II have been trying to show people that they are being lied to about Ukraine.

Most are totally unwilling to even consider that the truth could be suppressed so completely by their trusted media and government.

Thank you for speaking out about Valery Kuleshov and Gonzalo Lira. We must keep Gonzalos name in the media, as there is not confirmation of his murder, so we can only hope for the best.

I also want to point out that the Daily Beast exposed him to Zelenskyy's regime and that a US "journalist Sarah Ashton-Cirillo has claimed to have been instrumental in his capture.

When American citizens are losing their lives daily from a gov’t approved experimental biological perhaps we need to address those murders first.

Post on FB by Vladimir Golstein:

One Thing They Teach You About Soviet Socialism or Other Totalitarian Regimes, Is That They Don't Care About The Price, Or, In A More Philosophical Terms, They Imagine That The Ends Justify The Means.

You hear it again and again and again. Bad regimes. They don't care about the means.

All fine, and it helps us to put a nice scheme upon the world: humane regimes vs. inhumane ones, but then, the complexities occur. Franco in Spain killed thousands to achieve his means. So did Pinochet in Chili. Then we learn about endless amount of deaths, extra-judicial hijacking, killing, torture all over Latin America.

Then the decease began to spread all over the world. Just a few days ago we celebrated the birthday of a heroic American, Hugh Thompson, who tried to stop the butchery at My Lai, the butchery that his superiors described as "we destroyed this village in order to save it."

Exactly the same way, recently dispatched to hell, Maddy Albright, described the death of thousands of Iraqi children: "it was worth it."

So it is not "worth it" in case of Stalin, but "worth it" in case of Iraq or Vietnam? Strange logic, indeed.

And now we have another regime that is cheered on by the civilized world: go for it, it is worth it.

Burn people in Odessa, it is worth it. Bomb civilians in Donbass for eight years, it is worth it. Erect monuments to butchers and murderers: their patriotism outweighs their crimes, so ends justify the means. Abduct and kill mayors, politicians, journalists, common citizens, exactly how they used to do in Argentina, Brazil, or Middle East. It is worth it. Fake, stage, play-act, pull anything from the worst practices of Gestapo, KGB, or CIA -- it is worth it. But is it?

It is a strange world we are living in, when Russia -- probably due to its legacy of Stalinism and the lessons it learned from it-- bends over backward to avoid this obnoxious theory of the ends justifying the means, while the west embraces it with the energy of neophytes. Democracy, i.e. blind obedience to Washington's myopia is worth it. A bad lesson to learn for oneself and even worse in terms of teaching others. Brzezinski's and Albright's pupils at the State Department can be proud. They've fully internalized the lessons of their enemies and rivals.

"This is from the article of Ukrainian state sponsored extra-legal activities, that would make any Latin American dictator jealous:

"The UN OHCR found in 2016 that “arbitrary detention, enforced disappearances, torture and ill-treatment of such conflict-related detainees were common practice of SBU… A former Kharkiv SBU officer explained, ‘For the SBU, the law virtually does not exist as everything that is illegal can be either classified or explained by referring to state necessity.”

Yevhen Karas, the founder of the infamous neo-Nazi C14 unit, has detailed the close relationship his gang and other extreme right factions have enjoyed with the SBU. The SBU “informs not only us, but also Azov, the Right Sector, and so on,” Karas boasted in a 2017 interview."

And this:

"Since Russia launched its military operation inside Ukraine, the SBU has hunted down local officials that decided to accept humanitarian supplies from Russia or negotiated with Russian forces to arrange corridors for civilian evacuations.

On March 1, for example, Volodymyr Strok, the mayor of the eastern city of Kreminna in the Ukrainian-controlled side of Lugansk, was kidnapped by men in military uniform, according to his wife, and shot in the heart.

On March 3, pictures of Strok’s visibly tortured body appeared. A day before his murder, Struk had reportedly urged his Ukrainian colleagues to negotiate with pro-Russian officials.

Anton Gerashchenko, an advisor to the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs, celebrated the mayor’s murder, declaring on his Telegram page (see below): “There is one less traitor in Ukraine. The mayor of Kreminna in Luhansk region, former deputy of Luhansk parliament was found killed.”

According to Geraschenko, Strok had been judged by the “court of the people’s tribunal.”

We already knew the type of people we were dealing with. This kind of evil just reinforces it!

Nothing new under the Ukraine sun, and not just with *elensky. The glorious Maidan opened the floodgates to murder, and terrorism has been taught by the best teachers available; hence, the standard practice of using civilians as live shields in residential areas.

"Since the country gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, more than 50 journalists have been killed across Ukraine — including eight since 2014." https://jfj.fund/no-conclusions-in-2015-murder-of-reviled-pro-russian-journalist-buzyna/
