Russian Mission – Geneva
International concern forced the Ukrainian Security Service to show that 🇨🇱/🇺🇸 reporter Gonzalo Lira, whom the nationalists detained on April 15, is alive!
However, he doesn’t have access to his cellphone and social media accounts, gagged on what he can say publicly, and not allowed to leave Kharkov.
In a way, he got “lucky”. A number of his fellow journalists, who received “the Ukrainian treatment of the free press”, will never be seen again.

Ed Note: It does not matter what you think of Gonzalo Lira personally. He may not be perfect as a human being, and are there any of us that are perfect? The man has become an Icon and a Testimony of what one imperfect man with a phone, computer, and internet connection can do. The Geneva MFA states that International Concern in this case, and so far, was effective. All of us should be mindful of what we can do! Keep up the pressure for his release, and the pressure on the release of Julian Assange.
Considering what has happened to other bloggers this week its good to see him – thank God he is ok.
It is interesting that this man has witnessed first hand how the Ukrainian regime is behaving, along with others such as Patrick Lancaster who has reported the atrocities being committed in Mariupol by the Ukrainian Nazis with great risk to their lives and very few have doubted their sincerity on this plus other platforms.
Yet, there is one particular social media site that we have both posted on which seems to have an editorial policy of believing that the events in the Ukraine are all being stage managed !
One things for sure, if he’s able to make it out in relative one piece then he’s got hell of a story to tell! I’m sure the novelist and filmmaker in him decided long ago to risk it all to document it. Opportunistic as well, but hats off to him
The mother of his kids is Ukrainian. He was in Ukraine to be with his children.
That event is happening in a perfect way to discredit readers of alternative media.
First he got famous, somehow.. next he is reported dead when he “just” disappeared.
Then he is back.
Who lost credibility? Anybody talking about his death in between, so alternative media readers.
Thats similar to covid vaxxin damage porn reporting.. unconfirmed information everywhere to make sure readers relating anything on this topic be looked at as lunatic (i agree mandates must be opposed though)
Effect here is somehow, it enables some to say: “see, all this reporting about ukraine machiavelism, its all exaggerated”.. when its not
– Thats similar to covid vaxxin damage porn reporting.. unconfirmed information everywhere to make sure readers relating anything on this topic be looked at as lunatic
The Pfizer Covids-19 trial was by itself unconfirmed science. If don’t think alternative media can possible be more unconfirmed than what Covid-Media already are. We are talking about lies so big Jesus would need Prozac.
I don’t agree.
We thought he was dead because there was good reason to suspect he was dead. When you just say that someone is ‘missing’ the implication is always there that they may just be on the run or laying low. Which wouldn’t get you on RT, or international attention.
He also didn’t get ‘famous somehow’, he was on Youtube for years, in the MGTOW and ‘internet bloodsports’ and free speech community. He was already quite well known before Russia’s military operation.
By getting the word out, we forced them to allow him to be heard from. Keep in mind people were concerned almost immediately, and I think that would have given the SBU pause, that people were already looking for a guy they ‘detained’ within hours of it happening.
That “false” report of his death by Scott may very well save his life in the end on the other hand anyway
I followed him 2008 – 2009 about financoal crises i decided to sell my flat 06/2008 here in Slovakia that i bought for 2.5m for 3.19m after 16 months making cca.30.000 euros current value, peek of the bubble, 3 month after the sale re market crashed.
I joined him again after his famous coverage from Kyev..
He is spot on certain things, i would appretiate him to make a particular video about these psy-ops technigues behind the MSM coverage of Ukie narrative. After all it is a front of this war also. Interesting comparision between millitary and psyop weaponry. Infantry, artillery and stuff
yeah would love to see that. Given that the biggest PsyOp is runnings since 45 all over the West. It would be quite interesting to dissect.
I’d agree with you had he come back saying he was just on the run. However, he was taken by the SBU, and there was no note about it (hadn’t seen any report by the SBU of Gonzalo’s arrest).
It’s credible that he was released only because of international pressure. There is no loss of credibility for alternative media or its readers.
Publicity is what saved him. The Kiev government and its handlers realized disappearing journalists was bad PR for their so called “democracy” while they are begging billions from Biden, so it’s a better look for Kiev to keep him alive.
Disappeared in a War zone, in Kharkiv infested with UKRO-NAZI’S , taken by Ukraines Gestapo the SBU as he says now , have you seen the way they treat people they claim are collaborators or russian spy’s , or how AZOV thugs treat Russian prisoners ,plenty of video evidence of torture and murder, not difficult to jump to conclusions is it, or assume the worst is it.
