Thursday 29th of February 2024

before and after napoleon......

There are two Volodymyr Zelenskys: the one we have known since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, who has since been celebrated every day in the Western media as a hero with a spotless white (or green) vest; the other, who was less well-known prior to this significant escalation of the war, which, according to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, began in 2014. (Here are details on the actual start of this war in 2014).

After all, prominent British, German and other European media already referred to the “Panama” or ”Pandora Papers” to describe the “former” Zelensky, who was not yet the illustrious governor of the American empire, as being highly corrupt. His hero status may abruptly end though, if and when Washington decides that he is no longer useful (e.g., when war results do not meet expectations despite massive NATO support and involvement) and the media start digging for dirt on him again. Wanna bet?

What the same media bubble fails to mention, however, is that Zelensky was elected to office with a large majority of the votes, with massive financial support from the richest Ukrainian oligarch at the time (who had stolen huge sums of money and was therefore banned from entering the United States) and with the promise of bringing peace to the Donbas. It may surprise you—but he actually tried.

 Zelensky’s original peace mission

His plan probably also had to do with the fact that he, the president of Jewish faith and Russian mother tongue, himself belonged to the minority. He learned fluent Ukrainian only late, when it became politically unavoidable for him.

Long before he became president, he had campaigned as a comedian against discrimination of the Russian-speaking minority. For example, in a 2014 television appearance, he declared, “In the east and in Crimea, people want to speak Russian. Leave them alone, just leave them alone. Give them the right to speak Russian. Language should never divide our country….We have the same skin color, the same blood, regardless of language.” When he took the highest office in the country, he tried to implement his election promise.

However, this was a Herculean task in view of the very strong ultra-nationalist forces and the “fascists who overran the country”” (according to the Jerusalem Post) who opposed his peace mission. The influence of these circles was (and is) so great that, from schoolchildren to senior citizens, all western Ukrainians were processed to hate Ukrainian citizens of Russian descent and to believe that it is good to slaughter them. Even in schools, students were goaded by their teachers to use slogans like these against Russian-speaking Ukrainians: “Hang the Muscovites,” “Put the Russians on the pyre,” and “Drink the blood of Russian babies!”

 Peaceful co-existence instead of final victory

Zelensky could only have achieved peaceful co-existence between western and eastern Ukraine if he had been permitted to negotiate as he originally desired with Russia and with representatives of the largely Russian-speaking Donbas. He also needed the backing of his supporters in Washington because the radicals leading the fighting in eastern Ukraine threatened him and said they would only accept a “final victory” over the Donbas.

But they did not want him to negotiate with Russia—and thus strengthened the position of the extremists. The western Ukrainian ultra-nationalists and Banderists even told Zelensky that he would sign his own death warrant if he talked to Putin, so the only result in the end was war. We currently experience that in Ukraine, and there is no end in sight.

 In addition to the threat to his life, Zelensky faced direct obstacles to his peace mandate on several fronts

Zelensky was met by irate members of the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion who protested under the banner “No to surrender” when he traveled to the Donbas in October 2019 to campaign in Russian-speaking rebel-held areas. Zelensky argued with a soldier from the Azov Battalion about the president’s demand for a troop withdrawal in a videotaped exchange. “I am the president of this country. I am 41 years old. I am not a loser. I came to you and told you: withdraw your weapons,” Zelensky pleaded.

Despite his personal appearance on the ground, Zelensky encountered even further resistance: The same far-right forces set up an armed checkpoint to prevent or at least delay a withdrawal of the Ukrainian military. Thousands of far-right and nationalist demonstrators, cheered by the liberal intelligentsia and carrying flares, also marched in Kyiv.

 Suffering in Donbas acknowledged by Zelensky, censored by Western media

Katharine Quinn-Judge of the International Crisis Group explained that Zelensky’s ex-press secretary, Yulia Mendel, acknowledged the suffering in the Donbas because “Zelensky had promised during the election campaign to treat the residents of the Russian-backed enclaves as full Ukrainians”—a misstep for the U.S.-favored far-right nationalists, who oppose equal rights for all Ukrainians.

