MH17 Turnabout: Ukraine’s Guilt Now Proven

  • MH17 Turnabout: Ukraine’s Guilt Now Proven
    by ERIC ZUESSE, https://www.strategic-culture.org/
    Finally, a clear and convincing — and unrefuted — case can now be presented to the public, as to precisely whom the guilty party was, that downed the MH17 Malaysian airliner over Ukraine on 17 July 2014, and why it was done. The complete case, which will be fully documented here, displays unequivocally who needed the MH17 murders (of 298 persons) to be perpetrated. This mass-murder was done for one leader’s very pressing obsession. For him, it simply had to be done, and done at that precise time.

    The full MH17 case will be presented here, to be judged by the public, because no court of law which possesses the power to bring this (or even any) case on the MH17 murders, is willing to do so, and because the evidence in this 17 July 2014 case has become overwhelming, and is unrefuted. This evidence is accepted by both sides. But it still remains effectively hidden from the publics in the United States and its allied countries. (The present news-report, which is the first ever to present this entire case, is submitted to all news-media in English-speaking countries, so that any of them that wishes to provide its audience access to this uncontested and conclusive evidence in the MH17 case can do so, by publishing this article. Any of them that won’t, don’t want their audience to have access to the conclusive evidence in this case, because this article is being made available to all of them to publish, free of charge; so, there is no other reason not to publish it.)
    ….
    With the passage now of years, the precise cause of the shooting-down of the Malaysian passenger plane MH17 on 17 July 2014 has been becoming clearer and clearer, despite the rigorous continuing attempts by Western ‘news’ media to cover it up and to hide from the public the growing and by-now irrefutable evidence (presented here) that clearly shows what and who actually brought down this airliner.

    In the years since I headlined on August 24th of 2014 the news, “MH-17 ‘Investigation’: Secret August 8th Agreement Seeps Out: Perpetrator of the Downing in Ukraine, of the Malaysian Airliner, Will Stay Hidden”, the key fact about the official ‘investigation’ has actually been that the Government of Ukraine was, on 8 August 2014, granted veto-power over any official finding which would be produced by the Joint Investigative Team. On 20 November 2014, Russian Television headlined “Dutch government refuses to reveal ‘secret deal’ into MH17 crash probe” and reported that Holland’s science-publishers Elsevier had filed for this information under that country’s Freedom of Information Act, and the Government simply refused to comply with that law. The leaders of Western nations apparently want the black-box and much other basic data in their possession to remain hidden, and the four nations had signed this secret agreement to allow the Government of Ukraine to block any report that incriminates Ukraine in the MH17 shoot-down. But additional evidence has nonetheless become public, and all of it confirms and adds yet further details to the explanation that was first put forth by the retired German Lufthansa pilot Peter Haisenko, whose independent investigation had concluded that Ukrainian Government fighter-jets intentionally shot down this civilian plane. He did not rule out the possibility that a Buk missile had simultaneously been used there, but he made clear that at least one fighter-jet had been used in this shoot-down.

    However, if those parts of a Buk missile, which were the focus of the Netherlands team’s presentation on May 24th, were indeed retrieved from the crash-site as that team claims, then a Buk missile had also hit the MH17. Serious question would nonetheless exist as to whether that Buk was fired by troops who were working for Ukraine, or instead for Russia (or else for Donbas separatists who were working in conjunction with Russia, which was Ukraine’s and America’s original version of the event).

    Precisely what the method was, by which the direct perpetrators brought down the MH17, has gradually become clearer, despite this continuation of Western secrecy (and Ukraine’s veto-power over the ‘findings’) regarding the contents of the black boxes, and of the US satellite images, and of the Ukrainian air-traffic-control radar recordings, and of other evidence-sources that are still being held secret by The West and not made available to their ‘news’ media nor to anyone outside a tight official circle of those Western nations’ intelligence agencies.

    But now, Russia has actually — on 17 September 2018 — exposed the outright fraudulence of the JIT’s 24 May 2018 presentation, and The West (the US Government’s allies) entirely ignored the conclusive evidence that that presentation by the JIT itself actually contained and to which Russia was pointing, so that there can no longer be reasonable doubt about The West’s intentional and still ongoing fraudulence regarding the entire MH17 matter.

