The immediate characterization of Russia’s intervention in Eastern Ukraine as “unprovoked” by Western leaders, echoed by all Western media and repeated without fail at every mention of the invasion, was the “foundational lie” in the war against Russia over Ukraine. The truth was opposite, with Russia forced finally to intervene when the provocation became irresistible.… Continue reading A History of Provocations
Above – the BBC’s James Waterhouse reports from Balakliya: “It’s hard to describe this as anything other than.. random. This is a patch of land, in the middle of Balakliya, it’s not a place – unlike other areas – that was once contested, where there was heavy fighting.” “- but what these minesweepers are looking… Continue reading Undermining Ukraine
What’s in the Pipeline Now?
I wrote this article for possible publication in Pearls and Irritations on March 6th, so publish it for the record, and for the relevant links. As the film “Navalny” is today awarded at the Oscars, it seems relevant to include him here, used as part of the US weaponry against the German-Russian pipeline. It’s interesting… Continue reading What’s in the Pipeline Now?
Breaking Fault-lines and Pipelines
A month has passed since I wrote this article, intended for publication in P&I. In the light of recent developments these initial observations are only made more relevant; not only has the NYT’s remark that the explosion was a “mystery” been shown to a deception, but the situation for people in Syria affected by the… Continue reading Breaking Fault-lines and Pipelines

Their cover story was that the danger of… Continue reading An Act of War – NATO, Norway and the BBC.

Both were close to the doors to the senate chamber and filmed the shooting of Ashli Babbitt by a concealed security official. As the media reporting predictably focused on… Continue reading The Bullet that Broke the Nation.
Rebirth of Mariupol Pt 2
The views of residents of Mariupol and Donetsk, independent and non-Western media, recording Ukraine’s war crimes.
The Death and Rebirth of Mariupol
A few days before Christmas the ‘city of Mary’, Mariupol, was suddenly featured in Western news reports. The Mariupol Drama Theatre, notoriously blown up by the Azov battalion in early March in a false flag operation that coincided with Kiev’s demands for a No Fly Zone, was being demolished, it said. Russia was apparently doing… Continue reading The Death and Rebirth of Mariupol
Amongst the many false narratives circulating around the “liberation” of Kherson and its rather short-lived re-occupation by Kiev’s men, the extreme Nationalist allegiances of these men was carefully concealed. As the short clip below reveals however, this identity was quite proudly proclaimed after Mr Zelensky came to visit the city. This was not long ago,… Continue reading Imperial Skullduggery
Whose Dirty Bombs?
Looking at the UK’s hand in setting the “dirty bomb” against Russia; signs from the BBC in Chernobyl.
