The Essential Saker III: Chronicling The Tragedy, Farce And Collapse of the Empire in the Era of Mr MAGA
Language Police Here – ‘The accepted narrative’ is that the Kiev Military killed the civilians (collaborators and saboteurs) in Bucha.
The internet is being censored in the UK. I tried to post the statement by the Russian UN representative to a friend and the server rejected the post. I’m on my friends protected list so the server saw the RU code in the links and thus refused and rejected. Big brother is now controlling the UK!
The UK/US/EU Economies are in tatters, bankrupted, looks like the lights are about to go out in many households. Soup Kitchens I kid you not are relied upon in many Northern, UK settlements, yes settlements, as many areas in the heartlands, Manchester, Liverpool, are beginning to look pre-industrial, post war.
So the PLAN is to feed Joe Soap 24/7 Russo propaganda to keep up our spirits in our old kitbags and smile. Can’t see that working past summer.
The police have better equipment than the military, I’ve come to understand. So no worries.
It’s easier to change the links Before you post it to Anyone. I’ve found the best way to do this is via Tiny Url – https://tinyurl.com/app/ . Two main advantages -It shortens most links dramatically & there is no hint as to the subject or website. Bonus -it’s free.
UK is the top zensor – manipulator, US has more (selfprinted) money and is causing much more noise.

Pentagon Fails To Confirm Russian Involvement In Bucha Killings.
Yesterday Reuters reported: “The Pentagon is not in a position to independently confirm Ukrainian accounts of atrocities by Russian forces against civilians in the town of Bucha”.
As the EU proposes more sanctions on Moscow in response to alleged Russian brutality in Bucha.
Kremlin says this is a clear attempt to smear the Russian Army.
Kremlin also point toward the fact that a Russian initiative of an independent investigation into the matter is being blocked by Britain at the UN.
Ukrainian MP Ilya Kiva said that the tragedy in Bucha was prepared by the SBU, and planned by the British intelligence MI6
Officers from France, Germany, Britain and Sweden got stuck at Azovstal in Mariupol.
Right now they are getting in touch with the Russian troops with a request to organize a corridor for their exit.
What struck me about this was the two guarantors of the Minsk agreements – France and Germany (NATO) – are with the Nazis in Mariupol. What utter deceitful scum.
They should not be allowed to walk away for the 2nd time as in 2015 (Debaltsevo) – but stand trial for their war crimes and deaths of civilians. Two more helicopters were shot down again today – trying to rescue these murderers.
It also blows apart the lies of not allowing Ukraine to join NATO – when they are being run/directed by NATO for this whole SMO. Many of us here know this – but not the general public worldwide.
The World needs to know the truth. They are the war criminals and terrorists. They have allowed the torture and murder of Russian POW’s and 10’s of thousands of civilians.
Russia must expose the truth this time. Enough is enough.
Do these officers fall under Geneva code of conduct? If they get caught do they enjoy the status of POW? I think someone can argue that they don’t.
No mercy this time. These scums are fully in bed with Azov. I say stop these free passes for them and make them accountable to their crimes.
They are acting as mercenaries, of a third country. Should be executed accidentaly….
No, these people should be treated graciously (block all possible exits, though) and encouraged to tell us their whole story and who they know and so forth and so on.
Debrief them thoroughly.
Research their background. Publish their individual CVs.
Put them on RT. Let them say what they want.
Make it clear to the world’s viewing public that they are de facto NATO.
Then use them as bargaining chips.
According to the Russian defense ministry.
2 Ukrainian Mi-8 helicopters again tried to evacuate leaders of the Azov Battalion from Mariupol.
They were both shot down.
Think more high value officers [that may include Brits+] trying to hide their presence in Mariupol
Thank you for this address. I have just added the channel to my Telegram.
According to VT a 3 star US general commanding the Azov has been captured at Mariupol.
Just imagine all these cowardly NATO officers are hiding behind human shields and have probably kidnapped civilians at gunpoint to take to their hideout.
Not stuck I guess but hostages of Asov Nazis
They are the only hope left for these monsters
I can’t wait to see how this further develops
I’m sure the Russians will watch carefully that no one escapes from there
Thought I noticed a ukie Kleenex in Ernie Johnson’s sportcoat pocket, during TBS’ NCAA championship coverage last night. Is this correct? Earlier, during an NBA broadcast, Barkley remarked on someone’s ukie kicks, and Doris Burke and broadcast partner (forgettable name, I guess) exchanged shaming comments on ‘Russia bombing the maternity hospital’ NBA likes int’l players, let’em open a studio in Lemberg, where the above-mentioned trio can broadcast with their Nazi chums.
They censor you because they don’t want you to question their lies
And the beauty is, it works exactly as it should. Anyone who is slightly skeptical of the official narrative becomes ever more so, and anyone who isn’t skeptical by now, is not capable of thinking for themselves anyway.
It may not be apparent, but you don’t want cattle on the human side. They belong with their masters. The herd animals in human form, can pretend to be human all they want, but they don’t belong here. They are not ready. And they are dangerous to real humans as long as they believe themselves to be what they pretend to be, in service to those who pretend to be god.
Wrong. The majority does not believe the propaganda. By projecting that we’re a marginalized group, you’re actually part of the propaganda.
Correct – the war party wants us to believe we are a tiny minority but reality is regimist media these days has the viewership of a mid tier YouTube blogger.
Independent media has many multiple more readers than the regime
I just came from a thread about Zelensky’s security council speech ( citizenfreepress) and had to go to the 16th comment before I found one that was even partially pro ukraine. Maybe people are more awake than I believe.
That’s where you’re wrong. The cattle are the true victims -as far as I see it. I’m the lucky one, who knows enough to keep my wits about me- even if they throw me in jail.
This is how I think, too. At a certain stage of this world conflict, most people (I said PEOPLE!) will start thinking by themselves, too.
The only response necessary for Russia, is that the criminals responsible will face war crimes
trials, and that the usual suspect instigators will be exposed and subject to arrest anywhere in
Of course! Lies run all around the world in the time it takes the Truth to wake up ,puts its socks and shoes on , to start running after it.