    Also entirely ignored in the Ukrainain team’s ‘explanation’ of the event is why Ukraine’s air-traffic control had guided the MH17’s pilot to fly over the conflict-zone where Ukraine’s civil war was being waged and where Ukraine’s war-planes were bombing. The MH17’s pilot was instructed by Ukraine’s air-traffic control to take that path instead of the one that the airline had planned and that had become normal during the civil war. This was highly abnormal, and it doomed the MH17. Clearly, only Ukraine’s Government could, and did, do that — change the route, and for only that one plane. Yet, still, the Netherlands-headed team blames Russia and is trusted in The West, but Russia is not. (Now, why would that be?)

Washington Just Injected Serious Cash and Weapons into Ukraine’s Far-Right Regime

  • Washington Just Injected Serious Cash and Weapons into Ukraine’s Far-Right Regime
    by Finian Cunningham, https://www.mintpressnews.com/
    It doesn’t seem to bother US lawmakers that the government of Ukraine is dominated by Neo-Nazi demagogues and paramilitaries who worship Stepan Bandera and other Ukrainian collaborators in the Third Reich’s Final Solution.

    Oh, what a lovely big stocking-filler for the Kiev regime this week from Washington. Just in time for Christmas too, and only weeks after President Petro Poroshenko tried to incite a war with Russia from a naval provocation in the Kerch Strait.

    First, we had US government envoy Kurt Volker announcing this week that an additional $250 million in military weapons were being packaged in Congress for Ukraine. Then the DC-based international lending institutions, the IMF and World Bank, signed off on multi-billion-dollar loans for Poroshenko’s regime.

    US government-owned Radio Free Europe described the new financial loans as a “victory” for Poroshenko. The apparent investor confidence bestowed by the Washington-based “development agencies” will boost the incumbent president’s re-election prospects in the forthcoming ballot in March. Up until recently, Poroshenko was trailing in opinion polls and looked set for a trouncing defeat in the election. How convenient that the IMF and World Bank – under the control of US government – should step up to the plate with a very big helping hand. And that’s not seen as interference in a country’s sovereign affairs?

    Since the CIA-backed coup d’état in Kiev in February 2014 against the elected government of Viktor Yanukovych, it is estimated that the US has provided the cabal that seized power with up to $1 billion in military aid. And those dubious gifts keep coming, with the envoy Kurt Volker this week announcing to a forum in Brussels that the US Congress is processing an additional $25o million.


    It doesn’t seem to bother American lawmakers that the Kiev regime is dominated by Neo-Nazi demagogues and paramilitaries who worship Stepan Bandera and other Ukrainian collaborators in the Third Reich’s Final Solution. Just recently President Poroshenko was photographed inspecting Ukrainian special forces some of whom were donning insignia of the Third Reich’s SS.

    As Russian President Vladimir Putin pointed out in his annual press conference this week, the Kiev regime has been waging a war and a blockade against its own Ukrainian citizens in the eastern Donbas region for over four years, in which civilians continue to be killed on a daily basis.

    One reason why that war remains largely unknown in the West is that western news media don’t report on it. Or when they do, they distort with lies that Russia has “invaded Ukraine”. This is similar to how the Western news media largely “forgot” to report on the war in Yemen, and when they have bothered to mention Yemen at all, they again distort by calling it a proxy war with Iran.

    The Ukraine war against the ethnic Russian people of eastern Ukraine is driven by a rabid Russophobia subscribed to by the Kiev regime consistent with the exterminatory mentality of the Third Reich with whom their antecedents collaborated with during the Second World War.

Kiev Plans New Year’s Gift for Russia: Verkhovna Rada Asks Poroshenko to Declare War

  • Vesti News Published on Dec 24, 2018
    At this year’s final meeting of the Verkhovna Rada, the Ukrainian officials seem to have decided to ultimately put an end to Ukrainian-Russian relations. The officials prepared an address to President Poroshenko, asking him to sever all diplomatic ties and transportation links with Russia, as well as declare an actual war on Moscow. It’s possible that their decision might have been influenced by the wild office party held the day before by the Poroshenko Bloc together with its founder.

Russia Repeats Claim That Ukraine Is Preparing A ‘Provocation’

  • Russia Repeats Claim That Ukraine Is Preparing A ‘Provocation’
    by https://www.rferl.org/, 24 Dec 2018
    Russia’s Foreign Ministry has said “it is quite possible” that Ukraine “might switch to full-scale combat actions within the next few days.” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova made the statements in Moscow on December 24, repeating claims by Russian officials predicting a “provocation” by Kyiv in the near future. 

