Парагвай, Аргентина, Луганск

Грэм Филлипс

Когда в первый раз меня захватила Национальная гвардия, Май 2014, в Киеве – с посольством – мы заключили “джентльменское соглашение” – если я буду держатся подальше от Украины паре месяцев, то могу вернутся без каких либо проблем! Я отправился в Южную Америку.

Лучше не говорить о Чемпионате Мира – Английская сборная не долго продолжала свои соревнования. После этого я поехал в Парагвай, жил там в течении недели.

Вот мой “мини-документальный фильм” из Асунсьона!

Бедные, но очень дружелюбные люди. Я провел там очень интересно и хорошо время! Ходил к водопаду Игуасу в Аргентине – это одна из самых удивительно красивых вещей, которую я когда-либо видел в своей жизни!

Но, здесь в невероятном месте, чувствовал что в это время мне нужно вернутся на Донбасс. Я возвратился в Англию, собрал гуманитарную помощь и приехал в середине июля на Донбасс. Затем на 2-ой рабочий день меня захватили украинцы, запретили въезд на 3 года. Ведь сам держал свое слова – не был в “Украина” уже 2 месяцев,  кажется “джентльменское соглашение”не действует.

После моей 2-ой депортации, мой канал RT сказал мне: “Грэм, мы тебя действительно любим, но ты нас не слушаешься – мы говорили вам, не ходить в аэропорт. В данный момент, мы не будем с Вами сотрудничать.”

Таким образом,я вернулся в Луганск уже не сотрудничая с каналом. Прибыл туда 18 августа.

Есть еще конечно и я много публиковал видео того периода. Первые, мои фотографии из Луганска август, сентябрь 2014 года – ни один человек кто там был в это время не забудут те моменты. Не было электричества, воды, магазины не работали, денег мало, еды также, постоянные обстрелы с украинской стороны вот как это было.

Будучи в Луганске, я вспоминал: “Я был в очень красивых местах“. Но, Луганск был красив, другой красотою – красотою человеческой души. Люди которые, пережили лето 2014, никогда не сдадутся.

Press Release: CALL FOR WITNESSES MH17

Please note – this is a Press Release from the official MH17 investigation, does not reflect my own views or findings on the tragedy – Graham Phillips

In the criminal investigation into the crash of flight MH17, the international Joint Investigation Team issues a call for witnesses from Eastern-Ukraine. The investigation team investigates various scenarios. A scenario is that from this region MH17 has been taken down on July 17th 2014, 16.20 hr.

Within the scope of this scenario the investigation team is looking for people that can provide more information on the transport, the crew and the firing of a BUK missile system in the Donbass area, Eastern Ukraine, in the days around the crash of MH17 on July 17th 2014.

Previously a general call for witnesses had been released in the wake of the international recovery mission. At this stage in the criminal investigation, the investigation team has a clearer picture of the possible causes of the crash. It is therefore logical to release a second more specific call for witnesses.

This call for witnesses does not mean that the police and public prosecution service already have clearly established what the cause is of the crash of flight MH17. More investigation is needed. It is too early to draw any conclusions about the cause of the plane crash. For that reason in this call for witnesses the request is explicitly aimed at anybody who can help to solve this tragedy.

Today the call for witnesses is distributed via websites and social media-channels of law enforcement and legal authorities and newssites of newspapers, radio- en tv-stations. The call for witnesses is presented in a short movie, Russian spoken with English subtitles. The movie shows images of the transport in Eastern-Ukraine of a BUK missile system on a lowloader truck. The movie also contains parts of intercepted phone calls between separatists.

Regarding the call for witnesses is stressed that all information in relation to the crash of MH17 is welcome. Witnesses who have relevant information that points into another investigative direction are also welcome to contact the Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

Witnesses can leave or upload information on the website of the Joint Investigation Team (www.jitmh17.com) but also have the possibility to contact the JIT by phone or email.

The international criminal investigation into the crash of flight MH17 is undertaken by Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine.

This notice has also been published on the website of the next of kin.

Dove Sono Andati a Finire Tutti i Nazisti Ucraini?

