest KNEW his vassals would be fighting the Russians in the future, which was part of the fiendish Maidan plan. What he did NOT know is that the Russians would be winning and taking over territory. Now this brave war hero is going around the country trying desperately to salvage Democrat seats in Congress.]
Strikes on Nikolaev on October 29 – details [Note the mixing of Ukrainian with Russian names]
On the Nikolaev-Berislav axis, Russian troops hit the concentrations of Ukrainian formations in Davydov Brod, Kobzartsy and Malaya Seydeminukha.
Powerful explosions were heard in Nikolaev. Telegram channels post photos showing columns of smoke from a fire in the oblast. At the same time, the air raid was not announced, Ukrainian telegram channels write that the shelling is carried out from Russian S-300 [air defense] systems.
Strikes on the Zaporozhye oblast on October 29 - where the shelling took place
In the Zaporozhye oblast, Russian troops attacked the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Maly Shcherbaki and Hulyaypole. At the same time, at night the RF Armed Forces worked on enemy firing points in Nikopol and Dobraya Nadezhda.
STRIKES on UKRAINE on OCTOBER 30
The intensity of the strikes is the same as yesterday but the focus today is on power installations again. More of the targets are in the central oblasts. It will be more difficult than ever for the trains to transport the troops and newly shipped weapons to the front.
If the “leaders” had any sense, they’d stop sacrificing lives for a lost cause.
Мы, запад, все теперь нацисты
Нет, на самом деле некоторые из нас не такие, несмотря на отчаянную ложь, исходящую из фабрик лжи, эвфемистически называемых «СМИ».
Таким образом, дьявольская западная пресса во главе с США работает сверхурочно, чтобы убедить вас в нескольких противоречивых концепциях.
1. В Украине нет нацистов — или их очень мало — вероятно, не больше, чем в любой другой стране. Сообщения о том, что Украина заражена нацистами, — чистая российская пропаганда.
2 — Если там и есть нацисты, то они не во власти. Это отрицают только российские пропагандисты.
3 — Украинские нацисты — хорошие ребята, герои войны, любящие свою страну и стремящиеся защитить ее суверенитет. Только российская пропаганда говорит нам об обратном.
«Новости» США также сообщают нам так много других видов лжи, что трудно перечислить их все.
Но этот современный стиль лжи на самом деле нов, потому что идиоты, которые лгут, противоречат друг другу и не удосуживаются сгладить явные махинации. До недавнего времени они признавали, что неонацистов в Украине предостаточно, и описывали их зверское поведение в жутких подробностях.
Но как только русские пошли защищать свою страну от этих извергов, их вдруг не стало. Путин был просто жадным до земли или сумасшедшим. Геноцида на Донбассе никогда не было в годы, поэтому его война была «неспровоцированной», а Путин был не в своем уме.
Фактически, независимые репортеры, рассказывающие правду об этой сволочи, подвергаются наказанию. Киевский Центр по противодействию дезинформации составляет и публикует список убийств, явно предназначенный для того, чтобы позволить террористам найти и убить вас, если вы скажете правду. Это НАМНОГО хуже Оруэлла или Кафки.
Но умопомрачительно безрассудная ложь — явление новое. Буквально несколько лет назад западные журналисты открыто говорили правду об укронацистах.
Вот один ранний отчет, в котором признается, что они похожи на нацистов, но, тем не менее, они герои:
Ниже по ссылке находится еще один отчет от 2016 года, в котором рассказывается неприкрашенная правда об укронацистах и даже разоблачается украинский историк, который лгал, чтобы они выглядели хорошо. [Он сейчас занимает высокий государственный пост, при полной поддержке кураторов Байдена)).
Вы должны спросить себя, что сделают историки из этих бросающихся в глаза противоречий между сегодняшней очевидной ложью и честными сообщениями всего несколько лет назад?
Теперь, если бы Запад продолжал сообщать в прямолинейном духе недавнего времени, члены команды Байдена, не страдающие гериатрическими нарушениями, не смогли бы отправить Украине смертельную «помощь», оплачиваемую налогоплательщиками, потому что вы все знали бы об этом. Это была колоссальная трата как ваших денег, так и украинских жизней.
США пришлось бы принуждать украинцев к переговорам.
Но план состоял в том, чтобы беспокоить и доводить русских до нищеты, как признал дядя Том Ллойд Остин, и это является причиной лжи, которую вы видите и слышите вокруг себя.
Дело в том, что вы не заслуживаете того, чтобы вас обворовывали на миллиарды за миллиардами в то время, когда вы боретесь за выживание в условиях беспрецедентного экономического кризиса, а русские не заслуживают того, чтобы их втаптывали в грязь.
А вот европейцам хуже, НАМНОГО хуже, хоть зима и близится и все больше протестов по всей Европе где преобладает здравомыслие (что не относится к оголтелым русофобским прибалтам и Польше, которые так же быстро отрезают себе носы, как могут, назло своим лицам).
К весне все будет выглядеть совсем иначе, и некоторые предсказывают, что ЕС даже не протянет до тех пор.

Как избежать наказания за геноцид: юридические вопросы, связанные с резней в Тантуре.
Кто несет ответственность за резню в Аль-Тантуре и как они должны нести ответственность? В начале 1948 года, через неделю после того, как британский мандат покинул Палестину, деревня Тантура стала мишенью израильских военных. В недавнем документальном фильме была показана история резни, в том числе показания нескольких ветеранов ЦАХАЛа, подтверждающие, что в то время имела место резня, в которой пострадало до 200 палестинцев.
АЛЬЯ ЗОАБИ, Mondoweiss, 4 ФЕВРАЛЯ 2022 Г.
Я удивлен, что эта статья подразумевает, что этот новый израильский фильм является первым, который «раскрывает» резню в Тантуре. Фильм араба Лутфи «Над их мертвыми телами» разоблачил этот ужасный акт геноцида еще в 2008 году. Фильм Лутфи убедителен как с эстетической точки зрения, так и с точки зрения критического контента. Ее фильм насквозь антисионистский (в отличие от израильского). И он доступен для просмотра — бесплатно — на странице Лутфи на YouTube. Почему мы всегда доверяем израильским «разоблачениям» сионистского насилия и преступности, игнорируя — фактически выбрасывая на свалку истории — палестинскую и арабскую критику и разоблачения? Новый израильский фильм нужно назвать тем, чем он является: совместной работой хасбары. Об этом уже говорят журналисты в арабском мире. Так почему же мы в англоязычной прессе игнорируем факты?! Фильм Лутфи нужно увидеть и написать о нем широко. Я, например, написал об этом в своей новой книге о палестинском кино, часть которой посвящена творчеству араба Лутфи.

УДАРЫ ПО УКРАИНЕ 29 ОКТЯБРЯ: ГДЕ БЫЛИ ВЗРЫВЫ, КАКОЙ УЩЕРБ, ПОСЛЕДНИЕ НОВОСТИ
Вооруженные силы России продолжают наносить удары по объектам энергетики в областях Украины.
Сообщаем, что известно о взрывах и авианалетах на Украине в этот час 29 октября.
По данным гражданских и официальных каналов ТГ, удары зафиксированы в Николаевской [RU: Николаев], Запорожской, Харьковской [RU: Харьков] и Донецкой областях Украины [Харьков важен тем, что русские планируют провести там референдум, как только укронацисты будут выбиты из него, при этом ожидается, что 75% проголосуют за присоединение к РФ. Все референдумы, проводимые Россией, в западной прессе называются «фиктивными» референдумами, хотя более 70% населения проголосовало за присоединение к РФ.
