Our ‘Enemies’ in Ukraine Speak


Eric Zuesse 
RINF Alternative News

America’s ‘news’ media do not let the victims of Ukraine’s civil war — the people who are dying and being driven out from the southeastern regions of that country by the new Ukrainian Government — speak, and tell their story. Scenes will therefore be posted below from an admittedly overlong amateur video from southeastern Ukraine, in which they have been allowed to tell their story. This is being done here since U.S. ‘news’ media apparently don’t consider it something that you would want to know, and since you should be allowed to judge for yourself whether it is or not, and to judge why it’s not being reported on the ‘news’ sources that our ‘democracy’ offers to ‘inform’ America’s public about public affairs. It is also being done because these still photos from the documentary summarize this over-long documentary’s important narrative. You are welcomed to click onto the link above to see the entire 82-minute documentary.

First, there will here be an introductory paragraph summary of the relevant background (not discussed in the documentary), if you want to know that: In February 2014, our State Department and CIA used ‘false flag,’ or engineered-so-as-to-be-misinterpreted, violence by our country’s paid Ukrainian agents, in order to exploit the ‘Maidan’ demonstrations in Kiev, the desire of Ukrainians for a less-corrupt government than existed in Ukraine, and than has existed in Ukraine ever since the fall of communism there. Our Government, the Obama Administration, paid masked gunmen there to dress as if they were from the State Security Force of the corrupt Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and to shoot at and murder not just policemen but anti-Yanukovych or ‘democracy’ demonstrators. (However, Yanukovych had, in fact, himself been democratically elected in 2010, and still was the democratically elected President.) (NOTE: The complete key phone-transcript whose audio is briefly heard excerpted there is printed here.) And our gunmen also threatened some members of the Ukrainian Parliament at gunpoint, and engineered their approval of an emergency replacement of Yanukovych’s government by one that was appointed by Obama’s agent, Victoria Nuland, and that was headed by Nuland’s friend “Yats,” Arseniy Yatsenyuk. This new government was filled with people who stated their desire to exterminate the people in Ukraine’s southeast, the people who had voted overwhelmingly for Yanukovych — to just get rid of them. Doing that would make Obama’s regime in Ukraine become permanent. Then, Ukraine held a ‘democratic’ election in which voters everywhere but in the southeast voted, and essentially the same coup-installed people remained in power. The billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko was elected as the President of ‘Ukraine’; and Victoria Nuland’s chosen leader, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, continued on as the new country’s Prime Minister. Yatsenyuk fired the previous Defense Minister and replaced him with Mikhail Koval, who on June 11th announced a program of ethnic cleansing in the southeast. This was actually a direct extension from the program that had already started with the extermination on May 2nd of hundreds of supporters of the previous government, who were trapped inside the Trade Unions Building in Odessa and burned alive there. This massacre was masterminded by people who were installed by the Obama Administration. That massacre started Ukraine’s civil war, by demonstrating to people throughout the southeast, that the newly Obama-installed Ukrainian Government wanted to kill them. It was now official policy throughout the southeastern portion of Ukraine, to kill the Obama-installed regime’s opponents. All of the residents there were being officially labelled by the Obama government as ‘terrorists,’ and their elimination was declared to be a patriotic necessity for Ukraine. However, this amateur documentary from Ukraine’s southeast — the video from which the scenes below are taken — presents the resulting civil war not from the Obama Government’s side, but from their regime’s victims’ side, which is hardly heard at all in the West.

Since this amateur documentary presents the unvarnished reality of an actual ethnic cleansing campaign in progress, corpses and parts of corpses are necessarily shown, and also bombed buildings are shown. There also are curse-words that are spoken by the victims. Censoring these things out would be a violation of the most basic requirements of honest journalism, and would be to cover-up the reality of an ethnic-cleansing campaign, merely because this reality is ugly — that would be a shameful thing to do, a fundamental violation of the journalistic standards of any democracy, and will not be done here, though it is routinely done by our ‘journalists.’

