The above is some of the latest MSM fake news rubbish — while suppressing reality on the ground in Ukraine.
According to NYT fake news, “hardened” resistance by Kiev forces (sic) “stalled Russian (advances) in eastern Ukraine (sic).”
“(A)ssessments (by) Western (regimes indicate that) Russia’s eastern offensive was faltering (sic), hampered by logistical issues and stiff Ukrainian resistance (sic).”
According to unnamed “analysts, Russian forces (are) beset with logistical problems and disarray among its troops (sic).”
“Russian losses in (Ukraine are) staggering (sic).”
A “quarter of Russian units are combat ineffective (sic).”
“Some of Russia’s most elite units, including its Airborne Forces, suffered the highest levels of attrition (sic).”
It’ll “take years for Russia to reconstitute these forces (sic).”
Around “15,000 Russian soldiers have been killed (sic)…twice as many…wounded (sic).”
“Many Russian units (went) back to Belarus and Russia to recover (sic).”
“Ukraine destroyed several Russian command centers in the east and south (sic).”
Admitting that it’s “not possible to verify the (above) claims,” the Times failed to call them what they are — infowar propaganda rubbish.
Yet according to the self-styled newspaper of record, the above trash is “news that’s fit to print (sic)” — no matter how worlds apart from reality on the ground.
Pretense about Ukrainian forces holding their own ignores how overwhelmingly they’ve been pummeled on the ground.
Reality awaits to hit home like a hammer.
Ukrainian conscripts, Nazified forces and likeminded mercenaries are no match against superior Russian military and tactical strength.
The Times and other MSM feature fake news over the real thing.
They’ll surely continue to reinvent reality until pretense is too entirely obliterated to hold up any more.
And this over-the-top WaPo rubbish:
“Ukraine can win (sic),” it hyperventilated, adding:
Russian forces “lost the battle of Kiev (sic)” — not waged.
Their “progress has been slow and uneven (sic).”
“Once Ukrainian forces incorporate new weapons and equipment” — destroyed by Russia before reaching them or shortly after arriving, Kiev — “should be poised to launch a counteroffensive that could regain lost territory (sic).”
And this WaPo rubbish:
“Putin…will double down…with chemical or nuclear weapons (sic).”
He “does not have a big pool of trained military manpower on call (sic).”
He’s having “difficulty equipping” Russia’s military (sic).”
Its tanks and armored vehicles in (Ukraine) are antiquated and dilapidated (sic).”
It’s “losing its best military equipment in Ukraine and will find it hard to field replacements (sic).”
It’s “running short on precision-guided munitions (sic).”
Its “troops create more targets for Ukraine’s modern weapons (sic).”
“We should not allow (Putin’s) threats (sic) to deter us from providing Ukraine with every weapon it needs to win (sic).”
Since Russia’s SMO began, I can’t recall anything by MSM to match the above trash.
WaPo didn’t just turn truth on its head.
It trampled on indisputable facts enough to give infowar propaganda a more besmirched name than already.
And this WSJ fake news, citing the puppet Zelensky regime as its source, saying:
“Ukraine on Monday said it sank two Russian Naval vessels in the Black Sea with drone strikes (sic).”
Video footage it released was unrelated to Russia’s SMO.
Even the Journal was unsure whether Russian vessels were hit, adding:
“(I)t wasn’t clear whether they had sunk.”
Separately on May 1, AP News surprised, saying:
“An undetermined number of Americans — many with military backgrounds — are thought to be in (Ukraine) battling Russian forces…(along with so-called) volunteers from other countries.”
Do their ranks include Pentagon and CIA elements directing them?
Is their presence in Ukraine part of US proxy war on Russia?
Russian forces captured numerous foreign fighters.
When information on interrogating them is released, will it show direct US/NATO involvement in combating Russia in Ukraine?
US/UK, and other NATO military personnel have been training and directing Ukrainian forces for years.
Notably, this has been ongoing since Russia’s SMO began.
And it shows by how poorly Ukrainian forces are performing against overwhelmingly superior Russian military and tactical strength.