Di Graham Phillips

Ricordate i neo-nazi ucraini? Erano ovunque. Sky lanciò l’allarme: Euro 2012 Minaccia Neo-nazi per i tifosi inglesi –

Fullscreen capture 28032015 171033.bmp

Il Mail lasciò passare l’idea che i tifosi inglesi stessero andando incontro ad una vera imboscata: Banda di nazi in agguato dei tifosi inglesi

Fullscreen capture 28032015 175757.bmp
Fullscreen capture 28032015 190100.bmpAnche giornali più rinomati rimarcarono le gesta dei neonazi, Il Telegraph riportò : “Lunedi sera il documentario della BBC ha ampiamente mostrato cori razzisti durante le partite, saluti nazisti di routine, attacchi violenti a spettatori asiatici durante un incontro con l’Ucraina” Ed è riferendosi a quel documenatario BBC cosi scioccante che Sol Campbell, ex giocatore inglese, paventò il rischio per i tifosi inglesi che avessero intrapreso il viaggio per Euro 2012 ‘di tornare a casa in una bara‘.

3 anni più tardi c’è una guerra reale che viene combattuta nel Donbass, un tempo parte dell’Ucraina, con molte delle formazioni ucraine vergognosamente reclutate proprio tra quei gruppi nazisti dell’Ucraina dell’ovest messi alla gogna dalla stampa occidentale nel 2012.

Qui palesi esponenti del Nazismo del famoso battaglione Azov

Azov Nazi 2 Azov Nazis Nazi Azov1

Azov Nazi 3

Tuttavia, la stessa stampa occidentale che correva a condannare il neonazismo nel 2012, nel 2015 si trovò in uno stato d’animo più indulgente. Questo dal Daily Mail (testo in realtà ripreso da Reuters)- Ho sottolineato alcune frasi –

URZUF, Ukraine, March 25 (Reuters) Il battaglione Azov di estrema destra, il quale simbolo ricorda una svastica nera su campo giallo, si prepara a difendere la città portuale di Mariupol nel sudest ucraino da un attacco imminente dei separatisti pro russi.

La militia ultranazionalista, forte di un migliaio di appartenenti, si è fatta la reputazione di essere una fiera forza di opposizione durante il conflitto che dura da quasi un anno contro i ribelli dell’ est Ucraina sostenuti dalla Russia, e disprezza gli sforzi di pace.

Ma le opinioni radicali dei comandanti di un gruppo affiliato alla guardia nazionale ucraina ,la quale opera a stretto contatto con l’esercito, e l’uso di simboli che evocano gli emblemi nazisti ha causato allarme ad Ovest e in Russia, e potrebbe tornare a tormentare la leaderschip pro occidentale di Kiev quando i combattimenti finiranno.

Azov HitlerNel 2012 dei tifosi di calcio che facevano il saluto nazista erano dei “criminali”, ora un battaglione che entra in battaglia indossando svastiche, i cui membri difficilmente potrebbero essere più franchi nella loro venerazione per il nazismo (foto a sinistra) semplicemente “assomiglia” e “evoca” il nazismo. Naturalmente non più di quanto si adatti difficilmente a loro la definizione di ” fieri combattenti”, “difensori” contro l’eterno male, quei separatisti pro-russi, lo spauracchio preferito dei media occidentali.

ll desiderio di Azov di esaltare il nazismo è così estremo che adesso falsificano le foto. Falsificano le foto per includerci le svastiche. Una scansione mostra che la svastica è stata inserita con photoshop in questa foto, per essere poi mostrata orgogliosamente sul sito di social networking di Oleg Penya membro di Azov.

1Azov

VitaBasti pensare che se i neonazisti ucraini fossero cattivi quanto i tifosi che salutavano col braccio teso nel 2012 improvvisamente i “separatisti pro russi” avrebbero ragione… in verità, naturalmente, sono infinitamente peggio. Cosa succede quando sguinzagli dei neonazisti in una zona di guerra, li infiammi con l’odio verso la Russia, lasci credere che chiunque nel Donbass è un separatista pro-russo, gli dai pieno supporto dei media occidentali… che fanno cose come queste. Vita Zaverukha, membro neonazista del battaglione Aidar imbraccia un lanciarazzi, colpisce un villaggio, dei civili, nel Donbass.

