Here are some more translated comments from Rav Berland about the war in Ukraine, from the last two weeks.

Again, the Rav tells these ‘stories’ to sweeten the harsh judgements in the world, and if you study them carefully, you can pick up a lot of clues about what is really going on, that is not being reported in the fake news.

I have a much longer ‘story’ I’m working on too, which I’ll try to put up in the next day or two, at least, a big chunk of it, as it really helped me to get a better emuna perspective on all the terrible things going on at the moment.

Enjoy!

====

Excerpt of a shiur given on Parshat Vayikra, 5782 (March, 2022)

(Someone in the audience says: Putin is the same gematria as ‘Nachman’, spelled without a ‘vav’.)

Yes, because only Rabbenu will subdue him.

Because now, Zelensky asked the Jews in Uman to pray for him in the Tzion. So there will be some miracle, because according to usual way of the world, he has no chance.

So, either Putin will regret [going to war], or maybe all the tanks will be burnt, because there are five million citizens in Kiev, so each one will burn a tank.

==

(Someone in the audience says: A million people already ran away.)

Yes, they stood on the 20 km road, and went around with loudspeakers, [saying] whoever has got an Israeli passport, they should come.

Because Zelensky is doing that now.

Like Rabbi Yaakov Galinsky, when he did the brit for the KGB commander. So after that, he met him in the street, and he asked him [the KGB commander] how were you not afraid [to do that]? So he [the KGB officer] replied, I know that now it’s bad for the Jews, but there will come a day when it’s good for the Jews. And I want my son to be worthy of that good.

So now, it’s good for the Jews, and whoever is a Jew, they immediately let him pass through [the border], even without a passport, and the non-Jews are exploding because of this.

==

Now, they conducted 200 children [Jewish children from Ukraine] from an orphanage, without passports.

Everything that the Ukrainians did [to the Jews] is being done to them.

But because Zelensky requested that they should pray [for him] in Uman, the war will be finished by Purim. The fear is from the pogroms, because when there is no government, there are pogroms, the same as happened by Ahashverosh.

They call this ‘Brigades’. Because Ahashverosh didn’t let people own a weapon, he just let them pile up all the tables by the door.

They [i.e. the people who wanted to kill the Jews in the Purim story] had to get back by dawn, because Haman only gave them permission to kill [Jews] for one day.

Whoever managed to survive until dawn was saved.

Like the person who told the story of how [in World War II] it was mamash the second where they [i.e. the Nazis] were about to break down the door [and kill him and his family].

He said, in the zchut of Rebbe Nachman!!! – so they (the Nazis) left, and he was saved.

Apparently, Vladimir Zelensky gave another stellar ‘performance’ on Sunday night.

***UPDATES***

This time, it was to the Israeli Knesset.

Watch it below:

(You might want to get in the popcorn… and the sick bag.)

====

I mean, it’s lucky this guy has so much experience as an actor and comedian in front of large audiences….

I mean, how useful, that this guy knows how to work crowds and play his part….

And that he had a few years ‘acting the part of Ukrainian President’, before he got to this main event, when all those rehearsals are paying off.

====

Sadly for Zelensky, his audience in Israel wasn’t so friendly.

Here’s some of what he was saying (from HERE):

Zelensky opened his address with a quote from Golda Meir, a native of Kyiv, and claimed that Ukrainians and Jews worldwide share a connection “in the past and the present.”

“I don’t have to convince you that our peoples are connected, the Jews and the Ukrainians in the past and the present, terrible times.”

We’ve been covering at least some of those ‘connections’ between the people running Ukraine and the people running the State of Israel – and pretty much everywhere else – here on the blog recently.

Including, this:

ISRAEL ARMING UKRAINIAN NAZIS?

But I’m sure – very sure – there is still a lot more to  learn about those ‘connections’, going forward.

====

Underneath that video, above, of Zelensky’s ‘performance’ for the Knesset, you find this telling comment:

Let’s rewind the tape to 1 Jan 2022: Israeli embassy in Kiev condemns nationalists for honoring Nazi collaborator Bandera:

“Israel condemns the nationalist march in honor of Stepan Bandera. Any attempt to glorify those who supported Nazi ideology defiles the memory of Holocaust victims in Ukraine. We are demanding thorough investigation of the antisemitic manifestations that took place during the march in accordance with the law adopted in Ukraine in 2021,” the statement reads.

