RT coverage here. “Russian troops have completely liberated the strategic Donbass city of Artyomovsk (known as Bakhmut in Ukraine), the scene of a grueling battle for many months, the Russian Defense Ministry confirmed in the early hours of Sunday.”
More theatre, very entertaining if that's your cup of sencha.
Meanwhile the censorship and erasure of information, enslavement and culling of humanity rolls on unabated.
Yeah but did you see the dude claiming to be a broad ? zzzzzzzzzzzz ..........
All aboard !!!
This is one of most simple and important lessons about journalism: compare the news.
If the EU disintegrates in a series of crises, there will be huge problems in many countries. People will learn hunger and insecurity like never before. Better to prepare now.
The EU red tape is the iron curtain. It destroyed the perception of reality an caused a lot of trouble. The Euro and the unification of higher education and the EU equivalents of the FDA and CDC have caused many problems. Less accountability not more, less security nor more.
Hiroshima seems like an appropriate place for Zelensky to put an end to it. Perhaps the French will do us all a favor and maroon Zelensky there by declining to fly him home in their aircraft?!
Meanwhile, the Japanese could take Zelensky on a VIP guided tour of the atomic bomb museums in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I will never forget the visits I made there. A deeply harrowing experience. It could not but affect anyone with any humanity, including Zelensky.
Anyone with any clarity, knew how this would end. The terrible loss of Ukrainian soldiers is for nothing. Senseless.
You ask why the AFU did not just withdraw. It looks like they did. After the Russians totally destroyed the town with artillery. It is not for us to second-guess either military. I propose that you read Bob Homans on my Substack and Comment is Freed on Substack for deeper analyses.
The Russian milbloggers, Igor Girkin in the lead, are asking if this strategically unimportant town was worth 100,000 Russian lives. Good question. My opinion is that Ukraine was playing rope-a-dope in Bakhmut like it did in Severodonetsk and Lysychansk. Inflicting maximum casualties in yielding a not-very-important objective to the aggressor.
As you read both sides, compare the stridency of the Russians with the measured tone of the Ukrainians. Resembles the measured tone of Tucker, Glenn and Matt on topics like Russiagate. When the facts are on your side, you don't have to shout.
Might be the big one folks...
The reporting of the press here in continental Europe is slightly different.
The loss of the city is pretty much acknowledged but they go at great lengths to downplay its significance. In my Dutch morning paper it took two full pages to downplay the fall of Artyomovsk/Bakhmut - which seems a bit much reporting on a matter of little importance. ;)
Mr. Zelensky's holiday continues...does he ever return to Ukraine? Or does he continue to run the Ukraine-in-exile Government, from his mansion in Florida?
And I wonder, I wo-wo-wo-wo-wonder
He ran away?
And I wonder where he will stay?
That little runaway
If you want to read the actual truth about Ukraine, go find "Simplicius the Thinker" substack entitled "Simplicius's Garden of Knowledge" (he has two stacks). If you prefer to watch/hear the truth via video, on Rumble, go find Alexander Mercouris, Alex Christoforou, or The Duran channels.
There just is no point taking in the absolute bullshit that MSM and even many alt-news sites post about it. What's been going on, just like the corona hoax, is vastly different that what the lies spewed by MSM.
Whenever I learn about the insanity of war, it makes my blood boil seeing how we are all the puppets of the schemes of rich men we don’t know who smile when they see the profits.
And as someone who has committed my life to discovering and practicing peace, there’s a tiny morsel of hope that what is left of the human race after this disgraceful chapter is over is so disgusted with it that we finally once in for all stop all this ugly shit.
“When will they ever learn;
When will they ever learn?”
This is so sinister, the military psyops that made this mass murder possible. Washington and NATO should live in shame and regret forever.
When I was young, I got involved with the anti war movement which was a far cry from the truth and freedom community we are building. But there was some great music including this anthem that rocked my heart.

how long has the cabal been trying to gin up WWIII? Most of my life. We haven't bought in. It won't work this time either.
When I ask my Senators and Rep why we are in Ukraine in the first place, no answers. What is there that we want?