Yet journalists in European countries are intimidated and prevented from reporting on Ukrainian terror and suffering in the Donbass by being defamed, losing their jobs, and even threatened with imprisonment. This explains why Europeans are generally unaware of the years of violence that the Ukrainian military and neo-fascist groups have inflicted on the population in the Donbas.

Moreover, the political and media elites in the West do not care that dissent and freedom of the press are suppressed in Ukraine. The few independent journalists who dare to report on the situation in the Donbas, where the Russian-speaking majority has been targeted by Ukrainian forces since 2014, bother them all the more.

After German journalist Patrik Baab dared to report from the Donbas, German universities and media accused him of ”legitimizing Putin’s war of aggression with his mere presence.” As a result, he lost his job as a lecturer at the University for Media, Communication and Economics in Berlin.

The French journalist and filmmaker Anne-Laure Bonnel had made two documentaries showing the situation of the Russian-born population in the regions attacked by Kyiv. As a result, she lost her job in Europe. Here you can see how she had to deal with biased editors in France while working in the Donbas. By the way, both Patrik Raab and Anne-Laure Bonnel had condemned the Russian invasion.

“I saw the war, yet we cannot speak the truth,” says Sonja van den Ende, a Dutch investigative journalist who has covered the Donbass, adding, “We’re being censored in Europe.”

Italian photojournalist Giorgio Bianchi became the target of a defamation campaign waged by major Italian newspapers over his reporting from Ukraine. He was accused of being a pro-Russian propaganda stooge.

 

The media conjured up all sorts of wild suspicions against him, to which he responded: “All of these hypotheses are absolutely false and lack any support of evidence. It is a clumsy attempt to muzzle whoever disapproves of crazy policies by a government that is making the Italian people pay the cost of arbitrarily imposed sanctions against Russia.”

Bianchi noted that most intellectuals and journalists are increasingly reluctant to come out and voice their concerns about the escalation of the conflict for fear of jeopardizing their reputations or suffering a career assassination because of the witch-hunt atmosphere.

Alina Lipp moved to Ukraine in 2021—a year before Russia invaded—and traveled to Donetsk to spend some time there and find out for herself what was actually happening in the Donbas. The German freelance journalist was little known at the time.

Although Berlin loudly declared that it was protecting democracy and thus freedom of expression in Ukraine (nota bene: with heavy weapons, including tanks rolling against Russia again!), Germany wanted to punish her for this with three years in prison. Lipp saw her bank account frozen losing 1,600 euros without explanation. The German authorities also said that she would not be allowed to defend herself in court, as this could hinder the investigation.

Here is one of Alina Lipp’s uncensored documentaries about her stay in Donbas. Watch and form your own opinion!

 Nationalists and U.S. government prevented agreement

Although Zelensky was reluctant to accept the Minsk agreements on resolving the minority issue, he continued talks on their implementation. The radical nationalists expressed their violent opposition at every opportunity—including in August 2021, when at least eight police officers were injured during armed protests in front of the presidential office. Their threats against Zelensky undoubtedly thwarted a peace agreement that could have prevented the Russian invasion.

Just two weeks before Russian troops invaded Ukraine, The New York Times noted that Zelensky “would take extreme political risks to even consider a peace agreement with Russia” because his government could be “shaken and possibly overthrown” by far-right groups if he agreed to “a peace deal that they believe gives too much to Moscow.”

Yurii Hudymenko, leader of the far-right Democratic Ax Party, even threatened Zelenskyj with a coup d’état: “If anybody from the Ukrainian government tries to sign such a document, a million people will take to the streets and that government will cease being the government.” He also emphasized that “they (the Zelenskyj government, F.A.) fear the Ukrainian people more than they fear the Russian army.”

An example that the far-right is serious about its hostility toward Russian-speaking Ukrainians is the recent announcement by a Ukrainian soldier in the east of the country that he and his comrades will murder all Russian-born eastern Ukrainians in the Donbass as soon as the opportunity presents itself.

Transatlantic politicians and the mainstream media portrayed the Maidan “revolution” as the work of liberal, pro-Western protesters motivated by righteous resentments against an authoritarian, corrupt president.

