First, a video from our heroic information warriors:
Then realize this:
Then look at this:
This is a satellite view of Snake Island AFTER the Russian either killed all the Ukie martyrs or evacuated the Ukie traitors (you pick).
And, finally, the commentary by Andrei Maryanov:
They invent a “story” of some defiant ukie grunts (long since debunked), and now, by showing some MLRS (Grad most likely) salvo, they claim the sinking of Vasily Bykov patrol ship. By MLRS no less)). “In accordance to reports”, without mentioning, of course, that these are not “reports” but propaganda fake by ukies and their masters. Of course, no video or photographic evidence of sinking of Vasily Bykov is provided. Of course, it is not provided.But this whole BS, together with hundreds of Russia’s combat aircraft “destroyed” and thousands upon thousands of Russkies killed on the battlefield, exists only in the inflamed imagination of the US “journalists”, who, apart from being whores (sorry, whores, for comparing you to US propaganda–I know, it is a huge insult to whores) and the brainwashed Western public which is utterly illiterate on such matters as operations of combat fleets and basic targeting. Obviously, the destruction of the moving target (ships do move in the sea and do not really stop during combat) by MLRS in the absence of targeting (most ukie radar, including those along the coast of the Black Sea are gone now) is something out of fantasy or cheap war-gaming on Commodore computer. Obviously for morons from ABC it is unknown that MLRS ukies have are classic “area impact” weapons designed only to work at the spread out ground targets based on accurate targeting.No doubt, the United States may try to provide targeting to ukies (you see–I am going now into a full blown “what if” BS scenario), but the main issue here is that the Black Sea Fleet currently completely blocked the 404 coast and with it it also brought to bear some damn effective AD ranging from Fort at RKR Moskva to Shtil on pr. 11356 frigates for which slow ballistic MLRS rockets are an easy target and no ship of the Black Sea Fleet operates out of the AD areas of the task group. At this stage one can only do a facepalm and admit that the West cannot even provide a believable BS. Not surprising, once one looks at the “elites” Western “education” provide for this kind of psyops. Recall, I already discussed this issue before. They are simply that incompetent and have no grasp of modern warfare, especially involving issues of C4ISR.

I have just watched Lt. Genetal Hodges on Fox, saying that the Russians are about to exhaust their ammo 😂.
“Ammunition exports to the United States are only a small percentage of the GDP of the Russian Federation, but Russian origin ammo makes up a large part of the American ammunition supply.”
I used to enjoy picking up Tula steel-cased .223 for range practice. A little on the smoky side, but good stuff – accurate and inexpensive. Of course, I’ll never see that or the Mariinsky Theatre again I suppose…
Good thing Biden banned the importation of Russian ammo to the USA or the Russian army would be all out. (sarcasm) This is so stupid. During the last big run on ammo in the USA, after Biden rigged the USA election, the only ammo you could get in the USA was Tula and all the other Russian brands.
The Russian ammo companies turn out bullets like popcorn. They never run out. The day the Russians run out of ammo is when the earth no longer exists. Geez. The stupidity of some of these ex military people. They will say anything on TV to make a dollar.
They are complete idiots on TV. I am sure he has all the manufacture, storage, and capacity accurately noted, plus the amount of expenditure. And some say this is more than half the Russian army. I am guessing then Russia proper is completely defenseless. This video is pure propaganda, but sometimes you wonder if these idiots bathe in it so frequently that they believe in it too.
I am sure that Russia has plenty of soldiers left to guard it from all directions. The more so as defence nowadays is not a matter of detachments standing on cliffs and beaches waiting to see an enemy fleet heave into view.
Instead, men sit comfortably in control rooms watching radar (and other) detection systems, ready if necessary to dispatch terrifying missiles against any approaching attacker. If there is any way of entering Russia other than by land, sea, or air I would like to hear of it. (I don’t think the US Space Force has yet mastered the art of dropping soldiers from orbit, as in Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers”).
By land they must come through neighbouring countries, but only after sailing from the USA. The ships can be sunk with enormous ease. By sea, the ships can be sunk with enormous ease. By air, Russia’s defences are superb.
Because Russia would go to war and not have enough ammo to fight, and couldn’t make its own. They’re making up more nonsense. Means they are failing.
Isn’t Hodges one of the incompetent generals who led the Afghan failure?
He should be analyzing his own army’s failures and mistakes, and lack of many things.
Perhaps he is using projection by taking into account the US failures and placing them over the Russian side as if they would conduct themselves the same.
Dear Corporate Media:
For your Russia/national security analysis/commentary articles and TV segments, find literally anyone other than the freaks who lied America into the Iraq War that killed a million human beings.
impressive, how many lies in the western media. Which part of the sentence:
“In nuclear war, all the inhabitants of the planet will die, including the world leaders”, Macron, Schulz, Biden, Kamala, Bozo, don’t you understand?
Are they not achieving this? So why are they smiling on camera? Do they have a plane waiting to fly to the Moon or Mars? Shouldn’t they be desperate?
Inconceivable and unforgivable such stupidity of Western leaders. They are living in a bubble made of steel!!!
They are leaving in a bubble made of lies….
the world will know when the Russians runs out of ammo. there will have lots of nukes left so what is it for?
when it goes flying to the skies, the west would have no time to pray…
“As martyrs, we will go to heaven,” he promised. “And they will just croak because they won’t even have time to repent.”
Biden in 1997:
“The only thing that can provoke Russia into a hostile and vigorous response is the expansion of NATO to the Baltic states.”
I got a better one for you:
“I’m really good at killing people.” — Obama (2013)
NO ONE has even dared to suggest that this monster be stripped of his Nobel Peace Prize.
People buy into it, that’s the scary part. I guess it’s all part of the plan? “Not only are ruskis evil and cruel, they are incompetent as well”. Similar to colonial-times racism.