Согласно международному праву, в этом нет ничего фальшивого, и это показывает, что НАСТОЯЩАЯ фальсификация — это западные репортажи, которые подвергают цензуре все сообщения о злоупотреблениях и зверствах, совершенных укронацистами!]. Есть информация, что российские войска нанесли удары по позициям ВСУ в Гае, Хреновке и Леоновке, в Чернигове [RU: Чернигов. На северной границе и на берегу Днепра напротив Киевской области] область. В Харьковской области ВС РФ наносили удары по скоплениям противника в н. п. Ветеринарное, Стрелечья, Старица.
На Старобельском направлении российские войска нанесли артиллерийские удары по украинским соединениям в Чугуновке, Двуречной, Берестовой и Ольговке. [В этом контексте необходимо отметить, что российские удары артиллерии и противостоящего оружия недавно уничтожили взвод систем HIMARS и M777, демонстрируя, что летальная «помощь» Украине, финансируемая вашими налогоплательщиками, является большой бесполезной тратой времени и не имеет стратегической ценности. ВАС, налогоплательщика и избирателя, обманывают, чтобы лишить жизни еще больше украинских военнослужащих, которых, как они утверждают, вы спасаете.]
На бахмутском (артемовском [устаревшее название Бахмут] направлении российские ракетные войска и артиллерия нанесли удары по скоплениям живой силы и техники ВСУ в Бахмуте, Бахмутском, Белогоровке, Соледаре и Клещеевке.
На донецком направлении ВС РФ наносили удары по целям в Яковлевке, Авдеевке, Новомихайловке, Первомайском, Водянах и Угледаре. точно так же, как и в течение последних 9 лет с тех пор, как Обаманацисты захватили власть в Киеве - Обама и его крысиное гнездо ЗНАЛИ, что его вассалы будут сражаться с русскими в будущем, что было частью дьявольского плана Майдана. Чего он НЕ знал, так это того, что русские будут побеждать и захватывать территорию. Теперь этот отважный герой войны колесит по стране, отчаянно пытаясь спасти места демократов в Конгрессе.
Удары по Николаеву 29 октября – подробности [Обратите внимание на смешение украинских с русскими именами]
На николаевско-бериславском направлении российские войска наносили удары по скоплениям украинских соединений в Давыдов-Броде, Кобзарцах и Малой Сейдуминухе.
В Николаеве прозвучали мощные взрывы. Телеграм-каналы публикуют фотографии, на которых видны столбы дыма от пожара в области. При этом о воздушном налете не сообщалось, украинские телеграм-каналы пишут, что обстрел ведется из российских комплексов С-300 [ПВО].
Удары по Запорожской области 29 октября - где произошел обстрел
В Запорожской области российские войска атаковали позиции ВСУ в Малых Щербаках и Гуляйполе. При этом в ночное время ВС РФ работали по огневым точкам противника в Никополе и Добрая Надежда.
УДАР ПО УКРАИНЕ 30 ОКТЯБРЯ
Интенсивность забастовок такая же, как и вчера, но сегодня в центре внимания снова энергоустановки. Больше целей находится в центральных областях. Поездам будет труднее, чем когда-либо, перевозить на фронт войска и только что отгруженное вооружение.
Если бы у «лидеров» был хоть какой-то смысл, они бы перестали жертвовать жизнями за безнадежное дело.
The difference between today's West and the
Third Reich is merely semantic
In English: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=1069
In Russian: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=969
It is important to note that both in the WWII era and in today’s post-Maidan era, the invasion by foreigners with a similar extremist ideology was a catalyst and a source of instigation/sponsorship for the implementation of the Nazi/fascist idea.
The common denominatorboth then and now was the racist Russophobia present in Germany then and in Washington now.
The US version of Russophobia was evidenced by the appearance of the Wolfowitz Doctrine of Russia containment, part of the official Defense Planning Guidance for the 1994–99 (dated February 18, 1992) published by US Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Paul Wolfowitz and his deputy Scooter Libby. Though not intended for publication, it was leaked to the New York Times on March 7, 1992, and sparked a public controversy about U.S. foreign and defense policy.
Now look at those dates. This document, calling for containment of Russia, was dated Feb 1992, the year after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Previously, US defense policy was predicated on preventing the spread of communism by containing the Soviet Union.
One would have expected this policy to fade away as relations with the new Russian Federation were initiated, because the Yeltsin government had shown an unusual friendliness and willingness to cooperate with the US.
The fact that the US, instead of cultivating relations with the new Russian government, actually tightened its anti-Russian policies suggests that the prior troubles with US-Russian relations were not just based on the desire to contain communism and keep the Soviets in line. The exacerbation of Russophobic foreign policies after the fall of the USSR clearly indicated that the people writing US foreign policy were motivated by something else, namely, an irrational fear and animosity toward Russia and the Russian people.
The Defense Planning Guidance called for containing a new unknown government that the US had no right nor reason to contain or constrain in any way. After all, consider how the West reacted to the real enemy in Europe that had wrought billions of dollars’ worth of damage and had killed 75-80 million people, or about 3% of the world’s population! Within a few years, far from enforcing a containment policy against Germany, the US was extending a hand of friendship in the form of the Marshall Plan that helped rebuild the war-torn country and put it on a track to become the economic locomotive of Europe.
Where was the Germanophobia in the US Defense policy? There was none. In fact, to the contrary, the US soon made Werner von Braun, the brains behind the V-2 rocket that destroyed much of London, the head of the US space program. The US Operation Paperclip gave German war criminals high well-paid positions in government. https://ahrp.org/category/scientific-racism/operation-paperclip/
In Europe, former Nazi officials with records of human rights violations were the founders of the EU, as exposed by Rodney Atkinson. https://yandex.ru/video/preview/?filmId=4972855486659434140&from=tabbar&parent-reqid=1658069906500945-9327222906107657820-sas2-0195-sas-l7-balancer-8080-BAL-1934&text=rodney+atkinson+nazis+and+fascists+who+founded+eu(2011)
(The Nazis and Fascists who founded the EU and their influence today - Rodney Atkinson)
It is only natural that these former Third Reich officials would found a group that today wholeheartedly supports a Nazi-infested government and military in Ukraine today and seeks to destroy Russia.
So the Germans, the real villains in WWII, got richly rewarded and honored in the West after nearly destroying their continent, while the Russians, who contributed more to the military defeat of the Nazis, were ground into the dust after the Soviet Union collapsed.
That looks a lot like institutionalized racist Russophobia. And Russophobia is one of the main pillars of Nazism/fascism. Hiding this behind semantic hair-splitting does nothing to change the Satanic nature of a phenomenon that has not changed substantially since WWII.
Nothing of substance has changed, and those who seek to disguise this inhuman ideology by renaming it or dwelling on semantics are in fact supporting it. No support for this repulsive ideology can lead to peace and none should be tolerated.
Those of us who fear the encroachment of this racist, hateful, murderous ideology can see that the idea of the US as the Exceptional Nation and the interpretation of this term to mean a nation that is not subject to laws except as it concocts to protect its murderous actions is not substantially different from the idea expressed by Deutschland über alles. And this idea that one country or race has the right to lord it over all other nations is the evil core of Nazismand must be the focus of our discussion of it -- not some peripheral trappings that are of no importance.
Russia is the only entity that seeks to eradicate it and must be supported until it has succeeded.