    The unsubstantiated claims come at a time of high tensions between the two countries since Russia seized three Ukrainian Navy ships and their crews near the Kerch Strait on November 25. The United States and the European Union have denounced that action and called on Russia to release the vessels and seamen immediately. 

    “Apart from a ground operation, Kyiv is also mulling other option to increase tensions in the region and extend martial law,” Zakharova said. “We are really concerned about increasingly more frequent reports by ‘experts’ in Ukrainian media outlets on the possible use of chemical-warfare agents by [Russia-backed militants in eastern Ukraine].” 

    “This circumstance gives grounds to presume that the strategists in Kyiv have thoroughly analyzed the record of their foreign supervisors in staging provocations involving the use of weapons of mass destruction and are ready to put them into practice.”

The UK and the US Ramp Up Tensions with Russia Over Ukraine

  • The UK and the US Ramp Up Tensions with Russia Over Ukraine
    by https://www.telesurenglish.net/
    The US and the UK are looking to increase funding for navy and to send navy ships to the Ukraine, respectively, as a means to boost the country’s capacity to fight Russia.

    On Saturday, the United Kingdom‘s defense ministry deployed a navy warship to Ukraine in order to “send a message” to Russia, while the United States state department is busy trying to channel millions of dollars to Kiev in order to boost their navy’s ability to confront Russia actions which raise the already existing tensions among the Eastern European countries.

    The U.K.’s Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson believes sending a navy warship to the Black Sea is a way to support Ukraine against Russia, according to the BBC. This is one of many ships which will be sent to the area to establish a British presence there, stated the defense secretary.

    William has put forth a defense paper titled “Mobilizing, Modernizing and Transforming Defense.” In this paper, Russia is attributed to committing acts such as cyber attacks, assassination, disinformation, as well as aiming to “blunt” the strategic advantage of the Western armies.

    For the Russia Today media agency, these allegations amount to a portrayal typical of a “common Hollywood action flick where Russia is the main villain,” reminiscent of Cold War propaganda.

    The United States government is engaged in its own form of conflict escalation. The state department recently issued a statement saying it will seek Congressional approval to “provide an additional US$10 million in Foreign Military Financing to further build Ukraine’s naval capabilities.”

    For its part, the Russian government sent over a dozen SU-27 and SU-30 fighter jets to Crimea.

    Tensions have recently been on the rise in the Black Sea because of an incident between Ukrainian warships and Russian patrols at the Kirch strait, in which the Russian navy shot at the vessels to induce them to stop what they alleged where dangerous maneuvers aimed to cause a provocation.

Ukraine to Declare War on Russia Next?

  • Ukraine to Declare War on Russia Next?
    by https://thesaker.is/, 22 Dec 2018
    Note by The Saker: Eugenia and the other translators were wondering whether it was worth translating such a demented piece of proposed legislation, but I asked them to go ahead and do it even though I fully agree with them that the author of this text is clearly completely insane and the ideas this draft legislation are the product of sick, hateful and infinitely stupid minds.  But that is precisely the point!  I am personally sick and tired of the western patrons and sponsors of the Euromaidan and of the very notion of a “Ukraine” constantly trying to constantly put some half-way decent make-up on what are the demented, corrupt and, yes, Nazi faces of the ruling Ukronazi junta in Kiev.  The truth is that just like in the cases of Noriega, Saddam Husein, al-Qaeda, the Takfiris in Syria and elsewhere, the West is yet again allied with, and protector of, an ugly clique of hateful and demented people.  This resolution is a very good example of the kind of ideas which this AngloZionist ruling gang of thugs have advocated for many decades (beginning with the hate-saturated propaganda of  RFE/RL, VOA, BBC, DW and the rest of them), then inside the Ukraine since even before 1991 and now from the Ukie Rada and Presidency.  When we post this text, we are simply holding up a mirror to the collective face of the AngloZionists but, as we say in Russian, don’t blame the mirror if your face looks crooked!   This translation is important because it shows what kind of demented monsters the collective West has lovingly nurtured for decades.  It is also important because it is a direct attack on Poroshenko from the Nazi-crazies in the Rada, folks who might well one day replace him as the President of the “Independent Euro-compatible the Ukraine”.  When that happens, at least they won’t be quite able to say “we did not know”.  Yes, you did know, you have known for decades, and at the end of the day, this resolution is not the product of the demented mind of one crazy Ukie, but a pure product of the rabid russophobia of the collective West.  And for that I say: shame on you!