The fact that the insurrection served primarily to empower literal neo-Nazis while enacting only the goals of the Western powers that opportunistically provided their support was conveniently ignored. Instead, it was a marriage of convenience between opponents of the government, which at best represented one-half of a polarized country, and the far right.

Tryzub, one of the groups that came together to form the influential nationalist Right Sector, had urged the Ukrainian opposition to shift “from a peaceful demonstration to a street-revolutionary plane” in March 2013. In the event that the pro-Russian forces came to power, their leader Dmytro Yarosh had already called on his compatriots in 2009 to “take up an armed struggle against the regime of internal occupation and the Moscow empire.” Yanukovych was hated by nationalists as part of the “pro-Russian forces.” However, the Brookings Institution characterized Yanukovych’s foreign policy as “more nuanced” than his pro-Russian leanings had initially suggested.

Looking outside of Kyiv, a thorough examination of more than 3,000 Maidan demonstrations revealed that the far-right Svoboda party, whose leader once alleged that a “Muscovite-Jewish mafia” controlled Ukraine, and which includes a politician who admires Joseph Goebbels, was the most active force behind the demonstrations. They were also more likely than any other group, with the exception of Right Sector, a collection of far-right activists with ties to collaborators with the Nazis who committed mass murder, to engage in violent acts.

For good reason, the Israeli embassy advised Jews to stay in their homes while a prominent rabbi urged them to leave the city and even the country.

A massacre perpetrated by snipers during the Maidan coup, which was strongly condemned, was a false-flag operation attributed by Western politicians and media to the Yanukovych government to lend some moral credibility to its overthrow.

Ivan Katchanovski, a Ukrainian professor at the School of Political Studies & Conflict Studies and Human Rights Program at the University of Ottawa, who conducted research on the matter, refuted this claim: “All the evidence shows that this massacre was not perpetrated by government snipers or led by the police…. No one has been convicted of this mass murder…. They killed and wounded police officers and Maidan demonstrators in order to falsely blame government forces….”

Indeed, the post-Yanukovych interim government, in which leading far-right figures took prominent positions, swiftly passed a law giving Maidan participants immunity for any violence.

Adds Katchanovski: “He (President Yanukovych) was blamed for the massacre and the West, including the United States, no longer recognized him as president of Ukraine. In his memoirs, Biden writes that immediately after the massacre he called Yanukovych and told him that he had to leave Ukraine.”

Katchanovski points out that there is evidence of involvement of nationalists and neo-Nazis in the massacre.

 The term “Nazi Ukraine” is not a creation of Vladimir Putin

Not surprisingly, the French-Israeli lawyer and anti-Semitism activist Arno Klarsfeld strongly opposes Ukraine’s accession to the European Union:

“Thirty years ago, Stepan Bandera, who called for the murder of Jews, was considered in Ukraine as a murderer, while today he is erected as a national hero,” the lawyer said about the Russophobic Ukrainian Nazi. “The country has issued postage stamps [with] his image, erected statues and established holidays in his honor. The largest avenue in Kiev, five kilometers long and leading to the site of Babi Yar, bears his name. As for the extension of this avenue, it was named after Roman-Taras Yosypovych Shukhevych, who was even worse than Bandera.”

Shukhevych, a Nazi and mass murderer of Jews and Poles, has become another outstanding national hero in today’s Ukraine.

While numerous monuments to Nazi criminals are being erected, at the same time monuments honoring greats of world literature, such as Leo Tolstoy and Alexander Pushkin, are being torn down along with monuments honoring Russian revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin. The European Union and the United States have provided most of the funding for this demolition and renaming frenzy.

Eighty years ago, in 1943, soldiers of General Nikolai Vatutin’s Red Army units liberated Kyiv from Nazi rule. Shortly after the liberation of Kyiv, he was ambushed and wounded by the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) led by Stepan Bandera.

The general was rightly celebrated as a hero, and the people of Kyiv regularly decorated his monument with flowers. The Vatutin monument was recently demolished, in the year of the 80th anniversary of the liberation of Kyiv, and the Kyiv authorities desecrated his grave.