Putin has hinted that Russia will eradicate this fiendish ideology not only in Ukraine but in the countries that support it with weapons. He is the only one who understands the problem in all its magnitude and knows how to bring about REAL peace.
If you don't like the name he has given this hideous and hateful ideology, you can keep your arguments in the realm of academe. It has no place in a discussion of peace and HOWpeace must be achieved.
Dear Dr. Leo and Hank,
If we want be precise (and usually political philosophers and politicians are not), we can distinguish between:
Nazism -- related to NSDAP (Nazi) party in Germany and those who follow its traditions by displaying swastikas and so on;
Fascism -- originated in Italy, but meaning more broadly usage of violence in attaining political goals (extra-right);
Militarism -- maintain strong military capability and military built-up to use it aggressively to secure national interests;
Imperialism -- aiming at the change of the current balance of power to invade and dominate other countries.
The US can be accused of militarism and imperialism and war crimes in WWII, Vietnam and so on, but it cannot be accused of Nazism and fascism -- this is why it is possible to talk to the US (as it was the case during the Cold War). Today's Western European countries cannot be accused of any of these. Today's Ukraine can be accused of fascism (extrme-right, ultra-nationalism) and partially of Nazism (public display or Nazi German uniforms and symbols).
Nazism and fascism are ideologies. People who believe in (any) ideologies are fanatics. This is why it is so difficult to talk to the Ukrainans (the Kiev government).
Peace in Ukraine can be obtained under American and European pressures. But this is also difficult because West European countries are under the influence of the US with its militarism and imperialism, as well as with economic and geopolitical interests, and in some countries there is now a lot of anti-Russian propaganda (Russophobia).
Again, I am a political philosopher, IR theorist and former diplomat. I think about the world politics in humanistic terms. I am not a political scientist or statistician. I have written several books mostly in English (may I recommend Tractatus Politico-Philosophicus).
Furher, I represent the traditional European view that all human efforts without a link to God are fruitless. As this is very difficult to solve the current Russian-Ukrainian conflict, we need to turn to God for help. This is why I wrote the Litany for peace in Ukraine.
The Litany was spoken at a peace demonstration in Warsaw on 25 June 2022. It is now in four languages (Polish, English, Russian and Spanish). If you all could help me to find publishers for the Litany in different countries, this would make the peace message stronger.
We need to believe that beyond finite human powers, there is much greater power that is related to infinity. As Plato one said: God, and not human beings, is the measure of political order (Laws 716c).
This is very good that Russia comes now back to Christian religion; Poland has never departed. This is our strength. Let us understand that we are all brothers in faith and we need to learn how to solve conflicts peacefully.

We cannot achieve anything by merely talking about concepts.
Words such as fascism, Nazism, militarism or imperialism have precise meanings, which should be clarified. As scholars, we should use them in an emotional sense.
Fascism/Nazism can be related to the destruction of other races, but more common it is about the destruction of other nations/ethnic groups.
The German Nazis, who believed themselves to be a super race, tried to completely annihilate the Jews, but aslo other nations that they believed to be subhuman: the Poles and the Russians.
The Ukrainian Nationalists (fascists) claimed: Ukraine must be as clear as a grass and practiced genocide against the Jews, the Poles and the Russians. The Ukrainian nationalism is still threatening because it is a life ideology (by contract to the German Nazism, which is dead).
I am the author of two peace proposals for Korea and for Palestine. They have been published in major newspapers: China Daily and Jerusalem Post.
If I am invited and if you are open to a compromise and peaceful talks, I could also make a peace proposal to end the conflict in Kashmir.
But today we should all be concerned with the situation in Ukraine.
We have now a very dangerous war in Ukraine. It is very dangerous because it can change from a local to a continental conflict or even to WWIII.
At the time of Kaliyuga people are so intellectually and morally degraded, that they can no longer think properly. In this situation God is our last hope. This is why I wrote the Litany for peace in Ukraine -- please see the text below.
Please, if you can, help to bring the Litany to the whole word. It is now in four languages (Polish, English, Russian, Spanish), but we can translate the text to 100 languages, so that all people will get the peace message.

Subject: CHURCH COMMEMORATION FOR NAZIS
A comment in the Catholic Journal The Tablet 23 May 2020
“MEANWHILE, In Bosnia, the Cardinal Archbishop of Sarajevo, Vinko Puljic, has celebrated Mass for the thousands of members of the Ustasa, the Wartime Croatian Nazi collaborators, and civilians, killed by the Partisans in 1945. It was a replacement for the Bleiburg commemorations usually held in Austria.
I do know that the Partisans’ victory meant the killing of whole classes of people. - my Albanian father-in-law, who is not a Christian, recalls seeing priests, as well as property owners and intellectuals , hung in the town squares in Kosovo by the victorious Communists. This Mass, however looks like associating the Church again with a movement which massacred Jews, Serbs and gipsies and was notable even at the time for its barbarity.
In his Mass, Archbishop Puljic remembered those killed in the Ustasa concentration camp at Jasenovac as well as the Bleiburg victims and others, but his observation that “ we owe equal respect to every victim” isn’t what the German bishops would say. Their collective examination of conscience could usefully be replicated in Bosnia and Croatia”.
Melanie McDonagh is senior writer at the London Evening Standard.
Note – Edward Spalton
The Second World War in Yugoslavia was marked by hideous brutality between the different ethnic and political groups. It became British government policy to support the Communists (Partisans), who were considered to be the most effective in fighting the Germans. Royalist Orthodox Christian Serbs (Chetniks) were abandoned and sometimes even attacked by HM and allied forces although they played a notable role ( inter alia) in the rescue of allied aircrew.
One of the most strangely revolting aspects of the extreme wartime atrocities by the Croatian Ustasa was that some senior concentration camp commanders and extermination squad leaders were Catholic clergymen.
The Ustasa government of Croatia had a “policy of thirds” with regard to its Serbian population – to kill one third, to expel one third and to force the remaining third at gunpoint to convert to Catholicism, thus losing their Serbian identity.

Neo-nazis across the world glorify Azov, and whitewashing them in the way the BBC and other mainstream media organizations have should not be taken lightly.
On 15 January 1934, as Europe stood on the precipice of war, British newspaper the Daily Mail printed perhaps its most infamous headline when it declared: “Hurrah for the Blackshirts!”
Proprietor Viscount Rothermere boldly swung his support behind Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists (BUF) as both Hitler and Mussolini rose to power in Germany and Italy respectively.
He saw the nascent fascist movement as a bulwark against the threat of communism both at home and abroad, urging the British public to study closely the Nazi regime in Germany as he accused its opponents of deliberately misrepresenting it.
Rothermere took aim at those who denounced “Nazi atrocities” which he said, “consists of merely a few isolated acts of violence…which have been generalized, multiplied, and exaggerated to give the impression that Nazi rule is a bloodthirsty tyranny.”
Fascism never took hold in Britain in the same way it did elsewhere. There are a number of reasons for this, but it was in no small part due to the role of the Communist Party and the organized working class.
Everywhere Mosley and his thugs raised their heads, they were met with mass opposition, with the Battle of Cable Street in London’s East End a defining moment in breaking the back of the BUF.
The Mail was far from the only media organization to support fascism, which traditionally draws its main source of support from the wealthy elites - including in Britain elements of the Royal Family.
According to Tom Mills, author of The BBC - Myth Of a Public Service - the corporation itself has a less than chequered history, supporting a position of appeasement with Hitler as the war clouds loomed ominously.