    Translation by Eugenia
    On December 21st just four days after Sergei Lavrov stated that Russia will not wage war against Ukraine, three days after Speaker A.Parubiy met US Special Representative K.Volker to discuss “recent Russian aggression” and “further support of Ukraine by United States of America,” and a day after A.Parubiy named the UK to be mightiest balancing military force in the Black Sea, Vitaly Kupriy, a member of the Ukrainian Rada, and an associate of Israeli oligarch Igor Kolomoisky, submitted a draft resolution No. 9442 titled “Draft Resolution on the appeal of the Supreme (Verkhovna) Rada of Ukraine to the President of Ukraine about declaration of war, termination of diplomatic relations and the cessation of transport connections with the Russian Federation.


    The text of the proposed resolution is still absent on the official website, but the Ukrainian lawmaker graciously posted it on his official FaceBook page, accompanied by a memorandum titled: Down with usurpation!

The Warnings of Escalation in the Russia-Ukraine Standoff: “Christmas Surprise?” — Alexander Vershbow, Ex NATO Deputy Secretary General

  • The Warnings of Escalation in the Russia-Ukraine Standoff: “Christmas Surprise?” — Alexander Vershbow, Ex NATO Deputy Secretary General
    by , https://www.axios.com/
    Vladimir Putin declared Thursday that the crisis in relations with Ukraine will continue “as long as Russophobes remain in the corridors of power in Kiev.” Meanwhile, in Kiev, a brawl broke out in parliament over a poster accusing a Ukrainian politician of serving as “Putin’s agent.”

    The big picture: 
    Tensions between Russia and Ukraine are still simmering 25 days after Russia intercepted, fired on and seized three Ukrainian naval vessels off of Crimea, taking 24 sailors prisoner in the process. Both sides continue to accuse the other of provocations that could lead to war.


    Putin insisted that Russia will hold the sailors until they face trial. In Ukraine, a top national security official said Kiev has “no choice” but to send warships into the Sea of Azov — a move that could spark another confrontation.

    * “Just because it’s been quiet for a couple weeks doesn’t mean we won’t have a Christmas surprise,” Alexander Vershbow, a former NATO Deputy Secretary General and U.S. ambassador to Russia now at the Atlantic Council, tells me. “The propaganda coming out of the Russians is at least preparing the ground for something new.”

    * Vershbow says there are similarities between what’s happening in Ukraine today and the “creeping annexation” by Moscow that preceded the 2008 war in Georgia. He says the lack of concrete actions from the U.S. and Europe after last month’s flare-up only make further aggression more likely.

    * “They’ve essentially annexed the Kerch Strait,” Vershbow says of the waters separating Crimea and Russia, where the confrontation took place, “and the West swallowed it.”

    Where things stand…
    * Kurt Volker, the U.S. special envoy for Ukraine, says the push for more U.S. sanctions on Moscow is “gaining some traction.” The EU extended existing sanctions, but there’s no consensus on further steps.

Christmas Eve Surprise? Bulgarian Officer Claims Ukraine-Russia War Starts December 24th

  • The word is that the Ukraine provocation will be ignited 24/25 Dec 2018. Whether the Russians will respond in all out war remains to be seen. It is the western Illuminati who is desperate to ignite WW3. The Russians can pick and choose when they will fight WW3. Desperate people will make mistakes which the Russians will respond, IMO, in overwhelming force. The question is when and where? WW3 may not be next week.

Russia Readies Itself for Ukraine’s “Provocation” by Year-End, Threatens with “Retaliation”

  • Russia Readies Itself for Ukraine’s “Provocation” by Year-End, Threatens with “Retaliation”
    by https://www.unian.info/
    Lavrov alleges the president of Ukraine is discussing the operation on the border with Crimea with his “Western supervisors.” 

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said Ukraine has been masterminding an act of “provocation” on the Russian-Ukrainian border, which may happen late in December, therefore he has promised “retaliation.” “Additional information that we have got and which we tend to trust is that Poroshenko is planning an armed provocation on the border with the Russian Federation, on the border with Crimea in the last ten days of December,” Lavrov told the Komsomolskaya Pravda radio station, according to an UNIAN correspondent in Russia.

    Lavrov says he expects Ukraine’s “provocations” in the Kerch Strait zone will also continue. At the same time, he said Russia was ready to “retaliate to the fullest.” “He [Poroshenko] will get an answer to the fullest, I promise,” Lavrov said. He also alleged the president of Ukraine had been discussing the operation on the border with Crimea with his “Western supervisors.”

