Graham Phillips: People I’ve Interviewed

I very much enjoy doing interviews, and have been fortunate enough to interview many prominent people so far in my career. They include:

Sergey Aksyonov, Prime Minister of Crimea:

Natalya Poklonskaya, then prosecutor General of Crimea: 

Nikolai Azarov, former Prime Minister of Ukraine:

Eugene Roizman mayor of Etakerinburg:

And the list goes on!

My UK Reportage: A Wrap-up!

As  prepare to leave – it’s been an enormously busy last 2 months in the UK, working on the edits of documentary projects, dozens of articles here on the Truth Speaker, and video reportage. There will be one more report to come from the UK, part 2 of this special reportage on the recent terrorist attack in London –

To recap, here was January when I visited the UK parliament to ask at a UK/Ukraine event if they would be mentioning Ukrainian shelling civilian areas of Donbass:

The introduction to my documentary about the murder of Barry Pring

My coverage of the anti-Trump protests in London at the start of February – 

A few days later, and I try to go to a Ukrainian event in London –

And here, I succeed in getting into a Ukrainian propaganda event at the LSE! 

The end of February here, and I visit the Ukrainain Embassy in London – 

March, and a look at what Women’s Day means in London!

Then, my day as a DPR tourist in London!

Masses of reportage from the March for Europe on March 25th –

And even a trip to Scotland to bring you the reality there of how people feel about a proposed new referendum!

It’s overall achieved hundreds of thousands of views, on my channel alone, coverage in mass media – and much more! I’m a completely crowdfunded journalist, and none of this would have been possible without your support. To be involved, click here!

Thanks again, and on we go!!

 

Ukraine targets Journalists (again), as the west just looks on (again)

Graham Phillips

In Ukraine, ‘radicals’ have published the latest issue of playing cards issued to Ukrainian soldiers with ‘kill targets’ on them. But don’t be fooled by ‘radicals’, be sure the Ukrainian government have given their full support to this, and the cards will be issued to Ukrainian soldiers, as previously (see my photos here of cards, after Ukrainian forces retreated from Lugansk airport, September 2014) –

Here they are: 
ukraine-death-cards

As well as myself, a UK freelance journalist, being on there, there are several other journalists, including prominent Russian journalist Dmitry Steshin.

So, where’s the outrage over this from the west? The headlines blasting Ukraine Targets Journalists…. where’s the outrage from western governments??

Nowhere at all. Remember, this is Ukraine and the west will blindly support Ukraine, because it’s a really convenient country to use to have a go at Russia.

Request for Assistance: Translate new Video Reportage about Journalism in Ukraine

I’d love to have this new reportage, about journalism in Ukraine pre and post Euromaidan, in as many languages as possible!

Can you help? Write in the subtitles, add in the comments section here.

Thanks again! Graham

Important New ‘Truth about’ Series… and you can be involved…

Graham Phillips

I’m always looking for ways to get the truth out to as wide an audience as possible. English and Russian cover a lot of the world, but not nearly all. Many people are still coming to the situation in Donbass not knowing much about it at all.

So, after attending a recent LSE propaganda seminar, I made this video, an introduction to Euromaidan, in English:

The format is effective, and can be put into a number of languages. Actually here, I asked your help in doing just that, and have already had several responses. The video is already up in Italian, with much more to come.

So, watch out for much more of that to come, and be sure I’ll be asking for your help, and input, along the way!

Very best, Graham

The Truth Speaker Hits 500,000 Hits

Graham Phillips

screenshot-970I’m pleased today to mark the Truth Speaker reaching 500,000 views, and I thank you for being a part of that!

I registered the site, the Truth Speaker, back in late 2014. I used to keep a blog, address in my own name, and I kept a blog called a ‘Brit in Ukraine‘ for some time, on which I wrote on a range of subjects. However, there was a time to move on, and I wanted to start a site not in my own name, a site which would have its own domain, and identity. I didn’t renew the old domain, and so the Truth Speaker began. The Truth Speaker was set up to – 

  • Bring interesting information to people all over the world
  • Fight propaganda
  • Keep you up to date with what I’m up to

The name the Truth Speaker reflects the simple principle of all my work, here, on YouTube, wherever, the truth. And as for those, actually I recall even from propaganda agency Bellingcat, who’ve said ‘rule of the internet, never trust anything with ‘truth’ in the title’ etc. We can all be a smartass, can’t we, and actually, over 400 articles, over 500,000 views and nothing on the Truth Speaker has ever been revealed to be untrue. So, I think this site started with truth in the name, and has earned that right.

As for where the hits have come from? Well, most of the hits overall are from Russia, and Ukraine, this reflecting the early day of this site, when I would do a lot of posts in Russian.

The Truth Speaker has been viewed in 203 countries in the world, at the other end of the spectrum, I clearly have some work to do to crack the Burundi, or Swaziland, not to mention Malawi markets!

Mid last-year, I moved my Russian posts to Live Journal, and so the Truth Speaker became mainly English, though I’m always keen to have other languages on here. We can see, from the previous 7 day period, most of the views now comes from the USA, and UK, with also room for Canada, Netherlands, Australia, and more –

By the way, the first post here was on January 27th, 2015. And while there have at times been weeks without a post, as I’ve simply not had time, over 400 posts mean more than a post every 2 days.  In recent times, I’ve been posting more here, as I was banned from Facebook, to the point of not being able to use Facebook. So, now, I post on here, and the idea is to keep this a free forum, with open comment and debate, and there have been many hundreds of comments on articles here, reflecting all sides ofthe spectrum. Also, incidentally, over half a dozen languages here, over half a dozen authors, this is a magazine site, not a blog. I’m always open to new contributions!

As for the most popular articles in English, 18+ My 20 Worst Photos from Donbass is the top. Next, it’s my Letter to Great Britain, and Reply from Great Britain, then one on the result of Ukrainain shelling of Donetsk, in early 2015.

Recently, the most popular article
has been the one about Bellingcat fraudster, Eliot Higgins.

I think that about covers it, huge thanks for being with me, and on to a million, we go on!