This, he says, reflected the dominant opinion among the British elite, with speakers hostile to fascism barred from broadcasting including future Prime Minister Winston Churchill who complained about being “muzzled” by the state broadcaster.
Fast forward some eighty years from Viscount Rothermere’s efforts to downplay the atrocities committed by the Nazis in Germany and we can see the exact same arguments deployed by the BBC, and others, against those decrying the fascist influence in Ukraine.
Last month it broadcast a shocking nine-minute episode of its Outside Source program, which was slated by the conservative Mail on Sunday journalist Peter Hitchens as “bilge… minimizing the importance of neo-Nazis in Ukraine.”
In what can only be described as the BBC’s “Hurrah for the Azov!” moment - a modern-day twist on Rothermere’s infamous headline - presenter Ros Atkins opens by telling us that “multiple false claims” have been made about Nazis in Ukraine.
The nine minutes that followed were a masterclass in fascism denial, a dangerous move that will surely come back to haunt the corporation and leave its already dubious claims of impartiality and objectivity in tatters.
Those that continue to point out that the Azov Battalion - which became so powerful that it was integrated into the Ukrainian armed forces in a bid to tame it in 2015 - are fascists were dismissed by the BBC as Russian propagandists.
Atkins continued his piece to camera insisting that Russia has used Azov as propaganda for years, casually ignoring the countless reports by the BBC itself warning of the serious threat posed by far-right forces in Ukraine in the past eight years.
But the BBC seems incredibly adept at finding neo-Nazis for its news reports, in which they keep popping up in. Around the same time, the Atkins fascism-denial report was broadcast, BBC’s Jeremy Bowen appeared surrounded by soldiers bearing neo-nazi insignia on the flagship Six O’Clock News.
This matters not for Atkins, as he went on to reassure viewers that while a BuzzFeed journalist found nazi and white supremacist insignia and ideas among Azov soldiers he met in January, there was very little evidence such views were prevalent among Azov supporters, explaining how the organization had changed since 2014.
Former Azov leader Andriy Biletsky’s promise to “lead the white races of the world in a final crusade…against Semite-led Untermenschen” was seemingly not enough for the BBC, which conveniently omitted this chilling proclamation from its report.
It did explain that he had left Azov although the BBC did not say that the only reason he did so was that he was elected to the Ukrainian parliament as an MP for the far-right National Corps and that lawmakers are barred from military service.
On his election, Biletsky - known by Azov as Bely Vozhd, or White Ruler - promised however to maintain his career in the armed forces "without titles," something the BBC also decided not to include in its disingenuous report.
The state broadcaster went on to wheel out another of its so-called “experts,” Vitaliy Shevchenko, as it continued to downplay the far-right ideology of Azov. He claimed to have trawled the battalion’s social media accounts and couldn’t find anything espousing messages that would indicate neo-Nazi beliefs. This claim was left unchallenged. But it was not true.
Shevchenko clearly didn’t look too hard for evidence. Just weeks before his claim, the official Twitter account of the Ukrainian National Guard posted video footage of Azov soldiers dipping bullets in pig fat.
“Azov fighters of the National Guard greased the bullets with lard against the Kadyrov orcs,” the post stated. Orcs is a derogatory term for Muslims for whom pork is forbidden. It was deemed by Twitter to have violated its rules about hateful conduct, although the post remained accessible as the platform deemed in the public interest.
“Neo-nazis and the far-right do not play the role in Ukraine that Russia falsely claims. It didn’t in 2014 and it doesn’t now,” Atkins asserted as the BBC fascism-denial piece continued. This conveniently ignores the role such forces played in the post-Maidan coup government, including Svoboda MPs holding the posts of vice prime minister, defense minister, and agricultural minister.
Perhaps he truly believes that the neo-Nazi group has now rebranded itself as New Azov. Perhaps it wasn’t the fascists that were responsible for the mass slaughter of 14,000 mainly Russian speakers in the Donbass in 2014 after all, with the United Nations among those who are part of “Putin’s propaganda machine”?
For a force that according to the BBC doesn’t play the role that Russia - and others - claim it does, then why has Azov Battalion’s leader Major Prokopenko Denys Hennadiyovych been awarded the country’s highest honor, Hero of Ukraine, for the defense of Mariupol?
Another of the oft-repeated claims made by the fascism deniers - and again repeated in the BBC piece - is that the lack of electoral support for the far-right is conclusive evidence that proves they have a lack of support or influence in Ukraine. It highlights a fall in support for the far-right Svoboda party, to prove its point.
Of course, this is duplicitous. The electoral prospects or otherwise of the far-right is not a serious or credible measure of its influence. It is the inability - or unwillingness - of the state to control them that is of concern.
The fact that Azov and other neo-Nazi forces have been integrated into the state should be indication enough. The deployment of the C14 onto the streets of Kiev where they have allegedly taken part in anti-Romanian pogroms alongside the Ukrainian police should also be a cause for alarm.
More worryingly though, despite a personal visit to the area, Zelensky’s call for the fascists to lay down their arms in eastern Ukraine was simply ignored, as seen in video footage showing an exchange between the Ukrainian President and Azov leaders in the country’s east.
Azov fighters - responsible for mass slaughter in the Donbass region - have continued to launch attacks on pro-Russian separatists and civilians in the self-declared republics of Donetsk and Lugansk ever since.
In October 2019, then prime minister, and now member of Zelensky’s Servant of the People party, Oleksiy Honcharuk attended a concert organized by neo-Nazi and Holocaust-denying band Sokyra Peruna just months after coming to power.
He was pictured speaking on stage in front of neo-Nazi insignia, the event organized by Andriy Medvedko, chair of a group linked to another far-right group C14, and a suspect in the murder of journalist Oles Buzina who was shot dead in Kiev in 2015.
If the far-right really holds no sway or influence and is not deemed to be significant by the Kiev government, then why address their supporters and appear with them in public? Would it be acceptable for Boris Johnson to address National Front supporters at a Skrewdriver concert?
Of course not. It would be political suicide, and the BBC would be among the first to condemn it amid calls for his immediate resignation.
AZOV’S INTERNATIONAL EXTREMIST LINKS
Sanitizing neo-Nazis can of course have dangerous and far-reaching consequences. Despite the BBCs protestations, the influence of Azov extends far beyond Ukraine. It has a network of far-right supporters across the world, many of whom are responsible for the most heinous atrocities.
Fascism denial serves to legitimize organizations like Azov. Its integration into the Ukrainian armed forces in 2015 gave it the two things it craved the most, power and access to more sophisticated weapons, a dangerous combination.
This was in part acknowledged by the US Congress which in 2018, under the Trump administration, publicly denounced the Azov Battalion, banning the government from providing any “arms, training, or other assistance” to its fighters because of its white supremacist ideology.
Such a move was a blow to the Azov movement which, according to its head of international outreach Olena Semenyaka, aims to form a coalition of far-right groups across the Western world, with the ultimate aim of taking power throughout Europe.
In Britain, support was built via its wing of the Misanthropic Division (MD), Azov’s front around the world for recruitment and propaganda. It forged links with far-right organizations including National Action, now a proscribed terrorist organization.
It is known the Ukrainian far-right organization also has links to US Nazis. The leader of the Rise Above Movement (RAM), which played a leading role in the Charlottesville Unite the Right demonstration during which counter-protester Heather Heyer was killed after being rammed by a car, described Azov as an inspiration.
