Anyone seen this on major news-channels - not at all in line with #masshysteria engineered by the global #deepstate? BIG kudos to @luigidimaio and Mario #Draghi @Palazzo_Chigi for coming up with this plan to end #UkraineRussiaWar - throwing down a gauntlet to the #deepstate. ...
... and they will have to craft an "alliance of the sane", so started with @antonioguterres and canvassing #G7 - knowing that a lot of "allied sanity" is needed against the war-mongers in #Ukraine, here @Podolyak_M speaking for the #deepstate ...…
... and, finally, to give deserved credit: My attention was drawn to this initiative by this interesting interview on status of negotiations in @truthout, quite interesting otherwise, too - though nothing really new.…

Zelensky’s address to the Russians: “I want every mother of every Russian soldier to see the bodies of those who have been killed in Bucha, in Irpin, in Hostomel. What did they do? Why were they murdered? 1/5…
What did the man riding his bike on the road do? Why were ordinary citizens questioned and tortured to death in an ordinary peaceful city? Why were women strangled after their earrings were ripped out of their ears?…
How could women be raped and murdered in front of their children? Their bodies tortured even after their deaths? Why did tanks crush the corpses of people? What did the Ukrainian city of Bucha do to your Russia? How did this become possible?"

First let's have a look at the UK govt's view of the situation today. Ukraine continues to make progress towards breaking the siege of #Chernihiv.

Sometimes dark humour is the only way to cope when your neighbour has launches a totally unprovoked war on you...

Did they or didn't they?
#Russian border town of #Belgorod got hit again with a fire at an oil depot.

Russia blames Ukraine, which has so far refused to admit the strike.

There is certainly no justification for this abomination of a @guardian article on the #ukrianerussiawar

No wonder the "west" is going apeshit with censorship.
"Journalism" like his literally puts the entire world at risk

Some counterpoints follow
Yes there was a western backed coup in #Ukrain in 2014.

The power exerted by Nazis in #Ukriane is not reflected in dismal electoral performance. Only 3 months ago Ukriane stood alone at the UN with the US voting down a resolution glorifying Nazis

The #US administration is asking Congress to approve $3.5 bn to face the Ukrainian humanitarian crisis and $3 bn to support #Ukrain MoD.

It was much cheaper to offer a written guarantee that NATO won't deploy missiles/forces in Ukraine & spend this money on the American people.
Day 3 of war on #Ukraine has started with violent explosions north of the capital #Kyiv and in other parts of the country on the eastern, southern and northern fronts.
The objective seems to put pressure on the Ukranian government to abandon the capital along with the President.
The #US administration shall not impose sanctions on oil import from #Russia.
Why? The United States imported more gasoline and other refined petroleum products from Russia than any other country in the world.

I will be explaining the #Russia-#Ukrain issue to you in simple and plain language, such that even your grandmother can understand

#WorldWarIII #RussiaUkraineConflict #Russia #Ukraine #NATO
Ukraine used to be part of soviet republic, (in other words) it was part of Russia back when Russia was still the USSR. In the 90s the USSR splited up and Ukraine essentially became an independent state.
Russia has been trying to take two regions in eastern Ukraine where they share a border: Donetsk and Luhansk. Russia took a peninsula in southern ukraine called Crimea in around 2014. since late 2021 and early 2022 Russia has been preparing for an invasion of ukraine.

"Asked about Putin’s statements, he drew a parallel with those of the #Ukrain President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s government in Kyiv: “I’m a simple man. They decide what do on their own. Why would they want to bother with us?” he said."…
"Just a couple of hours before Russia’s president moved to redraw Ukraine’s borders again, artillery shells blew out the upstairs windows of Maria Artyomova’s home, ripped a hole in the roof of a two-story building housing a grocery and small apartments --...
... and killed her neighbor, Roman, as he worked in a tin-roof shed 20 meters from her front gate."

New #Poll: "34% of Americans Can Find Ukraine on a Map. They’re More Likely to Support an Aggressive Posture Against Russia."

28 percent of Americans "were able to identify Iran on a map roughly two years ago in the wake of a U.S. strike on the Islamic Republic’s most powerful commander. Nearly 3 in 4 voters were able to find Russia on the map."…
"About three quarters of U.S. voters said they had heard at least some news about the crisis. That’s about the same number of voters who could correctly place Russia on a map, and far more than the 1 in 3 who could identify Ukraine."

The Syrian Army is preparing a large offensive and Russia is very angry.

Dangerous combination in the next 24 hours.

Why was Cindy McCain going to #Ukraine for their elections in 2019? And why is David Kramer, who spread the false dodgy dossier around Washington, a board member? Why are Lindsey Graham, Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, Kelly Ayotte, & Lt. General H.R. McMasters members?
Obama & McCain were behind #Ukrain coup. Proof is in the pictures. Here is Asst Sec State Victoria Nuland in Kiev handing out cookies. Note the screen showing McCain. And here is McCain with Svoboda Party leader Oleh Tyahnybok on right. See the other picture of Tyahnybok.
These are the people Obama, Biden, and McCain put in power in #Ukraine.

They recruited Neo-Nazis from Brazil.…
