MUST WATCH: American on the ground in Kiev reports rapes, murders, and looting after the government hands out military weapons to criminals.

"The Zelensky regime has gone insane."
For people asking for proof: We've seen video from the ground in Kiev multiple nights with non-stop gunfire.

It was widely assumed at the time those were Russian troops, but it turned out they hadn't entered the city.

This guy's explanation is the logical one: criminal gangs.
We've also seen video of the Ukrainian government handing out rifles to civilians.

And President Zelensky specifically stated that convicted criminals would be *freed from prison* to fight the Russians.

So yes, this guy is biased against Zelensky, but his story 100% checks out.
I also think it's absurd that people are disparaging this video when it comes from somebody on the ground.

You're welcome to make your own assessment of his credibility.

But even if he's just reporting rumors in Kiev it's important to know they're circulating there.
If I posted a video from a Ukrainian nationalist in Kiev reporting war crimes by Russian forces, somehow I doubt it would get the same pushback.

But because this is an American who obviously dislikes Zelensky, people apply a different standard for what's worth watching. Silly!
MORE EVIDENCE: CBS News did a report on transgender Ukrainians.

The male-to-female interviewee in the piece confirmed the thesis of this thread:

The presence of weapons throughout Kiev makes the city extremely dangerous right now.
Here is a video of rifles being handed out to random civilians.

And here is a video of the gunfire inside Kiev before Russian forces arrived.

I have personally seen multiple other live streams showing similar long, sustained gun battles in the city.

I had to get to the bottom of this story, so I talked to the man in the video. Interview dropping soon.

Canada is now "holding Russia accountable" by detaining a charter flight full of its citizens.

If you wanted to sleepwalk into WW3, this is how you'd do it.
Canada's sanctions only apply to Russian *owned or operated* aircraft.

The Minister of Transportation says this was simply a charter flight carrying Russian nationals.

If that's true, this is kidnapping + air piracy.

Canada needs to *immediately* clarify the legal basis for detaining the charter flight.

What they have said so far is NOT sufficient.

If they have a legitimate justification, tell the world -- before Russia starts detaining Canadians.

SITREP - Day 8: Most analysts think the odds of a ceasefire are increasing in Ukraine.

They have it exactly backwards.

We've actually moved closer to the nightmare scenario where Kiev is simply leveled. 🧵
The Russian military is still in a strategic position to win the war.

They've already surrounded Azov Battalion at Mariupol, and they're on their way to encircling Ukraine's forces in the Donbas.

If this were a strategy game, you'd *really* want to play as Russia. Image
The fall of Kherson today, a city of 300k people, will mark a turning point in the war.

The Ukrainian forces barely put up any resistance, and the city was spared.

The message to other cities is clear: Fight and be leveled or surrender and be treated kindly. Image

Intense Russian strike in Kharkov.

Likely a Kalibr cruise missile, since the jet engine appears to go silent upon impact.

There are reports on social media of restaurants around the world banning Russians.

This discrimination has no place in a civilized society.

Random civilians should not be blamed for their government's wars.🧵
A restaurant in Greece allegedly bans Russians. Image
A restaurant in Portugal says "No service for Russians."

The sign says they'll only be served stone soup. "Bon Appétit!" Image

Ukrainian paramilitaries are abducting and killing officials viewed as insufficiently loyal -- with tacit support of the government.

If this were happening in Putin's Russia, it would be the #1 story in America.

But we stay silent about the murders, because it's our ally.
This is the official post from a senior Ukrainian governed official celebrating the mayor's abduction and extra-judicial killing.

I've redacted the photo of the corpse.

He boasts that there's "one less traitor to Ukraine," thanks to the actions of "unknown patriots." ImageImage
If you don't believe me, go to Telegram and read the statement yourself using Google Translate.

But be warned, you'll see the photo of the victim.

He appears to have been bound with duct tape at the time he was executed.…

Russia has targeted a TV tower in Kiev.

There are reports that local news channels are no longer available over the airwaves.

Alternate angle of the Russian strike on the Kiev TV tower.
It's being reported that the Russian Ministry of Defense warned not to approach the relay nodes before the strike.

Russia has obviously killed civilians by launching this operation, but they're going to greater lengths to protect them than the U.S. did in Iraq.