It is known that a number of those arrested in connection with violence there had traveled to Ukraine to meet with Azov leaders in 2018.
But by far the most deadly of the attacks carried out by alleged Azov supporters was that on the two Christchurch mosques in New Zealand in March 2019 in which 51 were killed by white supremacist Brenton Harrison Tarrant.
The self-styled Ethno-nationalist spent time in Ukraine in 2015 and planned to move there permanently according to New Zealand’s security services, with the country becoming a haven for the global far-right.
During the attack, the shooter donned a flak jacket bearing the sonnenrad (sunwheel) or black sun: a symbol commonly used by the Azov movement, originally adapted from a mosaic on the floor of the SS Generals' Hall.
It is known that the sickening manifesto written by Tarrant and posted on social media to justify his killing spree has been translated into Ukrainian and shared among far-right groups there. Men in military fatigues have been pictured holding copies of the Ukrainian translation of the manifesto while giving Hitler salutes.
Azov leaders have previously described Russian intervention in Ukraine as “a window of opportunity” to further its own far-right global agenda with the deputy leader of the National Corps Mykola Kravchenko urging it “not to waste this unique historical chance” in 2018.
But in case the threat is not clear enough, the target of Azov is not just Russia, but also what it describes as the liberal West.
“We say that we want to return something, reconquer it. We talk about Eastern Europe. Ukraine is now undergoing a revolution and can become the vanguard of this Reconquista.
“From this space, it will expand to Western Europe, and then of course the whole world. We can also speak about the World Conservative Revolution,” Semenyaka explained in 2015.
Worryingly, former FBI agent Ali Soufan, who studies Azov, claimed in January 2021 that more than 17,000 foreign fighters had traveled to Ukraine over the previous six years from 50 countries.
The threat Azov poses should not be underestimated.
Last year a Time Magazine report found that “apart from offering a place for foreign radicals to study the tricks and tools of war, the Azov movement, through its online propaganda, has fueled a global ideology of hate that now inspires more terrorist attacks in the US than Islamic extremism does and is a growing threat throughout the Western world.”
Neo-nazis across the world glorify Azov, and whitewashing them in the way the BBC and other mainstream media organizations have should not be taken lightly.
Just this week German police launched a major operation against neo-Nazi groups across the country, some with links to Azov, while in France there is a very real threat that Marine Le Pen could be elected president having polished her public image.
SS WAFFEN AND BANDERA CELEBRATIONS
Another of the arguments of the Nazi deniers -and again deployed by the BBC - is that Zelensky is Jewish. As the BBC dutifully tells us, the Ukrainian president lost members of his own family in the Holocaust. A tragedy undoubtedly, but cynically wielded as a PR shield as unquestionable proof that fascism doesn’t exist in Ukraine.
Yet annual marches honoring the Waffen SS take place in Lviv and a similar march by 300 Waffen SS supporters took place in Kiev in April 2020. It is also now illegal to criticize former wartime fascist leader Stepan Bandera, who sent thousands of Ukrainian Jews to their deaths in the Holocaust.
An official state celebration is held to mark his birthday on January 1 each year, with fascists and neo-Nazis taking to the streets in chilling torchlit processions while in 2016 a major road in Kiev was renamed after the Nazi collaborator.
Bandera’s Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists portrayed Russians, Poles, Hungarians, and Jews — most of the minorities in western Ukraine — as aliens and encouraged locals to “destroy” Poles and Jews. Yet Mayor Vitaly Klitschko led the city’s appeal against a 2019 ruling overturning the name change.
Last year Jewish groups warned of “open anti-semitism” in Ukraine after a high-ranking police official demanded a list of all Jews in the western city of Kolomyya as part of investigations into organized crime.
“Please provide us the following information regarding the Orthodox Jewish religious community of Kolomyya, namely: The organization’s charter; list of members of the Jewish religious community, with the indication of data, mobile phones and their places of residence,” a letter signed by police chief Myhaylo Bank stated.
A 23-page document published by the United Jewish Community of Ukraine detailed a shocking rise in anti-semitic attacks led by far-right nationalist groups and politicians on Jewish people in the country in 2021.
AZOV - THE NEW “MODERATE REBELS”
Efforts to rebrand Azov as “misunderstood nationalists” have reached a fever pitch, with the BBC fascism-denial report followed soon after by articles in The Times - Britain’s newspaper of record -The Financial Times, CNN, and others who were seemingly only yesterday saying the opposite.
Azov has in effect become the new moderate rebel. Yet while the attempts to muster public support for the myriad of jihadist groups fighting to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria failed, it seems to have been more successful in the case of Ukraine.
While arms and cash were provided surreptitiously to the Islamists via what journalist Seymour Hersh described as ratlines, the flow of weapons into the arms of Ukrainian neo-Nazis has been carried out much more openly.
British forces are known to have trained Azov fighters and it was recently revealed that the government has been sending arms to the fascist militia too. This was confirmed in a recent parliamentary question answered by defense minister James Heappey who said it had sent Starstreak anti-aircraft weapons to the Ukrainian military.
“Under the current circumstances, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense is likely to have operational command of the National Guard, which also includes the Azov battalion,” Heappey said in a statement.
What the BBC says matters. It has a global audience of around 308 million and is used by most people in Britain for one reason or another. This year it celebrates its 100th birthday and faces many new challenges.
According to Mills around four out of five people in Britain rely on the corporation for news. It plays a major role in shaping public opinion. This is why the state and its intelligence services pay careful attention to the BBC and have historically manipulated its output.
The BBC helped in no small part to boost fascism-denial in Ukraine among the British public. The Atkins report should go down in history alongside Rothermere’s Hurrah for the Blackshirts as one of the most shameful pieces of journalism in British history.
The modus operandi of the BBC echoes that of the British Establishment, which has no qualms in supporting fascist and authoritarian regimes across the world when they act in its interests.
While Rothermere saw the BUF and Hitler’s Germany as a bulwark against Communism, the BBC and British Establishment sees Azov as its proxies on the frontline against Russia and China in defense of a US-dominated unipolar world.
The BBC position has also been embraced by liberals to the point where any slight deviation from the accepted narrative, including calling for an end to persecution and the release of jailed Ukrainian communists, is branded “pro-Putin propaganda.”
Shrill denunciations are accompanied by a refusal to countenance any criticism of Nato - doing so can lead to expulsion from the Labour Party - while some of the left organizations that once-upon-a-time used to fight fascism are now appeasing it.
Those that dare to go against the manufactured consensus find themselves treated as pariahs.
Former Labour and Respect MP George Galloway has been subjected to calls for him to be interred in the Tower of London as a traitor while his Twitter account has been erroneously labeled “Russian state-affiliated media.” Scott Ritter, a former UN weapons inspector, has been blocked by the social media giant for questioning the narrative on the massacre in Bucha.
Our job as journalists is however to question everything, especially in a time of war, not to simply act as stenographers for power. We shine a light into dark places in our quest for the truth.
The shutting down of discussion or any attempt to analyze or understand how the conflict in Ukraine started is dangerous and a major barrier to peace. If you don’t know how a war started, then you have no hope whatsoever of ending it.
Calling out the BBC is not the same as saying every Ukrainian is a fascist, as the detractors and deniers will undoubtedly suggest, as they have before. It is to highlight the obvious dangers of legitimizing a dangerous movement that by its own admission seeks world domination. The BBC should play no role in whitewashing fascism and must be held to account by the government and those that fund it, the British public.

Europe deals a double blow to Russia.
What will come in response?