Earlier on Saturday, Kiev and a number of regions of Ukraine saw torchlight marches timed for an anniversary of Bandera’s birth. In Kiev, the demonstrators marched along the city’s main streets to a point very close to the office of President Vladimir Zelensky.

Stepan Bandera is one of the ideologists of Ukrainian nationalism. During World War II he collaborated with Nazi Germany and up to 1959 he led the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN, outlawed in Russia).

The OUN’s military wing – Ukrainian Insurgent Army (outlawed in Russia) commonly referred to as Banderites – is responsible for many war crimes, including the slaughter of about 100,000 Poles, Czechs and Jews in Western Ukraine. Thousands of Ukrainians had been fiendishly murdered for refusal to collaborate the nationalists. (Volhynia Massacre)

==

In 2010, Bandera was named a “Hero of Ukraine” by the outgoing President Viktor Yushchenko, sparking anger in Europe, Poland and Israel.

He was stripped of the title in 2011 under Yushchenko’s replacement, President Viktor Yanukovych, but when Yanukovych was ousted in 2014, Kyiv’s City Council renamed the city’s Moscow Avenue Stepan Bandera Avenue after the Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine.

There are monuments to Bandera throughout western Ukraine and in 2018, the authorities in Lviv, just 46 miles from the Polish border, announced that 2019 would be the ‘Year of Stepan Bandera’, again sparking protests from Israeli and the Polish government.

====

See, I told you it was a good idea to have the sick bag handy.

Now, let me show you another Zelensky ‘performance’, this time from 2014, when he was still just a famous Ukrainian comedian / actor, and not actually the President of the Country.

By way of context, this clip comes from an hour long video showing the ‘Russian side of things’, that was shared by Reuven, as a comment on THIS post.

====

I found that video very interesting – and also, very disturbing.

It has a lot of clips showing people being mutilated, bombed and killed by Ukrainian neo-Nazis.

So, I ‘screenrecorded’ about 5 minutes, to give you a flavor of the main arguments – minus any graphic pictures and video – which also captured Zelensky’s ‘performance’ about the neo-Nazi problem in Ukraine, back from 2014.

====

The bit where Zelensky starts giving the ‘Heil Hitler’ nazi salute is just HILARIOUS!!!!!

Not.

====

All this is just a ‘show’ to smooth the path for tens of thousands of Ukrainian neo-Nazi Bandistas – who may, or may not be as ‘Jewish’ as their President Zelensky –  to move to Israel, under the ‘Law of Return’.

That’s the main point of Zelensky’s performance for the Knesset on Sunday, whatever else was going on.

Screenshot from HERE:

====

I mean, Ukrainian neo-Nazis in large quantities are presumably really needed for the State of Israel’s police, or something.

Don’t forget, as Zelensky himself stated it so succinctly:

“I don’t have to convince you that our peoples are connected, the Jews and the Ukrainians in the past and the present, terrible times.”

Anyone who saw what happened at Meron last L’ag B’omer understands that this is a totally true statement.

====

UPDATE:  After reading this, one of my readers emailed me a link to this news story and video from the height of the Covid lockdowns in Israel.

https://www.israelnationalnews.com/news/283487

It’s entitled: Police superintendent meets 13-year-old haredi girl who was confronted by police

In case you forgot, this was a video of two Israeli policemen trying to abuse a young chareidi girl by giving her a ticket for walking around in the fresh air with her mask under her chin.

That’s not even the interesting bit.

The interesting bit is the second, shaven-headed policeman who is fully masked, and has NO NAME TAG ANYWHERE.

This same policeman stays totally mute throughout the video, and doesn’t seem to understand a word of what is being said.

My correspondent is speculating that this is one of the infamous ‘Ukrainian Policemen’ that we know have been visiting Israel, including during the Meron DEW atrocity, to ‘observe’ what a great job the Israeli police are doing here. [Sarcasm off].

Here’s two screenshots:

==

====

Sigh.

I was discussing quantum physics with my husband, and how it’s basically a law of physics that the ‘observer’ of the experiment changes the reality of what occurs.