The Azov Battalion, the Ukrainian military unit whose emblem is the “Wolfsangel,” a Nazi symbol used in particular by units of Nazi Germany’s SS, was given the honor of renaming the street named after Ukrainian Marshal Malinovsky, one of the leaders of the Red Army in the war against Nazism, to “Street of Heroes of Azov Regiment.” 

President Poroshenko’s interior minister incorporated the Azov Regiment into Ukraine’s National Guard. From 2014 Ukraine became a Mecca for far-right extremists around the world, who came to learn and get training from Azov — including, ironically, Russian white supremacists who were hounded from their country by Putin.

Azov had been identified by the U.S. Congress as a terrorist and neo-Nazi organization.

Around the time the General Vatutin monument in Kyiv was destroyed, the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ Tenth Mountain Infantry Brigade received the nickname Edelweiss.

The name had been used by the First Mountain Infantry Division of the German Wehrmacht during World War II. This division was responsible for the deportation of Jews, the execution of prisoners of war and the use of punitive measures against partisans in Yugoslavia, Italy, Czechoslovakia and Greece. Many members of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, including the current commander-in-chief, openly wear “Totenkopf” insignia, which are almost identical to the emblems of the SS “Totenkopf” division and other Nazi units.

Since the Euromaidan coup in 2014, more than 1,000 settlements and more than 50,000 streets have been renamed in Ukraine, almost all for political reasons. It was a massive neo-Nazi and de-Russification campaign.

On May 10, 1933, students across Germany burned more than 25,000 “un-German” books. Among them were the works of Jewish authors such as Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud, leftist and liberal authors, and blacklisted American authors such as Ernest Hemingway and Helen Keller. More than 100,000 people took to the streets in New York and many other places in the United States to protest this fascist act.

Nobody in the West objected when millions of “un-Ukrainian,” i.e. Russian-language books, were recently banned throughout Ukraine and books for the Russian-speaking minority were publicly burned.Because the media either failed to cover this fascist act and the true nature of the banderist Ukraine, or because they chose to ignore it this time, Americans and Europeans were unaware of the striking similarity between the disappearance of countless books in Nazi Germany and in contemporary Ukraine.

And why, if they could, wouldn’t those who purge millions of books from Ukraine also exterminate their writers and readers, whom they despise so much, in large numbers like in Nazi Germany?

“One language, one Ukraine. Long live Ukraine. Long live the nation. Ukraine above all. Bandera, Shukhevych are heroes of Ukraine. Out with Judaism. Death to the enemies. Death to Moskal (ethnic slur for Russian speakers). Impale the (Ukrainian) Russians with knives.”

Since 2014, nationalist mobs have been shouting the above slogans in the streets, stadiums and elsewhere in western Ukraine, from Kiev to Odessa. Odessa already had a sad reputation for one of the worst massacres in Ukraine in 1941 and 1942, when more than 100,000 Jews were burned or shot. In 2014, Odessa saw another massacre, this time of Russian-speaking citizens, again perpetrated by fascists. This documentary depicts the new crime.

The ultra-nationalists that have become a mighty force after the overthrow in 2014 are not only targeting Russian speakers but also other minorities, a fact that seems to be purposefully ignored or downplayed in the West. Peter Szijjarto, the foreign minister of Hungary, recently lamented on his Facebook page that the Kiev regime had severely restricted the minority rights—including language rights—of the more than 150,000 ethnic Hungarian Ukrainians. For instance, schoolchildren who speak Hungarian are no longer allowed to receive instruction in their native tongue.

Article 10 of the Constitution stipulates that Ukrainian is the official language of Ukraine. In addition, a new law came into force in Ukraine in January 2022 that mandates the use of Ukrainian in almost all areas of public life and de facto prohibits the use of Russian and other minority languages.

According to a nationwide survey in 2021, 22 percent of Ukrainians speak Russian as their native language. The percentage is identical to that of French speakers in Switzerland. Unlike Ukraine, however, not only German, the language of the majority, is an official language in Switzerland, but French and Italian (the language of an even smaller minority) are also official languages with equal rights. Official documents such as law books and passports are issued in these three languages, schools teach in these languages, and Swiss citizens can use their mother tongue without restriction.

