Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi (R) with visiting UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, New Delhi, April 22, 2022

An extraordinary thing about British diplomacy is that it continually looks for ways to stay ahead of the curve and provide added value to its customer across the Atlantic, the United States. That makes the remarks on Ukraine conflict by the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson at his press conference in New Delhi on Friday highly significant.

*Following is a lengthy overview of my recent re-visit to the Donbass, on a two day media delegation, with a brief critique of some of the media’s slanted reporting. It is also a follow up from my 2019 visit to hard hit areas of the Donetsk People’s Republic, after 8 years of Ukraine’s war on the people of the Donetsk & Lugansk Republics.

Watch: The Missing Of Mariupol Special Report (The Search Is On)

1 April, 2022 — Patrick Lancaster

[This is painful, nay heartbreaking to watch but it’s essential that we in the West, know what’s really going on in Eastern Ukraine. The censorship here is now pretty much total. The BBC ‘news’ coverage makes Goebbels look like an amateur! B]

Make Nazism Great Again

The supreme target is regime change in Russia, Ukraine is just a pawn in the game – or worse, mere cannon fodder.

All eyes are on Mariupol. As of Wednesday night, over 70% of residential areas were under control of Donetsk and Russian forces, while Russian Marines, Donetsk’s 107th batallion and Chechen Spetsnaz, led by the charismatic Adam Delimkhanov, had entered the Azov-Stal plant – the HQ of the neo-Nazi Azov batallion.

Who’s To Blame For The Mariupol Maternity & Children’s Hospital Bombing?

Thursday, 10 March 2022 — One World

Who’s To Blame For The Mariupol Maternity & Children’s Hospital Bombing?

The truth behind this incident has yet to be determined, but observers should be extremely cautious in taking anything that the Mainstream Media says as fact. Rather, they should apply a copious amount of skepticism to everything that the US-led West and their Ukrainian proxies claim because the military-strategic dynamics have always decisively been against Kiev so there’s reason to believe that the fascists became desperate enough to do the seemingly unthinkable.

Videos: BBC propaganda and the shooting of civilians in Mariupol

10 May 10, 2014 — Human Rights Investigations

So-called “anti-terror operations” in Mariupol today have seen a number of deaths as Ukrainian military and “National Guard” (an outfit including many virtually untrained neo-fascists) face off against crowds of unarmed protestors. The BBC covered this situation and, whilst admitting the Ukrainian army is killing unarmed civilians, have edited a video to cut out the part where the Ukrainian army shoots a cameraman, injuring him severely and at a man who is on his knees with his hands in the air.

Western Imperialism and Ukrainian Nationalism are Balkanising the Ukraine By Lionel Reynolds

10 May 2014 — Dispatches from the Empire

Yesterday, the Fascistic Ukrainian regime showed its high regard for the social, cultural and political traditions of the Donbas by unleashing armoured APC’s on the streets of Mariupol as thousands celebrated Victory Day – a day that commemorates the defeat of the vile Nazi racist war-machine, together with its opportunistic nationalist and fascist collaborators, by the Soviet people in 1945.

Extraordinary scenes were captured and published on the web.

10 May 2014 —WSWS 

With the open support of Washington and its European allies, the regime installed by Washington and Berlin in last February’s fascist-led putsch is now extending its reign of terror against all popular resistance in Ukraine. That is the significance of the events in the major eastern Ukrainian city of Mariupol yesterday.