Whatever it is, is mass-theft, combined with mass-murder, combined with a super-scandalous cover-up by all but a half-dozen ‘news’ media in the West (each of which has only a small audience), so that even almost all ‘alternative news’ sites are part of the cover-up. But this site, fortunately, isn’t. It’s one of the few that are honest.

In fact, international aristocrats are raping our entire planet with impunity (such as by owning ‘news’ media and politicians), and are ‘trophy hunting’ and otherwise slaughtering not only rare species of animals, but also the human residents of southeastern Ukraine. To ‘bag’ a human or an expensive animal of any species is especially status-confirming to them. Their impunity is the mark of their ‘superiority’: Only they can commit crimes with impunity; so, the bigger the crime, the bigger the thrill it is for them.

    War crimes of Ukrainian executioners. Chronicle of a Genocide

  • Taste McGovern

    this is an email from a colleague in Ukraine, the last email i got she was really worried her husband was going to be called up to fight:

    Our country was always divided into 2 parts – western ukrainians, which always were under Poland and Austria-Hungary (Europe) and eastern part – Russia. We have several key historical moments which every part interprets differently. Maidan in Kiev used these historical moments from the side of western ukrainian. I should say that very good psyhologists worked on slogans and proclamations. They shouted that they are real Europeans and Eastern people are “cattles” and slaves of Russia.

    Eastern part tolerated 3 months and then asked for country federalization, that they don’t want to live with western part in one country. Also all the heavy industry is placed in eastern part and western part is agrarian (and it is not also a secret, that most people from western part work in Europe as babysitters, nurses, builders). They said that they don’t want to fill budget, while western citizens fill European budget and abuse eastern part at the same time.

    Federalization was not allowed to them and they decided to separate into republics (with a wish to connect to Russia like Crimea). They became separatists and terrorists. The whole 6 million people region became terrorists, including children! And now they are bombed by Ukrainian army and all facts are twisted in that way that Russia attacks Ukraine.

    In the global aspects I understand that Ukraine is now like chess desk between USA and Russia, and this civil war on the border of Russia is very profitable for USA. Maidan was prepared for years and it was very easy to understand the contour of events after that. They got what they wanted – war and destabilization.

    Russia also traces its interests but I understand that the main Putin’s aim doesn’t allow Ukraine to be ally of NATO.

    Ukrainian government and news lie for every event and let people believe that we are in war with Russia, because it is a very good reason to say why we are in so deep crisis. (#blamePutin) Every step of our government is controlled by USA, every news program every day told us that our president talked to USA headers about the situation. And they don’t want to agree with Russia about gas etc. We are waiting for cold winter without gas and think how we will survive. And this is reality!

    But the most awful thing is people around me, who supported and believed Maidan. They are in so “ukrainian patriotic wave” after maidan that they wish all the Eastern region (Donetsk and Lugansk) to be killed. They dreamt that after signing the EU association agreement Europe will give us money and we will become rich and happy, but now Russia and eastern part are guilty that we are in so deep crisis.

    Also, as said in the comment you sent me, these people are very agressive to those who doesn’t support war and all this hell around, and call them “separatists”.

    And while Europe with USA will close their eyes on the things which are happened in Donbass region and support Ukrainian government, ukrainian army will kill peaceful people and children by heavy weapon and won’t stop while destroying all the region.

    It is a very strange antiterroristic operation to bomb cities with people and then shout for the whole world that Putin is guilty.

    We can’t close all relations with Russia, we have a lot of relatives their ( me too), they are very close to us that’s why almost all refugees are escaped to Russia, not Ukriane. They don’t support current government which came to power on blood and requires more and more blood and death. They are called the “party of war”.

    I wrote a lot, but it is not all I wanted to tell you. It’s my country and I am very concerned about our future. I don’t want war in my country and I don’t want to be an enemy of Russia, we have a lot of common roots.

    It’s very difficult to find and understand the truth now in this information war and assess the situation without emotions, but I believe that my opinion is correct and time will put everything on its places, but I am tired of waiting for some good news (((.