Sometimes, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed, despairing and apathetic, about what small people like you and me can really do to change all this.

I told my husband this:

There doesn’t need to be a majority, or even a large minority of people ‘seeing truth’ and wanting real peace and geula for that to happen. There just needs to be enough of us ‘observing the experiment’, with eyes of prayer and emuna, for everything to change around for the best.

I believe this wholeheartedly.

We will just keep quietly ‘observing’ from the sidelines, praying for God to enlighten us about what is really true here – and in all areas of this ‘world of lies’ we live in – and having the simple emuna that God is really in charge here, whoever may be currently tripping across ‘the stage’ and apparently running the performance from the shadows.

There is nothing else we can really do.

But doing this mamash changes the whole experiment around, for the best.

With God’s help.

====

UPDATE:

I just came across this, footage from 2015, when the Ukrainian army was shelling Donetsk with massive civilan casualties.

It says its graphic content – but the video got ‘blacked out’ by Youtube from about the 4th minute on, just leaving the English subtitles and the audio, which tell their own story.

====

Again, super corrupt USA-puppet Petro Poryshenko – good friend of Joe Biden – came into office, signed the document aligning Ukraine with the EU, and then started shelling his own people in Donetsk and Luzhansk, when they voted to secede from Ukraine, after the EuroMaidan coup in 2014 replaced the democratically elected president Yanukovoych.

Yanukovoych was in favor of Ukraine strengthening economic ties with Russia, and this was enough for the EU / USA to make him persona non grata, and to fund the EuroMaidan coup – using Asov Battalion and Right Sector neo-Nazis – to replace him with super-corrupt Poryshenko – and plunge Ukraine into civil war.

====

As I find more things to help to do the birur, I will try to share them here.

====

UPDATE 2:

Here’s another update from Gonzo, about what is going on Mariupol.

There is some swearing here, be warned, but the insights and information he’s sharing are very important. Gonzo is currently very scared of being ’rounded up’ by the Ukrainian secret police, the SBU and murdered, as has happened to others.

For example, mayor of a small Ukrainian mayor Vlodimir Struk, back in 2014 when all this started (snippet from HERE):

In Luhansk region, the mayor of the UGIL-controlled Kremenna Luhansk region was found dead, Vladimir Struk (ex-deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the Party of Regions). 

Earlier, he suggested that local deputies start communicating with Russia and the LPR.

His murder is the third murder of a sitting mayor since the beginning of the anti-terrorist operation. Before that, the mayor of Starobilsk was killed Vladimir Zhivaga and the Mayor of Kryvyi Rih Konstantin Pavlov.

====

He’s saying that he’s hearing first-hand testimony that the Ukrainian ‘army’ (aka neo-Nazis) are using civilians as human shields in places like Mariupol (listen at the 25 minute mark).

He said that many of the ‘Ukrainians’ in Mariupol are actually ethnically Greek, as they were brought in from Greece by Catherine the Great to farm the region there. And when those Greeks in Mariupol went back to Greece, they started saying that the Azov Battalion are using people as human shields – and they’ve have no reason to lie.

Listen yourself, come to your own conclusions.

====

Here’s the story from Greek Times site:

https://greekcitytimes.com/2022/03/18/greek-refugee-from-mariupol/?amp

Snippet:

In speaking about their escape from Mariupol through a corridor, one refugee speaking in Greek with a distinguishable Ukrainian accent said to OPEN TV: “I remember when leaving Mariupol, Ukrainian soldiers stopped us and threatened us.”

Russian soldiers in tanks were trying to calm us down after all of that,” she added….

The woman’s account of being attacked by the Ukrainian military matches that of another ethnic Greek from Mariupol who said he could not escape the besieged city because he would be killed by the neo-Nazi Azov battalion.

In late February, with Russian forces besieging Mariupol, in which 120,000+ ethnic Greeks live in and its surrounding villages including Sartana, SKAI news spoke with Mr Kiouranas who lives in the city and described the Ukrainian “fascists.”

When asked by SKAI news if he planned to leave the city, Kiouranas responded “how can I leave? When you try to leave you run the risk of running into a patrol of the Ukrainian fascists, the Azov Battalion.”

