IN UKRAINE THE WESTERN POWERS HAVE CREATED A POISONOUS WEB OF LIES
Never before has western society been so heavily propagandised as now. The effort of the western powers to maintain their dominance has overwhelmed all previously held ethical standards.

They did everything possible to convince everyone that Ukraine was in the right, the aggrieved party, victim of an unprovoked attack by an evil adversary whose intent was wholly malicious. No stone was left unturned in this campaign of unrelenting falsehood and purposeful misrepresentation.

Ukraine’s president was portrayed as a modern day Churchill when in fact he was no more than his recent history showed him to be, a second-rate actor and third-rate comedian. Those thousands in Ukraine who bore swastika tattoos we were told to ignore as ‘mostly harmless’ when in fact a significant number of them had already been convicted of crimes including murder, abduction and rape.

A continual array of crimes were attributed to the Russian authorities and their military. Intentional attacks on civilians when the entire Russian campaign was designed to minimise harm to them. It was said that Russia wished to occupy Ukraine in its entirety when the stated goal of Russia was to ensure the safety from harm only of the Russian-speaking majority in Ukraine’s south-east.

Russia was accused of an atrocity in the Ukrainian town of Bucha when all the evidence showed that those killed had been those who had taken assistance from the Russian army and had been killed by Ukrainian special forces after being identified as such by neighbours.

The killing of sheltering civilians in Mariuopol’s oldest theatre by blowing it up was immediately attributed to Russia when again, all existing evidence points to it being carried out by those who hate both Russia and the Russian=speaking majority of the city. A missile attack on a large group of civilians waiting at Kramatorsk train station hoping to leave the city to safety was also attributed to Russia when it was clearly not the case.

The vital aspect of the conflict in Ukraine to understand is the hatred with which Ukrainians living in western Ukraine who speak Ukrainian hold those who live in the east of Ukraine and who speak Russian. That hatred makes them capable of anything that will inflict pain, injury and mortal wounds on those people and in addition lie about the attribution of their acts to harm the reputation of Russia.

The long campaign against Vladimir Putin where the greatest number of falsehoods have been told stems back, not to the year 2000 when he was elected president of Russia but to the year 2007 when it first became clear to the political elites of the western world that he would not be their willing subject as they had thought until that year. It was in Munich in February of 2007 that he stated very clearly in an address to them that Russia would plough its own furrow and not be dictated to by any one nation or group of nations. He became public enemy number one for the western powers at this precise point and has remained so ever since. From that point on he has been portrayed falsely as the Devil Incarnate and a new Hitler.

The misrepresentation of Putin, of Russian intent and activity across every sphere of endeavour, not only within Ukraine continues as a daily routine for every western political and media elite.

When, in the initial years after the Maidan insurrection in Kiev, the Russian-speaking majority in south-eastern Ukraine were shelled remorselessly by the Ukrainian army and its neo-Nazi militia helpers, the impression was always given in western media that their victims were as a result of actions by Russia. This was either clearly inferred or stated baldly as fact. Those who wished to verify the truth had no access to it via any mainstream news entity in the West. Those few who had the interest, who took the time and made the effort soon discovered the extent to which the true facts were being concealed in the West and too, to what degree western audiences were being grievously misled.

The misleading of western audiences regarding events in Ukraine has been constant since the turn of events began there in 2014. A totally one-sided campaign of misinformation has been conducted in the West, a campaign which continues to this day. Only in the last few days in this month of February 2023 the BBC showed film of devastated homes in the south-eastern Ukrainian city of Odessa. The vital context of this destruction that was left unvoiced was that this destruction including the crater in the residential street was caused not by Russian missiles but by sub-standard Ukrainian air-defence missiles that had misfired.

The Ukraine war has exemplified in gruesome and disgusting detail the old adage that the first victim of war is the truth. Propaganda, misinformation, disinformation, psychological operations and every other scurrilous device under the sun has been used to wage yet another war of choice by the West, this time at the enormous and utterly tragic expense of the Ukrainian people.

Russia made every possible effort to avoid this war. From 2014 when hostilities began after the Ukrainian army began attacking the people of the Donbass region of south-eastern Ukraine Russia has sought to map a route to peace. The Minsk process designed to forward this goal proved in vain due to the disingenuous and malicious approach by the western powers to it. They sought, through it, to make successive Ukrainian regimes even more militarily powerful with the eventual aim of waging even more war.

Only a month after Russia was forced by innumerable actions by the West to achieve the aims of protecting the Russian-speaking people of the Donbass region and of itself from a malevolent Ukrainian regime via its becoming a NATO state on its border, Russia initiated peace negotiations. These bore fruit in March 2022 when significant progress was announced from Istanbul where the talks between the two sides where being held. Russia removed its troops from around the capital Kiev, sent there with the goal not of conquest but of bringing the regime there to its senses and to negotiate a peaceful outcome. This avenue toward a peaceful resolution of all areas of concern was swiftly blocked via a visit to Kiev by then British prime minister Boris Johnson. This one act condemned upwards of half a million Ukrainians to their deaths and the potential destruction of Ukraine as a viable state.

Now, after all the misrepresentations, the fabrications, the constant propaganda, fables and bare-faced lies concerning Ukraine, Russia and both their presidents the truth is now beginning to emerge. The western powers are beginning to be perceived as they should be, as a combined malign influence, not only in Ukraine of course but broadly across the world and specifically at the moment in the Middle East where their past influence ought to have warned western populations of how little they could be trusted anywhere.

What has occurred in Ukraine is an unmitigated disaster for the people there. It was an outcome never once desired by Russia and one that Russia strove with every will in the world for the best part of a decade to avoid. However, the aims of the western powers, to weaken and ultimately break up the Russian Federation through the tool of continual war in Ukraine, overruled all hopes of finding a way through to a peaceful resolution of Russia’s clear concerns regarding its safety and that of the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine.

Western elite entities engaged in a continual campaign of presenting barriers to conflict resolution, of creating never-ending pressure undermining attempts by Russia to find a peaceful way through to its national security, and finally in an unrelenting campaign of distortion which has been continually fed to western populations right up to the present day.
