WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

To understand what happened in Ukraine there is a primary fact you need to know.

During WWII many Ukrainians from the west of the country joined the Nazis against Russia.

The reason was hatred of Russia plus desire for an independent Ukrainian state.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

Why is the assistance Ukrainians gave the Nazis relevant today?

Because fathers back from the war told their sons Hitler was good for Ukraine. They had sons of their own & they continued the myth till now.

They hate Russians & all who respect Russia.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

Ukraine has loyalties that are split down the middle.

The population in eastern Ukraine in general respect Russia & especially the fact that Russia defeated the Nazis in WWII.

They live very near the Russian border & have good relations with Russia.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

With the backdrop of a quite large number in western Ukraine hating those in eastern Ukraine in mind (they derogatorily call them 'Moskals') we come to the Maidan riots of winter 2013/2014.

A variety of people were involved, some good... some very bad.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

On Maidan there were initially many peaceful protestors who desired a better life & saw the EU as their best chance.

Later came very different groups, trained militias, jailbirds, ex-IDF Israelis & a great many extremists intent on violent revolution.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

The norms of democracy in Ukraine were subverted on Maidan.

The president was forced to flee & US-anointed politicians took over the government.

What was eastern Ukraine to make of this considering all that had been suffered under the Nazis in WWII?
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

With democracy overturned on Maidan the rights of the people in eastern Ukraine had been totally undermined..

No matter what anyone thinks of the result this is clear.

No one in eastern Ukraine could ever again be sure their vote counted for anything.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

The people of eastern Ukraine consistently voted for people who reflected their pro-Russian views. You can see this graphically represented below.

Now they were to potentially lose their rights, culture & language to the EU & USA.

What should they do?
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

It is not as if this was going to be a temporary situation.

This was forever.

Their pro-Russian culture was going to be under threat from then on.

And the people of eastern Ukraine knew well the kind of Russia-hating people they were dealing with.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

Instead of accepting their fate, the end of the Russian language in Ukraine & the dismembering of all memorials to Russian heroes of the past... they rose up to defend their lives, their culture, their language & their heritage.

They felt compelled to.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

The deaths of approximately 13,000 Ukrainians, the majority civilians from eastern Ukraine was as a result of the new regime in Ukraine sending troops, armed extremist militants & neo-Nazis to reign down mortar fire on the regions of Donetsk & Lugansk.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

The fact of ever-increasing violence against the civilian population of eastern Ukraine is something you will never hear about from the Ukrainian regime or western mass media.

It is an inconvenient fact totally erased from history by the @BBC & others.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

You will never, ever hear of the wishes of those from eastern Ukraine, of their desperate struggle to save their pro-Russian culture & heritage, to save the lives of themselves & their children from extremists, ultra-nationalists, militias & neo-Nazis.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

War is what has been happening in Ukraine since Spring 2014 & continues to this day.

The people of eastern Ukraine are defending their lives, culture, heritage & language from a Ukrainian regime constantly attempting to bombard them into submission.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

We began reporting on events in Ukraine in mid-2014 & became aware of the totally one-sided story portrayed by the @BBC & others.

There was blatant bias & lack of any attempt to report the war crimes of Kiev.

This was observed for four entire years.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

Since the start of the Ukraine crisis many have come to see how the prejudice shown there against those in eastern Ukraine is mirrored in a great number of other issues today.

Western MSM on a daily basis creates fake news & erases facts from history.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

What is happening in Ukraine is happening to Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua & Bolivia.

Lies & one-sided reporting (propaganda) are order of the day.

All in the context of the West’s struggle to maintain economic & political hegemony.
WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

Ukraine is one piece in the plan of the USA formulated post 9/11 to gain full spectrum dominance.

We see the same game plan right also in Hong Kong.

All those who treasure freedom should join to resist so what happened in Ukraine is never seen again.

WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

We returned from Ukraine after a week in Lviv today. There was good news.

A large scale prisoner exchange is occurring right now.

This bodes well for the future. Hopefully a new page can now be turned.

POST SCRIPT

WHAT HAPPENED IN UKRAINE?

We found the people of Ukraine as everywhere, mostly very fine.

But there still exists much anti-Putin nationalism it must be said.

But.. we must all hope a gradual warming of relations between Ukraine & Russian can now be attained.
