Pro-Moscow forces have rejected a 'truce' plan proposed by Western puppet Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko as the war against eastern parts of Ukraine by Nazis and their mercenary and NATO allies continues.

The leader of the self-declared Lugansk People's Republic, Valery Bolotov, said on Friday that pro-Russia forces will not lay down their arms until a full withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from the area.

Video: John Pilger on the media and US aggression in Caspian region - interview by Sophie Shevardnaze


Video and transcript inside. Sophie Shevardnadze interviews war correspondent, John Pilger, about media coverage of war in the Ukraine and Syria. He describes the media bias of the west and says how it is impossible to get an unbiased view of what is happening unless you build your own from the internet. Because this man commands so much respect from a complacent and obedient old 'Left' in Australia, there may be some hope that Australians who see this interview will start to question what they are being told by their governments, oppositions, and mainstream media about Syria and Ukraine. Pilger confirms the impression that the United States is baiting Russia aggressively, trying to draw it into war, in order to take over that part of the world. So far Russia has refused to be drawn, despite extreme provocation from an apparently psychopathic Western foreign relations policy actors.

Anti-Russia Wall Street Journal article republished on Voltaire Net

In case you may think Behind Putin's Cynicism and Hypocrisy which appeared on Voltaire Net was invented by Thierry Meyssan as a parody of anti-Russia propaganda, it can also be found here on the the Wall Street Journal. Here are some quotes:

Over the past several weeks, for example, [President Vladimir Putin] has accused the Ukrainian government of stripping autonomy from Ukraine's eastern regions, while moving to end local elections in Russia.

comment: Evidence of war crimes against civilians and independence fighters in Eastern Ukraine by the Kiev junta is overwhelming and conclusive. As one example see Bloodbath in Donesk: Kiev Unleashes Military Attack, Killing Civilians (27 May 2014) on Global Research. See links at the foot of this article for more sources. No citation is given for Tom Malinowski's claim that Vladimir Putin was ending local elections in Russia. A search of Google and Google News using the search terms "Russia local elections" (quotes omitted) produced no evidence.

Putin did nothing wrong by reuniting Crimea with Russia – Polish politician

Article of 8/6/2014 republished from the Voice of Russia. Links to some of the hysterical responses by Western leaders and the mainstream Media (msm) to the decision by Crimeans to join Russia, in preference to remaining within Ukraine, now ruled by Nazis and extreme right wingers, are included at the end of this article. - Ed

Vladimir Putin did nothing wrong by reuniting Crimea with Russia, said Janusz Korwin-Mikke, a European Parliament MP and leader of the Polish political party called the Congress of the New Right. During a panel discussion on local TV he asked others not to talk ill of Putin because "he did nothing to deserve such treatment."

"If, for example, 95 percent of Lvov's citizens were Poles who voted on a referendum to join Poland, no Polish leader would’ve been able to refuse them," he pointed out.

UN Security Council President, Vitaly Churkin media conference on Ukraine

Vitaly Churkin
Unlike the case with President Barack Obama and his paid liars including State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki (embedded press conference also included), Russia's political leaders, including President Vladimir Putin and Vitaly I. Churkin, the English-speaking Russian diplomat, who is, for the month of June 2014, serving as President of the United Nations (UN) Security Council, have no difficulty answering critical questions even from hostile journalists. Vladimir Putin easily handled such questions in his media conference of 4 March and in the embedded video, Russian diplomat Vitaly Churkin, similarly dealt with questions about Ukraine.

Battleground Ukraine by Professor Andrei Fursov

"What's needed is a kind of "pit bull terrier" state, which would be prepared to start at least a local conflict, to show the weakened Russia how events could develop." (Andrei Fursov, speaking of Ukraine's purpose for the US.) The following article is a very readable lecture transcript by Andrei Fursov (Director of Russian Studies, Moscow University. Member of the International Academy of Sciences) dated 2014/04/14. Transcribed from the spoken Russian and compiled from translated English dubbed text. All headings added by Wikispooks to aid with readability and citation.
This is an impressive, comprehensive analysis of the February 2014 Ukraine coup from the perspective of a senior Russian academic. It details the interests and affiliations of the main Ukrainian domestic players - oligarchical clans many of whose leaders have dual nationality - with some shocking and little known detail. It exposes the glaring hypocrisies and double standards of the western sponsors of the coup and their Russian/Ukrainian '5th Column traitors'. It sees the coup and Russia's successful incorporation of Crimea as major game-changing events in the on-going, US-lead post-WWII machinations of the West to subdue Russia to its own agenda and outlines how Russia should now respond.

United States claims vote by Eastern Ukrainians against neo-nazi putschists illegal - Video

Includes Appendix, showing how the ABC's Latelaine of 12 May, similarly covered up the support of the United States and its European allies for the Ukrainian neo-nazis.