Yes its a interesting take. Especially the mods questioning more of the conversations now :) – not sure what that is about?
Still it has been a strange war and I’ve also questioned many aspects of it also but there are parts that are very real. A stop at the Grayzone should convince anyone thinking its all fake.
People must understand how much Gonzalo Lira means to the morale and perception of reality among the civilian population on a global scale.
Gonzalo Lira in interview with Scott Ritter broke through the information wall to the western population, regarding the reality of what is going on in Ukraine. That interview laid bare the reality of the war in Ukraine, by contradicting the Western war propaganda, and exposes the NAZI system that NATO is supporting in Ukraine.
Since then Scott Ritter has been interviewed by both The Duran, Judge Napolitano, and Dr. Ron Paul.
Even Swedish media has become interested in the fate of Gonzalo Lira.
Now a former Swiss officer and NATO analyst is breaking his silence as to what has happened in Donbass during the last 8 year, thereby totally contradicting the lies and silence from the western MSM: https://freewestmedia.com/2022/04/22/ex-nato-analyst-paints-a-completely-different-picture-of-ukraine-war/
Gonzalo Lira has become a second Julian Assange, in exposing the realities of the Civil war in Ukraine, and the rampant corruption inside western governments and its alliance, NATO.
However the dam has broken and more and more people in the west are rejecting the MSM narrative, dredged in US-EU-UK war propaganda.
It would be a triumph in the information war for Russia and the targeted Russian ethnic people in Ukraine, if Gonzalo is liberated from Kharkov (or wherever he is) by a platoon of Russian Spetsnaz.
I’m shure Russia knows where he is.
I’m so glad to see you alive Gonzalo
Thanks to Alex Christoforou for the great News.
Sweden has a large community of Chilean Refugees that came in in the 70s, before Sweden turned outright fascist….
We have a large Chilean community in Norway too, assimilated and hard working people most of them.
me like Your thinking.
It is very odd that a site which proclaims open and free debate is now adopting the tactics of the likes of the MSM Guardian by trying to suppress views that run contrary to their narrative ie Ukrainian Nazi atrocities.
Yes, I watched an excellent video from the Grayzone with Scott Ritter, who the mods at that site dismiss out of hand, which went into great detail about the war in the Ukraine. It’s long but highly recommended.
This is what happens to truth tellers in fascist Ukraine. He is lucky they did not murder him.
What happened to Assange in Sweden is not that different. They wanted to imprison Assange using whores as truth witnesses.
Their standard tactic – discredit the problem with a ” sex crime”, manufactured or otherwise whipped up….
His best hope is that Kharkov is liberated by Russian forces. But will the ukronazis let him live when they see their end approach?
Yeah they want him dead and are probably still in the process of coming up with ways of disposing him. otherwise why keep him In Ukraine when they could easily have him deported and he would no longer be an issue for them.
“We let him visit his second favourite chocolate shop under close supervision, when a tank being joy ridden by a drunken Chechen crew drifted into him and crushed him. We identified the driver as Kadyrov himself. So sorry, we have eye witnesses. The funeral will be closed casket at sea.”
Easy …. good to see he’s alive although obviously under direct supervision.
Gonzalo needs to make regular videos, even if to say hi, clear he is closely monitored, proof of life is good, but that’s just for today.
Given that there is not a lot he is allowed to say at the moment, I don’t think that’s going to happen.
That is a good news!
I very much hope this is pure info, and Gonzalo’s well being is intact. It seems so.
Which brings me to the point of a bad percentage of comments that have been made on Gonzalo’s fate.
Some of them have been atrocious wild speculations, gossipy narcisisstic illusions and just straight out cold of heart nonsense.
It goes to show how people feel about things, and thats what is happening in the world today. The veil is being lifted on peoples’, and governments’ true points of view. The empires are being exposed.
No one’s perfect, Gonzalo isn’t, but a braver man was not on these comments pages, spewing forth their armchair told you so’s about Gonzalo’s fate.
For those amongst us that cared for his well being, and cared even a little bit for the citizens involved in these operations, well I hope that care is self fostered somehow.
Just like the appalling character assassination of Julian Assange.
His body is free – thank god. Now they must be pressured to return to him his right to speak his mind. He must be free to travel and free to report. He must have his phone and laptop returned. This is outrageous behavior from the same hierarchy of totalitarian morons and satanic minions torturing Assange to death for the crime of genuine journalism.
Gonzalo on live now https://youtu.be/_PulorgALjY
Fantastic news. I hope he remains well and safe. Horrific to think all week what could have happened. We are all flawed, as you say but I have listened to Gonzalo and this man has soul.