The Natoists achieved what they wanted; to put it in people’s minds that the Russians did it. Youtube and the Pentagon can be “gracious” now and stop the talk ,the damage is done. It is like the Tv show lawyer asking an offensive question in court only to be stoped by the judge, the jury though has already heard it and it has influenced them.
Russia must not defend itself, byt simply attack and say “ Why do you keep putting on fake videos on tv news and the internet, we know they are fake , and all your people should switch off their tv the moment you guys bring it up”
Russia needs to play dirty. Every fake video? Russia exposes a Western politician’s crimes with kiddie porn or homosexuality. You watch the Nato politicians then tremble and stop the fake videos. Hit them where it hurts!
Even if Russia would expose them, soulless Western public would still be in denial
Love this idea. Exposing Hunter Biden should be the focus to shake out the American Administration!
– The Natoists achieved what they wanted; to put it in people’s minds that the Russians did it.
It not work well last time with “Russia Collusion”
Heard today the “on ground” “rEpOrTiNgz” of German public station NDR. It was driven on emotions and totally silents abounds the timeframe (30.03 to 02.04) and rigthout claim that it was Russian soldier
Interesting. I had been subscribing to the NY Times and posted some comments making Russia’s case for the SMO. Many of my comments appeared as posts but later were disappeared. I felt they were censoring me. I no longer subscribe to the NY Times. The Hill has discontinued commenting altogether, saying:
“The Hill has removed its comment section, as there are many other forums for readers to participate in the conversation. We invite you to join the discussion on Facebook and Twitter.”
When the U.S. government tells the media to censor material they deem “offensive,” the media must obey. All that’s left is the independent media. But I suspect they’ll be shut down next.
The incompetance of the Russian government regarding the sanctions offensive and the propaganda campaign of the west is far beyond tolerance. There is no excuse for this. A LOT of people should be fired and the course of action changed at once. It is a complete embarassment.
Plus, whiners and apologists for this disgraceful situation deserve to be rebuked. Russia’s credibility, reputation and competance are being shreded. Enemies emboldened, friends disheartened.
Almost every morning new example of Russian PR fumble ruin my day. In that moment I can subscribe to everything you wrote.
But then comes realization that Anglos excelence in luying has its deep roots in the system of hierarchical oppression that nurtured gossip and innuendo as preferable form of healthy aggression. It is ingrained in their children for centuries. This is the root of Western propaganda success.
In Russia and majority of the world, such behaviour is considered disgracefull. So the pool of psychopath-like PR geniuses is limited.
Ask yourself: If being leader, would
you approve PR campaign that requires killing of hundreds of our own, just to accuse (frame) opponents?
Well, they do. Repeatedly.
Now back on first thought. After morning rage caused by Russian “PR” subsides, I ask myself:
“Would I like to live in the country rulled by such elite, supported by such PR geniuses? Would anyone? ”
Do Anglos commoners like it? After all, they are the one closest to Source. Until real instigators are dethroned and put to trial, we won’t be able to know for sure.
I hope Russia will endure this horrible war until the rest of the world gain courage to join the fight.
My heart aches every time I see EU or Ukraine achieve a goal post against Russia
We all understand the media war and I am not worried about it as one can not suppress the truth for long
It is the complete economic war against Russia and a somewhat stalled military operation that is really worrying for Russia’s friends. Most of the countries including India will not dare to go against US secondary sanctions (US has not declared those yet like CAATSA on some of Russia’s exports)
I am sure Russia will win but it is seen as too soft when it come to retaliation especially against EU.
What is the need of giving multiple ultimatums to UKR in Mariupol and not following through, every other day RT publish that Russia has given another ultimatum for UKR to surrender or leave and UKR laugh it off.
Some dillydallying in ruble for gas as well
“What is the need of giving multiple ultimatums to UKR in Mariupol and not following through, every other day RT publish that Russia has given another ultimatum for UKR to surrender or leave and UKR laugh it off.”
That is true. I remember seeing Russians said that Ukrainian militants had to leave Mariupol by midnight March 23rd or March 24th, and that was their last chance. But now almost 2 weeks later they are still leaving corridors open for them.
However, now the Uks and “NATO officers from France, Germany, Britain and ‘neutral’ Sweden” are trapped at Azovstal and asking Russian troops to help them leave. I think Russia has been too soft and accommodating to the west and NATO for decades and it has only helped Russia’s enemies gain positions on Russia to what they have today.
But is it though?
To me it looks like it’s going by the Book (the real one) – they’ll even expose the evil empire to the whole world .
The sanctions only make Russia stronger,- because they are self- sufficient. The west actually did Russia a favor by enforcing them. Otherwise Russia might have drunk of cool-aid.
It has also happened today on YouTube to Alex Christoforou of ‘The Duran’.
His full video, on Rumble:
Where does it all end?
in 1933 all over again…no srsly i start thinking about migration to russia.
The question is: Is it about Ukraine at all?
The answer is: No and it’s getting more and more obvious.
You ask, “Where does it all end?”
Here’s the terrible plan:
“All the EU’s problems will be blamed on those “Asian subhumans” who have inadvertently been given such rich territory and do not share European liberal values. The U.S. and the British Commonwealth will watch with enthusiasm for the great European butchery. And it is, in all likelihood, almost inevitable.”
this guy is so charming.
The real ladies man, huh? :)
Thanks Gonzalo. Take care!
Have someone posted that video in other site? i want to see it
I was expecting Bucha, it has become part of the conflict tool kit for the empire. Gas attacks children laying all over the place screaming and of course crying survivors, cluster bombs, viagra charged rapists, and our old favorite weapons of mass destruction, it follows a script’. I guess if you were to ask if killing people for PR is worth it they would say yes it was. Prime time baby that is the paydirt. So we have another mass grave in Ukraine full of noncombatants. How convenient for the Actor and his neo nazi friends. I am sure the rabid NATO warmongers will take that ball and run with it. If I who live halfway around the world was expecting a false flag it is a given that Russia was as well. So what develops will be most likely violent and bloody. Zelensky has made another mistake because he is playing a life and death game now. He could walk away before and keep his stolen money but now this is uncertain. For the people laying in those graves it was not worth it they cry out for those who did this be exposed.