Sadly most people still react with their age-old ape instincts. When trouble threatens, stick with your group and absolutely never stray from near its centre. Always comply with what the others are doing. You absolutely need a strong leader whose orders are obeyed immediately and to the letter. Anyone who dissents or differs is a traitor, and should be killed or ejected from the group.
Those instincts can be left a little disconnected from reality in modern life, if for example there is no obvious enemy to react against. Therefore there must always be a dangerous, evil, treacherous enemy – but nevertheless one that can be defeated “if we all stick together and obey orders”.
So the chimps cling together, obey the orders of Colonel Gorilla without hesitation or doubt, and always bitterly hate the baboons and orang-utans.
One of these days it would be nice if we could transcend those instincts and start obeying our reason. If we can stay alive long enough.
I’ll be in the coffee shop tomorrow and this is all I’ll hear about. That and the Ukie missile fired on Donetsk being blamed on Russia.
There was nothing on the Donetsk rocket attack in british media. But this morning there was a reported claim that 2 civilians had been killed by Russian shelling in Kyiv(sic), Kiev.
A Ukrainian military drone crashed in Croatia the other day. The British article I saw described it as ‘Russian made’ which is technically true, but rather misses the point.
Apparently this thing had been flying over Nato airspace for an hour and when it crashed the Croatians didn’t know it was there. I wonder what the story is there?
same story here in Poland, expaty the same
no mention of Donetsk Missile attack
That s so disgusting these hypocrits will all get their karma one day
The ship in the Satellite photo is one landing ships. It has the top profile of BDK Alexander Shabalin. So it maybe a Ropucha Class. Notice the flat bow in the front, the long deck then the raised spot and Cannon before the Bridge of the ship. There is no sunken wreckage near the island. No evidence of Vasily Bykov being damaged. The story is beyond stupid. ABC news is creating medicine for Ukro-Fascists to feel good about themselvse.
The video shows the shelling of a checkpoint of the Ukrainian army by Russian MLRS. If I’m not mistaken, this is the Dnipropetrovsk region.
Anything pieced together by the Banderites and US “media” can be anything. They had one news article, Russians won’t let civilians leave. The two BTR80s that were there were Ukrainian with their unique digital camouflage. They lie!!! They are also spreading the video of the fertilizer explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. They write it is Kharkov!!! In the video, the sea is visible. I would love to sunbath on the beaches of Kharkov. /s Poor geography skills allow for that one to have any traction in the West. A lot of POW’s in Russian Uniform were proven fake. In Russia, internet sleuthing, they have found these people to be Ukrainians, having social media pictures and locations. Anyone who isn’t stuck in a CNN, Fox, MSNBC, info bubble, this is obvious.
Even as a comic interlude, this is is bad taste. Leave the brain-dead Western public to caary on their idiocy. When people come here they are looking for thoughtful content.
Some of us like our news with a side of snark. I’ve also been checking Jimmy Dore and Lee Camp who have both been ripping the SPM (State Propaganda Media) since this started.
Very sad!! Not much budget for their propaganda I guess. CGI would be more convincing.
Nice overhead picture of Snake Island! I suggested it have S-400 batteries emplaced to control Romanian airspace and sill do.
I think this is all being done to create the context in western minds that Russia is losing and desperate – so when the US-NATO launch their false flag ‘chem/bio attack’ they will say it was done as a Hail Mary by Moscow…..
Sadly I think you are correct. The broad variety of ***crap analysis is impressive, like facing an operation Bagration made out of merde (shi*). Many who should have a better understanding (senior civil servants, ex military, various commentators) are producing so poor analysis that I do understand how the US came to believe its own fantasies about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and why they lost. Never get high on your own supply.
Now as you say though, this is part of the psychological battlefield preparation for a false flag chemical attack
They are waging war, not against Russia, but mainly against their own people – who surrendered abjectly on Day One.
I am afraid you are absolutely spot on with that assessment.
Help! I want to come home!
When the US Gov’t broke agreements with Russia, such as their joint cooperation in Space ventures, the Russian Fgn Minister, Sergei Lavrov, joked, “well get your own astronauts home then.” (rough translation)
Yes, the traitorous morons in the Zionist controlled Biden Gov’t & Congress, in their hurry to Sanction Russia, actually stranded one of their astronauts in the International Space Station. Understand! The USA (because of its de-industrialization, & exporting industry to other countries, NAFTA, etc.), is no longer capable of sending astronauts into Space or retrieving them. For years, the USA has been paying Russia to bring & retrieve its astronauts from the International Space Station. China has its own Space Station.
Increasingly, since 1960-1975 to the present, Russia & China have industrialized/modernized their economies, while the USA & Europe have declined in those areas. “Foundation” by science fiction writer Isaac Asimov, is recommended reading, He predicted the decline (& corruption), of a once Great Empire, & the concurrent rise of another Planetary center where the inhabitants advance their technology and economic well being.
This is just one recent story that should make it clear to every American, that We need to Restore Our Republic, destroyed, along with our last Constitutional President, John F. Kennedy, on November 22, 1963. Only then may we Progress once again!
Durruti- for the Anarchist Collective
Sadly the news anchor in the posted video appears to be the same clown from this famous meme:
C’mon man. That’s a very low blow.
I am excited by the number of friends and colleagues who don’t believe in PSYOP. More and more of them! Things are changing. We don’t see so many Banderita anymore. The media are getting lonely with their pathetic lies. From Spain.
Mission Accomplished! lol
Stupidly funny, but overall I not finding this conflict very amusing at all.
Every day I wake up and check the news to see if the hawks in the West and Zelensky’s deranged appeals and manipulations have managed to wrangle NATO into this conflict.
Anybody who lived thru the Cold War knows that is taking the fast lane with no brakes to nuclear war. Fortunately their are some with influence in NATO who are not dunderheads and do understand nuclear war and how a NATO vs Russia direct conflict is almost certain to lead to it.