Coach red pill is an asset, just like Assange.
I found it very odd that he doesn’t speak Russian or Ukrainian despite living in Ukraine. That doesn’t make sense. Lira is obviously bilingual already so his natural instinct would be to figure out the local language ASAP upon arriving.
To learn a foreign language, with characters from the Cyrillic script, requires more than learning a computer language. If it cost $50.000 to learn nursing … it will be at that level. If Conzalo Lira had $50.000 in debt already his debt would be doubled.
Oh I disagree. Once you learn your first foreign language, the rest are far easier. Pretty soon it’s just a drill: Every language is basically 200-300 words. Make your own dictionary in a coffee shop over the first week in a country and pretty soon you are rolling.
Lira is a verbal dude and very curious and very smart. I think it would drive him crazy to live somewhere and not speak the language.
Granted Russian is a LITTLE harder than western languages, but really not that much harder. It’s actually kind of fun to figure out the Cyrilic. I spent two years working casually on Russian and enjoyed it quite a bit. Though it was about my 4th language at that point so I knew the drill.
“Once you learn your first foreign language, the rest are far easier.”
Rubbish. After five years of age the language learning part of the brain shrinks remarkably fast. Only a small % of adults can absorb new languages easily; you seem to be in that cohort, but do not make the mistake learning a language is easy or possible for all.
And as for GL being bi-lingual, he learned both languages when young as we all did.
“After five years of age the language learning part of the brain shrinks remarkably fast. ”
I suppose this is OT, but since you say this . . .
Well, I think that is rubbish. Newest research shows that the brain is actually very plastic and its capacity to learn has not really been plumbed.
Unfortunately this kind of rubbish is accepted by English speakers as a great excuse because they are the least willing of all language groups to make the effort to learn other languages, and, indeed, to learn “the drill” of learning a foreign language. It’s too bad that foreign languages are so little respected in the USA and the UK, but the idea that the language forming part of the brain shrivels is utter bunk. What does fall off is memory—ability to memorize. Also, some people have a much better ear than others for mimicking the sounds and rhythms of the target language.
I have prepped for a couple of vacations by learning the rudiments of the language—Spanish, Italian, and French, Dutch, Danish. Using Pimsleur tapes and a CD with basic phrases. Motivation is indispensable!
Lira had ten years to learn Ukrainian or Russian and was in an ideal situation (family/partner/kids) to do so if he had been motivated.
learning a foreign language is an intellectual adventure that gives you a new view of yourself and opens doors to another culture. I have always found it odd that Lira didn’t learn either language.
Nonsense, a literate westerner can learn the cyrillic alphabet in a couple of days and neither Ukrainian nor Russian is tremendously hard if you’re learning in situ and surrounded by it all the time, especially for someone who already knows a couple of languages.
And eastern europe is very much a place where you need to know the language to know what’s really going on.
not necessarily . many indians speak three languages but when they work in Gulf arab states they dont pickup arabic. even muslims who read the Quran in arabic and read and write their mother tongue Urdu which is written in Arabic script they still dont pick up Arabic even after years of living in Gulf arab states.
thank God he is alive This is a great day today.
He looked like he past hell the last 4-5 days and he should get the hell out of there asap
Human existence is about learning. The process of perfecting is the focus, not perfection. When we do not understand this, we focus on the wrong things. That is why talking smack about Gonzalo is ridiculus, as some whom have even attempted to harm him have done. In my book, Ganzalo is a decent human being.
It was good to see him alive. It is a win for all of us. One less slaughtered during this war and I will gladly take it.
Thanks God! Happy to learn this. His captivity is unjust of course, and I guess the ukros are not above trying to use him as an asset, but it could be much worse.
Gonzalo Lira is undoubtedly a charming and strong man, although he sometimes tends toward being a bit of a pig and I’ve called him out on this. lol I’m totally relieved to learn that he is alive!! I’m grateful his family didn’t have to go through more than they did. I’m horrified that others were not so lucky. I’m deeply saddened and angry that so many young lives have been lost, on both sides, in the Ukraine because this entire fiasco could have been handled diplomatically if we had “real” and honest politicians in office willing to show their faces and act in good faith instead of the cockroach cowards who hide in the shadows making corrupted decisions that have negatively impacted the world.
Welcome back Gonzalo Lira!
My sentiments exactly.
Praise be to God !
Great news! It is good to know that Ukrainians are sensitive to iternational pressure. Now we must keep pushing until Gonzalo is free.
This interview suggests the he is not.
Yes, excellent news. We missed his mellifluous observations.
“It is good to know that Ukrainians are sensitive to iternational pressure”
The SBU goons like Zelensky are under tight control.