    • cettel

      What puzzles and disturbs me is that you had read this news-article, and then you posted that lengthy “email from a colleague in Ukraine,” and yet your response to all this is devoid of any outrage or contempt against the Ukrainian Government, or against Barack Obama for his having imposed it upon the people of Ukraine. I mean: this is nazism; it’s racist fascism, and the “racism” here is against specifically ethnic Russians. You’re not made angry at this slaughter of innocents who happen to be of that ethnicity. You’re not appalled against Obama, Yatsenyuk, Poroshenko, and all the rest of the international nazi gang that is slaughtering and robbing the people of Ukraine’s southeast. Are you a psychopath? Would you please explain the total lack of affect in your posted comment, that came at the end of an article that documented that the Ukrainian Government and Barack Obama are profoundly evil? It’s not something that makes sense to me, as a person who has a conscience.

      • Taste McGovern

        cettel – i cannot put into words what is happening to the peaceful East Ukranian people, that is why i posted the email, it shows real opinion of what is happening and backs it up what i thought was happening, so, instead of just repeating what is so obvious, to me, i thought i’d let evidence do the speaking… I am surprised that someone who knows what i am talking about is having a go at me!? To clarify, my friend, I do have a conscience and i am sick, so sick, of what is happening. But the buck doesnt stop at Obama, etc., oh no, it’s goes much deeper than that.

        • dale ruff

          Many of us in the US are sickened by our government’s creation of and support for a fascist regime in Ukraine.
          Thanks to the internet, we are no longer prisoners of US/Western propaganda.

          Thank you for our heartfelt report on what is happening, and pay no attention to cettel, who does not hear you because he wants more emotionalism. I feel your deep emotion.

          • Taste McGovern

            thank you mi amigo :-)

            In Italy we are orrified for what USA is nowadays.

          • hoodlum11

            many americans feel the same about our government, yet feel helpless in stopping the meanness and cruelty. We have elections, but issues pertaining to reality are never brought forward, those able to run for public office are only those attached to those doing harm. Good people cannot be elected to public office, with few exceptions, it’s only those supported by those with huge financial power and providing the pain to others. Americans are indoctrinated by propaganda called “the news”, which is owned and operated by those with the money and power, responsible for the killing and murder. I’m ready to leave, yet lack the finances or even a place i feel i could survive or feel safe.

      • RMM

        Hey, Cettel!
        What greater expression of outrage than exposing this horror? The issue is, what are you going to do about this – yourself, in person, now that you are outraged? And the rest of us, as well. by spreading informing the info, so no one can say they didn’t know.

    • Andrew Pate

      Great Email Mate. Touched my heart and agree with everything she says and hope she is able to stay safe in the meantime with such an aggressive lot. Lets hope the Dombass Army can Eliminate these Bastards back to where they came from.

      • Taste McGovern

        cheers mate, good to get some ‘real’ info out there, it would be good to reach out to more people and get real info from real people, in other parts of Ukraine, but also other parts of the world, e.g. irag, syria, etc. However, i would rather no one was ‘eliminated’, we are all the same, essentially, just different levels and types of brainwashing, we just all need to see that and realise.

        • Andrew Pate

          I have just seen a utube video worth looking at unfortunately it takes 90 minutes. But also shows what your friend is writing about and quite graphic and would be good to spread as much as possible. Google ” Ukraine Crisis: Donbass. Chronicle of Genocide. Banned on TV ” it has English Translation.

          • Taste McGovern

            yeah, i watched that a week or so ago, as well as the mindless horror, what struck me was also the insanity that prevails which compels, or allows humans to shell other humans

          • Andrew Pate

            I have seen on CNN in Mariupol the locals are digging in with the Ukrainians Junta as they are expecting and attack from freedom Fighters. I have only seen the one spot so wonder if it is just a PR stunt as they wave there blue and yellow flags. From what info I do not think they will attack just yet as they want to close off other areas first but the Freedom Fighters army has made immense gains these last couple of weeks so I hope they can keep the momentum going.

          • Taste McGovern

            In my humble opinion, ditch the tv, or at least, stop consuming mainstream news (lies).