April 7, 2022
It is not at all surprising that the Anglo-Saxons - the US and Great Britain - want the war in Ukraine to go on as long as possible: they were initially interested in giving Russia a "second Afghanistan", preventing us from pulling Ukraine out of the Western chain, or at least making us pay the maximum price for doing so. Along the way, they are also solving a second problem - they are increasing their influence on Europe, geopolitically (by military and economic measures, including through the supply of American gas), putting the Old World in an even more dependent position. Europe in this situation turns out to be a victim - not of the mythical Russian threat, but of a very specifically Anglo-Saxon game.
If this simple combination is understood by the whole world - from the Chinese, far from Europe, to the Arabs, then it would seem that the EU itself should at least be tormented by vague doubts about this. That is, the European Union should be most interested in the speedy end of hostilities in Ukraine in order to deprive the Anglo-Saxons of a reason to increase information attacks on Russian energy supplies to the EU and thereby ease the tension on the Atlantic leash.
It is all the more surprising that the leaders of Europe are increasingly betting on prolonging hostilities, not realizing where this will lead to in the end.
Tomorrow, EU leaders will arrive in Kyiv - the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell. They will come to support Ukraine in the war with Russia, and support it not morally, but materially, that is, with the supply of weapons. Although the European Union says they are trying to avoid a direct conflict with Russia, they constantly emphasize that they do not want Ukraine to be defeated and therefore will increase the supply of weapons to Kiev. But what is the point of these deliveries? Does Brussels believe that Russia will stop the operation? Are they counting on a Ukrainian victory? Obviously, when the States and Britain want the the military conflict to last as long as possible, this is to their benefit.
Josep Borrell on Wednesday explained to the European Parliament that the EU is not indifferent to the outcome of the conflict and therefore will seek to resolve the crisis "as soon as possible, but not at any cost":
"Opinions were expressed that the best way to end the conflict as soon as possible would be to stop the supply of weapons to Ukraine, but when the hostilities are over, what will be the result? If everything ends in a destroyed and defeated country with millions of refugees and thousands of dead, then this is not what we want "Therefore, we must continue to arm Ukraine. We need to applaud less and help more. Ukrainians expect new arms supplies from us, and we’re complying. <...> We must continue to arm Ukraine without entering into an escalation that involves more and more countries "These kinds of conflicts are won by weapons and economic weakening of the enemy."
That is, the European Union, in fact, openly calls itself a party to the conflict, because it first declared an all-out economic war on Russia, and now it wants to increase arms supplies to Ukraine. At the same time, Borrell says that "we are in a difficult balancing situation of balance":
"We want to help Ukraine, but we don't want to get involved in the war. The EU is not a military alliance, but I think we should help Ukraine. We are doing everything we can, but without crossing red lines so that the conflict does not spread."
NATO will not become a party to the conflict in Ukraine, said Scholz
Naturally, neither the EU nor Russia wants a direct military conflict, because it will be a war between Russia and NATO, that is, opponents with nuclear weapons. But the EU does not consider it shameful to support Ukraine - it's just a trifle, just weapons.
It is clear that no European supplies will stop the progress of the Russian military operation. Firstly, because the Europeans do not have the opportunity to deliver heavy equipment and aircraft to the location of the Ukrainian army, where the main battles are taking place, that is, in the Donbass. Secondly, the range of supplies itself is quite limited - for example, the Bundeswehr warehouses are not endless, so we are talking about the purchase of weapons specifically for Ukraine.
And although it will still not be possible to turn the tide of hostilities, European supplies can prolong the agony of the Ukrainian army, prolonging its resistance. Russia will have to expend more effort and money to destroy Western aid to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but Moscow will not stop halfway. That is, the goal of Russia is clear - but the goals of the EU raise questions.
Borrell says "it is necessary to ensure that Ukraine enters negotiations with Russia from a position of strength." That is, we will figure things out, preserving, among other things, a strong army. Thus, the EU believes that Russia can still be forced to abandon even the demilitarization of Ukraine? Amazing myopia.
If the Europeans do not believe in this, then, by supplying weapons, they pursue the same goal as the Anglo-Saxons: simply dragging out the hostilities as long as possible. But then we need to return to the main - for the Europeans - issue. And why does Europe need a long war on its eastern borders?
Is that good for it? No.
Does it make it stronger? No, it weakens it in every way.
Does it increase its dependence on external forces? Yes, definitely - and everyone knows who these external forces are.
The longer the fighting in Ukraine goes on, the more the European Union will turn into an appendage of NATO. That is, the Atlantic project [NATO] will completely dominate the project of continental Europe [EU], and the German-French ambitions to build a united Europe can be thrown into the dustbin of history.
In any case, Russia will turn Ukraine towards itself - without losing, but at the same time increasing its weight in the world. Europe will not only not keep Ukraine in its sphere of influence, but will also bring its future to the altar of Anglo-Saxon ambitions. Moreover, this sacrifice will not be appreciated by the Anglo-Saxons, who already consider the Europeans to be their satellites. Moreover, this sacrifice will not help the Anglo-Saxons to hang onto their collapsing global project.
That is, Europe will simply lose - first plans for the development of Ukraine (and these plan existed – though they were not everyone’s plans) and all ties with Russia, and then the current standard of living, economic independence and geopolitical ambitions. And it can no longer even dream of strategic autonomy. And this is just the beginning – there’s more to come. After all, the euro has already been discredited (after the freezing of Russian assets), and ties with China will be gradually destroyed by the Anglo-Saxons (Borrell admitted that the recent summit with China was a "dialogue of the deaf" and "we didn’t agree on anything"). What will remain of the EU's weight in the world?
And what will happen to it, to the European Union — who will cement it in the conditions of constant confrontation with Russia and the Cold War with China? Moreover, with the Anglo-Saxon noose on the European energy sector - in the context of the economic crisis and the decline in the export potential of the main European economies ... [Europe had already acquiesced to US ambitions under Trump, when he demanded they slap sanctions on companies – their own companies, mind you! – involved in the laying of the Nord Strom 2 pipeline, and they complied, suicidally, with the order And that was long before the Russian special op].
These are the questions that urgently need to be answered by the leadership of the European Union at a time when it is betting on prolonging the war in Ukraine, thinking that this is hurting Russia. And not noticing that by doing so the EU is tightening the rope around its own neck.
Zelensky addresses Greeks accompanies by Neo-Nazis
US occupation forces kidnap civilians
Anti-Russian sanctions will cause inflation
Recently, the sly Zelensky regime floated a story about the “Russians” slaughtering whole families. With all the bad press swirling around the Russians, there is nearly zero chance that happened.
But here is a plausible story about what Nazis are doing in Ukraine.
Translation with my notes in red font and [in brackets]
An American journalist spoke about the goals of Kiev's publication of photos and videos from Bucha
The military of Ukraine for three days was preparing the production of a massacre in Bucha
04 April 2022
American journalist Michael Tracy, well-known in the United States, denied the accusations of the Ukrainian authorities against the Russian Federation for the so-called "Bucha massacre." He stated that the RF Armed Forces did not make any sense to “crack down on the civilian population” by leaving the city while knowing that the Ukrainian military would soon enter it.
According to Tracy, the agreement on the withdrawal of troops was reached during negotiations between the Ukrainian and Russian delegations, so the military knew very well that they would leave the city.