Which raises the question: Why does Ukraine discriminate against its minorities, while other countries do not, as the example of Switzerland shows, and treat minorities equally? (Such queries to the Ukrainian government are not made by Western politicians or media.)

The Roma, another minority, have become the target of heinous hate crimes.

 It was a matter of political and physical survival

Zelensky clearly got the message. Instead of pursuing the peace program for which he was elected, he has instead forged alliances with the Ukrainian far right, which violently opposes the program. It was not until late January 2022, in the midst of final talks to salvage the Minsk Agreement, that Ukrainian security chief Oleksiy Danilov, appointed by Zelensky, declared instead that “fulfillment of the Minsk Agreement means the destruction of the country.”

At the last round of Minsk talks in February 2022, just two weeks before the Russian invasion, a “major obstacle,” as The Washington Post reported, was “Kyiv’s resistance to negotiations with the pro-Russian separatists.”

Only through this opportunistic closing of ranks with the ultra-nationalists who sought his life could Zelensky ensure his political and physical survival. The peace-seeking mediator turned into an obdurate hardliner and a Russophobic warmonger.

He had no other choice. To hold him solely responsible for this would be unfair. Washington is primarily responsible for letting him hang, based on its primary strategic goals—uncompromising weakening of Russia and, in its wake, Europe.

 American Fascism: A prior question to the AUKUS arrangements   By Judy Hemming

 

 

The criticisms of the AUKUS arrangements announced by the government are entirely warranted, as is the outrage that has accompanied them, but, strangely, they miss a point which should have preceded them. And that has to do with the political complexion of the United States itself; in brief, it faces the world as a troubled and corrupt actor, neither united as a nation, nor even as a state.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt is to the point. In 1938 he provided this warning:

“if American democracy ceases to move forward as a living force, seeking day and night by peaceful means to better the lot of our citizens, fascism will grow in strength in our land.” 

It has proved to be prescient as the emergence of Donald Trump, Ron De Santis, and the insurrection of January 6, 2021, have underlined. They represent undemocratic toxicity in the bowels of American politics; moreover, they are but the further development of longstanding authoritarian trends in US politics which the Western alliance in general, and Australia in particular, have chosen to ignore.

For the most part this is not considered a topic for polite conversation amongst the mainstream political media and academic communities. But it should be. For them, any notion of fascism is over-determined by sloppy comparisons with the fascisms of Italy and Nazi Germany. This results in a denial of what exists in plain sight.

What is more troubling is that the silence has been reinforced by the parroting and fervent embrace of the myth that we – Australia – are remarkably alike and therefore somehow related, almost family.

The proposition is that this is the outcome of a common language and historical development; more, that it has cascaded into congruent cultural values, national goals and even destiny.

Nothing could be further from reality. Worse unlike many myths which are relative harmless forms of consolation this one was always, and continues to be propagated for political, strategic, and commercial ends which ultimately are actual threats to Australian national security and identity.

An immediate question comes to mind is this: where are the ostensibly fearless, mainstream Australian intellectuals, journalists, political scientists who derive their status from being the independent critics and commentators essential to any regime claiming to be a functioning democracy. To continue, why is it that, in the face of evidence to the contrary, they seek only to immortalise the alliance?

And why do they go so far as to denigrate those who have committed themselves to the very professional obligations they themselves have abandoned?

Surely the growing body of evidence, analysis, and commentary since (say) 9/11 on the drift to a specifically American form of fascism is unavoidable. They are many, rigorous, and growing, and they do not rely on the advent of Donald Trump; rather, they approach the subject from many perspectives to reveal a consistent and chronic pathology.

Crucially, those producing these accounts, and from within the United States, are drawn from academia, the critical media, public intellectuals, and the traditional conservative wing of US political parties, including the Republican Party. All display an awareness of conditions in the US which, unaddressed, make the emergence of a distinctly American fascism almost inevitable.

While this is a tragedy for the US, it is surely unacceptable for the Australian government to surrender even more of its sovereignty to such a power.

Equally, assuming that the AUKUS arrangements are based on the advice being provided by the relevant government agencies and think tanks, the conclusion is that they ought, collectively, to be charged with dereliction of duty.