He actually can’t walk away now. All the money and real estate he has been bought with, owns him. He can’t do anything besides continue to “act” his part.
Words, words, words…..the smithing part being the most complicated. In the days of Bards and Kings, an improper smithing of words could get one behead….today is not quite as bloody, save for targeted battle field journalists, but being banned is more of a pain in the….hmm, neck.
It does come down to Terms of Service. Knowing what will get flagged for content, by complaint or algorithm is the key to avoid censorship. The content needs to be refined to meet the TOS.
Wait dear Sean,
“In the days of Bards and Kings, an improper smithing of words could get one behead… It does come down to Terms of Service.”
We still live in the days of Bards and Kings. Try tweeting the wrong thing in Czech Republic or UAE.. after rotting in their jails, some have considered a beheading a viable and more merciful alternative.
As for terms of service, it is a moving target in the hands of the Ministry of Truth. Tailored to the Narrative of the day. “Anything in violation of community guidelines and standards” etc… are so loosely defined, it is like law in the USA: anyone can be found in breach of something in the books if they are out to get you. It is Rules-based Order in practice.
In a way ‘rules based, move the goal posts’ but that’s the art of a true wordsmith, to articulate a position, while seeming faced with insurmountable odds. So yes I do understand speaking one’s mind in certain places can get one killed, I grew up in Belfast, you learn to mark your words…
So I said to the YouTuber that lives in my basement, ‘I guess you have to read the fine print in YouTube’s ‘terms of service’ not to get banned.’ He said no it’s right there nothing hidden. Doesn’t mean they can’t move the posts…..but then wordsmiths should never be static.
Check the 99 Račak “massacre” story that served for pre-text to the attack on Yugoslavia.
This is what they (propaganda) said at the time:
And this is what we know now…
Feels like we’re back to burning books or women who could read astronomy in the middle-ages.
Don’t you just love progressives!
Speaking of reading – I used to believe the story that the Norwegians needed schools to learn to read, even though I didn’t need that myself.
The reason for schooling was to make sure we got the right narrative- to put a stop to people thinking for themselves.
Go on Rumble.com – they won’t censor you.
The only thing which I do not agree with Lira is when he says “the west is more totalitarian than Russia”.
Question, is Russia totalitarian ? If yes, I would like to hear Gonzalo explanining why.Because this is what we hear from the NYT, WAPO or the BBC.
All government, by nature, is totalitarian. Man is a hierarchical animal.
Replying to Mr. Lira’s example: Believe it or not Youtube announced a couple of years ago that it is censoring flat earth videos:
there is ample evidence, much of it from the film rolls that the ‘atronots’ brought back, that the photos were taken on earth. there is a rule of science -among many rules concerning truth- that only ONE contradiction/error is required to prove the entire equation or narrative wrong. of course, we all would agree about a math error; it’s the narrative that gets us reacting without using reasoning. but the same rule applies.
If you are really intent on proving this, take the entire “production” of the Apollo 13 misadventure, which was supplied by NASA. Or, perhaps easier: look at the official stories about Apollo 8 and 10. Or, Surveyor 6. remember hearing “Genesis” read to us from outer space, Apollo 10, around x-mas?
lo siento: it was Apollo 8 where the men on board read passages from Gensis…x-mas eve, 1968. Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders were the first humans to leave the Earth and travel to the moon. They arrived at the moon, completed 10 orbits, and returned to Earth on December 27, 1968, allegedly. No photos were presented, far as I know.. -I do understand why the majority will never consider that it was a “production” rather than an event; but, I wanted to correct my mistake. The evidence given did not support NASA’S narrative -not so different from the events in Ukraine.-Joe
“Zelensky is an actor.” The Chinese media called the events in Bucha a staged and “cheap” attempt to discredit Russia. On the Phoenix TV channel, military observer and professor Song Zhongping questioned the information coming from Bucha.
I don’t get everything ok. Yes this is a war, not a wishfull dream. But when it started, it’s look like. But then everything unfinished. Looked like Russians are not capable as they look like before war.
I can’t connect, why they leave Kyiv and surroundings? Don’t you (or someone in this blog) told that, the war of attire begins. And then they leave.
Day by Day their development is slowing. But time is precious. What the hell those troops waiting outside the border? Why Moscow buying time?
Russia stated that, any country sends tanks, plane are considered that they also joining the war.
Now check republic decides to send Tank, some tiny country think of sending S-300. If Russia don’t respond, then UK decides to set no fly zone, US decides to send aircraft carrier. And what happened? Russia use nuke?
I don’t think so. May be they decides to start 2nd faze of denazification and disarmament after anothe 8-10 years.
The west already declare war, but Moscow respond casually. That’s not the warfare at modern times.
I am waiting for your detailed analysis (I m following you almost 8 years and your analysis and prediction are marvellous, I know you also disappointed in some point, though..) or a bold step, attack quickly
Ukraine has lost everything. “They have the choice of giving up or getting destroyed in place.”
If this is true, then there is no reason for Putin to settle for just half of Ukraine. Why limit himself to the east? Nobody can stop him from taking it all.
Insurgency? Leaving a rump state in the West, supplied by NATO and urged on to insurgency already trained for, is a recipe for endless insurgency. NATO would wish for that, even if it is crushing defeat for Ukraine itself.
Putin can’t avoid insurgency by leaving NATO in control of half of Ukraine. That ship sailed when he was pushed into war to limit NATO expansion. He won’t now hand over NATO expansion into half, if he can avoid it.
It is now all gone. It is only a question of how many are driven out Syria-style in order to create the equivalent of Assad’s government.
Biden and Blinken over reached, and it has blown up in their faces. The sanctions are causing trouble elsewhere in the world, as noted in the next article below. The combination of disaster in Ukraine and disaster elsewhere ought to deflate the rush of rally-to-the-war promoted by Biden’s political supporters in the press.