Then there are the millions of ignoramuses who think this war began a few weeks ago. Poor innocent Ukraine the victim of an unprovoked attack. There has been eight years of extreme provocation. Russia finally ran out of patience adn decided to put a stop to it. For example:
1.Kiev’s failure to implement the French and German brokered 2015 Minsk Accords peace deal that was meant to end the war in Donbas. A war that has killed over 10,000 people according to the UN — mostly civilians in Donbas who died as a result of Ukrainian shelling.
2. Kiev’s allowing of their state security infrastructure to be taken over by radical far right nationalists and neo-Nazis, e.g., self confessed fascists like Parubiy, Tyahnybok and Avakov given key government positions, so they could stack the security services with jack boot types, which enabled repression of anti-coup elements. Now we see mass graves being uncovered and expect there will be many more.
3. Ukraine’s leaders made many statements saying they would retake Donbas by force. Crimea too. NATo waas training and equipping them to do so.
4. Zelensky recently alluded to Ukraine acquiring nuclear weapons.
5. No matter how much Russia tried, Ukraine’s and its western patrons had zero interest in a diplomatic solution that would take into account Russia’s security concerns, while the people of Donbas continued to die at Ukraine’s hands.
Russia made its move. Now I just hope it can be ended soon. Denitrification and a nerfed, dismembered, and neutral Ukraine especially.
This is Berlin bunker level madness. God help us.
Why would anyone spend time debunking this idiotic story? It’s propaganda. It has nothing to do with “elites” or Western “education.” Propaganda doesn’t have to be believable to be believed. It just has to be repeated and contradictory information suppressed, which the US does expertly. The purpose of propaganda is not to propagate truth, but to ensure public support for the war and sanctions. Propaganda is much more effective than police batons at controlling people. Dismiss at your own peril. The war was engineered by the West to 1) implement harsh sanctions and isolate Russia, and 2) provoke an insurgency–not to defeat the Russian army. Russian military victory is a given. Political success or failure depends on 1) which population, East or West, rebels against the economic pain first, and 2) whether or not there is widespread support among the Ukrainian population for an insurgency. Will it work? I don’t know, but both sides have embarked on very high risk enterprises. I would add that virtually all wars start with a very high level of public support on both sides. Incidentally, the last guy to insist that war is a mathematical exercise was Robert McNamara.
No, the Zionist have embarked on a high risk enterprise, Russia has embarked for their security.
Which means; For the rest of us , a fight against Zion Inc. Good vs evil!
“It’s propaganda. It has nothing to do with “elites” or Western “education.”” Wrong. everything is about education, the lack of. The west, zone A, has given control of their lives to uneducated idiots. Not all of the idiots are stupid, some are with high IQ, but have not learned anything useful for what they are doing. Unfortunately, ignorance is on all levels, from governments down. Corporate heads are as bad and ignorant as politicians. There are no techno managers any more, no real “intelligentsia”. It goes down to elementary school level. And hat is the end of the story.
Even if by some miracle, west decides to bring back old school education for kids and undergrads, with lots of math and physics, chemistry and biology, even if there are teachers competent to teach those, the first secondary level educated or craftsmen will appear in 10-12 years. Post secondary level will come in 12-15 years. And they will all be inexperienced, although educated, not ignoramuses, and they will need to start actually learning how to do their jobs. First 20 years after appearance of educated cadres, will be trial and error. meanwhile, more will be educated, without enough experienced people to help them. Yet, they will fill in positions and become managers and such. When in 40-50 years from now the west gains enough knowledge and practical experience, most senior positions will be populated by 2nd and 3rd wave of graduates, who will try to keep their positions by means of suffocating the youngsters. all that time, next 50 years, living standard in the Zone A will be much lower than in Euro-Asia (Russia and Asia). Youngsters will leave, and the level of education and expertise will start crumbling again. It will never sink as low as it is now, but a few competent produced by already shaky system will do anything to emigrate to – Euro-Asia, and be happy to be cheap labor for, yet better paid and with better standard than at home.
How do I know this? Well, this is exactly how it happened in former underdeveloped mainly agrarian nations after 2nd Word War, eastern Europeans, some Asians and South Americans.
The problem for USA specifically is that Mexico or Argentina or Cuba produce better educated work force on all levels than USA. I would not be surprised that in our life time (10-20 years more for me) we see raise of South America. some of them ight even become a regional superpowers, or mini empires which will be USA overlords. South border is already showing evidence of USA not being able to protect its borders. In due time, “real” USAns will start moving away. Right now, there is exodus of “whites” from California to more eastern parts of USA. Soon exodus will start from the southern states. One day, southern and western parts of USA will simply be empty of former masters and those territories will be nobody’s land. Not long after, nobody’s lands will become somebody’s, either Mexican government’s or one or more of the cartels. What happens after that is hard to tell. Once CIA is no more and narco markets of USA/Europe are no more, the cartels will be out of narco business. Some might decide to start independent nations, wars or no wars.
Not pretty at all. And all of that because educational system was utterly destroyed. After collapse of USSR, education system stayed damaged, but still capable of producing good “products”. We see the results now.
There is one video where says that one host is denouncing the war against Ukraine; Is this true?. I don’t speak russian and is for that I’m asking. https://meduza.io/en/short/2022/03/14/russian-state-tv-editor-interrupts-live-news-broadcast-with-anti-war-message
Yes but the lady has “Ukrainian parents” or something, so supposedly her neurotic stunt at least is somewhat explainable
For those lamers out there unfamiliar with all these fancy terms, let me explain this BS with an analogy the normies can understand:
You know what a catapult is, yeah? Giant sling that throws a boulder. Well, the clowns in western media are basically claiming the ukies threw a dozen unguided boulders at a MOVING fleet of ships dozens of kilometers away. Yeah, might as well use bows and arrows: Just as effective.
