Filling the Gaps of a Western Narrative – The Russia Edition

by | Mar 14, 2022 | World Events

I probably don’t need to explain where we are at right now, unless you have just woken from a coma, or left a dark cave for the first time in weeks then you will know that an all out global attack on Russia has begun due to Russia’s decision to ‘demilitarise’ the Ukraine.

The headlines looked something like this:

Russian forces launch full-scale invasion of Ukraine

The media quickly worked in unison to express their disbelief over Russia’s move against the Ukraine. Terms like ‘unprovoked’ and describing Putins’ behaviour as ‘irrational’ and his reasoning as ‘false’. The BBC published an article to its millions of readers around the World asking ‘Why is Russia invading Ukraine?’:

Russian troops are closing in on Ukraine’s capital, days after Russia’s leader ordered a full-scale invasion from the north, east and south. In a pre-dawn TV address on 24 February, he declared Russia could not feel “safe, develop and exist” because of what he claimed was a constant threat from modern Ukraine.

Airports and military headquarters were hit first then tanks and troops rolled into Ukraine from Russia, Russian-annexed Crimea and ally Belarus.

Many of President Putin’s arguments were false or irrational. He claimed his goal was to protect people subjected to bullying and genocide and aim for the “demilitarisation and de-Nazification” of Ukraine. There has been no genocide in Ukraine: it is a vibrant democracy, led by a president who is Jewish.

“How could I be a Nazi?” said Volodymr Zelensky, who likened Russia’s onslaught to Nazi Germany’s invasion in World War Two. Ukraine’s chief rabbi and the Auschwitz Memorial have also rejected Mr Putin’s slur. – BBC NEWS

So, that’s it, right? Vladimir Putin has gone mad. He is invading Ukraine without any reason. This is an unprovoked attack on a nation which poses no threat whatsoever. Putin is Hitler reborn!

It must be true, the media is complicit in this narrative, political leaders from all around the World are complicit in this narrative, so surely it must be true.

Many moons ago I wrote a series of articles for a blog entitled ‘Filling the gaps of a Western Narrative’, in these articles I analysed major events and filled in the missing pieces, those pieces of the story conveniently left out by the majority of western media.

Once these gaps in the narrative were filled, a very different story begins to emerge and with this different story, develops a different reaction from the reader. Suddenly, the big bad Gaddafi seemed almost human. Suddenly his actions appeared to have reason and while we may not agree with everything Gaddafi did, we do begin to understand the forces that may have led him to take the path that he did. Suddenly, the peace-loving west, i.e us, no longer seems so ‘peaceful’ and their intent no longer so morally pure and virtuous.

I’d like now to take a similar approach to the current events we are seeing unfolding between Russia, Ukraine and the rest of the peace-loving world. But in order to do that, we need to take a little trip backwards through time. We need to go back almost a decade to 2014.

Neo-Nazi Government Installed in Ukraine

Let us begin with a statement from the New York Times which stated:

 “The United States and the European Union have embraced the revolution here as another flowering of democracy, a blow to authoritarianism and kleptocracy in the former Soviet space.” – New York Times

Of course, this is little more than western biased fantastical fiction. The truth is very far removed from this statement.

In reality it looks something a little more like this. In February 2014, United States neo-conservatives instigated a coup. Leaked recordings clearly show that Washington was heavily involved in the composition of the replacement government for the Ukraine:

The leaked conversation appeared certain to embarrass the United States and seemed designed to bolster charges – from Russia, among others – that the Ukrainian opposition is being manipulated by Washington, which President Barack Obama’s administration strenuously disputes. – Reuters

Nuland openly boasted how the US had spent over $5 Billion over almost twenty years on the Ukraine to help them build a new democratic society.

The coup was managed by Victoria Nuland, but the now president, then Vice President Joe Biden, was ultimately in charge of the operation. It may be of interest to some, that Joe Bidens son, Hunter Biden went on to benefit quite well from this coup.

Burisma, a private oil and gas company in Ukraine, announced this week that it has appointed Hunter Biden, the youngest son of US Vice President Joe Biden, to its board of directors.

The company, founded in 2002, is controlled by a former energy official in the government of deposed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. – BBC News

The newly installed western approved government of the Ukraine didn’t hang about. Within three days of being in power, their hostility towards Russian speaking citizens within the nation was clear. The Russian language was removed as an official state language. At that time Russian speaking citizens made up 30% of the Ukraines population.

It is important to reflect on the fact that the West, formally committed to democratic values, has not only spearheaded the demise of an elected president, it has instated a political regime integrated by Neo-Nazis. – globalresearch.ca

The secession of Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk are a direct result of this 2014 coup. Shortly after the coup, a referendum was organised in Crimea. With an 83% turnout and 97% voting in favour, Crimean’s seceded from Ukraine and re-unified with Russia.

Crimea had been part of Russia since 1783 and when the administration of Crimea was transferred to the Ukraine in 1954, they were all part of the Soviet Union.

In the provinces of Luhansk and Donetsk on the border with Russia, the majority of the population spoke Russian and thus had no hostility towards Russia. But this soon changed as the hostile Kiev coup regime began enacting policies in a direct attack at the people of Luhansk and Donetsk.

In the spring of 2014, the Luhansk and Donetsk Peoples Republics declared their independence from the Kiev regime.

The Minsk agreements were a series of international agreements which sought to end the war in the Donbas region of Ukraine.