Russia does not want Ukraine. It can’t afford to deal with the problems of the nation of Ukraine. FWIW, I’ve followed this crisis since 2013 and I believe Russia did everything it could to avoid taking Ukrainian territory. Before the coup, Russia made a deal with the Ukrainian government to greatly increase the rent on the Russian naval base at Sevastopol. At the same time Russia was building a fallback naval base in Abkhazia.
At some point, the Russian government made the decision to seize Crimea, and the mission was unbelievably successful. It went off so well that I believe even the Russian government was surprised. Putin made a speech (of which there is probably a video floating around), in which I think he got carried away a bit. Igor Strelkov and his associates saw that speech as permission to kick off (or accelerate) the Donbass uprising.
The Donbass uprising became the stuff of heroism and legend. Elements of the Russian establishment decided to damp it down. I seem to recall some of the oligarchs were involved. Strelkov was ‘advised’ to leave Donbass, although his plan continued to be executed by the Donbass forces for a week or more. Some of you may remember that they were advancing on Mariupol and were told to stand down.
Now, of course, Russia will have to permanently control (in whatever formal arrangement) more territory than the Russian government would like.
By the way, I obtained lots of this information from Saker’s blog and I’m sure he has it archived somewhere. I am writing from memory and probably omitted something important.
But U.S. was already installing bioweapons labs in Ukraine from 2010 at least, and U.S. has been heavily building up bases in Romania and Bulgaria in recent years and getting active in the Black Sea, so Ukraine was on the U.S. menu, and U.S./NATO were continuing to push forward so a clash with Russia was eventually inevitable. And without Donbass resistance, Ukraine would have been shoehorned into NATO or poised to be NATO by now, and U.S. would have put missiles and eventually worked its way up to nukes. Then what would Russia had done. The fact that Ukrainian helicopters, flying very low have been able to bomb Russia, plus that some of Ukraine’s missiles have hit Russian territory is a wake up call and shows that it has been sleeping to much while U.S./NATO has been creeping up on Russia.
The fact that Ukrainian helicopters, flying very low have been able to bomb Russia, plus that some of Ukraine’s missiles have hit Russian territory is a wake up call …
It is not one swallow that brings in summer.
We need to look at the big picture. Sometimes only looking at the granular level will affect our judgement. The war-making capacity of the Ukraine has been reduced to almost nothing — industrial plants, depots, etc. The AFU has no reserves and is incapable of making meaningful manouvres. Russia can attack targets in the Ukraine at will. The Ukraine cannot even contemplate taking back Crimea or the LDNR into its fold, much less taking action to do so — this is a major objective of the SMO. The Ukraine’s economy is tanking. The brain drain is accelerating. It has millions of IDPs. The Ukraine’s backers are gung-ho, dispensing weapons right, left and centre and money (mostly loans) at the moment but only until the unintended consequences of the stupid sanctions bite and they start facing internal civil unrest; at that time, the Ukraine will be the least of their problems, in fact it will become a liability, an albatross around their neck.
Russia has been and is being demonised in the West, that’s true; but only in the West. China has remained steadfast in supporting Russia. African countries tacitly back Russia. A delegation from the Arab countries has just visited Moscow to meet with Lavrov. Pakistan, an erstwhile US ‘ally’ has changed tack. It is business as usual for South Korea.
Ukraine would have been shoehorned into NATO…U.S. would have put missiles. … Then what would Russia had done.
Attack the Ukraine, even Nato. I’m not being blithe. This is what a country facing an existential threat would do, especially one with the military means to do it.
Russia underestimated the animosity of the West towards it. In 2010, despite Putin’s 2007 Munich speech and Georgia, it was still optimistic of working with the West for the common good. But things fundamentally changed in 2014 — Russia realised its fears of a hostile West becoming manifest. It changed its attitude culminating in the ‘Ultimatum’ to the US and Nato in December last year, and the SMO on 24 February this year.
He is suspended too. Does anyone know if he has other accounts?
I tried to post a link to the B___a video for other folks and they weren’t able to watch it yesterday.
Probably time to go to Odysee or Rumble or one of the other truly free platforms.
Ha ha, I agree, the earth is not flat.
As far as the moon landing, I keep my options open. I think it could well be fake, but I am not sure.
I have learned one thing though, I know that whatever the USA says is a lie. That has stood me in good stead for the last many years!
As of 9AM 4.5.22 Google has also banned search results for Russian Ministry of Defense.
Canadian state media has simply moved on to other related questions.
So, it is no longer of interest if the false flag narrative is challenged on the basis of facts; the top story now is “How Putin and Russian commanders could avoid war crime prosecutions” – i.e., the allegations are treated as facts and these “facts’ become the basis for further allegations.
Kurt Vonnegut: “And so it goes.”
Russia – as well as the US – are not signatories to the ICC, so what charges can be brought before an unrecognized court? What would the use of bringing such charges be?
To try someone in absentia seems a bit undemocratic, but that might be what could happen. Doesn’t affect anything, but looks good on social media, I suppose.
What a farce this all is. I am astounded at the propaganda from the west. It has reached ridiculous proportions.
Gonzalo, thanks for all your posts.
The issue is partly, as you say, that the propaganda system and the interests behind it don’t want people to know the truth, especially when they are spreading lies.
What they really want is to manipulate people’s emotional responses, because it’s easier to drum up support that way than by opening up a proper, rational discussion.
So during the pandemic they whipped up fear so no-one questioned the mandates, vaccines or the economic realities of it.
Now they whip up hatred against Russia and Russians to keep the insanity in Ukraine going and, I fear, to fully Nazify Europe and North America.
I’m in Canada and see it happening here.
Anyway, I agree with you that the West is going in a totalitarian direction. It supports the endless war that keeps the US political, military and investment classes rich, at the expense of everyone else. It will facilitate the crackdown that’s coming against any dissent that might materialize here in the West…. in case they fail to keep the political space here utterly mindless.
Of course the UN is proving to be worthless.
If you haven’t read the NATO document on Cognitive Warfare here’s a link.
I think the Saker might already have posted it but am not sure.
several years ago, discussing conspiracies, i complained that the longer i lookes at them, the more sure i was the narrative was fault.
there are many i have no doubts whatsoever.