Avete avuto la fortuna di trovarlo su qualche media occidentale? Difficile, ma potete trovare facilmente Vita Zaverukha, lei è la pagina centrale di Elle in Francia, descritta come un “tipo speciale di combattente” in un articolo che non avrebbe potuto essere più splendente se l’avesse scritto la stessa mamma di Vita.

Vita Zaverukha Elle

Qui qun paio di foto in più della “combattente speciale” –

Vita Nazi Vera Nazi1

Naturalmente la stampa occidentale deve in qualche modo,
riconoscere il neo-nazismo dilagante tra le forze ucraine. Ma
come possono farlo senza ridefinirli come “i cattivi”?
Semplice- li intervistano per poi pubblicare le più
attenuanti fra le loro auto-assoluzioni.

Fullscreen capture 28032015 181600.bmpIn un intervista a USA TODAY, lui ammette di essere un nazista e dice con una risata che non più di metà dei suoi
compagni sono seguaci del nazismo. Dice di essere sostenitore di una forte leadership per l’Ucraina, come fu per la
Germania durante la seconda guerra mondiale, ma si oppone al genocidio nazista degli ebrei. Le minoranze verranno tollerate fintanto che saranno pacifiche e non richiederanno privilegi speciali,dice, e la proprietà degli oligarchi benestanti sarà confiscata e nazionalizzata…

Andriy Diachenko, un portavoce della brigata Azov dichiara che soltanto il 10% o 20% dei membri del gruppo sono nazisti. “So che Alex è un nazista, ma è la sua ideologia personale. Non ha niente a che fare con l’ideologia ufficiale di Azov”. Dice Diachenko “È un sergente ben addestrato e un buon instruttore per le competenze nelle tattiche e nelle armi”

Così la stampa occidentale risponde alla sua stessa domanda, una delle domande chiavi della guerra nel Donbass- Cosa fai quando non è più conveniete chiamare neonazisti le persone che avevi definito neonazisti? Prova a non chiamarli più così, ma se proprio devi, trova delle foto simpatiche e fai di essi dei buon neo-nazi!

Busting Ukraine Fakes (#2) – ‘Russian Elite Troops’ in the Ukrainian Army and Rob Pulse

By Graham Phillips

Fullscreen capture 29032015 230350.bmpThere will be more to come on Rob Pulse, actually there’s enough for an entire series on Ukraine’s hapless, yet relentless propagandist – on Twitter since December 2010, with near 32,000 Tweets putting him as a 20+ a day Tweeter, yet since troubles in Ukraine, and Donbass began, much more active and even often double that a day now.

The first question about Rob would be, naturally, who is he? ‘Rob Pulse’, an invented name, used for his tag, his name ‘Silver Surfer’ taken from the Fantastic Four series of films. Rob thinks he’s an ‘investigate journalist’, yet the only record of his ‘investigate journalism’ – credit in a couple of hit-job pieces by notorious pro-Ukraine propaganda outlet The Interpreter.

Скриншот 25.03.2015 223404He’s actually called Rob Schultz, where he’s from is unknown – he lists his locations on Twitter as Miami and London, yet it’s unclear if he’s in either. His user photo is an opaque one of himself in shades, yet there do exist photos online of Rob Schultz. However, Pulse/Schultz is so touchy about these, if you post them on Twitter (which I did in response to his maliciously posting the unblurred face of a young girl holding a Russia flag in the Ukraine city of Nikolaev, putting her life in danger), Rob will immediately complain to Twitter, have the photos removed –

Fullscreen capture 24032015 232925 Скриншот 25.03.2015 222501 RobPulse

Producing pro-Ukraine propaganda is exactly what Rob does, and while he stays pretty faithful to the pro-Ukraine script in general, he often blunders off into territory even they won’t touch. So, the standard, oft-peddled Ukraine line of everyone filmed in Donbass being ‘Russian actors’ and often the ‘same person’, well, suffice to say Rob follows it zealously – here on January 16th –

Fullscreen capture 29032015 153159.bmp

Sadly for Rob, he got it completely wrong here, and for a man who loves nothing more than self-congratulation on Twitter (‘I picked the right tweet to translate‘ just one of many self-endorsements), had to issue a rather less than humble admission that, once more, he’d cocked up –

Fullscreen capture 29032015 160305.bmp

Not learning from this lesson, just a week later, on January 23rd, Rob was now saying that people filmed at the scene of the Donetsk trolleybus shelling tragedy were ‘Russian actors’, the ‘same people’ (as the above even). But even his normally loyal followers, now near 8000, spluttered at this, even more ridiculous than his earlier claims.