What remains of the Ukraine is a PR construct, all aspects run by Zio-USUK. This reprieve could be embarrassment by the US at having such a visible citizen eliminated so shamelessly; it might open a Pandora’s box, risking others (operatives) in this and other theatres. Not prudent to let nazi sharks taste American blood. It has become an acquired taste in West Asia, like in SE Asia before it.
I would think that Chile also helped. It is an influential country and rat-line destination of many past and prospective nazis.. one doesn’t kick the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
Unless you get there and it is filled w/pennies you do, in the teeth.
Here’s video from yesterday ,April 21st, 2022
On 16:45 host or “Ron Paul Liberty Report” talks with Scott Ritter about disappearance of Gonzalo Lira.
It seems that only the most blatant Ukrainians blunders seep through US firewall. Even then, only at the fringe of US political core. Possibly, some of help came from that side too.
Enough to save Mr. Lira’s life, but for how long? He must be pulled out before some crazed Azovite decides to call it a day. Handlers could not control their Frankenstein monster all the time.
Yeah!! GREAT NEWS!!
(Sorry Saker. Deserving of caps.)
I got a feeling that picture is not Gonzalo Lira. Please compare that picture with his real pictures..
I have that feeling to , even when he talk he sound different , but maybe that’s of grown beard .
I have same feeling , he’s not look and sound same but maybe because of hes beard .
He’s of higher value to Ukie alive than dead. Think about that.
They should exchange him.
10 to 1…
10 Ukronazi for him …
It’s a good exchange rate.
After watching beginning of the second video my innate paranoia is starting to twitch. I know it is possible to make elaborate ruse with extensive use of deep fake and voice acting, but this is just not enough important for such overkill.
Ukies could just take of Mr. Lira’s devices, and after serious intimidation, threthen him with
much harsher consequences if he continue to talk publicly.
Maybe they will force him to spout some disinformation when time comes. Impossible to know.
The only solution is to force Ukraine goverment to let Mr. Lira go to Donetsk or Russia and talk to the press. Then he can go back to Kharkov, if he decides to.
To me it looks like Lira.
But doesn’t speak like Lira.
No “hmmmmm” after every sentence.
His encounter with the SBU broke him. Maybe they did not torture or rape him. But he lost his sense of safety and cover. They have his laptop and phone and he can not leave kharkov. We do not know what was said to him. He can not speak about what happened.
When it had become obvious that he had gone missing I tried contacting the Chilean embassy in Warsaw (as he’d asked) seemingly to no effect. Phone was constantly engaged & an email wasn’t replied to. I contacted the Consulate in my home country, New Ealand (Remember that “Z” has been banned/cancelled by Elensky . . . ;-) ) Paula Alvarez from the Chilean Consulate in Wellington was very helpful, contacting Santiago & passing on our concerns for his safety which along with everyone else who did the same appears to have borne fruit. Thank God !! I HAD given up hope . . . that’ll teach me.
I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear the news that his home was hit by a Russian missile in next few days or weeks.
I like him a lot but has he told us where he was this whole time? Did he say he was taken into custody by Ukros? Who kidnaps him and lets him go, for him to say the same again?
Sadly I believe we will see a different Lira from now on. Let us see .
It seems he’s under house arrest with a minder off screen. He said his phone and laptop were seized, so how was he able to livestream today? He needs to post proof of life videos daily so if he goes dark again we can sound the alarm immediately.
It is great news that Gonzalo Lira is alive, but there is something weird.
Seems like some kind of ‘house arrest’, he is not allowed to say what happened, but he seems sort of okay. Let’s not cheer too much yet, that’s an Assange status.
A lot may have happened in the background that will not be mentioned. I still fear that he is kind of a pawn in a dirty game, but I do hope I’m wrong.
He’s under a ‘gag order’, he stated as much when he said “I can’t really say anything, but when I come back I’ll have ‘something smart’ to say”……that’s pure Shakespeare, it’s all in the wording, it makes Spanglish what it is.
Here’s the latest from RT on Gonzalo Lira
Fate of American Zelensky critic who went missing in Ukraine revealed
Gonzalo Lira said he had been taken by the Ukrainian Security Service last Friday
It was clear Lira was and would remain alive when Nazi leader Chile from Kharkov boasted publicly he knew where Lira was.
These Azov type guys are crazy but not stupid. If they had received green light to kill a Western journalist, they would have done so in secrecy and quietly.
Good to see him free and at least “safe” for now.
What shocked me to the core in this affair and the SMO is how utterly spiteful, narcissistic and bloodthirsty my fellow “Zone A” inhabitants really are, they love to feast on others misery and get a Dopamine high from pointing at people and really revel in their misfortune.