“what about the moonlanding?” asked a friend “no idea, never looked at it, but the way things are, it wouldnt surprise me at all” says i
“no way moon landings are fake, eveeyone saw them on tv”
hmm “challenge accepted”
and so i started looking at materials easily available in the internet at the time, and one in particular “wag the moondogie”.
well, now i am as sure about moon landing hoax as jfk, 911, etc…
there are many points to be made, but one is inescapable even now. the brazier company that won the bid for the moon suit (not that far fetched right) and the moonlander (say what?)… both of which where lost and never replicated.
even now, 60 years after, if you ask any space agency if we have a suit to go to the moon, they all say we are still about 10 years away from the required technology…
case to ask, are there no more brazier companies nowadays?
Yeah,the Wagging the Moondoggie is a pretty good investigation into the moon landings,particuarly the bit about the Van Allen belt.
I find the behavior of the moon-landing astronauts at the press conference very odd – they look more like schoolboys caught cheating, than conquerors of space. They couldn’t even tell what the saw out there.
I was only ten at the time so and not into the space thingy at all, so I never paid much attention.
This is going off-topic. Please take to the Cafe. Mod.
Good report on Dmitry Medvedev:
“‘Denazification will have to be comprehensive and verifiable exactly as it was in defeated Germany after World War II, which is the only way to ensure “the peace of future generations of Ukrainians themselves and the opportunity to finally build an open Eurasia from Lisbon to Vladivostok” like Russia envisions being in everyone’s interests. Former Russian President and current Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev shared another informative post on his Telegram channel, this time concisely explaining the denazification goal of his country’s ongoing special military operation in Ukraine. This noble objective has been much-maligned by the US-led Western Mainstream Media (MSM), which gaslights its targeted audience by falsely claiming that no such thing as fascism even remotely exists in Ukraine under its Jewish President. Medvedev began by reminding everyone of Kiev’s spree of consistently discredited psy-ops: the “Ghost of Kiev”; the claim of someone downing a Russian drone with a cucumber jar; the Snake Island incident; the Mariupol maternity and children’s hospital bombing; and now Bucha. He then explained how these were all manufactured by a combination of PR agencies, troll factories, and “NGOs”. According to him, all these information warfare provocations are being pushed to dehumanize Russia in the world’s eyes and advance the anti-Russian ideology of Ukrainian fascism. About that, the former Russian President said that it started out academically just like German fascism but then became too powerful for even high-culture figures to control once it started inevitably inspiring bloodlust from its followers. This was brought about by radical historical revisionism that in this context sought to deny the centuries-long documented evidence of the historical unity between Russians and Ukrainians that President Putin wrote extensively about last summer and instead misportray them as eternal enemies. This had disastrous consequences for everyone involved. The end result is that post-independence Ukraine nowadays teaches its people this fascist version of false history that also only emphasizes the role of that movement’s top figures across the last century instead of those that had nothing to do with this ideology. The proliferation of fascist symbolism across contemporary Ukrainian society also isn’t just a supposedly harmless so-called “aesthetic” like Medvedev says that the US-led West tries to insincerely downplay it as, but proof of how deeply ingrained fascism has become in that country over the past three decades. This suggests that President Putin’s denazification goal cannot be solely achieved on the battlefield since the only way to sustainably achieve this outcome is to change the modern-day Ukrainian consciousness that he described as “bloody” and “full of false myths”. In other words, denazification will have to be comprehensive and verifiable exactly as it was in defeated Germany after World War II, which is the only way to ensure “the peace of future generations of Ukrainians themselves and the opportunity to finally build an open Eurasia from Lisbon to Vladivostok” like Russia envisions being in everyone’s interests'”.
Mr. Lira is a very, very brave video-journalist who risks his life everyday inside the belly of the Ukrainian beast. I have yet to see him wear any type of protective clothing e.g., body armor or discuss having access to a pistol or revolver for self-defense. He shows the world his indefatigable courage by not wavering from his personal commitment as a reporter of history as it unfolds daily in front of him. The Nazi’s could burst into his apartment at any time and cause abominable pain and suffering upon his person but he is undeterred in his mission to prevail, to record for posterity facts in evidence, the gold standard of truth.
He is without any doubt, a hero for humanity.
At the 4:06 mark of Lira’s broadcast he said, “They only censor you if you’re right; they only censor you if you are speaking things that they are afraid are true.”
I would add “they” (those in power) are not afraid of the truth but desire to obfuscate and redirect away from the known verity and hide it under a cloak of duplicity.
Our Saker is also such a hero, along with Smoothiex12, and Bernard of MOA. Like three great horses, this Troika rides above the dark clouds of malevolence, unafraid to punch through the black agitprop and expose the wicked who pull propaganda levers that spread deceit and hatred down upon the ignorant masses.
Contrasted with Gonzolo, they are far from harm’s way but could still be swept up at anytime by the accusatory finger of power and vilified as liars and agents of anti-American values. The Troika is dangerous to the Matrix, all three know it yet they press on. We of the congregation are fortunate to partake in this great undertaking that wipes away the opacity of falsehoods and gives us a clear view inside the monstrosity of hypocritical-speak.
Here is a good primer for “US speak”. Once you see the word meaning you understand the “Empire of lies” way of speaking:
Oligarch | Entrepreneur
Authoritarian | Law and order
Secret police | Undercover cop
Suppress dissent | Suppress riots
Gulag | prison labor
Invasion | Intervention
War crimes | Collateral damage
Weapon | military aid
I would love to see that scum Marcon lose
What do you guys think of Le Pen chances of winning?.
It is now 48.5 to 51.5 for a runoff, which is pretty close.
May be Le Pen win is what we all need for EU to break.
Le Pen was in favor of leaving EU and NATO though she has softened her stance lately
Russia needs to execute Vladimir Zelensky for his war crimes. This was stated by URA.RU State Duma deputy from United Russia Alexander Borodai.
Earlier, Ukrainian President Zelensky allowed himself a number of rude, harsh and offensive statements against Russia during his speech at the UN Security Council. In particular, he compared Russia with the ISIS terrorist group (banned in the Russian Federation). The State Duma deputy believes that Zelensky should be sentenced to death.