The journalist also recalled that Kyiv, from the very beginning of the Russian special operation, made attempts to draw the United States and NATO into the conflict. The fake invented by Ukrainian propagandists about the “brutal massacre of the inhabitants of Bucha” has the same goal. If Washington continues to believe everything that the Ukrainian media publishes, then it will not even notice how it will be drawn into the conflict in Ukraine, Tracy believes.
Ex-fighter of “Aidar” spoke about the executions of civilians in Rubizhne
April 2, 2022
Former militant of the nationalist battalion "Aidar" (an extremist organization banned in Russia) Denis Nuryga spoke about the atrocities of neo-Nazis in the Donbass. He stated that the Armed Forces of Ukraine shoot everyone in a row and did not spare even the mother-in-law of his best friend.
According to the former militant, the Aidar battalion shoots members of the civilian population who want to leave for Russia from the city of Rubezhnoye. Neo-Nazis do not allow them to evacuate, shoot at people, and also destroy entire columns, not releasing them into the Russian Federation.
Recall that the second phase of the military special operation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation began in the Donbass. At this stage, Russian troops and the People's Militia of the DPR and LPR focused on encircling a large group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Kramatorsk and Slavyansk. In addition, the battles for Rubizhne continue and the cleansing of Mariupol is nearing completion.
Nearly 300 Ukrainian Marines Surrendered to Russian Military
Nearly 300 Ukrainian Marines Surrendered to Russian Military
267 marines from the 503rd battalion of the Naval Forces of Ukraine decided to capitulate in the encircled Mariupol, throwing down their weapons and surrendering to the Russian military and units of the DPR. The corresponding video frames were published from information resources.
On the video footage presented, you can see how a huge column of marines with their hands raised leaves their hiding places and capitulates to the vastly superior forces of the DPR and the RF Armed Forces.
It is known that after the surrender, a corresponding conversation was held with them. At the same time, unlike the Ukrainian security forces and nationalists, no violence was used against the Ukrainian servicemen who surrendered.
According to some information, in the near future an interview with the surrendered Ukrainian marines is expected, in which they will talk about the current situation in Mariupol and the mood among the Ukrainian security forces and nationalists who still remain in the besieged city.

The few brave souls who dared to mention that there are Nazis in Ukraine were slapped down with the reminder the president Zelensky is Jewish so that’s “impossible.” Well, you’d think so, wouldn’t you?
That is the kind of argument that the Obama supporters used when it was reported that the black slave trade sprang up after Obama’s attack on Libya that got Ghaddafi killed and turned Libya into a hotbed of terrorism and chaos.
Preposterous, they say. Obama-backed rebels could NOT be instituting black slavery in Libya because Obama is black. Right?
But strange as it seems, Biden-backed Zelensky is peacefully coexisting with Nazis and the Obama-backed rebels in Libya have set up black slave trade.
Yes, folks, US politics is as hypocritical as it gets and Putin’s description of America as the Empire of Lies is spot on.
Black slavery sprang up in Libya after the first black president “liberated” the country:
The site Black Agenda Report states:
If the news that black Libyans and black migrants from sub-Saharan Africa were being sold as slaves in Libya was a surprise to you, then you were not reading Black Agenda Report during the 2011-2012 NATO intervention in that country. We covered it. Almost everybody refused to question US foreign policy in Africa during the reign of our first black president. Many US news outlets, many otherwise reasonable people with access to foreign news, and countless others around the world averted their eyes and their ears to the anguish of hunted, lynched and massacred black Africans in Benghazi, in Tripoli, in Sirte and Bani Walid. But as the US Navy and US Air Force unleashed thousands of tons of bombs and missiles on innocent civilians and the military forces of the Libyan government, without which Uncle Sam’s and Barack Obama’s racist rebels could never have toppled Muammar Ghadaffi, you heard and read about it each week in Black Agenda Report.
Likewise, Zelensky -- backed by gung-ho BLM defender Joe Biden -- has been playing footsies with the racist Nazis for a long time now.
Max Blumenthal states:
With appeals for disengagement from the frontlines firmly rejected, Zelensky melted down on camera. “I’m the president of this country. I’m 41 years old. I’m not a loser. I came to you and told you: remove the weapons,” Zelensky implored the fighters.
Once video of the stormy confrontation spread across Ukrainian social media channels, Zelensky became the target of an angry backlash.
Andriy Biletsky, the proudly fascist Azov Battalion leader who once pledged President to “lead the white races of the world in a final crusade…against Semite-led Untermenschen,” vowed to bring thousands of fighters to Zolote if Zelensky pressed any further. Meanwhile, a parliamentarian from the party of former Ukrainian Petro Poroshenko openly fantasized about Zelensky being blown to bits by a militant’s grenade.
Though Zelensky achieved a minor disengagement, the neo-Nazi paramilitaries escalated their “No Capitulation” campaign. And within months, fighting began to heat up again in Zolote, sparking a new cycle of violations of the Minsk Agreement.
Anyone who has frequented Patrick Lancaster’s site and listened to eye witnesses – or at least read the subtitles – knows that the ultranationalists were committing genocide on the civilians in Donbas in Zelensky's watch.
Since then, Zelensky never again stood up to the Nazis.
I know that if I were in Zelensky’s shoes, I would have packed up my belongings, gathered my family together and taken the first plane to Moscow. And from there I would have shouted from the rooftops the story of how the Nazis had taken over Ukraine.
Then I would not have felt ashamed to have betrayed my fellow Ukrainians and my fellow Jews.
But for Zelensky, being president was more important than doing the right thing. In fact, does he even have any sense of what the right thing is?
And furthermore, do Americans and other Westerners know the difference between right and wrong?
It looks as if most of them have chosen to cave just as Zelensky has.
And so today we are flirting with WW III, a nuclear war at that, because we have mostly just let the msm do our thinking for us. Such a wishy-washy public is not suitable for democracy.
Certainly, if the US Establishment were guided by any sort of moral standards at all, it would have stopped supporting the Kiev regime as soon as it became obvious that the Nazis – defeated by the West and Russia in the 40s – were a major factor in the political power in Kiev.
Instead, most legislators and other officials in Washington, including the White House, are lionizing empty-suit Zelensky, and even celebrating him as a hero, and are mouthing in unison the hollow argument that Zelensky is Jewish and he is therefore incapable of collaborating with Nazis.
But you know, once a person is known to have committed a crime (collaborating with Nazis is a heinous crime), it is too late to find an alibi. Don’t you think?
And this state of affairs in Ukraine is precisely why Putin decided to enter Ukraine for the purpose of denazification.
Yet, the majority of our Western leaders in politics and msm insist that there are no Nazis in Ukraine or if there are, they have little to no influence on politics or the military.
And Westerners being the jelly fish they are, almost no one will stand up for what is right.
We are accomplices to a crime that may eventually degrade into a war that could spell the end of civilization or even life on earth.

In the headquarters of the "Right Sector"* a laptop was found with intelligence data and NATO markings
Pushilin: in the headquarters of the "Right Sector"* a laptop was found with intelligence and NATO markings

Laptop with NATO marking found at the headquarters of the Right Sector* - RIA Novosti, 1920, March 6, 2022
DONETSK, March 6 - RIA Novosti. In one of the headquarters of the "Right Sector"*, a laptop was found with intelligence data, which has a licensed NATO registry number, said the head of the DPR, Denis Pushilin.