Fullscreen capture 29032015 234135.bmp

Fullscreen capture 29032015 152915.bmp

This goof such a doozy Pulse deleted all his Tweets on the theme. But it didn’s stop him – in between then and now, there have been numerous other cock-ups from the blundering propagandist, who finds ‘Russian soldiers’ in every fighter in Donbass ‘Russian tanks’ in every military vehicle. But his one of a couple of days ago reached a new level, even with Pulse’s lengthy background of balls-ups. From looking through my photos, Rob found ‘Russian Elite Troops’ in Ukraine on the day of Crimea’s ‘illegal referendum’.

Fullscreen capture 28032015 013419.bmp Fullscreen capture 28032015 013427.bmp Fullscreen capture 28032015 020707.bmp

The fairly major flaw in this latest assertion of ‘Russian troops’, is that this is actually the Ukrainian army. I know, I stopped to film them here, by a base of multiple Ukrainian military vehicles and troops, just off, and on, Chongar peninsular, this particular point by the first ‘X’, some 20km from the Crimean border, and the first pro-Russia blockpost

Fullscreen capture 28032015 030040.bmp

Here’s video, from the 16th – where I ended up spending some time with them after my cat locked me out of my car at that time, and I enlisted their help –

The soldiers were from Nikolaev, regular Ukrainian army. I passed them coming out of Crimea 2 days later. And here, on one of their APCs, the Ukrainian flag flying –

And there we have it – it takes a standard pro-Ukraine propagandist to find ‘Russian troops’ in the Novorossiya Forces. It takes Rob Pulse to find them in the Ukrainian army!

Où sont tous les Ukrainiens Néo-Nazis?

Graham Phillips

Rappelez-vous les néonazis de l’Ukraine, ils étaient partout. Sky a prévenu – Euro 2012: la menace néonazie aux supporters anglais

Fullscreen capture 28032015 171033.bmp

Selon Daily Mail, les supporters anglais étaient sur le point de marcher dans un véritable piège – la foule nazie guette les supporters anglais 

Fullscreen capture 28032015 190100.bmpMême les journaux de grand format se sont vu engagés dans l’action néonazie, le Telegraph notant – ‘Le documentaire de BBC projeté lundi soir a montré les cris de singe très courants lors des matchs, des salutations nazies, des attaques violentes aux spectateurs d’origine asiatique pendant le match en Ukraine‘ – tout cela a fait penser à l’ancien joueur britannique Sol Campbell que les supporters anglais qui ont fait un voyage à l’Euro 2012 puissent ‘rentrer dans un cercueil’, à tel point le documentaire de BBC l’a choqué.

Fullscreen capture 28032015 175757.bmp

Trois ans plus tard , c’est une véritable guerre qui se déroule en Donbass, ancienne partie de l’Ukraine, où les forces armées ukrainiennes incluent d’une manière cynique des groups néonazis provenant de l’Ouest de l’Ukraine , tellement condamnés par la presse européenne en 2012. Ici, c’est un bataillon ukrainien Azov, connu pour le soutien ouvert du nazisme

Azov Nazi 2 Azov Nazis Nazi Azov1

Azov Nazi 3

Ainsi, le presse occidentale qui, en 2012, s’est pressée de condamner le néonazisme, en 2015 se voit plus inclinée à pardonner. Cet extrait est tiré du Daily Mail (le texte original appartenant à Reuters), j’ai mis en gras une partie de l’extrait :

URZUF, Ukraine, 25 mars (Reuters) – Le bataillon Azov de l’extrême droite dont le symbole ressemble à la croix gammée sur le fond jaune, se prépare à défendre le port de Marioupol situé dans le sud-ouest de l’Ukraine de l’attaque largement attendue des séparatistes proprusses.

La milice composée d’une millier d’ultranationalistes participant depuis un an dans le conflit avec les rebelles prorusses dans le sud-ouest de l’Ukraine, a une réputation d’une unité armée progouvernementale féroce et dédaigneuse des efforts de paix.