    Lavrov said Poroshenko was reportedly advised to support low-intensity military operations so that they could “be constantly yelling through propaganda channels that Russians are attacking Ukraine,” without switching the hostilities to the mode that will be followed by full-scale responses. “The provocation is nasty, petty, our relevant services are taking all necessary measures to prevent such excesses from happening,” he said.

More US Weapons to Ukraine Will Only Make Conflict Worse – Russian Lawmakers

  • More US Weapons to Ukraine Will Only Make Conflict Worse – Russian Lawmakers
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Additional and “ongoing” US weapons deliveries to Kiev would escalate tensions and undermine efforts for peace in Ukraine, Russian officials said after US special envoy Kurt Volker announced such plans, along with more sanctions.

    “Moving through Congress is a military financing package of around $250 million and the ability to sell additional equipment,”
     Volker told reporters in Brussels on Monday. “Within the next months there will be some announcements about the first tranches. And it will be ongoing.”

    He also claimed that Ukraine is “under attack” by Russia and advocated for a Western military presence near or even inside that country, to “raise the visibility of Russia’s actions.”

    The notion of imposing additional sanctions on Russia over the November 25 maritime incident in the Kerch Strait seems to be “gaining some traction”among Washington’s allies in Europe, Volker said, hinting it might happen
    “in the next month or two.”

    Russian lawmakers slammed Volker’s statements as destructive, saying the US envoy was contributing to escalating tensions in Ukraine rather than resolving them peacefully.

    “This confirms once again that the US regards Ukraine as a puppet and a proxy for implementing its aggressive designs against Russia,”
     Yuri Shvytkin, deputy chair of the Duma’s defense and security committee, told RT.


    “By supplying Ukraine with any types of weapons, the US encourage the escalation of tensions with Russia in the first place, which of course does not benefit stability in the region,”
     Shvytkin added.

US Wants to Stir Up War Between Russia and Ukraine – Russian Diplomat

  • US Wants to Stir Up War Between Russia and Ukraine – Russian Diplomat
    by http://tass.com/
    According to Russia’s Deputy UN Representative Dmitry Polyansky, “Washington is trying not only to push the two fraternal peoples against each other, but also to unleash a full-scale war between them”

    UNITED NATIONS, December 18. /TASS/. The United States is trying to stir up a full-scale war between fraternal Russian and Ukrainian peoples, according to Russia’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Dmitry Polyansky.

    “Instead of reasoning with the ‘Maidan’ regime, forcing it to hear the voice of the people, it is supplied with weapons and all kinds of support, including military, is demonstrated,” the diplomat said, speaking at the UN General Assembly.

    “Such actions suggest that Washington is trying not only to push the two fraternal peoples against each other, but also to unleash a full-scale war between them,” Polyansky noted.

    The United Nations General Assembly earlier adopted the resolution proposed by Ukraine on “militarization problem” of Crimea and the waters of the Azov and Black Sea. 66 countries supported the document, 19 were against it, 72 – abstained.

    The resolution stated that presence of the Russian military in Crimea contradicts the national sovereignty, political independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine. The document also condemns Russia because of constructing a bridge across the Kerch Strait. At the same time, the General Assembly rejected amendments proposed by Iran and Syria, aimed at balancing the document and containing references to the Minsk agreements.

    In the morning of November 25, three ships from the Ukrainian Navy – the Berdyansk, the Nikopol and the Yany Kapu – illegally crossed Russia’s border. They ignored legitimate demands to stop issued by vessels belonging to the FSB Border Service and the Black Sea Fleet and continued maneuvering dangerously. In order to stop the Ukrainian ships, weapons were used. A criminal investigation has been opened into the border incident.

Russia Deploys 10 Fighter Jets in Crimea

  • PressTV Published on Dec 17, 2018
    Moscow says it’s deploying ten fighter jets to Crimea as tension is rising between Russia and Ukraine. The Russian defense ministry said the fighter jets will be permanently stationed in the Belbek air base in Crimea. It comes after Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov accused Kiev of preparing an armed provocation near the borders of Crimea before the end of the year. Tensions between the two countries flared in November after Russia seized three Ukrainian naval ships that had illegally entered the Russian waters, off the coast of the Crimean peninsula. Kiev said Moscow blocked the vessels from passing into the Sea of Azov through the Kerch Strait. Tensions have been high around the Black Sea since Crimea rejoined Russia following a referendum in 2014.