“They would kill me and are responsible for everything,” he added.

====

These are the people the State of Israel is arming, and bringing over to ‘observe’ Jewish civilians here in the middle of Covid lockdowns and Meron police-planned atrocities.

Draw your own conclusions.

====

UPDATE 3:

The UN wrote a report about Human Rights abuses in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine (amongst others) back in March 2016. You can see that report HERE.

Here’s some snippets from the executive summary:

5: Ukrainian armed forces continue to position themselves near towns and villages while armed groups have embedded deeper into residential areas, further endangering the local population. The risk of re-escalation of hostilities therefore remained high.

12: Residents of territories under the armed groups’ control are particularly vulnerable to human rights abuses, which are exacerbated by the absence of the rule of law and any real protection. OHCHR continued to receive and verify allegations of killings, arbitrary and incommunicado detention, torture and ill-treatment in the ‘Donetsk people’s republic’ and ‘Luhansk people’s republic’.

In these territories, armed groups have established parallel ‘administrative structures’ and have imposed a growing framework of ‘legislation’ which violate international law, as well as the Minsk Agreements. 

15. OHCHR documented allegations of enforced disappearances, arbitrary and incommunicado detention, and torture and ill-treatment, perpetrated with impunity by Ukrainian law enforcement officials, mainly by elements of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU). 

====

Are we now saying the UN was also putting out ‘Russian propaganda’ back in 2016, when it wrote these words?

====

UPDATE 4:

Last one for today…

Our hero Zelensky has apparently now also banned all 11 of Ukraine’s opposition parties.

As of yesterday.

I.e. the day after he appeared at the Knesset doing his ‘performance’ for the MKs and saying this:

“I don’t have to convince you that our peoples are connected, the Jews and the Ukrainians in the past and the present, terrible times.”

I found that out from this clip, below of Tucker Carlson – once you get started on a certain topic on Youtube, it just keeps sending you stuff.

====

So, to sum up:

Zelensky is now officially a one party dictator, supported by neo-Nazis, funded by oligarchs who are deeply involved in so many different evils including human trafficking and connected to the World Economic Forum, in charge of neo-Nazi battalions who are using their civilian populations as human shields, and trying, really, really hard, to start World War III.

Because, you know, Hitler Mark II could never be a Jew…

Of course not.

You might also like this article:

The last few days, I’ve been speed-reading through a bunch of material to put together a ‘time line’ of what has happened in the Ukraine since 2013, to get us to this stage.

Once you understand the history and the context, it gets way easier to understand what is really going on, and that there are no ‘good guys’ here (except the common people like you and me, who really want a God-fearing, just and peaceful world.)

That said, if I had to pick between the greater and lesser evil, Putin and Russia is emerging as the ‘lesser evil’. But study the facts for yourself, below, and come to your own conclusions.

I’m going to do this bullet-point style, to try to set things out as clearly as possible, without overtaxing the braincells – because I’m also finding it harder and harder to keep digesting massive quantities of info at the moment.

And where possible, I will stick in clickable links for you to go back and see where the information is coming from, so you can make your own judgement about whether it’s from a credible source.

Ready?

Let’s do this!

====

1929: The Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) is formed in the Ukraine.

That same year, the Bolsheviks introduce their policy of agricultural ‘collectivisation’ – which is strongly opposed by most Ukrainians. That sets the stage for what is going to happen three year’s later.

====

1932-1933: Around 10 million Ukrainians are deliberately starved to death, as a result of Joseph Stalin’s ‘forced collectivisation’ policies.

The Bolsheviks send their agents to confiscate all food supplies from the Ukrainian peasants, who have been protesting against collectivisation and Bolshevik rule.

This genocide of the Ukrainian people is known as the ‘Holodomor’.

==

1941: Ukrainian nationalist Stepan Bandera takes over the OUN, and adds his name to it: Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists- Bandera (OUNb)

The OUNb is publically aligned with Adolf Hitler, and publishes the following statement of intent:

“The newly-formed Ukrainian State will work closely with the National-Socialist Greater Germany, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, which is forming a new order in Europe and the world, and is helping the Ukrainian people to free itself from Muscovite occupation…”

==

1943: the OUNb military unit kills 70,000 Jews and Poles, in the summer alone.

