U.S. and NATO Allies Blockade Russia’s Economy, Then Blame Russia for World Hunger

Friday, 27 May, 2022 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Can Russia be possibly portrayed as any more evil and monstrous than that, as per Western propaganda narratives of Russophobia?

In an incredible feat of hypocrisy, the United States and European Union are accusing Russia of using food exports and global hunger as a weapon.

The Power of Lies

Thursday, 26 May 2022 — Craig Murray

Craig Murray

The comments on Peter Oborne’s excellent article on Julian Assange in the Guardian last week are a damning indictment of the media’s ability to instil near universal acceptance of “facts” which are easily proven lies.

The Guardian chose as its “Guardian pick” to head the section a comment full of these entirely untrue assertions.

Indo-Pacific power dynamic in radical shift

Thursday, 27 May 2022 — Indian Punchline

A Russian Tu-95 strategic bomber takes off during a 13-hour joint air patrol with China in Asia-Pacific region, at an unidentified location (image released by Russian MOD on May 24, 2022)

The joint air patrol over the waters of the Sea of Japan and the East China Sea on Monday by an air task force composed of Russian Tu-95MS capable of carrying nuclear weapons and Chinese H-6K strategic bombers couldn’t have been a knee-jerk reaction to US President Joe Biden’s Asia tour, leave alone his provocative remarks conjuring up an apocalyptic US-China war over Taiwan.

Thursday, 26 May 2022 — Youtube

Captured Ukrainian soldier urges his fellow soldiers to lay down their arms “…Our commanders threatened us, whoever leaves the position he will be shot on the spot.

Russian MoD: Briefing on the results of the analysis of documents related to the military biological activities of the United States on the territory of Ukraine

Saturday, 28 May 2022 — The Saker

It is currently the only reporting document on the implementation of the Convention in the framework of the Confidence Building Measures.

From Bad to Worse

Friday, 27 May 2022 — The van says…

No motivation, guns or hope. Videos such as these show that hopelessness is the rule rather than the exception across most of the Ukraine today.

Preamble. 

Anybody who’s anybody knows that the situation in the Ukraine has gone from bad to worse to helpless over the last month. This article will look at how this is affecting the efforts of Kiev and its backers and what this will mean as we look to the future.

The Russia-Ukraine Conflict; a Proxy War between Russia and NATO

Friday, 27 May 2022 — Geopolitica.RU

Leonid Savin

For the future development of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, there are at least three scenarios and mixed options between them. First is a surrender of Ukrainian forces. It depends on the political decision of president Zelensky. But because NATO countries still providing weapon systems and arms to Ukraine I think it is not possible in near future. The second scenario is protracted conflict. It may be frozen or escalated but will be limited by region. The third variant is most dangerous and means more active involvement of NATO countries against Russia and Belarus (our ally and military partner) or Transnistria where the Russian military base and stocks are located. Kaliningrad enclave of Russia also is a possible target for the military attack of the West. In this case, Russia will strike back and nuclear weapons may be used.

After the First Interrogations of the “Azovstal” Surrendered Ghouls, the Following Picture Emerges…

Sunday, 22 May 2022 — Stalker Zone

1. Almost all admit that they profess a Nazi ideology based on Russophobia and the glorification of Nazi criminals. Any crimes against the life of Russians and the Russian-speaking population of the former Ukraine were deliberately justified on the basis of the “racial superiority” of Ukrainians over the “Rusnya”. Members of the “Azov” battalion were directly instructed to physically abuse the civilian population of the “Donetsk and Lugansk regions”, as well as all those “suspected of sympathising with Russia”.

UK: Why can’t police acknowledge institutional racism?

Thursday, 26 May 2022 — Institute of Race Relations

How can an organisation become ‘actively anti-racist’ without acknowledging the existence of institutional racism? The National Police Chiefs’ Council and College of Policing this week launched its Police Race Action Plan, tasked with ‘Improving policing for Black people’. Like so many plans and strategies before it, it is laden with commitments to ‘overhaul systems, processes and procedures’, promote good governance and implement a range of workstreams to tackle disproportionalities in the use of force, and to restore trust with the Black community.

And Then There Was No More Empire All of a Sudden: The Twenty-First Newsletter (2022)

Thursday, 26 May 2022 — The Tricontinental

Bisa Butler USA I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings 2019Bisa Butler (USA), I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, 2019.

Dear friends,

Greetings from the desk of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research.

Empire denies its own existence. It does not exist as an empire but only as benevolence, with its mission to spread human rights and sustainable development across the world. However, that perspective means nothing in Havana nor in Caracas, where ‘human rights’ has come to mean regime change, and where ‘sustainable development’ has come to mean the throttling of their people through sanctions and blockades. It is from the standpoint of the victims of empire that clarity comes.

Ukraine after 90 days of war

Wednesday, 25 May 2022 — Indian Punchline

by M. K. BHADRAKUMAR

Amidst intense fighting under way, Russian forces entered Severodonetsk city in Luhansk, Donbass region, May 24, 2022

The Western narrative that Russia is facing defeat at the hands of the Ukrainian military is falling apart. The contrived narrative that Ukraine was “winning” made Kiev delusional which in turn created conditions for Washington and London to extend the war and incrementally enter into it laterally and turn it into a war of attrition against Russia.

NATO vs Russia: what happens next

Tuesday, 24 May, 2022 — The Saker

In Davos and beyond, NATO’s upbeat narrative plays like a broken record, while on the ground, Russia is stacking up wins that could sink the Atlantic order.

By Pepe Escobar, posted with the author’s permission and crossposted with The Cradle

Three months after the start of Russia’s Operation Z in Ukraine, the battle of The West (12 percent) against The Rest (88 percent) keeps metastasizing. Yet the narrative – oddly – remains the same.