Jan Pseki

Jen Psaki, U.S. State department spokespeson, dismissed the high vote in Eastern Ukraine for autonomy from the neo-nazi Kiev junta. She labeled the voting 'carousrel voting'. When asked by a journalist to explain what exactly the term 'carousel voting' meant, Jen Pseki replied, "Ah, you know, the truth is that I was reading that term. I'm not familiar with that term, either. It may be that people weren't checking in. I'll check and see what, what RT meant to say by that term ... "

Close your eyes if you still dare: US support of violent neo-Nazis in Ukraine - Video documentary

Published 18 March 2014, this serious documentary details US support for the neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic, ultra-nationalist movement in Ukraine. The video examines the ongoing US support of these groups, including the Svoboda party and Right Sector and ultimately how the US and NATO have backed these groups all the way into government. It also shows how the Western newsmedia have cooperated or orchestrated the obfuscation of what is really happening.

Poland's ruling elites side with United States and neo-nazis against Ukraine and Russia.

This article by Andrew Korybko was first published on Global Research on 27 April 2014 with the title "Destabilization Training": Poland Trained Ukrainian Neo-Nazi Militants Ahead of EuroMaidan Riots.

Polish media outlet Nie has published a bombshell account about direct Polish involvement in Ukraine's destabilization. Its source alleges that the Polish Foreign Ministry had invited Ukrainian militants into the country and trained them outside of Warsaw in September 2013.

Candobetter editorial comment: Modern history since the time of the Second World War is full of paradoxes.
No other people have suffered as much at the hands of the German Nazis as the Jews and the Poles. Yet, Israeli soldiers and, as this article shows, Polish military instructors, helped the Ukrainian neo-nazis to destabilise the elected Government of President Viktor Yanukovych and overthrow it in the putsch of 22 February 2014.
It remains to be seen if the Polish people will also allow their country to be used as a launching pad by the 600 United State paratroopers who recently arrived in Poland to help the neo-nazis against the people of Ukraine and Russia.

The Syrian Girl: "Regime change" in Ukraine and Venezuela

The Syrian Girl adds her insight to the attempts by US war criminals Barack Obama and John Kerry to isolate Russia and extend the New World Order into Ukraine and Venezuela. As usual the mainstream media, including the ABC, SBS, Fairfax, the Murdoch press, etc., are concealing facts which would harm the image of the US rulers and its allies, including new rulers of Ukraine, including neo-nazis.

Guest column by the distinguished commentator and radio host Stephen Lendman:

Syria has agreed to the Russian proposal to give up its chemical weapons, but the war criminal and totally isolated obama regime, the scum of the earth, says it will attack Syria regardless.

How will the world respond to the Amerikan Third Reich, the worst threat to truth, justice, peace, and humanity that the world has ever experienced? Will the world submit to rule by an outlaw state whose corrupt government represents no one but the Israel Lobby?

However, unless they are tried for their crimes at the International Criminal Court at the Hague, there can be no enduring peace.

The Western onslaught against international law

A new film, "Compliance," examines "the human desire to follow and obey authority."

Liberal institutions, such as the media, universities, federal courts, and human rights organizations, which have traditionally functioned as checks on the blind obedience to authority, have in our day gone over to power's side. The subversion of these institutions has transformed them from checks on power into servants of power. The result is the transformation of culture from the rule of law to unaccountable authority resting on power maintained by propaganda.

Stop IKEA from destroying Russia's remaining 10% of ancient forests

This has been adapted from an e-mail from asumofus.org. Original story here.

The roar of a chainsaw shatters the peaceful calm of the Karelia forest in Northwestern Russia. A logger carves into an exquisite giant -- a 600-year-old tree -- with expert precision. Within minutes, he has masterfully sliced through tree rings, added the felled tree to a growing pile, and moved on to the next.

These trees -- part of Russia's last remaining old-growth forests -- will be chopped up to make cutting boards, wooden spoons and other items for IKEA. IKEA has built a reputation around sustainability and tells its customers, literally, "We Love Wood", and that the furniture they buy will not contain wood from old-growth forests.

Russian law requires registration of "NGO carrying out functions as a foreign agent"

A great majority of Russians believe the new law, requiring Russian NGOs receiving foreign funding to register at the Ministry of Justice as an "NGO carrying out functions as a foreign agent", is long overdue.

The plasma physics drama (Outlook from Moscow)

Moscow plasma physicist, Boris A. Osadin comes in from the cold winter with a fascinating account of the political history of trends in plasma physics theory, experiment and finance in Russia during the Cold War and today. This is an account of exotic Soviet scientific personalities and rival theoretical schools, as well as the broader associated military and international politics and the tolls on science of an 'atomic Gulag'. It is also a tale of how the financing of the ITER project today may be an outcome of the ways in which US, European and Soviet scientists exploited the crazy Cold War politics to the benefit of their research preferences and to survive.

Russians ban kangaroo-meat due to Systemic Oz hygiene problems

"Russia has just announced a ban on all kangaroo products from the 1st August, citing consistent contamination." Lately our politicians have been "trying to convince the Chinese to buy the rejected Russian export kangaroo slush. " (Pat O'Brien, ex-butcher and current President of Wildlife Protection Association of Australia - Patron Steve Irwin).

What's in it for Russia? Georgia, Ossetia, & Caspian oil and gas

One impact of Georgia's nose-thumbing Russia has been for the US and Europe to take a step backwards, away from it. This leaves Georgia, not only vulnerable to a Russian take-over, but it also frees Georgia to succumb to Russia.