          • Andrew Pate

            Haha agree I like to check the BS they put across. I do like RT thou and of course the internet.

          • Taste McGovern

            it’s astonishing what msm try to put across as truth/fact sometimes

          • Andrew Pate

            I have never believed them since 911 that really opened my eyes and yet we still have people who accept it was 19 Arabs. Even my stupid wife but what do you expect when they saw it on TV.

            9/11 woke a lot of people up i think

    • inspiredbyloveforhumanity

      thank you for posting this heartfelt letter.

  • Grindaizer

    The United States and the EU have provoked a crisis in Ukraine and now there is a civil war and neo-Nazis phosphorus bombs kill thousands of innocent civilians, which everyone in Europe does not care. Can not be in the south-east of Ukraine to be 5 million “terrorists”! United States persuaded the EU to begin the destruction of the Russian economy through economic sanctions. Russian national security in order to start closing its domestic market. Who benefits? Why human life is so much cheaper in Ukraine in European life downed a Boeing? Why Kiev hide records of negotiations with Boeing controllers? It does not matter that the chaos in the Ukraine, where there are chemical plants and nuclear power plants can come to the house every European?

    • daisygarden

      United States has NOT “persuaded EU to begin the destruction of Russian economy….”. EU, as -Britain + Brussels + France+ Germany are architects
      of the scheme ,and NOT only for the”destruction of Russian economy,through sanctions”, but ALL THIS MASS in Ukraine.

    UK residents that rely on the MSM for their news, have no idea what is going on in Ukraine. However those that use the alternative media for their news are well aware of our Rothschild Zionist Prime Minister David Cameron’s complicity in the on-going horror, and that of the POTUS. There is not much we can do about Obama, but rest assured David Cameron will be booted out of office in May 2015, for his complicity re: Ukraine, the middle east, and his crimes against the British people. People of the South east regions should be strong, the Wests criminals are slowly becoming more and more exposed and Putin will help you. But he has to do it whilst avoiding nuclear war, no easy task bearing in mind the insanity he is pitted against.

    The Ukrainian army is acting like the Israelis against the Palestinians. Where did that come from? Oh, I forgot – it’s the U.S. connection.

    “One nation, one race; Moskals to the knives, Father Bandera come and clean up the dirt…”
    All genocides, everywhere, begin with the same incantations. Unfortunately, people never seem to learn from others’ experience. Any Rwandan (I’m one) would have told you that genocide was clearly in preparation. But we also know that “no path ever warns the traveller” (of danger ahead), so perhaps each person and each nation have to make their own experience? Sad…
    We now see – in hindsight – that while calls to genocide were clear during those nazi-fascist marches in 2012 and earlier, the process began much earlier, with those “pre-independence associations” that Soros is proud of. The “canonisation” of Bandera by Yushchenko was simply a stepping up of what had been in preparation for years. The rest was mere logical and “natural” unfolding.
    And Victoria Nuland’s insinuating voice is also a familiar feature: deny the genocide and your role in it, deny your complicity by labeling it “funding a democratic process”. Who is to hold you accountable, anyway? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giYwMVSlAGs)
    Unless the American people themselves come out of their torpor – but that’d take a miracle.

  • The OGS

    I’ve been HOWLING about this for a year now…
    Educating the legions of sheeple who believe the nonsense that Washington and their puppets in Kiev are claiming. (But it has been a tough go, and wearying.)
    Yes, these poor folks don’t understand that the objective is to get them to flee, to leave Ukraine.
    But they are right p!ssed off now, and fighting tooth-and-nail for their land, their homes…
    Whereas Washington is fighting for Monsanto, and for money!
    So whose hearts do you think are going to be more completely in it?
    That’s why the Novorossiyans have been kickin’ their butts lately, heheh…
    And honestly, Mr. Putin has demonstrated remarkable patience.
    It must be disheartening for him to hear all the vitriol flowing out of Washington, London and everywhere else, about ‘Russian aggression’ and ‘evil Putin’ etc.
    He knows the American warmongers will not allow peace to break out…
