“War is ugly! No amount of window dressing will make it otherwise” chuq
This post ought to get chins a-flappin’…..for if true is not the picture that the PR firms are helping the MSM paint of the Ukraine and its leader.
I can hardly wait for the sarcasm.
NO! I am not a supporter of Putin…..and NO I do not think Zelensky is the god that he is portrayed…..any one that thinks I am needs to stop snorting glue and pay attention.
There always two sides to every story….to ignore one over the other is ignorant.
This article is published it the site TheGrayZone……..I am posting as an FYI piece that contradicts some of the BS that the media is passing off as fact….is this stuff accurate? But like the MSM it is unverified…..
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has framed his country’s war against Russia as a battle for democracy itself. In a carefully choreographed address to US Congress on March 16, Zelensky stated, “Right now, the destiny of our country is being decided. The destiny of our people, whether Ukrainians will be free, whether they will be able to preserve their democracy.”
US corporate media has responded by showering Zelensky with fawning press, driving a campaign for his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize and inspiring a flamboyant musical tribute to himself and the Ukrainian military during the 2022 Grammy awards ceremony on April 3.
Western media has looked the other way, however, as Zelensky and top officials in his administration have sanctioned a campaign of kidnapping, torture, and assassination of local Ukrainian lawmakers accused of collaborating with Russia. Several mayors and other Ukrainian officials have been killed since the outbreak of war, many reportedly by Ukrainian state agents after engaging in de-escalation talks with Russia.
“There is one less traitor in Ukraine,” Internal Affairs Ministry advisor Anton Geraschenko stated in endorsement of the murder of a Ukrainian mayor accused of collaborating with Russia.
Zelensky has further exploited the atmosphere of war to outlaw an array of opposition parties and order the arrest of his leading rivals. His authoritarian decrees have triggered the disappearance, torture and even murder of an array of human rights activists, communist and leftist organizers, journalists and government officials accused of “pro-Russian” sympathies.
Please read the disclaimer…..this is NOT a pro-Putin or Russia piece….it is news (propaganda if you will) that has not been seen or heard in the MSM.
Is it true?
I do not know but the accusations are worth an investigation…any and all types of offenses like these should be investigated no matter who commits the offense…..everyone should be held to the same goals.
To be honest with my readers…thegrayzone is a left leaning site and blog founded by American journalist Max Blumenthal.
You were born with a brain….maybe it is time to use it for something other than a hat rack.
Then a NATO member helped train the neo-Nazis in Ukraine……
With mounting evidence pointing to the Canadian Armed Forces having trained members of Ukraine’s military who are also reported to be part of extremist groups, experts say Ottawa needs to strongly bolster its investigation and vetting of the soldiers it trains and arms in the embattled country.
The Department of National Defence promised a thorough review of Canada’s mission in Ukraine after CTVNews.ca approached them for comment in October 2021, regarding a report from George Washington University that found extremists in the Ukrainian military were bragging about being trained by Canadians as part of Operation UNIFIER.
The group in question – which calls itself Military Order Centuria, or simply Centuria, has links to the far-right Azov movement.

Good to see some more balance on the issue, chuq. In my experience, people don’t generally want to hear it.
Best wishes, Pete.
SAD as it is…..they truly do not if it contradicts their misplaced conclusions. chuq
It doesn’t matter too much what it is that people “Hear” about the war because most people are totally unable to do anything that will change the war …What really matters is how do we avoid getting ourselves cremated in a major nuclear conflict .. and there is nobody smart enough to do or say anything that will help anybody and if they do say or do something to try to help it will do not good because somebody else will stand in the way… Some war hawk is going to do and say the wrong damned thing and get us all killed unless some miracle takes place … we should brace for that.
We cannot as long as ignorance and ‘blindness’ prevail…..chuq