“Besides being a clown, Zelensky is also a war criminal. Russia needs to catch him and execute him. A fair and honest court, objectively and to the fullest extent of the law, should sentence him to death,” Borodai said.
Russia has to stop putting herself in the defensive in occasions such as this, as if it was an accused of a serious offence in front of a Criminal Court, and bending over backwards in front of her US NATO accusers as if if they were some kind of supreme or divine authority, the conscience and the voice of mankind as they may see themselves but who are seen by the Global South, with 90% of mankind, as the predatory imperials that have brought so much misery to them. This really bothers me, that every time the US NATO gang falsely accused Russia of having done something evil which has been many times their own work, the Kremlin sees the need to clear itself in front of the world. This is not needed. I insist, this is not needed, as the Global South knows well what they are dealing with, they have been dealing themselves with the same truants for centuries so they know where all comes from. Surfing Spanish speaking YT videos I noticed in the Comments columns that practically no one in Latin America believes this story, most call it a false flag, and they didn’t need being told of that, they simply know too well their Northern neighbours and of what they are capable. Like Gonzalo Lira, they have good memories also. And I have no doubt that in Africa, the ME, and Asia the story is the same. The only people dumb, clueless and manipulable enough to believe all these false stories are those of their own constituency, mostly White Europeans in Western Europe and the U.S., people who would believe that Putin is a Klingon if their government and their MSM tells them so and who wouldn’t believe that Bucha is another false flag if the Ukrainian themselves issued another video showing how the montage was done. In the end this is the only people that would eventually need convincing by the Russian government, and that has proven to be over and over again to be an impossible task. Who needs those morons on his side anyway, not Russia, not the rest of the world.
“practically no one in Latin America believes this story,”
I keep giving the same answer to those who ask me about this kind of “false flags” >>>”We, in the Spanish speaking world, have been dealing with the Anglos for 400 years. We have known each other very well for a long time and we know what are they capable of in terms of crimes” (in those 400 years I include Spain/England)
I live in Western Europe. Here is already Orwell 1984.
Moon landing WAS FAKE. Anyone who is convinced rockets got man to and from the surface of the moon should not dismiss today’s show. There seem to be some glaring pieces of evidence which are beyond dispute that cast massive doubt over whether the Apollo technology actually landed on the lunar surface. That is not to say there may be a secret space programme using something other than rockets which has travelled much further. Are we to believe that the rocket technology developed from the 1940’s is still the only thing capable of getting a vehicle into space? Were the Apollo and Space Shuttle programmes just something to put on public show while the elite continued anti-gravity development in secret? Mainstream documentaries on such issues do not present the best evidence and are not independently produced therefore cannot be trusted.

The expulsions of Russian diplomats: this is not the time for diplomacy.
There is a time for everything. As unpleasant as it may seem, this is not the time for diplomacy. Despite Russia’s efforts to cling against all odds, against its very interest, to diplomatic mechanisms, it’s time to fight. That of diplomacy will come back later, when one of the parties considers having lost. In the meantime, diplomats are used as ammunition and if they don’t know how to fight, they will cause their country to lose. The Atlanticist world has made this clear by expelling Russian diplomats, denying them the status of diplomats, making them spies. France follows the movement and announces mass expulsions.
The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs said yesterday, France is entering the dance of the expulsions of Russian diplomats:
“France decided this evening to expel many Russian personnel with diplomatic status assigned to France whose activities are contrary to our security interests.
This action is part of a European approach.
Our first responsibility is always to ensure the safety of French people and Europeans.”
It would be 35 diplomats. In this, France emphasizes its allegiance to Atlanticism and follows the Baltic countries, Germany and, above all, other European countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic or Slovakia, clearly the message: Russia is no longer a friendly state, it is actually presented as a terrorist state, so it has no right to have diplomats, as its journalists were reclassified as propagandists. The mere presence of Russian diplomats in the Atlantic satellite space clearly poses a security problem, posed not by diplomats (which would be absurd), but by “spies”.
That the satellite countries of the United States take this step is regrettable, but logical. For Russia to cling to diplomacy, while the conflict is not over, is counterproductive. The time for diplomacy will come, when the active phase of the conflict will no longer be of interest to one of the parties, that is, when it recognizes its defeat. In the meantime, diplomats must be combative, because now is not the time for compromise. In Ukraine and in Europe, they understood it perfectly. Ukraine is really waging a war against Russia and, through her, the Atlanticist world. Russia wants to stay within the framework of a postmodernist operation with a military connotation. This discrepancy is perfectly illustrated by the statements of Lavrov, which leave one wondering:
“Negotiations between Russia and Ukraine are proceeding quite intensively,” Lavrov said.
Moscow, he said, hopes that the Ukrainian side in the negotiations will be guided by its own interests and will not listen to advisers.”
Russian diplomacy is very good in times of peace, as long as the conflict remains political, that it can be settled by a verbal contest. But since the slide into military conflict, Russian diplomacy has not been reoriented, it is increasingly out of step.
How can we seriously talk about Ukraine defending its own interests, when the country is completely in control and its ruling elites are only asking for greater submission to NATO and the EU? How can we seriously talk about negotiations, when the acts and declarations of the Atlanticist countries, which support Ukraine, go towards a real-time rearmament of Ukraine, towards an increase in the military presence of NATO in Europe from the East, towards military attacks on Russian territory? Refusing war does not make it possible to avoid it, just as refusing conflict for 8 years did not allow Russia to avoid its conflagration. On the contrary, showing political weakness is the best way to provoke a military conflagration: only the weak are attacked. And the force must not be demonstrated only militarily, it also requires political force, a unity of the political elites, which is largely lacking in Russia, unlike Ukraine and the Atlanticist satellite countries. And therein lies its greatest weakness.
PS: Poland declares that it agrees to harbor American nuclear weapons on its territory.
Your comment is spot on. While Ukrainian diplomats are wasting time of Russians (they even symbolically message disrespect with disorderly attires), Zelensky is more and more bellicose, West more and more threatening, more and more arms are shipped to Ukraine, war crimes ever more brutal. Finish Donbass grouping, only then negotiate.