(I say ‘unguided boulders’ in the above analogy, because there is no tracking in the scenario, so they’re effectively unguided)
black guy is reporting it so if you don’t believe it then you are racist. lol.
How good is the information can we get in this link?. It seems is very actualized.
What the CIA’krainian actually said was ‘Go fake yourself!’
Yes, naturally – they have to INVENT Russian attacks against Ukrainian civilians and defenseless island Spartans because, in reality, there aren’t any real-life examples.
It’s actually worse than that, while they lie and manufacture supposed “atrocities” by the Russian army, the western corporate media claims that nazi attacks on Russian civilians, like the latest one in Donetsk, was a “false flag.” See my analysis of this incident here, and why it’s fake.
By the way, thank you so very much for sharing my rants in the Saker RS feed. I greatly appreciate it!!! :D
Patrick Lancaster has the Donetsk missile attack. He was on the scene just as it happened. It’s ugly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANNhDKGjNK8
Will Russia Be a Victim of Her Own Good Intentions?
Paul Craig Roberts
The Kremlin set out to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine with a minimum of civilian casualties. No American style “shock and awe.” When the Ukrainian militias heard this, they knew what to do. They located themselves and their heavy weapons in the middle of civilian populations. From there they can fire on the Russians without receiving fire in return.
It would have been so much better for Russia and for our chances of avoiding nuclear war if Russia had demonstrated intimidating power that would have made Europe too fearful to continue enabling Washington’s provocations of Russia. Instead, we are to have another provocation before the Kremlin can deal with the one at hand.
War is Hell. The Russians’ attempt to fight a war without the Hell is not working for them. They get no credit for the attempt. The Western media is full of atrocity stories. Here is a sample from an Associated Press report today:
Here we go again. Paul Craig Roberts is the broken record that just refuses to admit Russia’s ever higher levels of resolve, determination, and success. No matter what happens, PCR keeps droning on about Russian vacillation, hesitation, and wasted time. At bottom, it’s just 6th columnist noise.
Allow me to make a bold statement: Russia will pacify and denazify Ukraine by settling the territory of 404 with loyal and able people: Russians, Belarusians, Chechens. The khokhly are leaving 404, either for Russia or the decomposing West, the latter choice being the obvious one for Ukronazis in particular.
Остров Змеиный в советские годы к Украине не относился.
Им управляло напрямую Минобороны.
Занимая стратегически важное положение, остров был базой для РЛС и ПВО.
Позже добавился шельф. Тут нэзалежная Украина проиграла какой-то Румынии почти треть советских морских владений близ острова.
Разумеется, остров никому больше дарить нельзя.
О чём мичман уже писал ранее.
Полагаю, в Москве всё это понимают, и теперь пойдёт отсюда исключительно украинское государство.
“Zmeiny Island was not part of Ukraine in the Soviet years.
It was controlled directly by the Ministry of Defense.
Occupying a strategically important position, the island was a base for radar and air defense.
Shelf was added later. Here independent Ukraine lost almost a third of the Soviet maritime possessions near the island to some Romania.
Of course, the island cannot be given to anyone else.
What the midshipman has already written about earlier.
I believe that Moscow understands all this, and now only the Ukrainian state will leave from here.”
I don’t remember ANYONE, ANYWHERE in the world trying to cancel the US and the Yanks when Obama was bombing and attacking 7 different countries during his regime. Two of those countries, Syria and Libya, were almost completely wrecked.
“I’m really good at killing people.” — Obama (2013)
Granted we’ve seen a lot fakes from the Enemy, and this ‘report’ relies entirely on trust, not given, for its effect. But I’ve fired a lot of weapons and I’m always pretty casual about aiming and I still hit stuff regularly enough. So I’ll wait until I hear an official denial of this story until I dismiss it.
What worries me is that it seems the West is ratcheting up for an escalation from their side. Every Russian, whoever, wherever and whatever has already been vilified and sub or dehumanized. “Atrocities” by Russian forces and “refugee suffering” are publicized and predictably reacted upon. Warnings of false flag attacks, of Russian bio-attack with seized Ukie bio-agents and warnings against a “stray” Russian “hit” on Poland/NATO Country. Then with Russia allegedly “bogged down”, running out of everything and Ukies allegedly kicking Russian @rse you have hordes of liberals and conservatives alike, wanting to get in on the “fun” / feeding frenzy who can talk tough but have never fired a single bullet even in a simulated battle.
So they’ve recruited the willing cannon fodder, created public sentiment for support and have several options to escalate and mobilize.
Tested, tried and worked beautifully since late 1800’s with Second Anglo-Boer War, the Boers called the Second Freedom War. The Empire was sure troops would be home fo Christmas 1899 but war only ended in 1902 requiring deployment of 500 000 regulars by the Empire against bands of mainly militias of maybe 100 000 or so. But it was worth the public (tax payer) cost for the profit that the Gold Bugs made from resources, banking and creating corporate empires.
Incidentally civilian Russians, Irish, Germans and fighters from several European nations came to the aid of the Boers.
Fact is the investment in creating the scenario does signify preparation for an extremely dangerous escalation.
Sadly, the sheeple will watch this and believe! But, we all know who owns and runs the vast majority of the media monopolies which is why the Russian accounts are being systematically blocked.
It would be very interesting to see what will happen to those videos on YT when the truth become truth to them too. Should we download these clips?
PS. with few exceptions (like TV5 in France) they stopped reporting Mariupol yesteday evening. Not a single word of evacuation. 🤣
The comments would be like this:
“That didn’t age well.”
It will come in many different ways, different languages etc.
It is so difficult to post this while I’m laughing. Do people believe this?