1948: Stepan Bandera goes to work (secretly…) for British Intelligence (MI6).

Also in 1948, Bandera’s top henchman, Mykola Lebed – the person who oversaw the massacres of 1943 – goes to work for the CIA, fronting a CIA cut out called: Prolog Research Corp.

==

1989-1990: The Berlin Wall is torn down, the USSR collapses.

1992: Leonid Kuchma becomes Ukrainian Prime Minister for the first time.

His daughter is married to Jewish oligarch billionaire, Viktor Pinchuk.

==

2002: Ukrainian opposition call for Kuchma to be impeached, when tape recordings appear to show him ordering the murder of Ukrainian journalist Georgy Gongadze.

He’s charged with that crime in 2011 – but the case is then dropped for lack of admissible evidence.

Also in 2002, Kuchma – who is now president of Ukraine – appoints a Russian-speaking Ukrainian from Donetzk as prime minister, called Viktor Yanukovych.

Kuchma and Yanukovych both want to strengthen ties with Russia.

==

2004: Yanukovych runs for President of Ukraine, and is publically endorsed by Vladimir Putin.

His main challenger is another former PM, and governor of the Ukrainian National Bank, pro-Western Viktor Yushchenko.

Yushchenko is poisoned with Dioxin during the Presidential Campaign and almost dies.

When pro-Russian Yanukovych is declared President of Ukraine, that sparks off the so-called ‘Orange Revolution’ riots.

That leads to the Supreme Court ‘cancelling’ his win and ordering another round of elections.

==

Still in 2004: Evidence emerges that George Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation, together with other US-funded organisations in the Ukraine, were behind the ‘Orange Revolution’ in Ukraine.

==

2005: ‘Pro-Western’ Viktor Yushchenky becomes the new Ukrainian President.

He is also fantastically corrupt – and is plausibly accused of orchestrating much of the plundering of Ukraine by oligarchs and other corrupt elements.

Snippet:

“The appointment to the post of chief banker [of the Ukrainian National Bank] was very timely for Viktor Yushchenko. Not only did it open up new opportunities for personal wealth and influence, but it was also a qualitative leap in his career…

[T]he prosecutor’s office’s investigators were firmly on the tail of the future “hope of the nation”, and the new appointment certainly saved him from criminal prosecution….

And so, with a stroke of the chief banker’s pen, the operating, experienced-staffed, well-established and state-profitable [Ukrainian Interbank Currency Exchange]… was transferred to private hands – into the hands of a clan of financiers, to which, as the facts show, Viktor Yushchenko himself… belonged.”

Go HERE and Google translate to read more. Basically, Yushchenko turned Ukrainian Government Bonds into a pyramid scheme. Yushchenko and a few banks like Merrill Lynch, profited tremendously – on bonds apparently offering a 70% yield! – until it all crashed.

At that point, the Ukrainian economy was wrecked, the country’s credit rating was garbage – and the IMF was waiting in the wings to start lending money with horrible strings attached, designed to further enrich the same small group of corrupt people who caused the problem in the first place.

Totally sickening.

====

Between 2005-2010: Ukraine goes to the elections three times.

Yushchenko is highly unpopular, as Ukrainian president – but he continues to push integration with the West, at every turn even as the Ukrainian economy collapses under the weight of all the corruption.

Snippet from HERE:

Viktor Yushchenko’s ideal was for Ukraine to join all major European economic and political structures, as well as the NATO military bloc, on equal terms with their “old” members.

By 2009, Ukraine wins the ‘honor’ of becoming the most corrupt country in the list of ‘newly emerging countries’ – scoring 4.3 out of a possible maximum 5, for state-sponsored corruption, as Yushchenko and his family and acquaintances continue to plunder national assets for themselves and their shadowy Western ‘sponsors’.

====

January 2010: Pro-Russian Victor Yanukovych becomes the President of Ukraine.

Remember, this is the same guy who was prevented from becoming President back in 2004, by the US-Soros sponsored ‘Orange Revolution’.