That video of that small village with destroyed tank and recording the soldiers and that close up of that women I felt was a mistake by him. I imagine those being recorded especially that woman spent a considerable amount of time talking among themselves about who thisgonzalo was and why he was doing this? The final gulp for me
Was filming the helmet and crest of a French foreign legionnaire? Not good I felt.
When I saw the news this morning, I was overjoyed. I had prayed for this outcome. What Jarek Carnelian is correct, however. Gonzalo Lira must be free both in body and mind.
Justement, parce que nul n’est parfait, tous le monde aime Gonzalo Lira.
Longue vie et que son personnage continue à parler à des gens qui ne sont pas “parfaits” mais qui aiment l’humain dans l’humanité.
Wonderful news! As we had all hoped! Thank you for posting this!
I don’t wish to spin this tread off on a tangent, but Julian Assange admitted to allowing Israel to “filter” all Wikileaks classified material. His “Filter” is the understatement of all time. He’s personally given great praise to bloodthirsty Benjimin Netanyahu, who he’s met with, and been photographed with, Wikileaks is a Mossad front…Never a mention of Gaza atrocities, ISIS proxies, or the crimes of the IDF, Israeli publications speak highly of Assange, there’s another clue.
I don’t know if many are aware that Assange was bailed out by a Rothschild sister in-law and had been under house arrest in a Rothschild mansion, which doesn’t sound like very brutal accommodations. Also, consider why Assange has not released an information about how Israel and the traitorous Zionist collaborators within our own government were 100% behind the attacks on September 11, 2001, or why Assange does not release information about the multiple Israeli false flag attacks around the world in order to keep us in perpetual war in the Middle East for their plans to expand Greater Israel, while crashing and trashing the USA. The 100% Zionist Jewish owned and controlled mainstream media is information’s public enemy number one, and Wikileaks is presented as a hard-hitting truthful alternative, with Assange as a victim…Oy Vey!
Z for Victory!
You don’t want to spin off as a tangent, and yet, you do right that. Of course that is exactly what you wanted to do because that is what you did.
I mentioned Assange for a reason. The intelligent among us understand that Gonzalo’s management is of course not up to the Ukrainian Secret Service, but up to their bosses, some US intelligence service. And it is being mentioned that we have to watch closely as this may be exactly the Assange playbook. A little freedom, a little less – people complain, a little more – it may be just the same playbook.
In terms of what you are saying – you are repeating a lot of things that are not true. This meme, this mindblind was fed into the US society for anyone that may have felt that their administration is acting heinously in terms of Assange.
What is better than to blame the Jews and the Rothschilds – everyone eats that stuff up, and accepts it with glee and joy, without going to the source.
The mansion of house arrest is used as a Club. Assange and his team paid for accommodation and food, and the mansion at that time belonged to the ex-wife of Imran Khan. So a lot of your education via US alt media is not valid and does not stand up. But I don’t want to sidetrack this thread. Meet me in the Cafe for education, if you seek one. Probably next week sometime.
Kindly go and do a lot more research.
With all due respect sir, I’d appreciate your input, and information I’ve yet to learn, thank you! I lay blame with Zionism, Loxism, Satanism…
The ex-wife of Imran Khan, Jemima Goldsmith, is the sister of Kate Rothschild’s ex-husband Ben Goldsmith…Kate’s father was the late Amschel Rothschild…My presumption was the mansion estate would still be historically referenced as a Rothschild property…Jemima,(Muslim convert) is godmother to Kate’s son…
Happy Easter Amarynth! Enjoy your weekend sir!
Z for Victory!
You make good point rootin, all backed up by facts. Some people just have blinkers on when it comes to JA.
I too used to think wikileaks was above board, but when the facts are shown re wikileaks never releasing damaging info re Zionists one must break the spell.
Far as I am aware, Wikileaks never published a whole lot of anti-China information. So, does that break a spell?
You all need to go and look for the interview in which he explained this. Wikileaks receives informational leaks. They then verify the information rigorously. If it can be verified they publish it. JA explained at the time that Wikileaks had not received anything from Zionist specific circles. It is quite open – just needs some proper research.
It is so that when people say these things about JA and Wikileaks, they never even bothered to go and search the cables themselves. I just did, and there is plenty from and to Israel. Here is just one search that I did. https://wikileaks.org/plusd/?qproject%5B%5D=ps&qproject%5B%5D=cc&qproject%5B%5D=fp&qproject%5B%5D=ee&qproject%5B%5D=cg&q=zionist&qtfrom=2010-01-01#result
Besides, what was published in Cablegate was a bunch of cables from various American embassies. People must check their alt news sources as rigorously as msm news sources.