Of course they do. There hasn’t been a single “news” piece in the last 70 years that hasn’t been a tissue of legalistic parsing, half-truths, and flat-out lies, and yet how often do you hear any lasting outrage even when the BS is exposed? “Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear” is great advice, but people in general are lazy, self-absorbed and believe whatever feels good to believe.
Thank you for the breakdown of this. Caught a bit of story and all seemed odd, Because, they would have needed an anti-shipping missile to sink a Russian Corvette which Coast Guard units do not generally operate. And the housing and launch site for such a medium sized missile on a tiny island would be both visible and ridiculously vulnerable to air attack.. Nor was there any footage of the alleged sinking ship which US satellites would have surely provided to Ukraine for propaganda use if had happened.
But this story appeared all western MSM. Western MSM is known to be so politicized now it is called as ‘post truth media’, for good reason. Iraqi WMD 2003, Syrian Rebels 2012, Russian Hacking Collusion 2016, all have been debunked as straight up western media manipulation lies, and yet the public keeps consuming this MSM trash.
I use German media, especially the more trashy BILD newspaper, for bullshit bingo. You have it all:
-the war heroes: Ghost of Ukraine shooting down Russian planes (he probably is sleeping while flying in the sky, not sure where he could land), now the world best sniper, woman stopping tanks, …
-wonder weapons destroying Russian military: the anti tank missiles and the turkey drones – check
-making the Russians inhuman: Bombing cities, hospitals (especially children hospitals), just missing the kindergarten and playground
-the final victory is close: the Russians not even taking there dead. Probably millions (with all the overkill), even that they only mentioning thousands (you have to keep it real)
-speeches from the Führer: Selinsky and the boxer brothers saying keep strong, we are winning (or at least not loosing)
-pictures of broker and destroyed Russian vehicles in an infinite loop.
-request that Russian solders defect to avoid death
If you just take that and take it seriously, you nearly could believe the defense is making sense. But it does not ad up. Why is the giant slow moving Russian convoy not destroyed if they could do it? Why do they desperately want a no fly zone and involvement of other countries…
Well, for most people it probably is good enough. they do not want to think and they do not want to question. And they certainly do not want to realise that they are not the good once (if there is such thing at all).
It all makes more sense with the updated newspeech dictionary:
-democratic = we
-Nazi, Lunatic = the others
So very obviously, from western perspective, there can be not Ukraine nazis, only Russians. And of course the west bombs only to give democracy (what we learned with the dictionary means getting them on our side) – mostly to countries whose president is directly elected from the people. What is very funny, because the German president (who has no real power, but will never less be removed if he speaks too much truth) is elected half by celebrities.
Unfortunately, in the Czechia, we do not have any “other” media for the masses, so the main giants of massed media will only handpick the “bullshit bingo”. When the war started (Or operation, or how should we call that incident when armed people shoot at each others unarmed peoples) our not-at-all-dystopian regime activelly shutted down any pro-russian propaganda sites (Acusations are enough to take your site down – they can of course go to the democratic court and after costly and prolongued trial your site will be turned on again for a few days…), so we have only the Truth sites and no other in our language option. Praise the EU, big gold stared blueness ethernal! Who needs to have other side of the spectrum, right? It is for our own good. Those “other sites” will give our eyes cancer. So:
Ghost of Ukraine shooting down Russian planes – yep. Same there for a few days it was so huge – like Snake island. Ghost! Heroic Ghost! What? Airports? No no no no, you should care about that GHOST! Not some ass stupid airports… pictures? ehm… okay…hmmm.. here! See? plane!… Rolling of… flying… what? That Ghost? No! No it is not “That” ghost, but… you know, it is plane… GHOST! Probably from WWpart2. Shooting down ghost Šturmoviks. Tomorrow there will be a Cossack cavalry regiment riding in the sky, killing those red damn red ruskies red reds! I belive this is some idiotic misunderstandment of Ukries situation joke – One soldier said to other: “Its fcked,Gavril… we have no airports no jets, no pilots” “so who will shoot down ruskies jets?” *loud breath exhale* “Gavril, I dunno for fck sake! Their ghosts.” “Bhuawahahahahaha!!! Youre idiot Vasil!” “Yeah, but we’re fcked….”
Wonder weapons – in our media (Czech media sewage), for some reason they count even those volksturm grenadiers as wonder weapons. Perhaps because those motherfked russians dont have such numbers… only in cassualities (Who are in our translation always killed russians, so those numbers of russians terminated is allmoust hillarious). I believe it is another wonderweapon – variable day to day sized regiments of perfectly trained and not at all desperate, crazy or violent supersoontobesoldiers. Also – Glorious Ukrainian gypsies hijacking tank… it was top story for nearly a week. We are rasists, i guess.
Inhuman russkies – c’mon… in my country they was evil since Ciernobog breathed his cloud o evilness into those shattered black flesh bags of infinite hate – now called russian. They was responsible for blowing up our ammunition warehouse, killing Skripal (who was presumably resurrected by allmighty Union who shed her merciful tear on his poisoned body), fcking up Syria, training German neonazis in their soil (probably by Putin himself and before nazis were not cool) and electing rumpy the Trumpy into fully curved office. Here it only escalated. And sad is it not escalated even that high…
The final victory is close – yep, here too. Ukrainan super forces stopped Russian rolling scrap. And the cost of victory was worth it! And then next Headline – 3/4 of Czech citizens are scared of Putin. Because he is currently loosing. And he have a nukes. Not only nukes, but RUSSAN NUKES! Those are more dangerous because those are filled with enriched azbuka.
speeches from the Führer – Those speeches was similar from new year. And when i think about it…. it is same speech scheme since covid started. They only switched the heads and main theme. Only the main fuhrer zelensky is more ridiculous. Comes with the teritory, i guess.
pictures of broken and destroyed Russian vehicles in an infinite loop – Nope, only buildings. And “Ruskies evilness killed “insert” many peoples in this civilian “insert” building”.
request that Russian soldiers defect to avoid death – Yep. This comes not only from a master comedian himself but also from our own “Heroic parlament representation”. I dunno, but was sure that our country is not taking any part of this conflict in an active way, so why Russian soldiers should surrender to us is a mystery to me.