[The Right Sector, or Pravy Sektor Пра́вийсе́ктор in Ukrainian, is a far right radical group including some Neo-nazis but also some more-moderates. It is considered extremist in Russia]
"The militants of the national battalions have a special level of security clearance from the North Atlantic Alliance. This laptop contains a detailed map of the area with the location of our units," he said at a press conference. [By “our units,” Pushilin means the Russian-mother-tongue Donetsk People’s Republic militants]
According to him, this is direct evidence that the NATO alliance helped the nationalists in Ukraine.
"NATO, including its Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, has repeatedly argued that there are no forces of the North Atlantic Alliance on the territory of Ukraine, and here you have direct evidence that NATO was on the side of the Ukrainian regime," the head of the DPR said.
"According to our intelligence and the testimony of prisoners, the offensive operation was supposed to begin on March 8 of this year. The facts indicate that the invasion was planned simultaneously both on the territory of the Donbass republics and on the territory of the Russian Federation - in Crimea," he said. [It would have been suicide for these Ukrainian militias to invade Crimea, which bristles with all kinds of the latest Russian weapons, including the TOS thermobaric weapons that can kill hundreds of the enemy with a single volley]
Pushilin, the head of the DPR showed a map of the Crimea with the positions of the troops marked on it.
On February 21, Vladimir Putin, in response to requests from the Donbass republics and after an appeal by State Duma deputies, signed decrees recognizing the sovereignty of the LPR [Lugansk People’s Republic]and DPR. Early on the morning of February 24, Russia launched a military special operation to demilitarize Ukraine. According to Putin, it is also necessary to carry out the denazification of Ukraine, to bring to justice all war criminals responsible for "bloody crimes against civilians" in Donbass.
According to the Ministry of Defense, the Armed Forces strike only at the military infrastructure and Ukrainian troops ̶ nothing threatens the civilian population. With the support of the Russian army, the DPR and LPR groups are developing an offensive, there are losses on all sides.

Yes, Virginia, there really ARE Nazis in Ukraine – and they’re in charge
Despite the overwhelming evidence that dangerous Neo-Nazis not only exist in Ukraine but have infiltrated its power structure, Westerners have allowed themselves to believe the lies emanating from the US foreign policy community and fully supported by the warmongers in the news media of the US-led West, where gullible people have long equated the government with God and patriotism with the sacraments.
But they are more than naïve. They are part of the criminal and Satanic cult of militarism and US hegemony that threatens the world with destruction, now more than ever in this Biden regime that has brought the world closer to nuclear holocaust than any other before it.
It is not enough to say this is mistaken or an error. It is pure unadulterated criminality that, in a just world, would be tried in a Nuremberg-type tribunal and the perpetrators punished for murder.
The Russian Federation has already warned that the Ukrainian murderers will be found and brought to trial. But will it stop there?
Russia knows that head of the snake is in Washington, DC.
To support this campaign of lies is criminal as well, and the true believers who support it are no less guilty and deserving of punishment.
In fact, most Western churches, both Protestant and Catholic, are the biggest supporters of this cult, hiding behind the name of the peacemaker Jesus to lend an aura of respectability to the slaughter of innocents and the slandering of Russia, the only world power directly confronting the evil.
To be clear, Jesus’ teachings have nothing to do with these crimes and if the grassroots in the US and Europe were guided by these teachings, none of these horrific events in Ukraine would be happening. The war was instigated in a country falsely and cynically called “Christian” America that has long gone over to the dark side.
Thus, the “Land of the Free,” which fought the Nazis in the past, has made an about-face and is now wholeheartedly supporting the inheritors of Hitler’s foul ideology – nationalist fighters in Ukraine enjoying the support of the entire US-led West, including lethal arms with which to massacre civilians, and a despicable barrage of lies in their msm and widespread censorship, ridicule and ostracization of anyone daring to challenge the lies.
And let’s make no mistake about it: These lies in support of unjust US wars are not an outlier. They have been ongoing for at least a century and a half, as shown here:
Specifically, we are inundated with lies that are being used to make the Western public support killer sanctions on Russia for its role in fighting the Nazis in and around Donbass, including:
1—The Ukrainian Nazis don’t exist,
2—Though some Nazis may exist in Ukraine, they have no power and don’t influence the regime of president Zelinsky
3—Since Zelinsky is Jewish, it is absurd to accuse him of collaborating with the Nazis.
4—Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is motivated by personal ambitions, not by a desire to protect the Russians in Donbass.
5—The Donbass citizens were never attacked by the Ukraine regime and its Nazi militias.
All of these lies and more are roundly debunked by the materials linked below.
Just now I have received from our friend Leo Semashko an alert to an article in the Grey Zone by Max Blumenthal. Leo has provided us with a write-up on this article and a tribute to investigative journalist Blumenthal at https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=1051).

I also want to alert you to two must-view videos that debunk the lies about the Ukrainian Nazis. Please set aside a time to view them.

Stunning news! Kiev attacks Azov Batallion HQ -- corroborates my theory: Kiev can NOT control the Nazis
The news report shown below in translation corroborates my theory that Ukrainian president Zelensky has little to no control over the nationalist [Nazi-sympathizing] militias.
I had said that to this group some time ago based on certain contradictions between the genocidal attacks in Donbass and Zelensky’s insistence that Kiev had never ordered attacks on Donbass citizens.
A peace group I belong to sent messages insisting that Zelensky, because he is Jewish, could never have supported Neo-Nazis.
I had already commented that Zelensky certainly deep down has no sympathy for Nazi ideology but that:
1—He is essentially a puppet of Washington and must obey his keepers, and
2—He is unable to control the actions of the nationalist militias, who are led primarily by their radical ideology and only reluctantly answer to the Kiev command.
So far I have not read any commentaries, either in Russian or in English, supporting my theory. But this report in the following of the Ukrainian military attacking the headquarters of the nationalists in Mariupol speaks volumes and marks a turning point.
I suspect these clashes between Kiev and the nationalist militias in the field have been going on for a long time.
Something else that made me suspect such clashes was the fact that the very strong warnings of the Russians seemed to have no effect on the attacks on Russian-speaking Donbass, which instead of abating, actually got worse after the Russians sent their troops into Ukraine. Any sane leaders would have stopped the attacks after receiving the Russian warnings, realizing that Russia could retaliate at any time and attack the offenders.
And at this time, Zelensky insisted again that he did not order such attacks.
He had completely lost control. Or more likely, he never had control over the nationalists. And only they were crazy enough to flout the Russian warnings. Which is not to say that the US was any less insane because their total refusal to accept any of the Russian peace proposals drove the world closer to a nuclear holocaust. They willingly took us all to the brink in order to sanction Russia -- a war crime in my book, and not a first for Biden.
On the other hand, it is not impossible that US leaders had confidentially warned Zelensky to stop the genocide but that he was helpless to stop the attacks.
I am certain that the command to launch missiles at the Azov command HQ would never have been issued had it not been for the presence of the Russians, who made the Kiev-loyal regular troop commanders realize they had better compromise with the Russians, who are clearly winning the war and are planning to hold Nuremberg-type tribunals after they mop up. Yes, better cooperate.
I think this also explains why so many civilians are apparently suffering attacks. It makes no sense for the Russians, who are already pariahs (unjustly) in the West, to attack civilians. And indeed Russia denies any attacks on civilians. I am convinced that most or all of the harm to civilians was caused by the nationalists (Nazi sympathizers) in an effort to plant a false flag. There have been reports of nationalists killing and terrorizing civilians for sympathizing with the Russians or failing to fall in line behind the Neo-Nazis.
That’s how I see things now in view of this stunning new report, which I am going to assign to the Good News department.