Yes, the definition of “I am a good person” tends to be “I hate Israel” (“Isreal” is the political correct form of “jews”)
From the moderator.
Take further discussion on this matter to the MFC.
Any further discussion of this here will be trashed because this moderator won’t be asking a third time.
Hasbara has entered the chat……
Big thumbs up to moderators. They are doing their job so good I almost forgot that sinking feeling from other blogs – drowning in Hasbaras.
– Never a mention of Gaza atrocities
You are talking about murders of 2000 + 1000 ++
The Syria war is about 200,000-400,000
Donbass war is 14.000 civilians
Death rate – number of deaths per year per 1000 – is 8.5 in Sweden, 12 in Russian, 5 in Israel and 3 in Gaza. For some reason people are more likely to die of Covid-19 or whatever in Israel … than those in Gaza.
@kjell108, Should we take it back to 1947 and the Haganah? Or, just narrow it down to Thermobaric Air Strikes on a civilian population, based on cartoons of underground weapons storage, and IDF shooting off arms and legs of children from100 meters beyond to separation fence in Gaza? On what the IDF calls going on Safari? Or the Beirut “Fertilizer” fission weapon blast? Don’t have enough page here to list them all…Israel did 9/11 beyond a shadow of doubt…Shalom!
Z for Victory
From the Moderator:
Off topic. Please take any further discussion on this matter to the MFC. Thanks.
Wow, this is really good news!
Surprise, surprise for me, he is still alive. Better to be a political pawn than to be dead.
Thank God. The publicity helped. SBU and Zelensky regime are conscious of PR as its the ONLY thing they sell to their masters in the West. They need funds to pilfer and western politicians need PR to keep on convincing their sheeple to ‘sacrifice for freedom in Ukraine.’ And of course justification to keep sending weapons.
Gonzalo will only be safe if he’s allowed to leave or he gets deported. Indeed the most sensible thing for SBU would have to deport Gonzalo he ceases to be a problem for them; but keeping him around ‘for investigations!’ while war is ongoing is really suspect.
Heck! In the middle of war this State organization like SBU has time and resources to keep ‘investigating’ and bothering an independent blogger/journalist? They are dangerously stupid.
Thank God he is alive and well!
This is good news. I thought Gonzalo was finished.
All the prayers, concern and contacting embassies etc paid out i must say, even the notorious and discusting sodomite, a man and FBI informant in woman’s clothing called “Sahra” Ashton-Cirillo who previously announced that Gonzo was snatched by the gestapo SBU and wished videos of his beheading to be released soon, held back all kinds of satanic ill wishes when he said in a video that Gonzo is indeed alive.
What saved him from the unspeakable fate others have suffered at the hands of the drug addict ukie regime and its gestapo thugs? Who knows? Maybe his American and Chilean citizenship.
This made my day.
Praying and writing for Mr Lira and all the other people who are captive.
Lira has US and Chilean citizenship. That’s what saved him. The SBU nazis will reap a lot of trouble and unwanted attention, in the nation of their main sponsorship (USA) if they kill him.
I’ll say here what I said to Gonzalo on Twitter.
Do not forget the story of Nestor Shufrych. He was picked up by SBU and then released, he recorded a video saying he was fine and everything was ok. Then he just disappeared without a trace, never to be heard from again. Most likely he didn’t survive the second SBU visit.
Don’t let the same thing happen to Gonzalo! SBU likes to play these games of “catch and release” so they can then say they had nothing to do with the persob’s death because they let him go. They will just let the individual fade from the forefront of the public eye because “he’s fine and safe, but I’m not gonna bother watching him because he isn’t allowed to post anymore”, and then when the media attention quiets down, they can come back to kill their target.
Always keep following Gonzalo and don’t let him be forgotten! At this point a forgotten Gonzalo is a dead Gonzalo.
We must also hope that the siege of Kharkov happens soon, because I’m sure the SBU can also think of other ways to kill him without tracing the act back to themselves. He’s in an extremely precarious situation no matter what right now.
This is, what worries me. They can wait until things calm down and people loose interest in Gonzalo. He can only count on Russian army at this point.
Interesting scenario….yes that’s the worry.
Hopefully Kharkhov will be liberated soon, and Gonzalo with it.
“Ed Note: It does not matter what you think of Gonzalo Lira personally.”
But, I would adds, if you feel compelled to express it, know that it is irrelevant, off topic and indicative, if not of idiocy, then of low moral character or both.
