London Guardian Fake News on Ukraine
by Stephen Lendman
In late January, Ukrainian military forces escalated naked aggression on Donbass. Conditions are tense along the contact line separating both sides.
Shelling by artillery, tanks, mortars and other weapons against Donbass communities is relentless, civilians in the line of fire.
Since Minsk II ceasefire terms were agreed on in February 2015, Donbass freedom fighters alone observed them. Ukrainian forces violated them straightaway – escalating conflict two weeks ago, mobilizing tens of thousands of troops along the contact line, likely preparing for full-blown war.
Nazi-infested OUN and Right Sector fighters are involved. According to Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Deputy Defense Minister Eduard Basurin, US-installed Ukrainian puppet president Poroshenko rejects diplomatic conflict resolution.
His “party of war” continues “aggravating the situation…for their enrichment from…bloodshed and fratricide. No matter what, we strictly adhere to the Minsk Agreements and the ceasefire.”
“We stand for a peaceful process of the conflict resolution” while prepared to defend DPR as needed against hostile aggression – done very successfully earlier and again now.
reported things backwards, blaming Donbass victims for aggression committed against them, along with calling Russia “newly emboldened by the election of Donald Trump…”
The Guardian quoted Ukraine’s illegitimate foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin’s Big Lies, blaming Donbass freedom fighters for high crimes committed by his regime.
The Guardian turned truth on its head, saying Donbass forces “were the first to fire heavy artillery.” Truth is polar opposite.
Trump’s policy on Ukraine remains unclear, saying little more than urging both sides to resolve things diplomatically – impossible when Kiev chooses war, not peace.
The Guardian: Unnamed “(d)iplomats and analysts in Kiev say they believe Russia’s current goal is not to take more territory from Ukraine but to push the territories already seized back into Ukraine on terms advantageous to Moscow, giving them a long-term foothold in the country.”
Fact: Russia seized no Ukrainian territory. It seeks none now. It’s gone all-out for conflict resolution unsuccessfully because Obama undermined its good faith efforts. It seeks cooperative relations with Ukraine and all other countries – hard facts media scoundrels ignore.
The Guardian quoted Klimkin, saying “(w)e need to get Russia out of Donbass: directly in terms of Russian troops, but also Russian mercenaries, weaponry and all kind of tricks and indirect influence.”
Fact: No Russian troops or mercenaries operate in Ukraine. Donbass freedom fighters ably defend their republic against Kiev’s fascist regime they reject.
They deserve universal support against pure evil dark forces, headquartered in Kiev, installed by Washington.