Snippet from HERE:

“As president, Yanukovych promptly demonstrated his pro-Russian leanings. In April 2010 he struck a deal with Russian Pres. Dmitry Medvedev to extend Russia’s lease of the port at Sevastopol, the base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, until 2042. In exchange, Ukraine would receive a reduction in the price of Russian natural gas.”

==

April 2013: Yanukovych is pressured into nominally agreeing to sign an ‘Association Agreement’ between Ukraine and the EU.

But he changes his mind, when he figures out it’s going to actually have a negative impact on the Ukraine economy as more of that corrupt oligarch ‘privatisation’ starts to happen all over the place.

So, Yanukovych pulls out in November 2013, leading to the next event:

November 21, 2013: EuroMaidan protests begin in Kiev.

==

Those protests are funded and organised by George Soros and the Obama Administration.

Below, you’ll find a 5 minute clip of the infamous Victoria Nuland, in February 2014, basically setting out how the Obama administration bullied the Ukraine into signing the Association Agreement with the EU after the US-sponsored ‘Euromaidan Coup’ kicked out the President who was standing up to them.

She says: “It was time to finish the job.”

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find a piece from 2014 on the BBC website called this:

Ukraine crisis: Transcript of leaked Nuland-Pyatt call

Pyatt was the US’s ambassador to the Ukraine, just before the ‘EuroMaidan’ coup, that replaced Russian-friendly president with someone more to the liking of the US.

Nuland and Pyatt were basically caught on tape discussing ‘regime change’ in the Ukraine, which then happened shortly afterwards.

====

The EuroMaidan protests were carried out by members of the fascist Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) that you read about at the beginning of this timeline.

In a re-branding exercise, the OUN joined forces with other Ukrainian nationalist groups to become the ‘Right Sector’.

Now, depending on who you listen to, the ‘Right Sector’ is either protecting Ukraine and Ukrainians from ‘Russian aggression’, OR, they have killed 14,000 Russian-Ukrainians since 2014 in the pro-Russian regions of Eastern Ukraine.

It could be, that both statements are correct.

====

March 21, 2014: Petro Poroshenko, ‘pro-Western’ President of Ukraine (and good buddy of Joe Biden) signs the ‘Association Agreement’ between Ukraine and the EU.

Snippet from HERE:

The political provisions of the treaty were signed on 21 March 2014, after a series of events that had stalled its ratification culminated in a revolution in Ukraine and overthrow of the then incumbent President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych...

Russia, Ukraine’s second largest trading partner, instead presented [Yanukovych] an association with the existing Customs Union of Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan as an alternative….

[T]he European Union and the new Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed the economic part of the Ukraine–European Union Association Agreement on 27 June 2014, and described this as Ukraine’s “first but most decisive step” towards EU membership.

====

Also in March 2014: Pro-Russian Crimea votes to secede from the Ukraine, and to  join the Russian Federation instead.

This was a direct reaction to the ‘Euromaidan Coup’ that kicked the democratically-elected Yanukovych out, for trying to stand up for the Ukraine’s own best interest, and replacing him with the corrupt puppet called Petro Poryshenko.

Here’s how the corrupt Guardian covered this flowering of Crimean democratic muscle:

====

April 7, 2014: Donetsk also secedes from Ukraine, and renames itself the ‘Donetsk Peoples Republic’.

It is joined by Luhansk – in the Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine – which becomes the independent “Luhansk People’s Republic.”

Snippet from HERE:

“Ukraine regards both the DPR and the Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) as terrorist organisations.. Ukraine considers them to be part of the “temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine” as a result of Russian military intervention, together with the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol.”

====

From this point on, there was violence between these breakaway states, and the Ukrainian military, including the infamous ‘Azov Battalions’ and Right Sector fascists, who were trying to force these breakaway states full of Russian-Ukrainians to officially rejoin the motherland.

==

September 5, 2014: the Minsk I Treaty between Ukraine, Russia and the shadowy-sounding Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is signed.

This is meant to stop the fighting in the region, and offer greater autonomy to the Russian-speaking breakaway parts of Ukraine, if they agree to rejoin the Ukraine.

The agreement doesn’t stick.

==

September 8, 2014: Amnesty International calls in the Ukrainian government to end the war crimes being committed by the ‘battalions of volunteers’ that it has operating alongside its armed forces.