Refuting such posts is a waste of comment space so a simple “BB” label should be the sufficient response. (“BB” being the acronym for “barf bag”).
As for Gonzalo’s “luck” it is impossible to know how much of it is due to the public pressure of people demanding to know what the “democratic” forces of Ukraine have done to him. Let us hope the noise in international media helped and keep it in mind when the next independent reporter goes silent. At the same time exposure and criticism of vile “doxxers” like the The Daily Beast must not stop.
On one side, I am happy to see him fine. On the other, I would love to know a bit more details on what happened to him.
Gonzalo’s BACK! Yeah!!!!
Very good news!
His popularity has kept him alive. And, also made him a bargaining chip.
They will now look at him as an asset. Hopefully, he remains that way.
Wow. It is quite a relief to see that he is alive. But it is obvious and a bit eerie to see how restricted he is. He really is under some sort of arrest, and sounds like a P.O.W. Could only keep repeating “I’m okay physically–a bit rattled.” But very good to hear his voice. Any news yet on any plans to release/exchange him and others?
Truly an Easter miracle! The Lord has responded to Andrei’s prayer.
I am very happy to be wrong about my prediction for Gonzalo.
It’s good to be wrong sometimes.
so happy he’s okay – I was imagining him in the spiritual world. so happy he’s okay
Thank god. Long may he stay OK.
Thanks God! Hopefully one day we can feel a bit of the same joy for the martyred Julian Assange, and of course other journalists who receive less attention, like Pablo Gonzalez, now imprisoned in Poland (just an example). Strength and encouragement, gladiators for the truth!
Gonzalo is hostage. Waiting to be exchanged for some fat Azov leader.
Not gonna happen.
Azov will leave Kharkov, in Blue and Yellow busses, lucky they have their skin on.
If anything happens to Mr. Lira, those responsible wont get bus ticket.
Pretty sure nazis are not candidates for war crime tribunals, not exchange.
Thank the Lord. Let us all make a lot of noise in his support.
Well he is back posting on twitter, if its him!
“American/Chilian blogger captured, tortured, and killed by Ukrane” is certainly not the story the US puppetmasters want to see going around the world — it would harm their narrative about defenders of freedom against big bad Russia, and deal a significant blow to their information war. But he is silenced for the time being, and that is what was most important to the empire.
“Notorious Russian disinformation blogger caught in indiscriminate fire of Russian troops into residential buildings” … did you see how they described Medvedchuk’s detention (and probably much worse)?
There is a significant and growing disparity between what the US and it allies and media says, which is being increasingly ignored even by some in the US, and the truth which is reported elsewhere and picked up by an increasing number of people. As the direction of the information starts to turn we should keep in mind that ‘The west has one the information war’ should be modified by ‘so far’, as it is still being waged with no final victory, and the truth is still picking up steam, albeit too slowly for my liking, but in for the long haul.
The more of the empire’s lies fall apart, as they continue to do, the less effective they become.
Being an activists is a risky business.
For instance, I saw this story today about his home region of ‘Latin America’.
“Latin America Is a Dangerous Place For Environmental Activists”
“According to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), 75 percent of the murders of the human rights and environmental activists that occurred in the world in 2020 took place in Latin America.
In that year, the Latin American cases, which were mainly linked to the rejection of the activities of transnational corporations, were registered in Colombia (65) Mexico (30), Brazil (20), Honduras (17), and Guatemala (13).”
Being an activist who stands up to the Empire of Lies is risky. There’s almost 150 murders of human rights and environmental activists in just those five nations that are all closely a part of the Empire of Lies.
I wish Mr. Lira well, and I’m glad he is safe. But, keep a mind open for all of the others who die, disappear or are tortured for standing up the Empire of Lies. I just keep hoping that Russia is starting a trend of de-nazification that will end up sweeping the world clean and people everywhere can stand up and say what they believe without fear.
Happy indeed that Gonzalo is in one piece.
However the 2 prominent Russian gas industry deaths in a single day are highly ominous, in both cases their wives and children also died. One of the deceased was head of GazpromBank, which has been very much in the news / the front line of the Gas for Roubles initiative.
Not sure if posting links to ZeroHedge is ok or not, but the story and some more links can be found there.
To me it looks like liqudation of two wealthy Russian families Empire style. A show of force and capability.
This reminded me a movie called “Missing”. Directed by Costa Garvas in 1982. A American father – Jack Lemmon- is looking for his son who gone missing in Chilli under Pinochet dictatorship. Finally He finds out his son has been captured and murderred by regime guys. Gonzalo is a Chillian. Just a strange coincidance after 40 years nothing has changed, just names.