On essential controversial social issues, imperial western totalitarianism has consisted, lately, in admitting and tolerating only ONE narrative, the one power intends to impose in society at large. Hence, any alternate narrative that questions that unique narrative, putting in doubt its validity, is no more admitted, is therefore immediately censored then rejected.
There was a time when such issues not only could be discussed, they were often debated and evaluated on merit. No more!
Paradoxically, THAT is genuine, unmitigated progress… whenever Power becomes so terrified by truth that it cannot even hear it any longer. Let us then be patient, let us give time to time. Silenced truth in the end always emerges, and prevails. So as always, future generations will confirm.
I wonder when they ban Jimmy Dore. He didn’t bought that Bucha fake, not even for a second.
A terrified 48-year old woman, Irina Abramova stands in front of her house. Behind her are two rescue workers placing a man’s body in a black bodybag. The dead man is Irina’s husband Oleg Abramov.
On March 5th the Russians came in and shot at the house, telling everyone to come out. “We are Russians, we came to liberate you.”
After the family came out, the “Russians” killed the husband.
The body was lying on the street the whole time (one month) and they only moved him next to the house when they found out that “they” (the Russians) had left.
The first problem with the story is that the body is fresh, with pink hands and skin. It has not been dead for one month.
The house caught fire in the incident. Everything inside was burnt, papers, documents, clothing. Irina and her father complain that they have nothing to wear, except the clothes they had on them. They do not explain how they have managed one month without a house or a change of clothes.
I now suspect that the Ukrainians shot every male inhabitant of Bucha between the ages 16 and 60. I do not think we will find many among witnesses or survivors.
Starting to get really scared. About the gag system, algorythmic strangling, media manipulation, and all that bravenewworldism encircling my children and grandkids if any.
What we we and our predecessors fight for?
Don’t be. Now all who have eyes to see and ears to hear, get the message. If or when the crack-down comes, we are able to tell those around us why. Regard it as an honor!
Did Gonzalo say that the – possibly fake – US moon landings were unmistakably real, like the globularity of the Earth? I think he did.
Ah well, absolutely everyone has their blind spots.
Literally, the only meticulously rational position to take on that subject – the alleged landings – is that it’s clearly an open question, since there are now such masses of careful, detailed investigation which cast serious doubt on the whole official narrative.
Also, we shall be able to know more certainly soon, once Russia or China send robot landers to the right spot in the Sea of Tranquility, or overfly it closely enough with state-of-the-art cameras recording what’s on the ground. My bet remains: that such looking-to-see will find none of the space junk that the alleged landings left behind, because the Americans never went.
If I have to, I’ll accept that I was wrong easily enough, since I’m firmly in the ‘Don’t really know for sure’ camp. But until we get confirmation one way or the other, the only carefully exact conclusion is that – despite all the outraged attempted debunking of the scepticism about the alleged landings – they’re still not really proven to be authentic.
Something to think about Gonzalo: How do you KNOW – to the point of staking your life on it if need be – that the landings really happened? Have you seen any ultimately-conclusive evidence, over and above the well-upholstered official narrative (the sort of fairy-tale which the Western lie-machine is so experienced at creating, like – er – Bucha, for example)?
The answers, if we’re being strict about it, is: We don’t; and No.
We’ll know when Russia or China offers comprehensive close-range pictures of the alleged landing site, and we see, or don’t see, the space junk that’s supposed to be abandoned there.
As the global paradigm-shift that’s happening right now proceeds, it’s predictable that one or other of the two main inheritor power-centres, Moscow or Beijing, will feel confident enough soon to show us what’s really there, even if they’ve known for a while that there’s nothing, no junk, no boot-prints, no flag, but they’ve kept quiet about it until the time is right.
Until that time, it’s really not wise to offer the – alleged – landings as an example of a cast-iron, irrefutably-established truth.
How to now? Because even Russia, the space competitor of the west accepts it as true.
Not quite about the censorship, but for you information a sitrep of the situation in battlefield April 5th.
So Russia has now emptied all the northern Ukraine east of Kiev.
Frantic filming of new “mass murders” is apparently going on in abandoned cities.
Summary of hostilities for April 5, 2022 from Vladislav Coal
Briefly: the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Chernihiv and Sumy regions, the advance in the south of Izyum and in the area of Severodonetsk. The ongoing assault on Mariupol.
🎯Chernihiv-Slobozhansky direction – troops withdrawn.
🎯The Kharkiv direction is unchanged: the front line in the Kharkiv region lies along the settlements of Zolochiv – Russian Lozovaya – Tsirkuny – Olkhovka – Chuguev – Zmiev – Balakleya.
🏹The northern flank of the arc (from Balakleya to Popasnaya) – in the Izyum region , advancement: the village of Brazhkovka was liberated in the direction of Barvenkovo . There is a cracking of the Ukrainian defense in the villages of Suligovka and Dolgenkoye to reach Slavyansk. To the west, the front to Lozovaya is located in the Barabashevka area, to the east to Svyatogorsk – in the area of Krasny Oskol, the Ukrainians destroyed the dam on the Oskol River. In the Severodonetsk agglomeration , the cleanup of the Rubizhnoye industrial zone and the pulling in of the southern, eastern and northeastern suburbs of Severodonetsk continue. Fighting continues in the Popasna area, on April 4, the depot building was taken, as well as breaking into the Ukrainian defense onBakhmutka: the gradual squeezing of the enemy from positions near Novotoshkovka, in the area of the 29th checkpoint and neighboring positions continues.
🏹Central Front (from Popasnaya to Marinka) – fighting continues for Maryinka (and Novomikhailovka to the south) and in the Avdeevka area ( Novoselovka, Troitskoye). Novobakhmutovka was released earlier.
🏹The southern flank of the arc (from the Dnieper River to Maryinka) is the front line from the Dnieper to Velikaya Novoselka without changes. There is still no information about progress in the area of Velyka Novoselka (the village of Blagodatnoe) and towards the Zaporozhye-Donetsk highway.
