    Abstract This study analyzes revelations from the trial and investigation in Ukraine concerning the mass killing that took place in Kyiv on 20 February 2014. This Maidan massacre of protesters and police led to the overthrow of the Yanukovych government and ultimately to the Russian annexation of Crimea, the civil war and Russian military interventions in Donbas, and the Ukraine-Russia and West-Russia conflicts which Russia escalated by illegally invading Ukraine in 2022. The absolute majority of wounded Maidan protesters, nearly 100 prosecution and defense witnesses, synchronized videos, and medical and ballistic examinations by government experts pointed unequivocally to the fact...
  • The Wagner 'Coup' Was Staged by Putin—and the West Fell for It | Opinion

    By now, everyone has heard about the narrowly avoided coup in Russia: Last Friday night, Yevgeniy Prigozhin, one of Putin's most trusted allies and the commander of the notorious Russian mercinary Wagner Group, marched on Moscow in an apparent coup d'etat, only to come to a swift agreement with Vladimir Putin and decamp for Belarus. While most commentators acknowledged that things didn't quite add up, the "expert" class happily concluded that at least it had weakened Putin in his war against Ukraine. None seemed to realize the obvious truth: The coup was staged, and completely faked false flag operation. Think...
  • Russia Isn’t Going to Run Out of Missiles

    07/01/2023 9:09:44 AM PDT · by AndyJackson · 104 replies
    .... Russia’s continued strike campaign in 2023 has made one thing quite clear: it is unrealistic to expect Russia to ever “run out” of missiles. Despite sanctions and export controls, it appears likely that Russia will be able to produce or otherwise acquire the long-range strike capacity necessary to inflict significant damage upon Ukraine’s people, economy, and military. Ukraine’s air defenses have performed remarkably well under challenging circumstances. Nevertheless, the Russian military has continued trying to identify gaps and seams to exploit to gain an advantage. There is no one-off fix for this problem. Sanctions and export controls can, at...

    This list only includes destroyed vehicles and equipment of which photo or videographic evidence is available. Therefore, the amount of equipment destroyed is significantly higher than recorded here. Small arms, ATGMs, MANPADS, loitering munitions, drones used as unmanned bait, civilian vehicles, trailers and derelict equipment are not included in this list. All possible effort has gone into avoiding duplicate entries and discerning the status of equipment between captured or abandoned. Many of the entries listed as 'abandoned' will likely end up captured or destroyed. Similarly, some of the captured equipment might be destroyed if it can't be recovered. When the...

    The real life succession drama of the Soros family was greeted with a few media puff pieces including at Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. The passage of the $25 billion Open Society network which topples governments, uproots societies and funds the leftist internationale to the next generation of the Soros clan garnered media press releases. But there’s plenty of succession drama in the family of the leftist billionaire.

    Kiev’s Great Offensive has been unimpressive, to say the least. Ukrainian Defense Minister Aleksey Reznikov has claimed that he has yet to deploy the bulk of its Western-trained forces he keeps in reserve for this much-touted counteroffensive against Russian forces. They have only been able to capture a few small villages quite some distance from the major Russian defensive lines. The notorious Neocon, Lindsey Graham, says the counteroffensive is moving slowly but steadily. Reznikov boasts, “When it [the major push] happens, you will all see it… Everyone will see everything.” These are supposed to be the main troop reserves, including...

  • Analysis-Where Are Russia's Top Generals? Rumours Swirl After Mercenary Mutiny (Gerasimov Missing)

    Reuters/US News ^ | 6/29/2023 | Andrew Osborn
    Russia's most senior generals have dropped out of public view after a failed mercenary mutiny aimed at toppling the top military brass, amid a drive by President Vladimir Putin to reassert his authority. Unconfirmed reports say that at least one person has been detained and is being questioned. Armed forces chief of staff General Valery Gerasimov has not appeared in public or on state TV since the aborted mutiny on Saturday when mercenary leader Yevgeny Prigozhin demanded Gerasimov be handed over. Nor has he been mentioned in a defence ministry press release since June 9. Gerasimov, 67, is the commander...
  • FTX managed to get $400 million in funding after Sam Bankman-Fried and an attorney invented a 'sham' agreement to explain close ties with Alameda, new CEO says

    FTX managed to raise $400 million in funding while showing false documents to investors, according to the crypto exchange's new CEO. John J Ray III made the accusation in a report about the company which was filed with the Delaware Bankruptcy Court on Monday. He said that Sam Bankman-Fried and one of the company's attorneys created "sham agreements" to make improper financial arrangements with Alameda, its sister hedge fund, look legitimate. This is a particularly interesting detail because the crypto exchange's implosion last November was provoked by the apparent commingling of funds between FTX and Alameda. -snip "In January 2021...

    During an appearance on Fox News with anchor Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, Peter Schweizer made a shocking revelation. Joe Biden was using a covert cell phone, according to Schweizer, author of “Secret Empires,” and Hunter Biden’s company had purchased it. “What is the line of communications between Hunter Biden and his business partners and Joe Biden when he’s Vice President of the United States?” Schweizer said. “It’s not the government phone. It’s not Joe Biden’s personal phone. We know from the laptop that Hunter Biden’s business paid for a private phone line that Joe Biden used while he was Vice...
  • Belarus' second-rate dictator Lukashenko is 'humiliating' Putin by bragging about how he saved Moscow from an armed Wagner revolt, experts say

    Wagner Group mercenaries appeared ready to clash with Russian soldiers defending Moscow from a sudden armed rebellion over the weekend. Hail-mary negotiations, mediated by Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, stopped the potential bloodshed in the capital. Lukashenko, a second-rate dictator and close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has since seized on the opportunity to boast about how he saved Moscow from the mutiny — "humiliating" the Russian leader for being unable to do this himself, war experts say. After Wagner fighters captured the southern city of Rostov-on-Don early Saturday, they continued north toward Moscow as the city prepared its defenses...

    The SS Biden is plummeting many leagues under the waves. The pressure on him is building as the truth leaks out. He is having a hard time remaining coherent. Biden: “It was inappropriate for Barack to spend a time with [Pres. Xi], but I — I spent a lot of time with him. I met alone with him, just he and I, and a simultaneous interpreter 68 times, 68 hours, 68 time — more than 68 hours.

    A top Russian general has 'vanished' amid claims he had advance knowledge of the weekend armed revolt which threatened Vladimir Putin's regime. One theory is that General Sergei 'Armageddon' Surovikin is under interrogation over a plot to oust defence minister Sergei Shoigu amid a hunt to purge the enemies within. Surovikin, 56, is the second-in-command of the Russian armed forces. He has known links to 'coup leader' Yevgeny Prigozhin, the Wagner mercenary army chief. US officials briefed on American intelligence said a top Russian general had advance knowledge of Prigozhin's plans to rebel against Shoigu and chief of the armed...

    President Joe Biden mistakenly said Russian President Vladimir Putin is "clearly" losing the war in Iraq while answering questions from reporters at the White House. Biden was likely talking about Russia's war in Ukraine, saying Putin has been unsuccessful in the conflicts at home and abroad. "It's hard to tell, but he is clearly losing the war in Iraq, he's losing the war at home, and he has become a bit of a pariah around the world. And it's not just NATO. It's not just the European Union. It's Japan. It's, you know, 40 nations," Biden said. Biden was taking...
