What the hell is happening in Ukraine? Where’s the reporting of the frightening developments described in the video clip below? Contrast these quotes from the clip with the relative complacency of most MSM reports:
Leading intelligence author William Engdahl’s investigated post-coup Ukraine (and) finds what’s happened is “so astonishing as almost to defy belief”.
Ukraine’s new coalition calls officially for “pre-emptive nuclear strikes”.
Pensions halved to $3 a day, heating costs doubled, forced sell-off of the country’s land and resources – all part of IMF “knee-breakers” imposed round the world, now in Ukraine.
Kolomoysky has his own private army, and set up the Azov Battalion of openly Nazi mercenaries, which London’s Sunday Times admits is behind the bloodshed that has caused revulsion among the population.
In another leaked call an official reveals Kolomoysky’s also behind the Odessa massacre, the deadliest attack so far in Ukraine’s civil war, where he paid Nazis from the infamous Right Sektor Party that burnt, slaughtered and strangled dozens of civilians to death, including elderly women.
Leaked conversation between Deputy Nestor Shufrich and Fatherland leader Yulia Timoshenko:
Shufrich: What shall we do with the eight million Russian(-speakers) in Ukraine?
Timoshenko: Kill them with nuclear weapons.
The neo-Nazis are paying regular reconnaissance visits to nuclear power stations, with obvious intent to hold the whole world hostage. They have paid visits to bacteriological laboratories and, according to the people working there, got hold of bacteriological material that can be used for biological warfare. Other terrorists have merely been dreaming of such weapons – Ukrainian ones, with the connivance of or on direct orders from someone in the junta, may actually use them.
Governments are now voicing concern that Kiev may be violating the international Missile Technology Control treaty, and the Hague Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missile Proliferation.
Intelligence author William Engdahl ‘… tiny power cabal that have so much power in Washington, they want not only a new cold war, they want a new hot war.’
Michael Hudson speculates that ‘This could well be another test on how far things can be pushed, building on Latvia.’ He assesses the current situation:
There was a Chilean-type military coup d’etat there. The people of Ukraine do not sign off on the IMF IOUs and sign the transfer of property. The coup d’etat leaders in Kiev signed up and what do they want? Their aim is not to help Ukraine, their aim is to get rich for themselves and to move as much of their money into London, New York and other centers as they can.
But in addition to the profiteering, Andrew Korybko writes that full-fledged ethnic and cultural ‘cleansing’ of the Donbass region is intended.
This flagrant violation of fundamental human rights is being absolutely ignored by Western governments, which are usually the first actors to prematurely blow the whistle on any suspected human rights violations and threaten military intervention. It is now seen that the human intervention/responsibility to protect (HI/R2P) rhetoric and slogans were nothing more than charades to pursue ulterior geopolitical purposes. In fact, contrary to their established HI/R2P “credentials”, the West, particularly the US, is actually aiding and abetting the Kievan regime that plans to carry out the cleansing . Military advisors, millions in funds, and CIA and FBI support have flooded into Ukraine since the coup, and more than likely, they will all be directed eastwards towards violently suppressing the federalist protesters . In this manner, the US is directly complicit in any and all war crimes that Kiev’s conventional or mercenary forces carry out, up to and including Koval’s ethnic and cultural cleansing plans. Thus, the six million people of Donbass are faced with the same type of humanitarian disaster that was thought to have been forever vanquished from Europe almost 70 years ago.
Top Five Ukraine Stories a Western Mainstream Media “Fail”
If you live to the west of Russia’s borders, what you see and hear from embattled Ukraine is not the whole story. And without the whole story, your version of truth turns out to be a lie. Below are some graphic stories that are necessary to share, if only to show the Donetsk independence movement side of a civil war brought on by major powers’ failure to compromise. Kiev’s new government has apparently been given a credit card to invoke a genocide of collateral damage.
The final story in the Butler piece is repeated in the video clip below. It is a street interview by Graham Phillips with a woman in Lugansk and speaks for itself of the desperation of ordinary Ukrainians caught up in this terrifying mess.
