On the three year commemoration of the tragic shootdown of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH-17, Brisbane, Australia based Watchdog Media has released the most thorough and accurate chronological portrayal of events occurring between the start of Ukraine’s Euromaidan in November 2013 and the tragic destruction of Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17 on July 17, 2014.
Between 2013 and 2017, the Watch Dog Media Institute compiled and archived the largest known video volumes of first-person video related to the Ukraine war, as well as the largest and most substantial amount of all mainstream media footage related to such.

Ever since serious protest broke out in Ukraine in February the Western mainstream media, particularly in the United States, has seriously downplayed the fact that the usual suspects – the US/European Union/NATO triumvirate – have been on the same side as the neo-Nazis. In the US it’s been virtually unmentionable. I’m sure that a poll taken in the United States on this issue would reveal near universal ignorance of the numerous neo-Nazi actions, including publicly calling for death to “Russians, Communists and Jews”. But in the past week the dirty little secret has somehow poked its head out from behind the curtain a bit.

You won’t see or read about them on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Fox, MSNBC, The New York Times, or virtually any of America’s other propaganda-media, except that these people are “terrorists,” and that they thus constitute threats to U.S. national security; but, here they are, speaking for themselves, which America’s propaganda-media won’t let you hear, because the U.S. Government — the regime in Washington — actually created these “terrorists,” when it overthrew their government via U.S.-manipulated “Maidan” protests in February, and replaced it with ours, which bombed their homes; so, you’ll now see and hear these people, right here:

Western Ukraine’s “anti-terrorist operation” against rebels in Eastern Ukraine has the makings of what could degenerate from scattered atrocities to ethnic cleansing to genocide. It already is a nasty war to suppress an ethnic minority through the use of military force, complete with references to the targeted population as insects and animals.

Here are photos of residents in southeastern Ukraine and of their homes that we bombed yesterday, and you see the corpses, and the grieving survivors. But Americans call them “terrorists,” even though these people never were that, and even though America is funding the terrorism against all the residents in southeastern Ukraine, to force them to either die or else flee, so that they won’t be able to vote in future Ukrainian elections, and so that the government we installed in a February coup in Kiev will stay installed, even if Ukraine becomes again a democracy. The residents in that region had voted overwhelmingly for the President whom we overthrew on February 22nd.

Significant protests against the war being waged in eastern Ukraine by the governing regime in Kyiv are taking place by the conscript soldiers of the Ukraine army and their families, friends and supporters. The protests are entirely unreported in mainstream, western media. They take on a renewed urgency as a result of Kyiv’s July 1 announcement that it is ending a ten day ceasefire and resuming its military assaults against the towns and cities in the east.
The following article is a report on some of theses antiwar protests and on the harsh crackdown on democratic rights that accompanies the NATO-backed war that began in earnest in April.

It’s a video showing the inside of Odessa Trades Unions Building while hundreds of people who opposed Obama’s coup that had overthrown Ukraine’s freely elected President (the last President who was elected by the entire country) were murdered by Obama’s thugs, on May 2nd. This incident in the Trade Unions Building was even more violent than Kiev’s February coup itself, and it sparked Ukraine’s civil war, because it reeked of “genocide” (both intent and action) against the vast majority of residents in southeastern Ukraine, who (like those victims) don’t want to be ruled by people who wished them dead. But unlike those victims, they now know to a certainty that this indeed is the intent of the people whom Obama has made their leaders.

The violent coming to power of a rightist regime in Kyiv, Ukraine in late February 2014 has opened an exceptionally dangerous political period in Europe. For the first time since World War II, a European government has representatives of fascist parties as ministers. These are the ministers of the armed forces, prosecution service and agriculture, and deputy ministers of national security (police), education and anti-corruption.

On June 7-8 a conference of antiwar left forces from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus was held in Minsk. Its purpose was to strengthen the unity of internationalists of the three countries in the fight against the rampant violence, nationalist hysteria and repressions on both sides of the Ukrainian-Russian border. Below is text of the conference’s declaration. We invite others to sign it. Translated by David Mandel.

Recently, Germany’s Der Spiegel featured a lengthy editorial damning Russia regarding Ukraine; it was titled “How Russia Is Winning the Propaganda War,” and it made many allegations, none with documentation, and not a single one with a link to assist the magazine’s online readers to reach easily the presumed (but unidentified) sources. It was the type of propaganda for which Fox “News” in the U.S. has become famous, though Spiegel is centrist (not “right wing”).

Ukrainians have a sad date to commemorate in September 2014 – the concentration camps in Terezin and Talerhof were built to isolate the pro-Russian segment of population residing in Austria-Hungarian Galicia. Thousands of Rusyns lost their lives because they had sympathies for Russia and wanted to preserve their historic self-identification. They refused to call themselves Ukrainians as the authorities of Austria – Hungary wanted them to. So they went to the camps.

To cease fire this week. Nobody could make out what it means in practice (is it pulling troops out or turning Donbass into scorched earth?). “We have to stop fire this week. For me, every day of people dying, every day of Ukraine paying such a high price is an unacceptable one,” President Poroshenko said in an apparent reference to the fighting around Slavyansk as he opened the first meeting of a three-party contact group on the implementation of the peace plan to establish peace and calm in eastern Ukraine. The establishment of the group with such a long and complicated name appears to be the major result of Poroshenko’s first foreign trip after the presidential election. The Ukrainian President discussed a peace plan with French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin on the margins of the D-Day commemorations in Normandy.

Meeting with Ukraine’s billionaire President-Elect Petro Poroshenko in Warsaw Wednesday, President Barack Obama declared his full backing for the regime’s so-called “anti-terrorism operation” in eastern Ukraine and promised new military supplies and training to carry out what is rapidly developing into a bloodbath.

I have watched the unfolding coup d’etat in Ukraine from it’s very beginning in late November 2013 in Kiev. I have watched a steady stream of western dignitaries and politicians parade through Maidan Square in Kiev, each and every one of them publicly and vocally expressing their open support of the coup d’etat. I find it appalling that the sitting ambassador of the United States of America to the Sovereign Country of Ukraine, Geoffrey R. Pyatt, actively and publicly supported a violent coup d’etat against the sitting and legally elected government of Ukraine and to this day actively and publicly expresses open support for the illegal coup d’etat installed government in Kiev.