Ukraine, Ukrainian rebels, Russia and other European authorities all signed these agreements. Their purpose was an attempt to stop the ongoing bloodshed in eastern Ukraine,  keep the territorial integrity of Ukraine intact while granting a measure of autonomy to Luhansk and Donetsk. There are 17 similar autonomous zones within Europe, so this measure was not particularly unusual.

The agreements were later rebuffed by both the Kiev government and Washington. The breakdown of the agreement led Russia to take the actions we are now seeing in the news, the demilitarisation of Ukraine.

It is important to realise just how significant the coup by the west was in the realisation of current events. The following is an excerpt from an article by globalresearch.ca from back in 2014 in the composition Ukraines coalition government:

We are not dealing with a transitional government in which Neo-Nazi elements integrate the fringe of the coalition, formally led by the Fatherland party.

The Cabinet is not only integrated by the Svoboda and Right Sector (not to mention former members of defunct fascist UNA-UNSO), the two main Neo-Nazi entities have been entrusted with key positions which grant them de facto control over the Armed Forces, Police, Justice and National Security.

While Yatsenuyk’s Fatherland Party controls the majority of portfolios and Svoboda Neo-Nazi leader Oleh Tyahnybok was not granted a major cabinet post (apparently at the request of assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland), members of Svoboda and the Right Sector occupy key positions in the areas of Defense, Law Enforcement, Education and Economic Affairs.

Andriy Parubiy (image right) co-founder of the Neo-Nazi  Social-National Party of Ukraine (subsequently renamed Svoboda) was appointed Secretary of the National Security and National Defense Committee (RNBOU). (Рада національної безпеки і оборони України), a key position which overseas the Ministry of Defense, the Armed Forces, Law Enforcement, National Security and Intelligence. The RNBOU is central decision-making body. While it is formally headed by the president, it is run by the Secretariat with a staff of 180 people including defense, intelligence and national security experts.

Parubiy was one of the main leaders behind the Orange Revolution in 2004. His organization was funded by the West. He is referred to by the Western media as the “kommandant” of the EuroMaidan movement.

Andriy Parubiy together with party leader Oleh Tyahnybok is a follower of Ukrainian Nazi Stepan Bandera, who collaborated in the mass murderer of Jews and Poles during World War II.

Pot Kettle Black

While the events that led to this point are more than enough to expose the wests part in current events, there is the subject of hypocrisy to consider also. While the west paint Russia and Putin as something akin to the beginnings of Hitlers Nazi Germany because of the ongoing targeted attacks on Ukraine military targets by Russia, many seem to have forgotten our long reign of terror across the Middle East and Africa.

What about Iraq? We went to war in Iraq based on an outright lie that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction in his clutches. There were no WMDs, George W. Bush Jr knew this, UKs Prime Minister at the time Tony Blair, knew this, and yet it took an all out destruction of Iraq, a public hanging aired on news networks around the World of Saddam Hussein, millions of lives destroyed, cities turned into rubble and a decade long occupation for the West to end their regime and decide that “Maybe we made a mistake?”.

The West has repeated this time and time again in Syria, in Libya, in Afghanistan.

The hypocrisy is disgusting and unforgivable. The media and the public are equally complicit in this hypocrisy as virtue signallers embed the Ukrainian flag into their social profile images, as industry removes all trace of Russian goods from their infrastructure and the sports industry ban all Russians from participation from future events, this is the vilification of an entire nation based on lies and deception.

And What is This?

 

The Black Sun was first employed in post–Nazi Germany by neo-Nazis and in some strains of Satanism. The symbol’s design consists of twelve radial sig runes, similar to the symbols employed by the SS in their logo. How ever this symbol usage gets painted up by the media, there is no getting away from the fact that it is a Nazi symbol.

According to Wikipedia:

The Black Sun symbol is widely used by neo-fascist, neo-Nazi, the far-right and white nationalists. The symbol often appears on extremist flags, t-shirts, posters, websites and in extremist publications associated with such groups. Modern far-right groups often refer to the symbol as the sun wheel or Sonnenrad. – Wikipedia

I’ll leave that there, but there is something else I think we need to quickly touch on. We keep hearing that the nazification of the Ukraine is little more than the delusions of Putins insane mind, however it wasn’t so long ago our western media was reporting on the same issues.

Take this article from Reuters in 2018 entitled ‘Ukraine’s neo-Nazi problem’:

As Ukraine’s struggle against Russia and its proxies continues, Kiev must also contend with a growing problem behind the front lines: far-right vigilantes who are willing to use intimidation and even violence to advance their agendas, and who often do so with the tacit approval of law enforcement agencies. – Reuters

The article when on to show us a training camp for radicalising children in the Ukraine:

However, this same media is now in total denial of Ukraines Nazi problem. Now this doesn’t justify Russia’s response, but it tells a very different story to the one we are being fed.

There are two sides to every story. Nothing is black and white and to ignore this is unforgivable and dangerous. We don’t have to endorse Russia’s current actions against Ukraine, certainly not, however we must understand that this was not an unprovoked attack by Russia, this has been on the boil a very long time and much of the fuel added to the fire was provided and stoked by the West.

I’d urge everyone to listen to a plea from 21st Century Wires Patrick Henningsen who did a rare live stream on facebook for people to consider the facts surrounding this – check it out here.

There is so much to discuss on this matter, from the fake footage being promoted as Russian attacks in the media to the promotion of western civilians joining the Ukrainian army to fight the Russians – but for now I will leave this here. We can talk about this further over on our Telegram Group over the coming days and weeks.