🎯Mariupol cauldron – fighting continues in the city, detailed map. The Ukrainian grouping in the Primorsky region is surrounded, in the northeast there is a significant advance after the surrender of the Ukrainian marines.
🎯The Kherson-Nikolaev direction is unchanged: fighting is taking place on the administrative borders of the Kherson region opposite Nikolaev and Krivoy Rog along the Black Sea – Aleksandrovka – Snigirevka – Velikaya Aleksandrovka – the Dnieper River.
Only two weapons of mass financial destructions left for Russia(as normaly no sane people will use nukes.. in theory).
– Total embargo on everything RU for the ‘unfriendly countries'(including gas, oil, uranium etc..). Sales will continue for the rest of the World.They sanctionned coal, gold and diamonds coming this week.US is organizing RU default even with big risk for their western fin system. They will double down(personal zio neocons nuland/blinken + tribe in Tel aviv vendetta).They already decided WWIII (they believe they will win).
It is not milit/ denazification, or Donbass or UKR anymore, this is world war against Russia untill total destruction after the biggest psyop operation of this planet history(more false flags comming, real one, very bigs not a few deads in bucha).RU must act ”decisively ” and fast enough.Stop chirurgical war with many RU losses for nothing.
-If not enough, letting the West know by reliable signals in RU, that considering the West declared total war on Russia, Russia is about to do the same officialy(targets with non nuke weapons, very strategic sites in the EU, then the UK and if not enough in the US..)
Markets will be taken by surprise and really totaly collapse this time(including bonds and stocks), plunge protection team will not be sufficient at all, they will have to close markets.UE will not survive 3 months with gas in the 10.000 (iso 220 for Hungary or 295 for Serbia, 200 for China..), oil worldwide at brent/wti 250/300 usd, wheat at never seen before prices..millions of migrants from Africa and the ME will invade Europe, backlash will be massive, EU regime will fall one after another, inflation will become hyperinflation…which will mean total ruin for the EU/UK complex with some delay for the US.They will surrender before this happens.
As western politicos, institutions parasites and banks+oligarchs ONLY care about their wealth/money/confort be sure they will regime change the Biden Bojo Von der leyen Macron Scholz clique very FAST.
It is risky but the only option, otherwise this war will last years(that is officialy their plan, stated yesterday by UK Mfa), with hundreds of billions of weapons sent to Ukraine if necessary…and RU will lose it by attrition.They will fight via their ukies proxy till the last ukrainian, they don’t care about ukies or Ukraine or even eastern Europeans.
They just use them temporarily as canon fodder for P R/ com reasons.
Only total occupation or anexation of ALL of Ukraine will give RU security, but we all know it is not going to happen, RU is too weak for western pundits and politicos with ‘light wars’, ‘slow wars’, ‘idleb 2.0’, ‘humanitarians corridor’, ‘no counter sanctions from hell’ , ‘wagner massacred by hundreds near the Syrian oil fields’, they only love Russian deads they don’t even hide it now etc…They will only double down.
Very sad but true.
I agree with your comments & believe that Russia should warn Western Nations one Last time that Any Country sending Weapons to Ukraine will themselves be targeted. This is a must happen as I also agree that Russia will be crushed if they let current situation continue. All exports that are essential to the Enemy must be totally restricted. Time is short & Russia must act decisively.
Here in Brazil, a (at least nominal) charter member of the BRICS alliance, it´s not just the “social media”, but also the mass market TV, press, etc. which seem to have fallen for the fascist / NATO narrative. The national networks ( Globo, Band, Record and SBT ) all parrot the Western version. Worst of all, the majority of the “povão” (ordinary people) appear to have fallen for it, at least for the moment.
Can you watch the Argentinean CN5, specifically Victofr hugo Morales every night at 7-8 PM? I don’t agree with any his leftist opinions and idiotic worship of grifter Cristina Kirschner but on the Ukrania-Russia conflict he has is right.
This greek guy was reporting the same story from Veteranstoday
Its not the society, that is afraid of the truth, it’ the tiny minority in power.
And ” Twitter Appoints Elon Musk To Board Of Directors ”
There’s a pretty good summary, which shows weak points of Ukraine’s version of what happened in Bucha. https://youtu.be/Fg0qjOfS_XM
Sofar nobody explained away the story of sattelite images of maxar that show bodies in te street of Bucha before the russians left. Tell me if you know how to acces the sattelite data feom maxar and examine them. If this is a false flag what role is maxar and the sattelite images playing ? I do want to know the truth. Prejudice and assumptions lead nowhere.
In Libya, there was a no flight zone to avoid the massacre of civilians by Gaddafi’s airforce. An anonymous and trustworthy source announced that such mass murdering was planned. The UNSC accepted it and Russia did not vetoed it. The French and English planes gave to the rebels air support with Obama’s benediction. They were efficient enough to allow the rebels to fight on office time (8.00 – 17.00) and go back into offensive.
Obama threatened the SAA the same treatment if they used chemical weapons. In other words, if the SAA used those weapons, the rebels knew they would receive the same air support or more. With 200 official death, the Ghouta massacre happened. I heard some noises about mass kidnapping from civilian in the Lattakie region some days before. I forgot who got cold feet just before the air bombing. Several other chemical attacks happened after that with some bombing. It became a joke : “When the SAA is winning with conventional weapons and seriously on the offense, it feels the urge to use its chemical weapons on some random civilians with no part in the fightings so it has to stop the offensive right there.”
I do not have the slightest proof about The Who did it but I can’t stop thinking about the pattern above. To me, it fits with the Bucha massacre.
I have learned to download YouTube videos immediately, precisely for the reason you mention.
They are not censoring in Russia.
People in the West do NOT KNOW THAT.
They were told for 2 decades now that “Russia is censoring the media” fabrication. No other message was allowed in the media. So they believe it.
They believe it to the point many ASK FOR CENSORSHIP with an argument of “As Russia, our enemy, does it, we cannot remain defenceless so must do it too!”.
Reality does not come to the fore at all at this debate. It is not allowed to. And that is PRECISELY the point of why censorship is used. It is to prevent reality to be known.