====

February 2015: The Minsk II Treaty is agreed between Kiev and Donbas, leading to a ceasefire.

Between 2015-16, there is relative peace in the area.

December 2016: Donald Trump is elected President of the USA.

Donbas starts to heat up again – blamed on Kiev’s ‘creeping offensive’ to try to regain more of its lost territory.

Snippet from HERE:

“Alexander Hug, deputy chief of OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission for Ukraine reported that Kiev’s forces had positioned large calibre artillery, including towed howitzers, main battle tanks and multiple-launch rockets, banned under the Minsk deal, in the open, with impunity.”

====

By February 2017: 10,000+ Russian-Ukrainians in the Donbas region had died, as a result of the fighting.

What no-one is telling you, is that the Donbas region actually voted to become an independent state called the Luhansk People’s Republic, and that Ukraine sent in their army to stop that from happening.

You see, how having more of this historical context starts to change the bigger picture?

==

February 1, 2017: President Poroshenko announces that Ukraine will hold a referendum on joining NATO.

==

November 11, 2018: The People’s Council of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the People’s Council of the Luhansk People’s Republic hold elections.

They are heavily criticised for doing this by Ukrainian President Poroshenko, the EU and the US, who basically view these elections as a confirmation that these States are serious about retaining their independence, and starting to chart their own course in the world.

====

May 20, 2019: Comedian and actor Vladimir Zelensky becomes the new President of Ukraine.

He replaces Joe Biden’s good buddy, Petro Poroshenko.

He launches a ‘war against corruption’ – with a particular focus on the corruption of oligarchs with Russian ties.

In the meantime, leaks from the ‘Pandora Papers’ shows that Zelensky recieved $40 million from Igor Kolomoisky since 2012, officially paid out to his Kvartal-95 company, but routed via a number of offshore companies.

====

April 2021: President Zelensky refuses to sit down and talk directly to the breakaway states in the Donbas region.

He’s quoted as saying: “I don’t talk to terrorists.”

This puts the final nail in the coffin of diplomatic efforts to resolve the dispute in the Donbas / Crimea regions.

==

June 2021: Vladimir Putin’s main aide for Ukrainian policy between 2013-2020 suggests Ukraine should become a confederation.

He said: “[The Ukraine] can be reformed as a confederation, with a lot of freedom for the regions to decide things by themselves”

==

December 2021: Russia publically accuses Kiev of breaking the Minsk II ceasefire agreements.

Snippet from HERE:

In December 2021, Chief of General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov said that:

“Kyiv is not fulfilling the Minsk Agreements. The Ukrainian armed forces are touting that they have started to employ US-supplied Javelin anti-tank missile systems in Donbas and are also using Turkish reconnaissance/strike drones. As a result, the already tense situation in the east of that country is further deteriorating.”

==

February 15, 2022: Putin and Russia formally recognise the LPR and DPR as independent countries.

Snippet from HERE:

“Following that decision, on 22 February 2022, President Putin said that the Minsk agreements “no longer existed”, and that Ukraine, not Russia, was to blame for their collapse, accusing Ukraine of genocide in Donbas in his comments.”

====

February 24, 2022: Russia invades Ukraine.

====

There are so many more things I could add into this timeline – especially around all the oligarchs, the World Economic Forum, Biden’s corruption – together with a whole bunch of people in US politics, and elsewhere, Burisma, US-funded Ukrainian biolabs releasing dangerous pathogens into Ukraine itself, etc etc.

But I decided to keep the main story super-simple, in this post.

Going forward, I’m sure we’ll be able to slot more of the pieces of the puzzle into place, now we have a much clearer outline of what actually happened to get us to this stage.

Context is everything.

BH, Hashem will continue to protect all the innocent people caught up in this war of propaganda and lies, apart from whatever actual violence is occurring on the ground.

And also, I’m really praying that God will help more and more of us to realise who our real enemies actually are.

So we can finally get rid of them, for good.

====

PS: I just came across this film, which also sets out a lot more of the true story, behind the US and European sponsored corruption going on in Ukraine.

There’s a reasonable chance it’s telling the truth, because it’s being banned across most social media channels:

I’m watching it now.

I’ll let you know if I learn anything new.