In addition, our media are for some reason connecting the educational spanking of Ukraine with our own upcoming energy crisis and fuel price increases. I guess this is due the “Raid the hate train and blame you own faults on something” tactic. So we lost in two ways – our country is part ofd this idiotic Russia hate, and our media are giving free bj to our representation by blaming their faults and lack of political action on war. Plus, as i said – there is literally no alternative czech source of information in czech language.
Are you able to get rt.com? I use the german version (de.rt.com) as a news feed. Seems a relatively objective source of info from what I can tell. Even the crazy stories (like that the chief of the German spy agency was trapped in Kiev for a day after the invasion. Seems he is really up to date) are later confirmed true.
For a few days there were problems reaching that, but not seems fine here in Switzerland and also in all other countries when trying via VPN. But could be that the VPN uses special DNS servers.
Our situation isn’t like “blocking some sort of content from some sites” – majority of outer world sites are able (with some temporary shutdowns but i blame this on trollstorms). rt.com work just fine and temporary shutdowns are tolerable, war, i got it… Our regular citizen Jindra from… dunno… Liptákov?.. still can sit at his cube screen computer after milking his cows and bulls, search any site he wants, and after i guess sixty sites of our “Seznam” browser adverted alternative and more joyfull misleads he can read it.
What i am saying is that we are censoring our own sites with the suffix .cz. Our own sites, in Czech language with any info other than Big Truth are closed by some proactive dickheads from not even government agency called CZ.NIC, with no mandate to do so nor support in law and operating on their own. And our representatives just applaud them, and said basicly “You can go for the court if you wanna! Sorry for closing your site if you are innocent… of… crime… wait… where is that paper… mnmnmnhm… oh there it is: Of supporting the Russian Agression! There it is! See? If you support that, you are bad guy! And as a bad guy you cannot have a site! You know, its democracy. But the Czech democracy! With the human face! Yay!”
Meh, too long again.Sorry… short: yep, we can see rt.com … for now. And there was some problems too. Probably trollstorms. Its war, so its expected.
Ghost of Kyiv. LOL! The only thing worse than war is lying propaganda to drive the people towards war. Sad.
So the German media and Hollywood says it’s okay to praise Ukrainian nazis but the old Hitler (an Austrian) nazis were evil? These people are so dishonest.
As of yesterday readovka seems running slow in EU. Essentially shut down
In forum posts and such be careful what you say. Pretend to be outraged by such and such news and post your link. Else you’ll be kicked off the forum.

This nonsense could, indeed, pass as genuine for someone brainwashed from the kindergarten to allow the TV to think for him. For someone,actually capable of critical thinking, that’s complete BS. To be honest, if I haven’t seen it, I wouldn’t believe that ABC talkheads are such morons.
Hey, don’t insult the Commodore 64 wargames, they can be far more accurate and realistic than the ukie’s :-)
I want to share this video with you. It is in Serbian/Russian/English but mostly narrated in Serbian by Miodrag Zarkovic a well-known journalist from Belgrade, Serbia who is associated with Helmcast which is one of YouTube TV stations in Serbian. You may not understand much to understand the level of devastation of Volnovaha.
I don’t know how legit this site is but it will definitely get Poland’s attention. May be why the three Prime ministers are going to Kiev.

BREAKING: The PMs of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovenia will be in Kyiv later today
This specific piece of anti-Russian fake news is ‘so-so’. The real stunner in this genre was when the ‘unpoisonable’ Navalny rang up some random fellow of his who pretended to be his prison guard. Disgruntled at the KGB’s (yes, KGB) piss-poor salaries/remunerations/promotion standards, this “guard” had no qualms about revealing that he had been ordered to poison Navalny with you-know-what on the order of you-know-whom, And the hilarious stage faked expression of utter horror in Navalny’s face hearing this “revelation of the century” was just too funny.
Debunking Ukronazi supposed military achievements on strictly military grounds is not entirely trivial, so there might be grown-ups who cannot see the absurdity from a military POV. By contrast, inanities such as Navalny’s phone call can readily be trashed by any normally gifted 10-year-old. An adult falling for this kind of nonsense will happily believe the sky is green.
first point of peace talks…ukrforces must stop fighting…..well suppose they do not obey the command from the top ..would there be an assessment that “enough” have ceased to be active and that some determined to go to the end would still be dealt with …or Russia absolutely insist that everything stops then waits say a week to confirm it? What happens if there are restarts from Ukrops?
Personally I believe Putin should never meet Zelensky…over recent years there has been such an emphasis by the west and actions to try and set up Russia to be blamed and labelled for chemical weapons…and to get rid of Pres Putin at any cost…expendable Zed could be set up with a secret device(unknowingly) eg an exploding ring on his hand loaded with so called novichok when shaking his hand in a room of top Russian leadership….then he would have immortal memory as an assassin acting for the “world good”….his family being well taken care of in that multi million villa.
Consider how much procrastination there has been by the Ukraine over Minsk ..techniques still being used plus all the exaggeration of the claims of successes against Russian forces…all designed so that Zed will actually meet Pres Putin face to face.. and … ? Then Russia would be blamed for an operation against a hero of the west Z involving chemical weapons that somehow “went wrong” as the n was supposed to become effective some hours later like the Skripals …
mission completed by the psychotic west..
Well the propaganda war as presented in Australia across all networks includes the following:
Russia is using its entire forces and displaying how mediocre the military element is.
The Russia China relations are shaky at best and there is no love lost between the two.
War crimes committed by Russia includes attacks on civilians hospitals pregnant women etc.
Lots of distressed civilians suffering.