Mais les points de vue radicaux des commandants du group affilié à la garde nationale ukrainienne qui travaille côte-à-côte de l’armée tout comme l’utilisation des symboles évoquant les insignes nazis ont causé l’anxiété chez l’Occident et la Russie et pouvaient revenir hanter l’administration prooccidentale de Kiev quand les combats seraient finis.

Azov HitlerEn 2012 les supporters faisant ‘sieg heil’ étaient une ‘foule nazie’, aujourd’hui un bataillon qui se bat sous les croix gammées et dont les membres manifestent ouvertement leur vénération du nazisme (la photo à gauche), à peine ‘rappellent’ et ‘évoquent’ le nazisme. Bien sûr, ils ‘évoquent’, pas plus que l’on peut les appeler ‘féroce combattants’, ‘défenseurs’ contre le mal éternel – ces ‘séparatistes prorusses’, le ‘mauvais gars’ favori des médias occidentaux.

Le désir d’Azov de prôner le nazisme a atteint un tel point qu’ils ont commencé à falsifier des photos. De fausses photos qui montrent les swastikas. D’après un examen scanographique , les swastikas sur cette photo ont été photoshoppés et puis ont été publiés dans le réseau social du membre d’Azov Oleg Penya

1Azov

Figurez-vous seulement si ces néonazis ukrainiens étaient aussi mauvais que les Vitasupporters ukrainiens de 2012 tendant le bras dans la salutation nazie, et soudainement les ‘séparatistes prorusses’ auraient raison… La vérité bien évidemment est qu’ils sont infinement beaucoup plus mauvais. Que se passé-t-il quand vous déchaînez un néonazi et le jetez dans une zone de combat en l’allumant avec la haine de la Russie, la confiance que chaque habitant de Donbass est un ‘séparatiste prorusse’ et quand vous lui assurez votre support absolu, le support des medias occidentaux?… Alors, ils font des choses pareilles: un néonazi membre du bataillon Aidar, Vita Zaverukha, prend un lance-rockettes, tire sur un village, sur la population civile, sur le Donbass.

Quelle chance de trouver cette information dans les médias occidentaux? Presque nulle mais vous pouvez facilement la trouver –une edition française d’’Elle’ lui a consacré une double page, elle est décrite comme un ‘type particulier de combattant’dans un article qui ne pouvait pas être plus exalté même s’il avait été écrit par le mere de Vita.

Vita Zaverukha Elle

Voilà encore quelques photos du ‘combattant du type particulier’–

Vita Nazi Vera Nazi1

Certes, la presse occidentale se voit obligée à reconnaître à un certain point que néonazisme règne dans les fores armées ukrainiennes. Mais comment peuvent-ils le faire sans les rebaptiser ‘mauvais gars’? Simple – parlez avec eux, puis publiez leurs autopardons les plus mitigés –

Fullscreen capture 28032015 181600.bmpDans un interview avec USA TODAY il a reconnu qu’il était nazi et a ajouté en riant qu’il n’y avait pas plus que la moitié de ses amis qui étaient nazis. Il a dit aussi qu’il était en faveur du leadership fort pour l’Ukraine tout comme l’Allemagne pendant la Deuxième guerre mondiale mais qu’il était contre le genocide des juifs par les nazis. Les minorités devaient être tolérées tant qu’elles étaient attachées à la paix et ne demandaient pas de privilèges et la propriété des oligarques était à exproprier et à nationaliser…

Andriy Diachenko, attaché de presse de la brigade Azov, a affirmé que le group ne comptait que de 10% à 20% de nazis. “Je sais qu’Alex est nazi, mais c’est son idéologie personnelle. Cela n’a rien avoir avec l’idéologie officielle d’Azov,” a dit Diachenko. “C’est un bon sergent de l’école de formation du soldat et un bon moniteur de science tactique et de maniement des armes”.

Ainsi, la presse ocidentale répond à sa propre question, une des questions-clé de la guerre en Donbass – que revient-il de faire quand il n’est plus convenant d’appeler néonazis les gens que vous aviez appelé néonazis? Essayez de ne plus les appeler comme ça, mais si vous y êtes absolument obligés, alors trouvez une photo d’eux agréable et faites-les avoir l’air des personnes sympatiques!