They have, for example, absented themselves from any consideration and understanding of the essential, or eternal elements of fascism – what Umberto Eco, in his seminal essay of the mid-1990s defined as Ur Fascism.

Then, too, in the post 9/11 politics of the US, Eco has been joined by those constantly mindful of the corruption of the American body politic: by way of an indicative list, Henry Giroux, Chris Hedges, and Naomi Wolf.

What they catalogue is a litany of fascist features which, inter alia, include: violence against dissent and those defined as the Other, the co-option of sympathetic religious authoritarian and extreme nationalist, anti-secularism, the politicisation of the judiciary, racism, machismo, militarism and militarisation, and measures against women’s choice.

And all of this while simultaneously exalting the US as the one and only possible hegemon in world politics.

Not even a shadow of this is cast on the AUKUS arrangements. The questions which flow from this absence indicate a national identity so close to the US that, like so many comparisons, is a curse.

nazi grylls......

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s security detail feared an attempted poisoning when Bear Grylls offered him a piece of chocolate during their interview, the TV presenter revealed on Monday during an interview with Good Morning Britain.

The former SAS trooper and wilderness survivalist was in Ukraine last year, filming a documentary about Zelensky for Channel 4. The incident happened in early December, when he met the president in Kiev.

“Normally when I’ve done this before with world leaders, the wild does half my job for me – it’s a great leveler. It’s a great ice-breaker – you’re out in the mountains,” Grylls said on the show. In Kiev, he used a different trick, taking out a piece of Cadbury’s chocolate.

“When I offered it to Zelensky, one of his guys stepped in and said he shouldn’t be eating it,” Grylls recalled. “I said, ‘Ok, I’ll go first, to show I’m not out to poison him’, and we all laughed. I gave some to the security guys, because everyone likes a little square of Dairy Milk, right?” 

Grylls had previously used food to break the ice with other politicians. In a 2015 episode of ‘Running Wild With Bear Grylls’ filmed in Alaska, he shared a piece of salmon with US President Barack Obama, who was using the show to promote his Arctic agenda.

His new documentary, ‘Bear Grylls Meets President Zelensky’, is intended to promote the Ukrainian president’s cause in the conflict against Russia. Grylls said Zelensky had the same sense of “destiny” as Winston Churchill, and that the goal of the documentary “is to get to know the real guy behind the podium, actually what he is like as a man.”

Born Edward Michael Grylls, the adventurer and businessman became famous for a hit TV show called ‘Man vs. Wild’, which ran between 2006 and 2011. In the 1990s, he served in the Special Air Service (SAS) until he damaged his spine on a parachute jump in Kenya. Though he was discharged as a trooper, he holds the honorary rank of lieutenant commander in the Royal Naval Reserve, and an honorary colonel in the Royal Marines Reserve.

The government in London has been one of the most outspoken champions of Kiev’s cause, waging information and economic warfare on behalf of Ukraine and urging the US and other NATO members to send Zelensky weapons and ammunition.

kyiv is preparing a provocation in the Sumy region aimed at accusing Russia of using toxic substances, the headquarters of the interdepartmental coordination of the Russian Federation reported.

« According to available data, confirmed by several independent sources, under the leadership of the Office of the President of Ukraine, a large-scale provocation is being prepared aimed at discrediting the Russian Federation on the international stage “said the coordination in a press release.

It is in the village of Akhtyrka in the Sumy region, according to the headquarters, by an alleged platoon of the first line of defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the line of combat contact with Russian troops that this action is being prepared .

It is planned to bring the bodies of dead Ukrainian soldiers from the morgues to these pseudo-positions to pass them off as victims of fires caused by “Russian” artillery munitions filled with “poisonous substances”.

The Kiev regime plans to spray the area with poisonous substance so that invited Western experts can document the “fact” of the Russian military's use of chemical weapons.

Ukrainian special services, according to the Humanitarian Headquarters, were instructed to prepare and post on social media fake radio intercepts of alleged talks by Russian servicemen about preparations for the use of “chemical weapons”.

The purpose of the action is to divert the attention of the international community from the numerous war crimes, published by the UN, committed by the Ukrainian military and nationalist militants.