Ukrainian heroes fighting the good fight for the free world order.
We are on a blanket ban of Russian news services etc.
Putin has mental health issues and has a select circle of advisors just telling him what he wants to hear.Also labeled as erratic and has world domination ideals.
Lots of anti China rhetoric is the norm as well.
Both political parties are in step on these issues.
Have been following this site since 2014 and I am quite aware of the immortals parade and how proud Russians are in honouring their ancestors and efforts in Ww2. How can you not be moved by such passion and dedication.
Once upon a time I believed in our own Anzac spirit but this seems to be lost these days.
I appreciate all the hard work done by all here and the excellent commentators.
I certainly hope the world will eventually change for the betterment of all….
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala, and Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa arrived in Ukraine and are headed to Kiev, the Polish PM’s office announced on Tuesday.
“About an hour ago, the train of the prime minister, Deputy Prime Minister for Security Jaroslaw Kaczynski, and the prime ministers of the Czech Republic and Slovenia crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border,” the office tweeted.
The leaders are set to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal in Kiev. The purpose of the meeting is to express the unequivocal support of the European Union towards Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence, and discuss a broad package of support measures.
now they are human shields…
I hope both nutcases: Kaczynski and his minion Morawiecki won’t return. Bunch of thieves.
Janša in the biggest psychopathic scoundrel you can imagine who unfortunately has 20% or even more loyal idiotic supporters among Slovenians. There is a theory in Telegram channels that those presidents are going to see Zelenski “in Kiev” to help quench rumors among Ukrainians that Zelenki is in Poland.
Today in Sputnik it was reported:
“Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said that the US was trying to destroy relations with Russia. He added that Russia hopes that the US will understand that it is necessary to continue discussing strategic stability issues with Moscow.”
Is this person really this disconnected from reality? The US and Europe have made it very clear in no uncertain terms that they want Russia destroyed and all Russians dead! Is he just now drawing this conclusion after all that has been said and done? And yet he still holds out the hope that the US will, in the end, become reasonable in their thinking!
that is going to take even more adminstrative civil servants needing IT salaries premises etc that are going to cost the economy even more….
Patric Lancester is an American journalist with the DPA who is somewhere near the front. On interviewing a resident of on of the cities that had been liberated, the man asked him where he was from, Patric told him he was from America but has lived in Donesk for eight years. Then the man said, “you are from America and you live in Donesk? The whole world is not enough for you?” Right there I saw a philospher. Patric presents proof that the Ukrainean miltary positions its tank in residential compounds. Here is the proof on you tube;
Patrick is a good guy. He has been in Donetsk and also Armenia for at least 8 years trying to get the truth out. He posted a video today showing the destruction in downtown Donetsk where the Ukie/Orcs/Nazis hit the city with a missile that have cluster munitions.
I would ask your opinion about real battle value of so called Azov- and Aidar brigades compared to regular Ukrainian army units.
The reason for that question is based on studies made both in Germany and other countries suggesting that German Waffen SS was not any kind of elite force at all but actually more poorly trained and led than average Wehrmacht units. Can history repeat in this case of military fantasy versus facts?
Any propaganda narrative is necessarily misleading, but that of the American media, more than that, is of an unparalleled stupidity!
Is the claim that the U.S. / EU have confiscated most of Russia’s $400B sovereign wealth fund true?
By that I mean the dollar and gold holdings. If that is true then that is an own goal of epic proportions. I get that there are Russian dollars on foreign banks for the purpose of maintaining trade but the sovereign wealth fund, even the part that is in dollars, should have been re-patriated into Russian banks.
This was done with a purpose in my opinion. Russian external debt is 478bl, so Russia can always clain that they owe nothing to anyone, neither it can be said it defaulted. If I understand correctly Russia has 6.7 trillion in gold and who knows what else.
The gold is probably safe in Russia. But most of the USD reserves of the central bank are probably on an account of the Federal Reserve in the US. That is just how modern money and central banks work. Not many alternatives and easy to freeze. That is why Russia diversified from USD in the last few years.
But not many people expected that a freeze would happen, not for a major country anyway (just easier to steal from small isolated countries). Because other countries will monitor that very closely. Why should anyone hold USD or worse EUR, when that is useless in case you need it. The international law in Europe and the USA is in terrible shape. They also confiscated stuff from rich Russians. Maybe that are not good nice people, but just taking it without a proper trial and verdict just is not right. But it seems, there are not rights left in the west.
Meanwhile, if you want further eye-rolling confirmation of the Nazi nature of Ukrainian nationalism, look up “Argument #9” from the blue-checked “Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance”.
Straight up Nazi racial pseudoscience, there.
Saker – this is pretty cool. It was put out there by Intel Slava Z(?) maybe a Twitter account but I saw it in an X22 video.
Go to 23:40 in the video
It appears that two Ukie SBU colonels near Kiev were killed. They were carryig American C4 and maps. We they trying to cause a false flag or just blow up something.
Dave on the X22 Report thinks that lower level Ukie soldiers have either been killed or have fled (hopefully the latter) and the SBU and Ukies are sending colonels on suicide missions. I am curious what others here think.
Can this be confirmed by other sources?
“The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky convulsively is reshuffling the leadership of the Armed Forces in the hope of changing the situation in the country.
Zelensky replaces Joint Forces Operation Head and in fact admits defeat in the Donbass
Thus, the guarantor appointed a new commander of the “Joint Forces Operation” in Donbass. They became Major General Eduard Moskalev, RIA Novosti reports.
“Major General Eduard Moskalev, a professional, patriotic person, has become the new commander of the JFO. The decree has been signed,” Zelensky said in another video message.
He appointed the former commander, Lieutenant General Alexander Pavlyuk, the head of the regional military administration in Kyiv and the region. His dismissed predecessor Alexei Kuleba will help him.