It’s a great relief to see Gonzalo alive and well (if shaken). With some luck, he will be able to leave Kharkov and go to somewhere safer.
Other bloggers were not so fortunate as Gonzalo. They were treated to a hail of bullets or worse. The Ukronazis have him essentially on a short leash and all of his communications are now compromised. I pray his family is as far away from the scene of the action as can be.
Awesome news! Agree with your sentiment.
FREE JULIAN ASSANGE!!!!!
Obviously, not all Ukros are ‘Nazis’.
I think not…🧐
The narrative will have to evolve thought…
Someone connected with Russia, or relating this, mentioned contacts in the SBU. (Turned the tide in Gonzo’s favor??)
I am happy but very surprised. I thought he would be killed as soon as he was found.
Thank God, that did not happen.
My take on why Lira was spared is beacaue the 1st he being a US citizen and 2nd the nazis wanted to show to the world that they are good and they don’t kill journalist. It might also be that they will try at a later stage when the russian will come to take Kharkiv and blame russian for it. I am really happy that Gonzo got a 2nd lease of life and he should try to get out of the place at the first moment of opportunity. Thanks
Thanks for also pointing to the plight of Julian Assange who now needs our thoughts and prayers more than ever.
“The Ukrainian SBU security services have served as the enforcement arm of the officially authorized campaign of repression. With training from the C.I.A. and close coordination with Ukraine’s state-backed neo-Nazi paramilitaries, the SBU has spent the past weeks filling its vast archipelago of torture dungeons with political dissidents.”
Nobody is perfect! The ones that don’t show any imperfection, are evil inside, this I found out. The ones that are picture perfect, are the ones that are the most rotten, the evilest ones. You will discover pedophiles and so one among them.
I so much more prefer a person that shows his imperfections, or it is being gossiped for some not so perfect private matters, that ones are human, that ones are real. tnhe ones that build a perfect life in exterior… these ones are the most dangerous ones. And we saw so many examples: perfect marriages, perfect everything, stability and the most dangerous of them all!!!
I so much hope Gonzalo will be freed! I pray for him in this holy time! And cry for those that lost their lifes!
I am very glad he is alive. I guess everyone’s concern and noise made a difference. That’s good. Good way to start the Easter weekend.
Maybe the US heavies are now cautious about any publicity about Zelensky and the true influence of the Asov battalion.
All which has previously been well disguised in order to garner international sympathy towards Ukraine.
Maybe the US controllers feel that with Gonzalo’s oral evidence the world may see things very differently, and will attempt to question the current status quo.
This episode may be a catalyst therfore for a new understanding of events in Ukraine that have so far been carefully hidden from all media.
It was good to see him again and with special help from Alex Christoforou. Two good men together.
Glad he is OK. The story stinks to high heaven. Not believable. We shall see.
What action do you recommend? Calls to our senators and congressmen? Is there a better # someone can recommend?
A march at the FL Capitol with signs?
Thank you to anyone who responds
I found the Duran episode with Lira to be disconcerting. Here we have a man who disappears for a week and once he pops up he says he can’t say much about why he was detained but that he’s supposedly stuck where he’s at and can’t leave. He then proceeds to make comments that you would imagine were the very reasons the lunatic Ukrainians would have picked him up in the first place! Seriously? What the hell, Lira? Shouldnt you shut your trap at least for your family’s sake? There’s something seriously wrong here with this whole scenario. I dont believe the SBU would give a damn about making him disappear without so much as one crocodile tear. What’s one less noisy Chilean-American when you’ve already murdered countless of your own? Its simply bizarre.
All useful points to consider. Fog of war, propaganda and the like we must contend with. Personally, something does feel off about him now that I have thought about it long enough. I’m going to move on and I wish him well, either way. It’s too perplexing anymore.
Happy to see Gonzalo still alive. Was worried he might have accidentaly bumped into some sub 80 IQ goons after the stupidity of the Daily Beast. Still not out of the woods, but could have been much worse.
What I see as the great thing in all of this, is that it shows what ‘People Power’ can do. I would like to thank all telegram channels, bloggers and posters, who persisted in finding and answer to the question “Where is Gonzalo Lira ?”. This is how the world will change, unity behind a common goal. Many tiny voices becomes a big roar.
How did he get online when he doesn’t have a phone or computer?
I’m a huge fan of GL, but how he was ever released by those who would have considered his head a quintessential trophy, is beyond me.
Kadyrov does not drink :-)
Technical question: how do you do a video interview on the internet if you don’t have a computer or a cell phone? My question does not imply doubts on the credibility of the video, I am just curious.
You borrow one…..or one was provided to authenticate he’s still alive.