Thus, the Kiev regime intends to launch a new media campaign in the West with the aim of discrediting Russia, in particular by initiating a meeting of the UN Security Council in order to bring the accusations against Moscow, added the staff. coordination.

to the last one....

Ukraine will reveal the extent of its “horrible” losses once its conflict with Russia is over, Vadim Pristaiko, Kiev’s ambassador to the UK, said in an interview released on Friday.

Asked by British tabloid the Daily Express to comment on casualties among Ukrainian military personnel and civilians, Pristaiko said “it has been our policy from the start not to discuss our losses.”

“When the war is over, we will acknowledge this. I think it will be a horrible number,” he added.

Pristaiko dismissed any possibility of talks between Moscow and Kiev – at least until Russia withdraws its troops from the territories Ukraine claims as its own. “So, we have to fight to the very last of them or, very unfortunately, the last of us as well,” the envoy said.

 

The ambassador also commented on the assault brigades that Ukraine says it has assembled for a much-anticipated spring offensive against Russia. “Whoever says there are 40,000 men in these brigades, I would like to point out that we have mobilized a million men,” Pristaiko stated.

Both sides of the Ukraine conflict rarely provide data on their losses. However, last autumn, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen put Kiev’s fatalities at 100,000, a claim that was disputed by Ukraine and later removed from the official’s website. In December, Mikhail Podoliak, a senior aide to Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, put the death toll among Kiev’s military at between 12,000 and 13,000 people.

Russia has not officially updated its losses since last September, when Moscow’s Ministry of Defense estimated that 5,937 service members had died.

Pristaiko’s comments come as Ukrainian and Western officials claim that Ukraine will launch a counteroffensive in the coming weeks. Commenting on statements about a potential Ukrainian push, Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov noted that the Russian military “thoroughly tracks all the relevant information” on the matter.

Zelensky and team stole at least $400 million of Western aid – Seymour Hersh


Corruption in Ukraine may be on par with what was seen in Afghanistan, the investigative journalist claimed

 

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky and his senior officials are skimming American taxpayer dollars by the hundreds of millions, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh claimed on Wednesday. The alleged grift even includes schemes involving trade with Russia itself.

Zelensky and his entourage embezzled at least $400 million from US funds meant for diesel procurement last year, Hersh claimed in a new article on Substack, citing a CIA estimate.

Kiev has allegedly been buying diesel fuel, which is essential for the war effort, from Russia itself – and in the process skimming large sums of US funds earmarked for diesel payments.

Reports had earlier surfaced about how oil products originating in Russia had made their way to Ukraine through Bulgaria and Latvia. The scheme involving the Baltic state, which was reported in detail by the Latvian television program Neka Personiga, may have violated the EU’s anti-Russian sanctions.

 

An expert cited by Hersh compared the level of corruption in Ukrainian procurement to what was seen in Afghanistan, when a US-backed government was in charge in Kabul. According to his sources, ministries in Kiev compete to set up front firms in order to export weapons and ammunition, with the relevant officials profiting from kickbacks. The US government, meanwhile, has stated that it has seen no evidence of Western-supplied weapons in Ukraine being diverted elsewhere.

Hersh cited an intelligence source who referred to the January meeting between Zelensky and CIA Director William Burns. The US official allegedly presented a list of 35 generals and ministers known to the CIA to be corrupt. Senior Ukrainian officials also complained that Zelensky “was taking a larger share of the skim money than was going to the generals,” the source explained, comparing the meeting to a scene from a 1950s mob movie.

Hersh contends that the Ukrainian leader’s response was to fire staff from the Cabinet of Ministers, regional administrations, and other parts of the Ukrainian government. Kiev claimed the move was part of its anti-corruption strategy. Defense Minister Aleksey Reznikov, who became mired in a scandal over purchases of overpriced food for troops, was widely expected to be sacked at the time, but he survived the purge.

Hersh’s sources blamed Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan for the ongoing crisis in the US government, which allegedly suffers from discord between the White House and intelligence community. The two top foreign policy officials have shown “strident ideology and lack of political skill” over the Ukraine conflict, according to the sources.