The decision to replace the commander of the JFO and send to Kyiv, in fact, the most experienced of the current military leaders, suggests that Zelensky is in despair. The guarantor is clearly letting the situation in the Donbass take its course. From the very beginning it was clear that the defeat of the Ukrainian Nazis in the LPR and DPR was a matter of time. However, it is now clear that the leaders of the regime have come to the same conclusion, which means that the Ukrainian Armed Forces groups will be thrown into boilers in the Donbass.”
Here’s some amusing psychobabble from the aptly named site https://www.journal-psychoanalysis :
Paul Craig Roberts are those who don’t have the clue of nature of this denazification. He want that American style of aggression on warfare. Cynicism is so easy and cheap. Everyone can do it.
Paul Craig Roberts should be respected for his stand and courage.
It is amazing to see someone who has served at the high level of the US administration to consistently
air his independent and honest views. PCR is guided by honesty, truth and personal integrity.
As all of us PCR is an observer and who can only express opinions based on limited information available.
I value his opinions and I read him regularly. Some of his opinions may be a wishful thinking reflecting an
ideal situation, but on some like Russia Central Bank dealings, he may be right, as he understands economy.
However, I hope to see Russia implementing slowly those policies that PCR recommended.
On finishing the war in 48 hours, I share those wishes with PCR, but there are two elements of the war:
(a) winning (b) maintaining occupation of which the second one (b) is far more difficult than (a). Thus, I understand why Russia has been maximally restrained. Besides, give it a few weeks or even a month and rats will come out of those besieges cities hungry and voluntarily, which is better than sacrificing lives of Russian soldiers.
On PCR view, written in 2014, that Russia should have taken the rest of Ukraine together with Crimea, at much lower cost than now, I agree. Not doing anything after UkroNazis burned 52 people alive in Odesa, did hurt Russian reputation, mainly among those anti-nazis in Ukraine who felt betrayed. (Similar feelings in Donetsk and Luhansk). But again, was Russia able to do so at that time – I do not know and PCR does not know either.
Regardless, I have a great respect for the man. He has consistently shown guts and integrity.
“They are simply that incompetent and have no grasp of modern warfare, especially involving issues of C4ISR.” Of course not, Андрей, they have never, ever worn the uniform,
have never been in any war, and like all of Uncle $hmuel’s chickenhawks, of whom which are always eager for war, their children and grandchildren have never worn a uniform of the
armed forces. If by the off chance that they have been in the military, it was something like
the idiot Al Gore, about whose service in Viet Nam highly touted during the 2000 Pres. campaign, was a reporter for Stars and Stripes, NEVER in any danger. Uncle $hmuel’s govt. is full these morons.
This ABC news video is unbelievable.
It belongs to Mickey Mouse cartoon serials.
It is made for children, not for adults.
But for those used to Hollywood scenarios it must be enjoyable.
In 99% of what I read in the news, I have no way to verify for myself whether it’s true or not. But the 1% where I actually know what was happening, or have a good knowledge in the issue, make me skeptical.
I was living in Bucharest, Romania during the late 1990’s, and the political elite of the country was desperate to join NATO an EU. One of the sailing points was that Snake Island, to which both Ukraine and Romania laid claims.
In order to access NATO, Romania had to give up claims to the island, whereas Ukraine had not to station any offensive weapons there.
Any weapon that can sink an enemy warship is certaninly not a defensive weapon
You know we snicker at all the US hardware destroyed, lost or sold on the black market but who foot the bill for its manufacture? Just cause we look like losers doesn’t mean those in charge aren’t making bags of money while slavic people kill each other cuz the MSM says we hafta!
They are laughing all the way to the bank and we stand at the gravesites eulogizing over our lost ‘heroes’.
Meanwhile the people that made it happen get that much richer distributing arms so the peasants can off each other.
NATO gave the Russians no other choice. If you knew what to do with Russia you had your chance when the USSR split up. So busy greedily stealing assets no one thought about taking total control.
I am the author, I have been writting about the war in Ukraine since the Maidan, the Crimean events, and the war in Donbass. I am a self-proclaimed military and history expert. I do know more than famous bloggers Yuri Podolyak and Boris Rozhin and try to write in a more systematic way and with analysis. Unlike others bloggers, this is a non-profit endeauvor. I do not even have ads.
The information is as good as the sources I can find. I collect, contrast, verify and organize all the information I can get from Russian sources, mostly from the Donbass militia and underground resistance and I try to present it in a daily war briefing style, using my expertise about war and military technology to try to explain things to civilian readers, now thanks to Telegram and the improvement of machine translation I can get access to much more sources and info than eight years ago.
I think reports from those Russian bloggers that I mention can be improved and expanded and that’s my contribution. I also can contribute a good analysis on casualties that I haven’t seen anywhere. Over time my estimates and methods have been proven consistently right as information regarding dead and wounded surfaced from the Ukrainian rear. I do know what I talk about,
The information is not always 100% correct, it’s impossible in a war situation, but I got the hang of it over the years, and I learned to filter trustworthy and reliable sources, and decide wether a report can be considered plausible in the current context. Sometimes my reports might be a bit premature when so or so village is taken. It might not be taken yet, but I know for sure there’s fighting for that place and by the time I publish the daily report it is usually confirmed. If there are mistakes or exagerations that passed the filter I admit it later and fix it.
I am independent and not being Russian I can avoid falling into the “hurray patriotism”, if there are problems or bad things to criticize I say it. I also try to provide different sources so the reader has different viewpoints.
I am just a solitary amateur, but if you know somebody that does it like this and better, tell me, I would be glad to rest.
While this is entertaining, portraying Russia as losing and desperate, plays right into a future false-flag event blamed on Russia, which will say Russia did the ugly deed out of desperation. On the flip side, such a lie will be fully transparent because crucial fence-sitters are quite expecting such an event, because the west is losing and desperate.
